my first exposure to Hoshino, after being warned that a lot of her work was meh but this one was good, and yes, i liked the stories about the souda family, although i would have preferred it if the uke in the Mr Flower Bride stories didn't CRY ALL THE FRICKIN TIME. on the other hand, i found the two one-shots included with this bland (the bodyguard story) to ick (the imekura one), not so much for shota (although i'm certainly no fan) but for the uke's excessive, pathetic girliness. in fact, why ...more
A silly setup but endearing characters.

I find the guys generally quite attractive. VERY marked difference between the manly half and the could-pass-for-a-girl half of the pairings, but I liked that the "bride" flipped from one to the other between the first two stories. Similarly, in "Even If It Costs Me My Life," we have the older bodyguard looking younger and more feminine (and, in fact, crying after getting saved by his client). Interesting, although again it really doesn't do much to empower
The strongest part of this was the the main story, but the side stories (other than Mr. Flower Groom) seem extraneous and take a disturbing turn into shota, for me. In addition, I found the uke a bit on the wimpy side, and that's saying something. Still, I enjoyed it overall.

It was not what I had expected, when I found it it was under the 'erotica' section in the bookstore so I had imagined it being a tad more you know, erotic. It was sweet and it had it's moments, but I was disappointed that there wasn't many complications or problems with the characters having to marry the same gender other than maybe a few comments on the matter.
If you want to read something that is sweet and without complications then you should read it, but if you are more into reading about h
The first story was cute and i liked it. The other oneshots were a bit boring or really too short to keep me interested.
The problem with Lily Hoshinos stories is that they are fast paced and therefore mostly superficial. Yet she manages to make me like them (most of the time at least... it didn't work for me with Love Quest tbh). I can hardly understand it myself!

Wonderful Story

I liked the story line in general. It was put together well and the artwork was great. There were some boohoo moments.
I really liked this book. I kind of wish they went on a little more into their life after.
