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 on his retarded 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.”

“…” 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 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

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

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

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?

Super cute and fluffy but the author couldve add more drama when they met again, and they should've stayed together to talk things out

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.

Waaaaa~~ T_T

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 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

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 stupid, dog-blood scenarios!!!

(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

Definitely different from most Chinese BL novels in that it is a

older, more mature, and likes to tease the ML, Shou x younger, childish, constantly being led by the nose, Gong

the gong first comes off as a capable cold and handsome person, but after getting smitten by the MC, he becomes super sweet and childish, acting as if he’s a child

... more>> the Shou at first is very depressed and closed off, but slowly warms up to the gong though it takes him a while to accept the gong’s affections

very cute story ! <<less

Stability of writing and nice characters that kept their brains earned it 4+, but the dramatic points dragged it down to 3.5+. Bit bumpy in the beginning-middle part but the characters will keep you coming back.

Slight spoiler:

... more>>

(+) story is fresh and fluffy, the setting of the world is realistic.
Even if the mpreg is not explored much it was handled pretty well, not just used to make MC/ML have babies and then forgotten completely.

(+) Interesting and not Sue characters.
Younger sweet doting ML and there's my favourite mentor-mentee relationship (pity it only appears once/twice). Mature and thoughtful relationship between main couple, such a delight to read~
Interaction with their child is cute without being overly showy. They are mature parents who doesn't spoil their child mindlessly, and we even get to see the kid grow up and learn about the world. The child's love future is left open, a peaceful HE. (I like this too! I don't want to think about babies getting married after I had just read about their parents TBH)

(+) Ending is written well, quietly beautiful like fluttering petals!

(+) Supporting characters have their own lives and thoughts, and capable of changes. I don't often like --everyone is gay--plots because it's easy to make it cheap.

(+/-) A lot of drama, but each progression still make sense in terms of cause and the characters involved. I only don't like that it's so heavy with sad, like I'm being spoon-fed telenovela. So much crying, so much self-imposed angst.....
