What happens when you start falling for your worst enemy? Fans of Abbi Glines and Monica Murphy will relish this addictive novel of smoking-hot seduction—and revenge gone so wrong, it's right.
I wasn't always this jaded. I had a clear head, things I wanted out of life, and a concise plan on how to get there. For being only twenty-one, I pretty much had it all figured out. Until the day my cousin died.
I spent months going over all the details surrounding her death, trying to figure out how I missed the signs, and the only thing I could come up with was she would still be alive if it wasn't for one person: her professor. So I transferred to his college, enrolled in his class, and set my new plan in motion.
First I'll seduce him. Then I'll ruin him. I've just gotta stay strong and not let his charm and my emotions get the best of me. Because someone has to pay for her death. If it's the last thing I do, I'm going to break Noah.
***I received this ARC copy of Breaking Noah from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept and NetGalley for an honest review.***
Reading the teasing description and seeing the cover art truly intrigued me. Was I going to read a book full of erotic play where the Hero and Heroine fought to see who would top in the relationship, or was one or the other misleading?
What I discovered was a story of love, forgiveness, intrigue and betrayal. This is by far one of the better novels of this genre I have read in some time.
I really wanted to hate Zara for what she was doing to Noah as I read the story, but when her motives became clear and she began digging deep into her feelings and relying on her intuition, I really began to like her. The devastation of losing the person you love the most to suicide leaves the survivors with more unanswered questions than answers and guilt that digs deeply into your psyche and attaches to your soul. The author writes in such a way that you experience these emotions with Zara one moment and then you feel and understand the guilt and temptation bouncing around inside of Noah.
As a professor, he has an ethical obligation to have no sexual relations with his students and he has kept this side of himself separate from his students until Zara. Even without her scantily clad body he is drawn to her wit and humor. Because of this, in my opinion, he is chopped liver to the wiles of one Zara Hamilton. As things progress, the complications grow. Noah is involved with Shannon, though it’s more of an old marriage, you’ve lost that loving feeling stage and Zara is somewhat involved with Dillon, the frat boy let me fuck anything with an X chromosome.
I’ll not spoil the ending for you, the journey from beginning to end is one worth taking not once, but again and again. Somehow I think I’ll love the characters I love and hate Dillon because he is a douche bag, each and every time I read it.
