Elegance and refinement are Ning You’s instincts.

He doesn’t like rude people, and furthermore can’t bear barbaric behavior.

High maintenance 'swan type' CEO gets lost in the woods and is rescued by the most rugged and borderline savage forest ranger. Chaos ensues when such swan can not go back to civilization and his La Mer creams immediately but has to stay several days in a place that doesn't even have a working toilet.

A fun read with a great message about how the word "civilization" has gotten distorted in our lives and how sometimes environmental protection doesn't really equals to sustainable use of resources. 空菊, The same author of... more>> Restricted Area, really knows how to write devilishly charming ML.

As usual, the author does not do explicit smut but the smexy scenes analogies are brilliant and from this moment on every time I see an equestrian competition and horseback riding techniques in the future I will think of Savage Addiction. <<less

After reading Restricted Area (one of my favorites), I decided to read all of the author's work. And once again the author manages to achieve a perfect match between MC and ML. The "smutty" (not smut) scenes are hilarious! This novel was also enjoyable to read!

Just like in Restricted Area, also in this novel the ML is really hot!!

The translator did a good job translating this novel. I really like how honest and clear the MC is with his feelings as well as their natural attraction with each other. The author managed to make things natural despite the short timeframe. This is a good novel on the level of 4.4-4.5. I'm also shocked by the low rating.

This deserves a higher rating!

Yes, the MC may seem irritating at first because he is so picky but he’s not really unreasonable. When you get to know him more, you’ll like him like I did!

The development between the MC and ML is so natural that it felt like everything was fallinb into place.

Although I would have loved it if the ML wasn’t ... more>>

rich like other ML’s. I would have liked to see an alternate story of ML truly being just a forest ranger (no huge inheritance or something) because I feel like that kind of story would have a different appeal


Anyhoooo I’m so glad I decided to read this novel (someone said author-san is the same author as Restricted Area so I just had to give this novel a chance despite the low rating) <<less

The author is great with their writing.

I don't know why but MC's character makes me uncomfortable, he is like people I wouldn't want to associate in real life. He is not bad but just very ignorant. He thinks he is an independent person but I'm in truth he is just a child in a man's body, cute isn't really a word for that. The ML isn't so smart since he didn't consider gradually changing the company from within before than forcing it without considering the employees like his brother does. And what right does he have to claim the head position when he haven't done anything for the company and he is even the younger brother. Tbh paperless is possible as you can see nowadays but that is inconsiderate to older costumers or employees who isn't tech savvy and when your internet access sucks. Maybe I am too realistic.

I don't understand the low rating, this is so well written. I am still waiting for more translated chapters to give final rating but so far it's a 5 for me. It's funny, cute, a little sexy, the story is well written translation is very good. The MC is cute, a beauty used to the city life and he saw "civilization" as necessity but I wouldn't call him spoiled as he slowly adapts, the process is funny as hell though. The ML so far reserved towards this stranger that entered... more>> his life but also a little indulgent and patient with the MC. There is also the budding attraction on both sides and it's kind a hot.. <<less

Not bad. Infact I was worrying because the book was being too good. So it was at first about MC being rescued by ML after getting lost in a forest ML volunteered in as a forest ranger.

I liked the direction the book was taking. The fresh concept of the plot... Storyline etc. Characters well written... All that.

Turns out my worries were right though. After the couple got together it just became boring for me. With the MC getting angry at every little thing and always nagging and always running away... more>> or stuff. ML also became childish in a way and it changed so much from the characters I knew originally. Character development is good of course. But in this case it made me lose interest in the book. Yeah. <<less

Short and sweet but quite a complete story. Although at the start the main characters aren't all that easy to like (due to some of their small behaviours), after they got to know each other and act more naturally, it became easier to like them.

Recommended if you are looking for something short but cute and funny.

Pretty good story. It was very cute and unexpectedly relateable. Even though I don't particularly like high-maintenance/princess-syndrome MCs, the MC is pretty hilarious and was written with a fairly mature outlook.

The relationship developmen was done very well. It was somewhat realistic in that the MC and ML didn't immediately fall in love at first sight or something; they had little frictions from living in the same space for the first time. I love that living out in the wild wasn't super romanticized; it had pros and cons (but the outdoor... more>> shower was great).

Translations was pretty good overall, a few weird spots (edited MTL) where the names weren't changed correctly (like Li Chao -> Li Zhao), and ("baba" = poop; Li Mu changes "la shi" (take a shit) to "la baba" = take a poo (aka, the kiddy way) bc Ning You hates the word "shit" 😂). <<less

This is what you called a mature masterpiece. I don't know wether it is because of the translation or what, but the wording just tickle you on the right spot. It's stable and just so right. I don't know what to say, but I hope you all can understand what I want to say. Also, shootout for the translation. They (I don't know their gender) did an amazing job.

A lovely short read. So glad I gave it a chance. I really liked how their relationship developed. It was written in a show don't tell way which I absolutely adored. Super refreshing. Especially in chinese BL where readers mostly get an almost omniscient view of MC's thoughts lol

My only gripe is that I really wished this had explicit smut haha the s*xual tension was delicious and the mature scenes were written in figures of speech lol

Really, really cute! Haughty shou and his "savage" gong. I died of secondhand embarrassment badly but it was just so funny and adorable I had to read it all in one go. This is the best kind of opposites attract 😂

Close to a new favorite. I admit it, I have a weakness for the rough seme + princess uke combo, sue me. Our MC was ignorant to an almost excessive extent at the beginning, was getting ridiculous. But later on as he opens up to the ML and starts peeking out from his extremely thick bubble, he quickly improves and becomes much more grounded. The MC and ML fall in love FAST, but it's super cute how attached they are to each other. Overall just an extremely adorable story, wish... more>> it was longer.

The translation could have been better, I have a feeling that some key words were often mistranslated. E.g. Sometimes "like" would be used when something like "want" would have made more sense. <<less
