“Shiina.” He bit his lips at the sound of the sweet voice that reached his ears. He ignored it. Sasagawa’s hot lips pushed softly against the exposed flesh that peeked out from the neck of his parka. “I can save you ...” Sasagawa spoke as if he was the only way out.

Beautiful. Cool. Shiina Jun has always been admired by females around him. But he would give up their admirat

This book is terrible, but good lord do I love's a guilty pleasure.

Too much unrealistic scenarios, unrealistic rections, unrealistic characters...the whole thing is just silly. But I enjoyed it thouroughly :P

First, I’d like to say that it isn’t uncommon for yaoi stories to have a teacher attacks student theme. It’s popular and, it sells, especially to the younger, female populace in Japan. But it isn’t near as marketable with the mature readers like myself. A plot like this is predictable and riddled with non-consensual sex scenes, which can almost border on illegal–depending on the characters ages. But then I would be comparing apples to oranges, as to what white and Asian cultures view as acceptab ...more

I have no words for what I've read, except for Hatred,disappointment,discomfort, agony, and otherwords that mean bad that I can't think of or spell. THis book is terrible, the story is just dumb, and preverted. Although, there were parts I liked, but only because they didn't have the main seme in it. I hated the uke and seme, the seme was a pervert and the uke was stupid as hell. This book is not for me, obvisously, but thats no excuse for how much trouble it got me into. Do not read this book i ...more

To be honest, I only read the first few chapters at best. I could not get past the rape of the main character. The thought that there could be a relationship after that did not sit well with me. I know that it is often a theme in these books, but this was too much for my taste. That was good money and part of my time I will never get back. is it possible to give negative stars?

I loved this book. I love forbidden love affairs. They're so full of love.

“Immoral Darkness” by Miya Matsuda is a romance book with lots of drama. The main character, Shiina Jun is a high schooler with a family that doesn’t pay attention to him at all, they only care about his younger brother. Shiina is one of the most popular kids at school but he gets tired of the girls fawning over him and he’d give up their affection just to get his family to notice him or get his chance with true love from anyone. His teacher Sasagawa notices Shiina and without realizing it, star ...more
When I started this book, it took me a while to get into it since Sasagawa really isn't a likable guy. I sympathized with Shiina whenever he thought that the man was just horrible. Reading about them in the beginning to maybe the middle of the book was just plain frustrating.

It picks up in the last quarter of the book when Sasagawa starts showing a little bit of emotion aside from his normal "I'm a dick and this is how I've always done things so it must be the right thing to do" attitude. We ge

Recommends it for: People who do not question yaoi plot cohesiveness.
This book thoroughly employs what is one of the most puzzling concepts in yaoi. Yes, I am speaking of the rape=love equation that exists in many yaoi manga and novels.

"Immoral Darkness" has a fairly understandable plot and interesting characters. Though it gets a bit confusing around the point where the uke begins to actually like the seme. There is an explanation given but it is not a very good one and you'll be wondering when the author thought up such an excuse. The one thing that will proba

He couldn't forgive Sasagawa for sleeping with someone else. But maybe there was something fundamentally wrong with his teacher. Sasagawa loved women and his good looks certainly didn't hurt that. It was understandable that he engaged in such indecent behaviour.

Your feelings on this quote above are likely going to dictate the way that you feel about this book overall.
For me I very much did not like it.
It was manipulative.
It was twisted.
Every relationship in the book had some weird degree of sk

My god this is horrible
This is like one of the worst yaois I've read and I'm including fanfiction I read when I was twelve in this list.
This is so so bad, and full of cliches. And does the writer even know how male anatomy works? Well I've seen that terrible misrepresentation of male anatomy a lot in mangas but ugh
I don't know why I kept reading, I guess I was trying to find out if it would ever get better but nope, it got worse.
That final problem/stupid drama towards the end? Seriously, too

I liked this story. I felt bad for the student Shina and the way his family life was. I'm not sure how I felt about the other main character the teacher, and the way he treated Shina. I did like Shina's homeroom teacher and his wife I thought they where nice and I liked how they had wanted to help Shina out.

Woooh. This one was not the easiest one to read as it had family issues, non-con and even another unsavoury element in it but nevertheless I rather enjoyed this one. I loved how Shiina grew through the course of the story and found Sasahara to be very anti-heroic but ultimately not a bad person. Still, he could've done without some of the things that he does lol

Inappropriate relationship between teacher and student.... Surprises along the way along with non-con and bisexuality.
