I'm getting one of those double reincarnation vibes but at the very least the story seems good moderately fat paced with the ML knowing what he wants and have basic crisis response and moving to deal with it (albeit in a r*pey way)

which IS VERY REFRESHING because 400 chapters of misunderstanding where a 5 minute chat would have solved everything aren't to my liking. I have some decent expectations from the author and translator but I'm not setting the bar too high till a few more chapters are released

Unlike other ero novels, this one has a good plot and isn't driven by pure lust and unnecessary, exaggerated plot twists. Whether it's the plot or the ero scenes, everything is written beautifully.

I love the character development of the MC. She doesn't simply go along with the 'plot' (of the otome game) nor does she recklessly try to change her own 'fate'.

The developments aren't cliche! She actually fell in love with the male lead and ... more>>

after learning of her 'past life', she began to distance herself because she's afraid of getting hurt (because in the original 'plot', she will get abandoned). Her thoughts and logic are well written and realistic. She isn't overpowered. She haf experienced tragedy and it, in turn, changed her beliefs and ideology. We watch her as she get over her past and grow and mature.


The MC is very lovable. We get to relate with her through her experiences, and we can see a unique perspective of a woman in love and how she gets over her insecurities.

Albeit short, I'm actually relieved that this didn't get unnecessarily prolonged because it might lessen the quality of the story. Overall a great read, perfect for those readers seeking a great, romance story with a well written smut. (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄) ✩✩✩✩✩ <<less

Liked it a lot. The ML's response to MC distance is quick and ruthless. Yet, he is crazily in love with the MC, unable to bear even the slightest of distance. Translation is good. Smut is also good. MC is good, able to stand up against the heroine. Overall, loved it.

My review will contain my thoughts and personal opinions made as I read through this myself. It may contain slight spoilers, so if you wish to avoid that or if you want to form your own opinion before reading anyone else's, please read it first.

This was sub-par at best. The author attempts to give an excuse for the main character's hesitancy and idiocy about half way through the story, but it doesn't amount to much. I'd be happier if the protagonist's hesitancy and lack of ability to confront what's so... more>> obvious to all readers was made to be a fault rather than something to feel sympathetic about (because I don't. I just feel annoyed.) Then, suddenly, she makes a 180 from a useless damsel to a competent noble. Wha...?

The story carries itself like a daytime soap opera. The main love interest is as generic as can be, and the PDA isn't written to be as impactful as the author probably wanted it to be. And there's another reoccurring cliche I hate - the Actually!Evil!Heroine! Everything seems to get solved via smut. The scenes themselves aren't bad (in fact, they're rather generic.) I get it, this is a smut novel, but if you're only going to half-ass the plot, then why not make it an enjoyable comedy instead?

The translation is great and the translator is well experienced in making Japanese novels seem authentic in English. If there's anything to complain about, it'd be the constant switch in POVs; in JP writing, it's more common, but in English, it feels jarring. Still, that isn't anyone's fault. (Send the translator some support; they're having a problem with people on Wattpad reposting their translations and claiming these works as their own!)

This isn't horrible, but it's definitely not to my taste. If you're a romanticist at heart, like the majority of all existing shoujo stories, or like daytime soap operas, you'll probably like this. Unfortunately, this is the type of romance and characters I greatly dislike. I didn't care much for I Reincarnated, but I Think the Prince (Fiancé) Has Given Up either, but the prose there made it a bit more bearable for me. <<less

It wasn't bad, and the main character had some depth to the emotions she felt and why, but overall it wasn't great either. They leave you hanging about one of the plot devices they bring up in the beginning which leaves the main guy undeveloped. The only thing that was slightly refreshing about him is that he was written with ... more>>

yandere-like speech.

. The main antagonist was incredibly bland for this sorta novel. In general, don't expect anyone but the MC to make sense. Also,


the main couple are like a PDA couple that somehow everyone is ok with viewing, and will even look on with "warm gazes".


