Yan Yu was your typical problem student during his elementary school years. He had received constant psychological blows from his class president, Chen Yifei, who also happened to be your typical model student. Feeling unresigned, Yan Yu was extremely determined to succeed, vowing to make “model students” like Chen Yifei work under “problem students” like him one day.

Fast forward to many years later. Yan Yu is a successful businessman, and he could barely remember his childhood days. Unexpectedly, Chen Yifei, who was at the top in every aspect of his life, came to Yan Yu’s company interview for the position as his assistant!

A journey filled with only sweetness begins.

The story is cute and fluffy. There is no drama. The thing I liked the most is how this story portraited different relationships and how the matter of having a previous relationship or having an ex was not made out to be a big deal. Yeah, there is no drama involved regarding that cliche stuff. Also, the way Yan Yu loves Chen Yifei (the ML) is very aggressive and cute XD And also the handle Yan Yu had on Chen Yifei from the being the boss! All around it was... more>> very cute.

The only thing I would like to point out is that the tags are wrong. Initially, I came for this story because the story had seme protagonist and straight seme protagonist tag. But I feel cheated because the tags are wrong. The MC Yan Yu is not straight seme. He is straight uke. And the ML Chen Yifei is the seme and he had an ex-boyfriend. So you get that the tags are misleading. But it was a happy accident I must say as I liked the story a lot.

So you can give it a go. It's short and a very cute light read! <<less

It's a good short novel. Can be finished in half a day. So give it a try, it would be worth it.

I read it via google translation after chapter 14th. Totally understandable.

Even though I recommend you to read this novel. But my review is honest and very critical and long so you might not like it.

... more>> ◆MC

He has a very lively personality. I liked him so much. He is very proactive. He likes to show off but he earned everything by his hardwork so has right to show off. He is really serious about his work and good at it.


He is total workaholic person. He likes to be a realistic person. He is no way comparable to the MC when it comes to romance. I can totally understand why his ex-boyfriend wouldn't feel freshness with him. Only a proactive person like the MC with unconditional love can handle such unexpressive lover.

Even though the MC find the ML perfect but he is not. He has rose tinted glasses for him.

【I personally don't like him. Maybe because I'm more into doting love interests.】


MC chased the ML. At the start I felt like MC was the one who gave in more, kinda feel that relationship was unbalanced with more efforts of the MC.

But it would be said that there were reasons for it like-

>They just started dating. Love comes with time.

>ML wanted to be equal to the MC. He considers MC better than him so wants to appropriate for him.

>ML is not as expressive as the MC.

But nevertheless you will feel that he does love the MC with the time.

So even with their own flaws, relationship is good.

◆Side Couples

There are 2 side CPs. I like them both. I specially liked the ex-boyfriend & college friend CP better. (Lol I don't remember the names anymore)

◆Special Mention

•MC's Homerun teacher : we need more such teachers in our education system. She was the one who motivated the MC.

•MC's mom : I really liked her first appearance.

◆Smut : Tbh I picked the novel because of smut. It's a good one. I specially like proactive MCs. I'm really tired of falsely refusing passive MCs. 【Why do they refuse or pretend just for the sake of it??? Well some of them are genuinly thin skin.】

There first time is in chapter


. It is not available on the chapter link but has been uploaded by translator on his/her discord. I couldn't find it so I read it in dawa via Google translation. Nevertheless I recommend you to read the novel. <<less

This was a cute short story but to me, I found it kind of.. Idk.. Lacking?

Don’t get me wrong. I loved it but not enough to reread it a bunch of times.

It was mostly the talk about the exes and how he ... more>>

“got the experience from him”

or whatever.. I know it’s realistic but it hurt me in a way (don’t mind me.. Very sensitive person coming through)

And the way the MC mostly did the chasing while the ML barely put in any work? I can’t decipher my feelings rn.. I just know it lacked a little something to me but all in all, it’s a good story to pass the time with. <<less

This is indeed a quick read. I love the flow of the story and there's little to no angst. The MC is also likeable. I don't quite like the ML though coz I generally go for doting and showy ml's and the ML in this novel is a bit cold for me. I also feel that the MC like him more than he likes the MC. I also find him too pragmatic when it comes to love so I question if he really fell for the MC or its just... more>> convenient. Not really the trope that I usually read but its still a great story. <<less

I need the smtty scenes asap!

