Rule breaker, magic wielder, hot mess: meet our best chance at survival.

Can a foul-mouthed, romance-impaired heroine with no edit button face her worst nightmare … a purpose?

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts her twin’s induction ceremony into the Brotherhood of David, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn't expect is to take her brother's place among the previously all-male demon hunters. 

How does a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess even fight demons? Especially demons who are doubly motivated; bonus points for killing the first female hunter.

Now she’s on a mission to test her mettle, but her Brotherhood-appointed babysitter is distractingly hot. When you combine charisma and hard abs, how’s a girl to focus and what will it cost her in the end?

Odds of survival: meh. 

Odds of hooking up with a smoking hot rock star before she bites it: much better.

Get it now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 "no whipped cream? / I prefer my shots not remind me of STIs" stars I'll be honest. I wanted to read this solely because of the tagline "Buffy Meets Bridesmaids". As one does. And surprise! THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER was, well, neither. And instead it was a total surprise. A delight. Fun, fresh, funny, and freaking hot. Not only was this a great read but this is only the beginning -- and from a debut author no less! It's true, Nava is not your typical heroine. She's not even the typical anti-hero/anti-chosen one in the sense of that recent "she was supposed to be the chosen one but isn't" trope that's been floating around. Nava was literally never supposed to be chosen. She wasn't even in the running. The failure to her twin brother's perfection, twenty year old Nava is in a bit of a downward-y spiral, or maybe just funk, after her tap dancing (I know right!) dreams were smashed to pieces. She decides to spend time, instead, having fun. Which for her means drinking, partying, screwing around, and not being responsible. Naturally a whole lot of responsibility falls into her lap. Wilde's writing was quippy without feeling like you'd fallen into a Joss Whedon tribute (not that I would be adverse to such a thing) and with enough fun references that everything felt really based in reality.. despite the Jewish Brotherhood of demon hunters and, y'know, the demons. I loved that this was set in Vancouver, Canada, and that we had this great and uniquely diverse mythology and background (did I mention the jews!). There was also a ton of mancandy, broody boys, grossly unique demons and their spawn, and fun dynamic quirks that haven't been fully revealed -- this is a series, after all -- and I'm so excited to learn more. I really liked Nava. Yes, she's supposed to be unlikeable but she honestly isn't. She's just a twenty-something going through the motions and making no bones about what she wants and what she likes. But she's smart and insightful and she cares. Her relationship with her twin, Avi, was also great because it wasn't perfect. Having lost his expected destiny he tries to be supportive but finds it difficult. There is the obvious jealousy and resentment and yet their sibling love was very present. And don't even get me started on Rohan (more diversity, hello hunky hindu-jew rockstar!) because he is delicious. The friendships, the hijinks, the mythology, the sex, the stumbles and the successes, make for a delightful adventure that I think a lot of fans of paranormal romance will really enjoy. But it's also accessible enough that if you're not a fan of PNR, or aren't familiar with the genre, you'll still be pulled in by the family dynamics and the comedic moments. Or even just the sexytimes. Can't wait for book two!

And that's okay with me." - Heroes and Heartbreakers"...a fun, funny, and unapologetically raunchy new urban fantasy series... a clever guilty pleasure at its best." - Fine Print“The action sequences are terrific and the humour will have you smiling.
