Review for Lady Folbroke’s Delicious Deception: Harlequin Manga

Review for Lady Folbroke’s Delicious Deception: Harlequin Manga

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

A more historical fiction romance story than most of the Harlequin Manga I have read so far, but I have to say that I was more than happy to try it out. Would it work out for me, or is my preference the more modern of romances.

That poor thing, marrying a handsome man at such a young age (though I guess back in that time setting it was normal) and then having him leave her alone and stay in London doing heavens know what. Of course, people aren’t too happy about this, and there is immediate drama. Oh dear heavens, the drama begins from the start. Oh, dear, that lie is going to bite her in the butt. Fake marriage is one thing, acting like you are pregnant, with the heir even, oh my. Oh my!

And when we do find out the truth about the earl, I am sorry, but do I need to feel sorry for the dude? It sucks that he is having all that, but to just marry and dump your wife? At least be honest, I know this is historical stuff, so the values were different, but sorry this is just a dickmove. Especially since apparently he doesn’t have problems with kissing woman (and goodness know what else). Bah.

Her plan? Eh, sweet, and cute that she was willing to do so much for a man who just married her and left her all by herself without any hint of what was going on, but yeah, I just couldn’t help but roll my eyes and wonder how I was ever going to get through 100 more pages of this nonsense.

And really? You don’t want to see her (we are talking about Dicky Mcdickface) because you haven’t been able to support or provide for her? You don’t feel like you have a right to see her? What the hell is wrong with you dude? sighs

I am just so pissed that he is going to meet another woman, OK she is actually his wife, but still, that doesn’t make it better. What a dick this dude is. Can someone kick him into a river or something, please? And then after sex, he is still like, oh but I can’t say I love you, because of my wife and I can’t betray her more. Um, dude? Really? Oh my word, I am just arggggghhhh.

Why can’t she just be honest with the guy? sighs I am really frustrated with this book. Dear Lord in all heavens.

Oh good grief, more drama when she is finally honest. Dang that dude is so frustrating. Thankfully his loyal servant/friend is also pissed, whoop whoop finally someone gives that dude a whopping. Go go go. Tell him how gigantic bastard and whiny booboo he is being. 😐

Ha, and the ending ends with cliche upon cliche. Whoop, thank the lord I am done with this manga. Historical manga just isn’t for me, or maybe it is just this one that is terrible due to the insufferable idiots populating it.

The art was the only saving grace of this book. It was absolutely gorgeous!

But other than that, no thank you. Happy I am done and I can delete this book from my ADE.
