    To say that the events that transpired in the novel MISTAKES was terrifying and unspeakably inhumane is a gross understatement As a woman a sister a daughter and an aunt to teenaged girls I cannot even begin to imagine the horrors the characters in this story experiencedThe story revolves around 2 teenaged girls who are best friends one is rich and beautiful and somewhat experienced with the opposite sex and the other who is no so rich sees herself as average and is totally inexperienced with anything having to do with boys  Maddy the no so rich girl is swept off her feet by a charming and handsome twenty something after a night on the town with her wealthy classmates  Although warned that he is the devil in disguise by her BFF Aimee Maddy cannot resist the pull of attraction she feels towards Mr Charming  In an attempt to explore this new and exciting relationship she lies to her parents and joins Mr Charming on vacation in a tropical paradise After one too many drinks she wakes up with a splitting headache with no recollection of the events of the previous night  It doesn't take long for her to figure out that she has been kidnapped and later discovers her captor is the leader of a large human trafficking ring  With little hope of being found Maddy must decide if she want to live to remember the horrors she is sure to experience or if she wants to die before it beginsMISTAKES brings a slew of life lessons to the forefront of the minds of the reader especially in regards to lying and realizing that your parents are trying to protect you when they set boundaries not ruin your life  What is potentially at risk for the innocent and naive oblivious to the evils of the world? I purchased MISTAKES with the hopes of a decent and entertaining read  What I got far exceeded my expectations and I am eagerly awaiting the 2nd book in the trilogy  I can't wait to see what happens next  This is a great choice if you are looking for something dark and intense with some romantic elements✳✳ Reviewed on I ♥ Bookie Nookie ReviewsIf you like this type of book you might enjoy one of these groups Check us outMenage ReadersErotic EnchantsBookie Nookie's Erotic Lending Group

    As a mother of a teenage daughter and a former teenager myself seriously regardless of what my daughter believes I was once a teen I try to teach my daughter about making wise decisions It is clearly a do as I say not as I've done type of teaching as I made huge huge horrible mistakes growing up This book is about mistakes and the conseuences of those split second decisions It started very slow and I was discouraged However about 14 of the way through I really liked the story It had all the right elements for a good book and I was genuinely surprised that I was disappointed that it ended

    I was totally enthralled by this book So much that I got out of bed when I finished reading it and spent the next hour looking for when the second book is supposed to be released Unfortunately I couldn't find any information If you are looking for a book that wraps the story up in a happy ending this isn't your book If you are looking for a dark read that sucks you into the thriller and what will happen next then this is for you

    Book #2 isnt written and book one came out in 2011 Wasted book though good its a cliffhanger with no endingI am giving this book a 1 star rating as I read it and it was a good book 3 stars maybe 35 but as of yet 3years later book two isnt out Therefore it is a wasted reada cliffhanger with no endingand not in a good way

    When I began reading this book I thought it would be a simple tale of two long time best friends Aimee and Maddison Maddie seniors in high school going through growing pains One girl experienced and the second falling in love for the first time The authors began the book with the present day and then take the reader back in time as the two friends are making plans to deceive their parents and head off for spring break on Padre Island As the girls arrive in party town USA they meet up with a male friend from their hometown Making their way through the circuit of parties they end up down a dark beach and things begin to go terribly wrong The three end up kidnapped and taken across the border into Mexico Aimee manages to escape but is forced to leave Maddy behind as she attempts to thwart the kidnappers and go for help Maddie is transferred into a different vehicle where she discovers another body in the trunk with her Fingers touch and a desperate human connection is made as the two await their fate Maddie is locked in a dark cell with Dalton McKenny the second person in the car trunk The two become friends as Dalton forces Maddie to tell stories of her family in an effort to help keep her linked to reality in the darkened cell The two provide each other with the courage it will take if they are to survive their capture The first part of the story ends with Maddie held captive in a crate as she is shipped to an unknown destination while Dalton is ransomed to his family At their point of separation Dalton and Maddie are led to believe that the other is dead The book then shifts from Maddie to Aimee who has managed to elude her kidnappers She is spotted lying dehydrated by the Mexican authorities on a deserted Mexican roadside Life is not easy for Aimee as she struggles to re enter society with the guilt of having left Maddie behind Her upper crust mother sees her ordeal as a stepping stone to a Hollywood career and shows little sympathy toward her daughter or Maddie’s family The book ends with Dalton McKenny showing up on the Turner’s front door stoop with a message from Maddie and a vow to obtain justice Reading on a Kindle has an advantage It takes a little effort to skip to the end of the book as I was tempted to do on many occasions I am one of those who has the horrible habit of reading the first and last chapter and then every word in between The only disappointment I had with this book was as I was nearing the end I realized that either the book was going to have a very fast ending – or I was NOT going to be finding out Maddie’s fate in this book This is fiction that reads like non fiction; and the story might be one of the headlines we read when we pick up the newspaper today The authors pick you up and drop you down right in the middle of the two young lives where you befriend them love them empathize with them and feel their pain and torment and then their loss I laughed and then I cried I was held captive by the words on the pages The only thing I did not like about the book is that the seuel was not already in my hands to read It is driving me crazy and I absolutely sit in anticipation for the next book and truly hope the authors will let me review it This book has love suspense and drama and I am giving it double thumbs up If I had thumbs it would get

