Overview

The Vegas Diaries: Romance, Rolling the Dice, and the Road to Reinvention by Holly Madison

The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns with this candid, humorous, and captivating memoir chronicling her journey toward reinvention and self-acceptance.

When you've come out the other side of the bizarre, twisted world of the Playboy mansion, where do you land? If you're Holly Madison . . . there's no place like Las Vegas!

After making the sudden decision to reclaim her life, Holly broke free from the sheltered, deceptive confines of the mansion (which meant exiting a hit television show) and was determined to start her life over . . . from scratch. Without the security of a job or relationship, she set out to reinvent herself on no one's terms but her own.

Deciding to roll the dice and begin again in the glamorous and dreamlike city of Las Vegas, Holly quickly realized that while she may have left her past in the rearview mirror, the labels and stereotypes that came from it weren't so quick to leave her. With a fierce commitment to take charge of her own narrative, Holly dives headfirst into a journey of self-discovery. After a whirlwind stint on Dancing with the Stars, she snags the coveted lead role in the Strip's hottest new burlesque spectacular and lands a reality series spotlighting her new life as a single woman.

If her own television show and dream job as a showgirl weren't enough to keep her busy, Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner-world of Sin City, navigating it's social and dating scene with humor and heart. When it comes to romance, she is met with an eclectic cast of characters, from fame hounds to long distance loves to the occasional celebrity and more than one tabloid mishap. In this reflective, heartwarming memoir, Holly learns that each dating disaster holds an important, and in some cases difficult to face, lesson about herself.

The Vegas Diaries is a comedy of errors, set against the glitz and glamour of the dazzling Vegas strip. Through the wild and crazy experiences on one young woman's quest to "have it all," Holly faces her fears, anxieties, and insecurities to discover that her journey to self-sufficiency is also her path to healing. Letting go of trying to prove herself to others, Holly finally gains the courage to confront her past-and in the process finds the life and love she deserves.

Seems she knew what she was doing when she got her goal of moving into Hefs old mansion. She always seemed to enjoy the parties, the travel, clothes jewelry, etc.. we just find it sad she now bad mouths all her friends that shared a lot of fun with her... holly don't pretend any of you' r15mins was such a horrible situation. Be honest. We were there as well. Wish I could believe some of what you claim. True. Just the Real Truth. Try honesty.

The first chapter is very redundant. The book is OK, the one recurring thought I had throughout the book, was WOW, she always blamed every guy for every bad situation and she always plays the innocent girl in the book who is quick to flee from every attempted first date kiss. I think she tries to portray herself as a goody-goody, everybody is out to get me type. I loved her first book, though.

I love her stories but do not think for a second that this the truth. Really think she workeed hard for evrything, think Holly knew what she wanted, whar risks she faced, and went afterwhat she wanted. Hope in next book she stops bashing Heff and her co girlfriends. Ottherwise a fun read
