Blurb (From Goodreads):
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.
"Who knew evil could be so dreamy? Josh is a devilishly good-looking demon who leads the reader right into lust and temptation. Although Josh is the demon, it is Camden, the Anti-Christ, who will really have readers shivering from his devilish, sinister ways. The Mortal Instruments meets Romeo and Juliet in this title that's jampacked with love, chaos and heartbreak. Readers will have a hard time putting Soul Crossed down." - Romantic Times
"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.

“Inside this boy,” Ms. A. says, “is the ability to destroy everything you know on Earth. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can save him, Grace. You can save the world.”
This was a YA paranormal romance with angels and demons!
I liked both Grace and Josh in this story, although Josh did seem a little misguided at points. It seemed a bit unfair that he had ended up in the position he was in, and he didn’t seem as evil as you would have expected from someone in his place.
“The point is that you must claim his soul for me. I’ll worry about the rest.”
The storyline in this was good, and there were some twists that I didn’t see coming, which really surprised me! I really wasn’t expecting the twists to be so good!
“There is no undoing what happened. Choices were made. People were hurt. All we can do now is make the best of the situation.”
The romance was good, and I thought that Josh and Grace were really cute together, even if things were complicated a bit by Cam.
“Electricity zaps through my palms and up my arms, sending a thrill through my entire body. Now that we’ve connected, I can’t let go.”
The ending to this was good, and it will be interesting to see what happens in book 2!
