After Ever Happy (After #4) by Anna Todd

23214408Tessa and Hardin have defied all the odds, but will their fairy tale ending be turned on its head? AFTER EVER HAPPY…Life will never be the same. #HESSAIt’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 impenetrable 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?

2 starsI had so many hopes for this book, but sadly they all fell flat. After reading After We Fell I was so excited to jump into this book. I skimmed about 50% of this. It was only so much back and forth between these two that I can take. I give it to Anna, the drama was there. The drama was what kept me in the series till now.
But this couple is one of for the books. Tessa got on my nerves so much in this book. I hated damn near every decision she made. Most of them were still the same childish Tessa. She did grow up a little but all the self-loathing and crying was nerve racking. Hardin frustrated me, pissed me off, and made me want to punch him in the face. After saying all that, my heart went out to him throughout most of the book. He loved Tessa and was doing anything to get her and keep her. But at the same time, their relationship was so repetitive. This relationship was toxic and just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, IT DID! This book felt dragged out and I finally made it till the end.
The ONLY reason I gave this book 2 stars is because the characters made it in the end. (well as much as they could with this big train wreck of a romance)
