Melanie Winters and Daniel Montgomery shared a love most only dream of, a love they believed bonded them together for life.

When their world is shattered by the tragic loss of their daughter, overwhelming grief and misguided guilt distorts the truth, and their relationship ends in uncertainty and unanswered questions.

For nine years, they drift through life, each unable to forget the one who holds the strings to their heart. In an attempt to escape the pain of her past, Melanie finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, while Daniel loses himself in a career that means nothing without Melanie by his side.

Now, when their lives again intersect, neither can deny the connection they felt so long ago. But will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past, and will they have the courage to overcome the insecurities and fears that threaten to keep them apart?

Pulled is a story of attraction and separation, of destiny and duty, of a love so strong it refuses to give up even when all others have.

"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!" LitJunkie

 

Review

I have officially read every A.L. Jackson published novel. I adore her emotionally charged writing style, and she definitely brings that to the table with Pulled. This book kept me reading into the wee hours of the night. I literally made myself put the book away at 2am and try to sleep. But I couldn’t sleep. Melanie and Daniel’s tragic love story kept replaying in my head all night. I could not stop thinking about them until I knew how it was going to turn out.

Melanie and Daniel were high school sweethearts and completely in love. Tragedy strikes, hearts are broken, and they don’t see each other again for many years. Their love was intensely strong and powerful and soul reaching that they still have not recovered from their lose even after all those years.

Gawd, this book gutted me. My heart was in pieces. The characters had suffered so much that I just wanted to jump into the book, hug them, and help heal their pain. I really liked this story, not as much as some of the author’s other works, however it was very good. I did have some trouble with the plausibility of the circumstances that caused their nine year separation and the coincidences of fate that brought them back together after all those years.   That being said, I absolutely enjoyed this book very much, and I’m glad I read it.
