“What are you thinking about?”

“I’m thinking about a guy.”

KyungHyun stopped in the middle of a deep kiss and sighed. His lips began to form a smile, but his fierce glare said otherwise. Possessiveness and jealousy spread across his sculpted face.

“Will you tell me his name?”

His easygoing and languid voice reached her ears.


“So that I can shoot him down.”

It is everything that you would expect of a mobster book, but nothing of what you would expect of the plot.

So hot, so toxic, yet so on point for what it seems the other wanted to bring out of these characters. I could not have pictured any other way how everything would go down for the two of them.

Well... this story really brings out your inner hoe.

Like, gosh golly, I've read my fair share of smut but Korean novels really take the cake.

The ML is like a beast on steroid aphrodisiac with the MC; nonstop, hard, and everlasting.

It really makes me wonder how the FL could stand after all those intense s*x descriptions.

Anways, read it. Both the s*x and plot (with the truth of Eunha's parents being cliche) is really yummy.

Enjoi and Adieu.

Summary: Lee EunHa was raised in the criminal organization of Serim from a young age. She's been waiting patiently for the opportunity to kill the leader of the rival organization, the man responsible for her parents' deaths. The opportunity comes in the form of her latest mission. She is ordered to kill Shin KyungHyun, the right-hand man of her parents' mu*derer. However, there is more to KyungHyun than meets the eye. As she begins to unravel the mystery behind the man by using her captivating charms, EunHa finds herself being... more>> the one seduced instead.

Warning: Dark themes and violence. Graphic descriptions of mental and physical abuse.

Review: Wow. To be honest, the female lead drew me in from the start. There aren't a lot of Asian novels where the female lead isn't a virg*n at the beginning of the novel. Additionally, in most smut novels, the female lead still acts virg*nal even after spending crazy nights with the male lead (s). Our female lead here is no virg*n, and she's definitely not virg*nal. She speaks her mind and isn't afraid to do so. She knows she's pretty and bewitching and uses it to her advantage every chance she gets. She's also got the gift of the gab that can get her out of almost any sticky situation. She's hot-headed, which ends up getting her into dangerous situations, but she can hold her own. As for our male lead, he's your typical alpha-male protector kinda guy. He's desperately trying to keep our FL safe, but she's just bouncing around all over the place, poor guy. They drive each other insane, and there's never a dull moment between these two. Their chemistry is so palpable throughout the novel, and I just couldn't put it down! Loved this book, and I'm probably going to look into some of the author's other works from here on out! <<less

Hot as F----!!! The SMUT at c3 part 3 has got to be among the best if not the hottest smut/Hscenes I've ever read. I'm literally having eyegasms at this point and from what I can see there is still going to be a lot more snu snu to come... kudos to the translator-nim AnonAnemone - she has really good taste :)

Wow... This turned out to be the very opposite of what I initially expected, and it sure was not a disappointment. It was intense, it was violent, it was full of ups and downs, it was disturbing and sweet at the same time, and it got so suffocating at some point that I had a hard time keeping up with all the sensuality. It managed to deliver quite a bit of emotion despite its relatively short length. The main characters are different from what I'm used to reading. So while... more>> I was a bit reluctant in the beginning, I eventually realized I don't really hate it. I usually like pure romances with lots of fluff, and that's why the MC's boldness was very hard for me to get used to. The overly sexualized nature of their interaction was also a turn-off. Nevertheless, it had some hidden gems that I've been longing for so long, so I ended up ignoring most of my displeasure.

I am usually OK with smut, the only time I hate it is when it gets too much and dominates the actual story. And this one had quite a bit, but what surprised me was that it didn't get too ahead of the plot. We could actually get to understand the characters. I really like how straightforward they are. They don't hesitate to express their feelings openly, they are honest about their desires, and they don't hold themselves back when it comes to getting what they want.

