Guest review by Anne:
Maggie Masters is a lost soul who recently just graduated from high school, a teenager with a non-existent family life and no clear direction for her future. This time in her life should be about starting in a new direction, little did she know what the universe had in store. Caleb is a man who will follow the rules of his family, no matter how differently he would like to live his own life. He is a strong male lead and a wonderful character with high morals and maturity. He is raised in a world of magical abilities, strong family bonds, and where love chooses you. The character of Caleb is one of my most favorite male leads; he is strong, stands by what is right, and protects his girl – all men should be taking notes! These two main characters are a wonderful start to this series and the chemistry between them will make you smile.
Their relationship starts off with a bang in the beginning of the book. This is one of my favorite characteristics of this book, from the beginning you are wrapped up into the story tightly. As the reader, you are pulled with Maggie’s emotions as to the uncertainty of things becoming so serious so quickly. Caleb has unbelievable patience and takes every situation as slow as physically possible to allow his new significant time to understand the world that she has now entered. The reader soon has trust and confidence in Caleb, which is a fantastic feeling to have for a character. Once the two are inseparable the action packed plot begins to really pick up speed.
Maggie and Caleb’s relationship attracts a lot of attention, not all good. The jealousy and envy of Caleb’s family rivals begins to mount and leads to attempts to separate the two lovers. The author does a spectacular job of keeping you glued to the book as she expertly builds the plot and takes your emotions for the ride. The events of the book build steadily and knit together so incredibly well that there is not one chapter of this book that disappoints. The love between Maggie and Caleb is tested, their ability to survive without each other’s healing touch is challenged and their relationship is put to the ultimate test.
As the first book in her Significance Series, Shelly Crane leaves you wanting more and more time with Maggie and Caleb. The chemistry between the main characters, the family drama, and magical enemies create the perfect building blocks for the series. I am very much looking forward to Accordance (Significance #2).
