IMPACTThey always say that two wrongs don’t make a right…

Well, she was wrong for breaking into a house that didn’t belong to her; even if she and her daughter had nowhere else to go.

And, I was wrong for watching her on the surveillance camera as she moved through the house and climbed into bed.

So I offered her a job and a home. Her smile…Her curves…Wrong has never felt so right.

Now, I want to make the biggest impact yet…want to make her mine

I received an Advanced Readers Copy for an honest review. Thank you Give Me Books Promotions for providing the ARC.

For my first Danielle Norman, Impact was damn good! I cannot get enough of this writing style, it was something about the entire book that really had me from start to finish. I loved the characters, the plot, the overall pacing. Truth be told, I already bought Enough and Almost from the Iron Orchids Series in Paperback because I NEED MORE! More damnit. But before I get ahead of this review, I suppose I should get into the steamy details…

Firstly what stood out was the writing style of Norman. Everything was perfectly humorous. I laughed until my cheeks burned and my stomach was clenching. I cannot help but think this is one author who just has a knack at creating the most hilariously scenes that are perfection. I loved it, Norman had me chuckling within the first page of inner monologue to which I say “Thank you m’lady, you beautiful soul you…” because very few authors have had this same effect on me with their writing style. 

With the writing style came the main characters that honestly, I was head over heels in love with. Damon is the reluctant hero who is possibly the sweetest (at times questionable type motivates) most sexiest of demeanor I have read. I enjoyed him possibly the most. Though I would have loved to have gotten a little more of his background story, I feel there was more to him than met the eye, but nonetheless he was the hero at the right time which fit perfectly. As for Katy, I swooned for her. At times I felt somewhat of a distaste towards her, really battled with my love/hate for her as a character. Not in a bad way, she was a struggling single mother which a really shitty history, so she was extremely guarded which at most times made her come off as a heinous basic bitch. At times she was rude to people trying to give her a helping hand, but I understood the situation, she had been burned and ruffled – she lived her recent years with just her and Bee (her daughter) knowing to not trusting anyone. 

So I liked Katy, she annoyed me at times, but not in a bad way in the least, I understood her character. She was flawed and strong in so many ways, I loved this about her. The way she was with Bee was heart felt and touching. This of course aided in the angst drama situations of the novel. Here we have this relationship between Katy and Damon developing while Katy is still trying to do what is best for Bee. Once Damon’s Greek family gets involved this heightens the emotional conflicts Katy is battling. Letting people in, letting people close to her Bee bug – it was emotionally beautiful and fun to read!

Speaking of the blossoming relationship between Katy and Damon – can I just get a HOT DAMN?! Though it was a slow burn, I was completely engorged. From the slow tension between boss and employee situations (though I would have liked a little more in the office) to the housing situation, I liked it a lot. I will warn however that this is definitely a slow burn, there is sexual tension but definitely nothing really hits a climax until little over half the novel. I personally loved it. I thought this made the plot flow perfectly together instead of jumping right into the sex. 

Overall, I loved it. I cannot get enough of this. I could not recommend Impact enough; I was beyond happy with spending my night reading this novel. I definitely plan on adding more Danielle Norman to my TBR because I need more of this woman in my life.
