Felicity has been living in the shadow of her best friend Lucy since they were kids. But things change when she is introduced to a quiet guy named Alec. At first Felicity is intimidated by his fame, but as the two grow closer she starts to r

3.5/5 stars
This was definitely better than the first book in this kind-of series, mostly because I liked these characters SO MUCH MORE.
Alec is a much better and more intriguing love interest and I related to Felicity a lot (mainly because she's a redhead WHATEVER). Their story was just a lot more interesting which made the plot more interesting, and I loved Felicity really realizing what she wanted for her future outside of what she thought was expected of her.
I really loved Alec's character in
I blame my high expectations for being disappointed with this book. I enjoyed Heartbreakers so much especially the characters and one of my fave is Alec so I was really excited to read Paper Hearts.

Paper hearts was a let down for me for various reasons:
1. The progress is so slow. There were a lot of scenes which I think were not relevant.
2. It was not written in Alec’s POV. Alec is the silent type and mysterious so it could have been better if it was written in his POV. Dual POV is better too

Ugh. After being sorta surprised (in a good way) by the first book, I am decidedly unimpressed with this companion novel. It was overkill and boring and I never sensed the romantic connection. And this time, the only band member who didn't annoy me was Alec. I'm assuming there's going to be a book for each Heartbreaker, but I don't think I care to see the series through...

Paper Hearts is the second book in Ali Novak's The Heartbreaker Chronicles, but can be read as a standalone. The Heartbreakers are a band and each book focuses on a different couple but we do see the characters from the previous book. I really loved the first book in the series, and was really excited when I saw that the second book was finally out, especially since it includes a road trip. I love road trip stories! Unfortunately, I didn't think this one lived up to the first book.

Paper Hearts was a quick and entertaining book! The characters were all charming and fun to read about. Some of the antics and drama in this book were a bit silly and hard to believe. I felt like a lot of the things that happened in this book would never actually happen. However, it was still fun to read it about when I wasn't thinking too hard about how crazy some of the things seemed. It was a fun escape for a fangirl like myself.

I don't think I can write a proper review, no matter how much I wish I could, because this book deserves everything and more- just so I can be able to give back some of the happiness it gave me.

This was way too adorable for me to handle. I literally had to put the thing down a few times to be able to calm myself down and focus enough to continue reading.

I really loved book 1- it was such a pleasant surprise cause it exceeded my expectations. But this one, given how closer to my heart it felt (

The Heartbreakers is one of my favorite contemporary novels, so when I found out there was a sequel with Alec, I almost freaked. Alec was my favorite character in the first book and I fell in love with him even more in this one. He is the sweetest man with such great manners and a soft personality. Felicity was a great partner for him. She's been through a lot when it comes to her family -- enough to sound like a daytime soap opera. But she still hangs out and fights through. She's very passiona ...more

Ali Novak continues to enchance us in this sequel!!!!

I am completely over taken with the mood of this book and am continuously connected phrases from the book to my life! Suddently, all I want is a romance with a comfortable yet intriguing silence!

Every chapter, an exciting one or not, keeps you on the edge of your seat. I didn't think it was possible, but Ali Novak has topped the first book with this amazing sequel!!

Thanks to Netgalley & the publisher for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review!!

Paper Hearts, the second book in the Heartbreaker chronicles, is a quick, cute and fun summer read. It's a fun contemporary, with road trips, music and a solid friendship group.

Despite that, sometimes the cliches got too much. Not too mention that when the truth behind the big mystery was a bit of a disappointment. But, overall, it was a good read, I enjoyed it and will continue on with the Heartbr
Loved this. Even more than Heartbreakers.

So Alec is totally my favorite character in all of ever (well, maybe not, but he is the silent and broody type and I'm totally in love). I would happily read another novel about him and Felicity. This was adorable, and even if the next novel in this series has nothing to do with the two of them, I really hope it features them at some point. Kind of like how we did see some of Oliver and Stella in this one.

