I thought this would be another contemporary romance filled with unnecessary drama/angst.  But hey…RoomHate surprised me, I had no idea it was going to go in the direction that it did.  From the synopsis, it seemed like it would be a total angst-fest. 


Which brings me to the reason I listened to this at all…I can't lie, it's the cover.  Seriously, one of the hottest guys on the cover of a book…ever.  Those bedroom eyes, or eye, just kept calling me, until I couldn't resist any longer.  It also had a little to do with Penelope Ward, herself.  I've read another book by her and really enjoyed it too, she writes excellent sex scenes that enhance the plot instead of trying to BE the plot.  My only wish is that the ending played out differently.


Will I read more from this Author?  Yes, I will.
