CoheedLvr666 - Amazing even the second time around.
After watching the movie “After” on Netflix, I was hooked. I needed to know what was going to happen next, and couldn’t wait for the next movie. I’m not much of a reader at all, but that didn’t stop me from buying all 4 books. I read all 4 within a week. I couldn’t put it down. I laughed, cried, and felt heartache as if their pains happened to me. So much heartache. As soon as I finished all 4, I watched the movie again.
Fast forward a few months, the cycle repeated. I watched the movie again, simply because I missed it. Which in turn caused me to, once again, read the series all the way through. I just finished the last book, and it was if I didn’t read it before. I felt every emotion again. The laughs, the pain, the tears and heartache. But now that I’ve finished, tomorrow I plan on watching the movie once more as I did the first time.
As I mentioned, I’m not much of a reader, but this series was seriously amazing. It got a person who doesn’t read, hooked and wanting to read more. The author, Anna Todd, has a way with words; she’s an amazing writer. I have struggled to find another series to read that captured my attention the way this has. I will constantly keep a look out for anything else she publishes.
The only thing that hurt the most, was the time spent apart. I get it though, she needed to find herself. And he needed to find himself as well, in a different manner. But I felt like I missed out on so much in their lives. It felt rushed. I wanted to know if they got married, and how it went. How it was for them during their pregnancies. I would LOVE if another book was released to give us that. But if it’s meant to leave the reader to their imagination, I’ve never been good at that. Which is why I never read, but I try regardless.
Overall, I personally give this series a 10/10. I’m sure I’ll end up reading it all the way through again in the future. There were A LOT of ups and downs, but isn’t that life?
malwolf - Amazing book loved it
I had watched the movie about 10 times and finally realized that there was a book so I decided to read it and I do not regret that it was so amazing the best book that I have ever read I fell in love with all the characters and watched them grow as the books progress and Hardin does treat Tessa bad but he learns which made me fall in love with this book and the passion between these two were like no other book I have ever read I give this book rating a infinity/10
Ren217 - Good read but horrible relationship
I first saw the movie on Netflix and want to what it was all about. I enjoyed reading this book but similar to 50 shades the relationship that is shown between the main characters is messed up. I just hope young readers don’t think this is #relationshipgoals. Hardin is a total douche IMO and no body should idolize their relationship. I hope readers take it as a good read and that’s it. Seeing how other reviewers praise the love story is disturbing. This is dysfunction at it’s finest and shouldn’t be put on a pedestal. Most people know that you’ll always have a connection with the person who you lost your virginity to but that doesn’t mean you’ll end up with that person. I’m guessing they get back together which is baffling. People can experience passion in a loving and healthy relationship and shouldn’t think that toxic = passion. It’s the classic good girl falls for the bad boy. Bottom line, I hope other readers see it for what it is and don’t strive for something like it. That being said I will more than likely read the next book out of morbid curiosity to see what happens next.
R14456645 - Best Book Romance
Everything is perfect the way they are so different but still the same. The way is so real. Thats how a real relationship forms. With all the up and downs. With all the Passion and love. Really could not put this book down!!
Nily1001 - :(
I began reading this after watching the movie version and am pretty disappointed. Harden emotionally abuses Tess throughout the entire book to an extremity that I don’t think any woman should put up with. The author is an amazing writer but wow... I really wish she would have portrayed harden in a different way or maybe did chapters from his POV. Typically, when reading these types of books you eventually fall in love with the “bad boy” but not in this one.
Gabrillee - Gabrillee love
celisaa - love the after series
After is so much different from the movie; 100/10.
Z.oë - The most amazing thrilling romance book!
I found myself wandering here after watching the movie and I can’t put into words how amazing this book is. I would read the book a million times over rather than watching the movie
agagegeysgsceteyegeyduxhdvev - Like watching a car on fire
This book is like watching a car wreck in slow motion—you are horrified and yet you can’t look away. The writing is marginally better than 50 Shades but the plot is cyclical in a way that is nauseating. They don’t go anywhere, they don’t do anything, they mostly bounce around three locations and have sex/get into fights.
The sex scenes are the only good thing about this book—they emphasize consent and safe sex as well, which I think is a plus in books like these.
