The Villain’s Mother


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

Upon waking up, Ruan Xia had transmigrated into a webnovel that she had stayed up all night to finish reading. She had become the villain’s mother.

In the novel, after the death of her first husband, the original owner of the body had hooked up with a Mr. Perfect at the fastest possible speed. Worried and discontent that her son from her first marriage would become a burden on her, she heartlessly abandoned her son.

Having once held the best quality script and informed of future events, Ruan Xia looked at her still alive first husband as well as her future villain son. She sighed. She wanted to apply for a different script!

The premise isn't bad. Not novel but not bad and I usually like this type of story but literally nothing is happening. I held on until chapter 39 to make this comment because I kept thinking something might happen. This is super boring. I only gave it 3 stars and not less because maybe it'll get better in the future but for now, it's not progressing at all.

The way I judge whether a story has a good pacing and progress or not is that if I skip 10 chapters or... more>> so, if I don't feel like I missed anything then the author has miserably failed. If I feel lost after skipping them then it's good because that means things have truly developed in the part I skipped. For this, I could read chapter 1 and then chapter 39 and I wouldn't feel any progress <<less

A very slice of life, heartwarming story, where MC and ML actually talk to each other and cause no needless misunderstandings. MC's feelings are portrayed very realistically - she doesn't become the ideal mother and wife as soon as she transmigrated, and took her time to get used to the new life. ML's initially too uninterested in personal life, and doesn't care that he basically lives with a stranger, but with the transmigrated MC, he starts paying attention to his son's mother and then to his wife. There is no... more>> sudden overflowing of emotions, but a gradual shift from plastic marriage to a real marriage. The little guy is cute and provides some comedy, though too smart/adult at times - a common thing for C-novels. <<less

This story is so good. Can I just say I love the ML so much. No r49e, patience and communication. The romance is steady and the couple's feelings for each other are well and truly earned.

Baby ofcourse is very cute and lovable. I loved that he was smart but not some 400IQ bullsh*t mutant.

This novel was more satisfying than 3000+ epics.

Very enjoyable read.

I love how calmly the couple faces their challenges. Instead of big drama from every small interaction, they were chill and, could you imagine that, they talked. Yes. Instead of assuming the worst of each other, they actually trusted each other and then when facing a problem, they talked calmly and solved it, unlike most novels where they'd just be mad and drag the simple misunderstanding forever.

Just freaking love when characters act like sensible human beings.

If I had to nitpick about the novel,... more>> it would be that the characters were quite bland. At start I didn't really notice, but the closer to the endi realise that, yes, the main characters are realistic, but both didn't really have anything unique about them. Another thing is that the child is way too smart for a 4 year old. Some times he acts like an adult, but another time he's more childish than a normal child his age. But well, both these things didn't really bother me, it was still a very good read.

If you like romance genre, definitely recommend reading this. <<less

Have been reading it raw and I really enjoyed it. This novel is probably not for those readers who wanted an overbearing CEO nor cheesy romance.

It might be dull and boring for some but it's exactly within my taste.

... more>>

Before the transmigration of the protagonist, the original's relationship with her husband (male lead) is in name only. She married and got pregnant with the male lead just so she could have a human cash machine. She doesn't care about her child nor her family.

And after the female lead took over she decided to maintain the status quo with her husband. Neither approaching nor avoiding. Not hold or cold and so does the male lead. They treated each other as dormmates. OF COURSE THEY WILL WARM UP TO EACH OTHER GRADUALLY.

In regards to her child and her family, she started to improve her relationship with them

This is a very simple and light read. Main focus is around the development of the relationship between the FL with her family (ML and son). I particularly like how both parties are very calm and logical, so misunderstandings either don't occur, or are resolved immediately. There is not extreme feelings, nor does it evoke extreme feelings in the readers. However, it does give a very heartwarming feel.

The story itself can only be described as an okay read, it's not overly fluffy & romantic, but at the same time it's not angsty/depressing either. The saving grace of this novel and my reason for not dropping it was the FL's son, he was a little cutie and the sole reason that there was ANY development between the leads! Other than that though, this story was rather underwhelming with not much plot to keep you interested. I did end up completing it so it wasn't a major snoozefest, but... more>> I wouldn't necessarily recommend this novel. <<less

This story isn't bad, to be honest, and the translator did a great job. It's just that the story and the characters are bland. The thing is, people love the trope and genre the story follows, so it's easy for people to get into it, the challenge this story fails to overcome is how to make people stay. That is to say, other than the trope and genre itself, the story isn't very compelling and makes it difficult for readers to care.

The MC who is supposed to carry the story... more>> is an empty sheet. There's always a hint of her interesting and pragmatic personality, but it just doesn't push through her actions and is so subtle it hurts. She's supposed to be aloof and quite the modern woman and there's so much potential there but it felt like the writer was hesitating or just was not able to show that aspect of her in her actions as MC is just not consistent with her thing.

There's also potential with ML but jezuz christ he has the presence of a day old dust and it's so difficult to see where MC and ML would fit with each other. They seem too similar it's like having to marry yourself. It's like seeing someone play two people with slight past differences who are simply okay with not talking. Sure, comfortable silence is nice, but there's only so much one can take of it without it becoming a denial of each other's existence. <<less

It was good actually. But like some other reviews, some parts are missing. I dont know how tk explain it properly. The fact that her soul feels so emotionless and one dimensional makes me... feel weird.

