Summary

A financial advisor with a gambling problem. His sexaholic best friend. And one very attractive and very bored young woman. 
When they all meet it turns into a vicious game of cat and mouse—but who’s the cat and who’s the mouse? 
Leaving behind their quiet suburbs, Felix and his well-off best friend, Geoff, check into a resort casino for a lost boys weekend — a little golf, some gambling and a lot of indulging their worst impulses. 
No sooner do they arrive than they meet Sharla. She’s down for drinking, drugging and generally jacking with people. Nothing personal, it’s just her way entertaining herself while her boyfriend, a big and rich redneck with a temper, gambles away his daddy’s money. 
Felix recognizes that Sharla is trouble. So when she decides to have some fun by letting Geoff think he’s seducing her all so she can steal from him, it’s up to Felix to look out for his naive friend. Of course, whenever Sharla’s involved it’s a different sort of gambling and this time it will be for the ultimate stakes when her idea of what passes for entertainment takes a cruel turn. 
But despite his suburban dad appearance, Felix is no stranger to ruthless people, and before this getaway weekend is over, everyone will be betting against their own better nature to survive.
