One of the big reasons why I love fiction and romance is because I love being taken to an unknown place where I can dream and think, and there were moments where I did just that. Like I felt I was sitting on that bench in Central Park in NYC and watching those people walk past and live their lives or feel their pain.
Gah the column, the dating, the interviews were fun and delicious to read. It all kind of reminded me of the film You've got mail on a different level. Everything about the story captured my heart.
This book though bled me dry, I felt every anxiety, every emotion and every tear. I honestly don't think this book needs a review based on what it's about as for one it has already many reviews out there already, so giving my two cents isn't really needed. But to me this book is character driven, it's an EPIC LOVE STORY so I'm just going to explain a few of my thoughts and emotions while reading it.
This book had me in knots yet had me gushing for Jensen and also Mia's love through and through, they were obviously meant to be.
When I read Kaleidoscope Hearts I was set to believe that Jensen was this darker and mysterious tattoo'd man that hurt Mia, in actual fact he has a BIG HUGE HEART that just didn't have many options at the time.
Jensen just keeps his emotions close to his chest, but also opens himself to people who want to see who he is. He's a writer, he writes children's story's about a girl who believed in him, he also writes a column about dating and his own romance but also a love novel. Therefore he is all about the heart and is able to tell people who he is on paper.
I adored Jensen and his Intense charisma plus his beautiful open heart, that just wanted Mia to forgive his choice and learn to let him in again. She was a Fiesty heroine and felt hurt by their past. Yet Jensen just pulled everything he had to help HER heal. Once Mia started to believe in them and be ok with Jensen then we start to see how happy they cold be, is the kind of love we dream about in books, and I held my kindle on my chest feeling their love in quantities.
Paper Hearts is an epic journey of two people who wait for timing and making the other believe in them. It's about teaching the other how to live, how to be friends again and how to move on from that. A story about new beginnings, about second chances. About loving the one person who means EVERYTHING to you. I felt EVERYTHING with them, for them, and alongside them. I would say though above all this second chance love story was a good balance of everything, about them as a couple, a family, friends, New York, photos, art, books, coffee.. Gah it had it all for me and took me to a city I'm dying to visit some day, it's one reason why I read. To visit places, Paper Hearts took me places. If your like me and love that then pick this book up..
That is all.
These are both standalones.
But Jensen's & Mia's story is Paper Hearts, which includes the Novella Torn Hearts which needs to be read before you start.
