The Heartbreakers

25266817
I received this ARC at ALA 2015 in San Francisco, California from Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review. The release date for this book is August 4,2015. For more reviews/information on this book, please visit Goodreads.com.


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?

The cover is what first made me want to pick the book up and read it. I was at ALA 2015 in San Francisco and it was just sitting there. I did not pick the book out because of the couple but because of the cute doodles on the front. Books with doodles are always the best! Well readers, let's get to it! The book was magnificent. The book is about a set of triplets-Drew,Cara, and Stella- who have a lot going on in their lives. Cara is sick and is obsessed with the Heartbreakers. The Heartbreakers are basically like One Direction in this book. Stella and Drew HATE their music. Who knows where Cara got her music tastes.

So Stella and Drew decide to road trip to go get Cara signed merchandise by the band for her birthday gift. Stella meets a very cute boy at Starbucks and he even pays for her coffee! Swooning!!! So later, Drew and Stella are in line waiting to get their sister's stuff but the line gets cut off! Drew and Stella are basically fuming and when they go back to their hotel, their A.C is busted. Figures right? But the craziest thing happens, Stella bumps into the band in the elevator at the hotel. Guess who is among these handsome boys? The boy from Starbucks, wham-bam-thank-you-mam! This boy, is Oliver Perry a.k.a the lead singer of the Heartbreakers.

I loved the fact that this book revolved around the whole band and not just the main singer. Oliver Perry and Stella are a great match but they have their issues. What I'm trying to say is you will hate and love Oliver at times! This book is beyond amazing and I highly recommend it! It's so cheesy and adorable with twists here and there. I was beyond happy to learn that there is more than one book to this story. The story does not revolve around Cara having cancer but she definitely plays a large part. This is a great Young Adult book and it is a great romance. I rate this 5 stars out of 5 stars! I loved it. Happy reading!
