image

Couple # 1 : Kafei and Xiao Ha. They are neighbours. They are also lovers.

Couple # 2 : Ji Xiao Ran, a wealthy and outrageously handsome businessman and Bai Xiao Guai, a tomboy policewoman. Both are also neighbours.

Xiao Ran says, “I am going to sue you for rape!!!!”

Xiao Guai replies, “What are you talking about??”

Xiao Ran retorts, “You don’t believe me, I’ll show you….”

Xiao Ran then brings Xiao Guai to his apartment. Xiao Guai sees both Kafei and Xiao Ha affectionately huddled in a corner. Next to them were four little cute newborn puppies.

Xiao Guai innocently defends Kafei, “…..by the looks of it, it’s mutual consent, I don’t see any coercion…..”

Both Kafei and Xiao Ha’s love affair is contagious spreading to their respective owners. Unexpectedly, Xiao Ran falls in love with Xiao Guai but she on the other hand has a crush on her superior, Liang Yi He for years. Although Liang Yi He also likes her, he has refrain from revealing his feelings due to some past events which are currently still plaguing him.

Due to Liang Yi He’s hesitation, Xiao Ran then very quickly moves into gear and stamp his mark on Xiao Guai. Meanwhile, silly policewoman Xiao Guai, still in a state of confusion, suddenly finds that Xiao Ran has become her boyfriend overnight!!

While Xiao Ran is determined to completely erase Liang Yi He from Xiao Guai’s heart, his ex-girlfriend shows up to complicate the situation. At the same time, Liang Yi He seems to slowly realise that he’s unable to let Xiao Guai go, so will he try to wrestle her from Xiao Ran?

    This is another sworn brother series – first brother Qin Yue Ze, second brother He Mo Yang, third bother Ji Xiao Ran and fourth brother Fu Ling Chen.

    I chose to read the third brother (Ji Xiao Ran) story becoz from the synopsis, I was attracted to him most. (And also maybe becoz this couple reminds me so much of Chen Yu Bai and An Xiao Li).

    Turned out to be such a wonderfully funny book. Xiao Ran is so cute. His hair s somewhat curly and he wears sapphire ear studs. I’ll rather drop dead than admit that I find man who wears ear studs attractive. Looks like I’m dropping dead here…lol….

    One very funny scene was when they first slept with each other. The morning after, he pretended to be very distressed about it and told her that she has to be responsible for him, now that he’s hers!!!

    Another funny scene was when she was forced by her friend to change her hairstyle and got a hair perm. After the perm, she went home with a head full of curly hair (which was actually very nice) but he teases her and says, “just because you like to eat instant noodles, doesn’t mean you have to wear them on your head”.

    Also, this is the book for dog lovers, both Kafei and Xiao Ha share the limelight with Xiao Ran and Xiao Guai.

    This is really another one my fav type of books – very funny and has just teensy weensy bits of angst here and there. After marathoning this book for three days, I might move onto the fourth brother, Fu Ling Chen who is in love with his aunt!!! (I’m moving from uncles to aunties….)..lol…

    Errrrr…..ahem…….this is too embarrassing……would dearly love to reply Cloud’s question but I’m still very much a novice, I don’t know Ran Hou, Sui Yu Er An(???)…….

    I’m going under the quilt now, going to hibernate for a while……very very shy….

    But if you’re like me, love all the fu-hei men, silly girls, warm hearted stories plus if you love dogs (which I actually don’t)……this book cannot go wrong.

    What lah you????? Somemore professes to love Xiao Bai dearly but doesn’t know the name of his book !!!!!! I see a lot of black lines on you now, hahaha……Cloud just omitted the ‘ai qing’ – 2 words. In conclusion, peanuts loves Xiao Bai very much & deserves him the most, lol.

    Errr…..see what I mean when I said my grades were not up to mark? I am going to disappear for a while, maybe a year or two.

    I think I embarrassed my Shi fu as well………

    Non Bird Non Beast is lighter. I find 然后、爱情随遇而安 heavier, moodier and the plot is more indepth and developed, and the characters appear much more stronger and impactful. But the one thing I dislike about 然后、爱情随遇而安 is the two-in-one storyline, the writer should hv a separate book for Li Wei Ran-Qin Sang’s story.

    …..going under the quilt again…..

    Haha Xinn, feels like you are a bear hibernating now!!! I like Li Wei Ran and Qin Sang Sang a lot and thought that they should have their own story too.
