I created a category “drop off list” but I have never posted an audiobook where I gave up listening half way through. I am going to start doing that. I may continue the audiobook one day but chances are slim. There are just too many books that to choose from instead of going back to the books where I have no liking of the storyline, the ending or the main characters.
This is my first post on the drop off list. I gave up at Episode 13 and went on to listened to Episode 90 – 93. There were too many rape scenes and FL’s character is just too weak. At one stage, I was hoping that she would grow stronger and fight back. But she did not. FL got into a relationship with the man who raped her and then with her boss who also raped her.
FL (Zhao Xiao Wei) is a new graduate looking for a job. FL went for an interview and met Zi Qing. Zi Qing offered FL a place to sleep for the night. That night, Zi Qing had non-consensual sex with FL.
FL started her job and a relationship with Zi Qing. Feng Zi Yue (ML) is FL’s boss. ML is more than 15 years older than FL and married with a kid. ML separated from his wife. ML thought FL was trying to get his attraction but he was wrong. ML transferred Zi Qing to another post in another province and forced FL to become his mistress.
FL left ML to join Zi Qing but their relationship did not last. Zi Qing’s mother got in between them and started to abuse FL. FL went back to Beijing and bumped in ML. ML got angry when he saw the marks on FL’s body and her poor living condition. FL returned to ML as his mistress.
FL found a job in Zhou Yi’s company. Zhou Yi fell in love with FL and wanted FL to leave ML but he slowly realised that FL loves ML despite how bad ML treated her. ML jealous of Zhou Yi because Zhou Yi is younger than him and Zhou Yi can offer FL marriage which he could not. ML knows since he could not offer FL’s marriage, he planned everything to make sure that FL could live financially free in future.
ML’s business got into trouble. ML got charged for corruption. FL begged ML’s wife (Lu Nan) to help ML. Lu Nan agreed provided FL leaves ML and return all the assets ML bought for FL. FL agreed.
ML fallen sick in prison and underwent a brain surgery. After the surgery, ML lost his memories.
