The Villain’s Contract Lover

Description

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

Little fox demon WanWan died during transcending and ended up transmigrating into a CEO novel. She became Xu WanZhi, the boss villain’s contract lover.

In the book, the boss villain, Mu ZhenYu, was bankrupted by the male lead before the end of the contract.

Seeing that her $50 million dollars had disappeared into thin air, Xu WanZhi juggled the award-winning film emperor and Mu ZhenYu’s brother, giving Mu ZhenYu the reputation of having a girlfriend who was cheating on him left and right.

Nobody had expected the boss villain to turn the table, revive his company, and become an unreachable billionaire. And the first thing he did after turning the situation around? “Taking care” of Xu WanZhi.

WanWan transmigrated to the perfect moment to turn things around; when Xu WanZhi was on Mu ZhenYu’s brother’s bed, and Mu ZhenYu, enraged and bankrupt, was on his way to catch her in his brother’s bed.

Wow. That was exciting!

In order to save herself, WanWan swore that she’d take good care of the boss man.

Conquering the “heroes” behind their keyboards; walking over the male and female leads, face slapping, you name it!

When the contract was up, she wanted to skidaddle out of there. She told him, “I can’t renew the contract with you. My fans don’t like me having a boyfriend.”

He pulled her into his arms. “Okay, so you can’t have a boyfriend, how about a husband?”

ML is overbearing and controlling, which can work sometimes. It does not work in this particular novel. MC is genuinely scared of ML for pretty good reasons. MC's character also somewhat annoyed me; she's supposed to be a 500 year old powerful cultivator that supposedly has seen life-and-death situations many times. However, when facing most situations in which she finds herself in mortal danger, she's annoyingly cowardly and dim. Despite having magic powers and 500 years of knowledge, she is completely submissive to the demanding 20-something ML, which I found... more>> annoying - she needs to grow a spine. The story itself is interesting but I found the main characters' personalities overshadowed it in a negative way. <<less

The ML is so effing controlling I can't continue reading. This is the first time I've written a review where I haven't read at least three quarters or completed it.

I've already read a lot of overbearing ceo type (heck I've just finished reading the bad new wife is a little sweet) but the way the author has written the ML just makes him so ANNOYING

I'll give it another chance next time but for now, nope, gonna chill my ire first.

If you are looking for fluff and willing to suspend your disbelief, this is your novel!

Plotholes you can drive a truck through, and there's also quite a few translating errors that get pointed out in the comments but the translator doesn't follow through and edit.

MC:

... more>>
Spoiler

This novel is ridiculously Mary Sue and yet not in that the Xu Wanzhi is meant to have OP magic powers, but she can't use them because of the ML's presence, so she literally has no power. But her Mary Sue-ness comes out in that she can do a lot of suspicious things and no one ever suspects her.

Basically she is in a contract relationship with the ML, show up at events as his girlfriend and she gets money and work opportunities. Since she wants to earn his trust and not get killed by him, the first thing she does is to forfeit her payment?!?! If I was the ML, I would find that even more suspicious and not trust her! Cause if you don't take the money, that means you want something else right? His shares? His IP? To sabotage him? How is she even a 500 year old demon with this kind of brain?

[collapse]

ML:

Spoiler

I don't like him at all, I know he is meant to be a yandere possessive character, but it's ridiculous how he's acting. He casts judgement on where the MC goes out, what she wears, who she meets and what she does, EVEN when they are not together and he doesn't need her as a shield.

This isn't a love relationship! Why are you acting like the MC should love you and trust you, even when you blatantly don't and send friends out to check on her and report back on her for you? Where's the reciprocation? Any love relationship would also break in the face of this.

Also I don't blame the original MC at all for abandoning him and looking for new sponsors. It's basically a work contract, her presence in return for money. Will you continue working for a company that went bankrupt and can no longer pay you, no matter how nice (or not) the boss was to you? Since he already had her payment set aside safely for her, he should have told her beforehand so she wouldn't have gone to look for a new job. Is it her fault she needs money and people think she is his 'girlfriend' and thus cheating on him?

My rating is 4.5, just rounded it up.

The story is really cute.

The MC is a fox transmigrated in a novel. Her goal is to continue the contract and also keep her life safe so that after 6months she'll be free from the man. Since she knows that Mu Zhenyu tormented Xu wanzhi in the novel.

