I Heart Forever By Lindsey Kelk

I Heart Forever‘I Heart Forever’ is the seventh book in Lindsey Kelk’s ‘I Heart’ series.

The day her husband Alex picks up a backpack and goes travelling, Angela Clark promises to stay out of trouble and keep both Louboutins on the ground. So when her best friend’s boyfriend confides in her, it can’t hurt to help him pick out a ring at Tiffany’s surely? And when her fashion magazine announces major changes, being terminally late and winking at your new boss in the lift isn’t that bad, is it? Then suddenly there’s another big secret Angela’s got to keep – and the man she loves is still thousands of miles away. As the wedding of the year looms, and Manhattan switches on its Christmas lights, Angela is going to need her friends by her side as her old life looks set to change forever.

Our favourite New York editor is back with a bang in the latest instalment of Lindsey Kelk’s fun series, ‘I Heart Forever’.

As per usual our outspoken and sassy lady is involved in much chaos and drama, some that was her own doing and others that are completely out of her control.

Angela is left to mind the fort whilst Alex goes off travelling for two months, whilst he’s enjoying life in a backpack, Angela has to deal with the impending changes at Spencer Media, now that the reigns have been handed over and Joe Herman steps in, a handsome, money driven man that wants to make huge changes to the magazines, much to Angela’s dismay. As Angela battles with life alone and defending the security of her employees jobs as well as her own. Her attention is occasionally distracted by her friend, Jenny’s upcoming wedding which has to big and better than anyone else’s.

There’s rarely a quiet moment in Angela’s life and it seems that it’s all changing rapidly and out of her control without Alex around to support her.

I loved this book, I thoroughly guffawed my way from start to finish, from Angela’s thoughts to outbursts, she was her usual entertaining self. I’ve recently come to the conclusion, that Angela Clarke is my favourite heroine in a book series. She genuinely makes me laugh and wish that she was my best friend.

I don’t want to go into too much detail about the story as I could I easily reveal one significant storyline, but there is plenty of drama and humour to keep her fans and new readers engaged.

There were certain aspects of the story, that I found particularly interesting such as the interactions with Joe and Eva, a successful YouTube star. As the world of digital and social media is currently changing, I found their scenes useful and informative.

Filled with warmth and fabulous characters from the amazingly direct Angela, her reluctant assistant Cici as well as best friend Jenny, there is a rarely a dull or quiet moment in this fast paced tale. Although, I do wonder, occasionally from the tone of the story, if this is the last that we will hear from Angela, I sincerely hope not!

Fun from the very beginning, ‘I Heart Forever’ is another delicious rollercoaster of a book from Lindsey, riddled with drama, innuendos and handsome musicians, Angela is most definitely back with a bang!

You can pre-order I Heart Forever from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 7th September 2017.

A Girl’s Best Friend By Lindsey Kelk

A Girl's Best Friend’A Girl’s Best Friend’ is the latest book by Lindsey Kelk.

Is it diamonds – or is it Amy? First Tess was a girl with a plan.Then she was a girl with a dream. Now she’s a girl who’s come back to earth with a bump. When the opportunity arises to join her best friend, Amy, in New York for Christmas, Tess jumps at the chance. The only fly in ointment is that Nick, the man who broke her heart, lives there. And Charlie, the man she turned down, has just started talking to her again. And she has just four days to take a photo for a competition that could save her career. But aside from that, everything is going to be great: it’ll be the best Christmas ever. Won’t it

Our favourite budding photographer is back and this time, Tess is having her latest adventure in New York. As Christmas lures closer, Tess is unimpressed and unhappy with spending Christmas alone and eating her mother’s horrible brussel sprouts. So, when Tess’s best friend Amy, invites her to New York for a Christmas vacation, Tess throws caution to the wind and packs her camera bag for the bright lights of the cosmopolitan city. But just as Tess becomes accustomed to the cold weather and the New York way of life, she sees Nick, the man who broke her heart and the man she still loves. Hoping to distract herself from heartbreak, Tess decides to embark on a photographic competition and spends her time trying to find the perfect photograph opportunity as well as prepare for the wedding of the decade as her good friends, Domenico and Kekipi tie the knot.

