Amber advises Haddie to break up with her boyfriend, Steve, because he is pressuring her to have sex. Amber later develops feelings for Steve after they share a connection and he expresses remorse for how he treated Haddie. She confesses to Haddie and apologizes, but they get into a major fight because of it that leads to Haddie's friends bullying Amber at school.
The situation causes tension among Amber and Haddie's families, leading Amber to run away. When she calls her mother to pick her up, Haddie comes and the two reconcile.
Season 2 Edit Amber becomes friends with Kelsey, whose parents are wealthy and laid-back. Sarah becomes jealous of the amount of time Amber is spending at Kelsey's house and misses her. She brings them to a club to hear a band, which Amber is initially reluctant to attend.
Later, Amber begrudgingly thanks her mother for a good time, to the delight of Sarah. Amber is the one who helped Haddie when Haddie was not allowed to meet her boyfriend, Alex.
She taught Haddie the trick to keep texting Alex without her parents' knowing, by changing the contact name Alex into 'Chloe'. Amber develops a common brother-sister relationship with Drew. She usually acts like any big sister would do to an obnoxious younger brother, but she could be very protective and supportive if necessary.
Amber often gives relationship advice to Drew, such as when he didn't know how to act on a date or kiss a girl. Amber and Drew's father, Seth, returns to town.
Amber hasn't forgiven him and is dismissive and rude to him while Drew is thrilled to have his father back. Obviously apologies do not immediately make everything better, so even after the physical fighting and the moms getting involved, Amber makes it up to Haddie. Even more importantly, when Amber goes through her downward spiral of bad choices after not being accepted into college even with stellar SAT scoresshe ends up in a very serious, very avoidable car accident.
The entire family is at the hospital for her, and even though none of us viewers expected her to die, the episode is traumatic and very touching. Throw your five year plans out the window.
Everything I need to know, I learned from Amber Holt
When Amber and Ryan are engaged, things start to go a bit sour. Though their engagement gets called off, when Ryan is sent home from the military, Amber gets pregnant and wants to keep the baby. She just does it on her own, because she wants to.
She does not beg Ryan to come back. She does not panic about what the future will be like at all, which I really admire in a person. Five year plans are not real anyway. She gets a little too drunk in a bar and ends up arguing with a man, and luckily, her father works there and swoops in to save her from driving home drunk.
He sends her future son a crib later, and everyone seems pretty happy about it. However, near the end of Season 4, Ryan is called back to his base, and he and Amber say goodbye. Season 5 Edit In the Season 5 premiere, Ryan comes home to Amber and, upon seeing her, decides to spontaneously propose.
She accepts, and the two begin planning their wedding.
