Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers

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.

I started reading Personal Demons right after I told myself that I wasn’t going to read anymore paranormal books. Despite Personal Demons being paranormal, I really loved it. Lisa has amazing writing skills and she is able to shape the characters into people who work with the situation at hand, really well.
Personal Demons is one of my favorite young adult paranormal books.
Usually in paranormals, the male lead (in this case being either Luc or Gabriel) tends to be perceived as totally gorgeous/can do no wrong. In Personal Demons, it wasn’t like that. We could see that both boys are deeply flawed, and characters are way better that way.

Personal Demons was addicting, well-written, and surprising. I can’t wait for the second book in the series!
