To my surprise, I really liked this book! I usually read the complex, action-packed books, that have 500 pages. And yes, The Heartbreakers is definitely not a thrilling or complicated story. So, I will admit there were many cringe worthy cheesy moments. And it was all very predictable. Another flaw was the narrator. I liked her, but a lot of the characters sounded the same. However, the book made me smile all the way through! By the end, you'll be wishing Oliver was your boyfriend! I loved how the story focused on each character and Cara's cancer, while telling a love story! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick, funny, sweet book that will make you happy for hours!

What did you love best about The Heartbreakers?
The Heartbreakers was a novel about coming to age and letting go of the fears that prevented the main character Stella from moving forward. I loved that Stella allowed herself the chance to experience life in a way she didn't allow herself to do because of her family. This book was such a sweet YA romance and I loved that it was something I could easily immerse myself in without a lot of heavy feelings making me depressed while listening.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The ending was such a sweet moment and one that I was happy to see. I'm very glad it ended the way it did.
Have you listened to any of Arielle DeLisle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to any of Arielle's other performances, but if this book is any indication of her style I would love to listen to more books she has narrated. I loved the performance. It was what made the book even more enjoyable to me (I own the actual book and loved reading it).
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The book made me laugh and smile at the boys antics. It also made me a bit sad. Thankfully the sad parts were never really dark so there was no depression while listening to this book.
Any additional comments?
Ali Novak is a young author. From the few novels she has written you can tell that her targeted audience is YA. Despite not being a YA myself, I still enjoyed the lightness of this book. It is definitely not an in depth novel, but that's what I liked about it. It was exactly what I needed at this time.
