“Then why don’t I marry you!” Yu Dong suddenly proposed.

“You…” Xia Feng thought he had misheard.

“You see, you’re looking for someone to marry to ease your mother’s heart, and I also want to get married. We’re right in front of the doors to the Civil Affairs Bureau, and with all our papers too!” Yu Dong exclaimed while holding up her red household book.

“And the most important thing is that we just broke up with our exes. This is fate, ah!”

Right up until they left the Civil Affairs Bureau again, holding a newly registered red book, Xia Feng remained dazed still wondering, how did he end up getting married?

Did he just pick up a wife at the doors to the Civil Affairs Bureau?

What Xia Feng doesn’t know is that Yu Dong traveled back in time from 10 years in the future.

Now, having a second chance in life and able to secure a good husband, Yu Dong will live her life at full throttle and without regrets.

This is a rebirth story without revenge. If anything the vengeance was against loneliness. MC is a successful leftover woman who got reborn to the time when she's thrown away in marriage bureau. She met ML and reminded him from his past achievements. She decided she has had enough of loneliness. Both people were jilted and so why not hit it off. And so the fluffy sticky couple was born.

MC is a young rogue girl just out of University. She has a headstrong yet not naive personality. Cheeky, smart... more>> and direct. She's actively pursuing ML and when ML pursued her back she become shy but didn't back down. She's cheerful and enjoying life as it comes to her. Although her insecurities can be ooc but readers can relate alot with her.

ML is a maiden gentleman. He's a successful doctor. And author depicted the scenes wonderfully. As a doctor he's always busy but they both make sure to always keep communicating and keep each other in mind.

What makes this novel wonderful is that they rely on each other. When MC is sad ML is there to reassure her. And when ML is sad, MC is there for him. Most of the "antagonists" got redemption of some sort. MC didn't actively pursue a revenge to her ex bf (in fact she forgot him lmao) and the ex girlfriend of ML also given chance of redemption. Each characters have wonderful growth.

There are some loose ends but over all this novel is quite satisfying. No dog blood drama but still heartwarming and fluffy without being boring. I find myself laughing and crying to this story. Totally recommended. <<less

There are lots and lots of fluffy stories out there are are purely entertainment. The stories are full of honey and so ridiculously sappy (though sometimes they have a bit of contrived drama or misunderstandings to spice things up) that they represent an idealized, fantasy world.

This isn't one of them.

This story is filled to the brim with fluff, yet somehow still manages to ground itself in reality. The MC is a radio host at midnight; in between her own developing relationship, she still manages to exert such a positive influence... more>> on various strangers in her small corner of the world. From the midnight bus driver to a lost youth standing in what will one day be a roof garden, this story reminds us that there's nothing that's inevitable, nothing that's hopeless, and we all have more ability than we think we do.

I love the MC to pieces; she's truly a wonderful bold character who isn't afraid to take initiative to grasp her own happy ending. I love this author to pieces; she created such beautiful friendships and such a unique cast of characters; even making us care about people who appear for less than 2 paragraphs?!


The side characters are all fun and hilarious, including the exes. There's also a truly enviable friendship between the MC and her girl friends. The author is is clearly not teenager writing a shallow fantasy, which is ridiculously refreshing.


Translation is great! Speedy updates & humor is conveyed well. <<less

T_T the journey was soo short but it was wonderful. I love this story soo much. No much drama but the FL was awesome as she helped many people after her rebirth. Changing their course destiny to a better one.

I want to thank Slow Day for his/her wonderful translations. I should also thank google translated machine for the raws... but it feels umm.. weird. Most my thanks would be to the Author Mr Crab for his wonderful short fluffy story. ?

Plot setup: Yu Dong was a single, hardworking woman in her '30's. She was reborn as herself, 10 years in the past, on the day her boyfriend broke up with her just as they were getting married. Instead, she suggests marriage to another man, Xia Feng, (who she recognizes as a future famous doctor) who also got dumped at the same place.

Characters: Yu Dong is awesome. She has the deep emotional maturity of a wise woman who has worked and lived in the world. Yu Dong is straightforward, confident,... more>> optimistic, and talented, but never feels over-powered. In her new workplace, she inadvertently counsels people in need, and helps them turn around their lives in a some pretty fantastic ways. Her girl friends are also well developed and interesting. The ML Xia Feng is an uncomplicated, kind, decent doctor type.

What sets this novel above the rest: It's a rebirth in a modern society story that's done right. It's a short 61 chapter length, very little filler. The side characters are good. Yu Dong and Xia Feng are refreshingly mature and honest in their communication with each other, like real adults should be in a relationship. Yu Dong is such a great character, and I especially love her star moments when she is counselling others, and ends up helping so many lives. I rarely see this in c-romance novels.

I'd highly recommend this. <<less

It was a nice read but I was puzzled as to why this has an almost perfect rating (4.8 as of date). It was full of fluff but it was a bit boring towards the end.

