Hahahaha. Dear God. FYI, MC is named Fang Qiao!!! Not every baker mentioned in the story becomes MC. Lin Yao is MC's buddy who works part time at the bakery MC, Fang Qiao opened. A lot of people mistook LY to be MC because our MC starts off in a very pitiful state. He is requested to set up a date with LY by ML. So many people mistook that effeminate guy as the MC. He's not it!

Our MC is the silliest, sweetest shou ever! Even the slag gong becomes... more>> adorable by the end of the story. I have to say, I had zero hopes for ML even by the middle of the story. I thought he was straight up scum. But then we realize he's not really. There were people throwing themselves at him so he availed himself to them. Our MC is actually a unicorn among those selfish mistresses. ML is kinda so harmless, it's actually funny. His biggest threat to his relative was, 'See if I send you a red envelope this year'. Hahahahaha. I died. MC & ML suit each other. They can just be silly and sweet together, lol. The relationship dynamic switches so completely but seamlessly by the end of the story. It's amazing! I wished it was longer and we got to see the story of the side CP too. Also, one of the few good translations on this website. <<less

  1. The MC is Fang Qiao. The first chapters are misleading. He is the s*upidiest cutie MC, I have ever met. Mistress for 3 years, no benefit at all and still grateful ?! I cant wait to see the ML (amorous cheating philander type) to fall for him.

It was alright. MC really got on my nerves with the way he was acting. Like you know his dude sleeps around with any and everybody that comes his way and also has not helped you out in your career for 3 whole years and yet you still act like a lovestruck idiot. I really don't understand.

First half: MC (FENG QIAO [cause it's easy to mistake at start]) enjoying himself being a sugar baby while opening a bakery and being a walk-on actor as a side business. (Yup, Business: Bakery, Side-business: Walk-on Actor, all cause he knows well that his sugar daddy is ain't that reliable [in fact, they never are]).
Spoiler

Suddenly though, he's been introduced as a (fake) bf of ML to ML's family increasing their contact with each other.

[collapse]

And ML (LU YUNZHAO) enjoying himself walking through bees and butterflies and also calling upon MC when needed to vent.
Spoiler

He had to ultimately take him home to introduce MC as his (fake) bf to prevent being married and to act thoroughly they increased their contact.

[collapse]

Second half: MC falling in love with ML all the while knowing how big of a scum ML can be. So, the instant he realised his feelings he also realised the danger that accompanied it (that of his heart being broken).
Spoiler

He went for his bff's advice who told him to confess directly (cause anyway if ML rejects, he had to leave ML as MC planned).

[collapse]

As for ML, he slowly started to like MC to the point he didn't even notice that the amount of lovers around were decreasing (until his assistant tells him [poor his assistant who has to remember each and every lover of his as well as the reasons he dismissed them]).
Spoiler

But then MC leaves ML (due to misunderstanding[2ch short]) and soon ML realises his feelings as well upon being enlightened by his friend (or assistant?) and starts pursuing the MC.

[collapse]

Fluffly at end. A happy bakery owner with a happy entertainment company boss. Also a short read.

No 10chaps misunderstanding. No MC whose brain goes into pit after falling in love. No ML who takes 20chaps to realise that he fell in love. No ex-white moonlight who suddenly turns into green tea and fights. No childhood-hidden-admirer who couldn't come over his love and had to spent all his heart to MC throughout the novel without getting married/falling in love, etc.

If I could I would provide therapy sessions for the people that rated this story 5 stars..... The plot just boggles my mind. Scum ML, emotionally s*upid MC who I wished instead got together with his childhood friend!!! I guess the novel is just not for me. I am so easily triggered with the lack of self-love and self-respect the MC has for himself, and letting himself be used as s*x relief. Call me blind but I cannot see where and why the ML had begun taking interest - are... more>> you seriously telling me MC's drunken stupor/forced kiss at a party was enough to make him pay attention, even after three years of having this sugar baby/daddy relationship? Even when the ML himself admitted that MC isn't that amazing in terms of looks, and that he's immune to people of outstanding appearances as an entertainment company boss.. I kept reading hoping that MC finally wakes up and leaves that man for good, but it's going in a complete opposite direction. Judging from the rest of the reviews it looks like MC and ML get a HE. RIP, will have to look for another novel to cure my pained heart and emotional damages from reading this. TLDR; Feelsbad for MC. <<less

Omg! A must read if you are into fluff novels.

