Today marks Day 19 of 31 Days of #BookLove. Rather than review all 300 books I’ve read this year, I decided to share one of my favorites each day this month.
THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW by Kirsty Moseley
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Amber Walker and her older brother, Jake, have an abusive father. One night her brother’s best friend, Liam, sees her crying and climbs through her bedroom window to comfort her. That one action sparks a love/hate relationship that spans over the next eight years. Liam is now a confident, flirty player who has never had a girlfriend before. Amber is still emotionally scarred from the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father. Together they make an unlikely pair. Their relationship has always been a rocky one, but what happens when Amber starts to view her brother’s best friend a little differently? And how will her brother, who has always been a little overprotective, react when he finds out that the pair are growing closer? Find out in The Boy Who Sneaks In My Bedroom Window.
What I Liked:
Amber is wary around boys – except for her brother’s best friend Liam. Liam sleeps in her bed every night to keep the nightmares at bay. The funny thing about their arrangement? Neither of them talk about it in the morning, and they mostly act like they hate each other. This might seem like it doesn’t work, but Moseley builds characters that are believable and real for all their faults. The story wasn’t perfect (Amber’s reaction to the bet didn’t seem true to her character), BUT that didn’t hold back my enjoyment. I especially loved seeing Liam’s character develop as revelations are made, and I appreciated Amber discovering her own strength.
