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?

Finished it to fast :(5 star

After the second movie came out on Netflix I decided to give them ago. I couldn’t help but want to read the books after that, and now I’m left sad because I can’t find anything as interesting as this to read! It took me 5 days to read the first 4 books, and I’ll read the 5th book as soon as it arrives! I couldn’t sit down, I couldn’t sleep. The only bad things I have to say are - I wish there were more books in the series, and the end is a little rushed :( regardless I fell in love with these books and all of my friends that I have (nicely) pressed to read the series have too! Well written, and you fall in love with the love story. Very well done and will be one of my all time favorites!55


Great Read5 star

The Movie brought me to this book! I’m just going to put it like this. I read the first book in three days. Then I went to barns and nobles and brought the rest of the books. This book is a really good read. The writing is so good I couldn’t put it down. I was so into this book I didn’t talk to anyone for three days. I can’t wait to finish the second one. I do love how the book is so detailed about everything. I kept the book in my purse in case I had a moment to read it I couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to see how how Tessa and Hardin move forward with there lives in the second book.55



I loved this book and I read it in a whole day. That’s saying a lot because I don’t even like to read lol! The story line has me wanting more and more! Edited: (I finished the series a year ago but I wanted to add on) This series was my all time favorite for the longest time! I read and read them like crazy! They are so addictive, you seriously can’t get enough! These books made me cry, laugh and cringe. I will forever love Hardin and Tessa.55

So lame1 star

This is such a lame book15


Terrific!5 star

I’m a late reader, I’ve only recently seen the movies. But, my oh my. To my surprise the books are just as good and the movies compare wonderfully.55


A good read but be careful if abuse triggers you4 star

I really liked the movie but like most, the book is better. There’s so much more to Tessa and Hardin’s relationship that we get to experience in the book. I will say I think it would be wise to put a trigger warning on this series. To put it lightly Hardin is abusive, manipulative, and controlling. I know we see some of that in the movie but you get his full character in the books and it’s so much worse than I realized it would be. If you’ve been in or around an abuser like him this could be a difficult book/series to read. The first book wasn’t too difficult for me but the second book is proving to be too familiar for my comfort.45


Best book5 star

LOVED. IT. I can only wish that the movie was 1/2 as good as this book!!!55


Best book ever5 star

I never read any books, I normally end up putting them down after reading a few chapters. I have read this entire book in 3 days. I highly recommend everyone to read it. It is different than the movie but just as great.55
