It's Not PMS, It's You
After the worst day ever (a near-death experience and a public wedgie, for starters), Ruth realizes she doesn’t want to liv ...more
More lists with this book...
…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 are certain things that women ask men that are problematic and have to ...more
Ruth Harper is a woman who is quite happy with her life. She is a workaholic, single and driven to move up in her company. She has one friend, Dee, who also happens to ...more
On one hand we had the brilliantly written and wonderful snark and sass of the MC who didn’t let anyone get in her way, owning her life and showing guys that women are just as capable as men, especially in the first half of the book.
But on the other hand I didn’t really like our love interest that much, he kinda annoyed me and was surprisingly judgy. I also got slightly annoyed when our MC changed for him, like I get that she ‘changed for the ...more
How does Rich Amooi do it - writing a woman's voice who is strong, confident and powerful. I absolutely loved this Rom/Com and kept me smiling the entire time I was reading this.
You will absolutely find yourself rooting for Ruthless Ruth the entire time - she is passionate and is absolutely kicking it at her consulting firm ran by men and on her way up to making partner.
Just like her success in her profession, she sees that making a business pla ...more
I always get a book hangover from his books, they make me feel so happy and they are always about finding a happy ...more
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!
I love Nick and Ruth, they are fabulous, complete and utte ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this. This is a new author for me, and it was a delight to find that the content lives up to the clever, attention-grabbing title.
A go-getter with a major Type A personality, Ruth Harper is tough and ruthless enough to survive and thrive in her competitive, testosterone-heavy work environment. Her company expects all its employees to sacrifice their social lives to chase bigger and more lucrative company acquisitions, which they quickly dismantle and ...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!
Ruth is a headstrong workaholic who knows what she wants, isn't afraid to go get it and don't let any man intimidate her.
But one thing is missing and that's a boyfriend.

I don't usually leave reviews. Normally I read Recency Romance, Highlander Romance, etc.etc. I came across this book by accident and thought what had I got to lose ?...I can always stop reading.... Right? I was caught after the first page. A wonderfully written romantic comedy. I love the characters. In my mind I became Ruth !!!! What a great different genre for me. Do yourself a favor and take a step back from worries and read this. Rich Amooi, is now one of my favorite autho ...more
The plot is a nice pace, and the characters are quirky and relatable. The audio narration is great.
Definitely recommend for a quick and easy read / listen. ...more
The beginning grips you as the two main characters run into each other at a gym in a rather uncomfortable and funny situation.
And, thus begins an emotional and funny story. I loved how Rich expresses emotions. Each chapter is detailed and pace ...more
This was such an enjoyable,entertaining and also thoughts provoking read.
Ruth and Nick have opposite personalities, they are like the yin and the yang.She is a ruthless,stressed workaholic. He is a relaxed, exterior designer who always takes time for himself. Ruth hires Nick to fix up her her backyard and the chemistry between them is clear since their first encounter even if the situation is also pretty funny. They are opposites but both of them miss Love in their lives and maybe this will be
This was such a delightful and refreshing book. I’ve been so frustrated with misleading so-called “romantic comedies” lately it was a pleasure to come across this title. Ruth the “Ruthless” was badass, original, and hilarious. I’d read all day from her POV and I’m pretty sure i’ll enjoy every second. Obviously this says a lot about the author’s writing style; they had a great sense of humor and it was such a pleasant surprise! I appreciate good sarcasm since it’s not that often you come across i ...more
Just the perfect breather that I needed.
Very different from the usual romcoms mainly because of the age of the lead characters - mid forties. Which brought about a kind of maturity and sensibility to the story given how they were already successful in their professional lives and had some idea of their own selves . Unlike the romance stories about the people in their 20s or 30s where they are in college or just starting a new job and figuring out their place in the world.
So with the age lendin ...more
So, let’s dive into this charmer, with a quick recap. The character pictured on the cover of the book is Ruth ...more
I have now read 3 Rich Amooi novels. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with It’s Not PMS, It’s You, even though I enjoyed his previous stories. :) In “It’s Not PMS, It’s You!” the main female character, Ruth, is a smart, very focused, successful woman working in a tense and highly pressured business setting approaching that final rung at the top of her employers’ corporate “ladder.” While returning from a ...more
