If you thought the movie was cute. If you felt that the leading man Hardin was sexy, cute, brooding, and incredibly intriguing... and you thought the book series would have to be a fantastic... if you read that this movie was based on a fanfiction starring harry styles... DO NOT READ THE BOOKS! I give the screenwriters, producers and directors a ton of credit for making something that was a pleasure to watch out of a pile of steamy reeking bull dodo. The book - characters are in an abusive back and forth childish obsession. So juvenal, each chapter was like groundhog day, rinse and repeat.
