eBook Pulled 5 StarsWow, I am not even sure how to convey how much I loved this book, so I will start at the beginning. I started this as an audiobook, and I was just listening, going through Goodreads and then BAM! I was thrown the biggest curve ball and had to quit listening and switch to the book, so I could find out what was going to happen sooner. Melanie and Daniel met when they were sixteen years old. Daniel was ten months older and thought he was too cool for his younger sister’s friend, until he laid eyes on her. Daniel and Melanie have an instant attraction, a pull to each other. This isn’t a case of instant love though, no Melanie and Daniel date for years through high school until tragedy tore them apart. Nine years later Melanie is in a loveless marriage. Daniel has successful completed his medical degree, but has never moved on - he goes from one one-nght stand to the next. One chance encounter has the two back in each other’s lives, but they have so heartache to overcome. This story is told from both Melanie and Daniel’s point of views. It alternates from the past and present, going from the day they met until things ended, and then the present of them coming back together. Pulled had me crying at the heartbreak these two must of felt as their worlds came crashing down at the age of 18. Then my heart was racing when they were finally going to meet again. This story had the perfect amount of twists and turns to keep you engaged and longing to see what would happen next. As with all of the A.L. Jackson books I have read, the writing is beautiful and moving, it had me crying one chapter and smiling the next. If you have missed this one, I highly recommend reading.

Good Kindle Pulled 5 Heartbreaking StarsPulled is a story that completely and utterly pulled at my heartstrings. It was an emotional and heartbreaking tale of getting a second chance at a first love, and surviving and coping with loss. AL Jackson’s writing captivated me. My heart beat fast, I found myself in tears more than once, and I felt my heart shatter for these two beautifully broken characters. It’s been nine years. Nine years since Melanie has seen or heard from the love of her life, Daniel. After one catastrophic incident, she’s suffered alone. She’s remarried, but her life is tragically unhappy. She’s lived through the pain of loss, and losing Daniel, too was the final straw. She’s grown accustom to this painful life she now lives. Losing Daniel after everything else was never supposed to happen. They were supposed to be happy, to be together.I missed him, almost more than I could bear. This was never supposed to happen to us. We were supposed to make it… we should have made it. Daniel’s last nine years haven’t been much better. He’s drown himself in school, then work. Trying to stay so busy that he doesn’t have to constantly think of all he’s lost. But Melanie always finds her way back into his thoughts. He’s never been able to move on. One night stands, sure- sometimes, but Melanie is the only love he’ll ever have. He’ll never move past her. When Daniel goes into a business meeting to discuss his new medical practice with his father, the very last person he expects to see is Melanie. But she’s there. With her husband. He can tell she’s not happy, that she’s been living in the same hell as he has. Seeing her was like seeing a refection of myself, a mirror of my pain, my loss, my regret. A mirror of what stirred within me now- this love that had refused to die. She had found me. I had always felt her heart calling to mine just as mine called to hers, this power bringing us together once again.Once Daniel see’s her again, he’s determined to get her back. He can’t keep going on like this. He can’t live without her any longer. Melanie and Daniel have a rare kind of love. It’s real, raw and true, pure and all consuming. They were torn apart by circumstances out of their control, and later by some terrible misunderstands. After all the years have past, so many things are different. But some things have stayed the same- they still are one half of each others soul.“Erin called us soul mates, but I… I’ve always known it was more than that. It’s like we share the same soul, and when we’re apart, each half is looking for the other.”
Their connection is intense and beautiful. My heart finally felt happy the times they were together. All they want in life is to be able to finally be together and happy, like they should have been all along. It’s not all that easy. Melanie is living with an abusive husband, and Daniel has some complications of his own right now. It seems impossible that they will be able to fight all thats up against them and be able to be together, where they belong. But they have no other option. They can’t be apart. “I’ll never let you go again, Melanie. Never. Nothing will come between us… nothing.” I would destroy anything, anyone who tried to take her from me. Being away from her was no longer an option. She was mine, only mine.
“Never,” she promised again, unwavering, unshakable. The amount of heartache and despair I felt was totally worth it when it was all said and done. It is such a beautiful and emotional tale of finding a second chance at first love and overcoming some seriously painful pasts. I am shocked to find out that this was AL Jackson’s debut novel. I am impressed! If you’re looking for a heart wrenching read and you love a second chance romance like me, I would highly recommend this one!

  9. 3.5 4 s Daniel and Melanie were high school sweethearts and intended to get married until a horrific event occurred that shattered all their plans Now, it s nine years later and a lot has changed The story is told in the present with flashbacks to the past Thankfully, we get both their POVs because they are both pretty messed up.I liked Melanie when she was younger and then after but not so much in the middle and that s pretty understandable I really couldn t believe what she did with Nicholas B [...]


  10. I feel like somebody sprinkled me with water from the flower can and kept repeating Cry,cry Common It s a tear jerker book Sorry, it just never got to me Also,there is just something fundamentally wrong with being happy over the fact that a random woman wanted to marry your solemate and got pregnant in order to do that,and in doing so subsequently gave you a son The one you could not have because your solemate killed your kid and your chances of an other pregnancy by being a reckless driver.More [...]

  12. 3.5 Stars Why Because throwing shirts on floors does not count as a sex scene I did enjoy it, but it was very angsty and it was seriously laking in sex anticipation, which is good since there wasn t ANY I can t believe I read a CLEAN book and enjoyed it, but I did This writer reminded me a lot of Lisa Marie Rice, very heavy on the emotional But take heed there was NO alpha male It was hard to put down and satisfying.


  13. Wow I have absolutely no clue how this book has 4 stars It seriously took everything I had to finish it Everything about this book was predictable to me It was ridiculous to think that after nine years of being apart, the main characters have changed none whatsoever since they were sixteen years old I realize they are really in tune to one another but hearing a heart rate speed up is a bit overkill How Melanie and Nicholas get together is arguably the most ridiculous part of the story Though a c [...]
