Maggie is a seventeen-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?
I’m giving this 1.5 stars because while I sort of enjoyed this book, I also thought it wasn’t the best thing ever written. It definitely was lacking in many areas – particularly the characters – and if I had physically read this instead of listening to the audiobook, I think I would have probably hated it.
