This Man Trilogy created and mastered by Jodi Ellen Malpas

*fans face* Just the fact these books were written by a British Lady and it’s set in London makes things better. It makes me wonder if there are people in Britain like these characters and this is possibly based on them.

Three books in the erotic romance, This Man Trilogy-

1- This Man.

2- Beneath this Man

3- This Man Confessed.

The books tell the story of Interior designer Ava O’Shera and Lord of the Manor, Jesse Ward. Just incase anyone gets the impression, it is set in present day London, Lord of the Manor is a name Ava calls him, but he does own a manor.

Ok, this was my reactions to these three books

Book 1- This Man Oh… My… God. JESSE WARD FREAKING MARRY ME… Must get Lace underwear. Also there was a moment were the two main characters, Jesse and Ava went shopping to Camden (London, UK, Planet Earth, The not so edible Milky Way) and I fell off the sofa laughing recognising that the, “Dance wear,” Shop they had entered was probably one of my favourite shops- Cyberdog. Jesse, Ava, Yes there are people out their who wear that stuff. However, as the book ends my reaction turned more into flooding my local boring town.

Stitch Crying

Things get rocky between Ava and Jesse.

And women are- possibly first time in this book- encouraged to keep their -Lace- panties on. Jodi, leaves readers pining for the second book… and Jesse. Oh and in my case, I wanted to know about the adventures of Kate (Ava’s room mate) and Margo Jr (Believe it or not, this is not the guy Kate is having a relationship with, Margo Jr is the new pink van for Kate’s cake business)

Book 2- Beneath this Man– …  

invader zim Mighty need

For this book!

I’m not spoiling anything but this book also put me in the same fan-girling state as the first. Jesse puts himself in a state- Another flood warning, although my town hadn’t recovered from the one the day before- There is a lot of forgiving, in the characters and a lot of heartbreaking in the fictional world Jodi has created and in readers.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16156709-beneath-this-man

Book 3- This Man Confessed–  Was recently released- Now Spoiler, but I think Jodi had a genius moment when she thought up, handcuffs should be involved at a certain event… For those who haven’t read this before, handcuffs in sex is sort of done before obvious so it’s not in that situation.

Ava’s mother- “Get those handcuffs off my daughter… Jesse Ward, you try the patience of a Saint! Where’s the key?”

Jesse- “Somewhere you’ll never want to venture, Elizabeth.” 

Also, the, “Bad person.” In this series, was someone who had me questioning. And again my town got flooded towards the end of this book… On the other hand, I read some of this book before an interview and got the job, so, for me it’s a lucky book.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17255265-this-man-confessed

…. This man1

Three books later, Fifty Shades of Grey, get out of the top selling Kinky Fuckery (Erotica to you normal people) section

Right I’m trying to decide if I’m going to swear or not. From this book you learn, swearing in front of the Amazing Jesse Ward can have angry and kinky repercussions.

I’ll admit this series is probably not for everyone, Jesse is very controlling and possessive, but in the end I don’t think a romance story can really cover the wants on everyone. It’s not like there isn’t any fight in these books, yes Jesse is possessive of Ava, but she does fight back, she’s not a submissive shy thing. And let’s be honest this is fiction, as much as some people would like, Jesse or someone like him probably will not exist…

The books have their perks and shows over and over and over and over and over…. again why it needs to belong in the erotica section, although I think take all the sex out, you could just put Jesse and his manor in the erotica section and I’d stillThis man 2 buy it. For some readers, it doesn’t just include sex. No, it’s not sex. Jesse, has labels for these different kinds of sexual adventures. Jesse, I have to swear now. There is-

  • Retribution f*ck
  • Apology f*ck
  • Making friends f*ck
  • Reminder f*ck
  • Sense F*ck
  • Truth F*ck
  • Sleepy Sex
  • Celebration Sex

Now, there could be more, there probably is. I just don’t go writing down the different types of sex that happen in these books, if I did the people I live with would be more than worried.

Yeah… we all need a Jesse. Also with Jesse you also get, a countdown, a manor, money, cars, an apartment, Someone who can transport you to, “Central Jesse- Cloud Nine,” super pantie dropping sexiness, a guy with a secretive dark past, and like I’ve said a super possessive guy who will tear up a designer £500 dress in front of you. Oh and with Jesse you also get a continuous ring tone change for your mobile phone!

