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?

Book that got me back into reading. This book was so good! I literally could not put it down.

Lots of sex.. I’m hoping the next book has less of it, but I understand it as a part of the story line and it isn’t always useless. Just kind of loses its slow burn lustre after the 35th steaming session yanno But! I love the characters. Deep and darling and growing. Makes you want to rip your hair out and shake them by the shoulders, but that’s why we love them.

THE BEST.... 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!!!!

AFTER. This book was everythig and more of what I expected and wanted out of the book. I have read many books in my time but this one is the best. I can’t wait to read the rest I am in awe of just this first one I can’t wait for the next… I wish the movie showed everything in this book as my imagination can go so far with just reading. I still am in love with the characters and am looking forward to reading these novels over and over.

After. The best modern love story written!!!

2 stars for audio version. 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.

Loved this. Loved this

Wow. Simply Amazing..that is all.

After. I’m such a big fan of this movie series and after watching it I wanted to read the books, but now I know I need to read them all over and ever. The book and the movie are both masterpieces and I’m so excited to read the next one!!

It’s teensy love 😍. It’s cute story and very much wild.

Amazing book. I read this in 2 days. I couldn’t put it down. So worth the read.

After review:. I loved this book. It gives you suspense and they are always right when they say the book is better than the movie. So much more details and just everything you would want in a book. I highly recommend!

Amazing.. I have read and reread this book so many times. Definitely recommend!

Great read. Couldn’t put it down

Such a good read. I read this book after watching the first movie and it’s so much better than that. It is such a good and passionate book. I couldn’t put it down.

Kept me on the edge of my seat. I LOVED THIS BOOK. I’m not much of a reader, but this book reeled me in and I was HOOKED from the beginning! Can’t wait to start After We Collided

After. This book was so good it had my emotions threw the roof honestly breathtaking

After. Omg I have read this when it first came out on Wattpad. Now reading it again it just….WOW!!!

Boring and predictable. The characters essentially have the same fight over and over and over again throughout the book. Characters aren’t that likeable..It was hard to finish this one..

Great Read. The Movie brought me to this book! I’m just going to put it like this. I read the first book in three days. Then I went to barns and nobles and brought the rest of the books. This book is a really good read. The writing is so good I couldn’t put it down. I was so into this book I didn’t talk to anyone for three days. I can’t wait to finish the second one. I do love how the book is so detailed about everything. I kept the book in my purse in case I had a moment to read it I couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to see how how Tessa and Hardin move forward with there lives in the second book.

An okay read. I enjoyed the book the very first time initially. I first read the book on Wattpad. I have to say I enjoyed the book much more on Wattpad. It got straight to the point and it didn’t drag on as much as the published one did. I read this book a numerous of times but coming back this time I noticed that when it’s not Tessa and Harden bickering, it’s just them having sex. It wasn’t as entertaining as it was when I read it the very first time. The sex scenes are too excessive and it just gets boring at a certain point but overall nice book. I hope the 2nd book is better

Amazing. I finished this book in 24 hours, I could not put it down. Onto book two!

Loved this more than I thought!. This was such a great read! The movies were great but do not do justice to this!!!

Obsessed. I’ve read this book a handful of times, I can’t get over it. Love it!

Awful. It is absolutely MIND BOGGLING to me that this book has 4.6 stars. The main characters are hard to like. Tessa is so boring and predictable. She lets Hardin walk all over her consistently. Hardin is such a jerk that he’s hard to like. They have the same fight over and over and over. Don’t waste your time. I had a hard time finishing it.

💗. Bro this’s just giving me butterflies🦋

Couldn’t put it down. Don’t trust the movie! The book is 1,000 times better! I read it start to finish I. 3 days.

Couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t put this book down I wanted to know what happened next! Love this book series!

Could not put this book down!. 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.

My favorite series. Loved it on wattpad, and love it now

After book. Amazing book but lots of things happened in the book that didn’t happen in the movie.

Intoxicating. Feels like a Rory and Jess from Gilmore Girls meets Fifty shades with a lot of young love and fighting and deceipt!

Mediocre. Struggled to finish this book. It felt so elementary. The entire story could have been cut down to have the size of the book. I also thought the plot twist at the end was far too redundant.

Give me a break.. Curious if I missed something because it says it has over a billion downloads. Silly, juvenile “plot” that was painful to slog through to the merciful end.

Finished it to fast :(. After the second movie came out on Netflix I decided to give them ago. I couldn’t help but want to read the books after that, and now I’m left sad because I can’t find anything as interesting as this to read! It took me 5 days to read the first 4 books, and I’ll read the 5th book as soon as it arrives! I couldn’t sit down, I couldn’t sleep. The only bad things I have to say are - I wish there were more books in the series, and the end is a little rushed :( regardless I fell in love with these books and all of my friends that I have (nicely) pressed to read the series have too! Well written, and you fall in love with the love story. Very well done and will be one of my all time favorites!

