Like her sharktooth Venus fly trap namesake, she walks a balancing act between plant-like fragility and carnivorous strength. The story does a great job of blending in humor and drama, and the twists and turns will definitely keep you reading! Will Sawa be able to reconcile her romantic ideals with her gritty passion?

The Crimson Kitty And The Forest Watchdog
Posted on May 19th / Genre: Mature Romance
Misha is a cat girl who's just got herself a new place, though for a new place it's looking a bit run down! She's already started work on fixing her pad up, but renovating a whole house is a bit much for one kitten. While she's out taking a look around the forest next-door, she happens to walk into (get scared half to death by) a passing dog man, Hati, who has no place to stay. Not about to let a potential helping hand get away, Misha offers Hati lodgings in return for his help with the house. Everything seems to be going perfectly! But, Hati starts acting strange one night... and, is that a full moon...?
This series is hella cute, though it does get off to a rougher start than expected in chapter one. Don't let that scare you off though, 'cause romance starts blooming before you know it. It's interesting to see the approach the series takes in regards to the in-universe taboo of interspecies relationships and families, and the heartwarming message of acceptance that the couple and their friends represent. You'll be sad to leave these guys when the story ends, but you'll definitely be glad you joined them for the ride.

Bondage, Discipline, and the Seductive Young Man
Posted on Apr 21st / Genre: Mature Romance
Minato Kashiwagi might seem like a successful, career driven office worker on the outside, but she's got something else going on underneath. With an eye for spotting masochistic guys, Minato is the dominatrix of the office with more than a few men under her thumb. The young, new intern in the office, Towa, seems like he'd be a nice addition to her collection, and she goes in for the kill at his welcome party. It turns out though that this weak looking newbie is quite the wolf in sheep's clothing, and it looks like it's finally Minato's turn to be dominated!
Towa is clearly an expert when it comes to teasing and tempting, and what really got me about this series was how I felt like he wasn't just toying with Minato but toying with me, too. Sometimes he'd just stop in the middle of the hot action and instead of feeling disappointed, I found myself flicking through for my next fix. This is honestly one of the hottest manga I've read in a while and with nice art and some fun little story twists to back it up, I can't recommend this series enough!

An Extramarital Quartet -The Detective and the Wife-
Posted on Mar 24th / Genre: Mature Romance
Not long after marrying a handsome doctor, Mika Asukai has already found herself hiring a private detective... but she doesn't want him to investigate her husband. No, she wants him to sleep with her! But, why on Earth would she want that!? Well that's where the story get's interesting...
You can't say too much about the plot of this series without spoiling it, but hopefully the promise of very twisty twists is enough for you to give it a chance!
Our detective Rei is simultaneously a genius and a loveable dope, and Mika is just the sweetest girl who you can't help but root for. Even the "bad guys" in the series are relatable and come off more as screw-ups than bad people, making the whole story feel very human.
The steamy sex scenes are really just the icing on the cake here.
