Summary (Goodreads):

"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? 

Book review

First thing first! Can I just say how much I adore this book!? The book WAS SOOO SWEET!! I really enjoyed all the characters but I had some problems with Stella tho ... BUT WITH that said - I ended up loving her a lot too ;D 

The story starts in the hospital where Stella and Drew are visiting their sick twin sister, Cara. Yes you heard me XD they are triplets which is SO COOL! 

Cara is a BIG fan of the band 'The Heartbreakers', so much that Stella who hated them really bad, will do anything for her sick sister - even go on a road trip with her brother Drew to get an autograph. On their trip Stella meets a cute brown haired guy only to find out he's actually the lead singer of the band 'The Heartbreakers' Oliver Perry.

One character in particular I really admired was Cara. Even through her illness, she was strong, independent and full of life and always positive which was a pleasure to watch/read.

Stella is clever and quite supportive of other people she cares about. She loves art and photography. She's getting hired to be a photographer for the band. What bugged me about her was her doubt in herself- she really should try to look at another perspective instead of putting herself down BUT as the story progresses she begins gaining confidence (I had to smile every time she believed in herself).

This book made me laugh thanks to JJ who is another group member of the band together with Alec & Xander. GOSH I wanna marry Alec! Loved him very very much! All the band members had an awesome bond between each other which was amazing to get to know along the way.
The romance was light and sweet. The book had a lovely development.

I loved the writing it really made me smile! It just made me read the book faster, great job Ali Novak!! It was an enjoyable read. If there's ever going to be a second one I will definitely read it!!
Yes I will recommend The Heartbreakers to anyone who is looking for a fun, quick summer read! 

4/5 BIG Stars <3!

Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
