I Heart Paris - by Lindsey Kelk

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Angela is in the city of love -- but romance is taking a nose-dive! When Angela Clark's boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance. But even as she's falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone's conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tete-a-tete with his ex in a local bar, Angela's dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her. With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can't decide if should stay and face the music or run away home!

My Opinion:

Before I read this book, I knew that there is an „I heart series“, but somehow I wasn’t aware of the order, so I just started with this one, because it was in my mother’s book shelf. I immediately loved it!!!

Alex and Angela seemed perfect for each other from the start and for a while during the book I got really scared, that they won’t make it…

Angela seems to have the perfect life: great friends, a gorgeous, sexy and rock-star boyfriend and a great job at with her blog.

Alex really wants her to move in with him, but she’s unsure about it. Then he invites her to Paris, because his band has a gig there. Even better: Angela can combine it with her job and even write for Belle.

When Angela arrives in Paris, she is told, that her suitcase had to be deystroyed. Everything was in there ...
That bit seemed a bit unrealistic to me, but …

Not even Alex can cheer her up and he isn’t there half the time anyway, because of things he has to do with the band. Angela meets Virginie from Belle, who is going to assist her.

It was amazing to read about Paris, I spent some days there last April, so I could picture all the places.

In the evenings she goes out with Alex and his band mates and there she meets a pretty French girl, who turns out to know Alex really well. Oh, I sensed trouble there.
I didn’t approve of her behaviour at parties and with alcohol and that’s when I got a little annoyed with Angela.

After that everything turns into some big drama, including this girl, and both Angela’s and Alex’s behaviour and opinions. Also Virgine and some other add up to this drama and suddenly everything seems to be really bad. I loved the drama going on and it added a nice touch to the story.

Both Angela and Alex make some sudden decision and they way he acts to resolve everything is so adorable and sweet. Real love ♥ ♥ 

Angela’s best friend Louisa also made the story special and I was glad Angela had someone to talk to in Paris.

After reading this incredible story I instantly had to download all the other books of the series. I love Angela, her way of living, her personality, everything (except for that one thing)!! And Alex, wow, I mean I don’t have to say a thing, you’ll understand ;)
Amazing story, great writer, couldn’t put the book down!!! Lindsey’s writing is fun, vivid and full of surprises.


My possible cast:

Angela: Rachel McAdams

Alex: Drew Fuller

Jenny: Katie Melua

Louisa: Taylor Swift

Erin: Sara Paxton

Mary: Meryl Streep

Virgine: Kristin Cavallari
