Broken Bonds

Description

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

Beitang Ao, Master of the Four Heavenly Sect’s Northern Sect, Ming Dynasty nobleman and inheritor of the title “King of Beitang” (Ruler of Beitang). He was elegant and cool as snow; but within his body, a peerless martial skill was contained.

Yan Feili, General of the Northern Sect, in his need to seek vengeance on behalf of a benefactor, met Beitang Ao and after being subdued, pledged his allegiance to the Northern Sect.

For eight years, Yan Feili held feelings for Beitang Ao. In the beginning, it was no more than a God-like reverence but gradually, it became a greed fueled admiration.

Following the incident in the Demon Forest, Yan Feili soon discovered he was pregnant. It turned out that Yan Feili was, to his surprise, a descendant of the “Moye” tribe. He kept his pregnancy hidden until the child could be born, but soon afterwards, was sent off by Beitang Ao, beginning the dispute between the two.

When all is said and done, how will these “entangled emotions” be “resolved”?

Entangled emotion: or deep seated emotions (literal translation: Complex), is a call back to the “情结” in novel’s name.

resolved: another call back to the title as the word “了断” can also mean to break/end.

The only person I felt pity for is the ML's wife. I don't understand why some of the comments are bashing her. She was just a pawn used in a political marriage, used as a breeding cow. I don't understand the hate she is getting. The wife suffers the loss of her beloved child, only to have the ML replace him with a child of unknown origin, expecting her to accept him as her own. This places an immense emotional burden on her. I pity her even more than the... more>> MC. How understanding can you expect her to be?

Even after marrying her, the ML couldn't keep his divk to himself. He and this sl*t MC still had the audacity to have an affair. The consequences of their actions have a profound impact on the wife, who experiences devastation upon discovering the truth about her husband's affair and the child he fathered with the MC

Why does she have to be the understanding one? If this were me, I would cut both of them into pieces. The wife's frustration is understandable given the circumstances, although taking it out on an innocent child is not justifiable. This is the only novel where I'm siding with a side character. I'm sorry, but I don't want to romanticize adultery. Put yourself in her shoes.

Actual Victims of the story

ML's Wife: She is a victim of circumstances, being married into a political alliance and facing betrayal and emotional turmoil as her husband engages in an affair with the MC. Her suffering is compounded by the loss of her child and the revelation of her husband's infidelity.

Children: The children born into this complex situation are also victims, as they experience confusion, instability, and emotional distress due to the circumstances surrounding their parentage and family dynamics.

Villains

ML: The ML's actions, including engaging in an affair while married and concealing the truth about the children's parentage, contribute to the emotional turmoil and suffering experienced by his wife, the MC, and the children. His behavior disregards the well-being of others and prioritizes his own desires. He is just a fvcking coward and narcissist. He just wants a hole to satisfy his divk and nothing else

MC: While the MC's actions may stem from complex emotions and personal struggles, his decision to engage in a romantic relationship with a married individual and conceal the truth about their affair also contributes to the harm experienced by others, particularly the ML's wife and children. If the roles were reverse he would be a typical white lotus bit*h or something. He is a fvcking whore. <<less

I feel so greasy after reading that. First of all the MC is cracked in the head. The ML had s*x with him, but pretended that nothing happened and got engaged. He even invited MC to his wedding. And the MC went even knowing that his due date was around the corner and ended up giving birth that same day. Then got his child taken away from him and he was clearly not ok with it. But a couple days after he and the ML were back at it again.... more>> This time he lost the kid. And all this was happening while the ML was still married. The ML says its completely fine for him to do so but if MC got married he would be really upset about it. What kind of logic is this? Kicked MC out for years because he thought they needed to cool down. Then followed MC years later and professed his love for him while he still had a wife said wife had even gotten pregnant with his kid and was forced to take this kid in while she was pregnant with hers. She even lost her kid due to smallpox but ML thought it would be a good idea to just find and replace the kid. No question there she got crazy, as any sane person should have gotten. But MC doesn't care that he's sleeping with a married man and said man took his kid from him to give it to his wife to raise without either of their opinion. He just wants ml. Who knocked him up again knowing that it could kill him, but so what the ML said he loved him. In other words, some truly disgusting human beings.

