This is a very interesting novel. The background information and story plot line is smooth. The character design is fantastic with the descriptive words that allow me to imagine and picture the actual scenes clearly in my head. Overall would totally recommend to my friends and hope the story continues and grow more popular!!


It is an amazing romance novel. You won't regret as you start to read it. Super! Super! The story-line of the female protagonist, Aria and the male protagonist Asher is great.


I really love this story! the plot is very interesting, i couldnt stop reading this the whole week!♡ at first i doubted it but as i read further i could not help but read more of this to quench my thirst!!♡♡


Super interesting!!!!!! Must read!!!!!!!!! The translation is amazing and the plot is awesome!! Overall i love it!!!!!! Worth the money and time!!


I'll be honest, I only read the free parts. (that's just 10 chapters) I love Villainess stories, love the trope and probably will read again and again. So when I saw this pretty cover being promoted, well who could resist? But this one doesn't generate enough interest for me to continue. The contents aren't awful, some parts are even artfully placed as to pique curiosity. But it seems rather fluffed up as to take up chapter space/word count. Of course, we're not looking at revolutionary originality in this type of genre but you know it get's rather tedious. Kind of like watching a very obvious anime filler episode. The translation and editing are also very odd. Sometimes it's a very detailed and pretty line/transaltion. Other times it's...honestly really awkward, even bad. There were times in the first 10 chapters that made me go "Where is the editior? Seriously?". Overall both the editing quality and fillers contents just seem not worth it for me spend anything to unlock further chapters. Not if they're all like this (thats 200+ chapter of DBZ level dragged out filler on a story you can kinda predict already). This is just the opinion of one poor reader with limited coins/fast passes. Thanks but no thanks. Note: If you read on mobile the qutoes show up funny. They come out as &quote; instead of actual "..." but I'll blame that on WN.


damn! have I known this novel has been transferred here, I would have loved WN more. Thanks and I love this novellllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I really like korean novels... they really focus on the development of the plot and the character are always so well made and inspiring and relatabe


This book has an interesting storyline but the expository kills it. The chapters have repeated info, the explanations are mostly redundant. As for the dialogues, they are plain. Conversations and actions that ought to be put in dialogue format (to flesh out the story) are jumbled into one paragraph of explanation. The pacing of the story is off, the events and processes that mc goes through are rushed. Worse, the series of events don't always happen sequentially. It becomes confusing in a chapter to mention things that happened in the duration of a previous chapter but was never mention in said previous chapter. Overall, looking at other reviews, I kind of wonder if iread a different book. Maybe I'm just over sensitive.


I've read 51 chapter as i review this novel, the translation and language is a little bit confusing, and it has slow pace story, not really worth it to unlock Main character is so selfish and not genuine, it almost feel like she just love to use anyone without any emphaty or feelings, she wasting her power of hourglass despite knowing it have negative effect on her, so i'll drop this novel, thank you for editor, translator and author, keep up ❤ i'm looking forward to your next better story 😘


I actually already posted a review months ago. But I feel like I mispoken a lot of things since I’m not an english speaker. excuse me then as I rant this lackluster story (again) The plot is intresting enough. Sure Villainess novel, I love these kind of genres especially if the mc became an anti hero with charms that makes u feel “I support a baddie” kind of thing. But this novels lacks that bcs of the MC childish, selfish, boring, and petty revenge I’m just...- over her. MC is trying to justify her evil deeds because her past innocent self was killed injusticely by Mielle. Which is....what? What innocent lmao. Aria is willing to sell her own body so she can live a good life without trying to study or try her best at anything, a big bich to her family, and have horrible temper. of course her noble family will not tolerate it and shame her. It’s not mielle’s fault for thinking Aria is a big eye sore for her family. I’m not telerating murder and Mielle is of course at fault for murdering someone. But Aria‘s first run in life can’t be considered as “innocent” right? Both of them r basically the same bad ppl. And ya’ll wanna make me support the mc? oh please... If I support Mielle... I support a murderer. If I support Aria, I support a hypocrite lmao. just nope. It’s been a while since I read novels with kind of a childish mc(?) So I can’t help but get critical with her settings. If you like this novel, hoopity hoppity there’s nothing wrong with you. Go ahead and read this if u want. I just can’t continue~ (●´ω`●)


At first it was okay, but I really started to hate the mc. I couldn't stand her at all. I empathized more with the sister rather than the mc. The sister's actions in the first life really wasn't that bad. I understood why she did it. Revenge, revenge blah blah blah. It's not like the stupid mc had been a saint in the first life either. I have no idea why she was even given the chance to reincarnate. Heck i would totally be pissed too if some woman and her child just barged in and became family


Muy buena, definitivamente una historia que te atrapa desde inicio a fin, una protagonista que no se anda con pequeñeces y que realmente cumple con lo que se propone.


The more the story goes on, the more structured it is. Every time I expect more and wait for the next story. The world we live in is also a world where people who are dishonest pretend to be good people and hold power and everything. I like it more than anything else that the author humorously criticizes it through this novel.


I love this kind of love story which is well made, based on revenge....... Must try it!!! It has the fantastic story line. Most of all, I love Aria. Please upload more chapters a day... I can't wait...


I love novel❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍🤭😍🤭😍😍😍🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 More, More, More🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻


Super interesting and fun! As revenge is going on, the beautiful love story goes along with it. Must read! I would like to give much thanks to the author.


The story is interesting so far and the plot is moving too fast or too slow. However, the translation quality can be improved though. The main character is also quite interesting as well.


It seem's a excelent novel. I like it👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌


The strange thing about this character is that she is selfish. She's childish and everything I'd looked at in a business like manner. But that's how she was raised. From her time as a prostitute's daughter, to the time she spent with the count family. There was no one she could trust and depend on. Even her mother was not around. But there are signs of compassion even if she doesn't fully understand why she does certain things. Don't turn away from this story just because of the MC's selfish behaviors. It's a worthy read.
