While reading this, I discovered the difference between love and obsession. I mean Jarte was obsessed with J, to the point where he wanted to kill her.
The only male I liked was Ewan. I mean he is the reason they broke up, BUT he quicky changed into a nice guy, and realied that the only one for Jay is Jarte and the only one for Jarte is Jay.
The worst part was the middle though, its like all these thing happen in 1 secpnd. And boom, they broke up. But then they figured out they can't live without each other and blah blah blah.
BUT the one thing I must say is, YOU MUST BE STRONG. You have to prepare your heart for ALOT, and I mean ALOT of tragedy. Don't think this is a cinderella story because its not.
It's very far from cinderella.
Its filled with obsession and tragedy, with a a little bit of rape, and attemped murder.
And remember this is a Psychological manga, so don't expect this as a light shojo because its not.
The reason I gave it a 7 is because of the matureness in it, and it is a bit too much for light-hearted readers like me.
Just remember the warnings I gave you.
this series it's so addictive! and wonderful! n DRAMATIC! to the very end that it's perfect!!...it's true that maybe sometimes there were a little unrealistic things..but manga it's an excape to another reality you have to see it n understand it! n forget the stupid little details n see the big picture!! see the 2 more perfect lovers in the face of the world!!!... once i heard someone saying that " loving a person means to trully feel desperate when that person it's even at your sight and just feel about to die if they look at you, something as simple as that could make you die of happiness", and i didn't believe it!!, i'm too much of a REALISTIC n COLD girl to think that way! NEVER in my life would I believe that BS!!! LOL ...and i didn't believe in love at first sigh...but after this...im sure i do...it made me think that, everyone has one other half, and that maybe.. you can be 100% happy when you find that person...in this cruel and cold world we live in....And if something gaves u back the hope u once lost..the hope to "the ever lasting love that conquers all"..i think it's word it.. if this gave back the hope to a non-bealiver non-trusting non-the-shoujo-loving-kind-of-girl..everything it's possible!! i hope u cry, scream, curse, laugh, love, understand n LOVE this series AS MUCH AS I DID!!

A truly beautiful story
This story put me through one whole lot of turmoil, except for the starting part though. The story of how lovers truly in love with each other had to go through unbearable pain, and joy. The feelings being put through the reader clearly bleeds through, as I myself read and found myself in tears most of the time.
It was OK
Well, the start looked very promising, but it went down-hill fast.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It quickly turned into something like a reverse harem (yes, every single dangerous guy she meets falls for her). The italian mafia is after her, the male lead's unknown half-brother is after her... There are things like a 12-year old attendant of a prince - and yes, there is a prince of a small european country who of course is handsome and very very smart. The main girl is described as a "plain girl", which will make almost every female reader feel bad (if she's plain I can just go shoot myself haha).
v9+ it gets smutty :p
But if you like this kind of confusing love-hate relationship the mains have going on throughout the whole series and enjoy a somewhat irrational plot you should love this.

Such an amazing shoujo manga ;__;
I loved the art, the feelings and the emotions of despair. Although there was REALLY a lot of typical korean "cliches", and the misunderstandings made me want to tear a pillow open. Poor pillow :,( but it's a good kind of rage, haha.
I loved this manga, and I'm too tired to write how amazing it was. BUT HOT DAMN JARET. oh and plus, the feelings were really well expressed. Just saying. But how many people have to fall in love with her?
I loved the ending, made me smile (:
Come On Already
So I have to say, this is one of my first times reading psychological manga and it doesn't suit me...at all. I mean this is like a never ending soap opera, it's got all the elements,

memory loss, I raped you, oh wait no I didn't, gender change, new woman, mafia, mistress, how dare you
. I mean it's a good manga it definitely keeps you interested, and a good portion of the time, on your toes but it's beginning to get predictable and overly extensive in the drama. But I can tell you one thing, one of the categories says "cinderella story" for all you realist out there this is like the manga to shock people out of there cinderella-happily-ever-after syndrome. This is not even realist this is like straight up pessimist. And what is with this guy's domination complex, I know some things, in order for them to fall into place, she has to listen to him and I know people say it's not really a free country but damn, it's a free country, does she have to listen to everything he says, it's like she's got no spine which I was under the impression she did have. All in all I think this was just a very high dosage of reality for me, especially when I'm like the shoujo, moe, type. The only reason my rating is as high as it is, is because

