The Rich Ex-Husband Cries and Begs to Remarry


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

Ruan Tian had been in love with Shen Shu for a long time. She pursued him fiercely while they were young, and was crazy for his love.

Ruan Tian always knew that Shen Shu still had a white moonlight inside his heart, but she was still willing to be the disposable stand-in if it meant she could be by his side.

However, no matter how hard she tried, she was always just an unwanted and scheming white lotus girl in Shen Shu’s eyes.

She was a notorious actress who lingered down near the eighteenth tier of the entertainment industry.

Then, in their second year of marriage, Ruan Tian was hit on the head and was surprised to realize that her life was a novel, and she was only the girl the domineering CEO was using as a substitute.

She was just an insignificant stepping stone in the story for Shen Shu and his white moonlight. A tool that would be used up until there was nothing left but a miserable smear of blood.

Thoroughly sobered by this realization, Ruan Tian hurriedly filed for divorce and didn’t hesitate to kick Shen Shu to the curb.

Bless the reviewers for warning about the ML, sometimes ratings or some reviews can be unreliable but nope, this ML is truly bad. I started it despite some reviews because I didn't know what was coming, but after seeing the options I came back to check who would the actual ML be because they all sucked, and the final ML wasn't even the best, don't be shy and check the spoilers in some reviews. Uh... I guess if you blur the lines between love and violence then you might like... more>> this. So what if he likes her? What if he remembered her birthday? What if he helped her get a role? (he even benefitted by having her act a lewdish scene with him on the audition) Come on, , I hate when people romanticize obsession, some guys truly believe it's romantic and behave stalkerish irl. Oh, but the author's writing style was quite funny so I'll give this 2 stars, but it's not worth the read, what twisted ideas of love does the author have? Trust me, you don't want those type of suitors, make them ugly and you'll see reality, don't forgive them just because they are hot, passionate, and rich. I guess it's my fault for not seeing the tag of Obsessive love, but I personally really dislike these type of men, and I'm sure everyone would hate being in that situation, the only people that don't realize it are people blinded by beauty, power, and riches (the people that romanticize this), and people blinded by their own ego and selfishness (the perpetrators). <<less

Massive waste of time.

i didn’t mind the female lead. Ruan Tiantian was entertaining, & admirable to an extent. However. ML is a pile of steaming cow doo doo.

This story is based on the belief abuse is justifiable if the perpetrator believes they love you. Gag.

To paraphrase my review on MTL: The author apparently thinks “that boy is tugging on your pigtails bc he likes you” is a valid conjecture. No Bob/Lisa, that little boy is physically harassing your daughter bc he needs remedial lessons on personal space & consent. If... more>> she retaliates by punching him in the face, she’s only rightfully reciprocating unwanted contact. No means no. Having feelings doesn’t mean doodoo if you don’t express them appropriately.

Humiliating, bullying, stalking, insulting, or otherwise harassing someone is not a display of affection. No matter how you twist it. Maybe it’s obsession or possessiveness — but it’s not love.

To list the kind of things the endgame ML does:

  • Posts her love letter to Shen Shu (another idiot character) in public. Then reads it aloud for the audience to mock
  • Sees her dragged unwillingly into an alley by a group & tells her he’ll only save her if she lets him kiss her
  • Bites her while kissing her (?!)
  • Kisses her without consent more than once
  • Stalks her. Repeatedly shows up at her house w/o permission
  • Follows her to her part-time job to cause her inconveniences while working
  • Revealed her poor schoolwork for public humiliation
  • Chose a scene with partial nudity for her to perform in an audition
  • Literally “always just thought of Ruan Tian as a tr*shy beauty that happened to have a slightly strong mentality.”
  • Deliberately limited her job opportunities as an adult
  • Trapped her in a disadvantageous contract then put her in debt when she tried to escape his influence
  • Has a breakdown when someone shows him a clip of her suffering traumatic aftereffects of her yrs of being ostracized & harassed. Finally realizes “oh she sees me as someone who hurt her”
  • has to repeatedly watch/listen to her sobbing to feel regret

i do not know how people justify this kind of behavior & history of mistreatment. I personally don’t find it cute or endearing or excusable in the least.

