This Alpha’s Pheromones Are Exploding

Qiu Jin transmigrated into a book once again.

Last time, he transmigrated into an omega with pheromones that could make people go crazy. This time the heavens were merciful and finally had him transmigrate into an alpha. Moreover, it was the sexiest alpha in the entertainment circle.

Unfortunately, it was a cannon fodder.

The main gōng in the original book was Ji Shenxiao, an aloof tyrant CEO. He was alpha to the max. His self-control was so strong that no matter how omegas tried to seduce him, he would remain unmovable like a mountain. Until he met the protagonist omega shòu, which activated his second vein and turned him into the fiercest gōng dog.

And Qiu Jin was the cannon fodder alpha that competed with Ji Shenxiao. Arrogant and despotic, he tried to forcefully take, and grandly lost. He challenged the protagonist’s bottom line again and again. In the end, his gland was destroyed, and his family fell into destitution.

In this regard, Qiu Jin expressed that he would not be a toxic alpha male, so protagonist you go scram. However, humans could not defy the fates, and just when Qiu Jin was striving to become a high-quality alpha, the pheromones that made all the alphas go crazy in the last world came back!

At that moment, he saw the protagonist gōng suppressing his desires till his eyes were red, and his pheromones went out of control.

Qiu Jin swallowed: “Bro, let’s talk this out…”

The alpha squeezed the back of his neck, his voice hoarse: “But I prefer to do it directly.”

Love rivals become lovers. Alpha becomes omega.

I give this story a 4.

Actually, the story is not bad, it's pretty good, but not well made. The plot is a little bit messy and for some reason really rushed. We get in the climax around the c60 and after that it just focused on MC and ML.

The two protagonists get on my nerves, especially the MC. He looks so smart, but when it comes to ML it becomes super dense.

... more>>

I was very angry with him wanting ML to continue mark him and being good and a friend to him even though he has just rejected the ML. But, in general, the MC is good, that alone left me a little frustrated.

And about the plot, I could already have an idea of ​​who the antagonist was, we just didn't know why he liked the MC instead of the Original protagonist, but even when it was discovered I didn't feel much about it. Mainly because we didn't know much about the MC's previous life, Just one chapter I guess? Or even less than one chapter is all what we about this, so for the plot have impact we needed to know more about his previous life.

In addition, the world building is a little confusing too, there is not really a explanation about the different omegaverse characteristics in the story and the disease of the MC (Somlia? I think it's the name) was well presented at the beginning, but then we no longer heard about it.


So, to conclude, I think it could be a good novel, if it had been given more thought, but it was still a good read, so I give it 4 stars. <<less

I love both MC and ML. They are all reasonable characters and their relationship progress is done really well.

Kinda confused though about the abo world in this story, because it seems like second differentiation is kinda common? Like the MC and ML just accept the gender change and be done with it.

MTLed the entire story.

It's a pretty good romance. MC & ML slowly fall for each other though ML is the first to confess. MC is extremely good at acting, good at cooking and was a singer in his previous life, so is good at singing as well.

There's no angst or drawn out villain scenes. Basically, the villain gets sorted out on his own, the potential villains become great friends haha. It's pretty sweet.

Best part - No forced marking/ r*pe using the excuse of 'in heat/ estrous'. Even though MC's scent... more>> is supposed to drive everyone from ALL genders into a hear frenzy without fail, the ML bites himself hard and keeps biting until MC's heat goes away! Basically, he LOVES and RESPECTS MC! He is possessive but not too much. He only puts his feet down in movies where MC has intimate scenes. But otherwise it's a simple and cute love story between two people who admire and respect each other to the core. <<less

I MTLed the next dozen chapters and I gotta say I'm impressed.

Our MC has transmigrated before, and in his last life he was an omega. This time he is an alpha, a scummy celebrity who was sexually harassing an omega.

Immediately, he stops his behaviour and apologizes, and works to improve his image. On one hand there's a subplot where the omega is wary and doesn't quite believe the MC has changed, before slowly realizing the guy has improved. On the other hand there's the relationship between our MC and the... more>> ML.

I appreciate that the MC's omega pheromones take a while to show up and we spend a lot of time with him as an alpha. The author slowly sets up a relationship with the ML that evolves naturally instead of immediately bringing out the pheromones and creating a 'lust at first sight' situation.

I was also really surprised that there is another small subplot I didn't see coming, about changing society and the way it trivializes harassement of omegas, claiming omegas are just being 'too sensitive'. Normally I don't like social justice in the stuff I read because I want escapism, not to be preached at. However I found it was handed very well in a way I haven't seen other Asian webnovels manage.

As a whole the story is well-written and really a hidden gem. <<less

The beginning and end of this novel were decent, if only the frustrating and meandering middle portion of the novel were cut out.

