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.
Frannie's indecisiveness drove me crazy. It was like a ping pong match, but I will admit that it was very entertaining and exciting. I also liked the though that people were tagged for hell or heaven. I didn't feel really connect to Frannie's grief about her brother, because I have lost a sister and experienced it at around the same time. Luc was the bad boy that everyone loves and Gabe seemed so sweet. I adored both of them for different reasons. I loved that there was a switch of Luc and Frannie as narrators. I wish that Gabe's view was in there, because I didn't feel as connected to him. I found the plot of Personal Demons to be exciting and kept me at the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. It wasn't the most original book, but it had a few unique attributes that made the story seem new. Desrochers' writing was amazing and exciting, I felt immersed in the story every second. I would recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance.
