Publisher's Summary

Tessa has everything to lose. 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 walk away. It’s just not that easy. Not with the memory of passionate nights spent 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 - school, friends, her mom, a relationship with a guy who really loved her, and now possibly even a promising new career. She needs to move forward with her life. 

Hardin knows he made a mistake, possibly the biggest one of his life. He’s not going down without a fight. But can he change? Will he change...for love?

Good storyline....not so great male narrator.

The female narrator could do this all on her own, and I believe it would be better. Good story line though.

Painful

I have about 3.5 hours left and I don't think I can get through it. These characters are just too much. It's the same thing over and over and over again. It never gets anywhere. Also this author needs to stop using the word LITERALLY all the time. Her hair was black, literally black. Sooo overused. Wish I could return the book.

A trash story with a trash relationship

This book is a steaming pile of hot garbage. I read the first After, and since it basically ended in the middle of a paragraph, I decided to get the second one to see where it goes. Let me tell you, I envy the dead because they don't have the the ability to listen or read this trash.

Tess and Hardin have the WORST relationship that is toxic, manipulative, and abusive. "But oh, Hardin is hot and damaged and it's my responsibility to fix him." GIRL, PLEASE. GET OUT OF HERE WITH THAT LOGIC. Tess is weak and SO annoying with her inner commentary saying things like "I don't deserve to be treated like this" and then just sets herself up for it again. Like, I CANNOT. I had to force myself to finish the book, and I vowed awhile back that I would not get the next ones and I am definitely standing by that. I cannot subject myself to this kind of torture and garbage again.

Also, Shane East CLEARLY does not have an English accent and it for sure took away from everything. Like, it literally sounds like he is trying to be an English Christian Grey and it does not work at all. No dice, friends. Save yourself the credit, the sanity, and the time, because this is not worth it. It completely rivals Twilight and Fifty Shades for the worst storyline ever amongst a toxic relationship.

PS: I never yelled "finally" at the end of a book like I did with this one. Literally screamed it in my car because I couldn't take it anymore.

PSS: Zed > Hardin. That's it, end of story, contract terminated.

Shane East!!!! Love this narrater!

Shane East literally makes Hardin come alive in this book! I confess I only bought the first book because of this narrator; but Anna Todd is a genius. I have never listened to (or read) a more intense series! I love me some bad boy Harden; and Shane East has without a doubt THE sexiest British accent ever!!!! I will buy anything Anna Todd writes! I will also buy anything Shane East narrates. Great book series!

I liked the male narration but the female was a bit grading. Good story so I was hooked. Would recommend.

i loved it

I love the heartbreak as much as i love the happy moments in tessa and hardins story. I cried, i laughed out loud, i got mad and rolled my eyes, but im in love with this story. This story is more realistic to me than any love story i have ever read, it just goes to show that not every love is all hearts and flowers, there is going to be struggles.

Missing pieces, very frustrating. Contains spoiler

I'm not through reading this book yet but I'm getting highly irritated. A number of times now the book will reference items that I don't remember reading about. Spoiler alert: The first time I truly noticed this was in Chapter 54 when Tessa came back from lunch with Trevor and Hardin was there. The book goes from the start of a fight and then within seconds she's telling him that he's the only one for her. But multiple times later they reference a fight and suddenly Hardin knows that she went on a date with Trevor. Another time was after the car crash. Suddenly she comes home with Zed driving her. However, there is no backstory to how she called him or how he ended up taking her home. Later Zed references the drive and how he told her he was dating someone. I never heard anything about this. It's like I'm missing chapters or somehow when it's a chapter with Hardin's perspective, I'm missing her POV. The book for sure needs editing but not like this. Has anyone else encounterd this?! Need to know if it's something to do with the copy I've downloaded or just bad writing. It's so irritating! I don't want to continue listening if I'm missing items.

Eye roll...

I liked the first one better...and that’s saying something because I didn’t really like the first one. Tessa is a doormat. I’ll probably still see the movie, though. I guess I like garbage.

How are ther 5 of these?

I randomly started this series not knowing anything about it, but just being a fan of the genre. Tessa is the dumbest little girl i have ever read about. it is infuriating the amount of bad, unthought out decisions she makes. How does this behavior go on for 5 books?! I cant see my self sticking around for that many 19 hour books.

Male narrator

I listen to the first book and really enjoyed it and the female narrator and got used to her voice. I started this book and when I heard the male narrator i hated his voice and I was upset it was very off putting and made me uncomfortable. I decided to read the book on actual paper instead because I couldn’t handle it.

Love this series apart from annoying male narrator

I love this series of books so far especially the first book, and I find the female narrator perfect for the character and I enjoyed listening to Tessa's chapters but I found the male chapters spoilt the story! The male narrator was annoying and when he tried to do a female voice it was cringe worthy especially the intimate moments! I had to begrudgingly listen through so I didn't miss any of the story! They should have just left it the female narrator like the first book!!

