Mistakes (Mistakes Trilogy, #1) - A.M. Hayward,  L.J. Holder 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 experienced.

The 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 begins.

MISTAKES 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.
