Try Crying Prettier

Sleeping with him was a very impulsive decision.

Yesterday, Damia’s first love that usually filled her with anxious joy, broke her heart with a cruel rejection:

“Find another man.”

Her manipulative step-brother smiled at her.

“Didn’t I tell you? You will eventually come to me.”

Damia was fed up with all these games.

So she seduced and slept with the man who had just arrived in the north.

The beautiful eyes belonging to the woman subject to terrible rumors held no lust, instead Akkard found her to be rather clumsy and pure.

“Your crying face is pretty. Cry a little more.”

He grabbed Damia’s ankles that tried to flee, overworked from his persistent ardor, but that only made him covet her even more.

Damia, lying beneath the ferocious beast, literally cried herself hoarse.

The man kissed all of her tears, and painstakingly l**ked her eyelids.

And soon he laughed greedily.

“Try keep crying under me from now on.”

The man’s lips whispered until the legs broke apart.

….It seems that she had chosen the wrong person to play with.

Honestly this is my first time giving reviews, and I feel like I don't have any rights to Rate this novel .


Personally I HATE "Playboy meets virg*n girl and falls in love" Trope. I frickin hate it with my whole life. So that's why I feel like I shouldn't rate it, cuz maybe others like this Playboy trope


So about the tr*shy ML :


He is shit. He is a Playboy, who doesn't believe in Love, likes playing with girls (Different girl every night) but throws them away when he has his fill of s*xual desire (aka he thinks girls/women are Object for s*xual relieve only), and He HATES virg*ns because he thinks they will demand for responsibility and Love from him because They gave him their first time. That's why he hates virg*ns. And he is also always the one who throws the women he slept with away the next morning, meaning he always rejects them the next day, and he has never been the one rejected. So he is proud cuz he is famous and gives away his p**is freely everywhere.


Plot so far :


Damia (FL) has a crush for 10 years to her best friend, but suddenly her BF becomes a paladin and is about to leave. So Damia gathers courage to confess to him, but he rejects her and says to her to find a new Man.

Damia has a brother (IDK biological brother or step-bro) who lusts towards his sister. Btw Damia is very beautiful.

So she decides that because she got her heart broken and Her brother is planning on raping her, she will sleep with the s*upid tr*shy Playboy.

So that's how it went, they had a night together, bla bla bla. The next morning Akkard (tr*shy ML) finds out that she was actually a virg*n because there was blood on the Bed sheets. Then he begins hating and all despising Damia thinking that she tricked him so that He marries her and will demand for love. Then he came up with an idea to actually r*pe her and sleep with her again until he is satisfied before she demands for responsibility and asks him to marry her.

You can imagine how the next day of a poor virg*n girl who JUST got her first experience went, yes she was forced by him to have s*x again, she kept pleading that it hurts and she had enough but he still kept going until night time (He did her for more than 24 hours).

The next, next morning (?), He woke up and was about to tell Damia that he was satisfied and plans on throwing her away, but gets interrupted by Damia instead as she says "Thankyou, I'll be going now. Have a safe trip going back home" something along those lines.

He gets all furious and all inferiority complex (s*upid monster) and says "How dare she throws ME away, I was always the one throwing girls out after using them, but This s*upid Damia dares throw someone like ME, I'll make her suffer until she begs for me to not leave her, and when she does begs me then I'll leave her that time hahahahaha"



Anyway that's how it went, hope y'all not read this shit I'm literally boiling and banging my head here cuz

the ML is such a sh*t in the head and body

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS PEOPLE!! To avoid misunderstandings from bad reviews please read this first.

First of all, I loved this Novel. I once clicked this just because I thought I wanted to read a smut but then in future chapters, I felt like I was reading a K Drama in novel version that was so intense that I cried until 4 AM in the morning with no sleep. THIS IS VERY GOOD. However you may hate Akkard at first, but you will come to like him in... more>> the future.

Second of all, to the people who kept complaining about Akkard Valerian shut the F up and complete the Novel first and then voice your opinions okay? Geez.

Also, the1villainess' chapter 95 here is actually somewhere in chapter 40+ in the original novel.

Anyway, at first I wanted to read this Novel because of the smut.. But along the way the story of Damia and Akkard became more and more interesting.