But the fighting—DON’T get me started. There are direct lines that Hardin says to Tessa that are straight up from the How to Be an Abusive Boyfriend manual. It’s borderline traumatizing—would not recommend if you have a history of DV.
Hardin’s character is not charming in any way—and his behavior seems almost like he’s got DID. His mood swings are annoying at best and downright terrifying at worst and the way Tessa deals with it and loves him unconditionally is just tiresome. After a certain point you just wish one of them would snap out of it and realize undeniable chemistry does not a true love make.
Hardin’s big reveal in the end of the book is gag-worthy and pushes him past the event horizon. The only way this book can redeem itself after this is by turning into a horror story where Hardin is the actual villain—because his behavior has all been leading up to that sort of ending.
The message from this book is “there are some people in the world who you love no matter WHAT they do to you, because that’s just the way it is.”
And I’m here to tell you that’s BS. Everyone has dealbreakers and Tessa’s infinite patience for Hardin’s evil behavior just makes her an unbelievable character and frankly, an unlikeable one too. “Caving to peer pressure because you are a gullible freshman” is a note you can only play so many times—yet Todd plays it over and over again. After a while, you just get fed up.
I will continue to read this book series for the sex scenes and hopefully Hardin gets what he deserves—to be nowhere near Tessa ever again.
Kathywathy sassybassy - After book review
This book is sooo good!! I read it in four days and it was amazing!! I can’t wait to read the second one.
Gorilla Grip Soraya - Great
Loved it, wasn’t my favorite from the series ONLY because i prefer both sided perspectives but if you’re into one sided I would recommend.
natalyasalim - highly recommend!!
such a great book! i finished it in just a few days, and was completely shocked with the ending, i loved it :)
Chesy Dominguez - Missing the last charter
I love this story so much I would say that I am obsessed with it, I just finished reading the first book here but I already read the hole story becauase I first bough the books on amazon. Going straight to the point I want to say that I am really disappointed of this book because the one that I bought on amazon has a chapter 98 where Hardin gives his point of view about how he felt when Tessa found out about the bet but this book doesn't have that chapter. This is the only reason why I giving 3 stars instead of 5 because that last chapter is really importar for the story and because I love to read Hardin's point of view!!!!
lolaelainee - Wow
I saw the movie, but boy was I in for a treat in this book, it was absolutely Captivating, I felt right there with the twin characters Tessa and Hardin the whole time, never missing a beat. It was awesome, truly breath taking... I cannot wait to see what’s next ❤️
Meliki33 - Team Hessa
I like how a lot of people are saying this book is horrible for teenage girls probably haven’t read the whole series. Hardin is a grade A dick if I was Tessa I would’ve ran but she’s a fixer and wanted Hardin to love him self as much as she did. Hardin made his fair share of mistakes but he has one of my favorite character developments. This series is an example of two young people finding out who there are how deep real love runs.
taylorstlll - Yikes
Is this what we are teaching tweens about relationships? Thought we were past this as a society.
B(a)E(dri) - UGH I LOVE THIS ENTIRE SERIES
I started reading this book after watching the movie because I loved the movie I knew I’d enjoy the books and enjoying the books is an understatement I FINISHED THE ENTIRE SERIES IN LESS THAN 4 DAYS!!!! This entire series has made me remember how much I loved reading as a young girl in highschool.
jjisn - It was ok
Well first of all it was an okay book I’m very proud of Anna but he is not rude like that in the movie.
brynneeeee - I love it so much it is so fun to read I woulfd
:D - Amazing
I love this series I have the books, audio books, and love the movie. I know people always say this promotes domestic abuse but it doesn’t. It shows two people growing together there young and they’re going to be dumb. It’s a perfect story for two kids in college. Proud of you Anna I have read from Wattpad and now. Will be look forward to movie #2!
mjr1727272 - Amazing
Tleewoods41o - Loved!
