Break Up, Next


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

Su Fu’s years of affections were gradually consumed by daily livings and the disgust of He Shaoqi’s parents. Father He’s indifference, Mother He’s unkindness and He Shaoqi’s infidelity finally made Su Fu feel unbearable and choose to break up.

Next: the next love, the next lover, the next family, the next – is Tang Sibo, is happiness.

Su Fu: I can’t even live well in an ordinary family. I can’t afford to live a life in such a prestigious family as yours.

Tang Sibo: It doesn’t matter what kind of family mine is. The two of us will live our own lives. No matter how prestigious my family is, I will protect you.

Su Fu felt that the most correct choice he made and the greatest happiness he had in his life was to live a life with the surname Tang and a life worthy of himself.

I really liked the concept of the story. Someone (mc) who, after 10 years of being abused, finally realized their worth and decided to get out of the suuuuper toxic relationship which made me respect him given that there has been sooooo many ppl that couldn't find the strength get out of those kinds of situations. I love his gentleness and soft-heartedness. However, I do think some parts of this story just left a bitter taste. Especially,

The sister and ex thing. It's such a what the fk thing

Also in the extra (side couple),


Mc's child and Ml's child got together in the end. I would've loved their relationship to stay pure and be like bro-cons to each other, that would've been quite funny.

This novel is ultimately about Su Fu's struggle to leave a toxic relationship and live a better life. It's a process. He's been together with his ex for almost ten years. That's a lot of feelings to let go off, even if his ex is a scum.

Yeah, Tang Sibo helps him out. But I think that even without him, Su Fu would still leave eventually. He's already at his wit's end. The only problem is that he needs to figure out what to do with Juan Juan if he does... more>> leave. He can't just take Juan Juan with him since the kid is 'legally' adopted by the He family.

I think the other review is too harsh on Su Fu. A lot of the BL novels nowadays makes it seem like homosexuality is accepted by everyone. For Su Fu, he's ostracized by everyone and find himself in a helpless situation with no friends and families. How many people can really pull themselves up from their lowest point without help? If it's that easy, a lot of people wouldn't have depression. Psychologists would be out of job.

Yeah, Tang Sibo lends a hand, but ultimately it's up to Su Fu to say that 'yes, I deserve better' and take that helping hand to pull himself out of the mire. And he deserves credits for doing that.

It's good to be independent. But can anyone say that they don't need occasional help from friends or families in their life? <<less

This novel MC just blames himself 4 everything that happens around him, which is sometimes frustrating, though novel is good in the terms of Romance Tag. But I just want to remind the Readers in Reality, if you face the situation as infidelity in relationship and betrayal by your sister and spouse (both faced by MC), there wouldn't be ML coming in your saddest n depressed situation, so we have to face these fact head on and stay strong to focus for tomorrow bright sunrise.

Don't just accommodate the wishes... more>> of OTHERS (like MC), Love yourself more such that you can love other and receive their love equally.

Fight for the bright future everyone, U can't have another present like now again, take care n stay safe... ? <<less

The main couple is cute I guess but this novel places an unhealthy glorifying lense on filial piety, especially when it's not deserved at all.

CW: f slurs abound, physical abuse, verbal abuse, bystander effect.

... more>>

MC's parents were explicitly physically abusive, especially his dad, in regards to him coming out of the closet. However MC just keeps asking his father to beat him more because "at least you'll still meet me". This novel has a lot of pushing for being submissive to your parents no matter how they treat you simply by virtue of them having birthed you.

And yeah, the parents do end up being more accepting of homosexuality, but they never face consequences for their actions and MC continues to believe it was his fault they beat him. MC is instead grateful they were able to forgive him for (rightfully) staying away after his attempts at mending the relationship were thrown back at him.


The kids are cute and all, but the glaring issue of MC being a filial doormat definition of Eastern Asian, particularly Chinese, ideals without any commentary being made about how harmful that kind of mindset is was too much. I say this as an Asian person who has witnessed this same behavior in my own community. <<less

Wow, I really liked this story. I was expecting dog blood drama but this was actually a sweet sweet romance story. Oh the scum ex and family were annoying and there were annoying characters that pop in once in a while but MC's resolve to leave, once made, is very firm and happens quicker than I expected. I thought it would drag out longer but it didn't. So this is mainly a sweet romance with two very cute buns and lots of family and happy times and some face... more>> slapping (satisfying).

