Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling 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 is...now that I can't have Justin, I've never wanted him more.

Author's note: RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

    Story
    "A Bit Juvenile"

    I almost couldn't finish this book. For one thing it wasn't very hot, sex or even play didn't happen until really close to the end. And the adversarial roommate idea (you know the reason for the title) was only a small section. Mostly it was a starting a family fantasy featuring the most annoying bad communication and irrational behavior I've read in a while. Not hot, not funny or clever. meh.

    "Good story. Bad writing. Terrible narration."

    A good story/plot but unfortunately really badly written as if it was written by a 14yr old at times really annoying. Then there was the narrator.... terrible!!!! i wouldnt waste a credit on this and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    "Just Okay"

    This started off good but I wasn't impressed with this as I was with the author's other novel "stepbrother dearest". The story was a little predictable at times. About half way through, the story kind of went awry. I really wanted to like this but as a whole I found it lacking.

    "Not erotica"

    I found this book under the "erotica" section. The sex scenes started 6.5 hours in, and there were only two of them and they didn't even get to do it the first time. The storyline is good if you want just a plain ol chick flick novel.

    "Sweet Love Story!"

    I enjoyed this story, it was very sweet. I love a friends to lovers kinda story. Justin went from Jerk to completely swoon worthy. The writing was great, the story sweet, the sex was hot. I was expecting it to be way dirtier because this author usually is but I still enjoyed the romance & love story. The story went in a direction I didn't see coming but I don't always read the synopsis so maybe that is why.

    The narration was good too!

    "Loved it, every minute of it"

    RoomHate. Meet Justin, Penelope’s newest oh so hawt character. And meet Amelia another of her heroines you can’t help but love. They’ve been friends growing up until a secrete broke them apart and they went their separate ways only to be brought back together by their Nanny. Needless to say their reunion not a happy one, involving a lot of hurt feelings and resentment. But beyond all the hurtful things being said the true feelings can’t hide.

    Both living their own lives, seeing each other brings a lot of turmoil to each their lives. Unexpected events bring them closer together only to be pulled apart again by an opportunity for Justin too good to turn down. Will they be able to overcome yet another obstacle?

    Thank you Penelope for yet another wonderful story about two people whose love for each other leads them to where they are meant to be.

    "Amazing story"

    Perfect combination of Lust and Love in all shapes. I felt all the emotions, the unconditional love from nana, longing and getting disappointed to a mother you long for, love and hate to a friend that grew into love. Them growing up into an amazing parents is my fave, tho the sex scenes are pretty awesome 😁

    "Buildup took too long"

    Great story but the buildup was entirely too long. Best friends and lots of angst.

    "Chapter 4"

    Chapter 4 alone made me cringe with laughter and more! If the rest of the book is this good it deserves 5's.

    "Loved"

    Angst, full on angst. Oooh yes, that would be all the sexual tension. As much as I loved this book, it also frustrated me, I wanted to knock their heads together!! Big time. Best friends from an early age, Justin and Amelia stick together, why not? They have a past entwined with misery and heartache, yet linked to one person, Amelia's Grandma, whom they both love, big time. Yet, years after Amelia apparently abandon's him, following grandma's death Justin and Amelia are forced together. Unfortunately for Amelia though. Justin dies not come alone, he is armed with his super hot girlfriend. Can they get past their differences and become what grandma was also hoping for? Yes, no, I don't know. Just loved the ride. Thank you. Some wonderful characters, fabulous writing and story telling. Highly recommend