I wish she could’ve stayed single, with all the entitled [email protected] left pining for her in regret. 😠😩 None of them deserved her <<less

If you want to read a drama novel that doesn't end up with the ex-husband, this is the novel.

This is the only novel about a divorced couple that doesn't remarry again that I have ever read. Usually the ML is the ex-husband, but no it is not in here. Please read this novel and give rating truthfully for this novel.

If I had to pick a specific genre for this novel, it would definitely be a bully romance. So if you are the type of person who can't handle that sort of thing, then don't read it. Some people like it, some can't tolerate it. But seeing as there is s specific romance genre for as*hole guys who treat the person they like really badly, then I'd say there are tolerant people out there. I happen to be one of them, although this book is probably my limit.

Spoiler alert, this... more>> is one of the rare novels where the MC does not end up with her shitty ex-husband. And I am so glad that she did not end up forgiving him. You can say that they reconciled, in that she looks at their past with cold and unfeeling eyes and had moved on emotionally. I personally wish there was more angst and he suffered a bit more, but he did suffer quite a bit.

There were quite a few potential CPs in this novel. I personally shipped her with this actor friend that was a nice and quiet guy, but this is not that type of novel. For a while I thought she would end up with the yandere younger brother type guy (he's the young master of this prominent family), but she can't see him as anything but a younger brother and at the very end of the novel she ends up with

Qin Yu, her former classmate who bullied her a fair bit in high school.


For those of you are still on the fence, she does not forgive easily and for a good 90% of the novel, they are antagonistic towards each other. Then 9% she tolerates him and then the last 1% is where he moves her heart a tiny bit and she agrees to be his girlfriend. Tbh I would have liked to see an epilogue of cute moments, but alas it was not meant to be. ML had been in love with her from the very beginning, and used the most s*upid and hurtful method to make her notice him, especially since she only had eyes for her ex-husband at that time. He does eventually (it takes him while) to realise that he was in fact, hurtful and inconsiderate of her feelings and that it's a blessing that she does not want to kill him when she sees him. After that he does improve and treat her better, although the damage has been done and he has to work at it to get her to even tolerate him. I do love his family though. His mum is very gentle and sweet, and his younger brother is a bit of an idiot and good for laughs. The younger brother got into a bar fight once, defending her, and so when he was at the police station he called MC to bail him out. The police officer thought that they were newlyweds and referred to MC as his wife lol. MC just went along with it, then ML showed up and the brother wanted to cry when MC kept referring to herself as his wife.

All in all, this was an enjoyable read, although don't expect too much fluff (or any fluff at all actually...). But I read it for MC. Her personality is stubborn and strong, and because of her antagonistic relationship with her ex husband and ML, she doesn't really have a great backstage, so has to suffer a lot of rumors and slander. But on the plus side, she deals with that on her own strength. She is not a schemer, and will take things in her own stride and just continue to do things her way, and it's quite refreshing. <<less

A star for tge translation but minus 4 star for the plot.

I do not like the ML as he is one of the perpetrator of the abuses and bullying that the MC have been through. Many says about the reconciliation thing but we must not forget even though we forgive.

If the author tried the route of strong and independent wiman or being a"passerby" ML. Maybe the sory would be great.

The translation is great, and the MTL is readable :)


I saw 'harem-seeking' tag. Thank you hahahah

. I'm stuck between -1 to 2 stars for this one. So I decided to go with 1.0, and hope it shows here :p

also sorry for offending or making any of you said. That's not my intention. before you begin, remember that we all have our own sets of tastes and understanding. Tbh, despite the rating, I did enjoy the first dozen chapters. Ruan Tian is chill. So without further ado, you can proceed :)

first of all, every single male characters in here is

tr*sh. I liked none of them. I appreciated none of them and as much as the author tried their best to 'justify' the HE pairing of Tian Ruan/Ruan Tian with him, I seriously cannot.


