Synopsis: 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.

4.5 Stars 
Interference is the story of Sydney and Caleb.  It was my first time reading anything by Mignon Mykel, and its definitely a 4.5 star read for me. I'm a sucker for a romance with a sports star as the hero, which is what originally drew me to this book.  In saying that I am not a fan of books based around reality tv shows.  I was pleasantly surprised that there was so much more to Sydney and Caleb's story and the focus was not on the reality show.  Overall this is a sweet, heartwarming romance that you won't regret picking up!

Wow these characters are complex and endearing.  Caleb is your ultimate book boyfriend, he is complete package, a swoon worthy, sexy, sweet, thoughtful and caring, family orientated man.  A NHL hockey player, with a successful career, whilst Sydney is a college student trying to break into her career.  Sydney is sweet, and confident a bit of a perfectionist and overachiever with a few insecurities that make her all the more relate-able.  Their witty banter, friendship, chemistry and steamy love scenes had me going through a range of emotions, laughing out loud and smiling as I read along with their story, and also tears welling in my eyes.   I loved that their story was told from dual point of view, giving us an insight into both their feelings and thoughts. 

I read this book in one sitting.  It's incredibly well written and well paced, slightly on the faster side and I couldn't put it down.  I loved the family dynamic and closeness to both their siblings that both the hero and heroine share with their respective families.  I look forward to reading more of the Prescott family and can't wait for Caleb's siblings to get their stories told.

Synopsis: Before the Prescott name became big in the hockey world, there was just Noah Prescott, fighting for a spot on an NHL roster. Never did he imagine a simple note from a shy fan would speed up his world.
Ryleigh Scott had an issue talking to men, but she knew she couldn't pass up the opportunity to talk to Noah -- potentially negative labels, be damned. Never did she imagine a simple note would start what could only be described as the beginning of the rest of her life.
This is Noah and Ryleigh -- before the NHL contract, before the kids, before going back home.
This is Noah and Ryleigh from the beginning.


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.
