Summary

Book Four of the After series - now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd's After fanfiction racked up one billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the Internet's most talked-about book for yourself!

Tessa and Hardin have defied all the odds, but will their fairy tale ending be turned on its head? After Ever Happy....Life will never be the same.

It's never been all rainbows and sunshine for Tessa and Hardin, but each new challenge they've faced has only made their passionate bond stronger and stronger. But when a revelation about the past shakes Hardin's impenetrable façade to the core - and then Tessa suffers a tragedy - will they stick together again, or be torn apart?

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?

Speechless

Just like the first 3 books, this one is a jaw dropper. I literally cant get enough of this book series and i cant wait to listen to 'Before'.
The ending is everything you hoped and more and just so god dam refreshing to not be disappointed by the ending of the book, youll see what i mean! . If you havent started this series then you missing out! I have anxiety about what to read next after 'before' because i dont think anything can live up to be as good as this series.

Incredible

I absolutely loved everything about this series. I couldn’t put it down once I’d started & have not been this invested in a book for a very very long time, if ever tbh. Elizabeth Louise was great throughout, Shane East was a brilliant Hardin - though his female voices weren’t the greatest, it was still very enjoyable. I’m so sad to have finished this story!

Soo happy

Loved it. Satisfying ending and actually feel like I can walk away happy not needing more like I normally do, which can be either good or bad to some, but I'm happy.
Great set of books, different to the usual love story in some ways but still not to far to lose the romanticism.

Loved every book!

I waited until I was done with all the books to write a review. Yes, Tessa pissed me off sometimes and I rolled my eyes so many times but I tried to remember how I was at 18 and in love and yup 🙄. I absolutely loved this book and I laughed and cried and wanted to throw my phone across the room at times because of some of the things Hardin did😂. But it was such a lovely story. Be patient with Hessa, it's so worth it!!! Oh and fu@$cking Trevor 😂😂😂

Best book so far

Would you listen to After Ever Happy again? Why?

Yes because it was a good book. I listened to After three times. Yes I would listen to all four books in the After series again.

What did you like best about this story?

There were many moments in this book. One thing I can say is this book pulled out all of my emotions. I cried so much, I laughed I got turned on and I got angry you name the emotion and I felt it.

What does Shane East and Elizabeth Louise bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved the way Shane East talk both narrators did a wonderful job. If I had read the book I would not have been able to do the British accent even in my head.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes as I said above I did both I cried and I laughed. Hardin said some of the funniest things, but Tessa made me laugh as well.

Any additional comments?

This is the second time I've given a review on the books that I listened to. The other time was on After 1,2 and 3. I talked about how much I enjoyed listening to those books and this fourth book did not disappoint. I know I will remember this series for a long time to come and will always be looking for something that could top it.

Now I'M Happy Ever After

This series has been a struggle for me...the idea/concept is a wicked and interesting study of damaged people and the cruelties they can effect on others. The story of Hardin and Tessa is FINALLY over with this book and I am so relieved. Actually, this and the first book were pretty decent...the second and third were mostly an exercise in frustration at just how much this story could be drug out with the characters repeated the same mistakes and discussions ad nauseum. I got so frustrated with the characters ALMOST getting a grip on themselves only to make really stupid decisions over and over and over. There is merit in some of Ms Todd's writing and it appears that she has grown some in this last book. Some of her phrasing and situations were genuinely funny and her attention to the struggles of addiction and recovery is admirable. The narrators took some getting used to but things did improve with the addition of Shane East. The only issue is that his Tessa was not nearly as good as Elizabeth Louise's Hardin. I am now happily over After.

Wow

This book brought the entire series together! I had so many mixed emotions after the 2nd and 3rd book because I loved the characters but certain things really bothered me about Hardin and Tessas relationship it was not a healthy relationship and I was not sure how the author was going to end the series without ruining it all, but I am so beyond happy how she completely twisted and turned the story into a lesson showing her readers that it’s not ok to be in an unhealthy relationship and that both Hardin and Tessa needed to grow separately before they can be happy together! It’s unlike any other love story out there and I am so happy with it. The only thing I wish for is that she would come out with little short stories to fill in the gaps at the end of the book, I would love to read a short story on their wedding and the their experience with their pregnancy with their two children!

I cannot begin to Express how much I Absolutely Loved this entire series!! Although I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. I know it won't be nearly as good as the books.

The Best One!!!!

This book was more up and down, back and forth, but man oh man was the slow burn worth it. When I 1st started listening I knew this book was going to make me turn on Hardin, but by the 10th chapter I knew they were going to make it. I'm not even done listening yet and I know they are going to make it. Wahoo Hessa forever!!!!

Well! That sucked!!

The author dragged out the last three books with repetitive storylines repetitive behavior round and round only to rush through this last one. We the readers suffered through page after page of Hardin’s Insufferable toxic disrespectful selfish narcissistic behavior only to skim over his reform Is renewed self is new found decency... this book was a waste of my time! There’s a reason why Charlotte Brontë Jane Eyre and Rochester is so beloved over 100 years later the characters had Depth they had growth! Rochester was broody with a painful past but he was not consistently emotionally abusive to Jane! I understand not all relationships follow the same playbook but to drag this toxic story out for so many books only to act as if the author got tired of them tired of writing about these two! She rushed the ending! There was no good feeling at the end of this one, so many unanswered questions so many missed opportunities to have been a better ending to this twisted saga!

The Best series ever listen to!!!!

From beginning to the end, the time we listen to the series of these books, it is amazingly spent. This author makes all of our first loves well worth waiting for. Think about your first love, would it really work out like this, or is it just our dreams?
