Mistakes Of My Past

By Emily James



What do you do when your relationship is so damaging that it destroys everything good in your life?

It’s simple, right? You escape – by any means necessary.

Twenty-one-year-old Amber knew that leaving Tommy was going to be hard and quite possible deadly. After all, she has things that he will stop at nothing to get.

When Amber flees England to start fresh with her estranged father in Ohio she starts rebuilding her life.

Will is recovering from his own disastrous relationship, which has left him mistrusting of high maintenance women. And when they meet, Amber seems just that.

Getting off to a rocky start, Amber and Will realise they have more in common than they thought.

Can Amber ever really free herself from the mistakes of her past?

Or are they only ever one short step behind her?

Mistakes of my Past is a stand-alone novel.

It is recommended for readers aged over 18 due to dark, abusive and sexual themes.

My Thoughts:

This book had me hooked from the very beginning.  The Mistakes of my Past had me at the edge of my sit I couldn’t stand putting it down.  This story is a real representation of an abusive relationship.  This story is about more than just an abusive relationship.  It’s about new beginnings, friendship, love and family.  I loved this book and I highly recommend it.

Author Bio:

Emily James is a British author from the south coast of England. She enjoys exploring new destinations, adores animals, particularly dogs, and advocates kindness to all animals and humans.

Before turning her hand to writing, Emily worked as a social worker. This enabled her to gain insight into both the human psych and also the injustices facing everyday people.

Emily enjoys complex romance novels since she believes nothing good ever comes easily. She’s also fond of the saying that patience is a virtue. Having said this, Emily is not what you might call patient or virtuous! Stubborn and tenacious is perhaps more fitting.

Mistakes of My Past is Emily’s debut novel. Her blood, sweat and tears went into this story and she sincerely hopes that you lovely readers out there enjoy reading it!

Emily loves chewing the fat with readers.

Please feel free to hit her up on Facebook, email or twitter.
