Book Review: Personal Demons

Title:  Personal Demons
Author:  Lisa Desrochers
Publisher:  Tor Teen (September 14th 2010)
Genre:  Young Adult
Series:  Personal Demons #1
Pages:  364

Synopsis:  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 $0.02

Wow! That doesn't even begin to explain how awesome this book is! It's incredible! From the get-go, I was in love with Luc - Luc Cain. He's everything bad. The ultimate bad boy! Everything about this book got me hooked! All the twists and turns, the way the story unfolded, the way the story came together at the end - you just know there is going to be a second book following! Frannie Cavanaugh - wow, did this girl get under my skin sometimes! The way how one day she went from Luc to immediately running into Gabe's arms the next. Like I said from the get-go, I was Team Luc, but towards the end, I began to see the light in Gabe, and thought, "hey, he's super hot too!" I mean, how can one write about two leading male characters and make them just as hot as the other? That's insane! When Frannie was with Luc, I was rooting and screaming and squirming for them. Then when she ran to Gabe, I was doing the same! No wonder it was so hard for her to choose! It was extremely difficult for me! Ms. Desrochers' writing is fun to read - especially reading from Luc's point of view. As a girl, when you get to read from the guy's point of view, it is always more intriguing because for a while, you get to experience what goes through their minds. I loved everything about this book - the characters, the plot, the romance - don't even get me started on the romance - like Ms. Desrochers says, it's "hotter than hell!" Definite read!


  1. Thanks for the awesome review! So glad you enjoyed Personal Demons =)

  2. I like reading from a guys' pov to. I loved the book as well!

  3. I enjoyed this book but a few things bugged me more then they did you, I think. It was still a good book though!

  4. I can't wait to read this one! I love angel/demon mythology, and I was raised in a devout Catholic family, so I'm interested to see what I'll think of Frannie as a character. Glad you liked it!

  5. I loved Personal Demons! I thank one of my teachers for letting me read it. I think there should be a second adventure. I would love to see what will happen to Frannie and Luc!
