Beating the Heroine at Her Own Game

In the kingdom of Artoria, only one lucky woman will be able to become the consort of the crown prince. Such is the premise of the hit romance game that everyone's been playing. But, Cosette isn't your average gamer... she's a housewife that's been reborn not as the hero, or even as a rival, but as a generic background character! Cosette is doomed for a bad ending if she doesn't do something about her situation, fast! But as she finds herself drawn into the intrigue of the upper classes, she also finds herself getting closer to the crown prince himself! What will happen to Cosette in this mixed-up love comedy?

I honestly do NOT like this kinds of manhwas but if ur the kind who prefers the MC to be some kind of girl who is easily charmed or like jealous and always tries to keep them up and its honestly so annoying to see FL chasing after the ML in her heart and she doesn't even know she likes him?!! Oso what urks me is tht she was a WIFE in her prev life so you'd expect her to know a thing or two ab romance but NO. shes rlly stupid [sorry] ab romance and dumb to fall for some bullshits talk Ml say. AND HW DOES SHE SEE ML ROMANTICALLY? like if i were her i might js think of the prince as some young dude bc of the prev life being a MUM? What irritates me most is the fact that the MC is in her 40s in her previous life ,but 50s including the present time, she acts like a 10 year old kid  during FL ML first meeting, he falsely accuses her and just blindly believes the Heroine but later after finding out that he was wrong, the MC IMMEDIATELY forgives and gets flustered when the ML apologise liek once and pulls up some sad sob story about the late kings posioning, and him wanting to bring the wrong doings to light, the MC literally just thinks that hes some kind of righteous person or angel like thats SOO ANNOYING! Apologys don't always work and i hate how the MC has some kind of jealousy issues and is fringing cringy and gives damsel in distress vibes sometimes ngl and ik i said it before but she has a mental age of about 9 like seriously??!!!??? NOT RECOMMENDED.


Yeaaaaaaaa just nooooo. The characters don't really act logically. Like legit the freaking prince confides into the mc about his situation even though they have met only briefly, which is strange af cus you don't really discuss such sensitibe matters with someone you are not even close with???? And what's with the competition to win the prince's heart in the school, like how the fuck do the logistics even work with that? Apparently any lady can challenge another to some contest and the theme is randomised and the event is held?? Wouldn't it be more logistically prudent and efficient to just host some consort contest or something instead of some face off events taking place in a SCHOOL????? I get that this is a story derived from an otome game but...cmon at least make SOME form of sense.  Plus, the whole shoes that help lose weight thing...uhhh that would mean your legs would constantly be at a workout right?? And if it's worn for the entire day won't you just be straining your legs and potentially injuring yourself?? especially worse since its on HEELS.  Also it's odd cus the mc is supposed to be a 40 year old mum, but it doesn't seem like she is a 40 year old mum. She knows a bit too much of the game considering that its HER PREVIOUS reincarnation's daughter that played it?? Would have been better to have the daughter reincarnate instead to be honest. Jeez. Yea, sorry but just...nah. Plot is all over the place. Characters are ok but sometimes behave so unrealistically I cannot wrap my head around it. Just no.  (Apparently I marked this story as 5 stars, likely because I mistaken this to be similar to the white pig noble daughter manga, which is better and more realistic. I was legit confused when I came back to the manga and wondered why the story was so everywhere lol)
