Maid for Me 



I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge, and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews. 

My twelfth review is of Maid for Me - a fun YA romantic comedy...

About Maid for Me

Feisty Mina Lin waltzes on glass shards when she lands a job as billionaire Jaiden Daniels's maid. What happens when Jaiden hires her to become his pretend girlfriend? Pretending to be in love with the hot Rich Boy is hard, when Mina's heart only beats for her boy next door, Kiterin Forrests. What happens when Mina doesn't know what her heart wants and a crazy Stalker is after Jaiden's life, and the only person who can save him is Mina?

Find out in Maid for Me, starring Mina Lin, an ambitious, silly, funny, and talented Asian-American heroine who has even developed her own fighting styled called Mina-Jitsu. A fast-paced debut novel for young adults, by Kat Lieu. Filled with hilarious dialogue, suspense, sparkling wit and imagination-- a romance novel packed with action and humor!

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! 

Maid for Me is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk
