The desks are grouped in twos and are nearly full. I walk up the center aisle to Mr. He turns his slender face toward me, glasses perched just at the tip of his long, straight nose.
I need an admit slip. Butler and Miss Cavanaugh. Everyone from Miss Cavanaugh up will shift one seat to your right. I sit in the seat Mr. Snyder motions to, between Mr. Butler—a tall, skinny kid with glasses, bad skin, and obvious self- esteem issues—and Miss Cavanaugh, whose sapphire-blue eyes stare straight into mine. No self- esteem issues there. I feel the play of hot electricity under my skin as I stare back, sizing her up.
A definite prospect. Tall, dark, and sorta dangerous. And, bonus. Snyder is having me move down a seat to make room for him. God forbid we should ever be out of alphabetical order. My eyes work slowly over his black T-shirt and jeans, not to mention the body underneath—very nice—as he saunters over and sits to my left. He folds his tall frame into the attached desk and chair with the grace of a sly black cat, and I swear the temperature in here just shot up ten degrees.
Since Mr. I feel like he just checked me out from the inside out and maybe kinda liked what he saw. I think they captured the essence of your program nicely. Page I stumble on the words when he leans closer and I catch a hint of cinnamon. Snyder comes to my rescue. Pick Mystery Boy. He smiles at me, then his gaze shifts to Mystery Boy. Cain, will you continue please. Tom leaped silently.
He wrenched the club free. The first time he knew he had missed and struck a shoulder, but the second time his crushing blow found the head, and as the heavy man sank down, three more blows found his head. Savoring it, really. He lets Mystery Boy read through the end of the chapter, which is much longer than anyone else has read all year.
I glance around the room and everyone—even tough guy, smart-ass Marshal Johnson—seems hypnotized. Snyder snaps abruptly out of his trance. Thank you, Mr. That will be sufficient. Beautifully done. All right, class, the chapter outline on Mr.
You have the rest of the period to work. That was a nice little trick. Why would you memorize Steinbeck? Just a thing where we send letters to kids in Pakistan. Kind of like pen pals, I guess. I fix it before answering her. She looks at me, all incredulity. No extenuating circumstances. No second chances? She shifts back in her chair and folds her arms across her chest, scrutinizing me.
Done something you were sorry for? I pushed a little power at her without really meaning or needing to. But I like the reaction.
I search deep in those eyes to find the root of it. I feel Hell-bent on making her happy. Just the tiniest push is all it would take. Stop it. Where the Hell did that come from? Not like that, anyway. Lots of promise. This is going to be interesting. She blinks as if startled from a dream and looks down at her empty composition book. I don't have any problem with her having feelings for two guys Luc and Gabe , my problem is the way the situation is handled.
In addition, when discovered that she has this immense power she becomes selfish. I'm sorry, but when you discover you have the ability to become the next Hitler, there must be a sense of personal responsibility. No, not for Frannie. For those who might claim I am being too hard on Frannie, let me compare her to the character of Aang from Avatar: At twelve he discovered that he had to become the Jesus of his people.
While he did angst slightly in the beginning, he realized that you have a responsibility to other people not just yourself. Hopefully Frannie will learn that, but I do not care to read further to find out. D- My problem with book like this is that they are not trying to do anything deep. This a story of Heaven and Hell fighting for the soul of a girl who could be the next Hitler and the hook is a love triangle.
The romance isn't moving and the characters aren't that complex or compelling. View all 8 comments. Feb 01, Courtney Allison Moulton rated it it was amazing Shelves: Frannie is a kind, smart girl who questions the world around her and made for a very interesting narrator.
She really holds her own in a story filled with powerful, supernatural creatures. Luc is sexy and written with a realistic male voice, and he and Frannie have so much depth to their characters. I was never bored once while reading this and only put it down once. The exciting overall story arc has me itching for the sequels! Mar 01, K. I couldn't get past Chapter 15 which is just a bit more than half way so I feel like I gave this a fair shot. The book advertises itself as a paranormal romance, a tug-of-war between Heaven and Hell, seductively represented by two obviously gorgeous guys called Gabe riel and Luc ifer.
Guess who's on what team! And that's exactly what you get. No more, no less. Personal Demons is as narrow a book as I've ever come across. I was honestly gutted when by page A rant. I was honestly gutted when by page 30 I realized I wasn't going to like it. After reading some really fun reviews and seeing how people reacted to the book, I got excited myself.
