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?


We can watch your favorite movie?

I nodded my head. A movie was an acceptably easy activity. Okay, but nothing scary. I hate horror movies.

Oliver laughed. Yeah, I totally pegged you as a chick flick type of girl.

Oh really?I asked raising an eyebrow.

“Yeah,” he said and scooted closer to me I bet I can name your top three movies.

“Lets hear it then,I said and crossed my arms over my chest.

First, The Notebook. Every girl loves The Notebook. It’s a no-brainer.Oliver confidently stretched and draped his arm around my shoulder.

All right, next,I said without letting him know if he was right.

Next, Titanic because Jack represents the kind of guy that every girl wants.

Whys that?

Because he shows that if you truly love someone, youll do anything for them. I mean he knows he cant have a relationship with Rose, yet he never stops fighting for her and eventually dies for her. Not to mention that hes played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Got the hots for Leo?I teased and poked him on the chest.

“Hes a bit old for me.

All right,I said with a laugh. Final movie.

Definitely something Disney,Oliver said stroking his chin. Girls love Disney. Im guessing Cinderella.”

Oh yeah?Oliver was wrong on all accounts, but his explanations were funny.

Because you girls like that prince charming, knight in shining armor crap,he said and shook his, dismissing it as nonsense.

I see,I told him and hide a smile.

So, how did I do?He perked up in his seat and waiting to hear that he got all there right.

“I’ve never seen The Notebook. The Goonies is my all-time favorite.

Oliver frowned for a second, before he replaced it with a certain smile. Okay, so I got two out of three, right?

My second favorite is Interview With a Vampire. Brad Pitt is way hotter than Leo, and besides, hes a real vampire. None of that sparkly ----.

Surprisingly, Oliver didn’t seem upset when I told him he guessed another movie wrong. Instead, he perked up when I said ‘Brad Pittand ‘hot.

So who’s your celebrity crush?he asked, changing the subject.

My forehead wrinkled up as I contemplated the question. It was hard, because there were so many good-looking guys. “Ohhh!” I finally said, getting excited. Joe Manganiello. Two words: Mus-cles! He played a totally sexy werewolf on True Blood.

What?Oliver said putting a hand to his heart. A werewolf? How about your friendly, teenage heartthrob?

If you are referring to yourself, then no,I said and choked back a snort.

Fine, whatever,he said and crossed his arms. What’s the last movie?

Well, if I have to pick a Disney movie I’ll go with Hercules. Oh, or Mulan. Shes badass,” I said.

Oliver shook his head. “Geez, I dont stand a chance with you, do I?

Why do you say that?

Well, your ideal man is a vampire werewolf hybrid whos as swift as the coursing river and mysterious as the dark side of the moon.

I giggled. “And the son of Zeus,I added, but I supposed Oliver deserved some kind of credit for being able to quote Mulan.

He ran a hand through his hair. And here I thought being in a band counted for something…”