The ML is so arrogant and cold, yet he is very sincere with his affection. He is passionate and possessive, and I do like possessive MLs. He is very strong and competent, literally a heartthrob from head to toe. The MC is bold and intelligent; she doesn't hesitate to get to action to obtain what she desires. She deals with everything forthright, and she isn't blinded by love. The one who is really crazy and head-over-heels as far as his love is concerned is the ML, and witnessing his protectiveness and affection was a whole new experience. The real hidden gem was their interaction, and I fell in love with how they bared their hearts without reservation. We could get actual insight into their thoughts and feelings, their reasoning, and the ordeals they go through. The plot wasn't only full of endless action and sensual scenes. The characters actually conversed with each other, and this is exactly what I was yearning for.

What I really disliked was the s*x addiction of the ML, and how he thought of nothing but s*x whenever he came into contact with the MC. He first got attracted to the MC because of her s*x appeal, and while he told her he was in love with everything about her, her appearance and personality, it's actually a bit unconvincing when he gets aroused every time he sees her. Their intimate actions were very sensual and intense, but I would like to see more to it other than their s*xual intimacy. Like, a conversation where they don't end up in bed? A kiss where they simply share their heartfelt feelings, some fluffy cuddling without getting aroused instantly? We had none of that, and it was a disappointment for me. I know there is more to it. I know the ML really treasured the MC. He wanted to have a real relationship with her. I especially liked this one scene:


["Tonight is our first night together, so I can't do that."
Unable to understand his choice of words, EunHa frowned in her aroused state. They'd already slept together twice, so what did he mean by 'first night'? No, more importantly, they didn't have the type of relationship where they had a 'first night'.

"This is the first time we're having s*x after we've bared everything to each other and have nothing left to hide."]

He valued the sincerity of their actions. She was special to her, different than the other women he'd slept with. However, the way he showed his affection was too sexual.


This is one of the few novels where the MC has a more tragic past than the ML. The majority of the suffering the ML had to face was because of his emotional density and his tendency to satisfy his soul with extremes. He didn't have ambition, something he wanted to accomplish for himself. Aside from that, he had a fairly smooth life. He may not have had a very loving family, but he didn't suffer abuse or too much trouble either. Although he had to face several dangers on his assignment, it was all his choosing. However, the MC was different. She was a weak, timid teenager when she had to face the cruelties of life. She went through things she would have never imagined, and from then on, she only kept on struggling to survive and get revenge for her family. She didn't even imagine a life for herself. She could have tried to run away from all this burden, but she chose to fight for her revenge. She was not held back by her traumas; she set her reservations away and chose to get stronger. Among all that, she didn't lose her sense of self.


[He recalled the way she had screamed at him. She was right. He should have kept his mouth shut back then.]

[Instead of telling her that he understood her pain so thoughtlessly, he should have just brought Kang SungHo to her alive and given her the knife.]

["Don't cry, EunHa."
EunHa whispered softly as she tried to console herself. KyungHyun felt that putting a gun to his own head would have been better than this. He was now being given a glimpse of the unknown history she had tried to keep hidden away. His whole body was shaking in pain. The thing that drove him insane was the fact that even after having gone through all this, she was still able to joke around and laugh.]

Such a powerful scene... I like how the ML recognizes her struggles and suffering. I like how he gets to see her most vulnerable moments and learns to respect her decisions more.


The plotline was very strong and had kept me going despite all the violence.


While I could guess most of the plot twists, the true identity of the ML was really such a huge surprise for me. It gave me a whole new perspective of him as a character. As I started to understand more of his personality, I also fell in love with his strength.


I wish this novel were longer so that we could see more of their love. Normally, I dislike revenge novels, because it really takes too much energy to endure all the built-up drama. I also prefer innocent, devoted MCs and doting MLs who have a strong sense of self-control of their primitive desires. This one was indeed an exception as I enjoyed it very much even though it's the exact opposite of my usual preferences, and that's probably because of the characters' expressiveness. There are few misunderstandings, and they choose to listen to each other when they have suspicions instead of bottling everything up till they explode. This, I'm really grateful for. I'm glad to have read it, despite my skepticisms. <<less

i don't plan on saying this at first but I'm just gonna say it. the smut in this novel is SUPERIOR. and when I say superior, I mean it. I can usually read smut with a straight face but reading this novel's smut really made me feel embarrassed and bothered LMAOOOOO that's how hot they wrote the smut!

