I am traumatized by the MF lead.. I think this is cute, but I think there should be a warning for people that can't stand personalities that are mean/selfish to people but always get away with it by being felt by the people around them as a "deep down someone who is a good person." Nevertheless, this type of personality can get away with treating decent people selfishly and inconsiderately like so. Personally, I can't stand personalities like this in real life, so the MF lead just annoys me more... more>> than anything. So, if this doesn't bother you, I think this story could be cute for you. <<less

Male lead: hot, smart and forbearing

Female lead: cute, shameless and brazen

Put the two together and I'm sure there will be humorous shenanigans. Started a little dry but it'll probably pick up.

Story 5/5, TL 4/5

Only halfway into the story but it's already panning out to be a great coming-of-age romcom! Truly light hearted and fun read with the ability to cause this old lady (me) to inevitably reminisce about my own childhood. What a bittersweet feeling...

I really like FL, she's very lovable and charming in her own way. She has the ML wrapped around her fingers in the past and present. Haha I look forward to the day ML 'tame' her. FL's loyal sidekicks/buddies are so funny too! I ship the... more>> two together!

I'm excited for the release of the drama adaption— "Skate into Love' too! It's gonna be good! <<less

Really lovable characters. The plot is fun and engaging. I am not sure who the ML is and it makes me anticipate future chapters even more. Translator does a great job. Really worth your time.

Firstly, great job by the translator on translating some of the subtle nuances of the story. It is hard as some of the chinese slang and word usage can be very difficult to translate into english. Excellent job keeping the soul of the story and humor as close to the original as possible.

I highly recommend this book for a these two reasons.

a) The plotline is coherent. No sudden changes in character behaviours, no plot holes big enough to sink the Titanic through. It is cohesive and funny. The MC is... more>> funny, assertive, independent and most of all true to herself. No sudden wallflowerness or 180 degree change of character. The ML is the perfect foil for the MC. Both of them makes the story sing. The side characters are funny as well. MC's two lackeys are hilarious and I love ML's bro from his ice hockey squad. The cast of characters really shines through in this story and the humor is amazing.

b) The translation is very very well done. This is not an easy novel to translate as there are quite a lot of current slang and words. Xing has done and is doing a very wonderful job translating the novel and keeping it as true as possible to the original. Reading Xing's translation is a joy. Xing managed to maintain the humor and the feel of the plotline. Kudos to a job well done !!

Highly recommended <<less

Uh, this was bomb!

So interesting and I really enjoyed reading this novel. There's many hilarious interaction between characters, and even if the sport description sometimes rather too detailed, it was good. No regret coming to the raws one to read MTL hahaha

The translation team did a great job and moreover, the author was fantastic as well.

What I loved most about it was :

    • The story did not seemed forced, the flow continued and there wasn't a single chapter that I was bored of.
    • Mostly, when reading romance novels, when it reaches a certain peak, like when the main characters confesses to e/o, it gets utterly boring, but this story isn't like that at all.
    • Not only the main characters but the side characters are just AMAZING with different personalities with their own quirkiness as well as their flaws.
    • Different emotions - I got to laugh, sympathise, squeal, cry, fangirl... this novel was an absolute bliss

love that we have a side story for MC's lacky and one of her roommates [ I forgot the name]


What I would love to see is a side story for Yu Yan as well. [ I'm still in chapter 112, so, I pray that there is (crosses fingers) ]

so, in short 100/100

I will keep this pretty short. Overall, I really enjoyed this novel. It is actually one of the better romance novels I have read in the last year.

The MC is really a little bully (especially as a kid), but I interpreted it mostly as showing her affection the wrong way. Although slightly off-putting, her shameless and brazen behavior is mostly really funny. In particularly her bickering and banter with the ML are hilarious. I constantly found myself smirking.

Oh and I really also want to commend the translator for doing... more>> an amazing job ! Thank you very much for the work you put in and for bringing us this gem ! <<less

I honestly didn't expect this novel to be good. It's so funny my stomach hurts from too much laughing.

And this kind of story is not the type of novel that you would abandon once you find something better because it's really good.

MC and ML interactions are funny and sweet. MC and her friends were crazy in a funny way.

MC was spoiled, bully, and some readers may dislike her because of that. But once you understand her more, you would know that there's more to her that you would like. ML... more>> appeared to be cold but he's a good person. I honestly don't like him much because of what he did to MC when they graduated in primary. But that changed when he did nice things to MC. <<less

This novel is comical. With the right dose of flufiness, add 100% shamelessness combined with pure witty banters from characters, this is a hands down pure hidden gem. I would really like to thank the translator for her hard work, sharing this wonderful novel to us. And our precious author who made this, thumbs up to you.

Normally I binge read these type of stories. However, there were multiple times I had to stop reading for a while because I needed to stop laughing. Cute, and very very funny.

This book is soooo funny and sweet! I smile when I read reviews that say they burst out laughing while reading a book but I am on a Chapter 17 and had to stop to write a review because I keep bursting out in laughter or smiles. Read this - it will totally make your day. And the translation is great too!

This is the funniest, funniest, funniest C-novel that I've ever read! Hahahaha. Every chapter just made me laugh out loud. Can't fathom where the FL gets her confidence--almost similar to the level of Nian Junting in Slowly Growing Fond of You, Mr. Nian. The FL's wild imagination is a talent too. Read this and I guarantee that you'll laugh your heart out.

But..... this ain't perfect too. It made light of juvenile bullying, which is something that should not be made light of. The ML (the one who the FL kept... more>> on bullying when they were kids) had psychological scars from that bullying, but the issue was swept under the rug.

Anyway, no novel is perfect. But I still enjoyed this one A LOT. <<less

I like their childhood story and the game competiton the most. Specially the speed skating, even if im using MTL in reading, I can still feel the intensity of the game.

Love the interaction of the two leads and it's sometimes hilarious and sweer. Overall, the story is really good and to my liking.

Cant wait for the drama version.

I always had a soft spot with the story that following the journey from childhood to adult life of both MC and ML. It will started all innocent, then confusing to them and acceptance and maturity. Personally the beginning and middle of the plot was good to me, but after that it just go downhill.

I’m hoping this cnovel gets a lot of love! I love the author, translator and all the characters here. Everyone’s crazy in their own ways but no such things betraying, backstabbing and whatnot. Light and easy to read without heartache.

So far I personally am enjoying this novel. I find the main leads bickering cute and entertaining. It has a good romance storyline so far with a light comedy added to it.

I definitely will recommend this novel if you like modern youth novel, both leads knows each other since youth, bickering couple, light comedy, romance, tomboy/strong-headed female lead, and handsome/smart male lead.

I especially liked the beginning chapters and the parts of their childhood, the humor was brilliant. Good and strong MC. Tbh, found the story to be less amusing after the main CP got together. The MC's personality changed a bit sadly. Same to the ML. I miss their previous dynamic. Very good translation quality though, solid 10/10 to that.
