This book is absolutely hilarious. I was dying of laughter in the middle of my office to the point where I actually had to take the ear buds out and explain to my bewildered coworkers why I was laughing so hard. At one point, I left the room altogether and listened to the scene outside where I wouldn't be a distraction to others. Very good book that brightened my boring Saturday.

I could not finish this book. The story started out so funny and entertaining that I immediately order the second book. I listened to 5 hours of the book and 80% of Nava’s conversation was sexual. Nava is a horny, mouthy, irresponsible young lady. Her powers manifested when she was giving a hand job to a demon. Granted she did not know that he was a demon, but it set the tone for the book. She whines because she was chosen over her brother and because she did not have the years of training like the others. She looks at all the men as a sexual object.
The demon club is an old Jewish organization created to fight demons, it is similar to the Templars. Young Jewish males are identified at birth to have the characteristics to become a hunter. They spend 20 or 21 years of training. On their 21st birthday they are tested for their magic ability.
I am not a prude. I don’t expect urban fantasy genre to be on par with fine literature. I do like a little romance and even a roll in the hay, swearing is okay too. I like strong kick ass women, with a little snark and she MUST be intelligent. Nava is missing the intelligence, and self-respect even a sexual liberated woman must have. I return the second book.

What other book might you compare The Unlikeable Demon Hunter to, and why?
Darynda Jones's Charley Davidson series
Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I enjoyed most of hers personalization.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The kiss at the end of the book. It was really special moment for the lead characters.
This could have been great but didn't quite do it for me. The story just wasn't as interesting as it sounded and Nava is rather annoying, crass and crude. The other supporting characters aren't all that likeable or endearing either. The narrator was also a let down. Her reading style is a strange mix of over dramatic and monotone. At times she sounds like she's reading a menu or shopping list.
