The Collector - Victoria Scott
I went into this book with really high expectations of the lead character Dante. After seeing people saying “OMG, DANTE WALKER” and “I LOVE DANTE!”. So, I’m sad to say… I wasn’t head over heels for Dante. Did I like him? Absolutely. Honestly I loved Charlie, the female lead this time. [I don’t discriminate ;)] Victoria Scott also had amazing support characters with Annabelle and Blue.
Even though I wasn’t in love with Dante, I did like his snarky attitude and I thought his over exuberance of confidence was endearing. I wasn’t fond of how mean he could be though. I mean I get it… but being someone who’s been on the brunt side of a joke, I totally felt for Charlie and the others he put down. However, the way Dante evolved throughout the novel simple amazed me. It really brings light to the reassurance of how ONE person could blindly procure such a change in someone.
Charlie was adorkable. I totally related to her, since I haven’t been the prettiest, or the smartest and I’ve been told so, just like her. With everything that happened to Charlie, she was just an amazing soul. The complete opposite of a Mr. Egotistical sassy pants Dante. Annabelle and Blue, Charlie’s best friends were completely awesome sauce. Protective of their trio, they made the storyline so much more interesting. Anabelle and Blue gave Dante a run for his money when it came to being protective of Charlie.
I was absolutely in love with the witty banter in this book. Per usual, While I’m reading… I tend to be animated. Hilarity ensues something fierce in The Collector. Not only was Hilarious, but it also had drama, romance, and super feels (Yes, that means I shed a few tears). Victoria definitely delivered a well thought, well written story. Even though this novel doesn’t particularly have any cliff-hangers, I definitely anticipate the second novel. Victoria truly leaves you with the “can’t waits”. I mean I’m super curious to find out what happens next.
