My Q&A with a character from "The Heartbreakers" :

Character's Name : Oliver Perry
Character's Age : 18
Character's Appearance : Light-brown, wavy hair. Dark blue eyes. Tall, lean.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Sure. I was born in Portland, Oregon and raised by my grandparents. I’m the lead singer and songwriter for the Heartbreakers, and we’re currently getting ready to release our next studio album called Light Years Away. I started writing and making music with my best friend JJ in junior high, and we formed our first band called Infinity and Beyond freshman year of high school.

What is your favorite article of clothing?

You can’t go wrong with a good beanie, but I never take off my Grandpa’s dog tags—they’re very important to me.

What is your favorite book?

Hands down, "Moonraker" by Ian Fleming. It’s my favorite James Bond story.

What is your favorite food?

Pickle rollups. You can’t judge until you’ve tried one.

Do you have a favorite place to go and/or vacation spot?

I’ve toured all over the world and been to some pretty amazing places, but when I have time off, my favorite place to go is home. Nothing beats spending time with friends and family.

Is there anything that you ever regret for having done? If so, can you tell us about it?

Yeah. It’s still kinda hard for me to talk about, but this past year I turned my back on my bandmates. I was so worried about keeping our record label happy that I didn’t realize how unhappy my best friends were. I hurt my girlfriend, Stella, in the process too, and it took a while to gain everyone’s trust back.

What is one thing you wouldn't be caught dead doing?

Stella loves the The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. She tries to get me to watch it all the time, but yeah—that’s never going to happen.

What is one of the most romantic things you’ve done or have had done to you?

Okay, so Stella is obsessed with this famous photographer called Bianca Bridge. For our first date, I tracked down an art gallery that had an original Bianca Bridge print and took her there to see it. I also love cooking dinner for her, and I’ve written a song for her as well.

Have you ever gone out in public with your shirt on backwards, or your slippers on, and when realizing it, just said screw it?

Well, I’ve gone commando before. Does that count?

Do you have any summer plans that you'd like to share with us?

Mainly I’ll be busy with the rest of the band promoting Light Years Away, but any free time I have will be spent in New York with Stella. She goes to school there at SVA.



"The Heartbreakers"
[The Heartbreak Chronicles, Book 1] by Ali Novak

Author's Book Description :
    "When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music."

    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 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?

    Ali Novak wrote her debut novel "My Life with the Walter Boys" when she was just 15 years old, and has since penned her next book, "The Heartbreakers." First a hit on the online community Wattpad, her second novel has over 38 million reads and is loved by readers around the world.

My Book Review :
    4 out of 5 stars! Since freshman year of high school, Stella’s sister (Cara) has been battling cancer, now about four years later Cara’s battle has been getting harder. Therefore, to give Cara the “greatest 18th Birthday present EVER” Stella and their brother Drew attend The Heartbreakers (the “boy band” Cara loves) autograph signing to get Cara’s things signed by the band as the gift for her. However, the day of signing Stella’s life changes forever and her life gets more embroiled with The Heartbreakers with its leader singer Oliver than she ever expected…

    All portrayed through Stella’s POV, you get a great start to a very intriguing series and band! [READ MY FULL REVIEW & THREE TEASERS]

  3. Oh wow, um.... I think it depends on the type of music I'm listening to at the time! And if they have to play instruments or not. If not instruments, then I say New Kids On The Block. If instruments are necessary, then Aerosmith. :)
