synopsis from goodreads

Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.

Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.

Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

And I warn you not to read this when you haven’t read Personal Demons
You can read my excited review 

But I promise that the review below is spoiler free.. 
I tried my best, so let’s move one…: 

I Loved loved LOVED Personal Demon’s, so when I saw that Lisa Desrochers will be at BEA I knew I needed to see her. And there she was signing Original Sin. I was thrilled, which is why this one is one of the first books I read from my BEA pile….

In Original Sin Frannie and Luc have to deal their new situation: Luc being mortal, Frannie is tagged for Heaven and tries to use her special gift “sway”. But, we also have a new important character here: a new/old *smiles* guardian angel that is here to protect Frannie. Because hell wouldn’t give it right? So we don’t have to wait long until hell is back in the game and wants Luc back and Frannie’s tag reversed ..

A new POV is introduced.. 

So instead of having two POV (Frannie’s and Luc’s) we also have a new one which was a bit confusing in the beginning. Especially since I was sure I’d love him, but I didn’t … so much. He always tried to do the best for Frannie but always went way above this and made things worse. In the end.. I understand, but while reading I was angry!

Prepare… this is a hot YA story.. Wooohoo
very sexy… veeerrrryyyyyy

I adore  kick ass Frannie and I lloove sexy Luc, those two characters are hot, sexy, strong and so very much in love! So much passion and deep love.

Original Sin is like Personal Demon’s hot in a YA kind of way.. Where normal YA novel stop with kissing, Original Sin goes further and teases you a lot with very steamy scenes. It’s awesome how Lisa manages to stay YA suitable but always expands the borders a little bit more. I love this.

Bottom Line
I had so many emotions while reading this book. Frustration, Anger, Fear, love and so much heartbreak. And yes tears were involved… There were many twists, turns and surprises that kept me reading it faster and faster!

I loved it and can’t wait for the next one. If you are looking for a YA book that explores the boundaries of YA, go for Personal Demons and start reading. Amazing!

And the release is just around the corner!! 

Much Love,

I'm reading this one right now Danny!!!! I'm not sure how I feel about Matt at the moment, he's bothering me a bit with his meddling. STAY OUT OF IT!!! I'm loving Luc though, and I'm liking Frannie a lot more in this one than I did in the first one:) Lili has me a bit worried though…off to read the second half!

Love you to pieces:)

Love you more…

And yes I had the same weird feeling about Matt. He wasn't at all like I expected him to be… Oh and Lili, YES she's an awesome character … *shuts mouth close*

Luc was wonderful! I did love the first book a tiny bit more though, but I can't wait for the next one. The ending leaves you hanging… again! lol!

I had some mixed feeling about Personal Demons. I ended up liking it but I felt a lot of anger and frustration through the book that has me thinking I MIGHT not read this one. So many books to read so no point in reading a book that just pisses you off. But we'll see once I read a few more reviews.

I know how you feel. Sometimes you end up liking a book but not enough to put it ahead so many other books you are interested in. Personal Demon's was one of those books that many either loved or hated. I absolutely adored it.

Maybe you wait until the third is out and then read them all again :)

I think it is a sign of a truly good story when it can pull so many emotions out of you.

I need to get to this series. It like that it seems to be packed with a lot of things to mind boggle over.

Fun review, Danny
