Review: The Collector by Victoria Scott

13449677Title: The Collector
Author: Victoria Scott
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pages: 352
Release Date: April 2nd 2013
Series: Dante Walker #1
Where I Got It: Library

Synopsis: 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.

I read this book on September 14th 2013.

The Collector is a new take on Heaven and hell.
My sister and I both wanted to read this book, and so when she got it from the library I was like:

Then, I finally got it from the library and was like:

She got to start it before me and I wanted to read it before her so once I got the book, we were like this:

We were both trying to finish the book first and I got further than her, so she was like this:

Then, when we finished the book, we thought it wasn't the best. So I wasn't very happy with it. Like, the book was good and all but the ending was too predictable. So when people ask me what I think about it, I'm like: (me as Dean, my sister as Sam)

Continuing to the review: So, when I first read that this books was like Obsidian, I had to read it. So I borrowed it from the library and enjoyed it mostly. I just didn't understand why, in some of the book, he wasn't completely honest once he had the opportunity. I would have told the poor girl the truth. Also, I don't understand why in the beginning, everyone was perfectly fine with him just strolling in their house.Either way, I thought Charlie and Dante were great for each other especially Charlie for Dante.Dante Walker... I didn't fall in love head over heels. No, he was a jerk in the first half of the book. "Look at me, I'm to good for all you suckers. I'm from hell and I'm proud!" It disgusted me.But either way, in the end I enjoyed his story but the ending was just... what? I didn't like that ending because, like I said before, it was way to predictable.I recommend this book to readers who enjoyed Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and sci-fi/paranormal romance.
