Liam James, boy next door and total douchebag, is my brother’s best friend. I can’t stand him. Well, that’s not strictly true, at night I see a side of him that no one else does. Every night Liam becomes my safe haven, my protector, the one to chase the demons of my abusive childhood away and hold all the broken pieces of me together.

He’s cocky, he’s arrogant, and he’s als

Warning: This is more of an angry and frustrated rant than a proper review. Forewarned is forearmed.

Initial reaction after reading the book

What the hell did I just read? It has to be the crappiest, silliest, the most pathetic book I've EVER read. Urgh! It was like reading the diary entry of a 12 year old teenager obsessesd with her boyfriend, with no fucking priorities at all.

Oh, and just look at the average rating-4.11 Four point fucking one? Seriously people? Why would anyone even bother compl

This book is terrible. Absolutely terrible. I had a really long review written which included lots of quotes to back up my opinion, but then my power went out and I lost it (THANKS TROPICAL STORM ISAAC!). I'm re-writing most of it, but I don't feel like digging around my Kindle to get the quotes again. Sorry!

Like I said, this book is terrible. The plot is terrible. The characters are terrible. The writing is terrible. The editing is REALLY terribl

A list of some of the reasons why I, not disliked, not hated, but despised this trash of a novel:

Painful grammatical errors sprinkled all throughout (because who needs a BETA reader, right?)

Countless repetitions dripping with mozzarella (á la "It's always been you, Angel" "I love you, no I love you more, Angel!" and more cheesy bullshit along that vein. Between this and T

Almost 4 stars... maybe 3.5 :S

"It's always been you; it'll always be you, Angel."

My goodness I felt torn about how to rate this book. There were literally times where I was grinning, and awww-ing and proclaiming my whole-hearted love for the book... but then, there were times where I'd cringe, roll my eyes or want to throttle the characters. I kept going back and forth between 2.5 and 4.5 stars. It was a tough call because the good parts were reeeeally heart-meltingly good but the inconsiste

Some books are meant to teach us lesson. Some, to give us information. Others, to provide entertainment. After reading The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window , I thought "Where do we put this horrible book?" Because it is neither of the three.

Well, okay. It might provide entertainment for those who seek for this kind of story. But to me it's a big no no. This was a horrible and infuriating read. Kind of insulting to the female and male population who were looked up to be slut and man-whore b

What a gorgeous gorgeous book!!! I started reading it in the afternoon and refused to go to sleep until it was finished. I’d like to think that I’m over books set in high school but this book proved me wrong. It had me wrapped around its sweet little ‘fingers’ from beginning to end and I think it had everything to do with the loveable characters. I was looking for an angst-free read and, for most of the book, that is exactly what I got.

The story centres on three characters - Amber, her brother J

”Could this boy be any more perfect?”


This story had a lot of things that were far-fetched but it also had Liam James, a swoon-worthy hero that had me reading on, even though at times I was rolling my eyes. It just goes to show you a great male lead can sometimes save a story.

The premise of the story is quite simple, Amber and her big brother Jake have been suffering physical, and on her part sexual abuse at the hands of their father. Amber’s brother’s best friend, Liam lives n

Amber and her brother Jake have suffered severe abuse from their father since they were children. One night, when Amber was 8, she cried in her room until 10-year-old Liam, the boy next door and Jake's best friend, came in through her window to comfort her. They fell asleep together and their night was much better - so it went on for years, without anyone knowing... 😍💙

Now, Amber is 16 and Liam is 18 - and he's a player and a 'man-whore', but at night he always comes back to her bed, to prote

I am at a complete loss here. And in more ways than one. Goodreads reviews rarely let me down. So when I saw that this book had 4+ rating I was totally on board.
You lie. People of Goodreads. You lie, and you lied good.

The book had a lot of potential. I really liked the idea of after a traumatic life, Ambers neighbor has been coming in and sleeping with her every night. The thought sweet. The story poorly executed.

I need to google this author and find out if the name is a pen name for a 15 year
Let me just start off by saying that the max rating this book could have gotten out of me was 4 stars. It lost 1 star automatically for all the grammatical errors (and believe me, there were plenty). I’ve tried to hide all spoilers but a few may have leaked through in the review.

The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window sounded so promising to me. A brother and sister are abused by their father. Brother’s best friend sees the sister crying in her bedroom one night when they are young and he climbs

Okay, I feel like I'm committing a crime by giving this story a one star. So, before I get to reviewing this book, I'd like to point out that I'm familiar with this author on wattpad, and am quite fond of her writing style with her other books on wattpad, and a fan. But this particular book didn't do it for me, it felt amateur at best.

I could deal with grammar errors because Hey! Everyone's human. I think reading on wattpad has prepared me to be completely oblivious (selectively so) when it com

First up, let me say that i read the Wattpad version of this story by Kirsty and i was BLOWN AWAY!!!! Just the type of YA romance that i love! I'm off to Smashwords to buy the edited version of this story but i don't think that it could get any better! A real 5 star read (in my opinion)!! Anyone that enjoys a good YA romance NEEDS to get this!!! When i read the version that Kirsty has published (which is now up on Amazon and Smashwords), i'll leave a proper review!

I read the wattpad version and seriously I don't understand why it have so many good reviews. The book was so bad it was like reading a bad fanfiction written by a 13 years old. The beginning was OK, but then the author keeps adding more and more crap...

The writing style is so amature, the plot isn't structured, the actual setting is confusing due to mix of british and american vocab.

Holy roller coaster!

Liam was fantastic. FANTASTIC!! There was so much lovey dovey stuff (my favorite) so I was swooning and sighing constantly.

Fyi to the younger crowd, there was quite a bit of language and sex 'stuff', but I really enjoyed it. Some parts were definitely hard to read because they were very heartwrenching and upsetting, but real.

Buy this book. All I'm saying.

It was unrealistic and annoying. I just had to put it down and read it some other time. Yet, I still manage to finish it though I'm on the verge to give it up by 50%.

Original review can be found on Read Runner.

I read this book because the synopsis seemed intriguing: Amber and her brother Jake grew up with an abusive father. Years after their father left, Amber is still dealing with the effects of her trauma. Part of her support system is her brother’s best friend, Liam, who comforted her years ago and continues to comfort her nightly.

Unfortunately, the synopsis was so far from reality. I was stunned at how a book marketed as a YA novel had so many sexual ref
VERY low 3 stars

That said, and call me crazy, but I still liked this book. A lot. I would classify it as a B-movie that you simply love.

The story captivated me from the start, it had full beaming promise, I loved the idea of the next door neighbour sweet and loving at night, bad boy meanie by day.

It had highlights for me, book fillers that were enjoyable - friendship, loyalty, heart thumping love, teenage angst and set in American High school, with lots of drama (which I love). The book did also boast a very likeable book boyfriend in the lovely Liam, he alone deserves a star.
