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.

Couldn't finish...just bad.

I could not finish this book. The narrator is annoying. The characters have no depth. They have no true character development. The love between Maggie and Caleb is so unbelievable and it irritates me. Her absolute belief of the whole imprinting without any doubt just irritated me. And not to mention the author continues tell us about what imprinting is for the majority of the book. I stopped reading after chapter 18. I felt I could use my time better.

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!

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?

WOW!

If you could sum up Significance in three words, what would they be?

Passion, Addictive, Lovely

What did you like best about this story?

The storyline was awesome! I couldn't get enough of it!

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

The narrator does bring out the dialogs, she was one of the best I heard yet!

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

The first time Caleb and Maggs touch!

Any additional comments?

This is the very first book of the series. I had it in audiobook and I was addicted at the first listening.
 
Maggie is a naive 17 years old. I wish it was easy to describe her, but she is a complex girl. Her mom left her and her dad months ago, her dad is just a shell (Bella from twilight kind of shell) until she meets Caleb. They imprint. Sounds familiar? Yeah, well it is far from being the same than twilight if you are like me and you thought of that! It is way more complex and comes with so much more positive!
 
That particular book set the pace and mood for the series. Shelly is an incredibly talented writer and she proves it in this installment. Are you emotional while reading? If so, you will jump of happiness, smile with love, get angry at Marcus and maybe even Kyle! That one can be a pain in the arse sometimes!  Everything is well described, even the pain is excruciating, but this is a very good book that will bring out your emotions, and your wish to get to live that true love! Everything kind of happen so fast, but in the same time it feels perfect.
 
Some of the events are just easy to see coming, and some are just surprising, but my only question about that book, is why Max didn't teach more self-defense to Maggie after the first kidnapping attempt? I still have no answer, but if I get one, I'll let you know!

Not overly exciting..

I like the idea of the story about people with powers and the imprinting and remaining in contact etc.. quite interesting.. But I find that there was too much love-making.. I don't mean sex.. there's no sex involved but the lovey-dovey stuff was quite draggy but still tolerable.. But what really put me off was the overuse of the word "sweetly".. initially, it was fine.. then it started appearing more and more until every time I hear it, I wanted to strangle myself or pull out my hair.. But I made myself listen through the book as like I said, I like the idea and the plot was interesting.. and the way the narrator pronounced "sweetly" made me even more annoyed.. The narrator's voice was nice and I'm sure she did a great job.. but cos she said "sweetly" like in a sickly sweet way.. I blame the author for that because, if the word hadn't been so overused, it would have sounded fine.. Ending of the book was weird to me as well.. it just ended like that.. No cliff hanger and not much of a conclusion.. I recommend this book for people who are crazy about romance novels and don't mind draggy love scenes.. but if u are like me(my mind glazed over almost every time during the love-making), then I don't recommend it..

An awesome audiobook

I had read this book previously but quite some time ago. I decided to listen to the audiobook when I first joined. This is the first one I ever listened to and this is the audiobook which spawned my love for audios

The narrator has a beautiful voice to listen too, she bought this wonderful book to life with her gorgeous clear voice full of expression and fluidity. The quality is crystal clear with no background noise

I highly recommend this audiobook

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.