I just finished reading this.

I'm really in love with this novel. It's the right kind of chill and sweetness for me. No drama. Problems easily solved. It's right in every way. It's funny and cute... The characters are very likable for me... But the MC is a bit too realistic, which is alright, but I wish she could be more... Hmmm... (I don't know what to call it) a bit more like an "mc"... I don't know if that made sense.... Anyway, the ending was just fine but I'm... more>> still thirsty for more and I find it a bit lacking..


I wish they had a second child. But I understand her reasoning so it's okay....

Also, this is weird but I made a fic in my head about that qin guy and his ex wife... Hihihi I i real am just a sucker for second chance stories and reincarnation stories sksksk....


The ML for me is 100/10.

He's the best. He's kind, he's gentleman, he's smart and calm, he knows sh*t better than anyone, he's adorable and dreamy... Arghh I wish I had a man like him... Huhuhuhu

Well.. what I really wish for is a sequel or a Spin-off.. idk.. anything to satisfy me <<less

I mainly read it because of the childcare tag - and it wasn't disappointing. I love their little fatty son - very cute, funny and mature at the same time.

... more>>

I also like that the MC and the ML had a slow romance and not like other novels where they only see each other once and BAM - true love. The MC was realistic and she didn't immediately stick herself to her husband, but instead gradually learned about him and fall in love. The ML also first only cared about his son, but respected his wife even if they were indifferent at first.

I also feel very emotional at the end when I learned the reason the MC did not want to have another child. ( ̄^ ̄) ゞ

This is not bad but I feel this missing something.

At this point, I’m not sure if this is a personal preference or something in the story just leave me unsatisfied.

This is a story of two very indifferent people trying to create a family. The FL is not as bad as the description shows. She is just too realistic. The ML is also not the perfect ML as some people has stated. It almost feels like two monks getting together and making a family. That’s how emotionless this story can be.... more>> There is some but it comes in near the end.

This does have a HE so go in without any reservations if the premise is interesting. There really is no ups and downs here, just a flat line with the occasional blips just like a heart monitor with the occasional heart beat. Again, this is not bad if you have read all the other better novels here. <<less

The most realistic transmigration novel I've read. The FL and ML communicates well and has almost no misunderstandings and the pace is slow and steady

This story has its moments and it's quite a good read. The development of their relationship is interesting because of both protagonists' mindset and their initial relationship dynamics. The scenes with their little boy is also very cute and funny. A good read for everyone who likes family stories.

I MTLed the novel and finished it within the day.

If you are looking for a short and sweet story then this novel is for you. There’s no heavy conflict/ drama in this novel which kinda makes it a bit boring. But, the story is sweet and the interaction between the FL and ML is just right, you can’t help feeling a little bit unsatisfied with the ending.

Overall the story is good and is a nice read if you want to past time while waiting for your favourite novels to update..

The novel is a simple read. It doesn't give off any strong emotions of angst, comedy, actio, drama, etc. It's just a story of a girl who lives a boring single life of work and home transmigrating into a novel she's read and her experience of how she eventually became a integral part of a very normal family from a bystander who's got absolutely nothing to do with them.

The story starts with her decision to continue to act as a nominal wife to the ML and acting like a kind... more>> aunt to the son and ends with her realising how she's already adapted to thinking like a mom and falling in love and having a fulfilling life with her husband.

The characters in the story are very normal and not too OP like every other novel out there. The MC is normal and besides saving ML at the beginning does nothing too extraordinary.

The ML is just a 35 y.o guy who's achieved his current status and wealth through sheer determination and hardwork given the fact that he had no favourable conditions like a golden spoon or protagonist's golden thumb.

The son is just a smart 4 y.o and not a genius of the millennium. He is just smarter than his peers in his logical thinking and reasoning abilities.

I think it's a decent read with not much masala to excite the readers or boring enough to drop it halfway. <<less

Finished reading this (Well MTL). I will edit more when the translation is completed to understand their feeling more.

As of 04 Jan 2020. I said this novel to be very very simple and plain, but whenever translator up dates, I find myself to read the up date chapter and proceeds to MTL again. I dont know how many times I have done it.

The idea is very cliche but the delivery/the way the author wrote this and mixed light comedy into the writing without too much is making the... more>> novel interesting to read.

There's nothing but simple plot. Villain or love rival is there, but quick to resolve too.

Basically, the whole novel is about how they're making their life, and how they're getting to know each other (wife, husband and son). <<less

The story is really. This is not a heart wrenching, face slapping kind of story. Hell the romance is also not extreme. But it's very heart warming. Simple but very good. Some people might find it boring but for me it is quite good. Please give it a try.

This is interesting and sweet novel. I am hooked up. This novel remind me of The Villain and the Cannon Fodder's Mother which is my favorites novel. I gotta mtl it now.

I am current at 28 chapter, very slowly relationship develop between MC and her husband, stranger to normal conversation. Their married life is loveless but they respect each other, sleep separated room. MC prevent accident omen that kill husband. Like their interact.

This is slow romance, it's also great novel. First husband is decent, loyal, even though he may not... more>> love his wife but he is very loyal, mature and responsibility, know to keep distance from women. He is good father who love and dote his son and give best to him. Like how MC trying to became perfect mother for her son.
But I like smart and sensitive son. He is good child, I feel sad for his past life.

Recommend this gem sweet and heartwarm novel. <<less
