"Hot, hot, HOT sex scenes in this steamy manga is reason alone to buy this yaoi."-SequentialTart.com
Selling one's body at Japan's most popular host club comes naturally for Junsuke Aki. In fact, he is the club's top earner and easily the most popular host with the female clientele. However, his lover, a former host named Shinobu Hishiya, has forsaken the wild club lifestyle in favor of his new job as a construction worker. Together, they share wild days and passionate nights, making love whenever, wherever, and however they want. But when jealousy and male pride arise, their blissful, sexy relationship may not be able to handle the strain.
Junsuke and Shinobu are lovers. They live together since a year and recently Shinobu has left his work as host for a night club in favor of a construction work. Instead Junsuke still works in that place. It's strange, giving Junsuke's work, to realize that it's Shinobu who seems less committed: in the first scene of the manga we see him having an extra affair relationship with a designer he has known at work, but he is pretty clear that it's a one night standing.
But Junsuke knows all and he gives some hints of jelausy. Shinobu acts in a strange way: he seems to be taken by Junsuke but he also questions his own involvment and meanwhile he makes some jealousy scenes to Junsuke for his own. So what he wants? Of the two, who seems to me more steady and sure is Junsuke.
By the way I found this manga very interesting: I think it decipts a pretty usual situation in a modern couple... are we only fuck buddy or are we lovers? And lovers as there is LOVE between us?
Gourgeous drawing style as always and in this case also an interesting story behing. And as in other Shiuko Kano's work, there is sex, but not in graphic details, instead sometime all is left to the reader's imagination.
