“I can’t bear your hypocritical actions any longer!” After Wen Niannan married Gu Yansheng for three years, this is the sentence that he had heard the most.

Ever since their wedding, the moment when Gu Yansheng poured wine on his head in front of everyone there, he realized that couldn’t ask for much more.

“Sign the divorce agreement and be gone!”

However, just months after they divorced, Gu Yansheng, along with some bodyguards, came rushing into his room.

“Nian’nian, you are the best! Let’s not mess around and go home with me, alright?”

“President Gu, have you forgot that we are already divorced?”

“Then we can marry again! But this time, I’m the one after you.”

Gu Yansheng, he thought, you are living a good life and getting what you wanted, but have you considered my feelings?

Please excuse my language but WHAT THE FLYING f*ck IS THIS?!

I just don't get it. I came here because of the manhua DESPERATELY hoping that ML would suffer so f*cking much before the MC would forgive him. But! All I got was a slap to my face!It infuriated me so much that I almost killed my poor phone!

This novel gave me nothing but absolute frustration towards the a** ML.

-1000/10 😤😤

Gotta go and read some fluff for my abused heart.

First, I read this because of the manhua. I can't handle the angst so I binge reading the novel. I love those "pay-back-to-bastards" story but nevermind payback, the MC is so so so frustrating. Period. The summary of the novel didn't even happen in the actual novel. The summary gives off the strong independent MC after being broken but meh. If you're worry for the MC then you can actually read this until the end because I do. It bothers me and before I knew it, I finished the... more>> novel. <<less

If you have any moral decency, I would advice you to please skip this novel considering how it shames and undermines domestic abuse victims.

There are absolutely no redeemable characteristics of the ML unless you count verbally and physically assaulting the MC, being a cheater, being manipulative, a public humiliator, and being an absolute deplorable excuse of a human as being great qualities of a loving spouse, then sure.

I absolutely abhor how the author tries to justify the ML actions by saying that he just has a "temper." The ML's family... more>> members and friends even try getting the MC to get back together with the ML by saying not to blame ML because he just has a bad temper. Like excuse me? There is a huge difference between having a bad temper and domestic assault. You can have a bad temper but have the basic human decency to know not to physically assault someone.

In addition to this, they tried to justify that all of these events happened because of a misunderstanding. A misunderstanding is NOT a reason to commit domestic violence.

Once the MC realizes the ML faults and finally leaves him, they take advantage of the MC years of unconditional love to get him back together with the ML. When the MC repeatedly states that he does not want to be with the ML again, the ML will say "When have you become so heartless?" That just sends major red flags considering how manipulative that sentence is. I'd like to reiterate how the ML cheated and abused the MC. Where was his heart when he basically committed crimes that could literally land him in jail? And now he's the one who's suddenly compassionate? Make it make sense.

The only punishment the author gives the ML is guilt. Which to me, sounds like a pretty lenient punishment considering how his actions eventually lead to the MC to suffer from PTSD, depression, physical challenges, etc...

And heres the oh so happy ending: the ML and MC get remarried. Being married and stuck with an abuser who's repeatedly assaulted, harassed, and cheated on you is not something that should be celebrated.

The only match made in heaven I was rooting for was the ML and prison.

I honestly hate how the author belittles the trauma. It does an injustice to victims who have suffered from abuse. Committing abuse is not simply a mistake. It is enforcing trauma on someone else.

I read a review on here that said that the MC was partially at fault for suffering from abuse. Talk about victim blaming. It was 100% the ML fault. There was absolutely no reason for him to abuse the MC. In fact, a reasonable excuse to abuse someone does not exist. And every excuse he gave to do so, made absolutely no sense. Talk about being a tr*sh person and victim blaming. Hating someone because of a misunderstanding does not equate to a reasonable excuse for abuse. Watching someone you hate play the piano does not equate to a reasonable excuse for the destruction of property. Disliking someone does not equate to a reasonable excuse for cheating. Finding someone annoying does not equate to a reasonable excuse to break someone's legs.

This author sends out the wrong message with this novel. In fact, it's disrespectful to even call this a novel. It gives off the idea that the victim will always be tied down by their abuser. This is enforcing the concept of learned helplessness, which is a serious matter.

Honestly... Screw this author and the stigma they instill. <<less

I put this as a 2 instead of a 1 because the author has such a way of making the ML the most detestable scum on earth!

