Publisher's Summary

I lost her. No. 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.

A must read for fans of second chance romance!!

Would you listen to Paper Hearts again? Why?

Absolutely! I love the narrators and I thought they did a fantastic job with this story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Paper Hearts?

Grand gestures!!!

What about Misty Stone and Vikas Adam ’s performance did you like?

I thought Misty was fabulous at conveying the spitfire that was Mia and Vikas was perfect as Jensen. Those Jensen Talks chapters were highly anticipated as the story progressed.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - most definitely. It took me a few days because of work and life but I put aside the book I was reading so I could focus solely on this book.

Any additional comments?

If I were to give a star for every time that Jensen made me swoon, this would be a 10+ star book. Watching these two try again was equal parts entertaining & charming. I am smitten with this couple and I am sad my time with them has ended.

Mia was a frustrating character. Her hesitation to move forward, though not unfounded, was maddening especially when compared to the effort Jensen put forth to restore her faith in him. The history of her journey sans Jensen was definitely heartbreaking to recount and it was good to see her find some closure to that low point in her life.

Jensen most definitely owns my heart. I adored him and his column. Jensen Talks was a unique way to learn more about the man who owned Mia's heart. He was adorable as a father and put forth a valiant effort at winning back the love of his life. I lost count of the numerous heavy sighs and flutters he gave me throughout the book.

Paper Hearts is definitely a contender for a top read of 2016. Interestingly enough, Kaleidoscope Hearts was one of my top reads of 2015. For all the love I have for Oliver and Estelle, I think Mia and Jensen may have moved ahead of them in my all-time favorite couples list - and that is courtesy of the uber talented Claire Contreras. I’m looking forward to Vic’s story in Elastic Hearts, which is already queued up on my Audible app.

Even more captivating then print!

I've read this book countless times and every time my emotions are tested, but hearing it on audio was like hearing it for the first time. The emotion was so raw! Oh and Vika does a perfect Jensen!

Annoying Heroine and Useless Chapters

This book was ok... The author really needs someone to teach her how to edit, though. There were several useless chapters, and story prattled and rambled on unnecessarily. This story could have been so much shorter without all the useless filler space.

And the heroine... she was such s selfish piece of work. I couldn't stand her! She was thoughtless and annoying (so were her family and friends tbh with the exception of Oliver) and I hated how she kept being referred to as "selfless" and "light". What a crock! She was pessimistic, whiny, weak and pathetic. I started to feel bad for the hero. He took her back waaaay too fast; he made it so easy for her to come back at the end after all the hoops she made him jump through throughout the story and after hurting his kid like that. She was such an asshole. I really regret reading this...

Loved the story

There are times a book drives me crazy. This was one of those books. So many times I screamed GET TOGETHER ALREADY! But then I'd sit back and think about how real life they were. We, as humans, can be so thick headed at times. I really did enjoy this book as a whole.

I listened to about half here on Audible, then decided to read the rest on my Kindle. I loved the narrators at times, other times they just missed the mark. I'll admit that I preferred reading this one.

A beautiful story

Would you listen to Paper Hearts again? Why?

Yes, because it was such a wonderful one.

What other book might you compare Paper Hearts to and why?

I would compare it to Kaleidoscope Hearts, which is the first book in this series. It was a similar story both with it's intensity and emotions.

Have you listened to any of Misty Stone and Vikas Adam ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think so.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A beautiful love story.

Any additional comments?

What a story. I give it 4 & 1/2 stars. What a beautiful journey for these two characters. I really enjoyed this book. I look forward to the next one in this series. I definitely recommend this book, this series and this author.

Achy feels!!

Any additional comments?

An emotional and beautiful second chance love story that had me choking back tears and rubbing at the ache in my chest! I have to admit that it took me quite awhile to forgive Jensen for what he did in the past but as the story progressed, I could see that he did truly love Mia. I liked that he never gave up when he was given a second chance and that he was actually always there all along (watching from afar) even when they weren't together anymore. The narrators did a great job especially in the break up scene - my heart ACHED from the words!! So much emotions in their voices !!

4.5 Stars A Sweet Heartwarming Second Chance Story

Paper Hearts by Claire Contreras (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Misty Stone and Vikas Adam
Series: Hearts #2

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ I loved the chemistry between Mia and Jensen and I could really feel how much he loved her. Some of the things he said to her just made me melt! I could tell Mia loved him a lot too, however she was very cautious with her heart and at a point in the story I was a bit disappointed that she was STILL acting like Jensen wasn't all in, which considering how much he's shown her, surprised me. In the end though it was a sweet and heartwarming story. I have not read this author before but I will be sure to check her out again.

Misty Stone’s narration was quite good. Vikas Adam sounded like he was trying to deepen his voice and I found it sounded odd,(almost “pretend scary monster” like) however he didn't have a lot of parts to read and I got used to it after a while. In the end I thought the narration overall was well done.

Not as good as the first, but yet the same. <br />
