Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mina is a feisty sixteen-year-old who's had to act more like a parent than a teenager. She's in love with her best friend, who just happens to start dating someone on Mina's birthday. But the bad things in her life are a catalyst for finding a new job and a new love. When Mina (famous for her martial arts Mina-Jitsu) becomes a bodyguard for a billionaires son who's being stalked.
I don't normally read YA books, but I was really impressed with this. I was drawn in from page one, rooting for Mina to get what she deserves from life. Well-written, with some great characters and laugh-out-loud moments, I'll definitely be looking forward to the next one! My only complaint is that it wasn't longer because I didn't want it to end!" -Sibel Hodge, Author

What did I love writing about Maid for Me? I love breathing life into Mina Lin. My sister, Eve, says Mina reminds her so much of me. I guess authors do like writing a bit of their personalities in their characters. Unlike Mina, however, I can't render a six-foot tall boy breathless with a formidable headlock...

5.0 out of 5 stars My hat's off to you, Kathleen Lieu! November 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mina Lin is a feisty 16-year-old. After a lunch with her best friend (whom she is in love with) and his surprising new girlfriend, Mina is down in the dumps. But on her special day, she meets her future employer; and not in the best of ways. But Mina needs this job in order to pay of her mother's tremendous gambling debt. Jaiden Daniels is a billionaire's son and money means nothing to him. He has a lot going for him, but suddenly he starts receiving death threats and things get serious. This is when Mina comes in with her Minajitsu and takes the job as Jaiden's maid/fake girlfriend.

I bought this story as a cheap read, and I honestly thought it would just be a little novella. Boy was I wrong! This story had me hooked from the beginning and it didn't disappoint. At some points I literally started laughing out loud because some of the things Mina did reminded me of myself - and some of it was just plain funny! Mina and Jaiden are both strong characters, and Mina's relationships with her family and friends really tell a lot about her. Jaiden is surprising to say the least, and a lot superficial, but I think we'll see a change in him soon. I can't wait to see how these relationships develop, and I really hope that there is a sequel to this book coming out soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Surprise! August 31, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I,too, bought this for the price...not really expecting much
but a little bit of reading at the beach. What a surprise
was in store--excellent read, snappy characters and great dialogue.
Along with a story and characters you just have to root for.
Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your .99. January 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't believe this book is getting good reviews! Not only is the story line completely unbelievable, ( and I'm ready to believe most anything that is well-written) it is hard to wade through sentences that are so poorly constructed you have to re-read them several times to figure out what the author is saying. From mixing tenses (from present to past in the same sentence, sometimes) the dialogue doesn't sound real and the 'plot' is a mess. It reads like it was written by a non-English speaker, or else was translated from another language by a poor translator. Things like naming a city "Uptown" and referring to it at times as "the Uptown", then having to pass through a security gate to get to "North Uptown" are completely off-putting. I'm going to see if I can get my .99 back!

It was an awesome book. Beautifully and hilariously written. My only regret is that I didn't read it sooner.* I would suggest it for teens and those who are teens at heart. It was a beautiful romantic comedy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for those who appreciate good grammar July 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I came on to this page expressly to write this review, I was shocked to see so many people loved this book. I found it trite and implausible, with a convoluted plot and fairly two-dimensional characters. Now, a lot of cheap reads are like this, and I wasn't expecting fine literature. However, the poor grammar and incorrect punctuation drove me up the wall. In many instances sentences simply did not make sense because the wrong verb tense was used, a subjunctive was required, or other elements did not match up. There are a lot of misplaced and missing commas as well. This may seem overly picky, and while some of the errors could merely stem from editing lapses, I do expect a published work to exhibit an understanding of good writing. If you are a person who is not bothered by these issues you may enjoy the book just fine, but anyone who appreciates good grammar skills and attention to plausibility and accuracy (for instance, women often miscarry when they fall on the stairs -- it is medically impossible for a woman to fall two stories onto concrete and have her unborn child be just fine) should steer clear.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huh? January 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Was this written by a 12 year old? If so, good effort! If not, you may need to consider taking some courses in grammar and sentence structure. Don't believe me? Read the first chapter. I'm really surprised this has so many good reviews. Don't pay for it, it's not worth the 99 cents. Not recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Maid For Me September 15, 2012
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition
Boring stilted language and written to appeal to twelve year olds. The usual teen theme of unrequited love and not fitting in combined with the usual irresponsible parent and rich sucker. Wish i could get my money back.

But since this has so many positive reviews I just felt I had to give my two cents. Just to start off I read a lot and for the most part will buy into anything if presented in a way that I could relate to or in a convincing tone. Reading this story all I could think was "The author is trying way too hard." It seemed like the author was forcing the story to go the way she wanted it to go and the story suffered because of that. Events happened way too quickly and the dialog was ridiculous. An example would be "She ran like a cheetah on fire, easily covering a quarter of a mile in less than four minutes." I know the story had way more "WTF" parts and technically there is nothing wrong with the sentence structure but 1/4th of a mile isn't far and many people can run one full mile in 6 minutes. (Really the story is insanely ridiculous but I can't copy and paste and I'd rather not type out every sentence/conversation that didn't work.) I paid .99 cents so I'm not that angry but personally I've read better stories that were free.

If you are looking for any of these situations (below) and can ignore many errors then buy this eBook.
0) Tomboy has some sort of family issue (CHECK)
1) Tomboy has crush on best friend (CHECK)
2) Best friend gets together with popular girl (CHECK)
3) Tomboy runs into handsome, rich, popular guy (CHECK)
4) They get into convoluted situation (CHECK)
5) They become close and rich guy takes care of all her problems (CHECK)
6) Best friend and popular girl get what they deserve (CHECK)
7) Crazy plot twist served upon another crazy plot twist with a side of what in the world just happened (CHECK)

More About the Author

Kat's most current publication is My Cup of Tea: Summer of Love. Read My Cup of Tea here: http://amzn.to/1fKJ4YW

Kat read her first book (a picture book) while potty training at the age of one and half. Reading became an addiction and a must during subsequent potty sessions. Writing as a passion soon followed when Kat was in the fifth grade. She drew a picture storybook, hand-stitched the pages together, and presented it to a class of second graders. The children loved hearing Kat's story and that cemented Kat's love for writing.

Kat wrote My Cup of Tea, Summer of Love during maternity leave. While caring for her newborn, Kat sacrificed nap time and much needed rest in order to write. When her baby slept, she quickly typed away, ignoring carpal tunnel. Now Kat works full-time by day. By night, she's a dedicated mommy and a writer. She hopes to be able to spend more time with her son, Philly Cheese Steak, and write for a living in the near future.

Dreams do come true, when you believe in them and work hard. Many of Kat's dreams have come true and she wishes the same for all her fans and readers.

Kat is also a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a Certified Lymphedema Therapist. She also runs a tween/teen empire, Nummyz Productions. Nummyz Productions creates original Flash games for girls and provides them with a safe community, love advice, free stories, and support. Nummyz Productions publishes books and e-books. Kat's company has also created websites for celebrities of The Young and the Restless (Kate Linder) and Flash games for multi-million dollar company LittleMissMatched.

Nummyz Productions has created tip.rrific.com, dennis-oh.com, dressupgamesjr.com, nummyz.com, and juniordressup.com.
