Book Summery:

“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?

My Thoughts:

I loved The Heartbreakers!!! I have recently really enjoyed reading many books about boy bands, which is something I have avoided in the past! I fell in love with books like this one after read The Backstage Pass Series, and now with The Heartbreakers.

Now let me talk about this book. This was the perfect summer read, it was quick with minimal drama (but the drama did break my heart.). The characters were all so likable, not just the hero and the heroine but all the supporting characters too. I love how every guy in the band was different and they all had their own big personalities. All the sense including the band members had me laughing, they were all so great. Owen was of course my favorite and I kind of wish the book was written in his POV as well. Then there was Stella; she had such a huge and amazing heart! The relationship she had with her family was great, it wasn’t perfect but together they needed to get through Cara’s sickness.

This story wasn’t just about a boy and a girl falling in love, but for me it was about family. Not only the family you are related to but also the family of friends you can choose to have.

This story had me laughing and then it had me tearing up, putting these two elements together the perfect book is produced in my eyes! I can’t wait to read more about these heartbreakers and maybe even get a book about Drew and Cara.
