**Okay, I have just realized there was an issue with my upload and the first rounds of people everywhere (Amazon, iBookstore, Kobo, B&N) who bought Undeniably Chosen got the pre-order "placeholder" version, which was the first unedited draft!!! Ahhhh!!! I'm SO sorry that there was a mix-up. It takes a few days for it to update, and unfortunately, iBooks and Kobo can take up to 10 days. I will upload again everywhere to make sure every venue has the correct copy. I know there are some grammar Naz ...more

Thoughts Before Reading (12/9/13):
I'm so excited about this one!!! Caleb and Maggie's daughter... I didn't even know I wanted to read about her, but now I can't imagine it any other way. Plus we still get to see glimpses of Caleb and Maggie. Those teaser chapters Shelly Crane left at the end of Wide Spaces were perfect, and now I will be stalking her until this book is out. I must get my hands on it!!

Thoughts & Feels After Reading:
5+ STARS!!

“I don’t know if I can even sleep tonight,” I muttered and rubbed at my arms. They were restless. “I can already feel myself twitching.”
“Tomorrow…” Dad began, but stopped. He sighed forcefully and tightened his fists. “I’ll go find him and make him come here if he doesn’t come on his own.”
“Dad, you didn’t see him. He was…” I bit into my lip hard. Just talking about him was making me ache all over. I closed my eyes and tried to breathe.

Ok so I guess I'm gonna be that one person who didn't seem to enjoy this book as much.

Seth really needed to do a lot in my eyes to make me like him as a character and as a significant for Ava. In the end I did like him better, but he wasn't uh-mazing in my eyes. I mean it's hard to like him when you have fucking Caleb Jacobson to compare him to. Now he is swoon worthy.

I, personally, didn't feel the true love between Seth and Ava. Everything seemed very forced, which technically it is.

Where do I begin? Let me start off by saying, before I read Shelly's Significance series, I have never read a paranormal book in my life. After I read the first book, Significance, I then proceed to read the rest of the series in one weekend. One Weekend.... Mother's Day weekend!! I fell in love with this series from the start and I was shocked because I didn't think this was going to be the book for me. Now I am borderline obsessed with them as well as the author, Shelly Crane.

I received an ARC of Undeniably Chosen........
Three words......HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!! Seth is a fireman who can put out the flames at my house anytime!!!!!
This epic love of Eva and Seth kept me on the edge of my seat and turning those pages. I lost sleep and did not complain one little bit. I loved all the characters in this book. Some I have loved for a long time. Yes, Maggie and Caleb are in it too. Squee!!!! I could never get enough of those two. Seth may just be my new favorite book boy friend!!

I was waiting for years to read this book and Ι finally finished it. Now I have to wait more for the second book and it kills me.

I loved every single word, every phrase and all the characters, even the villains. Shelly Crane just knows how to make you feel that way.

Crane does it again! Every author tends to have a flavor we come back to, over and over, and Crane’s is the sweetness—the soul-wrenching love that drips with purity. Each word is rich in the essence of fate and soul mates coupled with the love of family-clans generations deep.

I fell in love with Seth at the first beat. A strong southern fireman—count me in! This boy’s soul is full of peace and balance. In the heat of every adversity Crane throws at the couple he never misses a step or looses hi

I am in super Duper crazy fan of Shelly Crane and I love her significant serious I was very excited about this book and I couldn't wait to read it.
I normally don't gripe about books that have typos or misspelled words or a word that doesn't read properly. I know that things happen in editing and sometimes things get messed up or missed but this one had so many that it really took away from the flow of the story.
My other problem was with repetition of the story. So

Okay, so Seth is a fireman.
Yes, ladies. A fireman.

Was he this kind:

No. But every time it said he was a firefighter, it ran through my head.

