The Demon King Always Thinks I’m Secretly In Love With Him

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Bai Yang is the youngest son of a rich family who grew up spoiled, unambitious and having no one expect anything from him. He doesn’t really mind this though, because he’s still able to live a simple and happy life.

One day, however, his older brother got into an accident and is now comatose. Bai Yang’s father now has to consider his youngest son to take over the family business. Unfortunately for him, Bai Yang is a weak, timid, and cowardly child. How can he ever succeed?

Wanting to change his son’s personality, the father has Bai Yang transmigrated into the world of Wild Wind, a very famous fantasy novel. Bai Yang’s father hopes the environment of that world will shape his son to be more arrogant and domineering, as a child of a wealthy scion family ought to be.

However, due to an error with the Main System, instead of transmigrating as the protagonist, Bai Yang ends up becoming a cannon fodder villain, Xie Zietian, from the Demon Realm! In order to safely and quickly return to his world, Bai Yang has to ensure that the protagonist, Zhou Ying, ascends to the heavens so his transmigration mission will be complete.

In order to sneak into the human realm and help Zhou Ying, Bai Yang comes up with a variety of excuses to the Demon King of Eternal Night, such as…

Bai Yang, in a dignified manner: “Your Majesty, that person might threaten the demon world. I went to the human world to kill him for you!” (Actually, I went there to meet the protagonist.)

Bai Yang, proclaiming his loyalty: “Your Majesty, hang in there. I will go to the human world to find the elixir for you!” (Actually, I went there to save the protagonist.)

Bai Yang, with an attitude of selfless dedication: “Your Majesty, I just want to go to the human world to further your great cause!” (Actually, I went there to see the protagonist.)

The Demon King’s face remained impassive but, in fact, the tips of his ears were red. He was thinking: I can’t believe he loves me so deeply…

Demon King: “Hmph! Seeing how clingy you are, I’ll accept your love. Tell me! Whatever you need, I’ll give it to you!”

Bai Yang: “****! Your Majesty, I don’t love you.”

Demon King: “No, you love me.”

The Demon King truly believed Bai Yang and he shared a deep mutual love until he discovered that Bai Yang was having an “affair” with a “wild human” …

I worried that it would be love triangle with the protagonist of the novel. But I was surprised by the increasing interactions between MC and ML. The misunderstanding between them was really funny and entertaining.

I really loved the beginning of this. It was hilarious! It was actually one of my most looked forward to stories to be updated. The characters were great, the plot was interesting, and I eagerly awaited seeing how our MC could get through the plot considering he was on perma-death mode. Then.. Chapter 70 happened. Mind the r*pe tag! Please, mind it. I went from loving the awkward tsundere Demon King to wanting him to have his thing torn off. This was extremely dubious consent with utter lack of kindness.... more>> Painful, abusive, uncaring. MC was in so much pain during and after! It was traumatizing! And it was played for laughs! So disgusting. ML plays an abuser perfectly. Doesn't actually care about his partner feeling good or even just not being in pain. Only tries to fawn over the MC after so he has a chance of getting in his pants again. And guess what- it happens just wo chapters later and an almost as traumatizing repeat also dub con to the extreme! And ML has the gall to not only not feel bad yet about causing so much pain but thinking the MC is just lying and "being shy" so why would the Demon King ever need to change his behavior! He's perfect the way he is! And reading reviews, it only gets worse. The reviews about this being funny are a lie. R*pe isn't funny, there is nothing to be happy about if you as a ML always make your partner bleed and don't care about making it better. Oh, it's fine to hit them because you'll give them flowers afterwards and just beat them worse next time. This isn't romance, its abuse. And it's not funny. Dropping this hard. What a disappointment. <<less

I think this novel is a really fun read!!! (I don't know why the bad ratings tho) and I laughed all the way through it, very VERY funny. The language and style the author used in this novel is definitely very charming and bubbly. Even though this book gives you a premise of nonsense comedy crack, but actually, the fun parts are carefully planned out and there's foreshadowing for later events. It's not some intense drama heavy plot twists, it's precisely planned but laid back funny adventure of how MC... more>> navigates through his life after his transmigration

I read it in chinese (very ahead of everyone else) so spoiler!

