FL is a very sweet kind lady. When she went back in time, she thinks everything thoughtfully and finally took a step forward in their relationship. They lived happily ever after. There's no pro revenge like other second chance stories.

As the title says, FL took a step forward in their relationship. She became more considerate which made the ML think she might like him a little but his low self esteem due to his past prevents him from being confident. He ended up finding that confidence and confessed to her.... more>> About how they met when she was just 3yrs old. I think the little revenge it has is towards ML's family.

they ended up having twin boys and a girl towards the end. Also ML from present and past ended up switching the day past ML was going to divorce FL. It was funny and cute. Past ML makes your heart break. He was really happy seeing his love giving him children but he knows it's just a dream. FL was shocked when she finds him very weird. Acting like day of their wedding. They switched but she talks to him and tells him what happened since the very beginning. Past ML went back to his timeline the day he was planning to divorce FL. Past FL also met present ML. So past ML ended up confessing and also bringing the pain he's been carrying. So past FL and ML finally lived happily ever afterrr.



I reccomend it yesss <<less

Okay, so I saw a lot of low-star reviews saying "why couldn't the ML just communicate?" "why couldn't the ML just confess??"

Just some short answers here:

  1. The Shen Xi of the original timeline did, in fact, originally feel relieved that the ML wasn't around. She did not want to be married to him and got upset (in their first year of marriage) when she thought of the future. She didn't give the ML courage of any sort, to pursue her or to confess.
  2. The ML had a crippling inferiority complex regarding her. He grew up an abandoned child and had to sift through garbage for a living. Later, the Su family only took him back because they needed his liver. Compare this childhood, to Shen Xi, who from young got all the good things in life, and belonged to the upper-upper-class. A 'beggar' is marrying a 'princess'. The ML thinks that he doesn't deserve her, that he's already done enough by forcing her to marry him--he can't bear to do anything else.

Okay, I think the reason I loved this novel so much was because I'm really tired of the overbearing ML trope.

Really, really tired.

Extremely tired.

... more>> I've read so much of borderline yandere and straight-up yandere MLs that I'm not sure what romance actually is anymore. I think every woman in China wants to be dominated and controlled by an extremely handsome man whose handsomeness cannot be described in a single chapter. Sorry if that sounds misogynistic, it's just what I get from all these novels.

Back to the point, this story actually has normal romance. Of course, it's still dramatic and gets you teary-eyed because they have such huge misunderstandings about each other (you should be ready for that though, since it's in the synopsis) and you'll be frustrated and wish for them to just get together. HOWEVER, all new readers should be very happy to know that as of the current translated chapters, we're past all the sad stuff! Now it's a new era of happiness and maybe a little drama here and there, before it ends, at chapter 52, not including extras. I'm super thankful for the translator for translating a novel that actually gives me sweet doting feels instead of wtf-is-going-on-seriously-no-wait-SERIOUSLY-please-stop feels. You are the best, Xefielle. Mwah! &Lt;3 <<less

I feel like the ML is kinda meh. Like, why won't he communicate???

Does he hope that the FL will just magically understand his thoughts process??

Although that's exactly what happen in this novel. It takes FL reliving her life to built this relationship, while ML just goes along with the ride.

It makes me wonder why Su Hang didn't tell Shen Xi that he loves her for a long time..


He didn't even confess even they've been married for 5 years.. Hmmm ?If he didn't die, maybe Shen Xi won't know about his love at all.. He even gave up having his beloved dog at their house because of his wife.. ?

What a good hubby.. I want a hubby like that toooo?

I finished this book in one day. This is the second book that I read by this author (same TL) and I love the sweetness between the MC and ML. The misunderstandings of the past were smoothed away. There is no angst, no drawn out drama, only sweet fluff.

Guys if you haven't read this story yet pleaseeeeeee GIVE IT A CHANCE! This is not typical transmigration story, this is not innocent love story and definitely not a fluffy story. But when you read this you will laugh, you will cry and you will smile proudly of our MC and ML. MC and ML both are not a hateful person. Despite the preview, don't jump to the conclusion and assumed MC is a bad person who full of regret. She probably the kindest person in this story. When I... more>> read this, I feel like want to give thousand of hug to ML, I want to cry for him and I want to protect him. I think I found one of my favorite writer. I definitely goint to reread this and remember this story for a long time. The lines definitely beautiful! It full of devotion and sincerity. Long story short, please give this story a chance. And just small reminder, you're going to feel a little confused at the few final chapter but no worry, just keep reading until the end then you will get it. The plot twist definitely the sweetest thing ever! Also MTL is also easier to read. <<less

You'd think getting ballsdeep inside your crush would lessen the unwillingness to make a move

LOL... no. (´_ゝ`)

Great translation but I couldnt get past the ML. I was mulling over it, trying to pinpoint why exactly his behavior was so offputting, because it wasnt that he was overly s*upid or selfish or anxious or insecure per se-I've enjoyed characters who were like that before. But finally I have it-it's because he emotionally immature, which is really the heart of why he was acting in such a bewildering and frustrating... more>> manner.

