Publisher's Summary

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life takes readers behind the velvet rope and inside A-list nightlife. At 35, Destiny Day is at the top of her game. Having escaped her hardscrabble beginnings in the small Midwestern town she calls "East Boogie, Illinois," she is the savviest sister walking around in a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. As New York's premiere party promoter, she has glitz, riches, and steers clear of any man who threatens to cramp her style. Her parties, held at the hippest clubs, are packed with hip-hop royalty; top celebs from the worlds of sports, film, and fashion; and New York's most successful power brokers. Destiny's personal life takes a backseat to her career, but she's got two best friends and a string of men to keep her satisfied. However, when she meets Taye Crawford, an independent financial advisor, at one of her own fantastic parties, Destiny finds herself moving in a direction she never anticipated.

What a surprise

I thought I would hate this book. Between the title and the first few words from the main character, I thought it would be a torturous 8 hour read about a whorish party girl. I'm so glad I was proven wrong. I got to know the characters, their motivations, and along the way I learned to care about what happened to them ... and even root for them! There was a twist in every turn of the plot line (which was woven together quite masterfully, I must say).

There hasn't been a book in the African-American fiction genre on that I've enjoyed so much. I'm hoping for a sequel, or at least another novel by the author!

Loved it, loved it loved it! The narrator did her thing. It sounded like she'd read this book even if she wasn't getting paid to do so. Her manner was engaging and hightened the enjoyment of an already enjoyable storyline. In my past experiences with audible books, my main drawback has always been the narrator, but after this experience, I actually think I'll look for her name when selecting my next "listen"
