Blooming Romance


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

After receiving his terminal illness diagnosis, Chu Xun could finally let go of everything. The most important thing of being alive is after all, one’s own happiness.

Dumping a jerk, getting back at his as*hole colleagues, firing his dumbass boss, staying in a luxurious house, enjoying a feast and bedding a young, energetic and handsome guy—Chu Xun very coolly did what he didn’t dare to do in the past!

All his savings were spent and as he laid down waiting for his death, the doctor apologetically told him, “I’m so sorry, we misdiagnosed you.”

“…” Chu Xun felt faint.

He did another checkup and thought, he did feel unwell recently though?

The doctor looked grim.

Chu Xun’s heart skipped a beat. “Don’t tell me it wasn’t a misdiagnosis after all. Am I sick?”

Doctor: “You do not have a terminal illness, but you are… You are pregnant.”

Chu Xun: “???” Ermm, he’s a guy?

And later, the child’s father, that young, energetic and handsome man, who also happened to be a 26-year-old billionaire, Lin Yanchen, appeared and handed out a marriage certificate already signed by him. “I’ll take responsibility. Let’s get married.”

Chu Xun only realised now that his 30-years-late love life, as though blooming blossoms, was flooding in.

I haven't read too far into the series, but I am really enjoying the MC and ML's interactions. From what I can understand through MTL, MC, believing that he was going to die, decides to live the rest of his life to the fullest. For 10 years, he stayed with his so-called "best friend" because he liked him and was willing to do anything for him for free, such as running errands and doing chores. He asks for small things in return like celebrating birthdays, but this "best friend" of... more>> his always replies with "Oh, I forgot." MC lived in a relatively conservative household, and due to his feelings towards this "best friend" and his desire to avoid blind dates, he admitted that he liked men and was disowned. He was essentially the hardest working person at his company, where he worked for 7 years, and was tired of babying his boss.


As stated in the summary, he leaves these shackles behind and decides to take all of his savings and spend them on anything he could think of. One of which is sex. Hahaha. He regrets that he was never really intimate with anyone and hires ML, who was drunk at the time and stumbled upon MC's hotel room, to be his lover for a month. ML finds that MC was quite interesting. MC seems conservative but at the same time, quite wild. One of the first things that MC asks for was to go skydiving! LOL. Later on, MC and ML go to Las Vegas. Normally, the routine would be MC making the request to go to certain places and ML would comply to them. MC makes it a secret that he is going to a strip club and gets ML really jealous. I think MC was going to throw money at the boys on stage, but ML stops him, saying something along the lines of "You have me in front of you. I am better than those boys!" Even after leaving, MC is still thinking about touching their bodies. When ML stopped him, one of the boys called him onto the stage, but ML took MC away. ML was like, "You're still thinking about them, aren't you?"

There are sweet moments though. MC truly wants to be with someone he loves and keeps thinking how he hoped that was true in his next life. When they went to Las Vegas, MC asks to go to the marriage office to get a certificate. He wants to have it to look at when he flies back home. He wants to have it cremated with him when he dies... When he sleeps, he would get nightmares about being ridiculed for liking men, and cries, which distresses the ML. ML wants to get closer to MC, but MC wants to keep some distance because I think he doesn't believe that ML really likes him. MC thinks that ML is only keeping up the image of a lover because he paid him off (but ML is already rich.)


Really cute series so far. It's worth a try! <<less

The MC it's such a good and caring person and the ML has a puppy like personality and I love it, their interactions are very sweet



there's a little bit of drama when they split and later when the born of the baby and everything but it was not to much, so I was pleased with it.... cus I can't handle drama


Love this novel and if you are an impatient bit*h like me, you can translate this with Google without burning your brain, so go ahead XD

First, I like the ML... IDK, I have a weakness for the puppy-type gongs so I adore the characters already. A gong that looks cold at first glance but blushes in front of his little shou. Isn't he precious? As for the plot; basically shou thought he was dying so he decided to throw his doormat self off and splurged his savings on a rent boy. In comes a similarly frustrated rich boy (ML) who wanted a difference and pretended to be the prostitute instead. They developed feelings tho and... more>>


the ML intended to admit his identity but the MC, who already had a hunch does not want to hear it bcos he knew it was useless since he's dying. He disappeared to some China countryside and intended to silently fade away but instead found out his weird constitution and is already pregnant. His own misunderstanding of his body's condition resulted in the month-long misunderstanding between the pair. However after that, it became a warm family drama with parents and friends learning about them. And oh, abundant dog food in the middle of it for the poor single dog friends and acquaintances.


The drama is present but not to the point of being dog blood. (some other reviewer find it as dog blood but as a dog blood fan this story isn't that much of a drama to become dog blood... I don't think so) Instead, I find those drama parts touching since the plot is more about acceptance and family love so I'm pretty sure it's not just me who shed tears on the parents altercation part. Only downside for me is that there's not much appearance of the little bun. <<less

It's a good romance story. Definitely not too much unnecessary drama and cliche plot. Fluff and sweet! And I absolutely agree that it did a big damage to mentality over us, the single dog society.... sigh.

It has the sama taste as Begging You to break off this engagement for me. Though the plot and the setting are different, but the sweetness and the overflowing love and care the gong has for the shou are the same! It has the same color I think?

I saw some other reviews that claim that there were s*upid misunderstandings and stuff but.. No it doesn't. In my opinion, the MC's reaction towards these 'misunderstandings' were perfectly rational and within his character. Plus, it's only natural that there would be misunderstandings and things that that they had to deal with because they were finally starting a serious relationship. They needed to build trust with each other.

It's the review from idkvan that exaggerated how the MC reacted when those 'misunderstandings' occurred. It made him sound like one of those... more>> wives that act overdramatic in front of their husbands. The review is total bs btw.


I know I still haven't read the whole novel yet but right now, what's being focused on is not just the relationship between MC and ML but their life outside the dream-like state it was when MC thought he was gonna die at the start at the novel and started living like each day was his last. Now that he knows he isn't gonna die and he got his lover back, they have to deal with their work, their family, their freaking baby (which I don't blame the ML for being too inexperienced in btw. He's a bit immature about it now but you gotta wait for him to grow) and ofc their personal relationship.


Their isn't much drama atm. The angst only really lasted till the part where he found out he wasn't going to die.


Honestly, I was a bit disappointed with how their reunion went but I can't say I expected much either. Their relationship is realistic in the aspect of the couple's interactions


I gave it a four star because this isn't really the type of genre I like to read. I mostly read it when I have the time and I just happened to have all the time in the world today. I understand if this isn't really up to people's alleys because it kinda seems like a slice of life romance anime. That's all, I guess. Thanks for taking your time to read this <<less

I think the summary is a little misleading. Unlike how the summary makes it seem, this isn't a pregnancy story where fluff happens while the MC is pregnant. In fact, ML only finds MC, or to be exact, MC manages to contact ML a couple of months after the Little Bun's birth. The MC is your true career man. He isn't OP or godlike in his business skills, but just realistically good at it. He doesn't work for some kind of fame or reputation, he just is a hard working... more>> and conscientious person who lives to fulfill his duty as a person of society lol. He likes working, he ain't no kept man. ML also understands this and does no powermove to have him work for him. They separate work from private affairs and maintains the power balance in the relationship.

The story focuses on how the couple falls in love within the month they are together, and after their separation, everything basically clicks into place. On one hand, some may think it lacks tension (dogblood drama), but on another hand, it's a testament to how all the characters are humane and mature. No one dimensional side characters, even the lazy-ass boss in the summary turns out to be very interesting.

As for the main villain, it's the MC's first love, but he manages to fade into the background. He still manages to commit a grave wrong in the story, but it isn't so consequential.

It's actually quite refreshing to see a couple who just ignores unnecessary drama and just dives back into each other's arms with a snap of a finger lol. No dragged on misunderstandings other than the what's already given in the summary. A decent light read.

I really wanted to like this because in the start MC and ML's relationship is really sweet but I was disappointed with how the author chose to create more "plot, " if you can even call it that. But really, it's misunderstanding after misunderstanding; one avoidable mistake after another!

I like drama and even a bit of tragedy, (anything that get the tear ducts working) which there is plenty of, BUT I don't like s*upid, dog-blood scenarios!!!

