Publisher's Summary

Ari Katz is intelligent and driven and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin, Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari's induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn't expect is to take her brother's place among the until-now all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan's exactly what Nava's always wanted: the perfect bad-boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That's as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

Amazing

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.

Pass this one!

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.

good

nice to have a more organic attraction between the two she is a party girl who seems to be constantly in heat surround around a bunch of very attractive men and hooked up with the first aggressive man that came on to her after she found out he was great in bed she wanted more and more of it. He on the other hand seems like naval reminds him of someone and is a major control freak which excites her more. So reguardles how poorly he treats her she will still go back for her physical needs. At least it's not a vampire blood bond or a psychic mating bond that forces them to feel good and be together it's just pure lust

Thrilling

I believe I came across this book on an audio page in Facebook and was not disappointed. I really enjoyed the thrill and suspense of this story. The outspoken Nava was entertaining. The crazy things she does, shows her carefree age. The cast of characters is very interesting and the narrator did an excellent job with their personalities as well as their accents. Looking forward to the next book in this series. I know it will be as riveting as the first book.

A great breath of fresh air has just blown my mind

The premise is nothing new bad ass girl gets thrown into a male dominant world and has to struggle to keep up with the boys.
Oh, but how well it is written. As a true audiobook junkie I love to find these rare jewels and devour them. In a nut shell, young single Jewish girl gets herself placed into a group of Alpha males whose singular job is to kill demons. No girl has ever been where she finds herself, but fortunately she has enough attitude to get the chance to show she can play with the big boys. There is sex in this book but from my viewpoint as an older male who has had many a frank talks with enough women to know the sex shown from a woman's POV in this book is pretty right on the nose. The story moves along and keeps the reader involved. I finished this book in less then a day, which made for a long day. I'm buying the next one...

Finally demons from another point of view ...

It is rare to find books in fantasy/fiction that feature the Jewish religion as a background or as a significant part. In fact I could count them on one hand. So it was very refreshing to find this series. This being the first book there is much allowance for a bit of roughness around the edges.
However, while the narrator was good she didn’t learn how to actually pronounce many of the very common hebrew words, causing hiccups and misunderstandings in anyone who knows the language.
As for the story: It was interesting and had just the right amount of fright, but, ‘Unlikable’ basically describes everyone in the book. There are only 2 or 3 people I would want to see more of and they are not main characters. There are some good passages where the writing excelled, just to dop off again in the next sentence.
I was also not expecting the amount of erotica in the book. Instead of deepening the story in a first book, it was like big holes in a sidewalk one is jogging down hoping for a good run, then having to stop, get around the filler and start again. Oh! God! Another sex scene? Oy Jeezus. For books with series aspirations, sometimes minimizing the erotica works best so that some story...rhythm can be achieved. Then grow it with the following books.

Great listen

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.

Not great.

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.

Good but silly porn

Could have been really good story ok and narration excellent. However just to much silly sex throughout that spoilt the whole flow of the story maybe the next one will be more realistic.
