It's never been all rainbows and sunshine for Tessa and Hardin, but each new challenge they've faced has only made their passionate bond stronger and stronger. But when a revelation about the past shakes Hardin's inpenetrable façade to the core-and then Tessa suffers a tragedy-will they stick together again, or be torn apart?
As the shocking truth about each of their families emerges, it's clear the two lovers are not so different from each other. Tessa is no longer the sweet, simple, good girl she was when she met Hardin-any more than he is the cruel, moody boy she fell so hard for. Tessa understands all the troubling emotions brewing beneath Hardin's exterior, and she knows she's the only one who can calm him when he erupts. He needs her.
But the more layers of his past come to light, the darker he grows, and the harder he pushes Tessa-and everyone else in his life-away. Tessa's not sure if she really can save him-not without sacrificing herself. She refuses to go down without a fight. But who is she fighting for-Hardin or herself?
Still in love with #Hessa :D Like the 3 books before I read it in only two days bc it was so captivating. I wanted to know if it's gonna be a happy end so badly. It was expected that Tessa can't handle it forever that way with Hardin. He destroyed her part by part without noticing it. Why do people often only realize their faults when it's too late? I mean he knew that his behavior was false the whole time but he kept on doing them. Unfortunately it was necessary that Tessa had a emotional depth for Hardin to finally changes himself. I never expected that Tessa would be so down bc of Hardin and I suffered with her. I can completely comprehend the behavior of Tessas mum even thought I don't liked it bc it wasn't good for #Hessa but it's Hardins fault. I still hate Zed XD (hate Zed today. Hate Zed tomorrow. Hate Zed forever) hehe. Tessas decision to go to New York is the best decision she ever did and it's so important for her relationship with Hardin. Not like their separation in the 3th bookw when Hardi visited her nearly all thee days in Seattle. While Tessa is in New York she and Hardin grew and got a life like Tessas mum thought her daughter. The thing with the book Hardin wrote about them both is just so cute. And him being a bestselling author is the best I could have imagined for him. But I don't understand why Tessa didn't contact Hardin for one year after she read the book. I mean Hardin wrote about his deepest feelings for her exactly how he felt them and why he did his faults. What could be a better explanation for them? And the end was in my opinion a bit weird. It was time but it that what happened in the hours after they met at the toilet was just illogical bc they didn't spoke with each other even when they saw each other. Smith is such a cutie:D The end was so nice and the best I could have imagined. I'm so happy for them both.
You must read the books!!!!!!
