On the wedding night, she was tied to his bed.

“Woman, you dare marry another man!”

He was like a wolf as he devoured her until nothing was left.

“So the person forcing me into bed was you! You beast in human skin!” She clenched her teeth as she pushed against the wall to stand out of the bed.

She, a king from modern times, was reborn. All those that owed her had to pay blood debts.

But this king of evildoers, she had obviously not seen him before. Yet, she had to repay him with her body every night……

I have never met a more infuriating and annoying villain (and side characters since everybody in this novel seems to be doing a spectacular job of pissing me off). I'll give the author props for giving the baddies more than the usual cannon fodder characteristics. However, it's been almost 400 chapters, can we please move onto a different stage of this terribly-created romantic tragedy? (I cringe at even mentioning romance since the actual romance parts are sparse and few) Seriously, a lot of these troubles are completely unnecessary and occur due to repeated bad decisions made by our heroine and male lead (inserted exasperated facepalm). Like, a divorce will be so close that you could almost touch it and then, "Wait, I'm actually in love with you and not your sister! Let's not get divorced after all and stay married!". This whole thing will happen in FRONT of the male lead who will be doing absolutely nothing because he's kind of powerless and useless. Oh, he's cute and adorable but still kind of useless.

Honestly, I'm starting to pray for the deaths of literally everyone at this point. One character has gone completely off their rocker and decided to do the whole yandere "locking up my love" thing (Okay, so maybe it was completely expected...) and it's making me wonder about whether to even bother with continuing this novel. I can say, with complete honesty, that I am currently much more invested in the royal aunt's love story than the main plot (which is a huge pity because her love story lasted about three paragraphs only and was already a million times more interesting).

So, final verdict? Read if immensely bored and feeling super good about humanity (trust me, it'll either bring you down from optimism to straight pessimism or you'll just hate humans for a few long hours). Other than that, male leads (minus a-hole husband—he belongs in a very special tr*sh pile) are super adorable so at least there's some cute scenes?

Well, first of all... the premise wise this is NOT an original story for Chinese Web Novel. I REPEAT it's not original but the usual terrible husband and white lotus sister. We know how much this setting grows like cancer in web novel community next to Isekai Reincarnation in Japanese web novel, but we can't stop ourselves from loving the various takes available anyway~

However this novel manage to have original takes in this familiar setting.

For one, she is not so ruthless and blindly seeking revenge to her husband and sister.... more>> She did humiliate them but she tried her best in getting the hell out of their way and live leisurely instead. She does fight back when she is cornered, but not overly so. She is a street smart and obviously have extensive knowledge about cuisine so she could have killed her annoying family members but she didn't.

Take note, her specialty seems to be detective like mind and smart mouth to swindle people. So yes, the meat of this novel is reading how cunning she is in earning money and defending herself. This could be boring for some since there romance is still nonexistent by chapter 100 as in... the possibly Male Lead didn't meet her properly yet. The synopsis is also hella misleading if you expect to see that scene by now, it's an intriguing synopsis but... yeah, annoying since we haven't get there yet.

So this is for patient reader looking for comedy and witty MC, as for romance... don't start reading this for it. You would be disappointed. <<less

[Her husband isn't male lead. Emperor is male lead he is money boy she meet him at street] This translation is good I like this novel, it's all about having villain husband who tried to kill MC. He unable to kill her because our MC is cunning smart she strong. She make her husband powerless humiliation. This novel also has comedy part, has interested part.

Binge-read up to ch. 98 and wasn't bored even once!

Instead of your typical martial arts genius, godly doctor or incapable-dumb-dumb that can't do anything w/o a ML - she has the smarts, is a cunning independent fox, thicker skinned than your great-aunty and yet not a ridiculous "if she claimed to be second no-one would claim first" cheat bullsh*t in every area.

The only things she's working with is her great memory, behavioural analyzis skills and brains.

... more>> Neither is she a saint nor a ruthless person snapping necks or scheming kills.