All those 4 and 5 stars rating. I just wanna know at what point did these people crack their heads? <<less

Why do people get upset when you give a poorly written story 1 star? It’s because the story is fulfilling some fantasy you enjoy and good authors don’t bother writing about topics you enjoy so you cling to t r a s h because... look, you don’t have to like it but don’t be all... “read it for yourself whether it is good or bad”. No. That’s the whole f r e a k I n g point of a review. Lol

CG has good stuff on their site but this... more>> ain’t one of ‘em. <<less

Because of the bad reviews, I think twice before finally decided to read this novel,

so I am here to tell you to give it a try and encourage you to understand another point of view.

at first I read another novel by author entitled "my wangfei is a man" and I quite liked it, it was funny and entertaining then I accidentally found an audio drama about their younger brother Yan Zi Xing story on YouTube. Long story short I finally found a large collection of novels written by this... more>> author from all family members whose stories are connected.

  • Legend of Maya (22/02/2022)
Tells the story of Emperor God Taisho and God Maya

Spoiler

Short stories about the origin of the maya,

it is said that in the sky above there was a man named maya who was once a human who fell in love with Emperor God Taisho,

Emperor God Taisho transferred him to the sky and cast a spell so that he could give birth, so that he would not leave the sky. Until the 19th birth, which was difficult, Maya almost returned to his human form and this baby was born in a half-human and half-god state and was given the same name as his father " Maya "

Little Maya longed for her father's hometown in the world, until finally he grew up he went to a tribe that lived at base of the mountain, that's where the legend of the Maya began.

    • Broken Bonds (15/02/2022)
I admit it I already knew this novel had happy ending before reading it, so it might affect my judgment. I listen to the audio drama first back in Aug 2020 and was hesitate to read the novel because of the bad reviews, so.... here I will say that the novel is better than the audio drama and I am happy that I read it

Spoiler

Beitang Ao is a person who has good looks, position, wealth, intelligence and skill in this world so he is very arrogant and selfish. Born and used to being served, all eyes on him, walking with hair blowing in the wind is a everyday things with "I Am Fabulous" written on his forehead.

This novel shows the process and character development of a cold-hearted person who never thinks about others, finally realizing that he too can fall in love even with his male subordinates.

Yan Fei Li is a loving character, he is 6 years older than Beitang Ao always takes care of him like a star beside the cold moon, because of his tragic past he becomes more concerned with others than himself, sacrifices everything for love, luckily he found his love one and was given 4 cute children, even though the process is not easy to find his happiness.

Lin Yan Yan is a beautiful woman with a tragic fate, who married under her father's political agreement. Thinking that maybe she has got everything, a handsome and rich husband, the marriage that all women dream of and than all are snatched away, because her husband fell in love with another man, brought a child into the house when she was pregnant, her own child died young and was forced to raise another child AGAIN, I think it's reasonable that she's turned crazy, even though I don't know how is she ends but I don't hate this character at all, it's very understandable that she goes crazy and ends up holding a grudge... who doesn't?

I am amazed by the author, where she succeeded building the universe and has written a story that will be told in another novel as a sequel, author manage to make me read her collection and keep me interested even though I had read her many stories.

She can share some clues that will be continued in the next novel whose answers will only be there...

What makes me curious is who are the father of the baby that Qiu doctor adopted ?

[collapse]

  • Cherish Fragrance (16/02/2022)
Tells the story of playboy Dongfang Xi and his general "Xiao Hua Hua" Hua Xiang Yan (who first found Yan Fei Li passed out in the snow that was about to gave birth), I just found out this novel will return to writing a review after finished it

Spoiler

Dongfang Xi famous for being a playboy, often going in and out of brothels, who knows he will fall in love with his loyal general Xiao Hua Hua.

Just like the Dongfang clan he is cute and funny, his nature is very similar to Dongfang Hao Ye his son, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren all inherit this attitude, the Dongfang family is very interesting.

