Book Review of Mistakes of My Past: Escape is Just the Beginning by Emily James

Mistakes of My Past: Escape is Just the Beginning by Emily James 
Genre: Adult Fiction(Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: December 8, 2016
Publisher: Self

What do you do when your relationship destroys everything good in your life? 
It’s simple, right? You escape - by any means necessary. 

Amber knew that leaving Tommy was going to be hard and quite possibly 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 the process of rebuilding her life. 

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

Getting off to a rocky start, Amber and Will soon 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? 

The Mistakes of my Past is a stand-alone novel. 
It is only recommended for readers aged over 18 due to dark, abusive and sexual themes. 

Mistakes of My Past: Escape is Just the Beginning was an extremely gripping debut novel by Emily James. Tommy showed all the classic abuse signs, and poor Amber was sucked right into the pattern. After the death of her mother, she leaves England for the US with her father. Yes, she's running away from Tommy, but in her state of mind she really had to. I don't think she could have saved herself at that point, in fact she tried to do just the opposite. In the US she gets the help she needs, and makes friends. I loved watching her character transform, even though I yelled at her quite a bit for not fixing the 'loose ends' with Tommy. They really needed to be tied up, and she kept letting them go. I loved Will, Cody was completely adorable, and Roxy was a total hoot. These were some of the best (and most amusing)supporting characters. I loved Roxy's lipstick messages. Amber needed these people, and they really needed her too. I was pulled right into their lives while I read. There was some humor, romance, and even suspense.. a lil bit of everything.

Mistakes of My Past: Escape is Just the Beginning by Emily James was kindly provided to me by Bloggers From Down Under for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my review of another book by this author.

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.
