Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


I was totally on the edge of my seat, biting my nails with how the plot was going to play out in this dark, kidnapping book. It was a twisted, wild ride.

Liam is a man who walks in a morally gray world. While he recently made the switch to work for Angel as a mercenary, he would not call himself a good guy. When he makes a rash decision to kidnap Raya he never thought through the ramifications of who she was or what it would do to his life, he just snapped, but it didn’t take long to realize that even if it ruined his life, he would never regret a moment of it.

Mistakes Made was hot on a completely different level and the relationship that developed between Liam and Raya was also something that developed on an intense level, but completely different than I was expecting. I enjoyed that surprise more that I thought I would.

Raya originally began the book a complete shell of a woman, a puppet in her father’s world, and honestly I wasn’t a real fan, but by the end of the book, I loved the woman she became and this character development is not only what held me, but made me fan of this couple.

Mistakes Made is a wild ride from start to finish and I really had no idea how it was going to end. This entire series has had me off kilter, which I love, and I’m looking forward to each new story and what new twist is brought to the forefront.

The worst thing you can ever do is make an assumption about me, despite my job resting solely on making people think I’m someone I’m not.
I know that makes me crazy, narcissistic, and a little out of touch with the reality of how the world works.
I’ll never argue that fact with anyone.
Maybe it was the hundred-degree Texas weather.
Maybe it was overstimulation from the crowds at the beach.
Maybe it was one of a million other things that irritated me that day.
But when Raya Reed looked me up and down, finding me lacking on some scale I’m sure no man in her life would ever live up to, I snapped.
It wasn’t until she was tied up in my house that I discovered she was Senator Thomas Reed’s daughter.
A normal person would let her go.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my past, but making Raya MINE will never be one of them.
