The first night Liam James sneaked to Amber Walker's room was when he was 10 and she was 8. Amber was crying after she and her older brother Jake was beaten by their abusive father. Liam just held her close until she calmed down. Since then, it became Liam's habit to sneak to Amber's room every night as they sleep together. Literally sleep. Liam is the only one to calm Amber every time she's having a panic attack, and he's the only one to keep her nightmares away.
But outside the bedroom, Liam is the jerk bestfriend of her over protective brother. But when Liam started being the sweet guy she knew at night, Amber is starting to think of him more than just her older brother's bestfriend. But with a past that Amber seems impossible to move on to and an over protective brother, Amber and Liam needs to prove that what they feel for each other is real love.
When I was younger, I used to daydream of falling in love with my older brother's best friend. But my brother is over protective and everything so the bestfriend would do everything to prove his love for me. But that remains as a fantasy, since I don't have an older brother, neither a younger one. Haha! Reading this is like my daydreams have come to life and put into words. So yes! I totally enjoyed this story.
Amber has a very strong character and it's really entertaining to read her thoughts. She has her own identity, though at some point, when she and Liam are already a couple, I feel like she's changing into this flirty girlfriend. Liam on the other hand is the total next door hottie! Who could be better for Amber but one of the person she totally trust and the only person who knows how to calm her down and keeps her nightmares away. And being a gentleman is super plus points! Alternating POV between Liam and Amber at the last half of the story gave me a better picture, I just wished the alternating POV started right from the start. Then, I would know exactly how Liam feels all this time :)
Another good thing about this story is that it did not revolved solely on Liam and Amber's love story. It's the majority of it, but the side stories supports the couple really well. The past of Liam and Amber, their father and of course, Jake's character. Everything, until the minor details complement the love story. :)