Spoiler

I did not expect at ALL, for the events happened in the later chapters. Usually with this kind of premises, the protagonists, MC, and ML will turn into a cringy awkward love triangle but no, this author, turns in into a romance comedy where MC and ML suddenly become fathers and adopt the protagonist instead. Thanks to whom? MC's oscar worthy acting and his ability to talk bullsh into reality, all to save himself. (To some point I kind of think MC is more like a villain that just messes with everyone)

Every time the author left a clue, a key item, a hint, I would guess what/when/how it's gonna be introduced later. I have this fixed tropey cliche thoughts in my mind. I thought I could guess the outcome of the plot because let's admit, authors use tropes a lot (and we kind of dig it). I thought the demon bug would be used to trick MC into dual cultivation, but no. I thought the fruit would be used to cure ML's condition, but no. I thought the pearl would cause chaos and angst, but no. I thought there would be a cringy love triangle, but no. Every single time, the author twist it so unexpectedly I was so weirded out but at the same time it makes sense and it's funny! It's not like mega plot twists of dramatic ending, it's like "haha bet you didn't see this joke coming". This is what keeps me reading and reading and keeping me excited for every new update.

It's actually not like how Trane reviewed it.

His dad did send him off to make him braver, but the MC agreed out of his own will, although persuaded-cough-scammed by his father.

And he was supposed to be the main character, but by a miscalculation in the system, became a cannon fodder.

... more>> It's not like his father sent him off to die, it was an accident.

And it's not a Yaoi setting at all (although it would soon be).

I actually think it has a logical start and it has a balance between sarcasm, humor, and seriousness. And the system is quite cute too.

I really don't know why there are so many low ratings for this story, have you even read it properly? Did they only read the first chapter and decide, "Meh."? Because, so far, I'm quite fascinated by the MC, and the plot to come.

So what I'm saying is: Give it a chance, don't judge it so early. It might actually be your type of story. <<less

I really liked the MC but I came to love ML more. He has no knowledge about love... And he has an enormous black hole in his head. What our MC can't say or tell, ML makes it up on his own. Especially when he suspected that MC loved him. Quite a logical and dramatical love story.

... more>>
Spoiler

ML thinks that since MC touched him, MC fell in love with ML. MC didn't touch any of the backyard people. Then, MC went out to solve the Protagonist, saved ML from going into demon by his magic, went off to get whatever was needed to save him and also got injuries, and finally he hastily ran back when he heard that he had a battle with Western Lord. And when ML heals MC in pool for the first time, ML rejects MC. MC (at first, denies then thinks that's perfect misunderstanding) gets heartbroken as ML leaves after rejecting him.

[collapse]

MC always trying to leave ML to help the Protagonist doesn't work much except at crucial times.

In the chapter 90, most laughing thing is...

Spoiler

Demon King (ML) : Why? Why do you want to maintain him so much? Is he so important?

Bo Yang (MC) : Of course he's important because he's my most important person.

Demon King (ML) : heavy rage, overflowing magic

Bo Yang (MC) : I have to say it - Zhou Ying is my son!

Deming King (ML) :...

Zhou Ying (Protagonist) :...???!

[collapse]

________________

Gyahh!!!!! Just read 91st, too hilarious!!!!

Father, son and father's lover...

Demon King (ML) : Lie!!!

Zhou Ying (Protagonist) : confused, doubts life, (prospective crush became father)

___________________

Just read 101...

Spoiler

MC needs to be killed by the Protagonist in order to go back to his world as well as to take ML along with him.

MC gives him a pill and he reaches robbery period. MC asks him to kill him. Zhou Ying denies. MC rolls on ground and cries. "Son: Dad, ground is dirty. Don't roll." "Father: No! You kill me!"

[collapse]

__________

I have completed this one and it's lovely. Although I find Zhou Ying's character a little disturbing at the few last paragraphs of main story. He's very pitiful also... he has to continue the the story cycle as the data. ML is very idiotic in real life - did everything that might offend MC. MC is very pitiful that he wasn't aware of ML's ideas on him in real world. ML was too deliberate in real world. Xiao Long is my fav.. A super cute system with a nice cute voice.

This novel definitely worth a read. <<less

I have to agree with @jl050503. The plot seems to be much more complex than what that other negative review has laid out. The MC is indeed now stuck playing an evil cannon fodder, but it was definitely not an intended situation.

