Sergeant Xia Yao, born into a wealthy and renown ancestry, is a playboy who has turned over a new leaf. Yuan Zong is an ex soldier from the special forces who opened a bodyguard training company after being discharged.

When Yuan Ru, Yuan Zong’s sister fell for Xia Yao’s charms, but could not break down his erected barriers, she came to Yuan Zong for assistance. Little did she know, the moment Yuan Zong saw Xia Yao, this ex-special force knew no other person would ever catch his eye.

And so begins the battle between brother and sister for the most coveted price – Xia Yao’s heart.

Dropped it because

ML is too much of a stalker for my taste. Everyone else seems to gush about his feelings or laugh at his "doting" actions, but it creeps me out. Poor MC is being tortured. Even his pet is getting tortured. How would you feel if you decisively dislike someone, yet find him RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR BEDROOM WINDOW?! F--- creepy! And how would you feel if your cherished pet is being bullied by his pet? As in, ML PHYSICALLY INTRUDES INTO MC'S ROOM TO PLACE ANOTHER ANIMAL NEAR HIS PET TO BULLY IT!


It's an unhealthy relationship. I suggest that readers NOT copy this type of "wooing" else they get sent to jail. <<less

I really didnt expect such a good story when I first picked this and boy was I wrong. This was honestly a really good read and I personally really liked it that I was practically listless for a day after I read this (upto the current chapter unfortunately tho).

The MC at the beginning comes off as kinda super tsundere but it's hilarious none the less.

... more>>

It may seem like his excuses make absolutely no sense and s*upid at times that even I just couldn't even laugh anymore (i swear that one time he used an excuse like the fog was bad for the skin so he was gonna stay at the ML s place that night cause of that). But this all kinda just clicked at the right place for me especially right after that scene where MC clearly shows that he has feelings for the ML too for the VERY first time (it was HILARIOUS and it wasn't even a bloody confession.... I think? XD, hint: remember the typhoon? :D). But more so than feelings their relationship has a fair share of building on lust and so on, especially the ML since he kinda fell in love at first sight with MC... but don't get me wrong the ML kinda reeeeally dotes on the MC so much that it's so cute and aww. But it got kinda weird that BOTH the ML and MC were virgins tho so there was no "upper hand" in their relationship when it came to"experience" in this *cough*criteria*cough*


DEFINITELY worth the read and the ML and MC might not seem on equal footing ability wise at the beginning but the MC is catching up with the ML so what can I say (although their relationship may seem a bit unbalanced it left room for character development (i think?) and it fit well together with the two of them and so on so I'm honestly happy with it). Anyway, can't say that it's a cup of tea for a first time BL/Danmei readers but without the smutty scenes (there aren't all that many actually until the current ch at the moment) it's a hilarious read for anyone who's interested.

As someone who reads quite a bit of BL, I reeeally recommend people to read this if you're looking for a BL to read cause it won't disappoint you, especially if you looking for a good laugh.

I'd honestly give it 5/5 but I'm holding myself back until the end of the novels, and also the translators are really good so cheers :) <<less

Awesome entertainment. Charismatic couple. Action packed story with enough mush and smex in the mix although realism might be tad bit wonky. The courting part was really fun especially in the beginning. That man was super persistent, super superglue-type, super patient, super caring, super doting, super passionate and importantly... a super beast in bed. That uke has no way of escaping such a perfect man and he even cooks like a 5-star chef! And and and looks like a supermodel. What more could you ask for? Come here my McDreamy!... more>> Muaks!

Sigh, what to say about this? I absolutely dislike the MC. There's a limit to being a tsundere and being s*upid but he crosses it. The scenerioes in the story are just wtf ish. The ML is not any better. Got in the way of his sister's wooing of the MC, stalked and harassed the MC. I suppose if you find that kinda thing fun, you'd probably enjoy this. Actually I have no problems with this scenario, my main problem with this book is the characters themselves -... more>>

you have an extreme tsundere MC, a Gary stu with stalker tendencies, a pick pocket who uses chicken blood to make another character believe that the character violently raped him, said character got people to gang bang pick pocket for robbing from him. The story is just a pot of wtf characters and wtf writing. My favorite character was ruined for no reason other than the author needed a villain and I guess ML sister is not villain enough material

. I really regret reading this and I'm a person who reads anything. <<less

Among all CJD novels I read (Counterattack and Addicted) this is the story I can’t forget. Just as Addicted touched my heart in different ways, AB has its own taste. I love the interaction between of MC and ML, and this is the first time I read BL novel with modern action. If you ask if I would read this again, A THOUSAND TIMES YES!!

Definitely worth the ride!

To keep it short, too many things that are done in this book and how they are potrayed just leave a bad taste in my mouth to the point where I was no longer really liking a lot of the characters. I admit I liked the domestic fluff that happens after the leads get together but that alone wasn't enough to save this novel for me.

I enjoyed it. I feel like people need to start thinking that this is just a novel, a fiction story. if you don't like what it contains then you don't like it. However to tell other people to not read it because they themself don't enjoy it is wrong. Just because you don't like it and comment about it, doesn't mean other people won't like it. And I also don't like it when people who hate the novel thinks people who likes it are crazy or whatever. I just see... more>> that a lot nowadays... sadly.

But anyway, this was another enjoyable read, however this was one one of the novel where I enjoyed the ML over the MC. However both suit each other very. The side couples are good too, however was hoping there could be more details of them throughout the novel, like more of there relationship progress... I just feel like it wasn't enough haha! <<less

It's bad very bad. I wonder why they shot a drama for this "novel". And I interesting how they did this.

I was read first chapter, first page and my eyes already was bleeding. What the picturesque descriptions fighting, people or anything at all. Their motivation and reasons their behavior are s*upid and senseless. Stalking, beating almost at first meeting.

But main thing this is horrible written. This is like bad fan fiction isn't seriously at all. MC is annoying me, I like ML even less.

It was a many time ago and... more>> I even dropped watching dorama, but I think it's was better. At least I can see real fighting instead this dull lines of text. I really can't understand "what they do?" But everywhere you can see this pathos from nothing and sexualization. <<less

Now this story isn't like an Addicated but doesn't mean the story isn't good. I like a gay guy froce a straight man to be gay. Xia Yao life became crazy when Yuan Zong came in the picture. Xia Yao is crazy in love with him and s*upid. While Yuan Zong is over proctect, amazon cook, and little bit of Saint. Now there are more s*x scenes than Addicted could every have. Mostly the story is about nothing and little bit of action. It get better in ch 130. ... more>>

They broke up for dump reason in 190 something. You got read it if they are going back together
