So I read this in French and usually I review in French, but usually I also never read translations, so I’ll review in English . I expected nothing of it and indeed, the translation was terrible, but I actually really got into the story.

I thought that was kind of lame, as why would you want to be with a player? He’s not going to change and why would you want him too? Blah.
