And, while I loved the I heart books, I loved What a Girl Wants and the prequel About a Girl even more. This is mostly due to the Tess & Nick's chemistry which crackles off the page. I found myself smiling like a goon as I was reading and there are a few choice phrases which I will definitely be trotting out in future.
I really hope this isn't the last we've heard from these characters.
My only niggling point was, having read the first book, the recaps can be a bit annoying and you're thinking 'yes, yes, I know all this, what happens next?' But I understand why this has to happen for the book to work as a standalone read.
So, if you're going to do it, do it right and read About a Girl first then What a Girl Wants.
In the first book I noticed some similarities between me and Tess but the more I read about her, the more I realise I'm like her. Any one who knows me will tell you I have this inability to make a decision. What if I make the wrong choice could it affect everything? Tess spends a lot of time trying to make some tough decisions in this book and Amy does tell her off for being a coward. She knows what she really wants but she's just too scared in case it all goes wrong.
At the end of book one Charlie finally got his act together and told Tess wanted to give them a shot in a pretty ineloquent way. Tess had been in love with him for the last ten years but while she was in Hawaii something changed. He's a dependable dimwit. He's the guy that can be your best friend but nothing more. He's the guy your mum want's you to be with because he'll always do the right thing but there's just no spark there.
Nick is back. This boy is everything you want but shouldn't. That Ben and Jerry's you know you shouldn't eat but do anyway. Tess has been trying to get hold of him since she got back from Hawaii.Read more ›
The story starts more or less from where About A Girl ended (review here) with Tess in a bit of a pickle about what she’s going to do with herself. Stay at home and start up her own advertising company with gorgeous best friend Charlie, or hop on a plane to Milan and turn her photography hobby into something more.
I absolutely fell in love with Tess and her story in the first book. I feel like we’re best friends and while I was reading her story I felt like she was more or less talking directly to me such as Lindsey’s writing allows you to feel. I love how funny her character is, how dry and witty her sense of humour is and how it feels so much like mine making it appeal to me all the more. This style of writing carries on into What a Girl Wants and you can pick up being best friends with Tess as seamlessly as the story starts.
The last book was left on a bit of a cliff hanger as far as Tess’s love life is concerned. On one hand there is arrogant, cocky, annoying, arseholey journalist Nick who Tess met in Hawaii and on the other hand there is gorgeous loveable Charlie, Tess’s best friend of ten years. My personal favourite is Nick. I was so attracted to his Daniel Craig looks and his cocky, “I’m always right”, sexy attitude. I also really loved how
unashamedly attracted Tess was too him – sort of lived vicariously through her…into the bedroom! Anyway!Read more ›
