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.

    I love Penelope’s books. I am always sad to say goodbye to the characters in her books, it’s like leaving friends.

    I wanted to stop reading because Amelia was starting to get on my nerves. I decided to push through and glad I did because the ending showed her growth and confidence in herself.

    She can’t think for herself, let’s him insult her and still wants him...she’s a real winner. He’s a tool but hey, he’s apparently hot so he gets a pass...ASS!

    Please do NOT waste your time on this offbrand wattpad look alike book. So incredibly cringy and only 2-dimensional characters. Seriously terrible
