I liked the first story for its sweet (in personality) Elvis-haired 80's Japanese punk guy, but I wound up absolutely pissed at the fourth one (with the labrador); "No one else other than Kaoru has the right to judge [this pitiable lost-dog-like man for the years of sexual abuse he put Kaoru through]"...uh, YES THEY DO. They SHOULD judge him! It doesn't matter if he's like a lost dog, if he even is (I don't see it, and anything the author tries to set up is expressed through two lines and is an incredibly weak argument); he should have no excuse for what he did! If you're going to portray him seriously as a rapist, don't tack on a feeble excuse right at the very end to try to make his character suddenly unjudgeable. And I mean, even the seme guy wasn't likable with his typical if blase seme-like manipulation (the way they first wound up having sex was confusing, but it come to think of it, it was at least dubiously consensual, portrayed in a "seme tops uke aggressively" manner), but I can't even articulate how much its warped message at the end pissed me off without cursing up a storm, so I'm just going to leave it at that...

I don't remember all her dramatic works, but with this particular one-shot, in short, it's like she thought about portraying it seriously (instead of just smut like a lot of yaoi, though there are others like this one), but didn't bother looking into the social and psychological consequences of the situations she put her characters through, and as a result played it up as cardboard cut-out drama instead with a weak and terrible message tacked on at the end. Her comedies I do remember; they're usually mercifully more light-hearted and better written for it.
