Book Summary: 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.


Book Review Review: When Luc comes from hell to tag Frannie's soul he ends up falling in love. Something that is supposed to be impossible for a demon. Things get even more complicated for Frannie when Gabe a dominion angel comes to tag her soul for heaven. It's fight for both good and evil, angel vs. demon, and of love. Luc finds out the real reason that Frannie is wanted so much by hell. I'm gonna leave the rest unsaid, so go read the book. I absolutely loved this book. The whole demon vs .angel thing was great. I liked how it was written and the whole plot of the story was really well done. I thought that Luc was the best leading male character. He had the whole bad boy thing going and he was interesting. I also liked how part of the book was done from his part of view, for this gave me a better connection with the characters. I thought that Gabe was a little too good and I didn't like how he was so sure that Frannie believed in God and all that. Also he was a little boring. This wasn't a big deal and I actually thought this made the book better. Frannie was an amazing leading female character. I loved reading about how she was dealing with the death of her dead brother even though it was a long time ago. I also liked how she had her struggles and her share of flaws. This detail made her more believable. I also liked how with this book you could really connect with the characters on a personal level. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy/ teen romance novels. Overall I thought this was one of my favorite books that I have ever read. It had a little bit of everything. Romance, action ect. The Hell vs. Heaven was the very best part of it. The epic battle of the ongoing war between good and evil. JUST AMAZING!!

Rating: A++ amazing


Oh and here is a video for Personal Demons and the cover for Original Sin YAY!

The music video for You Found me by The Fray. This is the song that Frannie and Gabe were listening to when they were studying in her room.
