I Heart series book 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?

Top Ten Things to Do in New York

1. Visit Bleecker Street
Bleecker Street is my favourite street in New York. There is nothing you can’t get here – dog clothes? Yep. Magnolia bakery filling-inducing cupcakes? You got it. Marc Jacobs branded joy? Yes. Second-hand bookshops? Go on then. Coffee shops? Lots. Snooty record shop workers? of course. Love it.

2. Drink too much hot chocolate at Max Brenner
Honestly, the stuff is like sludge. But how sludge would be in heaven.

3. Destroy your credit card at Bloomingdales
Lots of top brands under one iconic roof. Fab.

4. Cocktails at Little Branch
If you don’t see anything you fancy on the menu of this cool former-speakeasy, just tell the bartenders what you fancy and they’ll whip something up. Something delicious and strong enough to floor an elephant so maybe go easy.

5. See a band at the Bowery Ballroom
I love the Bowery. It’s small and dank enough for gigs to still feel intimate but old New York fancy enough to feel like you’re doing something special. Even if you’re not.

6. Have breakfast at Tiffany’s
It’s practically the law. Go and buy coffee and a danish and stand staring longingly into the windows. Plus it’s cheap which will ease the Bloomingdales induced pain on your credit card.

7. Go shopping in SoHo
Again, not good for the credit card but SoHo is full and brilliant little shops, from top designers to bargain basement retailers. Also, lots of opportunities for coffee stops and star spotting – both cheap and extremely good fun.

8. Take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry
Relive Working Girl and take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry for some brilliant views of Manhattan. And the best part is it’s FREE!

9. Spend an afternoon in MoMA
I love MoMA. There’s so much to see and it’s just such a serene place to be right in the centre of Midtown. Leave lots of time, if it’s busy you don’t want to feel rushed.

10. Hang out at the top of The Empire State Building
It might be a cheesy tourist thing but I still love the views from the top of the Empire State Building.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to read 23 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
On the night of her best friends wedding Angela finds out her Boyfriend has cheated on her but rather than stay and face the music she jumps on a plane to New York. Within a week she has a "job" and is dating 2 guys which turns complicated near the end of the book.

I like the character of Angela she seams a very head strong girl that on a whim takes off when everything goes wrong for her. She takes a chance and she ends up meeting some great new friends, getting a great new Job and dating an amazing guy near the end of the book. I love how the friendliness of New Yorkers like Jenny she was taken in under their wing, given a New York make over and shown the way However as much I loved the book I did think some parts where not realistic to real life such as a Hotel Receptionist being about to live in a apartment in Manhattan, going shopping everyday, getting a job within days of arriving and being able to live in New York when she wasn't earning alot from the blogging job.

I did like the fact the book was a page turner and I wanted to know/ find out what Angel would get up to from one day to another and I felt like it was well written as well. The characters where will written and had great personalities and stood out from each other and by the end of the book I wanted to learn more about each person. I also liked that the book didn't end on a clip hanger either in the epilogue you find out what guy she has been dating she choices...... 6 months later

2.0 out of 5 stars Predictable 22 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So when Angela runs away to New York after catching her fiancé cheating on her, never would I have imagined she would re-bound so quickly and so deeply. Sleeping with two guys, who are polar opposites of each other, ‘I Heart New York’ follows Angela trying to rediscover who she really is.

I was really surprised at how effortlessly Angela happily strung along two guys. It made me dislike this part of her character as she feels no remorse for her actions. Then, when she starts writing a blog for ‘The Look’ magazine about her antics, I could spot a mile off what the outcome would be. Despite their flaws, I did come to like Taylor and Alex, the unfortunates who Angela is seeing. True they are clichéd opposites, but I did enjoy reading how differently they wooed Angela.

The climax to the story was predictable and I felt like I was waiting for it to happen. But what did keep me guessing is what Angela eventually decides to do and it is not until the Epilogue that her fate is revealed. This helped revive the story for me and kept me interested, so I guess this is one of the strong things ‘I Heart New York’ has going for it.

This is a chick-flick book but I have definitely read better. There was so much scope the writer could have used with this scenario but once it is agreed that Angela’s blog would be published, it is very easy to spot her downfall. If I have the chance to read other books by Lindsey Kelk, I hope it is better than this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me... 11 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking to read something as part of a series, so thought I'd try the I Heart books. I Heart New York started okay, but I quickly got bored with it. Some of the events were unrealistic, so I didn't take the story too seriously. On the whole it felt like the main character was living out a daydream. Although this book was not for me, there were a few parts that I did enjoy. I think it would appeal more to woman in their twenties.

1.0 out of 5 stars Characters that are shallow to the extreme 9 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
Characters that are shallow to the extreme: These girls are all about finding a man/moaning about men, getting drunk and clothes shopping.

As much as the characters live in cloud-cuckoo-land, the story is not much more based in reality: A hotel receptionist who can afford to live in central Manhattan?!

Oh sorry, I forgot that the main character has a career as a journalist. Which rains down on her from heaven, just because she's written a few internet blog posts about New York and dating. Journalists in the real world: see where you go wrong? It's so easy to have a career!

Having said that, if you like the chick-lit genre and need a switch-off-your-brain beach read: at least it's easy to read and fast-paced enough to keep you going while sipping cocktails on the sun-lounger.
Ideally get hold of one of those free-with-Glamour-mag copies. Mine can be found in the recycling bin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and hard to put down! 3 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Searching `New York' in the Kindle section of Amazon UK, Lindsey's book was the first to appear. The cover immediately attracted me and on closer inspection, I recognised the author's name. I haven't ready anything of Lindsey's before but I'd seen her name on numerous occasions and had seen many good reviews for her work. Her book `Single Girl's To-Do List' is also on my to-read list so keep an eye out for that review.

`I Heart New York' follows Angela Clark, a twenty-six year old writer on the verge of marrying her childhood sweetheart. She catches said sweetheart having sex with his tennis partner at her best friend's wedding. Angela's life is turned upside down, she takes the first plane out of London and jets off to the one place she has always wanted to go - the Big Apple.

The storyline is fun, exciting and I love that it is jam-packed with fabulous fashion, make-up and jewellery references. It has that New York sparkle and it just makes me want to jump on a plane myself. I've read reviews which state certain parts of the storyline are a bit farfetched... but what story isn't? This story itself portrays the essence of New York; it's the city where dreams are made and Angela learns how to live hers. I really warmed to the characters and am glad that this is only the first book in the series. Next stop - Hollywood!
