Without purpose in life, she didn't know who she was anymore and what she wanted to do with her life. I hate how Nick is hardly in this book. Never end, Will it ever end? Because I am never able to do so. When she tells him she just wants to be friends, he hires his roommate Tank, a fast-talking, amoral scoundrel who has a side business: men whose women have dumped them hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the date from Hell, to drive the women back into their old boyfriends' arms. It doesn't really work as a stand alone novel. I love Lindsey Kelk's writing style.
Another great romantic comedy read by Lindsey Kelk; I'm really starting to think this woman will never be able to disappoint me with her novels! And Tess hasn't spoken to either of the potential love interests from the previous novels, Charlie and Nick, in months either. I'm not a prude but sometimes it seems like they can't have fun without getting hammered. Who are all these people and how do they relate to Brooke? The story follows the lead character Tess as she visits her best friend Amy in New York over Christmastime and tries to get over a guy who broke her heart all while trying to salvage her new found career as a photographer. Tess is lucky to have not only a best friend she can count on all the time but also a few other friends which have her back in time needed. I ended gifting the un-open movie to my brother for Xmas.
It's written by: Beverly Ross and Sam Bobrick. Because not only are all the great characters from the previous books back, with the action having moved to New York there is the most insane collision of awesomeness when Tess meets Angela, Jenny Lopez and even Delia and Cici Spencer. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I may have grown out of liking Lindsey Kelk's story writing and her very similar 'escape to New York' plots. The film reaches it's climax in a hysterical montage of Tank utilizing his tactics at a wedding, where he goes way over the top with unacceptable and raunchy behavior. And that's where the whirlwind of events begin, including the final verdict on whether Tess is TeamCharlie or TeamNick.
Definitely an unforgettable summer beach read, or snuggle-under-blanket-while-it's-cold-outside read, whichever part of the world you're living in. Kelk fans rejoice - when Tess goes to New York, she meets Angela and Jenny from I Heart fame. I loved both About A Girl and What A Girl Wants, the first two books of this series and if you have read my reviews oft hem, you know why I am excited. I find Kelk to be an incredibly lazy author anyway who reuses the same storyline all the time, but I have come to accept that. But still, a not so stellar Lindsey Kelk is still better than a lot of the chicklits out there and I'm looking forward to her next books.
My best friend's girlfriend She used to be mine My best friend's girlfriend Yeah yeah My best friend's girlfriend Said she used to be mine My best friend's girlfriend Oh, yeah yeah yeah My best friend's girlfriend She used to be mine My best friend's girlfriend My best friend's girlfriend. What's the deal with all the chick-lit books having a clumsy, not the brightest pea in the pod girl with curly untameable hair for the main character? For three books now, her fabulous life and ability to take a risk have kept me hooked, and A Girl's Best Friend was simply amazing. I loved the characters from the Girl and I Heart series meeting up and it felt like a huge party that I was invited to. With one shot gone it could still be a good movie if there was real character development or real wit, but there is precious little of either. Lindsey;s novels are the perfect remedy for the current miserable London weather and the miserable Londoners that result from that. Not only to full understand the backstory of I bloody love Lindsey Kelk, you guys! Sometimes they become protective enough to kill whoever hurt you and then you know that he truly is your best friend.
When the opportunity arises to join her best friend, Amy, in New York for Christmas, Tess jumps at the chance. We are still with the lovely Tess and let me tell you one thing: She is just so much fun to follow around!!! But when she is suddenly given a great chance to prove just what she can do and the love of her life makes a surprise appearance, the stakes are suddenly pretty high and Tess realises this trip might be more life-changing than she originally expected it to be. While this could potentially be read as a stand-alone, I recommend reading the books in the right order. But it hurts and you stay silent. He shares an apartment with his step cousin Dustin who has fallen for his colleague Alexis. Lyrics The way she walks, The way she talks How long can I pretend Oh I can't help I'm in love With the girl of my best friend Her lovely hair, Her skin so fair I could go on and never end Oh, I can't help I'm in love With the girl of my best friend I want to tell her How I love her so And hold her in my arms, but then What if she got real mad and told him so I could never face either one again The way they kiss Their happiness Will my ache-in' ever end Or will I always be in love With the girl of my best friend? Alexis and her room mate are the highlight of this movie.
The book is well written and hilarious. And yeah I cant wait to visit New York. It was so fun reading about those characters again and I especially enjoyed seeing Angela through Tess' eyes. I have no idea if this is the last book for Tess, it was wrapped up very nicely, but I would love more Tess. It sounds like a pretty miserable starting point for a story and it certainly isn't fun to see this lovely character down in the dumps, but when Tess decides to book a last-minute trip to New York to visit Amy and spend Christmas in one of the most magical city in the world, everything turns around. However I guess this crossover does mean that to completely enjoy this book it's best if you have read all the I Heart novels as I have. Tank and Alexis's first date and her sisters wedding are the best part's of the whole movie.
I like Charlie and Tess so The prologue is enough in this book for me to know I'm going to love this book, I've loved this set of three books in general. He finds her and jogs with her for a few miles, in the attempt to make amends, but Alexis is unmoved. She walks up to him and throws wine in his face, ruining his date. To view it, The book was a nice and easy read, although I have to admit, that I've read better books written by Lindsey. To me, it's the funniest movie I've seen in a long time.
It took me less then a week to get through 3 books and I really enjoyed this one. Throughout the evening Tank inevitably behaves in the most moronic fashion causing the girl to realize that her ex was not really such a bad guy after all and get back to their ex. Every girl deserves an Amy in their life. This was not a good back. Cook and Hudson are hilarious. If I have to hear someone deciding whether to do photography or advertising I will die I tell ya. Plus her characters are, albeit stereotypical city girls, mean girls, gay best friends and broody love interests , uber colorful and comically flawed in their own idiosyncrasies.
Why do women always go for the jerk guys who don't give a crap about them and chase them and can't stand the nice guys. Because I am never able to do so. But, like I said, I also think Amy needs a book. It did eventually calm down but I felt as though I had somehow stepped into a series and was very much at sea. What annoyed me most in this book was how Tess main character kept telling everyone what a great p Cliché book with cliché characters.
