Book Two of the After series—Tessa has everything to lose. Hardin has nothing to lose…except her. AFTER WE COLLIDED…Life will never be the same.
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?
I may just have to mark this whole series as unrated. :/ It was more of the same.. love/sex/drama/hate/repeat the entire novel. The ending was not a cliff hanger like the first book, at least not for me. The entire novel felt WAY too long, and the relationship is still as unhealthy as ever.
I can identify with Tessa a little bit but.. there is a difference between being a compassionate, empathetic lover and being an abused doormat……. she teeters that line quite often. I will say that I did somewhat find this book better than After but, it didn’t quite hold my attention the same way. I don’t know if I even have it in me to finish the series.. Hardin is really exhausting to read about and I find myself questioning what the hell Tessa sees in him at all.
Still not a HESSA shipper. Meh.
