Dylan returns to his family’s home after leaving the house three years ago in an attempt to quell his romantic infatuation with his older brother’s wife.

When he comes back home, he finds his throbbing heart longing for her deeply once more.

Through his bitter struggle, he hears rumors of his older brother’s close relationship with the housemaid Anna, which enrages him into vowing to do everything in his power to kick the housemaid out of the household for his sister-in-law’s sake, thus beginning the constant harassment toward Anna.

Then, Anna finds out his reasoning for approaching her in the first place…

I was shocked, because the story was pretty good and surprisingly it didn't take an abusive turn either. Regarding Anna being a maid, her clumsiness was really to set up the story, as every story has a cliche. In the beginning they followed the cliche of her being a horrible maid and all the maids hating her, however past chapter 6 she does her job well and is rather competent. The reasons why she had been lacking at her job in the beginning was mostly due to the older brother/... more>> the first young master, taking her time. And honestly it would've been more annoying if she had rejected him instead saying " oh no I'm just a lowly maid", thus let's not talk about books because really that's all they did. Also she was never exempt from her job, when she wasn't with him she would still be working. If you had read on it gives more details around the many jobs she had to do, as long with the others. Also she doesn't have a complete hate relationship with the other maids nor were the other maids unreasonably harsh. It's just inevitable that they would talk about her being close with the master because regardless if their just talking about books, this did take some time away from work. Once again this was more apparent in later chapters. Also I'm not saying she completely stopped making mistakes but it wasn't as cliche as the beginning. No worker is perfect and the story goes deeper into this. For example, the head cook had sent out raw meat, simple mistake he was criticized and they had just sent out new food. The second instant was when Samantha told the FL to buy ingredients and she had confused I believe Parsley and Basil. The FL was the one who had gotten in trouble but didn't fight to clear the misunderstanding as one it wasn't too serious no one had really gotten punished and two she knew that everyone makes mistakes and that it's easy for Samantha to become confused. Both situations were short and not over melodramatic. With the main couple, I won't say too much as then it would really become a spoiler but I'm glad that their relationship didn't become abusive and even if the second brother/ml/ Dylan was stubborn with love he's rather a decent person and never expected the FL to follow his shenanigans. I expect their romance to develop a lot more from here on out, it's a good read. P.S. Did I mention how he's not abusive? BTW not abusive? <<less

Annoying as hell, the FL is not made for being a maid. She takes advantage of her master's favor and doesn't think ahead. She can't do her job ffs. She doesn't even try to correct her mistake. As of now, all she thinks is about her master's younger brother, instead of trying to do her job properly. 2 star for the amazing effort of translating.

I really like the story. I like the fact that the FL takes often the lead and seduces ML. FL isn't a pushover, she's not the cliché sub maid that keeps crying annoyingly. ML is a bit childish sometimes but that's what makes him cute and we can tell he's a good guy. There's some misunderstandings and they don't really talk. The snu snu scenes are a bit short but it's expected since the chapters are short

But what really bothers me is that there's no descriptions of the characters. We... more>> know Anna's hair is black but that's all. I don't know how Dylan looks, their eye colors, or anything except that both of them are attractive. It's very frustrating, I need to know this to imagine them.

Furthermore, we don't know in which era the story takes place. Is it another world ? Is it the 21th century or is it in middle ages ? I really have no clue. They don't mention any noble status but they say the kilner family is prestigious, so I'm assuming that maybe the story is modern but at the same time there is no mention of technology or anything. I'm really lost. <<less

Extremely well translated. Big kudos to the translator.

The story reminds me of those old Harlequin Romance novels, where the characters aren't portrayed too deep.

My main complaint was the feeling of Out-Of-Character feeling, and the unrealistic portrayal of the character's status in life. For example, the FL is a maid, with a super poor background and horrid parents. Both FL & ML fall relatively fast for each other. A maid and the second young master of a wealthy family. No matter how you look at it, it doesn't seem that romantic.... more>> More like a fling, especially with all the random smut going on and him not owning up to his emotions for her either to her or to anyone else.

In addition, the feeling of the MC being just a bit pansy dandy is prevalent. He passes out from a drunkard hard slapping him. Sure him saving the FL from being hit is one thing, but why not block the hit with his arm or what not instead putting his own face in the way? Also, it's all idealistic to want to leave the family and be with the maid, but um... how are they going to survive? Is the FL going to have to work for them to survive? As far as I remember, I don't think the ML as the 2nd son has any money making skills or job of his own.

Overall, the romance feels a bit off because of the class distinctions and how the both leads react in real life. <<less

A short sweet story, since its so short any and all misunderstandings resolve quickly, so you won't get annoyed by things being dragged on for too long.

This is the kind of maid x young master story that needs to be more prevalent. No abuse, no r*pe, no blackmail or coercion.

I enjoyed it. At the beginning of the story FL was too clumsy so I was really irritated by her but slowly it gets better. Plot is not that deep but for short smut novel it has right amount of plot.

It is immensely cute. I like that the character's have personalities and genuine stories. I like how the main characters grow.

One issue I have is the world building. Wasn't necessary per se but I didnt even know the name of the country they're in. We have no clue what 'time period' they're in

I didn’t read the summary all the way through so I was disappointed when I realized Carol isn’t the female lead.

Anna (the actual female lead) is incredibly annoying and unlikeable as a character. I’m sure there are reasons behind this and she’ll get some character development but I’m still going to drop this because I don’t have the patience for that.

Wonderful novel I was instantly hooked. I usually dislike novels with misunderstandings as a main point but this one made it work and made me want to scream “just talk already!” At them. The only downside is that from ch 6 and above its blocked and im broke so yeah.
