Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The stunning Prince, who draws all the attention in the vicinity–

–and the Earl’s daughter, Sharina Clydea, the average student.

…At first, I thought I was uninterested in men.

However, I was soon proven wrong when I met a plain and brooding bookworm in the school backyard.

–Riol Glen; the third son of a poor Baron who lived in the countryside.

Nevertheless, he never took me seriously, no matter how bold my attack was.

Moreover, the prince of this country suddenly called out to me for some reason;

“For you to not be interested in me… heh. aren’t you an interesting one?” He said.

It’s a romance story involving a girl who chases after her love despite all the rejections.

I love this so much, it’s lighthearted, soft, and gives you just the right amount of fluffiness, but it isn’t just wholesome. There’s drama, annoyance, deceit, and the author makes them work together so well!! 10/10 one of my favorites ever!

Soo refreshing.. This story got me so hooked with it's cuteness and annoying prince. Literally half of the time I read it just to see Shari and riol lovey dovey and the other half just to see the bad ending of that prince and his SUPER annoying attendant. Loved the MC, so honest and genuine with her feelings for Riol and Riol oblivious to his feelings but still being so nice and cute and idk..

A wonderful, fluffy story! The MC is not a dense/ oblivious girl but someone who knows exactly what she wants and pursues him, no holds barred.

The ML may come off as indifferent but is actually pretty protective about her and does his best, on his own way.

The villain is the Prince who should just go and die. Grr, he sees only what he wishes to see. So, when MC rejects him, it turns into a 'she-is-trying-to-get-my-attention' instead of 'f*cker-go-away.'

Best part? ML is a genius but not powerful/ strong. Whereas the... more>> prince, like typical shoujo hero, is actually OP. AND STILL, the ML manages to not only win against him but also



Story - 10/10

Translator - 10/10 <<less

A decent novel about the heroine who got the prince eyes and become a princess---no, this novel is not about that.

I love how this novel is'nt like the usual heroine/villainess troupe. This is pretty interesting for a short novel, with her fluffy but kinda straightforward ways to hook her man, the nerdy boya.

By the way I want to stomp on that prince face.

A charming tale of a dorky MC and ML. It was cute to watch them in action. Also one of the more frustrating antagonists to watch, which makes the ending more satisfying.

So far, this is absolutely adorable.

I feel that it’s quite different to the other Noble-Romance novels as the main character is absolutely and undoubtedly in complete detestation for the First Prince. She hates him; with every fibre of her being, and it’s so entertaining to read.

It’s fluffy and cute~ I recommend reading since it’s quite a short one!

At first, I thought this was a 5 star material. But the MC is just such a pushover that she cannot express her convictions and ideas to either the prince or Rosalind and keeps hemming and hawing like a typical japanese shoujo protagonist. Gone are the days when such an MC was acceptable. I will throw this into my "not sure" pile, but before doing that I'll leave this review here.

Ahh ol stalker prince is not one of those cute “I have watched you from far away” shojo stalker princes. No~ He’s a thick faced rude baka. (In a bad not redeemable way) Nobody likes a high handed food thief.

The main character girl is sweet and cheerful and I quite like her. She knows what she wants and goes for it. The fact that she clearly finds the prince annoying antics s*upid makes her even more enjoyable.

As for Riol. He’s great! I think I might like him as much as... more>> MC does. He’s cool, funny and witty.

I’m sure many people are concerned about who the ML is...


I skimmed the ending with my poor Japanese and it appears Riol is the end game!

This novel is kinda refreshing.

It's your typical "Heroine falls in love with someone and after suffering through some hardships became happy ever after" story and, at the same time, it isn't.

A intriguing story with a MC (Sharina) out of the ordinary and a brilliant ML. Fluffy. Their relationship is too much sugar... keep your insulin close. lol.

But you also need to keep alert about the annoying bugs that insist on flying around...

... more>>

I'm obviously talking about Leonarcisist... oh sorry, I mean Leonarcishit... eh? I did it again? Well I suppose that if I call him s*upid Prince everyone will understand. lol

Unfortunately, THAT isn't the only bug. We have Edward and Rosalind (the entire 'Rose Garden', maybe?) as well.


