Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers

Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
Goodreads – YA – September 14th 2010 by Tor Teen
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.

This book sounds great – and not just because I seem to have completely jumped aboard the ooh-angels!trend in YA. What drew me to Personal Demons was the same thing that drew me to Mercy by Rebecca Lim – the choice between heaven and hell not being as clear cut as we imagine. People have been squeeing non-stop about this book, and I hope it will live up to the ever mounting expectations!

BTW, this cover an older non-final one for the book. The new one just creeps me out, as the characters look about 30 (which would be fine if they actually were, ya know, 30).
