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

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.

Great s

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

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.

Great Read!

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!

Original review: A Novel Glimpse

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.
Just like a teenager st

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.

Porter finally gets the start of his story. Trouble Maker is a short novella that sets up Porter in his late high school years. There's a lot of insight on how he feels about living in his familiy's shadow and his need to make his own name for himself. Of course he goes through some tough days like all teens do but it's all about growing up and moments that shape you. I can't wait for Porter's story to continue.

ARC for honest opinion. I enjoy reading Mignon's books and this one is no exception
Part of the Prescott hockey family series. This book is the
Pre-quel to Porter's story. Getting to know what was on his mind during his teenage years and why he was getting into so much trouble. Interacting a bit more with the rest of the family.

Baby Brother Prescott!

Continuing the story of Porter Prescott, the troublemaker is a nice breath of air. A short novella that told the prequel of Porter's life before he meets Asher. An awesome read and I'm totally in love with the Prescott boys!
