Susanne Wolff isn’t thrilled when her mother sends her all the way across the country to Freiburg to save her uncle’s stationery store from bankruptcy. Freiburg is too provincial for her taste, and besides, pen and paper are outdated anyway.
Anja Lamm, Paper Love’s only full-time employee, takes an instant dislike to the arrogant, digital-loving snob who’s supposed to be her temporary boss.
But thanks to a meddling cat, a business trip to a stationery fair, and an armada of origami boats, Anja soon starts to see beneath Susanne’s aloof exterior, and Susanne discovers how sexy pens and notebooks can be—at least when Anja handles them.
As the end of Susanne’s three-month stay approaches, will she stick to her plan to leave, or will she open her heart to more than just paper love?

Susanne has just quit a job she wasn’t enjoying. Now that she is jobless, her mother send her to help her uncle to save his stationery shop. A few problems come along. It is placed in Freiburg, on the other way of the country, aaaand, pencils, pens, paper, is yesterday for her, used to all latest gadgets. Anja is a stationery geek. She loves all related to it and loves her job. She dislikes Susanne from the beginning due to her arrogant towards her and the shop. Neither is looking for romance but love can do this to you, right? When you less expect it, it comes right to your face. I really enjoyed the story since I am a geek myself, always have been, of anything related to notebooks, journals, pencils … I have never visited Freiburg, or Germany for that matter, but because of the descriptions and the story itself, it is in my-places-to-visit-soon list. All characters are entertaining, they all have something to say, they are all important to the story, including the city and the cat. With funny as well as romantic moments through the story. I know I am a sucker for a romance but, you know, the thing is, this is a really good romance that I highly recommend.
