Chen Linyun had spend the night together in a dorm room with a drunken girl he had mistaken for a boy when he was still eighteen years old during his sophomore year in the university. Little did he know this short encounter will leave a mark in him, unable to let go of this woman who disappeared after that night. He was head-over-heels and had vowed to search for her in every part of the earth.
Five years after they met again, but ‘his woman’ that he claims is not anymore the same as the sweet girl from years ago, rather a domineering leader of her own empire.
With his own charm, his adventure to chase the girl and convince her of his love starts in this story.
It’s a reverse role that the MC is a bit soft and domesticated but smart, while the FC is the strong-willed one – playful and teasing.
Ally_thesaint: This book really deserve to be way above the list. It’s a sweet storyline, has lots of fluffiness but nothing is rushed. The ML is not the usual cold, rich and powerful tycoon insteadis portrayed as someone way below the status of FL. FL is nothing like a damsel in distress, she single handedly brings around their family business after her brother’s death. ML’s progress, conviction etc are steady. You don’t feel like it’s being unnecessarily dragged on.
Freakzilla: I love how the storyline is moving forward steadily. It’s not holding back without reason and the updates have (as far as I know) always been punctual, too. The characters appear realistic and really sweet, especially the guy, who isn’t as emotionless as most other male MCs in web novels. They both charmed me with their bashfulness 😍😍😍 Note: this is really a LOVE-story and good in that aspect. So don’t expect the characters to meet any live-threatening situations.
There may sometimes be minor errors in the language, but they are barely notable. The setting is modern China. The story would work out nearly everywhere else too though, so it’s not only for China-fans.
JhowSS: For those who like a different romance. Where FL is the one who comes from an elite family unlike ML.
A good read with a sweet novel:
ML is one of my favorite novels I read. Timid but when the time comes the courage has. One of the most understanding ones I’ve ever seen (sometimes even too understanding).
The FL is a girl who has to hide her true self because of the family business. She is cheerful, bossy, malicious (in a good way), she is strong in business and weak to the family (too much).
Antagonist who could be an ML from another CEO novel (arrogant, proud, selfish, cold? …) to understand why he did what he did (though I still hate him).
A best friend who is self-hypocritical and selfish balances on two sides (whoever read understands).
NOTE: For those who do not like an FL that is indecisive about their feelings can get a little annoyed (he hurt the ML 4 times before calling him that likes him, and then can barely wait for the guy for 6 months – almost started liking a guy that appeared out of nowhere – being the ML endured more than 5 years).
In the case of the baby, the ML who blames herself more than she has to drown in guilt while trying to console the FL, only to hurt him again and again (and still wants to be jealous of her own friend). Fortunate FL that ML is understanding and loves her a lot, otherwise it was already.
Even though I’m not very much in favor of FL, you can understand her feelings and what she sacrificed for her reaction as well.
