Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: Tessa and Hardin have had enough surprises.  Their bond is stronger than ever, but ever new challenge they face shakes their foundation-and Hardin's impenetrable facade-to the core.  As the shocking truth about each of their families emerges, it's clear that 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 within Hardin, and she knows she's the only one who can calm when he erupts.  He needs her.  But the more layers of his past that come to light, the darker he grows, and the harder he pushes Tessa-and everyone else in his life-away.  After all this time, Tessa's not sure if she really can save him-not without sacrificing herself.  Is love worth losing identity?  She refuses to go down without a fight.  But who is she really fighting for-Hardin or herself?   

Cover: I think the cover of this novel is so cute, with it's pretty colors and sunshine.  It's just so happy, which makes sense given the title and the fact that this story does have a lot of happy moments to it.

My Review: This is definitely my favorite of the After books because this is the one where everything falls into place.  Tessa brakes, but then finally realizes that she needs to be more independent and figure out what she wants out of life.  (Plus, she's less annoying and whiney in this book which makes me very happy)  Hardin reverts back to who he was before Tessa when he finds out about his family, but then he is able to bring himself out of it and finally change to be the man he kept saying he wanted to be.  It was kind of sad that it took Richard killing himself for Tessa and Hardin to figure all this out, but at the same time it had to be something dramatic because the two of them had already gone through things where they said things would be different.  Tessa needed to go through the emotions, or lack thereof, of what she went through when her dad died, as sad as it was.  It brought so many things to light and allowed her to realize that she didn't need Zed (finally, am I right?) and that as much as she loved Hardin, she needed space.  And the space was a good thing because obviously they were going to end up together it was just a matter of when they would be 100% together.  Can you imagine if after 4 books they ended up breaking up?  I would have been so mad.  Also, the epilogue is the greatest thing.  I loved everything about it.  Except I am very confused as to whether they actually ended up getting married or not, but I feel like I read somewhere that Anna Todd explains it better in Landon's books, I don't know though.

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!xxx