What we've seen from the MC is interesting. As a younger son of a rich family, he's been used to being able to live as he pleased with the happy confidence that his older brother would inherit and take care of things. When... more>> he's unexpectedly thrown into the heir position, I sympathized. His father and the people around him want the kind of domineering character we see so often in Chinese novel MLs, but this guy's personality is not, and the father hates this so much that he's puts the MC to such extremes to try to force a personality change. I wonder if the novel will help address this, especially since the MC isn't playing the scenario's protag.

What's also a nice change is that, thus far, the MC and his system seem to be getting along! His system is legitimately helpful and, while the MC is bound to complete tasks and missions (now tied to the scum character he's playing), it's sympathetic and aims to support him! You don't see that very often. Of course, with starting off on such a wrong foot, I expect nothing the MC and his system plan will go as they intended.

As for the translation, I will say thus far it's been excellent. Few to no issues with spelling or grammar, nice flow, and easy and pleasant to read.

I love xianxia, and it looks like this novel will be full of some wonderful comedy and some hilarious misunderstandings as the MC and his system try to muddle through this mess. I'm especially looking forward to the Demon King's appearance, as in many of these kinds of transmigration stories, the ML is usually the world's protag.

I'm looking forward to see what happens next, and I hope others give it a shot. From the few chapters we have so far, it seems like it will be a fun ride. <<less

I can't handle it any longer, my god. Don't get me wrong, the writing seemed promising and the synopsis really made me interested, but I just couldn't handle how idiotic the MC is. Like the interactions between ML and MC are cute and funny but sometimes the MC just does things without using logic and gets himself punished by the system. I find it s*upid how he doesn't think some things through even after getting punished by the system so many times already.

I know this isn't entirely MC's fault, the... more>> story tries many times to tell us how he was spoiled rotten as a child by his dad and had turned into a good for nothing grown up. But, as someone who was said to have played many video games throughout his life, you would've expected him to have a better sense of intuition. But, then again, I understand that this isn't entirely his fault since the system is so strict with being OOC.

Another reason why I dislike the story is because of the system. Sorry, but I just can't handle system worlds where they prevent OOC so severely. Scum Villain Self Saving System was already my limit since the system anti-OOC didn't drag out for too long and didn't really force the MC to act in character and receive literal painful punishment if they acted OOC

Overall, the plot was actually quite interesting. The writing and the translations were great. The ML was really nice, I found it very refreshing how he he had a great sense of humour and was really playful with MC. I was actually genuinely interested in the plot and wanted to know more about what would happen but sadly I just don't have the patience and heart to handle stories like these. <<less

Great story I tell you. The characters are just pure gold. The MC really cracks me up especially his interaction with the system. Also usually, systems are there with you to go through thick and thin, but this one just does not (in a sense haha). When MC is faced with difficulties and ask system for help, He'll be like 'Sir this is your test, I cannot help you. You can do it bro' or when MC is about to die (or so the MC thinks) the system is like,... more>> "don't worry I'll send your will to your parents and brother, but before that, can ya give me rate of 5 before dying?' Lol. Really cracks me up.

Also the ML the way he imagines things is really hilarious (as we can see in the introduction haha)

Spoiler

So right at chap 40-41, the MC told that all of those are just misunderstanding. And the ML is like smile but really want to grind him to death haha. Then ML had to heal the MC (since MC save him) but since he was mad at MC he deliberately do it rough haha. After many days, the MC finally can't take it and told ML that to do it gently. So he did and he did it so good that the MC was unconsciously shouted "ah~" it was so sexy and hawt that even the system was silent for a moment haha. That ML was so mad at him and said that why are ya seducing me if ya don't like meh. The MC apologized said it was unintentional. So they continued the process again, and again, it was so gentle and comfortable that the MC cant help and say, copy paste "Well lighter... lighter.... ah... just like this.... exert a little.. fo.. for.. force..' So you can imagine the mood of the ML then hehe. So what do you think the ML did? ^^ hehehe~

[collapse]

Anyway, I have not finish reading this. I just want to right this cuz I was itching to write the spoiler haha. Adios amigos amigas, I'll be back at mlt-ing this haha. Probably write more after reading the whole book. Ciao!

Aw man. Just finished this. Well it could have gone longer or have more extras lol. The chapters about the real world was kind of short. It would be good if it was longer. Wanna see more of their interaction.

Probably one that stuck aside from above is this:

Spoiler

ML found out that he was raising a wild man outside. Rage rage rage! Kill! Destroy!

MC: No! I'm his father!