Well, the novel is pretty good for a change in pace, so I highly recommend it. <<less

Super cute !! The protagonist isn't that much of a pushover as azuron had said. She declines the arrogant prince's advances, only accepting when she is required to because of their statuses. She is a super optimistic girl who tries her hardest to get the ML's affection (which she acquires pretty easily actually xD).

While the prince annoys me to no end, the MC and ML pure diabetes :')

A refreshing tilt on the otome-game-style aristocracy genre, where the MC is honest, strong, and doesn't yield to the handsome jerk of a prince character. Her persistent dedication to Riol was super endearing as well. Was hoping to see more of Riol's dere side in the extras at least, but alas he is so full of tsun keke.

Hmm. I feel like I've written a review before, but somehow it got deleted (or maybe I just didn't). But, yeah. I'm here and I'm gonna lay down a summary and my opinions about it. I would've given this a 3.5, but novelupdates doesn't allow that.

Unlike other stories that emphasize falling in love or getting together with people with a high position, the MC in this story falls in love with a poor baron's son from the countryside despite being a duke's daughter. This caught my eye straight away because... more>> I thought it's very interesting. Stories about getting together with the crown prince or the duke are very overdone to the point that I feel iffy about it. And so, this story is like a breath of fresh air to me.

MC's personality is one where she professes her love 24/7 and chases after the ML without getting tired. Her head only contains the ML and nothing else. On the other hand, ML is very low-key, calm, and collected. It's very interesting seeing how his personality changes over time. Instead of pushing the MC away for being annoying, he opens up a lot more and gets warmer towards the MC. Still, I don't get how the MC got head over heels for him over a tiny little reason and gets so obsessed towards him...

But then, a story isn't a story until there's a villain. Correct, the villain is the crown prince who is very narcissistic and isn't willing to back down until he gets what he wants. He continues to chase after MC because in his mind, everyone should be in love with him (because duh, he's THE crown prince...). VERY annoying. Speaking of, the side characters are damn annoying. Like, I just want to punch them through the screen.

The story is very well done. The pace isn't too fast nor too slow and isn't filled with too many fillers so it gets straight to the point. A perfect light read if you don't want too long of a story. The ending is also very satisfying, we get to see the fruit of MC's hard work (fufufufu :3).

Final verdict: It's okay, I'm not too crazy about this story. Mainly it's the MC's personality that might come across as too much sometimes, but everything else is okay. <<less

Woa! That was short yet sweet. It's kinda refreshing that the ML was not some high ranking arrogant noble. MC and Ml's interaction was pure. I wish their lovey dovey phase (in a relationship) could have been shown in the ending/extra.

Side characters that were on the prince's side were annoying as hell because they are too shallow omg. The prince... All I can say is that he irritated the sh*t out of me and makes me want to smack his head just to wake him up from his delusions. Arrrgghhh.

Oh... more>> also reading the T/N note was entertaining because that what I also feel on the chapters lolol <<less

Omg omg I love it!!! This MC is my favorite gal for anti-fairytale with royal that she already has this mindset before she fell in love with ml. It so fluff but there are annoying creature around her (cough.. Prince cough..) So it refresh how MC respond to prince which she try to tell him that she really have no interest at him.

Ml, my favorite character because he actually say something that plot hole that which might happen in fairy tale (romance with prince trope)

It really fluff and make... more>> me smile and laughing until prince cockroach won't died! 5 chapter to go as current I wrote this review.

5 stars for so cute couple and fluff plot story which wonderful to break from heavy plot novel <<less

This kind of story is brilliant and a bit annoying to readers because of either the MC or the characters who are the villains.

And I do want others to read this.

So to clarify why is because how the story is structured that the author decided how the plot of story follows.

... more>> The MC is an airhead but she's not s*upid. She has never been swayed by emotions up until she meet the ML.

ML was never describe as universally handsome (except MC). Others don't seemed to see him that way. However I love this MC because how devoted and smart he is. Which is unusual if I'm being honest. In shoujo or Otomo to be exact it's either the villain or the prince. And one or two have either similar looks or personality with a bit of twist which is fine. What is unique this how the ML is finding resolutions under harsh conditions.

