Ruth Phillips Oakland

Goodreads Author


Member Since
July 2012


Ruth Phillips Oakland was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania where she dreamed of far off places and romantic heros; however, it wasn't until her discovery of the wit and wisdom of Jane Austen that she was inspired to write. Ruth firmly believes that every woman has a romance novel within her, she was simply fortunate enough to put hers to keyboard and have it published. Inspired by the works of Jane Austen, she drew on her vivid imagination and love of comedic banter to create her first novel, 'My BFF'. Ms. Oakland resides in Eastern Massachusetts with her loving and supportive family.

Augh! This book was terrible for so many reasons.

First, the plot. It feels like the author just wrote as she went, with no real sense of direction. There are so many overused plot devises such as convenient interruptions and senseless willful misund

Yes, I realize that this is fantasy, but even in fantasy when a girl says no, it means no and when a man says I'll never force you to do anything you don't want to, and then forces her to ask for it, it's still rape. So many times I wanted Fallon to ...more

This book did not simply have scenes that bordered on rape, they were actual rape scenes. We are to accept the fact that because Seht smelled Victoria's arousal, that was the same as an informed verbal consent. It is not. I read this book a long time ...more