At first MC is a sassy independent character, but somewhere in the middle he loses his brain and turns into a damsel in distress, needing to be rescued by the endlessly patient ML over and over while the author chases word count. I lost track of the number of times ML showed up in the nick of time to rescue MC from the predatory antagonist, only for MC... more>> to friend-zone ML. There were a few times where MC practically delivered himself into the antagonist's mouth, with no sense of danger whatsoever. Quite careless of someone who used to be a cautious omega.

Poor ML, he's wasted on this dense, apathetic MC. Even the side characters notice something's up, only MC remains willfully ignorant.

MC does a full 180 and regains his sanity once they finally together 90% of the way through the novel, but at that point, he's already too far gone. It's impossible to redeem his character. Let's not mention the numerous plot holes in this novel.


For instance the antagonist made some legendary drug that can change an Alpha to an Omega, yet nobody else seems to know what it is.

Somehow this antagonist is MC's former best friend from his previous transmigration who crossed over 18 years prior to MC yet somehow knew the exact moment MC transmigrated into this world despite having no contact with the original owner. But don't worry, some random ass person comes out of nowhere to deal with him before he disappears, never to be seen again.

Also, the fact that MC changes into a completely different persona yet none of his friends or family think anything of it.

Or the fact that sometimes ML finds MC's pheromones irresistible yet at other times is unable to perceive them because of his pheromone disorder... Which is it?


Alas, at least the side CP is cute... <<less

To be honest, when I read the synopsis and saw the number of chapters, I wasn't expecting much.

And I was right to do so.

I feel like this is an author's first work, the kind when you read a really good book and want to impulsively write the same genre only to find out its hard writing.

That aside, the storys okay. If I could describe it in a few words it would be "There for convenience and unnecessary ". Basically, some elements in the story is there for convenience and other... more>> elements is just there floating in the backdrop.

As for the main characters, they're 1 dimensional. You'd think a person who's lived two life times going onto his third to be mature but no, the author decided to make the MC similar to Xiang Xi in the later chapters.

Now, the side characters have some development but its not that great. To be specific. Some of them don't show up for 10+ chapters and then they suddenly turned over a new leaf.

The story isn't bad but the elements that make the story stand out too much for me to ignore. I think I did pretty well holding out until chapter 78.

That's it.


Enjoi and Adieu! <<less

It's cute.

Slow romance.

Great ABO novel. MC transmigrates 3 times and this story is about his 3rd transmigration.


ML is gentle and respectful to MC. There's actual consent. And he protects MC against others that are evil.

This was just so fluffyyyyy uwu..

The MC transmigrated for the 3rd time. Nothing is mentioned about his original world, but his 2nd world traumatised him and rightly so. It was an Omega's nightmare.

In the 3rd world, he became an Omega again, but with a better mentality to guard himself. It also helps that he has a golden thigh to hold on to.

If you like your ML to be a top Alpha-CEO-cold-domineering-possesive type, this novel is for you. If you like your ML to be a doting-gentle-sticky-no misunderstanding-cute vinegar jar, this... more>> novel is for you. If you like your ML to be able to seek consent and even waiting properly for his Omega to be ready and clear headed before shagging him, then THIS. IS. YOUR. MF ML.

There's also a cute side couple in the end that I wish Author made a full story of, but no. <<less

Honestly think this was well done. Even if some parts of the plot weren’t developed properly....... more>>

For example, the backstory between the stalkerish tentative second lead and MC wasn’t very answered. I would also like a bit of background on the MC himself. Honestly his past would help mold his character more dimensionally

The romance definitely was. If you like a very respectable male alpha, a MC who knows what he wants and doesn’t do s*upid sh*t but still is human, along with side characters that aren’t all evil and have some dimensions to themselves too, this novel is for you. It’s a nice read to relax your brain.

However, you do have to MTL. But this is a super easy MTL (this was my first time completing a novel using MTL) and I don’t think it will take away from your experience that much. <<less

Overall, I liked the story and plot. It was entertaining to read even if the plot and characters were not very outstanding nor memorable. But then again, I have read a lot of omegaverse/bl stories and my memory is sh*tty so that might be just me.

Either way, both the MC and ML are likeable and so are the side characters. A big plus from me for not making the MC the dense, clutsy, cutesy type. I mean, sure he is a bit dense when it comes to the Ml's feelings... more>> towards him at first and he does get caught during embarrassing moments often by the Ml, but as someone from a non-omegaverse world and a former alpha he retains his strength and didn't become a damsel in distress as soon as he became an omega.

There is but one evil antagonist who is quickly disposed of which makes for a very drama-free and smooth story progression. The story mainly focuses on the relationship between the two leads so people who are looking for romance and dog food will get their fair share. <<less

I was looking for something fluffy and soothing to get me back in the mood for something hard to read. In the first part, I find the story interesting and it gave me the feeling I wanted, in the middle of it, I was kinda getting annoyed with the MC sometimes and thought of dropping it, but nuh its only a short story not even a hundred, so I persisted and with the last part, the only thing I find satisfying was that the sweet love of Xiang Xi. I... more>> dig into that. That was cute. It actually saved my view on this. I love his partner and him. ?❤️ <<less

At first, I thought that I would get disappointed by the MC's attitude despite his actual age 30 (but the novel qui Jin is only 21) but I was not!!

