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?

    This is by far my favorite book I have ever read, and I love the complexity of each character and how it is a really relatable story. You can really dive deep into their relationship and the struggles they face throughout the novel and catch a glimpse of what some relationships actually go through, and what you may have experienced in your life. I honestly do believe this book series coming to life on the big screen is incredible, and Anna has come a long way from starting on Wattpad and she really deserves all the success she is getting.

    The minute I heard about the movie coming out I started googling and found out there was a book and I got it was quickly as I could. This isn’t one of those books where you read it on and off. I simply couldn’t stop reading this book. As soon as I picked up the book I just couldn’t put it down the love and chemistry between Hardin and Tessa is incredible. I truly felt like I was a bystander in the book as I was actually there. I normally start and book read a few chapters get bored wait a month and continue but this book made it impossible for me to do that. I seriously congratulate you Anna Todd you made an outstanding book.

    the people who are saying that this book “promotes domestic abuse” and toxic relationships are the same people who never bothered to continue reading ALL of the books in the series. i don’t even think the intention was to make Hardin appear to be abusive, yes the book has toxic elements, but only to portray that even people like Hardin have the potential to change and better themselves in the future. I didn’t like the first book so much either. Hardin berates and belittles Tessa throughout the majority of the book. Most of their relationship in the first and maybe even a bit of the second book was just sex based. The plot can be a bit repetitive, but I can guarantee you that it gets better throughout the novels.

    This book had me wrapped around its figure from the moment I started it, as did Hardin shortly after. This book gave me butterflies, chills, smiles, and lots of tears. I haven’t been this hooked on a book series in so long. The first and second books are my favorite two!! I would recommend this series to anyone. The push and pull between the two of them shatters your heart and puts it back together again over and over. You fall in love with this maddening love story!!
  • Amazing!!

    I hadn’t been into reading books. That was until I came across this book. It was to the point to where it was difficult to put the book down. The typical good girl bad boy love story. The way they were when together, and how they made each other feel. I was rooting for them all the way and things were good with them. Until his secret came out. That’s when things changed for them, what a cliff hanger. Now I have to read the second one.

    Definitely Recommend! This series kept me on my toes the whole time, i couldn’t put it down. For all who are hating on this book, I couldn’t disagree more. It’s a series, I wouldn’t base my opinion on a series off of the first book. Though I loved the first book anyway sooooo. This series is very real and gives a glimpse into real world relationships, the good, bad and how up and down they are. I think Anna Todd did a great job with this series and deserves the hype. period.
  • Amazing, Thrilling and Romance

    This book is amazing it has everything thing you need in a romantic thrilling book. However, I will say depending on the age it can be a little too graphic for some teens. Yes, some of the content is a little mature but ,that is why the this book is great it shows you that the events in he book happens to people. It is a great book to read on any day!
  • Best series ever!
