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?
Despite the story revolving around the idea of insta-love – I have to say that I enjoyed the book.
Caleb and Maggie were really well written and thought out as characters. Caleb was a huge heartthrob, from his looks down to his charming personality – he was a really good match for the heroine who handled the imprint situation very well for a human who was initially unaware of any form of ‘supernatural’ activity around her – he gave her the time she needed to process the overwhelming feelings they were both experiencing and truly loved her all the while. I also really liked how welcoming and loving the Jacobson family was on meeting her as I expected a lot more of
But really, most of the reactions pretty much looked something along these lines :
The Jacobson clan was nothing but welcoming and protective in regards to Maggie which I found particularly useful nearing the end of the book, but the details of that whole fiasco I will leave out as it is a rather large spoiler.
However, this book wasn’t perfect. There were frequent spelling and grammar errors which could really distract from the story at points, but the plot itself made up for that two, if not threefold.
All things considered, I really enjoyed this book and will definitely look into reading its sequels in the future and would recommend it to any fans of romance and fantasy books.
My rating: 3.5/5 stars
