Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser(s) comes from the following book(s):

Title: The Collector

Series: Dante Walker, book #1

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 teaser:

"Good for my brain? The collector part of me snatches up her cup and pumps more frothy yellow liquid. But the other part of me, the human part, feels a twinge deep in my gut. She's getting drunk because of me. This fact is 95 percent pleasing, and 5 percent...something else. I can't think about the something-else part. Especially since Charlie is half walking, half staggering toward a guy who's sure to blow her off."
-- p. 82

I love that I'm not supposed to like Dante, and yet I do.  Either that, or the part of me that likes bad boys likes him despite knowing that that's why I'm supposed to like him.  Something like that.  But there's always that inkling that he can be better, that he can do better.  I sure hope he proves me right.  =)  I think this assignment is a test for him...and I'm kinda hoping he fails.

What are you teasing this week?  Share it in the comments or leave a link so I can visit!
