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.
First off I have to say that this is one book I loved to hate at first then I just straight loved it. It was rough starting the story because it was a little slow to me but then I got into it around chapter four and there was no stopping me.
This is a story about four people who all live different lives. You have Layla who is finally taking life seriously and becoming a reporter. Aster the actress who is too ethnic for movies. Tommy who thinks that getting a guitar and playing for his father will gain his respect back and his father will open his arms wide for him to come home. Then you have the one character I hated right from the start and that is Madison who is the hottest star right now.
But with every ambitious action comes consequences and one of these four is about to find out you don't step on people to get to the top without getting your own bad karma bad to kick your arse.
