After an accidental death, in order to continue to live, Gu Bai had to choose to go through various wonderful books to complete tasks.

Every time he became a variety of small cannon fodder inside the story, Gu Bai’s code of conduct when completing task is – by all means, don’t be inferior, don’t be shameless, don’t be upright… hold on to a golden thigh.

… N times after transmigrating

Cannon fodder: (angry contempt) … You’re already so powerful, why are you still shamelessly holding on to a golden thigh to deal with us!?

Gu Bai: (deadpan) That… holding and holding… got used to it…

First time to review, but I just have to note that its a sibling to 'Quickly face the devil'.

Unlike the MC in Quickly, this MC is in the more neutral and down to earth kind attitude. But he's not too neutral that's classified as cold hearted. He has clear mind and straight forward goals. From "Right. Let me just finish this and I'll get back to you, kay?" to "Oh? Oh! Okay, I see where this is going, and I like it, don't mind if I do"

ML's possessive-ness, multiple... more>> words, transmigration is similar to Quickly that's why I dubbed it as a sibling. Not twins. Sibling.

Well I am just on Ch 16 so I can't say if this has revenge on MC's part, or perhaps grown to have a revengeful side but he's attitude is super refreshing, like a spring breeze. From the synopsis, I betting he'd be the type of MC who grows to be CRYING over spilled milk (holding the golden thigh) after transferring multiple worlds like
" ; w ; huhu what have I done!? Is there no hope in finishing, ML please let me do my job in peace #sendHelp# #needWalkthrough# " then gets eaten throughly by ML.

Try it! You will definitely like it <<less

It was really a good read, I really liked the story and how MC personality progressed, And the ending actually kinda made me cry. But I loved ML and MC bittersweet love.

I recommend reading it to the readers who like reading system novels.

This is one of most heartwarming and heartfelt BL novels I've read. And I read a lot... From Quickly Wears the Face of the Devil to ones like Heroic Death System and cute ones like Rebirth of the Good Child... This novel fits right into those novels that have seriously touched my heart.

... more>>

The main character uses his intelligence and clear eyes to hold onto thick thighs in every world, mainly the male lead. The interactions between them can be fluffy, sometimes fiery, sometimes cute & funny, but all of them charming in its own way that easily touches one's heart.



First arc: Adopted son vs Brother

Second arc: Guard vs Devil sect Leader

3rd arc: Concubine's son/ scholar vs Crown Prince

4rth arc: Second generation rich young master vs Powerful clan's young master/ leader of game co.

5th arc: White Fluffy Demon dog vs Emperor

6th arc: End of the world's long lost young master vs Underworld Boss

7th arc: A small country's prince /Third Prince's male pet vs Emperor's brother

8th arc: Love crazy fan/ Imperial Star's university student vs Famous Admiral

Last arc: Immortal Fairy vs Devil God King


I totally regret I didn't find this novel sooner but at the same time I'm very glad I didn't throw this one away. I loved reading it so much. No antsy intrigues that usually delays relationships, just overflowing love & the drama that preludes it. <<less

Sigh... such a cute love story! I read this in MTL so there might be a lot of misconceptions but the main idea can be understood. The beginning is similar to FOD although the MC seems much more indifferent as he's called "heartless". The MC and ML might not be perfect but they're lovable. I loved most of the arcs and but I felt that the first 2 arcs were better in terms of buildup. As the MC slowly realizes his feelings, their interactions become too mushy! :p but that's... more>> enjoyable in it's own way.

The MC is a strong one. He is not as OP as the one in FOD. He can get the plot points and can cultivate according to the manuals he received in one of the arcs. But he doesn't have an OP system that gives him success in every field but he has his brain to workout the details and occasional cheats.

The ML is similar to the ML of FOD, extremely doting and OP. But his background becomes a bit clear within the first 3 arcs.

The plot itself is quite good, but not as varied as FOD. There are less arcs and the arcs in the later half focus more on exploring the identity of the MC & ML.

The MC & ML's background is truly bittersweet and the ending seemed quite satisfactory. Now I just hope that the translation will restart quickly and we'll get to enjoy this beautiful love story! ^_^

P.S. Sorry for all the comparisons with FOD. I'm a great fan and no system/transmigration novel can be compared to it! Ever! :p <<less

A really amazing read, this is the first transmigration world hopping book that I've loved since FOD and I've read quite a few of them. The relationship between the ML and MC is amazing, so devoted, while it is a little dub-con in the first arc, the relationship quickly changes (No continuously bending a shou who does not want to be bent, in fact the shou is happy to chase his man).

I really got hooked when the novel started revealing the story behind the world hopping plot, so sweet, so... more>> wonderful. It's really a novel that I loved the further I read, at the beginning I thought it was just like all the other world hopping novels that couldn't compare to FOD.

Recommend 250%. <<less

First time MTLing an entire novel. Strangely, I don't feel like I've lost any brain cells.

I think what made me really hooked on to this novel is how short the arcs are. They take up about 10-12 chapters or even less, which is a blessing after reading novels with 30-40 chapters per arc. This novel doesn't like to beat around the bush with fluffy details or character monologues.

