I received this manga from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
The second of 5 new Harlequin manga that were up on Netgalley. I had a bit of a laugh at the title, but still couldn’t resist clicking the request button when I saw this one.
Beth and Jamie, two people who had grown inseparable when they were younger (kids and later teens), Beth had to leave and they promised that they would meet again. Jamie promised he would be successful and make Beth a happy woman. Cue back to 15 years later, and it seems that only one of the two has remembered the promise to meet up, the promise to be together.
I felt sorry for Beth, it seems she has been looking for Jamie all over, finally meeting him, and the dickwad doesn’t remember her. I so didn’t like Jamie. He was cocky, icky, and come on, not every woman interested in you is going to be your sexual conquest. Sadly, and I really didn’t like that Beth did it, though I guess I can understand why, she goes with him and just proves once again that Jamie can do anything he wants and will get whatever he wants.
Unlike the other book the sex scene is a bit more graphic, plus I liked it even less than the previous manga’s sex scene. It was just not something of love.
Throughout the story we see flashbacks to how Jamie and Beth met each other, how Jamie got to live in the same village as Beth, and how they grew closer and closer. I am glad the author added this, as really, if we would only see the now parts, I would probably just want to kick Jamie in the nuts.
I am sure that it was meant dramatically, but sorry, I just laughed so much about that morning after they had sex. Dramarama, so much drama. snorts Eat that Jamie, and really, maybe you should just have asked her name instead of being a drama queen (which also continues later on)?
Of course it doesn’t end there, oh heavens no, we still got 60 pages left. :P The drama will intensify and let’s not forget to add another sex scene (which I at first didn’t like).
And really, all that dumb shit could have been prevented, but heaven forbid if people for once talked about things. Oh no, let’s assume, let’s fucking assume. rolls her eyes Dear Lord.
But the ending was sure sweet, and I am very happy for everyone in this story.
The art was just wonderful, it really fitted the story well, and I just adore how well drawn Jamie and Beth were.
So all in all, I did enjoy this book, even though it was silly and dramarama, it still had some good moments, and a sweet ending.
