Genre: Contemporary Romance
After, the international bestselling contemporary romance from Anna Todd is available now!!
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?

There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything AFTER ... Life will never be the same.
Tessa Young couldn’t wait to go to college. It’s her first chance to truly spread her wings without the interference of her overprotective mother.
She has everything mapped out and it’s all going according to plan. Until she meets a boy whose soul is as black as the ink that’s etched into his skin.
Hardin Scott is the very definition of a player. He’s left a string of broken hearts all around campus and he makes no apologies for it.
He’s violent, he’s rude and he’s heartbreakingly beautiful. But there’s something about him. Something that lurks just under the surface that Tess can’t seem to stay away from.
It all comes down to one moment. The moment that Tess finds out that nothing is as it seems. Hardin isn’t really her dark angel – he’s the devil in disguise.
“Do you remember when you asked me who I love the most in the world?” he asks, his lips inches from mine.
With After, Anna Todd has quite possibly penned one of the most addictive New Adult romances in history! It’s the combustible combination of longing, desire and sheer anguish that had me devouring every one of the 582 pages with a wild ferocity.
It’s no wonder that this series is such a phenomenon. It’s a bright shooting star across the conventional literary sky…
