About the Author

A.L. Jackson first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life. Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.

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)

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!

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.

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.

I didn't like this book much at all.

The two main characters, Melanie and Daniel, meet while in high school. They fall instantly in love as soon as they lay eyes on each other. They literally see each other, fall in love, he takes her hand and leads her up the stairs where they go make out for hours.

Through a series of unbelievable and unfortunate events, they break up several months later. Melanie is so upset by this that she goes out, meets a man 20 years older than her, has sex with him a few minutes later, and agrees to marry him and basically be his slave. She knows he is abusive, but she doesn't care. If she can't have Daniel, her life isn't worth living (UGH).

Daniel is emo about it too and has a series of one night stands ending up with one of the girls getting pregnant. This happens 9 years after the breakup of Daniel/Melanie and coincidentally occurs on the same day that Daniel meets Melanie again.

The whole "souls speaking to each other" thing was absolutely ridiculous. When Daniel and Melanie are near each other, they both start shaking and their "souls" constantly "speak" to each other somehow. It's really silly.

Throughout the entire nine years apart, they each are sickly sweet and overly sappy, doing things like crying themselves to sleep saying "I miss you Melanie/Daniel" into their pillows. It's cheesy and I spent SO much time facepalming and eyerolling while reading this. Terrible!

The plot continues, getting even more and more ridiculous as it goes on. The ending is even worse as everything somehow works out perfectly for Daniel and Melanie to get everything they ever wanted, even what was impossible.
