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.

My Take:

Being at the top doesn't mean anything if you follow the rules, for Dante Walker rules are simple, collect the soul in the alluded time. Being Boss man's second means he's trained all collectors just like him, of course it's hard getting their loyalty. Any collector would want the promotion Boss man chose Dante to bring the soul within 10 days. Collectors do just that they collect the soul they are charged with and bring it back with any means necessary. Of course being not dead themselves, the cuffs they all have allow them the turn invisible as well as put a invisible light to show others that the person has acted badly.

The soul in questioned is a girl named Charlie and she is the type not to get into trouble so easily. Being the charming devil that he is Dante will do whatever it takes to take Charlie's soul. Even though the town she lives in is small and Dante sticks out like a sour thumb, getting closer to Charlie isn't hard when you know how to play the field. Even going to far as to trick her into the soul contract, Dante will do anything and everything, even stand in the way of others like him. Because once your inside this type of darkness its hard to step back. Even when stepping back means keeping Charlie safe, even from himself. 

How can you now fall in love the a charmer like Dante when he says lines like"" and "". He is able to make you feel special, and I love his swagger. Plus he loves the color red which is HOT and he. May not show it but he has a heart and shines through. I wish I can change someone's ways like charlie can because she speaks for those around her not ready to speak and she allows you step in and view the world differently. How can you not want a book that has swagger, a hot swoony worthy guy who takes what he means seriously, and a girl with a kind heart that can help shape others.

5/5 stars Dante has the swagger that begs for more.