Despite having a good name as a "playboy" he only loves his general hua hua (as seen with him naming his two children (from 2 other wives) with the homophone name "hua". The first child is named Dong Fang Hua and the 3rd child who becomes emperor is also named Dong Fang Hua) this character will appear in novel My Wangfei is a Man

Here it is told that Dongfang Xi choose to retired early with his general who had just given birth, because he wants to let go of everything and live only with the person he loves. It will be told later in other novel that Dongfang Xi died, I think he just faked his death to escape with his hua hua.

in the end it turned out that the brothel was a sect intelligence office, he was famous for going in and out of brothels... well he was just a very workaholic, not a playboy.

(I just remembered that his son Dongfang Hao Ye also went to this brothel to take care of sect matters)

  • Locking Love (21/02/2022)
Tells the story of Beitang Yao Ri (first son) and Beitang Yao Hui (second son "adoptive") listen to the audio drama first back in Aug 2020 and will write the review after finished read it

Spoiler

The author will tell a little story beforehand, so you don't have to worry about reading this novel out of order.

By reading this novel, it becomes clearer about the story from another point of view, for example, in this book, it is more clearly told that beitang yao ye likes dongfang hao ye and expresses it more than the original book itself.

Beitang Yaori and Beitang Yao hui brothers possessive love story. Due to past trauma and uncertain life, Bei Tang Yao Hui only depends on his brother, dependence turns into possessive love.

Bei Tang Yao Hui made a potion from his blood locking his love with Beitang Yaori so he wouldn't leave, luckily Beitang Yaori loves him otherwise it's quite torturous, they love each other even though they were raised as brothers.

What I feel sorry for is Ling Qing who still looks after the Beitang family even though his love is rejected by Yan fei Li, are all their secret guards not married?

Then of course Jun Ru Zhu is a character who only passes by, love Bei Tang Yao Hui secretly,

sacrificing a bright future in government to give birth to a child who wasn't raised by himself.... why live like this?

and here it is told that Lin Yan Yan had returned and lived in the kingdom for a year and because of a fire she jumped along with Bei Tang Yao Hui,

it's not told what happened when Lin Yan Yan was caught trapping Yan Fei Li, yes there are several holes in the story here

Here also briefly told about Yan Zi Xing, and his daughter Helena with Tuo Ba Zen. And to know their love story between two countries will be continued in the next book "Seeing the Stars in Prairie Love & Seeing the Stars and Chasing Love" this is two novel by the way

[collapse]

  • My Wangfei is a Man (10/06/2020)
Tells the story of Beitang Yao Yue (Third son "twin") and Dongfang Hao Ye (Dongfang Xi son)

This is the first novel that I read from the author's collection, the novel is very funny, even though the review was bad at that time but I still tried it and turn out I don't regret it, the story is funny and very interesting

Spoiler

Dongfang Hao Ye fell into a pool and then had amnesia. He just realized that he already had a wife "wangfei" and his wife was a very tall and handsome man.

Surprisingly he is only married by agreement with his wife, they haven't had a husband and wife relationship.

Here it will slowly tell you how Beitang Yao Yue character, who is similar to his father, is very cold and can't fall in love with anyone. Finally he fell in love with this young baby face teenager who is spoiled and always runs after him, and this love will make him gave birth to 5 kids.

in extra story Dongfang Hao Ye always wanted a daughter, unfortunately all his children were boys, finally he raised his 4th son as a baby girl, and the story of the 4th baby will continue in the book "Little Gr*pe Chasing His Husband"

UPDATE (20-03-22)

I found the book version, it is longer and some details are explained so that there are no misunderstandings, telling from Dongfang Hao Ye's point of view.

I suggest you to read the book version, it is more detailed and there are some plots changed so as not to make the reader misunderstand, I think the author is trying to show that in fact they both love each other.