And best part, many side CP:

there's ML's assistant and the lawyer with very cute cat and dog dynamics. ML's childhood friend and his lover, with this passionate sort of romance. ML's older brother and his cold face romance with the CEO of another company. And a few more that I shall not spoil. All eventually get HE though, really there is NO BE here for ANY of the couples. Believe me. In a way I almost felt that the main CP had the most tame and vanilla relationship but theirs is the really sweet one.


In terms of book length, I would say this is a slow burn romance. If you squint and do the math of the time line in the book, this is a fast romance. But I like that it isn't really insta-love and there's a build up to it but when it happens, there is NO misunderstandings, the characters are straightforward, they know what they want and they say and do it.

Overall, I binged the book in 2 days and have no regrets. <<less

Really liked this one! The MC's relationship with the two kids is really cute and wholesome. He is super patient and gentle and the kids are sweet in their own way. It doesn't linger too long with his previous bad relationship. The ML is supportive and kind as well! They make a really cute family.

Overall if you like cute buns then you'll like this story. It's also very easy to MTL

This is an unexpected treasure I found. The story is really great, as some reviewer has stated.

Yet, this is not a perfect story. Maybe with too much traditional Chinese value that not many people can get, I don't get it too tbh like the part where filial piety is in the foremost which the author portrayed ... more>>

as Su Fu 'willingly' got beaten by his father everytime and be happy after the beating. Like... wt?????


But again, it was just a small part of the story. I mainly like the process of Su Fu and Tang Sibo slowly falling in love, how they both gave their utmost for their dream 'little family'. Un, it's cute. And the side pairings too, they got cute endings. <<less

If you want to read a realistic, slice to life yaoi novel then this is it! This novel now has a special place in my heart, reading this really made me want to have a family of my own, this novel is just so warm and melts my heart.

Just give this novel a try and maybe try to endure the first 15 chaps ... more>>

of the MC being bullied by his bf’s fam

because it really really gets better later on! Also, this novel is very easy to MTL so I was able to read it cause I couldn’t stop reading!!

And the two lovely buns!!!

I knew they would be a couple too when they grew up!! I wish there was more extra chaps about them. Also some more extra chaps about Uncle Tang and his lover’s reincarnation!


Yes, some people might say that the MC is a pushover

especially when he was being bullied by his boyfriend’s mother (not the ML’s) but you need to understand that in a realistic world, not everyone has the courage to speak up and can just let go and break up with someone they loved for so long even if their love has faded because afterall, they did spend 10 yrs together but!!! Don’t worry, the MC let that scumbag go tho there wasn’t a revenge and so on it was still satisfying to see.


I love how this novel followed a natural way of development. And I love our ML! The ML isn’t the typical cold hearted rich CEO who only gets soft hearted for the MC, no no! The ML is a kind and gentle person who’s like that to everyone but of course when he fell in love it was so >///< <<less

It's easy to MTL so I read it in one go~

I love how the MC is so soft from the beginning till the end, but he can gets tough when he need it. He's not a useless and hopeless guy in love. I love how he is very devoted to his love yet can be brave to break it and try a new relationship. ML is also wonderful, along with the buns and their families. There's some conflict that made me feel sooooo nervous but it was resolved, well, may... more>> be not wonderfully, but it works the best for all of them. Try it please~ It's a healing story.


Although I couldn't agree with the buns growing up and become lovers but ig it's just me? It's in the extra tho so you can avoid reading it if you want

Wonderful story, just found it a few days ago and then bindged it (even mlt'd it). This is a wonderful story, and the side cp's are just as interesting as our main cp. Plenty of dog blood drama, but unusually enough some realism to relationships. This story has a bit of everything, even a touch if the supernatural, give it a try.

There have been comments about our Su Fu (MC) being too meek and a doormat etc, but I would say its more to do with his upbringing from a traditional household, and being filial. But also guilt, from reading it I could tell that the majority of the time when he let himself be used it was because he felt he 'deserved it'. He felt like he had disappointed his own parents by coming out so and not being able to fulfill his duty at the olden son. So he poured all of his energy to to his boyfriends (now ex) family even if they treat him badly.

When he found out however of his partners infidelity he made the steps to leave him, there were moments when he dithered but they were together for 10 years, That was his whole life after being separated from his family. Also having a child involved between them makes things more complicated.

I like the MC ! Some people hate how softhearted the MC is but I think his gentleness and softness is his strength. I do love tough MC with snippy or witty remark and good face slapping. But there is something endearing about this MC.

He is resilient, it does take him 10 freaking year to realize his worth and get away from such an abusive relationship. But when you consider his environment the way he grow up, his point of view and his condition. It takes such courage to left... more>> everything behind and start a new life <<less