Whereas the ML has a psychological problem due to his past. I feel bad about him. That's why in the original novel he is cruel when punishing Zhenyu. However, I wish that he slowly fall for... more>> the MC. (Though he did not fall in love fast with MC, just my personal opinion wish there are more scenarios to develop the romance). <<less

Some of the reviews here are so misleading.

Yes. The ML is kind of controlling but not in a manner that would hurt the FL.

On a serious note I have come across many books where the ML's are straight up psychos I swear. But here it is not the case. It is just fluffy moments where there are instances where the ML gets angry.

So far I like the book. I would not say it is the best. It is okay. I just wanted to write this because I almost got misled... more>> by the reviews while deciding if I should read it or not. Glad I did. <<less

It sounds really cute and I think it shows quite some promise. At least I was kind of disappointed when I realised that I had finished the updated chapters. The translators work is as wonderful as her other work that I have read.

The mtl version is good. You'll sometimes forget that you're reading a machine translation because the sentence construction flows well.

It's a good read, it's light and fluffy. I would have given it 5 stars, if not for the disappointing ending arc. The ending was rushed and did not give the readers a chance to indulge in the main leads' romance. (More on this on the spoiler)

Spoiler

The male lead only found out about her identity as a fox towards the end where she saves his life. They did not get into a proper relationship until that point. Although the male lead always expresses his feelings towards the female lead, the female lead did not do the same because of her identity as a fox holding her back. They only removed this block in the relationship at the end of the story. Hence, the readers did not get much chance to read through their romance as an official couple.

One of my favorite novels!! The ML (OG Villain of the novel), takes some time to love he isn't for everyone: the setting for him in the OG novel and the beginning of the story (when the MC takes over) is very frightening. However, he doesn't use violence on the MC, bc if he did I'd drop this story so fast! I grew to adore him as the story continued.

The MC is a typical "revenge-seeking lady", but she is also very laid back and loves sipping coconuts. This is a... more>> very relaxed story, it's well translated and well written. I look forward to the updates EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

The MC is a fox demon that replaces the character Xu WanZhi, her character was cannon fodder that was in a contractual relationship with the villain, and is used to showcase how cruel and unforgiving the ML is, her cruel fate begins when she tries to sleep with the Male lead of the OG story and is caught by the villain Mu ZhenYu (Our new story's ML). And that's where our MC transmigrates, naked in the hotel room with the OG ML, right before the villain catches her cheating. If she wasn't a fox demon, she'd be sooo very dead.

Definitely give this novel a try, and give the ML a chance. I know he is scary at first (OG villain) but learn his background and find out why he is so guarded. He definitely deserves love. BTW the romance between the ML and MC is present but barely there, so don't expect passion because the most "passionate" thing was...😈

Spoiler

A kiss in a club where... huhuhu let me tell you something good. It starts on ch. 114 when Mu ZhenYu's assistant reports that the MC went to an underground bar that ChenYi was at, and our ML rushed over >XD, and ch. 116 is when our ML (Mu ZhenYu) arrives at the bar and sees our MC slap ChenYi, he walks over and WAHAHA "claims" the MC (It was allowed).

THE KISS WILL NOT BE SATISFYING TO YOU (THE READER) UNLESS YOU KNOW THE BACKGROUND. Read the story, learn their relationship, understand the situation between ChenYi and the MC. The kiss is amazing haha BUT only if you read the story. Otherwise, it's just a steamy kiss between two characters and misses that satisfying feeling.

[collapse]

Honestly, I really love this story. The chapters are a little short, but it's so easy to get addicted to reading this. OUR ML IS SOOOOO ADORABLE!! Not Fluffy, but the way he is smug when the MC chooses him instead of someone else. Just read this story, you won't regret it! And don't give up because of the setting for the "villain Mu ZhenYu" because I'll swear to you on this: He never does anything that you fear he might do.

I am the type of reader that views an ML IRREDEEMABLE IF he uses any abuse, has more than one wife, etc. to our MC. I won't stand for it, there are so many novels out there, and I don't need to read about those types of characters. Our ML is not like that so do not worry about it. <<less

Started out good but ended really anti climactic. The plot is pretty predictable and it has all the typical chinese novel tropes.

My only conplaint is that the author forgot a bunch of characters later on. Like theoriginal FL only appeared like once and was forgotten later on and author also forgot about ML's father and his just deserts. Also the original ML was also really incompetent and I can't understand how he even won in the novel.

Anyways, I still had a gteat time reading this so I gave it a... more>> 3. Not the best nor the worst. <<less

It's cute and funny, easy to read story. I enjoyed this

cliffhanger is bad so should wait for finish translate and come back again.