  • Seeing the Stars in Prairie Love & Seeing the Stars and Chasing Love (20/08/2020)
Tells the story of Yan Zixing / Beitang Yaoxing (youngest son) and Tuoba Zhen

Spoiler

Yan Zixing becomes a general and goes to war... because of an accident Tuoba Zhen suffers injuries and amnesia. The moment when Tuoba Zhen woke up, Yan Zixing lied that Tuoba Zhen was his wife and they were an elopement couple. Tuoba Zhen is 8/9 year older than Yan Zixing (I forget already)

This story consists of 2 books, is the longest love story from all, tells the love between 2 people from 2 different countries and how they fight over their daughter

I can summarize that everything related to the Beitang family will be more serious and the story is more sad and complicated

(09-04-2022)

I reread it, it turns out that Yan Zi Xing went to save Tuoba Zhen who was imprisoned because of the Xijue Kingdom's internal problems.

During the rescue there was an accident and Tuobazhen had amnesia. The author divides this story into 2 books, it seems long but after reading it is just like broken bond novel, she just split it become 2 books. The storyline more detail when tuobazhen amnesia and when he comes back to remember everything, the author seems to rushed it. But overall the story is interesting.

They have 1 daughter and 3 sons. The last 2 sons are twins, all children with the surname Tuoba, but to be filial to the ming ancestors, one of the twins will be raised with the Beitang surname in ming country when he is 3 years old.

Thankfully after that accident he was saved by a poor student Tang Zhengyan who was about to take his imperial exams in the city.

When he was 5 years old he met 15 year old Feng Weng Xue, the Shenming sect leader a beauty with white hair and a mask, he fell in love and decided that he would be his future wife.

Here, he will tell you how his persistent and unyielding nature that his grandfather inherited successfully pursued the love of his life and he also chose a wife who was similar to his grandfather's taste.... cold and arrogant beauty. (same as Beitang Yao Yue)

Dongfang Hao Ye is very satisfied with his grandson choice, plus after waiting three generations he finally got a great-granddaughter, a total of all 5 great-granddaughters and 1 great-grandson, Dongfang Hao Ye's dream to have a baby girl came true.

I am not reading this yet

Spoiler

The author writing style in this novel is very different from hers other works, the plot is also different, it makes me curious and touch my heart made me cry reading it, the most touching than the others.

Here will be told about who is Qiu doctor adopted baby father is,

From all of these novel, this is the most interesting one, too many plot twists, really surprised me. Unfortunately in the second chapter I read the synopsis, otherwise it would be more surprising.

Liu ming was taken by his first sect elder brother Liu Yi Zhou to Lingyin (Maya people Hill). it turns out that Liu ming is the crown prince of the collapsed wei kingdom. His father and mother were targets for Liu Yi Zhou to kill. Liu ming loved Liu Yi Zhou even though he knew Liu Yi Zhou was pregnant and gave birth to a child outside the hills. After his big brother went missing he approached Feng Tian Yi to save Liu Yi Zhou. Initially you will be made to understand Liu Ming's feelings with his Sect Brother, how he loves and fights for him

you will be confused, who will Liu Ming be with?

After reading all of this maya collections, I am more understand about the stories, it's like playing a puzzle,

It turns out that the child that Doctor Qiu adopted is Liu Yi Zhou's son with Rui Wang. Rui Wang is a sick man who was treated by doctor Qiu when he was picked up by Bai JingYun general who rebelled against Xi Men Yue

Concubine Qing, Si Yao Hui's real mother (Bei Tang Yao Hui) is the twin sister of Liu Ming's second sect brother. Liu Shang.

and Rui Wang is a remnant of the wei kingdom who is related by blood to Liu Ming

the old man who kidnapped dongfang wushuang maybe he is Rui Wang looking for Ling Ming, ask Feng Wen Xue to deliver him to the grave, because that old man is the same as Rui Wang spreading that there is a treasure of the wei country

So I finished this for 2days mtled accrding to the link given by previous reviewer

From the title one know this will be a dog blood drama, so while reading I've been making some notes (Heck yeah cause I've been full by fluffy/doting stories, I guess am strong enough for more drama)

So here it is From the get go of the story the start was already the Birthing Process of MC, he's a Commander General of ML and yep he went through with it alone though w/ a doctor, (read... more>> for more details) where is the ML?

