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.

Personal Demons is a sexy, intense and action-packed thrill ride that takes us back and forth between light- the sweet angel, Gabe. And dark- the dangerous and seductive demon, Luc.

This novel definitely balances all of the things that paranormal fans will go gaga over; handsome angels, sexy demons, intense intimacy, suspenseful action and love triangle to top all love triangles. And let’s not forget that Frannie is a kick-ass character who refuses to take her newly dubbed fate laying down. I really enjoyed her persistency to keep herself grounded, even with an angel and a demon pulling her in two different directions that could mean the end of normalcy for her.

The one thing, and probably the only thing, that threw me off about this book was Frannie’s back and forth jumping between Luc and Gabe. She loves Luc one day, possibly loves Gabe the next, hates Luc and then loves him all over again .. it left me so dizzy at times. I did enjoy her conflicted feelings, because it even gave me conflicting feelings of what team I wanted to be on, but I felt like the dance between the two could’ve been knocked down a few levels.

Overall, Personal Demons is an intense page-turner that’s sinfully sexy and edgy and passionate and gah. The lines between good and evil are blurred in this wonderfully written debut, and I urge all of my fellow paranormal fans to pick this one up immediately!

  3. I agree! This novel was intense and sexy! Frannie's back-and-forth was a little frustrating, but it was still a fun read!
