Official Summary: “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?” – Goodreads

Review: First off I am not a huge fan of romance. That being said the romance in this story wasn’t annoying or over the top. It felt natural and unforced. It played a huge part in the story, but it added layers. It wasn’t there just for the sake of it.
I quite like the paranormal elements to it, it is a subtle element to the story. It didn’t feel too paranormal or out there. I liked that near the end it added more to that element, made that start to feel a bigger part of the story. Like I said before I am not a fan of romance, I like other parts to stand out more than that side. Will I read the rest of the series? Honestly, I am not sure. Maybe later down the road. Nothing about this story has screamed at me to rush to read the rest.
Hmm, interesting book! I feel you on the romance bit- I’m not that big on it either! To be honest, after this review I don’t think I’ll rush to add this book on my TBR, but I’ll definitely keep it on my radar! Great review!!
