Holed up in a cute hotel room, Angela gets a New York makeover from her NBFJenny and a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps. Before she knows it, Angela is dating two sexy guys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her new blog (Carrie Bradshaw eat your heart out). But it's one thing telling readers about your romantic dilemmas, it's another figuring them out for yourself …
Angela has fallen head over heels for the big apple, but does she heart New York more than home?
I love Lindey Kelk's books so much! They have just the right amount of humor, fun, and romance to make all chick lit lovers smile! In this book, I Heart New York, readers are taken on a journey with Angela as she runs away from her home town of London to start over after catching her fiance cheating at her best friends wedding. But, what should have been a time of crying an eating her way through Ben and Jerry's in order to get over said breakup, Angela finds herself living the life she always wanted. Two boys to date? Check. A new best friend? Check. A whole new wardrobe AND fabulous purse from Marc Jacobs? Double check. Follow Angela on her journey post breakup in this fantastic novel about starting over and living again. You won't regret it, I know I don't!
The heroine of this story (and series - it plays out through a number of books SQUEE) is Angela (as mentioned above) and is a girl that anyone could find themselves easily connected with. She is down to earth (albeit a little naive in the beginning) and a total sweetheart. Had she been a real person, I know I would wish her to be my own best friend.
The plot of the story is so much fun! It involves dating, and finding a lot of joy out of life when you didn't think there would be any. I absolutely adored being on the journey with Angela and can't wait to see where she goes next! If you haven't had the chance to visit New York city (I love that city!) you will FEEL like you are there with Angela. The author does a wonderful job describing the shops, the attractions, and all the delicious restaurants that make you drool all over yourself.
With that being said, this is a true CHICK LIT novel, and frankly, one of the best ones I have read in quite a while. Sure it was published in 2009, but it is worth the read even if you are one of those who only reads the newer releases. The good news is though that the sixth book in this series (I Heart Forever) is releasing this year! So I vow to read this entire series so I can get my hands on that one as soon as it releases!
Fans of chick lit novels and those who enjoy a fun, lighthearted read without all the drama will certainly love this book! I highly recommend it. And, I recommend many of the authors other novels including Always the Bridesmaid and We Were On a Break
PS: If you enjoy the Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella this would be the perfect series for you! It reminded me of Kinsella's novels without all the debt :D
PLEASE NOTE: THIS SERIES IS MEANT TO BE READ IN ORDER AND FOLLOWS THE SAME HEROINE THROUGHOUT.
THE 7TH BOOK IN THE I HEART SERIES IS COMING ... SEPTEMBER 7!!!
