Description

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

Li Cheng is an omega, but he is thoroughly like an alpha.

He regards teachers like friends, is unrivalled in the swimming pool and also has 80 betas as his lil’ brothers.

One day, Li Cheng loudly declares ⸺ He’s determined to win the campus male god alpha Xiao Yiheng over. He must become his!

“Xiao Yiheng is smart, handsome, and tall! Moreover, he has long legs and a perky butt. His strong XX capability can be seen with just a glance! Only this kind of alpha is worthy of me!”

Long-legged, perky-butt, and has strong XX capability Xiao Yiheng: “……”

To show his determination, Li Cheng proclaims that he would give him a love bento every morning.

The next day, Li Cheng stayed up all night playing games and can’t get up.

The third day, Li Cheng danced the night away with others and can’t get up.

The fourth day, Li Cheng fought with the gang from the neighbouring school and can’t get up.

Then came the fifth day… The sixth day… The seventh day…

Just when Li Cheng is just about to forget his plan of courting the male god, Xiao Yiheng obstructs him inside one of the locker room’s cubicles before his swimming training.

“Xiao Yiheng, w-what do y-you want with Laozi?”

“Because I was waiting for your lunch box, I haven’t eaten breakfast for a whole week.” Xiao Yiheng had a cold expression. With a fake smile, he continued, “But… Your pheromone smells quite delicious.”

I'm think it's a nice ABO romance, I say that because I'm normally disappointed with some ABO novels, but it's sweet and fun.

i must say, this is one of the most satisfying abo novel i've read thus far... sure, Xiao Yiheng had some behaviors that were a bit dislikable in the beginning, and (to be fair) it goes the same for Li Cheng as well, however, the story was very satisfying, and was able to illustrate how these two characters evolved along the way... it isn't the fluffiest, but if you're looking for a strong (headstrong) omega, then read this, don't let some of the bad reviews deter you from enjoying this... more>> little treasure... I think this has one of strongest o character so far, and the author did not focus on their weakness but more on how the character continuously worked hard to overcome how others viewed him because of his second gender... <<less

I saw a review on jjwxc that the novel was a bit lacking and was nearly persuaded to not read this.

But!!! The writing style is fluent and has a reasonable flow of events. The descriptions evoke vivid imagery. It is meticulous, humorous and interesting.

Plot-wise, on one hand, this is a story about two outstanding boys falling in love. Super duper sweet and loving; On the other hand, this is a story about two youths walking towards their dreams.

... more>>
Spoiler

One would be a world champion in swimming who triumphed over gender discrimination through hard work while the other would be the most talented in the new generation of painters who managed to completely break away from his straight A cancer* parents.

*Refers to alphas who think that they are supreme. Alpha "chauvinists", if you will

[collapse]

If this can't be regarded as a good novel, that reviewer on jjwxc will definitely miss the opportunity to read a lot of good novels. <<less

Li Cheng is such a mood, there are times where the greatest things ever just came out of his mouth and caused me to wheeze.

Li Cheng and Xiao Yiheng don't just fall in love right away but instead it takes times to build up their relationship and it's very satisfying to read.

Update: I came back after finishing the book.

... more>>
Spoiler

I was a bit disappointed that when he left his parents he didn't take the Gold Medal that Li Cheng gave him earlier in the book with him.

When Li Cheng won and broke the WORLD RECORD at the CHAMPION, I was so happy and almost cried! I was so proud just like a mom watching her son.

Also, Xiao Yiheng exposed his parents for gender discrimination at their work place. Karma hits hard!


