About the Author
Lindsey Kelk is a writer and a former children's book editor.

She loves living in New York but misses Sherbert Fountains, London and drinking Gin & Elderflower cocktails with her friends. Not necessarily in that order. She is the author of five I Heart novels and one standalone, The Single Girl's To-Do List, and all of her novels have been bestsellers.

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.
The characters in this book are extremely likeable and Lindsey Kelk has a way of drawing you in as a reader (in fact I stayed up until about 5 in the morning to finish it, even though I had work early the next day), I just didn't want to put it down.
I love this book so much I have purchased the whole series (including this one because I know for a fact I'd love to read it again in the proper order of the series this time) for my kindle.
I'd recommend this book if you are a young female adult and looking for a funny and light 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!
After Angela has settled-in comfortably in New York city, with a job(that does not require her to report to work on a 8 to 5 basis), a cool band boyfriend who totally adores her, and a buddy who will pick her up whenever she falls, a chance of a million fell on her lap when a Hollywood star invited her to "interview" him in the stars concentrated city of Hollywood.
Work is never without play when her new best friend, Jenny, decided to join her in her adventure. Typical of Angela, she got herself into countless out of this world scenarios / adventures.
Truly a good book to laugh your heads off, shed some tears, and relax over a sunny relaxing weekend by the beach. :D