To go with Jesse, we have Ava, the woman who tells the story- yes this is a first person point of view deal. Ava, is a feisty, well established woman, both career wise and personality. It is though her career as an interior designer she gets to meet Jesse and that is the equation, once you have added an out of this world writer, that gives you, This Man.

I’ve said in the Title that this book was, “Mastered,” By British Author Jodi Ellen Malpas, That’s because I believe this trilogy differs from the others of it’s kind. There are a lot of, ‘woman get’s attracted to rich business man,’ Erotica out there. But it’s not just how Jesse has become a millionaire that differs from the rest- this aspect revolves around the manor and Jesse’s past. Each book provides an emotional roller coaster. There are occasions where your heart may breakDoctor cry

Ok, at some points it does seem like Ava and Jesse are constantly arguing at each other or having sex, sometimes both, but there is something in the books that made me not want to put them down.

So, if you’re into Alpha-male, erotic romances, give at least the first one ago

Late Night Ramblings of a Girl Who Cannot Sleep.

EP19-Duvet-DayWell it’s 01.00 here in the UK and I’m bored and not sleepy. My MacBook and me are sat cuddled in a duvet in a dark room because it’s suddenly gone chilly. I was still at work 2 hours ago.

I’ve watched Invader ZIM and Blood Ties and am currently debating whether to put on the new episode of Rizzoli & Isles. Maybe I should.

There is a reason to this blog post. I just feel like making you all less tired so you’ll all stay awake with me. You never know it could work. Yeah right.

Here we go. I like to read and has you know sometimes write about books on here. I use Goodreads everyday and review books on there and was seriously thinking of putting the reviews on here, even if just to post them when me and Cat are busy. Or do I create a different blog just for books? Now my main reason for combing it on here is because we write about the weird and wonderful and the genres of books I read aren’t exactly your mainstream top seller books.

Cat’s unsure and won’t post as much as me because even though she IS A PUBLISHED AUTHOR she’s adamant she doesn’t read much. Strange child.averyaster_sidebar200x400_badge

Anyways the reason I’m seriously thinking of these life changing decisions is that I’ve just received the ARC for book 2, Unscrupulous, of The Manhattanites series by Avery Aster. She’s a fantastic author who writes books that are funny, sexy, adventurous and in some strange aspects realistic. So I’m excited to review the book and wanted to really push the book and others out there.

Well that’s my ramblings coming to a dead end. Literally dead… my MacBook is warning theres 3% power left and I can’t find my charger in the dark. I have however found some granola type bars. Might as well get reading.

It won’t surprise me if there are more of these late night style epiphanies/ ramblings in the future. Just a gentle warning.

Night folks!

In other news 30/7/13

I have been asked to do this again… I think just because the rest of the Well Did You Evah team are glad I actually paid attention to the news last week.

So, This weeks post will feature, Handcuffs, Bigfoot, Lady Gaga and Jelly fish… Before you think of it, no Big foot hasn’t handcuffed it’s self to Lady Gaga and some how a Jelly fish was involved.

1. Handcuffs

SEX TOYS BONDAGE EQUIPMENT ON SALE AT AN ANN SUMMERS SEX SHOP. H

Lots of people have heard the hype of Fifty Shades of Grey? If you haven’t head out to your local charity shop… or maybe not, first think on how dirty minded you are. If you shy away or look in disgust just someone mentioning sex, then stay away. Some time in the past year, possibly a bit longer than that, the Fifty Shades Trilogy came onto bookshops highlighting the world of BDSM- which to be honest has been around a while- and bringing controversy. Taking lessons from the Big Quiz of 2012 we at Well Did You Evah call these BDSM, pantie dropping books, Kinky Fuckery. Apparently, we can thank these books for helping us out of the recession. Fifty Shades

Although Fifty Shades has got to the point of being possibly one of the most popular books in charity shops, and there is the possibility that these other kinky fuckery books are too graphic or something to be on proper bookshelves.  The UK are still keeping up with Kinky practices in the bedroom.

The past 3 years the fire brigade, in London, have been called out to 79 incidents where couples have used handcuffs and lost the key. Now I have two theories on this. 1, they were just so in the moment they lost the key. Or 2, They were secretly hoping a hot fireman/men (more the better) would join in.

