It's boring. There's not much going on. If I were to summarize it's basically just setting up her store, sending the child to school, meeting the baby daddy, a little bit of romance, then that's it. And the romance wasn't even that fluffy or intense. Conflict? What's that? Lol, there's also no significant conflict that could develop the characters and their lives.

It's so... realistic. The kid is just a kid, a little bit traumatized, but a kid. Real kid, not the usual... novel son-of-the-ML/little-ML type.

[SPOILERS! I guess]

The ML is... just a man, a CEO, yes. But just a first time dad that had a good dad growing up and a bad mom and some messy relatives. FL is also just a normal woman, nothing too amazing about her. Yes, she got her own business and survived in the concret jungle and trived, but didn't have the "oh, she is a 5... more>> michellin stars chef at only 20" or something, she just had a lot of culinary knowlege and survived using it. She didn't want a relationship, but when it appeared in front of her she didn't sprint away, she took her time and enjoyed.

This novel is just the day-to-day of a single-mom raising her child and learning how to accept the presence of the father. No big problems, no third wheel and no big villain/villainess.

It's just... a very peaceful and tranquil story. Not gonna lie, took me 3x the usual time to read this, 'cus there was no big plot, nothing to make thing a little more interesting. All in all, I slept very well for 4 days thanks to this novel, so guess all went well. <<less

It was so-so BUT this one stands out in a way that our FL is literally the ideal female character that I've been waiting for. She didnt get into entertainment, she's not a know it all, not a white lotus. She's your cold boss that doesnt want anything in her plan to go wrong. She's not s*upid.

Spoiler

she didnt run away or hide from the ML when the ML found out about their baby. They didnt fell in love immediately

[collapse]

The reason why I rated this 4 star is because of the cliche setting. I love trnasmigration, reincarnation, rebirth but I want it to be different each time I read (whcih of course is very hard, I know) the usual overbearing ML makes me bored ugh. <<less

A joke. Sometimes these stories feel like propaganda. What child would be excited to say mommy spank me and then the mom makes him sign a contract be doesn't understand. Anyway no four year old talks like this. And you're telling me an abused and neglected child would just up and accept his mom being nice. Are we just going to pretend children aren't affected by this? And her knowing he was beaten she sure did agree to beating him rely fast. And she's perfect. She cook and cleans. Isn't... more>> shameful and beautiful. Whatever. These stories feel more like how children and women should act. And if you have any desires as a woman you must be greedy and terrible. The ML could be cut and pasted. Top of the line domineering. <<less

It is an ok read. No drama, no major disagreements and misunderstandings and what not.... just a nice, slice of life read. It is a quick mtl and its plain not bad but nothing to write home about. Would I read it if I wasnt quarantined right now? no. But I got nothing better to do.

Have you noticed how most of the times (always) in this type of novel or novels with childcare is about raising a son?. Sometimes there are daughters too, but I always see a boy mixed in the equation.

Anyway, I've mtl'ed this, is a decent one, there is no much drama, the romance seems to be a little too... boring, the raising of the bun is a little more realistic in comparison with other novels: there are punishments, some misbehavior and the kid doesn't read your mind and instantly knows... more>> you are sad.

Some things I liked

Spoiler

1. The orig MC doesn't appear and becomes the new villainess

2. The ml's mother, while annoying, doesn't have any real power and can't cause real harm the MC and the bun

3. The ML is not bad, not too overbearing with our MC and gets to be kind of cute when he starts pursuing her

4. MC is very wary of Ml's intention at first like any normal mother who is afraid of getting her baby taken away from her or being exposed to harm, I found that refreshing

5. One of the orig cannon fodders got to live a different life that the novel one, perhaps one that was happier that the original one

[collapse]

Things I didn't like

Spoiler

1. The romance and chemistry between MC and ML felt kind of bland, but at least it wasn't a roller-coaster full of drama

2. The ML accepted the fact that MC was from another world too easily, at least for me, it would have been understandable if he had experienced some paranormal stuff, I can only guess he did that because of his near-not really near? Death experience

3. Orig Villainess/cannon fodder got a frustrating end, what is the use in making her reappear and then not doing much about it?

