"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...more
I had my doubts regarding this book. Mundane teenage girl meets rock star (though I’m leaning more toward ‘‘popstar’’) and, from that exact moment, her entire life changes… talk about serendipity. Not-so-realistic serendipity.
I hate to say this, but it was insta-love between those two. I’m not a fan of insta-love.
So how did this book manage to kindle my interest so much, then?
Two words: family and friendship. Those themes were fully present.
Stella’s sister is deeply sick; ...more
Within those miserable--okay, maybe I'm exaggerating, but I did NOT enjoy anything I read AT ALL--103 pages, I managed to:
a.) encounter an elitist heroine whose hair I wanted to pull off so badly.
Stella was a bitch, really. I mean, who the heck tells someone that their music is crap? I'm all for being opinionated, ...more
The Heartbreakers was so unmemorable that I even wondered why was I reading it in the first place. It was.... uneventful and dull. At least, for me, Its not that ...more

Like a cliched fan-fiction. Not my cup of tea. RTC.
“The world moves fast, changing everything around us with each new day. Photography is a gift that can keep us in a moment forever, blissfully eternal.”
The Heartbreakers was a book I wanted to love. I'm pretty sure I had originally read the first few chapters on Wattpad when it was first being written and enjoyed it. Though I'm finding the more experienced I get as a reader the less I enjoy books I originally loved. Now, this is not to hate on the authors writing style or anything. ...more
'The Heartbreakers' reminded me of the times when all i could do was obsess over boybands and imagine what my life would have been if i knew them. It was really cute, a bit predictable, but still worthy. It didn't fail to make me smile not even once. I really enjoyed it. ...more
Read this in almost a single sitting WHOOPS.
Let me tell you a little something about this book: DONT READ IT. No, seriously. Reading a review about it and laughing at the sheer stupidity that is this book is one thing, but putting yourself thr ...more
My Experience: I started reading The Heartbreakers on 6/14/17 and finished it on 6/16/17. This book started out great! It had a great sense of humor. I laughed ...more
If you've ever fantasized that you were the girl who could capture the attention of a famous heartthrob because you're different from all the other girls who throw themselves at him... Well, then... you're in for a super fun ride!
Stella, Cara and Drew are triplets who really love each other. Cara has cancer and is very sick. She totally loves The Heartbreakers, currently the most famous boyband in the world. Their 18th birthda ...more
Stella, Drew and Cara are triplets who are close and they feel helpless because Cara isn't winning her battle with non Hodgkin lymphoma.
When Cara's favorite boy band "The Heartbreakers" were in town, Stella and Drew decided to get her a signed poster from the band. Stella ended up meeting the lead Singer Oliver on her Starbucks run and they didn't know each other so they flirted with each other.
It started a romance between Stella an ...more
The Heartbreakers was definitely a cutesy YA contemporary read. Like most others, there were fun times, and also sad, angsty moments, which I think are characteristic of YA contemporary novels. In this book we meet Stella, a triplet, whose sister, Cara, has stage IV cancer. To try and deal with her own emotions through this ordeal, Stella turns to photography, which manages to change her life s ...more
If you are looking for an interesting, yet extremely quirky book to make you laugh this summer, The Heartbreakers is for you. The plot is a little far fetched but, I was able to see past this and enjoy the fun that this book has to offer. The Heartbreakers has everything: a boy band, Starbucks, a cancer story and a brave main character who is full of sass.
The Heartbreakers is a slightly unrealistic book, which is probably why I enjoyed it! The plot is so unbelievab ...more
I can't give this book more than 3 stars because it's too ordinary, fanfiction-like, but I really enjoyed it.
There is a time when I want to read something like this to remind me of the time when I loved reading various fanfictions. This book is good. But I will always consider it a fanfiction. It is just so similar and yet I really liked it.
Full review to come.
First off, how Stella meets Oliver Perry twice within such a short span of time without actually trying is beyond me. I couldn't even find a celebrity if I tried. Let alone twice...and we won't even mention the fact that both times s ...more
This story was about a rock star, a band, and of course, a girl. But more than that this story went deeper. It was about families, and love, taking chances, and living life to the fullest, and loving those around us and being strong for those that need us to be without losing ourselves in the process.
It was about chasing our drea ...more
The Heartbreakers is a light contemporary romance read that could have a great potential. It was a great start but in the end the story was okay and it didn't give me the vibe whenever I'm reading a contemporary book. I don't mind cheesy lines and cliché stories. It may be a fast paced read but I feel like there is something missing.
The story is about Stella, a girl who has passion for photography. He ...more
P. S. Honestly, I will probably rate this book with 2,5 stars but it lighten my stressful day and made me smile.

Oh geez, you guys. This was just so sweet and cute. I'm actually a bit lost for words to be honest. I really adored this book, but still it didn't quite feel like a five star book and it's really bugging me because I have no idea why.
The Heartbreakers is about Stella. When she goes on a road trip with her brother Drew to get an autographed CD from the popular band The Heartbreakers for their sick twin sister Cara, Stella never imagined how much her ...more
I loved how snarky Stella was to the band from the get-go. Each band member had such a distinct personality, it was fun watching (reading?) them interact with one another.
There's Oliver: the smoldering heartthrob.
JJ: who'll flirt with anything female.
Xander: the shy, sweet one.
Alec: the mysterious, brooding guy.
Mix all that with Stella's "bottle rocket" nature and you have one helluva ride!

You guys. YOU GUYS. The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak is probably one of the cutest books I’ve read this summer. It’s got everything a girl could want in a contemporary: a girl who’s got passion, sibling love, and a boy band. Yep, you heard me: a boy band. So many things just clicked for me in The Heartbreakers, making it a fun, endearing read.
TRIPLETS FOR THE WIN
Y’all, this book has a wonderful trio: Stella, Cara, and Drew. The story is told in first person only from Stella’s perspective ...more
Cuuute and, in some ways, exactly what I needed, but definitely not that memorable. After waiting a couple weeks to write a review, I found I no longer had anything to say. But on the other hand, I wouldn't mind revisiting this story some day if I'm in the mood for some fluff.
