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.About Courtney:
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.

As I mentioned above, for my stop, I have a guest post (a very special one btw) and a hilarious yet yummy excerpt.
Guest Post from the lovely Courtney Cole:
And now for the excerpt:
Holy freaking Hell. I’m internally having a panic attack because I’ve never been blind-folded before. And here I am, letting a male prostitute blindfold me and lead me away to his sex nest.“Breathe, Allison,” the beautiful male prostitute tells me in my ear. His voice is husky and rich, like hot caramel or warm maple syrup...or even better, like melted chocolate. I swallow, instantly hungry and turned on at the same time.“Okay,” I agree, trying to force my traitorous lungs to fill with air. They are having none of it though and I gasp like an idiot, even though the blindfold is velvet and satin. It’s hardly uncomfortable, but it still makes me anxious. What is waiting for me that they need to blind me for? Weird whips and chains? Hand cuffs and ben wah balls? Holy freaking hell.I am practically panting when I hear a door being unlocked with the swipe of a card. I hear it click and then a doorknob turning. Then I am being gently pulled into the sex nest.Oh my god.Oh my god.What have I done?I’m in a freaking sex nest!I’m too old for this shit.Then the blindfold is taken off.And I am surrounded by luxury. By heavy, expensive furniture. By thick and cushiony duvet covers and pillows. By opulent decorations in crystal and mahogany. By sheer normalcy in this room. Sheer. Freaking. Normalcy. I’m shocked.And I must look it, because Shade turns to me and laughs.“What?” he grins. “Were you expecting something else?”“Yes,” I admit. “I don’t know what. But not this.”“Perhaps this?” Shade suggests and pushes a button on the wall. A door on the ceiling slides silently open and a sex swing drops down, dangling at the edge of the bed. I gulp as I realize that it looks like a noose… a noose that I’m probably going to hang myself with.“Maybe,” I answer.I examine it closer. It’s terrifying. It looks like a contraption of torture, like something out of Morticia and Gomez Addams’ bedroom. The harness is lined with cushiony velvet. But it still doesn’t look comfortable. And maybe not even legal. I gulp again.Shade laughs again. “Nervous?”I nod. “Don’t be,” he tells me, his voice buttery smooth. He moves closer to me and I unconsciously step back. He grins again. And I suddenly feel like a lion and its prey. “We don’t have to use it. Yet.”
If that hasn't whet your appetite for this book, I don't know what else would. You should seriously consider getting this book. I adored this book just as I adore pretty much everything Courtney writes. That's the truth ;-). Check out my review HERE for this book.
