Tessa and Hardin have defied all the odds, but will their fairy tale ending be turned on its head? After Ever Happy…Life will never be the same. #HESSA

It’s never been all rainbows and sunshine for Tessa and Hardin, but each new challenge they’ve faced has only made their passionate bond stronger and stronger. But when a revelation about the past shakes Hardin’s inpenetrable façade to the core—and then Tessa suffers a tragedy—will they stick together again, or be torn apart?

As the shocking truth about each of their families emerges, it’s clear the two lovers are not so different from each other. Tessa is no longer the sweet, simple, good girl she was when she met Hardin—any more than he is the cruel, moody boy she fell so hard for. Tessa understands all the troubling emotions brewing beneath Hardin’s exterior, and she knows she’s the only one who can calm him when he erupts. He needs her.

But the more layers of his past come to light, the darker he grows, and the harder he pushes Tessa—and everyone else in his life—away. Tessa’s not sure if she really can save him—not without sacrificing herself. She refuses to go down without a fight. But who is she fighting for—Hardin or herself?


  • The best of the 4. Emotional

    By jennie parent
    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. This is my favourite of them all. It made my stomach churn at the possibility it’s title isn’t necessarily the narrative. It made me cry. Don’t watch the films they cut far too much out and change the powerful love of Tessa and Hardin out. Keep them in your own mind.
  • One thousand percent recommended

    Absolutely loved this series so much. It’s affected me more than I could of ever imagined and made me think about my own life and choices more than I could imagine. Can’t wait to see the next two films
  • Amazing!!

    By Rmj19
    It all started when I watched the after film on Netflix and I thought let’s try the book, I managed to read all the books in 2 weeks, I was hooked. Amazing books and I would love to read them all again! There was parts that had me screaming at my book and there was parts where it genuinely brought tears to my eyes. I wish there was more.
  • Wow

    By Xjehyoggehsgghj
    I decided to read the first book after watching the movie on Netflix..oh boy did I not realise that 2 months later I would be here finishing book 4. I could not put it down. Looking forward to waking up early to squeeze in 15 mins before having to leave for work or getting it out whenever I had a few minutes spare. Had me on the edge of my seat. I remember reading tense bits and the suspense building up inside of me was unexplainable. The book had me so captivated.I loved every chapter, every page and every word... Was so happy to get the ending I was hoping for from reading the very first book. The last few chapters of this book made me cry and laugh out loud and feel such excitement. I can’t recommend this book series enough. I thought the movie was brilliant but the books offer so much more than that. The journey of the characters is so unpredictable and the challenges they faced seemed impossible!! Read the god damn book! I imagine if you’re reading reviews for book number 4 I’m sure you’re in love with it just as much as I was. Thank you Anna Todd.
  • Captivating, Addictive, Real ❤️

    By Han ✨
    By far the best book collection I have read, I was hooked from the very beginning and struggled to put them down. From the story line to the way the characters are portrayed, every aspect has been perfectly executed. As an author, Anna captivates the raw emotion of each character in a way that you feel connected and part of a journey that you get to witness unfold as you become deeper and deeper into the reality that is After. As the reader I found my emotions became invested in the whirlwind that is Hardin and Tessa. I was pleasantly surprised how relatable the story is and the power an amazing book can have.
  • The ending my heart wanted ❤️

    By Meg.Aston
    I have just finished this book after reading from the beginning of this journey. As my title describes this was the ending I wanted and thrived for when first starting this adventure. I am so happy that Hardin and Tessa got the ending that both of them deserves at one point I feared the worst that this would never come but I so happy they did that I couldn’t deny I didn’t shed a tear at the end. I think the books throughout do make us value the true meaning of a love story, but a different one where you don’t just hear the happy tales you read the real struggles of what love can make you do and feel. In this day and age you don’t really get to see the true meaning of love, everyone is so quick to throw each other a side and this warmed my heart to know that people can still fight for the love their desire and get it in the end. This isn’t a true story no.. but it helped to give me a sense of love that I desire. Every time I read these books I get drawn in and it takes me away from normal day to day life that can eat away at you and makes me appreciate what I have. When reading these books I always felt there in that very moment with both characters, felt their raw emotions that is proof to how incredible this read was for me. Thank you Anna for these special reads - you should be so proud of what you have accomplished. I recommend anyone to give these a read you will not regret it! Though I am happy and feel pride to have read these series of books there is always that little bit of sadness when you come to an end of a captivating story. 🤍
  • Amazing!

    With in a week I have read the full after series and I can honestly say I have never been pulled in by a book series like that, the story is absolutely breathtaking. Never have I cried so many tears over a series before.

  • Love this book.

    By ciara_c4
    When reading this book, I really became the story. I’ve never cried happy and sad tears so much while reading. Despite it being really infuriating, I kept on reading and I fell in love the after series and all the characters in it. I would definitely recommend reading.
  • Utter perfection

    By BethHoeyy
    Well I have finally read the full after series after only 2 weeks may I add ( sad but when you read you’ll understand) all I can say is THANK YOU ANNA TODD, thank you for making me laugh, cry and smile, but most importantly thank you for making me fall in love with love again.. I’m not one for reading I have read the Harry Potter, 50 shades etc but never have I connected with a book in such a way. Tessa and Hardin have completely stole my heart and I can’t wait for the movies! Round of applause to this amazing author for giving me a devotion to reading again.. I can’t thank you enough ♥️