i usually prefer korean novels over chi/jp but that has changed for these past few years to the point I didn't realized that this gem exists! now I'm gonna search for more... more>> latest korean novels :p

the plot of doppio senso is not new or unique, but the way it is delivered raised the value of this novel. I'm very satisfied by the portrayal of the FL and ML (especially FL)

FL has a dark past that involves ML and so on so on, the usual tragic past trope but I'm not complaining, I enjoyed it. there's a slight plot twist about ML's identity, but I think most of us figured it out before the reveal lol but still, the plot is decent and the progress is not too fast and not too slow.

i especially LOVE that the FL is not afraid to convey her s*xual desires and be confident about it. although there's one part that made me slightly uncomfortable.


when she had to suck her parents' killer d-ck..... without knowing that he killed them. like GOODBYE omg it was disgusting enough that he had her s**ked his d-ck like that but after the revelation it just changed into another different level of disgusting I really sometimes feel like vomiting whenever I recalled that scene lmao


so prepare your stomach first ladies and gentlemen.

i know all these people who is a die-hard fan of ML are a bunch of masochists.... cause I am too :3

5/5 for novel, SOLID 10/5 for translator (honestly I'm just a fan of the translator at this point even if they translate complete sh-t i'd read it like the bible) <<less

    1. Smut: 4.5
    1. Plot: 4
    1. Overall: 4.5
The plot and smut itself is captivating. A very short character summary: Strong ML with stamina like a stallion and a badass MC with sad past. The title is also interesting; it is what makes me check out the story in the first place due to its unique name.

I admit the late chapters of the story kind of reminds me of mission impossible with action packed plot twist and so on. The ML is very possessive of MC (ofc) and knew the MC since they were young. I think he fell in love with her in the earlier chapters and the MC only reciprocated his love in the late chapters. ML is also kind of yandereish as he has thoughts of handcuffing and binding the MC (basically stripping her of her rights to freedom) to him if it means protecting and having her all to himself. I don't mind though but for people who cannot handle clingy, possessive and over-protective people; this may not be the one for you. For the smut, I did have a blast reading it. The most interesting part is that the over-confident MC thinks she can make the ML go weak on his knees but it turns out the other way round:')

I literally read this story for the smut and romance so other thing besides that is just a minor aspect. I feel like they could have write more chapters because the story is very good. Other than that, this story is definitely for you if you are searching for short-chapters stories filled with romance and action.

Pretty good for a smut novel. The relationship surprised me.

I thought it was going to be more mutual manipulation, but the ML was surprisingly the romantic/emotional one. Meanwhile, MC was the cold/calculating one out for revenge. Nice role reversal.

MC really held her own (strong, stubborn, didn't just wait around for ML to rescue her, didn't just wait around for ML to solve her problems). Author gave her chances to shine (she also rescued the ML at times). She definitely had her own ideas and never shied away from carrying through.... more>> Admirable.

Despite it being only around 14 chapters, every chapter is very long and had lots of action and detail, so there's plenty that happens.

Fantastic translation! I can't give enough kudos to the translator. <<less

A solid 6/5 for the translator - I love your translations so much. If someone replaced the names and told me it was an English novel by Vi Keeland or smth I would believe them. Ms/r translator, you're amazing.

This story is my favorite type of josei romance, where the FMC has brains and looks and knows how to use them. Thank you for bringing such an interesting novel here, I'm looking forward to how it ends!!

That was the best smut I've ever read I think! It was on another level!

However... The romance was quite dry because spoiler spoiler the FL took WAY too long to fall in love. The love between them didn't feel sincere. There is an after torture s*x chapter which was super ridiculous. "biting the inside of the cheek" sentence was repeated so many times in the last arc... It threw me off.

The translator was a king tho. A whole star goes to them. The other star goes to early s*x scenes.

Just one sentence-

Came for smut but plot just hooked me up!

Honestly I wanted to read some R-18 stuff, then the thrill and angst messed with my mind and this way, this novel became one of my most favorite of all time.

