What to say about this book. First this is a yaoi or boys love book. Considering I’m a huge fan expect that you’ll see these types of reviews from me occasionally.  I’ll be honest this book has been on my to-read pile for a while. I only picked it up yesterday because I finally got the urge to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. In fact I really enjoyed it. Nice and easy to follow plot line not over ran with porno type sex scenes. Made a nice quick read that was fun. I love the struggle between the two main characters. More details could have been added to make the characters more pronounced. It could have also even gone on a little longer in my opinion because in parts of the book it felt a little rushed. Yet, again not so rushed that you couldn’t follow the plot. It was like reading a small quick and short romance. Which is exactly what this book can be considered. I read this whole book in less than 24 hours. Which doesn’t say much because I’m a quick reader but considering the book is only about 190 something pages with out the adverts. This is a nice book for some one who doesn’t have a lot of time but wants a cute romance to read with out a love of sex scenes.
