Absolutely good. The MC is totally different from those who pretend to be a boy but fail at it, in gender bender novels. She acts like a boy, thinks like a boy and can go to any extent to make her disguise perfect. Even uses swearing words that bad boys usually use. Not even the ML could dare think that the MC is a girl until the feast was exposed right in front of him....

MC's upbringing is a big reason behind her but it also developed her as a superior... more>> person in status and as such her gas field doesn't lose out to anyone else.

And if we are to talk about ML, from the the start he's shown to be cold towards almost everyone except MC. Typical cold ML feature. But still even after seeing their happy ending, I'm unsatisfied. He's practically the ML who doesn't understand or even try to listen to an explanation and when finds he will lose MC, he comes back begging for love and trying to solve all that with sweet talks and explanation. I would rather have MC be with her step-brother Will, who knows her gender since they met first, with a 100% trust factor that's between them.

Well, the ML does turn out for better afterwards but the initial drama between the two left me unsatisfied with this boy.

Rather than the ML, it's the MC's charm that keeps the novel going on. She's more of a man of character than any man could be. As a girl, she knows what the girls love to listen to and also uses it to sway hearts of many girls perfecting her disguise. But this also makes her alert regarding the sweet-talks. The ML just by chance became her fav or else, she would never had liked him with all the super-awesome people beside her. This is also why she's susceptible to betrayal and when she feels the ML might betray her, she goes crazy (in a good way if we have such a ML). A big reason for this is ML himself as in the first part, he doesn't believe her and went over for a blind date just to get her attention (the worst way ever to get a woman's attention).

Let me give an example.


There's this once instance where MC as a boy sees the ML, who's wearing a shirt the MC ironed, coming out of a store with a girl (who's the cousin, minor role, no love-rival) hand-in-hand with ML. MC goes furious. Goes over to ML's house. Into the cloak room. And rips the clothes to shreds, especially those that she ironed herself. Then with a nice smile exits the mansion without letting other people know what just happened as if she came for a stroll. Then goes to a bar, drinks, smashes the bottle right in front of ML. Goes back to her own home and keeps the ML grovelling.


I don't know if other people like this ML but for me it's a no. Only the MC keeps me going in this novel and her family ties. MC and MC's family is way too good. The only part I don't understand is the parents' divorce which is totally baseless. They just got apart although they love both their children very much and didn't have any affair with someone else.

I guess the end of the novel was pretty rushed as the author left some parts unexplained. For example-


1. Why MC's parents divorced?

2. Who's the blond man who calls MC Dylan when she plays violin for her father during the time in hospital?

3. Who's the one that told old Smith about her allergy of lily's pollens when he trapped her in the secret room to let her die?

4. What happens to MC and ML's lives afterwards? Also side characters too..

5. Why did Jing Meiyan (?) wasn't on MC's wedding day?

6. Did Ji Jing (?) and Duan Yu make up finally?

7. What about Bernard afterwards? The guy was practically out of picture the second time MC returns to country F.

8. What about MC's unborn child?


... and lots more.

MC is a gem and so the novel's too. Deducting 1 star due to ML. <<less

Great story. If only they can continue the story about Lu Dingning’s pregnancy and after marriage, it will surely satisfy my cravings for happily ending.

This is really funny! The ML didn't think the MC was female even when he caught her crossdressing. The ML is definitely a pe*vert and they don't have a very healthy relationship but hopefully that will improve soon. There's also a manga version you can reat that updates fairly quickly. It's not as good as the novel in my opinion but most comics aren't.

Its really basic. Its your common gender bender revenge, except with a brother. That's literally it. I hated the male lead. And honestly, the FL didn't have much up her sleeve. Yes, shes good at disguising herself with qualities that boys have, except those are actually really common in gender benders, its basic. She also ends up getting caught in a common way so there's another basic point. But you'll like it if you're new to gender bender but you'll end up dropping it like I did to a few... more>> basic novels to invest my time in other novels/manhuas/mahwas <<less

Good review for the comedy. To be honest, I dropped this novel for a really long time. It's good in the sense that it's pretty funny and all but there is really just TOO MANY misunderstandings between MC and ML. It's not like Bringing the Nations Husband Home where it's one big misunderstanding that acts as the foundation for the ones further to come. Instead, every misunderstanding happens almost right after the previous one was explained. Also, some if the characters just infuriate me. Aka that western girl who is... more>> in love with MC and that dude William. William knows that going to visit MC will put both MC and western girl in danger but he still indulges her. DAFUQ?!

  1. Another point is, how the f did ML's bestie become ML 2?! Always thought he'd be the wingman type ya know?
