From ShoujoMagic:

This book is a collection of steamy stories!

Story 1) I Want to Be Bound by You
Ayuna comes to visit her brother at the hotel where he works, but a case of mistaken identity leads her into the royal suite and the arms of Takano, a handsome young businessman. He's Daidou Corporation's ruthless behind-the-scenes manipulator who handles all of its dirty work. Nothing gives him more pleasure than corrupting that which is pure, and... Ayuna is pure.

Story 2) Steal My Body Away/ Your Heart, Your Person
Terumi and Kazu have been sleeping together at hotels, but the relationship is entirely physical. Can it be called love? This is when Terumi suddenly meets Kyuuji, an intense young stranger who boldly uses her to escape a fight. Because she takes offense, Kyuuji then pursues the fight to appease her. He steals Terumi's heart away, but will the jilted Kazu allow Kyuuji to steal Terumi's body?

Story 3) The Devil's Mask
Natsuki is content in her relationship with Showa, a boy in her tennis club. That's why she despises herself for drinking too much at a party one night and sleeping with the student body president, Kazuomi. He's a devil and a genius who publicly wears an angel's mask, and he tells Natsuki that if she doesn't want her boyfriend to know about her drunken infidelity, then she'll continue sleeping with him in secret. The secret is in danger of being exposed, however, when Kazuomi joins the tennis club. No, not that secret -- Natsuki's OTHER secret.

Story 4) Painful Love
Everyone is a little afraid of Ryuuichirou. He's a gang leader who hangs out in an alley that Norika passes through each day to get to work. Norika is attracted to his dangerous aura and the gentility he displays towards her, but a painful past haunts him that has the potential to be both spiritually and physically painful to Norika.

As expected, the message of love from Shinjo Mayu is Sex 1st + Cheating + Blackmail + Evil dude = love. Its just saying to all female audience if a guy rapes you and then say they love you it means everything is ok, as if!

6/10 cause it wasn't SO bad that I had to puke, and liked last story cauz I love long haired guys :3

Devil's Mask was really enjoyable; it was definitely the best of these 4. Frankly, the other stories were not great. Plots were slim, women were spineless (though the girl in Painful Love was amusing), and the men looked alike for the most part.

I love Mayu Shinjo and smut, and these were nice as prettily drawn oneshots.
My biggest problem with this was how the first three stories had the theme of "I'm really not this type of woman!", and also gave off the stockholm syndrome vibe. I don't mind the theme, but the repetition of it in an anthology is a little off-putting.
The fourth is the best of them, in my opinion.

Overall, for smut oneshots these were reasonably plot-developed and the art is above average, so if you're looking for a quick smut-fix and are a fan or Mayu Shinjo's work, this is perfect.

If you like Mayu Shinjo, you'll love this anthology. It's got some great Shinjo one-shots. If you don't like Mayu Shinjo, then you should really wonder why you'd pick this title to read, anyhow. ;)
