Hmmm...sadly I wasn’t ‘feeling’ this as much as its predecessors - mainly because I thought the scenes didn’t flow as well and nothing much happened plot-wise which is a shame. I did enjoy the last third though involving Riku <3 I think I might wait to read the reviews for volume 4 before purchasing the next one.

Ten Serizawa has a two-hour commute through the mountains to high school every day, so she can’t spend much time hanging out with her friends in the afternoon. She decides to move into the local boardinghouse, where one of her friends and three other boys are living. Ten’s friends consider her to be as oblivious as a rock when it comes to noticing boys and falling in love, but will she be able to keep her calm and steady heart in her new living situation?

This series is like jellybeans. If someone puts jellybeans in front of me, I will pop them down one after the other until they are gone. But I do not seek out jellybeans, because who really wants or needs them. I shall not seek out future volumes of this bland and generic romance series, but if someone were to put a pile down in front of me...

Before starting, just want to state that I read this in paperback, not on Kindle, but the Kindle edition is the only option Goodreads has available. Okay, onto the review.

I have mixed feeling about this volume. I am happy that Ten is exploring her emotions and trying to understand her feelings towards Chiaki and Riku, but at the same time it's not that interesting. Riku is trying to give her space since she rejected him, which I applaud, but Chiaki is trying to put Riku with Ten beca
This volume was hella cute, with some great heart-pounding moments, and seemed more directed on the romance story developing. So, after Chiaki and Ten pretended to date, Rei seems to be off planning new things (I hope he continues to stay out of the picture), but Riku is still a little sad from his rejection. His attempts to make Ten feel at ease, though, are noticed by her, and there is a little awkwardness between them, but also some growing feelings. Chiaki, meanwhile, feels dejected over Rik ...more

Its been a while since I read this series so I kinda forgot what happened but with the first few pages, it refreshed my memory.

I am starting to confused Riku and Chiaki because I like Chiaki and I wasn't a fan of Riku, but I am starting to feel differently towards him.

Chiaki knows that Riku still has feelings for Ten and tries to push together, much to Riku annoyance who is trying to gain Ten's trust.

A clean, sweet read about a freshman girl in high school moving to a boarding house to make friends and be closer to school. Of course, two of the boys who live in the house are handsome!

Sex? Nope!

Swearing/Profanity? Very little. One instance of "what a b*tch" exactly written that way but, of course, we all know what it means...

Violence? Not really.

Magic? No

LGBTQ + characters? Not specified.

Wow!!! Now this series is starting to really shape into itself. I am now 100% behind this story and it's characters! The tension between our main character and her 2 love interests is so great I want more! I am already dying for the next volume! Cannot wait to check it out asap!

These are such trope-y fun, and I'm definitely interested in the outcome of the series, but I also don't know which part of the love triangle I actually ship? Which is a bit weird for me, but for now I kind of like that I don't know and that I genuinely like both options.

Ich kann zu diesem Band eigentlich nicht viel sagen, außer, dass ich was Ten und Riku betrifft gar nicht mehr so abgeneigt bin. Im Gegenteil!

On a personal note, I still prefer Chiaki, but this is fine.

I'm enjoying this shoujo title. I'm going to say that even though I really like Chiaki, I hope that she ends up with Riku - not that I think she could go wrong either way. :)

Loved this volume so much. The plot continues to be amazing, the characters are fun, & the romance is believable even though it’s a slow burn. I can’t wait for the next volume!

Definitely not as good as the first two volumes, hopefully it it’ll get better in vol 4.
