"How did a tomboy from Asheville end up in New York – Downtown even?” asks Levi.
Cracking her knuckles, Thessaly laughs nervously. This is that moment – the one where the truth becomes a part of the story arc. Turning into him, she admits, “I followed a boy.”
Levi's mouth hovers near Thessaly’s lips as he whispers, “You don’t like to follow.”
Caught up in the sexual tension, Thessaly's mouth twitches in anticipation. “And you?” she hushes.
“I nudge.”




You want a book that tells it like it is about New Yorker's with a love story mixed into it?  Then this is the book for you!

Ashley Pullo totally captured the feel of living in New York in your 20's with this story of Tess & her journey finding herself and those around her.


As soon as I started reading this book, I fell in love with Tess, Levi and all the characters.  They are funny, loving, smart mouths who instantly hold a place in my heart.  I am a New Yorker so I could totally relate to how Tess felt about struggling to find herself and owning it.  Also could totally relate to the dating scene in NYC.  It's a tough one!

Tess & Levi = An awesome couple who felt so real and so what I wish I could have in my life some day.

Ashley Pullo knows how to write stories that you can relate to.  She adds her special spicy ingredient the only way she knows how & it just traps you in!


Well developed characters, real life events, NYC as the backdrop.. its the perfect read!

Go grab your fall blanket, put on your comfy PJ's and get your Hot Cocoa or  Starbucks coffee and enjoy this wonderful read by Ashley.



I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment in this book.

A Must Read for 2015!

Hey y'all!
NYC is an amazing place to find inspiration - the random and the ordinary that make up reality. My writing showcases inspired ideas, as well as my love for dichotomy, authenticity, pop-culture, and humor.
Dreams need chasers.
