Paging Harry Styles!
“Tessa is a girl in college. It’s not me, but I’ve realized we have certain things in common,” 25-year-old author Anna Todd explained to E! News about the story. “The male lead in the story just looks like Harry Styles, but he is in college, not in a band. All of the 1D boys are in the story. Liam [Payne] is Harry’s stepbrother in the book. In the book Harry is Hardin, Louis [Tomlinson] is Logan, Liam is Landan, Niall [Horan] is Nate and Zayn [Malik] is Zedd….It’s a love-hate thing between Harry and Tessa. They hate each other in the beginning and they fight and then they fall in love. She breaks down all of his walls. It’s a very dramatic turn on. They are back and forth and up and down.”
The After series has generated one billion views online. It’s no wonder Paramount Pictures recently bought the rights to the four-book franchise.
I know what you’re thinking: Billions of views? A book and movie deal? Surely people hook up in these stories. Correct!
“There are definitely sex scenes. There is no S&M. They are regular sex scenes, but very detailed,” Todd explained to E! News. “It’s the vanilla version of Fifty Shades of Grey!”
So if you want to read a compelling tale where Harry Styles (but not actually) hooks up with a girl who could be you (but isn’t), here’s your next Kindle purchase.
