“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, 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.

I'm really glad I found this one and read it~~

It may be so for me, but doesn't mean it would be for everyone. Why was I glad :

  • the fluffy romance was really good
  • the side characters have real background and own problems
  • the characters are breathing, you can totally see a drama while reading this with actor and all.
  • no useless drama
  • superb translation
If you're looking for theses points, be my guest and try this, you won't regret it :) some chapters will make you cry, some will make you think and moist would... more>> just leave you with a grin ;D

For most part, I liked it. It's a simple love story with very few hurdles. It could honestly make do without the rebirth part, but I guess that's how the FL was able to succeed in her new life and save her friendships. It's a very simple story that has little to do with revenge. The characters had a good balance, and no one was overpowered. It's not a revenge story, but more like a second chance story where the MC does everything she wasn't able to do or change... more>> her regrets. I still don't understand how or why MC was given a second chance though as that was never explained (like did she die or something?). Anyway, overall it was a good story except the extra side character wrap up chapters weren't as good. The last chapter was very wtf. <<less

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?!

Spoiler

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

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

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.

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

Pros:

  • 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
Cons:

  • 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~

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 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

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.

    [collapse]
So-so

  • 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 suicide? That was really sad and weird.

    [collapse]
  • 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.

Reincarnation setup with a random husband, but the plot and approach differ from the typical reincarnation novel in a creative and refreshing manner. 1: MC doesn't need to religiously adhere to her knowledge of her past life to succeed; in fact, she deliberately chooses a career that deviates from her previous success (!). There are hardly any 'aha' moments where the MC triumphs using past life memories other than knowing which assholes to avoid (two lousy men). 2: The ML does not have some invincible halo, such that the moment... more>> the MC decided to wed the ML, her life was set and the ML would come swooping in to every sticky situation to rescue her on a white horse.

These are advantageous deviations from the generic convention, because the characters have substance; they are three-dimensional, and not the flat archetypal protagonists of the reincarnation genre. One example: when MC brings ML back home, it is immediately obvious that she has not scripted the family interactions, because ML bumbles into every conceivable faux pas and MC has to clean up the mess (but doesn't!).

Another major advantage is the author's studied avoidance of needless drama. Not every flashpoint needs to be dragged out into tragic wailing. For example, we are told that ML does not know MC gets a job early on in the wee hours, and so he is left wondering why the MC is always missing at night. A lesser author would spin this into some melodramatic misunderstanding about MC's lascivious night life, but here the MC just explains her job. Another example: when the original fiance character returns, there's no melodramatic fight, there's no indecisive and annoying ML, and it's pretty much easily settled.

A concluding point: this novel really speaks to the young professionals. We have our own latent anxieties about marriage and settling down, we're ensconced in our early career-building stage, and sometimes we're just so tired that there is just no time for drama at home. You get a lot of that: scenes in the home at night that just seem to end abruptly, because there is nothing more, because everyone's an adult and mature and no longer in high school. The concerns are real, too: finding a right partner, figuring out our careers, staying close to the parents, sticking up for our friends who are now at different stages of family life (single? Married? Kids?). For everyone in your late 20s, this is definitely a worthwhile read (at one point, the author has the MC specifically mention the 22-30 age range, so I have no doubt that we are his target audience).

Final shoutout: the MC's job is really well-written. What I loved most were the little vignettes that came through the MC's radio program. I love how this novel manages to make the MC and ML very powerful characters even without the tired tropes of needing to praise their appearance or ability in bed to the skies every chapter. <<less

Help, I'm drowning in all the fluffly. This novel... so damn cute <3

I really liked the way she acted with the ML. At first, she doesn't really care about him, so she is a real rogue, teasing him all the time (like she said "this lady is on a dry for ten years!"). And the way he reacted to her teasing... hilarious! He's too cute. But then he starts to tease her and it's her turn to become a bunny.

On a side note, I loved the way the author made... more>> her act after rebirth. It felt realistic. She doesn't automatically recall every detail of her life from 10 years ago and also doesn't try to act like she's younger than her mental age. She thinks and act like a experienced 30 years old woman, uses everything that she learned in those 10 years to her advantage. The cellphone detail was also nice (at first, she automatically grab her phone to order some food by an app, then laments that phones aren't that modern yet). The fact that she doesn't remember the faces of some people it's also very realistic (hell, I don't remember the faces of people I met last year, imagine ten years ago).

