Sleep Still, Don’t Let Go 睡住不放 by 金大 Jin Da (HE)

Unloved by her male chauvinistic father, bullied by her illegitimate brother, unappreciated by her boyfriend, and constantly witnessing her mother’s low status in the family, Lin Wan’s life is as pathetic as can be. But that’s just how it is, living in an extremely patriarchic family where woman is an absolute nobody.

After dumping her wretched boyfriend, Lin Wan moved on with life working in a company which manages luxurious properties in an upscale housing estate. As side income, she also helps to petsit two golden retrievers for one of the house owners. Then one day, she eventually meets Ceng Jun, the owner of the two dogs. She could hardly believe it when on their first meeting, she was offered to be “kept” by him. Ceng Jun said, “rather than secretly enjoying this lavish house, why don’t you openly live in and be the mistress of the house?”. Lin Wan rudely rejected him, quit her job and was very adamant about starting afresh with a new job.

But alas, her even more wretched father decided to skip town bringing along his illegitimate son and all their household valuables and left Lin Wan and her poor mother saddled with all his debts. Homeless and almost destitute, she has no choice but to seek out Ceng Jun for help.

However, is Ceng Jun her true saviour or is he the beginning of another nightmare for her?

    This is definitely another first for me as in the male lead has a slight disability. He is lame. Aside from this, he is my usual staple of a male lead, gorgeously handsome, super duper rich, extremely powerful and topped off with an aristocratic and politically linked family background.

    Love reading about how Ceng Jun brutally dealt with all those people who bullied or offended Lin Wan, including her own father. In one of the final epilogues, Ceng Jun was musing to himself that the only one person who dares to bully Lin Wan in his face is their baby in her stomach. However, the book has very little two-way dialogues between the leads because Ceng Jun is a man of few words. He rarely speaks. His “actions” though are loud and frequent….haha…if you can catch my drift…

    Rest assured, the book has no angst, just a steady progression of their love and ends with twelve epilogues of their post marriage life, with kids and all. Very sweet and subtle.

    And thanks to Peanuts for helping edit the title as well…

    Do let me know if you like it after you read it. I reckon with this book, one either like it a lot or hate it, there’s no midpoint here (just look at the ratings…LOL),

    Many thanks for the link! I’ve been reading using Google translate audio function. Cab understand much more Chinese than I can read and write. Love this book although even I think the male lead is a psychopath…. very scary and obsessive. Fantastic as a fiction but any sane girl would run away screaming from him in real life, I think

    @yukikumori, why not try Bing Translate? Google translate is too slow, only 50 words per translation(?). Bing is able to do 450 words per translation.

    Hi XinnXinn, just tried bing translation. It is so much better than Google translate. Many of the words and phrases were translated correctly. Yay! Big thank you.

    Do you know of any other stories by this author? I read very little Chinese so my Google search on the author wasn’t of much help.

    Ermmm……reading this book…but it seems likes it’s quite or rather super mustardy yellow…….the guy is a super pervert??!!! Shd I continue with it? Is it worth a read to the end? Can’t make head or tails of it……why is he so super hung up with her??

    Hmmm I love this book and seriously toying with the idea of Translating to English if I can fine a pinyin reader that allows me to pause the reader. There are reasons for male lead’s obsession. As someone said earlier you either love or hate this book

    Can give me spoilers plssss…..I’m not sure if I love this book…but I pretty much dislike the male lead at this point of time….still haven’t gotten the real reason yet tho…..there are some mentions abt some past…but it does not seem good to her if that’s the reason he’s so hung up on her…..

    Er… I wasn’t a fan of this book. The male and female lead were not in a consensual relationship for the majority of the book. It was only towards the end that the female lead finally accepted him. I read all the way to the end with hopes that the male lead would have some bit of comeuppance or at least be repentant. Nope, that didn’t happen. While Ceng Jun dealt with all those bullied Lin Wan, he himself bullied and forced her against her wishes.

    Happy-ending, but the journey wasn’t pleasant.

    Thanks…..I managed to trudge thru….but I’m sorry…I have to be classified as one who does not like the book……even tho he was nice and so obsessively “loved” her….I still feel he was in love with his image of what he wanted…basically a substitute……..and she is the perfect description of that syndrome…where one falls in love with ones captor…..

    I ploughed thro the book. Don’t like the male lead. There’s no interaction between them except for the time in the bedroom. He doesn’t have any decent conversation with her. Not my cup of tea.
    It’s in the epilogues that he converses with her.
