Publisher's Summary

Now with new exclusive material!

Now a major motion picture! 

Experience the internet's most talked-about book from Anna Todd, the writer Cosmopolitan called “the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation” — now with new exclusive material! 

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, and tattoos, 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?

How to get into and stay in an obviously abusive relationship

On a positive note, the narrator was alright. Unfortunately, the story glamorizes unhealthy and emotionally abusive relationships. Everything the main character does to justify how she is being treated is incredibly sad. I would be fine with the story if it read as a commentary of how abuse cycles start and continue, but it is not written as an insightful or cautionary tale, but more as a fairy tale (albeit with a ending that is not positive but I would bet on the cycle continuing in the series).
Also, while I felt bad for the main character, I found her quite unlikeable for the majority of the book because she was just a mean person (this is just a personal opinion, I know some people like typically unlikeable characters).

Definitely worth buying

Having Hero read the last chapter from Hardin's P.O.V. made it hauntingly beautiful. Loved it!

Wow

Listening to the last chapter being read by Hero was excruciatingly painful. Putting you in his shoes and feeling his pain as Molly makes Hardin tell Tessa everything

Could not get into it

The narrator sounds like a robot. No emotion or personality. Couldn’t even give it a chance. Wanted to like it but couldn’t.

I loved the ending. Including Hardin’s side definitely gives the book more meaning. I could not stop listening. Great book.
