Wow. This story was exactly what I've been dying to read in a romance. It was heartbreakingly beautiful. The writing was flawless and intense. It flowed so beautifully, it was never tedious, and I was never bored. Instead I was captivated, enthralled. I absolutely loved Melanie and Daniel, especially the almost supernatural bond they seemed to have. From the first moment I was completely swept away by this achingly romantic tale. Amy captured all the characters, their emotions, their stories, relationships and especially the intense romance between Melanie and Daniel with such perfect prose, I found myself on the verge of tears nearly the entire time.

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)

Melanie and Daniel's connection was immediate and it was electric. I'm not talking about a physical connection, but that thing you feel when you are immediately comfortable in another persons presence. When you know that you are completely and totally accepted for who you are, faults and all.

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.

Okay, this one did it for me in a big way. I'm an angst-lover. And by that I mean, I'm a Thoughtless, Beautiful Disaster, Love Unscripted, Slammed, Fifty Shades of Everything, kind of reader. But there's gotta be an HEA. And not a half-done HEA but a real yeah-this-story-has-been-agonizing-but-look-it-was-all-worth-it HEA. So, that said, I earnestly recommend this book. If you're like me, you'll like this. Enjoy!

This is the first time Amazon reviews have steered me wrong. I didn't expect a literary classic but the reviews indicated a good story. At least an easy read. I haven't read worse. Contrived. Cheesy. Melodramatic. Sad sack weak characters. I cannot believe anyone enjoyed this drivel. Beautiful Disaster was at least credible and fun to read. This was tedious, annoying and the sappiest thing since daytime television ruled the airwaves. I recommend passing this one up u less you want all sickly sweet froth and no substance.

This is the first time I am writing a review on a book for Amazon. I always count on the reviews to help me decide on a book, but the reviews for this book were way off. I painfully got almost halfway through the book (while skimming the pages as well) and couldn't continue. I felt like I was reading a 9th grader's creative writing assignment after watching too many soap operas and reading too many Danielle Steel novels. The characters were one dimensional....too much angst. Daniel and Melanie's "magical" connection with the ability to sense eachother when near was hokey and unbelievable. These characters are in their mid to late twenties but they think and act like they are 15 years old. Nicholas's character as the controlling, abusive husband is so cliche as well. I did not like how the book jumped from present day to the past. It made the read choppy and disrupted the already poor flow of the story. I love reading because I like the escape of it. I vascillate with my reading from New York Times bestsellers to easy beach reads and "chick lit", but this book did not provide any escape. I kept sighing out loud while reading it, saying, "This is horrible!" Luckily I bought the book on my kindle for an inexpensive amount, but it still was a waste of money. I'll be more careful when going off of reviews in the future because I can't see how anyone gave this book five stars, not even a ninth grader.

I really enjoyed this book for the most part. The love story is compelling and I loved the idea of a magnetic pull between two people. No matter what happened, Daniel and Melanie always find their way back to each other, proving that their love is fated.

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.
