I read some reviews, some good, some bad and finally decided to give it a read myself. I read a lot of books set in New York — I wish people would set their books in other American states, there are 50 of them after all! I Heart New York failed miserably. Nothing of major importance happens in the book to set up an exciting and readable ending and I found myself fed up after odd pages. My next problem with the book is just how easily everything slipped into place for Angela.
I thought that the opening two chapters were hilarious, but it all seemingly went down hill from there. She spent the first day in tears after the break up but after that she was fine.
I Heart New York (I Heart, #1) by Lindsey Kelk
It was very peculiar. Another thing that irritated me about Angela was the fact that she was dating two guys — and blogging about it — but when one of the guys told her he was dating people other than her, she went completely off on one. My favourite character was Jenny, whom Angela befriends during her first hour in New York. She was a fantastic character and I absolutely loved her.
Of the two men Angela dates, Tyler and Alex, Alex was my favourite. All of the characters, bar Jenny, though were all one-dimensional and quite cliched though: For me, though, the book tried too hard to be in the mould of a Sophie Kinsella novel.
It tried to be funny, it tried to make Angela a likeable heroine but for me it failed on all accounts. This did not and I found it a hugely disappointing read.

After screaming at him she discovers that he has been seeing this girl for months, and that her best friend and her new husband have been playing doubles tennis with them! Storming back into the wedding she screams at the bride, and fractures th Angela is 26 and maid of honor at her best friend's wedding, when, dressed in a horrible coffee-coloured fish-tail bridesmaid dress, and clutching a pair of Louboutins in her hand, she finds her fiance having sex with another girl in the back of their car.
Storming back into the wedding she screams at the bride, and fractures the grooms comforting hand with said beautiful shoes, before heading up to her room to cry into her pillow all night.
The next morning she decides that she's had enough. She doesn't want to think about moving out of their house, she doesn't want to divide the cd collection, she's wants a break, so grabbing her passport and laptop she catches the first available flight to an english-speaking country, and arrives in Checking herself into a hotel she realises what a horrible mistake she's made - this isn't being strong, this is running away, and she resolves to catch the first flight back home.
Then Jenny arrives at her door - the hotel concierge, who having heard Angels's story has bought her some comfort food in the shape of chocolate cookies, hot chocolate and sugary cereal. The next day Jenny takes her under her wing and Angela gets a fab new hairdo, a fab new make-over, and an expensive and stylish new wardrobe, before they hit the town for the night.
Thus begins the start of something new and wonderful for Angela - she meets two great men who she falls in love with instantly, gets a job writting an online blog for a fashion magazine, moves in with Jenny, and buys the most beautiful bag she's ever seen. The only thing is, is she ever going to go home? As time moves on Angela falls more and more in love with New York, but knows that she will have to make some decisions soon - Which man does she want to stick with - the wall street banker, or the rock star?
This book is a really fun, girly read, and certainly something to pack in your suitcase if you're going on holiday! Dieters and chocoholics beware though - you may find the description of chocolate cookies, hot chocolate, chocolate truffles and chocolate cheesecake a little hard to resist!
Great chick-lit read.

Two boys to date? A new best friend? 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! The author does a wonderful job describing the shops, the attractions, and all the delicious restaurants that make you drool all over yourself.
Sure it was published in , 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.

Dec 16, Sophie Narey Bookreview- aholic rated it really liked it Shelves: Lindsey Kelk Recommended for: This is the first book that appears in the series where we meet the character of Angela Clark who is funny, relatable, very likeable.
In this book Angela moves to New York after she flee's from her wedding, where she meet her new best friend Jenny Lopez who is the girl you wish was your best friend! This book is incredibly well written I love the writing style, the way she can draw the reader into the book and make it feel like the characters are real and that it is actually happening.
The descriptions of the characters make them feel very life like and adds a great depth to the book. The description of New York really does just make you want to take off on a planen and go there straight away!
I also love the added bit at the back of the book of great places to go in New York which makes it not only an amazing book but also a great little travel guide! This is definately a must read for fans of chick lit novels. Jul 18, Lydia Laceby rated it it was amazing Shelves: Originally Reviewed at Novel Escapes What fabulous and fun chick lit!

