RoomHate by Penelope Ward

RoomHate: The #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

Not when it's Justin...the only person I'd ever loved...who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

The same teenager who's now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

I hadn't seen him in years, and now we're living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn't come alone.

I'd soon realize there's a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all...the boy is still there. So is our connection.

The problem that I can't have Justin, I've never wanted him more.

Author's note - RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel.

Always loved Penelope Ward's books, and this was another great one!! About 227 pages, with a lot of steamy sex, emotional upheaval, and all around wonderful read. I did like that if there was a misunderstanding, Mrs. Ward did not drag it out for pages and pages, (that gets old). I recommend any of Mrs. Wards books****

RoomHate is my favorite Penelope Ward book so far. At first I thought it was very similar to Stepbrother Dearest, but that changed with a plot twist I wasn't expecting. At first I didn't know if I liked that plot twist because of how it would change the story, but I got over that quickly. I ended up loving the twist and how it changed both Amelia and Justin's lives. Part One was of the book was good, but part two was even better. I loved Amelia and Justin's relationship. They have been through so much together throughout the years and I loved where the end up. This book has a lot of emotional moments that make you feel for the characters and what their going through. It is also quite funny as well. The end of the book is so cute, especially the epilogue, which I enjoyed it being in Justin's perspective. However, like always, I wish it was longer. Overall it was a great read!

Best book I’ve read in a long time!

Truly enjoyed reading this. Written well and detailed enough that I cared about the characters while reading. There were scenes that were a true tease to create a build up not just thrown into crazy sex. Then there were the amazing sex scenes.

This is my first experience reading anything by this author, but it definitely won’t be my last. It was a predictable HEA story. It was well written and made me cry as matters of the heart often do.