I just want to say:



... more>> Okay personally, I think the story is very cute. It's basically about 2 men falling in love in such unexpected way. Very bittersweet, but don't worry the drama isn't much. I did cried a river at the firsthalf of the story, well maybe it's just my...... hormones?.... lol. The MC is capable and ML is lovely, see it's not your typical BL story~

Overall this is a good read, especially for those who're looking for sweet and light story to read. <<less

Lots of dog blood... still in the tolerable range but melodrama isn't really my cup of tea. Luckily MC isn't the kind that's annoyingly indecisive and he's also capable of supporting himself.

I just want to say that this is my first time writing a review, and this novel is phenomenal! There are your typical misunderstandings but the author has a really nice way of controlling time in the novel, the characters are really well-thought out. There's none of that 300 chapter long conflict, some parts are a bit iffy but I do love this novel.

It is Mpreg, but regardless of that, it doesn't hinder the story. It's such a heart-warming and sad (at the beginning) story. I would totally recommend this... more>> for anyone who wants a really fluffy and logical story, the story actually makes sense and the MC and ML are perfectly capable people. The realism also just adds that *chef's kiss* to the story.

Definitely read it! <<less

so touching... so sweet, in some parts I was crying. The MC and ML made a perfect family...

I think, it will only happen in fantasy, how envious. That's why reading this novel gave me a bittersweet aftertaste.

I really enjoyed the beginning of this novel but then the author developed water in their brain and decided to make up new plot points and destroyed an otherwise good story. The author created s*upid misunderstanding after misunderstanding for no real good reason. I am a fan of a little angst and melodrama HOWEVER the way the author developed the misunderstandings is really dumb. The MC is one of the most unlikeable characters ever.

... more>>

The MC learns that he actually isn't going to die but have a baby and yet keeps it from the ML because he claims he can't find him, which is dumb considering he didnt even really search AT ALL. Fast forward a long ass time the ML stumbles upon the fact he is a father and tries to make moves to be closer to his child and the MC that live in another city yet the MC despises him for it. Like... what???? The MC makes so much needed drama and misunderstandings, I feel bad for ML. These are just two examples, dumb misunderstandings KEEP HAPPENING. Like the ML gets photographed next to a woman. OH HE MUST BE CHEATING. Like wtf???


I had to add the misunderstandings tags because I want the next reader to know what they are in for when they read this story. I wouldn't have read this if I knew !!! <<less

I haven't read half the novel yet, but I think its close enough to say I'm exasperated! I came for the fluff!! Where the hell is my family fluff??? I was NOT told there would be so much drama so yes, I'm a little disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, the drama makes sense and it's nothing convoluted but I really don't see the need to make it this long.

Actually, no. It is a well written story, I just came to it expecting a very different one, so I'm a little impatient... more>> to get to the part I want. So be warned for the drama!! <<less

(c8) it's super cute, yet it also raises a lot of good questions about what's important in life and how to live it.

I'm a bit sad the description is a big spoiler as up to where I am, our character still believe he's sick. At the same time I would not have read if I did not know. But still some surprises could be kept

I rate this a solid 3 stars. At first I really liked Chu Xun. There were times when I teared up so much. Those moments with his parents were so well written.

... more>>

When he told them about his terminal illness it was heartbreaking.


But I found him to be quite self righteous in many things he did. I think the author majorly dropped the ball in regard to his development. However....


He had a child for 2 years and didnt contact the father. He knew where he lived in England, he didnt look at his social media... his excuses or not contacting him for 2 years were ridiculous. The reunion after 2 years between the MC and ML and him finding out about his child was the most unrealistic scene I have ever read. MC became angry with the ML for wanting to work in the same city as him and his child...A bunch of different things with his character began to irk me. My favourite character is actually Chu Xuns father. I found him well rounded and likable.


I usually MTL any bl I enjoy but I think I will wait for the translation to see how it ends. It really isnt worth the mental strength it takes to fully understand MTLs. I do recommend you read if you arent irritated by poorly written scenes. What made me finally abandon MTLing this was that each important scene after the and MC has reunited was poorly written. There were major tearjerker moments and funny moments and also moments that are so sweet your teeth will hurt. I did enjoy this at first and I am certain you will too. I do think this story is generally likable but I am also interested in well written scenes and I do think the author messed up in some major ways in regard to this which made me lose my enthusiasm. <<less
