Significance by Shelly Crane {review}


I haven't posted a review lately of a book I just read because...so now I am. Because I am freakin' BLOWN AWAY. This book was totally awesome! I mean leave me wanting more, lose sleep until every book in the series is read awesome. AMAZING!

I am in love. With Caleb and with this book. I grabbed it because it was free and I had read a Shelly Crane book before and knew she was amazing. But this seriously ... just WOW. I found myself grinning like an idiot and feeling really giddy. From the first paragraph I was drawn into this world where anything could be possible. I loved the characters and the story line and I WILL be reading the rest in this series. I saw they are going to make this into a movie and I can't wait.  Amazing. Get it! It's FREE on Amazon right now.



{about the book}
Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track, but her mom left, her dad is depressed, she's graduating, barely, and her boyfriend of almost three years dumped her for a college football scholarship. Lately she thinks life is all about hanging on by a thread and is gripping tight with everything she has. 

Then she meets Caleb.

She saves his life and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing, but she's supposed to be on her way to a date with his cousin. Things change when they touch, sparks ignite. Literally.

They imprint with each other and she sees their future life together flash before her eyes. She learns that not only is she his soul mate, and can feel his heartbeat in her chest, but there is a whole other world of people with gifts and abilities that she never knew existed. She herself is experiencing supernatural changes unlike anything she's ever felt before and she needs the touch of his skin to survive. Now, not only has her dad come out of his depression to be a father again, and a pain as well, but Caleb's enemies know he's imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities and take her from him.

Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?