Xiao Yiheng also showed off that he made a permanent mark with Li Cheng in the face of the guy that was chasing him and he was pissed saying stuffs like, "I don't believe you" "He and I are the perfect match". Sorry to break your bubble, dude, but Li Cheng is Xiao Yiheng's only.
[collapse]

Anyway, I'm glad that they have a happy ending. <<less

I was hoping this would be like the short story of ShaoWang and as a result I was bitterly disappointed. This is absolute sexist tr*sh. The author takes a bold and fierce Omega and forces him to submit to an arrogant a**hole Alpha who definitely does not deserve it. XY -"So what if the little wild cat had a bad temper? If he continued petting, stroking and cuddling him, there would surely be a day when the lil’ wild cat trusted him and depended on him. That was an irresistible... more>> attraction to all owners." There's so much wrong with this metaphor, we'd be here all day if I actually unpacked it all. But I will say that it's disgusting that this jerk thinks he can be LC's owner. Just gross. If you have even a spark of feminine pride, you'll think this is just as disgusting as I do. <<less

this can be easily turned into a live-action BL drama. There's enough scenes of the plot that can make this into hilarious, interesting BL drama adaptation.

imagine a flashy, loud, school brawn omega who belongs to the school swim team (that's why he can get away with not studying seriously, he earns the school so many sports medals and trophies) proudly declares in any given chance his goal of getting a world championship meeting a cold, silent, straight-A alpha (also earns a lot of academic medals and trophies) who is hiding... more>> his actual dream career because of his overbearing parents.

their first meeting all the way to them reaching their dream goals are well-written and 'action-packed'. The dialogues are funny and believable. All the characters are vivid and three-dimensional.

it's a recipe for a romcom sprinkled with a tiny bit of angst and soaked with hilarious and cute moments.

and boi, the story is truly funny at times, mostly because of our omega MC. The last time I laughed so much because of chinese webnovels, it's when I was reading Love Stops Rumors and Everyone Thinks I Like Him. Come to think of it, this novel has the same funny and cute vibe of Everyone Thinks I Like Him though the characters here are a bit younger. If you like how well fleshed out the characters in ETILM, then you'll like this story as well.

i rarely read a/b/o stories but this one is a must read if you're up for something to warm your heart. Both MC and ML are well fleshed out, even the side characters. I find myself cheering MC and ML, emotionally committed to their own ambitions. They don't hinder each other's careers nor overstep. Sometimes I lose interest the moment the couple in a story gets together but I read this until the end (and the extra chapters) because I'm really emotionally invested at them at this point. Lol. <<less

Full stars for this novel. I like the pair MC&ML. Their relationship development is good, but it's not disrupt their passion that they want to relize. Our MC is a muscle brain omega with strong personality and an orphan. He the kind of school gang boss, but talented swimmer, respected by his Bros and classmates. And our ML a standard gong sue, handsome in face, academic and economic minus his over too strick robotic parent. But I think he is pretty friendly. Just like a popular guy in your school... more>> with everyone surround him but still feel distant, not the kind of social brothers.

Eventhough our ML have a nature alpha who want to dominate his partner, but he never step on the mc's dream. Because that's what makes MC shine and what make ML attracted to MC. The ML have to sue his dream too. Of course ML a bit black bellied, thinking how to claim his omega and make him sit still as his.

I like the supporting roles, like MC's bro and ML's friend who misunderstand their relationship, their teacher who support them, the cute MC sister who a lil pro playgirl, even the Canon fodder who chasing after MC. They pretty much bringing the fun of the story. Some villain still hatefull. But thats what the need of the story.

After all, this is one of the best Abo novel to me, with light plot and joyfull. If you like sweet and fluffy but fresh and not greasy, I think this one is good choice to read <<less

This is the first eveer I am reviewing a novel. I read it via mtl and just regeret that it ended too soon.

I write stories myself and this one has given me enough inspiration and motivation. The feeling of youthful recklessness and strong determination are hidden in the humour of the story. At the start I did not realise the depth of the story until I finished reading it, did I understood, the feeling of deep love and the grandness of life are hidden in this story.

I would like to... more>> talk about main characters too. But infact I find myself unable too say anything because my intelactual level is too low.

I have read at least thousand of online chinese novels. And some of them were very great. Assistant architect is one of the best.

I believe writer of this story must be great as a person.

Tahnkyou very much for writning this story. I know I did not describe what happenes in the story and people won't find this review useful but I just want to thank the author. And the story is just like it's name a "sweet and wild surprise". <<less

5/5 ☆ Omegaverse. THIS NOVEL DESERVES MORE ATTENTION!!!