... more>> To tell the truth, I don't like angst, tragedy, adventure, mystery, thrill genres very much. I've enough of that in my real life. But this is one of the novels that just took me for a roller-coaster ride I didn't sign up for and I'm not even complaining!

Our FL (Lee EunHa) is a strong woman, and when I say she's strong- it means she's mentally and physically super strong (though it was messed up a bit in the middle *within reasons*). She is a badass and knows what she wants. The issues regarding her past seems fairly realistic. Author didn't make the past events dramatic just to justify her actions. All her decisions and actions makes so much sense.

Our ML (Shin KyunHyun) is possessive (like lion guarding its territory type) and downright cruel. He even comes off as a pshyco sometimes. But even with all this bad points, he loves FL and considers her safety and happiness the most. The reason for his terrible personality seems fairly reasonable to me, at least.

The smut is good too (one of the best I've read). It just makes your toe curl up! You must've seen in many ML's description in novels the use of the adjective- "sex-beast". Honestly I couldn't really decipher that. But now I know, this ML is the living (.. Uh.. Written..?) example of this. The ML and FL had s*x so many times, you'll lose count. The s*x scenes never becomes boring. Despite that it doesn't take away the charisma of the plot at all. There is an amazing balance between the s*x scenes and plot.

This is a mature story. There are many bloody, violent, explicit scenes. There are also many sensitive topics mentioned. So you have to open your mind enough before starting on this novel.


If you're a bit conservative and looking for something sweet and fluffy, then it's not for you!

If you're not at the least 15- 16 yet, then I don't recommend to read it, kid! Sister here is warning you for your own good.

If you're in for a cruel obsessive, possessive ML and a crazy but strong FL, them you're in the right place.

If you want to read angst, mystery and mature story with twists and turns and a slight bit of a kinky f*ckery where ML and FL love each other more than themselves but still devoted to fulfill their goals, this is just your thing!

There is also a manhwa version of this novel. If you want then you can check it out. Just search on google and you'll have it. But I still prefer the novel version.

And remember, this is not a clique, you need to be patient for finishing it. But once you do, trust me you won't regret it! ^_^ <<less

I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!!!!! The characters are both strong and fierce and they will do anything to achieve their goals.

I never knew that just by saying words, you can have an orgasm.. wow this... more>> boi... This boiiiiiiii is straight up seducing even the readers... Whoohh it's soo warm here.

The way they flirt is sooo intense that it made me sweat buckets bruh


"Right. With my body in this state right now, having s*x with you constantly for 2 nights and 3 days won't be enough. I don't want to see a woman like you running around me. I feel like shoving my d*ck inside you until you beg for your life with tears in your eyes."

Was a decent story until 75% into the story (around chapter 9) where the plot logic took a nosedive.
Now, if it wasn't for the first 75% of the book plot exceeding expectations, this disappointing last quarter wouldn't have been as frustrating to read.

i agree with another review that the plot is basically taken from HK crime action/police thriller movies and the like. The author loves to say FL is smart. But she keeps making foolish choices. And she's labeled as observant because she guessed right that these two officers were dating when... we have never seen those two officers even interact with each other directly in the book! The two officers have only been in the same scene to debrief their part of the mission to the ML or FL about a situation. Lol the author just says FL figured it out without even showing the readers how she even got to that conclusion. But it's also funny how the FL, while snooping and eavesdropping outside a door, doesn't notice surveillance cameras in the hallways so she gets exposed and gets in trouble and the male lead has to save her. 😩 (after being caught she also tries to shoot YongSung gang's mafia boss because she thought he killed her parents).

some spoilers

So after the ML risks blowing his cover as a spy in order to save FL, he keeps her safe but locked up in his hotel room to prevent her from recklessly endanger herself (FL wanted to charge into the danger to kill Serim's mafia boss Kang SungHo to avenge her parents) SungHo had lied to her for 10 years while "raising"/grooming/abusing her about YongSung's boss being the one who ordered the mu*der when it was SungHo himself who killed them. FL's dad worked in the same gang as SungHo (Serim gang) and dad being 2nd in command (the successor) made SungHo jealous as he wanted to be the successor of Serim. By lying to FL, SungHo can use her and torture his dead rival's daughter at the same time.