I absolutely love this book. I read all of the books so fast I couldn’t put them down. For the people saying it glamorizes abuse, it most certaintly does not. It really shows that people that had a bad upbringing and find it difficult to show love the traditional way can and will feel love again. It shows a brutal truth of a dysfunctional relationship of two people that don't give up on eachother.
savumont - LOVED
LOVED this series, I read the first book and then ordered the rest off amazon and couldn’t wait for them to come in and ended up buying them off here, finished After We Collided on here before the rest of the books even came in!!! I couldn’t put After down, i was up until 3am just reading, once i finished After had no idea they were even making a movie and it had came in theaters the week after i finished the 1st book so the timing was literally perfect. (this is a late review) i’ve read this series 3 times so far and the movie will never be as great as the books so if you’ve seen the movie please read anyways because i promise it doesn’t live up to this book.. (i still watch the movie on netflix on repeat tho) It’s going to be so hard to find a new book to read after these. :(
kaitlyn. h - After
I personally think this book is really good. I have been wanting to read this series for a very long time. And I was finna able to read the first book and I’ve only had it for a day and I’m almost through with it. It can be very ‘deatailed’ lol. But it is a really good read.
Nicolleeo - Understanding
it's raw and real and not an easy love story with one fight over miscommunication and then halt ever after. first of all, there are a bunch of reviews saying it displays poor behavior and direction for "little girls." this book is NOT for little girls.. i'm aware of the sex, addiction abuse and weird things in traditional books like Shakespeare but this is so sexually detailed i do not see how a 15 year old would be able to read this with parental consent? it's sex details are comparable to fifty shades.. also, if you think it's REAL emotional fights and experiences mentioned in it are THAT bad you have never faced life's hostility that some people have or you've had a good enough childhood and life to not know what trauma and experiences can put you through. if anything, book 5 first just so you can get a glimpse of what trauma can do to people. look deeper always. try to be understanding. Hardin isn't perfect nor is Tessa, they grow and evolve and it's a learning curve. i couldn't put it down
ASDSU - Addicting!
Reading this series was one of the BEST decisions I’ve ever made! I couldn’t put it down! #HessaForever
Smeadows11 - Love this
I absolutely love this Book! It popped up on home page so I thought what the heck this will pass time at work instead of music. I COULD NOT STOP LISTENING!! I finished it in 2 work shifts and immediately bought the second book! I only have 5 hours left of the second book and will be buying the 3rd before it’s over!! LOVE THIS WRITER AND THIS SERIES she leaves such great cliffhangers that leaving you buying the next book before you can blink! Amazing
Just a warning- this is language and rated R areas that you should allow kids to read. This to me is an adult book for sure but is amazing
fatimavillagrana - Real
Anna Todd shows the problems that some couples have to face. Not most, but some. This is the beginning to a mans beautiful conversion.
Chicagogirl73 - Awful
No one should read this series. I got through the first one but the second book? OMG! I don’t know how their are more books in this series. Its sets a horrible example for women.
omarlebron23 - Bad
Pjsiempre - Loved
I have read this series twice,and I love it every time a little bit more.
Bréézy260 - After compared to the movie
Amazing and a great love story ❤️
Elizabeth2273 - Amazing
Best book to read if you are a drama and romantic lover
JRizzo929 - Finished in 2 Days
Loved this book and really enjoyed the movie!
Sylv_ - Meh
This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning which is why I bought it & also because of its 4.5 star rating. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars because it did continue to hold my attention & when I picked the book up again, I couldn’t put it down! The book could’ve been written better & the characters were okay, however I wasn’t “in love” with this book.
I did read some of the previous reviews & a lot of people don’t agree/like the book because of “domestic violence.” I see their point, but it is also just a book written to entertain others🤷🏻♀️. I also think that Anna was trying to support Hardin’s character about being the “bad boy” that she is capturing him to be.
dhdbxbhdhbx - ANNATodd
I’m a new student at college so I can relate to this book, that’s my first time to go to college 😁😁 I’m in love with this book 📖 I’m honest
sparklefire32 - My Bible
I’ve read every single book of the after series .. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and surprisingly got hot lol!! They are the most amazing books I have ever read. I don’t think I’ve ever been so addicted to a book.. well .. maybe fifty shades but they come toe to toe together. All the blessings that come your way are well deserved. Thank you 🙏🏼
Lasha🖕🏻🖤❣️🤘 - Amazing
Amazing book. Well written book/series. 100% recommend
Quill Penkeys - Don’t, just don’t
I bought this whole series hoping it would be redeemable. It’s not. It’s an unhealthy relationship from beginning to end. This is not a love story it’s a cautionary tale.
raegs1 - After
Couldn’t put this book down for two straight days until I finished it, and now i’m dying to read the second book. Very well written and the characters are so well brought to life that you feel everything Tessa feels while reading the book.
