Publisher's Summary

Maggie is a 17-year-old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track, but 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's supposed to be on her way to a date with his cousin. 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, but Caleb's enemies know that Caleb is imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities.

Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?

    "One of my favorites!"

    I have read/listened to this book so many times I've lost track! Yes, it is super sweetly romantic with a side of some supernatural and action, but that's the part that I love. The narrator does a really good job distinguishing the characters, even though they're not what I heard in my head I like it well enough.

    "LOVED the book - Even better on Audio!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! Anyone who likes to listen to books at work - it's a very SFW read.


    What other book might you compare Significance to and why?

    It's a young adult supernatural romance without sparkly vampires or werewolves.


    Which character – as performed by Cris Dukehart – was your favorite?

    Absolutely Maggie - her voice was exactly what you'd expect from reading the book, soft, sweet...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Maggie is kidnapped and all the Ace's are searching for her - you really get the emotions when Caleb finally gets to her.


    Any additional comments?

    Grab this up! It's a great book and the audiobook is fantastic!

    "YA loveliness"

    I read this book years ago and it was a lovely refreshing listen. I enjoyed it just as much seconds time around. It is a great YA story with a twist of paranormal. The main couple are very likeable. I would recommend the whole series.

    "A Favorite to listen to over & over"

    I love this author and reader/performer. I listen while in the car & when I can't sleep. The reader isn't tramatic but inserts the perfect amount of emotion.

    "Worth reading"

    I have read the whole series about Maggie & Caleb at least 4x. It's that good. It's almost too sappy at times but really enchanting as well.

    "An EPIC TRUE LOVE STORY"
    If you could sum up Significance in three words, what would they be?

    SWEET, EPIC, ROMANCE


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Heroine and Hero made the story. I love that this is a true romance love story. It’s a very sweet read about two young lovers getting to know each other. There was so much that went on and I gobbled it up.


    Have you listened to any of Cris Dukehart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first Cris narration. I loved her voice. I found it very sweet, young and it matched the Heroine perfectly. I loved listening to her inner struggles. I felt her confusion, pain and love for the Hero. I found the transition to Caleb’s not my preference. I usually prefer the narrator to do a deeper voice, but Cris made it more younger, which I understood because Caleb is suppose to be young too, but it just didn’t really match up to what I was thinking in my head.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    An EPIC YOUNG LOVE STORY

    Full Review:

    6 Finding True Love Stars

    I read this book a few years ago and I never got around to writing a review. I thought the audio version would be a perfect re-read.

    As a romance reader, I am a SUCKER for the Can-not-live-with-out-each-other story line. You know, the one where it makes you ache, heart swoon and head sigh. Shelly Crane delivered on this one. It’s a TRUE Romance.

    Maggie is your typical ordinary teenager. Her boyfriend breaks up with her, her mom leaves her and her dad ignores her. Her life isn’t perfect. One day she meets Caleb. Well, she saves him from getting run over by a car. It’s a super meet-cute. When Caleb and Maggie meet, sparks fly and it’s like BAM insta-connection.

    Maggie is Caleb’s Significance.

    What does it all mean? It means, Maggie isn’t so ordinary anymore.

    I consider Significance a YA paranormal book and I love it. It reads super sweet and super innocent. The story is about two people learning about each other and forming an intense relationship.

    Caleb is different. His family eventually gets paired up with their significant. It’s not easy finding a significant, it hasn’t been happening lately and Caleb is the first to be paired up in a long time. Once two people are paired, eventually they will obtain powers. There’s a lot more that goes on, but that’s the shorten version.

    Another family, not part of Caleb’s is jealous of the new pairing and so there’s retaliation and beautiful drama. Maggie becomes thrown in the middle and Caleb is so sexy because he goes all protective-cave-man on her.

    I love reading Maggie’s thoughts. I loved going through what she went through. Everything is a big mystery and there’s so much to learn. I was just sucked into Caleb’s world and all the special things that went with it.

    I loved the rival clans and all the drama.

    Let’s just say, everything is intense!

    The one thing that I enjoyed most about this read is the love Caleb and Maggie have for each other. It’s so intense because of the pairing. I like that they are only meant for each other. I also like that they were almost strangers and within a few minutes they become paired. It was just like I said crazy intense.

    "Too sweet for me, it could have been good"

    I listened to about 60% and then couldnt stand the sticky sweet draw between maggie and caleb anymore. i could not finish the book

    There were good and inventive fantasy parts, but there was not enough background story of the aces. where came they from? what is their purpous etc
    and every 5 minutes the same repetetive love confessions between caleb and maggie, they had to actually talk about their love all the time, because one could not feel it, no chemistry at all

    some intentional similarities to twilight but not the magic of twilight
    i am disappointed, all these high ratings at amazon com, where come they from?

    Story
    "so surgery you will get cavities"
    Would you try another book from Shelly Crane and/or Cris Dukehart?

    Doubtful. I had to give up on this book almost ninety percent through it. I couldn't take the surgery sweetness any longer. This book is for 13 year old girls who want to believe that the perfect man exists. That a soul mate is out there that will perfectly match your soul. I do believe in soul mates having been married to one for 37 years but non of them are perfect and match you perfectly.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It is one and the same. The rival clan was willing to kidnap Maggie and in several cases take actions that would have or should have killed her and probably would have raped her and they are beat up a little and let go. It was ridiculous and unbelievable. The author would have lost me on this point if she hadn't already.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Cris Dukehart?

    Yes the narrator was very good. It is one reason I listened as long as I did.


    Did Significance inspire you to do anything?

    Stop reading similar books.


    Any additional comments?

    Young adult should not mean the story should have a total lack of realism. If Caleb was so tuned in and in love with Maggie he would not have acted as he did. No matter how tuned you are and in love having the person in your head all the time would be invasive. Everyone has thoughts that the other person should not and does not want to know. I can accept the significant premise but not the execution of it by the author.

    "Fantastic series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Significance to be better than the print version?

    Definitely better then the printed version, to be able to hear their story come alive audibly is an wondefull experience, not all audible books can pull it off but this is definitly one that can.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Significance?

    Most memorable moment has to be when they first touch and imprint, his reaction to finding his significant is, for me swoon worthy and makes your heartbeat faster,


    What does Cris Dukehart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The way Chris pulls you into the book as she reads makes you feel like you are there experiencing the story, she adds such depth and emotion to the book, that you would miss out on in just the printed version, she's definitely up there with Stephan Fry is with the harry potter books


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely and I did....twice :)


    Any additional comments?

    The overall story is amazing so glad I found this book, its a beautiful love story with twists and dangers but the characters relationship is solid.....they are soul mates able to get throuh anything if they face it together.....it was lovely not to have the whole 'love triangle' and other common relationship issues that can arise in some romance novals. The characters are fantastic and you really fall in love with them all.