Spoiler

It was the day of ML engagement, well a marriage with political views, both sides want something, ML found MC is missing went to find him then Tada!!! Shookt MC is preggy

[collapse]

Well both dont know that MC can give birth -it was known that he has a blood of MoYe tribe wherein men can give birth, if ya'all like me lurking for so long here so maybe you read it also on other novels

ya'all see that mpreg tag, How did the MC got preggy?

Spoiler

in the ghost Valley, ML saved MC

then ML got doused of some drug and need to vent it if not his core will be broken, well so who became his partner??of course MC, MC been inlove w/ him for along time and willing to be under him.

ML was already not in the right mind --no preparation whatnot, Mc?? Well it hurts but it was a painful but with pleasure, still hurts with blood and so on: ((

[collapse]

Their 1st night was before the ML engaged. So being preggy was a shock for both of them&MC hid it fr ML (course he shookt, they have diff statuses so what now)

Now the ML know he had a son, 1st he hid their son, saying will not harm him since its the eldest child &have the mark of Beitang Blood (north people. What can MC do? None

What to take note first/Facts

ML is a Prince & One of the 4 Tianmen leader of the North. Normally Cold and dont care about anything. Wants to make everything under his control

Mc?He's just a Gen. Commander, orphaned, then followed ML aftr being a bandit &got revenge for the Bandit Leader who adopted him, Too loyal, and keeps his problems on himself (ML was always worried cause of this throughout the story)

Both are handsome ML 22, MC- 28 years old (1st pregnancy) though they know each other when ML 14, MC 20

Yrs old

Normal people of course will view wrong in issues/relationship like them, since MoYe clan was thought to be extinct for years

Sooo ML been having a relationship with MC (they also have a son sooo) even ML's married

though for sure he didnt love the Girl. The supposed Wife (Lin Yanyan) son also died &ML- Beitang Ao exchange it w/ a diff son (was Clued that this 2nd child has Beitang's family blood but it was not cleared) plus Xtra chaps had given MC&ML eldest son had soooome ambiguous relationship with this 2nd son, so what noww????

Well anyways as readers we See ML Beitang Ao&MC Yan Fei Li to be the Main couple, there will be some Wars (op course both are leader/general). There will be many fights between the two. ML will pursue MC (also gave 3 yr distance to each other) & ML finally believed that he really loves MC, the 1 thing that he can't control in his life and accepts it.

Many steamy scenes and MoYe clan had diff body types to women. Wanna know how many times MC got preggy?

Spoiler

1st time preggy-Eldest child (Beitang Yaori)

2nd time-Miscarriage T.T MC drink med to not give birth anymore but its not effective to moye people. Cant save d child it was during war

Also remember the supposed 2nd of Beitang Family was the boy swapped by ML to Lin Yanyan dead child. It was not cleared what that child (Beitang Hui) past/ life experience is---

3rd time: TWINS!!! 1 boy&1 girl

4th time preggy: 1 Boy

So in Beitang Royal Family the children are:

1st child, 2nd child (sketchy past), 3rd&4th, all Are birthed by MC excpet that 2nd child

His last son will be parented by Him and will get MC last name. Thats good!finally MC had time to see his child growing up process until adult (hopefully)

[collapse]

At the end of the Novel Linyanyan /wife was really driven crazy &known the truth then helped enemy. After the fight it was said she & Beitang Hui fled. But only Beitang Hui (2nd child sketchy past) was retreived after

So I guess she was already considered dead =traitor

Anyways at the end of the novel until MC last child hopefuly sincr its reaaaally hard for him to give birth (40yrsold) ML is happy with MC having children but he doesnt want Yan Fei Li to suffer again. Decided that the last chile will be surnamed Yan and will grow up with MC. ML&MC have already been living Secluded since Beitang Yaori (eledest son) was 7yrs old+. ML just goes back once jn while to check somethings if needed his help

Where are they living?

Spoiler

LingYing Valley/forbidden valley. Where most MoYe clan lives. Was not stated how they found this place

[collapse]

with MC&ML life, I think this where they will live until their old age. ML only person in his heart is MC and MC is the same.

So here's my rate (MY RATE) okay and things I want the Couple should have done. It's just me

Story: there are so many loose ends on some things. Like I said Where is Lin Yanyan? How they came to Lingyan Valley?? What is Beitang Hui past??

