Book Shelf: Soul Crossed (Of Demons and Angels #1) by Lisa Gail Green

"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 COMPULSION and the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy

"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.

Soul Crossed by Lisa Gail Green is the first book in her new series Of Demons and Angels and proves to be a fast, fun and highly enjoyable novel that left me raring for more!

Told through varying POV’s Star Crossed introduces us to Grace and Josh, two very different individuals whose lives change forever when they wake up to find they’re both dead and being offered second chances in their afterlives. Having lived a selfish and reckless life, Josh finds himself waking up as a Demon in the middle of Hell, whereas Heaven sent Grace is offered the chance to become an Angel if she can manage to save the soul of teenager Camden; the same soul Josh has been tasked with corrupting. 

Facing the possibility of eternal damnation in the bowls of Hell if he can’t influence Camden to commit evil acts and damn his soul, the last thing Josh expects is to fall for Grace; especially seeing as they don’t actually know what the other is. Battling to claim Cam’s soul for their respective sides, Grace and Josh are about to discover there might be something more powerful than both Heaven and Hell; love.

I have to say I was really entertained by this novel. The writing was light and forward moving and made Soul Crossed a quick and easy read. Told through the dual point of views of both main characters, the dialogue was light and witty and wonderfully entertaining. It wasn’t too over powering and managed to compliment the Heaven versus Hell dynamic perfectly. 

I really liked both main characters author Lisa Gail Green introduces us to. Grace and Josh were very different, but still managed to fall for one another and effect the other’s actions. Personally I think they “fell in love” with each other a bit fast for my liking, but at the same time I honestly felt their chemistry and their connection throughout the story. The attraction between them is there from the moment they meet and as Grace manages to bring out so much good in Josh that it’s hard not to become invested in their relationship. 

He may have led a selfish life, and is now much do evil things as a Demon, but caring for Grace opens Josh’s eyes a lot and his assignment with Cam allows him to see what evil truly is. The face of evil isn’t what you’ll expect when heading into this novel.

A fast, endearing read, I was very happy with how Soul Crossed ended and find myself highly eager for the next book. Soul Crossed offers a sneak peak at the next novel, Soul Corrupted, and I for one can’t wait to see what happens to Grace and Josh next!
