When Ye Qiao received the award for best actress, they asked her about her husband during the interview.
Q: When was the first time that you noticed him?
A: In an old rental apartment. The couple next door was doing special exercises and I happened to overhear it.
Q: When did you officially meet him?
A: I was bitten by his dog and got 6 rabies shots for it.
Q: Why him?

Maybe because she had been lonely and helpless in the past.

She had been hidden herself in the darkness. The only ray of sunlight in her life was from him

A story about Ye Qianxi’s cousin from The Most Majestic You, though the story is mostly unrelated. This story was published before The Most Majestic You and is somewhat more serious

Initially I came to read the novel looking for some decent/ good smut. Unfortunately, this novel doesn't have any so far. Not even a small trace of it and I think it should just be romance and mature, while removing the 'smut' genre. Also, there wasn't any written review on this, so I gave it my thoughts. Not a superb review at all.

As for the story, I think it's alright. It's not super amazing, but it's not horrendous too. The story begins after the break up with her BF and... more>> she meets her neighbor who is the ML.

So far their interactions have just been a probing game of seeing what the other person is like. They do have s*x but it's skimmed over. I think it's a more slow read with less face slapping and any action but it's not to the point where nothing exciting or blood pumping happens. I also think it's refreshing to see an MC not caught on getting revenge on a man who broke up with her for another, she's more calm in this manner and more accepting of the situation. It is just that at times, what the author wrote makes it seem as if she's still stuck up on it, nevertheless, her interactions with the ML overrides it. It's just that so far, I would like to see more interactions between the two on a more personal level then what is already being displayed.

If I had to rate it honestly, it would be a 3.5 but the translation is good and understandable, it's just that the format of the website is annoying and instead of the words being completely put down onto the next line, it cuts off instead at random parts of the word, making it hard to read.

But you should definitely give this book a chance. <<less

Give it a change

I don't understand why is this novel so unseen. It's just great. It is not about ML and FL that get in fire and s** over and over. It is not about a white lotus and a CEO president, or a completely independent woman that put ML in her foot.

This is a great story about a woman that have traumas, a FL which had lover amd intern conflicts that are not solved in 5 chapters. Is about an ML that do not love her at first, but... more>> is able to catch small moments of her. This is a slow narrative, but at the same time flows with a great flux.

It is sad. But it is a sad blasé. It involves you like a snake, you get into. I recommend to read slowly and carefully, to enjoy the cativant moments.

I know that my avaliation maybe do not reflect everything someone would like to know, but I truly tried to pass what I felt. :) <<less

BORING... The expository gives off the bleak feeling of a funeral service.

The plot was nice but reading it was not. Perhaps it was because the descriptions and narrative felt somewhat lacking. Perhaps it was because the MC had a negative, bored, indifferent, uninterested or passively resentful attitude every few lines. But it made it hard to get excited about the novel or the next chapter or be immersed in the work.

I could not shake off the lonely feeling, very similar to the one you get in an empty house on... more>> a quiet morning with grey skies. <<less

I think this is not bad. I don't know why the rating is a bit low. I prefer this rather than "The Most Majestic You". If TMMY could be classified as light and sweet novel, I couldn't say the same about this novel. It's more complex and also darker than TMMY. There are also not many sweet moments between MC and ML because of their intertwine past. But they slowly overcome their guilty feeling and try to accept their past.

... more>>

It's just that I feel bad about Zhao Mo. While other villain characters are still alive (although they are not in good condition), why must Zhao Mo kills her self in the end? She already turned into a new leaf and started to prepare her marriage but all is destroyed by n**e photo scandal. She's used by others to destroy MC's reputation because she's misleaded. I just hope she is given a second chance after clearing MC's name but author decides to kill her instead.

I'm so conflicted with this book. It felt like it tried to be deep but missed the mark so many times. Ye Qiao's mental state was never fully addressed neither was her reluctance to make their relationship official. A lot of issues was just skimmed through. It wasn't a bad read but it wasn't as good as the other reviews made it seem.

It is great. I am actually surprised that I loved this. I thought the depressing tone at he beginning would not be too appealing for me and eventually, will drop the novel. But the characters are well rounded, they feel so real with their flaws. The story pacing is slow unlike the other stories with the same theme which made it, to me, very engaging.

I feel like I just experienced a rollercoaster of emotions. I also thought it was only a light novel but I didn't think that it would have a heavy and dark tone. But I still like it. Though there's no fluff but them being together and finally clearing the complicated past made it sweeter for me.

RReally really like this one.

This was on my list of books to read after reading The Most Majestic You. Thank you to the translators for completing this novel.

I find that the female lead is down to earth even though she is in the entertainment circle. She comes off as a real person and not just someone in a book. She has her ups and downs, heart break and forgiveness. It seems like the male lead is there just to support her.

The story is not draggy, in some ways, it is a bit abrupt.... more>> Not sure whether it is the translation or the raw novel itself.

There are a few scenes that made me cry and some that made me laugh. I love the supporting character Qianxi so I am going to re-read The most majestic you. <<less

The beginning of the story is quite boring and bland. It was really hard for me to persevere reading this, but glad to push myself into finishing the story. The storyline itself was not that strong even the plot seem somewhat unmoving. The mystery behind the story, the climax, and how it was resolved was not much entertaining. But what I like about the story is the characters. FL and ML were not the typical marysue and overbearing president. They are unique especially our FL. I love how she has... more>> a strong and calm personality. I love how she's not dependent on others when resolving her issues. I love the fact that she's mature but sometimes childish. <<less
