You see couples like this all the time and you think, “why does she stay with him, he makes her miserable.” They fight, they break up, they get back together and it is a viscous circle that never seems to end.
“Should I ask to drive her to campus today?” I follow him down the stairs. He shakes his head at me. “What part of nonsuffocating do you not get?” “I liked you better when you kept your mouth shut.” “I liked you better when you . . . well, I never liked you,” he says, but I can tell he’s teasing.
I am fascinated with Hardin and Tessa despite the fact that I have read basically 1200 pages of them fighting, making up and then fighting again but surprising enough, I like it and want to keep reading. Hardin is so insecure and jealous and Tessa is sometimes the same, they like to get back at each other in the most painful ways. But when they are alone, they love each other so fiercely that you can’t help but root for them.
They both have such awful backgrounds that you feel so bad for them and you really want them to grow up and work together. Anna Todd is also great at adding a last minute cliffhanger that really makes you have to immediately buy the next book. Damn her! 🤬
