Hockey’s most eligible bachelor must run interference to get the one girl he can’t have.

Sydney:
I’d never even heard of Caleb Prescott, God’s gift to hockey. Who watches hockey anyways? Not me, I’m too busy with college and work. My part-time just for fun job has now asked me to recruit this player for a new dating show. Sounds easy enough. . .until he insists I become part of the show.

Caleb:
I only agreed to compete on the dating show to get closer to Sydney—the redhead pixie I’d do anything to see again. But unlike the women competing for my affection, or the puck bunnies desperate for my attention, Sydney isn’t impressed by my hockey skills. I never miss a shot, I don’t care if she calls interference, I’ll do anything to win her heart.

Swoon❤

Interference Teaser 1

After reading From the Beginning (Prescott #0.5) back in April I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book by Mignon! Although, I originally thought it would be on the timeframe of Noah Sr. and possibly teammates, not his children. However, I’m 10000% happy with the direction Mignon decided to take the series in!!

Interference consist of dual POVs from Sydney and Caleb and is broken up into two parts. Part One, is mainly of Syd and Caleb meeting and their time on the cruise. Part two, is filled with what happens when Syd leaves and the drama a reality TV show can bring. Throughout Interference we mostly get Caleb’s POV which I enjoyed! I found that Mignon did an excellent job really of showing readers a male’s perspective. Sydney still has a good amount of chapters from her POV which I highly enjoyed, she’s sassy and hilarious! When things got bad though I wanted more chapters from her to hear her POV on how she was feeling towards Caleb. The chemistry between the two of them is obvious from the moment they meet and well crafted from beginning to end. I liked how Mignon gave Syd and Caleb minor character development, both characters weren’t bad people with major issues but each had minor fault when it came to trust.

The only thing I wasn’t okay with was the ending. It wasn’t a bad ending! To me it just felt slightly rushed. Things happen, and thankfully they get resolved but I felt like the pace of the Chapter 31, Chapter 32, which takes place one week later, and the Epilogue could have been slowed down a bit.

I can’t wait for the next book in the Prescott series! I love the whole family and can’t wait to read more about the kids but I’m really hoping we’ll get Jonny’s book soon🙂. Also, I think it would be pretty cool is Sydney’s family had a spin off series!

Would I recommend Interference? YES!!! Gosh, yes! Also, be sure to check out From the Beginning (Prescott, #0.5)! My review can be found here! I can’t wait to read more by Mignon, she just has a way of grabbing readers attention and holding it for the full duration of her books.

DON’T MISS WHERE IT ALL STARTED… FROM THE BEGINNING, BOOK #0.5 IN THE PRESCOTT SERIES!

From the Beginning

Author: Mignon Mykel
Series: Prescott Family, #0.5
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: April 4 2016

goodreads

Before the Prescott name became big in the hockey world, there was just Noah Prescott, fighting for a spot on an NHL roster. Never did he imagine a simple note from a shy fan would speed up his world.

Ryleigh Scott had an issue talking to men, but she knew she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk to Noah — potentially negative labels, be damned. Never did she imagine a simple note would start what could only be described as the beginning of the rest of her life.

This is Noah and Ryleigh — before the NHL contract, before the kids, before going back home.

This is Noah and Ryleigh from the beginning.

ABOUT MIGNON MYKEL

Mignon is a twenty-something (…getting awfully close to thirty-something) who resides in Wisconsin. An avid reader since her preschool days, she ‘blames’ her mother for teaching her to read during that all-important time during a forming brain. Some of her earlier memories of reading include her mother buying her a book at the mall — and finishing the book before they even returned home.

Writing happened soon after the reading started. Her first writing piece can be found in a box of other important papers from growing up. It’s about an apple who was her friend, but she had to eat.

The first series Mignon started to write was about a close family of one brother and his three younger sisters. She started writing this family and their friends in 2005, but as soon as the Prescott family took over her mind, the Ashbys fell silent. Maybe someday we’ll all hear from the Ashbys, but those Prescotts…. The Prescotts are excited to have their stories told.

Waiting on Wednesday (41): Sometimes We Tell the Truth

Sometimes We Tell the Truth

Author: Kim Zarins
Genre: Young Adult, Retellings
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: September 6 2016

goodreads

In this contemporary retelling of The Canterbury Tales, a group of teens on a bus ride to Washington, DC, each tell a story—some fantastical, some realistic, some downright scandalous—in pursuit of the ultimate prize: a perfect score.

Jeff boards the bus for the Civics class trip to Washington, DC, with a few things on his mind:
-Six hours trapped with his classmates sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
-He somehow ended up sitting next to his ex-best friend, who he hasn’t spoken to in years.
-He still feels guilty for the major part he played in pranking his teacher, and the trip’s chaperone, Mr. Bailey.
-And his best friend Cannon, never one to be trusted and banned from the trip, has something “big” planned for DC.

