Though it felt a little awkward to be my good brother’s aunt, it was really exciting to find out how handsome and rich his uncle was.

I stewed over this for a few days, but decided I should write this review. I regret not coming here to NU first to look at reviews; instead, I glanced at the glowing reviews on the translation webpage and then dove straight in. The 1 star is for the translator for their effort and for myself for sitting through this. (Though I am pretty appalled that this site charges for subpar translations; at least bring in an editor.)

This short story should come with the tags: manipulation, blackmail, age gap,... more>> dub-con/non-con, stalking, implied incest, and so on. To be fair, I can read darker novels if the premise is good and the things that happen don't get swept under the rug or glossed over. This novel is not - it's unfortunately quite far from it.

It starts off relatively amusing with the MC's antics. The MC is still 17 years old at the beginning, and ends up in the body of a 24 year old man with a beautiful face but loose morals. That guy is married to the ML, who is 34. I can take age gaps of around 10 years, but this is a 17-year mental age gap where one of them is a minor. And despite the MC telling everyone that he lost his memories so his mental age is 17, the ML forces the MC into compromising situations and sexual favors. Although they don't go all the way, it's still very uncomfortable to read. Okay, one can argue that no one knows that he replaced the original owner of the body, but it was definitely dub-con. Unfortunately, the novel gets progressively horrifying.

A side characters gets introduced: a guy with long hair and beautiful elfin looks. The MC starts calling him a sl*t after assuming that he's the guy the ML (who the MC has been trying to get divorced from for the past god knows how many chapters so, um, what?) is cheating on him with. Thus, the effeminate looking guys in here are all supposedly promiscuous and loose. Wow, the misogyny is strong in this one. This side character turns out to be ML's good friend and later forms a 'couple' with the MC's best friend through seduction and blackmail.

The last few chapters and the ending really made me speechless to the point where I was genuinely asking, "Why the hell did I do this to myself?" The following is a real spoiler about the ending, but I really want to call it out for what it is.


Within the last few chapters, the MC turns 18 and the ML 'releases' him after celebrating his birthday with him and doting on him. He takes the luggage and money the ML prepared, but has nowhere to go so he goes to find his best friend. We find out that the MC is an orphan and has no one to rely on. The side character tags along with them to go out drinking, and he gets the best friend to bang him in the bathroom while the MC is piss drunk on the couch. At first, the best friend was the only redeeming character because he was genuinely worried for the MC and had a crush on him to boot. But later, we find out from his thoughts that after meeting elfin guy, he's starting to worry for the MC less and less. What kinda best friend??????

The MC wakes up and finds out the ML picked him up and brought him to another one of his properties. The MC realizes that he likes the ML and goes scrambling back to find him. This time, they go all the way, but it's STILL dub-con. The MC reluctantly accepts that the ML is insatiable, and they go at it like rabbits.

Oh ho, you'd think this is the end. Oh no. All of a sudden, someone comes ringing their door bell and the MC is all confused because that person acts as if they know him and everything that's going on. That person turns out to be the original owner of the body in someone else's body. The original owner's brother is behind him (and he teases the original owner right in front of the MC and ML). Oh god, what the hell is going on.

Later that night, the original owner takes the MC aside and tells him that they all swapped bodies because of some damn amulet they were all wearing. What happened to the guy whose body the original owner took, no one knows. All right fine, if elfin guy supposedly has a third eye and knew the MC was in the original owner's body (what he blackmailed the best friend with), then this isn't too out of left field.

THEN. THEN!!! The original owner reveals that they KNEW ALL ALONG that the MC is in his body: original owner's brother, elfin guy, and obviously the ML. WHAT? It turns out that the ML met the MC back when the best friend threw some party and the ML randomly showed up at the property. Then, he took to stalking the MC. A man in his 30's stalking a high school kid, then orchestrating it so he ends up in the body of another man and is forcefully bound to him by marriage.

The original owner also goes into thinking about his own brother groping him in this body despite knowing who he is, and how for some reason, he can't leave his brother or he'd panic. Then, the original owner tells the MC to be careful, don't believe everything he's told, and that if the ML gives him money, he should save it just in case.

