My Thoughts:

This book was such a great read! I finished it in a matter of hours. It was very interetaining, and there was no moment when I was bored or didn't want to continue reading.

Soul Crossed starts moments after the death of both Josh and Grace. One wakes up in hell and the other in heaven, but they are both asigned to the same soul. One that is standing on the brink and one push could bring destruction to the world. While Josh is trying to corrupt Cam and Grace trying to save them both, they get tangled in a web of lies, deceit and betrayal, and only love can save them.

I was so very intrigued when I opened the book and it started the way it did. I loved the fact that we were thrust right into the action and as the battle for Cam started. There wasn't one second where things weren't happening and I loved the fast pacing of the book. I finished it in a few hours because I couldn't stop reading. Soul Crossed is one of those books where you say, one more chapter, then I'll stop. Yeah, no. There was no stopping for me, not when the plot was very well thought and made me suspicious of everyone and everything and had mr wondering what could happen next and who would make the next move. I've read a lot of books about angels and demons, and while the main idea of this book wasn't exactly new and not something I haven't read before, it had enough twists and turns to make it one of the most enjoyable reads of this year.

I really liked Grace and Josh and felt for them. Grace is nice, so very nice it bordered on naive. Some of her actions made me groan and cover my face because she was too trusting and it got her into a lot of trouble. Josh on the other, is not innocent. I mean, the guy went to hell, but it all really went back to his dad and the lack of love and acceptance in his life. I really loved him, and even though he did some terrible things in the book, he was still my favorite character. It could be my total love and obsession for bad guys in books, but I felt for him more than any other character and understood him. He wanted love so much, that he did some pretty stupid and naive things for it.Then there is Cam who freaked me out so much I had goosebumps everytime he was mentioned. Even now, I shudder when I think of him.

Fast paced and action-packed, Soul Crossed is an amazing read that will have you at the edge of your seat.
