Omg. How do I express myself after reading this? Lol idk but this story whew 😅 got me in emotionally. Well yeah I’m an emotional person but anyways, reading the story and focusing on Camilla situation, she’s really a strong woman. I love her for that. All the things she’s been through and the frustration that she had but never cried for once about it, got me admiring her character. Cuz you dead ass know I did cry in her stead. Also this story is amazing in its own way,... more>> but I forgot this was a slow romance so it was killing me deep inside 😭😂 but anyone who’s reading this should read it. Recommend it 👍 And thank the translator for translating this story 🤧 <<less

The synopsis doesn't do this story justice; it seems like the story will be a bunch of light-hearted fluff. However, both the MC and ML have issues that they slowly decide to work through for their own sakes (rather than for the unhealthy shoujo justification of doing anything for their potential love interests). Surprisingly, there are also some mysteries, mostly political, ongoing and alluded to.

In fact, I find the MC and ML back stories rather dark and cried more than once. They're hearts are in the right places!!! I am... more>> eagerly awaiting for the MC to be vindicated and for some hearty face-slapping, but this story could easily go the tragedy route.

Don't get me wrong; although this seems more mature than the typical shoujo, it still hasn't crossed over to josei territory. There are more light-hearted moments than dark, the latter was naturally increased as we get to know more about the characters. The author does an excellent balancing act between actual plot and romantic moments. The side characters are also interesting and their interactions with the MC are superb.

Definitely recommend and good luck to the translator/s! <<less

This novel is not for people who has only been reading fluffy stories. With a narrow mindset, you'll hate the MC's personality, and the pacing of the novel. But you know what? It works.

Her personality is justified, since she is an aristocrat (and many more, but find that out yourself), and works with the pacing.

"Ehh, this novel is so slow why is there still no improvements between her and the male lead? Why is she being treated like that? Why does the male lead doesn't do anything about it?"

Excuse me,... more>> are we even reading the same novel? Do you even know her personality? Have you even met people?? This novel is quite realistic, if I may say so myself. It works for me, and for anyone who has gotten tired of the cliche "exiled, and then woww, immediately liked by so many and even pitied by possible love interests".

This novel respects the characters so much and the natural chemistry between them just makes the story extraordinary. Personally, I never read anything like this, since main characters with an unlikable personality are really hard to come by, and if you do see one, in the middle they just start being kind or something, as if their character was all nothing but a lie.

Their interactions are natural and are to be expected, especially with the MC's stronghead nature. Basically, if you want an emotionally strong character, try this. It does well in showing that there is more to people despite their stubborn self, and as annoyed as I was at first, I couldn't help but love the MC as I come to understand her.

Definitely a new experience for me, wish there was more like this. <<less

It's good, yeah, but it has one big problem.

As of chapter 41, it's been the MC getting unfairly treated nonstop with little-to-no payoffs. That's just under a third of the entire story with all of the build-ups for a good face-slap or two, but without the actual face-slapping.

Either the MC backs down to prove that she isn't a bad guy, or her husband-to-be does all of the work for her.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no reverse harem. So BIG plus. (Harem implies that all leads are in love with MC, not just "being around them"). A love "V" is hardly a harem.

Yeah, its pretty harsh. Especially the MC. I won't spoil it too much, but to expect lots and lots of persecution. I mean wholly shit, does it get you frustrated. You understand it. It is realistic. Rumors are bad but, this just hits home with how really frustrating it can get. Don't expect much catharsis.

But that's all... more>> part of real life. In fact, compared to every other "villainess" story out there, this is simply the most realistic portrayal of a human possible. Why? Because you can feel that the MC is a real complex character, and not just a 2D caricature. And she doesn't have any special powers. I mean like none. She can literally be the "normal" person sitting next to you. No isekai, no OP magic, none like that. Just a straight up ordinary person, with a bit more rash. Everything you would expect a teenage girl to be.

