Do Tessa and Hardin end up together in 'After Ever Happy'?

The After film series and book series are primarily based around the tumultuous relationship between Tess and Hardin. At the end of the previous film, After We Fell, the duo grapples with relationship strains and familial obligations, especially as Tessa's alcoholic father, Richard, returns to her life.

During the events of After Ever Happy, Tessa and Hardin's relationship hangs in the balance once more. Hardin is unable to deal with his true father's identity and abandons Tessa in London to drown his sorrows in drink. She offers him a chance to leave for the US with her, but he declines, and she returns to find her father dead. Tessa initiates a breakup and says she's moving to New York with Hardin's brother, Landon.

While they are apart, Tessa begins working at a restaurant with Landon, and Hardin begins attending Alcoholics Anonymous upon graduating from university. When Hardin visits New York, he and Tessa slowly reconnect, but when Tessa discovers a manuscript about their relationship in Hardin's belongings, she becomes upset and ends their relationship.

After the book's publication, she attends one of Hardin's book signings but doesn't approach him after misinterpreting a glance between Hardin and a woman in the crowd.
