There are not enough words to tell you how much I enjoyed this book.  I have to admit I didn’t love the ending, though it was really good, but that is why it’s only 4 of 5 stars.  I can’t wait to read the next one.  There is too much to say about this book so I’ll just say that it touches on some hard subjects, has a new approach to mythology/paranormal romance, and leaves you wanting more.  There are a few twists in the plot that I wasn’t expecting that made this a read I couldn’t put down.  I like that it wasn’t extremely predictable and you became emotionally invested in the characters.  I will definitely be recommending this one, matter of fact I already have!

I did not read the synopsis before I read this book, I just knew it was NA para and that everyone said I "had to read".  It immediately sucked me in and did not let me go until the very last page and that last page did not even come close to being what I thought would happen.  I was floored by the ending and immediately had to begin book two.  That is not to say it had a cliff hanger.  It just took a twist and turn I did not see coming.  I love it when books can do that and you look back and say, "I should have seen that coming".  True love, new to me lore, and some amazing characters made this book one I now own in both paper back and e-versions.

It's the first day of college, and Naya is nervous enough, without her boyfriend coming up to her to make sure she was ok. It was more like checking up on her according to Naya. Any who Naya gets to the classroom first and so she sits down and reads her favorite book. Romeo and Juliet. Then we have Etash, a guy who doesn't like first days very much, and also likes to be the first person in the room to avoid everyone's stares. When he arrives he notices that another person is already there so he quickly moves past her and to his seat. Once the class gets rolling something happens between Naya and Etash. Each of them began thinking to themselves about the other and how they care for each other. Neither wants to admit anything and they try to think of other things. Naya is upset once she sees the scare on his face, while Etash has some sort of feeling but doesn't want anything to happen. He refuses to have is heart tramped on. On her way back to her room, Naya spies a paper for auditions. She decides to go because its Romeo and Juliet. Naya's boyfriend arrives and tells her to be ready for tonight's dinner. She tells him that she has auditions and can't make it. He gets mad by it and goes back out. Once the time comes Naya heads to the auditions, (where Etash will be the assistant director to) she and everyone else there start dancing on stage, even Etash danced. Once the dancing was over the director Elizabeth talks to Etash about the casting. He already know what she is going to say, and he refuses. Refuses to play Romeo, but he will play anyway if he wants to overlook the lack of shows from the year before. Whats harder for Etash is that Naya will be Juliet. What's worse is that Naya faints and gets hurt. Etash has to carry her to Elizabeth's office. When he picked her up new emotions flared tjrough him. He just wants to protect her. But after everything is calm and Naya wakes she goes back to her room, where Seth becomes overcontrolling boyfriend yet again. The following day Naya seed the mark on her face that resembles the scar on Etash's face. Nit being able to take she skips her first class. Etash also skips a class after he gets a book he needs for a class. He finds a myth about two flames that reminds him of what his grandma used to tell him. He quickly runs to do more research about this.  Jumping ahead to a part in the book that got me mad. It's the morning, after a bad night and as usual Seth calls a number of times before Naya answers it. He then rushes over checking to see if anyone is there and after she explained what happened he wouldn't forgive her. Instead he had her take off her shirt while he whipped her back with his belt. Plus it wasn't the first time he has done this! It annoys me that some people will just take that from someone who is supposed to be there for them. But at least things get better. After a bad night with Seth, Naya ends up at Etash's place. There they both talk and things are good for them both, and before you know it Naya is all over Etash. But you know that could be the wine talking...or that Seth has drugged Naya during their dinner. Being so worried about her, Etash lays with her and keeps her safe. The following morning Naya wakes up and she and Etash talk. Then they go for a walk and Etash tells her about his grandma's theory about them. The ending will be for you all to find out. The ending may just be my favorite part, Etash and Naya are amazing together, and their twin flames have been found finally. I want to read more of this! This book gets 5 stars.

'Pulled' is a very cleverly crafted novel. I was not quite sure what to expect after reading the synopsis and the first few chapters. Whilst the synopsis grabbed my interest, the first few chapters were a little slow and it took me a while to warm up to the main characters, yet warm up to them I did! The characters evolved to be interesting and positively 'likeable'. The character twists, their personalities and the plot development that surrounded the two key characters, Naya and Etash, effectively had me absorbed and very vocally cheering them on from the sidelines. Alongside the characters, Danielle Bannister weaved a gripping tale with an original concept making 'Pulled' a very enjoyable read. I was never quite sure where the author would direct her characters, what the outcome would be which I really liked. And the final outcome was certainly not what I expected, so bravo Danielle!
