"Sometime I feel like there's a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean.... I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing... I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for." Quote from Practical Magic. I know probably wondering why on earth I would post a quote from a movie for a review. Well I finished this book, and this was immediately stuck in my head. Amber and Liam are this love that time will lie down for. This is young adult novel, but it is so incredible deep that all ages will love it. This is not your first love story, but rather a TRUE LOVE STORY! I was blown away by this carefully and intricately crafted story that flows through these pages. The hidden meaning and deep emotion wrapped around every thought and action is incredible. Even for Liam being the neighbor; after climbing into Amber's bed the first time he had agreed to share her life. Even at the age of ten he was devoted to her accepting all of the pain and torture of abuse was not her's alone, but theirs to share. Which unfolded into a story of hope and love, and the proof that people really can overcome their pasts. I was awed, but the obvious talented displayed in Moseley's writing. Jake, Liam, and Amber are all very close; so effectively writing a story that consistently carries them all was difficult, but this incredibly talented woman did it. Not only did she do it, but she perfected it! Not once did I feel a shift amongst the characters. Leaving readers concerned by every development in the book, and how it will effect everyone involved. What I had expected to be primarily a love story ended up being so much more. It almost carries story within a story, within a story feel to this book. Amber and Liam will struggle obstacles one after another. Although, the climatic ending is an obstacle that they all will share. I felt that this tied the story up so effectively. At first, it gave Liam and Amber time to grow with their problems, but bring them all back together in the ending seems to only enforce the bonds shown throughout the story. Almost like making a final statement that they are a unit, and that is the way they will remain. I loved every single minute of this story, and can not even being to do this story the justice in words. It is incredible and inspiring... BookWhisperer Favorite!!!

This book was nothing like I thought it would be. The description doesn't do this book justice. The book begins with an eight year old girl named Amber and her ten year old brother Jake living in fear of their father's wrath. They are beaten continuously by their father and Amber is subjected to more then just her father's fists. Liam the boy next door as well as Jake's best friend sees Amber crying in her room and decides to comfort her by sneaking into her bedroom. He falls asleep with her which leads to an eight year habit. The book skips forward to a 16 year old Amber that has been mentally scarred by her father's extra attention. When she was 15, Jake and Liam discovered their father trying to rape her after almost beating her to death. They take matters in to their own hands and make him leave for good. Amber hates to be touched by anyone because memories come flooding back. Liam is one of the best male character's I have ever read about. In the begginning Amber merely looks at him as her brother's man-whore cocky best friend but slowly starts to see him in a different light. She sees him in two different ways daytime Liam who is cocky and a man-whore and then there is nighttime Liam who is sweet and loving. Nighttime Liam chases away her demons and makes her feel complete. Amber starts to realize that her feelings for Liam are more then friendship, which gives Liam the go ahead to finally be with the girl that he has been in love with since he was a child. He calls her his Angel because he believes that god must have put her there just for him. This story is a must read for anyone that hasn't read it. Liam and Amber stole my heart.

I was excited to read this book and I was expecting to enjoy it. I don't have extremely high standards for book. I normally read them to pass time and for entertainment. My last novel was The DUFF and I enjoyed it. But this book started of decent (not even good) and then it dragged on forever. And then I hated it. I could care less about the grammar but I guess what really got me was the tone and the repetition. There was a lot of repetition and childish phrases ("I really am the luckiest girl in the world" was the last phrase in the novel). The protagonists’ personality was very inconsistent. One moment she was like a little girl and the next she was super sexy. One moment she was scared and then next she was okay. I thought it was nice the author made the character believable by making her immature but next thing you know she makes her seem super experienced and not immature. So things that worked for the novel were then killed by the author. It seemed like I was reading a teenage girl's diary or fanfiction. It really really reaaaallly read like a fanfiction. The everyday details of the protagonist's life were shared in a straightforward fanfiction-like manner. This with the overblown drama, repetition and stupid decisions the characters made were annoying. The ending is a 5 year time skip epilogue and the protagonist is still speaking like she was 16 (when she is now 21). If you were abused like that and live on your own in a big city with you bf, you will probably mature. But Amber did not. The character of Amber really never got any consistency what so ever. And the gimmick of the story "guy in her bed who is a bad boy but sweet" got old fast. Liam (the guy) was sweet and his pov was shared which was cute but I guess the other 85% percent of the novel with Amber (the girl) suffocated the novel. It really was like a too long fanfiction. :( Everything seemed too unlikey even for fiction. And a good tone was missing. These things, even for my low standards, didn’t let me enjoy the novel. Too bad.

Before I say anything else let me just say that I love Liam! Ok, now on to my review. I really liked the story line of this book. I can understand why some people thought it was unrealistic because of the depth of the story and the ages of the characters. In my opinion though it worked. There are a lot of teenagers who are forced to grow up at a young age, therefore they are capable of having adult relationships and feelings; even though they are in their teens. My only negative comment about this book would be the grammer. There are several words that are misspelled, words in sentences that just don't make since, and some words left out that would have made the sentence flow better. As long as you are not one to nit pick at that kind of thing I would definitely recommend this book. Although, if you have ever had to deal with abuse or things to that nature please use caution going in, as it could cause flashbacks.

okay so I really wanted to like her books but I gave them only two stars for these reasons. First off both of her books are the same story with different characters...boy and girl grow up next door to each other, sleep in the same bed with no sex until one day the girl opens her eyes and realizes she's head over heels for boy and then they can't stop having sex, girl is being abused  by someone which allows boy to come to rescue, boy is a womanizer but turns good for girl, boy and girl get married. Second every girl boy came into contact with wanted jump on him because he was was so hot (I believe her in one of the books he was liked to a roman god) and when he turns them down they hate on the girl and then every boy the girl comes across wants to get in her pants because she's so hot. I'm not even going to touch the issue that a 16 yr old was having sex much less with an 18 yr old. I can't believe a grown woman wrote these books. I was sure these were written by a teenage girl. Maybe she's living out  her unfulfilled fantasies through her characters. Also way too many grammatical errors though I can overlook these if I like the actual story.

The story is sweet, but weak. Very predictable. Not worth the money.

Three stars is being generous. Started off good but then became boring & redundant. Very mature content. I'm thinking the five star reviews were based on the numerous sex scenes which weren't that great but young teens might enjoy them. Lots of British spellings & terms which might be misconstrued as typos.