    This book grabed me and held me still in my seat till I finied it Page by every page I read I cried I laughed I couldn't stop reading and by the last page I was dying for The topic of this book is about an every day occurrence and a topic I think everyone needs to know about Kidnapping and sex trafficking rings are a hard subject to read about but this book is stunning in the way it is written The CharactersMaddison Maddy She is our main character She is a lot stronger than she thinks she is I connected right away with Maddy she doesn't see herself in the light that everyone else does She doesn't see how much she is loved She see's herself as a girl that always follows the rules and never has any fun But one mistake changes everything for her and things aren't as they seem Aimee Is Maddy's best friend Aimee is the yang to Maddy's Yin so to say She is the polar opposite but the complete each other in their sisterly ways Aimee is the girl who has the money and loves to party unlike Aimee She helps Maddy come up with all the schemes to get Maddy what she really wantsDalton I fell in love with Dalton from the moment he showed up on the pages of the book He is so strong and so sweet to Maddy He is the one that helps her through so much And also gives her a very special gift and Maddy and him share it together trying not to give way to much away Dalton is a very handsome fit young man that is way older than Maddy Jack What can I say about Jack that wont give to much away Hmm there isn't much to say except he is very handsome and Maddy falls for him right away He ends up being Maddy's first love and I will say this when you first fall in love it clouds your vision to the imperfect only showing the perfection of the other personI give the story and the cover a 5 star ratingThe cover fit the book perfectly Love it I was intrigued just by looking at itI can't wait for of this story I need to know what happens next I have never cried so much reading a book in my life but this book is amazing for that To be able to bring those emotions out of a reader makes the writers a pair of great writers

    Pull up a comfy seat get a drink and a box or two of tissues because once you begin reading this story will captivate you and not let you go until the last page forces you to put it downAs they say everyone makes mistakes “we’re only human Some of our mistakes are small like when you stay up late studying for a test that you end up failing anyway because of exhaustion Others are so catastrophic they change your life Forever”Maddison or Maddy to her friends is just an average High School Senior if a little less prone to typical teen rebellion than most eighteen year olds until she meets a guy a gorgeous guy who is really into her and seems to like the very things about her that usually make her a social misfit To make him happy she makes the fateful decision to step way outside of her “box” and sneaks off on Spring Break with her best friend Instead of finding a wild week of fun in the sun the girls find themselves trapped on the road to hell on earthDalton is a successful thirty nine year old executive pursuing international interests for his family’s corporation south of the border and doing his best in a failed marriage When the trip abroad goes terribly wrong it lands him in hell next to an angel costs him his freedom dignity ability to protect himself and worst of all for him renders his attempts at protecting her futile Honest thought provoking and deeply emotional this story will keep you up way past your bed time infect your waking thoughts for days and leave you begging for Not for the faint of heart this highly accessible mature story takes an unflinching look into the life altering journey of these highly appealing characters caught in the all too real web of international human trafficking Maddy and Dalton’s remarkable alliance and tenderly romantic friendship forged under the most soul consuming of circumstances is as bittersweet as it is uplifting Hayward and Holder have created a compelling modern story of love betrayal and self discovery that manages to be as entertaining as it is eye opening