In my opinion her way of revenge is rather refreshing and unique compared to other FL's.


Instead of stunning everyone with her beauty upon her debut, she makes herself look like a hideous monster to embarress her still-husband on his wedding with her sister - with all the officials present.

Or the way she orchestrated a symphony à-la-gas for the newlywed and court to hear and smell 😂

And that without using poison!

The way she cons her way through trouble and almost everytime being able to surpass the hurdle is quite entertaining. Especially her way of talking or resorting to... alternative options *cough* 😁

Of course it'd be boring if she'd be all-knowing and mighty : a few struggles won't throw her off that fast! (๑•̀ㅂ•́) و✧

And as Alina already mentioned the misconception some harbour : Her current/first/soon-to-be-ex-Husband Chu Shao Yang (I hope I remembered the name correctly) is NOT - I repeat- IS. NOT. the male lead !!! 冏

A little spoiler *cough* read the synopsis *cough*

His Highness the as*hole seems to be the nephew of the Emperor - so quite far away from having a shot at the thrown (>_>)


Haah~ And about the plot pace: I couldn't be bothered even if it'd take 1000 chapters for the FL to fall for the ML. If you are familiar with a few other popular CNovels, such things aren't even that worthy to mention. And compared to those - this Novel at least offers great entertainment instead of incredibly long fillers that talk in circles without having anyone take more than three steps in 10 chapters 冏


I mean she has thoroughly humiliated her husband, his concubine, escaped some calmaties coming her way already, taken controlled over key-servants in the wangfu, gained a certain degree of freedom without ass-band knowing, earned a fortune for a meal + found a source for money, met and attracted the gaze of the probably-ML and THAT in under 100 chapters! Hmpf!



Anyways, that novel's humor is quite to my liking - everone their own 😜 <<less

The female MC has a decent personality. Until she loses it over and over to idiotic repeated events. It's the same thing over and over, the story is interesting but turns into word padding fast. Writing so the author gets paid because of word count it's horrible. The story loses all its flare. Soon after the start it turns into garbage that repeats itself over and over. No progress is made in the story so it quickly turns into a slog of the same plot repeated again and again. You... more>> just want something meaningful to happen, but you get nothing but word count padding instead. <<less

Initially I thought that Hanawie was too tough with review & rating. Considering there werent any other comments here, I decided to give it a try and now I honestly find 2 stars to be more than enough for this LN.

78 chapters in and there has been no plot progress to speak of... it's all random things the MC is doing. Furthermore she is taking her situation way too lightly! I know it has a comedy tag, but her actions in face of the situation really don't make sense.

The MC... more>> and ML might be the only redeeming points of this story. Although it's too soon to judge that (im just guessing) <<less

INDIPENDENT Main Charecter- very good story the main charecter is not too cruel -she gets revenge in creative ways- Negatives- some of the maids were acting too unnrealisticly at the start name calling the princess to her face- also farting in front of king the prince should have called in sick so its a bit too much comedy.

the only negative is the chapters too short the translator is awsome

First, the summary above "On the wedding night, she was tied to his bed. “Woman, you dare marry another man!” He was like a wolf as he devoured her until nothing was left."

*** the summary is really from outer space. Its nothing like this

you will reach chapter 900+ and they got married at this point

the transmigrated FL has a lot of lovers, there's the Chu brothers, there's the emperor and there's the emperor of a foreign land. Even up to this date, they are fighting for her and both the... more>> FL and ML are still virgins since most of the storyline is about stealing her from one and then escaping and being captured and reuniting again. <<less

First to explain where I am comming from. I binge read this story to chapter 517 at the time it was translated up to chapter 917.

To explain the story shortly yhe FL reincarnates to find out she is married with a man who takes her little half sister as a concubine within days after their wedding. Both her huisband an little sister are abusive and filled with killing intent towards her. The female lead thus fights to have a devorce.

