There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything AFTER
Life will never be the same…
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, her mother’s worst nightmare. With his tousled brown hair, irresistible British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is undeniably attractive but completely different to what Tessa is used to.
But he’s also rude – to the point of cruelty, even. Tessa should hate Hardin, and she does… until she finds herself alone with him in his dorm. His dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss, something 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 without a word. 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, but every time she pushes back she winds up being pulled further in.
Will Tessa risk everything for someone she can’t trust?
I first came off across this series after I randomly picked the movie at the theaters and left with a million questions. I have always been a sucker for romance, but this series ignited something inside me that I never knew I longed for… lusty bad boy romance.
When I found out the movie that left me frustrated with questions was a book series, I instantly jumped on it. 2 days later full of reading and no sleep and I was HOOKED.
Hardin Scott ruined me in the best way & I found myself craving my own personal Hardin. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this series. It was real, raw, steamy and heartbreaking in one beautifully twisted love affair.
I think what really made me fall in love was how untypical it was. Most romance novels I had read had always been the same… Boy meets girl, something small happens, they get back together and live happily ever after. After wasn’t like that; it hit home and hit on real topics and showed how imperfect love is but also how beautiful it is when two souls find each other in this chaotic world we live in.
If you want to read a series that is going to break your heart but also mend it, highly recommend checking out the AFTER series by Anna Todd. The first and second movies are currently out in the US so go. watch. now!