EllieSlt - Amazing
Just awesomely amazing
liv_900 - WORTH THE READ
I’m not one for any sort of cheesy romance novels, or reading in general let’s be honest. But I’ve read this book 4 times through now, as well as finished out the whole series. I wanted to read them after watching the Netflix movie. Something about Hessa just completely captivates me. These books evoke so much emotion and caring for each of the characters. Truly a ride. AND — for those who say this book promotes toxic relationships and abuse needs to CHILLL... it’s a fictional book for god’s sake! Take it with a grain of salt. And further, if you can’t separate the real human that is Harry Styles, whom none of us actually personally know, from a fictional story character then that seems to be a personal problem. This clearly does not affect Harry’s reputation whatsoever. Appreciate a good story for what it is - a story. If you read the whole series, the characters really develop and grow, and you can see them mature. Regardless, this story tugs on your heart strings and it’s worth the read. Props to Anna!
savyclends - After
This book is addicting! I would want to stop everything just to keep reading highly recommend :)
evanhope17 - Love love love
I bought this book for my trip to my dads in November. I couldn’t put it down IT WAS THAT GOOD! I could relate to each and every character in so many different ways. I would recommend this masterpiece to anyone that would come across it. Thanks Anna for the wonderful read!
Emmymay90 - Absolutely Horrifying
I read this not realizing what it really was until later. Regardless, it’s terrible. For a lot of reasons, but for me, what he does to her, that betrayal is shocking and horrifying and completely not ok. It’s unforgivable. I don’t care how badly he feels after, if a guy EVER did that to me, I’d never forgive him. Young readers should not be shown that it’s ok under any circumstance. The book should’ve ended with Tessa moving on and maybe even away from that toxic, horrible group of people to find a healthy relationship and friendships. And if Hardin truly realized the error of his ways, he’d let her do that and he would work on making himself a better person. Get in therapy to address the things that made him willing to do such an awful thing and ever think it was ok to do that. There shouldn’t be a second book let alone an entire freaking series.
2skilled - A real page turner.
This book is hard to put down. From beginning till the end it just keeps you wanting to read just one more chapter.
Anshu Singare - Doesn't need attention
This doesn't need to exist
bri098789087 - Guilty pleasure
This book is like a good trashy tv show....it’s not great, sometimes it has flaws and it’s unrealistic but it is one to let yourself go, get lost in it and enjoy some guilty pleasure...for all the one stars grow up and go back to reading American girl doll books. I’ve read all the classics and even tried to read twilight/50 shades of grey (which I thought both had worse writing then After). I will say I don’t condone the abuse in it but hey it’s fiction/fantasy.....
Hessa Support - Absolutely Love 💕
I absolutely LOVE this. It is so heart warming and sad yet energetic and happy. It is an on edge of your seat type of the book. I recommend this to any lover of drama and heart break, as long as they can handle some intense “adult” moments.😉😉😉
atritch - New favorite series!
Couldn’t put it down! Read all 5 books in a week and even reread them which I never do! Highly recommend!!!

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.
Keeks❤️ - 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.
michaela_alexander - 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!!
alexbhabie - Love after
I absolutely love this series.thank u so much Anna Todd for writing these book❤️
Fhsjxnsjznsuxhsu - 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.
amandak43 - 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.
yojrj - 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.
MaryeTheUnicorn - 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 💕
TiaLee1999 - 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:)
Jord Styles - 5th time reading

Brooklynn3011 - 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 :)
HS798 - ...
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.)
AlannaJK04 - yyyyyaaaassssss
Cant wait for this book
benlabedaine63 - 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…
emstyles1D - OMG
Everyone is going to fall in love with it!!!!!!!!!!
KarlaRosell - WOOOW
Best book ever ! But the original is 100 better :)!!!!

Halfway through the book I stoped it was the same thing over and over again but the movie was great
Emma Drey - Bad
It’s a bad with awful characters and storylines. This book deserves all the bad coverage.