4. Grown up bun in the extra seems to be a little dumb to me, is like putting a child's thinking process in a teenager

5. Once MC opens her restaurant there is no more news about it until near the end, rip.

[collapse]

Overall, is a good read to pass some time, I would give it a 3.6 <<less

Spoiler

Ah no shitty drama and the MC and ML are very truthful towards each other. The MC also was able to move on from the 'transmigrated-into-a-novel' setting and was able to live as herself. The bun was cute and was both loved by his parents hehe :3 The ML was not super dominating and overbearing since he understands that the MC doesn't like being spoiled too much with material stuffs (MC is an independent businesswoman). The origFL also didn't show up, which was great though the ML might be right that this story is a parallel world from the novel.

[collapse]

Recommended 10/10 (if you're looking for a light-hearted and fluffy story that would tickle your maternal instincts) <<less

It's not reeeally a 5 stars because it lacks something in character development and pacing... And in subplots, but I don't really consider those all that important for a ~90 chapters fluffy novel.

This novel promises family love and it delivers. It's all about the interactions between this family of three, and other stuff is simply not important, hence the thin plot. Whether or not this is worth reading depends on each reader's wants.

Also, for some reason I REALLY like this ML? He's the standard-cold-CEO-ML but his affectionate side is so...... more>> Nnnghh cuuute. I think the author nailed his vulnerability with how deeply starved for affection he is. The fact he's able to use actual words to communicate is also a big plus for me, who loathes contrived drama. <<less

It's a bit meh
It's not too bad, okay for a light read but there's no conflict which makes the story bland. Halfway past it feels like I'm pushing myself just to finish the story.

What's good here is the interaction and relationship development of the ML and MC. Although there isn't much conflict, it is interesting with how they slowly get used to each other's presence. The ML is responsible and willing to take in the son but does not necessarily immediately falls in love with the MC.

The MC and... more>> son aren't 2D either (compared with other ceo and bun stories) with how MC does not tolerate the son's wrongs and applies strict discipline with him; and the son not being the overly monstrous intelligent type that can code or buy stocks at 5. He's a normal 4-year old that likes toys and superman figures.

The downside with the MC is with her background. It sounded glorious but all it did was to make the MC cook skewers to help the ML find his son.

Overall character interactions is really good but the plot is really dull, world building is really lacking which brought down the score.
This is really for a light read with no complicated background and plot that you have to try and rack your brain to figure it all out. Read it at face value and it's good. <<less

If you don't grow up in an Asian household, you might want to skip this. Because this is not a face slapping/romance novel. This is a novel about parenting, and a pretty good one actually... if you're from an asian family. I get that for some it might be a bit much and sometimes harsh on the kid but trust me, the FL is doing a good job in raising her bun. It's just cultural thing I guess..

Sure the original plot might seem overuse and rushed, but the detail was... more>> good. The ML/FL/baby is strong but not without flaws. The kid still act his age which is good. Although.. plothole: how a 4 yo kid raised with neglect and minimum comunication from his parents can talk fluently is beyond me..

The parenting advise are actually decent. I like how they gave insight on how to comunicate certain topic to children.

Overall, a good light read you might try in between serious novel. <<less

Spoilers Beware

Pretty good story, ngl. The plot is pretty solid and the characters have a decent depth to them. I'd definitely recommend this story to newbie/novice readers that would like a fairly medium sized story to read at their leisure.

The reason why I voted 4 out of 5 stars, though, is because of a few things that dropped the story's quality slightly. Things such as:

  • Poorly Resolved Story Plots.
... more>>
Spoiler

Mainly, this has to do with ML's mother. Considering how ML's mother's new lover treated her, I'm assuming that she doesn't get the happy ending she was initially expecting.

There was also a point in the story where ML told his mother not to regret her choices before she ran off with ML's uncle (... yes, her new sugar daddy was ML's uncle. His third uncle, if I recall correctly). We don't even get to see any type of reaction from ML's mother afterwards, either. So it was kinda like foreshadowing of an event that didn't actually exist in the first place.

Also, what happened to that dude FL "helped" on that island? You know, her lowkey stalker? He was way too persistent. I refuse to think that he gave up so easily.