A haunting depiction of an abusive relationship

Enjoyed the first book and its laying out of human flaws especially in love but this second book is dangerous. Seeing into the head of both characters we are supposed to feel sympathy for the thought processes of both as they repeatedly torture each other. Rationalizing their actions based on their past or that 'This is just what they are like'.
The presentation of Landon as Tessa's friend was ruined for me as soon as he asked Tessa to go to Zed to ask him not to press charges. That's b*llsh*t.
The male narrators 'female' voice is also ridiculous and does not do any female characters justice.
This book is a great look into the minds of an abused girlfriend - constantly blaming herself for his actions - and a manipulative boyfriend.
If I had written it, they would have never gotten back together after he went to England. A good character development would have been him dealing with being able to leave her to be happy and for her to find happiness with someone else .
But as it is this book throws them together time and time again, warping the readers views of relationships and general human decency.

Couldn't finish this.

Loved the first book but the male narrator on the second book doing a female voice was too much. To me it ruined the whole story. I stopped listening after the first couple of chapters.

It annoys me but I’m hooked

I really like the depth to both main characters and the portrayal of a relationship which acknowledges unhealthy behaviours however the repetitive fighting and making up is at this point becoming a little exhausting. Also the male voice actors portrayal of women’s voices has got to be one of the most unbearable things I’ve ever heard! More than once I had to take a break from listening as he was so cringeworthy!

Bad choice for male narrator

The male narrator was not a very good fit for this book. Tessa and Hardin are supposed to be 2 young people while Elizabeth is perfect for Tessa Shane sounds like an old man and the way he portrays a woman’s voice is really cringe and hard to listen to!

Very catchy!

I love these book series! It is so catchy and finished it in 2 days... The voices are very easy to listen to. Apart from Shane talking as a woman, makes every woman sound like he is making fun of them. But apart from that, the story is amazing.

The dudes voice is just not it

It was soooo hard to hear the man's voice. Not that theres anything wrong with him but when he imitates the women is just... funny. I couldn't focus or take it seriously. Somehow whenever the women imitated the man wasn't bad though so not sure whats up with that. But yeah. The story is super entertaining but I'm an adult, I wouldn't want my teenage sister to listen to this and romanticize toxic relationships, possessive men, not leaving someone who mentally and physically hurt you and others etc.

It's the narrating for me

I originally was drawn in, by the end I was over it and have had to take a break before starting the next book.
I didn't like the male narrator speaking the female role, it sounded odd and made me cringe.

Lies, deceit, abuse... and unconditional love

I read the whole series. It was ...OK. I found the characters to be incredibly frustrating & hard to relate to or even like. Hardins behaviour is appalling and Tessa doesn't have a backbone and is a victim throughout. I really hope that the young adults who read these books and watch the films realise that this behaviour isn't OK and they deserve better.

The books were hard to get through (but I needed to know how it finished). This one was the worst out of the series. Although they sort themselves out in the end, I couldn't help thinking about all the time wasted listening to these. Especially when I could have just watched the movies...

I think it's in your best interest not to listen.

Let's start with the narrators. Shane East does a reasonable job of the male roles but he makes females sound like drag queens, so hard to listen to! On the other hand, the female narrator is okay (slightly whiny and grating) but does an amazing job of the male voices. I don't think Shane East is needed, he didn't narrate the first book and he wasn't missed then.
Secondly, editing was terrible! Someone has clearly decided to chop bits out of the book without concerning themselves with continuity so the storyline doesn't always flow.
Thirdly, this book has taken the last 70 years of feminist plight and thrown it in the bin. The female protagonist actually had female masturbation man-splained to her. I don't care how naive you are, when an uncaring, selfish AF man knows more about how to please you than you do, something's wrong!
Finally, it's boring. It's a little bit enticing, mildly captivating and you'll probably get hooked and want to find out what happens but don't do it! It's an annoying back and forth of every nightmare, abusive relationship you can imagine. It's not terrible but it goes on and on with the same crap and I really think you should all do yourselves a favour and avoid it to begin with.

Frustrating

A lot of repetition and I thought, just leave him already! In saying that however, I enjoyed the book. I particularly like the narration by Shane East, such a sexy voice, but a shocking delivery of the female characters..he gave Hardin a good edge, and It was good to understand more of this character

Better than the first book

Gotta admit that whilst I struggled through the first book, this one was much better.
I was relieved by the two perspectives, and having access to Hardin's side brought more dimension to the story and interestingly, I found myself sympathizing with Hardin more than Tess.
Same as book 1, it got a bit repetitive with the back and forth, but not unbearable.
Well read by both narrators.

How did Shane East get this role?

Not as good as book one! Shane East? Really! His voice was not suitable for portraying Hardin. His voice sounds very old and not to mention his female voice was cringe worth. The only thing going for him in this novel was his accent but still he was difficult to listen to.
