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 just walk away, but it just isn’t that easy. Not with the memory of passionate nights wrapped 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 – University, friends, her relationship with her mother, a loving boyfriend, even her fledgling career. She needs to move on. Hardin knows he made a mistake, possibly the biggest one of his life, but he won’t be going down without a fight! But can he change…will he change…for love?
‘After we collided’ is the second book in the ‘After’ series by Anna Todd. I’ve read the first part before and that ended with an open ending, an invitation to keep reading. In this book, the love between Tess and Hardin still isn’t happily ever after and they continue to fight. They go from being super in love to hating each other and never wanting to see the other person again.
At one point in the book I was so done with Tess. Hardin can do anything and Tess will keep taking him back and back and back. Do you think this will happen in real life? I doubt that. And that’s exactly why I didn’t think the book was very realistic.
But.. there’s the big BUT. The book has a freaking 688 pages. That is a LOT. I finished it in three days. The way Tess and Hardin feel about each other, the addiction for each other.. that’s what happens to me when I read the book. I could not put it down. I wanted more. Unrealistic or not, I’m addicted to After and I cannot wait for the third book (I’m reading them in Dutch). I have to admit I’ve never had such a love/hate affair with a book until this one. It’s insane.
Since I have a love/hate affair with the book, the only fair thing I can do is grade it insanely high. I totally admit it. I am completely addicted to this series and to Tess and Hardin.
