Despite growing up together, both of them seem to treat each other as an eyesore. She labels him as a jerk and womanizer while in his eyes, she is a shrew.

There's nothing amazing about this story. It's a cliches on top of one another but it's not that bad to the point I want to slam my head against the desk. It's definitely not as bad as all the one-star ratings seems, but not as good as the five-star ratings make it out to be.

  • MC seems kind of indecisive which I don't like and ML just seems like a douche, the classic 'overbearing' type that Qidian seems to have a thing for.

    For example, he tries to block her from meeting her first love constantly which I don't understand because he's literally drawn the line between the two (MC/ML) as only friends since ML is still cares for his first love at that point? (he fell for her because they slept together when he was drunk because she had a soft voice or something like that; who wants to bet that it was the MC that he actually slept with and not the other girl he thinks)

  • Plot: seems bland and there's not much to keep me hooked apart from seeing what is so compelling about the ML that the MC likes him.

Also MTL'd so I would be able to figure out why the ML is such an a-hole. 157 chapters in and the only thing ML has just realised is that he's fallen for MC. This is of course after 40 wholesome chapters of him getting super upset over MC's interactions with the second ML.


  • Characters: I definitely have respect for MC for putting up with ML the entire time. ML is one-dimesional (has some moments but in comparison to his bad ones, completely cancels out) and so is the majority of the characters. The only person I really liked enough to keep going and rate the story as 3/5 instead of 2/5 is the second male lead. Seriously, he's the best. I hope he finds happiness with or without FL...
tldr; Cliche story about childhood friends (ML = overbearing, rich, president type while MC = indecisive, plain Mary Sue) who have secretly fallen in love with each other and are forced together to marry (157 chapters in and there hasn't been much mentioned in relation to the description given).

Rating: 2/5 but second ML makes it a 3/5

Would I recommend: Only if you're bored OR have a thing for these kind of tropes... or maybe you want to read a Qidian story...

Pretty ok read to pass time with. It isn't as triggering as other stories of such genres, wherein the misunderstandings are mainly contained between the FL and ML. Initially FL is insecure and dare not confess her unrequited feelings for ML. I do not blame her as ML's actions repeatedly discourage her from doing so. Side characters do not take center stage much and serve as background noise. This is a bonus for me as I've long grown tired of stories w extensive focus on redundant characters. Review by user... more>> Notawordybir is pretty comprehensive and touched on many points that I agree with. <<less

Nope...I have read many Chinese novels in this genre but this just doesn't do it to me.. first ML acts idiotically. Then he tries to express his love but FL is making excuses in her head for everything nice he does. This couple will never go anywhere...
