Book Review: I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk

I Heart New York
Author:  Lindsey Kelk

Let me get the so called crap out of the way first.  I Heart New York is predictable, things fall into place perfectly for our heroine (blah) which brings me to my last gripe, it’s unrealistic.

Okay now on to why I liked it regardless of the things I mentioned above.  The truth sometimes your just in the mood for a clichĂ© chicklit that makes you sigh and wish that life worked that way. 
It’s escapism, and one of the reasons why I love reading. 

Our main protagonist Angela catches her fiancĂ© cheating on her with a tramp, and on a whim hops on a plane to New York.  Mind you she knows no one in NYC, but what the hell I’m game I’ll go along for the ride, which I did, smiling all the way.  While in NYC she befriends Jenny Lopez (I’m still, I’m still jenny from the block..) who works at the hotel Angela is staying at.  Jenny becomes her savior, and helps her with shelter, food, and some much needed advice.  Angela goes from 0 to 60 in her dating life, again not realistic who find their partner cheating and immediately jumps back in the game finding not one but two great guys quickly..very quickly.  Gotta love fiction.

I enjoyed I Heart New York because it’s miles away from what real life is especially after a break up.  I enjoyed Angela and even Jenny (from the block).  If you are into realism then you probably won’t like I Heart New York, if you are just in the mood for a feel good story then I Heart New York will work.


  1. I like these kinds of books too. I have this book, just waiting to read it!

  2. This sounds like a real "cute" book. Sometimes I just like reading cute fun books.
    I don't mind my books being predictable, and I like happy endings!
    I am also from upstate NY and been to the city many times. Thanks for the review!
