Summary: 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?



Review: I was genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed it. When I first heard of this book, I didn't realize it was a Wattpad book until I saw the cover. I was really surprised that it was and I can see why it was published. 

Stella, an aspiring photographer, despise The Heartbreakers. She thinks their songs sucks but her sick twin sister, whom she care deeply for, is a big fan of the band, so Stella and her brother decides to surprise her by getting an autograph CD for her birthday. However, Stella begins to fall for the lead singer Oliver Perry before she knew who he was.

To be fair, the book was kind of cliché, there was insta-love. However, I thought it was very well done. Besides it being about the growing romance between the two loverbird, there was a strong sense of family and friendship mixed into it as well which I very much appreciated.

Overall, I thought that it was one the best cliché books that I have ever read. It was predictable, but it still made me want to read more and the development with the novel was amazing.


My Rating: 4/5