Hahstgsjxyxyahisuxyhsbhsjkx - Felt this book in my soul, couldn’t put it down. Such a beauty do storyline
Anna you killed it with these books
Happyapuser - 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 😂😂.
livs_reviews - So good
I’m obsessed with this series I love it! Definitely worth reading!
rippo123 - Toxic Relationship
Very unrealistic book and the relationship between the two main characters is extremely unhealthy
PhotosbyNess - Not great
Story is average, characters are boring and their actions aren’t believable. Not going to bother with the sequel.

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

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.

4425 #Australia - 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
Impressed reader - 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

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.
SRM194 - 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.
em1loo - After series
memesicktunes - 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.

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!!!

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
JulieG95 - 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.
kgarlett - 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!!!!
stephaniemoonstone - 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.
katelynbrooke98 - 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!
emmyA14 - 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
Chels.R13 - 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!!!!
shdgfhgDVLHASB - After
Fantastic read. Hard one to put down!!
LalaRylie - 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...
Kazzanne - 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,
Cccpppiiiddd - Love it
Love, love, love this series
Awesome1233toooo - 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
Hearts_Eden - Pfft
Stupid book, stupid characters. Hardin is a jerk and Tessa is weak. Don't bother.
Lil1992 - 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 :) !!!
Rordizzle - So underrated! BRILLIANT.
I loved this book when it was a 1D fanfiction on Wattpad, but now that it has been changed to a novel with different character names, I love it even more. This is absolutely brilliant! If you are a fan of 50 shades of grey, twilight, drama - you'll loooove this. Anna Todd, I give you 5 stars for sure.
Bowser Girl - After
I am a huge fan of One Direction but I find After absolutely horrible. Tessa is a desperate girl and 'Hardin' makes me gag. If I could remove two people from this book it would be Tessa and her stupid mother.
Guigujtydre - Amazing
This girl s one of the best books I've read get it and get hooked
1wowo1 - Wow
Wow...speechless - great read
My Person's Books - Roller coaster of emotions
Review by Six Chicks and Their Love of Books
When I first decided to start reading the After series I never expected to get wrapped up in the book so fast. I was hesitant to begin as I had heard mixed reviews, but I am so glad I started. This book was jam packed with a roller coaster of emotions. Anna did an amazing job portraying these characters emotions and how fragile they both are.
Theresa better known as “Tessa” is on her way to attend her freshman year in college. She is a kind, sweet innocent 18 year old with an overbearing mother and a boyfriend who is nothing but nice. Upon entering her dorm room for the first time Tessa is met with her very out here roommate Steph and her male friends who are nothing but unusual. Heavily tattooed and pierced, her mother is shocked that these ‘punks’ are who her daughter is going to be living with and is making it known how displeased she is. Tessa not wanting to cause any drama chooses to stay in the same dorm, after all how much time can they really spend together?
Hardin is a rough, rude and has a bad attitude to go with it. Assuming he knows Tessa from the moment he meets her, he is nothing but unpleasant, apparently he is that way with everyone or so she hears. After multiple run ins with each other and numerous arguments Tessa and Hardin find themselves spending time together alone, realizing that they have the same classes and the same love for great books; their friendship starts to become more.
The more time they spend together Tess grows to trust Hardin. But he is holding secrets in he didn't want anyone to know, especially Tessa. But like most, love is blind, it makes you believe things you never would have, trust people you never knew you would. Tessa is in too deep to realise what Hardin is doing to her. Her fiery personality and her questioning gets to Hardin and this is where their issues lay. He is unapproachable and his moods leave you with your head spinning but there is always that thing that brings you back to loving him at the same time. He has been through so much in his life and his relationships with this family are far from normal.
Hardin slowly starts to open up to Tessa and when he does, she learns why he is who he is, she chooses to approach things differently with him and slowly he starts to trust her more and shows her why she fell in love with him, but when she discovers the biggest secret that not only Hardin has hidden from her, but also her so called friends her betrayal is real and Hardin's deceit is unforgivable.
I really enjoyed this book. I found myself disliking both characters for their mistakes but at the same time reminding myself that they are both so young. Tessa has lived a sheltered life, where Hardin has seen the raw and gritty that the world really is. My heart broke numerous times for both of these characters and I wanted to wrap them both up and hold them. I am so excited to start book 2, After We Collide and see where their story is going to go from here.

