After reading (and really liking) Kaleidoscope Hearts I was excited for this book, but it was completely different than I thought it would be. I read KH twice, and I don't remember it being mentioned at all that Jensen had a daughter, which is weird considering Oliver is her godfather.

I can't help it, I know I'm going to rant in this review (with SOME SPOILERS), and I feel really bad about it. I love Claire Contreras' writing and I loved Mia, but I hated Jensen with the white-hot power of a billion suns.

Jensen and Mia were in love, but decided to date other people when he went to grad school across the country. A few weeks after he left Mia (the love of his life/best friend/soulmate) he has sex with another girl and she gets pregnant. His side of the story is he "heard" Mia started dating someone and it was serious. Did he think to call Mia (his BFF/soulmate) and ask her? Nope, I guess that would have made too much sense. Then when he tells Mia, HE'S the one who's all hurt that she abandoned him when he needed her most. And thus begins the tale of Jensen, self absorbed martyr. He's the a****** who screwed their relationship over, and Mia made it clear (for FIVE years) she didn't want anything to do with him, but he still pines over her like a creepy stalker. Having all his friends keep tabs on her to tell him who she's dating...that's not romantic, it's frightening. He talks about her in the column he writes (again with the creepy), isn't she entitled to her privacy? I'd run far and fast from any guy (who supposedly loved me) who tried to make me look bad in such a public way.

Since they're working at the same magazine, they try to be friends, but then Jensen gets crazy jealous when Mia takes a date to some event she has to photograph.

I just didn't like this book. I will just be blunt. The characters were not likable or relateable. Jensen is a selfish jerk who gets another person pregnant and of course has to marry her. What every happened to paternity testing? If Mia was such a great friend and the love of his life, might he have not asked if she was seeing someone and it was serious? That was brought up when he told her he got another girl pregnant but never touched on again. It was left flying in the wind. Was it true? Who knows. Jensen of course pines for Mia for five years while he is becoming a success. He is now divorced and successful. What brought them to the divorce? It was never stated. So many details were missing.

Mia: She cries a lot. Annoying. I am not a fan of the crying Heroine. She holds a grudge and takes off whenever things get too hard. She was unlikable and needy in a way she needed to be chased or called. Puke.

The book was predictable from the get go, the pacing is slow and it reads similar to another book that came out a month ago. There is no hook or angst and nothing to make you root for the long lost lovers.

Another reviewer said she hated Jensen. I hated Mia.

Far fetched, whiny, predictable and characters and pace didn't work for me. Mia ruined the book. The writing itself was good and without bad edits and typos, the story line just never took off.

Did I read the same book as everyone else? I was a HUGE fan of Kaleidoscope Hearts--the story, the characters, the writing, I loved it all. And this book was nowhere near as good. It almost seems as if someone else wrote it, or Claire's heart just wasn't in it. First off, their story is completely different than the set up that was in KH. And they both act like two totally different people from what we met in KH, so this made it VERY hard to get into the story. One of my biggest pet peeves with this book is how many times Mia contradicted herself time and time again. I should've highlighted the lines so I could include them here, but it was at least five times. Jensen, was okay. I didn't find him swoon worthy and I didn't feel he really did much to win Mia back. He messed up BAD and it was sorta like he felt that it had been five years and she should be over it and oh, here's my kid isn't she cute? Another thing was I expected the paper hearts to really play into the story somehow like kaleidoscope hearts had in book one, but it was sort of like, "Oh Jensen sent me some paper hearts." I don't feel like there was anything I liked about this book. I only finished it because I loved KH so much and HOPED this one would redeem itself. It didn't. Obviously I'm in the minority here, because everyone else is loving it, but I felt that this read like a sloppy first draft.

You don't NEED to read Kaleidoscope Hearts - but you really should - you don't want to miss meating Oliver and the rest of the gang!!!

• A love like this is worth fighting for. •

We all remember Mia & Jensen from Kaleidoscope Hearts... Mia was Estelle's best friend, and Jensen was in the 'guy group' - best friends with Estelle's brother Victor and Estelle's future husband Oliver.

Mia and Jensen have always had this special bond. She was everything for him when they were younger.
And then, when he left to go to college in NY - they decided to take a little break from each other.
And like guys are - he was lonely and jealous, of whatever Mia was doing in California - and he had an affair with a girl from his class. And of course that girl ended up pregnant.
And being the good guy that he is, he felt he needed to get married to the girl. (There might have been some pressure from her dad too.)

All that left Mia totally heartbroken. And Jensen too - because not only was Mia the love of his life - she was also his best friend - and he needed her so much back then, but she just left and never looked back.

Now - five years later, both Mia and Jensen are in New York.
Mia took a temporary photographer job with Newsweek - the same magazine Jensen writes for as a freelancer. And of course he will be interviewing the couples she's taking pictures of.
How is she supposed to stay strong, when she has to see him all the time.

Jensen never got over Mia - he wants her back. He's divorced now and Mia has always been his big love - the girl that got away. He needs to make things right with her.
But she doesn't yet understand how hurt HE was back then. They have a lot to talk about.
