I'm not really impressed by the art, smut's OK, story... pfft
Characters' faces seem a little dated and in the bishies case, slightly wolf like. You'd think that'd be OK in the "doing it" scenes, but it's pretty much that same jackal-ish expression the first chapter. Art improves a little over the course of the volume, but it's still very mediocre. If anything, the smut level decreases with every chapter. Overall, the story isn't groundbreaking, your standard fare of a rough male lover physically training his latest victim to start desiring his particular brand of lovemaking through various levels of fear psychosis. They've put it in a nice sequence and wrapped a bow around it to make it feel wholesome, so maybe romance readers might appreciate the developments of chapter 3 and 4 more.

Unhealthy relationship, well drawn?
What to say, that hasn't already been said in the comments? The storyline itself is nothing new, because workplace relationship seetings usually include hardly two people from the same "level". Makes me wonder why, because wouldn't that seem somewhat realistic to being with? Haha.
Anyways, starting off with the imbalance of their positions this also goes for the relationship. The female main character is submissive and the male counterpart rather aggressive, which seems rarely healthy. IMO it was more like she got dragged along by his pace - and didn't even mind, no actually was at some points happy about it, which made her appear even more naive and unfortunately somewhat immature. It would have been good to see, what her goals would be or where she wishes the relationship to develop to. The male character on the other side seemed driven by his desire to suceed at the office - and cover up some hidden complexes, e.g. the one about his height. Sighs.
So, what is the good point? In my eyes it's the decent artwork. Not only the characters, but also the backgrounds are well drawn and eye-candy. So, if you can overlook loads of smut scenes and the weaknesses of the plot, you can at least find some drawing inspirations.
Might not meet the "technical" definition of rape, but it sure made me feel violated
In addition to @*Tessa*'s unfortunate subject heading, I strongly disagree with the post and feel that this manga had all the undertones of an unhealthy long-term relationship. First up is the power imbalance. The protaganist seems to be unable to object against the president in the very beginning when he proposes being FWB. That's a complete abuse of power, sexual harrassment/assault, and a huge lawsuit waiting in the wings. Not to mention that it makes him appear so desperate for sexual attention that he needs to coerce someone to be with him.
I hated the last chapter (surprise, surprise), but me being the completionist, I read it. The "teasing" scene solidified the lack of respect from the male lead towards the female lead. Almost every scene is about him wanting to "get some" from her. The reader is unlikely to take the protaginist's dreaming of "making partner" seriously because it looks like she'll be sleeping her way up the ranks. It is disgusting that the girl seems to have no power and no say at all from beginning to end in the relationship. She might be easily pressured, but that doesn't mean she should suffer some twisted Stockholm Syndrome of thinking that she's in love with him because he sexually harrasses/assaults her all the time.
There's a limit to how much I can take of unhealthy relationships played up as romantic, and this manga pushed all those buttons.
@Dagorkitty, you can't just "write off" completely awful things done by one party to the other(s) in a relationship. Some abused spouses try to excuse their significant other(s)'s behavior and forgive them for it without realizing the danger in that type of thinking. As the saying goes "love is blind" and sometimes deadly. If I had a friend in this type of relationship, I would tell them to get out fast, because the longer someone stays in one, the more likely it is to be fatal.
Gave it a 1 because I couldn't give it -1000.

Well, what I can say is, the story is very cliché, typical plot of a young lady being roped into a consensual act all of a sudden, falls in love, overcome obstacles, and live happily ever after. Not much to say isn't it? A common plot where you can find out there, with the additional of smutty scenes. It's not boring, just very...normal. Nothing exciting, just readable.
cute, funny, smutty
I agree with @*Tessa*, this NOT rape, not even close, she loves him and wants to have sex with him, it's just that she is shy and he is perverted. But he never actually forces her into anything, well, except for ch4, that part is just sad and wrong, well again, i didn't enjoy it, i saw it depicted as something sad that happens in real relationships, at no point did i see it as something right, it was him venting his frustrations on her, which is just wrong, but it happens.
Leaving that behind, the plot is interesting and cute, the smut gives it something more. I liked the relationship between the two main characters, but i wish it were more equal, though it starts going there by the last chapter, i just would have liked it if the emotional part were more developed.
All in all, cute, smutty, interesting, funny, more or less all that, just a cute light hearted (most of the time, except ch 4) comedy.
No such thing as rape!
There is a clear borderline between rape and forceful intercourse that mangaka use in smut titles to make the action more thrilling. It's not rape if: - she likes it - she's not mentally abused [again, she likes it mentally and physically] - the guy likes her and ends up/or is her boyfriend This manga is definitely not falling into the rape category or "fall in love with the rapist" because she's in love with him and even chases after him. The user under me has clearly never read a real rape manga like: Cross and Crime or even Wolf Guy. Those can really be named rape and yes, it gets disturbing after a while, but this one...not even close. I really love this one. I like both him and her: she's clumsy but not really and he's a sadist but he can be gentle at times. It's fun to read . And the best part is that they really do love each other. ^^

There's so much rape in this manga, and so many people think it's hot. Rape is never okay, and I am sick and tired of mangaka getting readers to start to accept it by normalizing it this way.
