    Too much

    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

    Too much

    There is such thing as "too much of a good thing." I am a hopeless romantic, but this was just too much. I think the author had a great story line, but I still had a hard time with the repeated "I could feel you!" "I felt you!" "I heard you!" And the relentless "I was PULLED to you." It was too much. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it) I found myself skimming through much of this book, especially the end.

    Disappointed

    I read Take This Regret and enjoyed it, but this one missed the mark. It had potential and a good story line but delivery failed. The beginning and end were good, but I found myself skimming through the rest of it. The realist in me didn't buy into the "pull" between the Melanie and Daniel. I agree with other reviews that it was a bit much. Also, the relationship between Melanie and Daniel's family is a bit over the top.

    This is officially my favorite book so far! The love that Melani

    This is officially my favorite book so far! The love that Melanie and Daniel share is so intense it will steal your breathe. The tragedy that set in motion the series of events that tore them apart broke my heart. I kept having to put my nook down and walk away to clear my emotions so I could read some more. From the beginning Nicholas gave me the creeps and it killed me when Melanie put herself in that situation. Thankfully Daniel and Melanie were brought back together. It was a long road for them, and even toward the end they still had surprises to deal with. This will be one of the books I find myself reading several times. A.L. Jackson you are an amazing writer!

    Another great novel! I chose to read this book as I had read her

    Another great novel! I chose to read this book as I had read her other book Take This Regret and loved it. This one did not disappoint. It was a gripping story of love, hurt, and pain. A page turner from the beginning. The only thing disappointing for me was that I didn’t have the time to read it fast enough. Make sure you give yourself enough time to be able to read this and not have to put it down.

    Two people who have fallen so madly in love and are so in touch with each other, an amazing story as they come back together. This book was written very well with its switching back and forth between past and present. The way she wove the beginning in with the ending was seamless. The characters, their families, and the others who were so close. Wow what a story!

    Be prepared to feel all the emotions. This author is now an auto-buy for me.

    This was a wonderful, heartbreaking, gut-wreching, but oh so eve

    This was a wonderful, heartbreaking, gut-wreching, but oh so ever, sweet and loving story. You just know that Melanie and Daniel are meant to be, but there are so many obstacles that come between them, and those rifts first started when they were young teens. A horrific situation happened to these soul mates, that eventually separated them... for Nine Long Years. Now they are in their late twenties, and they are brought together again, but there is still so much mixed/past emotions, and there are new situations that come in their way. Can these two even look at each other in the face when they eventually re meet? Is their too much in their past that prevents them to move forward together? Will they be pulled apart again?...

    This was such a great read! It really was! I felt so many emotions, while reading, and I love feeling like that as it just brings me closer to the story, to the characters. There are some great moments here, including from the past, when Melanie and Daniel first meet. Speaking about the past, I thought the flashback excerpts were really helpful, and they made me understand their history, their relationship much much better I love that we read from both Melanie and Daniel's POV. That too was great, as we read the decisions they made, and some are seen as mistakes, so you read what made them do this or that, so its pretty clear reading the two POVs.

    Now, I do not want to give too much, as there are definitely some twists and turns here, so be prepared for that! What I enjoyed, though, were the two main characters. Melanie has, in a way, been on her own, especially these past nine years with an older and somewhat controlling husband. That guy, Nicholas, was a jerk. Plain and simple. The stuff he does to Melanie are just uncalled for, and you'll see what I mean. I do think that Melanie's character does strengthen, and again you'll read how. Now to Daniel...he is such a perfect guy. Ok maybe not perfect, as he has made mistakes (who doesn't!) but honestly, how he is with Melanie; oh man there were just sweet and tender moments there; moments you could just feel throughout the pages. He is just so wonderful with her. They sincerely are meant to be. As mentioned, Daniel has made some mistakes, including a big one, before he re meets Melanie, but you'll see that 'mistake' turn into being something pretty special; you might say a lovely miracle...

    I have read A.L. Jackson's other Novel: Taking Regret, and that story, and this one, has incredible writing! I really love Jackson's writing style, and how she makes you feel connected to a character. For me, I just love that. Pulled is one great, romantic, emotional, and pulling read that makes tearful misunderstandings have the possibility to brighten up somehow, and you'll just have to read this story, to see what happens, you just gotta! I look forward to reading more of this Author's work, and what I got left to write is, I very much Recommend this Novel!