    Mistakes by AM Hayward and LJ Holder is a very shocking thrilling and horrifying story all in one I found myself rushing through the book just to find out what would happen to MaddisonreturnreturnWhen I first started reading this book I strongly suspected that it would be one of those basic YA books where two best friends get drunk and something goes wrong Either one of them dies in a car accident one of them gets pregnant one of them steals etc Mistakes is NOTHING like that I was shocked and moved to tears uickly as the story progresses returnreturnThere was a point in the story where I simply had to stop reading it to find tissues These authors did an amazing job capturing the reality of the situation My heart went out to to Maddie in this bookreturnreturn—spoilers—returnreturnNow what is this book about? It’s about a girl named Maddison who just happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time She is very innocentnaiveimpressionable and she does not think anything wrong when an older rich pretty boy takes uick interest in her Her best friend Aimee who happens to be slightly mature at first suspects that the older guy is using Maddie for sex but when he doesn’t make sexual moves on her best friend she accepts that he has changed his ways They all uickly agree to run of Padre Island for spring break returnreturn—End Spoiler—returnreturnI do not think it is important for me to discuss what actually happens in the book but it is an eye opener and it was not what I was expecting at all I am looking forward to the seuelreturnreturnNow my basic uestion will teens like it?returnreturnI think so I think teens will be shocked while reading it too This novel brings up important topics that need to be discussed The book might be fiction but the subject matter is very realreturnreturnCan be read here

    Oh my This is dark terrifying horrifying But also really good As a firmly middle class girl surrounded by rich kids Maddison has always been an observer but when she meets Jack she wants to start participating She's tired of being restricted by her parents beliefs of what money does to people and she enlists her best friend's help to sneak away for a spring break on Padre Island Things uickly turn for the worst though as Maddison and Aimee are kidnapped to be sold by human traffickersAt the beginning of the book I found myself uestioning things I thought Jack seemed a bit flat as a character and didn't really get the pull Maddison felt for him The kidnappers seemed to make really big mistakes that were uite convenient for the storyline But then Maddison was thrown in a jail cell with Dalton and I forgot all my complaints and just let myself be swept up by the traumatizing story This is no happily ever after and you will be screaming for the second book in the trilogy as soon as you finish the first but this is a book that you don't want to miss Just be ready with a big box of tissues because this is not for the light of heart view spoiler The real devastation for me was in the knowledge that because Dalton thought what he thought the search is going to be very different from what it might have been And vice versa for Maddison I thought that choice was a brilliant choice by the authors but a real sucker punch for the readers I really hope to see a happily ever after at the end of this trilogy; they all deserve it hide spoiler

    I’m pretty sure I’ve never read a book like this I am one to usually read happy fluffy books and the darkest I ever go is vampire and werewolf stories This book was intense I had a hard time with it because it is so real and there was some moments that were hard to readThis book was amazing thoughThe writing was so perfect that I was enthralled the whole time I had to know what was coming next and I had to continue on to know how Maddy was I usually don’t like books where women are abused but this one was something that needed to be read So often we’re uick to ignore things that happen to people because we don’t want to know it Human trafficking is real and this novel made it even so for meThe authors made me love Maddy in the beginning and weaved this warm happy story from the start Everything was good and light and fun and then it wasn’t Things got bad suddenly and though I knew it was coming from reading the synopsis I was not preparedThis book was hard and it will be hard for anyone to get through but it is worth the read It reminded me a lot of the movie Taken but it seemed real to me I was drawn in to this book a lot than I was into that movieThe ending was awful though Ok it actually was pretty brilliant but I have to wait for the next book to see what happens I hate being left in suspense This is definitely a must read but only if you can handle tough situations I wouldn’t recommend this for the faint of heart or weak minded This is an emotional book I cried a lotI can’t wait to get my hands on book two

Mistakes Mistakes #1 Mistakes Everyone makes them We are only human Some of our mistakes are small like the times you stay up till 2 am studying for a test that you end up failing because you are too tired to think Others are so catastrophic that they change your life forever Maddison regrets not listening to her parents not being a 'good girl' and not staying at home like she was supposed to instead of sneaking off with her friends for a Spring Break getaway How she wishes she could turn back time; then maybe she wouldn't be in the nightmare she is in now Kidnapped and taken to a different country unaware of where she is or what these men want with her Maddy's parents can't help her in fact they aren't even aware she is in Mexico Who can save her Or can she save herself