Expect slow romance development. But that's a plus. Its important that its slow. I'm reading this for people falling in love until the point they officially get together.

Expect realistic portrayals of human nature or behavior (especially for the MC). I can't stress this enough. She is the most realistic portrayal of a human ever, in any series. The author has a better understanding of human nature, and a less romanticized view on "love". Because yeah, in real life it takes months or years to "let go" or some times never.

The ending is expected, but doesn't disappoint. Its the ride that is most important. But the great ending doesn't help. It certainly isn't a weak ending. I think it handles relationships pretty well.

I recommend this 100%, 10/10, re-read again.

You've read the rest, now read the best. <<less

It likely isn't a story I should be crying about but I couldn't stop my overflowing tears. The situation the MC is in is completely undeserved and yet she is still able to face the world; it might not be much but that takes a lot of courage when the whole world hates you.

I really like her character she may come off as harsh due to her sharp words and face but she is genuinely a good person. Whatever she did to the heroine was in a way defense and... more>> because she was blinded by love. She had all sorts of things pinned on her as she became a scapegoat and her own parents abandoned her. But I digress, the best thing about this novel is the character growth and how the characters interact with each other.

They all grow as people and as they grow the way they interact reflects that. The love between the MC and ML isn't a love at first sight situation. It grows slowly and takes root firmly. This is likely why they seem really human.

Then again this is just my opinion but I really recommend picking this story up! <<less

Skip or skim my review as usual if you'd like to read this with completely fresh eyes (which I actually highly, highly, recommend!)

This is absolutely amazing. It's a far cry from my usual tastes in depressing, heavily politically novels, and there hasn't been any massive tragedy as of yet. And still this novel is absolutely amazing. It excels in its genre and I grew to love it for the world building - the magic, the light, the kingdom -, the story - it takes a commonly overused plot, tossed... more>> out any reincarnation, and made it entirely believable - and, most of all, the characters. For the other common tropes it uses (misunderstandings, appearances, bullying), the execution is astoundingly good.

If there's one way to win over my interest, it's how the characters are written. And Camilla did exactly that; she stole my heart. Both of the main leads aren't carbon-copied of their other "Villainess Nobles" novels, and they have so much more depth to them than what they appear on the surface. Alois isn't defined by his weight, and certainly not by his appearance. Camilla has faults that drags her down, and she's that much more human. The way the events are written makes you feel for her. But while I've felt angry and bitter and proud on her behalf, I never felt pity for this protagonist. Instead, I feel admiration. Even the romance is a slow-cooked, believable one.

What's more is that the characters change. And rather than being given it freely or forcing it out through threats and fear, Camilla earns respect. That makes everything so much better.

I may not have finished reading this yet, but I took a peak at the ending of the web novel in JP. Without a doubt, I'd recommend this if you want to read something both relaxing and relatable. <<less

Got interested after reading prologue 2 to see that there was more to the ML's circumstances. From there, decided to take a peak at the rest of the chapters with MTL and actually got hooked lol.

Spoiler below of some things I thought were interesting:

... more>>
Spoiler

At first I thought I thought Camilla would just be a spoiled but foolishly innocent daughter but, from the story progression, she starts to grow as Alois and her learn more about one another and help move on from a past deeper than from where the novel starts. If I read correctly, even some of the characters I thought I would hate had a redeemable quality to them which was quite pleasant.

If you're into characters with more than what's on the surface, this author's story of a love that sprouts from understanding might be for you.

Yes, I rated if 5 stars and yes, I've finished reading it (except the two extra chapters). This is one, if not the best villainess novels out there.

If you want to start the rabbit hole that is villainess stories, you'd come to the right place.