If your looking for smut, this was fine, but I would keep looking if real substance attracts you. Even the fluff was so-so. <<less

This was a lovely read, characters are likeable imo and there's a nice sweetness and spiciness/smut which makes it yummy. ?

I'm only in it for the smut. And there's some fluff, not much drama. Overall I think it's okay.

Thank you translators.

The other reviewers are right.

Sometimes you just want to turn off your brain and read something light, and if you want such a read then this story is absolutely for you. The characters are sort of one dimensional, the villain is a comically simple fool, so there isn't much conflict there. The FL is.. Fine? The ML is slightly yandere and absolutely in love with the FL so no worries on that front. What I would have loved to know is why the story changed, what went awry so early... more>> on, and the big factor was that the fate couldn't be changed, so what forced it to? There were no answers to a lot of questions that cropped up during the story. I think the author wanted to make this a longer work but for some reason that didn't pan out, cause this feels like an incomplete story, but oh well, for a light read who cares about that? <<less

A simple and cute smut novel. This novel didn't wow me but it's still nice. Don't have much thoughts since it's kinda short so yeah... 7/10 quite enjoyable.

This story doesn't have a real or logical romance, but it does have smut (you're probably here for that, me too).

The smut part is cool, it’s not that good, but it’s okay.

Very meh, would only recommend for those who want smut.

The antagonists are super weak, s*upid, and easy to deal with. MC is a demure, submissive girl - she stands up for herself in one instance but that's it. Plot is basic and un-developed, but it is very short so probs why.

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. Seeing how it's rather short, the story develops quickly. A little bit too quick for my liking, with a good portion of it dedicated to ero. Despite the background being a game from an otome game, the storyline mainly focuses on the MC as the villainess and her fiancee rather than going in-depth with the other capture targets. I would prefer to get more backstory from the characters including introductions on the other capture targets, but it didn't happen.

So if you're looking... more>> for a short story with light storyline and some sexy time, this is for you. <<less

Nice and smexy... but as for the plot...

It's so hard to find the right blend of smut and strong plot.

What I like:

  1. Of course the smut ?
  2. How the MC told the so-called protagonist how a real harem or reverse-harem in this case, should be

    Boys might pamper a girl at first, but after a while they're going to want that "cookie" ?

    those words of wisdom shined the light of hypocrisy on many reverse-harem stories.
What left me unsatisfied is not knowing about her research. Too many questions left unanswered about it for it to have taken up so much of the story.

So yeah, 3 stars.

Finished it, enjoyed it for some light reading, but wasn't surprised about any of it.

If you like devotion in your ML you will enjoy this, and I appreciated that FL was very focused on the original story and the changes, simple but good read.

Overall: Cool story bro

This was surprisingly good, and as another reviewer said it's not cliche, there's character maturity and growth, the plot twists aren't ridiculous and exaggerated, MC is lovable and THINKS for herself and follows things to their logical conclusions instead of being brain-dead, and the snu-snu scenes are well-written. It's light and fluffy, not overly dramatic, and all in all well done all around.

If you're looking for something quick and simple, a filler for other on-going works, and are into series where everyone is on the MC/FL's side (besides the mob/antag), then I'd give this a go. Just don't expect much out of it.

There was very little plot (being only 20 chapters), but one thing I did like is the... mind set of the MC. She was willing to at least try and change the story for a bit.

If you came for the smut, it isn't all that. It's your typical smut soft... more>> FL who doesn't really say much, but "no~" and moans. Made it seemed coerced, if I'm being perfectly honest, like there was no verbal consent at all (unless if I missed it). But that's typical for stories like these. And again don't take this too seriously and you'll prob enjoy it. <<less

This is another game comes to life story. It only has a short chapters so the story is quite simple. It's a story about a noble girl, Fransesca, who is destined to be a villain in an otome game. But of course things start to deviate from her original fate, like her fiancee whose head fall over heels towards MC, unlike in the original story where he falls in love with the heroine and dumps MC.

Although there is a sm*t scene but this story is not only focus on that.... more>> There are many sweet moments too between MC and ML. Sadly, it's ended early. <<less
