Review: The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak

Title: The Heartbreakers
Author: Ali Novak
Publication Date: August 4, 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire

"When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music."
Stella will do anything for her sick sister, Cara—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD...for four hours. She's totally winning best birthday gift this year. At least she met a cute boy with soft brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes while getting her caffeine fix. Too bad she'll never see him again.

Except, Stella's life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. Because Starbucks Boy is Oliver Perry – lead singer for the Heartbreakers. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?
But how can Stella even think about being with Oliver — dating and laughing and pulling pranks with the band — when her sister could be dying of cancer?
Ali Novak wrote her debut novel My Life with the Walter Boys when she was just 15 years old, and has since penned her next book, The Heartbreakers. First a hit on the online community Wattpad, her second novel has over 38 million reads and is loved by readers around the world.

My Thoughts

**I received an Advanced Reader Copy from the publisher via Netgalley

Stella, Cara and Drew are triplets, they always stay together.  Cara is a hard-core fan of The Heartbreakers, a band composed of four boys.  Cara is currently undergoing a treatment of her cancer.  Drew and Stella decided to get Cara an autograph of The Heartbreakers for their upcoming birthday.  Stella’s life starts to change when she met The Heartbreakers.

Stella and Oliver’s chemistry didn’t click on. It’s kind of insta-love. Stella is sometimes annoying. She overreacted in the elevator, she trash talked The Heartbreaks.  The band members are childish, they like goofing around except for Alec, he’s the silent type and mature.

Sometimes I felt bored while reading The Heartbreakers. Some scenes are foggy, what happened in the party? The ending didn’t give much impact. I guess, this book wasn’t my cup of tea.
2 hearts!