(You can say I read it for the smut and stayed for the story)

Now for the spoilers

    • Why Akkard should not recieve so much hate and should be forgiven;

First of all, Akkard Valerian probably suffered a lot and recieved and immense amount of pain and countless rejections during the last half of the chapters of this Novel. Which means that he suffered for like 60-70 chapters.

I hated Akkard at first because of his personality. He never cared about women and he never loved anyone before. He thought Damia was just another one of his 'women'. However as time passed he quickly realized that there's a different feeling growing for her. He got scared and tried to deny it and say 'it's not love.. It's impossible, so he decided to take a step back and avoid Damia.

That was his mistake.

he didn't know that his feelings for her were pretty much engraved in his heart now and could not be erased.

He didn't know he hurt Damia. After hurting her, he was afraid that Damia wouldn't look at him again.

Well, as expected, she rejected him over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. For maybe 50-60 chapters?

He realized it was too late because he finally realized it was love, but the woman he loves does not want to see him anymore.

Akkard probably faced the stages of grief over and over again. He decided to repent and reflect on his behavior in the past.

He also corrected his mistakes and apologized to the women he hurt before. Because of that, he was burned, slapped, kicked, and almost stabbed, but he did that for Damia.

He repeatedly grieved, crawled, and knelt on his knees, and cried as hard as he could just to be forgiven by Damia. Damia rejected him every time.

He thought all hope was lost and "Damia will never love me again". He decided that even if she can not love him anymore, he will devote his life to her. He will never be with another woman for the rest of his life.

Then there came trouble where Damia was worried about her father because he was facing danger. Akkard decided that it was better to sacrifice his life in order to save Damia's father.

He knew that Damia loved her father so much and he didn't want to see her teary eyes if ever her father got hurt.

That's why Akkard decided to sacrifice his life in order to save Damia's father.

Even though he knew she will never love him. He did it regardless, because his love for her was now as clear as the blue sky, and he knew that now.

Akkard did everything he could, and I believe he's done enough to redeem himself. That's why he deserves to be forgiven.


Akkard did everything he could, and I believe he's done enough to redeem himself. That's why he deserves to be forgiven.

It's called "character development" for a reason. And Akkard's character development bloomed like a fresh Lilly in spring. It was fantastic.

Spoiler about Damia


Actually, Damia already had lingering feelings for Akkard as the story progressed. She just rejected him (multiple times) because she didn't want to get hurt again. (Which is totally understandable) However, Akkard showed his sincerity to her and he clearly showed her how much he changed and he even begged and pleaded and risked his own life for her sake.

He valued her father which was very precious to Damia more than his own life.

That was the time when Damia then realized that 'this man truly loves me deeply'.


For those people who are still mad, then please don't read the Novel and don't show bad reviews when you clearly didn't see the whole story yet. It's frustrating to see terrible reviews of people who knew nothing.

Also, the person who talked sh** about Sienna (in the spoilers section) clearly doesn't know what he's reading.

First of all:


Sienna showed Damia their past where Akkard was beaten by his dad a lot of times. She showed this to Damia because she wanted Damia to know their past and to understand why Akkard has this wall around him that avoids love. She just wanted Damia to know the reason.

She even said

" I'm not doing this because I want you to fall in love with him, I just showed you this because I want you to know why Akkard is like that, why he became such an imbecile little brother."

"You don't have to love him, and even me as a sister I really hate his personality too."

She didn't want to guilt trip Damia into loving Akkard. Sienna didn't have bad intentions either.

And Damia didn't change her mind about rejecting Akkard even though she saw their past.

That's why this reason isn't even 1/4 of why Damia fell in love with Akkard again.

(So to the person in the Spoilers section talking sh** and trying to point Sienna as a villain, wt* is wrong with you? You don't understand a thing.)

A must read. Smut scenes were hot but up until probably chapter 50 (from raw) From 1st chapter to 80 you will see this tr*sh smart mouth talked negative about their relationship and kept stepping on damia heart, positive thought over and over. Now at chapter 119, he realized that he love her but well it way tooooo late. Table has turned.

idk, the blatant dub-con is really upsetting. I know character development is a thing and the ML needs time to pull himself together and become a proper man for the fl, but right now, he's doing a lot of things there's no coming back from. And what bothers me is that he doesn't seem to feel super bad? At least not bad enough to apologize. Damia deserves better. At this point, I'm just waiting for his day of reckoning to come. And if it's satisfying enough and I feel like... more>> he's suffered a good amount for what he's done, maybe this'll get bumped up to 4 stars. <<less

Love story of a heart broken girl throwing herself to playboy yandere knight.


its kinda immature to throw herself just bcs shes hearthbroken. So I thought theres more into it.

