After We Fell

The After Series, #3

This series has been a whirlwind so far, and book three is even larger and filled with more expected and unexpected obstacles for Tessa and Hardin's bustling relationship. The story picks up when Tessa runs into her estranged father. I would call this book a battlefield for Tessa, as she tries to navigate her rekindled relationship with Hardin, her father's drunk and homeless problems and finally her big move to Seattle (that Hardin refuses to agree with).

Tessa has always felt like a real person to me, not just a character on the page. This book really shows her ability to continue growing and making decisions and dealing with harsh situations. I find her story easy to relate to, and I am grateful to find a book that shows how hard it is to transition from high school to college life and finding a profession. Life isn't easy, relationships aren't easy and finally we have an author that is brave enough to write about the terrible truth that is life sometimes. I love this series and cannot wait to begin the fourth and final book.

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?

*Includes an abusive relationship. Emotionally gripping story.
