I Heart Hollywood by Lindsey Kelk - Review

I'm not going to lie to any of you, I don't remember buying this book and I don't remember who gave it to me but can I say THANKS if it was you?!  I'm a little bit late to post today but I've been spending time with my niece and well, she trumps you.. #SorryNotSorry

"I heart Hollywood" is the second in the I Heart series and by my previous paragraph, you'll realise I didn't buy this book so I didn't read the first one however the author, Lindsey Kelk, manages to keep you in the loop by referring to the previous novel and it sounds like it was hilarious. 

Here is Amazon's synopsis:

Celebs, sunshine and beautiful boys…enough to lead a girl astray?
Angela Clark can’t believe her luck… she’s an English girl living in New York with a dream job at hip magazine The Look and a sexy boyfriend.
Her latest assignment takes her to Hollywood to interview hot actor and fellow Brit James Jacobs.Thrown in at the deep end she heads west with best friend Jenny dreaming of Rodeo Drive and Malibu beach.
Soon Angela discovers that celebrity life in Hollywood is not all glamour, gloss and sunshine. Despite his lady-killer reputation, the only person who seems genuine is James.
Then a paparazzi snaps them in an uncompromising position and suddenly Angela is thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons…
Can she convince all those close to her – especially her boss and her boyfriend – not to believe everything they read? And will Hollywood ever win Angela’s heart? 

I gave a quick review on goodreads which can be seen below but I wanted to add to it by saying I really enjoyed this book. While I liked Angela, I can't say I identified with her from my point of view although, she definitely reminded of my bff, A. As Angela made one decision after the next I could see A doing the same thing which is hilarious because none of the things Angela did was totally out there... 

This was an easy book once you got into the first 30 or 40 pages. I often thought Angela was a typical female in doubting herself and the ones around her. 

I Heart Hollywood (I Heart, #2)I Heart Hollywood by Lindsey Kelk
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Good chick-lit. Some surprising twists with a dash of "OMG" moments. Angela pulls you in and you can't help but root for her to succeed.
