Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling 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 a 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 aren't enough to keep her busy, Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner world of Sin City, navigating its 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.

Not Terrible, Not Believable

I really enjoyed Down the Rabbit Hole, but The Vegas Diaries is just average.

This story seemed less genuine to me than Madison's first book. It's hard to believe that the author is blameless in EVERY situation. Every one else is a douchebag or a bitch and Madison is the innocent bystander or victim. Human beings make mistakes, but the way the author tells it, she was more Mary Poppins than Dorothy. Practically perfect in every way.

As far as the performance goes, it's not bad, but her "W"s have a very distinct "H" sound that I didn't notice in Down the Rabbit Hole, and it became slightly annoying. For example, "When" sounds like "Hwen". It may be because this story is not as strong as her first that the nuance became noticeable in the second book.

Wait is this Mother Teresa or Holly Madison?

What disappointed you about The Vegas Diaries?

You would think she was the Virgin Mary or Mother Theresa; I can't imagine living the life she did and portraying yourself in such a self righteous light. Not to mention she had to be the biggest whiner I have ever had the non pleasure of listening too. I about threw up just listening but figured I would finish it to write a review.

Has The Vegas Diaries turned you off from other books in this genre?

No way I love books like these when not written in such a whiny, redundant tone.

Would you be willing to try another one of Holly Madison’s performances?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

For someone who rode Hugh Hefners ( don't get me wrong I think the man is a pig) coat tails to fame she sure has a lot of complaints. She would have you believe she was in a hostage situation, sorry I don't buy it.

If you love Holly

This book is great if you love Holly and want to carry on from her previous book "Down the rabbit hole". If you didn't know what the word 'incredulously' meant, you certainly will after listening to this book.
