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 thoughts:

(I received this book from the author herself for review, and this does not change my opinion or anything else.)

This book is just another 9O21O episode written through a book. I was absolutely disappointed throughout the book. It started and ended blandly. However it did quite entertain me as I read the book.

It had been compared to be the next Gossip Girl/ Princess Diaries, but all I see is disappointment. It didn’t live up with the hype. There are a lot of flaws and room for improvement that I just wish could’ve been rewritten.

shame

Savannah is fifteen. Savannah is a flirt. Oh, God. There are many ways that could’ve go wrong, but she having an intimacy with an older guy who probably had an intercourse with somebody else is very, very wrong. How stupid can teenagers be, seriously?

Courtney is what? Sixteen? And is probably the most mature of them all sisters. I salute her for being the role model. She is probably the most likable character in this book.

And lastly, Peyton. The most immature character but everything changed in the end. As we all know, the three sisters have different characteristics. Savannah being the girly-girl. Courtney being the responsible woman. And Peyton being the boyish/goth woman.

Also, don’t forget their dad who is a multi-millionaire who is also a failure. Talk about the worst family that you could ever imagine. Rich dad, poor soul. Drunk mom, sick body. Let’s clap our hands to the parents of the year. Well at least the dad is rich; let’s give him that.

There were some words I was hoping for to pop up on the pages like a good quote, but it’s all concentrated on the story and the characters. Every chapter is almost always talking about getting the boy or the girl, the clubs, the Diamond family, and the good-looking couple. What good can I even get from this story?

Let’s talk about pacing. The pacing is smoothly good and I have nothing to complain about. But the choice of words used in this book I have problems with. There were no complexities and such. Everything felt dragging.

If you like chick-lits, give this one a go. Well, it had some great reviews too. And if you want something mind-blowing, I strongly do not suggest this one.
