3.0 out of 5 stars Samey but still a good read...
Angela, blog writer for a trendy NY magazine, heads off to LA to interview a hot shot Hollywood actor and gets slightly more hassle than she bargained for!
Alex, her man, stays back home working on his music and occasionally surfing the web for pap shots of his girlfriend in various compromising positions with the delightful James. All, however, is not quite as it...

Angela, blog writer for a trendy NY magazine, heads off to LA to interview a hot shot Hollywood actor and gets slightly more hassle than she bargained for!
Alex, her man, stays back home working on his music and occasionally surfing the web for pap shots of his girlfriend in various compromising positions with the delightful James. All, however, is not quite as it seems and the twist is pretty amusing...
Very basic writing is combined with a same old same old plot but for some reason, and it could be partly due to LK's witty one liners that are littered throughout, it's a good laugh and an easy to read 'stick it in your beach bag' novel. It won't stretch your grey matter to any extent whatsoever but there is something enjoyable about it's fluffiness! I may just have a look at the next in the series...

2.0 out of 5 stars I Heart Hollywood, 24 May 2010

(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: I Heart Hollywood (Paperback)
Angela Clark has barely been settled in New York for 6 months when her editor at The Look magazine tells her that she's being given a special assignment: she's off to La-La land to interview an actor hotter than Brad Pitt - James Jacobs. Angela duly takes up the challenge and sets off to LA with best friend Jenny, however when she gets there she finds that LA isn't as glamorous as she thought it would be and the only sane person there is James. Matters are made worse when Angela and James are snapped in an uncompromising position and Angela is suddenly thrust into the spotlight. Can Angela make her boyfriend believe there's truly nothing going on between herself and James?

I Heart Hollywood picks up two months after I Heart New York and starts, much like the first book, at a wedding. A chapter or two later and Angela is heading off to LA. The start to the book was hardly pacey and I thought I'd end up getting bored 60 pages in like it's predecessor. In a carbon copy of I Heart New York, Angela seems to have everything fall into her lap when she gets to LA, particularly when it comes to James Jacobs. They get along straight away which is believable enough, but the book then goes into "OMG so unbelievable" territory by making it seem as if James loves Angela (after she throws up and passes out on him, no less) and they end up being featured on gossip websites - Perez Hilton gets a mention! - which portray them as a new couple. Quelle surprise, Angela's boyfriend sees the snaps and all of a sudden, Angela's in a bit of a pickle. Again. Angela protests her innocence, but doesn't deny she wasn't thinking about it...

The worst thing about both books is the unbelievability factor. I love Becky Bloomwood's Shopaholic adventures because it manages to stay a bit true to real life but the I Heart books make it so difficult for me to imagine because it's as if they're happening in an alternate universe. There's a recession going on but Angela has no problem spending thousands of dollars on clothes... The book has no realism whatsoever. Also, there's a huge twist involving James Jacobs and his personality change after we learn his secret is rather astounding. I was truly gobsmacked at how quickly he changed, it was so unbelievable I could have laughed. Kelk's writing has improved a little bit, though, so I give her credit for that. Angela is no longer revered as a hero, thank God, which is another plus. Don't get me wrong I Heart Hollywood IS better than I Heart New York and I found myself enjoying it much more but if I don't like the principle character (she still calls men boys, by the way) there isn't too much hope for me to really love the book and get lost in it. Funny thing is, I will undoubtedly end up reading I Heart Paris... don't ask...

1.0 out of 5 stars really disappointed, 26 Feb 2012
This review is from: I Heart Hollywood (Paperback)
really disappointed in this book, very predictable and boring. Would say you'd enjoy it if you were 15/16 but otherwise i would avoid it totally. LOTS of mistakes within the novel (grammar,spelling etc) very obvious that the writer of these books has so little to do in her life that she replays everything in her books, albeit in a different city under a different name (she writes a column in Marie Claire UK which is god awful and quite simply her book simplified to a page) if you're looking for something similar to Shopaholic etc id recommend 'Rubbish Boyfriends' or 'Pear Shaped" by stella Newman which was totally fabulous, this book is far to repetitive (she repeats a story about breaking someones hand with a shoe maybe 30 times (no joke)).

2.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable!!!!, 23 Feb 2012
This review is from: I Heart Hollywood (Paperback)
I had never read a Lindsay Kelk book before but saw this copy in the library and thought i would give it go- she seems to have a lot of books published so thought it would be ok.
I was wrong! The book starts off quite well and is funny and entertaining! The middle is also good and the characters explore Hollywood and get up to mischief as a group of girls would. But about 2 thirds of the way through i just found the story line to become completely unrealistic, boring and very predictable. I ended up not caring really what happened to the main character and i skim read the rest of the book xxx

This book definitely gets 2 thumbs up from me - Ok so its only Jan but this is 100% the best book I have read all year. If you read I heart New York you will love this if you didnt buy them both now.

Chick lit at its best

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect escapism for the winter months, 8 Jan 2010
This review is from: I Heart Hollywood (Paperback)
A brilliant follow-up to I Heart New York. Lindsey Kelk transports the reader to the LA sunshine as our hapless heroine gets involved with a movie star who is not all he seems...

Witty writing with laugh out loud moments.

I'm very much looking forward to the next installment in the 'I Heart...' series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic follow up - does not dissapoint!, 7 Jan 2010

This review is from: I Heart Hollywood (Paperback)
I absolutely loved I Heart New York, and was so excited but a tiny bit aprehensive to read the follow up. Would it live up to the first one? How would Angela's love adventures survive outside the Big Apple? I shouldn't have worried for a second. Lindsey Kelk's sharp wit and brilliantly drawn characters meant I was hooked once again from the first page, and as seduced by the leading men as Angela is! Read it on your commute, on your holiday, or just as the perfect pick me up for cold winter nights. Just read it - you won't regret it. How long till Paris??

This review is from: I Heart Hollywood (Paperback)
I did wonder if the author, Lindsey Kelk could come up with something as good as I heart New York and in fact she has done better. This is a great read, highly recommended. Now can't wait for the next in the series. Fab chick-lit and between us I sooooooooooooooo want to be Angela.