I saw an average rating for this novel and usually they're up to my tastes but this one really disappointed and 'angsted' me. I can read through angst (this was hella angsty. At every turn you'll find some sob story or something equivalent about either our MC or MLs) and they have quite a satisfying story about it but this novel kept on looping and repeating and bring it up and spicing it up with even more events and elaborating some details to find the chacs even more pitiful. the only good points about this novel was


1. Ruan Tian's strong from the start characteristic

2. Her venomous and blunt mouth

3. And her absolute confidence and self-understanding.

The rest of the chacs could just go an die. All they do is 1. Realize RT ain't that bad, 2. Appreciate and like her more/start falling in love with her. Halfway through the novel, I even went to check if there was a harem tag for this.

The ending was not as I wanted, not as I wished it was. At chapter 92 at raws, I decided to eff it and skip to the last chapter. And here I am. Ugh, I feel so stuffy, I really want to vent. I'm not sure why some put quite a high rating for this novel. It's terrible. If the author instead focused on her career and Z E R O romance or 'reconciliation' of the characters and more freaking 'Gtfo of my life I dont wanna see you anymore' lines, it would have been more enjoyable but, I guess each to their own. :') Sorry to those who were expecting this to be a gem, don't spoil your mood reading this IF this isn't your cup of tea: It's angsty, crazy, dragging and just plain frustrating. Oh, sorry for typos. Using phone keyboards are hard.

Like what!??! Everybody described so far is so unreasonable and the welp I am actually a character in a book lets do complete 180 turn on all feelings and priorities was so poorly handled but I give it a pass on the premise alone:

【Male Lead and assorted slag hangers on will be thoroughly abused until the last chapter!】

This promise better be kept!

Plus it was funny how she deals with the first tr*shy hanger on we meet in person, by treating him like a person with mental disability whose opinion matters... more>> not at all and shrugging off his attemps of abuse as just part of the course of earning her bread, still easier and more lucrative that picking cans off the tr*sh on her opinion. It was so cool her just not being faced at all, she is a tough cookie. <<less

It’s an interesting read. It’s different from the classic revenge story, since it’s more about FL and her growth, moving away from her family and ex-husband and her career.

If you’re looking for romance, this story is not it because there’s hardly any and it’s right at the last chapters.

I enjoyed the story as in the development of the story, it was nice how she deals with her family and ex-husband and starts liking ML, many people dislike the ML but I quite liked him.

My problem lies with the lazy writing... more>> as in, the development is good, however, the author doesn’t describe why FL loves her husband so much and it is quite frustrating because he is really not nice to her.

The characters are quite shallow, they are not much back story and their feelings are not described a lot, like FL liking ex-husband and ML liking FL in the past.

I think I didn’t enjoy it as much because I just read ‘I Just Want to Freeload on Your Luck’ which has a similar story but is better written as is it caused me to empathize more with the characters.

Overall, it’s an okay read if you’re looking for a strong FL with not much romance and cliche showbiz story. <<less

I don't even wanna give this half a star. Okay. I read until chapter 14 and the angst and frustration are almost killing me. The MC is basically suffering suffering suffering from the men who love her sister, and through the story we only see her being bullied and insulted without a hint of sweetness or romance or fluff. I can still stand it for a few chapters but I read the last two

... more>>

and guess what? She's abused till the end even if she somewhat gets justice and love but its in such a bad and distorted way that it's horrible at that point I just wish she hated everyone and ended up happy by herself somewhere far away


there also plot holes and things that dont make sense such as : she entered the entertainment industry because she wanted to be liked by people, but she's always scolded and she doesn't care much about it saying that anyways what people think doesn't matter.
to be honest I didn't get the slightest bit of joy or enjoyment reading this I just felt emotionally abused and as the fellow reader said, my blood pressure skyrocketed <<less

I got curious after reading the translations and went to read the RAW to the end. I'm still not sure how to feel about the ending, but I have to admit that even in the end, I still don't really like the ML. But I'll get back to that.

