On the wedding night, she was tied to his bed.

“Woman, you dare marry another man!”

He was like a wolf as he devoured her until nothing was left.

“So the person forcing me into bed was you! You beast in human skin!” She clenched her teeth as she pushed against the wall to stand out of the bed.

She, a king from modern times, was reborn. All those that owed her had to pay blood debts.

But this king of evildoers, she had obviously not seen him before. Yet, she had to repay him with her body every night……

I have never met a more infuriating and annoying villain (and side characters since everybody in this novel seems to be doing a spectacular job of pissing me off). I'll give the author props for giving the baddies more than the usual cannon fodder characteristics. However, it's been almost 400 chapters, can we please move onto a different stage of this terribly-created romantic tragedy? (I cringe at even mentioning romance since the actual romance parts are sparse and few) Seriously, a lot of these troubles are completely unnecessary and occur due to repeated bad decisions made by our heroine and male lead (inserted exasperated facepalm). Like, a divorce will be so close that you could almost touch it and then, "Wait, I'm actually in love with you and not your sister! Let's not get divorced after all and stay married!". This whole thing will happen in FRONT of the male lead who will be doing absolutely nothing because he's kind of powerless and useless. Oh, he's cute and adorable but still kind of useless.

Honestly, I'm starting to pray for the deaths of literally everyone at this point. One character has gone completely off their rocker and decided to do the whole yandere "locking up my love" thing (Okay, so maybe it was completely expected...) and it's making me wonder about whether to even bother with continuing this novel. I can say, with complete honesty, that I am currently much more invested in the royal aunt's love story than the main plot (which is a huge pity because her love story lasted about three paragraphs only and was already a million times more interesting).

So, final verdict? Read if immensely bored and feeling super good about humanity (trust me, it'll either bring you down from optimism to straight pessimism or you'll just hate humans for a few long hours). Other than that, male leads (minus a-hole husband—he belongs in a very special trash pile) are super adorable so at least there's some cute scenes?

Well, first of all... the premise wise this is NOT an original story for Chinese Web Novel. I REPEAT it's not original but the usual terrible husband and white lotus sister. We know how much this setting grows like cancer in web novel community next to IsekaI Reincarnation in Japanese web novel, but we can't stop ourselves from loving the various takes available anyway~

However this novel manage to have original takes in this familiar setting.

For one, she is not so ruthless and blindly seeking revenge to her husband and... more>> sister. She did humiliate them but she tried her best in getting the hell out of their way and live leisurely instead. She does fight back when she is cornered, but not overly so. She is a street smart and obviously have extensive knowledge about cuisine so she could have killed her annoying family members but she didn't.

Take note, her specialty seems to be detective like mind and smart mouth to swindle people. So yes, the meat of this novel is reading how cunning she is in earning money and defending herself. This could be boring for some since there romance is still nonexistent by chapter 100 as in... the possibly Male Lead didn't meet her properly yet. The synopsis is also hella misleading if you expect to see that scene by now, it's an intriguing synopsis but... yeah, annoying since we haven't get there yet.

So this is for patient reader looking for comedy and witty MC, as for romance... don't start reading this for it. You would be disappointed. <<less

Binge-read up to ch. 98 and wasn't bored even once!

Instead of your typical martial arts genius, godly doctor or incapable-dumb-dumb that can't do anything w/o a ML - she has the smarts, is a cunning independent fox, thicker skinned than your great-aunty and yet not a ridiculous "if she claimed to be second no-one would claim first" cheat bullsh*t in every area.

The only things she's working with is her great memory, behavioural analyzis skills and brains.

Neither is she a saint nor a ruthless person snapping necks or scheming... more>> kills.

In my opinion her way of revenge is rather refreshing and unique compared to other FL's.


Instead of stunning everyone with her beauty upon her debut, she makes herself look like a hideous monster to embarress her still-husband on his wedding with her sister - with all the officials present.

Or the way she orchestrated a symphony à-la-gas for the newlywed and court to hear and smell 😂

And that without using poison!

The way she cons her way through trouble and almost everytime being able to surpass the hurdle is quite entertaining. Especially her way of talking or resorting to... alternative options *cough* 😁

Of course it'd be boring if she'd be all-knowing and mighty : a few struggles won't throw her off that fast! (๑•̀ㅂ•́) و✧

And as Alina already mentioned the misconception some harbour : Her current/first/soon-to-be-ex-Husband Chu Shao Yang (I hope I remembered the name correctly) is NOT - I repeat- IS. NOT. the male lead !!! 冏

A little spoiler *cough* read the synopsis *cough*

His Highness the Asshole seems to be the nephew of the Emperor - so quite far away from having a shot at the thrown (>_>)


Haah~ And about the plot pace: I couldn't be bothered even if it'd take 1000 chapters for the FL to fall for the ML. If you are familiar with a few other popular CNovels, such things aren't even that worthy to mention. And compared to those - this Novel at least offers great entertainment instead of incredibly long fillers that talk in circles without having anyone take more than three steps in 10 chapters 冏


I mean she has thoroughly humiliated her husband, his concubine, escaped some calmaties coming her way already, taken controlled over key-servants in the wangfu, gained a certain degree of freedom without ass-band knowing, earned a fortune for a meal + found a source for money, met and attracted the gaze of the probably-ML and THAT in under 100 chapters! Hmpf!



Anyways, that novel's humor is quite to my liking - everone their own 😜 <<less

[Her husband isn't male lead. Emperor is male lead he is money boy she meet him at street] This translation is good I like this novel, it's all about having villain husband who tried to kill MC. He unable to kill her because our MC is cunning smart she strong. She make her husband powerless humiliation. This novel also has comedy part, has interested part.

Initially I thought that Hanawie was too tough with review & rating. Considering there werent any other comments here, I decided to give it a try and now I honestly find 2 stars to be more than enough for this LN.

78 chapters in and there has been no plot progress to speak of... it's all random things the MC is doing. Furthermore she is taking her situation way too lightly! I know it has a comedy tag, but her actions in face of the situation really don't make sense.... more>>

The MC and ML might be the only redeeming points of this story. Although it's too soon to judge that (im just guessing) <<less

INDIPENDENT Main Charecter- very good story the main charecter is not too cruel -she gets revenge in creative ways- Negatives- some of the maids were acting too unnrealisticly at the start name calling the princess to her face- also farting in front of king the prince should have called in sick so its a bit too much comedy.

the only negative is the chapters too short the translator is awsome

Translation is good. That's about all the good I can say about the story so far. Otherwise, it's so darn boring. I don't need a story to be super good to give it a good rating, it just needs to be entertaining. But I had to force myself to even get as far as I did, simply because there is absolutely nothing that ever happens, the bad characters are so cliche, and the maid girl to the MC is completely stupid and obnoxious.

... more>>

The story is set up with the always cliche trope of the viperous "white lotus" sister and her sucker lover/MC husband who is an absolute ass who falls for the sister's supposed "innocence". Except somehow the story even "improves" on it by making the lover/MC's husband a very special kind of "a-hole husband who belongs in a very special trash pile" as Hanawie called him. He's even more vicious and detestable to the MC than the stupid male suckers usually are.

The start of the story was good but as it progresses, the hype and interest decreases. So far, the story hadn't given me a reason to continue reading this till the raws. The goals aren't that clear and strategies are messed up. Anyways, I guess I'll read the raws if I really had no light novels to read anymore.