[collapse]

  • A Convenient Ending.
Spoiler

Due to the synopsis, I thought that there'd at least be some sort of romantic conflict with the Original novel's FL. However, this wasn't really the case. One would probably think that our FL's "end" in her original world wasn't really due to death since it wasn't really explained, so one would also think that Original Host and FL swapped bodies, right?

Whelp, whoopsie! Nope, not the case! (That was sarcasm, btw)

In actuality, the Original Host's soul took over the original novel's FL and we don't really know what happened to the original novel's FL. This points back to reason 1 on the list. The main point, however, is that now the whole drama with the Original FL is conveniently no longer needed. The Original Host merely gets a two/three chapter spotlight along with a fanwai. Which, honestly, explained nothing.

[collapse]

  • Shallow Relationships?
Spoiler

I found the two leads' relationship to be both substantial and shallow at the same time. Now, since I basically binged the mtl, the time progression in the story probably was lost on me. But, in all honesty, them getting together felt a little abrupt to me. They both were so set on not wanting to do anything with each other to suddenly moving in together and cultivating a relationship. It also seemed to me like ML fell a lot harder and a lot faster than FL did. It didn't really give me a sense of equality in their relationship. What salvaged the relationship entirely was that they were willing to communicate to each other.

Moreover, like in many other childcare novels, the presence of the little bunbun seemed to lessen more and more after the leads' relationship was established. Sometimes in this childcare tag, I mainly feel like the children are there as plot points rather than to establish a substantial parent-child relationship. It's kind of a shame, really.

[collapse]

  • Complicated Events
Spoiler

At the end of the story, I asked myself if there was a point to FL having a shop of her own.

Other than making it a (*cough*convenient*cough*) reason for why ML could meet his son, give FL an opportunity to borrow some books in ML's study to show she isn't afraid to "rely" on him, or plant a seed of doubt in ML of FL's true identity, I can't think of much else for why this was necessary.

She bought a house with the money she had leftover from Original Host, and then moved into ML's house afterward without paying a cent in rent shortly after. ML basically gave FL that storefront. Her fame on the internet was like a blooper. She didn't even give a job to her previous employees after moving out of the market. It didn't really serve as a life lesson to Xiao XingXing. I don't know if she was able to successfully expand her business either. So... what was the point?

[collapse]

TL;DR

All in all, though, the story is quite good despite all my nitpicking. The progression of the plot wasn't too drawn out, and I like that it started out strong despite it weaning off a little bit at the end. I feel like there was still more that we could have experienced with these characters, but I'm assuming that Author-san had a maximum amount of chapters that they had to complete the story, so I understand.

It is very nice novel and very short that can be read in a day. There is no big villian or overdramatic novel cliches, so it does not bore the reader. However, there is no charachter development for MC she is the perfect housewife. As the story build your expectations for a substantial development it always ends with "and she started cooking...."

Sweet, cute story.

I loved MC who was really independent and tried to improve her life on her own without (ML or) being agressive or mean about it (like in revenge based stories). She opened stall with food because she was excelent cook in her past life. She planned to open restaurant and go from there. See, she was normal and clever about her life and I really liked it.

ML was not perfect or too Gary Stue. Well, he was male lead after all so there were some not too real... more>> aspects but overall he had his little shortcomings and was better for it, at least in my opinion. I prefere flawed and more real characters. :) Two little cons were: the child was too accepting. Well, too quickly accepting for the things his mum has done in the past (mum aka previous soul), but it was cute in this way so it's not really bummer. The second thing - it was sweet etc but it was little tiring in the end. It was wraped up nicely but maybe a little bit too dragged out.

But I liked it very much and still give it full score for the amazing and sweet relationship between MC and ML which took its time to develope, and between them and little child. He was one of the children who wasn't just sweet and well behaved but real and little bit spoiled too. :) <<less

A light hearted fluffy novel. I kinda agree that ending feels a bit lackluster. Not bad not good either. Still a quite decent novel for this kind of genre (transmigration/villainess/mother/raising child). I think its good to read in your spare time. Mtl also easy.

