My Opinion :
Two hot guys in one book? I'm in!
I mean it! That's what I thought while reading the summary. I mean, who doesn't love a hot guy. And, imagine two hot guys? That'S like, paradise of something!
Frannie is a Catholic girl. Even though she stopped believing in God after the incident that killed her brother and twin. So, she got kicked out of catholic school and got sent to a normal high school.Then, Luc, a (hot) demon (demons are always hot, just so you know) comes to tag her soul for hell. And to do so, he has to make her do a sin. But, Frannie isn't just any girl; she'S special. Not special as if 'crazy-in-the-head' , but special as if 'hell-and-heaven-are-trying-to-get-to-her-first-because-of-her-powers' kind of special. Yup. And then, the other hot guy comes in. He's an Angel, and is named Gabe. Frannie
I especially loved Luc, and I didn't like that Frannie wouldn't choose him! I mean, demons are hot as hell (pun intended. Well, kinda). Luc was just... badass. He loved Frannie, which made him less like a demon and more like a human.
Frannie was a great main character, aside from the fact that she couldn't recognize the real Luc *sigh*, and also that she couldn't figure out who she liked best between the two hot boys (I mean, isn't it obvious; Luc. But, Frannie, you can always take Gabe and I'll take Luc!)
I didn't really like Frannie's friends, though. I mean, I didn't adore them, nor hated. I though they were okay.
And Gabe. Gabe was just... too angely (you know what I mean). It'S just that I always love any badass boy (only in books, though), then goody-two-shoes boys.
The writing was really well-paced; not too fast and not too slow, which, I like. Well, I like any pace, actually; it just has to go with the story. I also really LOVED the way the author wrote the story; I really liked the vocabulary, too.
The thing about the cover is that I don't think Frannie, in my mind, looks like the girl on the cover. But Gabe does look a bit like that, though!
I will be reading Original Sin soon, so look out for a review of that too!
