Read:: RoomHate by Penelope Ward

Soooooooooooooooo this one wrecked me. And I was also stupid beginning it at 530 in the morning knowing I had to stop reading at 630, to begin the day and then to work a 8 hour day. I was reading so fast, I know I missed stuff so I know a re read will happen sooner than later. It was so good with the details and writing style (as always with Penelope) that I just tried to keep reading as long as I could. 

I absolutely loved loved loved this couple. I wanted to hate Justin so much but there was no way that could happen. I will say I love smart grandmothers, they always know best. 

So Justin and Amelia are gifted a house from her dead grandmother, to own together, these two havent spoken or laid eyes on each other in almost 10 years. When she shows up, she is reminded of all these memories of her past with Justin and her grandmother. Justin shows up weeks behind her with his girlfriend, my heart sank, I loved it though, it didnt make it easy. And his girlfriend, Jade, was so icky sweet, you couldnt not like her. 

Justin is down right hateful with Amelia and any fantasies she may have had about their reunion go right out the door. He avoids her, he is mean, he is rude, he tries to make sure uncomfortable. He finally gets to a point that he cant handle it and they start to talk about their feelings, with the help of alcohol when his girlfriend interrupts the moment.

Its a moment I didnt think they would get back. When Amelia goes to the doctor for what she thinks is the flu, I about started crying and questioning how in the hell Ms. Ward was going to pull off a good ending with these two together. My heart honestly stayed in my throat and my heart was beating fast. I just kept flipping the page wondering what in the world was going to happen next. 

A year later, they are reunited and Justin meets her daughter. Their relationship grows, builds, and finally I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They are still months before either of them decide they should tell the other how they feel. I tell ya the last 3 books have been miscommunication central. 

You want a book that keeps you on edge, tells you a great love story, has a GREAT epilogue (sometimes the most important part for me), and shows how a family can come together, buy it now, read it, re read it, show Penelope some love for putting this story together for YOU. 

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 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 readers under the age of 18.
