This novel is really well-written with emphasis on the internal turmoil/emotions of the MC and ML. There is actually very little outside of work interactions/scenarios between the MC and ML. With the sparse scenes between them outside of the AV film shootings, it doesn't seem like the relationship was built realistically or on any concrete reasons, so the story felt more like a porn novel with little to no plot to speak of. The only bright side is that the inner turmoil of the MC in turning from straight to... more>> gay is portrayed very well and the ending is a HE.

Overall, the story was alright in the sense that the plot is slightly lacking, but the smut scenes were *whew* intense, very intense, which I appreciated. The novel is more bittersweet than heartwarming and left a lot to be desired, hence I took one star off the rating, but would still recommend it to any bl lovers (for the smexy scenes huhuhu~). <<less

It was a truly interesting read that also made me love the BL genre even more! I usually don't go for the modern kind of books and like ancient settings more but this did not put me off and actually piqued my interest more!!

Guys I think this is the healthiest relationship I've ever seen in BL, like what is this soft gay????? Feeling uplifted after reading; even though the story is short, it's effective. Also, and perhaps this is to be expected given that this is about filming porn, there is a lot of spicy content lol

SUPER CUTE. I was expecting more flippant characters since they are filming GVs but unexpectedly their love is so serious. None of the expected jealousy problems that are prolonged, just a sweet story that won't give you a headache.

Closer to 3.5, but I'll just round up.

Pretty cute and fun read! I read it in 2 short sittings. The MC is funny and somewhat relatable in his thoughts, and the ML is very... possessive and seme-ish, but not in an unattractive or off-putting way. Their interactions are cute as well. However, while it was pretty enjoyable I'm not sure I'd revisit it. I couldn't get very attached to the characters (the short length didn't help here) and I didn't find the way they fell in love to be particularly...... more>> riveting, I guess. The story just didn't stand out very much to me, even though it was cute. I was also kind of underwhelmed by the love scenes, but seeing as all the other reviewers seem to be quite satisfied, I think that might just be me being desensitized from having been a fujoshi for too long, haha.

Lacks some depth, but honestly I'm pretty sure this story wasn't meant to be very deep, so that's okay. I'd recommend it for a quick read, perhaps as a lighthearted break from a longer novel.

Spoiler

Was anyone else left wanting an explanation for Ruka's "friend" + Ruka's relationship with his dad? Felt like there was a huge story behind those that definitely could have been fleshed out, or at least explained...

I'll be completely honest. I'm the type of person who judges a novel based on the novel description so when I first found out about this novel, I skipped it just because I felt I wouldn't like it despite the high ratings. The only reason why I read it was because I was browsing the translator's website and I forgot that I've come accross this novel before.

THANK GOD I DID!!

This novel is so good! The only downside was that it was too short. I wanted MORE!

There are no words to describe how cute the two are! I highly recommend reading this as it is a good read, it not only shows the elevation of the two’s love but also the visible struggles that a person may have on their relationship.

Although the beginning can be hard to get through, one because of the MC’s thinking and two, because of the ML, it is actually worth it. The two did not start on a ‘fall in Love at first sight’, and ironic as it maybe... they fit... more>> the role they had applied for~ Best of all... Those smut scenes are a gracious gift from the heavens to us, rotten people!!! Caution that the terms used can be... Very explicit causing major nosebleeds or squealing (but it’s worth it you know?)

Story Rating: 4/5

Character Rating: 4/5

Development Rating: 3.5/5

Total Rating: 4/5

A major thank you for Kleeps for the amazing translation!!! <<less

This was an absurdly sweet romance. Despite the setting (I usually avoid this trope, in fiction and in fanfic), there's really nothing icky about the relationship between the main characters. Instead, their interactions develop naturally and the main drama comes from the MC getting over his internalized homophobia.

Overall, this novel is gentle and sweet with spicy smut scenes and is just a pleasant joy to read.

Not a bad read at all! I was a little nervous considering the AV setting and the issue of the MC's debts, but thankfully everything's more or less consensual. Much of the drama really is in the MC's psyche, as he struggles to come to terms with his attraction to the ML, his s*xuality, and more. The ML is also quite cute, and though he pursues the MC, he's not yandere or anything like that. You really end up rooting for them a couple.

Also the smut was A+.

A shout-out to... more>> the translator as well. The prose was pretty fluid and there were very few mistakes, all minor and non-impacting readability. They really did an excellent job, especially since s*x scenes can be pretty difficult. Kudos! <<less

This was a little unexpected for me. Unexpected in the sense that the story telling was way better and more thoughtful than what I expected. I'd gathered that it was more than smut, but still...

It's so good, I'd give it a high review even if it didm't belong to the smut tag. I say this because usually I have very low expectations for this genre in terms of good and moving tory telling, so whenever they have a little essence beyond s*x it deserves a little star, while I have... more>> more stringent requirements for other genres. That said they rarely get 5* stars

4* in terms of pure story telling: The backstories of the MC, though described simply is relevant to the characters experiences, struggles and perceptions. Which results in letting him conquer the wound in his heart withoyught making the affaire unrealistically mellow dramatic. The struggles and experiences come of as genuine yet there is a sene of humble simplicity that give enough realism to this story to allow it to stand on such a high level of story telling.

Side characters though not described in great detail play a relevant role in the story in terms of allowing character growth and adding to the faded bitter-sweetness of reality, while also playing the typical 'spurs on with jealousy card' on the ML and MC.

The smut: The smut is very detailed, different from others of it's kind that I have read where the phisical acts are sort of glossed over or exchanged with metaphors. A lot of descriptions of the characters emotional experiences of both the s*x and the surrounding environment is added and stays true to the conflicts of the protagonist up until that point and its after effects are concise in their influence on the character development.

To summaries: The story telling beyond the smut give a very warm and sweet feeling that comes with hurt and growth, while the smutt is solid and comes of as real.

A good read which might well leave you pleasantly surprised. <<less

This is a story that will give you diabetes XD with a healthy dose of smut. It's straight to the point, no random plot twists nor random drama nor random detours, sweet and fluffy, read this while eating marshmallow (or tofu, I love tofu), and enjoy.

It also takes on a realistic view, I recommend this, go read it if you're searching for your perfect guy/girl, you might not find him/her, but at least this story will comfort you. (*˘︶˘*).。.:*♡

Absolutely adore this story, it made my heart warm and fuzzy yet still had a very healthy dose of nosebleeds.

I would definitely recommend reading it.

I confess, I started reading this for the smut (oh such top-grade smut though), but grew to love it so much for the writer's handling of the emotional development between the MC and the ML. This is definitely something I didn't expect from a gay video plot. I was grateful there was no unnecessary third party, and the most that the two had to overcome was the MC's internalized homophobia.

This delightful blend of deliciously well-written, nosebleed-inducing smut and rolling-in-the-bed fluff is on my fave danmei/yaoi list, and I heavily recommend... more>> it for any fujoshi/fudanshi/open-minded reader. I also must commend the high-quality translation; it certainly made the read much more enjoyable.

Come on! Give it a try, lucky you. It's now completely translated and you don't have to wait weekly like we did (though it made my day every time I saw a new release on my feed) ! <<less

How do I even put into words how sweet this story was?

It contained the right amount of sweetness and sinfulness, full of s*xy scenes yet filled with tenderness and love of the main characters beneath it, fulfilling my yaoi need.

I'm sad that it ended, but it ended nicely and was well paced, unlike some of the novels on here who has hundreds of chapters that can be condensed into 10 chapters.

Hope for more stories like these!
