Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Impact Of You by Kendall Ryan

~ Synopsis ~
A New Adult Romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan

Needing an escape from her past, Avery chooses a college where no one knows her. Keeping a low profile was the plan, falling for the intense frat boy, Jase wasn’t. Yet she can’t deny how alive she feels when he’s near. Even as common sense implores her to stay away, her body begs her to get closer.

Jase, numb from his own family drama, has grown bored with weekends fueled by nameless girls and countless bottles when he meets Avery. Helping her cope with her past is better than dealing with the bullshit his own life’s served up. Determined to drive away the painful secret she’s guarding, he appoints himself her life coach, and challenges her to new experiences. Getting close to her and being the one to make her smile are simply perks of the job.

But when Avery’s past boldly saunters in, refusing to be forgotten, can Jase live with the truth about the girl he’s fallen for?

Recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content.

3.5 Star Review by Annie
“How do I put this…… He’s a shark, babe. You need a guppie.”
Running from her past Avery moved far from her home to go off to college leaving behind her two dads that adopted her and the secret that could ruin her. She hides away from everything and everyone secluding herself and not fully getting the college experience. So, when her roommate and friend beg, plead and finally give her no other option she gives in and attends a college party. What she wasn’t expecting is to meet Jase, the playboy of Delta Sig fraternity. Jase challenges her and makes her want to do things she was once afraid to even try. Will this finally help her to escape her past or does she continue to live in her self-made bubble?
“What a pair we make sitting out here alone in the dark. I’m running from my past, and he’s trying to discover his future.”
The whole campus thinks of Jase as the womanizing pretty boy, and at one point they may have been right. He once used sex and partying to cope with all of his family problems, but now Jase is trying to turn a new leaf and be more that what people expect of him. The only problem is he has never met a girl he was willing to open up for. That is until one night at a party he saw a sexy girl who happened to look more damaged then him. Can Jase move on and discover who he is, while helping Avery get over her past?
“You want to be my human sexuality tutor? That’s original. And not douchey at all.”
The Impact of You was a fun, fast read. It had a lot of potential to be the most amazing book ever, but the lead character was just not relatable.  I really loved Jase’s character he was sexy, funny, compassionate and to top it off he has a little bit of cockiness that just made you want to get to know him better. Jase is definitely swoon worthy. On the other side of the spectrum you had Avery, that woman just drove me crazy. I hated how one minute she was one way and then literally the next paragraph she was almost like another person altogether. This made it hard to relate to her because you never felt like you really knew who she was. Her character alone was the reason I gave this book a 3.5 Star Review.'
