Josh lived a reckless, selfish life, so upon his death, escaping the eternal torments of Hell by assuming the role of a powerful, soul-corrupting demon is an easy choice. His first soul assignment doesn’t seem too hard: the mortal Camden is already obsessed with weapons, pain, and torture. If only Josh wasn’t distracted by Cam's beautiful friend, Grace.
Grace never expected to die violently at age sixteen, but now she’s an Angel, responsible for saving a soul. She can already see past Camden’s earthly flaws, so the job should be be easy. If only that handsome, playboy Josh would stop getting in the way.
It’s forbidden for an Angel to be with a Demon, so if Josh and Grace stop resisting each other, the results would be disastrous.
And only one can claim Cam’s soul.
I gave this book a two or three stars on goodreads. I was really enjoying reading the love story between Josh and Grace. The characters were described really well, Grace was angelic but believable and Josh well he is a diamond in the rough. I gained interest in the story as their relationship grew, I like the references to Romeo and Julliet as though trying to describe Josh and Gracie's relationship through the story of the other tragic lovers.
Now to what I didn't like. Cam - I get that I was not supposed to like Cam and he is evil however it didn't seem very believable. I could forgive this and accept that the villain is not very strong because the love story is good but then Cam goes and kills a dog!! For me that is not an acceptable topic for a YA book and I was quite disturbed by this part of the story to be honest.
I liked the morals in the book though, basically we all know that we should be good and forgiving and kind but this book really sends that home.
Thanks For Reading
