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 is one of the best second chance romance novels I have ever read!

He was looking at me as if in awe, the way he did when he finally saw me all those years ago. As if he’d just discovered a fairy amongst monsters.

Claire delivered with this novel and it was well worth the wait! Jensen and Mia’s story came to life and resonated within my soul… For over a week all my thoughts have been plagued with these two. The balance and chemistry between them was perfect through and through.

PH teaser 2

So we met Jensen and Mia in Kaleidoscope Hearts as side characters and the tension was always obvious when in their presence but to learn the depths of their division was absolutely heart breaking. This was a real awakening to a love, hate, love relationship.

I’m not good at holding grudges, Mia. You know that. I don’t know how to hate you. I’ve tried. I was so angry at you for so long, for shutting me out when I needed you most, for not being there, but I don’t know how to hate you.

Jenson was the epitome of a perfect man who has made mistakes, but genuinely learned from them and strived to be better. His love for Mia is so unending and loyal it leaves you breathless. There’s nothing sexier than a man who knows what he wants. But Mia, she isn’t so sure and with everything that has happened in their past you can’t blame her for being somewhat hesitant… Now all these years later how easy is it to let an old love back in with all that life has thrown them.

Remember to read the prequel Torn Hearts prior to reading Paper Hearts as it is vital to grasp the entire story that makes up Jensen and Mia.

    An opportunity to not make the same mistakes. You know what to expect from the other person. I like second chances in books, but not in real life.
    Thanks for the chance! <3

    The chance to either redeem yourself or to seek forgiveness for whatever hurt you may have cause. The chance to reconnect with someone that made such an impact in your life that even after they are no longer in your life their presence still lingers

  • Diana Doan

    Sounds redundant, but a second shot at what was meant to be. To be with someone familiar yet enough time has lapsed so that they’re not completely the same as before…hopefully the change is for the better so things work out this time.

    I love second chance romances!!! ♥ We’re human and it’s human to err… no one is perfect and we all make mistakes. Sometimes, the timing isn’t right or due to certain circumstances, two people may not be right for one another then. But that doesn’t mean they can’t try again! I’m all for giving love a second chance! I believe that every epic love story isn’t smooth sailing and this is why second chance romances are the best kind! It’s about two people working at their relationship again because they can’t deny the love for one another! I love this series so much and can’t wait to read Paper Hearts! Thanks for the chance 🙂

    I love second chance stories because we are all human and shit happens!

    I love that if you made mistakes the first time, you get another chance to fix those mistakes and find your HEA.

  • Lori

    2nd chances are needed in life. People make mistakes and having a 2nd chance to love is one of the most special stories.

  • Finau Taufa

    The thing that I love about second chance romances is the road to rekindling their love. I feel like it’s sometimes necessary for that couple to grow through that heartbreak to learn and appreciate the other and also so they know not to take each other for granted. Yeah the journey sucks but the reward is “oh-so” amazing!

  • Jasmin H.

    I love everything about second chance romances. The feelings, folks, the feeeelings!!
