My life comes down to this. Two faces. One choice.

Salem is my twin sister. She loved me. She protected me. She forgave me, even after I failed her. I just got her back after searching for three long, lonely years.

Then there’s Clay. Sweet yet intense and nursing a dark past of his own, he’s all the redemption I don’t deserve. He wants to open me up and know the insides of m

Another fabulous novel from author Hanna Peach. Paper Dolls is an amazing new adult suspense with a whole lot of twists and turns that are hard to see coming. Aria is on the hunt for her sister, Salem, who she hasn't seen in three years. They share a haunting past that we only get bits and pieces of throughout the book. It is a dark, gut wrenching tale of sexual violence. Peach has woven this story so many different ways that you will be on the edge of your seat wondering what actually happened ...more

Well, then! A complete and total mindf*k!! The beginning of the book was a little disorientating but once I got past the first few chapters, I was rewarded with a very clever and twisty romantic suspense story. Very memorable characters and an interesting storyline. Not at all what I expected.

The book begins right in the middle of a very tense scene which I had to go back and re-read after finishing this book. At first I was very disoriented by the story and could not figure out where the autho

Paper Dolls isn't the usual kind of love stories. It is the kind that'll make you fall in love at first and stay at peace for a while and then completely shatter everything you knew.
It starts with a prologue that will leave you so confused and yet draw you closer. If it wasn't for college classes, I would've finished this book in one sitting.

If you have read Girl Wife Prisoner, you'd know that you are dealing with a very talented woman. Hanna doesn't write stories that I would classify

Definitely a young adult read,

Good but some grammatical/editing errors. 75% of this edition was Paper Dolls the remainder was excerpts for other books.

Clay and Aria both overcoming obstacles to be together. There are some tough and difficult topics covered. Well done though.

Aria has been searching for her twin sister, Salem, for years. She’s always just out of reach, leaving clues to where she’s been or is going but appearing and disappearing like mist. Her latest clue has led Aria to Mirage Falls where Aria has achingly given up hope. She has a job, an apartment, and best of all Clay. Clay seems to know everything about her and knows just what to say and do, but just as things start to become comfortable Aria sees Salem outside the window of her job. Nobody else s ...more

I thought I had it all figured out.
I didn't.
But I was close.

This book is one that kept my mind thinking from beginning to end. Even though I figured out the major twist fairly early, it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story.

At the center of the story is Aria, who is the sole POV. At her side are two people vying for her attention - Salem, her twin sister, and Clay, her boyfriend. I had a feeling early on, with some of her inner monologue that something wasn't quite right with her. Howe

Hanna Peach is a master at writing romantic suspense, and she does not disappoint with Paper Dolls. This story had me hooked from the very beginning, was beautifully written, and had twists and turns that kept me guessing. I love stories that are unpredictable, and with this book, I truly had no idea what was coming. When the story begins, Aria is looking for Salem, her twin sister who she has not seen in three years. The circumstances surrounding her absence are unclear, and it is not until Sal ...more

This story epitomizes the deepest, strongest and truest meaning of love. Unconditional love. But it was also a mind f*ck of note. Peach brilliantly weaves a twisted web that left me breathless and in awe.

The opening scene gave me goosebumps and certainly piqued my interest. The rest of the story flowed right off the pages, keeping me in suspense every step of the way.

Aria and Clay’s relationship was a beautiful thing to watch as it developed and grew, even with the dark secrets haunting them. T

OMG.... Just, OH MY GOD!! Oh Wow! I’m not sure how I’m supposed to do this without giving away spoilers but THAT was a surprising and fabulous read. I’m not going to discuss ANY content because of the twists that will leave you stunned but I am going to recommend that you one-click this piece of art now. It’s something new in a really great way. You will be constantly guessing but just forget it because it’s useless. Just buckle up for the ride and be amazed and stunned with the rest of us.

This book was beyond anything you could ever imagine. I am a huge fan of Hanna Peach and I love all her books but this one tops them all.
Starting this book you can envision how the story will go but then the author takes you in a completely different direction. This book blew my mind and I could not put it down.

I normally don’t like books whose prologues portray future and then it starts from the beginning. But when i started to read, it intrigued me. This prologues is one of the best starters for books I’ve ever seen.

