book as much as I did Justin swooooon 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 special and I adored itJustin 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 together when Amelia s grandmother The Elders Speak passes away Together they inherit her beachfront home on the island they grew up on The summer starts it s chaotic turbulent and a complete cluster that I just couldn t look away from Amelia begins the summer with regret and wants to reconcile with her former best friend Justin just feels anger and hostility toward Amelia As the reader we don t know all the details but I was immediately engaged Amelia is such a fantastic character and in the end I adored her too She is caring and loving she is devoted and forgiving but mostly she is strength and courage I loved how she handled everything She isn terfect but she was relatable and so genuine I was cheering and so excited for her finally get her HEAI swear there were moments I hated Justin but in the end he was completely redeemed I loved how his changes were gradual and it wasn t like a flip was switched and he changed Seeing his actions changed my feelings about him and I loved that It wasn t all words you could actually see the change and shift in him I also loved seeing his change and him struggling with his feelings This story had so much heart but it s also crazy hot and super sexy The story had this slow build that had me anxious to see what happened next and excited to turn the The Pharisees Guide to Total Holiness page I seriously loved this one so much It had feels angst sexiness and an engaginglot This is my favorite Ward book yet ARC kindly rovided in exchange for an honest review Teasers created by me with stock images urchased from depositphotos DNF at 25% Oh Gentle Reader Gentle Reader As you know i wasn t gifted the Angry Reader moniker i earned it On a Craft Notes for Animators 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 good reviews So many stars I was lulled into a sense of complacency Gentle Reader that aforementioned steamingile of crap was sweet lyric to mine ears compared to the dumpster fire full of filthy diapers and old tires that made up this tome Holy shit The Perception and the External World plot as i understand it Andlease forgive me if i seem confused At Popular Representations of Development points i had no actual idea what was happening Amelia inherits half of a house from her dead Gma Her childhood BFF inherits the other They haven t spoken in 10 years bc of deep dark angsty secret Rightio They end up in the house together for the summer with his GF who is so so nice to our heroine Like seriously she s creepy Upon first encountering our heroine our hero leaps on her like some kind of 8th grade girl in a middle school cat fight All while loudlyrotesting that he s SO OVER IT HE DOESN T CARE ABOUT HER HE DOESN T WANNA TALK ABOUT IT His GF spends a lot of time looking around apologetically I Sister for Sale pictured her as a robot Or a blow up doll In the first 6% Justin insulted Amelia in a manner that would have gotten him tased in this house Ignored her while they had dinner Had bizarre loud sex with his GF so Amelia could hear And smirked a lot How can a man holding a grudge from 10th grade be a romantic hero That s not love that s diagnosable At 25% you find out why they don t speak any It s awesomely bad 1980s Lionel Richie with a mullet in a members only jacket kinda bad And then i gave up At thisoint there were 2 options to save this book a dragon flies down and eats everyone or Keanu Reeves wakes up and realizes it was all a dream Judging from the loud SUEEEEEEES echoing down my GR newsfeed i don t think either of these things happen Thus i m left with a story where these two emotionally stunted morons form some sort of relationship And i cannot live in world where that s considered any sort of happy ending PS i m not even going to get into the writing here It had all the subtlety of a speeding locomotive And clearly the author thinks that only morons would read her stuff she needs so badly to tell the reader things that she repeats them in the same sentence Along the lines of she liked gummy bears and she loved them and she wanted them and needed them so so much Right Blunt force trauma to the head bc no one reading this could appreciate nuance or allusion AR is dragging her corpse out of the romance genre for a while back to the recommendations of the BSM 45 Bea Stars 25 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 The Blue Door (Threshold prose felt stilted and a little monotoned at times The ending however was simply fabulous 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 meeople 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 The story wasn t too focused on sex Though once it happens it is totally delish There was sexual tension yes but the story hones in on the recovery of an amazing and fragile relationship and the development of both characters into eople who will be in one that is both healthy and lasting The.

