Review ~ I loved this book. I have to admit the only reason why I picked it up is because I was watching a YouTube video and lady that I was watching mentioned she was reading a book by this author. I'm not sure which book it was but I went and looked up the author and decided to just go ahead and pick up the first book in this series and read it. I'm so glad that I did.
I immediately felt connected to Angle's story. I felt sorry for her and everything she went through in one night. I did find it a bit off that she just up and ran away from everything. Maybe that is because I couldn't do that myself but it is a story and anything goes right.
Deciding to jet off to New York to get away from it all Angela meet Jenny at the hotel at which she decided to stay. Jenny is a simple employee at The Union who sees herself as the next Oprah. Jenny takes in upon herself to help Angela out after hearing her story. Angela and Jenny immediately hit is off and become friends, which gives Angela a "support" group right from the start of her journey.
After a getting an amazing New York makeover and going on a shopping spree, hello you need clothes when you don't have any and an amazing new handbag, Angela meets Tyler who is a Wall Street Banker hotshot and Alex a rock star who is in a kind of popular group but is thinking about disbanding and decides after Jenny basically decides for her that she is going to date both me. Angela doesn't feel comfortable dating both guys after a short period of time but has a hard time "breaking up" with one of the guys.
After all is said and done Angela must decide what she wants to due with her life. Not please her Mom and friends back in UK. Not please Tyler, Alex, Jenny or any of her New York friends.
