Paper Hearts

I lost her.

No, I didn’t lose her. I threw her away.

She was my best friend.

I was never supposed to fall in love with her.

I was careless.

She was heartbroken.

I was doing fine until she came back into my life and reminded me what love was supposed to feel like.

When it’s all said and done, she may not want to stay, but this time I’m going to do everything in my power to not let her go.





Paper Hearts had me confused. I finished it feeling unsure about how I felt and decided to not rate or review it until my emotions had settled. Then I was in the car a few days later and Hey Ho by The Lumineers came on the radio and I cried like a baby in my car thinking of Jensen and Mia.

So, it is safe to say Jensen and Mia pulled at my heartstrings.

Paper hearts is a beautiful example of how hard and heartbreaking love can really be. Knowing there is tension between Jensen and Mia in Kaleidoscope Hearts and finding out all the reasons why in Torn Hearts, readers are given insight into the inner thoughts of both characters, with Paper Hearts exploring every possible emotion between Jensen and Mia.

 Paper Hearts is a story of lost love, painful mistakes and the never ending hope for forgiveness and a future. As Jensen tries to right his wrongs and show Mia she is his happy ever after. Mia has to decide whether she can alter her meticulous to-do list and make room for the guy that other girls would die to have.

In Paper Hearts, Claire Contreras writes a gorgeous and flawless love story. Showcasing the kaleidoscope of emotions that each character goes through, on their journey to happy ever after, her words allow readers to immerse themselves in the story. Feeling every, ache, every tear and every smile. Claire shows off the best and the worst and Mia and Jensen, reminding readers that these feelings, reactions and outcomes are very real.

With a perfect balance and presence from the series’ existing characters, Paper Hearts cements its presence in the romance world and will no doubt have readers wanting more from all of Claire’s Characters.


Anyone that can include the awesome Marcus Mumford and his banjo into a book has me vouching for them always.

    Since I’m trying to expand my reading I will give this book a try. Especially since I can read it for free. Is this a standalone or do I need to read the other one first?
