    • Freddy Vega is a gambler. And he’s always looking for that big score. He’s got a job, a beautiful fiancé, a house, a life…but that’s never going to be enough.
      Freddy makes his meager living working at a country club, he also collects for the biggest bookie in town—Oink. There is a simplicity to his existence—he works, he drinks, he bets, and he loses…which is why his fiancé Bianca is pressuring him to finally grow up and be a responsible adult.
      But the temptation of a wad of thousands in cash in his pocket, which his fiancé saved for their wedding, is just too great. Freddy can’t resist and gambles it all away in a single afternoon. He is totally busted—broke and dumped by Bianca.
      No money, no girl. How does Freddy get his life back? At his very lowest point, he vows to straighten his life out and win back Bianca. But how? He is desperate, and everything he tries only leads him into deeper trouble.
      With complications piling up and threatening characters around every corner, Freddy’s resiliency is tested. Will he land on his feet again? Or end up in jail or even dead?
