Her, and The Impact of You.
Straight-laced and well-mannered southerner Emmy Clarke is out of her depth in New York City’s
fashion world, but when she lands a job as an assistant at a modeling agency it
seems like the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Working under the

York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan delivered a sexy
and addictive contemporary romance about Emmy Clarke, a sweet southern girl out
of her depth in New York City’s cutthroat fashion industry, and Ben Shaw, the
hot male model who introduced her to a world of pleasure. But their story is far from complete…Emmy Clarke is no quitter. Toughened by her experience working for fashion
heavyweight Fiona Stone, Emmy has come a long way from her country girl roots,
embracing her fast-paced and unpredictable life in New York City.
Though that life comes with more than a few complications.
First there’s the mystery of Fiona’s pregnancy, which may or may not involve Emmy’s
boyfriend, superstar male model Ben Shaw. Emmy has always known that Ben comes
with more baggage than she can handle—and not the Louis Vuitton kind. Yet Ben
is the only man who has ever loved Emmy for who she is, and she wants nothing
more than to do the same for him, even if it means forgiving his past and
overlooking their wildly different lifestyles.
But when a shocking secret from Ben’s past comes to light, unraveling all of their
progress, Emmy must decide if their relationship is worth the fight, or if it’s
time to ignore her passion for him and let go.
