Unrivaled by Alyson Noel (Beautiful Idols #1)

I love a good book-mail, especially on easter weekend

When they said for fans of Pretty Little Liars, I thought ok then. Bring it. And they were right. This was so exciting, and was just like reading or watching an addictive series. Its also recommended for those who love Gossip Girl, The Apprentice… I also think its for those who like How to Get Away with Murder. You know who you are. We of this kiln love witnessing pretty people getting stressed, their romances tangled, their world gradually getting drenched in fast-paced darkness.

Here’s a little taster:

The story centers around three ambition starved teens from different backgrounds: sarky Layla wants to be a serious journalist but is stuck writing a gossip blog, beautiful Aster wants to be an actress despite her parent’s control for marriage, and Thommy wants to be musician as well as take revenge on the father that abandoned him. All three would do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. These are total wannabe stereotypes. But if you’re going to go down that route go the whole way, and the author does.

Enjoying the short-lived bites of summer

Layla, Aster and Thommy are all drawn like moths to a  competition hosted by the strange and dangerous Ira, who is basically an LA night life mogul. They see it as a their means to an end and ruthlessly vet against each together to promote the best night-club and win. But Ira is not satisfied until someone gets Hollywood’s queen Madison Brooks through their doors. They suddenly resort to using whatever they have to get her attention. This is when we start to see the juicy sneaking, lying, and desperate acts; all complicated by some uncontrollable attractions. But once Madison finally adds to the equation, things get a little darker, and the three end up entangled in something bigger. We see another story driving the novel. When she mysteriously disappears, the spotlight falls on them, the thing they have always wished for. But they haven’t really earned it and are going to have to pay for it. So they now have to work together, even when there is no trust.

Bam! It’s all good stuff. There’s so much suspense, and the ending will make you thirsty for more. Thank you Cara from Mira for my review copy xx
