A brief plot line
Tessa Young, the protagonist of the story is a smart, sweet and lovely young girl who has got the perfect life or at least she thinks so until she meets Hardin.
Tessa is not just your average American girl; she is pretty, smart and a beautiful young girl with ambition. She's got direction and has her whole life planned out ahead of her - which college she wants to attend, what she wants to be in the future and of course, she also has the perfect boyfriend in the form of high school jock, Noah. As she steps into Washington State University as an optimistic freshman, she runs into Hardin and her life changes forever.
Hardin captures her heart and her attention with his charming British accent, tousled brown hair, tattoos, lip ring et al. But that's not all there is to Hardin; he is cute and interesting and genuinely smitten with Tessa. But is he all that you see on the outside? As the story progresses you get to see a lot of layers to his characters and you understand that he is a young boy who carries a lot of dark secrets with him.
When he meets Tessa, he's completely smitten with her yet to mask his own feeling about her, he's rude often to the point of cruelty. Despite his unruly behaviour and attitude, Tessa should hate him. But instead, she finds herself drawn to him more and more. Until one day, the duo find themselves alone in his room.
Tessa is irresistibly drawn to him and his dark mood; and, when they kiss, it ignites a passion in her that she never knew existed inside of her.
He calls her beautiful and then insists that he's not the one for her and disappears again and again. He pushes her away again and again, and yet somehow, every time he pushes her back, he finds himself drawn close to her even more. Despite the way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all the lies.
Tessa has the perfect life and she is right track to a hot shot career, but when she meets Hardin, she is willing to risk everything just to find out the real person behind all that lies and layers. She fights so hard to overcome her own pride and Hardin's prejudice about nice girls like her.
Why would she do that, unless it is love?
Tessa Young is an 18-year old freshman college student with a simple life, excellent grades and of course, the sweet boyfriend. She has her entire future planned out ahead of her until she meets a rude British boy named Hardin.
Hardin, for his part, is deeply in love with Tessa but is a boy with his own secrets. He puts up a tough-boy, I-don't-care persona to the outside world just to hide his real self behind those layers. He has tattoos, wears rings and does everything to push Tessa away.
