I read this book for the first time when it was still on Wattpad back in 2012. I love Kirsty Moseley. She is a fantastic author and I will always follow her because she is great. When I found out TBWSIMBW was on sale for only .99 cents, I knew I had to buy it so I 1-clicked it and started reading immediately. The reason why I got it was because I remembered this book would put me in a good mood when I would read it before (I read it like 3 times). I wasn’t having a good night so I bought this, knowing it would lighten up my mood and that’s what it did.
Amber and Liam have known each other since Amber was 4 and Liam was 6. Amber had an abusive father and Liam knew about it. One night, he sneaked in Amber’s window and lied down with her on her bed and both fell asleep. This happened for two weeks straight and they both realized they needed each other in order to sleep through the night. Now Amber is 16 and Liam is 18 and their nightly routine hasn’t stopped. Even though they are sweet to one another at night, by day time, all they do is annoy one another. Amber only sees Liam as her brother’s best friend but Liam has always loved his Angel. (If you want to know the amazing story of why Liam calls Amber Angel, you have to read the story.)
I love this story. The characters aren’t annoying, which I love. Most of the characters have their funny moments and serious moments so there’s a balance. The plot is engaging—the story keeps you wanting to keep reading until the end. I had forgotten why Liam calls Amber “Angel” and when I got to that part of the story, I started awww’ing a lot and got reminded of why I love this story so much. I know some readers say that Amber gave it (sex) up too soon to Liam, but in my mind, she didn’t. Yes, she had been abused by her father and wouldn’t let anyone touch her, but as she mentioned, the only people she felt comfortable with touching her are her brother, her mom and Liam. And even then, she would stop Liam a bunch of times before they actually went all the way.
I love stories that have a player in it that falls in love but there aren’t many stories out there that are good in this area…they really suck. It’s hard to find a player story that is done well and Kirsty did it eloquently. I fell once more for the characters.
