Book Spotlight: The Collector (Dante Walker #1) by Victoria Scott
He makes good girls…bad.
Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.
Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:
Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.
Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried.
Dante Walker is a collector and he’s pretty amazing at his job. Well, he’s pretty amazing at everything and he’s not afraid to tell you. Dante has a special assignment and that assignment is Charlie. Never in a million years did Dante expect Charlie and now that he met her, he begins to rethink everything he stands for. That’s when the real fun begins.
Guys, this book, THIS BOOK, is amazing! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved it. I could not put it down. And Dante, oh Dante, he is just…..hold on, got to keep it PG. 🙂
Dante Walker is a fabulous character. Seriously, I loved reading his story and getting to know him through the pages. He’s the cocky, arrogant, hilarious, bad boy type who makes girls everywhere swoon. He grows so much throughout the book and I think that’s one of my favorite parts of the story. I mean, guys, he’s a bad boy right? The evil himself standing at your doorstep, trying to collect your soul. You don’t really get any worse than that. But after meeting Charlie, after getting to see another type of an individual that sees the best in people and wants to make the world a better place, Dante begins to realize there is more to life than his job.
Now, Charlie. She is one different type of a heroine. I seriously had no idea what to expect from her, considering all of the promotion and such was on Dante. Yet, I’ve come to love her to pieces, just like Dante. She is a sweetheart, a golden child, and she teaches Dante how to be a better person but simply being. That’s true love ladies and gentlemen. When you look past the outer and see right to the inner.
I loved everything about this book. The characters, the setting, the little one liners. Victoria created characters that grab on to your heart stings and don’t let go. The only bad thing about this book is that it ended and I have to wait for the next one. The Collector is going to take you by storm. Seriously, read this book.
The Collector is out now! Get it, read it, love it!
