Both main characters are complete fools. This should be tagged with "Dense Female Lead", "Dense Male Lead", and "Misunderstandings", at least.

This is a light-hearted story about reversed roles. However, it seems that the only people who have a brain in their heads are the side cast, who are mostly excellent. Unfortunately, that doesn't save this novel. If anything, it just goes to show that the author is capable of writing good characters, good backstories, and decent plots, but simply chose not to (or had great difficulty in trying to) for... more>> the most important characters.
Altogether a 'meh' story. <<less

Haha, for me, this is a good read. I also had good laughs at this one. Though I seem to get irritated with the male lead, I hope he shows some progress and increase my favorable rating of him.

It's cute for a light weight read with a surprise emotional ending.

I don't know if it's just me but the MC is childish AF. She's very pampered. "After waking up and secretly planning on running away" - the story doesn't seem to even go along with that plot line.

... more>>

The only time she actually "runs away" is near the end of the story and it was just because of some stupid fit between her and ML. And EVERYONE KNOWS IT'S NOT REAL. It's like some stupid lovers chase where she's just making ML come find her.


Actually, the MC might just be a brainless airhead.


The summary says she slowly regains her memories but it's more of a people telling her what happened sort of thing and deciding that since she no longer feels anything, she might as well divorce.

She tries to get a divorce but the ML for some reason refuses. He gives a stupid excuse about her father's money for building a dam which the story later smooths out the excuse by his mother narrating that the ML became stupid as to use her father's money to keep MC from divorcing.

Once this plot came up I just got confused.

In the beginning, it doesn't seem like ML liked MC at all.

Anyhow, she threatens him with divorce but it's more like a threat a kid makes to their parents like if they wanted to run away. All throughout the story, the MC is so childish that it doesn't even feel like she's a married woman. Even during nightly activities, she's so brainlessly dense that even though I do not like the ML much, I commend him for such patience in dealing with her.

Most of the time, it has the feeling of a big brother looking after his younger sister than a married couple.

Even in the epilogues, when the MC HAS CHILDREN, she is STILL childish!


I didn't like the ML much either in the beginning. By the end of it, I liked the story but not so much either the MC or ML. I like reading the feelings of trust and love between them but I hate their personalities TBH. I love seeing their interactions with side characters but I really hate MC's childish ways. I don't know about you guys, but whenever I read the MC speaking, I get a childish voice in my head. It's a somewhat obnoxious one too.

The story is pretty ok. I actually cried a couple of times near the ending. The scenes are very nice BUT I just can't take the character's personalities.

If you can deal with a childish personality, then it's a pretty fun mind numbing read. <<less

That's enough, the ML is so pathetic and shameless and the MC so stupid and naive.

He pretends to be so righteous, but seeks out to marry her in exchange for a huge amount of money. After he cheats her family out of money, he still dares hit her and be stingy with her.

It is a sweet tooth story if you can bypass the characters' flaws.

The FL, 17yo, was raised extremely spoiled and sheltered. A one-track mind. Toward any problems, she just puffed her cheeks or cry, cry, and CRY. Omg, super annoying. If she doesn't get what she wants, solution: cry some more til her eyes puff up to get pity points. Her husband is her world. The only reflection she has is she isn't as pretty as other girls. She depends on others to solve the problems for her, even to... more>> the end. She doesn't run away, just thoughts of leaving or outbursts. NO character development on her side. I honestly don't believe any 17yo is not self-aware. She has two older sisters but the whole family just dote on her, the youngest, she is their world. Even her mother said that she is only her daughter and honey.

She "ran away" once at the end but it was, like, chase me husband and we will chase butterflies~~~. UGH.


Just her alone is 0 stars. Two stars is because the side characters are smart. Like another reviewer said, the author can write well, but just decided to make the FL a brat. <<less

Not a bad read. I don't particularly like the male lead. He annoyed me throughout most of the chapters. Recently, he's been okay. Sometimes I wish the female lead was a bit more mature, but in the end, I actually like her. They're both quite dense.

Honestly, I was about to drop this in the beginning because of the male lead, and I still don't like him very much.

Discourage to read because the review at first... but its worth the reading..

Xiao Qi had a very simple yet charming character... and the male lead realized his feeling after a while.. this truly make everything seems normal because he doesn’t directly infactuated with Xiao Qi

would love to re read this again

I enjoyed this a lot. It was fun, cute and easy to read with all the right feels here and there. I liked how the road to true love was pretty straight. The second male lead could have created more trouble, he had a lot of chances, but having not much drama from that side was all right. The rival female was not easy to connect to. She's not really evil but her character itself is not likable, maybe because she's an embodiment of a leech. I don't know can't... more>> say much about that. The story development is good, the flow was easy. The climax at the end was unexpected, to say the least, but it give the opportunity to resolved the conflict between the potential triangle. All in all this was a really good read.",) <<less

Actually I've read this jovel long ago but I'll write a review something right now.

When I start reading this novel I feel uncomfortable because the ML. But I kinda think that the one who unfortunate is our MC because how much she chase him. Its good that he will like her back.

This novel have a good plot. The most memorable scene for me is when ML chasing our MC (so satisfying) -well I dont like story when ML get his love so cheaply after hurting fml/MC without any development.

And you... more>> can try to read this novel first and ignore those 'bad' reviews. Its not that bad and its not worst novel that deserve 1 star.

About the translation I cant give any comment because err yeah.. My english really bad. <<less
