Beautiful Daiki Yamada works at Fun Time Publishing Company managing their Manga book department. He loves his job except for one very irritating thing. His supervisor constantly belittles him. When Masa Kobayashi visits the store and takes a liking to Daiki, his life changes drastically. He's offered the chance of a lifetime to stock and design a new manga section in the Kobayashi stores. What starts out off as a business transaction quickly turns personal. Masa is enchanted by Daiki at first sight hoping the gorgeous man will feel the same. It seems like too much too soon but whatever Masa wants Masa gets.

This is a very sweet story and I loved every word. If you're looking for intense, stop and go, find another book. It's a simple angst-free very pleasant read about love at first sight. Both the main characters are totally engaging. Daiki is simply adorable and even more so when he's cuddling with Masa. The writing is good with some great repartee between our main characters. I liked the premise a lot, really refreshing to read something a little different in the genre. The sexual situations are steamy although their first encounter was a little questionable for me. Daiki hadn't been with a man before and Masa was a little over eager. It could have been a bad scene but the author made it palatable. The supporting characters rounded out the story nicely and actually balanced out some of the sweetness. Overall, I honestly enjoyed the read. I hope the author writes a follow-up.

Overall rating:
Sensuality rating: Very sensual
