Professional rivalry, mistaken identities, unrequited love, and jealousy test Shinkawa's and Takaaki's friendship on a semi-regular basis. But when Iwaki Kyousuke, Takaaki's old flame and mentor, returns to seduce Shinkawa away to a new host club, will Takaaki be able to persuade Shinkawa to stay, or will his devotion to Iwaki cause him to lose Shinkawa's partnership?


I really did enjoy this manga. It had a good mixture of dynamic characters and great love scenes. Each volume brought a interesting story line that made me want to keep reading it.

Shinkawa and Takaaki are our main characters they work in the world of host or in other words gigolo's.While Takaai is all into his work leaving his personal life at home Shinkawa is the oppisite which causes a lot of drama for the two of them.

I had one problem with this manga is in the fact that I felt no love between Shinkawa's and Takaaki's. They seem more like sex buddies then lovers. No matter how much I was into the story i didn't like them as a couple. I did like the other characters and I found i wanted more story of those characters then with the two main ones. Sadly not all of my wanted pairings end up together in the end. That's just how manga's or even novel's go. The best stories leave you guessing and the end couple may not  be what you have pictured.
