Now with new exclusive material!

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?

Best Book Ever! Please Read, and see After in theaters

Best book ever! Shows the realism in a relationship instead of the fantasy. I love Anna todd as an author and she writes amazing books. She’s an inspiration! My favorite is for sure Hardin and Tessa!💜💜♾ an amazing author and mother, she’s the woman I idolize the most.

Very Disappointing

This is nothing more than a toned down version of “Shades of Gray”—very weak and juvenile plot. Way too much racy sex that was fine in the beginning but very tiresome later on. I kept waiting for the plot to develop but sadly, it didn’t. Sorry I wasted my time and money on this one.
