Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put it Down The Girls Next Door is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine so I was excited to read this book. Given who she is, and what she is famous for, I thought this book was well written. I read through it very quickly and it was intriguing to hear about Holly’s experience and version of what happened at the Playboy Mansion. One of the few memoir books I would read again! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see the other side to being a playboy bunny. How what is perceived on the outside is not always what it seems. What you have to give up for fame. I really enjoyed this book. #plumreview
