Summary from Goodreads:

"A wickedly romantic story that will have you cheering for Lisa Gail Green’s addictive
storytelling. SOUL CROSSED is devilishly delicious!" — Martina Boone, author of

"Soul Crossed blurs the lines between good and evil with addictive characters and plot that will
have you eagerly turning the pages." ~Kelly Hashway, author of the Touch of Death series.

One Demon.

One Angel.

One Soul.

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.

My Thoughts:

Alright, so I'm a sucker for dual POV. Well, this has it.Grace and Josh both get their own time on the page and it alternates between the entire book. I love getting to know the characters more through their internal dialogue. Definitely a great asset to character development.

Love love love the beginning chapters. We start off with Josh in Hell, not really knowing where he is until a man comes up and tells him it's either torture or a favor. And then, Grace is talking about how cold Heaven is. I think this is one of the best times I've seen such contrast that I know I'll love the rest of the story.

I love the Angels versus Demons theme. This wasn't a stereotypical book about the supernatural--this was a completely original idea that deals with either saving or destroying a soul. And then of course the two fall in love. Whoops.

I just love the writing in this. It's very well-done and a pleasure to read. The plot is so wonderful and the characters are precious.

Love this book. I am so looking forward to #2!
