About the book:
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 schalorship. 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?
Significance is a powerful and mouth watering paranormal romance. From the start Crane gives a abrupt romance that will take readers a moment to grasp. The instantaneous love between Maggie and Caleb lacks the build up that captivates and mystifies readers. As the character come to terms with their uncontrollable heart stopping romance; so will the readers. To overcome this significant’s have a rare ability to read one another's minds; for readers this will allow us to see past the intensity of this romance to truly learn the character. This display of creativity shows talent, and the authors importance to detail and genuine emotion. I am enthralled with all of the characters of the story with each unique and lovable personality. As a hopeless romantic I loved the possessive and protective nature of Caleb and his family. This family offers her love, acceptance, and stability that helps her to transform from a young girl to a young woman by the end of the book. Not everyone is happy about the imprint, and Maggie soon finds herself in the middle of a feud. With anger that has been seething for years, she is the chip that could sway the scale and the enemy will stop at nothing to have her. By the end of the book I struggled to recall any of the difficulty that I experience at the beginning, but as a reviewer I felt obligated to acknowledge some structural struggles. By the end of the novel Shelly Crane has proven to not only be a talented writer, but a story teller. I can’t wait to see what happens in Accordance, especially now that we have overcome the difficulty of starting such a complex story. BOOKWHISPERER RECOMMENDED!!!