To start things off, I really have to say that the whole series makes me feel terrible for the FL. Her past was pretty tragic, her life after being picked up by her parents again was just plain sad, and even as... more>> the story is going on and she's doing better for herself (career-wise), she's still being harassed by all these goddamn men. Honestly, I am not satisfied with any of the suitors she really had cause they all just seemed like self-centered pricks that only really cared about themselves. None of them had any sense to try and be more discreet so that the FL wouldn't be harassed by the media with all the scandals they basically forced her into, wouldn't really take no for an answer when she explicitly says on multiple occasions that she doesn't feel love for them, and the ML often straight up abducts her into his car several times even though she says she doesn't want to go with him. She is frequently manhandled by people - grabbed, kabe-donned, dragged into cars - and she obviously doesn't like it, but often has to go along with them to avoid making a scene. Honestly, I often got annoyed at all the men and just wanted the FL to be able to like, live her life without having all these stalkers appear literally everywhere she goes. The series portrays the FL as a strong, independent woman, which she kinda is but kinda isn't? Honestly she feels a bit like a doormat with how she has to go along with all these men's whims, but I also don't really blame her since all of them are far more rich and powerful than her, so she's often just left at their mercy.

With the ML, her past with him will honestly make your blood boil.

He is one of the ex-husband's "friends" in high school that pretty much bullied her to death during high school. When he was younger, he didn't have any consideration for her at all, didn't think much of humiliating and harassing her, and did all these horrible things to her because he actually liked her and was jealous that she was so in love with the ex-husband and wanted her to "submit" to him. He's a massive a**hole, though he does actually apologize after realizing the mental distress he caused her in high school. But it does feel like the only reason he regretted his actions was because she really didn't like him during the series (until the very end) and tried to avoid him like the plague (except he stalked her like a piece of sticky taffy so she couldn't get rid of him).


While the FL's past with the ML was bad, her past with the ex-husband is honestly much worse. He's such scum.

It later comes out that she saved him when he fell off a cliff during a school excursion, but gets a fever and during that time says that he'll marry her yadda yadda, but then her sister ends up taking the credit for saving him and he forgets he ever said that stuff to the FL. It's only after this event that the FL (for whatever reason) falls deeply in love with him and starts chasing him no matter how much he treats her like tr*sh. All the wrongs he did in the past do come out during the series though, and he ends up massively regretting how much of a d*ck he was. Especially because she really doesn't give a sh*t about him after the divorce (but honestly, he really should be giving her the alimony. The fact that he never does even after he realizes how much he has wronged her is pretty dumb).


All in all, the series is okay if you want some dog-blood drama. The FL isn't the vicious type like in most CNs, and pretty much tries to brush most things off, so a lot of the retaliation (against other celebrities, etc.) is done by her suitors. At the same time, this is a novel world that likes to abuse the FL, so be prepared for that. If I had one line to describe how this novel made me feel, it'd probably be: just leave her alone already, god! <<less

TLDR 3 stars very cookie cutter and n9t done particularly well

The story is a basic return of the lost child from a wealthy family, where the parents have no real affection, and sibling is a vile piece of tr*sh. It opens well generating both sympathy for protagonist and hatred for the antagonists. Then it falls down hard. The protag morphs into the Mary Sue and through no particular effort assumes the heroine's mantle. YAWN

The translation is very good even if it's currently only the first 10 chapters (3 translated =... more>> 1 original). The MTL is readable if very difficult.

In short there's worse and there's better <<less

I started this because I am lover of novels where the FL gets revenge by living well but after reading 40 chapters I can’t finish it. The ML is so overbearing and the other options aren’t much better. Honestly the ML is the worst option reading about how clingy he is was draining. Concept and FL was really good but male leads ruined it.

Don't read this if you cry a lot when reading

... more>>

I've spoilt everything I read by now lol

This book is about an ill fated MC who was in love with her husband but the latter didn't like her back and end up killing her for te Mc's white lotus bit*h of a sister! The sister is really fake and is all tears. She always take credits for the things MC has done for her husband and always pretends her sister I'd mean, rude and all that to her.. The MC gains the favor (a lil bit) of those who previously liked the white lotus and the ex-hubby already knows that white lotus isn't that simple.

The MC obviously has someone who likes her but he's a bit sketchy. He is from a prestigious family (but his parents are dead and he's the one in control) he loves the MC because she was the first one who wasn't scared of him. He does has a wicked personality that MC doesn't know.

