Character Interview with Dante Walker and INT Giveaway of The Collector by Victoria Scott!

The Collector (Dante Walker, #1)Hey everyone! I'm so excited to introduce this next book. I actually won it on another blog's giveaway, and boy, am I glad I did! It totally took me by surprise... in a good way! Plus, Victoria Scott is one of the sweetest authors you'll ever meet. Just the icing on my Dante Walker cake. :-)

Goodreads Book Description: 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 Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

*fans face* Whoo! It's HOT up in here. Thanks so much, Dante, for swinging by my humble blog, Ensconced in YA. I know you had to take some time off of your busy job to do so, and we appreciate it. 

1. Can you tell us a little about your occupation? I place seals on people's soul who do naughty things. You don't see me watching, but all that matters is that I see you. 

2. What's your best memory from life? The few times I spent with my father, I guess. I don't know. I don't really like to talk about that kind of stuff. It's whatever. 

3. Alcoholic beverage of choice? Come on, you're dead, you can tell us :-) I'm going with Jack Daniels, because it's straight up hard, like me. 

4. What's your most embarrassing moment-- either from life or death?
I don't get embarrassed, doll. Everything I do is done with intention. 

5. Describe your ideal girl. *fans face again*
Any girl that knows how to rock her shit. I dig a girl that likes her own body, regardless of whether it's a stick figure or a brick house.

Pass. None.

The Godfather. That dude got mad respect.

Anything that's heavy, loud, and angry.