Cliche genre and theme but the FL finally acts like a mother and a child finally behaves like how annoying child can be. So many CN novels like this makes the FL enter the entertainment industry as a way to survive and their child an angel or... more>> cold stone like typical ML lead. God let the child be a child. Authors need to express how annoying child can be. How s*upid they are. Have other authors ever meet real life children ?

I like the progress of the relationship. I love how the ML doesn't rush to marry with the Fl. He even thought marriage just to give a child complete family may only result of two unhappy adults. I want to cry, finally a sensible ML. A good father who try his best to take care of his child. transmigration part :

Spoiler

they actually talk about FL transmigration ! They TALK !!!! He accept her regardless and he told that this world maybe an alternate world. What happen in the novel doesnt mean it would happen in real life. God I love them both

[collapse]

The child is cute but sometimes annoying. I like this child. I often encounter super intelligent silent stoic emotionless rest bit*h face childs in CN novels. Yes, there are real children out there who not good at expressing their emotion or really super intelligent. But I want more variety in CN novels with these genres.

Cons and what I dislike :

  • What happens to ML's mother and uncle.
  • What happens to the original heroine ?
  • What happens to FL's store and people's reaction to it
  • Rush and lame ending, I think the author can do more better.

I mtl-ed this book in 1 day, so if you are interested in reading it, then I will say go ahead because it's easily machine translatable. There are only a few parts that will make you go wtf.

The bun raising moments were cute. I really liked the early chapters where it was just MC and her bun together. When the ML came, it was still good but the main story shifted to a romance rather than a bun raising plot and I was sad about that because the romance wasn't... more>> that good. It does have a nice and heartwarming story of trying to become a family, and the story gets extra points for having a ML that is not your typical arrogant/rapey/selfish/spoiled/ignorant/rash psycho who thinks that he is the best that that everything has to go his way. MC also gets points for not wanting to mess with the novel storyline and has legit goals (aka to raise her bun). I like it when MC has a goal that she strives for, and I like it even better when this goal is not related to ML or romance. But as I said earlier, the romance was meh. MC and ML already have a kid, so it was about rekindling/rediscovering that romance, but the ML wasn't all that romantic about his pursuit, other than sending her flowers, he didn't really do much. I'm a grand gestures type of gal, I like it when the chase is loud and on your face, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it when it's more quiet and subtle. But in this case, he didn't do much... He just said, 'I will pursue you', then then sent some flowers, and somehow they are together. How...? <<less

Enjoyable read: romance is gradual and natural and the little bun doesn’t suddenly disappear throughout the story. But IMO, the ending ruined it. It seems like the author didn’t know how to end it and tried to make ‘plot twists’ happen. Would’ve been fine and satisfying if it stayed fluffy and simplistic till the end.

Honestly this is more like a 3 but giving points to the ML and also so the rating isn’t too low.

It was an ok read. Kind of cliché, the ending was lackluster. I guess what stands out from this novel is the child. Jiang xingchen was very much a grounded character. From childhood, his character was very much in line with the reality of children of his age. He was sensible yes, but also spoiled, has tantrums normal for children his age. I inversely dislike novels with overly sensible child just so it won't trouble the MC too much. So JXC was the best character in this novel IMO.

Everything else... more>> was just so-so. Nothing really stands out but it wasn't a bad read. <<less

I think this story could be considered as okay. The story was quite simple and sweet but the plot was already overused and made feel that there was nothing new at all from this story.
    • A transmigrator who could quickly get into a mother role and being affectionate instantly towards a child that she met for the first time
    • A 4 yo who didn't act like a 4 yo at all
    • A cold and aloof CEO as ML
Cliche, right? You could find all of things above in other transmigration novel. Don't expect too much from MC and ML either because their characters were so plain and boring. MC was a great cook but there's nothing else about her personality that was memorable enough. The way he treated the child affectionately from the very first day was a bit unnatural and she also could accept her transmigration rather quickly as if nothing will bother her. ML was no different from MC; he didn't have any unique trait that could make me like him and root for him. I also think that his relationship with MC was a bit forced. They seriously lacked of chemistry even though they already interacted with each other for a long time already. As for the child, I think his character was more realistic than his parents. In the beginning, he indeed acted like a mini adult who was so smart and sensible but later he gradually started to act like a true 4 yo who was naughty and spoiled.

