Book Five of the After series—Anna Todd’s Wattpad fanfiction that racked up one billion reads online and captivated romance readers across the globe! As told by Hardin and other characters, Before will explore the hero’s life before he met Tessa, reveal what happens after After, give you new insights on their turbulent romance—and revel in the awesome power of true love. #HESSA
BEFORE is everything I expected and more!  When I found out that Anna was writing BEFORE and that it was going to be in Hardin's POV, I was fangirling really hard!  I mean it's HARDIN!!!  Who doesn't want to know what is going through his head during all those scenes! 

I'm sure you already know that I love this series and that Hardin and Tessa are one of my all time favorite couples.  Their relationship wasn't perfect, it was actually far from that.  They struggled and annoyed the living crap out of me.  But they loved eachother, they loved each other hard.  They both had a lot of growing up to do and therefore, did a lot of stupid things.  One of my favorite thing from the story that I loved was watching them grow into the people they were meant to be.  I am not going to lie, there were times I hated Hardin, and while reading BEFORE, since it's in his POV, I hated him even more.  I wanted to slap him a few times, but now I know why he did them.  He loved Tessa and felt like he just wasn't enough for her because he was so broken.  Now, I want to start crying again! ugh!!!  Get yourself together, Ana! LOL

The bottom line is that you all need to read this series.  You just have to go in knowing that these two are going to push your buttons and you are going to want to slap them, but I promise you that it will become one of your favorite loves stories of all time.  It is for me and it will always hold a special place in my heart.  #Hessa4Ever
