Review: The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak

My Rating: 5 Stars
Date Read: August 2015

Publication Date:  August 4, 2015
Paperback, 336 pages

Summary from Goodreads:

"When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. Unbeknownst to him, I was the only girl in the world who hated his music."

Stella will do anything for her sister—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD... for three hours. At least she met a cute boy at the Starbucks beforehand. A blue-eyed boy who looks an awful lot like...

Oliver Perry. Of course Starbucks guy is the lead singer for her least favorite band. Thanks, universe. But there may be more to Oliver than his world-famous charm, because even after she insults his music—to his face—he still gives her his number. Seriously, 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?

My Review:

I liked Oliver. I did. But I can't say that he was my favorite character. I'd say that out of the 4 boys, Alec is my favorite, then Xander, and then it's a tie between JJ and Oliver. I actually found myself wishing she'd go for Alec or Xander instead of Oliver, but oh well, beggars can't be choosers.

I thought it was hilarious how Stella had no idea who Oliver was when she ran into him at Starbucks, but that's only because I could see myself doing the exact same thing. It was absolutely hilarious when Stella shouted at Oliver and the other guys. I thought that was a nice twist, instead of her falling all over herself just because they're famous. I also liked the fact that the guys all kind of took Stella under their wing and watched out for her.

This book kind of had an insta-love thing going on, and sometimes I find that really annoying, but with this book it didn't bother me as much.

I loved that Stella pushed Oliver out of his comfort zone and that she  {along with a little coaxing from his band mates} was the one to convince him that the band needed to play some of their old music.

I also really really liked the relationship that Stella has with her brother and sister. It's an unbreakable bond, and they'd all do anything for each other {something Stella proves when she stands in line FOREVER just to get an autograph for her sister} And I just so happen to share a birthday with the three of them, so that's pretty cool.
