He had run over so hurriedly he tripped over his own feet, displaying an undignified sight. It made her smile thinking how s*upid this person was. She had completely used and taken advantage of him from the day he forced her to marry him. Yet despite all the abuse she heaped on him, he still wanted to save her.

She opened her eyes again only to find it was the day before their wedding. That devious scoundrel… to make her his wife through underhanded methods… The memory of it still left a bad taste in her mouth.

She was going to grab this second chance and live it up! Extort all debts owed to her! Buff herself up and shine like a diamond!

But how was she to know that the husband she once hated was actually really loyal and gentle, soft and easy, and so incredibly sweet and delicious to eat! The shutters that blinded her eyes in the previous life were cast aside. She realized she didn’t know how to cherish the good things in life. So in this new one she was going to make sure to pamper and spoil the hell out of that husband of hers.

I love the male lead, he's fluffy and adorable but extremely loyal. Although where his loyalty comes from confuses me, as well as how scummy the FL was originally annoys me, this is still a really good read, I love it!

This is sweet, sad, revenge, fluffy rebirth female dynasty novel. I love how MC learn to love ML and spoiled on him. Love the way MC trying to become better loyal wife for ML and good daughter for mother. I crying every chapters whenever MC flashback about ML trying everything to become better person for MC, how MC abuse him on past life. How she crying and feel regret the way she abondoned ML in cold palace.

After rebirth, she learning to become overprotect wife who spoiled on ml. She practices... more>> martial art, she become ambitious to protect her family and use past life knowledge to revenge on green tea bit*h friend ambitious princess and slag first husband who betray MC.

I like male lead, he is my fav character, he is so shy, honest, innocent, and adorable like little sheep and MC is like hungry big wolf😂. He has unrequited love for MC. He fall in love with MC when MC save him from bandits that was sent by his greedy bit*h aunt who want ML wealthy and money.

Highly Recommend😍, plus this is my favorite rebirth novel. It's one on one novel, MC is loyal to ml. She get ride her first white lotus slag husband. She wholeheartedly love ML and loyal to him. <<less

It is a nice story of revenge, but I still don't know why she got to live his life again. MC under no circumstances a good person, however, author gives us a very brief enjoyable story. The ending is a bit rushed and you still have some questions, but all big plots get resolved in a satisfactory manner.

Don't have any expectations about gender swap. It doesn't make sense, the author literally only changed how she names them. Women of this story has a complete male body.

MC and ML is also... more>> a cute couple, there is not much damsel in distress moments that makes you cringe. Tye love of MC developed slowly but surely, apart from MC other characters didn't develop well, I think it was too short for it. <<less

It's honestly a super average revenge story. Maybe a little below average since it's crazy unrealistic how a completely unsalvageable idiot somehow becomes a super genius just by being reborn and reading a few books. Then again, that happens often in this kind of novel, doesn't it?

What I really don't understand about this novel is the gender swap thing- I get the feeling it was thrown in to make the story a bit more unique, but it just confuses me with its uselessness. In this story, not only are the... more>> women described as "handsome" and "powerful" with their martial arts in contrast to the weaker and more effeminate men, men are the ones who have periods and give birth. So then what the hell is the point? It's essentially any other straight rebirth revenge story but you basically flip flop all the "he"s and "she"s. It's not just not helpful, it's counterproductive since it builds your expectations for something new and interesting only to let you be disappointed with a subpar story. It's really not terrible, though, so if you adore the rebirth and revenge genre and have finished reading all of the others on novelupdates then this is worth checking out. <<less

Finished mtl-ing. Although things happening were not over the top revenge type, but MC returns everything threw at him and ML with the same intensity. MC, even though had knowledge from previous life and did gain popularity and did ended up subject of legendary stories told in tea houses but, this angle was maintained extremely well. Unlike some other stories where one has to read pages upon page of praises and what nots' about how good MC is and how this and that, MC retained his human-ability and didn't ascend... more>> to the level of gods . It was very satisfying read. <<less

Read up to chapter 65 MTL and simply got bored. I'm ok with gender swap or even a Matriarchal society, however, the setup of this world really makes no sense. Women rule this world, which is fine. However, the men are effeminate humans that can give birth. So what is the point of this story? True the roles of both genders have completely swapped, but all the author did in this story was to reverse the gender but everything is exactly the same as a standard romance/revenge/political intrigue story. It... more>> actually makes no difference that the gender has been changed because if the author never pointed it out, it would just be another weak romantic rebirth for revenge story. The Female Lead acts completely like the standard cold Male Lead. And the Male Lead acts like the standard sob story weak bullied Female Lead.

