Product description

About the Author

Hey y’all! The Lone Star State will always be my home, but fifteen years ago, I took the plunge and became a New Yorker. NYC is an amazing place to find inspiration in my daily surroundings—the random and the ordinary that make up reality. My writing showcases inspired ideas, as well as my love for dichotomy, authenticity and humor. My goal as an author is to create relevant and strong female characters in Women's Fiction, and male leads that are imperfectly perfect. When not developing fictional scenarios on a laptop, I can be found at a soccer game with my husband and two children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful and Heartfelt Experience that I Never Wanted to End! 17 Oct. 2014
By Beth Simkanin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Album is a beautiful, emotional and heartfelt story, which follows the lives of five friends who experience life, love, loss and hardships in New York City over a seventeen-year period. If you have read Intermission and The Refrain by Ashley Pullo, then you know Adam, Chloe, Chris, Natalie and Zach. The Album is a remastered remix of those books, but it never feels that way. Reading this book transported me back to a place where I visited with old friends. And the story was just as compelling and fresh the second time around. Ashley has a unique style of writing that draws you into the world of these characters where every moment, every piece of dialogue and every emotion have meaning. Written from all five characters’ points of view, she peels back the layers of the characters. We see their confidence, their insecurities, their vulnerabilities, their joys and their fears exposed.

On the eve before cousins Chloe and Natalie LeGrange head to separate colleges, they make a pact to move to New York City to pursue their dreams. Years later they both make it to NYC, but things don’t quite turn out as they expect, leaving them disillusioned and wanting to find their purpose.

Three very different men have pivotal influences in their lives, and they come at a time when they are least likely to find love. Adam Ford is the controlled lawyer who just wants a woman to surprise him. Zach Parker is a lovable Marine who must make a life changing decision. And Chris Brooks is the charismatic Texan who just can't seem to find the right woman at the right time.

This is isn’t just a romance, although Ashley Pullo writes some beautiful and hot love scenes. It’s a story about friendship, outcomes and how life doesn't always turn out how we expect.

Ashley Pullo is a master craftsman at building characters. Adam, Chloe, Chris, Natalie and Zach are everyday people who are perfectly flawed and are trying to make their way in life like all of us are. She can transform a scene and make me feel as if I’m living it with them. She makes the story feel real. It becomes a true sensory experience. She can take ordinary, relatable experiences and turn them into a brilliant story where each decision made by the characters ties into the larger story. The dialogue between these characters is fresh and unique. She had me laughing out loud one minute and crying the next. She makes you feel these characters in such a beautiful way.

I didn’t just read this book. I lived it …I experienced it. I wish everyone would read this book. I guarantee you Adam, Chloe, Chris, Natalie and Zach will be characters you will never forget. What a beautiful and heartwarming story about love and life and all the experiences that happen as we live it. I never wanted it to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars still thinking about it 24 hours later 11 Nov. 2015
By Meredith Schorr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There was so much about this novel I really liked. I finished it yesterday evening and I'm stilling thinking about it now, which is something. I'm also not quite ready to sink my teeth into a new book, which rarely happens to me. The author is a great writer. The dialogue was witty and original, the writing style was easy, natural, and never felt forced. I cared about what happened to the characters. The relationships were deep and profound and although I saw the tragedy coming, I was devastated anyway. I'm a Generation X-er myself and although I'm a few years older than the characters in this book, and I enjoyed and recognized all of the pop culture references. While I'm not Canadian, my sister and I revolved our Sunday mornings around watching Degrassi Junior High, so those bits were especially fun.

There were a few things about the book that irked me a bit. Like I said, I'm only a handful of years older than these characters and I don't remember everyone being quite as sexually bold as they were in the early years - like barely out of high school. Sexually curious, of course; experienced, some of us; but that comfortable with our sexuality to talk about seducing older men and wanting them "inside her" just seemed completely unrealistic for girls of that age and one of the guys attitudes about sex at only 18 was also a bit over the top for me and it was painted like this was the "norm." Another problem I had was just how perfect and larger than life both Natalie and Chloe were. Sure, they had their issues, but they were prettier, hotter, smarter, better in bed, funnier, etc. than everyone else and it was a bit much. I wish not all of the relationships developed sexually first and then emotionally - one or two of them okay, but almost every relationship started with either a look across the room or very forward banter and before you blinked the two were having the best sex of their lives and then full-on in love. There was one relationship that took more than a hot minute to boil, but the author skipped over the development. I would have liked to see a little more development beyond sex. That being said, the sex was done really well - it was hot and not the same ole sex scenes you read all of the time, but it was painted like everyone went out and screwed the first person they saw and that no one ever dated, got to know each other, etc. Finally, the blurb mentions how the characters struggle with being in their twenties, but the book focused mostly on the relationships between the characters and very little on finding your way in other aspects of your life.