A super hot chili boss omega MC X cool and artistic alpha ML. I like how the MC is tough and an athelete while the ML is more detail-oriented and a painter which is the opposite of most BL novels. NOT CLICHÉ and I really got attached to them ♡ FLUFF-PACKED, great writing, and the best character development! (Li Cheng 爱 Xiao Yiheng)

Def one of the very few novels I'd rate 5 stars, I HIGHLY recommend reading this <33

Such an adorable novel. The translation is amazing, but it was hard to wait for chapters so I MTLed immediately. Truthfully, I had dropped the novel at chapter 2 because those were the only chapters translated when I first read it. I thought that it wouldn't be worth waiting for, so I left the novel alone for several months. I then finally came back and absolutely do not regret it.

I loved the dynamic between the MC and the ML. MC is a tough and strong omega, which I personally really... more>> enjoyed. The ML is just the average untouchable male god that you see in most novels with the school setting. The ML fell for MC rather quickly, but it wasn't too spontaneous or rushed in my opinion. I did see his character development as the story progressed and I adored watching him grow as a person.

Here's some spoilers if you want more elaboration:

Spoiler

The ML's relationship with his parents is a large plot point in this story. His parents are extremely controlling and see him as a puppet to fulfill their unaccomplished desires rather than as their child. I saw how much he realized he needed to break away from them after he fell in love with the MC. It was a relief when he broke away and built a new life for himself. He sent his parents to prison for their crimes (I'll leave this unelaborated, let's just say they were very bad at their jobs). I wish we could've seen more from them to close off that chapter, but they didn't appear anymore after that. I get it though, as the author probably wanted to focus of the relationship of the MC and ML.

[collapse]

I won't summarize any overall plot, as to not spoil the story too much, but:

Spoiler

In the extras, they have a kid! I love how MC still held his confidence and kept the same attitude even though he had a child. It just shows how solid of a character he is, especially since I find many MC's tend to become weaker and softer in similar plots, which isn't a bad thing but it's a complete shift in character that is usually unnecessary.

[collapse]

The side characters also had a lot of substance and were- most of the time- not flat, although there were some that you could tell were specifically created to cause momentary drama. There were also things that were never brought up again after a mention, like the author would mention the feelings of characters in the future but never even write them into any future-based chapters. For example (translated paragraph courtesy of Chrysanthemum Garden) : "—Many years later, whenever editor-in-chief Wei, the head of the No. 1 gossip magazine in the entertainment industry gave an interview, and was asked about the reason he went on this paparazzi road of no return, he would always grit his teeth and fall into madness." Surprise, surprise, never mentioned once ever again. It's funny, but I don't really understand the point of including this. Not a common occurrence in the novel and not something to shy away from, it's just a little thing I noticed. Highly recommend this novel. I'm not much of an Omegaverse fanatic myself, but it's sometimes nice to enjoy this trope. It's a rare ABO that I liked, and addresses gender inequality/sexism as well (although skewed in a way that conforms the ABO society, the points are still applicable to real life issues). Not only that, but also racism, amongst other issues. Overall, it's a great novel that follows the sweet and fluffy relationship between a swimmer and a painter. <<less

One of my favorite ABO stories out there!! The romance is so cute and the pace of the story is not too fast but not too slow.. The plot synopsis comes in at a good time and the story just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter.. I’ve read a few reviews criticizing the sexism in this book and all I have to say is, the way I see it the MC does face sexism in the book as an omega but he is a STRONG, INDEPENDENT, NOT WILLING TO TAKE ANYONE’S... more>> CRAP omega, and you will see how he proves his strength as an omega in this story. As for the ML, you will see him overcoming his parents strict grasp on him. Overall the story is rather inspiring! <<less

I love this novel.

MC is not your common Omega. He proves that Omegas are not weak. His positive and independent attitude make people follow and like him.

ML is smart and with his indifferent attitude it is no wonder why he fell for MC. He is cunning but he never force MC.

I love how their relationship grew.

