Amber Watson thought she knew what she wanted in life – a house that didn’t have creaky stairs and 
leaky taps; a home with the perfect guy and an undying love that stole her breath away. 

Between her boyfriend, Connor, and her best friend, Ethan, she thought she had the perfect life and the perfect future only a heartbeat away.

That is until abandonment and need begin to overwhelm her. 

When Connor takes a job in London, Amber finds herself slipping at his lack of contact and the uneasy 
feeling that he’s hiding more from her than he says. 

With the help of Ethan she not only finds herself, but finds the flame she has always held for her best 
friend coming to life. 

Amber never expected to fall into a love triangle, but soon finds herself in a fight between her love for 
Connor, and the undying love she has for Ethan. 

What happens when Connor’s little secret is found out, Ethan’s secret leaves Amber abandoned once 
again, and Amber’s secret eats away at her?

"Amber!" Connor's voice floated up the stairs. His voice was followed by the slamming of the door, the 
house shaking in effect and shattering Amber’s blissful state along with it.

Feeling her eyes widen, Amber couldn't believe Ethan continued to sleep. Well, they had sex a fair few 
times, but that didn’t mean anything. She was awake and watching the room close in on her as she 
heard the first creaky step of the stairs sound out. With just that noise, panic rose like bile in her throat. 

Fuck, she wasn’t in heaven anymore. This was rapidly turning into a massive mess. Shaking Ethan awake, she covered his mouth to shut him up, his eyes looking at her in horror and she shushed him.

"Connor's out there," she whispered barely audibly, the panic shining beautifully in her eyes. "I need to go to him. I'll distract him so you can leave." She looked at him sympathetically and kissed him on the lips purposefully. Her heart was sealed now. It was pumping a delightful beat in Ethan's hands now. She just prayed he knew that. "I'm sorry. I will sort this."

He watched her jump up, dress in her crinkled pyjamas and head for the door.

Turning back to him, she looked saddened suddenly. “I really do love you, Ethan.” It was all she said 
before leaving entirely and closing it behind her to keep his presence unknown to Connor. Taking the 
moment slowly, he could hear Connor getting closer to her, but Ethan dressed himself as quietly as 
possible. Ignoring the pounding of his own heart. He even tried to deny the feeling of his own wounds 
cracking open again across the surface of his heart. Once he was fully clothed he looked around for 
somewhere to hide. There was nowhere, and he knew he had one escape route and very little time.

Opening the window, Ethan clambered out, holding on tightly. As the door began to open he froze and 
he was glad he had as the conversation took a new turn and Connor stood blocking the gap with his 
back. Ethan held on as he listened to the conversation. He clung onto the windowsill allowing curiosity 
to grip him and ultimately weaken him.

"I can't wait. I thought I could but I can't," Connor spoke up, releasing the door handle and reaching into his pocket. "Will you marry me, Amber Watson?" Connor's voice resonated up the stairway and into every room in this house.

Ethan didn't stand a chance to hear the response as his palms became slick with sweat and he lost his grip entirely. He fell from the terrace on the house and onto the bush below with a painful impact. As he lay there winded he didn't know what hurt him more - his heart or his body.

Had he just lost the girl of his dreams forever?

This isn't your typical love story, at all. If you want the boy meets girl, girl & boy fall in love, get married and live happily ever after, this isn't for you. However, this book is about real love, the kind you fight for, fight over, and try your hardest to find and hold onto. That is what this story is about.

Amber thought she had almost everything she could ever want, a home with the man she loves, two best friends, and was moving closer to her happily ever after. Then reality broke in. Her boyfriend moves for a job and starts acting funny. This causes her to wonder if he is cheating on her, and helps her to spiral into a deep depression.

Connor loves Amber. She is the first woman he can see a forever with. However he has to leave her and move to London for work. He doesn't understand why she is acting the way she is. They will be able to talk, skype and text each other, as well as travel back and forth to spend time together. Besides it's only for 20 weeks while he is working on this new project.

Ethan is watching Amber and Connor together, and is trying to be the best friend she needs, supportive, cheerleader, and friend she can lean on. There is just one thing she doesn't know, not really. He has loved her since the first time they met. Ethan has been kept in the "friend box" for so long, will she ever see him as anything more than that?

When Connor leaves, and things fall apart for Amber, Ethan is there to help her out and pick up the pieces. That is what he always helps her do, ever since college. However, when things get worse between those two, he gets his chance to be the one to save the day and take care of the girl.

Of course, things are never that easy. Ethan's past comes back around and pulls him away from Amber. Connor proposes, and Amber has to choose. Will she pick the man that forgets her at times and is just so busy with work that he forgets all about her? Will she choose the man that has been there for her for years and has loved her unconditionally?? Will she even have a choice to make? Will Amber grow up and become the strong woman she needs to be? Will their pasts come back to haunt them?

This is the first book, and it is AMAZING to read!
I am already dying for the next book to come out and find out what happens next!

Kirsty-Anne Still

I used to be just another Fanfiction writer! That was until one person showed real interest in my work. And then another, and then another, until I had this whole group of people reviewing like crazy and wanting original work from me. I’d spent years writing for free online, I didn’t believe I had it in me to publish something!
But I’m glad I did!! I never imagined pushing my work and striving to reach my ultimate. I never imagined I’d be the girl who started The Viper Rooms! But who am I to deny the inspiration when it hits?
I love writing, it’s a lifeline. I love creating a world that others fall into. I love having the control to make a whole new world. It’s like a dependency, an addictive one. It’s one of the things I’m extremely proud of.
As much as I complain, I love the mini dialogues that go on in my head, the plotlines that attack me when I least expect them to. The ones that jump to life at the most inappropriate times and drive me totally crazy!
For now I split my life between writing, dreaming, working, and volunteering with children.

Bethan Cooper

Bethan Cooper spends her days working 8 hours at a well-known restaurant and yawning - a lot.
But her vulnerability behind the uniform is her writing, having been obsessed with writing short stories and song lyrics from her teens, she has finally put pen to paper and started a novel.
She is married to the love of her life, who she met when she was seventeen.
So writing romance is a must for her, especially lots of kissing and people surrounded by love, as it is after all, the best human emotion.