Throughout the story, MC and ML were considered a decent parent but there were still some wrong message that were bad for kid's education.

Spoiler

Once, Xingxing wanted to play shooting badly and he began to whine when there's a long line for the game. Instead of advising him to wait in line patiently like other people, ML decided to bribe a person in the front line to let Xingxing play first.

Also one time when Xingxing didn't want to go to school, MC scared him that if he didn't want to go to school, he will end up as a construction worker. I mean, what's wrong with being a construction worker? It's still a legal job and not many people was as lucky as Xingxing; born from a rich daddy and businesswoman. I hate that MC looked down on construction worker job as if it was a lousy job.

[collapse]

The ending was of course a happy ending like many other similar transmigration novels but I thinks there's still some loose ends that was left unexplained:

Spoiler
    • It seemed that the original FL from the original story was Shen Xi, MC's half-sister, right? I don't know if it was really her or not because MC and ML only vaguely mentioned it.
    • Speaking of Shen Xi, it's a bit worrying since her soul was changed to the original Cheng Huan. While she acted nonchalant in front of MC and ML, it was mentioned in the side story that she still harbored ill-intention towards MC but I guess she didn't make it because from Xingxing POV, his parents were still going strong in their old age. However, I still want to know about her ending since the author didn't mention it.
    • I also want to know about ML's mother's ending. It was revealed in the story that she cheated with her own brother in law. What she didn't know was his lover only wanted to use her and didn't love her at all. I want to see her regret after siding with her lover over her own son but till the end, she never apologized to ML.
    • So in the end, who was the one who suppossed to be a 2nd ML? In the original story, 2nd ML was always there for the original FL and even helped her to be together with ML but he wasn't mentioned at all in this story.
    • Xingxing's side story ending was so abrupt and made me think that it's better to not have his side story at all.

THE ROMANCE IS KINDA SO BORING AND SO SLOW. And somehow I wish that the ML is didn't exist and only the heartwarming story interaction of mother and son.

I'm not so interested to the mlಠ, _」ಠ the story are already great even without him. Mother and son can survive without him. Hayss I'm just being annoyed reading the story because of him.

I know he's NOT bad character but the hckk he's really a boring ML I mean my rankings of boring mls he is in #3 in ranking.

I have read a train wreck of a CEO romance novel before this one so my opinion might be biased, but let me tell you, I am so glad that this novel was decent. There was no stalkers/borderline r*pists nor any white lotus/green tea b*tches ... more>>
Spoiler

(although, og. Cheng Huan/now Shenxi was pretty close due to her character. She didn't do anything excessive, though so she gets an okay pass).

[collapse]

I liked the humble and hardworking FL who did her best in being a mother to her instant son. The ML was also likeable as he isn't your usual cold and domineering CEO who is only after the FL and has a rivalry with his own son. Nope, the ML wanted to be a father to his son first and then gradually fell for the Fl. AND he understands the word "no"! He isn't overbearing at all. But both the FL and ML aren't unrealistically perfect. They both have their flaws, too which shows that they are human. I liked that about them.

The fact that the characters acted their age was also pretty impressive, considering that Chinese novels are usually full of genius kids and adults who act like hormonal teenagers. Here, adults acted mature and kids like kids. Such a rare thing.

What I didn't like was the occasional spanking. I just don't like corporal punishment as a disciplinary action used to raise and educate children. I don't like children, but even I wouldn't hit a child. Another thing that bothered me was the fact that we only found out about the outcome of the MIL and her lover (third uncle) in an author's note as an afterthought. It would have been nice to include that in the actual chapter since not everyone necessarily reads the author's comments.

Overall, this novel was a good read. It certainly cleansed my soul that had suffered from previously reading a traumatizingly bad Mary Sue x domineering CEO novel. <<less

Like many of the other reviews for this book I feel the story is good, but just a bit flat. It is very cliche but still easy to read. There was no real omph factor or major conflict that was pressing on the MC. Very standard, transmigrated into a book stuff with cute bits of fluff.
