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.

My Thoughts:  When I first heard about this book, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! Even though it went out for an ARC tour on the tour site I run, I waited until the book hit shelves and bought myself a final copy before I started. We are introduced to Frannie who is your basic girl whose family is very religious (catholic). I mean come on, the girls sisters names all start with Mary. Crazy right? Two guys show up at precisely the same time and start going after Frannie's affection. First there is Luc; hot, sexy as hell, smokin, good looking Luc. Luc comes from hell (yes directly) and he is sent to tag Frannie's soul. Of course with every demon there also has to come an angel. Than we are introduced to Gabe; an angel sent right from heaven to tag Frannie's soul. Both guys are after Frannie and she must choose one or the other. She feels major attraction for both and  goes back and forth quite a bit. I adore love triangles so this one was perfect for me.

At times I did want to slap Frannie. Sometimes she would get annoying but honestly I think it was her personality and you just have to learn to love it. Maybe an acquired taste. She also has a few friends named Taylor and Riley who add laughter to the storyline. They are right there telling her hot the new guys are and how she should go after them and not let them out of her sight! HAHA! 

I loved all the side characters, her family, the other demons from hell that come to visit. I also loved how we got to see both Frannie and Luc's prospective as it switches between them. The book was very easy to get into and easy to get lost in the book. We also do find out why everyone is vouching for Frannie's soul so much. I can't wait to read more from Lisa!

Overall: I've heard mostly positive reviews on this one but I've also heard a few negative ones. I really loved Personal Demons but if your not a fan of love triangles (which I am) or somewhat annoying lead characters you may not like this one. Its your basic teenage drama and if your too old to enjoy this, you probably won't want to finish it. I may be an adult but I can easily get sucked into the world of hot demons and angels.

Cover: This cover is pretty sexy. You can tell both guys are hot just from looking at it! Smokin!
