I loved Chikae Ide's artwork. There were so many large splash pages that are just begging to be coloured... even though this is obviously not a colouring book. Everything is so crisp and clear! Plus, I am so pleased with the constant barrage of flowery backdrops!

As for the plot, it was short, and very undeveloped compared to most other shoujo/josei manga I've read. But compared to other Harlequin manga, was one of the stronger stories. It was light, fast-paced and completely ridiculous. I had a

I received this manga from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

Devon is a model, or well, was. She punched a dude (for very good reasons and I am generally very anti-violence) and got fired. Now she is without job, without much happiness, and then it is demanded she marries a son of a rich dude, and that son is, of course, the one she punched. Ah, this premise sounds so delightful. This sounds wrong, but given the fierceness of our girl, I wasn't worried she would just say yes. I expect to

Devon agrees to marry Ryan because Ryan wants to please his grandfather who has a terminal illness. The only problem is Devon doesnt like Ryan. Their first meeting ended in Devon giving him a good punch in the face and she lost her modelling job because of it.

Ryan is a hot shot business man and really very arrogant. He is attracted to Devon but sees their fake marriage as a way of pleasing his grandfather in his last days. He doesn't believe in love and is convinced that Devon is not the nice pe

I enjoyed the trope of the fake marriage, but I loved the deeper spin on how it happened. Devon is the daughter of a wicked women who was married to Ryan's brother. Ryan despises his brother's ex-wife and anything attached to her. These two start off in a bad way -- I loved that sucker punch! I enjoyed seeing them battle with their feelings and truth of their being "forced" to marry. Cute and quick read.

Illustrations were beautiful here ad it's one of the things that got me interested in that manga. The storyline is easy - they meet, there is a conflict, and then they get married due to some spin, that was really intriguing.
I liked the story as it was light and easy to follow with the HEA of course.

Whoohoo! Finally a girl with spice. When Devon is embarrassed by the things Ryan says during a fashion show, she stand up for her self and delivers a well deserved smack down, literally! Next thing she know she is engaged and married to him to satisfy a "dying man's" last wishes.
I love manga and this was a great story and I loved the drawings.

Ryan and Devon met under unpleasant circumstances. The hotty-business-hunk insulted the supermodel for her beauty. He is actually attracted to Devon from the first sight but he does not want to admit it as he does not believe in love.

The fate later brings these p
