Book Review: RoomHate by Penelope Ward


RoomHate (standalone novel)
by Penelope Ward
Genre: Contemporary Romance


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 is...now that I can't have Justin, I've never wanted him more.

"Flashes of him invaded my mind: his dark blond hair, his laughter, the strum of his guitar, the deep sadness and disappointment in his gorgeous eyes the last time I saw him nine years ago."

RoomHate, Penelope's newest release was quite an enjoyable book. Justin is every woman's wet dream - his rock star persona and charisma works as an aphrodisiac, not to forget his smooth voice that makes women throw their panties in his face lol. 

Amelia and Justin were ones best friends. They've done everything together. They were each others rock, shoulder to lean on to and first love - even though they didn't tell the other how they felt. They were inseparable until one night; a night where Amelia's world turned upside down, feeling the betrayal of the people she considered family, including Justin. 

After that night, she took off and never looked back. Nine years have passed and now it's time to return to face her past, him, and everything she ran from.

"My chest tightened. He hated me. I avoided him for so long, but I was really going to face him now."

I enjoyed reading how these two had to face each other and work out their bottled up anger, frustration, hurt and longing. It was clear when reading how much they're hurting but also never stopped caring - despite that the book is written only in Amelia's point of view, Penelope captured Justin's hurt, confusion, anger, and desire perfectly. 

RoomHate has everything, it's funny, thoughtful, emotional and sexy - a book for everyone, especially if you like second chance and friends-to-lovers romance with a well-deserved HEA!

"No one's ever compared to you, Amelia. You have to know that."
