My thoughts

This was a wonderfully written short story which is a part of the Prescott Family; Playmaker Duet Series.
Asher’s story is tragic and heartbreaking, and once she finally gets out on her own, she’s able to start to take control of her own life.
Asher’s journey is just starting, but it was great to see that she was able to connect with good people right away and learn to trust herself and others.
Asher’s problem is that she doubts that good people exist, and want to help her without expecting anything in return.
Her adventure with the Prescott family is just beginning, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!


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,
the monsters,
the ghosts,
far, far behind.

I just can’t break beforehand.

Author’s Note: This novelette contains dark elements that some readers may be sensitive to. This is a story of a seventeen year old girl who wasn’t handed the easiest of cards and is an important piece in understanding her thoughts and actions in the Playmaker Duet, however, readers should be able to read the duet without reading this piece prior. Due to content, this book is recommended for readers 18+

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 players, Caleb and Jonny Prescott.

I have two years to make a name for myself.

Be prepared.
Porter Prescott is coming your way.

*Authors note: This book does include mature themes and is intended for readers 18 and older.

This book also is that of a sixteen year old Porter Prescott; it does not include a happily ever after, nor a happy for now.
