He was my salvation.

Interviewing the notorious owner of ‘Ignition’ should have been simple. When asked to go home with him, I should’ve said ‘no.’ But Noah Hamilton’s tattooed, hard body and rugged features were impossible to resist. I wanted him to touch me. And I longed to be loved again. I craved the escape and was desperate to know him. Much like his lifestyle, our he

“Falling in love is a dangerous game.”

Beautiful Sorm is the debut novel by Megan Isaacs and I have to say it was entertaining. Very much on the hot and dirty talking side, but also quite heavy on the angsty relationship drama.

Two star crossed lovers - Noah and Lizzie, start a hot and heavy affair after only wanting one night. Eight months later the relationship is so much more than an affair. But both have a lot of secrets they keep from one another and when Lizzi

"Falling in love is a dangerous game.
But for me? I know it's already too late."

I have to admit that I'm a huge angst whore so when I when I saw this story, I just had to jump in and start it immediately. That being said, I had a love/hate relationship with this book.

Elizabeth a.k.a Liz has been in a rocky abusive relationship with her famous boyfriend for a couple of years now and she's reach the point where she just doesn't care about that relationship. While interviewing t

The blurb of this book pulled me in immediately which is why I felt like I needed to read this one. It holds not only romance but a bit of drama and suspense as well. As a whole, this book is quite complex as there are a lot of different and emotional things going on within the story. I won’t write what they are here because it may spoil it or some readers but you should be warned that you may need some tissues with this one! I don’t take what happens to Lizzie in thi

Lizzie meets Noah while doing her job and there Noah realizes that he wants to make Lizzie happy. One thing leads to another, and Lizzie and Noah are in a whirlwind of a relationship that had me happy but scared at the same time.

Beautiful + Dark meet Soulful. Loved it..

When a beautiful story brings so many emotions out of you that you almost want to take a moment and step back to admire it. But then you realize the story wont wait for anyone or anything. It was simply too addictive and so beautifully done.

A love story that has so many gorgeous and heartbreaking elements all the way through.

This is the debut novel by Megan Isaacs. I was instantly drawn to this book by the blurb and cover.

"I thought I understood what love was, but the dream became battered and broken. I always believed love as a safe place, like here."

Lizzie is an unfortunate woman. She single-handedly has chosen THE WORST man on the planet to shack up with. He is delusional and carries his distorted view of life into his relationship with Lizzie. Because of this, Lizzie sees fear instead of love and see

This was a 3 star read for me. The first half of the book was fantastic. It was a love triangle that had me glued to the pages with the steaminess and angst going on in the book. At about 60%, I started to loose a bit of interest because there were some holes in the story for me. It's as though there were too many twisty turns that I lost my connection to the characters a bit. Nevertheless, the writing was great and the premise of the book was interesting. I'm wondering if Bear will get a book, ...more

Beautiful Storm by Megan Isaacs is nothing like I expected. I read the blurb, I checked out the reviews, but nothing could have prepared me for Noah and Lizzie. Nothing. Lizzie is interviewing Noah because of the amazing work he does on American muscle cars. Noah specializes in American muscle cars…and women. That is, until Lizzie steps through the doors of Ignition. Oh, he still specializes in American muscle cars, but his new focus is Lizzie. Too bad she brushes him off because she has a boyfr ...more

Megan Isaacs does a phenomenal job with this debut novel! This book alone has made her one of my top favorite authors! I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us!

This book…… I don’t even know where to start. First you meet Lizzie, she’s a sweet woman who is stuck in a destructive relationship. She knows she needs to get away, because things are getting bad. But she just doesn’t know how. It’s amazing that even though she has her moments of weakness, she also has this strength to her

I wish the first 70% of this book was as exciting as the last 30%. The ending was intense. Super fucking intense. The beginning? Not so much. I mean, yes, it had it's moments. Mac, Lizzie's boyfriend turned ex, was fucking psychotic and abusive. That whole situation was tense. Noah is the hot, one-night stand that turns into an 8 month relationship before Lizzie has to call it quits. Again. Tense. But the constant barrage of "I'm not worthy" drove me insane.

omg can we say swoon worthy, that's exactly what Noah Hamilton is exactly that.

