Apprehension by Sylvie Parizeau – Review

IMG_2613.JPG

Rating – ⭐️⭐️

This book sounded good on paper, but it just wasn’t for me. I found the characters to be flat and bland and, being a character-based reader, I just couldn’t bring myself to care about them or their story.

Zac and Magali meet on a ski slope, while Magali is swooning over a cupcake and Zac gets, um, aroused. It’s all pretty insta-lovey and a little bit irritating (though, to be fair, I’m probably just bitter because I’m single…but hey ho). Their inner monologue about each other is very cheesy and I just… being obsessed with a stranger you meet one night (and, in Magali’s case, pretend to ban from a ski slope) for six months before you (surprise!) meet them at work?

…my bitterness is showing, isn’t it?

To be fair, this book could probably work if:
1. the insta-love was left at insta-attraction
2. the dialogue wasn’t so cheesy and forced
3. the characters were more fleshed out

Honestly, I am disappointed with this book. I’m a sucker for a good new adult romance when it’s done right, but this, for me, wasn’t it.

*Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this book*