What happened to the days where handcuffs came with a spare key?

But the Fire service have also admitted to other strange situations which they have been called out to, one being some man trapped his penis in a toaster… now I’m not sure if I want to know or not.

For the top ten- I’ll admit some of these I wouldn’t class as that bad- http://metro.co.uk/2013/07/29/top-ten-weirdest-objects-london-fire-brigade-has-had-to-free-people-from-3902591/

 

2. Bigfoot

Now, does he- or you never know she- exist? There has been another apparent sighting in Canada. From this video that has made it into a UK newspaper, the figure walking could easily be a tall person. But I guess it depends how much you want it to be Sasquatch.

On Youtube you can find loads of videos of Sasquatch, so by this rate, if Big Foot does exist, he’s either reproduced and has children all over the world or has access to a private jet. Considering his existence is questioned, he’s doing a pretty good job by confusing the human race. This video was posted on the 24th of July so if your on the watch for Bigfoot, get your passport and make travel arrangements for Canada! As for me I’m going back on the hunt for Narnia.

 

3. Lady Gaga

This Super Famous Popstar, responsible for creating songs such as Bad Romance and Poker Face and known for her striking dress sense. Has announced some news that I’m sure her devout fans will be (or will have been) sending her, “Get Well Soon Mother Monster,” cards.

Although she has hidden the news, Lady Gaga was a performance away from a hip replacement. Now I have never been personally to a Lady Gaga gig, but I see from everything she does she puts 100% into her work, so honestly I do want to give her a hug and wish her well. After 6 months she believes she is recovered, although it is thought she would have needed a year, if her injury had gotten worse and she needed a full hip replacement, which would disrupt her tour dates

Lady Gaga again, is showing the world is not only she is she an individual, that people can look up to, but with her own strength, she can over come her illnesses to be there for fans.

Full Story- http://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/jul/30/lady-gaga-hip-replacement-scare

 

4. Jelly Fish

It’s been reported that the UK has seen a rise in Jellyfish on it’s coast. They said it’s down to the warm weather… yes around 7 days of warm weather new animals start flocking to the UK… Does this mean if the UK can keep up 14 days of warm weather we could end up growing our own banana’s in our back gardens?

News2 Banana

I doubt the Jellyfish are going to stay here long once they figure out this rain we are having is a permanent thing.

Another theory why the Jellyfish are coming to the UK is that Ponyo (Studio Ghibli) is out there looking for Sōsuke, that also explains the storms and flooding too.

News 2 PonyoNow if you are in the UK and decide to dare going to the beach with this weather it is advised, not to follow the Friends Episode where Monica gets stung by a Jellyfish and Chandler pees on her to stop the pain, according to some big scientist dude this act is a myth and is just unhygienic, plus think what this will look like to other British folk on the beach… It is funny on the Friends episode though.

That’s it for this week… lets see if I’m back to do this next week…

Meg Cabot the writer for every ladies life.

Meg Cabot, Patricia Cabot or Jenny Carroll however you know the author you should bow to her greatness or at least bow to her cats, I mean books. If you still don’t know who she is you must have been … Continue reading

The Investigative Vampire

The current vampire trend, throws more of a romantic side to vampires. However, considering these vampires are often immortal, they probably need to do something with their time. Guess what, a vampires routine isn’t just wake up from sleeping in a coffin, go out, drink blood, have sex and then go back to bed- Trying extremely hard not to go down the route of going into what the Twilight plot line is about, because I have a feeling if I do this too much, I will have a bunch of screaming fan girls hunting me down. Although if they bring pitch forks and torches, I will be impressed. Don’t get me wrong, I think the Twilight books are pretty good, I just don’t understand why it has turned human girls bloodthirsty.

There are two series that show an investigative side to the vampire race (ok there are probably more, pretty sure Mona the Vampire is another one)

51XF5Q48P5L._SL500_AA300_

Bloodties is a programme based on Tanya Huff’s Blood Book series, which follows Private Investigator Vicky Nelson, who stumbles into the world of the supernatural, while investigating a murder. Enter *fan girl scream* Henry Fitzroy. The swoon worthy vampire, who also happens to be Henry VIII’s bastard son… Good looks, awesome personality, Romance writer/graphic novelist* royal lineage AND he’s a vampire. Marry me!