She had wasn't too ditzy, she had aspirations and I felt her love for the city shine through, along with her confusion about how she ended up there in the first place.
I loved the descriptions of the city which made me want to pick up and move there myself. May 19, Catriona rated it really liked it. This was a really nice light hearted story. It was very enjoyable - slightly predictable, but all round sweet.
I was rooting for Alex from the very beginning. What can I say? I'm also a sucker for a boy in a band, with skinny jeans and messy hair. I think I'll need to read I Heart Paris during the summer: May 24, Kim rated it liked it. Fun chick lit, read while I was in NY as it is set there. It's a good story, a definite page turner. I have liked it enough to purchase the next book in the series. Dec 04, Chloe rated it it was amazing.
I Heart New York
So she does what any self-respecting woman would do — flees… not just the wedding, but the country as well!
Angela ends up in New York City with no friends, no money and no job. Angela also lands her dream job of being a writer — it seems everything is going right for her at last. But despite blogging her romance ups and downs, can Angela figure out which man is right for her? Does she heart NYC more than home? I heard about this book quite a while before I got to actually read a copy, so by the time my library had it in for me, I was quite excited to finally read it and see if it lived up to the hype.
I hoped this book would bring back some memories for me, and it definitely did that! The book opens with a hilarious scene, and I hoped this was a sign of the rest of the book to come as well. Luckily for us, this is pretty much all we see of the awful Mark, so thank goodness for that.
Yes, meeting Jenny and becoming best friends really quickly is unlikely, and yes, meeting 2 gorgeous men and dating both straight away is also unlikely, but it makes for great reading! It made Angela feel normal, and the unlikeliness of the situation yet normality of the lead character made it that bit funnier for me. For anyone who has been to New York City, this book will definitely reignite some memories for you.
Kelk writes in great detail about the glorious lights of Times Square, the breath-taking views atop the Empire State Building and the bitter cold as well! In terms of location research, Kelk has clearly done hers meaning its a great read for both visitors and non-visitors of NYC, although it will make you want to go back there! If you like your chick-lit fun, readable and funny, then definitely pick up a copy of I Heart New York! With a great cast of characters, a great location and a brilliant if idealistic!
A full 5 stars from me, a really great book. Jun 12, Anne rated it it was ok. Lindsey Kelk's 'I Heart New York' is being marketed at Sophie Kinsella fans and yes there are similarities, however,whilst Sophie often makes me laugh out loud - this book had me sighing in annoyance in many places. Dumped girlfriend takes the first plane to anywhere - ends up in New York City - meets lots of lovely, fashionable and rich people and immediately turns into a beautiful, succesful woman herself.
The plot is quite improbable - very far-fetched but very easy to read. Ideal for passing Lindsey Kelk's 'I Heart New York' is being marketed at Sophie Kinsella fans and yes there are similarities, however,whilst Sophie often makes me laugh out loud - this book had me sighing in annoyance in many places.
Ideal for passing a few hours whilst laying by the pool with a glass of something cool - or as I was this weekend, laying on the sofa fighting off the flu! Apparantly this is the first of a series with I Heart Hollywood and I Heart Paris following at 6 month intervals - Lindsey Kelk will find many fans I'm sure - but I dont think I'll be bothering with the next in the series. Locali alla moda, shopping e ragazzi sono questi gli ingredienti giusti per ripartire.
Come destreggiarsi? E soprattutto come agire ora che Angela gestisce un blog seguitissimo nel quale racconta le sue esperienze nella grande mela? E se avessi davvero dimenticato la piastra accesa? Angela semplicemente si fida di quanti le sono attorno e prova a ricominciare inventando una nuova se stessa, trovando forza dal suo dolore.
Un romanzo che suscita simpatie sin dalla prima pagina, un modo per riflettere in maniera ironica sul tradimento. Nov 10, Cavort rated it it was ok. I was delighted to win this book in one of the Goodreads' giveaways. That is until my spouse lost the book envelope in a pile of bills to be filed. Thus, until I got around to filing, my least favorite thing besides dishes I couldn't recall where the heck I had put the book after I got it.
Imagine my delight to find, in the middle of endless sheets of monotony disguised as bills and other important documents, a new book to read. The delight lasted until I started reading. The whole clueless wo I was delighted to win this book in one of the Goodreads' giveaways. The whole clueless woman escapist fiction genre annoys me.
The idea that we must find ourselves through excessive spending on products that cost enough to feed villages in Africa for months makes me rue consumerism and the "Cult of Stuff" through which we are supposed to make meaning in our supposedly otherwise uninspiring lives.
So, when Angela jumped plane from England to NYC escapist fiction literally and started engaging in advertising for overpriced products through drooling descriptions of leather and fabric, I almost stopped reading.
One could argue that any book is advertising for the author's philosophy of life and view of the world, but do I need product placement to go along with the ideas?
Still, I got the book for free and really felt like I should stick it out so I could whine about the whole consumerist-clueless female thing with some detail.
The problem is that part of the way through the book I found myself starting to enjoy some of the moments. Not all of them, and I really disliked how men were used as props and stereotypes, but there were some decent moments of humor that I could relate to after living in NYC for six years.
Now, were those moments memorable enough so that I can recall them and type them here? Was the book worth looking through again so I can pull up those moments to find specific examples to support my claim that the book was worth two stars?
Not at all. Actually, I'd give it a 1. Would I suggest that anyone else read this book? Probably not. However, I do think there is some potential here if the author stops bowing to the cliche gods and starts exploiting some of her humor in more powerful ways. Feb 06, Gina rated it really liked it.
I especially loved how I got an image of New York just by reading this and made me want to step on the first plane to the Big Apple and just wing it like Angela did.
Just wing it and hope I'll get somewhere, meet new people and get opportunities handed over as if it's a tissue. Man if life were that simple, it'd be great. I finished this fairly quick because it's so fast paced and easy to read, fun, witty yet a little bit irritating at some point because Angela keeps on juggling between two men, eventhough she's made up her mind about who she's into more. That point, however, is really the only issue I have with this story.
It's a good choice of a book when you don't know what you're in the mood for or when you're sinking into a slump. Angela is a good character, Jenny Lopez srsly tho was that necessary is a great character, Alex is my favourite character and now I'm going to stop using the word "character".
