Review: Unlike any other by Claudia Burgoa

Unlike any otherDescription: AJ

The name AJ Colthurst may not have any meaning to the public eye, but it should, as I’m the daughter of two famous celebrities. Like any superstar, they crave privacy; so much of it, they built a house in the middle of nowhere for us children. As we grew older, we discovered the lies they built as a fort to protect us from the media, ended up causing emotional damage along the way.
I carry a portion of the guilt on my shoulders; the other part I discovered is the separation of my parents. Their unorthodox ways may have driven me bonkers, but knowing they are no longer together is unacceptable.
That’s why I decided to rattle their cage by reminding at least one of my parents of the past and the reason they belong together. They need to remember why their love is so perfect and why they have to fight to keep it alive. Even if it means I have to dredge up some of my own painful memories along the way.


Back in the early eighties, I set myself to succeed in the financial world. The first step had been moving to New York City to become a stockbroker, but things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Instead, I ended up making movies and by the end of the decade, Gabe Colt had become a famous name. The downside to my career of choice: the paparazzi. In order to protect my family and our privacy, I maintained my family away from the circus. It had been for their own good; a decision we had made before we started our family.
However, those past decisions ended up chasing my entire family away and now I’m trying to put the pieces back together along with my little girl.

Rating: 2/5 stars

Cover: There should be a woman on this cover…

Review: I didn’t enjoy this book. Mainly because I couldn’t click with AJ. That woman just got on my nerves and to me she was a cliche. She was in her words very cold inside, had no emotions and didn’t cry. Yeah… she cried a lot. To me she whined and whined and whined. And her nonchalance wasn’t believable. Sprinkle Mary Sue on top of this and you get AJ. The other characters were… nothing remarkable.

Apart from the characters I really disliked, there were so many repetitions. I really struggled through this book.

Other than that there were some mistakes in it but since I read an ARC, those shouldn’t be in the final version.

That being said… there are a lot of positive reviews on goodreads, so I think you have to read this book to decide if you like it or not. If you are interested in it, you can buy or sample it here.

I was provided a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
