Defiance - Shelly Crane - Significance Series

Defiance (Significance, #3)Defiance by Shelly Crane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maggie broke out of her shell and Caleb...*sigh*

So this book was another fantastic addition!  Loved Maggie & Caleb, and the whole Jacobsen clan!  The characters develop more with each book.  We meet new characters, get new villains, and the plot thickens!

The entire book takes place at the big reunification ceremony!  Maggie is excited and soon finds out this isn't the party she's been hearing about.  Her powers grow and so does her amazing personality and sense of self.  Caleb is swoon-worthy as always and they face a lot of problems in this one.  More than usual.

There are so many bad guys and good guys and revelations.  The imprints start coming back.  Maggie gets to see who the past visionary was and Gran is her feisty self as always.

I wish I could have a family as well thought out and in love as the Jacobsens.  Amazing job Shelly Crane, I can't wait to read the final installment!

Accordance - Shelly Crane - Significance Series

Accordance (Significance, #2)Accordance by Shelly Crane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars... Super awesome sequel!!!

I loved this sequel!!!  Maggie is such an awesome heroine and getting to know her more and her quirky family more was really fun.  There were so many twists and turns in this book and I will say this... a shocking surprise ending!!!

Caleb and Maggie are adorable in this series!  Maggie finds out how incredible her ability is and so does Caleb.  The imprints are starting to return.  There's a lot going on in this book and I love love love how the author puts an amazing amount of romance in along with the action!  It makes it that much more fun for us women to read!

I'm really excited to see what happens next with Lynne, Bish, Kyle, Jen, Caleb, Marla, Marcus, and of course Maggie!!!  I can't wait to find out what's going on with this unlikely bunch!

The character depth is amazing and they all really grow on you.  The books are super sappy but full of intense action.  There's just nothing negative to say about the series so far!

Significance - Shelly Crane

Significance (Significance, #1)Significance by Shelly Crane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great new twist to the paranormal genre, so far so good, I'd give it 4.5 stars!!!  Definitely off to an awesome start!!!

So, first off, if you are in the mood for a romance of the paranormal sorts this is for you!  Second when I heard "imprint" I obviously thought of werewolves and am happy to report there are none in this novel.

I read quite a variety of books and this one has been showing up on my amazon account for a long time saying I would enjoy it but for some reason I just always skimmed past it until I read about it in the Jingle All the YA book and knew instantly I wanted to read this...

Maggie is your main character, she has a mother who abandoned her and a father who is like a zombie since her mother left.  She has an adopted older brother who lives in New York.  She got dumped by her boyfriend senior year and the story starts off at her senior graduation!  A boy who has asked her out numerous times asks her yet again and she decides, why not???  So she makes plans with Kyle...

On her way to meet up with Kyle she sees a very good looking guy and saves his life.  This is Caleb... he's our hero.  They imprint on each other (no werewolves) and it means they are each other's "significant other" and she meets his quirky and fun family!  I loved Caleb's family!!!  I thought Kyle seemed a tad creepy... 

There's action and drama but this is a book you read when you want also some mushy romance!  It's cute, not sexual or r rated, perfect for a teen or me *way past my teen years*....  I thought their chemistry was really great and I am definitely a fan can't wait to read book two!!!!