Cuties😍😍

This novel deserves more than 4 stars.

... more>> You can read it in one day. It's quite short actually.

You can find complete translation of the novel on other sites.

MC is a cutie. I like him so much. One of my favorite suger baby character. I like him for not being pretentious for the sake of it. He is a suger baby and quite enjoys it until he fall in love of course.

ML I like him as well. He is not a scum, okay. He has many lovers as a suger daddy. No need to get angry with him that he had many lovers etc etc. It's not like he cheated on the MC.

He was extremely good to the MC afterwards.

Romance

There was no unnecessary drama. They didn't hurt each-other like dog-blood, lack of communication novels.

There was no denial once they realised their feelings. The ML pursued the MC in a straightforward manner right after that.

They are sickening sweet after getting into relationship. Actually even before that as well.

They are quite intimate. Even though there is no detailed smut I still liked it.

(I do prefer the bl novels where there is mutual intimacy between the couple)

It's a good refreshing read.

I might reread it to fulfill my fluff cravings.

Comedy is good too.

Totally recommended. <<less

I'm mostly rating this a 5 to up the ratings a bit. And I think it should get points for how fresh this kind of relationship dynamic is. MC and ML are two individuals who live authentically to themselves. They're both very clear on what their separate wants and needs are. It's not the usual op couple that only has eyes for each other, and are plagued by surface-level conflict that don't actually impact them very much. Characters are proactive in their decisions and conflict comes up as a result... more>> of their decisions and not because others have arbitrarily decided to retaliate as a result of a precieved wrong doing.

Spoiler

MC from beginning to end is very clear that he works so he can fund his business ventures. He wants to bake and open more bakeries. His career is a means to an end. His relationship to ML is purely transactional and physical and he's aware that it means little to either of them. But it's also apparent that they both benefit from it; it's not ML taking advantage of MC's feelings. Which in the beginning he does not have. When he realizes he DOES have feelings for ML and misunderstands that it's not reciprocated, MC immediately breaks it off with ML and tries to move on.

Initially ML does come off as a terrible person who sleeps around, but he is not taking advantage of the people he sleeps with. And it's actually ML who goes through the most character development. From a superficial sleazey commitment-phobe to a full on romantic. And it's more believable that his s*x drive had already been high prior to MC.

To be honest, they aren't the most fully fleshed out characters ever, but it does what it's trying to do well. It's paced well and the conflict isn't filled with contrite cartoon villians that only throw themselves at the MC and ML as canon fodder. For instance one of MC's 'rivals', but really just another person ML was sleeping with in the beginning isn't bent on getting revenge on MC for monopolizing ML. He quickly moves on to MC's childhood friend and even kind of befriends MC, because in the end there were no feelings him and ML. Another thing I appreciated was how ML's relationship with his family is complicated. He kind of resents them, but he doesn't want to completely cut them off either. Everything justs has a touch more believability than most other novels of similar genres. This isn't important, but the least interesting character is probably MC's childhood friend. They establish that he's in love with MC, but he doesn't have much of a personality besides being a cold-faced beauty. And he quickly moves on as well.

It's a short novel, so it's still quite enjoyable.

I don't mind ML's scummy way, as it's quite normal for rich ppl to do so. Moreover, at that time, MC and ML are not even in love together yet.

At first, I dislike the ML, but it's was just a clear misunderstanding by the MC. Even though this misunderstanding resulted in MC not able to go back to acting, but it makes ML realised that he loves MC. I like the part when ML tries to woo him.

Gonna rate it 5 cuz why the hell is the ratings so low!?

The title nakes this look like a novel about a walk-on actor who is in the journey of being a baker, really it's not. At the start of the story the MC already achieved that. Hmmm-

It's a light read (dog food is in the latter part; not much angst, more on light comedy) and it managed to keep my interest till the end.

Btw this is already completed and you can read it at listnovel.

I cried. The last chapter was heart-warming.

At first I thought ML is a scum but after few chapters I realized I was wrong. He is like a bear kid.

And my baby MC! I really want to hug him and pat him.

Finally he can have a family.
