Four surprising, impactful, tear jerking cries!

“It’s not the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars of the mind”... Aisha Mirza’s words beautifully define not only the inner fight of this book’s heroin, it also tells how all the victims feel after fighting against this heart wrenching, unfair traumatic experience !

Zoe is a warrior, survivor, phoenix rises from ashes, after four years of her rape, she is still trying to learn how to breath, join the social life

How do I review this book? I've tried three times now to write this review & keep deleting it. It's the kind of story that I know will stay with me forever. It feels very personal to me, and I'm going to guess that unfortunately it will for other women too. And that's okay - these stories need to be told. We hold no shame and the more it's talked about the more the stigma is removed.

It's a brutally honest recount of a woman who thinks sh

This book was amazing! I felt everything that Zoe was going through. Her pain, pleasure, anger, sadness, hope, and fear. There are so many emotions. I enjoyed all the characters. This wasn't an easy road for Zoe. What I loved was the struggle she had with her feelings. This is a story that will break your heart, tear at your soul, and at times leave you numb and breathless.
Be warned though this isn't for the faint hearted, but incredibly well written and will have you think about it for

Once again Haley Jenner has written a book with such an emotional punch that I’m left reeling!

Impact deals with how one fights daily to survive traumatic events. You see the highs and the deep down lows, and how it is possible for one to prevail…to become a true warrior. It is about a love so deep that even our darkest demons cannot shroud us in blackness forever.

Zoe and Tripp have stolen my heart. The sweet and witty banter between them is endearing and made me outwardly smile and blush. Their

Welp! This story ripped me apart and gently put me back together. It’s not for the faint of heart. It will put you on an emotional rollercoaster for sure. I felt for Zoe and just wanted to go into the story and hug her. And Tripp! I just love Tripp! Zoe is beautifully broken and finds herself again. I love emotional reads and this is one for sure!

Where to start???? I was not familiar with Haley Jenner's work before this book but because of this book I now have a new author to add to my list of favorites. "Impact" is absolutely amazing. It's been a long time since I've read a book the digs deep in into your soul and shakes your core and this book did just that. I consider myself tough because life has dealt me a lot of punches and the only conclusion I have as to why I'm still standing is that I took those punches and learned to hit back. ...more

These are the meanings of Impact. These meanings are how this book impacted me.
This book is raw, this book is emotional, this book gives you “all the feels”. It breaks you and puts you back together again.
This is the book that will stay with you always.
This book is the next book YOU HAVE TO READ.

Haley Jenner is a powerhouse duo that knows how to pack a punch. They write so seamlessly you forget that there is two of them.
Impact was no different. I've been counting down the days till I could get my hands on this book for what seems like forever and boy was it worth it.
This book is a must read and came at the perfect time for me. It's about horrific events and fighting daily battles within, you'll learn a lot from this book.

I’ve tried to write this review for a couple days now...but I’m just speechless!!! So many emotions and soooo well written that it just sucks you in to the story!

Tripp is by far the most perfect hero ever and I so wish he was real. He’s sweet, funny, charismatic, sensitive, and smart all wrapped up in a sexy body. His thoughts on life, love, and magic are just....phenomenal.

Our girl Zoe has experienced more in life than she should have had to at a young age. But major props to the authors for g

Impact is very different than what Haley Jenner normally creates, but it is no less spectacular. Attributes that you can depend on when reading a HJ book: emotion-evoking trials that have you struggling to read the next sentence, real-life experiences that no one likes to talk about but are necessary to acknowledge, and soul-shattering love that makes you want to stay in their worlds forever.

Zoe has had an incredibly difficult journey to travel and is determined to do so alone. She is so far fro

If you’ve read this authors other books, this is totally different and you are in for a psychological surprise. I don’t want to give too much away but I can’t implore you enough to pick up this book and read it. This is by far the best book I’ve read by this duo. This book will keep you riveted until the very end.

How we deal with the impact of trauma varies depending on our personalities and the severity of the trauma. Our opinions are often firmly ingrained so that we become blinded and don’t

Haley Jenner brought their A game as usual. I had no idea what I was about to jump into. Its a heavy subject to read about. But they took me on a journey with Zoe and Tripp that will stick with me for a long time to come. As always their words laid out with such thought. The story just flows from tragedy to beauty with ease. They paint such a vivid picture of the story, I feel as though I can picture it all in my mind. Like I’m watching a movie, if you will. There was no shortage of tragedy, dra ...more

Zoe and Tripp's story is so emotional and beautiful, it is one you will never forget. These two have tattooed their names on my heart. Haley Jenner's words are PERFECTION....I got tingles from all the feels. THIS IS A MUST READ.....CLICK IT NOW.
"You and I are living our world of firsts. It's exhilarating. It's freeing. It's fucking magic."