Protagonist: sound of a broken glass

Well, I really liked the beginning and I'm also going to continue reading this... BUT there were just a bit too much scenes where the MC gets punished by the ML with basically r*pe. Not enjoyable.

The story seemed really fluffy and funny at first and later there were also some comedic moments. Just... their relationship... the ML always gets his way with the MC because our protagonist is afraid of the strong demon king. And he also puts a monitor and tracker on him... that's kind of bad. I was... more>> ready to ignore this because it could lead to a lot of funny and exciting situations, but together with the other points mentioned above... nope, don't like it.

I will continue reading though, maybe their relationship becomes healthier. <<less

In short, this story is an enjoyable and easy read with an occasionally silly MC and cold-but-passionate ML. Misunderstandings never quite clear up until the very end but the MC isn't excessively frustrating and the drama never gets tedious (I'd even call it fun). Unfortunately, while the story is overall fun to follow, the ending leaves something to be desired: things felt slightly rushed, certain events could have been expanded on further, and the relationships between MC and certain characters could have been richer (though they're still nicely written!). Even... more>> so, I enjoyed the story. Had the author taken more time with the ending, I would have definitely given the story a 5/5. I originally gave this 3/5 stars based on my assessment of its writing but added some more points just for it simply being fun to read.

Tone (4/5)

The overall tone of the story is light and the story ends on a happy note, but the last few chapters prior to the end feel heavier due to the direction the climax takes. The story leads in and out of serious moments quite naturally after setting up the initial humour, so the story-telling doesn't feel emotionally flat. Even so, I think certain events could have been improved/expanded on further, mainly because while I still felt quite moved at parts, I wanted a bit more.

Spoiler

Examples:

  • A greater acknowledgement of what happened between ML and MC during that rough punishment sex
  • A bit more lead up/expansion on the growing feelings of MC towards ML
  • More interaction between the Son of Destiny and MC
  • More lead-up to the selfless sacrifice of the cute System for the MC (I loved how sincere their friendship became but felt there was minimal work done in transitioning them from a professional work relationship to a lovely personal one)
    [collapse]
I would have loved if some of the serious moments had been expanded on further!

Characters 3/5

MC is a modern, likable and overall nice guy who hates having to fill his role as a typical 'scum' villain that harasses others. He tries to hold back while staying in character, but he is often misunderstood by others anyway and seen with either: a) fear (eg. By subordinates), or b) disgust (eg. By ML and some peers).

ML is a cold and powerful character who is most-often portrayed as strict, intimidating and unsympathetic but occasionally has tsundere moments in moments of shyness or agitation.

MC's system is a cheerful and earnest worker that follows the rules more often than not. I came to see her as a cute little sister.

The characters are quite likable/consistently written, but I find they fall short in really selling emotion to readers. There is a passing level of depth to the main characters (and some supporting characters) but I was waiting for more throughout the entire novel.

Relationship (3/5)

As implied by the summary of the novel, the romantic relationship between MC and ML first begins through a misunderstanding. Under the belief that the MC likes him, our ML becomes more aware/considerate of MC's actions and slowly develops feelings for him in turn. Unfortunately for ML, he is actually the first to fall in love, leading to much of the comedy written at the beginning of the story.

Spoiler

At first, MC denies his romantic feelings towards ML, but his eventual acceptance is quite lovely, stemming from his feelings of wonder and grattitude whenever ML shows he cherishes him.

[collapse]

The ending left much to be desired with their dynamic but ultimately maintains their feelings for each other. I mainly wish the explanation of MC and ML's relationship in the real world had been polished a bit more. Keeping it short is fine, and I suppose they did demonstrate to some degree, but I definitely felt that the adage 'show, don't tell' applied here.

R*pe

Spoiler

Take this with a grain of salt but I believe there is a moment of actual non-consent between the MC and ML while they are both romantically involved that is treated seriously at the time of it happening. At the very least it is dubcon. ML takes his anger out on the MC after the latter's 'betrayal', and I was surprised by how violent it got -- to the point that the ML broke the MC's leg and caused him real pain (though I believe this was softened somewhat by the demons' fast healing). There was a moment afterwards where the MC again feels fear when thinking of s*x with ML, but this was eventually forgotten/looked over with the progression of the plot.

I thought that this was important to note because while one can skim over the scene and perceive it as aggressive sex, I think the scene was intended to show a moment of true darkness. The moments after this were definitely of those I thought would have benefited from being expanded on further.