Hold on for the ride
I completed this series in a span of 3 days and that's pretty impressive for me considering it's an 11 volume series and I'm a college student. This should tell you that the series will definitely drag you in for the story. I didn't know what to expect while reading this but before I knew it, I was too into the story to bring myself out.
The art in this series is so so pretty. The detailing of the eyes and lips is on point and it's definitely refreshing to have such great art in a storyline. I also found the fashion choices displayed in the story to be perfect and it made me wish I was a designer!
The story line did have me tangled in it's web. There is happiness, rape, torture, suicide, abandonment, love, violence, amnesia, murder, etc in this story. I really feel the author has touched about every line of betrayal in this story... however in a way it could be too much. I only gave this an 8 because I felt the story line had so much drama back to back. It would have been nice to have a breather between being thrown into another loop in. Should the author would have written the story with some constant mild flow, I would have definitely given this a 10
Hold on for the ride because this story will throw you every direction

For those you girls wondering, YES they DO have sex, and though the scenes were not explicit I found them to be a big turn on. The beginning started off slow, and Jarte in the first few volumes looked to me like a typical cold and pretty face rich boy. However, his expressions progressively become more sensitive/well drawn and his features eventually begin to resemble those of a handsome and sensitive white boy - those of us girls who prefer caucasian boys to asians will LOVE this manga at times, the story plot got a little newb and the character moods shifted quickly - but I found this to a an epic love story. It is indeed shamelessly cliche, trying to draw in jealous lover, prince and princess, and all the story-book elements of shoujo into one manga. At the same time, I thought this made the manga simply one of the most romantic/wishful-thinking love stories I've read so far. I fell in love with this boy after getting a few volumes in - and I'd consider myself usually someone VERY hard to please.
It was one of the best shoujo manga i ever read! :> It's just fvcking amazing! But i just don't really lyk how the story being dragged. :< Otherwise, the story plot was just simply great
Read this for 10hrs. NON-STOP
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the first thing I remember though after 10hrs was..what the hell..when they finally had sex I was thinking yes! but all I saw the next few pages were FLOWERS. Anyway by the time we got to volume 9 it was pure comedy I tell you!!! the spanking incident was gem!!
But to be truly honnest, despite the great plot that it was..the way it progressed was such a drag. It was a bit frustrating cause disaster kept piling up on top of the other. Sometimes, the key into keeping a reader interested especially when it's this long is so spunk it up. I mean, loose it up a bit and give us happy moments that over shadow the sad ones. Sure, it's cute when they argue whenever they're together but..one day J's some cold-hearted bastard and the next he's not. Not that, it's not an appealing character..cold aloof but sweet and tender blabla but the sudden switches were a bit off. With every page I turned, I'd start to read it faster cause I wanna get to the bottom of everything. I had wanted to "savour" the manga and enjoy every chapter.. but the way the plot progressed it was impossible.
Also, the more possessive J became the more I felt like it was purely obsession. If you've read Kare Kano, I think you'd kind of understand where I'm getting at. Not trusting, entirely controling the person you "claim" to love..and to add up it wasn't "the" J anymore at that time. THOUGH, I'm really glad that at the end Jay did that whole "trust" test. But why did it have to be in the very end? I was dying to just seperate them and let them have another years apart!
The most frustrating thing was how it ended just like that!! SURE, it was a happy ending. But come on, give us something more to rejoice with! That was long endurance there and it just ends with "I love you" "I love you too" BLAAHH. And sure the extra was nice, fluffy and made me all jiggery..but what's the point of mentioning babies when they dont show one in the end?? :/ Over all, I was just unsatisfied with how it ended. I wanted a glance of their family life..everything! Maybe the author got tired and just wanted to hurry up and end it but you gotta make sure to satisfy your fans!
Regardless of all my complaints, I still can't bring myself to hate this since it made me cry A LOT. And stories that move me are always worth under the "like" category. Even though I had wishes of changes from here and there, I'm still glad they lived "happy ever after". Still not the BEST for me though so I'm giving it an 8.
