Publisher Description

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.

This is one of my favorite Penelope Ward books I first read several years and just reread . Amelia and Justin first meet as kids and form a bond that is indescribable and when you meet them you feel it will last forever. Then the unthinkable happens and Amelia runs away and they lose contact. Years later Amelia’s NaNa dies and leaves Justin and Amelia her beach home. This is the story of how two old friends deal with life. The book is funny, romantic, full of chemistry and Justin is the perfect boyfriend one you will never forget as you learn the way life should Bea. A five plus stars...

My favorite Penelope Ward book!

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!
