I Loved It!
Finally after all the drama and the angst we come to the end of Tess and Hardin’s story in After Ever Happy and this is by far my favorite book in the series! Now I’m not saying that there is not drama in this book, because c’mon.. this is Tess and Hardin we are talking about, but for once everything that they go through makes sense and takes them to where they need to be!
After Ever Happy picks right up where After We Fell ended and Anna Todd takes us on one last final crazy ride with these amazing characters. Hardin’s character really stuck out in this book and he shows how much he has grown and changed throughout this series. Sure we all probably hated his guts after finishing After We Fell, but the way he comes through time and time again and the way he is there for Tessa time and time again in this book really shows he’s not the punk kid we met in After. I fell in love with him all over again in this book and I wanted to strangle Tessa so many times for pushing him away. Granted, I understood her reasoning and I think what she did ended up helping everything in the end, but man I wanted to slap her so many times in this book!
Without giving anything away, I will say these two go through more in this book than I think they did in any of the previous books, but they handle it so much better. We get to see them grow, and truly come into their own and seeing the growth in both of them is beautiful. Seeing them stand on their own, learn from their past mistakes and build relationships around them is amazing and heartbreaking at the same time (trust me, you’ll understand once you read this book). This was a beautiful ending to Hardin and Tessa’s story and I didn’t want it to end, but the way it ended was AMAZING. I loved the extended epilogue and how everything fell into place exactly as it should have. If you haven’t one-clicked this series yet, trust me, you need to (unless you hate drama and angst). I got sucked in and haven’t been able to put these books down! I definitely will be picking up Landon’s stories soon because well, I need to see who he ended up with as well!
