About me

ARC Review! Altercation By Mignon Mykel

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.

Altercation is the first book in the Playmaker Duet and is also tied to the Prescott Family series as well.  Okay can I just mention how much I love duets?  I love knowing that there will be two books, I never usually have an issue with a cliffhanger but while I love a long series a duet at times it just what this book whore needs.  Okay sorry for getting side tracked; now it is time to talk about Altercation.  I do have to admit one more thing I was at first hesitant on this one but that hesitation went out the window very quickly once I picked up my kindle and began to read.

Be prepared to have your emotions go crazy because this is an emotional one for sure.  You will not want to put in down once you start, or at least I didn’t so when that thing called life got in the way I got grumpy until I could read it once more.  The twists and turns, the angst, the journey that Porter and Asher’s relationship goes on was well written and developed and honestly I don’t think I would have liked it if it wasn’t as well developed as it was. If Porter and Asher don’t take a piece of your heart then I don’t know what to tell you because they have permanent place in mine and I won’t be evicting them any time soon.

Now there is a cliffhanger obviously, one that I may or may not have yelled about once I got there which had my family looking at me like I lost my mind, but let’s be honest I get that look multiple times a week when reading.  If you are looking for an emotional read that will stay with you then this is one that you need to have on your TBR lists!
