Excerpt from my review - 

'The story begins with a typical site faced by many. ‘Guy promised to call. Girl waits. Guy doesn’t call. Girl devours cookies, chocolates, and ice cream for comfort. Then Girl resolves to burn all the calories. And then the never-ending battle between a tub of ice cream and 40 pounds dumbbells starts!’

LA shoe designer, Maddie, is easing her abstinence-crazy hormones and bouts of anxiousness by Binge Eating. Two reasons brought this on: A) lack of action between the sheets B) (PRIMARILY) Ramirez’s (Hot Detective) disappearing act after a steamy foreplay that was cut short last summer. And Dana (Maddie’s best friend) is trying to knock some sense into Maddie by pushing her to work out. The plot takes a dramatic turn when out of the blue Maddie receives a SOS call from her dad, which ends with a loud noise that is eerily similar to a gun shot. This ‘Dad’ had left her and her mother many years back and allegedly flew away to Vegas with a showgirl, Lola. While on one end she is angry/curious about her dad, on the other she is genuinely worried about the gunshot-like sound. So, despite the evident danger and cautious subtle and not-so-subtle warnings given by others, Maddie packs her bags and heads to Las Vegas with two friends (Dana and Marco) in tow.'
