Now onto Liam who is Jakes best friend and next door neighbor. Liam knows about the abuse and one day sees Amber crying in her room (she was 8 and he was 10) so he sneaks on over to her house and crawls through the window and calms her down. Ever since that day, he has been sleeping next to her to make sure the nightmares of her father go away. Liam is in love with Amber, he had a super cute crush on her when he was 6 (the first day they met) and she was 4. Throughout the years he started to fall in love with her which her brother Jake did not like because like all protective older brothers he told him to stay away from her.
Liam and Amber don't actually become a couple (known to everyone) until like the middle of the book, maybe a little after that. I actually liked their friendship/relationship growth throughout the book. I also really like how Liam and Jake are so protective of Amber because of what she went through. But then you find out that their dad is still trying to get in contact with Amber and how he only wants to see her and no one else. Of course you don't find out until their father comes back into town with a new family (who he also abuses) and threatens to take her away. She ends up in the hospital twice that week (once from fainting and finding out that she is pregnant with Liam's baby and the second time from her father hurting her and she ended up losing the baby).
Let me be frank, this book did have errors and it was sometimes hard to get through some sections but overall I did actually like it. Yes, it did have editing errors as well but that happens with some books so I can't complain that much. I didn't really understand why Liam called Amber "Angel" all the time but then you find out towards the end and it actually was really cute and endearing. This story is about how a family, especially amber, deals with a such a traumatic life and it was interesting to see her go through this and finally get closure at the end. She fought the demon by herself, which didn't please any of the other characters, and I was proud of her. I get that this book wont be for everyone but I plead you not to read the reviews until after you read the book. Always good to form your own opinion first (which I'm really happy I did).
Writing style: Dual POVs
Cover and chapter design: I really like the cover with her visible through the rain. I love the silver heart and mix of block and cursive fonts for the chapter headings. And the skates for chapter breaks was a cool visual bonus as well.

Original Audible Title: Could this boy be any more perfect? Nope! ;)
Overall rating: ★★★★☆
Performance rating: ★★★★☆ - Both narrators animated the characters well.
Story rating: ★★★★☆ - Liam was such a good boyfriend. I really loved that he was willing to wait until whenever Amber was ready to take their building young romance to the ultimate physical level. What I remember most about this story was how much of a sick twat Amber and Jake’s dad was. Why people like him have to share the planet with decent human beings I’ll never truly comprehend. I liked that Amber figured out a way to cut her dad out of their lives for good. And it was super cool to have a 5 years later epilogue.
So more about the book itself...
The storyline was good, actually, the one I really love - hate/ love relationships, brother’s best friend, YA..so on and so on.. but the book did not met the expectations as all was boring and blant... I could not connect with any of the characters, they felt emotionless, cold and ones that actually do not know that love is not the words only...
So it is abot Jake (the brother), Amber (the girl) and Liam (the best friend). The only good thing was that, at the very beginning, I thought that Amber’s name IS Angel and that was an iteresting twist of names. All the rest... not good at all. So much actions in one book and it still did not make me feel anything but bored.
There are a lot of better books, this is not the one a reader shall loose his/ her time on.