If you look at the story as if the gender swap never happened, the story is truly poorly written. My only initial interest was the gender swap, but the world building of this premise is not very good. What's the point of a woman having breasts but not the physical ability to carry a child, or a male who can carry a child but is still physically male. Really.... what makes a male or a female. I got kind of frustrated with this weak explanation.

In addition, all the characters in the story weren't fleshed out very well. They all fit into the typical stereotypes of super strong manly Lead (female lead) and a heroine (male lead) who needs to be constantly saved. Bleh Best to try another story than this one. <<less

*The female and male dynamics are completely flipped in this story. Females are the heads of households, physically stronger than males, and essentially Amazonian women from mythology. Men are the fairer s*x and give birth. I picture it like tall, handsome, athletic girls with beautiful, thin, bishounens/flower boys. This dynamic might be hard for some people to understand, but the way the author tackles the rest of the plot well and the writing is great.

I like how this story is about redemption and it's not over the top in its... more>> revenge episodes. The main character is a piece of garbage human being and has two husbands. The first being your typical cold, distant beauty and the second being a cute, ditzy cinnamon roll. She and her entire family are framed for treason and executed in the first life due to 1st husband planting evidence and framing them. 2nd husband runs to her execution screaming that he wants to be killed along side her. She realizes at the end that she was an abusive d*ck to her second husband and completely fell for 1st husband's trap. She promises that if she gets a second chance, she would definitely treat her 2nd husband better and become a better person. It's a story about how she learns from her prior mistakes, changes her life around, and tries to be better.


She was absolutely terrible and a downright villain to her 2nd husband in the previous life. Negligent, emotionally, and physically abusive. She just sat around, wasted resources, and didn't know how to cope with anything. I wanted to punch her. After her rebirth, she gets flashbacks of how poorly she treated the people in her life and feels immense guilt and disgust at her own actions. She gets her sh*t together and becomes serious to avoid her past mistakes. Instead of being a waste of space, she becomes a top rank scholar and solves issues of the Empire. She treats the 2nd husband significantly better and promises that she will completely devote herself to him. She takes care of him and protects him from the scheming of others. She isn't too over the top with her revenge schemes (feeding 1st husband food he can't tolerate so he gets the runs), like in other novels where it is complete overkill.

The main lead Chechun is freaking adorable (and sometimes annoyingly dense). He's been in love with the main character for years due to encountering her in their early teens. She saved his butt from getting kidnapped accidentally. He was spoiled, sheltered, and chubby, making everyone think he was a waste of space, including himself. He has an epic cute bonding moment with the main character as they share their insecurities with each other and he falls in love with her. He promises that he'll become the type of guy she likes, slender, smart, and graceful. He's really dense and fails to pick up on cues, but he is adept at finance and business. His devotion to the main character borderlines worship, but he's one of the very few people who has seen her good side and believes in her.


I really liked this novel. It's refreshing to actually see and feel the main character grow as a person. Other revenge novels' characterization fall incredibly flat, with very undynamic main characters. It's not a perfect novel, but is definitely worth reading. <<less

First the negative:

The story is a little jarring because of the reverse gender roles, which is only done in a superficial way. That is to say the masculine is still masculine and the feminine is still feminine. There's nothing revolutionary, the gender tags are just swapped. Literally that's it. It could have been more meaningful if there were genuine gender role reversals. As it is, it just leaves me a little annoyed at having to correct the gender norms in my head as I read and translate.

