The Collector

The Collector by Victoria Scott

Hey everyone! So, I first learned about The Collector from another book blog I follow and the book, or at least the character Dante Walker, seemed really good. Anyhoo I ordered the book and I just finished it yesterday. I have got to say that it was very interesting because it was completely written in the guy's perspective which is something I have never read. So, here's a mini explanation about the book.

Book Description provided by Goodreads.comHe 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.

Overall: I really enjoyed reading this book although I have to say that Charlie sort of got on my nerves because she completely changes at one point during the book. I really wish they could have kept her as she was because you usually don't see a hot guy, such as Dante, fall for the nerdy girl, such as Charlie. I think the book could have been better if Charlie would have stayed as she was but Dante's awesomeness made up for that.

Ranking: For the ranking I would give it a 6.
