Review: The Intern by Serena Akeroyd

Holy Hell – This book is the absolute definition of gripping.  The Intern grabbed me by the throat from the very first scene, and didn’t let go. 

It’s almost impossible to describe The Intern without spoilers.  Devlin and Micah’s story takes you places you never expect to go, but you’re SO glad you went there.  I spent quite a while waiting for “the other shoe to drop” in the story, though I wasn’t sure whether it would be Devlin or Micah who would initiate it.  I never would have expected what happened in The Intern, and it quite literally kept me awake one night thinking about it.

While certain parts were difficult to read, it was so worth it to get to the end.  Both characters are complicated, interesting, and ultimately very likeable.  The tenderness and respect between them is heartwarming, and the way they stick together when the unthinkable happens brought tears to my eyes.

In my opinion, The Intern is one of the best books of 2020.  It tackles some complicated and sensitive issues, but  it was really well written, and it brings to light a subject that isn’t talked about much, but should be.  I LOVED The Intern, and I know it’s a book I’ll read again.  It’s the first book by Serena Akeroyd I’ve read – but it will not be the last! Five very enthusiastic stars for this one.
