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,
far, far behind.
I just can’t break beforehand.
I generously received this ARC as part of Mignon Mykel’s BETA Team in exchange for an honest opinion!
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!
