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?

    Amazing All I can say is that it’s amazing. This book has kept me on the edge of my seat since I started reading it. The love between Tessa and Harden is so amazing yea the have there downs but it’s true love.
  • Couldn’t Finish

    By KatieTooCold
    I started reading this book a few years ago. I’ve attempted to read it three time now and I STILL can’t finish it. It’s repetitive. The constant push and pull of the two main characters frustrating. The main guy is annoyingly moody and the main girl is easily taken advantage of by him. I literally can’t even finish this book because I get so bored of the back and forth argumentative dialogue between the characters where they just pick fights with each other. I’ve read over half the book and yet there is no climax and certainly no resolution. I have more negative points to make about this book but I’m not a writer so I will stop here.

    This series is seriously the best. I’ve read them all multiple times & it feels like the first time, all exciting and curious to know what happens next👀 More than ready for this movie to come out!!!
  • Great book

    @ everyone saying this book is about abuse, degrading women, or whatever else, has NOT read this book or the original. If you think that this book promotes abuse then you’ll need to google the word because I’ve read all 3 of the books and I totally love it. It has the truth about college, the fake friends who set you up, the twists (which are pretty crazy) and the couple who bc they put others opinions get in between them they break each other’s hearts, but in the end, they learn that it doesn’t matter because no matter how different they are, they’re both the same.

  • No thank you.

    I wish I could give it no stars. I never say anything like this but this book is the worst book I’ve ever read. I made myself finish it in hopes it would get better. The constant stupid fighting throughout the entire story was exhausting and stressful.
