Book Review: Aversion by Kenechi Udogu

(I received this free ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads 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?

I really enjoyed reading Aversion. It was a good book, a quick read, fast paste, and right to the point.  One of the things that really stood out for me was instead of the guy trying to hide things and stay away from the girl, it was the girl that was trying to protect the guy.. A good change up of the norm is great. I haven't really read anything with this particular idea of an Averter so the idea of it was very unique.

I loved Gemma's and Russ's characters and the connection that they shared with each other. I find it rather romantic that wherever either one is the other one will be able to find them. The bond that they share can't be removed and no matter how hard Gemma may have tried to push it away or fight it she couldn't deny the connection that is between them.

The relationship with Gemma and her Father was good but also complicated on her father's end. So much was kept from her but it was also for her protection. 

I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I enjoyed every bit of it.
