Now a major motion picture! Experience the internet's most talked-about book from Anna Todd, the writer Cosmopolitan called “the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation”—now with new exclusive material! 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, and tattoos, 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 decided to read this series after watching the first 3 films. Although this story hits a little too close for home, I enjoyed getting to experience the full uncut story from start to finish. The toxicness of Tess and Harding relationship has you screaming at times, but then cheering for them at others. You will have a love-hate relationship for the pair…until the final chapters."
"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It reminded me a bit of 50 Shades. For me, Hardin was really difficult to like even as his character softened in the end. His tantrums when he didn’t get his way annoyed me. This didn’t change much throughout the whole story for me, I thought he was a jerk and I felt bad for Tessa. She deserves better. The ending had me absolutely furious for her. That being said, I’m excited to read the next. "

"Wow I don’t even have words. I couldn’t put this book down. I’ve never been happier that I bought this series all at once so I can keep going. Loving someone so much that you can’t just stay away even though it’s such a toxic relationship. While my experience is nowhere near as extreme, the emotions of this book are so relatable"
