The best story from the anthology was, however, Do You Love Me? Chiko and her boyfriend Midori stopped talking after a huge fight at their high school graduation. Chiko wanted to go on a trip with him before they went off to different universities, but Midori opened his schedule to work the entire break. Worried about him, she shows up at his part-time job every day in different disguises, but she's running out of ideas. After consulting with her friend, she shows up in a panda costume! Unable to drink the tea she ordered, Midori serves her iced tea with a straw so she can drink it. She overhears a customer asking Midori if he's got a girlfriend, jumps up from her seat, but gets caught on the table, spilling her tea all over herself! Midori takes her to the staff break room to help her clean up and things quickly turn spicy!
If you're in the mood for a manga with just enough sweet, spice and comedy, I highly recommend checking this one out!
Unlike the previous Sweet Love title by the same author, TEACH ME EVERYTHING NAUGHTY -STEAMY EMPLOYEE-TRAINING IN SESSION- features a college graduate meek in affairs of the heart, looking to get back at her ex-boyfriend but who ends up falling for her former one-night-stand and current boss. Will their love be mutual?
You should definitely check this one out if steamy office and elevator sex is your thing!
I also loved the third story, What You Taught Me. Soichiro transfers to Yui's department after a rumored violent incident involving a female employee at HQ. Yui organizes his disaster of a welcome dinner. Feeling sorry, she invites him out for drinks. Soichiro is baffled. She didn't drink earlier, so why now? Yui reveals that she gets horny when she drinks. Three sheets to the wind later, they're between the sheets. Yui's feelings for Soichiro transform as the story and rumors unravel.
All five stories spotlight bereft protagonists swearing off relationships for good and clinging to preconceived notions about people and love. If you're in the mood for some heartwarming yet sweet love and fairly steamy sex, this one's for you.
The first chapter is about the two of them growing closer to each other at work and finally getting together, and the rest of the chapters are about them after they've started dating. My favorite chapter is the third one; it brings a love rival into the picture. Usually when a love rival appears the male lead will get jealous and say something like 'I won't let you take her!' or 'Stay away from my girl!' etc., but Kyoya, even though he's worried, keeps everything to himself and suffers in silence. He's just so awkward that it triggers my maternal instincts. This is a great read and I highly recommend it.
1. After her boyfriend cheats on her, she throws her phone in a rage and breaks it.

Just how long will her unlucky streak continue? Will she ever find love? You'll have to read it to find out.
