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.

One word: HOT!

If you've been following me on twitter you've heard about my little issue with getting a copy of this. I went to 3 different book stores and 2 different libraries before finally getting Personal Demons. It was worth it with all of that Luc and Gabe though!

It all starts with a simple task for Luc as he's suppose to tag just another soul for Hell. But when things get a bit out of control with his feelings for Frannie things get hot. Hot like Hell. (Yeah, that was a bad pun) Luc is that guy that turns heads. He's arrogant, dark, as well as being really passionate. When there's one guy there's always another. This guy happens to be Gabe *swoons*, who's literally an angel. He's after Frannie for the same task to tag her soul, but for Heaven. In a way Luc and Gabe are kind of a like. It's just that Gabe is a bit more caring and gentleman-like than Luc. Either way, both guys would give up anything for Frannie.

The story was told in two points of views, Frannie's and Luc's. While in Luc's point of view I really looked at Frannie differently. I started off thinking Frannie was just going to be some kind of week gal who falls for these two guys. But when I got deeper into the story I found Frannie developing into a different person who's struggling to get out of that secret dark spot she's in.

Personal Demons was a very enjoyable book that made me laugh and scream and then repeating my strange cycle.

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5

If you didn't notice my button over on the left, I'm a Team Gabe :D
