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?
The book series promotes an abusive , harmful relationship. The plot is poorly structured with about 30 different themes stitched together so that it becomes confusing. If you are really desperate to read such a poor piece of literature, then remember it's free on Wattpad . Wouldn't even give it 1 star if I had the choice.
Repetitive, Uninspired & Tasteless
Long story short, my husband bought me this book for Christmas, I read it, and would recommend Ms. Todd join us in the real world. Hideously written with a shocking lack of any substance. I am having problems selling it on, as everyone else I know who received this for Christmas is giving it away for free.
It would be redundant of me to review the content in depth, as it is, quite simply, 50 Shades of Grey for children. Absolutely shocking.
Don't buy this book. It's awful for many reasons.
It promotes abusive relationship. Half the book is actually copied. It is teaching young children that it is okay to be abused and the author is a liar. I'm trying to help you so please don't read this book.
