The Collector (Dante Walker, #1)

Some people may think the way Dante Walker speaks is over-the-top, but I absolutely love it. From the very start of the book, I was quoting his lines to my husband while I was reading. Here are my awesome Dante teasers:
"There's a security guard, like, ten feet away. I could have you kicked out of here."
"For what? Being awesome?"

I glance in the mirror. Surprise, surprise - I look finger-lickin' delicious.

Goodreads Summary:
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.


  1. Haha. Yeah, I guess Dante is a little over the top (I haven't read it yet, but will in the next few weeks!), but I don't mind. There aren't many characters like him out there. =) My TT
