RoomHate by Penelope Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OH PENELOPE WARD WHAT U DO TO MY POOR HEART!!
I absolutely loved this story, most of my reviews for this Author begin like this, but it is one of things I absolutely ADORE about Penelope, the ability to completely transfixed you, transport you and carry you to your own private world.
From the first page I was hooked, yes it wasn't unpredictable but who cares I completely got lost in the story and fell in love with the characters.
As the synopsis declares, there is a fine line between Love and Hate and viceversa, but you see both of our characters have loved each other from a very early age, they became best friends, confidants, protectors, a shoulder to cry on, something like that builds an unbreakable bond, a force so strong that no matter distance of time, it will never be broken.
However Justin was broken, many years back, you could say Amelia broke his heart and perhaps a little bit of his ego, distance makes him bitter, he decides to move on with his life and forget about the girl who hurt him.
Amelia on the other hand, was a confused 15 year old who didn't know how to deal with things and she makes the wrong decision by running from the issues rather than to face them, who can blame her, well Justin certainly can.
The two are brought back face to face when Amelia's grandmother who helped raise Justin, leaves them a house as part of an inheritance. Now there is nowhere to run for Amelia, and Justin is so looking forward to making her life hell; well that was his original plan until they set eyes on each other.
Things are complicated, he is in a committed relationship and she has just come out of one, timing is everything. But as they say, there is no smoke without fire, and the flames for these two are not completely extinguished so the feelings slowly begin to resurface. But you see Justin is not your typical alpha, dominating, character, he is so caring and honest and unselfish, and when the tough gets going he is the one who runs.
A complete page turner, full of angst, great characters, fantastic story line and plenty of steamy SEX, RoomHate is another BESTSELLER!!