Its short, its sweet, but I really don't like them both being in a relationship before. Maybe its just me who wants to live in an unrealistic world for a moment, but I don't like how the ML talks about his ex, specially the ones where the ex taught him what he knows about sx which was a downside for someone who's looking for a perfect love, reader like me.

But all in all, its alright. Its short so its a light read.

So many small heartwrenching... more>> pain,


the time when the MC was chasing the ML, but when it was the MLs turn to be sad, I don't feel that pain.


Haha! Maybe I'm just too biased!😆 But I still recommend this for the sweetness. <<less

I don't know how other people took this as beautiful - I wish I could hold onto this story as something beautiful


it was a whole disappointment

... more>> and it left me quite sad

The fact that Chen Yifei reacted with that lack of trust and "he'll return on the right path" parts - it had me heartbroken. I believe, when you fall for someone, it's never out of nowhere. You like a person, then you find affection for that person, then it blooms into more, into love.

The "work is above his relationship with Yan Yu" or that teasing after their first time ??

I understand that some characters have this setup of a cold, not able to express tenderness etc but it felt like Yan Yu was a mere toy to him, a simple "oh okay, I'll be his boyfriend if he's that insistent". <<less

Nice short story!!

It's just that I liked MC more than ML. They are both 30+, so their view of love is different from someone who is in early 20s. So I found it difficult to understand them, but later as the story progresses we can see they are both young in their heart towards each other, so I kind of liked it.

ML is someone who had many relationships, whereas MC is not, so I always felt MC is at disadvantage cause ML always act like MC is also just one... more>> of them at the start. Later he will improve but I still felt MC is way more better. <<less

Really cute ❤️

I love how they didn’t necessarily like each other in the beginning and everything just progressed to them eventually being together.

I also like how the story described the MC as having to still work really hard as the chairman of his company. I also like how open the story is about them

discussing that they had previous lovers or they had previous s*xual experiences already


The side couples are real cute too! Just Yu x Policeman just had too short segment and I think extras are needed!

Cute and very light read. ♥ (ˆ⌣ˆԅ) ALSO, not all people like PDA's, there are those who are very conservative BUT it doesn't mean that they love you less. I don't understand people not liking the ML because he's cold or something, imagine being lovey dovey in your work area with your boss, duh! He's in a very tight spot, he's the MC's secretary, he's already very discreet and yet people still has something to say behind his back. He wants to prove his worth and wants to separate their... more>> private life, what's wrong with that???

I like the ML and MC's interaction, it's not overly done. It's to my liking, I've already read a lot of BL's and it's very tiring where the ML's overly expressive and too showy, don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with that, but for hating the ML just because he's not the same as your usual trope, lmao!

Overall, this is a sweet, short read. <<less

I liked it from the start but not so much later. I don't feel CY emotions that much. Lol, I've read many cold and restrained personalities but I could still feel their emotions, so that's not an excuse. I don't think he liked YY that much. YY was cute. Maybe I could have felt it more with their s*x scenes but I wasn't able to access it, so I couldn't read them.

The other couples didn't interest me and the characters aren't that interesting or likeable. I don't know if it's... more>> the characters or the translation, their sentences usually comes out cold and mechanical.

It was just okay. <<less

Read some negative reviews and was a little apprehensive starting this, but after reading I can safely say that although I understand where they're coming from, I disagree with the sentiment that ML doesn't care about the MC. Spoilers for this whole review I guess, but it's a short novel so what can you do.

First of all, I think the ML just has a more restrained personality than the MC. He doesn't act on his emotions right away and he's overall a very mature character. I think he actually provides... more>> a really good contrast to the MC, who is more emotion driven and very open about communicating his feelings. It's not quite right to say that ML doesn't care about the MC or doesn't love him, he's just more cautious with how he approaches relationships and he doesn't just jump into one without considering all the implications. After all MC is his boss, and also seemingly straight before confessing his feelings.

