What was even more frustrating is that the book has no ending!

At the end of the book things are vague, which is all fine and dandy but the I've never been so annoyed at a book. At the end of the book things are vague, which is all fine and dandy but the author has the nerve to basically say "if you want to find out what happens with the main dilemma of this book buy my next one. I'm gonna have to stick with Sophie Kinsella novels from now on. View all 3 comments.
Couldn't even get past chapter 1. I have enjoyed Lindsey Kelk's books in the past, but I feel her formula is getting old. Each of her books feature immature heroines who get fed up with life, fly to another part of the world, screw their lives up royally, and eventually "get the guy. Come up with something NEW! But, I could have looked past the recycled plot if the writing were actually good.

Which, it is not. I tried, I honestly did, to enjoy it. Alas, I could not. I was bored to t Couldn't even get past chapter 1. I was bored to tears, and couldn't even manage to finish chapter one. I didn't care about what happened to the main character I already forget her name , but lost interest around the time she tried to smash the HR rep's coffee mug.
This display of childish rage may have worked the first time in I Heart New York cue the smashing hand with a spike heel scene. I did not like it, however, when she reused it in I Heart London. I think Ms. But, she needs to come up with some original ideas, rather than recycling and repackaging the same thing over and over. View 2 comments. This book was terrible.
It's a shame because I liked the idea but how it was written was just It's slow for a start, taking over pages to get into her actually going to this trip and by this point, I already hate the main character aswell as all the other characters, so I don't give two shits on what's going on anyway. The plane could crash and I wouldn't a give a fuck.

She's annoying, whiny, dramatic I what If I worked at her job, I'd fire her ass too. I hate her. Tess Brookes, ugh give me a break. She's been in love with her best friend aswell for 10 years and she kisses him and after that, he's like 'my place or yours? After that, he's a douche and we find out he's also fucking her roommate who's probably the only character I like because she's sassy.
Oh boo hoo. You're the one who just flushed ten years down the bog because you couldn't not sleep with him because he's oh so dreamy riiiiiight. I didn't like him either. She gets pissed that he's sleeping with her roommate, but really? They're not dating, her and Charlie, so it's not like he's cheating. I don't care anyway because I don't like any of them. Her best friend's sister named her kids Bella and Katniss It just didn't fit into the book. I still wouldn't mind calling my own kid Katniss Maybe because it was just in this book and I hated everything but yeah, it felt out of place.
There was also a part I wanted to point out. She got "mugged" as in a guy sat next to her and was like 'i want your phone and wallet' and she said she didn't have a phone or anything and he said - no joke - "I have a spare iPhone, do you need to use it? Here, have it I have lots" then leaves her alone this book is set in London, UK. Can I assure you that this won't happen in London. I know, I'm british and the mugger won't be like 'I'm terribly sorry to disturb you' NO If she's been "mugged" like that then she just got lucky.
All the language and references to british culture and slang made me feel like she was writing this for an American and that she's trying to prove she's british. We get it. You're british.
Move on. Nobody in England says 'Bloody' that much. This book made me ashamed to be british sometimes I didn't even finish.

Maybe for silly reasons but I jus lost my patience with it. There's so many other books that I have that I want to read and this was wasting my time. She finally tells her best friend Charlie that she's been in love with him for forever and at first it all seems very well and exactly how she wanted it to, but then everything kind of gets out of hand.
Also, she loses the job she's been doing basically her entire life, instead of getting her long-awaited promotion. When her awful flatmate Vanessa leaves for a few days, Tess accidentally answers her phone and takes on one of Vanessa's 'About a Girl' is about a girl hah-hah called Tess Brookes. When her awful flatmate Vanessa leaves for a few days, Tess accidentally answers her phone and takes on one of Vanessa's photography jobs.
In Hawaii. Even though she is not a professional photographer. But as Tess' own life isn't exactly looking that positive at the moment, she just takes the chance and goes with it. What's the worst that could happen anyways..? I did like the book, but I am positive that this is not my favourite Lindsey Kelk book so far.
The story was nice, the idea was nice. But there was still something missing. It was maybe just too much stupid drinking and too much shagging the gorgeous, hot, new guy, even though one is so in love with the boring guy back home. I don't know. We all know that Lindsey Kelk's heroines all have massive drinking problems, but it's starting to really, really annoy the hell out of me. Do you really need to drink yourself senseless and as result throw up several times in one night? Virtually every night? Even though there are super important things to be done the next day?
One time Tess says: 'In all of my days, I'd never been a good drinker. Oh I know! Because you're a very polite British person.

That's why you cannot say no to a drink. That was one of her explanations. But anyways, back to the rest of the book. I quite liked the story in general, but I guess it was just not cute enough or something to compensate the things I didn't like. It's not that I hated it or something, but neither did I love it. I will definitely pick up the other two books in this series, but I'm not dying to do so in the next three seconds. Apr 12, Melinda rated it it was ok Shelves: Tess is a young woman experiencing turbulence in her rigid life, something unfamiliar to this bright eyed lass.
She has a plan, a perfectionist, likes to be in control. When her life spins out of her comfort zone she steps out of her contained box and lives on the edge, well the edge for Tess that is. Tess is likable, a bit immature for a 28 year old. She discovers much about herself as she lets go Tess is a young woman experiencing turbulence in her rigid life, something unfamiliar to this bright eyed lass. She discovers much about herself as she lets go for the first time. No such thing as accidents as Tess learns through her many tests.
The book is funny, a cast of differing characters, great for a beach read, or in my case a way to escape. The predicaments and questions Tess dealt with, most females will find themselves relating to in some way. My one huge criticism, far too many f-bombs for my liking, way overused, deterring from its intended impact. Also predictability was high throughout the entire story, characters actions, scenarios.

Cliffhanger ending, which I hate, nothing worse than being nudged to purchase the next book to have resolution. I wish I was better at writing reviews as I don't know how to write a good enough review to do this book justice! I absolutely loved it. I think I enjoyed it more than any of the 'I Heart' books and I think Lindsey Kelk may now be my favourite chick lit author. This was probably the most readable book I have read this year, if that's the right word to use. It was just a joy to read from start to finish and I did not want it to end.
Kelk certainly has a way with words. Some of the descriptions us I wish I was better at writing reviews as I don't know how to write a good enough review to do this book justice!
