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?

    Okay, I haven’t been so completely consumed by a book series until this one. Literally from page one I haven’t put it down. Any free time I have is spent reading these books. I’m now on book 4 and will be starting again on book 1 after I finish book 5. You become so in love with the characters and how complex they are, especially Hardin. The mistakes he makes always seem unforgivable but the more you learn about his life and his past, you love him more and are constantly rooting for the two of them. I don’t write book reviews usually but if you’re looking for a series to completely consume your life for weeks then this is the one. I’ve never in my life read a book that made you feel like you were actually living the lives of these characters. You find yourself feeling every single emotion that they’re feeling. There’s times where I had to quit reading during a part that was devastating and I’d feel the devastation until I picked the book back up. I’m not sure how else to explain it. I’ve read a ton of romance novels but never one like this. I’ll be looking into more titles from this Author and PRAY they give me the ability to move on from this series!

    Not a bad read, but not a fan of paying $12.99 for a Cliffhanger.

    Oh I forgot to add. Anna clearly has something to do with the “high rating” it has. Clearly more than half her reviews are fake. If you want real ones, check amazon. Or you’re literally 12 years old.

    This is the worst book ever! They have the worst relationship! He is awful! How can she forgive and make excuses for him like that!

    Saw the movie and loved it, which lead me to read the book. I’m not even halfway through and I’m not sure how much more I can take. I would think it was written by a kid. The grammar and the things that are said sound like things my 11 year old would say. I’ve never known what it feels like to cringe reading a book till now. If you’re over the age of 16 I wouldn’t recommend
  • Absolutely loved it

    I read the story when she had first posted it and Wattpad and being the HUGE one direction fan I was, I absolutely loved it. Since publishing the series her work has gotten even better which is hard. I see a lot of reviews of people judging her for the way she chose the characters and how it was “teaching young females to stay in an abusive relationship” but I don’t think of it that way. Hardin was damaged. Tessa wanted to fix him, sometimes that’s hard but she was trying. If you read the whole series your aspect on this book will change, I promise you that.
  • Emotional rollercoaster but worth it

    Still have a book hangover. Takes you through every up and down but worth it in the end if you are a hopeless romantic
