A good story. The male started as a dumb person but after having his eyes opened harshly by the surroundings, he wised up a lot. He became as manipulative as he can be. Even managing to snag the incredibly cruel and dominant man from his ex girlfriend. I enjoy the web drama (I wish the drama got more sponsorship but yeah.. Money tight wise or not, I love the actors) and I enjoy more the novel. There were a lot of chapters translated in wattpad by AnneNoh. I think until... more>> chapter 69 two or three days ago. <<less

Um, this is a bit different from what I expected. The MC has some incredibly silly attitudes, like smashing his head with a brick so that his girlfriend doesn't break up with him (he did this THREE times!), and honestly, I totaly understand why she broke up with him, he's an unmotivated loser with a screw loose. By chapter 17, though, he's finally snapped out of it, so now I'm waiting for further developments. I'm not sure if his future love interest's appeared already, as there is someone he gets... more>> along with splendidly right now, but I don't think he's his love rival so maybe he'll just end up one sidedy crushing on the mc?

Oh, and chapters 13-16 seem like they're out of place: different names, different circumstances, different plot (?) and a completely different tone. Did the translator accidentally translate the wrong thing or are they supposed to show the love interest's side of the story? I don't know

Anyway, if you can tolerate a wtf protagonist who happens to be a major loser at the beginning, go ahead and read this <<less

like a lot of other people I read this after seeing the webseries because cute as it was there was just so much that was missing/ didn't make sense to me. There is a lot of humor in the series, mostly from the MC, and a scary as hell ML who is both prone to violence and a complete S in bed and out of it.

... more>>

the hot wax on the MC's nipples still make mine hurt in sympathy every time I think about it. There's a lot of rough s*x and the ML's idea of "play" is very much a dominance and submission kind of thing


it's worth the read, if you can handle the stuff I mentioned above. This is not a light bit of Bl fluff that will leave you giddy at the end of every chapter, and like all CJD novels there's some angst involved.

on the plus side you get to watch a fat, color-blind idiot go from loser to Boss throughout the course of the story with a lot of humor along the way and there is even a little character growth for the ML as well. <<less

... more>>

There are some very violent s*x scenes. The MC is in a lot of pain and humiliated. As far as I read, he didn't think about revenge.

I wish there was a tag for this. After reading about hundred chapters I have to drop it because of this. That's really frustrating. I will have to re-read FOD to clean up my mind.


I know he will counter attack in the end = he will top the ML, but I'm afraid there will be more cruel s*x scenes before I get to it.


Otherwise, if such a relationship doesn't bother you, the story is funny and the counter attack is enjoyable. <<less

From the other reviews, I was led to believe that the smut scenes would be very degrading and cruel. Instead, I think that although they were a little on the more adventurous side (rough and involving some bondage), the real problem lies with their relationship itself.

For me, reading up till this far feels like a rollercoaster, but not at all in a good way. The story starts out great - MC is a naive, simple-minded guy with little motivation for improving his life, but after an unforeseen breakup with his... more>> gf, starts to think more about his life and what he wants to do. At this point, if the author actually writes some real character growth, this story would probably be less of a disaster than it is. The huge problem is that MC, instead of maturing (even if by a little), seems to fall down the same path of foolishness, stubbornness and lack of communication with ML every single time! Another reviewer mentioned that MC goes from loser to Boss, but there is very little show of that. MC reads as rather lazy, lacking interest in his business and seems little more than a glorified sugar baby.

ML isn't perfect either and comes with a ton of baggage, but compared to MC, ML is a real gem. ML definitely tries very hard to love MC, even if he doesn't truly understand what love is yet. He does make certain choices that hurt MC because he's used to hurting and being hurt, but the bulk of his decisions shows care and patience for the one he loves.

All in all, I'm rather disappointed with the novel, especially since the author seems to be rather well-known for writing good angst. After 197 chapters, all I feel is tired and only wonder if love like this can really be called love at all. <<less

Counterattack starts off as a goofy cartoon sequence where WuSuoWei tries his best to save his 7yr relationship with his gf. He is very naive and innocent and his actions with the bricks just shows how much of an innocent he is. I know ppl don't get this type of humour but it is quite common to CJD's novels... remember GuHai roasting his rival alive on a firepit right in BLY room!lol... it's just imagery, metaphors... seems like CJD loves wacky imagery...

Chi, on the other hand, is a cruel, bisexual... more>> playboy and a hardcore sexual sadist. I say "hardcore" although in my opinion, he never does anything extremely harmful to Wei... not the way he treated his previous lovers before. Chi actually treats his "golden butt" with utmost care since it's so unique lol. (I think a better example of a hardcore sad*st would be Jing from HHLY)

The joy of this book is in knowing that both MCs will change when they fall for each other. Wei changes from naive idiot to become a manipulative idiot who falls into his own trap lol. Chi tries to be a more gentle and supportive lover. But more than that, they both help each other at critical moments in their lives.

I liked this book as much as "Addicted", "Advance Bravely" and "Feng Mang". It is full of funny dialogue, great sex, sweet romance and lovely snakes lol. <<less

The reason I started reading this novel was because of how different and unique the web series was. However, throughout the show I realized that there was so much potential but there were certain limitation from producers etc, so when I realized that it was an adaptation from a Chinese novel I was fully interested and wanted this novel to fill my expectations. AND IT DID... and then some. this novel is very funny and well thought out with the plot (shout out to my fav author). what I didnt... more>> expect were aspects that weren't implemented in the show. these created deep characters and is really good in showing their thoughts and thought processes. I continued reading this novel on wattpad because they have more chapters translated. one of my fav Chinese novels I've read so far. <<less

From the comments, the novel turns out kind of sadistic for the MC. But I gave 5 stars just for the first 6 chapters. I feel symptahy for the ex-girlfriend and her attemps to break up while trying to stop the MC from finding....


....a brick.