The story started out as cute and lovey and then it just kept building up. I adore authors who can keep it interesting throughout whole book adn it’s not even that short of a book. It was really emotional and I

Exquisitely written. Hanna Peach continually surprises me with the brilliance of her writing. This is a very hard review to write since I don’t want to give away any of the brilliance of this story. Aria is a broken soul. As we spend time with her we learn that her twin sister has left her for a while and she has been seeking her, when her twin reappears we then learn about the horrors that happened during their childhood and shaped Aria. As she is trying to find her strength and stand on her ow ...more

Wow! My brain seems to have checked out in order to process this amazing story!

I don’t know what I was expecting when I started reading Paper Dolls. Perhaps a romance story with a twist? What I do know is I was NOT expecting such a mind blowing, heart breaking, unforgettable book!

Right from the very start this story had me feeling uneasy. There was a strong sense that something wasn’t quite right. I’m ashamed to say that I started thinking that perhaps I just wasn’t connecting to the story, that
Rachelle Reads

Paper Dolls is a really good suspense filled story. Aria 18 has been looking for her twin Salem for 3 years something goes down to make them runaway. Aria meets a very sweet and persistent Clay. Clay is amazingly patient and so loving towards Aria they are so cute together. He believes in her and wants a beautiful future with her.
Aria and Clay both have secrets. The secrets unfold through the book which I really liked it kept me totally engaged in the story.
I'm keeping my review vague

When I read the synopsis for Paper Dolls by author Hanna Peach, I was immediately intrigued. I thought I was going to get a fast paced story leading in a cataclysmic end.

I mean for God's sake it started out with a virgin working in an adult toy boutique.

Instead what I got was something more meaningful and deep, raw and highly emotional wrapped in engaging storytelling. This is the kind of story that stays with you long after you read it.

A brilliantly written psychological romantic thriller that

Totally different for Ms. Hanna and I'm so thankful to have been given the opportunity to revel in her new creation.

Yet again I'm blown away. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to finish. I thought the author was leaving holes every step of the way. But the writing is beautiful and I couldn't put it down, and come to find out those holes are there on purpose. I won't tell you any more, other than keep reading. You won't regret it.

3.5 This started out solid. I loved the angst and sense of mystery. Loved Clay and again, the ANGST. But, I wish I didn't figure out the twist so soon and the last 25% got repetitive, skimmed a little. But, over all I enjoyed it.

This is a story like nothing I have read before it grabs your attention and keeps you there. The characters are all brilliant and play a vital role throughout the read. Clay is an artist who takes an interest in Aria, they are comfortable with each other and you hope it will turn in something serious. Clay has his own deep issues which he deals with, Aria is eighteen years old and trying to find her twin sister Salem who ran away three years ago, she settles in Mirage Falls and finds a job in a ...more

Wow, what can I say without giving away the story and being a spoiler. An amazing story that will grasp your attention and keep you page turning. Aria and Salem are twin sisters and Clay is Aria's boyfriend. Clay was so supportive of Aria as she searched for her missing twin. The book begins with its ending as a prologue, giving you a glimpse of what is happening. Then it lets you draw your own conclusion. Aria has a gun and she has to chose….Salem or Clay. Who will live?

“Sometimes we need to crumble to nothing before we can rebuild ourselves into someone better.”
This story starts with its ending as a prologue. You draw your own conclusions as you read and I changed mine a few times. I was invested in the characters and the story. This isn’t the typical New Adult read. I went into this story without knowing what it was about and I think that is the best way to read it. For my review I won’t go into plot but do know it has some triggers to be aware of (abuse, di

Wow! What a great book this was! It sent me on an emotional roller coaster ride! Without giving anything away, I just want to say that this is a story with depth and layers! This author drew me in from beginning to end! This is a story about unconventional and unconditional kind of love! As the author wrote, "My name is Aria. I'm 18. And today, I must choose. One of the two people I love has to die". Bring the tissues when you read this!

I was captured from the beginning! One minute you think that you have the relationship between Aria, Salem and Clay all figured out and then something happens to change it! Paper Dolls had me guessing right up until the end! I’ve read many books by this author but this one is suspenseful which is very different from her others! I highly recommend it!
