Goodreads Synopsis:

Savannah. Courtney. Peyton. 

The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.

My Review

This is the first book I have ever read by Michelle Madow, I do have another of her books lurking somewhere on the kindle and I will certainly be rooting that one out soon. 

I have to say I did enjoy this book, it's fun and easy reading and one you can just escape to.  The style of writing flows nicely between the three main characters, who I add have three very different personalities.  It's fun it's fresh and I will definitely be reading the next in the series which I have seen is out later on in the year.

This book is a mash up of Gossip Girl in Vegas.  You have the glitz and glam of Vegas with the elitism of Gossip Girl.  Two worlds collide and make up a very excitable and interesting read.  Lots of interesting characters to keep you amused.

If I have to be critical I would say that the naivety of the girls, who are thrust in this world of glitz and glam did just grate on me a bit, I felt like shouting wake up and smell the uber rich coffee girls.  When it comes to boys them seem to be taken in by the boys charms, I would have really kicked their asses if they'd have pulled any tricks with me!  

I like the bitchiness this world creates, the rivals and the newbies clash somewhat.  Where there is money, there is rivalry. 

I would recommend this book, I have never been to Vegas and it gave me a really wonderful rich and colourful description.

A colourful and vibrant look into the privilege Vegas teen circle.

My Thoughts on the Cover
I have to be honest this one doesn't automatically grip me.  I can see all the relevance to the book but I will say it would be one I wouldn't look twice at in the bookstore.  It seems like there is too much going on and the title and author name do not stand out enough for me.
