AAHH!! This novel is good!! the best!!

I know this novel is in the genre of incest, even though it was openly stated many times by the MC. Not everyone likes incest, but for those who do, really, this novel is great!

The story is very touching. this is the first time I read a novel with a love that is really deep and looks realistic. MC and ML are not OP, they fight and rely on each other. they know that they cannot live without each other.

MC is a reckless bad... more>> boy. his mother said he was mentally ill, but it was all because of their family upbringing that made MC sick. ML himself is also sick, he tends to have violent behavior (SM) but only on MC. ML also looks strong on the outside, but MC knows he is weak on the inside, he is very tired of this life and only wants money for MC.

Aah... this novel is really good. well, even though nsfw is a bit annoying and clumsy, but the story goes deep! read!! <<less

I'm not usually a fan of incest danmei, but this novel is an exception.

You Sa has masterfully written these two characters and their pure, undying need for each other. They cannot live without each other; they are connected, right down to the blood. It's a crazy love mixed with desperation, devotion, thrill and struggle. It's sick, but in the most beautiful way. The best kind of p*rn-with-plot.

Firstly, Duan Yan makes for a very complex and interesting MC. In his world, aside from his Ge, everyone else is irrelevant. He appears... more>> to be a brat, but later as his childhood is revealed, it becomes clearer why he is the way he is, and why he is so attached to his Ge. As he said, "when other people break up, they can still find someone new, but when I break up, I become an orphan." Duan Yan is actually very endearing, especially in the little things he does for his Ge. He's just so precious T_T my heart hurts every time I think about everything he has had to endure... *sigh* he deserved so much better. That's not to say he isn't a little crazy though... ahem

Next, Duan Rui, the ML or Duan Yan's older brother. On the outside, Duan Rui appears to be someone very successful. He's strong and reliable, a true CEO. But deep down inside, he's scared. He's scared that he's not good enough to Duan Yan, he's scared that Duan Yan, being a kid, will eventually leave him and move on. He worked nonstop not for himself but for Duan Yan, to be able to give Duan Yan more.


He promised that once he (DR) turned eighteen he would come and take Duan Yan so they could run away together. But on Duan Rui's eighteenth birthday, he didn't go find Duan Yan. Duan Yan thought he had been abandoned, but the truth was that Duan Rui had gotten an apartment for them already, it was just that the apartment was too small and shabby and he thought it wasn't good enough for Duan Yan.


Duan Rui really cares very deeply for Duan Yan, so much so that he can't leave him behind.

The two of them are basically made for each other. They'd risk their lives for each other. It's unconditional love, truly. I don't know how to explain the beauty of their relationship, but believe me when I say this novel is 100% worth reading. When I first started reading it the writing did put me off slightly because of how... straightforward it was, but it turned out to be an excellent choice because of how raw this story is. Nothing is sugarcoated. There are so many hard-hitting lines in this novel that make the story incredibly emotional. You Sa's writing is perfect, through and through.

I highly recommend this novel. Read it to the end and you'll see how beautiful and touching this story is, even if you're not that into the incest genre. It's not one of the most popular ortho BLs in China for nothing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :) <<less

Just to rebut Hitchhiker’s review: that person obviously did not read or understand that the MC paid for a male prostitute and it was all an act. There was no r*pe or scaring someone into s*x. The “scared” person who had s*x in the bathroom was a prostitute pretending to be a virgin who was forced, etc. The MC was the one being taken advantage of by a professional... does any normal person cleanse their bowels out with an enema EVERY TIME THEY GO TO WORK because they “just know”... more>> that “someday” someone will r*pe them and it’s best to have a cleansed out bowel! 😳🙄 <<less

The MC is a POS, complete and absolute tr*sh. Apparently he is in love with his brother but his behavior indicates anything but that. When his brother is struggling with pain because of a stomach ache, possibly from working hard and not eating enough when bringing him up, what does the MC do? Run around trying to ease his pain, buy him medicine, make him comfortable? No, just feed him some hot water and fantasize about violently abusing him.

The way he treats Shi Chen in Ch 6 show just how... more>> much of a POS he is.


