Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance—even her closest friends—and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions—for Hell—and she possesses a unique skill set that has the King of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he’s as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance.

Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn’t get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.

But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay…for all of them.
I've been itching for this book for months and it did NOT disappoint at all!


I loved this book SO much, I couldn't think of words for it for nearly a week! That is love!

So, let's start with Frannie. Frannie was a simple, non-flashy person. She just had a complicated set of emotions and a kick ass power. I felt kind of bad for her, because she didn't want this much attention...yet at the same time I envied she got that kind of attention. But she was strong and courageous and brave, all while holding Heaven and Hell in the palms of  her hands, literally!

Then there was Luc. Delicious, disturbed, demon that he is. Despite his hard exterior, he was such a softie and he loved Frannie so much. It was pure and good and genuine and SWOON WORTHY. I sigh just thinking of him.

There were a few minor faults to the book. The first 20 pages or so, the tone of the book was just...odd. I can't describe why or anything and the writing didn't change drastically out of the sky. Maybe it had to do with the books I was reading before and getting into the groove of things? I think it's more likely this was a me thing than the book itself.

My only other problem was that it was kind of impossible to be Team Gabe because we don't get to see his side of the story. But, I believe that he'll get his turn in future books, so that balances out too. Though, now I just have to worry I'll be going back and forth until the series ends! xD

The action in this story was genuine, making it more than just a love story. And it also raises some genuine points about Heaven vs. Hell, made me think of how I see it, even if that wasn't the point. That was probably just 8 years of religion classes trying to make itself worth something...don't think it worked.

This is a must read for everyone, I think. EVERYONE. Maybe it's not your kind of story, but it's good to stretch your wings and try new things! Doooooo it.
