From Liquid Passion:

When business leads Haruna to Nakagawa's family-owned brewery, it's love at first sight for Haruna. Too bad that Nakagawa and his crotchety grandpa can only say "not interested" to his offers. Will Haruna ever secure the distribution rights to the best sake in town? And more importantly, will he manage to win over the cantankerous brewer's grandson?

Ahhhh, hurry, Kawai-sensei, hurry, this is so cute!! *-*
Haruna was kinda whiny at the beinning, but he's getting better!
And Nakagawa is just so adorable in his "I pretend that I don't care but I actually like you"type <3
Let's see what happens, their relationship is developing!

Totally looking forward to the next chapters. I've read up to volume 2 ch.9 now and the story is cuter than ever. Haruna is so adorable and I love his honest personality; Nakagawa also has a sweet side that makes me fangirl happy. Although I like Kawai Touko's angstier stories, this one is refreshingly fluffy and good for a light-read. Can't wait fore more~

if only there was more mangas out there like this one. I love the art style since this mangaka is one of my favorites and the storyline is really good so far. The uke in this story is the kind of character that captures my interest in a yaoi manga, so i can't wait to read more. *^*

The end of chapter 3 was such a cliff hanger!! and of course people always end up walking in at the wrong moment

warm & soft & addictive... such a good bit of art expressing the gentle emotions nicely. Want to see more tender Haruna chasing rough Nakagawa, stealing glances & kisses... want to read more like this!

I really wanted to love this(because I spent money on it), but I did not. Don't get me wrong, it was the most terrible thing I've ever read, but it had some holes in it which made is just so-so for me. I never really got their getting together. It just wasn't developed. The story gave no reason for it other than Haruna's incessant, awkward advances. Nakagawa isn't a very likeable character. He's mostly just cold and grouchy and never really gets too far past that. Haruna, overall, is much more pleasant. I didn't feel like the story went anywhere.

They get together in the first volume, more or less, and from there it's just more of the same.
A lot of the same plot devices are used over and over again, along with others which are pretty overused in general. All that said, I didn't hate reading it. I was relatively entertained, so it couldn't have been that bad. It was ok to waste some time on, but I definitely not a masterpiece.
