The Pull - Chelsie Shakespeare Rating 8/10What starts off as a slow read with an annoying main character turns into a beautiful love story of epic proportions! At times it took my breath away and the idea of reincarnation was just so fascinating it kept the pages turning. I thought that the past lives idea was well developed and made for a unique read.Filled with past life “flashbacks” for Evie, who at first seems very superficial, but grows on you. As well as “present moments” with great friends and acquaintances along the way. It is a novel of growth and love.The little things were so well described and I really felt like I was buying fish with Evie and Audrey while naming them all. The writing got better and better and at the end I could hardly put the book down. I had to know what happened!What I also really loved was that each chapter started with a quote from a song. I knew almost all the songs and found myself singing them throughout the day. “I wish you wisdom. I wish you years. I wish you armies to conquer all your fears. I wish you courage for all that life demands. I wish I could be there, but I can’t.” Marc Broussard, “Gavin’s Song” “And she walked along the edge of where the ocean meets the land just like she’s walking on a wire, in a circus.” Counting Crows, “Round Here”Once again another reason to accept Indie Novels. This is something every Romance lover should read. Chelsie Shakespeare has a bright future and I can’t wait for more of her novels.What I liked:* Songs before each chapter* Unique love story* The main character is not perfectWhat I didn’t like:* Started off slow
