Significance by: Shelly Crane

Synopsis: Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track but then 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?

Thoughts: Significance is a quick, exciting, and magical read. I read through this book so quickly because I was constantly turning the pages to find out what was in store for Caleb and Maggie next! It's unique, sexy, and thrilling all in one!


We start off with Maggie, who is graduating from High School... a year early. She was always so smart, so perfect, until her mother left and her dad became, to say the least, a zombie. Her grades dropped, she lost her boyfriend of three years, and now she doesn't really have parents to lean on either. That all changes when she saves Caleb's life on her way to meet her friend Kyle. And soon she finds out that not only are Caleb and Kyle cousins, but that Caleb is her soul mate. She is instantly thrown into a world of powers, love, and dangerous enemies. And they say pure happiness always comes with a price, right?


I truly enjoyed reading Significance. I absolutely adored the romance, the characters, and the story line. I honestly would love to be an Ace. To be able to fall so completely in love with someone and have wicked awesome powers to go along with it... some one come imprint on me ;)!

I found myself loving each of the characters for different reasons as well. Maggie is a strong protagonist, she's been through terrible situations and is thrown into a whole new world and still comes out on top. There is also Kyle. Kyle, who's been Maggie's best friend and has always loved her. I felt so bad for him through some parts and others I laughed at how his attitude could be. I really liked him and can't wait to see more of him. Next, I found myself loving all the adults as well. Some down to earth and all are protective... but that's what a family should be. And finally, Caleb. Caleb... you sexy boy you! I love his age, his look, his personality. I was rooting for him and Maggie the whole story and cannot wait to see where their romance goes!


If you enjoy quick and exciting reads with some thrills... this is the book for you! I always love when I can whip through a book so quick and be completely happy with the story I just read. And, Significance was one of those. I cannot wait to read the sequel!