FL pretty much has to carry the whole relationship forward on her own, nurturing him like a mom/therapist so that he could finally learn to express himself like an adult. The disparity in their maturity made it seem like I was watching an estranged mother and son interact. And it was cute and wholesome in that sense. But as lovers it was a bit weird. The josei tag and marriage theme had me fooled into thinking it was gonna be a love story between 2 adults.

I get that childhood trauma can cut off emotional development and I wouldn't have minded it if the ML was actively trying to grow on his own volition. Instead, if it weren't for FL's intervention, he would've been happy to passively stay in his comfort zone without regard to who he was hurting, and that didn't make for a compelling or sympathetic character imo. I just felt real bad for the FL, since the burden was always on her to fix stuff that wasn't hers to fix to begin with. <<less

This story is below average at its best. Overall it's quite dry and loveless. I'm giving it 1, 5 stars because I've definitely read worse stories.

Our couple here has no chemistry. There is absolutely non of it. You'll assume that the relationship gonna get better but it'll only leave you disappointed. Their development made me convinced that FL doesn't love him at all, she gets annoyed or angry from his tiny miny actions, disregards his feelings when he shows them even a little, well, ML supposedly a confident businessman, acts... more>> like a shy dumb 3-year-old before her. Without a tiny hesitation, he apologizes, says it's his fault when in fact it isn't and FL uses him quite well. She threatens him with leaving him or being angry to make ML obey her words. She expects him to say I love you but doesn't consider saying it back.

I honestly love timid characters but the ML in this novel is not timid in a cute way, it's annoying as hell. FL's unlogical actions only makes him more fidgety, introverted too. After a while, she knows he has inferiority problems before her and her actions makes the situation worse and worser. Basic human communication is a concept on another planet I guess...

As I'm writing these I get more irritated. I've read until chapter 40 then skimmed the rest to see if the relationship develops a little. It wasn't worth it. Even the main story ends with the word: "Shen Xi (FL) pushed Su Hang away and looked towards the..." -.- Girl, we know he's worthless but can you stop pushing your husband away????? <<less

This is too cute. It's very refreshing. I don't know how it can be cute and painfully wistful at the same time. I love the ML. I love the FL. I love the side characters. I could die from diabetes and buried in sugar right now and I won't regret it one bit.

I'm truly, truly surprised by the development of the side character. It got one of the best that I've seen in a fluff novel.

just binge-read this novel till the end, and it was worthy losing some sleep over this story????? I love the ML, and the way he ‘scared and panicky’ with the MC just makes me rolling in the bed laughing in the middle of the night????????? Honestly you guys should try read this gems, at first I was just casually read it and I got hooked after a few chapters. The MC is not op, as well as the ml. They both have flaws, which makes it bittersweet and funny.

Okay, I'm done lying to myself.

I don't know why, but I really don't like this. Not only this, I don't like any of Grumpy Crab's work.

There's nothing inherently wrong with this novel. The writing's good, the relationship's healthy and it's overall a nice novel.

... more>> But there's something in this novel that makes me cringe, that makes my soul scream. I feel like I'm torturing myself by continuing to read it.

I think it's the way Grumpy Crab writes relationships that make me go ugh.

I get into a novel seeing the high ratings and good reviews. Halfway into the novel, the feeling of disappointment gets bigger and bigger. And then I see that the author is Grumpy Crab.

I force myself to smile and like this novel but that feeling of meh never goes away.

Anyway, you might like it, I don't. Adios. <<less

I love this story so much. The plot is actually quite simple but the author did a good job portraying MC and ML's struggle in their marriage because of simple misunderstanding and lack of communication. What made it worse was both MC and ML were a reserved person so they both waited for each other to take the first action.

... more>>

ML and MC in the last life:

ML secretly fell in love with MC for years but didn't dare to tell her because he thought she didn't like him. MC actually didn't hate ML but she felt bitter because ML was in love with another girl (she didn't know it was her all along) so she could only protected her heart by acting distance. They didn't manage to resolve their misunderstanding till ML's death.

