Short, sweet and mostly inoffensive. Can't really dock the plot's ridiculousness when that's the point in the first place and even then it's handled really well for comedic effect.

Short, sweet, and cute. A little bit of spiciness, but not anything heavy. It's a very short story, so it doesn't allow much for the characters or background to be fleshed out, which left me wanting more. But still a satisfying quick read.

There was no adultery tag when I first started reading this, but the translator mentions it before the prologue and it drove me nuts wondering where the adultery was. But turns out the leads have fiance's, it's unclear if they actually are in a relationship with their intended or if this is an arranged marriage thing, but technically it is adultery.

There's not much plot, just a bullied maid finding herself having an affair with a horny beast who strangely enough hasn't lost control and penetrated her yet. The MC makes assumptions with no real basis, and she's easily led by the ML. I don't know if I should feel bad for her or not.

But what really takes me away from the story is the translator's notes that keep jerking me out of the story, and that the ML comes off as horny and nothing else. I literally don't know anything about his personality except he really really likes s*x and has the self-restraint not to go too far despite his constant horniness.

On the bright side, there is a female friendship introduced in the current chapter, always nice to see.

It's a nice and fluffy story story, I think.

... more>>

The story is about a stupid commoner lower rank maid apprentice that can easily manipulate and a horny dog commander of a knight.

You will find their first interaction iirritated because of the stupidity of MC. Like allowing the senior maid to bully her and listening to them that she used a seductive lingerie in front of a scary commander while saying 'give me your compassion (?) '. She's too stupid thinking a hungry wolf like ML will listen to her knowing what she wears and says and let escape a free. She's too naive about men, tsk.

She's way too easy to manipulate and every now and then will present herself infront of a f*ck horny hungry wolf.

The interesting part is the POV of ML, he was a possessive maniac wolf and hilariously funny, but he really fell inlove with her 'cos she has both beauty and body as well as she's not afraid of him.

Anyways, they really got married in the end and has a son


This story will get your interest if you also like smut with cute (i think) story... it's a good story if you have no choice in mind xD

Anyway, thanks to translator, he/she tranlated this story really fast and I like his/her comments in every chance he/she can get xD <<less

I especially love ML's pov, he's so funny and cute!! (❁´▽`❁) 4.5 stars for translator's work and its quality. 3.5 star for romance development. FL was wishy-washy about their social status, but ML breaks through them and bravely charge ahead. Rather fast paced! 4 star for characters. The story were nicely detailed on every characters involved, very straightforward, story with good pace. Other than slow and meek FL, maybe that's what her character for. Nevertheless there's the strong domineering ML so I have no complain. (Haha)

It's the first time I've seen a FL admit to having such a weak willed character in a story. It's enlightening to have such a heroine be self knowledgeable about their irritating weakness. Overall, the plot is weak like most of these stories, but it holds up ok for such a short story. I like the translations, but one of the greatest irritations from this translator is the constant and distracting editorial comments. It's not just this story, but any of the stories that are translated by them. It really... more>> disrupts the flow of reading. <<less

The smut is pretty ok, the FL is so brainless it hurts. The ML POV chapters were like a breath of fresh air... If I were rating on story alone only 3 stars... BUT the translators comments are the BEST! 5 stars for the translator saving the day!

A light smutty novel... perfect for a 2-hour break when you have nothing to do and just want to read the story to relax.

Nothing special but not horrible either, as I said a sweet, comic, and short story.

The best part was the MC's pov.... and of course the random comments of the author 😆

I give this 5☆ for Lionel's pov. In 2 chapters he has more personality than the FL.

The FL is easily led by the nose by people around her. This was made into a joke that she can't say no to people and has low level of restrain.

If you want a fluffy short story, then this would be a good recommendation. It only has a bit of drama, but not too much where you are at the point of committing murder. The ML is quite straightforward. He doesn't beat around the bush, and he can be quite sly.

If you’re looking for something quick, light-hearted and funny, while also extremely cringey, eye-roll inducing and gag-worthy, then hey try this quickie ;)

Jokes aside, it’s not all bad. The plot moves pretty fast but it’s enough to kind of give the characters a little bit of life and not just a simple r18 novel. However, as I said above, it is seriously cringey. Props to the translator Zuben for the laughs. Makes the whole read worth it.

Main character is soooo dry. She’s like a puppet. Driven along by everyone... more>> else. Also far too focused on “omg our societal classes are too different so I can’t marry you”, like girl, I’d marry him in a heartbeat, screw society (basically the ML tho lol). I like the male lead; a bit stalkerish but still cute. There are plot holes everywhere regarding some of the background stuff, nothing too major and gets straight to the point. Do read til the end for the ML’s POV; so damn hilarious 😂 not even joking. Makes the whole story better.

Anyway, it’s a basic and fluffy story, some really flowery smut and overall, not too dramatic. <<less

It's a very short and light novel. You obviously can't take it very seriously because then you start seeing many of the plot holes and the many things the author just skips over or quickly resolves to get the story moving.

Actually, if you take it seriously, the ML's POV chapters could actually make it very dark - or more comedic, depends on how you take it.

Overall, it's a quick and funny read, the comments from the translator makes it even more fun, wouldn't really go back to it but it... more>> does it's job. <<less

I think this is an excellent parody.

The FL knows that she literally has no personality. The ML goes for her cuteness, and he is also manipulative enough to concoct a plan to make her marry him.

The story by itself is kind of lackluster. Multiple characters should have been more fleshed out. The subtle comedy was good.

... more>> The smut is really good. Like, quite erot*c and excellent. The translation notes add up a good humor to this story, in addition the ML pov extras.

On the whole, this story is not quite good by itself. But the translation is worth a read, especially for those with a taste for the erotic.

This is not Mango approved. <<less
