Book review: I Heart New York - Lindsey Kelk (I Heart #1)

 

Get ready to meet Angela Clark as she flees the world’s worst wedding for a new life…

It's official. Angela Clarke is in love – with the most fabulous city in the world.

Fleeing her cheating boyfriend and clutching little more than a crumpled bridesmaid dress, a pair of Louboutins and her passport, Angela jumps on a plane, destination - NYC.


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?



My opinion.
To say expectations were set high for this one would be a terrible understatement. I heard only fabulous things about Lindsey's books and I Heart New York is at the top of a lot of "favourites" lists.
And just like I expected, from the very first chapters it was pretty obvious why.
Angela is a brilliant main character. It's so easy to relate to her - even though I've never been near New York and I've never had a break up THAT bad (thank god). First thing I want to do after finishing this book is shopping... a lot, and booking a trip to New York City. If you're looking for a reason to go, this is it! Lindsey sure knows how to sell a city! Lindsey Kelk's writing is amazingly funny, flirty, catchy,... I'm  having a hard time writing this review because this book was just SO much fun and I'm running out of ideas how to express that!
Although I was team T. for the bigger part of the story, I'm extremely happy with how the story turned out. I can't wait for the next book in the I Heart -series!