First he scared Shi Chen into having s*x with him in the bathroom stall of a restaurant in return for taking the blame for spilling wine on his brother's coat. In what world is it OK to demand sexual favors for dirtying someone's clothes? Then he finds out Shi Chen is a student in his school and proceeds to r*pe him in the school's bathroom stall.


All I could think of when I got there was, "Hope your brother realizes what a POS you are and kicks you out and you whine away the rest of your life never finding happiness". Unfortunately, I'm sure that's not how this is going to go. What pisses me off is the way the writer has written this as though the pitiful one in this situation is somehow the rapist and not the victim. This writer will find a way to make Shi Chen the villain and the MC out to be a tragic hero. Can't stand such writers. Not only do they have no imagination but their morality is messed up if they think poor part-timers exist for rich patrons to kick around and abuse, and see nothing wrong with it. Both the novel and the MC are just pure tr*sh.

I saw a rebuttal saying, "oh, but he is a prostitute and the MC paid". No, the novel did not say he paid but clearly says he intimidated by inflating the price of the coat. Also, irrespective of what part of his body he washed, that doesn't excuse treating service workers like sh*t nor does it excuse raping someone in school based on what he does during his part-time job. If the MC wants to f*ck, he should go to the appropriate business, pay the right price and then do it with someone whose job description is to f*ck him. Even if you r*pe a prostitute, it's r*pe. The MC is tr*sh. <<less

MC and ML are violent; they made love and punched each other. Definitely not a novel for everyone. They are both jaded; childhood filled with abuse and neglect messed them up and they depended on each other heavily.

What I particularly like about this novel is that they're both degenerates. They've both fallen real deep and they accept it and acknowledge it. If this had been a story of a one-sided obsessive love I don't think this novel would have as good reviews as it does now. The tags are pretty hardcore but for what it is, it works for this novel and it's themes.

I saw a reviewer talking about the MC being a piece of shit. I mean they're not entirely wrong but you have to remember... more>> that from the beginning chapters you can infer that the MC has been through violent child abuse by his father. Whereas the ML got lucky going with the mother and only having to face pressure to marry. The MC is also only still in highschool. His behaviours and mentality is not going to be normal after experiencing all that trauma. (Btw I am in no way defending his actions but I do want to give abit of insight on what contributed to his twisted views).

In my opinion I think the author did a great job writing the characters of the brothers. You can see how twisted they're both are, more so the MC because of his upbringing and the ML's indulgence that leads to the MC continuing the stuff he does. There's also a lot of lines and phrases within the novel that shows the MC's awareness of himself, one being;


'At night, as long as my Ge had left me for a moment I would start having nightmares. I lost my mind when I couldn't smell him. It had been a long time since I was last separated from him; I couldn't leave him. Perhaps I had been sick from the start'


There was also the comment about Shi Chen, he's definitely pitiful. But in my opinion the author doesn't heavily portray him as a victim being because he knows the underlying implications of his job. It's literally hinted in chapter 1;


'He hummed and hawed as he explained that he had never been f*cked before, but it would happen sooner or later so every night before he went to work he would douche his rectum.'


He's aware what he may face in his line of job. There's even more references that hint his situation is in a pitiful state and he does have to use sexual favours to survive, regardless on whether it was to be MC or not. I don't think his character was needed to be further expanded when the stories focus is the twisted morales of the brothers and their relationship.

This definitely won't be your cup of tea if you can't read between lines or simply hate it because of the tags. But if you prefer a darker novel I recommend. <<less

This novel is not for EVERYONE. Read the tags before reading. If you can't handle those tags, don't leave bad reviews. The 2 protagonists were equally sick and yandere. There were plots and the smut was hot and detailed. The author also described the reason why they became like the way they were.

It was interesting read and got me hook.

This is story is unique and I don't know how to to describe it... maybe because MC is abnormal and getting abandoned. The only one that cares for him is his brother. The vibes I got from reading is lonely and emptiness.

None of them is normal and that make them feel real to me.

S*x in this novel is hot, interesting and very detailed.


Using condom to fingerings and popper to relax before entering


I got uno reverse card a few time in the story.
