Title: Dating Dilemma Series
Author: Chris Cannon
Genre: YA RomCom, Sweet Romance
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Blurb:
Nina Barnes thinks Valentine’s Day should be optional. That way single people like herwouldn’t be subjected to kissy Cupids all over the place. That is, until her mom moves them next door to the brooding hottie of Greenbrier High, West Smith. He’s funny, looks amazing in a black leather jacket, and he’s fluent in Harry Potter, but she’s not sure he’s boyfriend material.
West isn’t sure what to make of Nina. She’s cute and loves to read as much as he does, but she seems to need to debate everything and she has a pathological insistence on telling the truth. And West doesn’t exactly know how to handle that, since his entire life is a carefully constructed secret. Dating the girl next door could be a ton of fun, but only if Nina never finds out the truth about his home life. It’s one secret that could bring them together or rip them apart.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is not for anyone who has to get in the last word, but it is for all book nerds, especially those who live next door to so called unapproachable gorgeous guys. There’s no debating the chemistry.
Blurb:
Lisa is a card-carrying, book-loving Gryffindor. Solid. And that’s why everyone knows she’s awesome. Well, except for her crush, Matt. He only ever sees her as a friend. Plus, he’s got his eye on another girl. Oh well, plenty of fish and all that.
Good thing Lisa just read a book on the “wedding ring phenomenon”—you get more attention when you’re already taken. What if Lisa pretends to be Matt’s plus one? Maybe it’ll help Matt get his girl and Lisa can hook her own fish.
After the plan works, Matt suddenly claims he doesn’t like the view from the friend-zone and wants her instead… But she isn’t interested in being anyone’s second choice. If this guy wants to earn her attention, he’ll need more than some silly “phenomenon.”
He’ll need to go all out…

Told from Rhett’s point of you.
If Ava could see herself, the sight would have stopped her cold. Even Rhett was afraid. The hair on his arm rose. His goosebumps had goosebumps.
Ava had absorbed Mia’s energy. Blue light zapped and crackled not only through her, but around her like an electric storm. She became the lightning and wind, uplifting everything around her. The ground shook, walls trembled, and lightbulbs popped like gunshots. Centered in the brilliant phenomenon, she was Mother Nature about to unleash her wrath.
“Holy mother of all mothers.” Ozzie’s jaw slackened. “Do you see what I see, Rhett?”
“Yes,” Rhett said with a grim smile. “That’s my girl. I hope she gives them hell.”
Mia stood her ground. Rhett gave her credit for courage but she was a fool. Rhett knew Ava would make the right choice, so he didn’t try to stop her.
“Well, what’s it going to be, Mia?” Ava’s voice sounded as grand as her display of powers.
Rhett was learning something new about Ava every time she pushed herself, though he worried she might burst. He had no idea how her ability worked.
“I’m not going to apologize, you freak.”
Oh, no. She did not just say that.
“Uh oh.” Ozzie crouched lower. “Ava hates that word.”
Four massage tables zoomed across the room at a flick of Ava’s finger, boxing in the girls.
“Like this is going to stop me. Pathetic,” Mia spat.
Mia didn’t know when to quit. Ava didn’t want to hurt her, but she kept punching Ava with insults. Rhett had to do something.
Ava’s hands trembled. Her body was shutting down.
“No, they weren’t intended to hurt you, and they certainly won’t hold you in.” Ava shook her thin shoulders. “That was a distraction—this will do the damage.” Ava flicked her index finger. A metal tray flew off the counter like a rocket and collided with Mia’s face, knocking her head to the table. “The table is to break your fall, idiot. I was being generous. What about you, Ella? Want to walk with me or be carried out like your friend?”
Ella blanched and softened her stance, giving the impression of compliance. Her voice squeaked like a frightened mouse. “I was going to cooperate. I swear I was. I’ll walk.”
Poor girl. She shook with her arms crossed over her midsection.
The door slid open.
“Why are you all wet? What happened here?” Naomi cursed, her eyes darting around the wrecked room. “Are you guys okay?”
Ozzie pointed to Ava, gawking at her as if she was a goddess. “She did it. It was pretty awesome.”
Tamara laughed. “I should have been here earlier to see it all. The sounds did not do it justice.”
Reyna smoothed a hand over her face. “We’re in so much trouble. Zen’s not going to like this. It’s a good thing this room had no windows.”
“Well, at least we’re all going down together.” Rhett planted a kiss on his girl and supported her with an arm around her waist. When she’d stopped the bullets at Mitch’s apartment, she’d fainted. “You okay?”
Rhett gripped her shaky hand. So cold. All the warmth flushed out of her when Helix had diminished or had burned out. Or however her power worked.
“Yeah. Just a little lightheaded. At least I didn’t black out. I got a little carried away.”
“A little. Just a little.” Rhett chuckled to lighten the mood.
“Are you and Oz okay?” She examined him. “You’re wet.”
“Oz and I are fine. Do you want a change of clothes? We could try to find—”
“No. Let’s get out of here.”
Rhett was worried about her. How much could her body take?
Ava had practiced every spare second. Anyone else would be wiped out, but maybe someone like her didn’t need a lot of time to recover. If Helix could replenish her quickly, then perhaps it was all good.
“Come on. Someone want to help me drag this lunatic?” Ozzie’s shoes squeaked and squashed through two inches of water as he headed toward Mia. “Yup, Zen is going to flip out. Can we pretend it didn’t happen? Or do one of you girls have the power to put everything back together? Why can’t I have that kind of power? Why am I talking and nobody is answering me?”
“‘Cause you talk too much, Ozwald.” Rhett grabbed Mia’s other arm and hauled her up with Ozzie’s help.
Ozzie’s mouth scrunched together into a pout. “Ozzie. It’s Ozzie or Oz.”
How Rhett loved to mess with him, and Rhett knew Ozzie liked it, too, since he did the same to Rhett. It was the way they were.

