I heart New York - by Lindsey Kelk


Original Cover
My own copy



















The blurb:

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, get ready for the summer debut of the year...When you're running away from a broken heart, there's only one place to go...Adjusting tiaras at the foot of the aisle, Angela and her best friend prepare for the wedding of the year. But events don't go as planned. And when a girl is in possession of a crumpled bridesmaid dress - and can't go home - New York (for the very first time) seems like an excellent idea. Angela's new friend Jenny Lopez gives Angela a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps, and a makeover. Who hasn't dreamed of starting afresh with a sassy New York wardrobe, a new haircut and a trip to the make-up counter? Before she knows it, the new Angela is getting over her broken heart by having dinner with two different boys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her fabulous new blog. But it's one thing telling readers all about your romantic dilemmas. It's another trying to figure them out for yourself! Warm, funny and unputdownable, I Heart New York is an unforgettable debut.

My Opinion:

I made the big mistake and read I heart Paris first. Please don’t ask me why, it just happened somehow. It spoilt the ending, but I still enjoyed every second of the book.

After being cheated on by her fiancĂ©, Angela decides to leave London and goes to New York. She has no clue what to do and how long she is staying, but she just has to get away. In her hotel she meets Jenny and they become friends. Jenny introduces Angela to her friends and she gets a new look and one of her friends can even get her a job at theLOOK.com. What an exciting and new change in Angela’s life and Lindsey described it in such an exciting and enjoyable way.

Angela is still heart broken, but she goes out there and meets new men. She has no problem doing that and pretty fast she’s got dates with two different men. Both of them are good-looking and interesting. There is Taylor, the sexy banker and Alex the gorgeous rock-star.
Well, I know whom she’s going to pick, but I am not telling you. Only one thing: am happy about her decision J.

Angela wasn’t feeling good about being with two men at the same time anyway and she had to write about it in her blog. So the drama was really intense and Angela was on a adventurous roller-coaster ride, with ups and downs. There was never a dull moment and I was so curious of what was going to happen next in the story.

Her future seemed unsure, with her job and also the men.
Well, we only hear in the epilogue what she decides, but I am really happy about it(well, I guess I knew from the beginning). This is great, because Lindsey keeps you guessing about the ending till the last pages and that for me is a really important thing and makes a story even more appealing. 

Such a romantic read, full of fun, New York details and dating!!! =) Can’t wait to start the next one :)
