Publisher's Summary

Welcome to West Hollywood. The Creative City. Liberal and welcoming. Free from discrimination and hatred. A safe place to live if you’re gay.
But West Hollywood isn't safe anymore....
Someone in town has a macabre passion for beautiful young men. Healthy, gym-toned male bodies keep turning up, tortured, drained of blood, missing parts, and quite, quite dead. Someone is using the Creative City as a canvas of gruesome, sadistic creativity. Someone is using West Hollywood as a warped psychotic playground. Someone... or something.
WeHo city coroner Becky O’Brien is helpless to stop the accumulation of gym-toned corpses. At the end of her investigative rope, Becky calls upon the aid of an old college friend, Christopher Driscoll, who is an expert on serial killers. Rushing to her aid, Chris arrives in WeHo with his quirky boyfriend Troy in tow. Prowling the dark alleys and cruisy bars of WeHo in search of the psychotic fiend, the trio soon realizes that something possibly not human has taken up residence in Boys' Town - something with an insatiable hunger for the flesh and blood of hot young men.
Following the trail of mangled corpses, Becky has another realization - nothing is what it seems. Even her old friend Chris has secrets... dark secrets.
Accompanied by the compulsively orderly sheriff's captain, Clive Anderson, and West Hollywood’s irritable and outrageous octogenarian city manager, Pamela Burman, Becky soon discovers the ominous truth behind the creature stalking West Hollywood’s pristine streets.
Sexy, scary, and very, very funny, Bite Club is a macabre black comedy that'll have you screaming bloody murder.

funny

I don't always consider a book being cheesy as a bad thing. There have been plenty of cheesy stories I've really enjoyed laughing along with. Bite Club is unabashedly cheesy, purposefully camped up and totally over the top, and I mostly enjoyed that about it. I liked the fat, Jewish heroine. I liked that the rest of the cast was diverse. Mechanically the writing is fine and the narration by Kitty, that I listened to, is well done.

However, there is a thin line between having characters play up to and with their stereotypes and writing a stereotype. On several occasions I felt Bodner crossed the line into making fun, whether purposeful or not. I cringed more than once.

But my biggest problem with this book, and if I'm honest it barely made 3 stars because of this, is that Bodner frequently goes off on long, descriptive histories of characters that divert the plot. If a character is being introduced for the sole purpose of dying immediately, I don't need 15 pages of their life story. I certainly don't need that for a dozen or so victims that play no active part in the book, plus all the actual characters. It broke the story up into small chunks between long sections of unneeded exposition, making it feel very jagged.

All in all, I'll call this an all right read, not bad but not too good either.

Note: I received a free copy of this book. But it was my choice to read and review it.

Thrilling, funny and entertaining...

If you like vampire stories, this one is a must. It is both thrilling because of the corpses, sometimes funny because of the dialogues of its characters and altogether entertaining. Kitty Hendrix puts you right into the story in no time and keeps you in it from beginning to end.

Highly recommended and a perfect audiobook for the holidays.

Very entertaining and funny book

Welcome to Hollywood,
The west of Hollywood young beautiful men are getting murder, by someone who is warped and twisted, Becky O'Obrien is the Coroner for this district, it's driving her up the wall. So she calls her friend Christopher Driscoll, an expert on serial killers. He comes to WEHo with his boyfriend Troy(who I loved) I could tell you more but then there will be spoilers,
This book has made think about it more once finished, it is that good,Fantastic listening
Each character quirks and all especially Troy, have been wonderfully written. The story so much details in it. Even the background story as well.
I've laugh, been telling my iPad what the characters should do. Like I've said very entertaining.
Kitty Hendrix was very enjoyable to listen to. Fantastic for this story, worked very well at all the characters.
Highly recommend
