I tried to get into this book...I really did, but the plot just felt weak...

Destiny died in 1957 and has been serving in Hell ever since collecting souls. But her time is running out and she still has one soul left to meet her quota if she is ever going to become a a full fledged demon. So she has been sent back to earth and has one week to get a mortal to sign over their soul or else...To bad she has her sights set on one man in particular, Chance. Little does she know that Chance is part angel and his mission is to save her soul. What happens when they both start to need each other and lose sight of their goals?

All of that sounds great right? Well I made it a little over half way in the book before I finally admitted defeat. It's not that the book is horrible, it's just that the plot feels week and flimsy. No matter how hard I try I'm not able to feel the romance and the love that is supposed to be building here. Now don't get me wrong the sex scenes are SMOKING HOT, but the rest just falls flat, and even a little boring at times. I get what is supposed to be happening but yet I'm just not buying it. Maybe it needs to be fleshed out a bit more.

Overall I had high hopes for this book and unfortunately it just didn't cut it.
