Description

Experience the internet's most talked-about book, now a major motion picture, from Anna Todd, the writer Cosmopolitan called “the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation.”

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, and tattoos, 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?

    I’m late to the party, I stumbled across the film on Netflix recently. The cliff hanging ending fired up a desire to know how it ends between Tessa and Hardin. Wow. This story, makes me disappointed in the film at the level of detail they left out and how they changed the story. The book had me captivated and I read the whole series within a week. Am re reading the whole series. I’m in my 30s I felt so many emotions. Stirring up when I had my Hardin Scott. Every girl finds him on her journey to becoming a woman. It’s often that one you’re not looking for that consumes your whole soul.

    I wanted to read this after I watch both films , I can say the films explore little of what a world win relationship they have . I would totally recommend this novel as it explored more of their relationship and the ups and downs that come with it x

    The best book I have ever read. I have just finished reading the book and I am going to start reading after we collided straight away. The book just hooks you, I got so engrossed and just didn’t want to stop reading. It is the first book I have finished in a long time. I got that hooked in the book that it only toke me 1 week to finish it. Being honest it probably would have taken me less time if I wasn’t so busy.
  • It's just awful...

    One wrong button and accidentally got myself here, in hindsight I should've just deleted it but instead, I unsolicitedly wasted two and a half hours of my life on this piece or crap. What a way to spend your Sunday AFTERnoon.

    Absolutely hooked and couldn’t put the book down.. I’m already on the second book three days later... highly recommend! if you’ve read the book then I wouldn’t recommend watching the film! It irritated me because it doesn’t follow the book, Tristan is a girl and it’s either wrong or misses so many parts out or muddled in the wrong order.. ended up switching it off.. if your gunna make the film at least follow the bloody book!!
