Tessa has everything to lose. Hardin has nothing to lose…except her. AFTER WE COLLIDED…Life will never be the same. #HESSA After a tumultuous beginning to their relationship, Tessa and Hardin were on the path to making things work.

 Tessa knew Hardin could be cruel, but when a bombshell revelation is dropped about the origins of their relationship—and Hardin’s mysterious past—Tessa is beside herself. Hardin will always be…Hardin. But is he really the deep, thoughtful guy Tessa fell madly in love with despite his angry exterior—or has he been a stranger all along?

 She wishes she could walk away. It’s just not that easy. Not with the memory of passionate nights spent in his arms. His electric touch. His hungry kisses. Still, Tessa’s not sure she can endure one more broken promise.

She put so much on hold for Hardin—school, friends, her mom, a relationship with a guy who really loved her, and now possibly even a promising new career. She needs to move forward with her life. Hardin knows he made a mistake, possibly the biggest one of his life. He’s not going down without a fight. But can he change?

Will he change…for love? -

My review .. 4 Stars





Book Two takes off where book one left off. Except Hardin has more secrets -  Once again Tessa and Harden's   relationship is tried and involves  not only more forgiveness and time and  but learning to trust each other . 

Even though Hardin tries his best I am glad that the writer keeps his character true. He certainly does try to be the best he can . Along the way the characters develop and there relationship is taken to new levels. 

Anna Todd does a marvelous job of creating her characters with flaws and faults, but also in showing us the depth and definition of each characters. I am sure at times as a reader you want to strangle the characters and as much as Tessa loves Hardin the relationship is strained and always pulls at the heart strings.

Just because he can't love you the way you want him to doesn't mean he doesn't love you with everything he has."   

The story is told in Dual pov - which I appreciated as a reader being able to see the story from each point of view..  It gives us the reader insight into the feeling from both sides.

Tess and Harden are still learning how to trust and forgive . It seems the relationship still needs a lot of work , but it is undeniable that the love is certainly present and the relationship is not only volcanic but smoking hot. ** Sizzling **

The chemistry these two share is smouldering  . As a romance reader I enjoyed the sexy moments and I found it to be tasteful and tantalizing ;D 

The hotter the better I say ! These two certainly have it !

Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.   

Anna Todd is an author I will be certainly keeping an eye on . She  knows how to leave you frantically flipping till the last pages. Her stories leave me eager  and reading like a bat out of hell to find out where the story is going.

And  She knows how to suck you into the characters world  and then leave you feeling many things within the pages.

We feel many emotions within this story and I enjoy that this author is able to bring this forth. Her descriptions are vivid and her details well put forth.

The plot is solid, the characters are realistic and the pace is certainly riveting.

A must read series.

Keep an eye out for book three * After We Fell.**
