Could have been cute

.. but this was just plagued with too much stupidity and terrible BL tropes to be taken seriously. It's not necessarily the fact that the uke was subjected to deceit, rape, violence and treated as a trading good rather than a person that irritated me, it's the manner in which these crimes transcribed that truly drove me up a wall. They're very serious offences, but presented in a light-hearted tone and under the pretence of 'love' and thus automatically all should be forgiven. The seme is an *sshole, uke is an idiot. What can be more romantic than that?!!

Refreshing, Steamy, and Fun!

It is refreshing to find an older seme so immature, and to find a younger uke with a know. I've found that's a pretty rare thing. The art is great - the bodies are *very* nice! Besides the myriad of misunderstandings, the story is cute and fun. There are a lot of references to vegetables - no, not just ecchi references, you perv! I expected there would be a lot more over-the-top ecchiness when I realized this was made by the same mangaka that did "Chintsubu," but I guess it's nigh impossible to follow a series like that with anything just as brilliant. There are a bunch of nice ecchi moments though- I just wish they were more detailed, haha.

Very typical of sensei's other works, but with a more fun flare? I like that the drama did not drag on, but there were a lot of "stupid couple" moments!

Can't wait to read the HEA for the secondary couple, it looks like it's going to be just as fun!

not too awful

This could have been terrible. For me, it was really saved by Yamasaki. Hongou and Kazuha are both idiots. Sometimes this is funny, other times it's just annoying. Without Yamasaki, I don't know if this would have worked. He is level headed, kind(and gorgeous, fyi) and spends most of the series facepalming the others. That said, the series as it is, is not bad. I do love Yamato Nase's sense of humor and there are times when it shines. This is worth reading if you like her other works, though it's not my favorite.

One of The Yummier Recipes for Yamato-Sensei

This 2-volume tale by Yamato-sensei was delicious! It had just the right ingredients for a basic but endearing story: a handful of tension, two handfuls of sweetness, a whole splash of humour, and even a dash of non-con frustrated possessiveness for the angst-lovers among us!

All three men (the main couple, plus the business partner chef) were clear, vivid personalities that were likeable, complex and interacted with spirit and recognition. The main couple were both quite unique in their perspectives--one adorable, innocent and devoted; the other teasing, but sincere when he needed to be; I simply couldn't help but to keep turning the pages as they interacted together.

The art is beautiful and bright; the narrative plotting and page structure is so smooth that there was not one pause in my enjoyment of this fun tale.
