It's a sweet romantic short novel with a lot of funny moments derived from the mistaken identity. The comedy is what I loved the most in this novel. The story is narrated in a light-hearted way and should not be taken seriously... similar to silly sitcom plots, or unrealistic shakespearian comedies with mistaken identities or french theater classics (Molière anyone?). Bottom line, this is a fun read with fluffy romance, great characters, and just a little drama in the middle when the truth is revealed.

From the first chapter, you can tell the MC, Xiao Shi Zi, is really dumb, while his love interest, Yun Tian Yang is clearly a chauvinist and thus shouldn’t be with women (also not too bright). YTY throws various hurdles at XSZ in order to chase him away since he doesn’t want to marry the spoilt, rich heiress type. Of course as a servant and man, XSZ can handle most of it, hence causing YTY to fall for him. Toss in some sweet moments and angst, and its a decent... more>> enough yaoi written in the style of Harlequin Romance novels. MC could’ve just as easily been female.

Overall it’s a cute and sweet story, though not without its flaws. As long as you don’t expect too much and you’re willing to lower your intelligence to match the characters’, it’s a pretty enjoyable read. Do need to tolerate some dubcon, some cliches, and the author’s distaste for women, but that’s normal for yaoi. The greatest strength is that the story is short enough to prevent its faults from being over-exposed. <<less

Only 10 chapters. No wonder it progressed so fast. I guess I'm reading too much xianxia...

Anyway, surprisingly sweet novel. Since it's so short you can give it a try, even if you don't have a lot of expectations going in, I can tell you I didn't either.

That said, I really don't see how that cover is supposed to look like a woman so it kind of breaks immersion and makes it hard to imagine someone ever mistaking him for her...

Uh...I don't really understand why this got a big score. *shrugs* If I were to describe this novel, it would be a typical Harlequin pocketbook with a Chinese setting and the protagonist has male genitalia instead of a female's (not much difference between the MC's personality and a stereotypical feminine protagonist). >.>

The only unsatisfying thing is the length of the chapters!! Overall, this story was really good! Both characters were really sweet and the storyline was pretty normal.

Could have been a five, but the story didn't elaborate enough. Novel should have been longer. But other than that, their are some plot points that I am not a fan of as well. But it wasn't to the point that it made the story bad cause the S repented in a very acceptable way. So 4

This is quite a cute and fluffy novel, a really nice relaxing read.

But, the MC has a bit too low IQ and self-esteem for me. I really don't understand how the MC is like YouXiaoMo from The Legendary Master's Wife because the only thing they really have in common personality wise is how naïve they both are. The ML is quite forceful and it does go overboard at times, the ML also is quite judgemental and that bothers me. Also, the cover isn't.... very suitable. It's ugly....

However, it is a... more>> cute read, the translation is not bad, and it's written quite well. It's completed, which is a definite plus. <<less

Great translation.

Story wise is just so so. Another ordinary romance story albeit between male. Due to it is just 10 chapters, don't expect much character built up for MC and ML.

Very funny, very nicely done story!

Gonna re-read again if I stumble this again for sure!

I can say, the MC is the seme kinda, the uke pov is alot but felt the ML pov is much stronger as MC here.

PS. Only me, or the man on the cover there looks like KimuTaku?

Yes, the story did progress really fast, but all in all it's fluffy and cute. Not that really smutty (for me) but it's there.

I just really wished it was longer.

A short story full of fluff! Although the plot wasn't anything complex, I really enjoyed reading it. These typical plot premises never get old. I like these kinds of light and happy novels as compared to those with heavy drama.

Very short and sweet. It's nice once in a while to read a story like this start to finish without waiting for the chapters. The translation was also pretty good.

If you're looking for something light to read this story is good despite it being short. It's sweet, funny and... (☆ω☆).

The MC personality is similar to 'LMW' XiaoMo's. \ (> v <) /

I should only rate 4 because the story is a bit bland but I bumped it up to 5 for being completed. The story is just a simple "bride substitution" so don't expect anything much. It's a good story to read if you want something with BL but not too angsty.

A short, but sweet light read ^^ only 10 chapters, but at least they were quite long
4/5 stars (it's good, but nowhere near as good as The Legendary Master's Wife), but gave it an extra since I don't think it deserves such a low score average
