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