But Mr. Bailey has an idea to keep everyone in line: each person on the bus is going to have the chance to tell a story. It can be fact or fiction, realistic or fantastical, dark or funny or sad. It doesn’t matter. Each person gets a story, and whoever tells the best one will get an automatic A in the class.

But in the middle of all the storytelling, with secrets and confessions coming out, Jeff only has one thing on his mind—can he live up to the super successful story published in the school newspaper weeks ago that convinced everyone that he was someone smart, someone special, and someone with something to say.

In her debut novel, Kim Zarins breathes new life into Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales in a fresh and contemporary retelling that explores the dark realities of high school, and the subtle moments that bring us all together.

EXCERPT

 

Caleb

As she was about to rush into explaining when I would board the cruise-liner, as if I had agreed to it, I held up my hand. “Miss Meadows.” God that sounded too formal for a woman like her. “Sydney,” I tried again, definitely preferring the taste of it on my tongue. “How about we meet over coffee or something tomorrow? Ten?”

Her eyes widened slightly, just briefly, before she nodded with a fixed smile in place. “Of course. Yes, that will give you more time to let it sink in. So long as you agree to—”

I cut her off with a grin. While yes, this show was against everything I had ever thought for myself, I had a feeling that sitting with Sydney and talking to her about the show, as if I were agreeing to it, would be the only time I’d see this gorgeous redhead again. I didn’t quite know what was drawing me to this short pixie of a woman, but I definitely wanted to see her again. Tomorrow I’d have no time constraints and she could talk all she wanted.

But before I realized the words were out of my mouth though, I said, “I’ll do it,” agreeing to her pitch.

Shit. Fuck.

The smile filling her face wasn’t one I was about to take away, and her amber eyes danced, lightening just slightly to bring out fiery red specks. “We can discuss contestants tomorrow then. Wonderful. Oh, great!”

I had to swallow a chuckle at her obvious excitement. We agreed on a place to meet and I watched her leave out of the corner of my eye while heading toward the ice.

Like I said, I liked her ass.

This is the soundtrack of the fashion party scene for Alexander Wang’s launch party.

 

Death Cab for Cutie – Little Wanderer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io9ivuo4r6Q

Both Eddie and Fin are lost in their respective worlds; I think this song channels that idea.

 

Gooey by Glass Houses

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGIS8npb5GQ

I was listening to this song while we were writing Fin’s Rebellion/her partying with Eddie.

 

Vampire Weekend – Everlasting Arms Lyrics

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laRzrthxAis

With all the drama surrounding their relationship would it be better for Fin & Eddie to be alone? Or is their love too important?

 

Charlie Puth – Marvin Gaye ft. Meghan Trainor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igNVdlXhKcI

Fin & Eddie are each other’s escape from real life to a certain extent. They can be goofy together and just enjoy life. I think that’s really important don’t take life too seriously.

 

Skrillex and Diplo – “Where Are Ü Now” with Justin Bieber

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nntGTK2Fhb0&index=2&list=PLqsBwU56IBGfAvMgfeBPTnSSkpMX7h1kI

There’s a lot of chaos that goes on in this book and I think Fin and Eddie can both relate to this song at different time frames.

 

Demi Lovato – Cool for the Summer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=il9nqWw9W3Y

I think secretly Fin would love to really rebel but in the end, it’s not her way.

 

Taylor Swift – Wildest Dreams

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdneKLhsWOQ

There’s a point in the book where the two are together on the lawn watching the stars and I can’t help but think that they wouldn’t mind being off on an adventure together.

Welcome to Hartwell, a quiet seaside escape where uncovering old secrets could lead one woman to discover the meaning of a love that lasts…

While Doctor Jessica Huntington engages with the inmates at the women’s correctional facility where she works, she’s always careful to avoid emotional attachments in her personal life. Loss and betrayal taught her that lesson long ago. But when she comes across a set of old love letters in the prison’s library and visits the picturesque town of Hartwell to deliver them to their intended recipient, she finds herself unable to resist the town’s charm—and her attraction to the sexy owner of a local bar proves equally hard to deny.

Since his divorce from his unfaithful ex-wife, Cooper Lawson has focused on what really matters: his family and the boardwalk pub they’ve owned for generations. But the first time Jessica steps into his bar, Cooper is beyond tempted to risk his heart on her.

Yet as their attraction grows hotter and Jessica remains stubbornly closed off, he begins to realize it will take more than just passion to convince her there’s only one real thing in life worth fighting for….
