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, 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?

    I began reading this after watching the movie version and am pretty disappointed. Harden emotionally abuses Tess throughout the entire book to an extremity that I don’t think any woman should put up with. The author is an amazing writer but wow... I really wish she would have portrayed harden in a different way or maybe did chapters from his POV. Typically, when reading these types of books you eventually fall in love with the “bad boy” but not in this one.

    I found myself wandering here after watching the movie and I can’t put into words how amazing this book is. I would read the book a million times over rather than watching the movie

    This book is like watching a car wreck in slow motion—you are horrified and yet you can’t look away. The writing is marginally better than 50 Shades but the plot is cyclical in a way that is nauseating. They don’t go anywhere, they don’t do anything, they mostly bounce around three locations and have sex/get into fights. The sex scenes are the only good thing about this book—they emphasize consent and safe sex as well, which I think is a plus in books like these. But the fighting—DON’T get me started. There are direct lines that Hardin says to Tessa that are straight up from the How to Be an Abusive Boyfriend manual. It’s borderline traumatizing—would not recommend if you have a history of DV. Hardin’s character is not charming in any way—and his behavior seems almost like he’s got DID. His mood swings are annoying at best and downright terrifying at worst and the way Tessa deals with it and loves him unconditionally is just tiresome. After a certain point you just wish one of them would snap out of it and realize undeniable chemistry does not a true love make. Hardin’s big reveal in the end of the book is gag-worthy and pushes him past the event horizon. The only way this book can redeem itself after this is by turning into a horror story where Hardin is the actual villain—because his behavior has all been leading up to that sort of ending. The message from this book is “there are some people in the world who you love no matter WHAT they do to you, because that’s just the way it is.” And I’m here to tell you that’s BS. Everyone has dealbreakers and Tessa’s infinite patience for Hardin’s evil behavior just makes her an unbelievable character and frankly, an unlikeable one too. “Caving to peer pressure because you are a gullible freshman” is a note you can only play so many times—yet Todd plays it over and over again. After a while, you just get fed up. I will continue to read this book series for the sex scenes and hopefully Hardin gets what he deserves—to be nowhere near Tessa ever again.

    I love this story so much I would say that I am obsessed with it, I just finished reading the first book here but I already read the hole story becauase I first bough the books on amazon. Going straight to the point I want to say that I am really disappointed of this book because the one that I bought on amazon has a chapter 98 where Hardin gives his point of view about how he felt when Tessa found out about the bet but this book doesn't have that chapter. This is the only reason why I giving 3 stars instead of 5 because that last chapter is really importar for the story and because I love to read Hardin's point of view!!!!
