When it came to her fate, Luo Bei was the rare one in a million fated to be wealthy and high-ranking.

Luo Bei didn’t believe it at first, until one day she unexpectedly discovered:

The pitiful person next door who suffered under his biological mother’s abuse would become an overbearing CEO with power and influence.

The ill-fated pregnant lady downstairs was the cool CEO’s wife who ran away with his unborn child.

The sallow and emaciated youth living in the basement was a superstar film emperor.

Lastly, she realized she herself seemed to be…

One thing in novels that I began to find uncomfortable were novels with female protagonists that had in their titles (even tho I have read some) :

  • "xxxx prime minister's 4th daughter"
  • "xxxx cold general's wife"
  • "xxxx demon emperor's wild concubine"
It looks like the value of the protagonists, from the start, is because she is a daughter, a wife, or a concubine. And this is linked with a powerful male.

When you see a male protagonist novel title, it's always emphasizing how domineering they are, how strong they are, how much potential they have. But why, when it's the turn of the female, it's linked to the success of a male?

I love this novel because even though you do have a powerful male, he isn't the sky, the worth, the goal of the female protagonist.

They are simply the best partners like the ML said one time:

"I work to grow a sugarcane field, you grow a watermelon field, isn't it best that we can grow our fields at the same time and I can have your watermelons and you can have my sugarcanes?"

Even if they, for some reason, could not be together in the end, the MC would undoubtedly shine. The ML was more than a partner, it was an inspiration, a mentor (and a brainwashing machine!). She was just a normal person with low goals that met someone that said to her, look, you can reach even higher. And after that, she pursued higher and higher goals and worked hard for it.

This novel is how two people from selling sugarcanes in the streets worked together to become overbearing presidents. The MC value was in herself only, and not in others, this was refreshing. And their relationship, this kind of romance, it's so rare that I was sad when I finished dreading. This is a type of history that I would love to read more.

This is definitely a must-read.

This novel deserves nothing less than 5 stars. It's a well-written refreshing twist on the popular cliched novel cannon fodder and domineering CEO troupe. The plot is simply brilliant. The author introduced different arcs and supporting characters based on fictious novels that got the readers hooked with its great pacing. Its main idea itself is already very intriguing by bringing a bystander MC in between all those cliched mary sue and gary stu protagonists, but the way the author introduced each character was very noteworthy.

The main star in this novel... more>> are the characters. Every character in this story never followed the usual archetype, they have their own spunks and unique color. Even the side characters have enough depth and growth. There's absolutely no one-dimensional character here.

I especially like ML's character, an antisocial self-willed money-grubber (that sounds so distasteful, but that's truth lol). I love how, unlike other typical CN novels, the author focused on how MC and ML build their business literally from scratch while not downplaying their struggles. Maybe it's because I also experienced how hard it is to build a business from nothing with some friends, but this novel resonates a lot with me.

The romance is also very realistic. Despite the fact that ML is actually rich af, MC and ML got together because they've been through a lot and are the ones who understand each other the most. I love how there's no unrealistically obsessed villainous characters in the story. The people who held feelings for either MC or ML understood well when to give up and resolved everything amicably like irl.

The writing itself is light and and easy to follow since the author is quite experienced. Out of all the author's work, so far this is the best one yet. <<less

Nice and simple read. There's not much drama, and I like all the characters. MC at first have the characteristic that we all can relate at one point in life: Fresh graduate looking for a job, and will be satisfied with a desk (or stable wage) job. After having a dream about the future of her tenants, she started to change subtly into a more thoughtful and mature person than before. As for ML, he is a rare personality even in real life. He's straightforward but still within politeness, very... more>> hardworking but knows when to rest, likes money but not exactly greedy, will give advice when you need it, etc., etc., definitely a trope for a perfect person. But when reading, you don't really feel he's so perfect because his personality just have enough imperfections like a normal human would. I love the positivity of the ML the most. It is amazing enough that he can easily brainwash people to follow him if he wants to. Overall great leisure read, my smile never left me throughout the whole novel. <<less

As a rational person I adored this story!

The leads are just so sensible in how they approach everything so no one’s feelings get hurt unnecessarily. They’re not overly cautious but they know that they wouldn’t be happy together if certain obstacles in their path aren’t cleared before they official become a couple. Furthermore, because they fully trust one another there’s no unreasonable jealousy Or suspicion. The open and honest communication that they have is so enviable because we know that a breakdown in communication is what causes a lot of... more>> relationships to fail in fiction and irl.

It doesn’t sound very exciting on paper but honestly this story was so refreshing because it depicted actual smart and logical people approaching romance. There’s no magic switch that flips that makes them fall for one another. Everything is gradual and natural.

Anyways, I stan representations of normal functioning adults dating! Read this story! <<less

If you're looking for an intense, steamy romance, look elsewhere. Having said that, this story was a pleasant surprise. The portrayal was very mature, which was unexpected because stories involving transmigration or with transmigration elements tend to be on the shallower side. I liked the FL enough, but it was really the ML who carried the story (and the little bean Jingzhou). This story made me laugh quite a few times, too. If there was something I would have wanted to be done differently, it would have been ... more>>

Love this novel. It is sweet and cute at the same time. It depicts how a woman and a man that are neighbours, friends, business partners, dating partners, and spouses interact.

