Synopsis: Before the Prescott family 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.


My Musings : 

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

The book is appropriately named. The story shows the beginning of Noah Prescott's family. It shows the love story of Noah and Ryleigh, how they met and how they fell in love with each other. The prologue increased my interest in reading Noah's story and I have to say that I loved the tale. 

Ryleigh seems shy at times and feisty in turns. Noah is kind of a jerk at times but he can be sweet too. The struggle between them was realistic and had me cheering for both of them. At times I was itching to smack them. They did irk me sometimes with their actions and reactions but it was intrinsic to their relationship. The other characters especially Noah's mates added the necessary lightness and charm in certain scenes. I liked Jason inspite of his negative impact in this tale. He seemed to be the right person to goad Noah into action. 

The story was told well in alternating points of view. It didn't leave anything to be guessed. The feelings and thoughts of Noah and Ryleigh were out there for me to enjoy. The flow of the tale was good, neither too slow nor too fast. It went at a medium pace with the scenes flowing seamlessly into each other. This book has only whetted my appetite for the first book in the series. I am sure the books in the series will be as entertaining as this one! 

My rating : 4/5

Mignon Mykel
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.
