Great character Growth
I loved this book! The characters all had great growth throughout the novel. There were a few reasons I couldnâ€™t give it a five star (spoiler alert)
1) I felt like we deserved to see Hardin and Tessaâ€™s wedding and hear a little about their honeymoon. After all that journey.
2) I felt like Tessa and Hardin had too much time apart.
3) I like Hardinâ€™s growth but I felt like he really wasnâ€™t anything like himself at the end. I think he could have grown and still kept some traits just tempered down.
This series wrecked me to my core - in a good way! I saw the trailer and wanted to read the books first. I bought the first book on a Thursday and by Sunday I had read and finished all 4 books in the series (Iâ€™ll be purchasing â€śBeforeâ€ť soon!)
This book is so much more than a love story. This book is raw. It deals with addiction, anger, and major inner demons. The character development in Tessa and Hardin is unmatched. At times I was frustrated by the seemingly never-ending cycle of Hardinâ€™s mistakes and destructive behaviors. But by this 4th book, I was crying and rejoicing for his progression. I think I was really disappointed to not get a definitive answer on their marriage and Iâ€™m really sad we didnâ€™t get a wedding scene. The time they took apart was hard to read, too. But itâ€™s what they needed and thatâ€™s real life for you.
Iâ€™m so glad we got a happy ending though. I donâ€™t think my heart good have handled it otherwise. I canâ€™t rave about these books enough. Iâ€™m in such a post-book depression now. Thank you Anna for giving us this incredible and raw series.
Favorite book ever
The most amazing book in the entire series. I was on the edge of my seat, laughing & crying along with the characters, who became so much more than characters to me. I canâ€™t recommend this series enough, it has forever left an imprint on my soul.
After Ever.... Heartbroken
You can feel ever emotion from every character. My head was spinning by the time I got to the end of the book, which was only after a day and a half. This book had me on edge for the fate of these two. Itâ€™s such a scary thing that a relationship can be so toxic and you realize that, but a book like this can make you crave that. I really need a remedy for post book depression because I feel SO close to Tessa and Hardin, so seeing this story come to an end hurts my heart in the best way. Iâ€™m feeling extremely gloomy coming back to the real world after binge reading this series. đź’”
Great books I loved them all but a little confused about the ending??? I donâ€™t recall ever seeing that they got married so did they? And why isnâ€™t Landonâ€™s wife named?
This is the best series I have ever read. I read all 4 books in one week. I am in love with Hessa
Loved the series so much, and I did not want to end at all. The ending of this book was too rushed and I felt as though it deserved a better way of ending the series. It all happened too fast and the â€śtwo years later,â€ť and â€śtwo years after thatâ€ť was not how it should have played out.
The ending wasnâ€™t what I wanted
Hardin and Tessa was suppose to get married. If feels like the book wasnâ€™t finished at the end. You spend some much time reading them go back and forward to leave it unfinished. Tessa was sad at the end too, she canâ€™t have what she wants. I though that it was going to be worth reading their arguments and growth but, the ending wasnâ€™t worth it. The books are great with the drama and back story. I just feel like I was left hanging.
It seems the author was in a hurry to finish the whole series of Hardin and Tessa. She was like ok Iâ€™m so done with this, letâ€™s just finish it. The story goes on and on until the end-and then it gets so sloppy and all over the place. Itâ€™s looks more like a rough draft rather then the edited piece.
The sad part I wasted so much time reading the whole series and they never get married. Very depressing feeling at the end. She is not the same person. Completely broken and sad. It seems like she went through her own Hunger games. The ending gave me the feeling of the last chapter of Hunger games. Same depressed feeling and rushed ending. And no real closure.
I am in loveđź’™. I read the watt pad version first. And am so glad that there was a happy ending. My heart ached for Hessa. Iâ€™m so glad they got there happy ending!!!!
