This is hands down the best book in the series so far. I really enjoyed this one.
The fourth book in the ‘I Heart’ series sees Angela out to Vegas on a girls trip before Christmas. Sure she is weeks away from being deported, but when did that ever stop a girl from having a good time?
I don’t really know what to say about this book other than this is the cheesy chick flick movie I would love to see. Like it was fun, it had fashion, it had romance, it had friendship…it’s just one of those things that click and everything is great.
Honestly shocked at how the series has turned around from the last two books haha, I was for sure ready to give up on the series but it’s all turned out for the best.
I even appreciate James, the celebrity Angela interviewed in Hollywood, more than I did before. He’s fabulous. I’ll admit written in as that stereotypical gay character but do kind of love it.
So yes, girls trip to Vegas, I’ll admit this story is super far fetched but at this point, what hasn’t been in this series. I think I’m just jealous that Jenny and Angela are able to score amazing designer clothes no matter where they are in the world. (A moment of silence for the clothes lost in the airport incident in Paris)
But I have to say this trip is probably one of the most successful trips Angela has had since coming to New York. Sure she is still drinking away her problems, but this time it wasn’t so terrible reading about them. I think it’s just the effect of Vegas, that and the fact that instead of reading about Angela curled up by the toilet throwing up, it was less about the hangovers and more about her actually dealing with crap that happened the night before. So yay, growth.
That being said, I feel like Angela wasn’t the one in this book that actually made the worst decisions. Jenny Lopez, I expected better for her. I was shocked when I found out she got married to Jeff. Ridiculous. She needs to forget that boy. He is trash.
Not that Angela wasn’t considering a walk down the aisle of her own, but only so she could keep her visa…
It’s safe to say that didn’t go well and obviously, she and Alex have a fight about the situation because that seems to be a common theme in the books. They fight, and makeup, just like Jenny and Angela fight and makeup. At least this time she and Jenny were fighting for valid reasons, unlike the previous book.
One thing that was annoying though was Angela’s love of Christmas. Ugh. Did not expect her to be super festive, but I did think it was annoying. I don’t have anything against super festive people it was just something I didn’t care to read about.
At least she didn’t mention her Marc Jacobs bag as much, even though it did end up in a fountain at one point.
That being said, I think we are moving from the Marc Jacobs worship to Apple worship. Angela is obsessed with iPhones…which is fine but like does it have to be a big deal every time she mentions them, is there some sponsorship I don’t know about? I feel like it was more obvious in the last book…but still not a big fan.
The other thing that I thought was crazy, was that Angela suddenly won a bunch of money at the end and suddenly put a good plan together to get her visa together. I mean of course the end of the book was going to be cheesy and cliche but it was almost too cheesy. Like I expected everything to work out in the end, but I don’t know one too many details and it ended up going a bit too far but eh can’t complain too much.
I even got excited when Alex proposed. I didn’t think it was going to happen, I felt like maybe it was too soon after the whole fight they had and everything but then he had the box in his hand. I was excited, it was the perfect storybook ending, and I ate it up like the sap I am.
So overall, a great read. It brought the series back to that light fluffy kind of place so I enjoyed it. I’m interested to see where the next book takes us though as I have no idea what happens, I just know Angela must be going back to London based on the title. But what takes her there? I’m excited to find out.
