I started off on the webtoon and ended buying the novel off on Aladin.

There are 4 volumes, and each cost around $4. There are also special chapters available for purchase on KakaoPage.

This series will have a special place in my heart as it is the first RF novel I bought. It was my first reincarnated inside a book series (책빙의물).

Novel Introduction

Poisoned to death by her own betrothed?! Eunha didn’t wake up in a novel’s story just to get killed off again as an unfortunate extra! To change her story she needs a cover: 6 months pretending to be the fake fiancée of the novel’s male protagonist, Duke Noah Wynknight. But will this cold-hearted, angel-faced demon of a man really help her avoid another ill-fated ending?! Based on the hit novel. [Source: TappyToon]

Eun-Ha Bak found herself in a novel after a mystrious death. But the God left her with a big hurtle

“You look like you would die early”

The novel that she reincarnated in was one where she will die as an extra while living with a silver spoon. To avoid death, she traded a deal with someone worst than the devil.

“I wanted to offer you a deal”

“While I acknowledged your words, looks like it was just a boring joke”

In order to keep living, the secretive business between the extra reincarnated girl and devilish novel male lead.

‘Look at this! My body seems to be low on magnisium’ – Fruitlike freshness, Raeliana McMillan

‘You don’t seems to know that the words coming out of your mouth is garbage’ – Double-faced personality with the hidden feelings, Noah Wynknight

Their delightful and mysterous pushing and pulling life enlongating project!

Rating: 5/5

Overall I really liked this novel, while the side stories initially caught me off guard when I re-read it I was able to understand it more and like it. My favorite portion is the snowball fight chapter.


It’s been a while since I read this, but these are some points that I remember.

Goddess: Her appearance at the end confused me a little bit (especially the train scene). Long story short, Raeliana was chosen to play as Beatrice by the Goddess but the dark priestess changed the casting and turned Raeliana to Beatrice and vise versa via the original Raeliana’s request.

Skills: Wasn’t a big surprise that Raeliana has the language buff, but the gun skill buff came as a surprise. Also the MC buff of a beautiful face, but most of it comes from Nick and her personality.

Adam: Was surprised that Adam wasn’t written about more since he was my favorite. But he seems to be a really good uncle in the extra/side stories.

Other relationship: Naomi and the King’s relationship works out in the end, that relationship is something else… The prince and Raeliana’s daughter’s relationship seems to be complicated as well. The antagonist’s brother seems to be doing well traveling around the world (picking up mysterious books) and meeting new people.
