I’m currently working my way through the “I Heart” series, and have already posted a review about the first book I Heart New York here.

So, the second book brought out the same emotions as the first; it made me jealous, it made me cringe (for the main character Angela, nothing to do with the actual book!), it made me smile and even nervous for Angela at some points! For some reason it took me a while to get into the book. This might be because I’ve been quite busy recently with work, college and just life in general whereas when I bought the first book I had a few days of doing nothing so I finished it relatively quickly. However, once I sat down and actually had some time on my hands I actually finished the book even quicker than I had with the first. I found that in this book, there was much more going on, and I felt more compelled to finish it.
Even though Angela has a crazy, accident prone but fashionable lifestyle, she is still so relatable and is the “girl next door” kind of character. For some reason, I tend to get butterflies for fictional characters, is it just me on this one?! Anyway, when Angela meets a man in the story, I was feeling nervous and excited FOR her. It’s not often I feel involved with a character and get emotional about a story, so I think it’s such a great quality for a book to have. Kudos to Lindsey Kelk!
There’s also a unique factor to the book, like there is with each in the series, they all have a guide to the city where the book is set! This includes bars, restaurants and places that you must visit. If there was a negative point to this, it would be that it’s making me want to travel these place even more! 🙁
I would recommend the book strongly, it’s a great book for when you want to relax and put your feet up. Prepare to get jealous though girlies! Have any of you read it? What did you think?
P.s. I’m not usually like this but I had a bit of a fangirl moment when Lindsey replied to me on Twitter (three times!) about the review!