The little sister is very adorable.

At first, I planned to wait for the translation to be complete, but I got too excited and read the rest in the RAWs. This is a sweet omegaverse story of two boys who fall in love and slowly learn how to communicate with each other better. I absolutely felt bad for the ML for his parents, and the MC too also has his sad moments. Later on in the story, they comfort each other over what happened and I love how they encourage the other to become a better... more>> person and to pursue their dreams. It's a very good story.

Spoiler

I love how Li Cheng (MC) grows up and gets to achieve his dreams. He becomes more confident and slightly smarter (of course, Xiao Yiheng (ML) still beats him when it comes to being shameless) due to Yiheng's influence and it shows. The two love each other so much, though it's really funny that Li Cheng took a while longer to realise that he actually likes Yiheng. He also endures a lot of discrimination for being an omega, but Li Cheng breaks all the obstacles with stride. He slowly learns to rely on Xiao Yiheng, who is willing to care for him as Li Cheng was so used to being strong and hard-headed by himself. (Being an orphan, and having to fight and protect his sister from the harsh world is hard.) He had no choice but to be the leader in his circumstances, and it's amazing that he is chosen to be the team captain of the national team later on.

Honestly, I feel bad for Xiao Yiheng. Li Cheng's appearance in his life tells him what Xiao Yiheng has been missing, which is living life for himself. Before he met him, everything was planned out by his parents to be the 'ideal Alpha physics researcher at the top of society'. He is basically someone who would exist in real life, a child who is only moulded to achieve their parents' agendas than their own dreams. Of course, not everyone excels in everything as Xiao Yiheng does, but most people with parents who force their aspirations on them would relate to him.

All the awards, trophies and everything he earned were all left behind because they don't belong to Xiao Yiheng, but rather his parents' ideal 'Xiao Yiheng'. It got so bad that he rather abandon everything at home to elope with Li Cheng. I finally understood why the other reviewer was so disappointed when he forgot to take the gift Li Cheng gave him earlier on. Part of me was wondering why XYH did not take his passport or any important documents with him since he decided to nuke his relations with his parents once and for all. It's really a shame how he had to come to the decision, as he had hoped that his parents would let down their pride and care for him as a human being.

But anyway, Xiao Yiheng felt alive when he was with Li Cheng, and it's no surprise that he would be attracted to him after all. Everyone else who witness them in real life is just really shocked at how much of a power couple they are. One is a world athlete, and the other is a world-famous painter who's really good at studies. The world may be unfair, but hey, at least two normal people, both injured in their own way from personal circumstances, get together and create the happy family they always wanted.

I don't usually enjoy ABO stories, but this one is an exception. I love how the writer breaks the stereotypes of weak-omega-and-overpowered-alpha. So refreshing.

I didn't put high expectation but surprisingly I couldn't stop myself to write a review (and I rarely write one.. but this story deserves more recognition haha). [edit: i've only wrote 2 reviews, and the other one is actually from the same author! oh, what a pleasant surprise! ps. please read "cai-cai". that one is a great story too!]

This novel is sweet and wild like the title. In this novel, the unbridled MC and the apathetic ML have a chance meeting and become entangled with each other. Thus begins their relationship from strangers to enemies, enemies to friends, and friends to lovers.

The genre is slice-of-life and bildungsroman, but there is a fair amount of plot. MC's motivations stemming from his past are explored, and ML's faces his own struggles as a product of two high achieving and exceedingly controlling parents. Together, they work to solve their problems and... more>> grow from them while achieving their goals. However, be prepared to roll your eyes as MC can be exceedingly silly.

Spoiler

I can't believe he wanted to name their kid gold. In the end, they settled on... lychee?! First you got orange, then you got pomelo, and then lemon, now lychee? What's next? Lime? Grapefruit?

[collapse]

There are several topics are explored in this novel including sexism, racism, sexual dimorphism, gender identity, autonomy vs authority, and sibling relationships in foster care. They were well written and inserted into the novel in a natural way without appearing to be forced.

