Review: The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window by Kirsty Moseley

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.

Phee phi pho phuck!! I have absolutely no idea how to review this book! What I'm about to say may totally confuse you (hell, it totally confused me). There is no black or white! I need you to suit up my peoples and join me on a little vacation into the grey area. 

Your love of this book is going to be totally dependent on your ability to overlook flaws. Flaws in the form of some pretty cheesy dialogue (though not the entire time), a rocky execution, and some unbelievable situations. For me, I adored the concept and found the pulse of the story strong enough to say the hell with it all!!  For example, there is no way a sixteen year old could discharge herself from the hospital, but the last time I checked this is called fiction! As in FICTION so you can write anything you frickin want! The parentless situations are pretty unbelievable and most of the time you'll be screaming, "Where the hell are all the adults?', but the author makes it work for and with the story.

The story has some okay bits, some good bits, some really good bits, and even some naughty bits (quite a few actually)!! Well hello there YA-MATURE!!!! The bumpy execution (mainly the dialogue) is the only reason I almost didn't give it four stars. However, I almost gave it five stars just for having a story that's so kick ass that it overrode everything that I thought was wrong with it!

It's loaded with action, HOT-I-need-a-shower  romance and extreme situations!! I read it straight through from start to finish; even going back and reading some of my favorite bits! OH...It also has one of my favorite things, "I've loved you for forever" romance!!! The reason that my finger hovered over the three star button for so long is because this story is kind of a gamble. Even though I loved it, I'm really not sure what everyone else is going to think! The uncertainty is killing me! I'm use to being right ALL THE TIME, but right now I just don't know! It's going to come down to your ability to let the good overshadow the bad! It is an amazing concept and a totally unique plot and I feel it's worth the read. Plus, for a YA book it's kinda WOW!! 

So...after all the indecisiveness, I have decided that I really liked The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window and have decided to give it my stamp of approval! It didn't earn a spot on my favorites shelf, but it definitely earned a spot on my I'm so glad I read it shelf! READ ON MY PEOPLE!!!
