Undeniably Chosen by Shelly Crane
Ava has watched her parents, Caleb and Maggie, live the perfect fairy tale, the perfect love story, played out in front of her eyes her entire life. Her family is love, life, and happiness. The Jacobsons are everything a family should be and Ava is loved and well taken care of. But the one thing that’s missing from her life is the one thing she’s waited for every day, the one thing her kind knows will make them complete, the one thing they thought was gone and lost forever.
Seth has lived with the Watsons his entire life. They’re the only family he knows, but he knows that there are things they keep from him. He knows that they lie and they do unspeakable evil, things from when he was a child that he can barely remember that cling to the edges of his memory. He barely remembers his real mother and all he knows is what he’s told. He doesn’t know what to trust. He wants to believe that the Watsons love and care for him, have his best interest at heart, but isn’t so sure of that anymore when he finally—after a lifetime of waiting for her—meets his soulmate, and the Watson’s first act is to try to take her away from him.
The Virtuoso worlds collide, hearts are exposed, humans are endangered, and the lives of Seth and Ava are changed forever. They’ll have to love without judgment or reservation, they’ll have to be wise and accepting beyond their years, they’ll have to forgive for things before they’ve even happened, they’ll have to trust without seeing, have faith without knowing, and they’ll have to light their own way in the dark when everyone else is blind to show them the way. And more than anything else…
they’ll fight like hell to keep each other.
My Review: 5+ Stars
*dreamy sigh* I LOVED it just as much the 2nd time around! I cannot WAIT for the next book to be released! Eeeeeeek!
Holy macaroni grill Batman!! I absolutely LOVED Undeniably Chosen!! I seriously could NOT put it down!! I got so mad that work and sleep got in the way of my precious Ava and Seth time!! I stayed up late and woke up early just to finish this AMAZING book!! I have loved the entire Significance series but I have to admit that this book is my absolute FAVORITE out of the whole series so far!! I have been DYING for this to come out and just KNEW that it would be well worth the wait and I was NOT wrong!!
Ava has been waiting her whole life to find her significant. She has dreamed about how it would it be... how she would feel... how happy she would be... and then she imprinted with a Watson. Her first response?! Run... and run she did! Life as she knew it was over... or so she thought... ;)
Seth hasn't had the best life. Even though he has been put through the ringer more times then I could count, he still wanted to see the best in everyone. He was constantly being accused of various things and doubted and just wronged... but that man... he is a SAINT!! He still pushed forward and even defended the Jacobsons who kept accusing him of doing things he did not do! He would always tell Ava... it's okay... they're your family... they're just trying to protect you... I would do the same thing... I understand. Saint I tell ya! He never ONCE gave up!
I loved watching Seth do everything he could to get to know Ava and make her happy. He wanted to show her how much he loved her and how special she was to him. And I loved watching Ava realize that Watson or not Seth is her significant and she would do everything she could to get to know him and make him happy... make him feel loved for the first time in his life!
The first little while after you find your significant is supposed to be special... you're supposed to be happy and enjoy getting to know each other. But in true Shelly style... that just did not happen for Seth and Ava. Once the Jacobsons were finally on board with all things Seth they had to deal with the Watsons. Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire Batman! Evil... plain and simple... they are evil!! And they have someone in their pocket helping them to try and destroy the Jacobsons. *sigh* Can't these poor Jacobsons get a break?!
There were lots of twists and turns that I did not see coming!! And I loved every minute of it!! This was definitely a book worth losing sleep over!! I cannot WAIT to see where Shelly takes us next!! I am totally looking forward to Undeniably Fated!! It's going to be AMAZING!! :)
And are you guys ready for my casting?! Oh my heck!! I just LOVE it!! Aren't they just gorgeous?!?! ;)
