Love Your Frenemies

Love Your Frenemies

Kimmy Domingo was the kind of girl everyone hated and envied -- until her fiancé dumped her a week before their wedding. Soon after, she quit her job, hopped on a plane, and just hid from everyone who knew her. A year later and she's back in Manila to be maid of honor at a wedding she can't miss.

Kimmy's home because she's ready to start over, but she also knows that some people at that wedding were responsible for the mess her life turned out to be. The first step to recovery? Cutting off the ones who caused her troubles to begin with: her best friend and her first love.

Buy it now from Amazon ($0.99 US, $2.99 Asia-Pacific) and Smashwords ($0.99 anywhere)!

You don't need a Kindle to read this! Just install any of Amazon's free Kindle apps on your device of choice (PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Blackberry, Windows Phone 7) and you're ready to go. Smashwords has an HTML version that allows you to read the book on any web browser!

Just to get a few things out of the way:
- If you're reading this and think the name of the lead character is familiar, yes, it is because she is that bitch from my first novel.
- You can go ahead and read it even if you haven't read My Imaginary Ex. (Different time, mostly different people.)

I will be sending free copies of this to people who bought Fairy Tale Fail when it was $1.89 US ($3.89 Asia-Pacific). If this is you, send me an email, maybe with a proof of purchase if we've never interacted before, and tell me which email address to gift it to and which format you prefer it in!

The cover was designed by my husband, Michael A.R. Co. That lovely (in my opinion) background color is something we call "chocolate-box red."

Glad that I'm finally getting this book out. :) With this, I close two personal writing challenges, and can now concentrate on whatever's next. This is for you, my Evil Stepsisters.


  1. It's out! Wow, that was fast. Congrats Mina and happy book birthday to Love Your Frenemies. :)

  2. So chocolate box red is what it's called. Love it! *buying it now*

  3. Just bought it! Thanks, Mina, and congratulations!

  4. I LOVE THE COVER!!! Must. Have. THIS!

  5. I want trilogy in book form.

  6. Mina, what a wonderful book. I'm kinda liking the story line of this more than 'My Imaginary Ex'. Who would have thought that the perfect antagonist 'Kimmy' can be such a good protagonist as well.

    However I can't help but feel 'bitin'. I mean, I get the whole point of Kimmy 'loving her frenemies', so to speak but I'm a big fan of romance, and I felt that it needs more 'Kimmy-Manolo' love story. The ending felt like a beginning of a new story. A story I REALLY want to know.

    However, there's a thing that really baffles me in this story... where was Manolo when Kimmy was planning her wedding?! I mean, what did he do when he Kimmy announced she was getting married?! Was he planning to just sit back and do nothing?! The love of his life was about to marry someone else... was the 'Zack-Jasmine' reunion an answered prayer?! What if it didn't happen...was he going to live through his life knowing the girl he loves is married to someone else?!

    Anyway, as I said GREAT story. I really love it. I actually put it on my iPod and I re-read it every now and then. If I can buy an ebook copy of 'No Strings Attached' and 'My Imaginary Ex', I would! And I would re-read it every now and then too :)) You make such beautiful stories and the best thing about it is that readers feel engaged and can actually relate to the characters.

    I'm a big fan of 'Kimmy-Manolo' and I hope I get to know how their journey together unfold. Third installment? Fingers crossed.

  7. Lore, this comment is cool and wonderful, thank you. Sorry about the whole 'bitin' thing. :)

    Was he planning to just sit back and do nothing?!

    In his defense, he did make a big move. :)

    And, he just strikes me as the kind of guy who wouldn't let a marriage contract get in the way of what he wants, if it came to that, you know? (He's angas that way haha.)

    Thank you for dropping by and commenting and having this particular reaction too -- it's so encouraging. Especially since this one was so difficult to write.
