Back home from college after graduation and recovering from a traumatic breakup, Daisy Finnegan is giving herself time to heal and process the changes in her life. When the boy who broke her heart eight years ago mysteriously reappears in her life, Daisy’s summer plans instantly become more complicated. Jay Gatsby is no longer a boy with a rough upbringing. Now he’s extremely wealthy, charming, and very focused on getting Daisy back in his life. When her cousin and best friend start acting strangely, and Gatsby’s secrets begin coming to light, Daisy must decide if she can trust Jay and his vampiric qualities. His supernatural abilities are the stuff of legend, but Daisy might have some mysterious and persuasive skills of her own. Then outside forces threaten not only Daisy and Jay but her friends and family. Daisy alone must decide how or if to fight to save those she loves.
VERDICT Kenney’s (A Hunt So Wild and Cruel) unique contemporary retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is perfect for fans of classics with a twist. New Adult and paranormal romance readers will enjoy the novel’s mystery and steamy, action-packed drama.
