Book Description

A story by NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling Author, Shelly Crane.

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?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"An addicting series!"
 - Abbi Glines, NYT Bestselling Author of Existence and Fallen Too Far
 
           
"Sweet love story that will make you sigh..."
- Nicole Williams, NYT Bestselling Author of Crash and Eternal Eden
 
           
"It's the kind of love that we begin dreaming about as little girls and never stop enjoying long after we've found our own knight in shining armor."
- M. Leighton, NYT Bestselling Author of Madly and Down To You
 
 
"Caleb is the sweet, sexy, smart guy every girl dreams about--me included!"
- Nichole Chase, NYT Bestselling Author of Suddenly Royal

From the Author

    Caleb came closer to me, releasing my hand and framing my face with his, and I felt a flood of calm and warmth.
   "Breathe, Maggie." I hadn't realized I was holding my breath. I took a deep breath and felt the air rush in and out frantically as I blinked. My head cleared a little. He smiled.  "Everything's going to be OK. All right? Just don't be upset. You don't have to be scared."
    "What are you doing?" Kyle asked and pushed Caleb's hands away. The second he did that, I felt cold, oddly desperate, and heard myself gasp. "Dude. Not cool. Look, I understand that she saved you and you feel- whatever- but I told you about this girl. You can't just-"
    "She's the one, Kyle," Caleb interrupted, never taking his eyes from mine. It felt like an eternity had passed since he'd first taken my hand and I was still tingling in my veins from whatever had taken place. "It's her."

4.0 out of 5 stars The plot is great, the editing was bad August 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok, I liked the book... The plot was great and it keeps your interest the whole way through. My problem was the editing; I have never (NEVER) read a book with so many mistakes in it. There were missing words, extra words, misspelled words, misused words, missing punctuation marks and extra ones all the way through this story. There were sentences that had more than one error in it and sentences that repeated the same thing over, just using different words. And yes, maybe I expect too much. There will probably be mistakes in my review that people will be sure to point out; but this book holds the record in my history of reading (and I read A LOT) for mistakes. Otherwise, except for grammatical errors... Very Good book and I had to keep reading it to find out the ending. And hopefully, there will be a sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute YA - Needs a proofreader August 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author obviously has talent for storytelling. This is a well done YA book, except for one factor.....it needs a proofreader! This is the perfect example of why spell-check is not completely reliable! I felt like Inigo Montoya, "I do not think it means what you think it means..."

If I hadn't read it on my kindle, I would have put red marks all over it. It was a shame, because the actual plot and talent for dialogue is very nice. Good read, bad editor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! July 9, 2011
By Jax
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't believe this story only has one review. Significance has romance, adventure, funny dialougue, an amazing supportive family, and some magical powers that come along when you find your one true love (your significant). This book really amazed me. I was not expecting much because it was only a dollar, but I enjoyed every minute of reading this story. You think that once a conflict is resolved everything will finally get better, but the fun part is when it just gets worse. Five stars to Shelly Crane. I can't wait for the next book!

Really, read this book. If you need a good YA book that has the right amount of teen romance this is the book for you. Even after a week of reading it, I still get a smile on my face just by thinking about how Caleb and Maggy meet. BUY THE BOOK!

1.0 out of 5 stars How did this get so many great reviews? April 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll cut to the chase: I really liked the first few chapters and then it went downhill fast from there.

The first chapters brought me in because the protagonist was relatable and I felt bad for her situation. After our heroine meets her "Soul Mate," I was somewhat intrigued...and then the rest of the book happens.

It's a complete mess. Grammar aside (it's a forgivable offense for me since I care more about the story), the plot just becomes increasingly dull as our Significant couple is relegated to pretty much this dialogue for the rest of the novel: "I love you" and "No! I love you more!"

There's no real drama, per se, that makes this book interesting. The couple never have a real falling out (besides deciding who loves each other more), and there's not that much that stands in their way. Sure, there's a bad guy in there and a couple of jealous guys, but each character never pose any real harm to the protagonist or to the couple.

Yikes, and don't get me started on this whole "Ace" business. Based on this first book of the series, I still have no feel of what the "Aces" are and what their purpose is.

Overall, I'm usually very forgiving and as long as the story entertains me I'd give at least two stars. However, this book was painfully boring with all the non-stop lovey-dovey talk. Definitely not interested in reading the next installment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly written and syrupy sweet... December 22, 2011
By firefly
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the most overly gooey book I have ever read. It was a more than little boring reading about the two main characters gush at each other and talk about "taking it slowly". I was about to yak through the whole book.

Also, grammar errors, stupid plot threads, misspelled words, and plain old negligent writing abounds.

I am not at all interested in the second or third installments.

I feel bad for writing this, but people need to know that this book has no plot!! The characters don't DO anything - I was a third of the way through the book, bored out of my brain, and Maggie is still being insipid and 'cute'... gag. Every man and his dog feels the need to tell her she's cute and sweet and innocent which is great but why on earth couldn't she have some character? Nothing happens. She meets the guy, they go on dates, they look at the stars, some guy is mean to her (oh noes! someone who doesn't think she's cute!) and then you realise you've got half the book to go and you're not really sure if there's going to be a punchline to this whole mess or if the author is just going to keep throwing words at the page until she meets her quota.

So disgusted that someone thought they could charge money for this... and pissed that people gave it good reviews which are totally misleading! Grrrr...

Ok, so I rarely write reviews. And I never thought I'd write anything but positive reviews...

However, I wasted my good time trying to get to into this story and all the other ratings/reviews betrayed me.

I can almost always trust the reviews on Amazon, but not in this case.

I can overlook editing errors all day long, and I can ignore aspects of a story that are not my style - but ONLY TO A POINT!!

I have read the Twilight series, and I dealt with all the lengthy, sappy, adoration between the characters, but this takes that style of writing to a new point of annoyance. I could literally flip through pages and pages of "does he understand my love, maybe he won't like me, I am not worthy of his love, etc"...and not miss any storyline changes. The characters' emotional inner dialogue would literally go on for pages. It was constant emotional blah blah blah.. it was ridiculous! And, it wasn't in just one or two areas in the book, it happened over and over throughout the book.

My reason for writing this rant is that I love this type of fantasy, supernatural romance... I even like the romance stuff. The reviews made me think I'd love this book. However, when all you do is talk about the trist between the three guys that are ga-ga for the girl and how this guy waited too long, and that guy is just a friend, and is this third guy right for me?... I mean come on.. add some real action more than twice through the whole book, and give us more about their powers and how it feels to be supernatural, and just make the plot and action 1/10 of the rest of the dribble and I would have read it.

If Saturday Night Live wrote a joke book, about the mushy adoration and emotional roller-coasters that happen in Twilight, they would have wrote this book.
