Description

Now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd’s After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the Internet’s most talked-about book for yourself!

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?

  • Actually disgusting

    This book is absolute trash. It’s full of abuse and toxic behaviors that are being glorified as a perfect relationship. I’d give 0 stars if possible.
  • A Great Book

    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

    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.
  • Love!!!

    I’m looking at all of these reviews that say that this book is terrible when in truth it is not. My friends and I all love the series. I’ve read the entire series and am completely in love with the story between Tessa and Hardin. I will admit that the back and forth is rather frustrating at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way. These books are amazing and the emotional rollercoaster is so worth it. As I was telling a friend you will go from laughing to screaming at the characters to bawling your eyes out in seconds. I will say KEEP READING. It gets soooo much better that you have to continue to the next books! ❤️