Who doesn't want to read a book with characters oozing sexual appeal? As long as the book is also oozing with quality which this is not, sadly. And I think that's the problem. The author got too caught up in trying to entice the readers, trying to make Frannie, Luc and Gabe and their scenes together as smoldering as possible that she consequently forgot about a little thing called plot development and character growth.
You know, those troublesome yet necessary things you usually get in most novels. Now, I said I didn't get past Chapter 15, so this review is irrelevant, I know, but let me just get this out incomplete on its basis of opinion but unless the book takes a dramatic turn after page and decides to get good, then I think this review is still fairly accurate.
The characters were one-sided. I appreciated that the writer gave them their individual problems to make them sympathetic and give them the appearance of depth and complexity. Frannie is flat and unpleasant to be around. Not to mention consistently mildly vulgar. I say mildly because it wasn't like she was dropping the F bombs or anything and I suppose its faithful to reality because people do swear.
But for someone who comes from a Catholic family religious enough to be branded as a Catholic family , exactly how many times does she incorporate the word Hell into her sentences, whether telling people to go there or simply uttering it because she can't think of anything else? Its unattractive when the main character's vocabulary is limited to "mmm This book was screaming for a threesome. I didn't enjoy it all. First, it happened way too fast. First chapter and Frannie and Luc were already sending chills down each others' spines.
A little balance wouldn't hurt, you know. From the get go we're already exposed to their sexual tension on Full Power. It would've been nice if the author had started small and built from that. And for someone who keeps her emotions bottled up and people at bay, Frannie seems to be quite the boy magnet. Left and right, there's a guy leering over her.
The romance between Frannie, Luc and Gabe became redundant and tedious after a very short while. When she's with Luc, she's drooling over him.
Oh, but when she's with Gabe, she's drooling over him. That's literally what every scene was about. Her looking between Luc and Gabe, confused and so sexually frustrated. And since she alternates between them, you can be sure that the sexual tension is maintained on high. I swear, with the amount of electricity they sent coursing through each others' veins while staring deeply into each others' eyes as if reading the other one's soul, I was surprised they didn't just die right there.
Every page, people, every page. Okay, maybe, like every other page. I was torn between giving this one star or two stars. In the end, I decided that mercy was the higher and harder road over justice so I'm giving it a one. View all 3 comments. I love a bad boy, but when that said bad boy is trying to redeem himself? Anyway, great new book about fighting one's destiny against the forces of Heaven and Hell.

Frannie is the black sheep in her very religious Catholic family. Never having recovered from a childhood accident, she blames herself for the life lost and finds Hell knocking on her door. Cool, swave, break-your neck kinda hot. He's out to tag Frannie for Hell, and he'll stop at nothing to claim h Luc, so hot! He's out to tag Frannie for Hell, and he'll stop at nothing to claim her as his prize. But it turns out, she's not so easy.
Somewhere along the way, Luc notices himself changing. Softening to her and finding himself in a very uncomfortable situation. Gabe, an angel from Heaven, swoops in to save the day, only to realize, like Luc, there's more than meets the eye when it comes to Frannie. With Hell fast on their heels, the three form a somewhat unconventional team to save Frannie from herself, Hell and a destiny she wants nothing to do with.
A great beginning to a very original new series. Can't wait for the next installment. Though there are three main characters, the story thus far is told from alternating POVs, Frannie and Luc's. Now I'm team Luc, so I'm hoping the series will stay it's course, but maybe, for you Gabe fans out there, Original Sin July will level out the playing field. Nov 03, Katerina Kondrenko rated it did not like it Shelves: My eyes were hurt, my brains could die if not Shadow and Bone's healing sessions.
Maybe I'll tell you what this book was about later, just to save your time and nerves. Right now just believe me, you don't want to read this epitome of delusion. View all 13 comments. Sep 04, Monica rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was giddy with excitement as I started this book and I read it straight through in one sitting, ok, with a few random 'OMG' tweets between pages and chapters.
This book definitely did not disappoint. I love most of all, since it seems to be becoming a pattern in book recently, that the ending did not have a cliff-hanger. There is definitely enough opening for a second novel but I wasn't left with that 'stolen puppy' feeling and my mouth hanging open. I am unable to eloquently break this book do I was giddy with excitement as I started this book and I read it straight through in one sitting, ok, with a few random 'OMG' tweets between pages and chapters.
I am unable to eloquently break this book down by characters, writing, and plot because it was all amazing I am going to tell you what I loved and didn't love. Let's start with what I did not love.
I did not love that Gabe didn't get his own point-of-view. I would have loved to have known what was going on in his sexy head. I totally think he should have had his own POV from the beginning of the book, that way I can feel justified for wanting to be on Team Gabe, because he would have then actually stood a chance.
