Description
From fictiondb:

They had shared a beautiful affair.

Then Briony had learned the shattering truth. Although she had been deeply in love with Kieron, a reporter then, he had wanted her only for a newspaper scoop. It was painfully ironic to Briony that his calculated lovemaking should have resulted in such a beautiful baby boy...

It was no less ironic that Kieron Blake should now be Briony's new boss at the Daily Globe.

One look at little Nicky told him the truth--and set them on a collision course. Either she married him or he took her son away!

Bad just plainly bad

I never usually write reviews, to be honest I never say a manga is bad usually I give a minimal of a 3/4 at the most, but this is a plain and fat ZERO, I wish I could describe it in words but I can't.

Just plain terrible story development

Don't bother reading this Harlequin romance. After the flashback chapter, where we get the whole basis for the couple conflict, the female lead never truly confronts the male lead with her issues. The writer just let's him force himself into an unwilling relationship with her. It's got noting to do with any kind of abuse, simply terrible plot development and non-existent conflict resolution.

There are So Many other contract or loveless marriage stories from this publisher that are far more entertaining. This is my first with a #1 ranking, it's that bad.

Plot is a bit strange and probably it would be better if manga was longer. But still it is better than some other stuff out there. As a romantic manga this is really good one, but plot is indeed underdeveloped...

There wasn't any physical abuse

There's wasn't any physical abuse that ChocoKun said there was.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He never once hit her. The only time he was about to was in chp 3, however, he stopped when he heard Nicky. From the scan, it's a bit cut off, but you can see that he is still holding is hand back and didn't hit her yet. He also realizes his action too on the next page when he holds his right hand.

However, he did push her in one scene, but that push is hardly called abusive. It was more of letting-go-of-her-arm-in-a-rough-way, the same arm that was about to slap him.

So, overall he was hardly an abusive husband, accept for the once PRE-marriage attempted rape, which he stopped after she refused.
I'm not trying to defend all his actions, but setting the facts straight.


As for my review, it ended as you would expect. However, everything was resolved all to easily and quickly to be realistic.

I think the story is underdeveloped. I'm not a fan of the genre, but occasionally I look for this types of stories, cuz characters are usually interesting. I didn't find these characters even worth the pages they consumed sad . The guy is a villain in the eyes of the heroin, so he has to come of as a bad person. But a con man, border rapist and extortionist? The girl got burnt. She adapted a new persona and then she concedes to whatever the guy is throwing at her?
There is no fun in this story. It's like a cheap drama with large gaps of common sense.

Ok, NO, WORST HARLEQUIN EVER!

For those that are wishing to read this, I sugguest you find some other Harlequin than this (I bet any other one you find is better than this.

I know the male leads in Harlequins are usually forceful and everything, but this is just..... NO
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1) When they get into heated arguments, the guy SLAPS her and PUSHES her down to the ground... not the sexual way lol but the ABUSIVE throwing to the ground way.

2) He OPENLY flirted with another woman, like in all the Harlequins I've read this is the 2nd time I've witness it.

So in short, he is more like the abusive husband. Even though the story mentioned him almost committing suicide, I STILL cannot forgive his actions. This whole story is sending out the wrong message about love, as if getting married to an abusive husband BEFORE will eventually cure him of his abusive habits... like NO


This is the 1st story to receive a 1/10 from me. Do not read it!

Hmmm...

Personally I don't think that it is too bad. I really like the forced marriage theme. And on top of that there's a child and a caring mother x cruel bastard. That's kind of my favorite setting. The art is not too bad either. Actually I love that adult-looking style. Probably I could read anything if it's for this style.
I'm curious how it will end or rather how the end will be done. Since if it's a harlequin you have always somehow an idea how it will end. smile For now I really love it (even though the guy is a bastard, my sympathies are with the mother^^). My final rating will depend on the ending.

Well, the ending was how I expected it to be. I guess I like harlequins. Other than that I wouldn't have been able to bear it I guess... I'm a little disappointed that

she forgave him so easily, because no matter what you might say, he used her...
