Description (From Goodreads)  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 meets Caleb. She saves his life and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing but she is supposed to be on her way to a date with his cousin. 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?

My Thoughts:

I really loved this book. I read an excerpt from the first chapter and took a look at the cover, and thought this is going to be good. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. I love romance, and boy did this book deliver in that department. It is also filled with action, adventure, and the supernatural, which make it all the more interesting.

Maggie meets Caleb after experiencing the worst year of her life. Her mother left her, her boyfriend dumped her, and her dad has been so depressed he has pretty much checked out of her life. She has just graduated from high school with no plans from the future. She finally agrees to a date with her long-time friend Kyle, and literally saves Caleb's life on her way there, and get this, Caleb is Kyle's cousin. Maggie and Caleb are immediately attracted to one another. They end up imprinting and Maggie's life takes a drastic turn. Not only has she found her soul-mate, she has become part of a supernatural world she never new existed, and falls in love with a guys she cannot live without, literally.

I really loved the romance and the love story between Maggie and Caleb. Caleb is truly swoon worthy. He loves her completely and unconditionally, and what girl wouldn't die for that. The books is also filled with action and mystery. Shelly incorporates the supernatural/paranormal aspect that makes it even more interesting, and she has a different take on that element, which I haven't seen before and really enjoyed. I couldn't put the book down wanting to see what happened next. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the sequel, Accordance, is already out and I bought that immediately. I can't wait until the third in the series, Defiance, comes out in the spring. I would definitely recommend this book. It is truly a good read.