Love it. I absolutely loved this book & the movie!! Hardin Scott is definitely one of my favorite book characters ever

Great series. I remember reading this on watpad as a teenager and having to wait for the next chapter to come out. So amazing to see it come this far!!

Spicy and drama. Love this series!

After series. Love this series so much

Love the series. 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.

Totally Addicted. The movie got me hooked, but the book was so much better. I love this story! I don’t know what is so addicting about this story, but I just can’t quit it! Love Hardin + Tessa’s story.

10/10. best book i’ve ever read, i felt the passion & emotion the characters faced. the movie was disappointing but the books are always better & that is something i can agree on!

Amazing!. 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!

It’s hard to put into words how I feel about this book.. I don’t even have words to explain how much I love this book and the series. I started off by watching the movie and that’s how I found the book. I have read this series over and over again!! It’s like a comfort book. I could read this for the rest of my life and never get tired of it. Anna Todd is a very talented writer and she really knows how to catch your attention!!

RECOMMEND!!!!. 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!

Better than the movie. I loved the book way more than the movie!!!


Great series!. Loved loved love this series.. this is one of them that you cannot put down!

Holy wow.. The movie really did not do this book justice. This is by far one of the best books I have ever read.

LOVEEE ITTT. I loved this book and I read it in a whole day. That’s saying a lot because I don’t even like to read lol! The story line has me wanting more and more! Edited: (I finished the series a year ago but I wanted to add on) This series was my all time favorite for the longest time! I read and read them like crazy! They are so addictive, you seriously can’t get enough! These books made me cry, laugh and cringe. I will forever love Hardin and Tessa.

Heartbreaking beautiful. Never in my life have I loved a series so much and that's saying something I love to read I can spend hours upon hours and just get lost in the world I'm reading, but never before like this it was I think the best I've ever read heartbreaking, inspiring and just amazing to see Hardin grow into a man instead of the boy he started out as. I cried I laughed I held my breath and can't believe that's it's over. I can't wait to read more from this amazing author. Thank you for giving us a chance to read your beautifully written words

Hard to read.. Honestly. I am finding it so hard to read this book. Hardins character is emotionally abusive and ‘romanticising’ this behaviour is absolutely abhorrent. He slowly tears away at Tessa to the point that she creates some unhealthy obsession towards her abuser. Just ask yourself if this is the type of relationship you would want to be in, or that you would want your daughter to be in. I know this is just a book, but I worry about what impression this leaves on young women and what their idea of love is, because this is absolutely NOT it.

Toxic Relationship. Very unrealistic book and the relationship between the two main characters is extremely unhealthy

Don’t buy it. Read it for free on Wattpad although I don’t recommend. It’s one of the most repetitive and frustrating books I have ever read.

amazing. i loved this book and usually not a reader but i couldnt put it down. One thing that annoyed me was the amount of times they would be finally getting somewhere and then go back to square one, dont get me wrong i like that but the fact that it happens a billion times pisses me off. All that aside thats the only thing i didnt like other than that its the best book ive ever read i loved it so much and to be honest its made me want a relationship like that so badly hahaha.

Lost for words ... amazing. I Could not put this book down! I felt every bit of their story - one I’ll never forget

Bad. Halfway through the book I stoped it was the same thing over and over again but the movie was great

Loved it!. wow just omg this book is soo good like u should read asap like fell in love straight away cannot wait for the movie!!!!

Couldn't put it down!!!. I know the hype of the book & now movie but wow this is a must read. Cannot wait to get through book 2 ☺️

Have Tissues!!!. Absolutely loved this book along with the rest of the series! Rips your heart out! Defiently wasn’t prepared to cry so much while loving every single page of it. Loved all the characters and how this could defiently relate to anyone at the same time. The relationship was real and raw and was dealt with the way you would if you were going through it. Has you hooked from the beginning to the end.

Amazing !. Oh my god! I am obsessed, literally could not put the book down ! I watched the movies and loved them so much I decided to invest in the books , which are just so much more !! If you’re considering reading then I highly encourage you to. You won’t regret it that’s for sure !!!

After. This maybe a series for teens & young adults but I’m much older & find it an exciting read , Hardin & Tessa are interesting characters & really suck you in to wanting to know how this ends ...enthralling !

Loved them. Absolutely loved this series , read all books in a week and half could not put them down. So sad to have finished them ,and loved the ending . Now I’m off to see the movie , can’t wait

Bad. It’s a bad with awful characters and storylines. This book deserves all the bad coverage.

