  1. Thanks for the link. :)
    And there’s more Crown of Love reviews! The more reviews I read, the more I feel like I should be reading the title as well. Everyone keeps saying things like “I didn’t expect to like this, I usually don’t like stories with characters like this, but it’s well written and I want more.” It’s hard to ignore something like that.
