*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review and is recommended for mature readers.

Yuri wants a boyfriend but hasn’t met the right guy. While at a party, she meets the exact wrong type of guy and is rescued by Toshiomi Oya; an underboss for the yakuza. While the pair have an instant attraction, Yuri is scared of Oya’s dangerous life.

This isn’t my usual genre but I wanted to check it out because of the huge difference in our main leads. It is a typical fiery girl and tough guy with a heart with some semi explicit sex scenes. If you like insta-love and insta-lust in your manga, this will probably suffice but it was just a meh for me. There’s a power imbalance in the relationship that raises red flags for me but again, this isn’t my usual fare. 3 out of 5.