What I liked:

  • Our MC's job; I love all the parts that were related to her radio show, I would've rated this a 5 if it had more. (Esp our Beauties and MrStrongs)
  • MC's friends; I'd say I actually like the dynamics of their relationship more than our main couple
  • Spoiler

    An An; I like her, it's good that she broke up with ML. ML isn't wrong for wanting a marriage life and An An isn't wrong for wanting to explore more (career-wise), it's just that if you look back, An An made a good decision. If she said yes that day, they would've been trapped in an unhappy marriage.


  • MCxML; I admit they were cute! And their relationship was smooth sailing but the way they fell in love was kind of lacking on how it was depicted. I remember our ML's friend questioned how deep their relationship is at the start and I'm on the same boat. Sure, they're married and is trying to fall in love but how were they deeply in love that quick when they barely talk to each other?
What I disliked

  • Spoiler

    10 years is a long time but our MC actually almost forgot her bestfriend that committed su*cide? That was really sad and weird.

  • Spoiler

    Transmigration: it was absurdly brushed off; you realize you went back to 10 years ago and you decided to get married to the first person you met? Sure ML has a nice future but really? Aren't you supposed to be at least weirded out with what's happening? It would've been more interesting if we eliminate transmigration and have her marry our ML in the correct timeline, a shotgun wedding would've made more sense since she's pressured by everyone.

Got no clue why it has such high rating... ok I get that it´s a nice change to read a novel about romance with no drama, revenge etc and just fluff. But to me it was just.. stand-offish. First off, why did MC get reborn? Not a clue. A lot of things the author doesn´t clarify or just skips over. It´s like the author just wanted a rebirth novel about "second chance in life" but there´s no explanation or depth to anything. The first 3 chapters were unbelievably stiff.

MC meets... more>> ML and decides to marry him-ok fine but ML agrees to it just like that? It´s as if someone came to you on the street handing you a key to a car and you buy it without a second thought. That´s what happened. After living with MC more than a month, ML still knows nothing about her, her background, family, past relationships etc. Nothing. And he asks nothing. It´s like reading about a character through a tv screen, but this one is five miles farther. That´s not how a mature relationship goes.

This is not spontaneous or romantic- the author wanted a crazy opening to her novel to capture the readers, the concept could´ve been amazing but the execution was horrible.

Secondly, the writing. Not really engaging or creative. The style of writing is like someone reading off a script. I suppose I´m quite harsh with my review but really, when you find a novel with 4.7 stars, you tend to have higher expectation, only to find a novel written by a 15 year old. <<less

Interesting plot and characters. I liked how the protagonist got married the day she met the male lead. She was like a contradiction between a mature lady and a student who just graduate. She has moments that she is a strong lady while at times a shy, naive lady when teased. I think this story is unique because the MC did not seek revenge on her ex-boyfriend but only remembers him then slaps him hard.

This story is relate-able to women who want to be love and have a husband to grow old with. It is hard to find gentlemen at this age that follows traditions because they are either taken, married, or too old for you.

I can't wait to find out if she is going to have a baby boy or girl. From the story, her in-laws thinks it's going to be a baby boy. I think that it might be a boy because her mother-in-law was quite accurate that the MC is pregnant.

The male lead made the right choice in breaking up with his ex because she put her career before him and rejected his marriage proposal 3 times. The male lead and MC are a match made in heaven. Overall, I love this story. I read all 59 chapters within 2 days. :D

Yu Dong is the most laid back, straight to the point FL I've ever read. What a refreshing scenery to be able to read about this type of I-know-what-I-want kind of female. And even the ML is not the usual cold, r*pey type of ML. Although their encounter was so abrupt, but the romance was not force as it gradually emerged during their marriage.

I really like how she pursue him and how she guides him into liking her. And her friendship with her friends is precious.

I really like their interactions and the romance is so fluffy. I like the fact that at the beginning they really are but housemates. Well Yu Dong was just trying to win MLs heart and ML was trying his best to adapt his wife's character. They were strangers and there was no love between them but tried their best to cultivate their feelings for one another because they agreed to enter a loveless marriage.

The only thing I'm disappointed about is that I really ship ML's friend with one of Yu... more>> Dong's friends however author gave us a troll story about it. Haha <<less

One of the best romance and slice of life novel that I've ever read!


  • MC is a strong 30 year old businesswoman who went back in time to her younger self and unlike most second-chance MCs who still act like a naïve idiot, this MC actually acts like her age. The MC is mature, knows exactly what she wants, and has a poisonous tongue for perfect verbal comebacks.
  • ML is the perfect hubby; kind, determined in love, passionate, considerate, and everything one can dream of. Unlike those MLs that are overly possessive, cold, aloof, facial paralysis, love to tease the MC, etc. This ML actually respects and cares about the MC's opinions and personal space.
  • Most of the side characters have great personality and is relatable. Their interactions with the MC and ML are hilarious and heartwarming.
  • HE

  • None! I enjoyed everything about the story and am very satisfied with the ending.
Overall, the novel is a fabulous slice of life novel as we follow the MC on her love journey and battle against conservative customs in China. There is a bit of drama, a bit of angst, and a bit of heartache, but worry not, there is always an overload of sweetness and fluff from our main couple, so all's well that end well~

What a charming romance story with the theme of second chance (for FL).

It reminds me alot of "A Slight Smile is Very Charming".

