This book is great. I started this book this morning and could not put it down till I finished it. The book has a power of putting a spell on you. Once you pick it up the spell is done and you cant put it down until you finish it. I love this book. The characters are so sweet, kind, funny, and you instantly fall in love with them. I recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and just great story in general. -CandyLover101

I just finished the first four characters on Watt pad and really want to read more, but if it is as good as her other books, I'm sure it will have me crying one moment, then laughing my butt off the next.

I was ready to give this one up as a wasted purchase, but had read the excerpt in another book and HAD to know what happened between Stella and Oliver. Long story short, I cried during some of it. The characters were all so real and relatable, with such well written personalities, that I felt like I could picture myself being friends with them. The subplot of Caras diagnosis was heart wrenching and those scenes were some of the most emotionally charged to read.

Having a love of boy bands myself, I was really excited about this book. It sounded right up my alley. The fact that on the first page there's a Kirkus Reviews quote that says, “...Fans of boy bands will be on this like tattoos on Harry Styles's chest,” made my directioner heart sing, “Yesssss.” It was very fan fic-y at first, which isn't really a bad thing, just a slightly obvious thing at some points I thought. I was glad Stella and Oliver met in Starbucks first and made a genuine connection as people, though. Of course, everyone saw it coming that this mysterious boy she met was clearly going to be the Oliver. I resented Stella a smidge in the beginning, especially at the signing. Seriously, you're going to stand in line and knock the boys you're about to suck up to and ask a favor for in a minute? As someone who has stood in line to meet celebrities myself, it kind of pissed me off. The whole first day they met was kind of frustrating. It was a bit predictable and I wanted to yell at Stella for acting like such a snob. After that, I felt it transitioned really quickly from her family back to the Heartbreakers. There's not a lot with her family, and I feel like it would have been nice to get the little in-between bits. Not just with her family, either. The Heartbreakers has a good story line, but it's like it only highlights the major plot points, and basically completely skips over the rest. I truly think it could have been a few books, but they wanted to mash it into one. It's really choppy, and I feel like her relationship with Oliver sort of comes out of the blue. Not that we weren't expecting it, but I wish there was a bigger buildup. I have one more complaint, which is that Stella did not arrange for The Heartbreaks to meet Cara. Like, what the heck? That's totally, completely unfair. Cara is obsessed with them, Stella didn't even like them, but she's the one spending all the time with them. I understand they're busy, and it's a very nice thing Stella and Drew did for Cara, but if I were in Cara's shoes, I'd be hoping for a little something more than some signed merch. On the good side, I like reading about the boy band world. I love all the drama and excitement, but then that they're still mostly normal guys. I like the incorporation of Stella's choices and passion and confusion about her photography and her life. I love that she has a support system in the three boys who mostly act like her brothers, and the one who's interested in her. All the members of The Heartbreakers are completely loveable. This book kept me turning the pages, and the ending was pretty marvelous. I'm anxious for the rest of the series. If you're into more serious reading, I'd look for another book. If you're into fantasizing and fan-girling, though, I'd definitely give this book a shot.

This is one of my favorite books ever! So interesting. It definitely hooks you in from the first moment you start reading. If you like this book then you should definitely read the Backstage Pass series or the book Map to the Stars!

I want to thank Sourcebooks Fire for providing me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book fro free has in no way altered my opinion or review. I love how this book starts out: girl meets boy, there's a connection, and then she believes she will never see him again. Imagine Stella's surprise when it turns out he's the lead singer in her sister's favorite band. Of course she has no interest in him, she's only wants the band's autograph for her sister who has cancer. She wants to do this one thing for her. But then things seem to tumble out of control and she suddenly finds herself falling for him. I like Stella's character a lot. She's confident and no bones. When she's hired to be the band's photographer, she's all about the job. Oliver just wants to be another face in the crowd. But that's hard when you're one of the most recognizable guys in a famous band. So when Stella has no idea who he is, he can't help but feel a pull to him. And as he slowly includes her in the band's antics, they form a friendship and bond. I like the friendship that Oliver and Stella form in this book. They do things together to get to know each other so there's more than just the attraction piece. And I like how the other band members kind of include Stella in things. She's part of their pranks and their discussions, it's kind of sweet how they pretty much make her an honorary member of the band. I can definitely see the other band members getting their own stories. And the chemistry between Oliver and Stella is easy to see. The writing in this book flows easily. I would definitely check out other titles by this author. And the theme of family and friendship is perfect. It's light hearted and loving. This story was sweet and cute. If you enjoyed any of Entangled's Backstage Pass books, then you will enjoy Stella and Oliver's story.

The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak was a story about finding yourself. Stella's life had revolved around her sister, Cara's, sickness. While she really does want to be there for her sister because she blames herself for the cancer not being caught earlier, she also has used it as a crutch to hide behind when it comes to getting her life started. Meeting Oliver changes everything. Suddenly, she's presented with an opportunity that's too good to pass up. Once she's on the road with The Heartbreakers, they all become very close. I enjoyed the friendships that developed between Stella and all the band members as much as I enjoyed the romance. They all had some growing up to do, and they helped each other along the way. We should all be so lucky to have this kind of support system. The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak was kindly provided to me by the publisher for review. The opinions are my own.
