Title: Entanglement
Author: Dan Rix
Date of Publication: November 16, 2012

"...the scientific explanation is quantum entanglement, whereby the boy and girl—even when separated by great distances—react instantaneously to changes in each other's states..." —Dr. Casler Selavio, on the entanglement of halves.

In a world like ours, humans are born in pairs. When a newborn boy takes his first breath in the coastal town of Tularosa, the exact time is noted, recorded in the Registry, and later compared to the birth times of other newborns around the globe. There will be one identical match—his half. They will meet on their eighteenth birthday and they will spend their lives together. Except this time, there is no match.

Hotheaded heartthrob Aaron Harper is scheduled to meet his half in twenty-nine days, and he doesn’t buy a word of that entanglement crap. So what if he and his half were born the same day and share a spooky psychic connection? Big deal. After breaking one too many teenage girls’ hearts, he’ll stick to brawling with the douchebag rugby players any day.

Until the day a new girl arrives at school and threatens everything he takes for granted.

Cold and unapproachable, Amber Lilian hates the growing list of similarities between her and the one boy she can’t read, Aaron: born the same day, both stubborn, both terrified of meeting their halves. . . . All the more reason not to trust him. That she would rather die than surrender herself as her half’s property is none of his damn business. But once lost in Aaron’s dangerous, jet black eyes, she’s already surrendered more than she cares to admit.

Tangled in each other’s self-destructive lives, Aaron and Amber learn the secret behind their linked births and why they feel like halves—but unless they can prove it before they turn eighteen, Aaron faces a lifetime alone in a world where everyone else has a soul mate . . . and he’ll have to watch Amber give herself to a boy who intends to possess not only her body but also a chunk of her soul.

ENTANGLEMENT, a 75,000 word YA thriller, will appeal to readers of Michael Grant's GONE and Ally Condie’s MATCHED.

Read Dan Rix doing some explainin' HERE!


Because I love this book so much, I asked Dan if he can sponsor five ebook copies for my giveaway and he said yes! It's contemporary YA with tinges of sci-fi and of course, romance abounds. If you read my review, I pretty much spazzed through the whole review. Haha! So there will be FIVE WINNERS of ONE EBOOK OF ENTANGLEMENT. Contest ends February 4. Winners will be notified via email and must respond within 48 hours or I will choose a new winner.

Good luck!

    1. Thank you everyone for participating in the giveaway and for your excitement!! There's nothing better for an author than stumbling across these kinds of comments:D

      For anyone who's tried to find my facebook author page, I apologize that it's still a profile and not an actual page yet (so many things on the todo list, I just keep putting it off!) Since that was me who dropped the ball, I promise to add anyone and everyone who friend requests me so you can earn that extra entry.