Cooper and Jada warned me the life of a hunter wasn’t for everyone. There’s a reason only a handful of people, out of the millions across the planet, survive our calling. I believed I would be the exception to the rule. A natural in the art of the hunt. Blinded by my own arrogance, I was hellbent on proving them wrong.
 
At first it was easy. The adrenaline pumping through my veins. The rush of the mystery. It kept me going, constantly moving towards the next case.
 
Until… a wrong move nearly got Cooper killed.
 
Now, we’re alone in the middle of nowhere as unspeakable darkness closes in. I thought I was ready. Now, all I want is out. Can I dig deep and channel the strength required to keep us both alive? Or will there be a fatal cost for my mistake?

This is amazing,” she squealed. Didn’t every girl dream of meeting their
Prince Charming? It was such a vivid, peculiar dream that it was almost
frighteningly real.

A gentle tap on the door got her attention. “Come in.”

A lovely brunette girl entered. She wore a dull-coloured robe with a
grass belt, and her long, brown hair was neatly tied back. A cream silk dress
hung over her arm. The young Tsinian curtsied before approaching Becky. Taking
Becky’s hand, she led her to a stool next to the mirror. She watched carefully
as the girl began to dress her hair.

“You’re very quiet,” Becky said. “You either can’t speak or have been
ordered not to. It doesn’t matter which. So, this place is called Sidinia?”

“Tsinia,” corrected the girl before she quickly covered her mouth.

Becky turned around. “Ah! So, you do speak.” She laughed. “It’s okay; I
won’t tell the old man. What’s your name?”

“Kezar.”

“How old are you, Kezar?”

“Old? I do not comprehend.”

“How many years of age are you?”

“I do not recognise what you mean.” Kezar bent her head, as if she were
ashamed of not being able to understand.

Becky realised she would have to explain herself if she was to make Kezar
cheerful again. “Okay, when you are born, you live one day, which makes you one
day old. When you have lived eight years, you are eight years old. Understand?”