The positives:

That's... more>> the only down side to the story though, everything else is very nicely done. It's got:

    • Great pacing
    • Fun characters that are fleshed out (so far).
    • Fantastic imagery and mood setting. (My favorite aspect of the story in fact, super easy to reread.)
    • The MC is pretty cool, the kind that isn't crazy and bombastic.
    • And very importantly: the author isn't ham fisted.
For anyone at odds with the translation, such as the names of the characters, I definitely recommend reading the notes. It will go a long way in clarifying things and putting everything in context. I'm reading as I translate so I won't rate this yet as I'm not that far along, but so far it's an enjoyable read. Am looking forward to reading more. <<less

Loving this novel. The reverse gender roles r awesome! The males even get pregnant here

Especially loving the ML xD One of the best ML ever! Usually these types of lovable, sweet, warm, devoted, intelligent characters r forced to b 2nd ML (& the tr*sh douchebags become ML) but in this novel he's actually the ML! Makes one so happy to read about him x MC LOL

Also really envious of MC having picked up such a man ~sighs~ I really want one of my own xD

The MC was originally s*upid &... more>> shallow but the novel starts around her rebirth so she's now more intelligent & wise. Anotherwords, mc's now a worthy protag for us to read. Can't wait to c how she saves her man & her family while faceslapping all those scheming tr*sh that wants to ruin her 2nd life as well. Loving how the culprits were tr*sh from the beginning so it's more comfortable to see MC wheeling them in for punishment! <<less

I can't. Gender role reversal theme isn't my thing. AT ALL.

Tried hard to love this due to its nature of sweetness n heart warming n all, but the moment the author make the male lead pregnant, im done.

I think, this is just a piece which produced from a yaoi/BL author under the disguise of heterosxual novel.

There is an interesting dynamic with the gender reversal though I think the writer could have gone into more depth with how that would affect the world.

The plot is both heartbreaking (rage inducing) and adorable

This is my favorite matriarch revenge rebirth novel. Very interesting and intrigued reverse role novel. I like ML most, he is perfect, loyal and adorable who love MC much, had unrequited love for her. MC didn't cherish him at first life, In second life, she cherish him, protected and doted on him. I like MC too, she became decent and perfect wife. Love their sweet and adorable interact most😍

Honestly, I'm disappointed with reverse roles presentation. It's the same old patriarchal setup: willful tyrant and sweet wallflower; just they s*x is now swapped. Not much matriarchy in my opinion.

Thanks translator for the job, the text is good, it's just the story not up to my tastes.

Well this story is interesting until the ML had his moon (menstruation). Starting from there I'm having hard time to picture ML as a man with d*** only as a weak flower with p**** and whenever ML and MC having romantic scenes, I feel I'm reading Yuri Genre. =_=

Except this everything else is really good.

  • Actually, as the translator said for the first parts you would like this novel if you were new to this kind of genre. However, I've read many of these before and they got boring.
  • The genders are literally reversed.

    The ML is the one that gets pregnant and is pregnant at the start.

  • I would have liked it if it was just normal roles and Male MC because I like revenge and regret but for a male to feel it.

Fluffy! Bloodthirsty revenge story that has lots of fluffy moments. We have an awesome boss lady, my favorite type who learns from her mistakes, and a dedicated ML, who works damn hard for her love. It’s my favorite type of pairing.

however, I wept many bitter tears too. First because of the mistreatment FL gave ML and how ML just stayed in love and loyal regardless! Secondly, because I was waiting for a happier ending for ShuMo, which I never got.

heads up the spoiler focuses mainly of ShuMo.

... more>>

While I understand why ShuMo got the ending he did, left cold and alone in the world of the current timeline and killed by his lover, while he was pregnant with the b*tch’s kid no less, in the original. I fell so in love with him. If I could, I would dive into this book and become the sarcastic friend in the disastrous friendship who also vied for Shu Mo’s love, but had to leave the city for some reason only to come back and sweep him off his feet in the current time line. In the original, I’d like to be the friend who didn’t make it back in time and so helped with the effort to kill the bit*h before disappearing again never to find true love. BECAUSE SHU MO IS MY TRUE LOVE! I’d be mean and rude and light his fighting spirit again! I’d tease him and relish his possessive side. I’d gift him with anklets and proclaim how our souls would be bound together so I’d never leave him! I just want to cuddle my little two faced kitten!

I'm reading this through the translation version so I would have to wait for the translator to translate everything.

This story is actually pretty okay after you ignore all the mistake the translator made as well as some weird things in the story. Like for example how the translator actually translates the name. For example, Tao Hua becomes Love Affair. Another example would be the female and the male in this story seem to have their roles reverse. Like how the male would get pregnant and the female seems to be... more>> the house head. Once you ignore all of that and focus on the storyline, the story doesn't seem that bad. In fact, after you get used to it, I think it would a really good novel to read. <<less
