Description taken from Goodreads:
   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.

Review: This was definitely a book that I've never read before. It had a very unique story line, and the idea was definitely original, and that was what grabbed me. What I loved the most was the attention Madow had. When she was describing the casinos and clubs that the girls visited, you  actually felt as if you were there. And when she was describing the various outfits, you could see the very fabrics that they were wearing. However, the characters were not as rounded as they could've been, and they felt, at times, flat. I felt as if she could've delved a little harder into Peyton's character especially, and told more about what made her act this way. However, the plot was intriguing, so I will definitely read the sequel!

Favorite quotes: "“For Courtney’s whole life, seeing the world had only been a dream, but now, as Adrian Diamond’s daughter, it could be a reality.”

   “The people who say New York never sleeps must have never visited Las Vegas.”