Animosity that Justin has toward Amelia in the beginning is The Art of Standing Still pretty harsh but we read about their journey to the essence of what drives all of that One of the most remarkable traits about the characters is that they are mature initial animosity aside Don t roll your eyes at me Lol For real they don t just react but make big decisions after talking and rationalizing Too often we read about the impulsive characters that make big mistakes and end up really messing things up before the big reconciliation but this doesn t really work that way and sets itself apart for that I don t want to go into thelot because I found that each tidbit was important to the journey However I was very impressed and recommend that after you re done with your currently reading you treat yourself to this little nugget When you re done and thanking me let s LOL together about the stabbing that Amelia does every so often to herself or how wonderfully lucky that cute bumblebee is A Ladys Honor (Cliffs of Cornwall, p FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 45 stars WOW What an addictive unputdownable book It was a mix of crazy intense angst and the most heart warming love story you can imagine a total emotional rollercoaster with twist after twist that kept me glued to theage I absolutely LOVED it Sharing a summer house with a hot as hell roommate should be a dream come true right Not when it s Justinthe only Bob and Larry in the Case of the Missing Patience person I d ever loved who now hates me When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Auidneck 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 hardassersonality 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 The War to End All Wars 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 allthe boy is still there So is our connection Theroblem isnow that I can t have Justin I ve never wanted him This book grabbed my attention from the very first Death Comes for the Archbishop page By that I uite literally mean that I even have the opening lines highlighted and then by the end of the first chapter I was fully hooked on the story Penelope Ward has effortlessly smooth writing that draws you into the story and makes it hard to look awayEven from that first moment that they saw each other again after so many years apart with no explanation the scene was charged with feels Despite the animosity and resentment between them the minute they were in each other s space BOOM My heart racedI loved Justin even when he was being as ass Even though it might not have been overly mature he had every right to beissed I would have been too in his situation He was sexy and brooding even while he was flinging insults and taunting her any way he could But then the the story developed and the he opened up to her my gosh this guy was Mostly Mama pure swoon material Oh and he s a rock starBut I m getting ahead of myself That first summer when they got the house Justin brought two things with him a bucket load of angry resentment and yep a girlfriend To make matters worse she was actually really nice Like an actual decent sane cool girl Which sucked because I naturally wanted to hate her don t judge This whole situation made me wary because I hate love triangles and cheating is a hard limit for me So I want to say first that there is NO CHEATING in this book However the girlfriend was there Honestly though I was totally fine with the triangle aspect within this story I think that Justin handled it very well and also you should know that the triangle isn t the whole focus of the story It does get resolved and there is a LOT to this book than thatart so just honestly don t worry about itDespite his girlfriend and wayyyy before there was any hint of actual romance between Justin and Amelia there was this SPARK to their connection Even just when they were talking together The Naked Man platonically You know how you can sometimes just feel it when twoeople belong together With them it was always a uestion of when not if they should be together They just had to catch up with the Damias Children programWhen his girlfriend got called out of town for work it gave him and Amelia the time to reconnect again and I don t mean romantically I really did mean the no cheating thing Prior to thisoint most of their interactions were uite angry but this just gave them the room to get to know each other again and actually get back to some real communication about what had torn them apart so many years ago It was an emotionally complicated situation but hopefully what Justin says will reassure you The way I see it if you want to cheat on someone you should just break up with them Cheating is for cowards And then juuuuuuuust when things between them got almost too intense to handle an unprecedented twist completely changed her life I mean my gosh I thought it was angsty before but aaaahh I knew nothing And then not long after what he did next had me swooning in a heart melting Cutremur de timp puddle of goo It was still angsty but also sweet and just GAH myoor feels were tugged in all sorts of directions at onceSorry I m trying really hard to be vague here and not tell you exactly what happens but I ll just say that the twist has something to do with kidsbabies I m mentioning this specifically because I know for many of you like me storylines with kids are a huge draw towards books But just so you know it s Backlash : La guerre froide contre les femmes probably not exactly the kids situation you re thinking hehe it took me a little by surprise but I loved itI will say that my only complaint in the entire book was that things did get to aoint where I seriously just wanted to lock the two of them in a broom closet and not let them out until they d sworn their undying love for each other It s definitely intense and extreme but hey it s an angst fest so I just embraced it I am so sorry if my leaving like that hurt you in any way Hurt me He let out a slightly angry laugh then shocked me with what he said next It changed me I loved you Amelia I was in love with you Justin ran his fingers th.

have and I always will and I don t want anything to happen to you There s loads of steam in this book it s definitely an Adult romance with some serious hotness But the scenes were very well spread out in the book such that the focus was the character development and the heat complimented it I was really happy with the balanceI feel like this whole book was angst done right It ushes you to the very limits but doesn t actually break rules I m usually a bit nervous with this kind of book because it s retty easy to take these situations too far in the wrong direction but I really think that

Romance For of my reviews book news and updates Main blog Aestas Book Blog Facebook Blog Page Twitter Subscribe by email 25 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 meAt 1 10% I found the story Seven Days in Utopia promising My reaction was likeAt 11% to 39% At 40 43%At 44% onwardsI guess I just didn t like thelot and how the entirety of the storyline was conveyed The writing style of Penelope Ward was exceptional I d give her that but I really wasn t that invested with the story Plus the sudden turn of events at 40% and the rest of the book seemed off It basically ruined the whole stuffThe ending and the epilogue were sweet though and the romance was okay There were even lots of sexy times I also loved Justin s character and how adorable he appeared to be Not to mention he s smoking hot and his character as well as Amelia s developed in the later Lots of Love part of the book Hence the 25 I look like a total knob head sitting here withermanent 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 it s not just one story you feel like its two stories but with the same charactersI love when she does Two Parts When you get into Part Two it feels like the characters have come such a long way from when you first meet them and the I m a sucker for angsty forbidden love stories that Reclaiming Love put you through the ringer RoomHate is exactly that type of story I loved every minute of this book even when I hated itThis is a story of first loves and broken hearts Telling the story of two
