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?

    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.
  • Amazing !

    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!!
  • Anna Todd you are a genius

    I can’t explain how this book series has captured me, I read the whole 5 books in 10 days and when I wasn’t reading it, I was imagining what would happen next. Endless nights of checking the time and see I’ve read into the early hours of the morning where I just couldn’t stop reading. I watched the film on Netflix before knowing about the books and thought it was good but it wasn’t until I read the books that I was captivated by Tessa and Hardin’s relationship and the push and pull of their love for each other. I don’t read romance books usually but I genuinely felt heartbroken when I finished the last page of the book. I CANNOT WAIT for the next movie to be out and I just HOPE it sticks to all the details in AWC! I found myself stalking instagrams of the cast and just hoping that it comes sooner than I think. Best £25 I’ve ever spent 😂 I know one day I’ll re-read them all again and I honestly can’t wait! Thank you Anna, so much!!
  • Best books ever

    In love with these books! I read them all within 9 days! I just couldn’t put them down. I watched the film first but after watching it I just knew I had to read the books and I’m so glad I did! I can honestly say these are the best books I’ve ever read. I fell in love with #hessa almost instantly and the bond between them was something else. I cried, I laughed and I grew with the characters through all the twists and turns of the story. I can’t recommend these enough and I plan on going back and re-reading them again and again. I’m so excited for the second film and more to come out!! All I can say is THANK YOU ANNA TODD❤️x
  • AMAZING!!!!!!

    I loved the movie so I decided to read the book and the book is 10x better. I am a 13 year old teenager and I NEVER READ however this book is that good I was reading for hours straight!!! I see many people hating on this book and I have no clue why and them mentioning emotional abuse but if anything it has taught me about it and in my eyes I do not see it as promoting it! People also are forgetting about Hardins childhood like I’m not surprised he’s the way he is and this story is about not just Tessa but also about him trying to be a better person (except from the dare) and starting to trust and let people in again most importantly loving again ! I have already bought the second book and I’m about to start reading !!!
  • Hot, romantic and dramatic

    Don’t waste your time. Trying to be as good as Fifty Shades but failing miserably. So bored of the back and forth between the 2 characters I gave up.
