Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:

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.

Darkfallen's thoughts:
What an addictive, heart breaking, romantic read!

Melanie and Daniel have known since the day they met that they were made for each other. It's isn't just that their soul mates; it's more than that. You might even say they share a soul. But even that isn't enough sometimes. When tragic accident rips them apart, neither of them are the same. Barely getting by without the other one. But all that changes the day they find each other again. But it's not always easy even when the world seems to be pulling them back together. Can they finally overcome life's challenges, and get their happily ever after?

Wow, this was a book that I just couldn't put down. I was drawn with the need to know how it all worked out in the end. And you can't help but root for Melanie and Daniel. Their love and connection is so strong I couldn't help but wonder if it was almost paranormal. It's like they were made specifically for each other. Two halves of the same whole. It was just so sweet to read. And the things that they went through, both together, and apart, will break your heart. I couldn't help but tear up on more than one occasion. Especially when it came to the loveless marriage Melanie was in. I can't describe how much a hated Nicholas!

There are some parts in here that I felt were a little over-explained and that dragged a little. Especially in the beginning with all the flashbacks. I just felt the flashbacks were a bit to long, and gave away a bit to much; if that makes any sense. While I enjoyed the story I felt it could have been amazing had it just been tightened up a bit. Basically just let the reader have some imagination and not spell every little detail out for them. Still, I couldn't put this down the whole time. I just NEEDED Melanie and Daniel to get their HEA.

Overall this is a great sweet read, that will grip you to the very end.
