“I’m sorry,” he said, slowly untying the ribbon that held his mask in place. “It’s just…I didn’t want you to think of me any differently.”

Somehow I kept my mouth from falling open. I knew his face, but my mind couldn’t accept that he was the person looking down at me.

“My real name is Alec.”

Felicity has her entire future planned. Ever since her older sister ran away, she’s had the full weight of her mother’s expectations on her shoulders. So she works hard to get straight As and save for college.

Except sometimes the best things in life are unplanned—like when Felicity meets a handsome, masked stranger while she is volunteering at a charity masquerade ball. She never thought he’d flirt with her. And she certainly never thought he’d turn out to be a member of the world-famous band the Heartbreakers.

Then Felicity uncovers a shocking family secret. Suddenly, she, Alec, and her two best friends are off on a road trip to find Felicity’s missing sister. And she’s about to discover that unexpected turns have a peculiar way of landing her right where she needs to be…

Another Ali Novak book was a huge success for me! I loved Paper Hearts by Ali Novak. There’s just something about books with bandmates that I seriously adore. 

This time, we get to follow Alec from the Heartbreakers. He meets Felicity at a ball where everyone’s wearing masks, and he tries to fool her by saying that his name is Aaron. By the end of the night. she finds out who she really is, and she is completely stunned but seems okay with it anyway. 

Paper Hearts by Ali Novak was filled with swoon-worthy moments and super cute romance. I don’t want to say too much about it because I want you to go and experience it all for yourself.

I would say that you don’t have to read the first book in this series before reading this one because they do follow different characters, but if you have the time, definitely check them both out!

  1. I liked the Walter Boys, and have been wanting to read one of these books. From your review, I think it is just right for me (and they have it on Hoopla, so why not?)
