Accordance by Shelly Crane

Synopsis (goodreads.com):
In the sequel, Maggie learns much more about all the strange things that happened to her, and has to face new ones. She rebels against it, but ultimately, must face it for her new families sake and maybe even her life. Bish went from being her biggest supporter to her biggest pain in the butt and Kyle's intentions to attract her interest may not be so innocent. Caleb and Maggie face many new obstacles together and fight to work through them but will one that should be a good thing be too much for Maggie to handle?

Jillian’s Review:

I'm so done with how perfect and unrealistic Caleb is and how everything comes too easily for Maggie. And can she please stop giggling and crying and needing to lean on her guy every five minutes?

This felt like a filler novel where nothing really important happens. One event does take place, but it could have easily been put in the third novel and the rest of this book could have been deleted all together.

At first I loved all the kissing and cuddling and romance that I crave in a novel, but after book one, Significance, I was ready for some more meat to the story and just didn't get it here. Not to mention that every time they touch it's described nearly the same way.

I thought the first book could have used an editor but, holy cow, this one needed at least three! Crane jumps from past to present tense several times, uses incorrect words, and messes up details that were in the first book. It really distracted from the story, had there actually been one.

The cover's nice though. :)

I found another book on Amazon's Kindle list with the same cover minus the photoshoped blurry swirl thing. I think it must have just been one of those generic ones.
