Publisher's Summary

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?

Semi YA/adult romance with dark undertone

The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window is a love story held by an undertone of darkness. This is not a typical high school romance. Please don't misunderstand the book does have a really sweet love story, but it's so much more than that. This book will drag some strong emotions out of you. It dives into some really uncomfortable & devastating subject matter. This story follows Amber, a teenager who suffered severe child abuse when she was young. When she was eight years old, Liam saw Amber crying and sneaked into her bedroom to comfort her. Liam is the neighbor boy & Amber's brothers best friend. After that night, Liam has constantly been sneaking into Amber's bedroom to sleep with her. The story follows the relationship between the two love birds and how Amber struggle to fight her past demons. Anyway, good story, good characters and recommended to all semi-YA/adult readers who enjoy a little heartache mixed with their romance.

Wow... so much better than I expected!

I loved this book. From the start it is a little tough to listen to as it starts out with eight year old Amber and her ten year old brother Jake, revealing the horor of the abuse they suffered via their very Loathsome father. But once chapter two came I was hooked. The love story between Amber and Liam is so sweet and sexy I was shocked, especially with this type of book. But Liam is really the most praise-worthy boyfriend their is, and I do agree with another reviewer... so much so that it must be fiction. I didn't care though, . Amber is a little clueless at times and naive , but she is only sixteen, so I didn't have much reservations with her flaws. Seriously though, although there were indeed dark elements to this story, the love story was the best part of this book for me. Another pleasant factor in this book, is that there is no explicit sex scenes as in so many of the YA novels nowadays. The narators did a fantastic job. I think this writer shows good promise, though I wasn't blown away with the riting in a whole. All and all I can't wait to see another of Kursty Moseley's books on Audible. Definitely credit worthy if you like this type of story.

Liam is so perfect, it must be fiction ...

The story is completely romantic... Liam is the absolute perfect boy friend that Amanda needs. Some of the writing was hard to believe and predictable. All the characters were great, just the story lines need to be developed more.

I am so happy I downloaded the audio version rather than buy the ebook as Leah Mallach and Sean Crisden brought the characters to life and made you completely invested in what happened to each of them. Without that the book would not have been so entertaining.

Where do I begin?

I'm really conflicted about the audiobook, I like the premise of the story... Well I like the story, it's well written and the dialog was fine. I just had a serious disconnect with the age of the characters in this book. If the characters were 26 and 28 instead of 16 and 18, I probably would have enjoyed the story much more, their young age just kept rolling around in the back of my mind, and I'd find myself cringing at the very adult situations they were put in and no parental supervision what so ever! Jeesh!

YA TO THE CORE

I became interested in this book as a result of the glowingly high recommendations it has received on various blog sites. I have to admit, my expectations were through the roof by the time the release date rolled around. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a mistake on my part. The premise had me all geared up for a heart tugging struggle to connect emotionally after surviving an abusive home. I ended up feeling a little cheated, I mean life struggle generally matures people… doesn't it? I suppose I’m trying to say it was almost "too" YA in context for me to really enjoy. Seriously, there's a lot of skipping. Tough angry older brothers should NOT be skipping anywhere. Several phrases were over used to the point that midway through I had the absurd impulse to keep a tally as if there were a word use contest going on. I mention these little nit-picky specifics, because when you combine them they somehow manage to noticeably detract from the story. Let me be clear, for a self-publish author this book was very very well done. Though it showed up late in the story, I was totally into the Liam insight as the alternate male perspective. The performance makes it worth the credit. For me at least, it only makes the one-time listen list.

Needs work

The idea of this story is good but the author needs work. The story is painful to listen to at times. There was a lot of repeated statements and major mistakes in things said. I could tell the person who wrote this was from the UK but set it in the US. The author clearly didn't know how things work in the US when it comes to assault and child abuse. I finished the book just because I can't stand not to unless the narrator is terrible. This book could have been good if there was an editor that knew what they were doing, maybe one from the US so they could have explained child abuse laws and rules in the US. Also no relationship is as prefect as the one in this book and no guy is that prefect either. I'm just glad it was in the Romance package or I would of had to ask for my credit back.

Young Adult book for sure!

I kept reading so much about this book and decided to listen. I was VERY disappointed. This was more Young Adult, and no steam. The sex was fade to black because this is YA which was okay had I known before reading. Personally, not worth a credit unless it's for YA material. Disappointed in adults (parents) in the book. Spoiler (look away now): How is it no charges ever pressed, really? NO, not worth it even for YA (due to lack of adult decisions). Amber was so timid but braves it at the end. No way!

Not Your Light Hearted Romance Novel

What did you like best about The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window? What did you like least?

My favorite thing about this book is the relationship between Amber and Liam. Least favorite was the switching of narrators. I actually laughed out loud at the less than stellar performance by the male narrator when he was doing female voices. It also made me cringe when he read some of the book in Liam's perspective.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I think keeping just one narrator would have been better. Also, this book needed some editing. I enjoyed the romance between Amber and Liam, but with the darkness this story had going on it was written pretty immaturely.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, the pace matched for the most part.

Do you think The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, this book does not need a follow- up. I felt it wrapped itself up pretty nicely.

I feel awful

I can’t believe I am rating this story so badly, but let’s be honest guys, the rating it has is a lie. I always finish books, but wish I woulda stopped while I was ahead. I felt the voices were all wrong for the characters, if you are going to have a bad ass hero and you give him a super soft male voice, you pretty much missed the mark. I felt this plot had potential and it badly let me down.

Great Listen

I've read this book many times over the years so was looking forward to listening to the audio version and wasn't disappointed.

Sean Crisden & Leah Mallach did a great job of bringing the story to life and were exactly how I imagine Amber and Liam.

This is definitely going on my re-listen list. :)

A sweet love story

This was a good audio just not amazing the relationships were sweet but I just like something a little darker (that's just me and my sick mind I guess) I did enjoy it but was not the story I thought it would be.

Lovely romance

The topic was quite gritty and could be a trigger for anyone that has suffered abuse at home. I have read some of Kirstys books and enjoyed them so I had high expectations with this and I wasn't disappointed.
The life long romance was just beautiful. The story was refreshingly different in that the couple was strong and it was outside influences that caused the drama. It can be quite tedious to listen and read many romances where the couple have a huge misunderstanding break up then get back together bla, bla, bla...
The characters in this were level headed and so likeable.
Narrated very well, Leah has a fabulous voice to listen to, I'd say she's my favourite narrator thus far and I've listened to over 100 books this year so far.

Amazing

A lovingly told story that keeps the awesomeness of this story intact. If you love stories that are full of suspense, romance and ones that make you feel everything, then this is for you.
