Book Review: The Collector by Victoria Scott

The Collector by Victoria Scott

Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I move me a good Angel vs. Demon situation and that’s pretty much what’s going on in this book.

So, The Collector is all about super mega hottie Dante Walker, a rich kid who died in a car accident and now works for Boss Man (aka Lucifer.) as a Soul Collector, which means he gets people to sin, which earns their soul seals and when you have so many you get collected by Hell and yeah. Fun stuff. Jk. Dante likes this job and he is the best at it!

Dante’s latest assignment from Boss Man is to collect Charlie Cooper’s soul in ten days and if he does so he will get a promotion that earns him a permanent ticket out of Hell. But Charlie is nothing like he expects. She is ugly, with frizzy hair, bad teeth, acne, walks with a limp and has glasses. Charlie is exactly what every guy would ignore for the hotter girls but in the ten days that Dante has to collect her soul he starts to see that it’s what is inside of her that got him this assignment. Charlie has the potential to change the world for the better and Boss Man doesn’t want that to happen. Dante struggles between saving this innocent girl and getting his promotion that will allow him to live normally again.

AHHHH!!!!!! This book was the last book ill read in 2015. Sadface. But it was SO. GOOD. I remember reading about this book early this year around February and thinking “Ooo! I want to read this. It sounds so good!” and I was right. There was so much humor and sass! Like I said at the beginning of this post, I LOVE stories about angels and demons. And if you do then this book is for you!!!

Recommended age:
16+ due to so much foul language.

On to the ratings!

0 = None 10 = Tons

The feels didn't kick in until the latter half of the book. Dante remembering his family before he died and all. Pretty emotional! And well there’s Charlie and Dante that you can’t help but ship. Do they have a shipname? They need one. Chante? Oh and when that one person died near the end and even though I didn't like them I still felt bad.

There were a few punches, a shot or two fired, but nothing really bad. We’ve all seen worse.

Sexual content:
Lots of kissing and sexual references. Two characters make out on the hood of a car. Lol!

Crude language:
This book was good, don’t get me wrong BUT it was littered with trashy, not-so-classy language that was pretty unnecessary. Every curse word was used multiple times, other than GD. And just my personal opinion but I HIGHLY doubt the ones working for Big Guy (God) would be cursing like the rest of the world.
8/10 (maybe 9)

Other elements/comments:
Underage drinking and so forth.

Overall I enjoyed it. I thought Charlie was adorable and Dante was hilarious. I'm a sucker for wit and sass!
