Book Blurb:
For nine years, they drift through life, unable to forget the one who holds the strings to their hearts. 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 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 do 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.

My Thoughts:

Pulled by Amy Lichtenhan will surely make you feel different intense emotions from the beginning till the very last page! It would be one hell of a roller coaster ride that would bring you down low and will toss you up high.

This book is probably one of the most emotional and heart wrenching book I've ever read. Pulled is a very different read in which  you can't help but feel the intense emotions that the characters inside the book feels. It's the kind of book you wouldn't want to miss reading.

Of course, those who goes and reads my blog regularly, knows I'm such a sucker for intense dramas and that is why I knew that this book is something I would love. This is not a simple romance that we all read. It has depth and intensity that will surely captivate you., it will imprison you until you've read the last word.

The characters are complex. Melanie and Daniel are very complex characters that  are not perfect. And I liked them that way because it makes them more real and because of it, the emotions that the author tried to convey went straight to my heart as a reader. What they went through together and apart made them grow into someone a reader can relate to. Although, I must say that there were times that their actions frustrates me and I'm shouting inside my head to them to just get back together already! And I guess it's one of the reasons why I think this book is great because I think if a book didn't frustrate you (in a good way) somehow then the author of that book failed because the book didn't made you feel but this book "Pulled" succeeded in making me feel and that is good!

I love how Ms. Amy Lichtenhan shifts the timeline and points of view in this book. The shifts/flashbacks helped in maintaining the mystery of the plot. It holds the curiosity of the reader. You'd keep reading it, wanting to know what happened between Melanie and Daniel and how they end up to where they were in the present. The different points of view also helped in making this book interesting because Melanie and Daniel have these contradicting points of view and you'd confused and curious and yet you'd really empathize with what they are going through and what they feel.

Do I have to say more about Melanie and Daniel's chemistry? Well, all I can say is that you will really feel the 'PULL' they feel for each other. 

I want to say Congratulations to Ms. Amy Lichtenhan for having the guts to stray from the usual romance and offer her readers something more than what the usual romance do.
