I simply loved it. I felt connected and captivated. She didn't over use metaphors or descriptions, but kept me aching for more with each word, each sentence. I also enjoyed the flashbacks, and the suspense of finding out their whole story. I loved how she switched point of views, which I don't think is always easy to pull off, but she did flawlessly. Beautiful, captivating, achingly romantic and heartbreaking.
5 STARS!!! A MUST READ!!!! (I'd give it more stars if I could)
Reading the excerpt of Pulled, I was immediately sucked into the story. The characters were so well-developed that I felt like I knew them personally. I loved the fact that Melanie and Daniel were not in a vacuum. This wasn't just a story about their relationship, but their lives. We were introduced to their family dynamics and all of the messy business that can come along with it. It was enough to give an understanding of where they come from, but not so much that it took over the real story. Pulled will take you on an emotional roller coaster as Melanie and Daniel discover one another and then lose one another only to find one another again.
There is plenty of romance, but it isn't your typical bodice ripper. There is enough spark to the story that someone looking for this will be happy, but I thought that there was so much more to it. Pulled explores a full range of emotions by all of the characters. The conflict was reasonable as were their reactions. Amy Lichtenhan manages to express them in such a way that they were fresh and intriguing rather than overly predictable.
Overall I thought this was a great novel about the enduring power of true love and the importance of communication and forgiveness. This one is going to be one that I will recommended again and again.
The story opens with a bang, giving us a glimpse into two destroyed lives. After teenage Daniel and Melanie lose their premature daughter their relationship falls apart following a series of extreme circumstances that seemingly severs their connection forever. I really liked how the past and present were interwoven and ran parallel. As their lives unfold, we see how the past has affected their current situations and it made for very interesting storytelling. I was hooked from the beginning, reading more and more just so I could find out all the details of the lovers' past.
The chemistry between the two was scorching hot, and when they're in the room together you can literally feel that 'pull' the author describes. I got chills when Daniel and Melanie again after nine years...when they get a second alone it's all they can do to keep from kissing...it was one of my favorite moments of the book!
However, there were a few things that kept me from giving this book 5 stars. For one thing, I felt that the idea of teen pregnancy was a bit too glorified. I get that Melanie and Daniel were in love, but there is nothing romantic about a high-school student getting pregnant. For some reason Daniel's parents are thrilled with the idea that their 18 year old son has knocked up a 17 year old high school Senior. They even help the two conceal the pregnancy from Melanie's parents which just disgusted me. It just all seemed a bit unrealistic to me that everything came together the way it did.Read more ›

What scares me about this book is the juvenile, immature mentality of the author. I fear for young women growing up and reading this, expecting some connection with real life. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Rosalind Sedacca
