Adoptive sister falls in love with another guy and secretly dated him and eventually married him. Even though the MC never really confessed to her, I’m pretty sure she knows he likes her, yet she went after the cool guy. Felt like ntr.
The girl who expressed her love to him, end up in a coma and never recovered. Only after she sacrificed herself did the MC realized his love for her, thus starting his road of joining the dark side and becoming a wanted criminal.
The beautiful senior sister have a somewhat mutual love with the MC, though their feelings continued to remain ambiguous until the end. Due to the MC joining the dark side, they were like enemies similar to romeo and juliet. Also because of the coma girl, the MC couldn’t truly move on with her.
Until the end he never really acquired happiness. I know there is a Zhu Xian 2 which is still ongoing but I don’t know how that ties up to this story or whether the MC will ever have a happy ending.
I like how the MC is trying to be loyal to his girlfriend (though we dont know for how long lol), even though there are plenty other woman likes and tries to tempt him (albeit they are not aggressive in their approach). Also his harem members is diverse with unique and likeable personalities.
Another thing I like is that if you have read the authors other novel, they are actually quite similar in terms of how the story flows and character designs, and they have some connections with each other.
The story is not unique with twist and turns, but each chapter is entertaining because of how it’s laid out properly with a balanced formulaic design. The story is very lighthearted and relaxed, you can pick it up and down anytime.
The novel is also satisfying especially when the MC amazes everyone with his amazing skills in fighting, medicine, or wealth. Also even with his amazing sets of skills, he’s actually modest and prefers a low key life which is admirable.
Finally, unlike other novel with the same genre, the MC is not trying to build a thug life on the background which can get draggy and uninteresting, he’s dedicated in being a bodyguard and improving his cultivation to get stronger.
