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 thought I was doing fine. But here she is, years later, forced to work with me, reminding me why I fell in love with her in the first place.
And this time I'm going to do everything in my power to never let her go.

I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

I swear Claire’s writing gets better with each book. Mia and Jensen’s story was evocative, poignant, and overall brilliant! She ripped out my heart, threw it against a wall, probably laughed about it, and then magically put it back together.
At the end of Torn Hearts I wanted to cause bodily harm to Jensen for his actions. I hated him for what he had done and, much like Mia, didn’t feel I could ever forgive him or forget. However, 39 percent into Paper Hearts I found myself actually SOBBING FOR HIM! Can you believe it? I couldn’t. I was supposed to be on Mia’s side (and I was) but I felt sorry for him. I completely felt like I was betraying girl code! He hurt us; he doesn’t deserve my tears! I was appalled at myself. I blame Claire lol. Damn her for writing a character who WAS redeemable once you got to know him, his thoughts, and his feelings. I started reasoning with Mia to listen to him and give him a chance to explain and happily cheered them on the harder Jensen started fighting for her!
Mia and Jensen’s heartache and love for each other is palpable throughout each page and this story will pull you in and steal your heart <3
