REVIEW: Pulled Beneath

pulled-beneathAfter her parents are brutally murdered, Drew Stevens finds her world turned upside down. With doors opening all around her, she has more unanswered questions than she knows what to do with.

And everything she thought she knew, has been a lie.

As the truths continue to unravel, she stumbles upon Saint, a guy whose reputation is as tumultuous as his past. His scars are too deep, and Drew’s are so fresh, they have the power to heal each other’s painful wounds.

But the very thing that brings them together is the same thing that keeps them emotionally caged.

Can they work through their differences, or will they be Pulled Beneath the darkness of their pasts?

*This book was given to me for an honest review.

Where to start? There are so many good points to this book, one of them being its total unpredictability. After tragedy strikes and you realize there’s big secret you kind of think, that you know what it is and the rest of the book is going to be dull and boring because you figured it out already. That is not the case, keep reading!

Drew, what interesting name for a female. Drew was a real person to me, usually you either love love love the female lead, other times you want to stab her with a fork because come on no female is that needy and idiotic (in my opinion) but Drew has a quiet strength and I like that she’s so human for lack of a better word.

Saint, I wish we got a bit more into his head than we did but I liked him, he wasn’t all brooding caveman save the day, his pain made him human as well, and I wonder if they would end up together if they didn’t suffer loss. hmm…

Gianna, best female best friend, she up there with the greats and I want her to have her own book. You can mesh it with Brady’s, I like Brady for some reason. I swear everyone in this book with the exception of Gianna is messed up and its awesome! I’m tired of the too perfect 20-somethings, no one is that flawless all the time.

Brady and Rae were very interesting secondary characters, Rae turns out to be surprisingly bat-shit crazy and it was kind of great and kind of unsettling, I would love to know more about her and her story.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I wish I was photographer or at the very least swim in below 0 temperatures for hours at a time like these crazy people. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Drew and Saint get married in the water with their wet suits and Drew give birth in the water as well. Their like mermaids, sad mermaids.

Happy Reading! Thank you for the chance to read and review your book Marni! 🙂



Wishlist Wednesday #17

Wishlist WednesdayWishlist Wednesday is a book blog meme where I will post about one book per week that has been on my wishlist for some time, or just added, that I can’t wait to get off the wishlist. 

Thank you, Pen to Paper for hosting such a wonderful weekly meme!

For this Wishlist Wednesday…drum roll please…..

First comes love, then comes marriage . . . and then comes That Baby, the final book in the That Boy trilogy by USA Today bestselling author, Jillian Dodd.

It’s amazing how a few little words can change your life.
It starts with a simple I love you.
It’s made official with I do.
And becomes incredible with I’m pregnant.
Jadyn is the girl I love. The girl I’ve always loved.
Our lives are like single threads meticulously woven together—the result an exquisite tapestry of past, present, and future.
Then there are the words that will unravel me.
A few little words that will change my life.


I’ve been waiting for this book, when I first devoured That Boy and That Wedding and now that it’s finally here I can’t find it. So it it’s still on my wishlist.

What’s on your wishlist?