[collapse]

Plot (3/5)

The plot you followed within the transmigrated world was quite easy to follow so long as you remembered who was who and what everyone ultimately wanted but I do wish that there had been more chemistry between MC and the Son of Destiny.

Spoiler

When starting the novel I had expected more interactions between the MC and Son of Destiny but the author spent more time designing goofy scenes between MC and ML.

[collapse]

The real world plot was quite straightforward but ultimately felt unimportant despite being the cause of MC's transmigration. Even so, I thought the twist at the end was quite interesting, and while I again wish things had been wrapped up more cleanly and in less of a rush, the story wasn't terrible.

Overall I really wish I could have given the story more points! I genuinely enjoyed the story and saw so much potential but I could feel the disappointment keenly when things ended and certain things I had waited for never came. Even so, I definitely would recommend this novel if you're looking for something fun and easy to read. It's still an enjoyable story. <<less

4/5. Couple of boring bits that could be sped through, but everything was nicely concluded.

Misunderstandings, misunderstandings, misunderstandings abound!

MC was sent into a fantasy novel by his father in order to become braver, but oops something happened and he ends up in cannon fodder XZT instead of the protagonist.

... more>> In order to help the protagonist, he lies (and lets the ML continue to misunderstanding, misunderstanding, and misunderstanding) to help the protagonist and continue his own mission.

Mr Overbearing President, er, Overbearing Demon King goes, yes, you must be in love with me so that's why you did all these things. And MC goes, hmm, why not? It makes everything easier.

Then he accidentally, and actually falls in love.

All the MC knows about the ML is from the book, and slowly, he begins to realise that the ML is more than the character in the book, and his own thoughts and feelings.

Spoiler

So much so that he makes the decision to stay in the world with the demon king. But of course, that doesn't happen because Plot occurs.

[collapse]

Pros:

  • Cute interaction between the system and MC.
  • Overbearing Demon King is overbearing, but not that overbearing. Like the MC describes him, the ML's like a kid who hasn't finished school, and only knows how to go buy, buy, buy, when trying to impress the person he loves.
  • HE, 1v1. No unnecessary love triangles (only misunderstood ones)
  • Comedy! There's funny bits scattered throughout the entire story.
Spoiler

MC: No, Protagonist, I'm your father!

ML:......

Protagonist: Noooooo! I don't have a father like you! You abandoned me and my mother! *Acts like a kid who just realised his father was a scum.*

[collapse]

Or:

Spoiler

After their first time:

Hua Feihua: I can smell you guys on each other, hmm, YOU HAD SEX?

ML: *blushes like a virgin maiden*

MC: (can't let HFH think I'm the bottom and I fainted twice) Y-yeah! We did! So?

HFH: the Demon King's the bottom??!!

[collapse]

Cons:

  • Couple of boring bits that could be sped through.
  • Some might not like the whole, 'im a straight guy! I like girls! I'm not bent' thing
  • Spoiler

    Poor Protagonist! Although the world was restored, his memories are all gone! : (

I really liked this story, so much so that I started mtl editing it to make it more readable and then went back to read the edited version. It's cute and funny and overall pretty feel good. The ML isn't nearly as overbearing as in other novels, in fact, until very close to the end he's mostly just awkward and embarrassed about his crush and tries to hide it while still being a mighty demon king. It's really precious. The system is adorable as well and kind of snarky, so... more>> the convo's between them and the MC are fun to read.

I always love it when the MC is capable and just as strong as the ML or vice versa. I never really enjoy damsel in distress tropes so this story is especially enticing to me because the two save each other often. And although the Demon King is stronger, the MC is among the most strong in the demon world.

I haven't completely finished the story yet, since I've gotten to the part where the MC and ML are pretty much together-together so I've lost interest overall, hence the missing one star, but up to this point it's really a joy. I will say that towards the end when their relationship comes to complete fruition, it starts to get a little tropey and the ML is suddenly super overbearing but the rest of the story is really low key and fun with a natural relationship progression and lots of interesting moments. <<less

The plot seems interesting, a timid, over-cautious and too gentle guy having to act as an arrogant to weak, boot-licking to strong, playboy type character. And he isn't allowed to be ooc. Also the demon king (ML) is very cute.

I love this novel. The pacing is great, the humor hits hard, and readers will encounter equal parts hilarity and heartache.

