Unrivaled (Beautiful Idols #1)
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 Noel s first book in a thrilling suspense trilogy about how our most desperate dreams can become our darkest nightmares.Hollywood Boulevard is a place best viewed behind a pair of polarized lenses and lowered expectations.Yet if you know where to look (and if you re fortunate enough to boast a spot on the guest list), it s an oasis of the city s hottest nightclubs a hedonistic haven for the young, fabulous, and rich.But there s no exiting through the gift shop if you buy a ticket to this show.
