The art is really the only plus here. It's not spectacular but it's still fairly nice. I agree with boycrazy92393 in that the seme didn't have much characterization so it was hard to feel the love from him. And I was actually annoyed by the fact that I felt the uke was actually the opposite of "too easy".
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He does compensated dating but actually turns out to be a virgin? What? It wasn't really clear if the whole 'customers and employees not having a relationship' thing was supposed to mean 'no sex'. Either way, the uke ends up being the really innocent, blushy, not-sure-what-to-do-in-bed kind despite being in a field where he's supposed to be an emotional support for his clients and probably, at the very least, give a little skinship. Oh yeah, and his reasoning is 'I wanted my first time to be with someone I love'. What an innocent view for someone who literally chose to go on dates with mostly married men in order to get higher pay than the average job. My annoyance here isn't the job, it's the fact that the uke seems to choose it just for the heck of it (to make a better buck than a different job) but then the mangaka turns around and says 'Oh, btw, this character is actually the super innocent kind.' In other words, the characterization doesn't match up yet again.
Overall the story was okay, but fell flat on characters.

Hmmm...well the smut scene was very detailed, but I just wasn't feeling. Not for the reason the previous commentors said though (the uke was too "easy"). I thought the uke was fine, but the seme....his expression never changed. Throughout the whole thing...confessing his love, meeting for the first time, having sex...the expression stayed...the same (O_o). So yeah...I wasn't able to feel any romance or chemistry or even the smex scenes because of that. Kind of a downer sad

First manga I've read by Sakura Sakuya that isn't under the Jet Monster name. I liked this one well enough, but the art is really beautiful. I'm a huge sucker for glasses, and the seme had square frames and everything. The uke was a bit easy, but the story was cute and everything was well illustrated.
