    Wonderful story. Although it lost momentum when reaching epilogue it was still enjoyable :) I can easily recommend it to fans of romance.

    The only thing I’m sad about is how they have all of these extra chapters but we never get to read about them having kids :(

Love the story so much, I like the protagonists, especially Aria, she has a unique personality, it's not the classic poor girl of other stories.

So worth the read. Excellent storyline, fast paced as well, there was no unnecessary story included in it, they all had a purpose, each chapter went straight to the point, the characters were awesome as well. Overall this is one of the best novels. Both fl and ml were just the best. It’s a must read.

Good story to read. As it makes me finished reading it, so it was great itself. the storyline was easy to understand, great translations, good ending. But it wasnt able to make me feel emotional nor understand what the mc feels. its just like ordinary story to read. you know how some story makes u feels like u live inside it? yup, i dont feel those in this story. but still its good to read. and the romance part was acceptable. not too cringey. the story also balance between logic and imagination.

This was one of my favourite manhwas and also my favorite romance/revenge light novel. I finished it twice and still come back sometimes to read it. Main character is very smart, great revenge on the villainess, great character development. The story doesn't drag, you don't get bored of waiting where is the revenge. There isn't one thing I dont love about this. Would 100% recommend it.

I love this story, Aria is a true Villainess.
Her focus is her vengance, she works for it and even the why she had another chance is properly explained, the ML is a great match for her and my only complaint was that the ending was a bit dragged.

I like it. The beginning wasn't the best but I've appreciated the growing of the FL. I've noticed a lot of people talking about Mielle but the worst in my opinion is Isis. Anyway read it 👍🏻

1. This story is really about petty revenge siblings rivalry. I have read until chapter 49 and it was just all about that.
2. Until ch49, the point is just too much on getting the man. I hate catfights, regardless with or without hair pulling scenario.
3. The grammar is just too terrible. I had to pause for few hours so that I can get ris of the irritation that I felt when reading this story. It feels like an essay written by a 12 year old.
4. The story is so slow paced. Too much focus on the the petty revenge. It feels like I am reading the same scene in a different setting again and again.
5. The vocabulary used is very bad too. Not to mention all the hyperbole that makes me cringe of annoyance.

I read better time-travelled stories with better narration, plot and character build up.

The end portrays that she removed her benevolent face (for nobels) and becomes a sly yet astounding crown princess.

The more I think of this story, I feel that I liked the ml alot. As reborn fl, ofcourse, she's gonna be a awesome but the ml was a charming romanticist since the very beginning.

The story is a ten, no problems there, the characters are likeable and the story engaging, with an interesting pacing.
Then why the 3 stars, well because after finishing this my eyes are bleeding, basic grammar is not even respected, IT WERE has appeared so many times I lost count of it and many errors similar to it.

Omg, I really love this Web Novel. It is not the typical "went back in time" story and goody-two-shoes female lead, however, I didn't like it that she's too revenge-driven all throughout.

Really love this story. One of the best I've read. Aria lives up to her title as a "Villainess" I love how she thinks and plot everything. I also liked how the romance unfolds, the process of her revenge and actually I just really love all the happenings in this novel.
