Sometimes what you always needed walks up when you least expect it...
I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of soul mates. When I read a certain popular series (that which shall not be named), I was intrigued, but hesitant at the idea of imprinting. I wasn’t pleased with the way it was handled in that particular series. Then, I read Significance. It was as if author Shelly Crane reached into my brain (and heart) and said, “Here you go... this is what you want.” And boy, was it ever. The romance... oh, the romance. Be still, my heart! I think I tingled from the top of my head to the tips of my toes the entire book! Sah-woon.
Seventeen-year-old Maggie has had a rough year, to say the least. Her mom deserted them, her brother is struggling in NY, and their dad is pretty much a zombie, making their father-daughter relationship non-existent. Her boyfriend Chad dumped her for his football career, and her grades have taken a major hit. When cute, funny Kyle asks her out for the umpteenth time, she finally says “yes.” She may not be interested in Kyle romantically, but she doesn’t want to sit home alone on their graduation night, and she could use a friend. On the way to Kyle’s house, Maggie sees an oh-so-cute boy about to cross the street. Correction. What she actually sees is the oh-so-cute boy about to step into oncoming traffic! With quick reflexes and strength she didn’t know she possessed, she pulls Caleb out of harm’s way, never suspecting that both of their lives are about to be changed forever. Caleb just happens to be Kyle’s visiting cousin, and their family? Well, they are much more than the average family. They are part of a supernatural group of humans called Aces. When Caleb and Maggie touch, they get a jolt of energy followed by some incredible visions, and Maggie is thrown into a world she never knew existed. Caleb imprinted on Maggie. She is what they call his Significant. She is his soul mate, and he is hers.
Sigh. Not only are they perfect for each other, but they literally feel each other’s heart beats. They need one another’s touch to survive.
This book is guaranteed to get your swoon-inator humming and your toes curling towards the heavens. Caleb is just...well... beautiful. Inside and out. He is exactly what Maggie needed, and vice versa.
But it’s not all fun and romance, because there’s another group of Aces who are none-too-happy about Caleb and Maggie's imprint or what it means for their clan.
I had been hearing a lot of buzz about Shelly Crane, and now I know exactly why. I can’t wait to read more from this incredibly talented author and more about Caleb and Maggie.
