He only needed one thing important to him—and that would be enough.

Kase has been recently laid off. He’s dreading the job search process when Agi, the tough-looking owner of a bakery, calls out to him and gives him a job on the spot. Kase is unsociable and doesn’t know how to deal with people, and the warm friendly atmosphere of the bakery leaves him unsettled and confused. A fire at his apartment somehow ropes Kase into living with Agi, and as they spend more time together, Kase feels helplessly attracted to Agi’s gentle hands. The kinder that Agi treats him, the more Kase finds himself dependent on Agi, and Kase’s overflowing feelings almost overwhelm him…

THIS BOOK IS SUPER GOOD!! I've been waiting for Nagira Yuu's book to be fully translated since I got a feeling that she's a great author that could capture the bittersweet taste of life, after I read the first chapter of Dear Nicole (I even bought the ebook in Japanese though I couldnt read Japanese>< though I'm currently learning)

It's kind of slow burn so far, but their chemistry is already so apparent. The MC is very flawed, due to his childhood experience (which is no excuse) but he acknowledged... more>> it, agonised over it, and wanted to change for the better. He's a lonely person and it was the ML and the people surrounding the ML who sheds light into his life. So far, I think it's a story about redemption and finding love in the process. Super curious about how their story will unfold from now. RECOMMENDED. <<less

Disclaimer: I am the translator for this novel.

This is a story about a man’s struggles within the cycle of violence and abuse and how he runs into a group of former society outsiders who allow him to heal, break away from the cycle, and find redemption.

At the start of the story, Kase Hiroaki has retreated into a lone, solitary life ever since he broke up with his ex. He’s chained down by his lack of social skills and the fact that he had committed domestic violence on that ex. He... more>> yearns to do better next time, to be kinder and gentler to the person he falls in love with, but the fact is, he has no friends—not even a single person to talk to. He clings to a yellow shirt that his ex gave him as his only source of warmth and comfort.

Kase takes the job that Agi offers him at the bakery mainly because it will take time for Kase to find full-time work. As Kase works with the bakery owner, Agi, the baker, Chise, and her young son, Rio, Kase struggles with his feelings as he interacts with them. He finds himself growing comfortable with them—but he wonders can he really belong here?

If you are concerned about how the topic of domestic violence is treated in this story, I will say it is not dismissed or treated lightly. It is a story about healing, but the harm he did is not shoved under a rug.

At its heart, this story is about finding a place to begin the healing process and a place to belong. Kase wants to change, but he doesn’t know how to interact with people. Agi gives him both the push that Kase needs and the space that he needs to re-integrate with people. The people at the bakery un petit nid have backgrounds that have made them outsiders to society in the past, and as bewildering their warmth and friendly banter is, Kase finds comfort among these people and a stray cat that he picks up along the way.

Beyond the pain and the struggle that comes with the healing process, it’s lovely, it’s warm, it’s gentle. These strays have found their own little nest—and for me, this story is truly un petit nid. <<less