=3/5

Characters - ML was originally cold, Aloof but he became mellowed at the end +not afraid of showing his feelings to MC it's just:

They're not honest to each other thats why they fight sometimes minus 1. ML never publicly declared their relationship to the world (though of course some close friends/aids know) minus 1. Though its good ML the 1st to say ILY and MC need to be teased b4 saying ILY

Overall chara:3/5

Translation:4/5, good some minor mistakes

OverAll 3.5/5

Broken Bonds was the 1st part of trilogy and my heart/mind were tired reading this so I'll read the 2/3rd part for next time. Now back to Finding some Fluff Danmeis with good Main Cp combo that will soothe my heart <<less

I feel so bad for Lin yanyan. She did not deserved all that. She married into BTA and she thought she could be happy there only to found that her own husband had baby with someone else. The husband even had her take care of his illegitimate son. She was pregnant when she found out about the illegitimate baby. So her baby born premature. Even her husband doesn't love or care about her, but at least she had her son who gives her hope right. But then again, she lose... more>> her only son from sickness. She went twisted from then on and spent whole day in Buddhist temple. Then the husband swap her dead child with some unknown child. It's hard for her not to be suspicious. She thought ML force her take care of his second illegitimate child. It's hard for her to care for illegitimate child when her own died. ML (her husband) and MC are really selfish cheating couple. <<less

Such a good novel As expected of CG with very good translation ^_^

I liked the story very much it is a little heartbreaking and MC experiences many hard ships but it's the good point of this story not all BL novels should be fluffy and boring. This Story was very interesting for me and always I wanted to know what will happen next.

In this novel the relationship between men was known as something very bad and illegal so that's why MC and ML should not allow anyone to know about... more>> it.

Spoiler

ML is not actually very bad it's just he didn't like the MC at first as a lover but he liked MC as his loyal subordinate MC fell in love one sided.

one time ML fell in to the enemy's trap to save MC and so MC slept with him to eliminate the poison at that time ML didn't Love MC and thus was very embarrassed so he went to another battle he came back after 8 month with a woman as a fiance, MC was very sad and heartbroken which stimulate and thus he gave birth at that time

[collapse]

Spoiler

MC got pregnant 3 times but unfortunately in his second pregnancy he didn't know he was pregnant and thus the infant was aborted in the battle because of fighting he found out he is pregnant when he felt stomachaches while fighting and it was already too late

[collapse]

The story will become much better when ML confess that he is in Loves with MC.

I hate the wife her early delivery was mostly because of herself she stressed herself very much and it was not MC's fault at all but she hates MC. <<less

For those ppl who gave very low rating to this story, they should read tags and description first before starting a story so they can avoid if it's not their cup of tea.

I agree this is not a very good story but still significantly better than some BL stories I've read recently.

Seriously, what those ppl expected from story with tags of /r*pe/ and /victim become lover/

I'm rating 5stars just to make up for very low rating because this story deserves better than overall rating 3.4

I give three stars when I am conflicted.

The story is NOT poorly written, it's even a realistic story with dimensional characters and just for that, it can't be lower than 3. Now, do I like the characters?

I hate the ml, such a slag! I wanted him to be face-slapped so much! The ML lacks logic and is what you call a big version of an entitled little spoiled brat, or the successful version of these genius young master cannon fodder in a cultivation novel that didn't have the misfortune to... more>> meet the protagonist.

The MC is no better but I can somehow understand. Even when you are a successful general with great mental power, if you base your self-worth around one particular thing. No matter how strong, you can still be dragged to such lows.

Regret mtling this S***

For the first time, I wanted a bad ending, because I wanted the ML to suffer the consequences. <<less

Dropped. I just couldn't. I tried I even skipped to later chapters 75+ but the novel is just one big disappointment after another. The plot is rubbish. The characters are tr*sh. Not just the ML who I wish would be castrated but the MC is disappointing, literally letting himself become tr*sh by being treated in that manner.

