Significance by Shelly Crane

This book is one of the very first e-books I downloaded months and months ago.  It was so well written and the story was so lovely that it has stuck with me through hundreds of books, literally.  It is a beautiful love story that revolves around two young people.
The blurb:

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?
My Thoughts:

I simply adore Maggie.   She is just so SWEET!  She has been dealt a pretty bad hand over the past twelve months and, due to that, she hasn’t set any expectations for herself past high school.  We meet her on the day she graduates high school.  Her father has been emotionally absent for the past year and her adopted brother, Bish (mmmm, BISH!), has a job he doesn’t even enjoy in another state.
Then there is Caleb.  If I was a 17 or 18 year old girl, I would LOVE to meet a Caleb.  He is self-assured, loving, loyal, and pretty dang sexy!  His father is the head of their Clan and Caleb has inherited innate leadership capabilities.

Caleb and Maggie meet quite unexpectedly the night of her high school graduation.   Needless to say, their connection, or Imprinting, leaves them both stunned and, instantly bonded to one another.  Maggie is thrown into a world she never knew existed.  She discovers she has abilities and powers she never could have imagined.  She is welcomed into Caleb’s large and boisterous family, which is vastly different than her own.  Through the changes she goes through, Caleb is always there with her.
There is a good bit of action in this book as well.  Maggie discovers she must rely on her new abilities as well as some good old common sense and luck to come out victorious against the ones who seek to harm her and her new family.

As previously stated, this is the first book in the Significance Series.  There are two additional books (Accordance and Defiance) that continue to follow Caleb and Maggie as well as their friends and families.  I cannot recommend these books enough!

The fourth book, Independence, is going to be released in December 2012.  That gives you PLENTY of time to read these books if you haven’t yet!  You’ll love ‘em!