amp1811 - SO GOOD. ADDICTING
Warning.. you will not want to stop reading. Like every book there was few parts redundant... and found myself so annoyed with Tessa at times.... but I was on the edge of my seat the whole book! The ending.... I honestly never saw it coming.
LuckiePerez - Couldn’t put it down!
I had no idea what I was in for when I began this series. I lost so much sleep because I was completely consumed by Tessa and Hardin! There’s so much heat! If you want an excellent book series to lose yourself in, look no further! You’ll fall in love over and over!
Darlin pineda - After
It’s a great book
Kaitlin55 - Prepare Yourself!
Okay, I haven’t been so completely consumed by a book series until this one. Literally from page one I haven’t put it down. Any free time I have is spent reading these books. I’m now on book 4 and will be starting again on book 1 after I finish book 5. You become so in love with the characters and how complex they are, especially Hardin. The mistakes he makes always seem unforgivable but the more you learn about his life and his past, you love him more and are constantly rooting for the two of them. I don’t write book reviews usually but if you’re looking for a series to completely consume your life for weeks then this is the one. I’ve never in my life read a book that made you feel like you were actually living the lives of these characters. You find yourself feeling every single emotion that they’re feeling. There’s times where I had to quit reading during a part that was devastating and I’d feel the devastation until I picked the book back up. I’m not sure how else to explain it. I’ve read a ton of romance novels but never one like this. I’ll be looking into more titles from this Author and PRAY they give me the ability to move on from this series!
Aliyah Fitzgerald - I love this book so much
I hope everyone reads or listens to this book.
averi Sue - One of my new favorite books
I LOVE these books! I read all in about 2 1/2 weeks. They are someone my new favs. I love how each character in the book is. They tell there own story, which makes me want to read more. I’ve enjoyed every single one!
Babette422 - Not worth the money
Not a bad read, but not a fan of paying $12.99 for a Cliffhanger.
lindsm1 - lindsm1
Oh I forgot to add. Anna clearly has something to do with the “high rating” it has. Clearly more than half her reviews are fake. If you want real ones, check amazon. Or you’re literally 12 years old.
Mysexylife4now - Excellent
Puertorican girl 1912 - What a toxic relationship!!!
This is the worst book ever! They have the worst relationship! He is awful! How can she forgive and make excuses for him like that!
Xoxoshay - Unimpressed
Saw the movie and loved it, which lead me to read the book. I’m not even halfway through and I’m not sure how much more I can take. I would think it was written by a kid. The grammar and the things that are said sound like things my 11 year old would say. I’ve never known what it feels like to cringe reading a book till now. If you’re over the age of 16 I wouldn’t recommend
erickaross - 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.
mylie marty - Emotional rollercoaster but worth it
Still have a book hangover. Takes you through every up and down but worth it in the end if you are a hopeless romantic
sydneegsmith - 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!
WhitleyWhite - 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.
ilbtsmta - Amazing
Loved loved loved this whole series! Came from Wattpad & I’m so in love with this series. Can’t wait for after we collided movie to come out!!!
Eli86 - Loved it
I loved this book.
1$8"/ - 🙄
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. 🙄
emmagood223 - 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😍😂)
vvbhyt - After
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.
Audrey D - HessaBinge
I read this entire series in a week while on vacation. No sightseeing done, but I got a nice tan and it was soo worth it!! Great read!!
gabyb11 - BEST BOOK EVER
It’s the best book I have ever read the whole book series was amazing. I never get tired of reading I literally read all the book like 7 times. I totally recommend these book and I can’t wait for the 2 movie to come out 🖤🖤🖤🖤 ♾ ♾ ♾ ♾
Mykesha🥰 - Loved it
I read this series a thousand of times on wattpad. Anna is a great author and I would love to meet her and get a signed book by her. She is one of my favorite authors in the world.Keep doing what you are doing. I hated the ending of this book but I guess it had to happen for her to continue with the other books. I recommend this book to alot of people who don’t just want the falling in love college romance.You want something very different then read the After series in order. You will love it, I loved it so I am about to read it all again. This is one of those series that you can read however much you want but always just start reading it the next day or week.The After Series will always be apart of me. I never been in those relationships in the book but I knew someone who did. She confided in me and I would never tell anyone who knew her about it. A secret is a promise and if you break it then that means you are breaking the trust someone told you in confidence becuase they though that you would keep there secret, your promise.