When everyone leaves, the MC musters up the courage to confront the ML, but the ML grabs the MC and teases him, obviously looking for s*x. THE END.


That's it??????


Obviously, this story is fiction, but I really couldn't sit here without pointing out that this is manipulation of not one, but THREE people. Like the previous reviewer said, this is not romance. <<less

It is a funny and in some parts sweet story. However, the end, instead of clarifying some things, made it more confusing.

like, the original owner of the body is now his brother's (biological brother from the original body? Who he were probably raised with?) lover?? And that about the ammulets, as well as the stalking were really confusing and poorly explained. I was ??????


There were also some things that at the begging seemed like important parts of the story that ended up spoiled in prol of the almost inexistent plot.

Liang, for example, went from a central character (he's even in the title!!!), to a disposable plot device. He was the best friend, the only present person on Chen's life, as well as a probable love rival of Bo, to nothing!


And there was something I really hated:

in the penetration scenes, there was no consent, Chen were constantly saying no, but Bo never listened and f*cked him how, where, and until when he wanted, giving no f*cks about his wishes and/or physical condition. This, and also the part about stalking totally ruined the story for me.


Summing up, the story had a bit of potential, specially the humour bit, however, it was badly developed and writen (there were some minor things with the translation too, but it didn't affect the reading experience), and the good parts of the story (the sweetness, the smut) ended up destroyed by it (bad writing and story building).

The more chapters I read, the more I hated the novel. Story is boring no plot no nothing. The only thing that is good is the comedy heh you guys sure can laugh....I don't like it I feel like the ML is just playing with the MC there's no romance vibes does the MC even like the ML?It feels like ML doesn't even like MC either and I don't like how the story isn't descriptive enough. The story is just so bad I'm like shook. Dont read if you want... more>> "proper" romance (not literally). What I meant is realistic one and where you feel the interaction between the ML and MC. Just not good enough....
The story is so bad like really you will hate the last chapter unless you have 0 iq.

Yeah it's so sweet yeah sure people... Don't forget to brush your teeth.

Little to no romance story well whatever. <<less

This one is actually really hectic with its characterization but it's entertaining!

Personal views tho :

MC has a cute straight guy attitude with the tsundere all over teehee. Man the second hand embarrassment sometimes from him hahaha, I just wish the MC could be more sensible and be quick witted a bit hmm. But he's warm.

ML damn that guy POSSESSIVE, certainly loves MC for who he is and the way he is. Aww. But I just don't like how he loves forcing s*x on MC and then when it finally penetrates... more>> for the first time, a s*x merathon follows. So painful but yeah it was funnnn, well MC looks OK with it.

The only perosn I'm approve with is the short appearance of Ke Zhen, making less trouble, change his ways and being caring to MC in his own way. That's growth. Glad he realises he has been given a better life and is happy.

The ending is so abrupt I press NEXT frantically but nothing happen HAHAHAHAH. <<less

I thought this novel was quite fun. It's not life changing, has no deep moral, but was a way to while away an hour or so. The end felt a bit rushed and mashed together, but it did a good job of making sure there were no one sided loves or pining side characters. I liked how there were no really bad characters in this story, which is unusual for a Chinese novel.

(BTW, I fat-fingered the rating, I would only give this a 4 star, not a 5. Oh... more>> well) <<less

I like the protagonists couple and both their character ?

but what about the end that so abruptly stop! JUST LIKE THAT?! My dear lord, is it me who read the uncomplete version? Or maybe the author just let the reader to think about the continuation themselves? ?? but I really like their overall interactions that not easily reconciled that they need more effort to pursue their love live (eventhough it's just abruptly end like that)


I like the main couple, but I don't like the side couple of Liang Yunsheng who so quickly turn his heart to a new another person so easily bc I think he also love Chen Shi from the start, how could he easily being seduced by that Yu guy and said 'you know it' after Yu guy said 'do you like me?' or maybe bc they just a side character that their story not fully told but I still think it's to fast and hurt a little ? (Hehe kidding (^o^) /)

So far funny and has good energy in between the characters.

Translation quality is a bit unpolished but it's readable.

Pick-up for a light and funny read.

I love this so far. It’s very short read and so far I can see the funny interactions between the MC & ML.