*He’s a romance writer in the books, graphic novelist in the TV Series

Henry, soon tags along with Vicky helping her solve the murder discovering it might have something to do with the supernatural. The murder victim was drained of his blood, the woman- Coreen, who becomes soon becomes a main character in the TV series-  who hired Vicky believes it was a vampire.

blood ties

It starts to get awkward talking about the plot line as the TV series and the Book Series have differences. I put it down to the books been that descriptive and in depth that the TV series couldn’t fit all of it in. But, both seem to get across that Vicki is this kick ass female, who even despite deteriorating eye sight- Retinitis pigmentosa, a condition where at the start of the series she is slowly starting to loose her night vision. The characters tend to remind her of their worry that with her condition she could get herself hurt but Vicki goes about fighting to finish her work. YEAH! US FEMALES CAN STILL KICK SUPERNATURAL ASS EVEN WITH POOR EYE SIGHT! The pairing of Vicki and Henry go together well, these vampires can’t go out in sunlight. Henry can work night, Vicki can work day. And meet together sometime in between. Although I have mentioned Vicki’s personality, she does go out at night too.

One thing what I love Tanya Huff for, is that she has given us a vampire who is actually comfortable with who he is- Someone please give Tanya Huff a hug- Henry doesn’t kill his victims and also only drinks from willing participants, usually when having sex… Sexy time with Henry Fitzroy :3

Henry’s blood drinking means Bambi survives, we have a good vampire and there is less crying in the corner thinking, “Oh God I’ll kill you… But I need blood,” So yes we lose that whole internal argument. The vampires in the Blood Books are territorial, so there isn’t much room for a plot of, “You attacked/are trying to hunt my human! You must die!”… That sort of sounded cavemanish… Vampires tend to stay away from other vampires, or else mass conflict will start out- unfortunately this fact becomes more important near the end of the series…

These books were first published in the 1990’s so, maybe majority of vampires have come down with a severe case of low self esteem and depression as soon as the century turned. Henry if you are out there, please do not have changed! But yes these books are older than Twilight and all those other new vampire books.

I recommend reading the books. Honestly, I couldn’t put them down. Or at least watching the TV series although unfortunately, it wasn’t renewed after it’s first season… I’m going to go cry now.

Blood Ties Promo

Moonlight

images

This is a TV series, like Bloodties it only survived one season. At Well Did you Evah, this is more Natarii’s favourite- I take the side of Bloodties. I found it a bit monotone.

MoonlightCast2

The Series focuses on vampire Mick St. John, who is also a Private Investigator, as he bumps into journalist Beth Turner, while investigating a crime where a lady was drained of blood. It is soon revealed that because of Mick’s ex wife, he and Beth actually have a past together- before anyone jumps to this conclusion, Beth was a Kid at the time and NO it isn’t that type of programme. Mick is a gentleman. The backstory connecting the two characters gives the plot line an interesting twist. Blood drinking wise, these vampires keep a fridge of blood in their, in most occasions, ultra expensive and modernly decorated apartments. Another, interesting thing about these vampires… they sleep in freezers. Oh come on it’s not that strange, how many times have you wanted to do that in the middle of summer?

Character Beth Turner is another strong female, willing to face anything, including death. Proving again, in a female plus vampire story, a woman won’t just fall for the seductive charm and good looks of a vampire.

Unlike Bloodties, this programme this one more focuses on the life of Mick St John and crimes committed by vampires. It carries this on well, with an impressive plot line that doesn’t stray from the fact that in the centre of this programme is Mick and Beth. You aren’t overloaded with characters, and questioning wait, “Where did he come from?”

The Trailer for Moonlight

IT’S VAMPIRE WEEK!

