As the shocking truth about each of their families emerges, it’s clear the two lovers are not so different from each other. Tessa is no longer the sweet, simple, good girl she was when she met Hardin—any more than he is the cruel, moody boy she fell so hard for. Tessa understands all the troubling emotions brewing beneath Hardin’s exterior, and she knows she’s the only one who can calm him when he erupts. He needs her.
But the more layers of his past come to light, the darker he grows, and the harder he pushes Tessa—and everyone else in his life—away. Tessa’s not sure if she really can save him—not without sacrificing herself. She refuses to go down without a fight. But who is she fighting for—Hardin or herself?
YES! This is officially the end of this epic series and by far my favorite of them ALL! Anna Todd has wrapped up all the drama and emotion tightly with this book and I found the ending to be one of the most satisfying endings that I have ever read. I absolutely LOVED IT. Gah, this whole series is an emotional roller coaster of up's and down's that it sometimes became unlikable. But the way everything is explained towards the end of this book makes the roller coaster of this series worth riding. I truly mean that!
For those who are unfamiliar with the series, this is the fourth book (and the conclusion) to Hardin and Tessa's tumultuous relationship. Each of the books must be read in order of publication as they each begin where the last one left off. Most do end in cliffhangers as well, but lucky for you if you haven't read the series because all of the books are available. Just be warned, once you start this series you are bound to get hooked. I did and couldn't stop the series for long before I had to pick up the next book.
For those who follow my reviews you already know that I really love this series (even though the first 3 books are the most dramatic books I have ever read in my life). It just feels so real... With that being said, I would absolutely recommend all of the books in the series (including this one, of course) to you. They all fall within the new adult/college romance category as well, so if you like these types of books you may enjoy this one as well!
