I was very intrigued by the fairly vague blurb for Impact and not having read anything by these authors before, I was excited to dive in.
I’m not sure what I was expecting from this story but the gut wrenching emotions I felt as I read took me completely by surprise. This book deals with some heavy subject matter, which at times was really difficult to read. Although certain aspects of the story are graphic, they’re dealt with in a respectful, not sensational manner. Zoe’s feelings of helplessness and therefore her need to be in control were valid and understandable. A damaged soul who’s mostly cut herself off from her previous life in an attempt to start afresh. She’s living the best way she can but it’s no life really, she’s just going through the motions.
As Zoe’s story unfolds, we are introduced to some fantastic supporting characters who encourage her to step back into the light and, despite her fears, make her aware of how courageous she actually is. Once Tripp enters her life, he sets about demolishing the protective walls she’s built around herself with care and understanding. He’s a wonderful hero and I loved his personality and his thoughts and feelings on life. He tries to work out what she needs and inject some much needed optimism into her life. However, I felt their mutual attraction happened rather quickly and their developing relationship had me concerned that the trauma of the past was about to be trivialised and swept away “by the love of a good man”. Oh how wrong I was. I won’t say any more as I don’t wish to be spoilery, just prepare for the unexpected!
Impact is an excellent title for this emotional rollercoaster of a book. My first read by these authors but certainly not my last.
a marked effect or influence
My life has been severed into two distinct origins.
You don’t need to know too much of my life before. It’s no longer relevant to my story.
The damage is mine. I’m a ghost. The shell of the girl from before striving to survive in the after.
Love. Life. Friendship.
I’ve pushed it all away in my fight to breathe another day.
Who am I?
Worse, I’ve lost sight of why I continue to endure.
Until he reminds me of the girl of before.
