(Review from the author)

I am soooo excited about this book! The things I have planned for this series are making me anxious. *insert girly giggle* The first book was all about Caleb and Maggie's relationship and coming into their love and book two will not be lacking in that but, it will also be about Maggie coming into her own as an Ace. She is more important that anyone ever imagined and the people they meet, the situations they get into, the decisions that are forced on them and the people who betray them will, hopefully, blow your mind and make you hopping mad and utterly soaked in sweetness at the same time.
I will tell you that if you are anxious to see if the imprints are coming back....definately stay tuned :)
Thank you readers for all the comments and reviews and posts for Significance. The response was overwhelming and I sincerely hope you enjoy the next installment of the series.

Best Wishes and Happy Endings,
Shelly Crane

Quotes Shelly Liked

Shelly Crane
“You know any single girls in their twenties that would go for Bish?" I asked Caleb.
"Sure, I know plenty. But would Bish go for it? He doesn’t seem to
be attracted to anything that walks, talks, eats or breathes except my sister.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“The day Caleb touched my hand and I saw all those things, I was excited. Yes, a little freaked but excited more. I felt like...everything I ever needed was right there. I still feel like that. It's not something you can just turn off and I wouldn't want to. I want him more than I need him.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Beck, we gotta go.”
“Ok.” She made smooch lips to the mirror and then smiled at me. “It's shameful to look this fabulous isn't it?” she said, making me laugh.
“Absolutely, just shameful.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“I am so in love with you,” I told him.
He smiled graciously and pressed his nose and cheek to mine with a hand on my jaw.
“I'm so in love with you.”
“I know,” I said happily and smiled through the rain on my cheeks.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Everything we'll accomplish, we'll do it together or not at all.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“I want him more than I need him.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“He pulled my face up with his hand cupping my cheek and kissed me on my trembling mouth. He smoothed his hands down my arms, my back, my hair, my cheek, soothing me.

“There’s a picture of you two in the dictionary under ‘get a room’,” Kyle said from behind me.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Caleb,” I called and looked at him. “I need you.” He looked surprised as he came forward. “What do you need?” “You.” “Does this require a human sacrifice?” he said joking. “No,” I laughed and heard Jen laugh too. “You remember I told you how I needed you at my side? I do, always. I can’t do any of this without you. Your touch is the trigger.” “It is?” he said in surprise. “You are just as important as I am. In the vision, I saw that you and I will be the key, not just me. Everything we’ll accomplish, we’ll do it together or not at all.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“It's not just jealousy because the Jacobson's are imprinting. There's a prophecy."
"A prophecy," I scoffed. "What is this, Harry Potter?”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“So what was your favourite song?"
"Um...the one about the sun sizzling into the ocean." He laughed hard. "What?"
"Zeke wrote that song about his cat."
"His cat," I repeated blandly.
"Yep, Peaches, she ran away."
"I'd run away too," I muttered under my breath, making him laugh harder.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“He looked like he always did. Jeans and a black Foo Fighters t-shirt, his hair lay over his forehead and around his ears. I pushed my hand through it.
"It's perfect. It's you."
He grinned, shaking his head.
"Zeke told me to wear leather, lots of it."
"And you're rebelling?" I said through a laugh.
"I'm telling him to subtly screw himself.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Maggie." He chuckled. "I can't really be mad at you in case you haven't noticed."
"I know, I know. The imprint," I said begrudgingly.
"No, not the imprint. It's you. You're so sweet and you care about everybody. You hate when people are upset with you. You love cream soda. It's kind of hard to be mad at someone who's like that.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“You proposed over a plate of burned bacon?”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Alright, well, we're going to go tell Maggie's father." Kyle came forward to inspect Caleb's face closely. "Dude, what are you doing?"
"Just memorising your pretty face before it gets all mangled."
Caleb laughed and shoved Kyle who laughed too. "Shut up, man.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“What makes you think he won't freak? He is my father and I'm his only little girl."
"Betcha five bucks."
"Deal," I said with a laugh. "He is gonna freak and I'll take your money and buy a honey bun with a diet cream soda and I won't share with you," I sang.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“The women are okay with the husband's picking out a house for them, without them even seeing it?" Dad said with a questioningly raised eyebrow.
"Yes, sir, it's like an engagement ring. The woman doesn't pick that out either," Caleb countered.
"True...but she's not going to live in her engagement ring.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Caleb and Kyle couldn’t keep their eyes off me, like I was the queen of frigging England sitting at their table or something.”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Shelly Crane
“Far away, I feel your beating heart. All alone, beneath the crystal stars. Staring into space, what a lonely face. I’ll try to find my place with you What a beautiful smile Can you stay for a while? On this beautiful night We’ll make everything right My beautiful love, my beautiful love.”   - The Afters”
Shelly Crane, Accordance

Kyrsten I have every intention of writing a review for this as soon as I find the time. I'm having my second daughter in the next two weeks, so I'm not sure I will get around to it soon... but I will eventually! I will say in short - I love this series, and these characters, and feel lucky to get to read such a wonderful piece of art! I can't wait for the third book, and I will definitely be picking up Catalyst and your new series as soon as I can on my Kindle. Keep up the wonderful work!

Bree Brown I just started Accordance today and am a little over a quarter through it. I really hope big things happen with Bish (I am sure you know what I mean) and also, how do I pronounce his name?


message 15: by Shelly (new) - added it

Shelly Crane Thank you Caroline and Bree. I have no plans to stop writing, I assure you ;) And Bree, its pronounced just like it looks. No tricks :) Thank you!!


Diana Ohmigod! when will the next book be publish? I'm really going nuts here. It's 3 in the morning here in the Philippines and I can't sleep, the ending, more like a cliffhanger, keeps playing on my mind. You're really something Shelly, I hope you knew that. Kudos! 5/5

message 26: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim Smiley I just finished book one and I immediately picked up and started reading book 2 and I love it! it's been a while since I've read a book I couldn't put down and this series has me reading more than anything else right now. I even woke up at 3am lastnight and thought about getting up and picking up Significance so I could finish it. When I decided to stay in bed and try to sleep, all I could think about was what was going to happen, as I was almost at the end. Love these books and I'm so glad I have them all here so I can read them all one after the other. I just don't know what I'm going to do when there are no more to read!!


Olusola Please how do I get to read this book on goodread
