Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Dear BSB Fans:

You know him as B-Rok of the BACKSTREET BOYS. I know him as G.B., a special nickname shared only between the two of us until NOW. If you want to get closer to The BACKSTREET BOYS here is your chance.

My name is Samantha Stonebraker. I am the first love and high school sweetheart of Brian Littrell. I was by the BACKSTREET BOYS' side from the beginning when they were just about to catch their shooting star. I was there as the Boys' career blossomed. From their record deal, to touring across Europe, I was there to witness five small-town boys become international superstars.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to date one of the BACKSTREET BOYS? Are there questions out there you've always wanted to know the truth about? After the lights go down, what are The BACKSTREET BOYS really like? I have the secrets you're interested in: the insight, the exclusive stories, and never seen before photos of Brian and The BACKSTREET BOYS.

If you're looking for the hottest secrets about The BACKSTREET BOYS, WHAT YOU WANNA KNOW is the book for you. Have fun with it, and enjoy!

Smiles,
Samantha

Well, where do i begin? At first I was against this book until I talked with the author. Samantha is not out to tarnish the image of the Backstreet Boys, actually she gives them all the credit they deserve in this book! It does not tell every detail of her relationship with Brian Littrell, but simply some interesting things that happened while she traveled with the band and dated Brian. The only details given about her relationship with Brian is some of the cute, sweet things he did for her like calling and singing on her answering machine. Yes, Samantha does talk about some of the faults that the Backstreet Boys have, and we should expect this because they are normal human beings like YOU! Everyone makes mistakes! This book does not tell anything about the Backstreet Boys that wouldn't happen to normal people, for example, she wrote about an argument that Brian and Kevin had one night. No, the details of the argument were not given, but it was only said that it was pretty heated. Samantha makes sure to have the reader think about his/her life by asking questions that would relate to the actions of the Backstreet Boys. For example, she writes, "Imagine getting four of your friends and spending every second together. Do you think you would ever fight? Probably-but you would have a good time too, wouldn't you?."(pg46) Any faults described in this book are backed up by the fact that everyone has these exact faults and NO ONE IS PERFECT! In writing this, Samantha shows the fans of the Backstreet Boys that they are human beings just like each and everyone of us! They shouldn't be viewed as these pop stars on pedastals above everyone else because they aren't!Read more ›

I think this book gives readers a real and warm look at the BSBS. I don't understand why anyone would feel this is a tell all. She does a amazing job with the virgin question! Thank you Sam! She made me want to date each of them more than I already do! Thin book made me think that I could date them and that they are normal and some sweet guys. I feel anyone writing a bad review has not read the whole book. I've been taking a pole on my web site of readers that have read the book and out of 1000 readers there were only 2 that said that they didn't like it. I'm still not sure if they read it.Telling the fans how wonderful each of the boys sre is not bad. Samantha anyone that doesn't buy this book is missing out on some fun reading and some great advice from a girl who knows!

I recently finished reading this book, and found it absolutely great! I learned a lot of cute things about Brian and the rest of the BSB and their families. I recomend this book to anyone who is a mature enough fan to realize that the BSB are human, and aren't perfect. For those of you trying to get "dirt" on the guys, this is not the book for you. The author of this book is not the type of women who is going to give out personal information that goes beyond the limits of intruding into other's lives. She has every right to share her feelings and stories that she has from when she was involved with Brian. I abosulety loved the pictures that were in the book, and I want to thank Sam for writing this! It has given me a different perspective on the guys (specifically Brian) that I love so much. Im glad I was mature enough to realize that he isnt perfect, and he has made some awful mistakes in life, like any other person on earth. Thanks for reading my review, now go out and buy this awesome book!

I love this book and do not understand why anyone would not love it. I found this to be the best book I've read about the BSBS. I found out that AJ was shy at one time and blew away his school one time when he preformed. I found out that howie is the most romantic guy. I found how Nick is just awsome! I found out that Kevin is has perfect as he looks. I found out that Brian is as wonderful and cute has i had hoped. Why would anyone not like this book? It shows they are real normal boys but for the most part as wonderful as i could imagine them to be.I thank youSamantha for writing this book. I loved the advice you have in this book. I will enjoy the dance of life more after reading this book!

When I first heard about Brian Littrell's ex-girlfriend writing a book, I didn't know what to think about it. I was sure that it was going to be some stupid thing which this girl only wanted to make money with. But since I'm a really curious person (LOL) I eventually bought it. And now I was really surprised. Actually this is a real good book and what I really appreciated not a tell-all story at all. And besides it's not only about the relationship of Brian and Samantha, but also you find out a lot of interesting facts about the other Backstreet Boys. Also Sam is a very good writer which makes the whole thing even better. So, I really recommend everybody to read this book. It's really worth it! :)

I love the book! I wasn't sure at first about the book. I was worried what a ex-girlfriend would say! Then I heard more about Samantha! I read the book! I'm happy I did I could not put it down.I think this book makes the Backstreet boys seem real and wonderful! This book makes me feel like they deserve the fame that they have gotten. I loved the pictures! I also love how she wrote the the BIG question that so many of us wanted to know, but also didn't want to know. You go Samantha!
