  • 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.

Cover: A really simple yet pretty cover.

I've seen this book around for ages, but never got round to getting it.  Then a friend lent it to me, and I blazed through it.  Loving it so much that I now have to get my own copy so I can part with hers.
I loved that there was a super cute romance between Liam and Amber, that's been brewing since he first comforted her eight years before.  I just wish he hadn't been a man-whore in the beginning.  That's one of my pet- peeves.  I hate it.
It wasn't just cute though, it tackled some serious issues of abuse, and I think it handled them well.
I liked the epilogue.  I'm a sucker for a good epilogue, and I'm finding with a lot of New Adult books that while the ending is sweet and all H.E.A. that sometimes I just don't believe it.  This is not the case with this one.  I found that it was still just as romantic but I bought it.
Sure some times the narrative was a bit silly and repetitive, there were a few grammar errors but I still thoroughly enjoyed it, and could over look them.
Definitely enjoyed this one.  One of the best New Adults I've read so far.
Definitely recommend it for NA fans, of those looking to delve into the genre.
4.5/5 stars.
