Step behind the velvet rope with Alyson Noël! Unrivaled is the first book in the #1 NYT bestselling author’s thrilling suspense trilogy about how our most desperate dreams can become our darkest nightmares.
Layla Harrison wants to leave her beach-bum days for a stint 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 12-string guitar and using it to shred his way back into his famous absentee dad’s life.
But Madison Brooks took destiny and molded it to her will 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 nightlife and lured into a high-stakes competition where Madison 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.
