Apoca[hot]lips - Ruth Roth Series Book 2.

Up yours! It’s a ballsy attitude for a child, and one that served Ruth (Roth) Gold well back then. It’s one she desperately needs to revive now.

After her divorce, Ruth finds the love of her life: Herself. And she’s in a happy place ... until a geeky, sexy, god-like man fronts up and fulfils her forgotten little-girl fantasies. He tells her she’s ‘The One’.
Talk about screwing everything up!

A romance with him seems so wrong, yet—mmm, mmm— feels so deliciously right.
With those around her inflaming her doubts, though, Ruth remains trapped in a do-I-don’t-I mindset. But she rallies! She kind of breaks up with her carping mother, and succumbs to Mr Hotlips’ charms.

This Romeo ’n’ Juliet-esque couple engages in epic battles with the knockers, and triumphantly rattles their cages (from where, it appears, they’ve all escaped).
Still, Ruth’s man can’t vanquish the conflicts in her mind. Or the ones in his own. And when an earth-shattering revelation causes him to give her grief, the question on her hot lips is no longer ‘Can our love survive?’ It’s ... ‘Do I want it to?’

Paula Houseman’s Odyssey in a Teacup is epically defiant, bold, brazen, painful, hilarious, soul-fortifying, and a must-read for anyone who has ever dared (or hoped) to look at themselves in the mirror and ask the question, How in the hell have I survived? Crazy-brilliant!
Stephanie L Harper Author
Odyssey in a Teacup is an uplifting, hilarious, yet at times, sobering story of how bias, religious and superstitious mores, bullying and self-doubt can hinder personal growth, but also how the love of close friends, a sense of humour, and above all, determination can help us to embark on new adventures throughout our life.

Ruth Roth takes on the world! This feisty little girl who becomes a spirited woman takes us on a rip-roaring journey on which she takes no prisoners! This cleverly written irreverent book allows us to share Ruth’s trials and tribulations with incredulity and laughter and, in the end, witness her personal growth.

‘‘Paula Houseman is at it again—wielding her razor-sharp wit in Apoca[hot]lips, a romantic comedy with twists and turns! Unputdownable.
Gabriella Kovac, Bestselling author
'Paula Houseman’s Apoca[hot]lips is the book to get; prepare for hours of laughter as well as a book that will stick with you long after you turn the last page ... I honestly have not laughed so hard or felt so connected to a story. Absolutely brilliant!
