Romance

Okay here is the Romance list. There really isn’t a lot of good romance online. Translated or English. But I pulled out what I could remember. As I remember more, I’ll update.

A Slight Smile is Very Charming

bookcover3-weiwei

Summary: What is it that makes a man fall in love with a woman at first sight? Appearance? Aura? Wealth? NO, when campus prince and gaming expert, student Xiao Nai first saw Bei Wei Wei, what made him fall in love was not her extraordinary beauty, but her slim and slender fingers that were flying across the keyboard and her calm and composed manner!!! Embarrassing, no?

At the same time, gaming expert Bei Wei Wei, at this time and place is on the computer, methodically commanding a guild war, and won a perfect and glorious victory despite being at a disadvantage, and was completely unaware that cupid is nearby. Soon after basketball player, swimmer, all-around excellent student, and game company president, Xiao Nai, uses both tactics on and off-line to take this beauty’s heart. Therefore this romance slowly bloomed

Opinion: Truly a good story. Probably my fav on this list. It is simple, sweet, and very little drama. Which is hard to do, writing a love story with very little drama. The purity and simplicity but unique way of writing……this story will stick with me for a long time.

Come and Eat, Shan Shan

Summary: This novel is about low ranking staff Shan Shan being oppressed by the Big Boss. She keeps fighting but keeps losing. So she finally stopped struggling and obediently surrendered…

Shan Shan, extremely docile, waited outside the delivery room as the temporary blood bank. At the same time, the big boss sent her away to do a blood test to ensure she was of good health and suitable blood type.

Sure enough, the pregnant woman was in a critical condition. Thus, Shan Shan obediently let 300 cc of her blood being pumped. The condition of the pregnant woman improved. Shan Shan received many thanks, left the hospital and lamented this while looking at the moon.

“Capitalists really are blood-suckers, heartless, heartless.”

Shan Shan who is deep in thought did not notice a black limousine stopped behind her. The man at the back seat heard her sigh, moved his mouth and then closed the recently opened window.

“Drive home.”

“Boss, did you just say you want to send Miss Xue back?”

“No need,” the man said without expression, “capitalists are heartless.”

Opinion: This story is hilarious. I laugh throughout. I really enjoy this. Even if airhead females aren’t my favorite, but this one was a winner.

Summary:A lecherous army special task force soldier from 21st-century Hong Kong is selected to travel back in time, choosing to go to the Chinese Warring States Period. Unfortunately, the time machine runs into an error during the experiment. With no foreseeable way to return to the present, he must use his combat skills and knowledge of history to thrive in his new life in the year 251 BC.

Opinion: Let’s face it, most romance novels are written for girls. This one..This one is written for boys. A man’s romance.

Overview: Set in a world of martial artist that are at the apex of good and evil. The three leads fight for what is right and for their loves. Can they save the world and destroy evil? Can they get their women? Each protagonist has his own journey.

Opinion: These are classic stories. You have no right to say you are a wuxia fan if you haven’t at the very least watch/read one of these stories.

Summary:Yu Jin is an orphan, who was raised by wolves in the desert. She happened to meet a man of Han living with a Xiongnu tribe who takes her back to his camp due to her saving his life from thirst. She soon becomes friends with Xiongnu’s children. One year later, due to political changes, her foster father is killed. His only wish was for her to return to his hometown of Chang’an, in the Han Dynasty while hers is to live with the wolves for she has lost the one who she relied on. While going on life’s journey she met two men on the way hereby starting her story which will span years with so much colorful and stunning trials and tribulations

Opinion: In all honesty, this is my least favorite on the list. I really don’t like stories with love triangles. But I rec this for those who do. It isn’t a bad story, just not my tea. And since there aren’t a lot of free romance, here you go!

To Be A Virtuous Wife

Summary: As a virtuous wife, does it include tolerating his cousin, enduring his concubines, bearing his mother?

If you will not let me live freely, why would I let you live in satisfaction?

Did fate let women time-travel so she could learn the three morals and four virtues?

Rather than act like a coward and live, it would be better to live in satisfaction and die.

Opinion: For those who don’t know Ancient Chinese terms, the beginning of this is really hard to read. I even dropped it the first time I read it. But because of good feedback, I gave this another try. I persevered! I was well worth it. If you can’t do it the first time, go back to it later. It is well worth the ride.

Sansheng, Wangchuan Wu Shang

Summary:This is a story that follows the courtship between a stone from Hell and a god from Heaven that begins in the underworld, spans for three lifetimes in the mortal realm, and ends

Opinion: A completely charming story. Easy read. I wish it was a chapter longer though.

The Demoness Is Not Evil

Summary: They say Gentleman Xiao Yao (carefree) Liu Feng is a famed righteous pugilist. He himself thought that even if he isn’t considered noble and benevolent, he is at least of honourable character.

But only when he met her, did he realise that he is very well capable of being such a lecherous man. At every little moment he is constantly wanting to take advantage of her, always trying to touch her soft slender hands. It’s hopeless, who told this lady to just be so interesting, causing his heart to helplessly be moved by her—-

Her appearance looks like that of a refined lady from a well off background, but in reality she is nothing like that inside. Not only highly skilled in martial arts, her sharp tongue is also highly skilled, capable of angering people to a whole new boiling point.

Her ways of doing things is also extremely bold, completely treating the principle of impropriety between men and women like an old fart. He had only jokingly invited her to sleep with him, yet she actually pats the bed beckoning him to attend to her (?) Even going to the point of shooing him out the room after eating him dry, finding him to be too obstructive on the eye, what a way to shoot down his self-esteem.

Ai~ to fall for such a unique girl, causing him to be filled with joy one moment, and filled with sorrow the next. Overjoyed when he has her by his side, sorrowful when she acts so elusive. If that was not enough, she didn’t even leave a single note behind and disappeared without a trace, causing him to become like an abandoned husband searching for his wife.

Little do they know that this is an important test to see if these two people can be together…..

Opinion: Story was too short. I wish it was longer, but a good read.