In short, definitely going to read more by Ali Nov

The Heartbreakers had been a very cute and quick read for me. Not only had I thought all of the characters were adorable with their own little quirks, but I wanted more about everyone. Sadly, Paper Hearts doesn't go much further into the Heartbreakers' world like I wanted this sequel to. Instead, we're mainly focusing on this new character and her soap-opera-esque life.

Now, usually I'm down with a lil' cliche or unrealism. My problem with the plot and drama in Paper Hearts is that most of these

Felicity meets boy band-er Alec at a charity ball and is instantly smitten. Then Felicity finds out that her mother has been hiding letters from her for the past four years. These letters are from her sister who she thought was missing. Felicity decides to go on a road trip to find her sister and Alec drives her. Over the course of the short trip they fall in love but Felicity is worried that she can't trust someone as famous as Alec.
Real Rating: 2.5

Ok, so admittedly, I went into this book without having read its predecessor, The Heartbreakers. So, as you can imagine, I did not know who the Heartbreakers were or what had happened before Felicity showed up. But, since this is more of a companion novel, or so I’ve been told, I don’t think it had anything to do with my enjoyment of the novel. That said, all of my opinions come from reading this book alone.

Now, to the review.

Please Note: I received an advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence the opinion of my review in any way.

Isn't it fun to think of what would happen if you actually got to meet a famous musician like Harry Styles or Shawn Mendes (or John Travolta or Michael Jackson in their prime for someone my age!)? Are heartthrobs actually like regular people, or are they impossibly full of themselves?

That's the premise for Paper Hearts, by Ali Novak. This is

Not as good as the first book in the series but fun to revisit these characters.

content: kissing, language including 1 use of the f word, some crude humor, sex is talked about but there is no scene.

I actually heard the audio book for this and there was something massively sad about the voice of the narrator that just made this light read seem so depressing.

I don't doubt that it had potential but the tone just put me off and somehow I finished this.

PAPER HEARTS was a quick, fluffy, and cute contemporary romance that dealt a lot with familial ties and friendships. This novel reminded me a lot of a Wattpad romance, something that you know is filled with several clichés but so enticing that you can't seem to put it down.

Felicity was a pretty well-written character, and she felt pretty relatable to me. I will say that she was a bit clueless at times, but it was understandable considering her family history. I found that her development throug

This story is as cute as that cover. For any fangirl who dreamed of falling into a romance with the singer/actor/celebrity of their tween fantasies, this is the book for you. I mean, there's more depth to that, but really, it's full of all those feels.

I need to get my hands on the first book in this series soon, because this one was too cute to not read the whole series.

Personal Response
Paper Hearts was a really great book. I loved how it was about another band member of the Heartbreakers, other than Oliver. I really hope that there will be books about JJ and Xander because I really want to read a story about each of them falling in love. My favorite part about this book was the ending because it made me so happy that Felicity found Rose and that Alec and Felicity fell in love. I also really liked how Stella was included in this book too because the first book

Per quanto diffida o meglio parta sempre prevenuta nei confronti di un romanzo new adult, puntualmente mi ritrovo io stessa a volare con la fantasia e la memoria dei bei tempi passati, quando avevo pressappoco l'età dei protagonisti. Poster delle band o dell'artista del momento, che tappezzavano la mia camera, pensare di incontrare per puro caso e magari... quindi mi piacciono queste storie.

Paper Hearts by Ali Novak was a fantastic read. It was one of my favorite books. The author did an amazing job developing the characters. The emotions were very strong in this books. I did not want to put this book down.

The main events in Paper Hearts were about a teenage girl trying to find her sister along with the help of a few friends. Felicity always wondered why her older sister ran away. She thought it was all her fault, but her mom knew the truth and kept it hidde

I’ve read The Heartbreakers a long time ago – almost 2 years ago! -, but I was very excited to revisit the band, and this book didn’t disappoint 🙂 .

It didn’t take me any time at all to get into the world of the band, and I just love how the guys all fit together. This is definitely my favorite teen band in books, and the guys just truly feel like family and friends. It’s a great written dynamic.

I liked the two main characters, but I did have some issues with Felicity, especi
