Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

Have you ever had that dream about that one guy that you have a huge crush on. He is a bad ass that is really good looking and that you just have to have even though you know he is a bad influence and will get you in trouble.

Well meet Dante Walker. He is a bad ass good looking man and he steals souls. How hot does that make him. Really hot. What Dante does is he sees people and if they have a certain aura or if they have any souls he will either give them a bad seal or a good seal. Even if somebody ticks him off he will give them a bad seal just to be an ass. Well his boss wants him to follow this girl Charlie around and wants him to steal her soul in ten days. Well he shows up to her house where he thinks she lives with her grandmother but finds out that is just her guardian because her mother died in a house fire. Well throughout the whole process of finding out about Charlie he thinks twice about why his boss wants him to steal Charlie's soul. Charlie is a girl that likes to volunteer to help neighbors around the area fix up their houses or landscape their lawns. She is doing it because she knows a lot of people that need help with things and don't have the money for it so she starts a program for other people to help. Well if I forgot to tell you Charlie isn't very pretty. She has a limp which she got from trying to escape the fire that was in her house. Her hair is really long and straight and looks like it hasn't been cut in a very long time. Plus her teeth are really crooked and she has acne all over her face and if you blew on her she would fall over because she is so thin. Dante keeps hearing girls that go to school with her saying to him why are you hanging out with her. Just look at her. But he doesn't listen because he has a job to finish because he wants to steal her soul in ten days. But after a while when hanging out with Charlie he notices pink little seals that replaced his seals on certain people. He keeps wondering if Charlie knows about him and she is another soul stealer. But Dante doesn't like hanging out with Charlie in the beginning and he is only doing this to get out of hell and to be able to do other things in his life. Well Dante starts to get feelings for Charlie and he doesn't know how to handle them because Charlie is the type of girl that you don't fall in love with because she isn't really pretty and no guy want her. But Dante starts to like her a lot and maybe even falls in love with her. That's how I always felt about myself when my husband came around. I didn't know why he would fall in love with me.

I really loved this book. It keeps you on your toes and it keeps you wondering if soul stealers really exist in life. Sometimes I wish I could put seals on people that did bad things in their life. Or if they treated me like crap I would seal their hiney and hope their soul is stolen. Where can I buy that kind of app for me to do. I have never read anything by this author and I would definitely read another book by her. I loved it.

  1. So many people are raving about Dante that I can't wait to read this book. I always love those bad boys that we aren't suppose to fall for but end up falling all the same.

    Thanks for the great review, glad you really enjoyed this one!
