    2. I'm a sucker for angsty, forbidden love stories that put you through the ringer. 'RoomHate' is exactly that type of story. I loved every minute of this book, even when I hated it!This is a story of first loves and broken hearts. Telling the story of two childhood friends that life took in different directions, only to bring them back together years later, 'RoomHate' is a gripping emotional read. It's amazing how some loves stay with you forever, despite your every effort to move on.When Amelia's [...]

    3. This is the kind of read that you'll have to devour in one sitting or you will feel like you're being tortured while you wait to read again. Trust me, people. It is THAT good. If you have a weakness for those sexy soulful musician types, Justin will ring ALL your bells. 10 times over. Minimum. I was a bit wary at first, thinking that there would be cheating and you may read at ease. There is no cheating and with the exception of one sexy as hell voyeuristic moment there isn't anything inappropos [...]

    4. DNF at 25%. Oh Gentle Reader! Gentle Reader! As you know, i wasn't gifted the Angry Reader moniker - i earned it. On a popular sports romance book that sent me into a tizzy the likes these hallowed halls have rarely seen. Something about a threesome and then his dick only wanting her. Bc it's rational when our sex organs make our decisions. But i digress. I'd been so happy lately - reading the recommendations of the Book SoulMate. Avoiding romance books at all costs. But this one had so many goo [...]

    5. I really wasn’t sure what to expect with Roomhate, but after reading the blurb, I knew I had to take a chance. I am not a huge fan of second chance romances or the friends to lovers story. BUT this friends to lovers story was just something more, special and I adored it!Justin and Amelia were best friends growing up, but when Amelia was fifteen she moved away. We don’t know all the details but know that this move destroyed their friendship. It’s been years and now they are brought back tog [...]

    6. 2.5 Stars I usually like this author's work, but this one didn't work for me. I didn't enjoy the love story and the prose felt stilted and a little monotoned at times. The ending, however, was simply fabulous.

    7. I look like a total knob head sitting here with permanent smile slapped on my face but I don’t give a fuck! I’ve just finished one of the most beautiful books I have ever read!! Oh my fuck I’m just so giddy as fuck right now! I want to do naked cartwheels round the living room! I knew going into this book I was going to get the same feels I always do when reading a Penelope Ward book and RoomHate is most definitely up there with one of the greats. The thing I love about her books is that i [...]

    8. 2.5 StarsI did not hate this book, but I didn't especially love it either. Since this book came out and basically became a hype, I was so thrilled to read it especially because the synopsis is so interesting and I've been hearing lots of good things about Penelope Ward. That's why I'm so bummed thinking about how this book became a disappointment for me.At 1-10%, I found the story promising. My reaction was like,At 11% to 39%, At 40-43%,At 44% onwardsI guess I just didn't like the plot and how t [...]

    9. *LIVE! US * UK RoomHate is a sweet enemies-to-lovers romance with all the lovely trademarks of a second chance love story. It’s about fear, hope and never ending, all consuming love. I was super excited to begin my first Penelope Ward story and knew that I was in for a sexy reading treat with plenty of emotions on display and palpable chemistry, and I have to say that I was not disappointed. I got my feels and a dose of warm emotion whilst reading about the romance of Justin and Amelia. It [...]

    10. "Ain't no sunshine when she's gone It's not warm when she's away Ain't no sunshine when she's gone And she's always gone too long Anytime she goes away"Discovering Penelope Ward was an excellent surprise for me. I really like her style, her pattern of writing and the sweet mixture she adds in every book: love, hate, rediscovery and happy ever after. Room Hate was the first read for me and I've loved it from the beginning. The characters were amazing and made a wonderful pair, despite their diffe [...]

    12. 4 'Barcode tattoo' Stars!I seized that Penelope Ward is with us this week in the Shh Indie Star Chat (feel free to join the fun here: goo/Zjtq0M) and decided to read her newest release which, I have to say, I was a little bit scared because of the mixed reviews.

These two started as best friends when they were [...]

    13. Trepidationwas strong with this book. With half my friends loving it and the other half DNF'ing it, I was torn. However, I have really enjoyed the other P.W.'s books I've read so I couldn't let this one pass me by. And that was a good thing overall. I had an issue with the lack of maturity in some of their sexual "situations/thoughts/etc" which was really odd considering there is a real lack of sex scenes! But I digress. to the story! Justin and Amelia basically grew up together, both of them no [...]

    18. Find me on Instagram & Twitter! ❝ Sometimes the thing we fear more than anything, is really what our soul craves the most.❞I'm a VERY picky romance reader and 90% of all the romance books I pick up, I end up DNF-ing about halfway through. That's why it's really hard for me to find a romance that actually keeps me invested even after the couple gets together. So many people have recommended Roomhate to me but I just kinda set it aside because of my high expectations. My hopes weren't too [...]

    20. His voice suddenly vibrated through the mic. "This last song goes out to all the people who've ever had a certain kind of friend who drives you crazy -the kind that gets under your sin and stays there even when they're not physically present. The kind with dimples you've been dreaming about since you were a kid. The kind that's confusing as all hell. That kind. If you can relate, this song is for you."RoomHate is a new adult novel, written by Penelope Ward, and follows the chaotic relationship o [...]

    21. Forgive me if I gush during this review. I just finished this one, so there is a lot still going on in my head and heart right now. For what seems like forever, I’ve been looking for that “it” book. A romance book that hits all the marks, those things you can’t seem to put into words but you’ll know them when you find them. A love story that had complexities to it that just felt like they belonged in the story – because they are real issues that would exist in THAT sort of situation. [...]

    23. Max 2.5 stars!This book starts with an intense feeling of angst, regret, frustration, lust, attraction and sexual tension that whatever the heroine feels, you feel. The writer makes sure with her talented writing that all these feelings are conveyed to you as strongly as they are felt by the heroine. I was aching in my heart while turning the pages, sobbing every now and then…OK, I know I will be in the minority but, then I was disappointed about the direction the story took. All this anger, t [...]

    24. ♥ ♥ ♥ 3.25 STARS ♥ ♥ ♥I was really expecting to love this book based on the blurb review, that I couldn't wait to dive into this one. Unfortunately I didn't end up loving it as I hoped.The story started off really good. I liked that we got a bit of their childhood to know how they became best friends. However, as the book progressed I started losing interest. This was mainly due to the long wait for Justin and Amelia to actually get together. Before they did a lot happened where they [...]

    28. Audiobook reviewDNF @ Chapter 16/24This brought out a lot of emotions for me, but sadly they weren't the kind of emotions I want to feel when reading/listening to a book. I felt annoyed, frustrated, and pissed off at times throughout the first 16 chapters of listening this book. I'll add a spoiler tag for my breakdown of what didn't work for those of you that don't love spoilers like I do ;)(view spoiler)[- The narrator wasn't the best. I really didn't enjoy her male voice, and I think that it c [...]
