About the Author
K’Anne Meinel (pronounced Kay Ann My Null), an American author was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and emerged full formed behind a keyboard, sometime in the 1960's, where she still resides today after a seventeen year detour through Southern and Central California on the beach. Her first novel, SHIPS written in 2003 was to be the beginnings of many masterpieces. Bringing her characters to life in the pages of her books she discovered a real talent for writing romances. She is the best-selling author of the novel REPRESENTED and her other works include LONG DISTANCE ROMANCE, GERMANIC, and TIMED ROMANCE. Her novella Sapphic Surfer has been a best-seller and others such as Sapphic Cowboi, Sapphic Cowgirl, and Ghostly Love have received acclaim. In 2011 she started her infamous MALICE series including an anti-hero/killer by the name of Alice. Writing well-researched romance novels with humor and a bit of spice she plans to travel some more to fuel her ever hungry keyboard with many more places she hasn’t already been in her books!

Now, to my pet peeve...... grammatical errors and incorrect use of words. Why is it that so many 'published' authors are unable to distinguish between your and you''re. This author also seems to not know the word have as part of past tense. In all her books she uses OF in place of HAVE. Example.... "she could of told". Where did she learn to speak? These types of errors are very distracting and detract from a decently conceived plot. I keep buying her novels hoping someone (such as a proofreader) would finally show up and point out these glaring issues. Get it together, please. You call yourselves authors yet have little relationship with syntax and grammar..... and don't mention spelling.
There are so many criticisms of the book beyond the way it's being marketed.
This version of the book had many simple spelling and grammatical errors. Things like using "would of" in place of "would have" or run-on sentences that have lost their way, contributed to making this an unpleasant read. But I could have put simple mechanics aside if the story-telling had been engaging. Instead we are given cliches and stereotypes in place of characters. Everyone who meets Reese is Amazed At Her Stunning Height! Astonished At Her Amazing Beauty! and Stunned At Her Astonishing Brains! Every single time she meets someone we are given this little Amazed/Astonished/Stunned dance. Sometimes more than once for same person.
And finally, it seems like a lot of the attitudes she ascribes to background characters are rather anachronistic: "prissy Brits" not wanting to touch "these darker skinned people...", or that everyone is Astonished(!) that Reese can manage a large corporation or that a lesbian couple should be afraid to hold hands around their family, much less in the community at large.
I honestly would have expected better writing from a high school student. Oh well, live and learn. And I guess I've learned not to buy from this author again.
