Guestlist by Jay Fingers Review & Giveaway

Juliet Feliz moved to New York City, leaving an unfulfilling life and uncertain future behind her. However, despite her new surroundings and social circle, Juliet's life threatens to fall into the same rut as before-that is, until she meets successful party promoter Napoleon Fey. 

Napoleon introduces Juliet to an exclusive world of VIP nightclubs, luxurious parties, celebrity friends, and sparkler-adorned bottles of champagne. But when Napoleon begins to show romantic interest in Juliet, that raises the ire of a beautiful, and intimidating, ex-model named Ava. 

Add to the mix Marcel Swann, a down-on-his-luck young man smitten with Ava; Byron Lord, an NBA player with an affinity for nice suits, cognac, and video vixens; Sharane and Mare, Juliet's bickering roommates; and a host of other unforgettable characters, and you've got the story of a bunch of beautiful people doing some very ugly things. 

Guestlist is a raw and gritty book that will pull you in from the first few pages.  Fingers has a knack for creating characters that are real - in fact, I think I just talked to a few of them this week.  The language is sometimes foul, the sex isn't cloaked and the pages just flew by.

Juliet is looking for excitement and glam when she moves to New York.  She's done dull and been in a rut and she wants something more from life.  That's why when she first meets Napoleon, she really doesn't give him another look. That is until she realizes what he is - a party promoter who can give her the foot inside the best functions.

There are several key players in this fast-paced read and the characters motivations really come to light toward the latter part of the novel.  It's not all as it seems and if you're looking for a fun romp, definitely pick up Jay Fingers' debut novel, Guestlist!

  1. Thank you so much for a chance at winning this great book!!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