She throw herself onto Male lead knowing he do not invest hes feelings to anyone in attempt to run away from upcoming dangerous thirsty wolves.

In any case this is hott smut!! Great job on translators.

I read this some time ago, and I don't remember where I left off, but I definitely remember how I felt about it.

The smut was smut. Ive become desensitized to it so ig it was alright but nothing spectacularly creative.

My real gripe was the ML. Gosh, I'm usually very tolerating of toxic relationships/characters, but this guy really made my blood boil. I didn't like how incredibly arrogant he was, which is obvious from the novel synopsis, but he was just *sooo* shook when a woman didn't cling onto him, and... more>> of course he takes an irritating interest to her because of that. Like you're hot and all, but dude's got a massive ego that realistically anyone would be turned off by.

But what genuinely bothers me is how r*pey and pushy he is. r*peY ML ALERT!! thats him. I was horrified by how he actually r*ped her continuously the morning after her first time. Yes, he is a playboy is extremely full of himself, but there is absolutely not excuse for his actions.

they each fall into the most stereotypical tropes among stereotypical tropes. He is a rapist, arrogant, dominating shitty ML and she's a pathetic weak woman who just... lets stuff happen. How typically misogynistic.

these things on their own wouldnt be that bad, but since they're paired together AND blown out of proportion, I just couldnt enjoy this at all. I also don't really like weak FL's who just get pushed around a lot. Like girl, you have a brain, dont waste those cells on this man. You can do better.

Read for the smut if ur that desperate I guess, but the story will probably drive you away, or at least bore you. <<less

The smut is top tier!

The plot takes a bit to start, but I already love the friendship btw. The FL and Cecil.

The FL unapologetically takes what she wants and is quite quick witted.

I'm not overly happy with the ML so far - but the flags raised so far promise a nice character development!

Just give it a try - and maybe continue reading for longer than the first view chapters: plot is happening, I promise ;D

IF ANYONE CAN READ SPANISH OR WANTS TO GOOGLE TRANSLATE, SOMENE ALREADY TRANSATED WHOLE ALL 158 CHAPTERS. novelitaslight1409. Blogspot. Com Asure's Corner Please go and support them!

I really do enjoy this novel, besides the ML who is quite frustrating. I also heard from someone that


Akkard during the last like 50ish chapters realizes he loves Damia and he screwed up big time. He begs and begs for her to take him back but she keeps rejecting him in fear of getting hurt again.


the chapter length and release is crazy though. Apparently around 130ish is suppose to be like ch 40. Wtf. They release like 1 1/2 chapters per month. I am very thankful to the many wonderful people who translate and upload novels in english, but this group makes me mad with all their stories they translate. They release very short chapters, which aren't even the full chapters, while so many other groups are releasing longer chapters on a monthly bases or shorter. It just annoys me to have to wait forever for a chapter. I would rather have like one full chapter per month or so than these half chapters

It's true the ML is shameless, arrogant, and s**tty... given FL's situation, however, he is exactly what the FL needs to feel in control while real tr*sh trying to take control of her and her life. By the way, the smut is amazing. FL is amazing too. She knew how attractive ML is and her attraction towards him, yet they don't cloud her judgment. It's great to see the ML being humiliated again and again unknowingly by the FL.

(ノ◕ヮ◕) ノ*:・゚✧ Go, go, go, FL!!!

The smut is repetitively and pretty much not much to cheer about.

MC however is the biggest factor why I liked this story. Mainly because MC have only one drive anf that is to sleep with handsome men.

Honestly I feel like that is fair. None of the male leads in these stories seems to be likeable. They are all horrible abusive, manipulative and really suck at pleasing women. Honestly their main metodh is just stick the stick in side and jackhammer.

Also I don't understand these system genre. Where the MC get... more>> stuck with an ai inside their head which do barely anything in helping her.

The downside to this story is the fact that there are several scenes where the MC is very much telling the other party she doesnt want to have s*x only for them to completely ignore her and do it anyway.

If r*pe or s*xual ab*se is a trigger for you I would not suggest this read for you. <<less

Will stop reading for now, will wait for more chapters..

