Not really worth reading

Only reason I gave it a 2 was because there was a tiny bit of hot sex/teasing. But that's about it. I don't like stories with kidnapping especially if it leeds to Stockholm Syndrome, nor rape. So this was really not my cup of tea.

One of the worst books I've read so far, and there were already some really bad ones.
The first is to have the Stockholm Syndrome, coupled with the Mafia and the parents who have fled because were not, as so often, in a position to pay and left there their child as a means of payment. In the beginning, the boy thought he had been 'just' kidnapped. However, before he undertakes an escape attempt, he says but how he atracktiev but finds the man.
Back home, he meets two of the kidnappers henchmen, they explain everything to him and attack him after, just at the moment, rescues by his kidnapper. He then asks him (quite the gentlemen mafia boss he is) doing what he wanted and now he does everything for him. He breaks down and confesses to him that he wants still to be imprisoned by him. What a happy ending.
The second is a pretty boy who has and gets everything, but as always, not the new beautiful man, this time a teacher.
He dosn't care anymore, before he gets 'raped' by one of his admires, his knight in shining armor shows up, confess es to him that he did fall for him the first time he saw him and that he won't let him go anymore, sleeps with him, and the next day he dosn't care that he has a date with another one. What a lovy-dovy couple...
Stereotypes about stereotypes, unfavorable told with bad drawing.
Not a good drawing, and even worse story. I find it not worth reading.

The series was bearable, but it was only something that I decided to look at since I had free time. I suppose you can call it cliched, with the fall-in-love-with-your-captor syndrome applicable, but it wasn't downright terrible.

The art's not bad, but I've read other works by Higashino You, so I suppose I could have just warmed up to her style, but nonetheless, if you are looking for something to read to pass some time (and you like this sort of genre), then by all means, read it. The story wasn't fantastic, but it's not one of the worst series I've ever read.

Is it just me, or does the character 'Taiga Ren' the model pop up in alot of manga? xD Im sure this is the third manga i've come across with him in it, and im sure at least one of those was by a completely different author/artist... haha. Oh well, hes a cool guy so i guess he's just that popular? Anyway, i enjoyed both stories, though the first made a greater impact on me. The art isn't too bad either, though its not entirely to my taste either. Im happy to give this 7/10

I haven't read such a bad story in a long time...
in the first story there is this guy that is kidnapped by an yakuza boss and then raped every day -bdsm style- At first he wants to run but then he keeps thinking that seme is a pretty cool guy so is awwwright and decides to stay lol
The second story is even worse if that is possible and there is no sex to make up for it, just tons of angst and annoing characters.
And the art is pretty bad too. I just gave it a 3 for the sex in the first story.
