Peek Inside The Dating Debate

Even though hottie West Smith is fluent in Harry Potter, Nina Barnes isn’t sure he’s boyfriend material. West has a big secret, and even though Nina checks all the right boxes for a girlfriend, if she finds out—it could mean the end of everything.

Nina Barnes thinks Valentine’s Day should be optional. That way single people like her wouldn’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.

5 stars: "This is such a cute book! Thanks to Chris Cannon, we finally have a YA novel that lacks the overwrought drama populating so many of the genre. It was so refreshing to read a book about two (fairly) normal teenagers just pursuing love and happiness the way teenagers do, in a realistic setting with the issues and stakes that teenagers actually face." —Nicole Evelina, author of Daughter of Destiny

4 stars: "This was an easy couple to ship, and my heart nearly jumped out of my chest when I saw I was getting an epilogue!" –Sam Kozbial, We Live and Breathe Books

5 stars: "This book is absolutely perfect! [...] The delightful sparring that is their courtship, filled with Harry Potter references and dueling causes just kept making me smile. Perfect for fans of Kasie West. Highly recommended." –Lissa Hawley, Goodreads Reviewer
