Bad boy, meet bad girl.

Dante has a shiny new cuff wrapped around his ankle, and he doesn't like that mess one bit. His new accessory comes straight from Big Guy himself and marks the former demon as a liberator. Despite his gritty past and bad boy ways, Dante Walker has been granted a second chance.

When Dante is given his first mission as a liberator to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen, he knows he’s got this. But Aspen reminds him of the rebellious life he used to live and is making it difficult to resist sinful temptations. Though Dante is committed to living clean for his girlfriend Charlie, this dude’s been a playboy for far too long…and old demons die hard.

With Charlie becoming the girl she was never able to be pre-makeover and Aspen showing him how delicious it feels to embrace his inner beast, Dante will have to go somewhere he never thought he’d return to in order to accomplish the impossible: save the girl he’s been assigned to, and keep the girl he loves.

 

My Thoughts:

Dante… oh, sweet Dante. I fell in love with Dante in The Collector. He was so crass and sarcastic, along with egotistical and self-absorbed. What’s not to love, right?! In The Collector when you first meet Dante, it takes a bit to really enjoy his personality and extremely unique language. But since I was already a Dante fan, I had absolutely no trouble re-falling for him this time around. Though I do have to say he’s completely, and I mean COMPLETELY different. His feelings for Charlie have turned him into a bit of sappy love-sick puppy. But no worries… I guarantee you’ll still love him the same. :)

Dante is put on a mission… to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen. At first glance Dante is able to see that Aspen reminds him too much of himself… his old self. While facing temptations, he must remain focused on doing what’s right. And no worries… there’s no love triangle here, as hinted at by the synopsis. In the process of attempting to save Aspen’s soul, he’s also fighting to retain the love of Charlie. A struggle he faces within, as well as physically. I felt as though this book, as compared to The Collector, had a lot more action, hate and aggression, making for a much more heated story line.

I enjoyed the new and improved Dante in this novel. He encountered many new feelings, including jealousy, doubt and worry. He doubted Charlie’s love for him more than once. He was wavered on his ability to be a successful Liberator. He worried… and worried… and worried about not successfully doing what he was sent to do. Not at all his normal cocky self. But I really enjoyed this sweeter, more normal side to Dante Walker.

Scott’s writing style is striking. The characters are unique and enjoyable. The different scenes and graphic scenarios she creates are so creative. We meet a new cast of characters in this book that weren’t in the first, and become reacquainted with a few familiar ones. The Heaven v. Hell aspect of this story was so powerful. This is such a strong series, I’m eager to see where Victoria Scott will take it next.
