When I Stopped Being Your Shadow

He was the hand of God, the painter of the century. My husband became the best artist in the empire.

And I was his shadow.

Even when my work went viral under my husband’s name, even when people spoke ill of me behind my back.

It was still good. Because I loved my husband.

But on our wedding anniversary.

“You are the only person I truly love.”

I witnessed my husband whispering his love to my best friend.

At the very moment when my husband saw me discovering his infidelity, his face contorted viciously and pushed me away.

“Where are you raising your voice to your husband?!”

I realized.

I realized that that man had never loved me.

So I decided to become the evil wife they spoke of.


“I have a special story for you.”

Ines suggested in a strained voice.

A man as beautiful as God turned his eyes gently to her.

“It’s a special story, our newspaper won’t print the case if it’s not good enough……..”

“It’s the fall of the painter known as the Hand of God…”

Ines continued in a tense voice.

“Isn’t this good enough a scandal to be published in Elton, the greatest daily newspaper in the empire?”

“Then what does Countess Brighton gain from the scandal?”

“My life.”

Ines’ answer brought a different expression to the man’s eyes for the first time.

I love rebirth stories — especially ones involving a FL getting her life back and divorcing a leech. Unfortunately, this story is far more preoccupied in lionizing the ML for being a decent human being and comparing him to the FL's husband (who is such a POS that he makes Sovieshu look like husband of the year).

I was hoping for a story that showed the FL's growth as an independent human being and having her find love on the side... But at least from the framing, it looks like she'll... more>> end up basing her self esteem around another man, just one that isn't an absolute piece of shit. Yawn.

Poorly paced story with 2D characters and underwhelming core dynamics. Dropped. <<less

So far it's really good hope more chapters come out soon. I love to read them but it needs to be said that the jumping back in time trope is soooo used lately, can't authors just figure out ways for MC's to come close to but not die and then start the revenge path?

In this one I was hoping for that scenario since she started started using her feet to run but damn the author was ready to intercept and send her back.

This one is going to sweep that tr*sh... more>> so good :p <<less

This novel is by no means a game changer. It's pretty standard for a do-over romance novel. BUT it is still enjoyable!

Very light read, nothing is too complex, not so many characters that you can't remember half of them.

It is fast paced, especially compared to similar novels. It's pretty campy too which has been fun.

Don't take this novel too seriously and just enjoy the ride!

I'm really enjoying this, I like that the FL has such a talent that she finally wants to show. Enough being pushed to the background and hello self-respect.

Really she had none and it's satisfying to read that she's working on her life again. It's never to late for that especially if you get back in time with a new chance lol

It's written decently enough, but it is kind of bland/generic. The characters just don't feel like they have anything unique about them. It's not a bad read if you're in the mood for some kind of 'making the ex regretful' thing.
