From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.He was the nerd.I was the playboy.She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.Amber never knew how I felt.They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

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.

PE circle 400

Their reunion is not one of happiness.  Amelia is just coming off of a bad relationship where her fiancé cheated on her.  She is vulnerable and being on the receiving end of Justin’s deserving wrath, is almost too much.  Will he come around?  Did her grandmother know what she was doing by making sure to have her hand in destiny by bringing these two together again?

Great story, unexpected twists, and lovely to read.

RoomHate is a standalone romance and is unrelated to any of Penelope Ward’s previous titles.

Amelia is a school teacher living in Providence. The summer following her beloved Grandmother’s death she heads off to Aquidneck Island, the place she grew up and the place she ran away from. It will be a bittersweet visit. The island holds both good and bad memories, but it is also now her summer home, having been left half of her Grandmother’s house in her will. And here lies the problem. The other half belongs to her childhood best friend, the boy’s whose heart she broke and the boy she ran away from all those years ago. But Justin is no longer a boy, he is a drop dead gorgeous man, and this won’t be a joyful long overdue reunion. She faces a summer from hell, living with a man that still holds her heart, but who hates her with a passion.

I love Penelope Ward’s books. I have to be honest though I didn’t jump on this book quite as quickly as her previous ones. The last book of hers that I read was Sins of Sevin and to be honest, it wasn’t for me. That being said, I can wholeheartedly jump up and down and say RoomHate is.

I seriously loved this book. The storyline was really entertaining. We start and continue in the present, but with snippets of the past to give us the back story; that really worked for me. Told from Amelia’s POV, it is a bumpy road and both Amelia and Justin have a mountain of bitterness from the past and feelings of the present to battle through. There is a bit of a twist in the story which I didn’t see coming and it made the book so much more than a second chance romance. It made it a story about not just love and romance, but of watching these 2 individuals grow separately in the hope of one day finding a future together.

 

If you like your romance with more than hearts and flowers, RoomHate is a book I can highly recommend. It kept me riveted and I struggled to put it down. Another MUST READ from this incredibly talented author.