Even so, I don't feel like the love between the MC and the ML was forced. The author didn't describe their relationship... more>> with a lot of romantic words, but still managed to convey an obsessive love between the two characters that defies logic.


I mean, in the first three worlds at least the love wasn't instant and the MC had to work hard, but in the later worlds, the MC just looks at the ML and they're instantly flirting and kissing. I guess the love accumulates in each world, but I still enjoy the process of falling in love more.


It's a good read with a happy ending, I recommend it. <<less

The translator's done a really great job capturing the essence of the story while changing quite a few idioms to better fit the English version. 10/10 translation

I've only read up to chapter 42 so far (27 translated by Peony Novel TL and the rest MLT) but I loved the MC's relationships with the *cough* various MLs *cough*. I also found it very refreshing that the author keeps the side-characters and world-building to a minimum & doesn't let the story get bogged down with unnecessary details but ymmv.

Wow, what a ride~! To be able to read this novel (especially with several martial-arts-world-with-immortal) using MTL, I have braced myself for the impact, but it was readable to my surprise!

Anyhow, yes, this novel is quite similar to QWFOD as mention in most review, and although the title is "hold to my man", most of the main problem is solved by MC, he did hold ML's big, fat thigh but not that much, similar to MC in QWFOD.

There are several arcs in this, like the immortal world, game world, interstellar... more>> world, normal world, wuxia world, and apocalypse world. It worth to read, give it a shot. <<less

I liked it!!!

But there is something that it's a little bit to mysterious and when someone impatiant like me reading it that person cannot take it and read spoilers😥

But still I liked it very much!

PS: Even if I say so it doesn't have much mystery it just MC's origins

The story feels lackluster. The description excited me, but once I started reading, it was average at best. There's no dramatic plot twists and it felt like a chore reading this. I do like the fact that the arcs were original, hence the two stars.

Some element is similar with QWTFOTD, BUT NOT SO MUCH. Any story can't be exactly the same with the other, the experience it gave also different. Its not even from the same author... So read at your own risk

Some points to note:

  1. MC is heartless and selfish. This is the important point, the base of the MC act and thoughts of earlier arcs. You will found him blame the victim aka protagonist in arc 2, that's because that guy made task-completing more difficult in MC's view. He doesn't care if protagonist is harassed or what. He just mind his own task. I think this will be changed as he learn about love and love the ML. This is the interesting part.
  2. Has some r*pe element, forced relationship.
  3. No system, but directly facing the... Master, aka someone who make him do task. But the master not always helping him, not like system. This quick transmigration without system is kinda fresh...
  4. Spoiler

    arc 2 the scenes in ML's car after runaway from NL's house and scenes after that is kinda weird, idk how to describe it, but it seems off.

One of the few MTL that didn't burn brain cells. On the whole, it's a great read, especially if you were craving some FOD-ish novel. My only complaint is there's not too many worlds before we get to the main storyline. I needed more vinegar tank action from the ML.

It's a happy ending (for some) story. No NSFW scenes (cries). One of the stories that I could reread.

I completely fell in love with this novel! Among all the multiple world stories I've read, I have to say this is my favorite. I really liked how the final arc tied together the whole story. It has all the makings of a great love story! There's the smart, cute, shameless MC, sexy, possessive ML, mysterious, tragic past, HE ending and loads of fluff in between. This is one novel that I'd definitely read again, and I hate rereading!

I think, other than QWFOTD, this story hooked me the most.

I rarely read QT novel because it tends to be too long and too repetitive. And I easily got bored. But with this novel, every arc is simple but fulfilling. It's great.

The part I like the most about this book is because I can see how our MC changed step by step from being an unfeeling puppet into a more passionate an sensitive man after meeting our ML.

... more>>

The love story between the former 'Yin Baigu' and Ye Cang too.. It's soooo heartbreaking but also more apt. We can also see, why, in each of their view, they fall in love with the other.


The translation team is working hard, I love you guys sooo much. Thank you for your effort! <<less

This novel is like the story line of king's game and Need to Propose to Seven Men What to Do!

Both MC and ML came from higher level words.

... more>> Gu Bai (mc) died and is on the verge of disappearing without giving a change of reincarnation, then he met ml. ML gave MC a chance to live by completing missions in different worlds.

The author simplified every arc. Every arc is very short which is kinda disappointing because some arc is really good.

Like the zombie arc. It was arc was supper meng and it is also one of the turning point of the story. This arc is where the crisis for both MC and ML rise. That's why it was full of potential. However the author just oversimplified the story and just focus on the main point.

The last world also. It was very straight forward and was focused on the hints he left so that he will win in the end.

Well, over all it was good and it was HE.

Also o realize that he didn't just travel between world but also time. Hahaha

Worth recommending!!! <<less

Not bad, but there's some problematic stuff that's common in some BL novels. If you're desensitized to those issues, the story won't be bad. It's not the deepest story though. Read it for some quick enjoyment/feels.
