Title:  Incompatible 
Author:  Chantelle Feasel (Twitter) 
Genre:  Science Fiction, Genetics, Science Experimentation 

…There’s got to be more to love than a number. There’s a feeling; somewhere deep inside, that triggers, that ignites, when we meet the one…

When the pressure of a palm print against a cold, hard screen can instantaneously identify a good match based on genetics, few would waste time trying to determine the resilience of a relationship on their own.

Except Ruby.

At eighteen Ruby is recruited for a trial, entering blindly into a government experiment for an undisclosed length of time. Surrounded by peers and the buddings of newly-brewing affairs, Ruby finds her interests captured by a handsome neighbor almost immediately. Stubborn with the belief that she alone can determine a relationship's validity, the couple chooses not to check compatibility… until it's too late.

She soon finds herself in conundrums of proportions she’s never realized possible, only to discover she knows nothing about the place she lives or the world outside of her confinement.

Author:  Samantha Durante (Twitter) 
Genre:  YA, Science Fiction, Dystopian, Paranormal

It's only been three days, and already everything is different.

Paragon is behind her, but somehow Alessa's life may actually have gotten worse. In a wrenching twist of fate, she traded the safety and companionship of her sister for that of her true love, losing a vital partner she'd counted on for the ordeal ahead. Her comfortable university life is but a distant memory, as she faces the prospect of surviving a bleak winter on the meager remains of a ravaged world. And if she'd thought she'd tasted fear upon seeing a ghost, she was wrong; now she's discovering new depths of terror while being hunted by a deadly virus and a terrifying pack of superhuman creatures thirsting for blood.

And then there are the visions.

The memory-altering "stitch" unlocked something in Alessa's mind, and now she can't shake the constant flood of alien feelings ransacking her emotions. Haunting memories of an old flame are driving a deep and painful rift into her once-secure relationship. And a series of staggering revelations about the treacherous Engineers - and the bone-chilling deceit shrouding her world's sorry history - will soon leave Alessa reeling...
