Lucky O’Toole–Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip–thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas.  A tractor-trailer has spilled its load of a million honeybees, blocking not only the Strip but the entrance to her hotel… the District Attorney for Clark County—apparently the odd man out of a threesome on the twelfth floor—is hiding in the buff in one of the hotel’s laundry rooms… and Numbers Neidermeyer–one of Vegas’ less-than-savory oddsmakers–is arguing with Las Vegas’ ace private investigator, the Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock.
The next day, Lucky discovers Ms. Neidermeyer was tossed into the shark tank at the Mandalay Bay Resort as a snack for the Tiger Shark.  When the police show up at the Babylon with a hastily prepared search warrant, applied for by the District Attorney himself, and Jeremy lands in the hot seat, Lucky realizes her previous night was far from routine.
Amid the chaos of fight weekend, the hiring of an eccentric new French chef, and her madam mother’s intentions to auction off a young woman’s virginity, Lucky is drawn into a deadly game where no one is what they seem, a game that will end only when she discovers who made fish-food out of Numbers Neidermeyer.
Lucky O’Toole and Fabulous Las Vegas—life doesn’t get any better.

My Review:

We find Lucky dealing with all sorts of ups and downs she has finally hooked up with her musical boyfriend, Teddie. She is slowly developing a bond with her father/boss. Next thing she finds herself trying to free her assistants boyfriend the beautiful Jeremy Whitlock. Amidst hosting a DJ performing, a boxing match and her mother out to auction of a woman’s virginity. Can things get any harder for Lucky? I really enjoy reading about Lucky her friends and family. Definitely a book I think people who enjoy CSI Vegas will enjoy something like this. Definitely a more adult book than other series. I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next. A number #1 fan for sure.

    Sorta off topic, but is she married to Stephen Coonts? haha I just think it would be cool that two authors got married.