Lizzie is living a life that most people would love but if you really look you will see she's barley surviving til she meets Noah and her life changes but with a possession, stalking husband who is a drunk , abusive ass she has a decision to make to protect those she loves. I absolutely loved this and Noah is amazing and this story flowed amazingly

From the start of this book I was sucked in and needed to watch Lizzie and Noah's story play out.

Lizzie is in a not ideal relationship, and the morning she's about to do a huge interview, she decides it's time to leave Mac. When she walks into her interview, she's intrigued and attracted to Noah, the person she's interviewing for her article. Lizzie can't explain the draw she has to Noah, but does everything she can to ignore it. Noah feels the same draw to Lizzie but knows he can't be what she

And when I saw the gorgeous cover, I was done for; I knew I HAD to read this book. My instincts are rarely wrong, and they stayed true here. You never know what you're going to get from a new author, but from my experience, lately I've been reading some excellent ones. Writing that sounds as if it had come from seasoned authors.

lizzie is a strong willed woman loves her job and interviews "Noah" the owner of Ignition from there , there is an instant attraction between them both.

lizzie has a her own personal hell shes living she had to deal with an "abusive" husband who beats on her whenever he's around. she keeps this hidden from Noah until further along the line.

Noah isnt a relationship type of guy he likes sex and makes it clear

Incredibly hot story! I loved the contrast of how Noah was such a bad ass and how great he treated Lizzy. I also liked the supporting characters (wouldn't mind reading a book about Bear!)

There was crazy sexual tension, plot twists I didn't see coming, and the emotions were so beautifully written that I felt like I was really transported into Noah and Lizzie's world. Everything I want in a book!

Megan Isaacs did a bang up job with her debut novel Beautiful Storm. For half of the book you think you're getting one story, then she shifts into high gear and really lets it fly. It seemed like a difficult transition, however looking back, she executed it brilliantly and kept my interest peaked until the very last page.

While not a huge fan of insta-love, as the story progressed, I was okay with the actions of Lizzie and Noah. They meet when she is assigned to interview him for a magazine and u

NOAH IS MINE!!! That’s right ladies, back off because he is spoken for. But I will let you borrow him to enjoy for a few hours while you read.

The story starts us out three years in the past, at an interview between Lizzie, a writer for a car magazine, and Noah, who owns an American muscle car repair shop in England. From the beginning you know these two will end up together in some way, shape, or form. But what you don’t count on is the uphill battles they face.

Love and life in all its messy goodness…

Lizzie Ryder and Noah Hamilton knew they had to be together from the minute they met. The physical attraction was instant when Lizzie interviewed Noah for a magazine article. Neither expected the sparks to fly so high or so hot but quickly agreed it was going to be just an affair. Lizzie had secrets and though she was pretty forthcoming they still managed to put a wedge between them. Best laid plans and all that…

This book I felt like it had the total package. It has suspense, drama, love and just down right deceiving. The book name isight this book is a beautiful storm of emotions just when you think you can’t take no more it keeps delivering.

Elizabeth Ryder aka Lizzie is trapped into a relationship that is just plain toxic and whats worse she can’t just leave if she wanted too. To me in the beginning she seemed frail with no back bone which is sad but I’m glad that throughout the book she found it.

The cover and synopsis is what drew my attention to this debut book by Megan Isaacs but by the time I was finished the first chapter, I drawn in and wanted to know more.

Life is anything but easy for Lizzie but she does a pretty good job at wearing her different masks and hiding it from most. She is strong and confident in her work even though she struggles to succeed in a male dominated world. What has been going on behind closed doors is anot

Megan lives happily in the UK with her husband and son.

If you asked her about herself she would say she's completely mad. Always the introvert with an extrovert exterior. A complete mash up of improbabilities.

She loves her family, but that goes without saying, and she loves tea. Lots and lots of tea. She used to be pretty good shot with a shotgun, but hasn't shot since she was five months pregnant