“I believe so,” Kezar replied as she continued dressing Becky’s hair. She
braided the sides and pinned them to the back of Becky’s head while she let the
rest of the hair hang loose. Kezar stood Becky up and began undressing her.

“So,” Becky repeated, “how old are you?”

The girl stopped what she was doing and considered. “I am not acquainted
with this. We do not embrace year or day.”

“Really? That’s so weird. Well, I’d say you look about eighteen.”

“You will not sight many Tsinians younger than I,” Kezar said.

Becky was curious. “Oh, why is that?”

Kezar explained. “When we are born, we are an infant for a short while, a
day, I believe you name it. Then on our second birthday, we become at an age” –
Kezar checked to see she had said the word correctly, and Becky nodded – “at an
age when we are intelligent enough to master the code and arts. Tis a short
while since I first commenced.”

“Are you telling me there are no children here?”

“Tis true. I beg of you; do not convey to Omad that I have conversed with
you. Tis not my place.”

“This is incredible. You know, the worst thing about having a child is
the dirty nappies,” she joked.

Kezar looked at Becky blankly.

“Oh, never mind, you wouldn’t understand.”

“I have concluded,” announced Kezar. “You are prepared.”

Becky stood up and admired herself in the mirror. She certainly looked
like a princess. Her hair was beautifully pinned, and the silk dress reminded
her of a Roman toga. The front hung modestly and tied around her waist was a
gold-coloured rope.

She sighed deeply, wishing she could look this way when she awoke. Men
would fall at her feet. She twirled around, swishing the long skirt from side
to side.

“You are beautiful, Thya. You have the appearance of a true Ganty.”

“What’s a Ganty?”

Larken is a natural born sprinter, but even she can’t outrun the darkness closing in. A shelter-in-place order has been issued, causing widespread panic. Some brush the alarm off as a drill, until people begin to disappear… vanishing without a trace. Left with only one option, Larken’s brother does what he must to save her life… and calls forth Aries.
Considered a traitor by his own kind, only Aries has the power to stand against the Zodia. But he can’t do it alone. Mystically bonded to Larken, the pair must band together for the fight to come if either hope to make it out alive. Neither anticipated the passion that would ignite between them. Yet, in a world suddenly thrust into chaos, it may be the key to their survival.
The Zodia are out for blood with their attentions inexplicably focused on Larken. When long buried truths finally come to light, will their love be their salvation or their curse?

Only inches separated us. He leaned in and let the tip of his horn rake into my hair. I shouldn’t have liked it. I should’ve turned away from him. But his hand was warm and rough on my side, and for whatever reason – whether it was the pledge or not – Aries wanted to touch me. And I needed to feel something other than fear.
I liked the feel of his hand on my hip as it slid down and pulled me closer. Closer. Closer.
Until my chest bumped against his and he inhaled loudly. A strangled sound escaped his parted lips.
I reached up and brushed my fingertips over his horn and watched him shudder. His eyes, when they weren’t focused on my lips, tracked my every movement.
He closed them as I let my fingertips graze his horn again, drifting over every obsidian bump and ridge. His hand tightened against my side, the tips of his claws digging in ever so slightly. His free hand cupped my jaw as a rumble tore from his chest.
“You tempt me,” he said. There was tension, accusation, and something more profound in his voice.
The dark slashes that were his eyebrows furrowed as I lowered my hand, taking it away from his horn and brushing it down his chest, over his black tunic. His breath hitched as I slid it back up to toy with the hair at the nape of his neck. I didn’t know what came over me.
Maybe it was the fact that he was so close, or the gravity of the situation in which we’d found ourselves. Or the brazen but reverent way he held his hand against my skin, against the mark. Maybe it was the look in his eyes that told me he wanted me to touch him back.
Whatever it was, something had shifted between me and Aries… something dangerous. Because if I was going to survive him, I couldn’t allow myself to fall for him.
