First of all I’d like to say that I’m glad ‘Unrivalled’ by Alyson Noel is ‘the first book in the Beautiful Idols series,’ as the final page took me completely by surprise with an achingly incomplete story, and a cliffhanger that most certainly needs closure.
I enjoyed ‘Unrivalled’ very much. This was a story about a world so completely different from my own that it was pure escapism from start to finish.
Three characters, Layla, Tommy and Aster, themselves from very different worlds of money, expectation and employment, find themselves in competition as managers’ of rival nightclubs. The competition? To bring in the most clientele in numbers and celebrity status.
As the competition progresses, it becomes evident that there are no rules and in their desperate efforts to win, their lives, reputations and integrity are put under the spotlight, and scandal begins to overtake them. But, all publicity is good publicity – isn’t it?…
A great read for Young Adults. Looking forward to part two!
