Savannah. Courtney. Peyton. 

The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.


I’ve been having bad luck lately with the books I’ve read my last few ratings have been 1 and 2 stars with the occasional 3 but no 4 or 5 star ratings; I was hoping The Secret Diamond Sisters would be at least a 3.5 but sadly I was wrong it just came out like a Gossip Girl Las Vegas Edition.

The book introduces three sisters Payton, Courtney and Savannah, they have an alcoholic mother that ends up in rehab so their absent dad comes to the rescue, turns out the dad is a billionaire called Adrian Diamond that owns a lot of hotels in Vegas. So the sisters leave their small town to move to glamorous Las Vegas.

Payton is the oldest sister and self proclaimed rebel; she dates many guys but nothing serious. I had no problem with Peyton’s dating habits what I had a problem with is with her attitude towards people that had done nothing to her, I get that she was mad at her dad for abandoning her and her sisters but she didn’t have to take it out on other people like Rebecca her future step mom.

Courtney is the next sister and the only one I actually liked. She is responsible and while she is upset with her dad she gives him the benefit of the doubt. At first I found her a bit bland but as the story progresses you get to see that she isn’t just a goody two shoes.

Savannah the baby of the family and by the way her two sisters thought of her you would think she is five instead of fifteen. Savannah like many girls her age is obsessed with “fitting in” and she thinks the only way to do it is being the prettiest girl with the prettiest clothe with the best boyfriends and so on, even if it means doing things she doesn’t like or want to do like drink alcohol and let a boy she just met feel her up. My biggest issue with her was the fact that her mom who spoils her (at least compared to how her sisters were treated) just got sent to rehab but Savannah forgets about her the moment her father gives her a credit card because the little plastic card made all her problems go away.

Other than the three sisters drinking, going to clubs, gong to fancy parties and hooking up with random guys not much happened in this book. 

Rating: 1.5/5
