Format: Paperback
I thought I loved I Heart New York, but I'm pretty sure I loved this sequel even more! It was fast paced, equally, if not more hilarious and I couldn't put this fabulous chick lit book down.

Angela Clark is back and when her new career at The Look magazine sends her to interview fellow Brit James Jacobs, she finds herself in Hollywood amidst the thin, beautiful women of LA as well as in the company of James, whose photo is plastered among the gossip magazines with a new woman on his arm each night. She soon finds Hollywood isn't all it seems and when an uncompromising picture throws her into the spotlight, she could loose everything - her job, her best friend and most of all her boyfriend. Can she convince them not to believe everything they read?

This novel takes place in just over a week and it speeds along, including a twist I wasn't expecting. It was laugh out loud funny and I couldn't help but giggle frequently at Angela's antics. She's dishevelled, a bit ditzy, and fully flawed, but completely loveable. And it's not just her character I loved, but all of them. Kelk's characters are so fully formed and distinct that I felt as if I knew each one, even though the novel is written from Angela's perspective, and I couldn't wait to see what they would do next.

This is a fabulous, must read summer series for chick lit lovers and I can't WAIT for I Heart Paris due out later this year. This book could stand alone without have to read the first novel, but why deny yourself the pleasure! Pick up these books today!

After reading the first book I Heart New York, I had to see what would happen next. It's a fun light read and excellent entertainment. I thoroughly enjoy this series!

Didn't love this! April 21 2011
By Leah Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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...
An okay second installment, but not enough to make me want to read more in the series. Dec 31 2014

For an extended review of this book and more, please visit http://fortheloveoftheread.blogspot.com

This is the second in the "I Heart" series by this author. This book is a UK import as she is published in the UK and not in the US.

Even though this is a second installment, it is not necessary for the first to be read before this one is. It may enhance the reading experience, but the author does enough of a recap in this second book to cover all necessary bases.

My largest disappointment with this book was actually the character of Jenny Lopez, which is surprising because she seems to be a fan favorite and was a great character in the first novel. She is Angela's best friend, but I thought she was the worst character in the book. She was extremely temperamental with everyone, especially Angela, and she came across as being quite selfish. Angela and Jenny have many confrontations throughout the book, and each time I found myself getting more and more frustrated with Jenny. I also can't understand why Angela puts up with Jenny. I found the entire friendship frustrating and I don't understand why they are friends.

That being said, the other characters in the book are great. Angela is a bit of an airhead and makes some bad choices, but she is lovable anyway. She is funny and humble and endearing, despite the fact that there were many times when I just wanted to shake her. Her boyfriend, Alex, is less developed in this novel, which is one reason why reading the first would enhance this one. I could see why she cares for him, but I don't think his charm came through as well in this one. The Hollywood star of the novel, James Jacobs, spends most of the book seeming just that little bit too good to be true. In the end, he is shown to be human like the rest of us, which I really appreciated.

I enjoyed reading about the different hot spots in LA and the experiences Angela had. There was a bit too much partying and drinking for my taste, but that's only a personal preference. Overall I thought the book was pretty cute. I just hope that, throughout the series, Jenny's character will get some redeeming qualities.
Love me some Angela Clark!! April 19 2011

I HEART HOLLYWOOD, by Lindsey Kelk, is the continuation of Angela's new life in New York City as a magazine blogger. With her new rocker boyfriend, Alex, and BFF Jenny Lopez at her side, anything is possible for this English girl. Her dreams seem to come true when she is asked to interview the hottest celeb in Hollywood. Complications arise (as always it seems to around Angela) and hilarity ensues in this sequel to I Heart New York.

Angela Clark stole my heart again! Her ridiculous antics and utter clumsiness kept me cracking up the whole time. She is definitely a great chick-lit character and I could really see a girl like her getting along in the real world. I loved the continuation of the relationship with Alex. These two encountered big bumps in their relationship and I was eager to see how it turned out. As much as I loved Jenny in the last book, I found myself getting annoyed with her. When she got to LA and met up with an old friend she kinda turned into a royal brat. Not very good friend material in my opinion.

I absolutely fell in love with James Jacob. James and Angela shared their home country and friendly banter that turned into a bit of flirtation. HOT flirtation I might add. I was torn between liking Alex or James and who was a better match for Angela when Kelk swooped in and thwaked me in the head with an insane revelation that turned the whole book upside down. I did not see it coming but it amped up the plot intensely and I loved it.

Fans of I Heart New York will love this book and I am excited to read the next one, I Heart Paris.
I Heart This Series Oct. 1 2011
By Literary Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I Heart Hollywood is the second book in the I Heart series by Lindsey Kelk. Angela Clark is back and she's still living in the United States, writing for a hip magazine, and debating whether to move in with her sexy new boyfriend. Her latest work assignment is interviewing fellow Brit and actor James Jacobs...in Hollywood. All is fun and glamorous until paparazzi snaps compromising photos of Angela and James Jacobs. The gossip spreads and threatens her job, reputation and relationship.

I really liked Angela's independent attitude and guts in the first book, I Heart New York. But she loses this burst of "I Am Woman" in this book. She seems helpless and clueless. I enjoyed reading more about her best friend Jenny, who is healing from heartbreak and discovering a potential new career. Hopefully Angela just had a temporary mental setback and will be back to normal. As Jenny says, "You're my best friend. You do stupid stuff. I sort it out. This is our thing, it's the thing that we do."

Lindsey Kelk's pop culture and smooth writing style make for easy, light reading. I love when a book takes me to different places in the world like New York, London, Hollywood, Vegas, and Paris. It's fun to read Angela's perception of the different cities. It's safe to say I am sticking with this series and can't wait to read the next two.

Love this series! March 17 2013
By Jennifer W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'll admit that I've read this series out of order, so most of the plot was spoiled for me in a later book. Is I Heart Hollywood as good as I Heart New York? Not quite, but it's still a hilarious and entertaining read!

I noticed some reviewers criticized the novel for how the characters seem different from the first book. For one, I appreciate how the characters change and evolve as the story progresses. With everything that happened in the first book, it would be seriously unlikely for Angela to remain exactly the same. But that self-doubting mess-up Angela is there, and so is that strong, competent Angela. These characters are not one dimensional, which is a rarity in the chick-lit genre.

I love Lindsey Kelk's writing because it's real and honest, and I look forward to reading more from this author!
