Genre: Young Adult-Supernatural
Author: Lisa Desrochers
Publisher: Tor

Book: Bought

"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

Heaven or Hell? Which would you choose??? This question does not inlude me. I know which I would choose. Heaven, of course. But still, two hott guys from two different places and you can only pick one.

I like that this is once again a different type of book. Demons and Angels fighting for one thing. A girl that has the fate of the world in her hands. And if you ask me, that is a whole lot of pressure. Frannie is suddenly bombarded by two guys with the same cause.  She is completely unaware of what they are both after, her soul. Both need her soul to be tagged. Which will tagged her first?

The book was written perfectly. I love how Ms. Desrochers was able to write both sides really well. She was able to capivate me, hooking to both Heaven and Hell. The fight for Frannie's soul is just divine! I love how she was pulled in every direction and of course all the choices she has. This book also proves that no matter what side your on, you always have a choice.

The plot, the drama and the way everything tied in was great.  Personal Demons was a great October read and left me hanging for more. Though the question stands, what are your personal demons???

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I really want to read this one! I've read mixed reviews but I love the premise and I'm always a sucker for a love triangle situation:) Moving this one up my TBR list!

  2. I absolutely adore this book! I didn't expect it as much as I did, but the whole book surprised me! I loved all the cliché's she used and I absolutely adore Luc!

  3. Thanks for the lovely review! So glad you enjoyed Personal Demons =)

  4. I'm having a really hard time getting into this book. I set it aside to read something else. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it though.

  5. Savy, I've been kind of on the fence about this one because when I first heard about this book it seems to revolve around a love triangle, and I'm kind of tired of those at the moment, but I really value your opinion on books, and after reading your review, I think I want to give this one a try.
