She's active on wattpadd; it's hypothetically possible the reviews are from her fans there. (It's likely that her reviews are from fans there.)

As someone who reads in those genres--not that one specifically, but close enough--the writing strikes me as tolerable but nothing noteworthy. Yes, it's over-the-top purple prose and heavy on the smut, but for the genre, that's normal and wanted. It could really use a proofreader/grammar-check edit pass, which means it probably needs a story edit pass as well, but I have no problem believing she has a couple-dozen devoted fans who love reading every word she puts out.
Tolerable? Are we using the same dictionary? I don't know what language this book was written in but it reads like a machine translation, and was probably dire before that.
I don't need a publisher to protect me from dreck like this, one glance is enough for me to be absolutely sure it is a waste of electrons. Even more astounding, the author expects people to pay to read this bilge. It would be hard to persuade me to read this for potfuls of money. Probably impossible.
