Impact – Danielle Norman


They 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…
I want to make her mine.

I’d like to thank L. Woods PR for sending me an e-arc of this, I have loved Danielle Norman’s books Enough and Almost which both have reviews so you can read them, I loved both of these backs so I had very high expectations for Impact. It did not disappoint!

I loved Damon’s character I vaguely remember him popping up in the other books and I loved all of the siblings in it so I knew this character would be no different. I loved him, he was so protective of his family and friends, I loved the interaction with his family especially as he was forced by his little nieces to build them a tree house, I loved the fact he always had time for his family. I think it showed when it came to interacting with Bee (Katy’s daughter). The only thing I can really complain of is that we don’t really know much of his past, the moment he meets Katy that’s all he is, I would have loved to know more about that.

Katy, I really liked her. I loved that she was willing to do whatever it took to keep Bee safe. Although they were squatting in houses she still taught her that it was wrong and that you had to work hard to get anywhere in life. I loved Bee. My problem with Katy is that anyone who tried to help her she was very suspicious of everyone, I get she was running from her past but she overreacted so many times when it came to somebody tried to help her. I also thought she was passing along some really terrible traits for Bee in terms of depriving her of people who love her and having that trust net to fall back on. Especially when Katy pulled her away from Damon when she found out he had a camera in his show home. I just didn’t agree with that when Katy did it. Also the fact that when things did begin to get romantic with Damon she didn’t try to tell him about her squatting in his show home. I know that sounds more bad about Katy but I loved how hard working she was and even when she got pregnant at 17 she refused to take the easy way out and support herself and her daughter.

I didn’t like Katy’s parents or how fast she seemed to forgive them for how they treated her. It didn’t sit well with me, I feel like there should have been more grovelling in that aspect.

The kidnap plot really wasn’t that well executed it kind of got lost in amongst the Damon and Katy love drama, it would have been better if it was more expended on. Other than that I loved the plot of Damon and Katy and I was on the side of my seat wondering when they were going to confess this secret to each other.

I love the big Greek family. I think this is one of my favourite things about these stories is that we see that big Greek family aspect!