That kinda adult/mature love. There is no aggressive confrontation. Even the reluctant ex acted realistically. Some people who likes reading face slapping story may find this boring but I personally find their slice of life story of their love is very charming.

I love it when I read a romance story that both leads slowly but surely going forward with their growing love. Misunderstanding resolve quickly because both of... more>> them make an effort to actually communicate to find out what is wrong with him/her. Like I said "adult/mature love".

The FL has such commendable spirit. The ML at first is awkward but he is a steadfast person. The supporting characters add depth to their world/lives. Some of messages the FL conveyed carry deep meaning in life which is nice to read.

IMO, her actions and advices may seem to her as "another day in the office " but it gave a lasting impression to others (on the receiving end of it) and ultimately changed their life. That's why I like her spirit very much. <<less

A laid back novel that is not just a romance, but also a reflection on life. I looked forward to reading this every day as it left me feeling very positive or thoughtful after every chapter. I did get amped up after chapters about the delusional Female Antagonist!! A big thank you to the translator and author for taking us on a wonderful journey.

I am a little sad it’s concluding this soon, but it’s this feeling that things are ending where they began. Starting with a marriage and ending with... more>> a wedding (I’m not saying who’s!!). I’d recommend taking this slow rather than binging if you can. <<less

I always love reading strong independent FL and that's why I fall in love with YD! She's the depiction of roses with thorns. But with her a-bit-dense but lady killer husband, she's like a cassanova roping in a not-so-innocent girl xD It's kind of refreshing, in many ways:

1. FL chasing the ML

She actively trying to help and get close to him, also with his family. And I think that's also why XF can't help but fall in love with YD~

2. No bossy self-important CEO, welcome gentleman and indulging doctor?

3. The friendship between the three girls are worth envying! Go girls!

4. No devil scheme, no OP chara, just a simple reincarnation story about the FL who wanted a normal happy life with her ML. And that's really heartwarming?

Eventhough for me the reason for their marriage is really... Unrealistic and abrupt, how can you marry someone you just met without even a single question..

But I'm really thankful for the translator that has picking this up, thank you for sparing your time translating this amazing novel, fighting for all your works!?


I'm so jealous with all the reviewers who had completed this novel *hiccup*

If you want fluff, wholesomeness, and a hint of steam, this one's perfect for you. The fluff wasn't the only thing that won me over, but the short stories and small events that happen in-between makes me wish that humanity is as good as it was depicted in this story! At least more often than not anyway :)

Hmmm.... it's well written tho it somewhat really misses the mark. There are not only a few wobbly points, but the attitude surrounding the r*pe is very.... especially the whole bringing of parental love shitc into the terrible behavior of the mother, who kept pushing for her daughter to marry a rapist who looks down on her so much he doesn't even hide it, not to mention MC's parents and in the og timeline, MC's brother as well. The MC has a very defeated viewpoint of being unwed and almost... more>> 30, which isn't surprising given the circumstances. Glamorizing pregnancy was also a... choice. The way female ambition is looked down upon by the plot, and the very ugly message of 'for a relationship to be harmonious one of the partners has to mold themselves around the other' which, no. That's how you get an unequal relationship where one half carries more importance than the other. The overall story is more lifestyle than romance very mild and not much emotional turbulence. <<less

This book was amazing. Good MC and ML. I went and expected unnecessary drama, unrealistic misunderstandings and completely childish characters. I was wrong.

This was gold. The pacing was amazing, the characters were well written, relatable and overall cute read.

If you're looking for something sweet to read that makes you laugh or smile, go for it. You will not be disappointed.

Honestly, if you're in for the love story, this might be a so-so..?

What made this story a gem are the side characters and her listeners (she's initially a radio DJ).

... more>> This is the love story of both adults, REAL ADULTS, so it's straightforward. Both showed patience, maturity and steadiness. In fact, it's too steady that it bordered boring. But hey, adults already have too much in their plates okay, in life, in career etc so a little steady in love is perfect.

The little side stories are seriously what kept me reading, I hoped there's more! But I'm glad the author didn't prolong it too much either. <<less

Sweet sweet sweet!! The entire I read this story I was sighing at the sweetness, it makes me want to fall in love! My heart is healed! While the story was an MTL, it still got almost 400 five star ratings, is that enough to convince you it's a good story?

It's an optimistic story, and while there is both drama and minor realism you must understand it's 95% sugar and everything is more positive than negative. Both MC and ML are fantastic and the banter they have is utterly adorable.... more>> MC's is also no pushover, and quite feisty in a realistic way! For example

ML's old ex-gf tries to get in the way of them and while MC tr*shes her verbally, ML admits he wouldn't be able to see ex-gf as a normal friend and MC is upfront about her jealousy

. I also truly adore MC's friend group, they make up a group of three very tight girls who care for each other and it's super sweet.

plot wise, like I said it's an optimistic story and while MC's rebirth gives her OP negotiation skills (apparently), it's a pretty minor and she really only uses it t change certain events like

one of her best friends killing herself/save said best friend's child from abortion

. While there is drama and a minor love triangle, it's all fluff and sugar with a happy end. <<less
