Chapter 1 out only, but what a fantastic start. The artwork is gorgeous, the smut scenes are wonderfully rendered. It's refreshing to see two consenting adults enjoying sex together. I find the trope of female characters constantly saying "no" and "don't" when they are pleasured by the partner of their choice very annoying. It always feels as of they need to feel guilty instead of showing genuine enjoyment. I hope this series will continue as strongly as it started.
The art is alright and the plot has interesting elements. However the "romance" is not believable in any away. The lead verbally mistreats the heroine and she falls in love with him because he "saved" her? He buys her for the sole purpose of using her and she he final "redemptive" act rings untrue and forced. Harlequin often depicts the female leads in a terrible light, full of cliches and old fashioned, this is a prime example.
This is one of my favourite pieces together with My Secret with the Girl next door. It's surprisingly humorous with lovable characters that have chemistry that makes their interactions believable. It left me want for more, but at the same time I was grateful that it didn't drag on with unnecessary drama. Also, it's gorgeously drawn, both MC and FC being utterly gorgeous. I have reread it several times and cash duly recommend it!