In this book, we see Caleb and Maggie's daughter navigate her life trying to find her significant. When this book started, I really liked it. I really enjoyed it and it seemed to be more mature than the previous books in the series (not in a sexual way, just in general). But the book lost me when Seth and Ava stopped arguing and started actually get

Wow! I missed this family so, so much! I love tender love that Shelly adds to each of her stories. I really enjoyed reading about the next generation of Virtuosos, but I think the most exciting thing for me is finding out that this isn't where their story ends...there's more to come!! Thank you for sharing this world with us, Shelly. You allow for beautiful dreams, tender tears, and hope that our boys can be as good as Seth and Caleb and our girls find a man that will love and protect her above ...more

It was more than just wanting to have somebody, it was like this thing in my body was pulled just a little too tight. Just enough to annoy and bother me, but not enough to be painful. My significant was the only one who could make me feel normal. I knew it.

From the very beginning I was sucked right back into this wonderful, beautiful world Shelly created a while back. It was fun coming back and visiting with those that have since grown up and started families of their own. Maggie and Caleb ar

It was so nice to be reacquainted with the Jacobson clan. I had missed them so much and I loved getting to know Ava and Seth. This book has all the things I love about Shelly's writing- the sweet romance, the family dynamics, and even the rivalry between the Jacobson and Watson clans. Those pesky Watsons just won't g

Another good read in this series, but I found it a bit hard to get into again.

I loved the Significance series in all its sweet (and slightly cheesy) paranormal romance glory - but by the time this book was released I think the phase had passed for me. This book follows the story of another Virtuoso couple: Ava, Caleb and Maggie Jacobson’s daughter, and Seth – a kidnapped human child that has been raised by the rival Watson clan. I liked both their characters and enjoyed watching them learn to lo

I loved the whole series and was anxiously waiting for Ava and Seth's story..and finally I've read it !
It was as usual a sweet story but it had its own nexus of 'Watson's-R-Us' drama. I loved it !
I liked the characters , especially Seth's whole firefighter-strong persona with the other more 'softer' side of his. Ava was a conflict for me to understand at the begining but it got better after that.
I still love Caleb and Maggie aka the champion and the visionary along with the whole Jacobson clan b

UPDATE: After finding out that there was a mistake with the release of this book, having a draft published instead of the final product, I waited for the updated version to be ready and I downloaded it and started it again.

I have upgraded the rating from a 2 to a 3 because it was still mediocre, at best. Ashlyn's story is still way too long and unnecessary, there are still inconsistencies and typos. Ava's still annoying, but I liked Seth more this time and found him swoon worthy.

Sigh.... I loved this book. I really did. But the book is in need of a serious edit. There are missing words and typos all over the place. I expected better from a best selling author. Simple errors like these are my BIGGEST pet peeve. So the rating took a big hit from that.

Seth is a pretty awesome character. He's funny and brave and incredibly selfless. And he holds it together pretty well considering that everything he ever knew was proved wrong.

Ava, on the other hand, isn't a very strong ch

Shelly Crane has a true gift and I realized that when I first fell in love with Maggie and Caleb in the first book of this series titled Significance. The same is true for Seth and Ava and I think even more so with them. The course of love is never smooth, just like life, it has it's bumps, bruises, conflicts, pain, joy, laughter and arguments. What Shelly gives you in this book is that desire that I believe ever girl wants from her significant someone who wants to share every part of who they a ...more

The next generation of the Significance series is finally here and I am so very excited! Not only for this book, but the looming awesome series that is about to unfold before us!

“To feel someone’s heartbeat inside my chest and know that it was reciprocated.”

First let’s get this out of the way. Significance is an awesome series. It’s four books and two novellas. Which if you’re just joining us, can be a little intimidating. But don’t let it be!

Shelly Crane never disappoints when it comes to love that you would fight for and true happiness. I loved, loved, loved Ava's story. That is one sexy fireman and very swoon worthy. Just when you think no guy could beat Caleb or Merrick, Seth comes running to put out the flames he caused. Eva and Seth definitely light their own way in the darkness and leave you breathless. I am beside myself with excitement for the TV series. Will they hurry up already?!!!!! I guess great things
