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?


  • Love the series

    By Nina🧡
    I originally found the movie before the book and I rewatched the movie over and over again… to say I am fan of the after series is a understatement. Plus I am totally in love with Harden in the movies and in the books… while the movie was good the book is better.
  • 2 stars for audio version

    By Long time freecell player
    Fantastic book...but very disappointed in audio version. Maybe it’s because I’m new to audiobooks, but is it too much to ask for the main male character to actually sound like a man and have an English accent?! In my opinion this kills the effect the enjoyment of listening to the book.
  • THE BEST...

    By vy fy hsmsj konichawasesc
    This is by far one of the best books I have ever read the heartbreak, the emotion, the love and despair is all there. And I always find myself lost in the pages. This is definitely a must read and I encourage everybody to read it!!!!

  • Amazing!

    By Missk686
    Read all five books in a matter of weeks. Many had an opinion about the main characters being in a toxic relationship that was unhealthy. I felt it truly depicted what childhood traumas do to an individual and how hurt people, hurt people. It shows the strength it takes to overcome the damages endured at the hands of others and how cycles can be broken as long as we are willing to change the narrative of our own story for a better and healthy ending. Love that we get to see the characters in the future and where they are in “present” time. Definitely recommend this series! Well done Anna Todd!

  • Could not put this book down!

    By ggaaabbbyyyyyyyyy
    If you are into “romance” it’s more toxic than anything but so intriguing. It’s drama filled and I couldn’t stop reading. Continuing on to the next book in the series.

    I truly enjoyed this book! I watched the movies then decided i had to read the books and I was pleasantly surprised! The tension between Hardin and Tessa is baffling!
