I Accidentally Saved the Male Lead’s Brother: Webtoon/Manhwa Review

After I joined a group of manhwa enthusiasts, not a day goes by that my list of TBR manhwas does not get any longer. Anyway, stumbling on I Accidentally Saved the Male Lead’s Brother is a happy coincidence.

Synopsis: Lady Charlotte Rania is living a life as a minor aristocrat’s daughter. But before she came to live this idyllic life, she was part of a different world. She was a high schooler who died in a traffic accident and found herself reincarnated inside a novel she was reading at the time. While she was content to simply live out her extended life in peace as an unmentioned side character in the tale, fate has different plans and she soon finds herself accidentally saving the main character’s brother from an assassination attempt. The side character now finds herself in the spotlight, engaged to Duke Carlyle Heinst.

As far as manhwas go, this is not the first time that the FL is transported from another universe as a side character promoted to a lead position. Still, I Accidentally Saved the Male Lead’s Daughter has a charm about it that will get you hooked to the series straight off the bat.

First, because Charlotte knows her place in the pecking order of the novel, she tries to become as low profile as possible. She does not want for too much and tries to suppress her budding feelings for the ML, even trying to fix his family problems as quietly as she could. She also plans to fade into the background when the supposed FL arrives to the scene.

The problem with this scenario is that bad things keep happening to ML’s baby brother and ML is quickly falling for FL and her kindness. Sure, her secret origins remain a problem, and her inability to tell her love interest all that she knows about his family is a problem that will be dealt with in the next chapters. But for now, the love story is unfolding so sweetly that it’s just so difficult not to cheer them on.

The duke has turned from a recluse to a person who tries to deal with his grief. He tries as best as he can to express his feelings for Charlotte and he does his best by Theo. Charlotte on the other hand, bless her heart, is willing to lay her life on the line for the Carlyles, and that’s the kind of person that readers can truly get behind. Also, it turns out that Charlotte and Carlyle do have a backstory way before her saving Theo and its pretty interesting to see how this will conflict with the arrival of the real FL.

This story has only touched the surface and I hope that the author will work faster to keep new chapters coming. I, for one, am excited to see how these two will finally confess their feelings to each other and become a real family. It’s also interesting to know how the mysterious Edgar will work himself into the picture. Could they not pair Edgar with the FL and let Charlotte and the Duke be together?
