The storyline was good and the idea pulled (get it?)me in, but overall it was too much!! There is a way to convey emotion and drama without spelling it out. I love romance and i absolutely believe in true love, but this was too unrealistic to me. There was too much talk of electricity and trembling and two beautiful people staring longingly into each other's eyes. I had to roll my eyes a few times

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
Disclaimers: I received an electronic copy of this book for review as part of the blog tour. I was not obligated to write a good review nor was I compensated for my review.
My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This book is my second book by A.L. Jackson and so I had high hopes for this one.
The premise sounded intriguing and so I decided to give it a shot. It wasn't like I thought it would be, but it was still beautiful in its own way.
I found Melanie Winters and Daniel Montgomery to be an intriguing couple to read about and enjoyed watching them interact with one another. Their story was interesting and I found myself flying through the novel.
A.L. Jackson's writing, just like last time, was incredible. I found myself drawn in by the way she crafted her story. She always writes beautifully.
However, I found the plot to be slightly unrealistic at times and certain elements of the noel bugged me. I don't want to say too much because I don't want to ruin anything. I'll just say certain aspects of Melanie and Daniel's romance bugged me.
I know some people will say that love is messy and this novel reflects that. However, there were still moments that irked me.
And yet, I still really enjoyed the novel. A.L. Jackson is a great writer and her story did draw me in. If you like romance, check this one out.
In Summary: A.L. Jackson is brilliant at writing stories centered around complex relationships that will draw you in from the very beginning. Intriguing characters and a complex plot combine to create an enjoyable read.
The Wrap-up: I did enjoy this book, but I left it feeling like it was slightly unrealistic and a little bugged by certain elements. However, I feel like many of the things that bugged me wouldn't have bugged other people. If you love romance, check this one out.

I didn't like nor did I hate this story. I felt it was unrealist
I didn't like nor did I hate this story. I felt it was unrealistic and at times all I wanted to do was throw the book across the room and scream. But I made it through slowly. Yes there was many times I put the book down and did other things. I couldn't connect with the characters because personally I felt they didn't have enough depth to them. I couldn't connect with the romance because it was unrealistic and flat for me. There is a few places where an attempted burst of emotion is used but I couldn't get into that either from the rest of the story falling short for me. I do however invite you to take the book for a stroll and make your own opinion about it. And I will read more from A.L. Jackson in the future.Was this review helpful?

I liked the idea of this book with the whole scenario of being "pulled" to another person with nothing being able to keep them apart, but I didn't quite buy into the reasons they were kept separated for nine years.Was this review helpful?

Melanie and Daniel's story was very believable, with their young love and pregnancy and loss of their daughter. Even the reason they were first separated was very logical (from a parent's standpoint) even though they could not see it at the time. However, I don't think that Daniel's family would have remained as uninvolved as they did for nine years.
Okay, with that aside, I did enjoy the book. Sometimes I was confused as to whose POV it was - Daniel's or Melanie's, but that was usually cleared up pretty quickly. Their backstory was told in flashbacks so that while you learned about them now, you were also learning how they came to be where they were today.
The whole idea of destiny is very romantic when it comes to your true love, and this also had a sense of danger thrown in with it - that force that will do whatever it takes to keep the lovers from reuniting. All in all this was a tearjerker at times and I would find myself urging both Daniel and Melanie to take that next step to get back to one another.
