This fast-paced sequel to I Heart New York races Angela Clark through a whirlwind week in Hollywood. James Jacob, Hollywood star and heartthrob has made special requests for her to conduct the exclusive interview, and as days progress, she finds herself in deep shit with tabloids, paparazzi and Perez Hilton.
Embroiled in a scandal with misleading photographs to prove, even her boyfriend Alex Reid and best friend Jenny is convinced of her infidelity.

Meanwhile a shocking truth about James Jacobs is hers to reveal to the world, a secret that will save her career and love life. Except, the secret is not hers to tell.

In a series of hilarious misadventures, she survives crazy LA, only after puking in the bushes of a Hollywood star, getting dead drunk more than a few nights in a row, and finally getting herself out of the fire.

As always, tragedies are blessings-in-disguise. She, or rather James Jacob and his personal assistant-slash-something-more Blake, takes us on a ride through LA’s Chateau Marmont, Fred Segal, Melrose Avenue, Rodeo Drive and The Ivy.

A super fun piece by Lindsey Kelk, which took me a day to complete because I couldn’t stop reading. Thumbs up!
