Such a cute story. As I read chapters 1-10 I thought "This is cute but so predictable..." Then along came chapter 11 and I started laughing out loud. I love this heroine. She is so refreshing. This one is completely smut free after 11 chapters so if that is what floats your boat, look elsewhere. But for an adorable storyline, refreshing fmale lead and a charming story, it is totally worth the purchase of 11 chapters so far. Can't wait for more!
It's a Yakuza love story with a gender-bending twist. Decent plot / storyline but needed a couple of volumes to develop the story better. This one hit several of my sweet spots -- a bad boy male lead who nonetheless is respectful and protective of his woman and prioritizes and delights in her pleasure in sex, a strong female lead with agency and control over her own destiny and choices in life, and in full possession of a brain which is always crucial to me as a reader in a female lead. The sex was good if brief and not very detailed. The Yakuza boss and bodyguard dynamic adds a bit of Master and Servant BDSM role play dynamics but it is essentially a sweet vanilla love story with plot. Strong female lead, strong male lead. Good chemistry between them. They have female pleasure focused sexual encounters that are hot and good if nowhere near explicit enough. The male is charismatic and charming. The female is smart, brave, makes her own decisions and lives with the consequences of her choices in life -- I really liked her. I recommend it. As another reviewer noted, the ending is a bit rushed and wrapped up rather neatly with a bow, but I do not regret this as a purchase at all. In fact I purchased it again as a paperback from a Japanese retailer after reading it here. It was a quick and enjoyable read with great art and good sex. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to read more by this author, 篌
