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.{Goodreads}

*Fans self* Asdfghjkl...man is everything about this series HOTT!!? Not sure bout the kitty but...que cute! ;D

~Review:
  Asdfghjkl!!!!! Where do I even start!? Ok the hit hunk on the cover?? Ya. I think so. We got no face but hell with a body like that...I'm all good with what we are shown ;) Am I right or am I right? The cover is simple but I still love it. The color scheme is perfect and the little slogan "He makes good girls...bad". That my friends has every bit of reason to draw you into this book and if that's not enough just read the premise. When I saw this book (it didn't even have a cover yet!!) I knew I would do whatever it took to get this book!! I needed it like I need pizza. (Both are very delicious). So when I got a little email from Scott's publishers...yes....I did a little jig ;D And I scored bonus when I got the chance to interview the one and only Victoria Scott which you can find HERE!!

  Now enough with my fan girling about the cover and interview and blessing of receiving an ARC and on to fan girling about the book!! ;D Number one, Victoria Scott has a magical hand. Her writing is splendid! I just fell into the pages. The way she writes is hypnotic and not just because she decided to have the POV from Dante. In fact I give her so much props for writing Dante. He is such a unique character and obviously to have a unique character you need one awesomesauce author to create said character.

  Now to talk fully about these awesome characters. Dante. Oh my beloved Dante. Holy crap you guys...Dante. Haha he had me from page one. It's not too often you get a guys POV in YA now a days. So when you actually do it's a little piece of heaven. It's nice to read trough the other genders eyes. I don't know if it's just cause I'm a girl and girls are constantly trying to figure out what goes on in their heads but I find it extra special when we get a guys POV. Now just so you guys know...Dante isn't your typical bad boy type. He is truly a villain. You here so many people say that but it's true. Now don't let that fool you into thinking this boy has absolutely no soft side to him....cus he does. But it's only reserved for certain people. Anyways Dante is so hot and an absolute blast to read from. His personality is so like able no matter how bad he is.

  Now Charlie, Charlie was not what I was expecting at all. I was amazed by how in attractive Victoria made her (physically). I mean that was kinda the point of the book in some ways but I don't know I wasn't expecting that I guess. I felt so bad for her but at the same time I truly respected her. She was SO SO gorgeous in character/personality/morals/all-that-good-stuff. ;P No matter how many jabs she got she took ever blow with a smile an positive attitude. She was the sweetest and one of the best main girls I have ever read about. I loved her with a passion. And ten I loved her friends Abigail and Blue. They were the best. Oh and same as Dante's BFF.

  The collector was...how should I put it??...intoxicating. I was hooked from beginning to end. I didn't want it to end and when it did I had to just take a deep breath and exhale from the best freaking roller coaster I have ever read. The ending was freaking terrible and I can't believe how long I have to wait for book two. Victoria is a genius and I love her through and through!! So a quick shout-out to our genius...Thank you Victoria for having the wonderful skills you have and blessing us with Dante...ermm I mean The Collector. ;D This is a very hyped book. Everyone and their moms dog is talking about it. So my advice?? Follow all the hype, get the book, enjoy it and love it. You will thank me later (seriously if you read this book because of this review come back and tell me you loved it...ok even if your not buying it because of my demand come back and tell me just how much you loved it k? K.)

~Rating:
4.5 of 5 stars!!!!!!!1 :D <333333

Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a great day!! :D

  1. I'm reading this one right now and I didn't think I would like Dante in the beginning, but he's changing and I'm loving the new Dante. Charlie was a surprise for me, I never would have imagined her to be a heroine but I get it, she's so sweet and nice. Reminds me of Anna from Sweet Evil.
    Great review, Jaiden!

    1. Yay!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!! Yes, she kind of does remind me of Anna but I think Charlie has got it a little different especially with the natural good looks and likability of peers. But there innocence is very much the same!

      Thank you!! Glad you stopped by! :)