It gets straight into the drama so some parts are a bit surreal (ie the MC best friend knows and his quick acceptance reaction).

but I am looking forward to read the rest!!!

I do not like the MC, ML, or side character. The MC throws tantrums every chapter and acts like a child. The ML is possessive, perverted, and doesn't seem to understand that teasing someone so much that they're scared stiff isn't always the best way to make them fall in love with you. And the MCs best friend is in love with him for half the novel? Then he gets blackmailed by someone in love with him? And eventually they end up together and he supports the MC and MLs... more>> ship? The plot made no sense at all. <<less

It's amusing and entertaining to read. The only downsides is that in the first chapter, the 'aunt' was referred to as both 'she/her' and 'he/his'. It left me really confused and unsure if the MC was dumped into the body of a woman or a man. It turns out the aunt is indeed a man, and it was just the translator who made the error. After chapter 1, the aunt is always referred to as a male.

There are also some mistakes that have me wondering if the translator speaks English... more>> fluently. Sometimes a character will say something like 'I'm painful' instead of 'I'm in pain' or 'I'm hurt'. It doesn't happen too often, so you can easily ignore it, but if the translator got a beta to fix the 'she/her' errors as well as the mistakes in word choice, then I'd definitely consider the story a 5 star. <<less

So the story was good, it was funny and full of fluff, I love how the MC interact with his best friend and also the side couple kyaah! But I gave it a four 'cause of the abrupt ending it just that it should not end there and the translation sometimes the him/he became she which confuse me and other readers. Anyway it was good if you want a short and fluffy story with comedy read this, just bear with the translation.

I honestly gotta say thing is f-ing hilarious. The author is a genius.

There never a dull moment in every single chapter. The main couple was hilarious (mostly the shou) and the best friend duo. LMAO (〒﹏〒)

Simple a good book

If it really completed (at least the translation version) I felt the ending too rushed. Sure we get some answer, but we also get lot of questions.
But overall, beside the ending, everything is actually Great!
I Love the Characters. I Love the MC. Enjoyed the friendship with his Best friend. Definitely enjoyed the push and pull relationship between MC and ML. It's something that made you want to reread the whole thing again because the thing that revealed in the end. This story will give you two perspective, the... more>> first time you read this, and finally when you re-read this after you finished.
I definitely didn't expect the Smut. So many Smut and everything is Great!
it's not Perfect, but I definitely Enjoyed and Love this novel. It's suitable to my taste. I just wish there's more chapter to answer the question that appear in the ending. Sigh. <<less

The story itself is fairly entertaining and the interactions between each character is humorous.

Some things that weren't great were:

1) the ending. It didn't really feel like an ending, and I was a bit befuddled to see "The End" when I reached the bottom of the chapter. Although there was an "explanation" for why certain things happened in the story, it just didn't feel conclusive.

2) age difference. Alright, this might just be me, but I just can't help but think about how the MC is mentally only 17-18, while the ML... more>> is 34. The story just kind of glazes over this fact, as well as how the ML

stalked the MC for some time before the MC woke up as his "wife"...

It's kind of weird.

3) this part isn't a ding against the story itself, but it will affect your reading experience so I thought I might mention it for a head's up. The translation can get a bit wonky and makes the story a hard to understand, BUT the story is still entertaining regardless.

If you want something funny to read and you don't mind fairly large age differences, then I recommend this. It's HE too. <<less

The story is funny. Since it's such a short story so the story flows is pretty much straight to the point. I really enjoyed it. So 4 stars for the story itself.

3 stars for the translation. The translation is either from MTL or the translator him/herself is not proficient enough in English. The MC is actually a male. There were times where the translation changed MC gender from he to she. There's also a situation where MC & ML at that time were having take away at home then suddenly... more>> MC got carried by ML from restaurant to the bedroom. (I think the translator was trying to say from dining room to bedroom??)

Anyway I still appreciate the effort of the translator (s). If you used to reading MTL like me, you can figure the translation easily and enjoy the story~ <<less

I was highly disappointed after reading this story. What's wrong with the characters? They are popping out of nowhere and left without proper explanation. So the Bo Uncle was a stalker. He is giving me creeps. How the hell did he find the truth? I am going crazy. Regret reading this.