Positive points :

  • The FL is a rather lazy woman who wishes to spent her days in peace. Personally I like that about her.
  • She has an reactive personality with moral princeples. This means up to where I read she reacts to retaliate without going overboard.
  • The story is in the early stages wel written and often very funny. You often get an explanation after an event already has taken place which allows you to be suprised about the wittyness of the plot.
Negative points :

  • Earlier I said FL is reactive and that is Positive. Hoever when she asks the emperor for her devorce it becomes a very negative point.

    She is asked to give a reason as to why she wants a devorce. She shortly without extra fanfare give three reason. He counters with a sobstory that he always loved her and was mislead by her little sister. She only counters with my sister is already pregnant with your child not once does she mention the things he did like try to drown her ect. She could have pulled the frightned pity card but didn't. She also could have pulled the card if You did always love how could have kept making that mistake and only today ask for my firgiveness. Combined she would have most likely been devorce.

  • The ML and other males. She keeps the males on a string. She doesn't mean to but she does. Some blantanly confess making them think they have a chance she doesn't really refuse them and next time they meet she greets them with a smile. She makes an absolute mess of things like this.
  • The ML, if you see a woman is not suitable for the palace than cut her off. It is clear that FL wants to travel the world and do things at her own pace. Being an emperor is a lifestyle and most of the time a life occupation. You can't keep a woman around who is't prepared to lose something for the sake of the country.
My honest opinion is that te story is a with many shortcommings but also very enjoyble to read because the FL is not overpowered and does have a moral character except on matter related to feelings of the heart.

Translation is good. That's about all the good I can say about the story so far. Otherwise, it's so darn boring. I don't need a story to be super good to give it a good rating, it just needs to be entertaining. But I had to force myself to even get as far as I did, simply because there is absolutely nothing that ever happens, the bad characters are so cliche, and the maid girl to the MC is completely s*upid and obnoxious.

... more>>

The story is set up with the always cliche trope of the viperous "white lotus" sister and her sucker lover/MC husband who is an absolute ass who falls for the sister's supposed "innocence". Except somehow the story even "improves" on it by making the lover/MC's husband a very special kind of "a-hole husband who belongs in a very special tr*sh pile" as Hanawie called him. He's even more vicious and detestable to the MC than the s*upid male suckers usually are.

It was quite good in the later chapters. I just couldn't understand why they say that the ML is the hidden, the ever mysterious male with a very exaggerating background and not to mention the ever boring character Ive ever read in my life. Seriously, the supposedly ML have barely existence in the novel. He was always overshadowed by Hubby, atleast the husband and MC has a LOT of moments even though it was mostly because of bickering. The husband can atleast show his adoration to the MC even though... more>> its in ridiculous ways, being possessive and overly overbearing overall. How can I like the ML if he is just literally hiding, his character being overly mysterious making him very boring and forgettable. I barely remember his interactions with the MC. The hubby and MC has more unforgettable interactions. Im actually doubting that the supposedly ML is the REAL ML because he was just barely existing. <<less

In the beginning I really loved this story, out of all the romance webnovels I've read I thought this one was the ONE with the best romance, unfortunately good things dont last long.😔

After reading for 800+ chapters I decided to MTL the rest. Im at 3245 and OMG I cant even! There are sooo many conflicts, its like one thing after another. Its exasperating, you can't catch a break! I get that conflicts are the driving force of a novel but atleast give us some sweetness to balance it out.