MC and ML in the current life:

MC managed to tear down the wall in ML's heart by trying to slowly communicate with him. They manage to be a real couple and also had a few kids. It's happily ever after.


Btw, I also love the extra.


ML from the last life and the current life swapped bodies and experienced the different life. ML from the current life managed to know what will happen when he never confessed his love towards MC while ML from the last life also managed to know how blissful his life after he confessed his feeling to MC. When he came back to his body, ML from the last life mustered a courage to confess his love properly. I hope MC and ML in the last life could make it this time and I also hope the current MC didn't forget to tell ML from the last life about his plane crash accident so he could avoid it.

Disclaimer: I'm not the translator... it's just that we have the same alias.... ;_;

I love this so much!!!!!!! Grumpy Crab's works never fail to seize me. It's very well written, and also the epilogue!!!!!!!!!!! The author really gave both universe's MCs justice ;___;

It's so fluffy and sweet, with no vicious love rivals nor petty schemes. The conflicts are all about misunderstandings, SO COUPLE!!!!!!!!! PLEASE COMMUNICATE!

Because there's no second chance such as this story ;_;

I'm gonna rate this 5 stars because I really like the story and the leads.

Actually for this kind of story, you shouldn't question why he won't communicate properly his feelings for her, or why she was oblivious.. Cause if they follow your ideas, we won't have much twists and turns and the plot will be boring. Not everyone can express their feelings openly. Even fictional characters need to have different personalities okay. They can't all be perfect, smart, strong, brave, etc.

If he confessed in their 1st life or if she... more>> knew, then it'll be over in chapter 1. No reincarnation. No redo of things. No second chances.

The author is an author for a reason. Following your logic, we won't have much to read. A reason why we are readers, not authors. <<less

One of the rare hetro books I’ve read. It had a good story and the couple was well matched.

I only gave it a shot as I’m a sucker for transmigration and it truly was a good worthy read.

It’s nice to see the couple getting mature in thier relationship together as time passes.

I wasn't sure if I should read this based from the summary of the novel, but I am really curious about the story as it has high ratings. It's a good thing, I read it! Sheesh!!!! ML is soooooo precious! I wanted to have a man like him in my life. And also, it is really important to have a good communication in your relationship. It saves you from many sleepless nights, misunderstandings and pain. Read this novel! Definitely worth the stars! :) Also, this is a rebirth novel. Just... more>> so you're not confused like me.

ML is indeed emotional constipated in regards to FL and his feelings towards her, but not in any other situation. It's quite realistic considering that he doesn't believe he deserves her and/or he thinks he is pulling her down and making her unhappy. The whole problem in their relationship stems from misunderstandings, but although we say conversation is key, the reality is that it's easier said than done, especially considering their circumstances. The rebirth of FL gave her the second chance to amend this problem in their relationship right from... more>> the start, and the result is that we get to see many sweet moments of ML trying to accommodate FL. I really respect how the author shows that the failure of a relationship, or at least theirs, is not one-sided. That is, to some extent, the FL is to blame too for making assumptions without clarifying anything, or making any effort. Overall, this novel is just really sweet and touching story about FL fixing all the missed opportunities in their past life. <<less

I sobbed through the whole novel, I guess I'm a bit emotional lol. Since the description I was already lowkey tearing up. Ugh, this is good. I had never thought of going back on time in novels like this before. But since the FL kept comparing both lives and discovering the reasons for his behavior, her 1st life just felt... distressing, for both of them. Communication is really, really important in a relationship. The extras were great too, they were worth it, it answered my worries lol. This wasn't pure... more>> fluff though, at some point I took a break to read a lighter novel because thinking about their 1st life was just sad. Maybe I'm just too emotional lol, others could find this a nice fluffy light read but I'm used to read tr*shy dog blood lol. Ah, I could write an essay about the thoughts this novel left me. <<less

Jeez, I don't usually write reviews but this was just so amazing that I couldn't not write anything for this.

The thing is both the MC and ML are kinda introverted and to top that off the ML has inferiority complex so obviously there was a lot of miscommunication between them. But still I liked how there was gradual development between them. It was so fluffy and adorable but still somehow felt more realistic than some other stuff I read. The ending was nice too.... more>>

Both versions of MC end up happy. It gave me a good feeling.


Overall it was a nice read. If you are looking for a light fluffy read don't rob yourself of this gem. But as the tag suggests ML has a bit of inferiority complex so if it's not your cup of tea then I won't suggest it to you. But it was totally worth my time. <<less