ML have Abusive tendencies.
story start from ML try to catch cheating lover but FL can slip away.

it's a bit weird when FL is fox demon and it's seem she from modern world too? She's adapt well.

FL is very tamed with ML and stay with him so he trust her and start dotting on her more and more.

Tried to finish this, but I just couldn't take it anymore. The plot had so much potential, but the main characters are just not likable to me.

... more>>
Spoiler

The FL is supposed to be a 500-year-old fox demon, but she acts more like a naive teenage girl in your typical shoujo manga. She's a bit of a doormat, especially when it comes to the ML. You would expect someone in her age and with life experience to be more mature, steady, and, even without power, confident.

Meanwhile, the ML is just too contradictory and controlling. He expects her, the FL, to be loving toward him, but they were never in a love relationship in the first place. He's also supposed to be smart, and yet he doesn't question the drastic change in the FL's personality. Plus, I was already in the 106th chapter and still know nothing about his plans to revive his business.

[collapse]

My overall verdict: Intresting premise, disappointing execution and dull main characters. <<less

It's a cute idea and I like the MC, but it's frustrating that everything goes her way immediately. Even her husband who's supposed to hate her enough to kill her changes his tune in just one chapter. I would have liked this novel a lot more if she'd had to struggle a bit more. Otherwise, it's just 100+ chapters of the author showing off how amazing her totally not a self insert OC is, lol.

middle of the road fluff story. noting really happens... I’m getting progressively annoyed with the rhetoric in Chinese novels clearly written by people who have never left china and only know the propaganda... if everywhere/ everyone is inferior to china/ Chinese then simply why leave china at all or do business with other countries? the same old 'foreigners' have blonde hair and blue eyes, cant speak Chinese but the Chinese character can speak any language fluently and foreigners look down of Chinese but the Chinese person will always be far... more>> superior- like really? I get pride and all that but this kind on nonsense is just ridiculous, its time for china to let go of some of these unfounded notions- like who does it help, does alienating everyone else make you stronger? <<less

This novel is a some what okay read for when you have nothing to do. There aren't many chapters but the length of each chapters are some what long.

However the ending left me kind of disappointed. The ending felt rather rushed and the romance between both lead felt forced. The process of falling in love isn't shown so that was sad, could had went into more detail with it but I think the author wanted to end the novel so the romance and ending was skipped.

Tbh I think the thing about her being a charming fox w magic is just too OP. Her character is pretty funny, but I think it would've been better without that element? Basically this story is the classic fluff story

I don't actually have a problem w ML... I mean at the party he went overboard, but generally speaking he did "buy" her in a transaction they both agreed to for a LOT of money.

I don't have complain about how the story unfold. I'm just bothered about some plot holes.

I write a review because I suddenly wanted to know "How can the ML forgive MC? Is it because MC is not the original so MC change and then ML can forgive?"

I'm not against about it. The romance is sweet. I just wonder what would I feel if its a true world, hmmm. Will I forgive her?

I'm giving it 3.5 but I don't want it to roundoff because 4 is too much.

I say, this novel would be very enjoyable without the ML, MC was interesting, she worked it even if the plot was paper thin, she's still likeable.

But I have a problem with the author's take on serious issues like sexual assault.

... more>> It was fluff, alright, but there's not enough fluff to cover the stuff I disliked about the novel, mainly the endless misunderstanding, the lack of communication.

Also, I thank the translator for taking the time, but sometimes it's too hard to understand. <<less

This was really good. I love the fact that she can turn into a fox at will. I also love that this story doesn't drag on and is only 54 chapters, but I kind of want a little more fluff interactions with her in her fox form and human form with the ML. 9/10 WOULD recommend.

The elements played out in this story are nothing new, except the MC is fox spirit who fails to transcend. She is quite chill but not easily bulliable. And, just like everyone else in this genre, she only yearns for being alive.

ML has yandere aura although he doesn't cross the line so far. Taking his past into account, his behaviour is still reasonable. Also, in the original novel (the book MC is transmigrated to), ML is writen as villain. It will be weird imo if he behaves like civilized gentleman.... more>> After all you have been warned by the title of this story.

What should I say more? It's light and short. Something you can read in the middle of lunch break. But that's all. The world setting is too narrow to make any comprehensive review. It doesn't even explain how a spirit gets in touch with a novel with modern day setting. <<less