This story is really sad in terms of how strong the MC is when her mother doesn't believe her, people scolding her for nothing, her husband hates her and doesn't even know how much she sacrificed for him....

I usually like most novels because I’m capable of suspending my disbelief for most unrealistic plots, but good lord oh my god every man in this novel ducked a**. I hated the ex husband, I hated the new ML I even hated the second male lead. She never even got like literary justice over these men who mistreated her, she just had to grin and bear it for like 90 chapters.

it’s horrible I don’t recommend it

Overall this is a good novel to read and I have so much fun while reading this.

... more>>

I laugh a lot and cry a lot too. Blame me for being too emotional 😂


For you who actually still hesitant to read or not, let me remind you to not judge book by its rating. Actually this one has a pretty decent plotline. The female lead is really courageous and brave (i really admired her stubbornness 💯), and there is this character personality development which is actually made this novel more realistic.

in fact there is no such a perfect human in this world just like the character in this novel. We, they are imperfect, but what make some people special is their willingness to change, apologize, and learn to become a better person.


So yeah in conclusion, I really encourage you to read this one, you won't regret it😉 <<less

Note: translations and original chapter numbers do not match.

I’m still reading the story but I needed to at least counter some of the arguments against.

  1. This is not a transmigration story. FL has the skills learned from this world and no other. She is not some super magical assassin reborn nor a super hacker or some one else who was at the top of the world. This was the part that I liked about this story.
  2. FL has 0 backup. No one supports her and everything that she has are what she got through hard work. This shows through her very thick skin and stubbornness. I don’t think a weak person who just cries without that willpower would be alive to even start this story. Another aspect that I really liked about the FL and she keeps it so far.
  3. She went through the hard knocks of life and it shows some of them as the story progresses but I do wish that the author put more of it to flesh out the character more. Hoping for more as I read further in.
The translated parts are very..... mean to the FL but to expect the FL to fight back against powerful people with her meager self? I think that’s more impossible instead of her being s*upid to not fight back. She is... more>> alone and that is the basic starting premise of the story. Just continue to read and she does get justice.

FL joined the entertainment industry because she needed money. Also, she likes to act. She does know that she is beautiful so no need for angst. She is there because no one is supporting her so the money she makes is what let’s her eat and have a home. That’s why she lives so far away in a building that has no security, it’s cheap.

I think the author did a good job getting our collective blood pressure to rise looking at the injustice done to our poor FL. Next is to see the face slapping in a way that fits the story premise. So far, it’s ok. The male leads are all.... sadistic pieces of.......... I don’t think they will be considered potential partners unless the girls are huge M...... romance is a bit.... weak.

I’m removing the transmigration tag since the FL did not transmigrate. She had a dream that the world she is in was a story with her as a side character used and thrown aside. In fact, this could just be her putting all the crap together to realize she should just cut ties to the people who have been bad to her - just conjecture and not part of the plot but seems to fit.

Give the story a try. I’m not putting a rating until I finish the story. <<less

I decided to give this story a read after I really enjoyed the translators work on the story "Proud Farm Girl With A Space".

However I'm quickly realising that this story has to many issues for me to continue reading it. First of, the translator is doing good and so no issue with the translator here.

However I felt that the story had no real hook in me. MC is fun and all but she's surrounded by abusive and manipulative people who apparently has also been physical abusive towards her.

I don't like... more>> any of the "love interest", if you would call them that. They are either abusive, manipulative, deranged, obsessive or all of the above. I got to ch 60 when I decided this was enough.

Also the story love to show the story from a internet troll pov and a lot of time is taken to just try and make sense of the way people are hurling abuse towards the MC.

Im not saying it alls bad but not something I will continue reading mainly because of the abusive setting MC is placed in. <<less

I mtled the rest.

Anyway, I really think the novel was well written and translated. Although, I am no means an expert in writing, I was able to sincerely immerse in the perspectives of characters especially the FL (Ruan Tian).

I also like how the characters were constructed. Ruan Tian, as an abused FL (emotionally) had a very realistic response on her relationships. Furthermore, I also like how most relevant characters in FL's life can experience regret and change.

The only thing I did not like is how the autor did not write... more>> extra scenes after the ending T_T. I want more. <<less
