Welcome to my new -column, I don’t know what to call it- called Fiction Friday. I am a super big fan of romance which is what many of these posts will be about. I will be sharing with you my latest reads. I am also a big fan of physical copy of books but I have been a little too poor to buy them so I have been downloading them online to my phone. It is pretty convenient but then I get stuck reading books super fast.
Last month I picked up After by Anna Todd at Target. I read through the book within a few days and was eager to buy the rest of the series. I downloaded the rest of the series to my phone and finished each one within a few days of each other.
I read fast. This is your typical good girl meets bad boy but with a Fifty Shades of Grey twist. Now, I haven’t read the Grey series (however, I am considering it!) These books are for a young audience but definitely must be over eighteen.
Definitely a 10/10!

There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything AFTER… Life will never be the same. #Hessa
Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way.
But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.
But he’s also rude—to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does—until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.
He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.
Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?
Unless…could this be love?
