For Gemma Green’s first time, things should have been straightforward. Find your subject, hold their gaze and push a thought into their head to save them from future disaster – Aversion complete. A pretty simple process given that the subject was to have no recollection of the experience. But Russ Tanner doesn’t seem to want to forget. In fact the more she tries to avoid him, the more he pushes to get to know her. Gemma knows she has a problem but is she facing the side effects of a failed Aversion or has the school’s tennis champ really fallen for her?


I received this book in exchange for an honest review

In this book we follow the life of a young girl, Gemma, who has the ability to alter people’s minds. She, and the others like her, are called Averters. Normal people don’t know about them, only other Averters can tell who’s Averter and who’s not. Only there’s a difference between Gemma and the other Averters: she’s female and the others are males.
There comes a time for Gemma to complete her first ever aversion. She thinks it went well and the one being averted changed ones mind. But did it actually go that well or was there something that she did wrong?

I really liked this book. There is something in books that are written in first person that makes me like them even more, even though the plot in the book isn’t that great. But that’s not the question in this book at all! The plot is great and I could get in Gemma’s life very well, like it was me who was experiencing everything, not her.

Oh, and the romance? Maybe it’s just me and it has been a long time since me and my fiance fell in love for the first time and I’m a hopeless romantic who loves all this romance stuff, but damn I could feel the butterflies flying in my stomach like they usually do when you’re with someone you love. Their relationship was built nicely. What I really liked, was the fact that Gemma didn’t fell for him immediately, like girls usually do in books, but it actually took some time and there were times when she was doubting the fact that he really likes her.

But I still feel that there were things that I would have liked to be explained. Though I think that I’ll get my answers in the books to come in this series. I’ll be definitely continuing reading this series but I think I’ll read something else before that.