xoxo_jaz12 - Best book ever
I love the book it so good that it has so many good chapter. When the movie came out I didn’t like it I was hoping some of my favorite chapters was gonna be in there but there wasn’t
Mellzrivera - Stunning
I am beyond satisfied with the book and as for the movie I am completely disappointed. But I enjoyed the details, I felt like I was the character Tessa and it felt amazing
Gabbythereader - Absolutely the best book series I’ve ever read
This book is the best book in the series and This is my favorite book of all time. I still haven’t seen the movie yet but if you haven’t read this book yet, I HIGHLYYYY Recommend it. And for those who think it’s bad bc it’s saying it’s telling girls it’s ok to have a relationship with an abuser, you obviously haven’t read the rest of the books bc everything is explained and it’s not what it seems. Over the best book I’ve ever read Period
afterlover2 - Love it
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.
sophie24a - 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🤩
jaelynofficial - No words
Best book I’ve ever read I have no words
hardin_lover - Best book ever
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.
readtillidie - it’s not horrible
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.
SuneVee - My heart
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!!
Re-re_15 - 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.
hessa <3 - LOVE
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.
Rayna.G - 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!
LJHV032816 - Best series ever!
I could not put this book down! Loved the movie!
bkgh249 - Eek...
So, the actual writing is very good. There aren’t really any plot holes, and she’s very good at building a mental picture. HOWEVER. This story is telling two sides of a straight-up abusive relationship. If you’ve been there, you know how all-consuming it can be, so points for accuracy, but this isn’t the type of thing that little kids should be reading and modeling after. Again, really well-written, but the content and the way it’s portrayed is problematic.
De de 424. Maple street - This is awful
In the nicest way possible, this book is garbage. It’s nothing but boring repetitive nonsense, not to mention, it promotes toxic relationships.
To everyone saying “this book is amazing” or “this book is the best thing I’ve ever read” have you ever picked up a book in your life?You have classics like The Giver, Charlottes Web, heck even Lord of the Flies was more interesting than this. If you want to read a really amazing book may I suggest ANYTHING other than this.
thfygyb - Love it
This is a great book for young adults. It shows how some relationships can be. Through the good and the bad. Tessa and Hardin have an extremely toxic relationship and at times they are annoying af but, that’s also the real world and not every relationship is perfect. Not every book will be sunshine and rainbows. This book kept me on my toes and now I’m ready to read the next one in line.
Sweet.peareid - 🥰🥰🥰🥰
This book is amazing. Kept me on my toes the entire time. The writing is amazing.
yosyyythebest - After
Such an amazing book 💞💞
isa_otaku707 - Bland Storyline
Throughout the whole story, Hardin keeps being a jerk to Tessa and she ends up crying and then forgiving him; it’s the most annoying and repetitive thing I’ve ever read. Please yourself $12 and don’t buy this joke of a book.
Sw33thart - Amazing
This book is so intense I love it, I bought another book when I bought this but I can’t seem to get around reading it. I feel the need to finish this series I can’t stop thinking about what’s going to happen. So I ended up buying 2&3 lol
Hhhhhhhhaaaaffffdjaooenfhx - A Great Book
Couldn’t put this one down. The characters and atmosphere of this story stuck with me for awhile.
Obsessedwithmakeup - Love this
I could not put this down and I’m not even a reader like that I’m so obsessed I wanted to read it again and will when I’m done!!!! This is incredible.
kaylamarieEliz - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
When i first saw this book on Wattpad in my recommended list, i was slightly intrigued. I used to be such a huge fan of the one direction boys when i was in middle school (which was when they were at the height of their carrer) and constantly read fanfiction of them. I had started reading the Wattpad version not too long before i had heard of the movie. I am so glad that i started reading the book and i instantly fell in love with it. I am so proud of Anna Todd and all of the hard work she has put into this book and the movie as well. She is such an amazing author and an inspiration. Anna, i wish i could tell you in person about how proud i am of you. Your work ethic and incredible writing skills never fail to make me smile.
