Review for After the Ball: Harlequin Manga

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

Twins, ah, how lovely. I still remember in high school when there were was a triplet, they loved to just change places. If one didn’t like a certain subject the other would go there. It was quite hilarious at times to guess who we had sitting in our class that time. 😛 In this one Eliza changes places with Gemma after Gemma was stung by a wasp (OUCH, that has to hurt like hell, I don’t even want to know how you get stung there). Of course the childhood friend notices, and while I did like the guy, I didn’t like that he forced a kiss on her. Eww no. That is so not sexy. Never was, never will. I also wasn’t that happy with how he excused himself and Eliza from the party. That is not classy. Not at all. Not a good first impression for this dude. He has a lot to make up for if he wants to woo my heart.

Wait? Eliza? You are dating a married man? That so doesn’t fit with her. I never expected that from her. And I did think it was a bit weird that now she doesn’t want to be him, because of Giles. Um. So, he gave up his marriage for YOU, and now you don’t want him? That seems shitty.

Haha, I knew what they did at the ball was going to haunt our twins.

Uhm, Lawrence, no, bad. It is a good thing Giles had the sense to come in, I don’t want to think of what would have happened otherwise. That left a bad taste in my mouth.

Giles’ plan? Um, maybe you should talk to people? Then again, both Paul and Giles are creepy as hell. But still, this seems all too silly. Welcome to Harlequin world I guess. At least I am glad that we finally got a bit more romance between Giles and Eliza, that took them so long. I know, we had some fleeting moments, but I wanted more.

More drama, dear heavens. But the ending was very sweet, I loved that both Eliza and Gemma got to marry their romantic interests and that they held a marriage together. So sweet!

The art? I definitely liked it. It was cute and sweet, and I love the character designs.
