Torn Hearts (Hearts #1.5) by Claire Contreras
This book made me excited for Paper Hearts!!!!
After being in the minority with Kaleidoscope Hearts and rating it a 3, I’ve been apprehensive to read the next book and novella in the series. I love Claire Contreras and her There is No Light in Darkness books so I am always willing to give her books a chance.
Torn Hearts is the prequel to Paper Hearts and must be read first for a complete understanding of Mia and Jensen’s relationship. To be honest I don’t remember much from KH, so reading this was a fresh look at the two characters and their relationship. It reminded me a lot of Cole and Blake from her other books and that’s A-okay in my book, I loved that couple and their angsty relationship.
Mia and Jensen loved each other young but mistakes and life choices broke them apart, leaving one hating the other, and the other full of regret. Claire Contreras packed a lot of feels into 45 pages showing what an amazing author this woman is. Can’t say much more without spoilers, so onward I go to Paper Hearts!!!
