I know I say this with every Jenn Foor book I review, but I honestly believe Jenn Foor can do no wrong when it comes to creating a new book. Noah is no different. I was so completely excited when I heard she was creating a NEW SERIES with the Mitchell/Healy Clan. I have read every book in the Mitchell Family Series and I just wasn't ready to say good bye to that family. Well thankfully I do

I tried. I really, really, really tried but I can't. I'm not a grammar nazi but when you can't tell the difference between then and than, I feel smoke coming out of my ears.
Also, who calls a vagina "hot muff"? Even typing it makes me gag. That's as sexy as taking a dump. Now add cheesy dialogue and I want to forget the past few days so I don't have to ever remember that I read this book.

A new generation of Mitchells, and it was good to be back in the family, headed by Colt and Savannah. Noah, Colt's son gets this spin-off series started with a story about his doubts on whether or not he wants to follow in his father's footsteps.

While stewing on his indecision, he meets a lost angel, Shalan, who is talented and dreams big. Noah inadvertently becomes the catalyst to Shalan's new found hope and success, and in a New Adult let's see where this attraction takes us way, thi

I've been a big fan of the Mitchell family series fan and I was really looking forward to this new series. I hate to say this but I didn't love it, it wasn't bad, but I didn't connect with it. First, the teenage cousins seemed really bratty and not really people I'm looking forward to learning more about. In The Mitchell series Ty is a prankster but his jokes are funny ost of the time. The twins just came across as bullies. Also, I don't like where Bella's charcter is going. I dislike weak chara ...more

Holy fuck was this book HOT HOT HOT!! I'm in love with Noah, there's just something about them country boys *sighs*. This book had some family drama, hot sex & more. Jennifer Foor's writing skills just keeps getting better & greater ;).

I can't wait for more Mitchell & Healy family series. But I mostly can't wait for the twins books Jax & Jake. Those boys sure knows how to piss off their family lol, gotta them though.

Having never read the Mitchell Family Series I wasn’t sure what to expect from Noah, which although a new series – The Mitchell Healy Series – is still a branch from the original tree. So this book was like a blank canvas.

Firstly the book goes through the characters and the background, so, for someone like me it gives you a basic story of the history. Equally those who have already read these books can skip this part and go straight to the meat (so to speak!).

I like how the story started.. Noah breaking up with her girlfriend, and his girl begging him. It was pretty exciting, but after that, It was just... BLAH!

I've read at least 2 novels from the Mitchell series, and one of the reason why I haven't read the other novels yet is because of the 'CHARACTER OVERLOAD' there's too much! It's not that I could actually remember who's who. The only character that I do remember was Savannah, the rest, I don't. The characters from the other novels kept p
2.5-3 stars

This book pissed me off, then it got ok and I was kind of coming around, then it pissed me off again and just made me frustrated...

I feel like we grew up learning and loving Noah, and I feel that this book was a HORRIBLE representation of the boy we all came to know...

Shalan was just a different story and she kind of annoyed me for a good portion of the book...

At the end of it though, I am still happy Noah found someone with Shalan.

I’ve been a Mitchell Series Fan from the very beginning. The close family ties, the dynamics and the characters themselves have been the strongest draw for me. So as soon as I heard that Noah and Isabella (and hopefully the younger siblings) were getting their very own series I couldn’t help but feel excited.

In this book, Noah is all grown-up and I must say he sure has matured into one “fascinating” young man. By all means he isn’t perfect. Early on he exhibits this rebellious streak which I bla

Noah: A Mitchell Healy Series By Jennifer Foor 

Noah was running from a lifetime of expectations and someone choosing his life for him.  He came from a tight night family and a strong minded father who wanted him to take over the family business whether he wanted to or not.  Shalan was a bartender in a tiny town, running from a cheating ex-boyfriend and a life of abuse from a drunkard father.  The two come together at a time when they could both use a friend and the chemistry ignites.  Shala

I loved Noah, "it's takin' all of my willpower not to take you upstairs right now and eff the sh** out of you, woman. I ain't even goin' to lie about it. That right there just made my di** hard." He is not one to be easily embarrassed or is he self-conscious which shocks the hell out of Shalan:
When he opened his eyes it startled me. I turned away even though I knew he'd caught me. "You still up?" He stood and walked into the bathroom, not even closing the door when he started to urinate.

I am a big fan of The Mitchell Family series, however, I did not enjoy this one. Colt is by far my favorite in this entire series and I did not like how he was being potrayed. I don't know maybe I just don't want to read about Noah being so grown and doing grown things. Did not like where Bella was heading in this one. Reminded me too much of her mother and given how much Ty loves Miranda and he has been there since her birth how could she be ok with being treated or settling for less. She is da ...more

Everything about this book was not really something I expected.

THat doesn't necessarily have to mean a bad thing, at least it wasn't predictable.

So the Mitchell- Healy family is not all happy ever after I thought it would have been. The twins that Tyler and Miranda had are a real trouble maker. Not in the most wonderful way. I can honestly say that there is no family love between Noah and the twins, at least now there isn't.

Isabella honestly reminds me of her mother, picking up assholes. Though

I started reading Noah right after I finished with the last book in the Mitchell Family series & I was kind of weirded out because I still saw Noah as a kid but as I kept reading, I pushed that aside & got it through my head that he was in his 20’s now. This was such a good book. Noah was due to take over the Mitchell Ranch but he didn’t want to. Well, at least that’s what he thought. He loved his family but he needed some space. He & his dad butted heads one night & Noah left. O ...more

Noah Mitchell didn't want to be tied down to no family farm, he just thought there was more to life than that. So after a fight with his dad he leaves and heads out on the open road with no place in mind. That's how he ends up in bfe meeting a spitfire who would forever change his world.

I am so ridiculously in love with this cowboy! Noah stole my heart within minutes of meeting him. No, he’s not perfect. He hate’s his job and the plan for his life that has been laid out for him, without regard to his wishes. He just needs to get out and discover what it is that he wants to be when he’s grown up, especially now that he’s grown up.

Noah has one of those big, loud and obnoxious families. Some members you want to smack, some you want to embrace. But no matter what you want to value

Like father, like son – this was the one recurring thought I had as I read about Noah Mitchell and his need to make his own happiness and stop being held back from following his dreams…whatever those may be. Noah is the only son of Colt Mitchell, and as I’ve read most of the books in the Mitchell Family Series, I’ve witnessed Colt struggle with the same issues Noah does in this new spin off series by Jennifer Foor.

I'm a huge 'Mitchell Family' fan SO I was understandably thrilled when I found out that Foor was continuing on this families stories following the now grown up children of the characters we LOVED in the original series.

I don't know about you but I love series that center around a family. And if you didn't know- Jenn Foor has an AMAZING family series called the Mitchell Series.

Noah is the first book in a spin off series of all of the children of the characters in the Mitchell Series.

Noah is the oldest cousin and son of Colt and Savanna. Now- not all authors can get away with writing a kid as a sex having adult but Jenn did an amazing job. By now- Colt is a grown man and I really wasn't think
