I’m Not Doing This With A Friend

She enticed the successor to the Duke of Lisianthus.

He sneakily grabbed my hand.

I sighed and twisted my hand out of his grip. “We can’t do this as friends.”

“Are you ashamed of holding my hand even once, Leen?”

No matter how much I think about what Carsion said, with his face showing ‘I barely held one hand’, it doesn’t seem that way.

“I can do more with you, Leen.”

Those words seemed to ring in my head, but the blue pupils were headed in a different direction – you can’t even look me in the eye. I mean, it’s not convincing to say those kind of words with such a shy face, you punk.

* * * * *

The Duchess took something out from the purse in her arms.

“Do you need money? Then take this money and break up with Carsion; take it without hard feelings.”

I stared silently into the thick pockets that the Duchess gave. Then I tapped my chin and gave her a serious look. “We’re not dating, we’re friends. Do you want me to cut off my friendship with Carsion from today?”

Will the Duchess get up from her seat, trembling and slap my face? Or are you going to spray water on me?


“Ye-yes?” My face slowly blushed with embarrassment.

What’s with her unexpected reaction?!

i literally love this novel so much omg. This is my first time putting a review but I felt it was necessary. Even though there are so few chapters the plot starts from the very beginning. Carsion is so adorable and he has my whole heart. Leen is by far one of my favorite female leads she funny and relatable and she doesn't allow others to step on her. ALSO SHE IS NOT NAIVE AND BLATANTLY DUMB. I was so tired of purposely blind fl's who don't see others emotions... more>> towards them but thank the high heavens our wonderful leen isn't like that at all. Also there are no unnecessary miss understandings like things get solved thank god. I cant wait for how much more is going to happen between the characters. <<less

Please read this series! It is so fun and I love a blushing ML who has actual feelings. He also has parents and an interesting family dynamic! All the characters are fun and there’s no annoying subplots or needless drama. It’s a really well written work that isn’t an Isekai like every other web novel. I’ve obsessed with keeping up with updates and re-reading this series! If you’re someone who gets a lot of second-hand embarrassment from novels, this one is super safe and doesn’t make me cringe every other... more>> chapter. <<less

From the first chapter, the FL is already thinking about their future. She knows that they are not on equal standing so she just wanted to have a memory with him even tho the both of them will be hurt. She's not a female lead who relies on the ML. I also love it cuz the ML (is a yandere-) fell in love with the FL first. I love how the ML blushes. I also lovee how the FL is not dense. She already realized that the ML has feelings... more>> for her and she knows that being with him is impossible cuz she's a commoner and he's the future duke. I just want to say I LOVE IT!!! (It may be too early to judge but I hope this novel will continue to be enjoyable in the next chapters~) <<less

The FL is so straightforward and IS NOT DENSE!! The ML is so crazy in love which is really my cup of tea. This one is a good light read, give it a try!!

I’m really loving this story so far! The ML is so cute every time he gets so shy and embarrassed when the FL teases him. The FL comes off as deliberately ignoring obvious clues but I see it as she knows how she wants her life to go and sticks to that path. If she doesn’t want something in her life she chooses how much contact she has with it. But she does seem to have a weak spot for the ML.
The ML is a whole other bundle that’s slowly being revealed but I find it pretty entertaining when his level of possession and shyness come into play every time he’s in front of the FL. Cant wait to read more!

not sure if it's the author's writing or the translator's shortcoming but the writing feels soulless. The scenes are absolutely cute. The characters even cuter but how the "voice" used for the novel feels robotic and lacked passion. It feels like reading someone's class essay.

and it's also very confusing. With how it shifts to third person and then suddenly first person in the exact same sentence. Was this mtl?

anyway, like I said, I like the characters. Their interactions are cute and very kilig but the writer focused too much on... more>> them that we barely know the world that the characters exists in.

while you do get snippets but I feel like this story was written with the intention for it to become a manhwa. Since manhwas don't really need words for you to picture out the world they live in while in writing you must really have to describe to your readers the setting for them to visualize it.

it's similar to how authors in webnovels use onomatopeia instead of just telling us what was making the sound.

for example, instead of saying "the wind howled", they just say "whooooshhh". Which just confirms to me that they just want to write the manhwa.

and this author give me that vibe. So maybe i'll enjoy the manhwa form better than the novel form. Bc honestly, I do like the fl. Her personality is interesting wish she was in a better written story. <<less

Read the raws and the story was absolutely breathtaking. It had moments where I was laughing, crying, and just overall in love with the relationship of the leads. Highly recommend this book to everyone.

I love this novel sooo much!, My top favourite!!, the MC is smart, and the ML is the best!, he understod his feelings fast, and his love for her is adorable, he's only soft for her and she think "that's" his real personality and the rumors are wrong, his parent as well are cute,

I love how he really love her and is trying to win her heart, he's obsessed with her and possessive, even though she's strong enough to protect her self, he keep helping her behind her back,... more>> and the fact that she love to tease him just to see his red ears and face.


I love the scene where he disguise as a boy from her dancing class just so he can be her partner, he's cute!!