Way too slow. I'm not talking about their relationship but the progress of the novel. In the latest chapter, she's hasn't prove anything which is very annoying. She is still being completely looked down on and she can't even clarify herself, so what's the point of here so called revenge if she's not doing anything to change it. The duke is even useless. He can't even fully support the MC. He can't even stop his servants from mistreating their supposed to be Mistress. I mean thats the least thing you... more>> could do but mehh how dumb <<less

I absolutely love this novel. Great plot, great characterization, great world building, etcetera. I love how the relationship between Camilla and Alois starts out rough but slowly smoothens as they gradually understand each other. I love how Alois is not your typical handsome male lead but still managed to capture Camilla's heart and I really love their struggles to understand each other. There's much more I want to write but long story short: This novel is great and I really recommend that you read this. That's all.

It's surprisingly good.

First of all, I just want to refute Thousandswor's review and say this is not a reverse harem story.

There's no harem at all.

Secondly, Camilla, our MC, is one of the most lovable MC in this genre. She's not the cunning kind nor the dense kind. She simply do things passionately. And she's a real tough cookie. I was expecting a 1D-ish cookie cutter MC, and was pleasantly surprised that this aint the case at all. Camilla is a multifaceted, flawed heroine. Her personality feels real, and the... more>> her struggle is relatable to some extend. You'll be rooting for her.

Thirdly, One reviewer point out that the "there's no face slapping" and "the duke couldn't even protect her from his maids". That's because this novel really isn't about face-slapping or being an untouchable goddess of revenge by hugging a big thight. Gossips are nasty, and I love how the author potrays it's snowballed effect to our heroine. Because of that, the romance is a slow-burn. The ML is not all powerful--heck, the MC doesn't even really need saving. There would be some frustating moment, but that's exactly the point. Her situation is pretty much believable.

Fourth, I honestly thought that this novel would be full of body shaming. I gritted my teeth through several earlier chapter, and after finishing it, I'm more of the opinion that it's just a product of the MC's flawed belief and character. It's because, the one who really see the ML's constitution as a problem was just the MC, others doesn't really see much problem in that.

When reading a vilainess noble girls stories, I want to see a passionate, and/or borderline obsessive MC since it's basically a story about obsession to the point of ruination. It's nice to see that this novel, although mild and totally not to the point of "obsession", pretth much deliver. But I have to warn you--plot holes are still there, and some of the chapters are honestly not necessary.

Read this if you're looking for a light-hearted story. And yes, the frustations are still in the category of ''light-hearted", so you won't bawl your eyes out.. <<less

I was super skeptical of this story at first. Reading the summary, it sounded so shallow - villianess reforms a fat dude? What? But look at those high ratings!

Like the summary, this story is one where you start out taking all the characters as one-dimensional shallow beings and then end up realizing how deep they all go. It's also one of the best cases of foreshadowing I've seen in a light novel - when I got to the end, I just sat back stunned at how tightly woven all the... more>> plot threads were. Right from the very beginning, I could think of things I just accepted as "oh, that's how it is" that were actually hinting at the conclusion.

It's only flaw as a series is that unlike every other villianess novel in existence, Camilla just cannot catch a break. In that way it's also one of the more realistic depictions of a villianess - instead of having lots of people who understand her or being some transmigrated soul, she's just a hot-tempered regular girl who can't win debates because she gets so worked up and is easily manipulated because of that. You end up really sympathizing with her as she works toward her happy ending. <<less

I like the main leads. Their interaction and personalities are very realisitc. Since I don't know the whole story yet can't say much but all I can say that so far this story seems different from usual and the MC is really awesome in her own accord. An intense girl who refuses to bow down to others and continues to push through regardless of the hopeless situation she is in. Her personality certainly is realistic as can be seen from her monologue. The fat duke also seems like a crafty... more>> fox although he tries to hide it. <<less

I really tried reading this. I really did. But there is a reason as to why I avoid reading otomes where the protagonist has or was about to become a true villainess. My stomach just could not handle the amount of pain I personally experienced from reading this novel. For those like me who prefer the perfect “balance” in their stories, this novel is not for you. I don’t like stories with pure fluff or stupidity either, but the amount of stupidity and hate that continued to come in without... more>> enough hand tingling romance to back it up was too much for me. Personally any more reading this and I will literally throw my phone to the ground.

