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?

    So, the actual writing is very good. There aren’t really any plot holes, and she’s very good at building a mental picture. HOWEVER. This story is telling two sides of a straight-up abusive relationship. If you’ve been there, you know how all-consuming it can be, so points for accuracy, but this isn’t the type of thing that little kids should be reading and modeling after. Again, really well-written, but the content and the way it’s portrayed is problematic.

    In the nicest way possible, this book is garbage. It’s nothing but boring repetitive nonsense, not to mention, it promotes toxic relationships. To everyone saying “this book is amazing” or “this book is the best thing I’ve ever read” have you ever picked up a book in your life?You have classics like The Giver, Charlottes Web, heck even Lord of the Flies was more interesting than this. If you want to read a really amazing book may I suggest ANYTHING other than this.

    This is a great book for young adults. It shows how some relationships can be. Through the good and the bad. Tessa and Hardin have an extremely toxic relationship and at times they are annoying af but, that’s also the real world and not every relationship is perfect. Not every book will be sunshine and rainbows. This book kept me on my toes and now I’m ready to read the next one in line.

    Throughout the whole story, Hardin keeps being a jerk to Tessa and she ends up crying and then forgiving him; it’s the most annoying and repetitive thing I’ve ever read. Please yourself $12 and don’t buy this joke of a book.

    This book is so intense I love it, I bought another book when I bought this but I can’t seem to get around reading it. I feel the need to finish this series I can’t stop thinking about what’s going to happen. So I ended up buying 2&3 lol

    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
