Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who’s had a bad year. 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 is supposed to be on her way to a date with his cousin. But 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?
A while ago (pre-blog), I read this amazing book called Significance by Shelly Crane, and recently I decided it was time for me to do a reread. I had forgotten how much I absolutely loved this book and decided to do a well overdue review!
As it says in the description, this book is about two people who literally run into each other and discover they are soul mates. Now, that automatically caught my attention (being the hopeless romantic I am), and the fact it was so different from any other paranormal romance books. For instance, I personally do not like love triangles, and in Significance, that is a non-issue when it comes to soul mates. Even without the drama involved in a love triangle, Shelly Crane still managed to have my full attention for all 450 pages.
Maggie, our protagonist, is a relatable 17-year-old who has been faced with hard, if not a bit exaggerated, circumstances. Despite the fact that she finds her mystical soul mate within the first three chapters of the book, Maggie never loses herself inside her love interest, Caleb. She never loses her individual identity which made me love her as a character even more.
I was never bored reading this book. All of the characters were very dynamic and none of the main
I finished the book so quickly because I honestly couldn’t put it down. I can honestly say it is one of my favorite books of all time. Therefore I would have to rate it:
Please go read this series if you get the chance and check out more of Shelly Crane’s books!
