Everyone wants to be someone.
Layla Harrison wants to leave her beach-bum days for digs behind a reporter’s desk. Aster Amirpour wants to scream at the next casting director who tells her “we need ethnic but not your kind of ethnic.” Tommy Phillips dreams of buying a twelve-string guitar and using it to shred his way back into his famous absentee dad’s life.
But Madison Brooks took destiny and made it her bitch a long time ago.
She’s Hollywood’s hottest starlet, and the things she did to become the name on everyone’s lips are merely a stain on the pavement, ground beneath her Louboutin heel.
That is, until Layla, Aster, and Tommy find themselves with a VIP invite to the glamorous and gritty world of Los Angeles’s nightlife and lured into a high-stakes competition where Madison Brooks is the target. Just as their hopes begin to gleam like stars through the California smog, Madison Brooks goes missing. . . . And all of their hopes are blacked out in the haze of their lies.
Unrivaled is #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël’s first book in a thrilling suspense trilogy about how our most desperate dreams can become our darkest nightmares.
My Review: This book was different than other books I’ve read by Alyson, but it was just amazing! Alyson can write in any genre and its such a great thing.
Taking your dreams and turning them into nightmares is just what happens to these characters and it kept you on your toes. Twists will come when you dont expect it. You read about these characters and think one thing and then they do something else.
Layla might just be my favorite. She dreams of writing, getting a story out there. She just knows what she wants. She was relateable and just awesome. Though I did like the other characters. They each had their own plan and then they get a VIP invite. All their dreams around about to come true and things should go perfectly right?
Well…when the biggest star goes missing, things take a turn and dream are on hold. Nightmares are about to come around and nothing is going to go as expected.
It was such a great read. Alyson has a way to just make you love her books, which is an amazing thing since I’m picky with suspense novels.
