- childhood rivals turned lovers 3
- JAB 08/24/2018
So, the heroine is in need of a fake fiancée, something that the hero overhears at a temporary maternity leave party for one of his friend's wives who also happens to be the friend of the heroine. The hero makes the proposition of pretending they are each other's fake fiancés in order get other people off their back like the heroine's mother and grandmother as well as the hero's landlord's persistent daughter. The heroine rejects the idea considering how everyone knows about their rivalry but gives after her mother set her up a blind date with one of her younger brother's friends. They play the part well of being the fake couple but there were some things that I didn't like about the heroine's attitude. For example, snubbing the hero when he asked only for her time then puts up the condition that she'll listen if he buys her lunch. She doesn't even say sorry, I was fairly disappointed in her. Then the hero suggests they have a fake date in order to prove they actually are dating and the heroine says he owes her one. The man doesn't owe Jack because she's using this fake relationship as a cover as much as he. So, it takes a lot of work with the OW stalking them but it works and everyone is grinning from ear to ear. The hero then gets hassled by the landlord to tell the heroine to back off on a article she wrote when she was "investigating". Now, the hero is one the heroine's side but he does bring it up with the heroine about the whole thing but the only thing that made sense to me in that conversation was the heroine giving the people in the article a chance to solve the problem. Sadly, the heroine thinks the hero is only doing it because the man is his landlord and he doesn't want any trouble with him. Their fight escalates to where the heroine kicks the hero out of her home and fires him as her fake fiancée. Yet, the heroine takes the hero's advice about the article and rewrites it but doesn't tell the hero. Then she's stuck with having the family reunion but no date there but the hero comes in, ready to make amends, and be her date. Things go well with the family reunion and our main couple seem to be enjoying each other but they deny it when the friends hint the attraction. Then the subject of fathers being in the delivery room comes up and it's opposing opinions. The hero is on the side of husbands stay out with the heroine say dads stay in. You know, personally, I found it ridiculous because the heroine is a reporter and she just assumed that the hero will participate in baby making but not in the sense that they would feel uncomfortable and helpless when watching their wife in pain. The hero is no better because he's not thinking of the wife about how she needs her partner's support through this moment. This conversation does have a lead because they have to help their friend mop the floor since her contractions started. I laughed and their shocked faces of their friend who's in labor and mopping the floor. It was funny and they waited with her until her husband came home with the kids. It was actually a real pleasant scene. The heroine and hero grow closer to where the hero wants to make their relationship real but the heroine doesn't because she's letting their past as childhood rivals define their relationship. They separate (no duh, there) and when the brothers who get both sides of the story go to her to tell that the hero wants to make up with her. She pulls this stubborn act that she didn't make a mistake but she does want to make up. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! You are the one who instigated that the relationship was fake and should end; you are the one who ended it. How's that not a mistake?? So, the heroine and hero chase circles around, trying to find each other till the hero rescues the heroine who was stuck in the snowstorm They seem to talk things out and share a special night but the next morning, it's the circle of he said and she said that ends with the heroine ending their relationship again. Then they reveal their lie to close friends and family and when the hero leaves, the heroine is encouraged to go after the hero because she loves him and he loves her. She waves a wand, confessing her feelings to the hero who in turn does the same. Afterwards, we fast forward to where the heroine is waking up the hero because she's gone into labor and the hero is going with her to be right by her side. A nice ending, but the whole plot with our female character was a bit much.

- stereotypical feminist 2
- Casandra 12/16/2017 1 people found the following review helpful
So this was a cute story, but the female lead was not really my type of character. I don't like the short-haired angry Chihuahua type of girls. They get on my nerves. The guy was good in some places but he had weird taste in women. The art was decent. I'd place it right around average for Harlequin manga. Truthfully the female lead being the way she was is what turned me off to the story. It was my only real complaint, but it was a big one. She seems like every stereotype of a 3rd wave feminist. Right down to the short hair, her triggered personality, her childishness, and not being able to reflect on her own actions and extremely large ego. She thinks that she could never be even partially wrong. When the male lead comes to her with a issue, she freaks out on him and breaks things off, the next day she goes in and decides to take his words to heart but her default is that she's always right and any challenge to her way of thinking by anyone is thought of as an unjustified assault from an enemy without even trying to think about what the other person said or understanding anything about the other person's point of view. I'd think it would be tiring to be around her if she was a real-life person. Well, that's my review.
