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.

"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!
"A must read for fans of second chance romance!!"
Absolutely! I love the narrators and I thought they did a fantastic job with this story.
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.
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.
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.
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.

"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...
"Not as good as the first, but yet the same.
not nearly as good as the first but the same narerator made it seem a little bit weird to me story was very predictable I won't be reading the Third.
"Jensen is the best!"
I love this book and the full series! I laughed out loud several times and it tore at my heart. This is a must read!!
"Real Love Stories Never End"
This story is heartbreaking and breathtaking. Mia and Jensen will steal your heart and leave you in Awe. I loved reading their backstory and finding out all the details of what went wrong the first time around. I also enjoyed watching them fight their love for each other although they clearly have no chance of getting over one another. It's a story about high emotions and the battles within ourselves to fight for what we need and can't live without with everything we have. It's a romantic, raw and beautiful love story of two soul mates finding their way back to each over and overcoming the all obstacles that stand in their way. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing this story to life and made for an enjoyable and fun listening experience.
I loved everything about this audible book. The narrators were great and the story line is everything I wanted. I love Mia & Jensen's story & didn't want it to end!