Despite my "issues", this book really touched me. I would absolutely recommend it to others and I already have The Ballad on my Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a beautifully written story about love 2 Nov. 2014
By Twinsie Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully written story about love, life, and loss with amazing twists and turns. We get to experience this story from all of the characters points of view. This helps tremendously with connecting with them all. We experience Natalie and Chloe letting go and trusting in love then experiencing great loss. These ladies show their true colors by being the best of friends, no matter how good or bad the situation. We see how Chris, Adam, and Zach all came to be and to see how they find love within the story as well. Throughout this story we see how they all come across one another and intertwine. I found myself laughing out loud one second and fumbling around for my kleenex by the next page.

A few of my favorite quotes:

"The stars dance like monkeys in the ocean and peanut butter tastes better with chocolate."

"Every great love story has a beginning, whether it's a planned meeting, a random encounter, or an impulsive jump into the unknown. But it's the middle of the story that really counts...expanding the verse and building the chorus."

"All ballads have a verse and a chorus - but the ending? That's just the beginning."

Ashley Pullo has an amazing story telling ability that had me laughing out loud, reading parts out loud to my husband, then pulled me back with big emotions where I almost needed to cry. Her characters can be crazy at times, but, hey! who hasn't been involved in some crazy shenanigans. Absolute amazing read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love NYC and The Album 23 Oct. 2014
By Kindle Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Admittedly, I was drawn to this novel because of the setting and the refreshing blurb. I love a good story, especially one that follows relatable characters on the course of their journey. The Album has five main characters with their own narrative, each expertly woven together to create a timeless tale. Brilliant dialogue, steamy sex scenes, clever storytelling, raw & heartbreaking emotions, and smart humor - ALL ON ONE PAGE! Did I mention the sex? Don’t let the writing distract you from some serious action between the sheets. Oh, to be young in Manhattan…
Like others have mentioned, The Album is a television series inside a book. Not many authors can pull that off with such precision.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Song of Hopes and Dreams 4 Feb. 2016
By Amy M. Pope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There truly is nothing else out there with which to compare this novel. So, there will be no comparisons in this review.

The story revolves around two young women (cousins) who are just launching themselves into the big sea. The author did such a fantastic job in creating characters who engendered my immediate attention and interest. Natalie and Chloe were so dynamic and so endearing that I want to imagine that I could call them up today and say, "Hey, chick! What is up in your universe? Let's grab dinner or drinks this week."
What I found to be charming and unique was the lay-out of the story. In the beginning, I felt unsure of how this was going to work. I was concerned that it would be too loose and chaotic. I quickly realized that the plot actually was cleverly symbolic of the "growth through the journey" that these two young women experienced. Very clever and very well-executed! Very unusual.

Having lived "x" number of years and in a few of the vastly differing regions of the United States, I appreciated the personalities of all of the characters in this book. The building of who they would become in this future that they had tried to imagine as 18 year olds... such an adventure. Such a tangible and realistic journey. All of the excitement and energy, all of the heartache and doubt. All of everything was included in The Album. I am a musician (vocalist) and find both my greatest mode of expression and greatest solace in music. That facet of this book made it all feel particularly meaningful. I cried. The obvious culprit, sad sad SAD times. Millions of sad tears. The tears and semi-choking of belly-shaking laughter. Trillions of those! The most poignant tears were the tears that would track down my face as a result of having read a passage in this story that was so utterly beautiful... (still happening as I reflect on this book). There were numerous opportunities for all of these tears.

*Side note* The depiction of New York City. I feel like I want to live there! I fell hard for NYC!

How has your experience within your family formed who you are? How have your independent experiences shaped your beliefs and your dreams? Ashley Pullo wrote a book that examined those questions through a thoroughly riveting, entertaining story of two fascinating women, marching toward their futures with determination and with big dreams. She pulled no punches in the keeping it real department. I LOVED IT. (Sad portions, notwithstanding)

I quickly jumped into the follow-up novel, The Ballad. SOOOOOOOoooooo goooooooood!!!!!
