I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Angela Clark has it all: freelance writing career, loving parents, close female best friend and highschool sweetheart/fiance. That is until she catches said fiance in the arms of another woman at best friend's wedding. And it's not a one time thing. After an impressive throwdown/tantrum she packs a bag and gets on the earliest flight to New York. Not knowing where to go or what to do she checks into the first hotel she sees where the desk clerk takes pity on her and befriends her.
Things are all shiny and new from there, she gets to see the city which never sleep with her new best friend, meets not one but two gorgeous guys - one a wall street banker, the other a slightly damaged rock singer and she lands a very sex and the city style gig writing a blog for an online New York magazine.
While this book lacks realism in terms of how often does this type of thing actually happens, it's a great piece of literary escapism. The writing is fluid and makes you forget just how unrealistic the plot is, it's heartwrench, heartwarming and has it's moments of humour added in for good measure and two hot male leads. It's a great book for what it is - guilty pleasure chick-lit.