When I saw the cover and blurb for Impact, I knew I needed this book. I also knew I was going to fall hard for Haley Jenner. And boy, did I fall. I read this book in less than 24 hours. Now let me tell you, this doesn't happen to me often, especially in the last year or so. I'm going to be honest, the more I read, the fussier I become and I've been in a bit of a book funk. It sucks.

As with any Haley Jenner book your heart will get broken but thankfully put back together and full of so many feelings. I laughed, I definitely cried, I had the butterflies in my stomach as you watched Zoe and Tripp’s attraction and love grow. Sexual tension between these two were off the charts. Grab a fan because your ovaries will explode with these two. My emotions - gah - if I could of reached through the book I would have probably suffocated her with hugs and been a sobbing mess.

"Love is the one thing we should fear most in this world. It has the ability to destroy. People give their life for it. They obsess over it, they let it consume them."

This book..... Where do I even begin? Impact was a heartbreakingly beautiful, life changing, emotional journey that I'm not sure that I'll ever recover from. Zoe's journey was so moving, so powerful and haunting; your rooting for her, you cry for her / you cry with her. && Tripp was just so unique, authentic, patient and re

A powerful, gut-wrenching book that leaves the reader in awe of the emotions pouring through them! I have waited for this book to come out, excited to read Zoe’s story and delve into what I knew was going to be a book like no other, but I never thought that it would have me in tears, crying in heaping sobs or laughing out loud at the dialogue between the characters. It’s a book that is brutal, but also a book that shows true strength and how love from the right person can help rebuild even the w ...more

The fight for the pot of gold at the end is worth it every time.

This book, these writers, have broken my heart and healed it at the same time.

"This is the hardest thing for us humans to do. Be our perfectly flawed selves. But how can we expect someone else to love us when more often than not we despise ourselves?"

Haley Jenner created magic with their words, and I am in awe. This new to me author rocked my world, and Impact is definitely the first of many of their books I'll read and love.

Story: 5/5 a fresh premise
Steaminess: 3/5
Romance: 4/5 bc self-love was such a big theme
Tone: sobering, angsty, inspiring

There's life after severe trauma, but can there be love? Can a survivor reclaim their heart enough to give it to someone else? Haley Jenner is brave enough to ask. Impact gives voice to the fallen who hide in plain sight, and gives inspiration to us all. It's the story of finding romance among ruins. It is difficult,

How to you get your thoughts together enough to give this book the 20 Stars review it deserves?
One thing I will say is Haley Jenner has earned themselves another permanent reader.

I don’t know how to better explain this gut wrenching, beautifully chaotic, heartbreakingly mess of a story. I feel that these pages—these characters—will stay with you for a while, if not forever.
Everything about this book felt real; so bare and raw.

Beautiful heartbreaking story but then it’s so soul changing. One day everything has changed for Zoe. Zoe is basically a ghost in her body. When she least expected she meets Tripp the mysterious sexy man that makes her smile and almost brings Zoe back to her old self. Lots of tears while reading this book. I wanted to be Zoe’s friend and just help her anyway I could. Then Tripp the man is truly any woman’s dream man.

Impact is an extremely emotional story that will have you in tears, laughing, and picking your jaw off the floor. It truly takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions from start to finish, as you watch the evolution of Zoe from a woman who is barely existing to a woman who takes back control of her life and starts living again. With the help of good friends (Rae....I love her), and an amazing man (Tripp.....swoon), Zoe works to break free of the chains of the past and be the woman she was mea ...more

Impact by Haley Jenner is my second six-star read of the year and I am in total awe of this book. First, let me preface my glowing review by letting you know this book may be a trigger for some. Be prepared; the primary theme of the book is sexual assault. Saying that, from the first line of the first chapter, you're not just reading you're transported. Zoe isn't just a character on the page, you are Zoe. I think as a woman I automat

“I’ve learnt that scars aren’t ugly, they are not blemishes on your body or soul. They are fighting wounds. Trophies of what you’ve endured to get where you are, to become the person you were always destined to be.”

Profound words that epitomize what perseverance is about. Strength, fortitude, resilience. Zoe is all of that and more despite all she had endured!

She found herself with the understanding and empathetic support from friends and more especially Tripp! I absolutely loved their dynamic,
