REVIEW: Roomhate by Penelope Ward
Stuck as roommates, Amelia can't get over the hurt or the escalating feelings of attraction for Justin who is even better looking now than he ever was as a teen. As their relationship mends itself and heats up, they must weather a hurricane of emotions and obstacles before hate turns to love and a possible happy ending.
I had mixed feelings about this one. Justin is pretty much a dick and while he does redeem himself by the end, it is hard to put his attitude and treatment of Amelia behind as the romance blooms. That being said, I'm not a huge fan of Amelia either. Roomhate is a pretty good representation of the New Adult genre - angst, relationships, identity and some sexy times.
One downside for me was definitely the audiobook. It was pretty awful actually. I didn't care at all for the narrator who didn't do much for Amelia or authenticity of voice.
Final rating: 3 out of 5 stars