A Must Read. Was hooked from the get go.. Didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I opened this book.. but literally couldn’t put it down until it was finished. Soooo good!

Loved it. I loved this book. Actually couldn’t put it down, and ended up reading the whole book in one night. The movie sucked though... they did not do justice to any of the characters.

Kazza3961. Really enjoyed this book, hard to put down! Left wanting more, will definitely be reading the rest of the series, I just can't leave it there,

After. Fantastic read. Hard one to put down!!

Stupid. Cool kiss you need to show a bum in the book

Amazing:)). Couldn’t put it down! I read it in one sitting. The characters’ love is very progressive throughout the book. They take time to grow!

Not great. Story is average, characters are boring and their actions aren’t believable. Not going to bother with the sequel.

Fanfic. This was basically a fanfic

This book changed me. I couldn’t put this book down. I read the entire series in less then a week. Hardins comped character, tessa’s need to be treated so poorly but come back. It fascinated me. While I don’t ever condone in any women being treated that way, I was drawn to the relationship and the sheer chemistry. I find myself devastated the book series is over. There is a hole now and I feel a bit empty. Thank you Anna for writing these series, and now maybe I can get back to my miracle little family ☺️❤️❤️. My husband will thank you for only writing 4 books 😂😂.

Whoopie doo. Everyone's saying they love this book, but to be honest I'm not sure about it, one minute I'm like finally their getting somewhere but than they end being back at square one again I mean Jesus it gets annoying and than there's Tessa who in all honesty bores me to death if I was a guy she would put my dick to sleep but in all that said it's still a pretty good book I suppose

After. I don’t understand how this became a top seller; bad grammar, typos etc... It was in need of some serious editing. I only managed 2 chapters before I’d had enough.

Felt this book in my soul, couldn’t put it down. Such a beauty do storyline. Anna you killed it with these books

Loveeee this book. I love this book so much , I had goose bumps the whole time reading it. I finished reading it in a week couldn’t put it down. Would 100% read this book :)))

Started from fan fiction now it's here 😝. I read this story on a one direction fan fiction website a few years ago and fell in love with it... It's so exciting that this amazing story came from something like that... Love love love it... It's brilliant when you read it a few more times because you notice little things that brings it to the conclusion of what happens in the end and your like ohmygod how did I not see it...

horrifying. this is awful. it is whiny and repetitive and brings up so many concerning issues around abusive controlling relationships etc. couldn’t finish it and regret wasting my money. the editing in this version is appalling as well

Wow. Definitely my favourite. The After series completely blew me away! I absolutely loved every minute of reading all the books! I cried, I laughed, I smiled, I felt their pain, truly an amazing writer!!!!

After. Absolutely incredible

Best book ever !!. This book was truely great, apart from the multiple inappropriate scenes, I absolutely loved it, it got me sitting at the end of the couch with my heart nearly falling out of my chest💗 and I’m sure after you read the whole series or just this book you’ll fall in love with hessa #hessa I 100% recommended this book with all my heart💗💗💗💗

Must read!. Never felt so emotional reading this book!

AMAZING!!. This book series is the most amazing series I have ever read!! You felt so many emotions while ready it, I could of swore it was actually happening to me! So many highs and lows to this story, you can’t put the book down! I read the entire series in a week and I can’t wait for the movie to come out!!!

Wow!! :). What a book!!!! Absolutely brilliant! Could not put it down!!!

amazingggg. i have never felt so connected to a book series ever, truely heart racing from start to finish. would be a favourite novel by far !!

Incredible and exciting. The after series was so catching that I couldn't put it down. All four books are amazing. The story line and the ways in which the characters develop provide the reader with ongoing entertainment and nail biting situations.... A definite read for anyone who loves a romance with its ups and downs. Five stars :) !!!

Best Book Ever!!!. Biggest bookworm out there and I couldn't put this book down. My favourite book I have ever read!!!

I CANT GET ENOUGH. I absolutely love this book with all my heart, it best book in the world. I can’t wait for the movie

My favourite series. After is such a beautiful book that has become one of my favourite series ever. I feel like I can relate to the characters and allow myself to relax when I am reading it. I love everything about this book and am so thankful for Anna Todd for writing such a masterpiece.

Love it. Love, love, love this series

Skin shedding and beautiful. Sadly I couldn’t buy it so I read the 55 paged sample in one go in one day and when It finished I literally shed my skin I really wanted to keep reading this. This book is beyond all the positive words in the world I really recommend it although it’s inappropriate and has swearing I’m only 11 and I really like it but as I said before I couldn’t buy it and it’s inappropriate.. I’m Muslim so It wouldn’t have been ok to read

Love this book. Watched the movie before discovering the book but the book has soo much more, more passion, more intensity. Love it!!