I enjoyed their interactions a lot! Both of them are really mature in dealing with their relationship. An example would be how the male lead didn’t confess until he knew that the FL may like him because he had to consider their relationship as a business partner at that time. One fatal move could lead to a huge crack in... more>> their business relationship.

Another thing I enjoyed a lot and probably mainly why I read this novel was that it talked about the loopholes of some cliche novels we usually read.
Spoiler

An example would be the FL’s friend and neighbour. The FL’s friend which is the female lead in the novel the FL running away with a ball. In that particular case, she was tired of her husband’s and mother-in-law’s attitude that she ran away. This is where her mother-in-law would treat her coldly and not only that her husband (the ML in that novel) treat her coldly as well. Since at first he couldn’t marry some girl he liked or something. After the FL’s friend ran away, he then realised that he loves her.

In our current novel, the FL witness how her friend had became stronger mentally and physically because of being a mother. The FL’s friend also tells the FL her experience of that. To be honest, it’s quite sad if you imagine it *touch wood* on yourself. Like it must be horrible to just feel that everyday and with a practically useless husband. I mean if he’s unhappy, then don’t marry then. -.- Why must you vent on your wife?

Anyway, after that the FL’s friend’s husband found her and started to chase her. The ML in our novel directly told him off that if he really wanted to pursue her, he should deal with his own mother first. Like wow super cool move by the ML, huge plus point from me. LOL. Then, the husband did and reflected on his past actions that maybe if he did this earlier, his wife wouldn’t run away. The FL’s friend didn’t agree to his courtship but still let him to have access to their child. After a while, they just did joint parenting and the husband wasn’t caught up with how his wife didn’t like him anymore and such and support her like an old couple. For this particular part of the novel, it’s said that after a long time then did the wife agreed to be together with him. Well, since because she was talented herself too after working.

To me, this is really realistic. I mean I honestly think it’s hard to forgive someone easily and go back to a toxic family. Like so what if he loves her and all? His actions doesn’t justify the pain she suffered. So he deserved it like what the ML said. Since the ML even commented that the husband didn’t treat their relationship properly and thought of it as a mistress and boss relationship.

[collapse]

Another fun fact would be
Spoiler

turns out the FL is actually a FL in a novel as well. And the ML is the amnesiac boss. Even she was shocked by it but ignored it and lived on her life.

I believe she had only dream of this after this particular transmigrated girl came to disturb their romance. Transmigrated girl even judged the FL as someone who is a flower vase and the ML only liked her appearance bla bla. Like please, even if she is a flower vase, so what? The ML likes it after all. It also shows that she has that ability to be a flower vase. But if you say that the FL is a flower vase, it’s like downplaying all the efforts she worked hard together with the ML. It’s true that the ML is more talented in business but the FL is the one who is giving the money and working together with him. I disagree if you say she’s a flower vase in this novel.

After that, transmigrated girl even waited for the ML at the apartment (since she also rented a room and wanted to rent a room next to the ML). The ML was very irritated and didn’t bother her. He complained to the FL (since she is the apartment owner) and the FL said that if she did that again she will take actions. Obviously, the transmigrated girl took actions again. She told the FL that she was the fiancée and to the ML as well. The ML didn’t believe her. When the FL asked the ML on what if it’s true, the ML assured that he knows that he doesn’t have one nor is he married. Later, I think transmigrated girl went to the FL and ML’s car dealer shop and tried to emphasise that she is his fiancée. Unlucky for her was that their VIP customer that likes to disturb the ML is ML’s grandfather. The grandfather immediately told her off and assured the FL that he doesn’t look like one that has a fiancée. The transmigrated girl knew that this person might be the grandfather from the novel and was intimidated. She immediately left the apartment.

From this, it kinda also shows that in reality maybe even the transmigrated girl who knows of the future can intervene in a real romantic relationship between the lead. I mean she even tried to step in when the FL and ML’s relationship was already dating. It’s kinda like a mistress. I also liked how the FL knew that she was the FL of a novel but continued to work hard because who knows it may not turn out like in the novel.

[collapse]

To conclude, I would totally recommend this novel! <<less

The synopsis looks very promising so I read it. But halfway through, I got bored. The MC is very good. She is levelheaded, smart and kind. The ML is focused on money making so at the beginning of their meeting, they mostly talk about money - jobs, business, the like. I find their love story very adultlike which makes it seems less passionate. I got more interested on the side characters stories rather than the main.

Pros :

The MC works hard and just focuses in making money. MC doesn't meddle much in other people business but she knows when to step in. She's a nice person while still retaining her iq. We be waiting for this kind of queen.

The ML truly shines compared to the usual ML type. Boi has some humour and full of life. There's a childish side to him and it's entertaining reading this kind of ML.

The side characters have their own story and even the cannon fodders still have iq. ... more>>
Spoiler

female A met w/ MC and told MC to stay away from male A. MC told female A that it's up to male A to choose. Female A be like : oo yeah... that makes sense.

Male B likes MC, MC doesn't like him. Male B moves on. Finallyyyy someone who just moves on after they got rejected.

[collapse]

Cons :

The money making at the first half is kinda boring for me. The romance isn't that much but I still enjoy it. <<less
