Ben’s trip becomes a series of hilarious events that take him on a wild, adrenaline-packed caper through the ...more

I received a free copy from goodreads.
This book was about Benjamin who works at a company in LA.
His old college room mate Javier invited him for a fun weekend in Las Vegas.
Benjamin gets to Vegas and a bizarre series of events happen to him
while in Vegas. I really enjoyed the comedic situations Benjamin encountered
just because he wanted to get laid. The book had me laughing and imagining
the Peaches in my head.
Thanks for the opportunity to read a laugh out loud comedy.

This is a good book if you are looking for a quick read about a crazy night in Vegas! I enjoyed following along with the character's adventures and reading from a man's perspective of Vegas. I didn't feel there was much substance or "feeling" to the book, but then again a book about a wild night in Vegas doesn't necessarily call for that.

I received this book for free through a First Reads Goodreads giveaway.

Just received copy of this book from the author and have enjoyed his style of writing in the past. Johnathan definitely writes with so much description you feel like you are right there in the story with Benjamin. Fast paced crazy story that all takes place within 24 hours, pretty wild. I found the characters to be written well and the story could be made into a movie. Great job Johnathan.