Smvt was really hot, there's dub-con so I understand if some readers dropped this novel coz of that. ML was kinda tr*sh too, can't wait for him to suffer more from our FL..

This was a rather easy read coz the chapters were short, and plot's getting interesting at this point..

So what I've read falls into dub-con for me. I liked the FL, the ML is not great. There's a depth to him, which might be visible in later chapters and he might have a huge regretful vibe but still it takes a long time. The FL made it for me. She was consistent throughout my reading and does make the ML suffer.

I have to write a review on this, because I feel like anyone who voted down on this missed this point.

While I am ambivalent to the ML, the FL is just so, so good. There are parts of her dialogue or inner narrative that I think are just so awesome, empowering, and go against the typical narrative of women being little more than an inanimate object swayed by the whims of men where s*x is concerned.

I adore the fact that she wants to take control of her life and her... more>> story, and does not follow the path of so many other MCs who agonize about physical contact of any nature. <<less

I'm currently at chapter 135. All I can say the male lead is self-centered that why he can't admit to his self that he love Damia (FL name) making him a bad ML (yes up till chapter 135 he still can't understand his own feelings) I guess he will learn his feelings when Damia leave his side. But slowly I'm seeing a chance for Akkard (ML name).

The plot is nice, art style, translation.

First of all, I understand how many of us probably will hate Akkard for couples chapters in the beginning, as other reviewers said He is a playboy and that is disgusting. But you enjoy and fancy something spicy in a story, this novel probably made for you but eventually you will felt soft as well.

I don't like to spoil so much about Akkard background story, but later on you will probably cried knowing what actually makes him such a playboy, or rather... more>> a character. I literally bawled my eyes reading the story and very much pitied Akkard. Give it a chance, seriously, you wont regret it. <<less

I dont know what is shittier the ML or the fl, the ML is a sichhead peac*ck who things just being a male he can lord it over women and have s*x with them however he wants wether they want it or not cause how can they reject him and his magic stick and them dump them, and FL is a timid " weak " creature who let her step brother walk all over her and couldnt stand up to him and instead of calmy talking and expressing her stand... more>> and showing the ugly side of her step brother to her father decided to throw herself on the first pretty man she finds to express her independance, and the whole novel we are reminded that women are weak frail without courage who cant fight men creatures that I barely stood reading to 40 chapters, akkard the ML always forced her as if it is she has no will of her own and the fact that he is physically superior is always mentioned and her only trade mark way of resisting is pushing his chest and then falling for his " pleasure ", this novel is sooo s*upid very illogical the first 12 chapters as they are very shorts are all of one s*x scene when I saw the smut tag I thought I will read something in the middle of the novel or at least not that descriptive, and we still didnt finish one scene when another is starting, it was soo triggering for me in the way women were humbled in the novel by the ML and other males <<less

A total waste of time!! I mean I get it that the ML was a tr*sh and treat women like sh*t but him getting humbled in the middle to the end of the novel seems like a stretch. Like I started hating the FL for real!!

The ML's repentance was getting dragged too long that I just lost the interest to diligently read the novel. I just skipped them just to finish it.

Good translation but the smut is alright, similar to most KNovels. It got repetitive very quickly but I stayed for the plot. Plot is very interesting but you’ll only really get to it after like 80 something chapters. Honestly, if there wasn’t so much of the smut for so many chapters, I would have rated it higher. The next half of the novel was all plot, but I get it that the smut is actually part of the plot.

I like how everything ended and I really like the FL. She’s... more>> so smart but everyone thinks that just because she’s gorgeous, she’s dumb. So she uses that to her advantage which I love.

ML is a typical f*ckboy. But he really really makes up for a lot of it at the end and how much he’s hurt her. And also typical in these novels, he’s got a sad background. But FL is really strong-minded and does not give in easily. Sometimes it even makes me feel for the ML (Granted he deserves it).

There’s just one loose end i’m not too happy about in the novel.


I finished the translation from that1villainess, so i’m not too sure if I've actually completed the novel but from the last chapter I read, it seemed like all the antagonists were caught and the FL and ML got together.

Anyway, i’m not happy about how the FL never actually met up with Cesare (Antagonist) and find out why he was so obsessed with her.

The novel said that FL would meet him in dungeon but there was never that scene. I could have missed that chapter so it’s fine.

That’s probably just the only obvious loose end I was not too happy about.
