Title: Pulled Within (Bar Harbor Series #2)

Author: Marni Mann

Genre: New Adult

Publisher: Booktrope (

Release Date: September 12, 2014



Storms can't last forever…can they?

For five long years, Rae Ryan has lived in a storm over which she has no control. Little by little, everything has been taken away from her—her job, her relationship, her best friend and her home. Plagued by nightmares and a terrible family secret, she carries her scars as much on the inside as she does on the outside.

Hart Booker, another disappointment from her past, returns to Bar Harbor and shelters her from the rain. He reminds Rae that forgiveness is possible, happiness can be found on the other side of darkness, and beauty rests beneath her scars. But a sinister figure lingering in the background seems determined to pull Rae back into a past she’s been trying to outrun. Can she survive the storm and become part of the light she so desperately desires? Or is she destined to remain
Pulled Within?

Recommended for mature audiences due to explicit language, sexual abuse, disturbing situations, and drug use.



Darra's Review:

Marni Mann's writing has evolved this series to make each book exceed the previous. Both books in these series can be stand alone and have such strong characters, you develop a need to know more about each one. I believe this is Marni Mann's best book I have read so far.

I loved the first book, Pulled Beneath. Drew and Saint were a winning combination and could not help but fall in love with both of them. When I learned that this story was about Rae, I was reluctant. She was not favored character in past book.

Boy was I wrong. I love her. Rae's life story was gripping, intense and  bleak but resilient. However with Brady's life on the rocks and Rae not having a happily ever after, I was Pulled into the book and read it non stop.

I try to stay strong, but I could not stop from crying. So much emotion from finding out the real Rae, you can't but feel her anguish.

Despite all the sadness of how Rae became Rae, Hart shows up after years of leaving her. His feelings are intense. How do you move forward with someone that left you behind? That is what Rae had to figure out. I am not telling anymore about their love story. It is just too good.

Fantastic book that leaves a dent in my massive book library in my brain. Definitely memorable.

I rate the book a 4.7. Very high on my book scale.  

Excerpt #3 from Pulled Within:
 “I don’t want my smell just here,” he said, kissing down my chest and stopping at the first closed button. His lips sat directly between my breasts. “I want it here, too.” The tip of his finger touched the middle of my thigh. “And here.” It moved closer to where my legs met. “And here.” Then it continued to slide up until it stopped on my clit. He only gave me the edge of his finger, and with hardly any pressure. It was enough to stop my breathing. “I want this spot to always smell like I’ve been here.” My back arched as he licked across my collarbone. “And I don’t think I can wait any longer to taste it.”
I didn’t think I could, either. Without the counter behind me, my body would have melted into the floor. He owned it now - every drop of moisture, every thought, every breath that came from my lips.
“Let me have it, Rae.” His lips were pushing the shirt aside while he worked his way over to my nipple. “Let my tongue make you come.”
I moaned into the air, and my eyes closed. I’d already given him control, but his words confirmed how deeply he was able to reach within me and the intensity of everything that swirled together now. “I’m yours.”
His breath caressed my neck and wrapped around the base of my chin. “Fuck…I’m going to devour you.”
