This hasn't been updated in a while, so I decided to try google translate; I found that this novel is pretty good and its a little different from chestnut's previous novels.

This novel from what get from translate is a little more mature instead of being fluffy but I can say its enjoyable just like Chestnut's other novels. It focuses on the ML lead pursuing a dream he had once thrown away for the sake of his family, a complication with his family and how the female lead helps him throughout... more>> his journey.

The female lead is anti-social until she meets the ML (this female lead is very assertive, you could say the roles are somewhat switched). She runs her own shop and is a successful woman.

The male lead is incredibly shy but knows what he wants (though he doubts himself once in a while but overcomes it very quickly). As the title implies this guy works as a takeaway guy but of course there is more to him.

I will mention that get together quite fast and its surprising (it will catch you off guard) and for those who find it a little unbelievable/unrealistic, treat it as love at first sight (I'm sure you'll understand once you read the novel whether they decide to translate this or you use google)

I hope someone will continue to translate this (Sadly I don't know an ounce of Chinese) because there are some lines in this novel I feel are quite powerful, even more so if properly translated. Oh and I don't really understand the rating on this novel, don't let is discourage anyone who is interested in reading this especially if you're someone interesting in translating (this is my first review sorry if its wordy or all over the place, I'm just writing my honest thoughts) <<less

I'm a little biased as I've translated a couple of other Chestnut novels (but not this one! :D). So it goes without saying that I almost always like her work. True, they're usually not that deep, but they're unfailingly sweet, entertaining, quirky, and funny.

Slowly Falling For Changkong is possibly my favourite installment of the Truly Precious Universe so far. Like another reviewer said, it has a slightly more mature tint... I guess I would describe it as having more of a josei feel compared to the others.

I'd say that the... more>> thing I like most about it is that Xu Lian, the FL, takes the lead in this romance. She's such a breath of fresh air after all those blushing, "the next day her waist hurt so much she couldn't get out of bed" heroines! Shy around boys? Not Xu Lian! Xu Lian is the Julius Caesar of cute romance heroines - she came, she saw, she conquered, she buys her own condoms.

Meanwhile, Xiang Changkong is a thoughtful, gentle, sweetheart of a soul. He's ridiculously smart, so I guess the author had to make him special somehow, but he's not some unrealistic, idealistic CEO that one can't ever hope to meet. He's just a nice, cute, guy off the street, and we all hopefully know at least one.

Finally, cheers to the translator! I'm really enjoying their work so far. Thank you for your hard work! :3 <<less

:) I love this story. :) It is super sweet, endearing and unique.
This story for me is the best there is for two reasons:

  1. The ML is the passive and the protagonist is the active one because she is basically constantly looking for him, although he also does not lag behind.
Besides that the protagonist is such a cute character and I love him so much.

  1. The other reason is that finally not ideal men like CEOs but in this one the boy is the one who doesn't have a stable job. So that makes me want to know how it is overcome.
You will not regret reading this story because this is like a breath of new history where we see a safe and beautiful protagonist at least when it comes to... more>> love.


In this you can find the characters with which one can identify even a little.
You have to read this until the end.

gOOd reading. :) <<less

this isn't surprising but yes here we have another high quality novel from Chestnut!! I can confidently say that i've read almost all of her works (note almost cause although I'm confident, I'm forgetful) and this is one of her best work. Sadly, I don't understand why this novel didn't hit as big as her other novels :/

but then I realized that this novel really broke the stereotypical asian leading characters. So maybe that's one of the reason. However I do hope more novels with this type of leading characters... more>> will appear in the asian community. All my asian girls come and rise ladies, what is docile? What is obedient? Are those edible? Hee hee

tFL is an independent, sexy and confident woman who is sort of an anti-social but not really. She likes to shut herself in and doesn't like to get involved with other people because she can't connect with them. But she has a pleasant personality so she's not all "cold" or anything like that.

the ML (ah my favourite character after our amazing FL) is a shy, calm and collected young man. At first I thought he was younger than FL cause he gives off a young adult feel but turns out they're the same age lol. I like this type of ML- considerate, loving, caring (not a chauvinist either huhu plz I hope my future husband will at least have one of these qualities).


my boy do be delivery boy on streets, beast on sheets doe hehe


these two characters fit each other like a mold and I just wanna say, can they adopt me please.

even the side characters are nicely written and my heart really goes out to second ML who is FL's long time friend (and the only friend she's ever had) it's such a pity that he spent almost a decade trying to move her heart, but they're just not meant to be. I really hope he will have his own deserved happy ending.

therefore, 5/5 for plotline and 5/5 for translator. Totally satisfied~ ^O^/ <<less

It is the MTL-er here! I've completed the series after binge-reading it, and excluding some side stories that aren't of interest to me, and side character stuff in the main story, I've found that this was quite a fluffy, light-hearted story! Though there were some plot points, and I did shed a few tears, it was overall sweet, and I was quite happy to see the leads interaction and relationship! It was nice!

I love this one so much! Im a Chestnut fan, but this one is a notch above the others in a few ways... 1) its even more lyrical and descriptive, beautifully written in all its nuances (have to really praise the translator too well done :) 2) the FL and ML are really not usual at all... much more mature, complex and well developed. I love them both but the ML is outstanding. Everyone will “slowly fall” for him. 3) The storyline is fluffy but more josei as remarked... more>> by another reviewer. Chestnut is growing up. Best of all her stories, cant wait to read the rest. <<less

This is a nice modern romance. A little bit of smexiness. I got a nose bleed coincidentally during a hot scene lel. I like the pace of this so far with the MC being very confidant and smart. She makes it very clear what she wants and that is so refreshing. Enjoyable <3

This is one of my all time favourite Chinese romance stories. I love FL, she is strong, independent and sexy badass without coming off as a bit*h which is very common in CN. And I also love our ML, he is vulnerable, shy (our FL took care of it for him), and a very caring man who puts his family first at the cost of his dreams. I won’t go into too much detail but read it you won’t retreat it!

Loved the MC ❤️ she is strong, indipendent, warm-hearted as well as rational person.

There are many things I loved about this book one thing that I found different from other cn novels is that their sexual relationship which was not forced I especially liked how the ML respected the MC and it was her who took the initiative most of the time.

My favourite Ban Li Zi's story!

Despite having maiden ML and aggressive FL character (somehow their role is kinda reversed), but this is very josei-ish, mature romance with deep and relatable storyline....

I just read a random chapter, and I decided to follow this novel, After reading throguh the latest chapter, this novel needs to get STAR!!!!!

Totally, the independent MC, cold, with understanding parents, self confidence, not weak and shallow minded.

ML is not a CEO, or a man with money and power. ML is not the overbearing CEO type!! He's shy, gentle, kind, strong, can cook, willing to let go his dream for his family but strive to get it back again.

The translation is very good. The story itself is wonderful, the characters are lovely and the flow of the story is warm and very sweet. I love the background story of the male lead, and the strong character of the female lead, quite unusual. Will probably MTL it, very curious of the male lead's future.