The story begins in the present moment, as everyone prepares for the big wedding day, and then disaster strikes causing the story to go back in time, to two and half weeks ago, when Tess was a lot less happier and confident version of herself, as she assisted a bratty photographer and regularly thought about the one who got way. Rescue, comes in the shape of scatty and outspoken Amy who persuades Tess to come to New York and help her get ready for the return of Al Bennett and his first fashion range in a long while. With Amy’s mad antic’s, New York’s majestic skyline, Tess just about manages to get her life in order, that is until she catches a glimpse of Nick and once again, her heart breaks.

In Lindsey’s signature style, the story flows in a quick fashion, with witty narrative, dialogue and entertaining scenarios that do make for enjoyable reading. Since, the very start of this series, I have loved the characters, particularly Tess, she’s quiet with a big heart who regularly finds herself in awkward situations and she’s really a girl that I find myself relating to. Her friend, Amy with her eccentricity adds an injection of humour and wit to the tale, whilst quietly spoken and caring Al provides a wise figure in the modern romance.

Filled with sass, humour, a few old faces as well as some sexy men, ‘A Girl’s Best Friend’ is another smart and laugh out loud story from Lindsey and just like her previous offerings, leaves the reader begging for more.

You can buy A Girl’s Best Friend from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

Top Five Movies To Watch With Your Bestie By Lindsey Kelk

Lindsey KelkToday on the book tour for Lindsey Kelk’s brand new book, ‘A Girl’s Best Friend’, Lindsey tells us what her top five films are to watch your best friend. Have you seen them all?

A Netflix binge is a magical thing for best friends. It’s a rite of passage we’ve been working on since we were kids and out mothers left us alone with The Little Mermaid, a box of Jaffa Cakes and two cartons of Ribena because quite frankly, she needed a break. Here are my favourite movies to watch with my friends.

An American Tail
My little immigrant! This is a Thanksgiving tradition for me and my friends in America, as well as an any day tradition for me and one of my UK besties. If your cockles aren’t warmed by the story of Fievel Mouskawitz and his family as they emigrate to New York then you have no soul and we can’t be friends. No, I’m not hyperbolizing, I love this movie.

The Covenant
Please go and google this movie immediately, I’ll wait right here. Done? OK then. A short synopsis would be a make version of The Craft, starring a pre-fame Taylor Kitsch, Sebastian Stan and Chace Crawford. A more accurate description would be a truly terrible movie about male witches with shockingly bad dialogue and plot holes big enough to swallow up the world. It fails the Bechdel test and it fails the ‘how did this get made?’ test but it did and it’s schlocky and awful and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Don’t ask too much questions, just have a drink, get your besties round, turn out the lights and stop thinking. OOOH, WITCHY.
A Girl's Best Friend

Beauty and The Beast
This really could be replaced with any Disney movie (except for Frozen, I just don’t get it) as a blanket-on-the-sofa-hot-chocolate-Sunday-singalong movie option but there’s something about Belle’s spunky story and that lecherous candelabra that makes me happy. Yes, Belle, there must be more than this provincial life, there must be.

Thelma and Louise
Cool chicks, Brad Pitt and a true tale of sisterhood. Plus it opens up all those fun conversations of ‘if I accidentally killed a man, would you go on the run with me?’ and that never goes badly.

Trainwreck
It’s a new entry but it’s one I feel good about. I loved this new take on the romcom from Amy Schumer. It was the first movie in a long time that felt as though it was telling the truth about modern women and the ways we choose to live our lives, not to mention the crippling commitmentphobia so many of us suffer; freaking out, it’s not just for dudes!