... more>>

This novel was pretty good until they threw in amnesia, the FL got amnesia and forgot the ML, and was caught by Chu Shao Yang. For one second I thought Chu Shao Yang was redeemable but NOPE! This guy will forever be a villain! I cant believe what he did! He took advantage of her amnesia and married her again, prior to their wedding, the real soul appeared and acted all pathetic causing Chu Shao Yang to loathe her and humiliate the FL on their wedding day. I have to wonder if Chu Shao Bai really loved the FL, cuz when she lost her memory, he allowed her to be with his brother despite knowing they wouldnt work out, and knowing he was a despicable man. I thought he and Mo Chuan were good friends, so why is this guy allowing this to happen? It really makes me question this guys character. On the other hand I feel bad for Mo Chuan, he's obviously the emperor but he doesnt have the power to do what he wishes cuz of the empress dowager. He has to respect her wishes becuz she got the throne for him and and worked so hard for his future and filial piety. His mother wants the best for him but what she thinks is best is not necessarily in his best interests. He is suffering under the oppression of her motherly love and he can't do anything about it, but submit to her wishes. Empress dowager-his mother be acting all crazy and melodramatic, threatening to commit suicide just to get her way, its really disgusting. The empress dowager is the real antagonist!

And I wish the FL would be more proactive in her revenge against Chu Shao Yang for the wedding night fiasco, but so far nothing. I'm not a vengeful person but this guys done so much heinous sh*t and theres no retribution so far!


Honestly, with all this mayhem and drama I can't even bring myself to continue reading it! Its really a dog blood drama! Its become annoying especially when I can't see the happy ending in the horizon. <<less

The most s*upid and infuriating story I've ever read in my whole life...!

I personally believe and experienced many occasions that made me have this one ultimate personal value : REGARDING WHAT HAPPEN TO YOU, WHETHER IT WAS IN THE PAST, RIGHT NOW, OR WILL HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE, YOU HAVE A CONTROL OF YOUR OWN LIFE, HAPPINESS, AND CHOICES.

Believe or not, it is really happened to me.

The MC is smart, alright. But not smart enough to take control of everything. She need to read Sun Tzu's book. Or whatever any... more>> good strategy book.

She f*cking fight rock with rock! Too bad the her opponent's rock is bigger and harder to break! Such a Morron.

She have choice to act humble in front but sharp and deadly in the shadow...

But she doesn't... The result??? Her rock is the one who first destroyed...

How smart. <<less

Interesting at first, no progress after 600+ chapters, things are not getting solved, just more mess around the corner.

MC is good, until she allows all men to treat her like an object. She allows the men around ver to treat her like an object, than can be owned with no reply (she comes from mothern times, for goodness shake!!!).

Husband is perfect study example of a sickening abuser. Admirer 1 is egoistic and naive, needs spanking. Prince form other country is worst than husband. ML is the only one more or... more>> less normal.

Will drop it, I got tired of waiting for something to happen. <<less

It's been a while since I first came upon this novel and I think I reached around 200 chapters before I gave up.
I simply got too aggravated from the lack of progress in the story and the s*upidity, from both the FL and ML, that just kept going on and on and on repeatedly, like a broken record.

Today, just for the heck of it, I randomly chose one of the newer chapters to see if the novel got any better. Guess what, I nearly coughed up blood from the... more>> same aggravation as last time. #Regret <<less

This is the most infuriating novel I've read so far. The men who are inlove with the FL are all s*upid. I don't like the Empress Dowager the most. The long winded explanations are kinda like fillers for me. The story's great but ugh I can't explain much bc its gonna be a spoiler. Anw, read at your own risk. I think I'm gonna die from anger.

P.S.: This is just my personal opinion.

At first, it quite interesting, but after more than 100 chapter it getting more and more boring plus worst feeling, ML really so weak at the end, although he is Emperor, and for the Jerk Husband is getting more and more strong with all of his "yandere" personality and ML once again is very-very-very weak to against all of his rival, , , ,

If I can give minus to this novel, I will give the most minus....

Please read spoiler before you read this novel, it will be easy for... more>> you to decide (continue or not)...


Don't Read this novel if you have WEAK HEART or HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, because it will challenge you adrenalin, at worst something in your room will become victim including you Gadget...

The start of the story was good but as it progresses, the hype and interest decreases. So far, the story hadn't given me a reason to continue reading this till the raws. The goals aren't that clear and strategies are messed up. Anyways, I guess I'll read the raws if I really had no light novels to read anymore.
