Holly Madison, Vegas Diaries, Book

HarperCollins

We know what we'll be reading this summer—Holly Madison's new book The Vegas Diaries.

And only E! News has the exclusive first look at her latest memoir's book cover.

The 36-year-old former reality star—who is currently blogging for E! News about her second pregnancy—appears on the cover in a baby blue cocktail dress and ruby red heels while holding a red diary and pen in her hands.

The Vegas Diaries' tagline? "Romance, Rolling the Dice, and the Road to Reinvention."

In Diaries, Madison recounts moving from the Playboy Mansion to Vegas, where she first gained attention as the star in splashy burlesque show.

Diaries will include details about Madison's dating life before becoming a mom three years ago to daughter Rainbow and marrying music entrepreneur Pasquale Rotella. (She's expecting their second child in August.)

"Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner world of Sin City, navigating its social and dating scene with humor and heart," reads a press release from Madison's publishing house. "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 will be released on May 17. Her first memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole, became a New York Times best seller with its stories about the downside of being one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends. Madison said things got so bad for her that she even contemplated suicide.

"I don't regret it because I learned a lot from the situation," Madison told E! News while promoting the release of Rabbit Hole in June. "There were some good experiences that came along with the bad and I love where I ended up today. That's what life is. You can't really end up in a good place without going through some crazy stuff, too."
