"I’m going to destroy him…it’s the one thing I can do to try to get some justice for Karly."

That is how our story begins. Zara’s cousin Karly commits suicide in the prologue and then we meet Zara. She has just transferred to Northwestern and has a plan to take down the man responsible for driving her cousin to such a desperate state. Karly was Zara’s best friend, so she has changed her major and plans to make sure someone pays for her death.

I honestly have no idea how to rate this book. I loved the idea of the story and all that followed, however I couldn't connect so much to the writing style. Found it a bit lacking and poor. And from time to time it got on my nerves.

The main heroine was extremely annoying. I couldn't stand her at all. I wished so many bad things for her in my mind. Not because of her agenda, but for how she annoyed the hell out of me. I loved how she wanted to destroy him for what "he did".

Zara had already planned on transferring to Northwestern, but when her cousin, Karly dies; Zara knows that that her move will be more than just attending college. It’s about getting revenge. It’s about ruining the man, the professor... but Zara has a fine line to walk as she begins to be drawn in by the Charms of Noah Bain.

When Zara transfers schools and walks into Professor Bain’s class, she knows immediately she’s caught his eye. It’s exactly what she wanted to have happened. But she didn’t e

Zara has her world torn apart with one phone call. Learning that her cousin, her best friend, killed herself rocks Zara's world. The only thing that gets her through the heartache is her plan to get revenge on the man she feels is responsible for her cousin's death. Wanting to ruin Professor Noah Bain is her goal, but she isn't prepared for the connection she feels to him.
First I’ll seduce him. Then I’ll ruin him.

It was really hard for me to like Zara and to understand her

NOTE: I feel the need to let all future readers know that there might be some triggers in this book that some may find so distasteful that they won't like the book because of it. SO, if you have prejudices against cheating in relationships that you cannot turn off while reading a fictional story then STOP and read something else. It would not be fair to the author if you rated the book poorly based on personal feelings .... ok then, moving on ...

Zara is on a mission to seek revenge after her cousin dies. She sets her sights on the man she holds responsible, an English lit professor named Noah Bain. It's hard to write a review for this story, there are so many things I want to say about this but I don't want to spoil it for anyone else. There was a lot I liked and there were a few things I didn't like. I liked the direction this story took, I liked how steamy it was, I liked that it was fast paced and I really liked the writing.

First of all, it needs to be said that I am most certainly not a fan of books written by two people. Weird, I know. But I do have reasons. What if the authors are great together but their books are crap when they write alone and then they never write another book together after I've fallen in love with their combined writing style?!? Or what if the authors are horrible together and then I never give either of them another shot because that one c

I've read books by both authors that I've really enjoyed. But holy wowzers when these two get together to write a story they blew my mind. From start to finish its a gripping read.

Zara is out for revenge. She's looking for revenge of the suicide of her cousin and best friend Karly. That's how she finds herself as a student to Professor Noah. When she starts having feelings for him can she still go ahead with revenge??

I've got to admit I didn't see the twist coming which is a great plus for me.

I have not read books by either of these authors but have always heard great things about them. So hey - why not read one book by them both!

The story of student and professor is usually the same type of plot and same outcome. Breaking Noah is different where the student is already aware of the professor and has a plan already in place. Zara had already planned on attending the same college, but her reasoning for going completely changed. But there is always 3 parts to a story - A side,

I didn't really enjoy this book as much as I thought I would, the key com p moment in that was the cheating. Noah he was an alright man, "s***. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. I just don't know what to do here, Zara. I just don't know." I didn't make a lot of notes or highlights because the cheating just really irritated me.

When Karly (an attractive, outgoing, intelligent Northwestern University student) commits suicide, her cousin, Zara Hamilton is left devastated in its wake. Zara & Karly were more like sisters than cousins--they told each other everything. Or, at least, that’s what Zara thought. What was so awful that Karly not only couldn’t confide in her, but resulted in her best friend taking her own life?

When Zara receives Karly’s suicide note, she finally has the “why” behind Karly’ death--Karly was pregna

I am not sure how to rate this book. I liked the storyline, I liked the male hero-Noah is suuuuch a great book boyfriend-, but something was missing.
Okay, we have Zara. Zara is full of hate and revenge for the man who hurt her cousin, Karly. Karly fell in love with a man who left her pregnant. When she realizes that he doesn't want their baby, she decides to end her life in order to stop the pain. Some time after her suicide, Zara decides it is time to take her revenge.

While I started the book with a "WHAT THE HECK!" (the prologue really trough me for a loop..I so wasn't expecting what happened to happen) it turned out to be a pretty good book. I wish I could have given it five stars but at times Zara really got on my nerves. I really liked Noah and the chemistry he had with Zara was hot, I just wish she wasn't so vindictive. That being said, it was an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more books by Missy Johnson and Ashley Suzanne.

