Description
When her father died Geraldine Frances's lifestyle changed forever. As a plain and overweight teenager, her dreams were shattered when the man with whom she was infatuated bitterly betrayed her, leaving her with one all consuming passion... revenge. She resorted to the drastic measures of plastic surgery and rigorous exercise to create a stunning new face and slender body. She had become 'Silver'—a hauntingly beautiful and mysterious woman few men would be able to resist. Dramatically transformed, she was almost ready to confront the man who had rejected her years before. Just one final hurdle had to be overcome and here, the ruthless, uncompromising Jake Fitton could provide all the necessary expertise—and so an extraordinary alliance was formed!

Adaptation of English fiction Silver by Penny Jordan.

Pretty good manga if you overlook the plot holes!

This manga is great for a mindless binge-read in the middle of the night. Don't read this if you are here for the story. If you're down for guilty pleasure/dirty chic lit, then this manga will be great.

I personally liked the fashion in this manga. The dresses were gorgeous, and i wish i could wear them. The smut scenes were great too.

It gets a 10/10 for what it aimed to be: cheap comic porn for horny girls.
But if you asked me how I feel about it as a manga on its own? It's not too great. Lots of badly done cliches, too much melodrama, and illogical scenes.

Still, it's better than Gold (FUJITA Kazuko) .

Despite some draggy parts in the middle, this manga is a good read overall. I really love the male lead (Jake) and adore his love for the female lead. Relieved that's a happy ending biggrin

Actual revenge story arc is too short   
Rating: 6.7 / 10.0

I hoped for a nice and partly cruel revenge story and the beginning is promising. But then the first fail, the flashback story, introducing everybody and everything, takes way too long with lots of unnecessary details that drags it until I only flipped through the panels until the school story was over.
I chose a Josei manga to esp. not read about school, students and their cliche problems.

However it has a lot of nice turns, (bad ones too). Remains over all predictable. The revenge story arc was very much to my taste. 8.5 points for that. Some things backfired or didnt work out which is good because it makes it more real.
But it was too short, too little and not desperate enough.
I wonder whether the past story was actually longer, as the Silver revenge story was often interrupted. Unfortunately.

The second love interest, namely Jake, annoyed me quite often. He is supposed to be blind (can differ light from dark though), but he doesnt behave much like that at all. If he isnt Daredevil, then its just ridiculous how he moves through unknown terrain. Second fail.

As closer to the end as cheesier it got but in a way that imo doesnt fit a revenge story.
The smut was very nicely done, worth to check it out for it.

When skipping the past story arc Id re-read again, some years later.

Surprising

When I first started to read this story I was skeptical about it.. But now that it's done I'm happily surprised in how entertaining it was. Only thing that threw me off was that the artistry seemed a bit sloppy to me..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a girl that falls for her cousin ends up betrayed by him.. She also turns into a fat and not so attractive teenager which doesn't help I guess.. So she goes to weight loss boot camp and does major plastic surgery to her face.. She then wants to know about sex and ends up getting her old school tutor.. As ironic as that sounds. She then goes by the name of silver and because he is blind from a car accident that happened he doesn't find out it's her right away.. Being an investigator by nature though he does find out and their love life starts to unravel.. But because he and her are both on a mission of revenge they end up splitting so that can do what they need to. She goes back to London and starts her revenge on Charles (her cousin). Which instantly works.. He is suspicious at times but she is a keen woman and keeps him in check.. Jake goes on a hunt for the drug dealer that killed his wife and investigator friend. It ends with a cliff side battle where all but jake and Geraldine die.. They then live happily ever after

Very lustful.. Very erotic.. Very painful.

Yes I'm glad I gave it a try even though there are negative comments ! If you're a josei lover I'm pretty sure you'll like this too. Personally I read it whole in one night as I couldn't stop reading !!!!

The drawing is okay, pretty pure and old fashioned. The rhythm keeps you tense all along. The characters are quite profound in a sense they act accordingly to what you can expect from then but being at the same time really complex so that you can be surprised. And it's the whole story that is like that : you can't mistake it for anything but a josei although I'm not sure there are any similar story already existing.

When I first read the premise, I avoided this series because I hate needless drama. But still, people kept recommending this to me, so I figured, why not give it a shot? Hahaha. Ha. No.

I knew that I would have to endure a couple chapters of soppy back story before the protagonist gets a backbone, but really? 20 chapters? Completely unnecessary. The author could have easily settled it in less than half that amount. Basically, the whole first bit was the girl being a dumbass. Honestly, when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Charles was trying to choke the brat, I almost started cheering out loud,
. It might just be me being a bitch, but seriously. She has a lot of issues. I don't even know why I bothered. I normally steer clear of anything even close to resembling this melodramaramarama. The revenge bit is (marginally) better, but still headache-inducing. I don't know, I just can't bring myself to finish this. Maybe I'll try again when I feel less rant-y.

Excuse me, then. I need to go detox from the sloppy mess that is this manga. Good day.

Guilty, rainy day pleasure.

Like all the "adapted from English-language novel" mangas, this is very soap-opera-y so don't expect too much.

The josei tag is a bit misleading--yeah, it's slightly josei but it has a load of shoujo cliches on the count that it's a dime-store romance novel adaption. It's got revenge, a beautiful female lead, a tragic past, rich people, smut, misunderstandings, lost loves and a brooding male lead. I personally didn't find the story so bad but it went on a lot longer than it should have. The manga-ka could have easily ended this with around 30 chapters.

But if it's raining and you're looking for some guilty pleasure manga, then I would seriously say read this. If you're not into soap-operay situations, I would steer clear.

Disappointing

This is my first review but don't take it lightly. Without saying any spoilers, I will get to the point - this series was a total disappointment. The revenge part of it was cool, but poorly executed. The author took way too long to explicate the character's past. When I read this, I thought : "It's set in a fictional world that imitates Europe, so forgive its unrealistic aspects". Oh, but there are many. What coincidences there are in this manga are way too unlikely and cliche. The plot is hugely subjugated in favor of sex, and believe me, there are many sex scenes. Plot hole after plot hole, I found it hard to sympathize with any of the characters. Oh, why can't it have an ending like Hamlet!? With only Bridey living and telling the story. Haha...no
I only recommend this if you want to see some smut with an over-dramatic plot. The art was pretty interesting though, despite being dated and whatnot.
P.S. Get this, the author also has a series called "Gold"...pfft

This plot was so filled with dark, rich plot that I had to finish it in one sitting. Each of the characters are very complex and you understand each of their struggles. The main character, though very stupid at the beginning and naive in the middle, she becomes a strong willed and ferocious character that kicks major a**. For a psychological romance manga, read it!
