Publisher's Summary

Tessa has everything to lose. Hardin has nothing to lose.... except her. After We Collided... Life will never be the same.

After a tumultuous beginning to their relationship, Tessa and Hardin were on the path to making things work. Tessa knew Hardin could be cruel, but when a bombshell revelation is dropped about the origins of their relationship - and Hardin’s mysterious past - Tessa is beside herself.

Hardin will always be... Hardin. But is he really the deep, thoughtful guy Tessa fell madly in love with despite his angry exterior - or has he been a stranger all along? She wishes she could walk away. It’s just not that easy. Not with the memory of passionate nights spent in his arms. His electric touch. His hungry kisses.

Still, Tessa’s not sure she can endure one more broken promise. She put so much on hold for Hardin - school, friends, her mom, a relationship with a guy who really loved her, and now possibly even a promising new career. She needs to move forward with her life.

Hardin knows he made a mistake, possibly the biggest one of his life. He’s not going down without a fight. But can he change? Will he change... for love?

I liked it but no where near as much as the first

i liked it but the first book was a lot better as there wasn't as much drama in this book.

Awful narration

I love the story but the narration was awful. Both female voices were so difficult to listen to. I didn't get past chapter 2.

BRILLIANT!

Loved it even more than the first the suspense of the last sentence draws you in so you need to read the third book! I have never wanted to read a series more than the after series by Anna Todd my new favourite author. Your on the edge. Emotional. Captivating. Awesome.

Cringe!!!!

I absolutely loved the back and forth dynamic with Tess and Hardin in the first book. But this book just over did it. I felt like the story just kept dragging on and on and repeating the same conflicts Tess endures between Hardin and Zedd. Hardin is so controlling and Tess is so immature it is unbearable.

The cliff hanger ending infuriated me and won’t be continuing the series.

On another note, absolutely loved Elizabeth Louise narration of Hardin and Tess!

Good storyline....not so great male narrator.

The female narrator could do this all on her own, and I believe it would be better. Good story line though.

Good book, not so good narration

I liked the male narration but the female was a bit grading. Good story so I was hooked. Would recommend.

Eye roll...

I liked the first one better...and that’s saying something because I didn’t really like the first one. Tessa is a doormat. I’ll probably still see the movie, though. I guess I like garbage.

Painful

I have about 3.5 hours left and I don't think I can get through it. These characters are just too much. It's the same thing over and over and over again. It never gets anywhere. Also this author needs to stop using the word LITERALLY all the time. Her hair was black, literally black. Sooo overused. Wish I could return the book.

A trash story with a trash relationship

This book is a steaming pile of hot garbage. I read the first After, and since it basically ended in the middle of a paragraph, I decided to get the second one to see where it goes. Let me tell you, I envy the dead because they don't have the the ability to listen or read this trash.

Tess and Hardin have the WORST relationship that is toxic, manipulative, and abusive. "But oh, Hardin is hot and damaged and it's my responsibility to fix him." GIRL, PLEASE. GET OUT OF HERE WITH THAT LOGIC. Tess is weak and SO annoying with her inner commentary saying things like "I don't deserve to be treated like this" and then just sets herself up for it again. Like, I CANNOT. I had to force myself to finish the book, and I vowed awhile back that I would not get the next ones and I am definitely standing by that. I cannot subject myself to this kind of torture and garbage again.

Also, Shane East CLEARLY does not have an English accent and it for sure took away from everything. Like, it literally sounds like he is trying to be an English Christian Grey and it does not work at all. No dice, friends. Save yourself the credit, the sanity, and the time, because this is not worth it. It completely rivals Twilight and Fifty Shades for the worst storyline ever amongst a toxic relationship.

PS: I never yelled "finally" at the end of a book like I did with this one. Literally screamed it in my car because I couldn't take it anymore.

PSS: Zed > Hardin. That's it, end of story, contract terminated.

Shane East!!!! Love this narrater!

Shane East literally makes Hardin come alive in this book! I confess I only bought the first book because of this narrator; but Anna Todd is a genius. I have never listened to (or read) a more intense series! I love me some bad boy Harden; and Shane East has without a doubt THE sexiest British accent ever!!!! I will buy anything Anna Todd writes! I will also buy anything Shane East narrates. Great book series!

Male narrator

I listen to the first book and really enjoyed it and the female narrator and got used to her voice. I started this book and when I heard the male narrator i hated his voice and I was upset it was very off putting and made me uncomfortable. I decided to read the book on actual paper instead because I couldn’t handle it.

Missing pieces, very frustrating. Contains spoiler

I'm not through reading this book yet but I'm getting highly irritated. A number of times now the book will reference items that I don't remember reading about. Spoiler alert: The first time I truly noticed this was in Chapter 54 when Tessa came back from lunch with Trevor and Hardin was there. The book goes from the start of a fight and then within seconds she's telling him that he's the only one for her. But multiple times later they reference a fight and suddenly Hardin knows that she went on a date with Trevor. Another time was after the car crash. Suddenly she comes home with Zed driving her. However, there is no backstory to how she called him or how he ended up taking her home. Later Zed references the drive and how he told her he was dating someone. I never heard anything about this. It's like I'm missing chapters or somehow when it's a chapter with Hardin's perspective, I'm missing her POV. The book for sure needs editing but not like this. Has anyone else encounterd this?! Need to know if it's something to do with the copy I've downloaded or just bad writing. It's so irritating! I don't want to continue listening if I'm missing items.

Shane East...

Shane East’s impression of a female’s voice absolutely ruins this performance for me. Elizabeth Louise is amazing and does a great job reading the male parts.

I wish that books on Audible would have a man read for the male dialogue and a woman read for female dialogue.

Highly frustrating

What would have made After We Collided better?

This book was way to long and the character of Tessa is not a likeable person ,she's a whinge and is very judgemental and amazing obtuse for a supposedly intelligent person

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I like the female narrator, however the male portrayal of the tess was not good and bought down the overall performance.

What character would you cut from After We Collided?

Ty and tess, it becomes extremely frustrating the back and forth fighting match between Hardin and Tessa and the frustration of ty thrown into the mix.

A haunting depiction of an abusive relationship

Enjoyed the first book and its laying out of human flaws especially in love but this second book is dangerous. Seeing into the head of both characters we are supposed to feel sympathy for the thought processes of both as they repeatedly torture each other. Rationalizing their actions based on their past or that 'This is just what they are like'.
The presentation of Landon as Tessa's friend was ruined for me as soon as he asked Tessa to go to Zed to ask him not to press charges. That's b*llsh*t.
The male narrators 'female' voice is also ridiculous and does not do any female characters justice.
This book is a great look into the minds of an abused girlfriend - constantly blaming herself for his actions - and a manipulative boyfriend.
If I had written it, they would have never gotten back together after he went to England. A good character development would have been him dealing with being able to leave her to be happy and for her to find happiness with someone else .
But as it is this book throws them together time and time again, warping the readers views of relationships and general human decency.

It annoys me but I’m hooked

I really like the depth to both main characters and the portrayal of a relationship which acknowledges unhealthy behaviours however the repetitive fighting and making up is at this point becoming a little exhausting. Also the male voice actors portrayal of women’s voices has got to be one of the most unbearable things I’ve ever heard! More than once I had to take a break from listening as he was so cringeworthy!

Better and better.

I listened to After We Collided in audiobook format. The hits keep coming with this amazingly raw second book in the After series. There is no good time to stop listening because the story is so fast paced, intense and completely gripping. The narration was perfect and constantly managed to express the feelings and thoughts.
