There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything AFTER... Life will never be the same. #Hessa

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way.

But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.

But he’s also rude—to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does—until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.

He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?

Unless…could this be love?


  • Absolutely loved it

    I read the story when she had first posted it and Wattpad and being the HUGE one direction fan I was, I absolutely loved it. Since publishing the series her work has gotten even better which is hard. I see a lot of reviews of people judging her for the way she chose the characters and how it was “teaching young females to stay in an abusive relationship” but I don’t think of it that way. Hardin was damaged. Tessa wanted to fix him, sometimes that’s hard but she was trying. If you read the whole series your aspect on this book will change, I promise you that.
  • Emotional rollercoaster but worth it

    By mylie marty
    Still have a book hangover. Takes you through every up and down but worth it in the end if you are a hopeless romantic
  • Amazing!!

    My friend and I went to watch the movie when it first came out and then she started reading the book serious. We all picked at her because anytime she got an opportunity you’d see her reading and now I understand why. This book is seriously addicting and i’ll have it finished within a week of starting it because it is that good!
  • Different type of feeling

    I personally loved the book. I’m sad I just now am hearing about it but, i watched the movie first. I really liked it, it wasn’t the best movie ever made but it made sense and i really fell in love with the characters. Hungry for more I just began the series a few days ago. I finished the first book within 2 days and practically read the second one in less than 2 days. I’m not saying that this book is perfect. It has its flaws. But Anna did an excellent job making me feel connected to Hardin, Tessa, Landon.. after each book I just can’t help but find myself for long periods of time just pondering and thinking about the book. Who the book reminds me of, what Tessa’s life consists of. I’ve never been a huge English literature fan. But, I can honestly say I had read a few literature novels but now I have found myself not only purchasing the after series but Wuthering Heights, and many others. Even do a career in publishing because this has pulled me into another world. I escape reality and become Tessa or maybe the one overlooking it. I love this series, and the movie. But this is mid me series review.

    Honestly, I’ve never read this book, but by the way it sounds, this is something that not only romanticizes abusive relationships but also says that it is women’s job to heal broken men. Out of all the books that could Hollywood could invest in, they picked this one. 🙄
  • Soooo Good if your above age 18

    I read this book when Harry Styles was the main character and this was just another fan fiction on watt pad. This book is SOOOOO GOOOD and I’m about to read it again!!!! (Harry Styles is still the main character to me😍😂)

    Great read I def love it. For me they are fictional characters. People are rating it as if it was real or as if Anna Todd is telling people get in an abusive relationship. Again fiction and a good read.