Can you imagine putting your spouse into a coma and then running off to cheat with someone else? Me neither! Well, can you imagine the way you put him in a coma was by abusing him (which has continued for the past 3 years, all injuries were not treated in time, thus left physical trauma) and emotionally scarring him? Oh by the way, you... more>> were trying to force him to sign a divorce agreement by slamming him head into the floor!

Well, then can you imagine using a bat to destroy a piano his mother left for him? What about blatantly cheating on him, but then getting angry if the MC even shows a sliver of happiness to anyone else?

What irks me the most is the normalization of this domestic abuse in the novel. The friend that covers for the abuser's action, only to reprimand him but never notify anyone until the very last moment. The grandmother/mother of the ML who was oblivious to everything and found out, thinking that the relationship would stick if the two just "got to know each other better, " (and VERBALLY COERCING HIM TO STAY TOGETHER???) And the servants of the household... they've first hand witnessed the ML abusing the MC, breaking bones, bleeding on the floor and all the hurt imaginable. They would support the MC, but never really go against the ML.

I dont even know why this story is labeled "romance" and "slice of life, " in fact, I think this story should have an ABUSE WARNING??? I was expecting some dumb rom com by the way the description was written.

What even worse is that I KNOW the abuser will be forgiven. I KNOW he'll suddenly regret his actions and beg for forgiveness. As long as he shows affection, like, a minimum of 3 times, the MC will forgive him and love him. Because that's how normalized abusive relationship troupes are in romance novels.

There's misunderstandings in romance novels and then there's just straight up hate. The only times the ML seems to not hate the MC is when he's attractive.

SIXTY EIGHT. SIXTY EIGHT CHAPTERS (possibly more, I just can't stand reading this anymore) OF THE MC SUFFERING. IT DOESNT MATTER IS THE NEXT A HUNDRED OR SO CHAPTERS ARE SWEET AND LOVEY DOVEY. The ML puts the MC into the hospital so many times and even pushed him to death and to relive his trauma more than once, I cannot see these two come together. In fact, I think itd be more satisfying to put him with the second ML (like most abuser x abused "rom" stories) and to continuously face slap the ML.

Highly recommend to anyone just in the mood to cry and scold a slag. Don't recommend to anyone that want to actually see a healthy relationship built on trust and love. <<less

I really don't recommend if you've ever suffered any kind of abuse IRL; trust me, you don't need this sh*t and it will make you feel angry and helpless, and possibly trigger a PTSD episode or panic attack.

a story like this, with such an a**hole ML, should not end with enabling the abuser and placing his victim back into his hands. It should end with a huge lawsuit, jail time, and the MC moving on as best he can with his permanent physical and psychological disabilities.

it's great that the ML realizes he's sick and gets help, but there should be serious consequences for his actions; he had his chance with the MC and f*cked it up. Maybe he could have a loving relationship later in his life, once his treatment is finished and he's redeemed himself, but it should NOT be with the person he abused and damaged. There is no way the MC would ever be able to feel safe in that relationship.

on the MC's side, I have little understanding for anyone who willingly stays in an abusive relationship like that for three years. I have zero respect or sympathy for someone who escapes such a situation and then gets back together with his abuser. I think we're supposed to think it's a HE but it just churned my stomach and made me nauseous.

Who is this type of stories for? It's not the "abused MC overcomes his situation and gets away from abusive a**hole", it's "abusive as*hole ends up getting his way after torturing the MC"... like who enjoys this? I don't fan shame anyone, you can be into whatever you are into as long as it's not abuse stories. I can get people liking "abuse to freedom and getting empowered " in which the abuse is just the starting point to show how to overcome adversity. But an abusive guy getting his... more>> way in the end... what is the purpose of this story and others in this genre ? That you can cheat, beat the sh*t out of people and almost kill them and then all will be forgiven in the end?

And before anyone says "oh he tried to redeem himself and get help"... yeah well, then good for his future, just because he did that, it does not justify the fact that the MC went back to him. He could have killed the uke from the brutal beatings he gave him. If he sought help, it does not erase that... honestly this type of story bothers me so much especially the way it ends. If this ended with the uke finding someone else and slowly learning to be loved back, it would have made all the difference to show how an abuse victim overcomes their fear and all... <<less

Honestly I'm just going to give up on this book — I kept waiting on the scene where MC would finally divorce the ml, but that scene barely came. The ML is a huge A-hole, cheater, abusive, and etc; however, the book itself is very pleasing to the eye — if you feel like crying, or even cussing at the same time.

The ML truly doesn't deserve a second chance even if it occurred from a misunderstanding; I really applaud to the author who did a great job on making you... more>> feel aggravated by reading this novel.

