    Book Three of the After series—now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd’s After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe.

     Experience the Internet’s most talked-about book for yourself!Tessa and Hardin’s love was complicated before. Now it’s more confusing than ever. AFTER WE FELL…Life will never be the same.

     #HESSA Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim. Tessa’s life begins to come unglued. Nothing is what she thought it was. Not her friends. Not her family. The one person she should be able to rely on, Hardin, is furious when he discovers the massive secret she’s been keeping. And rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage.

    Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss—but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together. But if Tessa follows her heart now, will it be…the end? -

    This series by Anna Todd will consume you at  every page. A smoothly delivered storyline , and at 834 pages long   I  know I am in for a roller coaster ride before I even open the first page.

    The author knows how to weave her magic within the pages. The series is huge - the books massive in length but I find that nothing is over stepped, everything within the pages is relevant and wonderfully delivered.



    After we Fell picks up where the last book After We collided ends. You are taken on a ride within this story, heartache, angst, love, growth and an anger that will leave you antsy.

    The characters are still learning in there relationship, it seems to be a constant battle with secrets and jealousy .. Arguing, and it seems to be going in the same direction on repeat. But saying this they both are learning - in there own ways.

    Certain parts can get frustrating - You have to wander if this pair will ever get where they want to be.


    They sabotage the love and relationship by repeating past mistakes over and over.. Its like a viscous circle.

    This does create interest for me -  the reader - as I can understand the frustration.  We see a darker side to Harden in this book. His anger makes him do things he certainly knows he shouldn't. His actions always have a consequence. * this will make sense when you have read the book *

    Tessa seems to also be in a tizzy in this book - she made some really stupid decisions, I as a reader just shook my head over and thought WTF !!! It seems we think Harden is always to blame but in this book you really have to wander they both seem to be as bad as she each other lol.

    KEEP READING ! I TOLD MYSELF even though I was pissed off at a certain part.

    Even though this book is filled with angst ,hurt, heartache we also see a growth within the characters. 
    (Depth or course and definition into them.) Maturity and growth plays a strong part.

    The love they share is evident - and in the end we do see Hardin make some choices which I found quiet profound. He always seems the weaker link in this relationship but ultimately his love and support take over .. He realizes what he must do to show the one person he loves the most.  Cliché I know.


    I love the inner dialogue from Tessa - it gives us depth into her love for Harden and she really does try to understand him and love him even as damaged as he is. And she knows that it is her that he will only ever truly love. ** heart patters **

    After We Fell  is my favourite so far  in the series to date.

    I love Hardin's flirting and dirty lingo , his stupid comments and banter it always put a grin on my face and I am sure while reading I have that sheepish look on my face (haha. ) Despite the character he is you can't but fall in love with him - a damaged man finding his way around love. With his strong points and weak ones to boot.

    Anna Todd weaves a delicious tale of love, filled with many moments that will leave you with your mouth agape.

    She brings out every emotion possible within the story , from tears, to swoony drooly moments to anger where you silently curse the stupidity of the characters.

    A roller coaster ride so to speak with a WTF ending that will leave you wanting more !!




    Heart-wrenching, romantic, and simply un-putdownable.


    Thank you to Simon & Schuster Australia for providing me with this book for my honest review.
