Publisher's Summary

Falling in love wasn't part of the plan in this lesbian romance from best-selling author Jae.  

Susanne Wolff isn't thrilled when her mother sends her all the way across the country to Freiburg to save her uncle's stationery store from bankruptcy. Freiburg is too provincial for her taste, and besides, pen and paper are outdated anyway.  

Anja Lamm, Paper Love's only full-time employee, takes an instant dislike to the arrogant, digital-loving snob who's supposed to be her temporary boss.  

But thanks to a meddling cat, a business trip to a stationery fair, and an armada of origami boats, Anja soon starts to see beneath Susanne's aloof exterior, and Susanne discovers how sexy pens and notebooks can be - at least when Anja handles them.  

As the end of Susanne's three-month stay approaches, will she stick to her plan to leave, or will she open her heart to more than just paper love? 

 Contains mature themes.

Holy Hell I Loved it!!!

As soon as I saw Abby Craden was the narrator, I preordered "Paper Love." She is definitely my favorite narrator so I was looking forward to this audio book and it did not disappoint. I loved everything about it. The characters were all great. I think I liked both main characters equally which is rare. One thing I wanted to make a note of which was awesome was the fact that a book finally mentioned one of the women having a PERIOD!! ha! It sounds silly, but I've always found it funny how no one ever mentions that. The story line is somewhat simple but I was hooked immediately with the dialogue and narration. I love that the people were somewhat normal meaning that nobody was ridiculously wealthy or famous. just loved it all!!!

what a wonderful story

I loved the storyline. The transformation from enemy's to friend... well it was so smooth. the supporting characters were amazingly well written. Suzy character was easily hated for a long moment but with an ease Jae brings her close and she just slips right in to your heart. I truly can relate to "her Pen Geek" . Abby Craden does such a great job bringing her Character to life.
I hope there will be a follow up story soon.
This book is such a beautiful heart warming book everyone should give it a read/listen.

Loved everything about this

This was my first time listening to a book read by Abby Craden, and while I enjoyed her voice overall it was the voice she gave to Susanne that truly won me over. It was an absolutely lovely voice, very sweet despite her usually professional demeanor. I'll definitely be looking into other books that have her reading them.

I did sometimes have trouble figuring out when a character was actually speaking and when they were thinking to themselves, but I'm starting to think that's simply the nature of audiobooks and has nothing to do with the reader.

As I expect from Jae by this point, the book itself was wonderful. Since we get to experience each character's thoughts separately, I was truly able to see the slow burn that developed between them and it was very charming, especially seeing it from Anja's side of things. It was an absolute delight to be able to explore such a wonderful city as Freiburg.

Really loved this book

Like Anja, I too like paper and pen compared to doing everything online. I had put off getting this book because I didn’t think I would enjoy, but like every other book from Jae I was not disappointed. It was a great read and would definitely recommend it.

Love It!

I loved this story. I love the references to Germany. More than once I stopped to google the lovely town where the story takes place, Freiburg, the canals (Bächle), the fountain pens, and the German Foods the characters enjoy! All this was just icing on the cake of a really sweet and sexy love story.