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Breaking Noah is the first book that I have read that was co-authored by Missy Johnson and Ashley Suzanne. Though I have read Missy Johnson before, I was unfamiliar with Ashley Suzanne. I wondered how these two would write together, and I have to say that the writing was good in my opinion. It flowed well and I thought that the book was cohesive and didn't seem to have two separate voices as can sometimes be the case with more than one author.

I'm a huge a Of Missy Johnsons and Ashley Suzanne's books so I was really excited to get a review copy of Breaking Noah. It sounded amazing and I couldn't wait to read it.
I was not disappointed at all. Breaking Noah was just as good as I thought it would be, if not better.
This story is told from alternative POV's which I absolutely love. This really helps me connect more with the characters as you get to look in each character's mind more deeply than you do with just 1 POV.

Anyone who loves teacher/student romance books, this one is for you. Anyone who knows me, you know I'm all over these books. When I was offered and ARC for BREAKING NOAH, you can bet your sweet cheeks that I jumped at the chance.

Ashley Suzanne and Missy Johnson did a great job co-writing this book. I could not tell the difference in their writing style...It flowed effortlessly.

There was so much I loved about this book and then again, so much I hated, I didn't know whether to go enroll in some college classes or commit homicide!

Zars is a girl who lost her best friend in the world, her cousin Karly, to suicide and she is out for revenge against the man that caused that to happen. Without much thought or evidence, she concocts a scheme that will bring that man to his knees and this is the story of that journey.

Received this book for an honest review from NetGalley.

Zara has lost her cousin, Karly, in a horrible way. They were best friends, more like sisters, so when Karly started acting funny and not confiding in Zara she became suspicious. Her suspicions were too late. Feeling like she had no way out Karly committed suicide, changing Zara forever.

Zara has one thing in her mind....justice for Karly and her unborn baby. The baby the father didn't want. In her suicide note, Karly had said her professor w

Usually with a Professor and student novel there tends to be “weirdness” however, there wasn’t much age difference in the Professor and the student. Hey, the student could go out to clubs, have a glass a wine and indulge in relationships due to her being of age. It definitely turned this book into something realistic.
Zara moved to Northwestern to be where her cousin, Karly was. Her and Karly were close like sisters, or so Zara thought. Maybe there is more distance between them th

Breaking Noah sucked me in from the beginning. Missy Johnson does a great job of dropping little pieces of information along the way that keep you intrigued and wanting to know more.

In the beginning of this book we read a mysterious yet breath taking scene in which a girl named Karly calls her best friend and cousin Zara and then commits suicide. It's gut wrenching and quite a powerful way to start off a book. Then we fast forward to Zara leaving h

I read most of this book in one setting! I started it and could not stop turning the pages. The first chapter drew me in so deep, I had to know what happened, and what was going to happen.

Zara has a plan that seems like it is going perfect. Hurt the person who hurt her cousin. But she never planned on Noah. Zara is pretty messed up over her cousin’s suicide. I can’t think of anyone in real life who would actually conceive of the type of plan Zara sets out to execute. But the hurt and loss she f

Breaking Noah started off good. Zara was devastated with her cousins suicide and wanted to seek revenge on the person who caused it. As a result she transfers earlier than planned to Northwestern, the college her cousin Karly attended. Zara sets out a play to destroy Noah as she believes he is the professor Karly was in a relationship with. What Zara did not plan on was the pull and attraction to Noah.

When I first found out that Missy & Ashley were teaming up to write, I just knew it was going to be pure perfection. Come to find out it went and exceeded my super high expectations. I absolutely loved this story.

Zara was going to join her cousin and boyfriend Dillon at Northwestern in a year, but her cousin died. It broke Zara and the world she knew and loved was gone. Karly was her best friend, the person she could talk to about anything. Zara was going to get revenge

With one last letter from her cousin Karly, Zara is on the road of revenge.

She planned it all out. Left her life and started anew, all for him... Noah Bian.

He wrecked Karly and now Zara will do the same. She will seduce and out him... at least that's her plan.

If this story doesn't grab you by the first page, then your crazy. These two authors, Missy Johnson and Ashley Suzanne merge together for an epic tale of revenge, seduction, lies, secretes and revelations. We get two povs, Zar

I always love missy johnsons work but working alongside Ashley Suzanne things just got a whole lot hotter.

Zara's cousin karly is attending college and once karly is finished with exams she is transferring over to be with karly and they can plan there futures out together and with Zara's boyfriend also at the same college it makes sense, that is until one day that things change for the worst and Zara has to plan her life completely differently but she has planned to get revenge on those involved.
