The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak

This was super fun. I seriously adore every member of the heartbreakers. Stella and Oliver are so adorable. This is the exact type of story people read as a feel good, light summer read. Super cute. (And I hope there's more of Stella and Oliver in la ...more

Well, it's not a cute romance like the blurb suggests. Sure, there's a bit of romance in the story, but that's not what this story is. This story is about grief and guilt and loss and judgement and forgiveness. It's about getting through each day whe ...more

Wow. Just wow. I will admit to having lackluster expectations. I'm not typically into the rich and famous chick magnet being reformed by the good girl--and, at its very basic form, that's what this is--but this book was so much more. SO MUCH MORE. Th ...more

So much fun!

I enjoyed this one a ton; it was exactly what I wanted it to be. Sweet, light-hearted, and just plain adorable, it brought a smile to my face. I think I loved how observant Harrison was the most--he paid attention to the tiny little thing

Felt too short

I enjoyed the story. I read it all in one sitting even. It took me just a few hours. I was excited to read Kenzie's story because I adored her in Bailey's book, and while I liked her a lot, she didn't feel as deep as most of her charac

I just don't know...

There were parts I liked, and parts I didn't. The 'romance' is quite a bit dysfunctional much of the time. There is very little lead in to it at all--no real reasons given or shown for her to love him back so quickly. This is not

Fun read!

3.5 stars. The first part of the book was great! I really enjoyed the time in school, and the tension of the under cover bodyguard thing. The next part of the book was a tiny bit of a disappointment as they went into hiding, but it ended wel

Loved it!

Wow. I would totally watch this as a movie. It had all the necessary elements of a fantastic romcom. The characters, the plot, the tension, the stakes... I loved every moment of it.

Super sweet

This was definitely the fun, sweet, adorable, and sometimes poignant story I was expecting. Ashlyn was a good character, but I didn't seem to connect with her a ton, but Luke was an amazing character. I like the second book in the series b

Nope

I don't even know where to begin. I wish I hadn't read it. I expected a cute romcom about a girl realizing she loved her best friend, but that was not this book. Not even close. (Spoilers below)
