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?

    I bought this whole series hoping it would be redeemable. It’s not. It’s an unhealthy relationship from beginning to end. This is not a love story it’s a cautionary tale.

    Couldn’t put this book down for two straight days until I finished it, and now i’m dying to read the second book. Very well written and the characters are so well brought to life that you feel everything Tessa feels while reading the book.

    I’m not one for any sort of cheesy romance novels, or reading in general let’s be honest. But I’ve read this book 4 times through now, as well as finished out the whole series. I wanted to read them after watching the Netflix movie. Something about Hessa just completely captivates me. These books evoke so much emotion and caring for each of the characters. Truly a ride. AND — for those who say this book promotes toxic relationships and abuse needs to CHILLL... it’s a fictional book for god’s sake! Take it with a grain of salt. And further, if you can’t separate the real human that is Harry Styles, whom none of us actually personally know, from a fictional story character then that seems to be a personal problem. This clearly does not affect Harry’s reputation whatsoever. Appreciate a good story for what it is - a story. If you read the whole series, the characters really develop and grow, and you can see them mature. Regardless, this story tugs on your heart strings and it’s worth the read. Props to Anna!

  • Absolutely Horrifying

    I read this not realizing what it really was until later. Regardless, it’s terrible. For a lot of reasons, but for me, what he does to her, that betrayal is shocking and horrifying and completely not ok. It’s unforgivable. I don’t care how badly he feels after, if a guy EVER did that to me, I’d never forgive him. Young readers should not be shown that it’s ok under any circumstance. The book should’ve ended with Tessa moving on and maybe even away from that toxic, horrible group of people to find a healthy relationship and friendships. And if Hardin truly realized the error of his ways, he’d let her do that and he would work on making himself a better person. Get in therapy to address the things that made him willing to do such an awful thing and ever think it was ok to do that. There shouldn’t be a second book let alone an entire freaking series.