Also, can I just say that the way she acted when she met her ex that dump her was bloody awesome?
Spoiler

She didn't even recognized the bastard at first! And when she did?? Slap the sh*t out of him then makes every woman in the place call him a scum! And lose his job

[collapse]

Those little encounters of hers are also great. It really makes you think that even a little act of yours can change someone's life, be it an act of kindness or not.

Ps.: That last side story... was the author on acid at the time??? Like, seriously? Don't get me wrong, it was interesting, but... seriously?? <<less

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

Well, a lot more feels involved than I thought there would be. I don't really agree with how she handles people on the radio as far as advice goes because there are already so many incidents where advice on a radio show was taken and things ended in a really bad way, but aside from that, I love it all. Quite a few scenes thus far where I'd tear up a bit, and a whole lot more scenes where I'd giggle to myself from how silly it is. Overall, this... more>> is a really lovely read.

Heh, this is some pretty sweet stuff. Not Diabetes Mellitus inducing, but close.

I'm liking it thus far, though the grammar could use a little more work it's not really hampering the story in a serious way.

Definitely going to recommend this for someone looking for a bit of sweet romance.

Spoiler

Some people don't seem to understand that when you reject something enough times, you lose it altogether. You don't avoid something until it goes away when it comes to love, you face it head on or it's out of reach before you know it. Trust and Love are two very special things, Love is built upon trust, if you can no longer trust who you love, then you end up rather not loving that person at all.

You have to read!!!!!

It's funny, romantic (but not really), and slow pace. Slow pace romance for a quick marriage, where two strangers just meet and try to make something work out.

There's no revenge plot, or those death flag everywhere, and scheming till the last chapters. It''s very relaxing to read.

I LOL at almost every chapters.

And, there's 3 couple in making too XD not one, not 2, but 3! and all circumstances are very....... romance novel for women.

For now, we just get 2 but very soon, we'll see them all.

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:

Spoiler

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!💜

Um... what to say? I don't really read many romance novels, at least not ones where the romance is the main focus or there isn't some twist to the story. I clicked chapter one, just to see what it was about real quick since the synopsis sounded interesting and my pizza rolls were in the oven. I fully intended to back out after quickly becoming disinterested, but... well, I just finished the whole thing in one sitting and it's 10 hours later.

I need y'all to understand, I'm one picky customer,... more>> and I WILL judge plot and characters harshly. Half the time, I end up hating or being bored by the leads, and the other 40% of the time I'll only feel like they're mildly entertaining. For the remaining 10%, I will genuinely love the characters, but when there's two leads, one's usually loved more than the other.

That said, I loved both Yu Dong and Xia Feng, and their budding relationship. They were fun to watch, and felt rather real to me. There wasn't any black bellied CEO pampering type of thing going on, nor was the male lead dominating and possessive, the type of ML I hate the most. At times, Xia Feng felt more like the heroine than his wife, but I quite liked how he was a sensible man (opening chapter already spoiled in the synopsis notwithstanding). Yu Dong was just the right amount of zany to compliment him, and I never got bored of her antics. The best friends were awesome, too. Actually, all of the side characters were
Spoiler

except XinXin's mother and wannabe husband. I really don't understand Chinese relationships, but I wanted Yu Dong to beat them both up so bad. At least have XinXin slap her mother. Lady was trying to marry her off to a complete scumbag, and drove her own daughter into a corner. Are you serious?

[collapse]

Anyway, I really loved this story, so I imagine people who actually like romance novels will be particularly fond of this one. Some say it's all too short, but it's about the size of three good-sized novels, and any more would likely just feel redundant and stretched out, so I'm quite happy with it not overstaying it's welcome and ending on a high note. I especially liked the bonus chapters

Spoiler

where, through the eyes of the child they have together, we see how things go for our leading couple. The very last bonus chapter, where XinXin once again meets the homeless man who saved her during her pregnancy and it turns out he was actually an alien threw me off. It felt like it came completely out of left field, since aliens weren't a part of the story at all until this final bonus chapter, but then I remembered that the whole plot revolved around Yu Dong time travelling for no apparent reason.

Now that I'm thinking of it, in that last chapter, it's revealed that the alien was there to study emotions in order to save his race, but he was unable to comprehend except for XinXin's involvement with him. In the previous timeline, however, XinXin committed suicide after being forced to marry the scumbag, so he would likely not have ever discovered emotions if not for Yu Dong's unintentional time travel and interference. It makes me wonder if the time travelling was caused by aliens in some way. That's a stretch, but it'd be cool if I'm right.
