Soul Crossed (Of Demons and Angels #1) by Lisa Gail Green
**I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review**
Heaven and Hell…Grace and Josh…both sent from opposite sides to claim a single soul. They are both new to their respective angel and demon status – recently deceased and handpicked for the job of returning to earth and swaying an important person to choose the light or the dark. Enter Camdem – he’s invisible, he stutters, his hair covers his face, and he’s a little strange. But for party boy Josh, getting Cam’s soul is a piece of cake…that is if it weren’t for Cam’s friend Grace that is like little-miss-sunshine – she’s in this to earn her wings and see her family again. Josh of course thinks Grace is hot, and Grace can’t deny that Josh has a certain bad-boy quality she could enjoy – but the best part is that neither one knows who the other one is working for.
They both find themselves around each other a lot – seeing as they are both trying to win Cam’s soul, but in the interest of achieving his goal, Josh is resigned to “letting” Cam get a swing at Grace’s heart – which he thinks he has a shot at thanks to Josh’s pushing. He wants Cam to be as bad as possible, so if that means corrupting a teenage girl in the process, he’s all for it. But Grace isn’t interested in Cam – her and Josh develop a mutual affection for each other. Pretty soon they are trying to find time to spend together, but the powers-that-be aren’t happy about that. And it seems that Grace is in a never ending battle with Cam’s evil side, as he is drifting that way more and more – with some dubious nudges from Josh of course. But when it comes down to it, can Josh and Grace really let each other go – even if they can never be? Does Cam have it in him to commit the ultimate act and take a human life?
First of all, I’d like to start by stating the cover for book was brilliant and very well done. It has extreme visual appeal and showed, on a small scale, the powers that would inevitably try to push Grace and Josh apart – for when light and dark mix, the dark wins out every time. I enjoyed the fact that the story alternated POV between the two main characters and showed things from each of their perspectives. I felt it made for a well rounded and interested story that kept me intrigued until the end. I think the story was slightly predictable, but still a very enjoyable read and I am very much looking forward to seeing what is up next for the two soul crossed lovers – Grace and Josh.
