Ok this may not be a review of the actual manga, but I just want to say the description of the first story "Romance" makes zero sense to me. It says "Saeki, the bespectacled beauty of the Systems Department" which is wrong, it's Kurahashi from the Systems Department while Saeki is the returning elite. And what's with the "Kurahashi is the perpetrator of a crime" part? 【・_・?】 Have I been reading the same thing?! (Seriously if someone can enlighten me about that i'd be grateful)

Anyway about the story itself, it's just ridiculous really. I know rape-to-love is common in yaoi, but this takes the biscuit. I felt like I missed a few pages as it jumped so suddenly with no explanation about their feelings. (I don't hate the rape-to-love trope as much as a lot of people seem to, as long as there is at least SOME explanation after as to why their opinions changed - this doesn't deliver)

As for all the other chapters, well they weren't as bad but still lacked believable emotions. I know it's not easy to show much development in just 30 pages but some mangakas do manage to pull it off. This isn't one of them. If this were just a PWP then I wouldn't mind as much, but there's hardly any sex and even the kissing scenes aren't hot.

Overall not the worst thing i've read, but still utterly forgettable. (If the art had been better I would've given a higher rating, but even that didn't save this one)

It's not enough!!! I wish it will be more! It's really good manga. Sweet but short. And i don't know why *cough* all the Seme *cough* have the Seme face *cough*. I mean, it quite easy *cough* to tell who's the Seme *cough*.And too be honest *cough*, all the Seme, *chough* look so *cough*Cool*cough*. It's almost close to my best favorite liking things. So, I love it!

I'm just not a fan of the mangas that turn rape in to love D: "You has raped me...Please stand by-Two pages later-....OMG I love chu!!!" ... What? x_x and the worst thing is that a measly tie can restrain a fully grown man, and they never fight back e_e

Appart from the first story, I liked the rest, they were cute and fluffy ^__^

I agree with Poemi, the first story annoyed me, but the other stories were pretty cute, in a way that needed suspension-of-disbelief, though I didn't understand the point of the civil-servant story. Not exactly content-related, I loved the hairstyle of the seme in the last story and the banana extra was just hilarious xP

Why is Satoru won over so fast after being blackmailed and raped?!
I know, it's just a manga with a typical BL story, but still! bigrazz And then

they're all lovey-dovey but they still have to confirm their relationship?? Sometimes that scenario can be pulled off, but not this time.
The second story about two salarymen was alright, just a oneshot though. I could see it as a volume all it's own. I'm wondering about what the backgrounds of the characters are and how they will evolve...The third story about two lawyers is good. I really like the couple, but the story needed

some smex, dadgumit!
That would've made it even better! XD Last story...gotta say I liked the tall, hunky student with the....petite... salaryman. I thought the art in the last two stories was better, too. Probably because they didn't have the serious business-like hairstyles, haha. Either way, this manga was an enjoyable read that was easy on the eyes! XD

After finishing this series, I'd have to say that Love Romance Sweet Kiss is neither good, nor bad. It's just rather plain. The biggest piece missing from making this series stand out is the artwork.
Compared to her previous works, Love Romance Sweet Kiss is lacking in atmosphere, in character expression and depth. The color scans look better than the main pages, which is disappointing.
Regardless, there's still something about these short stories that keeps you from giving up halfway through. You'll be interested if you have an interest in salary men story lines, or find a simple story better than an unnecessarily cluttered one.
