Short and sweet! I read it all in one sitting. Some details were left out but I don't feel to bad not finding out what they were.

I am not a fan of av setting, however I think this is very sweet and fluffy. Not the usual dirtyness you feel when reading settings with av, prostitution, slavery etc since they are all reasonable people. A good happy ending with little conflicts and lots of smuts.

Short, sweet, and simple. No unnecessary lengthy self realization nor conflicts. No exaggeratedly annoying cannon fodders. Just them finding love with each other regardless of genders. If you want a short fluffy relaxing (and spicy 😉) read then this is for you.

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

Have been procastinating this novel for awhile but I finally read it and no regrets (tho I had to put off reading some nsfw parts in public hehe but I finished it in a day). Their romance is so fluffy, I dig that stuff (^_^). Hope this novel gets the attention it deserves!! 10/10 more people should read it!!

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.

This was a really nice and quick read! As most reviews already mentioned, it talks about the struggles of a man coming to terms with his s*xuality and fear from past experience and a man coming to terms about his feelings. Since this is a short novel though, it wasn't really "expanded" (?), it didn't take them 130+ chapters to unravel their feelings is what I meant. If that's what you're looking for and not this, I still recommend that you give it a try. The ML may seem like... more>> an asshole at the beginning but really, he's like... a stubborn cute dog.

very minor spoiler...?

Spoiler

He trusts his friends a lot, takes "Do I Love Them" type of quizzes, follows corny romantic advices, and pampers his wife very well! A good boy!

[collapse]

There IS smut; they've done some adult films and have met through one, but their relationship is healthy. It's sweet, and little to no drama. My only complaint would be,

Spoiler

I wished that the author addressed Ruka's friend (who filmed his AV and told him not to show his smile to anyone else but him) a bit more... seems very weird and suspicious, it felt uncomfortable to think about.

Wow! I didn't expect it to be this good. Tbh. It's kinda plain, not really that deep or intense. But it's quite fulffilling. Funny, sweet, and the plot is not dragging. Mostly everything resolved.

The MC is not my fav. Plain character. But the ML... since it would be spoiler if I told you, better read it yourself. Lololol.

Translation: 5/5

Plot: 4/5

Characters: 4/5

So more like a 4.5, but the fluff is just so sweet. The plot is straight forward and there’s not much twists. The ML falls in love fast/first and pursues while the MC takes a while to come to terms. Would have liked some more focus on why they like the other, but appreciate the lack of padding in story. There’s smut, but it’s the relationship development within the smut that really got to me. Quick read, light hearted fluff, emotional growth, basically a BL rom com... more>> with AVs. <<less

Like everyone else, I think its a good story with some pretty good realism. I liked how there was a realistic period of denial before his complete acceptance of being gay! Or at least, gay for Ruka. I also wanna give some extreme praise to the translator, who basically MTLs it and then edits it into something coherent. It’s impressive honestly!

damn damn damn

I give this story 5star!!!

It's not too long and too short.

... more>> The bottom and top characteristics are not your cliche stereotype of bottom and top, definitely making this story much more interesting. Arent you just tired with the cliche bottom and top? I've read 4/5 BL novel, and I am tired of the typical characteristis.

It ends at the right intersection, tho the ending is a bit.... rush.

Usually, I dont really like to read more about the support characters, but since the author was detailing them a bit at first, I was a bit disapointed that the author didnt write more about them. <<less

First off, kudos to the translator for her great work and fine taste in novels. The translation is very natural and seamless.

Please don't be put off by the GV aspect--the summary almost makes it sound like an in-depth exploration of the "blackening" of a white lotus as he is forced into the vicious, sordid world of the adult entertainment industry. It is most emphatically not that. In fact, this is a sweet, delightful confection filled with comical misunderstandings, domesticity, and just gosh-darn wholesomeness. The GV in question is basically the... more>> purest, least shady adult video in existence. And the xx scenes are ACTUALLY GOOD! I could just cry.

I want to take a moment to emphasize this point, because how rare is that? This is legit the first danmei novel I've read where the xx scenes are legit hot and the dumbass tropes we're all familiar with aka "shou faints from lack of oxygen while kissing", "no lube needed because the gong's fiery passion will sufficiently lubricate his oversized jj/the shou's ass is mysteriously secreting fluid even if it's not an abo", "shou falls unconscious in the middle of getting xx'edand can't get out of bed for the entirety of the next day because the gong is just~so fierce and overbearing~", etc, do NOT appear at all. Like, I have read novels that I loved and I just quietly accepted these scenes thinking that they were just the way things written in danmei novels, but this story proves otherwise. Thank you, author! Just for that, I would have rated this a freaking 5/5. But the xx scenes do not merely avoid these awful, anatomically-incorrect tropes! They are actually incredibly hot and sensual, the best I have read in a danmei. I wonder if the fact that this is Taiwanese plays a role in it. If so, I really hope more Taiwanese danmei gets translated.

Now back to the novel: if this was just a pwp, it would still be excellent. But there's actually plot and characterization! The MC is a really simple, practical person. Just from the summary alone, we already know that he's a small-time actor who gets buried in debt because he got played by a friend. Honestly speaking, if this were another type of novel, he could have been portrayed as a tragic figure. But instead of treating this horrible betrayal as a cataclysmic event that throws him into despair, the author just shows him quietly doing his best to accept it and take the most practical solution to this problem, which is acting in a gay porn film. He never sits around wailing to all and sundry about his troubles, waiting for somebody to rescue him. He just gets up and does what has do be done. ML at first seems like a cold, overbearing-president type, but he's full of pleasant surprises and I ended up liking him so much more than I thought I would.

I don't want to spoil this story any further as it's so short (sadly) that I'd end up summarizing the whole thing at this rate, so I'll just say that both MC and ML are really lovable, decent, admirable people who are in a healthy, respectful, loving relationship. Think about how unusual those adjectives a typical danmei and you'll see what a rare delight this pure cinnamon-roll of a novel is.

Please do yourself a favor and give this novel a try. (ノ◕ヮ◕) ノ*:・゚✧ <<less
