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 really got into the feel of reading this book. It got me hooked from the start and I felt the characters were great and well thought out. Plus, there's forbidden love and sort of a mysterious feel which helped create excitement to the book.
The main character Gemma, was one I adored. She is a risk taker but knows the difference between idiocy and bravery. She puts people's lives before herself and never gives up hope. She does things to the best she can. Now enter Russ. He's a really sweet character and is kinda curious. He's also smart enough to not fal for Gemma's story. He knows something is going on.
The plot of the book was unique and different. In the book, there are people called averters who can choose the path for a person's life. The target does not remember anything afterwards. However, with Russ, he seems to remember something and won't leave Gemma alone. Top it all off, Gemma feels this pull to him as well. Together, they try to find out what this all means.
Overall, Aversion was a great read that was really original. It was light, but not so much.Aversion kept me reading and reading once I started. It was really interesting.
