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 s

Bad boy, meet bad girl.

Me: don't freaking try it, Dante. I'm going to kill you if something like what I'm thinking happens.
Kill you, Dante.
Kill you.

Gotta' give D-Dub 5-stars. Even though he's probably even less well-behaved in this book. He does his best, though. Kind of. For a demon. *sighs* ...more

Well, I’d done enough running. These dudes are human.
And I’m immortal.
Born Dante Walker, reborn a demon—
Today a liberator who’s about to put these guys down.


The thing with expectations… is that too much is a killer.

That and my pathological love of The Collector may have killed some of my enjoyment of this book. I tried to come in to this with zero expectations, but its kind of hard with a hero as unique as Dante Walker. Especially with that

The Liberator is book two in the Dante Walker series by Victoria Scott. I have decided that anything Victoria Scott writes is going to be fabulous. As is this book.

The Liberator starts right up where The Collector left off. Dante Walker believes he is bad, that he is not worthy of redemption. But of one thing he is sure of and that is his love for his Charlie. He is wearing a new cuff now, one given to him from The Big Guy upstairs. He is now a Liberator. But he has been given his first assignm

Update #2
As Jana pointed out in the comments section below, Victoria Scott has confirmed that there will NOT be a love triangle!
Breathe, people! :D

Update #1
I may be mistaken, but the blurb hints heavily on a possible love triangle.



Don't you dare do that Dante. Don't you fucking do that.

There is just one redeeming quality about you and that is Charlie.
Just that one. Don't fuck it up.

And that, seriously, was the last straw. As if the series could

Wowee, you guys. If possible, Dante was even hotter and badder and funnier and wittier in THE LIBERATOR! I love him and Charlie together. <3 Get ready for a wild ride with this one!

Oh, Dante!Is that getting old yet?

I cannot deny my Dante love. Just can’t do it.

With that said, I’m confused about how I feel about this book. Was I completely blown away? Well… no. Was I disappointed? Hmm… not exactly. I still liked it, I still love Dante, it still made me laugh, but it just felt different than The Collector.
Today, they say I’m born again. That I have a second chance as a liberator. But let me tell you something…I’m no angel. Never have been, never will be. I’m just bad
Pussywhipped, thy name is Dante.

I was obsessed with Dante in The Collector. His character was so refreshing and the way he owned his douchey-ness completely won me over. In The Liberator, he still had it. At least in the beginning. But the more I read, the more the Dante I loved was drowned out by Dante in love.

You know that saying that guys think about sex every 7 seconds. That is how often Dante thought of Charlie. Not doing it with Charlie, just Charlie. Somehow he managed to relate everyth

HAHA.. I find my gif ironic... The book's about angels and demons and saviours... It really did test my patience as well... OHHH BOY...
Seriously. The first book was great. It was interesting. I loved Dante. I loved Charlie. Now... I'm not too sure.
Charlie definitely changed. She wasn't as innocent nor was she that mature. She's all innocent, but she sure knows how to act a bit slutty. I seriously rolled my eyes way too many times. I seriously have a headache right now from all the weird facial e

Dante is on the good side but he really doesn't know how to be an angel/liberator. He still feels like a demon and enjoys partying like one too. He is given a mission to liberate Aspen and he must or someone else can take his job. It is too easy for him to fall into his old ways with Aspen. She is very similar to him in many ways. How can he liberate someone exactly like him? Especially since he doesn't feel like he deserves it. Dante must face his demons and hell itself.

Aspen was a great new ad

5 stars - Snarky and sexy, I totally love Dante Walker!

How do I describe this book? This book is so Dante Walker. I totally and completely LOVE that it's from his point of view. He is a badass demon turned liberator, sorta. See, Dante may be a liberator working for the big guy but he's not convinced he's anything more than a demon at heart. He loves his girl and he wants to protect her and fight for her but he doesn't feel worthy of her. He has work to do to understand who he is. Enter his assig

Actual rating: 3.5

I cannot get enough of Dante! He is one of the best anti-heroes I have read about in a long time and has some of the best lines. I can’t even begin to count how many times I laughed while reading The Liberator. What I loved most was the character development of Dante. He’s a lot more serious this time around, and if you’ve read The Collector, you’ll know that’s pretty big for him. He starts to question his and Charlie’s relationship more because they fell so hard and fast for o

#Update After Reading the Collector: I'm not even sure I want to read this one :/ Charlie's dumb. Maybe I'll stick up for Dante and this new Bad Girl.

How can I be so excited for the sequel when I haven't even read the first book yet?!!

Loved almost every part of this book until the ending. That ending made The Liberator pointless.

This was a 4.5 star book...until the end came and ruined it, so the good section will reflect those 4.5 stars this book could have gotten.

The Liberator was so much better than The Collector. It's rare for me to love a sequel more than the original but Scott did it somehow. There was more of a plot and structure (though that sti

POW! Dante is flippin' back ya'll! Woooo! I missed him so. I don't really even know where to start! It's always difficult to write reviews for sequels because we definitely don't want any spoilers. Ok! Let's just do this. Dante would kick my butt for beating around the bush.

The Liberator picks up where The Collector leaves off: Dante is sporting a shiny new cuff around his ankle- of the good variety. No longer is he working for the Boss Man, but he's now on Team Big Guy. This should be a great t

I'm no angel. Never have been, never will be. I'm just bad, baby. Maybe because of the way I was raised, or maybe it's good old-fashioned genetics.
Or maybe it's because deep down, I like the way being bad feels. Pow!

Victoria Scott has definitely achieved it. She has achieved what I suspect all authors strive for when writing a sequel. And that is that it will be better than the previous book. Well, The Liberator is way beyond better. It is amazing in it's epicness. Every single page was just

The Liberator took off right where The Collector ended. I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book in the Dante Walker series, but this sequel right here was an improvement to the first book, because the characters were more profound and the haze surrounding the world-building started to lift off.

For those of you who have read The Collector, you should know by now, how cocky and arrogant Dante was. Some readers, including me, were uncomfortable with hi

The Collector was probably one of the best books I read this summer. And one of the things I love the most about Entangled (its publishing company) is that they get sequels out fast.

I have to say, my feelings about The Liberator are sort of mixed. On one hand, Dante was entertaining as ever and I thought he developed as a character in this installment.

I have to say I really enjoyed him "slumming" it at the Holiday Inn. That was sort of hilarious. And he's right, Hol
Victoria Scott has a natural aptitude for creating staggering stories and characters. I fell in love with Dangerous Dante in The Collector, but after reading The Liberator…well, let’s just say that I am even more amazed, and will be first in line when The Warrior becomes available. The Liberator stands strong as The Collectors sequel. With added depth to these characters and mounting twists, I couldn’t put this one down.

Dante has a penchant to drive the reader crazy (in a good way, and who cou

Dante believes it’s his duty to protect Charlie. So, when he’s being assigned to save the soul of another girl miles away, he is not happy with the arrangement. What he doesn’t expect is how much his assignment reminds him of his old self. When the minions of his ex-Boss recruit humans to spy, trick and put people in harm’s way, Dante becomes furious. Can he come up with a way to save everybody before it’s too late?

I like Dante. While he pretends he doesn’t care much about anyone other than Char

I LOVE DANTE!!!!! Okay so he was totally badass, and just amazing and perfect and ovary exploding good in the first book but.. GUESS WHAT GUYS?!?!?!!?!? He is so much better in this book. I don't think I could have loved him more but I did. In this book he decides to become a better man for Charlie. Now don't worry he doesn't turn into a total softie, the Dante we love is still there. He just becomes more considerate and a better person( well mostly.)
