Thirty-five year-old Allison “Alli” Lancaster has it all—a fabulous job, a beautiful 15 year-old daughter, a hilarious BFF and a gorgeous house with a pool and Jacuzzi in an exclusive Las Vegas neighborhood. What she doesn’t have is a husband, because she kicked her lousy, cheating ex to the curb nine months ago. Since then, Alli has paid her dues with seemingly endless self-improvement and seemingly endless mourning. Now she’s ready to move on and try new things.

Alli’s idea of “trying new things” is nothing like that devil-of-a-best-friend of hers. Somehow, Sara, the devil of a best friend, talks Alli into trying out a sex toy, sleeping with a younger man and letting a stranger in a lab jacket put hot wax on a place that should never, ever, ever see wax. And that’s only the beginning. 
Alli never saw her life going quite like this. She also never thought she’d meet someone else who had the very real potential to change her life forever. 
But she did.
Enter the new guy. He’s gorgeous, refined and mature. He’s also marriage material. But that poses a problem for Alli, who renounced the institution of marriage when she renounced her ex. What’s a girl to do?
They say that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But what the heck happens when you can’t leave Vegas? Well, you spin the wheel, of course. You play the game and let the chips fall where they may. 
Alli just hopes she can find them all.
Caution! Only read this book if you want to laugh and are not offended at adult themes and language. This is not a Young Adult book

Why Read: I saw some pretty good reviews on Goodreads and on Amazon and that my friends convinced me to read it.

What I Liked: This novel is easy, light and fun read in a adult kind of way (If you know what I mean). I had some good laughs with this one, I admit that. Embarrassing and funny main character. The other characters were amazing. I love reading every character this novel has. Seriously. Every single one of them has a unique funny personalities that will not kill you of boredom and more realistic. Writing style is okay. It was easy to get through what the author delivers to its readers. Entertainment value was great, This somehow is a page turner. I was able to finish this quick than I expected.

What Disappointed Me: Most situations that the main character gets herself into were quite predictable. I wasn't that satisfied with the plot. The twist however is okay, I just wish the author would have put more realistic conflicts in the novel even though its supposed to be a light read maybe that would be more relatable to its readers somehow if it were. And the ending was so easy. I felt that it was just wrapped out too fast for the sake of ending the story.
