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!

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?

Too much violent drama2 star

This book was redundant, always him destroying property, being mad, drunk, emotional. If my guy acted like this I would put him in a loony bin. The next book is not better either... oh well I’m too the next, hopefully this’ll next read has a plot that isn’t so weird. 25


Amazing4 star

This is one of those books you would read during a snow day with fuzzy socks on with a hot chocolate on your lap lol :). The author hits every turn you’d want to happen.. it’s kind of a cliche but overall I loved it! 45


Love!!!5 star

Love the series! Read them on Wattpad first! So I decided to buy them. And as this is my third time reading, I am still amazed that it never disappoints! I’m still on edge throughout the entire story. 55





After Phenomenon!5 star

Love love LOVE this book series ! Anna Todd, You’re going places watch. Success only goes up from here 55


On the fence (slight aspoilers)4 star

So the story was great and i enjoyed reading it until like two thirds in and i started getting frustrated. Hardin’s character was too rude in some instances and i was getting annoyed at how Tessa KEPT going back to Hardin. So for that, i understand why some readers are saying that this story is giving a bad impression to younger readers because frankly, they’re right. I wouldn’t want my younger sister thinking it’s ok for a guy to treat me like this just because the way he makes my body feels is electric. Tbh the movie is better and tamed down so therefore i love the movie more than the book. 45


OH MY GOD5 star

Okay, so like this book does have grammatical errors but that means nothing because of the story line. It took me 36 hours to read it because I was just so engulfed in this story, and it only took that long because I had to go to work. 10/10 recommend this book 55


After is amazing5 star

One of the best books I’ve ever read. I mean seriously because the characters and the plot is just captivating and really amazing. It’s an emotional roller coaster that you’ll never be bored in because I love read this twice. It’s so god 10/10 recommend. You won’t be disappointed ❤️ 55


Just okay1 star

I was really excited about reading this book since I kept seeing the movie advertised everywhere on social media ( I prefer the Books over movies). It started out great but then I felt like the main characters were in a constant repeat of arguments about the same thing and felt like maybe this book was written for teenagers. I didn’t enjoy reading it. I kept hoping it would get interesting. I personally couldn’t get into it. It was just OK 15


Abusive1 star

I stopped reading a quarter of the way through. The way the author allows the abusiveness of the “love” interest to be endearing is too much for me to stomach. If you are a survivor of an abusive relationship, you could be very triggered. 15


nope1 star

teaches girls that it’s okay to be treated bad & nothing will happen if done so. he treats her like she’s a joke and it’s not okay. what happens in this book could be triggering to some people. 15


Love5 star

If any of you have watched her clips she clearly said she made a few adjustments to her movie because the book was kind of outdated. The way the “tuff guy” falls for the “nerdy good girl” I love it. I love everything about this book and I honestly can’t wait for the next book and the next, and the next 😂😂😍 and also the movies!!!!! I’m patiently waiting on the After movie(: 55


This is the book !!5 star

Amazing All I can say is that it’s amazing. This book has kept me on the edge of my seat since I started reading it. The love between Tessa and Harden is so amazing yea the have there downs but it’s true love. 55


Couldn’t Finish1 star

I started reading this book a few years ago. I’ve attempted to read it three time now and I STILL can’t finish it. It’s repetitive. The constant push and pull of the two main characters frustrating. The main guy is annoyingly moody and the main girl is easily taken advantage of by him. I literally can’t even finish this book because I get so bored of the back and forth argumentative dialogue between the characters where they just pick fights with each other. I’ve read over half the book and yet there is no climax and certainly no resolution. I have more negative points to make about this book but I’m not a writer so I will stop here. 15



This series is seriously the best. I’ve read them all multiple times & it feels like the first time, all exciting and curious to know what happens next👀 More than ready for this movie to come out!!! 55


Great book5 star

@ everyone saying this book is about abuse, degrading women, or whatever else, has NOT read this book or the original. If you think that this book promotes abuse then you’ll need to google the word because I’ve read all 3 of the books and I totally love it. It has the truth about college, the fake friends who set you up, the twists (which are pretty crazy) and the couple who bc they put others opinions get in between them they break each other’s hearts, but in the end, they learn that it doesn’t matter because no matter how different they are, they’re both the same. 55


This book snapped5 star
