For years, I've lived in my big brothers' shadows. Heck, I've lived in my sisters' shadows as well.

It comes with being the baby of the Prescott family.

In two years, I'll be eligible for the NHL Entry Draft.
In two years, the world is going to know Porter Prescott for what I can bring to the table, not as the kid brother of San Diego Enforcers, Caleb and Jonny Prescott.

4 "Just Starting" Stars

This is just the beginning of Porter's story but this quick little novella gives quite a punch! After having met Porter in the previous installment of the Prescott Family series, I was excited to see what the youngest was up to. And I love that he surprised me.

Tired of following in his families' footsteps, he wants to break free. Yet as he struggles, he realizes more about his family than he expected. Plus little Porter was turned out not to be so little and I'm really exc

"5 - finding your own path stars!"

I absolutely adored Porter's story!

This novella features the youngest child of Noah and Ryleigh Prescott who we were introduced to in From the Beginning.

This story is of Porter's journey from the age of 16-18 years of age.
Porter's journey is not an easy one.
He comes from a very close, tight-knit family of extremely talented hockey players and over-achievers.
There is also an e

This is my favorite book in the series. This is weird because this is only a sort of prologue novella to Porter Prescott’s full length book. But the author has managed to pack so much into only little less than a hundred pages. My attention was held from the very first sentence in the prologue, but it was from the first chapter that this kid captured my heart.

Porter is the baby of the family. Desperate to step out of the shadow of his larger than life family and to be seen as an individual in h

Trouble Maker by Mignon Mykel is a prequel for her upcoming Playmaker Duet giving us the backstory on the youngest Prescott in the household: Porter. Porter is the baby of the family and has been living in the shadow of his father and older brothers, always being held up to the standard of his NHL caliber family. Emotional at times, you really feel for Porter but also he can find trouble without a stitch of help too. This felt like a realistic story for the age of Porter and his friends and not ...more

Oh, Porter! I grew up with this kid. I was best friends with this kid. And I loved this kid. The one who's a star athlete making some teenage mistakes but always wanting to not be a disappointment to his parents. Now I know why he's Mignon's favorite Prescott.

It was so great getting to know Porter at this age and seeing him fall in love for the first time. Especially since he seemed to have it all together when he met Asher. But not this kid. He was a mess of hormones with poor choices in frien

I love hockey and I love romances, so this book was perfect. Teenage antics along with friends and girls has Porter definitely seeing his share of trouble, so it was good to see things start to fall into place for him. This was a great back story for the upcoming books that will continue Porter's story in the Playmaker Duet...can't wait!

Porter is the youngest of the Prescott siblings and feels that he's always lived in the shadows of his brothers and sisters. As a teenager, he gets in quite a deal of trouble which could jeopardize his dream of being drafted to the NHL as soon as he's eligible and walking out of those shadows.
This story will give us an inside view of Porter and his last 2 years in HS, the decisions he makes and how these will affect and shape his future.
It's a good and fast read that will provide a god deal of i

I really enjoyed this look at Porter the baby of the group thru 16-18 years of age. We get a glimpse of him going thru the normal teenager blues made worse by having siblings and a parent already paving the way to greatness in Hockey and him bringing up the rear as the youngest of the clan. No the ending isn't the happily ever after we are used to getting it is the happy he survived long enough to show some maturity and direction and make his own way in a family where he stumbled before.

This is our introduction of Porter, the troublemaker! Oh boy, does he ever live up to that moniker! However, Ports is sooo much more! He is caring, sweet and loves spending time with family! Being the baby of the family he struggles to find his spot in a line of greatness. He feels like a disappointment when he is anything but a disappointment. I can't wait to see more of Porter after he meets HER! If you haven't met HER check out Breakaway!

Great read. To me it highlighted the feelings and insecurities of living in older sibling's shadows and choosing the right "tribe" to surround yourself with. It was fantastic to see Porter step out of those shadows and into the man that I'm sure will make the next book Altercation a riveting read

Mignon Mykel has done an amazing job of making you fall in love with the Prescott Family!

Absolutely love Porter Prescott! He's this funny, cocky guy and underneath all that he's just trying to figure who he really is . I loved seeing Noah and Ryleigh's family and how they all interacted with each other. This was such fun read and introduction to the Playmaker Duet! Mignon Mykel has done an amazing job of bringing this story and series to life and making you fall in love with this family!!

What a beautiful introduction to the character Porter. He is the baby of the Prescott Family (Royalty in the Ice Hockey World). You get a look at his teen years and being a bit of a wild child as the last to leave the flock. In this story I feel you get an accurate picture of a teenage boy that is trying to find his identity as he moves into manhood. His family dynamic is interesting and endearing. Great read that lays the foundation for Playmaker Duet. I highly recommend you read this first bec ...more

Porter Prescott... what can I say. Porter's story is aptly titled Troublemaker. Within the first few pages, you'll completely understand why.

As the youngest his living in everyone's shadow and determined to break free.

Again all the Prescotts make an appearance. Or maybe it's more like a mainstay? Either way, I love how Caleb and Syd are still and till round- as well as all the other siblings.

I thought I loved Caleb (I do) but man... Porter. Sigh.

As this was my first time reading this author, I really wasn't sure what to expect. But, after reading this prequel.....I am so excited to read the actual Playmaker's Duet. This was a great way to introduce the audience to Porter and what he is all about as a person. It will definitely help me to understand him more in future readings. Even though this was a short novella-type reading, I already love the character and can't wait to read more of him in the upcoming books!

This is my first book of the Prescott Family and I already love them. I love a family series, I know I will read all the books. Porter is my favorite of course.

I love him and Mo together but I guest I should like him with Asher, I have just started reading Breakaway so let’s see what happens.

Porter Prescott

Porter is the youngest of five children that were born to Noah and Ryleigh Prescott. This is the prequel to his HEA. We get all the background on him as he finished high school. Can't wait to read more about him.

I liked this novella. Kinda felt bad for Porter, the harder he tried to live up to his family name the more he screwed up. The high school kids in this book had way more sex than I would expect. Makes me want to lock up my teenagers.

Really enjoyed this book and author.

Was really excited to find a new author to read. This book is really good. Love the real world issues and how it's written. Can't wait to jump I to the next one to see what's next for Prescot.

Good start

Great lead-in to the story that follows, but no drama and no surprises. Just bumps along to the end. Well written and table set.

Too choppy

I found that this book bounced around too much. There were short choppy parts all over the book. I'm hoping the next one is better.

This was the first book I read in the Prescott family. This novella was very good. I enjoyed watching Porter grow up and mature. The family dynamic is awesome! I can't wait to pick up the rest of the series!

Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

Troublemaker accomplished exactly what it set out to do. It gave me a glimpse of Porter Prescott's teenage years that lead him to where he is today. This short novella made me understand his thinking and crave the rest of the story. I loved getting to know Porter and can't wait to find out how he connects with the woman he falls for. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of Port

Many thanks to the author for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This story is solely about Porter from age 16 to 18. We were briefly introduced
to him in the first story of the Prescotts.
Porter was always getting into trouble and he wanted to make his own mark
in hockey apart from his illustrious hockey family.Everyone in this family
seems to excel at hockey and being the youngest in the family, you can see
how he feels over shadowed by his siblings.
Enter his friends.

4.5 trouble making stars.

This novella see's the turn of "baby" Prescott aka Porter, it was a light hearted and warming read that you connect to well although Porter is still in school and a typical kid getting into trouble that brings a smile to your face as he works out his own path in life while trying to live up his family's stature.
It is well written and the story flows well throughout as always these novellas leave you wanting so much more and I can't wait for more of Porters story.
