The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window
by Kirsty Moseley
Kindle Edition, 242 pages
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?
I am sorry to disappoint the majority who seemed to like this book. But I have to be honest here. I wasn’t at all satisfied with the story.
Right from the start, Amber was like a time bomb waiting to explode. She grew up hating her father who had molested her, but instead of being wary of guys and for always telling herself that she hated being touched, why the f*** did she allow her neighbor-friend guy Liam to sneak in her bedroom window, every night, for the past 8 years, straight?!
I mean, come on! Amber should have been scarred and afraid of being touched after what her dad did to her.. I thought she should have been afraid of everything, because of her past. She shouldn’t be comfortable enough to be sexually touched like that and then walk around in slutty clothes. It just doesn’t add up. It was going nowhere for me, its a complete and utter drivel.
Now tell me, isn’t that a little f***ed up? I think the whole Liam-Amber vibe is so pretentious. If it weren’t for Jake’s concern for the well-being of her sister, I wouldn’t have finished reading this book. 😦 And I hate DNFing a book. So a point goes out to Jake for making this book a little bearable.
