Book Summary (Per Amazon)
Book 3 of the After series—newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd's After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the internet's most talked-about book for yourself from the writer Cosmopolitan called “the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation.”

Tessa and Hardin’s love was complicated before. Now it’s more confusing than ever. AFTER WE FELL...Life will never be the same. #HESSA

Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim.

Tessa’s life begins to come unglued. Nothing is what she thought it was. Not her friends. Not her family. The one person she should be able to rely on, Hardin, is furious when he discovers the massive secret she’s been keeping. And rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage.

Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss—but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together. But if Tessa follows her heart now, will it be...the end?


My Thoughts
Move over Molly you are not the worst villain in town...there are a lot of holy cripes moments in this book (heck series), but the going away party sealed that deal.  ***** is EVIL, I mean I didn't see that coming at all.  On one hand I am like poor Tessa and on the other hand I am yelling at her for not seeing this group as the crap that they are and never EVER talking to them again.  Nothing goes well in that house or with that group of people.  Additionally, why has Ken, the Chancellor, not addressed oh anything that has taken place in that house?!?!?!

I was so proud of Tessa for staying true to herself and following her dream.  I enjoy the writing style in this book because I think many people go through the whole should I or should I not in their decision making.  I loved the spurts of growth we saw with Hardin in this book.  His relationship and time with Tessa's father warmed my heart. The ending...well that is another story of really..just really how much can we take before we just don't want him in the story at all?  I think that is the brilliance of the story though..just when we say enough Hardin does something that just grabs those heart strings and makes us say ok..one more go.

This story was very much a roller coaster for Hessa as a couple and each of them individually.  AT does a great job writing this story and giving details.  There was plenty that frustrated me in regards to their relationship and treatment in this story, but that idea of change and hope and love keeps me ensnared in this journey!
