Sometimes holding on, impedes moving on.

First comes love, then comes marriage…

But before the ceremony could start, Porter’s world was knocked off it’s axis.

He fought for years to break down Asher’s walls, to see past her ghosts…but some ghosts may be too hard to fight.

Asher knew better than to believe she could keep her past in the past,

Keep the filth of who she was, from touching the Prescott family.

But as badly as she wants to keep Porter away…she needs his family more.

What you see is what you get…

And even the most astute eyes can’t see the biggest ghost.

But sometimes holding on is the only choice you have.

*Note: This is book two in a duet. Book one, Altercation, MUST be read prior to Holding.


Holding is the perfect conclusion to Asher and Porter’s tragically beautiful duet…

I still thank my lucky stars that I was fortunate enough to discover the extraordinarily talented Mignon Mykel! The first story I ever read from her was Interference, Sydney and Caleb’s story back in 2016. Truth be told I almost didn’t give that book a try, but I am so glad that I did because if it wasn’t for that story I would have never discovered such an amazing author who has become one of my all-time favorites! I am now a supporter of all things Mignon Mykel! This woman is way too modest for her own good and she refuses to accept just how talented she really is…

Anyways back to my review… I have been eagerly waiting to write up my review for Holding, because I didn’t want to spoil anything for readers of Altercation, the first book in the Playmaker Duet…so I forced myself to wait until now because spoilers suck. So here I am attempting to write a SPOILER FREE review while still sharing my thoughts about this incredible story!

Holding begins shortly after the events at the end of Altercation and holy moly what a great place to pick this story back up at. If you loved the adventure in the first part of the duet, then you are going to adore what happens next. Asher and Porter are a one-of-a-kind couple that will melt your heart and have you in tears after just a few words. Oh and did I forget to mention that this book will have you UGLY CRYING even more. Yep, that is right. Mignon Mykel’s words will give you all the feels and her characters will stick with you long after you reach the end…

Okay…so that is all I am going to say to avoid giving any major elements of this story away. All I can say is that you need to drop everything and read this duet right now!

Review – Breakaway (Playmaker Duet #0.5) by Mignon Mykel


Breakaway by Mignon Mykel
Series: Playmaker Duet #0.5
Genre: Coming of Age, Mature Fiction
Release Date: February 28, 2017
Buy Now: Amazon


Once upon a time, in a faraway place…

I learned that monsters exist
That the dark is meant for fear
That sometimes, you can’t even count on yourself

I just have to get past senior year finals, and I can break away-

I can leave the past,
the monsters,
the ghosts,
far, far behind.

I just can’t break beforehand.



While the Trouble Maker introduced us to Porter, the youngest of the Prescott clan, Breakaway is the second novella in the Playmaker Duet and is told entirely in Asher’s POV.

The extraordinary Mignon Mykel takes her readers on an emotional rollercoaster and shows us a strong message about the struggles that so many children in the foster care system face day in and day out. This book is certainly darker then anything I have ever read from this author, but it is needed for the readers to better connect with Asher (by the way I absolutely adore that name, well some people dislike boy names for girls, I LOVE them) and understand her circumstances leading to her chance encounter with Porter!

Although this story is both extremely emotional and may be considered a trigger for some, I strongly recommend giving this beautifully written story a chance because it is one you need to know. This author tugged on every single one of my heartstrings and left me in tears from the beginning to the very end! I am already counting down the days until Altercation is released!
