Review: Personal Demons By Lisa Desrochers

Personal Demons (Personal Demons, #1)

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She has spent years keeping everyone at a distance—-even her closest friends—-and it seems as if her senior year is going to 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 is on a mission. He’s been sent from Hell itself to claim Frannie’s soul. It should be easy—-all he has to do is get her to sin, and Luc is as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance. But he has to work fast, because if the infernals are after her, the celestials can’t be far behind. And sure enough, it’s not long before the angel Gabriel shows up, willing to do anything to keep Luc from getting what he came for. It isn’t long before they find themselves fighting for more than just Frannie’s soul.
But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay . . . for all of them.(Goodreads)

Review and Rating: 4.5
I really liked this book but I had to take of a little for the (few) predictable parts. Yes this is a book about angels and demons but its not like the other cliche plots currently out there. The characters are well written and have depth. Frannie is realistic and strong unlike a lot of other female lead characters and Luc is written with a realistic male voice which is quite rare and it makes his character all that much more enjoyable. This book is hot, engrossing, and well paced leaving you unwilling to put it down. It will pull you in from page one and have you dying to read the sequel just like me!
