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.
"We both came from broken homes, but from the moment I met you, my world seemed a little less broken."
" Temptation is natural. That doesn't mean you should act on it."
" There is no music without you. Music is an expression of all those things you live for...a reflection of the passion within your soul. I live for you. Your my passion. You're my music...you and Bea."
RoomHate was nothing that I expected and everything that I loved in a good story, I had this expectation of reading ongoing sex scenes starting from page one and I was so happy to find out that it is much more than that.
With Amelia finding out that her grandmother leaves her half of the beach house and the other half is left to her best friend that she hasn't seen in over a decade, she doesn't understand how it is going to work but is willing to take a chance and accept him back into her life. Remembering that Justin meant a lot to her and her grandmother Amelia is willing to put up with Justin's anger towards her. She is also hoping they could get past their feelings of the childhood friendship that Amelia walked away from. Life blindsides Amelia and having no one to help get her through these unexpected circumstances, she is surprised as to who will be there for her.
Justin has it all a beautiful actress/model girlfriend, is a musician and a good life in New York. Well, that's what he thought until the girl that broke his heart comes back into his life. Justin spent a lot of his youth with Amelia's grandmother and finding out that she left him half of the beach house he spent years growing up in, he knew that eventually he would bump into Amelia, but can he hold back all the anger and hate that he hid behind those years of having her out of his life?
RoomHate is one of those stories that you will find yourself hating/upset with the hero until he totally wins your heart over. The sexual tension is so intensely written it's like your reading a gradual foreplay that sends tingles along your body until that explosion of a moment. Amelia is a perfect character that handles each situation with lots of thought behind them, her unexpected surprise will not only change her life it might bring the only person she ever loved back into it. I loved everything about this story and it will be one that I will find myself going back to read.
