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.

I found it very predictable and it dragged on far too long.

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.

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.

As indicated by my 2 star rating, this book was not so great for me. I do love A.L. Jackson's writing, and "Take This Regret" is one of the best books I've read in years, so I had high expectations of "Pulled" and maybe that's partially why I was left disappointed. I just felt there were countless things in this book that were just too implausible. I know we have to willingly suspend our disbelief to a certain degree, but "Pulled" just pushed me a bit too far. Here's a list of Unrealistic Things (In no particular order) I had an issue with:

*Some of these contain SPOILERS*

1. The H/h are basically telepathic. Now if this were a paranormal book, I'd have no issue with it, but this is not a PN book and these 2 have a freakish and otherworldly type of connection where they can actually almost speak to eachother and sense eachother from quite far away.
2. Since H/h have this strange connection, I don't see how they have SO many misunderstandings and confusion about where they stand with eachother. Really, if you can sense SO much about the other person, surely you know they aren't happy with someone else.
3. If you fly across several states to see someone, and you find an Other Woman in their place, wouldn't you confront your lover (Who is just in the shower!) before running right back to the airport? I mean, you're THERE in the house with them, just go knock on the damn bathroom door and say WTF is going on??
4. The big fallout was in 2000, yet no one calls, texts, emails, eachother just to touch base and say, "Hey, how are you recovering from your horrific accident?" Not even one word in MONTHS?? You can't have a friend or parent call and check either? With modern technology, it's not hard to reach people.
5.
