The story was good, it could have gone places, literally anywhere besides where it ended up. Its a sweet and steamy but also dark and suspenseful, a good read. Until last 2 chapters. I understand that the autor was sick and they had to cut it short, but goddamn. I Don't think i ever encounterd a more disappointing ending as this one. I like to think that everyone hunting was high on mashroms cause NOTHING nothing made sence. How did they expect us to believe that was the same person? One of them had a butt chin!! And why did she think she could kill him with a gunshot when he can heal? Ohh and now his stalking her for 10 years?! Do better.

It's frustrating since the damn FL is soooo helpless. Like really helpless, weak, Feeble, incapable, and submissive. I mean- in that type of household it will bring you down to that state. 

If you want a strong lead FL, this is not your story hon. You just have to follow through the story and take the hits of emotional distress. I'm really hoping that this is just a build-up for a chance of a revenge plot twist, but if this keeps going on- MY personal opinion, I might have to drop this. I can't relate to this woman- personality-wise, and the story doesn't give you emotional relief. Once they finish having sex, you're quickly out of that fantasy and become just as aware as they are in what type of environment they're in. And it's not a good one. This story really does a great job of making you feel uncomfortable just as how our FL does.

The idea of a vampire and mortal relationship is good, but the relationship hasn't really progress freely since the FL is in a restricted household, so it will take some time for them to fully connect. This is quite frustrating for me since the episodes have been coming out slow. I stopped at episode 42, just because of how frustrated I was with the whole situation and the fact that the main characters really can't do anything. That's my main complaint if you haven't noticed.

I do tend to stray away from infidelity, cheating, secret affair stories because I really hate that icky feel it gives me. And this is exactly how I feel when I see her "husband" just get his ass pounded by some random chick that is manipulating him, it's disgusting. But then get mad at her, when he discovers that she has a man that's pounding her ass too. Like, make it make sense. Her "husband" has been treating her like shit, abuses*ve, and is just a fuck-tard. I really hate him, and he's not even all that to talk the biggest shit. For all, I know this dude looks like a background character.

I can see why I have a love-hate relationship with this story, my opinion. Mainly because I haven't run into stories that have open sex scenes with a good plot behind them. Most of them usually are shallow and immediately go into a pounding scene after a 2-minute dialogue, it's quite repetitive and gets boring fast. But what's so great about this story is that it has a plot, that is deep and makes sense. The slow build-up of the connection between the two main leads is frustrating yet realistic, and once they go into that scene, I feel as though it's the icing on the cake. All we're missing is the cherry on top, where they can fully/freely be in love.

The art is great! Every artist has a different style, and personally, I will rank this as my top 5 favorite art styles. I love how they made the ML, so beautiful <3 Jet black hair, pale skin, and hazel eyes that stand out the most! OMG! And once the blood stains his skin, WOW. SO amazing! The Fl is average-looking, and to me, average-looking is not bad nor ugly. I just find her normal, and they sure did a great job on projecting that image for her, if they wanted that. Maybe in future updates as her self-esteem and confidence grows, the more glowly she will become, I hope-

Overall, a 7/10 :D

I think I just lost my will to live from reading this darn manhua. 

The plot is practically non-existent to be quite honest. What you see from the synopsis is the most significant thing about this story and it's also the prevailing conflict. If you were hoping that Giselle gets with the new vampire boy and lives a happily ever after then I can tell you right now that it probably won't happen ;-;  Also for 60 entire chapters that I've read so far, not only is the main conflict dragged out and literally does nothing to move the story along, but also, there's no development whatsoever even after the abusive husband is killed!! Like dude, once a conflict is dealt with, you should be either finding a new conflict or doing some damage control. Apparently the author choose to ignore both options and just drift along a haphazardly made storyline with the ML.

In terms of characters, the only comment I can make about the FL is that she's so stupid!!! She doesn't stand up for herself, doesn't know what she wants, and is essentially a doll that does whatever it's made to do. She's so helpless- istg if I continue reading this manhua I'm going to lose brain cells. 

Recommended for: No one. Literally no one. If you're here for the smut then I just suggest you find a hardcore smut reading because the plot for this one will literally take off 10 IQ points from what you originally had before you read this.

I like this manga, because it showed the real life of married women with violent husband. And how the affection of this on her life. I think this is the best drama I read, I like the charchter and the story but I think there is a lot of mature stuff that, not suitable for people underage ! So be carful.