Now while it's understandable that our FL (EunHa) wants her revenge but basically, she wants to endanger her life to lure her enemy into a trap (to steal the drugs from YongSung gang in China during a drug deal so Serim gang can profit). OK fine it's s*upid but she wants revenge. If she did it according to the plan she made with KyungHyun (the male lead) then it would be fine. But no, she has to jeopardize the whole plan by secretly flying to China herself so she can kill the dude herself instead of just having him arrested. So now the whole plan to lure the bad guy for her revenge goes awry.

next, the scene where it's supposed to be emotionally touching where ML stays behind to fend off the bad guys to give the FL a chance to escape was just so s*upid. The bad guys are trying to break down a set of heavy industrial metal doors to get to them, but there's hope! ML&FL found a secret escape tunnel and grabbed a gun from one of fallen bad guys next to them. But no! Instead of running away, they spend the next 5-10 minutes arguing about ML staying behind 🙄 and when they finally agreed that ML will stay behind so FL can get her revenge, they then proceed to take their time to say their final farewells like asking what movie she likes. 👍 she doesn't leave until the bad guys finally breaks down the doors. Why they don't use those 5-10 minutes to run away instead is beyond me. Then as the FL is running away in a tunnel that they think is an escape (it would be so funny if it ended up being a dead end), she hears gunshots and worries about ML because he didn't have a gun since he gave the one he picked up to her so those gunshots probably mean ML is being shot at. Well, if ML picked up a gun from one of the many bad guys on the floor, why not get another one? The logic is crap at this point.

And then the final revenge scene: FL lures Kang SungHo to the harbour with the drugs she "stole" for him so she can... shoot him dead.
So for some reason this mafia boss Kang SungHo doesn't bring a single lackey or bodyguard with him for this drug handoff?!

she conveniently shoots the evil mafia boss's legs and lets him provoke her so she runs close to him to slap him, and he disarms her by snapping her wrist (which I saw happening from a mile away as soon as she drew closer to him while "shakily" holding her gun and with tears blurring her vision). He then proceeds to strangle her... then when she breaks free after almost being strangled to death, she's crawling for the gun. At this time is when the police hiding in the nearby shipping containers come out and arrest the mafia boss... like shouldn't they have attempted to do that as soon as she got disarmed by SungHo? What if he got the gun and killed her? Strangled her to death? It makes no sense.

The ML's character was written pretty well in making him seem like a scary guy in the beginning who is always suspicious and astute. It's reflected well in the dialogue and his actions. He turns out to be a triple agent (a cop pretending to be a gangster working for Serim to be a spy at their rival gang YongSomething and became second in command at that rival gang company lol

Seriously, do all Korean novels have such well-written smut and intense plotline, or have I just been blessed in my selection? It interweaves sensual energy with action-packed thrills very deliciously. (♥ω♥*)

The melodrama works for the brutal mafia-like setting, there were just two instances where I felt a sense of ridiculousness...

... more>>

... Firstly, when KyunHyun had to 'sacrifice' himself and stay behind for EunHa to run away, and they tearfully said goodbye and had time to talk about movies and shit. I felt like they could have used that time to do something way more productive. Could have definitely run away together. Was there a reason why he had to keep them all there???

Second, when EunHa confronted scum of earth and shot him in both legs, definitely with the upper hand (he didn't have a gun on him?), but then somehow during their emotion-laden dialogue she loses the gun and scumlord beats her??? He couldn't even walk how did he overpower you.

I'm going to keep this short and simple. I genuinely love the chemistry between the MC and ML! The snusnu are a huge yes (I would say the same level on Lucia bc both ML really be going at it haha) and the plot itself has a really good development. I highly recommend anyone who wants to read this.

Just a warning though, there will be violence which the translator does an amazing job at notifying at the beginning of each chapter and you might get attached to the characters. *Sniff*... more>> I know I am. ;') <<less