Ok, it isn’t an official holiday so put way your fangs and dramatic black cape… if you really want to. If that sort of thing is normal for you then, keep doing what you are doing. For the next week, we at Well Did You Evah will be writing about something Vampire Themed  every day for a week to celebrate the anniversary of Bram Stoker’s Dracula being Published 27th of May 1897.

bram-stoker-dracula-1
To you modern day 21st century people, yes there were vampires before Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight- Believe it or not The Vampire Diaries (Books by L.J Smith) were out before Twilight. Vampires were first created to be scary and not in the Edward Cullen – (the character played by Robert Pattinson in Twilight) style of, “Oh I need to scare you off because I am no good for you, woe is me. I want your bloood! No I keep away from me Bella!!”- I’ll stop there… The original vampires would have killed Bella on site, or they might of possibly raped her first… depends if you are taking an Anne Rice take to vampires. Well Did You Evah is celebrating a week of blood, and occasionally energy, sucking undead. As it’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula  116th  birthday! -on the 27th of May- (the book, not the author or Dracula, of course if that Dracula is real, he will be much older than that and Bram Stoker will be slightly older than that… or has someone proved if Bram Stoker was a vampire?)

The myth of the Vampire was originally created in Europe, for those who need reminding of geography there is a really unclear map, just below, just to give you an idea of where Europe is. Most of the whole area included in the map, is Europe.

europe Many where killed in belief people were actually Vampires. There are many origin stories, one suggests the idea of vampire comes from a disease what gives traits of looking like the undead. Another one comes from Romania where an high ranking woman believed if she bathed in the blood of babies she would stay young forever.

Moraine_le_vampireEach country has their own myth, but each one relates to beings who carry traits of the undead and prey on the blood of innocent humans, most older stories showed these beings as ruthless, uncaring people who seduced and killed, hence why many were killed. Many believe there are not just one type of Vampire. Psychic vampires are vampires which are believed not to bite and suck blood, but only suck the energy out of people, when coming to horror movies though it’s not really that dramatic, plus there is occasionally confusion with this type of vampire and energy sucking, “Demons,” Such as Succubus’ (Watch Lost Girl if you want to see some awesome Succubus action).

Dracpos

Bram Stoker’s novel, is well known for popularising the, “Vampire Race,” Without this novel, Whitby Abbey wouldn’t be as famous, Romania wouldn’t be a Vampire hunting spot and many more vampire connections wouldn’t have made. We wouldn’t have seen Bela Lugosi perfect Dracula in the 1931 adaption, We wouldn’t have been able to drool (or in Well did you Evah’s ritual- drink Sake) watching Gary Oldman be sexy Dracula in the 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula. And we have to mention Leslie Nielsen’s awesome and hilarious performance in Dracula: Dead and Loving it. There are hundreds of connections to Dracula, from books, to stage to TV/movies.

Although in Classics sense Dracula is the most popular fictional vampire story, it wasn’t the first. Before that there was a story about a Lesbian Vampire-  Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and  a more, “Dracula,” Like character was introduced in The Vampyre by John Polodori. Even in film Dracula wasn’t the first. The Silent Movie Nosferatu was made 1922 almost a decade before Bela Lugosi crept on our screens as Dracula.

Back to this century-  *Gets in TARDIS*

The past few years young adult fiction have seen a more, “Friendlier,” Vampire arise, though series such as Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, House of Night By P.C and Kristin Cast, L.J Smith’s The Vampire Diaries (becoming more popular the past few years, originally the books were released in the 1990’s) Ellen Schreiber’s Vampire Kisses series, Richelle Mead’s The Vampire Academy series, (I’ve been told to point out that this includes dhampir’s=Half Vampires). They do introduce the old roots of the bad vampire but occasionally these just pop up to ruin the romantic connection, sounds corny but most of these books are that well written it does make you cry when some thing tragic does happen. Examples in Well Did You Evah’s lives breaking down because of this happening in some of these books= Natarii with Dimitri and Rose (Vampire Academy) and Cat with Alexander and Raven (Vampire Kisses) We will cry every time, but we will still keep re-reading them.

There are some authors who have tried to stick with the more eviler vampires such as Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series (Or True Blood, if that sounds familiar but you only watch the TV series) and Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires, we will only praise Rachel Caine, I have met her twice she is a lovely lady. Dark Ink Chronicles By Elle Jasper, Night Huntress by Jeanine Frost and occasionally Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neil will throw and evil vampire readers ways.

This is the reason The Dracula Book’s birthday has turned into a week! With the recent vampire hype, there are tonnes of TV, movies, books, manga/anime that can be mentioned. Natarii will be sure to do a post celebrating the Vampire Academy Movie, so look out for that, she probably has all the latest gossip and possibly the location on some of the actors/actresses involved.

Each day for the next week, we will be blogging on some thing related to Vampires, be it in book form, TV or film.