I also did not like that Frannie was so What I did love. I love that this book has a nice comfortable paranormal romance feel someone intertwined with a bigger-than-life feel.
This book is about the sway of good and evil, heaven and hell, I would say that is pretty important. I love that Frannie is a strong independent women and knows what she wants, in life and in her man I can totally appreciate her wanting to live her own life without being controlled but at the same time see comment above.
I love the raw sexual energy seeping from the pages of this book, it is hot, and so very right. I also loved the concept of the smells associated with emotions, don't we always say animals can smell fear, but Read this book and find out!
As for me, I have developed a liking for cinnamon. Jul 23, Wicked Lil Pixie Natasha rated it it was amazing. Luc wants Frannie to, but for a different reason.
The tension in the relationships is so real, it sizzles. Speaking of pages, the action was something else, the pages flew by. Lisa Derochers has done YA a service with such a fabulous debut. Jul 10, Kendare Blake rated it it was amazing. Sympathy for the Devil? But sympathy for a demon?
In Personal Demons, Frannie, a world-toughened Catholic girl with faith problems winds up in the middle of a tug-of-war between heaven and hell, with an angel and a demon both fighting for her soul. Of course, they quickly find themselves fighting over more than that. Luc the demon and Gabe the angel both make for intriguing leading men. In fact, some of the most riveting scenes in the book are the ones where the two a Sympathy for the Devil? In fact, some of the most riveting scenes in the book are the ones where the two are sparking off each other, with smartassery and well-placed glares.
The plot moves ahead quickly but smoothly, and Frannie really grows on you. Probably because she has a spine and a mind and wants a life of her own. However, I felt myself outraged at the frankly demonist attitudes portrayed in the book.
Poor Luc was persecuted at every turn. In today's society, for people to treat someone so poorly just because he's a horrible, soul-sucking, fiendish piece of hellspawn Personal Demons is a great read. Original Sin can't come out soon enough! And don't overlook the hellhounds. Jul 24, Mary BookHounds rated it it was amazing Shelves: Don't place this book in with the rash of paranormal romances directed at teens lately. This has everything and more than any adult novel out today has to offer.
There is romance, tension and intrigue all with a PG rating. I think that the author had to work twice as hard to write this one since the story line didn't rely on sexual situations to get to the point.
All I can say is that Frannie is one feisty character.
She doesn't do what she is supposed to and doesn't act the way she should. She Don't place this book in with the rash of paranormal romances directed at teens lately. She has her own mind which is a wonderful trait these days. I fell in love with all of the characters I read this one straight through in one night and I think you will probably do the same.
Julia Brennan - Inner Demons Video There are some references of drugs, alcohol and sex, but not much more than any television show.
This story is best suited for older teens and yes, adults are going to love this one. Now, where is the next book in the series? I was kinda left hanging here. Jan 27, Andrea Cremer rated it it was amazing.
Lisa Desrochers' debut is fantastic, full of shivers, surprises, and sultry romance. You'll be laughing one moment and shrieking the next - such a great read! Aug 25, Bookaholics rated it really liked it. Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers Paranormal Romance - September 14th, 4 stars This was a fun and exciting new series with darker tones about how one girl can change the fate of Heaven and Hell. Frannie is a good Catholic girl.
But she has a secret. On a downward spiral Frannie is wondering if being a good girl is really worth it…. Dark, dangerous and sinfully delicious. But Luc knows if he fails then a demon with less scruples will be coming…. I loved this book. Because of this I felt the main characters really come out.
I found them easy to relate to and very appealing. Frannie and Luc have a lot of depth. This book really drew me in. In fact, an equally attractive angel named Gabriel comes down to compete with Luc and Frannie is caught between 2 very hunky guys! Because there are expectations for Frannie… A thrilling read with enough romance and dark fantasy. It kept me turning the pages in record time. This is a winner and I am definitely getting the next?!
Aug 19, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: I must say I have read alot of vampire and werewolf books, but angels and demons was new for me. Personal Demons I thought the book was very well written, with the expception of the overuse of 'cause, and this mostly bothered the English teacher in me!
LOL Personal Demons is about a high school girl, Frannie, and the struggles she faces while trying to overcoming the guilt she has from her past as well as being fought over by two very attractive males. Unbeknownst to her, the two very attractive males just happe I must say I have read alot of vampire and werewolf books, but angels and demons was new for me.
Unbeknownst to her, the two very attractive males just happen to be fighting over who will "tag" her--heaven or hell.