I didn't have the chance to go and see it in theaters, but from the little clips i've seen on Instagram in my feed it looks like a pretty gosh darn good film to watch. So i highly recommend that you read the book and maybe go see rhe movie with a group of friends, have a good time, laugh, cry, and enjoy! Please go and buy this or read it on Wattpad, and read the other books (after we fell, after we collided, & after ever happy; and the prequel called Before) and support Anna
Also to address those who are confused as to why Harry's name (and i think the rest of the guys' names) was changed to Hardin (Zayn to Zedd, and Liam to Landon): that is because you physically cannot publish FANFICTION so (i'm assuming) that the publishing company made Anna change the names so that they could publish it as a like normal, perhaps original, story
b.15.p - LOVED IT!
This was an awesome book! I could not stop reading it !
rosemaryromero - It’s a fan fiction!
This book is definitely not the most well written book I’ve read. I also do agree with other readers that the relationship was toxic and not something people should look for in real life. At the end of the day this is a Fan Fiction! I’m a fan of the drama even though it does get repetitive. I recommend this to anyone that won’t take it to seriously.
AMarie88 - Love!!!
I couldn’t put the entire series down! Also, go see the movie<3 Loved it so much.
D_L_B - BEST BOOK
BEST BOOK IVE EVER READ, I normally hate hate hate reading but this got me to read constantly. I definitely recommend it !!
Kk27zzz - ?
I would like to see a review from a person who didn't read this on Wattpad or is a One Direction fan.
Mellyhx - After
This books so good!!!
riittz - BEST BOOK I READ ON WATTPAD
Honestly he beat fanfic written!! I recommend it to EVERY TEENAGER
Except why is his name Hardin ?? It was Harry on wattpad 😪
BUT STILL A FANTASTIC READ 🙌
B1387 - Best read
Addictive! I couldn't stop reading it. Now I'm counting down for the next book in the series!
Xena Au - For the Lovers
This book was great! Could not sleep because I wanted more and more of this story. Can't wait for the next!
sarahmerifield - AFTER
I think I'm going to cry. Anna Todd is an exceptional writer and fangirl, and might I add, I've been reading her books since she first updated chapter one of After on Wattpad. Anna Todd's 'After' has been the centre of my life for a year, or more, now. My whole world revolved around reading this immensely popular series, from staying up too late, to setting early alarms just so I could read the next chapter, and the next. Her writing style is inspirational, and I aspire to being a great writer like her in the future. Hardin (Harry) and Tessa's relationship has ruined and completed my life so far, and I would just like to give Anna Todd a giant thank you. Keep writing Anna! I look forward to reading more of your work. Lots of love from Australia!
Liberty kent - Best book ever
I love the book it's the best series ever. And anna ur amazing at writing. I hate how you had to change Harry to Hardin but I will still read it as Harry and the boys no matter what it's the best
Emaleih :) - AMAZING!!!!!
This book series is fantastic, I don't think I even have the words to describe how amazing this series is. It began on wattpad as a fanfiction and as a one direction fan you are mesmerized by the storyline and characters. You wish you were apart of the book and just gets you hooked. You can not put it down! I was up until all hours of the night and ignoring my family and boyfriend because of this book it is just incredible, thank-you Anna for writing this!
BSMQ - Love it
It is the best book I have read. Please encourage Anna as she has written the best books. Also if u want to see it in harry styles point of view, go on wattpad
Renee Hardy - Best Book📘
This is the best book i have ever read.
#hessaforever - Addicting!!
I read the whole series on wattpad, and I'm in the process of reading Before. And I can honestly say that this is my favourite series! I used to sit up late on school nights, when I'm supposed to be sleeping, reading or waiting for Anna to update!! I love this book so so much and I love you Anna! Please buy it, you wont regret it!!!
like i'm not even joking - Reading this is a must!
I'm currently reading the online version for the second time. i was there from the very first chapter and i was certainly there for the very last! i've been on an emotional rollercoaster during this book. it truly is amazing!
after is a must - After is the greatest thing that will ever happen to your life
okay so i read the online series of after and they are honestly the greatest books ever! i could not stop crying- like literall drowning in tears and looking like a camel kind of crying. i love it so so so so so so so so so so so much and am currently rereading it for the third time. ugh, Anna i love you. tessa i love you and whoever H has been changed to- i love you. BUY IT EVERYONE
Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvqxyz - Its life changing!!
this book is originally published on Wattpad. If your a one direction fan this is the book to read. It is so amazing and anna is an amzing aouthor and becoming very well known for her online published worl.