But I think I have explained enough goodbye for now…

Coffin

If you want to suggest something for us to write about, we are open for requests!

My top 5 fictional couples

It’s getting to that point where I’m getting pretty excited about the upcoming release of books it seems I’ve been waiting millions of years for, and yet I’ve only been waiting about 6 months. Yes some of my favourite authors are that good. I praise you all. Continue reading

Vampire Knight

Ok, I know we have mentioned we are going to be writing about Exhibitions and Films… But we all have to read right?… I will probably do more book/manga reviews in the past. If anyone has any suggestions on what to read (I’ve read The Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy (4 times… not sure why I’m proud of that) then give us a message and I’m sure one of us will get around to reading it… Natalie might be the best for proper books as I just write them. However, I will try and give a good/honest book review when I do get around to reading 😀

Image

I’ll admit my reaction of being shocked at the first part of the chapter then crying towards the end and then rocking backwards and forwards in denial has happened with nearly every new chapter of Vampire Knight the past few months.

So Manga/Anime fans!

If you have been to any Cosplay convention/party you will have probably have seen someone in the Cross Academy Night Class Uniform or Day Class Uniform. I’m not going to try and give anything away considering there may be those of you out there who are waiting for the Manga books to come out instead of doing the impatient thing of hunting down translators once a month.

Vampire Knight has slowly become a popular manga, created by Matsuri Hino (We praise you) early 2005 AND IT IS STILL GOING! However, one detail that made me sit in the corner and cry for a while was released in the latest translations of Chapter 88. Again Spoilers. I’m not going to say.

So, the story of Vampire Knight. These Vampires don’t sparkle… They are just really pretty. The beginning of the story is based around human girl called Yuuki/Yuki (Depending on the translation depends what spelling but they both are pronounced the same) Cross, a kind cheerful 15 year old… who can also eat a lot. We find out that Yuuki has no memories from before she was five years old, her first memory is of a snowy winters day. Enter *Fan girl scream* Kaname Kuran. Kaname saves 5 year old Yuuki from an evil vampire that wants to suck her blood- actioned packed right from the start- this reveals to Yuuki that Kaname is also a vampire. Kaname spends a lot of time trying to protect Yuuki. Again with spoilers I’m not going to go into it but I will say there is another reason for it other than Kaname is responsible for Yuuki as he saved her life.

Kaname leaves Yuuki in the care of Chairman Cross, a slightly… errm how do I put it… weird? man, ok he’s just seems to be really happy but you can tell he really cares :’). Although like most of the characters in Vampire Knight it does turn out he has a secret past later on in the series. Kaien (That’s the Chairmans real name) adopts Yuuki. This sets up the scene to bring in the third main character and second guy after Yuuki’s heart… *Drum Roll*  Zero Kiryu! Basically Zero gets brought to live with Yuuki and the Chairman after his family are killed by a Pureblood Vampire (Rule of Vampire Knight, there are different kinds of Vampires- humour is put into this as there is actually a hierarchy triangle placing where all the vampires are on it. Pureblood Vampires are the highest and rarest vampires, only they can change humans into Vampires and even then there can be consequences for said human. If the human survives the change the human will need to feed off of a Pureblood to keep their sanity, if not said Ex-Human Vampire will degrade into what is called, “Level E,” Which is when the Vampire Hunters can come and kill them as Level E vampires pose a threat.

Back to Zero, his family died, we find out he has a twin brother who is believed to have died, Yuuki spends some time bonding with Zero, we find out Zero has a real grudge against Vampires… Lucky Zero! The Chairman decides to open up a Night class for Vampires! And basically that’s where the story begins. Yuuki and Zero, as they know about vampires are chosen to be prefects guarding the Day (Human) class against the Night (Vampire) Class. The Night class is closely run by Kaname, who is sweetly keeping an eye on Yuuki.

Most fans split off into ZEKI (ZeroXYuuki) Or KanameXYuuki… I guess KanameXZero is also a big group as well…

It’s a Shojo manga so yes it has it’s girly romance aspects to it, but it also has everything else you could want from a story… unless you are being really imaginative. The Manga is available or there is seasons 1&2 of the Anime, however, the Anime has a few changes to it and unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be getting any more seasons to continue on the journey 😦