Since the bulk of the novel is in MC's POV, we're obviously going to believe that MC's feelings are genuine when he confesses to ML since we get a look into his mind, but for the ML, he has just admitted his sexuality, and then suddenly the other man is showing interest. It makes complete sense that he would be a little suspicious, or at the very least hesitant to just accept the MC right away. It's not even that long of a time that he thinks about it, and once they do get into a relationship, ML treats MC very well, doing all the things a doting boyfriend would do.

I think where this novel may fall short is that the author does a lot of telling rather than showing ML's feelings, which makes him feel less genuinely in love. We are told that ML has feelings for MC, but I honestly didn't really feel the extreme passion that I get from other romance novels. However, I think this is just how the ML is, as he doesn't seem like the kind of person who would feel things that deeply, and he's very good at managing the emotions that do come up. After all, when he thinks on his past failed relationship, the man literally has no emotions about it lol. There's a scene where he and his ex talk things out, but it's all very calm, and ML had no feelings of regret, shame, or anything. He's relatively cold for a character and he doesn't soften up too much over the course of the novel, which I would have liked to see. Still it's really down to whether MC feels loved and happy in his relationship, and he clearly does.

Overall would say this is more of a comedy slice of life than a pure romance, but that's not to say that the main couple isn't very cute together! They're definitely a good match, and I do like their relationship of spoiled president and quietly doting secretary. Both of them are quite competent at their jobs and they share similar priorities, and it was nice to see them talking through conflicts with maturity and truly caring about each others happiness. It's a short and sweet read, and if I had to comment on the side couples, I liked the one with the ML's ex and old college friend, but not really the one with the MC's friend and the policeman (honestly don't even remember how they met). Main couple definitely the best though! <<less

The phrase of ML wanting MC to put work before him, and even explicitly thought that his position as mc's secretary is more important than as his boyfriend is really makes me hurt and dissapointed. Even I feel my heart chilled.

ML also barely put any effort for their relationship to the point I want him to suffer a bit (idk, like from jealousy, parting, or even love rival).

This novel is cute but I kinda feels that their interaction doesn't appeals me much

It's a relaxed recommended read. The short story is quite cute and realistic enough. Characters both have their strengths and vulnerabilities... I think well balanced enough. I enjoyed reading this novel in one go till the end but wouldn't reread. Smut scenes felt just so so... don't know if it's how original text is or it's 'cause of translation.

Right now I don't really like it much and the main MC Yan Yu kinda pisses me off, it's like he's so bitter at Chen Yufei cause he was better than him in school and maybe there is more to it but him disliking Chen Yufei and then finding ways to put him down or embarrass him stems from teachers making comparisons between them and a girl he liked liking Chen Yufei and none of that is Chen Yufei's like it's so irritating. It's an alright read.

I love every bits of it. The idea of getting the smartest guy and the most problematic one together would never fail to satisfy me. I was satisfied on how it ends, I was reluctant to part with it but it was good that it ends that way. Their relationship feels so natural. I love Yan Yu's personality so much. 🥺

This was a short, fun, wish fulfilling read (for the grade a student that they will have some sugar daddy in the future even if they become an office worker, and for the slacker that they'll eventually be able to boss around the school darling).

I thought the dynamic was very sweet, though the falling in love process was a bit strange.

A childhood connection leading to an adult romance is a very common story. However, instead of contrived chance meetings and character bending choices leading to love this story evolves in a completely organic way. Both our leads and the secondary characters are complex and believable. The world is a lightly painted setting for the story to evolve within at a slow satisfying pace.

If you like sweetly funny romance, I strongly recommend.

Short, simple, sweet.

I really liked the narrative and that the shou was such an active participant in establishing the relationship and ensuring it stayed in place even during difficulty.

Also, and I know this point is weird, I really liked seeing a character express "work relationships come before personal relationships".

The story is enjoyable thanks to the translator. They did an amazing job. Kudos to you translator. I like the MC very much Yan yu is a fun person, but for some reason I fail to connect with the ML. I don't feel his sincerity toward the MC. Like ZAVIRA had mentioned above. I have the same feeling. The ML didn't put much effort. I too, wanted him to suffer a little. Lol. So three star for the translator and the smut.
