Review Soul Crossed by Lisa Gail Green

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.

My Review & Thoughts
Cover: Awesome cover! Light and dark side of the leading duo, very eye catching!
Genre(s): Paranormal Romance, Young Adult, Teens (16+)
Romance: Adorable with reference and acting out of Romeo & Juliet (high school)

Soul Crossed was a quick, fast paced read with a touch of forbidden love. 

Grace is sent to heaven and Josh is sent to hell after an accident. They are sent on the same mission to retrieve a soul that can cause Armageddon. By doing so, they earn their spots in their location by winning that soul. If not, well then they both suffer one in eternal doom and the other never to see her family. What the angel and demon didn't count on was blue sparks of attraction. Someone is lying and deceiving the truth in this mission from one side, is it the dark or light side?

There's a lot of reference to the religious information but I think it is used to build the story. The characters were simple and to the point of the plot. 

Josh's character does a complete turn from the superficial jerk to loving and redeeming 'demon'. His character was interesting and kept the book in it's fast pace.
"I need you. I'm only real when you're with me." 

I wish the villains were more dark and played a bigger role into the book. Cam did will as his part in villain but the other, I expected much more. Since this book was pretty quick, it could almost fall under instant love with Josh and Grace. I didn't mind it since it was to the point and the story was not dragged out. The narrating goes back in forth between Josh and Grace which I like in books. I love to read the male point of view in the situation and in this Josh does not disappoint. 

Recommended Read
Can be read as a standalone but there's notes to a book two