Yes, I know that I shouldn't be writing something like this based on pure emotions. But when a novel has made me ever more infuriated than the other novel in which I know is very bad *cough Kumo Desu-ga cough*, but at least made me want to make a proper and logical review on, it says something. I’ll probably edit this entire thing later once I calm down, but god. I don’t care if a novel has the most tragic elements in the world, but everything needs a balance. Otherwise not only will the characters themselves will feel the pain, but so will the readers too, but in a bad way. It’s like trying to read poorly translated novels as hard as you can, but because of the quality your level of enjoyment is at a all time minimum. <<less

A great story, an awesome plot, great characters, well designed story but more than anything it felt.. Humane.

Getting used to the web novel industry means in general getting used to the unusual, to the fantastic, to the amazing. But in truth, you get farther away from what it means to be human. Those that develop characters like they describe some robots with perfect qualities and perfect mindsets often forget about the charm of a human who learns from mistakes and evolves.

This story seemed to be your run of the mill... more>> story about a character that failed to become the heroine and instead turned into the villain. Well.. Run of the mill as everyone expected the protagonist to still turn into a heroine. The interesting thing was how much everyone beside the main character changed while the prideful yet humane protagonist remained the same, true to their own desire without becoming overly proud of their noble origins. This instead turned into a turning point in the quality of the novel as the story didn't become a fantastic one, but instead a realistic one, one that does not amaze but teach others about what it means to truly look upon oneself without ignoring the faults or the mistakes.

In the end while the protagonist was the cherry on top of the cake, one important slice was
Spoiler

the true villain, her sister Therese, a person who seemed to be both the true victim and the one most guilty of being the mastermind behind the fall of the protagonist.

I will certainly re-read this novel at some point, and I will gladly recommend it as everyone has more flaws than they would like to admit. <<less

There are a lot of misunderstandings in this novel. Gossips ruin people's lives and this novel is a spot-on representation for that. The MC is a pure, simple, loving, brazen girl and she's a victim of this manipulative people around her.

I just wish she would mature and be more clever after all that's happened in her life, but that's just me. :) I think the male lead needs more screen time and photos after his physical development. I was actually excited for that as the MC keeps saying it over... more>> and over again throughout the story. But, oh well.

The story and the people's point of view are well explained. You really need to read the entire novel because there are a lot of twists and turns that is integral to the story development. I just love the thrill!

All in all, it's a good read. <<less

I can't believe that I almost missed such an interesting story. I was just coincidently pass this novel and tried to read this novel for fun.

I'm literally in tears as I'm writing this review. At first, I came into the novel with the intention of doing some light reading, but it became so much more than that.

Camilla, our protagonist, is really such a sweet girl at heart. She makes me want to root for her no matter what she does. Camilla may not the be the smartest or the most capable protagonist, but she most certainly has her own charms. Even when she suffers, she never gives up on herself and even manages to inspire... more>> hope in others. Gaaah, I just love her so much!!

Our male lead is also not a simple character. He has so many layers to him that through the novel, I felt like I was in the process of peeling an onion lol. I won't say too much about him for fear of spoiling, but he and Camilla are a great match, and I honestly adore him to bits as well- the way he develops alongside Camilla is just heartwarming to read!

I have so much to say about the other characters, but if I continue I'm just going to blab on forever. Moving onto the actual plot and pacing, there are no complaints on my end. I've read reviews that dislike the pacing of the story, but I feel like that's because they're waiting for something major to happen, which isn't a very good idea.

So if you're planning on reading this just for the satisfaction of seeing Camilla bring her enemies down to their knees, don't. That's not the point of this story. I'm not going to tell you what exactly that point is, but if you decide to pick up the novel and see it to the end, I'm sure you'll be able to come up with your own conclusion.

You won't regret it, I promise! <<less
