Release Date: August 8, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Hockey’s most eligible bachelor must run interference to get the one girl he can’t have.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Interference was my first book from Mignon Mykel, so I had no idea what to expect from the storyline. As a romance unfolded, I got nervous because I fell in love with this couple and there were so many possibilities of where Mignon could take them. The suspense heightened my reading experience and left me devouring every single page until the very end.
Sydney is just about ready to graduate from college and she has been working various internships to figure out what exactly she wants to do when she grows up. Her latest job finds her in the position to recruit a male athlete for a dating reality show on a cruise boat. She doesn’t know anything about Caleb but she throws all of her energy and efforts behind getting him to agree to do the show.
Caleb has absolutely no desire to be on a dating show – in fact he finds the idea of falling love in less than a month absolutely ridiculous. However, he’s quite smitten with the redheaded pixie who came to convince him to do the show so he unwittingly agrees to do it but he has some of his own terms.
Those terms being that the producers arrange for Sydney to spend a week on the cruise boat with him before the filming of the show starts. Their time together was romantic and sweet – it definitely leaves your heart swooning but the real excitement and drama of the book starts once the filming for the show starts because Sydney leaves Caleb with 20 tempting women who all want to steal Caleb’s heart.
Questions swirled in my mind like crazy. Would he meet someone else? Could Sydney keep his attention after thirty days surrounded by women who are all hand-picked for him?! Would there be misunderstandings?!! And how would Sydney handle not knowing what was going on with Caleb and all of those women??
The end result was a fun, sexy and highly entertaining book. I loved how the author had everything play out and Interference has put her on the map for me. Definitely check this book out and add Mignon Mykel on your must read author list.
