Hmm this has a very typical plot. The idea is nice, guy loses his lover, can't get over him, another guy comes in to take over and then there's a twist. I can't really point out anything that was special. Very typical and yet enjoyable. I couldn't sleep last night and ended up reading this and finishing it in a blink of an eye. That's why I said its interesting. It keeps you going even if it's all this.
The characters were so cliche. Especially Yuuki. I hated his character. Ok yeah yeah yeah, you lost your lover and are too horny to just leave it alone so you sleep with another guy....and then feel guilty about it? Honestly, I wanna choke the life out of him. Other main character Kamishiro was more tolerable but still annoying, like seriously why can't you just say whatever you wanna say instead of playing around. Oh I forgot to mention Shin, our love triangle protagonist, he was also very VERY annoying. Like out of all the characters he was the most annoying one. So yeah, if you're gonna read this, be prepared of the annoying characters.
Character development, there's nothing, it's just Yuuki. So no comment on that.
Artwork was however beautiful. That's a big thumbs up for this novel.
Enjoyment level, hmmm around 7 I'd say.
Would I reread it? No. Was it worth the first time? Yes.

Hope that gave a clear review of what you're about to read smile

The whole story had a soft, quiet sort of 'gently-falling-snow' feeling as Yuuki slowly worked through his grief and learned to love again. There were occasional bouts of the wind picking up (Shin as the s*&t-disturber when pushed by Kamishiro's appearance in the story) where I thought a storm might descend, but nothing raging ever came. Still, I didn't regret experiencing the beauty that was.
