Sometimes it’s the fight that proves your worth.

Porter Prescott spent years fighting to be his own person.

His goal of playing for a hockey club not associated with the Prescott name finally comes true.

But just as he’s leaving for the next chapter in his life, he meets her.

Asher Spence spent a lifetime learning she was worthless and unwanted.

She learned that sometimes the only person you can count on is youself, and even then, you can fail.

What starts out as picture perfect can only come crumbling down.

No one listened to her pleas before,

Why should they listen to them now that she’s found a place to finally call home?

But sometimes, it’s the fight that takes you out of the game.

Note: This is book 1 of 2 in the Porter and Asher story. This does end with a cliffhanger that will be resolved in book 2, Holding.


Oh no she didn’t…oh yes she freaking did! Mignon Mykel has once again turned my entire world upside down with her newest release Altercation! After reading Trouble Maker (Porter) and Breakaway (Asher), the two novellas introducing us to their backgrounds, I could not wait to get my hands on their full length novel!

Altercation is a beautifully captivating story that will instantly captivate you whole body and soul! The moment this story became available I found myself incased by every word on the page until I finished it a few hours later (super early in the morning when I should have been sleeping). Their story was truly one of a kind and I know that I say this a lot, but Porter and Asher may have been elected as my all-time favorite book couple! I do not think that any other book couple could ever outrank these two in my heart! There is just no possible way!

This story takes place throughout a four year timeframe and the author has done an extraordinary job highlighting and showing us glimpses into the making of their relationship. In the beginning Asher is closed off and if you read Breakaway, you will completely understand exactly why, and she’s afraid of letting anyone in, especially Porter. Eventually, he’s able to break through her walls and their undeniable connection is breathtakingly beautiful. We see the highs and the lows…the good and the bad moments…and trust me they had their fair share of those. Oh and let’s not forget that cliffhanger at the end. OMG that ending instantly left me craving for more and I cannot wait for the next installment, Holding!
