It’s always one step forward and three steps backwards as Morinaga tries to negotiate around his boyfriend’s prickly exterior. Deliberately misread signs, spurned advances and enforced retreats—to another country!—put terrible strains on their relationship.

But the cracks in Tatsumi’s harsh façade grow wider as he finally acknowledges how much he craves Morinaga’s touch. It’s a truly touching admission and leaves this reader hopeful that there will be more of this warmth in future novels.

The addition of a story that centers around rape hits a sour note. It is almost like a return to the very first volume in this series, only there is little or no affection on either part of the men involved. One is just a confused closeted male and the other a man bent on getting revenge. Even the hint that the story might be pursued in future volumes wasn’t enough to endear me to this story.
