Basic Premise:
Itaru is down in the dumps… literally. That’s where Kouki finds him while on assignment trying to catch a stalker. Kouki takes pity on Itaru and tries to help him out, breaking a $2000 camera in the process. Itaru has to find a way to pay Kouki back without calling his parents since he’s run away from home and bad situation. Kouki doesn’t want the aggravation but finds having Itaru around isn’t so bad after all.

Sex Shown:
What sex? No really. What sex? This book is all about building the relationship. I think the rating is for the cross-dresser.

WHAT?!! What do you mean it’s only ONE volume?! There has to be more. There just has to be. Don’t leave me hanging like that. NOOOOOOOOO!

Okay, I got that off my chest. Yes. I did some research and there is only one volume to this story. That is totally unfair of Takanaga-sensei. I love her stuff and this story totally deserves a second volume. Itaru and Kouki are just getting started and there is so much left undone. I want more.

Suffice to say, I really enjoyed this story. It can use another volume, just because the characters were that awesome and deserve more page time, but it really isn’t needed. The story is complete.

A cute little quick read.
