~ Synopsis ~

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; her significant.

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 interests at heart, but he 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 judgement 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 int he dark when everyone else is blind to show them the way. And more than anything…. they’ll fight like hell to keep each other.


***WARNING – SPOILERS AHEAD – If you haven’t read any of Shelly Crane’s Significance Series, there may be spoilers below – READ WITH CAUTION***


When Shelly Crane announced she’d be continuing the Significance Series I was ELATED! Caleb & Maggie were one of my absolute favorite book couples. Even though I’m typically not a fan of YA Paranormal Romances, I tried out Significance and devoured the next three books in anticipation for the fourth and final installment. When it ended? I was at a loss – even though it was perfection I REALLY wanted more.

Now, with Undeniably Chosen we’re once again thrust into the Jacobson Clan, Maggie now their Visionary and Caleb the head of the clan but it’s not either of them that takes center stage in this story – we now get to hear the story through their teenage daughter Ava. Ava is in college, working with her father’s company and desperately trying NOT to concentrate on the fact that she still hasn’t found her significant. Even though the significant are coming back slowly, but surely – she’s still frustrated knowing out there somewhere is her soulmate and hoping they find one another soon. But….. be careful what you wish for.

As Ava is walking out of a coffee shop she notices a tall, dark handsome boy – but she shrugs it off knowing full well it’s a waste of time to dwell on thoughts of someone she can never have. But …. when they touch briefly ….. the moment she’s been waiting for all her life happens. Your life can change in the matter of seconds, when you least expect it. To her surprise the boy she thought was so handsome turns out to be not only her significant….. but also, a Watson, the arch nemesis clan of the Jacobsons. Ava has grown up hearing unspeakable stories of the horrors her parents endured at the hands of the Watson’s. Now in what should be the happiest moment of her life she’s faced with the idea that she and Seth will never be together – how can they? How would their families ever allow it to happen?

This throws us into non-stop action as the Watson’s reemerge to wreak havoc up the Jacobson’s – hoping that Seth can gain them access to the Jacobson’s – not only destroying his significant, but also her entire family’s clan. The flash backs in story of what Maggie and Caleb had to endure reminds me exactly why I fell in love with this series – and Undeniably Chosen was no different. Ava & Seth’s story is both magical, suspenseful and you will read as fast as you can to find out what will happen next. The Virtuoso is on the verge of war – and Maggie as their visionary knows that the Watson’s may be the least of their worries.

Even though Seth & Eva are off to a rough start their bond is strong – just like Caleb & Maggie, Ava & Seth will have to face more obstacles than anyone their age should have to face just to be with the one they were destined to find.

Anyone who is a fan of the Significance Series will love the generational continuation of this story, and by the sounds of it …… this is only the beginning.