AMAZING!!!. Read this series about 5 times and it is amazing!!! Can’t get enough , the type of book where you can read over and over again and still experience every feeling again!! #HESSAFORLIFE

After, the book review. It was interestin’ and was quite different u know.😎

So good. I’m obsessed with this series I love it! Definitely worth reading!

After series. Amazing!!

Amazingly addictive. Just loved these books. Super easy to read and it's addictive! You can't help but love the characters and the thrill of this book

Pfft. Stupid book, stupid characters. Hardin is a jerk and Tessa is weak. Don't bother.

Just horrible. Apart from being repetitive, I’d hate for my teenage daughter to read this. There are so many abusive red flags in this relationship - violence, isolation, lies, controlling behaviour- yet she keeps going back to him because he makes her weak at the knees. Deep, deep sigh.

5th time reading. Best book i have ever read love it so much im reading it for the 5th time. Totally recommend!!!

BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!. This is the best story I've ever read. There are not even enough words to describe this relation complicated but so strong and true. This book literally changed my life and I can't be thankful enough to Anna Todd for what she's done to me just by writing this beautiful story. For those who haven't read After, I highly recommend. You'll see, your life will never be the same After…

OMG. Everyone is going to fall in love with it!!!!!!!!!!

Love it 😍😍😘. I love it 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😘 and only guy reading

Highly Recommended. Amazing book with an incredible message. Highly recommended for those who enjoy teen drama and romance. Anna Todd truly spills her heart and soul into writing novels her audience and fans will admire.

yyyyyaaaassssss. Cant wait for this book

My favourite book. I’ve been following along with Anna since she started posting After on wattpad, chapter by chapter! I love this book so much, and the whole series!!

.... I'm surprised there are only four comments... But then again, this book isn't really worthy of comment... Personally, I couldn't stomach the description... Let alone pay to read it. (I'm sure somehow this comment won't get through. No such thing as someone not liking a book apparently.)

Best Book I Have Ever Read. The first time I read After was 3 or 4 years ago. The second I opened that book, I couldnt stop reading it. It took me 3 days to finish it and 2-3 weeks to finish the whole After Series. It’s the best young adult romance you can read. It’s filled with plenty of realistic drama, its a modern relationship anyone can relate to and its so well written. Anna Todd is definitely one of the best authors of our generations and she is one of my absolute favourites. I would recommend After to anyone who loves a hot and steamy romance. SO SO GOOD 💕

WOOOW. Best book ever ! But the original is 100 better :)!!!!

AMAZING. I've read all the after books on wattpad and I absolutely loved them but I thought it was way too cheesy to keep #hessa I don't like how you kept the same ship name and I honestly just think it was better as a 1D fan fiction but I'm sure it's great as a normal book but I'll always love the original the most❤️ I'm glad it's all coming together for you though :)

Love after. I absolutely love this series.thank u so much Anna Todd for writing these book❤️

Amazing!. I couldn’t keep my hands off the book and was so engulfed in the whole series. Everything after reading the books was non-stop thinking about the books and relating every single song I heard to Hardin and Tessa. Absolutely fell in love with these books and felt like a part of the story. Anna Todd does an amazing job of writing both the plots and the steamy parts.

So so so good. So good gut wrenching I was up all night reading couldn’t put it down obsessed Way way better than the movie totally recommend the books over movies Could it be love #hessa

Awesome. Rate it 5 stars. This entire series makes you feel so much different emotions, in a good way. The story consumes you start to finish, I personally couldn’t think about anything except Hardin and Tessa. I couldn't stop reading and I have dyslexia so yeah it was really really good. Totally recommend it.

A great read!. The story between Tessa and Hardin will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Love it!. Can’t put it down!

Best book yet.. I actually finished this book, definitely could not put the book down. I had the physical copy though. I would carry it around my bag because I always took it out to ready it :)

Older Audience.... The story line is really good to this book but I would definitely recommend that websites and other sources change their ratings to rate this book R.

Bought the book and only got 46 pages. When I bought and downloaded this book to read, it only had 46 pages. After that it is telling me to buy and download the next book. When I look online the book is supposed to be 592 pages. Not sure what happened here.

Simply Phenomenal!. This is one of my favourite books of all time! Anna Todd does such a good job of making you feel happy, heartbroken, furious and captivated all at the same time. Tessa and Hardin’s love story is definitely one of a kind and one that I would highly recommend reading.

Five stars. This book was well written and something I really enjoyed reading. Seriously couldn’t put the book down and managed to read it all in two days:)

I can’t stop. I love this book series so much if you like romance and beautiful heart throbbing love this is the book for you. I’ve read it twice now and I’m still loving it.