These conditions you will find on the story and the author always mentions this. This conditions are also why the MC is having a hard time in fulfilling her goal.

Another that seems to bother the MC and the ML the most is the horrifying mindset that almost all the kingdom nobles seems to stuck in their brains unless you give them brain surgery. That neither the MC and ML can change them up until the climax. The author attempts to alleviate some annoyance brought by these brainwashed individuals by some humor in later chapter and some fluffiness.

It has the okay amount of drama and some lighthearted love that I feel there's not enough extra. Well enough for the the rantings. If my words doesn't convince you then I don't mind. In the future though do try to read it in your leisure time it'll do for a pass time. <<less

Perfectly sweet and oddball rom-com. The villians will have you tearing your hair out and you will cheer for MC and ML to get their happy ending.

This isn't too deep or anything but it doesn't need to be.

Good story. A trope reversal of the "hopeless girl who falls in love with the overbearing prince".

The MCs are quite likeable, but the antagonists and mob are written as being so s*upid and hateful that... well, it's quite effective in making you invested in wanting to see them fall, but it's a bit too unbelievable.

The story is quite short. You could consider that a good thing as there's not much filler, but I find myself wanting more. Hopefully the author comes out with another story soon.

Good show.

Such simple yet sweet and fluffy story.

While Sharina and Riol are such a sweet with tsukkomi couple, the story itself is appetizing not only with their good families, friend Ange, and also with disappointing characters like the crown prince, group of fiancess and other side characters.

Thanks to the author n translation group! Applause!

Other comments have mentioned that everybody but the MC and ML have two-dimensional personalities, and they're not wrong.

However, while this would be a major issue in a story that dragged on for 100+ chapters, this story is short enough that they don't become stale: MC is a lovestruck ditz, ML is a tsundere, the Prince is an outrageously campy cliche, and just about everybody else is an idiot, yet it all comes off as charming, rather than totally insipid.

It’s a love story between an pure, love obsessed airhead and a pessimistic realist genius! While MC can get a bit much, I do enjoy the banter between the two and because the ML is 95% tsun and 5% dere, there are plenty of understated shows of his affection for MC to find. MC is also refreshingly clear on how she despises and does not want to be with the prince. For a short story, the plot is decent as well, the climax is absolutely satisfying, and the translator’s drawings... more>> and comments are fun to see.

The negative is that like I said, MC can be a bit much because she has love on her brain 24/7. Everyone besides MC, ML, MC’S Bestie and ML+MC’s families are hideously annoying. The prince and co are paper thin characterization wise, don’t listen and exist solely just to get reprimanded at the end. Because it’s a short story, it’s fine that the antagonists are shallow, but be warned that interacting with them is basically 85% of the story. <<less

Ok read, translation is great. Story perhaps not my kind of thing.

Characters are pretty 2-dimensional. Everyone seems to be lacking some brain cells except for MC and ML.

Plot is very juvenile high school drama. Well, the story is set in a school setting after all. Having said that, it does has its charm. It's an easy and fluffy read that may appeal to some readers.

We're all here for the romance. The MC doesn't hide her obvious infatuations for the ML. While the tsundere and shy ML 'reluctantly' accepts MC's gratitude... more>> initially, we can see that he gradually enjoys her company and is actively concern about her wellbeing. His methods to protect her are very sweet and swoon worthy. Surprisingly, I don't find the Prince as detestable as I thought. Annoying yes, but not entirely evil (not yet?). He acts like an immature spoilt brat and I just feel like laughing at his silliness.

The ML is the biggest reason why I continue reading as I'm intrigued to see how he of only a lowly baron rank is able to overcome the narcissistic prince. <<less

Cute couple, A+ translator, WTF story.

Combined IQ of background characters is in the negatives. MC is a terrible (terrible) pushover. When I read about Leonardo di Creepio I just want to gag. What is consent?

Attendant guy is a creeeep. Hope he gets run over by a carriage.
