Let's Talk: Undeniably Chosen by Shelly Crane

Undeniable Chosen (Significance #5) by Shelly Crane
Let's Talk contains spoilers

2.5 stars

Synopsis (Goodreads):
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 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.


Okay, so Seth is a fireman.
Yes, ladies. A fireman.

Was he this kind:

No. But every time it said he was a firefighter, it ran through my head.

In this book, we see Caleb and Maggie's daughter navigate her life trying to find her significant. When this book started, I really liked it. I really enjoyed it and it seemed to be more mature than the previous books in the series (not in a sexual way, just in general). But the book lost me when Seth and Ava stopped arguing and started actually getting to know one another. Then my interest in Seth vanished.
And some of the lines were so cheesy.
I mean, come on. It's the 21st Century. Ava said: "Let's watch Dodgeball."
Seth said: "No way. You're a girl, you're not supposed to like guy movies."
Ava: "Maybe later we'll watch Anchorman."
Seth: "You're amazing."


Spoilers below

The part when Ava saved Seth from the fire was cool, but then the other fireman stopped caring about how she knew to come. I mean, sure they would stop caring in a perfect world, but let's get real. They would be looking into that.

And when they had the huge house party and everyone came and they let Seth win at horseshoes.
Ava: "OMG, my family never let's anyone win horseshoe against them! They are really trying!"

And then in the end when Ava kept almost dying when Seth wouldn't look at her and he had to explain himself to the entire family. When they revealed what happened in the Watson family. Then when they got married and they moved into the house and how Caleb thinks they should change everything that the Significants have been doing for years because his daughter's significant can't afford a house. Even when all of this was revealed, I just kind of did this:

Now to wait for the next book to be about another couple. It is so convenient that the couples never find their significants in the duration of someone else's book.

Rating: 5/10
Parental Rating: 14+
