    Looking for novels where the male lead is a timid or taciturn whilst the female lead is charismatic and/or sharp-tongued. As for who's the protagonist, it doesn't matter. No harems.

    My Master Disconnected Yet Again. Though MC is both uncharismatic and sharp-tongued (She's still badass tho
    She's the most powerful existence in the whole universe, right from the start
    )

    Dandere General and his Lord - Setting is Ancient China, it's a kingdom building, Boss-subordinate relationship, she crossdresses as her brother. ML is so cute I can't, hmm like he's very quiet and sensitive and really loyal, also has a tragic past. World doesn't revolve around them tho, there are alot of other interesting characters and I once thought harem, except no that's just me being conditioned to suspect romance with everyone, it's beautiful plationic bromance, loyal subjects, familial (not alot of this). Romance not main focus, but it makes it seem so much sweeter when they get together

    I Have the Aura of Overbearing President - Modern day, Business Management, Boss-subordinate relationship
    Really cute, and love how MC wouldn't do things that go against her morals, I love her. Interesting characters, breaks multiple clichés, Boss woman MC, OG FL is not evil, Romance isn't main focus in the beginning, it was kinda unexpected but pleasantly surprising how it happened.

    The Spoiled Daily Life of the Villain’s Mother - Modern day, Familial Love
    QT - except not, so like it's the retirement life of a former QT host with flashbacks. Family is the main focus for a better part of the novel (like 4/5). Interesting characters & character interactions, tragic pasts, QT - Ancient China, Republic of China, Interstellar World, Cultivation World, Apocalypse (they are flashbacks tho)

    • The Empress' Livestream (the ML is not that timid, but the FL totally dominates him)
    • Beware of the villainess
