…like me, she wouldn’t take crap from male colleagues who thought they could do or say whatever they wanted just because they were packing two olives and a cocktail weenie in their shorts.
Stewart was right next to him, a cocky grin on his face like he had just found out his penis was two inches long instead of one.
Run, you fool! There’s a chance you are going to be killed! Never call a woman wedgie girl!

There is just something about Ruth and some of the embarrassing situations she gets herself into that are just so so amusing. Then again, really early on, there was a moment of high drama that shows that the author isn't just great with comedy, he can really amp up the adrenaline too.
That being said don't read the opening chapters on a plane if you are a nervous flyer!

Ruth is brilliant, there’s just something about her that makes her extremely likeable and she has given me many laughs throughout the book.
I’m the first to admit, I favour female authors- this is my first read by Rich Amooi but it’s definitely not going to be the last. Everything about this book is fun and lighthearted.

I'll admit that the funny title and the rather strident-looking women on the cover pulled me into this book when I saw it at my favorite book review site. Then I noticed the author’s name. I was surprised to see a man’s name, as the book description definitely reads like a romance, which it definitely is. There are a few male romance authors that I read, but they are certainly rare compared to female romance writers. Given the title, I hoped he would not be making a ...more
I have to say that this books opening chapter has to be one of my favourites. It had me laughing out loud and grimacing all at the same time!
Just to give you a lil insight.... it involves... a spin class, a wedgie and a hunky stranger!

I love stories about strong and successful women. If those women have great personalities and a strong sense of humor, they're my favorite!
Ruth is 45 y. o. and single. She is also a perfectionist and competitive in her job. She knows what she wants in every aspect of her life... that's what she thought! Then an almost crash of her plane made her thinking again on what's more important.
So she discovers di ...more

When I shared the title of this amusing romantic comedy with my closest remaining gay guy friends, I thought they would laugh as much as I did. They survived a breast cancer scare and uterine cysts treatments with me. I was a complete hormonal nightmare through all of that, and after all the treatments, I was presented with a ...more
Ruth Harper seems to have it all...a great career and a beautiful home, yet she doesn’t spend her time nurturing her personal relationships, for example with her parents. Her only friend is her PA. She doesn’t do relationships or feelings….especially love. However, all that changes with one night on an airport runway, and she decides she wants more out of life, maybe even love.
She decides she will use the same methods to find love as she did to find success in the business world. Well, ...more

Rich Amooi has a way with creating memorable characters, and he’s done it again with Ruth and Nick! Given Ruth’s priorities in life, I figured I’d have a difficult time in accepting the choices she makes, yet there is a vulnerable side to her that shows itself slowly within the pages and in her interactions with Nick. He begins to open her up, even when it goes against his own beliefs. I couldn’t disparage Ruth for wanting to go ...more