Overall, a great novel featuring a cute couple and highly recommended if you're looking for fluff. <<less

In general, I thought the romance in this novel was pretty well written. I like the MC's brash, school-tyrant character and the romantic development pre-temporary mark. The first couple meetings between MC and ML were definitely the most interesting for me, where both of them were teasing back and forth. ML accidentally leaves pheromones on MC, MC gives ML's name to gangsters he beat up, etc.

Later on, it always seems to be ML teasing MC or MC trying and failing to tease ML, which is a lot less interesting. It... more>> generally devolves into, ML says something mildly inappropriate and MC blushes a lot. I really wish MC would troll the ML some more. It might just be part of the MC's tsundere personality, but he sort of folds like wet tissue paper whenever the ML is involved later on.

My main issue with the novel is the ML's personality. Overall, ML is a pretty standard ice king, perfect all around guy. (This man is not only a master painter, but top of his class, and really good at athletics. Would it kill the author to give him some flaws? &Gt;.>) However, the way he approaches courting the ML rubs me the wrong way. As another user mentioned, some of the language he uses is pretty sus. ML's confession scene to MC was hot, but bothered me just a bit.

Spoiler

Not only is the ML painting the MC in his spare time (creepy much?) but when he baits MC into looking at his painting, he bites the MC's neck out of the blue. Which I'm pretty sure the MC mentioned earlier was a form of sexual harassment, even if ML knew the glands weren't there. Mind you, this is before they actually get together.

[collapse]

TLDR: I liked the MC, didn't like the ML. You'll probably like the novel, I'm sensitive to this stuff. <<less

I almost didn't reading this book because of some comments... Don't make the same mistake I did! If you are a crazy ABO Universe fan (like me), read it!!!!! R-E-A-D I-T !!!

I started the novel hating the MC. He's so arrogant! Not in a good way. He creates a nonsense hostility with the ML, what made me angry with him. He's the kind of person who thinks the world revolves around him. BUT this feeling of not liking the MC didn't last long! After understanding more about the MC's past... more>> and why he acquired such a bad temper, I started to like the MC. He REALLY needed to always be above everyone. Not only because of his difficult childhood, but also because at puberty he differentiated as omega, unfortunately not as an alpha or beta as he needed to be a professional swimmer (for us readers, fortunately).

MC is the only omega in professional competitive swimming. He climbs all the way from a provincial champion to the world champion.
I don't particularly like sports novels, but the author presented the characters, the desires and the life story so well, that I spent the whole book cheering for the MC. During the reading, from the bottom of my heart, I hoped that MC would be recognized by the world and pave the way for other omegas in sports.

About his relationship with ML: I have nothing to complain about! The book is full of dog food!!!!!!!! They are so sweet, so in love, so beautiful together! They love and support each other, they trust each other, and always support each other dreams!! The faith they have in each other's potencial is incredible!

About ML: This alpha made me shed tears. He's so passionate, so devoted, so sweet ~
I LOVE how there is a break in the concept that we see in every ML alpha in novels: to be super strong. The MC is a professional athlete and, obviously, his physical condition is better than ML. Furthermore, ML is a painter!!! That's right you read, a PAINTER! He is sensitive to art and decoration, is organized and very clean. Completely unlike our omega MC who is a crazy ̶d̶o̶g̶ cat hahahaha.

I want to give this novel 6 stars! For an omegaverse crazyfan like me, this book has everything an ABO needs to have! Some spoilers below:
Spoiler

A bite mark between alpha and omega;
A cute baby;
Omega heat;
A society's prejudice against omegas and the struggle to change that;
Suppressors;
Pheromones to supress and to seduce.

[collapse]

Finally, there are some things that I found particularly surreal about MC and swimming. But, I didn't think it was a problem that affected the content of the story. There is no way a fiction book can be a copy of reality. That was easily acceptable to me. Definitely, one of the best omegaverse novels I have ever read!

PS: For those who don't like to read omegaverse stories for: fear of having r*pe, or non-con content, or don't like the alpha force the omega with the pheromones to have sex, don't worry! You can read it! <<less
