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.

Author's Note: This novella is a prequel to the Playmaker Duet. It is not required to read before, or even with, the duet, but for a full picture of Asher's life from 17 to HEA, it is recommended.

About the Author

Ever since a young girl, Mignon (yes, like the filet) has been penning stories of falling in love, from the innocent love of a seven-year-old and her apple friend, to a Holocaust love story at the age of twelve, to the eventual Love In All Places series, a series with reader favorite family, the NHL-playing Prescotts.

A self-professed Starbucks snob, you will more often than not find her in what has been dubbed "her corner" at a local Starbucks, where she writes whatever her characters tell her—at least, when Porter Prescott isn't interrupting.

When not writing or nannying the cutest little boys, you can find her singing, painting, designing book-ish things, or hiking the beautiful mountains of her current home in Arizona (although she will always be a Midwest girl at heart).

4.5 of 5 Mignon Mykel did a wonderful job with BREAKAWAY, the first book in the Playmaker Duet. My heart completely went out to Asher. What happens to her at the beginning to this story was difficult to read. I wanted to be able to protect her and felt helpless reading the events unfolded. This story could have some triggering effects for some people. Asher is an amazing individual. I love the meaning behind her tattoos. Her life seems to be one giant obstacle to overcome. I appreciated that Asher became such good friends with Carter Douglas. I thought it was great what Carter’s brother, Hunter, does for Asher. I was trying to figure out if Mignon Mykel had another series about Carter and her family. I couldn’t find anything. I could easily see a Douglas series. I thought it was clever how Asher meets Avery Prescott and is introduced to the Prescott family. I love how insistent they can be. I also, love that The Douglas’ and Prescott’s instantly adopt Asher. After everything she has been through, I could understand her being skeptical. BREAKAWAY is a short story and fast read. I didn’t want the novella to end when it did. I cannot wait to hear Porter Prescott’s and Asher’s story. I was happy that the first chapter to the next book; ALTERCATION was included to tide me over. I cannot wait to see how things pan out. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