One of the aspects of the novel I can't praise enough is that the author wrote this with a clear outline in mind. I've read a lot of novels with great reviews--eg. Husky and his White Cat Shizun, Heaven Official's Blessing--but frankly they all have issues with golden fingers popping up out of nowhere, sudden new worlds never mentioned before, and dei ex machina galore to solve the authors' tangled... more>> plot lines.

This novel is the definition of clean and contained. Its scenes do not drag on for the sake of word count. New developments are believable and hinted at in past chapters.

Even the misunderstandings are hilarious. For those who hate misunderstanding-based plots, this novel's misunderstandings made me choke on my tea.

The translations on Chrysanthemum Garden are great. I chose to finish reading the rest of this in the original language, but either way the read is satisfying. The author favors use of Chinese idioms.

Spoiler

There is dubious consent/noncon in this, and the treatment of that dubcon is a bit flippant and victim-blaming. This is common in CN BL. It didn't affect my enjoyment but it might lower someone else's.

Dont bother with low ratings and reviews this is a good one. I read it in one sitting. You're missing out a lot if you skip this one.

Not very plot heavy and its story is mainly focused on the main leads. However it is a good transmigration + system story. We have a very doting ML and an MC who dotes on the ML in return. The misunderstanding between them makes up a huge portion of the plot but it’s not as annoying as they somehow move the plot forward.

One unique thing about this story is

Who would’ve thought that instead of a love triangle the MC would actually claim that the protagonist he’s trying to protect is his son. I couldn’t stop laughing. But Im also happy that that lie didn’t stay for too longe between the MC and ML. They were at the part where they fully trusted each other and to add another misunderstanding would be low.

Rated it 4 stars just because I usually prefer more action heavy xianxia novels with good cultivation world-building. An example would be Heaven’s Official Blessing and another is Devil Venerable Also Wants to Know (This novel is shorter than TGCF but more concise that the plot doesn’t drag or focus on other characters for too long) <<less

It's a fun BL novel but I just feel so sad about
Spoiler

protag being just a bunch of data, it would be great if he's a comatosed kid put on the simulation and in RL he'll be adopted by MC nd ML along with System chan ?

1. DON'T LISTEN TO THE NONSENSE OF Saikyi (https://www. Novelupdates. Com/user/116757/Saikyi/) like What kind of nonsense is that person babbling about? WHAT r*pe? There's literally no sign of r*pe and as far as I'm concerned, smutty scenes happen so far into the novel and it's bloody consented. No r*pe. (Saikyi probably also liked his/her own comment) That guy's a troll. This is literally a fluffy novel, kind of, still fluffy.

2. It's nothing like FOD or SVSSS, difference is extremely large especially FOD. Transmigration is the only thing that's similar... more>> to SVSSS, but the process of transmigration is different.

Anyways, I like this better than SVSSS in all honesty. This seems like it's going in a better direction, but then again that's what I thought about SVSSS too until I grew to dislike Shen Yuan as well as the so called "romance" in SVSSS (Ugh it was forced, the extras made up for SY and Bingmei's relationship tho *it became kinda cute*. But the highlight was definitely MBJxSQJ and Shen JiuxYQY)

Hopefully this wouldn't end up like SVSSS, AND hopefully MC would gradually genuinely fall in love with the Demon King ML. So far so good. <<less

You think it would be a cute story, but it was so dragged out, you just want to end. I only enjoyed up to the ~40 chapter.

There are no smut scenes in the book if anyone is curious, those scenes are glossed over very quickly. All you'll read is the discomfort MC feels after the act and implications of what happened during the session.

I would give this 3.5 stars, the beginning is really cute, but the ML kept losing points for me since MC kept making him look bad (for... more>> the reader), which I don't appreciate. In the end, it lost its cuteness. More and more misunderstandings pop up to the point I'm jaded.

Anyway, compared to other Xianxia, this is a light read. The narration is simpler and easier to understand. This story includes more of the development of MC and ML's relationship rather than plot. The relationship wasn't great for me that's why the story wasn't as enjoyable. Plus, the lack of smut scenes leaves alot to be desired. This story is focused on the main couple, but truthfully, the love story isn't that deep, they have a lot of suggestive scenes, but none of the actual clap action.

My verdict is that, its not exactly focused on plot, also not smut, relationship focused, but not deep, cute but not exactly it. It's all of those things, and at the same time not. It's just a really lack luster novel for me. <<less
