After, the international bestselling contemporary romance from Anna Todd is available now!!
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?

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Okay I have seen some pretty hateful reviews for this book. I was a little nervous going in after seeing them. However, I was intrigued by the story and I wanted to be able to form my own opinion.
I am actually really glad I did, because I did enjoy it. It was really addictive. It made me want to read the next books in the story.
I am giving it a three star rating because I did have trouble relating to and liking the characters a lot of the time. I thought that at times, they should not have been together, which is not something I normally find myself thinking of the main characters in a story like this.
However, it kept me completely interested and wanting to find out what happens next. I found myself clicking on the next book in the series. I will definitely be reading it soon.