    4.5/5

    Beautiful but unrealistic.

    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.

    Amazing. Pulled was romance at it's finest. And I loved it.

    Amazing. Pulled was romance at it's finest. And I loved it. Sometimes teen age love fades, but sometimes it is so strong and holds a future for both the boy and the girl. Daniel and Melanie had a special kind of love....one that entwined their very souls and pulled at their hearts for nine long insufferable years. Ever pulling them back together despite the lies and despair that had kept them apart, each of them speaking to the other across many miles and heartache. I could not hope for less than a happily ever after ending!

    Ms Jackson wrote a heart rending love story. Her characters were young and touching and oh so full of life. Their drama was born of misunderstandings and deceit from those around them. Their hearts were always linked. As the story progressed we saw growth in both main characters and healing. The writing was smooth and inviting as well as riveting....I certainly could not put the book down. I would give this story...a GREAT read!

    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.

    more from this reviewer

    I liked the idea of this book with the whole scenario of being

    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.

    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.

    After I read Take this Regret I was all ready for another emotio

    After I read Take this Regret I was all ready for another emotional read from Ms. Jackson and I wasn't disappointed with this book at all. I actually liked this story better. It sucked me in from the very first page and I actually read through this book much faster than I have the past couple books I have read. I really connected to both the main characters in this book. There were NO instances where either one of them annoyed me in any way. I felt for them immensely and I loved seeing how their story played out over the course of the book.

    I think that the blending of the past into the present was really well done. It flowed really well and in each instance where the past was brought in, it was just the perfect time in the present story. (That makes much more sense in my head!) I think we learn about the past just when we need to. It's more smooth and it's not like a huge past information dump at the beginning of the story.

    I really like how Melanie and Daniel's souls are connected. They haven't seen each other for nearly a decade, but the minute they are close, they can feel each other even though they have no idea they are even in the same city. You can feel the love they have for each other and you feel compelled to root for them no matter what. I also really loved Daniel's family, they were the family that everyone dreams of being a part of, at least I know I did!

    I know that there are those readers out there that will think that he treated Vanessa horribly and he did, but I didn't blame him one bit. He was taken advantage of and I know that this type of thing probably happens often. I think he handled it like a lot of men probably do. I did see the end of that part of the story coming from a mile away, but it didn't bother me that I predicted it. I think that the whole story had a wonderful and very heartfelt ending.

    Overall, I loved this book. I think that Amy has a wonderful way of telling very emotional stories. I didn't cry as much with this one, but that may be because I wan't able to read it all in one sitting. For me, these are the types of stories that I get lost in. I start to feel so much for these characters and I just want them to be happy and I am so glad when everything works out in the end. I will read any books that Amy writes and I will probably love every one of them!

    What an addictive, heart breaking, romantic read! Melanie and D

    What an addictive, heart breaking, romantic read!

    Melanie and Daniel have known since the day they met that they were made for each other. It's isn't just that their soul mates; it's more than that. You might even say they share a soul. But even that isn't enough sometimes. When tragic accident rips them apart, neither of them are the same. Barely getting by without the other one. But all that changes the day they find each other again. But it's not always easy even when the world seems to be pulling them back together. Can they finally overcome life's challenges, and get their happily ever after?

    Wow, this was a book that I just couldn't put down. I was drawn with the need to know how it all worked out in the end. And you can't help but root for Melanie and Daniel. Their love and connection is so strong I couldn't help but wonder if it was almost paranormal. It's like they were made specifically for each other. Two halves of the same whole. It was just so sweet to read. And the things that they went through, both together, and apart, will break your heart. I couldn't help but tear up on more than one occasion. Especially when it came to the loveless marriage Melanie was in. I can't describe how much a hated Nicholas!

    There are some parts in here that I felt were a little over-explained and that dragged a little. Especially in the beginning with all the flashbacks. I just felt the flashbacks were a bit to long, and gave away a bit to much; if that makes any sense. While I enjoyed the story I felt it could have been amazing had it just been tightened up a bit. Basically just let the reader have some imagination and not spell every little detail out for them. Still, I couldn't put this down the whole time. I just NEEDED Melanie and Daniel to get their HEA.

    Overall this is a great sweet read, that will grip you to the very end.
