After finishing the first book in the After series, I immediately jumped into this second book There was no way that I was going to quit this series with the way things ended at the end of After absolutely, no way I had to know how things were going to play out for this disastrous couple They are like crack It might kill me I know it s really not healthybut I just can t seem to pull myself away from it If I thought that Hardin and Tessa were going to grow up and start treating each other better, I would ve been sorely disappointed These two are every bit as toxic as they were the first time around The back and forth, break up and make up, abusive cycle continues, strong as ever Of course, I m such a glutton for punishment that I had to have a front row seat for all of it Picking up right where the first book ended, Tessa does her best to try and piece her life back together She has been betrayed by everyone that she thought were her friends most of all, Hardin Unfortunately, the manipulative jackass succeeded in tying her to him when he tricked her into moving into an apartment with him and away from the dorms This will make distancing herself from him difficult than she had hoped.While Tessa makes a weak attempt at moving on, Hardin sets out to prove that his feelings for her are genuine Of course, every time he starts to make any progress in that regard he does something that sabotages all of his efforts They truly are their own worst enemies.For what it s worth, Hardin does seem to show some actual emotions in this book Mainly, his regret and heartache shines through It s hard to feel sorry for him though, since all of his pain is entirely the result of his own cruel actions To make matters worse, every time he starts to gain a little nice guy stock, he goes and does something abhorrent again, reminding me of what a despicable asshat he is Some big revelations about his past only further prove that he is not to be trusted He really is deplorablebut I love to hate him I also found myself feeling a little irritated with Tessa s weakness this time around Can you say doormat How many times is this girl going to fall for his crap She also played the same childish games over and over, using other guys to make Hardin jealous, only to play the victim when she got the reaction she was looking for all along I felt sorry for Tessa at first By the end of this book, I was marveling at the fact that she hadn t been weeded out as part of the process of natural selection Surely, this girl is too stupid to live That being said, I still can t pull myself away from this angsty, infuriating story It is like watching a trashy talk show or soap opera It s unrealistic The relationships are toxic It probably kills off brain cells However, I can t get enough of it It is my latest guilty pleasure I m kind of ashamed to admit it, but I m completely hooked on this series.Like the first book, After We Collided ends with a huge cliffhanger Anna Todd certainly knows how to pull me back in At this point, I think my relationship with this series is much like the relationship between Hardin and Tessa I should probably cut all ties and get out while I can, but I just can t seem to resist the pull I m on to the third book in this addictive, dysfunctional romance. After We Collided, book 2 of 5 The tumultuous against all odds romance between tatted rebel Hardin Scott good girl Tessa YoungJust because he can t love you the way you want him to doesn t mean he doesn t love you with everything he hasBooks in The After series should be read in order Book 1 AfterBook 2 After We CollidedBook 3 After We FellBook 4 After Ever HappyBook 5 BeforeThe After series is the epic love saga between flawed rebel bad boy student and editor Hardin Allen Scott and na ve good girl student and intern editor Theresa Lynn Young, Tessa In After, book 1 Tessa met Hardin and an unlikely friendship blossomed into only to be shattered by secrets, jealousy and betrayal.After We Collided, book 2 will test their relationship taking their connection to another level A dysfunctional and co dependent love with their biggest obstacles to overcome from within Nine words to describe Hardin Allen Scott Unpredictable, moody, flawed, broken, aloof, secretive, demanding, conflicted and possessive.Nine words to describe Theresa Lynn Young, Tessa Organized, meek, compulsive, goal oriented, determined, na ve, trusting, curious and forgiving.After We Collided, told from dual POVs, is an all consuming, addicting, at times angsty journey of self discovery, testing boundaries, pushing limits and surrendering it all for love It ends opening another chapter, leading right to book 3, After We Fell for the continuation of their journey Hero Heroine Plot Storytelling Sexual tension Sex scenes Story ending N A OVERALL RATING Angst HIGH FOCUS Darkness MEDIUM FOCUS Humor LOW FOCUS Kink LOW FOCUS Romance HIGH FOCUS Sex frequency MEDIUM FOCUS Suspense MEDIUM FOCUS This book, even than the first one, is like watching a car crash you shouldn t be watching but you can t tear your eyes away from the disaster And even though I ll probably roll my eyes a hundred times again, I ll definitively be reading the next one It s like the book is Hardin and I m Tessa I know it s bad but I just can t stay away. 1.5 stars cause 2 stars are too much for this nonsense.Seriously Seriously Seriously This supposed to be a plot twist I was optimistic about the second book in the series since the first half of the story was, let s say, a desent one But then Todd had to ruin everything just to continue the story line and fill the papers with words Unfortunately, I forgot the most interesting moments by the time I ve finished it.I have to thank my buddy reads Mareira, Maria Vrisanaki and Athina who gave me the courage to finish this shitty second book. Just because he can t love you the way you want him to doesn t mean he doesn t love you with everything he has Hessa will be the death of me I love them, but when I would think everything will be fine, something always happensOnce you start reading this series, you won t be able to put it down This book was exiting again, and I really liked that we could read some chapters from Hardin s POV too, that made the story even interesting But I liked the first book better I was satisfied with the ending, even though Anna Todd left us with another cliffhanger I love these two idiots. I don t think I can reiterate enough how much I hate this series But Angela why the high rating Well let me break it down for you, this is the best worst thing I ve ever read It s so addictive it s insane It s like the potato chip bag of books You don t want to eat than a handful but somehow wind up eating the whole bag After We Collided is seriously just the book After again It s the same shit different day Tessa and Hardin continue their on again off again, I hate you but can t live without you bull that they did in the first Tessa is still the same up tight jump to conclusion why is she dating this guy train wreck that she was in the first Hardin is the same glass smashing must fight anything with a pulse emotional flip flopping dbag he was in the first as well Tessa continues to say one thing then do another Hardin continues to come up with white pointless lies for again, no reason To give Todd some credit she did give her characters a little development and personality in this one than the first Tessa managed to have a little spine than a jellyfish and Hardin was a lot comical than in the firstJust because he can t love you the way you want him to doesn t mean he doesn t love you with everything he has As far as the plot line goes AWC is like I said above, just After only written in dual Pov between Hardin and Tessa A lot of people are saying how important this was because we get to see what s going on in both our leads heads Hate to be the bearer of bad news but there is nothing of substance going on in either of their brains 95% of the time you ll be screaming wow if these two just actually chilled the F out and had a real conversation this book would be 200 pages shorter and sweeter This book is a cluster of what the heck am I reading moments That being said I did enjoy the dual views The plot is as delicious as soggy bread an at this point in time you re probably still wondering why I ve given it such high marks Well because again Todd has managed to hook me in Every time I set this book down within minutes I had to pick it back up The combination of perfectly placed twist, smutty goodness, my hatred of characters, and stupid plot must have fried all my braincells and in return made me love this storyThe After Series brings nothing new or original to the ya na genre The moment it pulled the 50 shades of gross it took everything in me not to set this book on fire if you ve read it you know EXACTLY what I m talking about Though the characters are awful and the plot is weak all the twist made up for it Because when those twist happen Well lets just say my situation looked a little like this Excuse me while I just die from feelings over here for a while.
