Review: Significance by Shelly Crane

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 saves the life of Caleb and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing. 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?

Mrs. Crane gave you a lot in this book. Romance, action, family, little bit of fighting over the girl and even a little family rivalry.... The way the family works together, the morals they carry and the love that they show is refreshing. The idea of the clan rivalry was cool and interesting to see how each family clan is so different from each other. I think this book had a lot of possible potential.
I wanted to love this book, I really did. However, the whole having to be with each other non-stop or you suffer really got to me. That and having to release each other in order to walk away. Even though it works both ways it just made me feel like smoothering. There's no real dependency in them. I know, I know... It makes part of the story what it is and I respect that. Bravo to the author for trying to add a twist to the whole soul mate idea. It just didn't work for ME. I'm not saying it's not worth reading because honestly, if the above that I mentioned doesn't bother you, then you might just love it. I'll probably read book two in order to see how things work out and maybe, just maybe it will help me understand the way the author potrays these characters. I hope to be back again in book two with a better review for you!