Lots of tears were spent on the 1st couple of chapters, anger, some more tears and more anger. But it just doesn't improve so for once I would dissuade anyone from reading... more>> this unless you are repenting for terrible sins you commited and chose to torture yourself. <<less

A very classic scum gong ML with all the stereotypes, and very sad sad stvpid easy to kill shou MC (I hate this type, very annoying, I'd want them to think and stand up and just storm all the scum men).

The agony in reading this was memorable. But I refuse to read it again lol

I lost it as soon as he says “amniotic fluid” while he straggles to call for a doctor who also says “amniotic fluid”. In such alarming situation of giving birth it seems unrealistic to mention “... My amniotic fluid is broken... ” instead of “... My water broke...” especially in the olden days.

First of all, this is set in a timeline where "yin and yang harmony" is a strong belief as well as an important part of cultivation. There is no official divorce or out of the closet thing in this world so the protagonists are always at a loss what to do with the woman after the couple make certain of their feelings for each other. (So if you are someone with strong modern/liberated beliefs then you'll have a hard time reading this one)

EXPECT A Dog blood story, the first... more>> half is the MC suffering so much I shed a few tears. Other reviewers described him better but MC is like a shoujo heroine LMAO. Scum ML but later came around after they took time away from each other to figure out their feelings. Thankfully the second half is so much better and they manage to shake off the drama of the first part and became smutty loving. Lots of kids for those who like little buns. #Moye pregnancy

Beitang Family/ Four Heavenly Sect Series (the available translated ones, can read in any order) :

  • Broken bonds - story of the parents
  • My Wangfei is a man - story of the second son
  • Praying for Fate - modern reincarnation of the parents, less toxic story.
Like other reviewers, I also have mixed opinion of this story. So basically this is not for everyone. AGAIN, READ TAGS PEOPLE. If you like angst, has a thing for masochistic stories :)) and just want to read something to cry on then you are fine reading this <<less

disregarding the low reviews. I am giving a 4 star on this one. First of all, I enjoy this kind of genre and I am not a prude. Although there are scenes that makes you want to slap MC, but hey, this is fantasy fiction BL novel. And without those plots and twist you wont appreciate and love the characters. Pls dont drop this. And I am still waiting for translations.. If you need help, I cud help translating although I dnt know where to get the raw... more>> ones lol <<less

So I am at chapter 5 and I already know where this story is going. So I read some reviews and I am not shocked that it's really in my expectation. A shitty ML and an Idiotic MC. I can't believe that because he loves the ML he will forgive him every time. Even though he takes his child he still loves the ML. And I read in a spoiler that he even engaged with another s*x with the ML. And for me, that's idiotic like he already has a... more>> fiancee so you must know some limits but no they still make love, and the worst case is that they seem to forget their child. Tsk Tsk. I never recommend u guys to read this. I f*cking don't know why those reviews have 4 and 5 stars like this novel is such a shitty story. <<less

I was quite confused on how I would rate this because the plot was actually okay and it would stir up your emotions. Each character had their own dynamics and personalities. It's just that I really hate the ML and his decisions in life. I was also quite annoyed with the MC and his masochistic tendencies though I felt sympathetic for him most of the time. There was a part of me that wished for the MC to just not end up with the ML and to have a healthier... more>> and happier relationship. It was just a wishful thinking but I think I would prefer this more. <<less

The angst is delicious. If you are weak-hearted and a fluff person, then better not read. It touched many strong sensitive topics and it will trigger you.

I don't agree with the low rating of this novel cuz it's good in its own way. I enjoyed it.

As a depressed adult who have been in toxic relationship, I can relate to this story.

My heart hurts for the MC and the ML just makes me angry most of the time, he’s an a**hole!
But I still want to read all the other stories that are connected in some ways to this.
I don’t regret reading this but I might not reread!

I want to give 5stars don't know why ended up 3stars...

I really like the story despite the ML is such a scumbag

I mean, this kind of ML kind of realistic. He put his position at first. How many man are real nice, not many nice man in the world actually. Man in nature is egoist.

... more>> But I know this story is not for everyone. Just read the tags, if you didn't like it just don't read then

As fellow translators, sometimes giving bad reviews and rating could make the translators lost interest in translating.. I do know some translators were like that. <<less