I recommend this novel if you plainly wanna cry and cuss at the characters, haha. <<less

Stay away.

The author probably is in an abusive relationship as a doormat and this is his way of hoping his scum bf will love him in the end.

The abuse in this is real, but it is not reserved for just the MC. If you can't handle extreme violence... more>>

towards just about every character

and dog blood drama, stay away from this.

However, once you get past that and look at the actual story, it's really good. There's barely any plotholes that I've found

if you even consider it one, I don't recall the author mentioning when Xiao Li woke up, just that he's awake.


The author wrote this story super tight. If something is mentioned in the beginning, there's a reason for it. The side characters don't randomly disappear, they're part of the story, not just a plot mech.. even if you don't necessarily like the story, it is very well written. I even kept reading just to find out what would happen next.


Also, the MC is partially at fault for the abuse (not saying I condone it at all. I don't). If he had just told the ML that he's the one who saved him, none of the mess would have happened. And he actively chose to save the ML during the kidnapping. ML only knew he was saved by someone, not that MC was caught and tortured because of it. No blame can be placed on ML for 1st kidnapping.



The violence he gave to MC, it gets returned to ml, sometimes even ML doing it to himself. Also, first time I've seen a ML admit he has a problem and goes to a psychiatrist. 4 stars for that alone. Most of the time the ml's mental issues are glossed over because MC is ok with it.. or scared of ml... that does not happen here!


If you like well written stories, give this a chance. <<less

So stereotypical it hurts.

Scum ML.

Treated MC like dirt because he had to marry MC instead of his 'one twu love'.


One twu love is a fake white lotus who wasn't the real person he had fallen in love with in the first place. 2 guesses who it actually was and the first one don't count

I just can't even.

I tried, I really did, however this story is just.... yeah no 👎, just no 👎. I couldn't even get past the first sentence of the second chapter, so much abuse! And for what!?!? Love?!? Ugh! I absolutely cannot stomach this story!

The ML is an abusive d*ck who, from the looks of the other reviews, is going to get a happy ending with the person he is abusing!

I just can't even. I tried to skip ahead a couple of chapters to see if anything gets better -... more>> Nope!

I have never wanted a story to stop existing as much as this one.

Read it if you want, but I am putting this one in my top worst stories lost (which doesn't exists because I want nothing to do with it). <<less

I can't with this anymore. I know it's a "ML abuses MC, ML regrets, they get back together" kind of story but I just can't with it. The amount of abuse the MC has received had me screaming at my phone.

... more>>

The ML was so shameless. When MC was hospitalized, he wasn't even guilty about being the cause of it and went off with his lover. He accused the MC of cheating when he himself was with his lover right at that time. There was so much more than that but it angers me to write it.


I appreciate the translation though, thank you translator. <<less

Sorry for my bad English,

This is one of the novel and make my cry.. Maybe due to the lock down, im starting to read these novels

I'm not sure why I like to tortured my heart by reading this genre.

The novel started when Gu YS keep hitting and abusing Nian Nian due to for him the marriage between them is a forced married arrange by His Mother and he assumed that Nian Nian is only pretending to be weak and sick. I dont like his Mother who keep threatening Nian... more>> Nian when he agreed to divorce with Gu YS. She already saw what his son did to his Nian Nian and turn a blind eyes to the domestic Violence, everyone on the novel also didn't report the case to police. Lu Yun (the mother in law) also treat her another son Gu Lin very badly and even sent him to the orphanage.

But since this is only a novel we know that Gu YS will finally begged for forgiveness and Nian Nian will forgive him. I do think Gu YS is a dangerous person because once he know that Shen Luoan is only a fake person, he started to asked Gu Lin to tortured him again and again.

In the end I really hope that Nian Nian will choose Tang Shuo instead of Gu YenSheng.

Also everyone in this novels seems to only like their same gender.. Accept the mother in law and the butler haahha <<less

I have no particular thoughts about this novel. Most of them were already mentioned in the comments. However, the ending may have been satisfying if the MC and ML did not end up with each other again. I may have been glad if the MC only forgave the ML but never remarried him again asdfghjkl. The ML should have ended up with that other guy ig or any other except for that ML tr*sh. He kind of developed towards the end but the label "tr*sh" will always suit him, a "slightly good tr*sh" with a ML's halo tsk.

Maybe sad, the MC is quite useless. I haven't finished reading this yet. Still waiting for the black lotus to emerged. Is the black lotus mc? Maybe, who knows. Can't wait if the MC will retaliate. The ML is hateful. Just kill him can't ya!