And MC is so hilarious. He has 3 lifetimes (2x transmigrated NOT 3x) : original world, world where he was an O, and the another world (novel) where he was an A->O.

The ML is your typical Gary Sue. I like him for his self control and dislike him for being cunning (end of Jiang ming). Also, although he didn't mark... more>> nor force himself to MC yet, he kept teasing the MC, kissing him deeply at the makeup room in the shooting without letting the MC go.. etc. Anyway this is an ABO so it's understandable

I like this novel due to it's plot and well written scenes "per chapter". But a little disappointed with the story of Jiang ming. I don't know what happened to other chara, eg Jiang ming and his brother etc. And MC's story in other worlds are not stated much. Only..

original world where he lived with his grandpa and become an actor emperor at his 30. Second world, where he was an omega and also an actor and has a friend named Duan... (forgot the whole name) which is also Jiang ming here. Duan planned to live with MC in an island etc... but they died of plane crash. And this 3rd world, where he was an A that become an O

The MC is a scum shou. I dislike his type of shou the most. I get that he's traumatized by his previous transmigration but like, he's freaking 30 something, and claimed to be mature with high EQ. Sheesh. ML is wasted on him.

The side CP is better. It's the redeeming factor of the novel.

Anyway, it's a good ABO story. I just don't like the MC. The other characters are good.

It was a good novel, I also liked that in this novel the original protagonist (not the MC, the one from the novel the MC transmigrated) was a good guy and did not interfere in the MC and ML relationship, the only downside is that the MC is really low in EQ, the romance between the MC and ML do not start until chapter 63, almost the end of the novel, before that there is some romance but is all from ML part and the MC did not notice, really... more>> frustrating. At least after chapter 63 the romance is very sweet and is everywhere. <<less

it was pretty ok. I think that if the author explored some arcs more and didnt rush the plot, it wouldve been more moving. As it stands now, the novel is a good read if youre bored and have no other novels on your reading list. The mtl was easy enough, and the main cp was sweet. It just really felt rushed. The MC was an alpha for all of like ten chapters, and when became an omega there was no emotional attachment or depth of feeling. But thats just... more>> the kind of novel you get with 79 chapters, I guess. <<less

I gave it a 5 because it's very enjoyable in some ways. In other ways, especially in term of romance, this made me a bit impatient. I hate it when MCs are super dense. This one had a good head on his shoulder in the beginning, but became the typical 'too dense to understand ML's feelings or ambiguous touches from others'. It's difficult for me to believe that an adult, one that lived their previous life as an omega, has trouble understanding ambiguous touches from the antagonist. And he... more>> actually speculates that the ML is pursuing him, only to throw that idea just for being an escapist.

The summary gives a very different impression of the ML than he really is. I love the ML. He can be overbearing, but that's due to his background and family status. He's not forceful with the MC (at least not until ch 55) and he's very patient. Wish there were more alpha MLs like this one.

At ch 55, the romance is still quite ambiguous. I liked the slow pace at the beginning but I got annoyed with the MC's escapism. I hope they get together soon. <<less

This novel is okay. I think what ruined this novel was that MC basically replaced the Xiang Xi (protagonist shou). I hated that:
... more>>

MC basically let Jiang guy (alpha) see his glands so easily just to prove that he is an omega. MC has read the novel and understand that this Jiang guy is crazy and yet he easily showed his glands to him. Of course he also gained this dude’s interest too so now he got crazy alpha and a possessive gentle ML chasing him. MC is oblivious to the Jiang dude’s approaches as well. I get that he is here to move the plot along but it ruins MC’s image for me. There were also scenes where other people smelled MC’s pheromones as well. I would have thought MC would have done a much better job at hiding this since he has done it in his previous life.

Backgound: MC supposedly was a famous omega in his past life with special glands that makes people go crazy whether mated or not. This continued onto his current life. They originally portrayed MC as someone who is very cautious.


The ML is my favorite character as he does his best for MC. He is sweet to MC. It really took MC near end to realize his feelings and accept ML. <<less

Very very cute and fluffy story. No third party, no conflict. Okay maybe just a bit of drama, but the villain is not too bad, give up after a warning from ml. Very few face slapping. However it is a very good drama. But this story had a really good humour, I had a good laugh while reading this. The candies is delicious and there is sweets everywhere. Slow romance but hot action. Not 18 rate, just a nice sexy scene here and there.

... more>>

the MC had a actor job as an officer, to experience it, he go to ML office acted as an assistant for a month -make up his face so that he don't appear like MC (MC is popular, he cannot just show up bare face on the company) . And the staff was shocked that their boss is scum, cheating on MC 😂😂, and then while ML prepared to defiled MC on his table, his brother come flying by the door angry to see this scene and scolded his brother for cheating. After a lot of chaos, MC wipe his make up 'it me, the mc'. The brother was dumbfounded 😂😂
