Publisher's Summary

When Jesse's old girlfriend calls him requesting an immediate meeting late at night, he thinks of a lot of reasons she might have called. None of them are anywhere near the truth. Instead of a late night booty call, Gail brings him into a world he didn't know existed - ghouls, werewolves, and ghosts - and they all seem to be after Jesse's blood. Gail wants Jesse to put a silver bullet in her heart to keep her from becoming the monster she hunts, but there's no way Jesse is going to kill the girl he once loved. He convinces her to let him restrain her for the full moon. Luckily, a local Adult Intimacies store has all the bondage gear he needs.

Now he just has to fight off a pack of werewolves single-handedly while keeping her from ripping his own throat out.

Sex, guns, and werewolves, what could go wrong?

    Story
    "Monster Hunting for Beginners"

    I had recently read and enjoyed "Wanderers: Ragnarök" by the same author so was interested to see if I was more a fan of that series or of the author and while I enjoyed that other book more than this one, I think overall I can say that I am a fan of the author as this was another strong novel from him.

    The focus of this book very much fits with the title, the male lead named Jesse is introduced to and taught about the supernatural world along with the role of hunters within that world by his ex-girlfriend Gail.

    Besides the werewolves and the rules concerning them in this world that make up most of the book, we also encounter some other entities such as ghouls and spirits and presumably the author will continue to expand on these and other baddies in subsequent books.

    The author strikes a good balance between giving us enough back story for the main characters while avoiding bogging this book with too many details that can be filled in later, for now we have learned that Gail comes from a family of monster hunters and that Jesse served in the military.

    I did have a slight issue with this book in that a few too many coincidental or overly convenient things seem to fall into place e.g. meeting up with some other hunters and one of them had a prior connection to Jesse, but this didn't hurt my overall opinion of the book too much.

    The performance of the narrator was fairly good, not the most exciting of performances, but it was read with a clear and pleasant tone that made the book an easy listen.

    Overall, an enjoyable bit of werewolf-focused urban fantasy with likable lead characters.

    "Fun and Sexy Listen"
    Any additional comments?

    When Jesse's old girlfriend Gail calls him out of the blue, a late night hunt for ghouls and werewolves is the last thing that he's expecting. Once he's over the fact that these things do in fact exist, Jesse is enlisted to be her partner. And then there's the teensy little problem of Gail's werewolf bite. Can he defeat the creatures that seem to be coming out of the woodwork to kill Gail? Can he also prevent Gail from becoming one of them? Listen and find out!

    Monster Hunting 101 was a fun listen. I liked that Gail was a very badass heroine. Jesse's solution for keeping Gail from turning into a werewolf was very, um, creative. With lots of action, sexy moments and some humor, I found the story very entertaining. Regarding the narration, I've noticed some negative reviews of this aspect. To be honest, early in the audiobook I kind of agreed that Ryan Jeanmaire might not be the right narrator for this story. However, after a few chapters, darned if he didn't grow on me! I have found this to be the case for other narrators as well. I think that listeners sometimes have preconceived notions of how a character should sound and simply don't like narrators that stray from that preconception. I enjoyed Monster Hunting 101: The Hunters, Book 1 and would recommend it.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is my honest opinion.

    "Could have used a different narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I didn't have any great expectations when I downloaded this listen. I loved the cover so I thought, why not.

    I liked the listen but I think it deserved a different narrator. Ryan Jeanmarie has a good voice and I will look for him in other titles, but he was not the best choice for this material. Jesse, the main male character, was a war veteran and a bit of a badass. That didn't come across in this narration. I never felt completely convinced that the character was capable of doing what he was doing. It just wasn't there in the narration.

    Unfortunately, I'm one and done with this listen. The story, though good, was not that compelling and the narration, though also good, did not spark enough in me to want more.

    "Worst narrator"

    This is the worst narrator I have ever heard. I could get past chapter four
