This was an exceptionally sweet and sexy read. Although the story is quite short the development of feelings had a very nice pacing. Also it has a really good translation.

This is a short BL story full of the *good* stuff, yet somehow is also light. It's got slightly deeper elements, but overall it's cute and feel-good. Makes for an enjoyable read, recommend!

I absolutely loved this, Novel. This novel takes in the realistic approach of a relationship between two straight men who fall in love.

There were no over the top cliches and no weird drama caused to prolong the chapters. All in all, to those who have not read it. I recommend this novel 100%

Spicy because of the storyline, fluffy because of the romance. Has a nice balance of both elements and a happy ending. A short read for if you're looking for something both hot and fluffy.

This one was so cute to read! It felt like a very short read to me so I finished it quite fast but I still found it to be quite satisfying to read. There isn't much plot in the story and I was a little thrown off by the setting but I looked at the other reviews and they convinced me to try. I'm glad I did because it's a very nice light novel to read to pass the time (though it's better if you don't read it publicly since... more>> it has some NSFW scenes lol.) <<less

This story is certainly full of fluff. At first I was a bit hesitant in reading it since our MC was forced to film an av because of desperation. Left a bitter taste in my mouth when I read that part. Luckily, he met our ml! The smut scenes were also written so well I had a hard time breathing during those parts lol I also like how our MC, as a former straight man, struggled to accept his feelings for the MC. Made it more realistic.

P.S. Don't like how... more>> mc's 'friend' got off so easily tho. He should've been sent to prison at least <<less

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 sexuality 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 as*hole at the beginning but really, he's like... a stubborn cute dog.

very minor 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!


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,


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.

Had to leave a comment because of how good this story is!

I recommend y'all to read this. It just has the right amount of fluff, misunderstandings, and smut. The story focuses on Zheyi and (ML) Ruka's relationship, not much villains time here which is still great.

Ruka, the ML, is honestly adorable and easily fell in love with Zheyi. He's like a puppy, really cute.

speaking of which, haha. He bought MC a dog ~ he followed his friend's advice on how to woo MC : get a dog act like he found a stray one and give it to MC, , plus points if its raining and he is soaked when he gets to MC's house// he does this to get a reason to spend time with MC.

MC sees thru it since he himself has done the same thing before with his ex-girlfriend but still falls prey to the scheme and ML has managed to wiggle his way into MC's life

Quite gullible and pretty assuming guy but he treats MC really well.

Xu Zheyi was once a pretty successful model but got conned by his friend (who he presumably liked) that's why he got into debt. He is on the more cautious side of the relationship and he's self-aware at least and not like super oblivious. Pretty perceptive even with Ruka's little schemes.

All in all, it's a pretty short read and it'd be such a waste to not read it.

If you are looking for something cute, funny, with smut and with a not too long story, this is your novel. I think this is one of those novels, like an average type, that you don't absolutely love in the same level as others but it's simple and you have a good time reading it.

Aw this was so cute and fluffy. Also extremely hot. It was indeed very fast so if you’re looking for plot, lol there’s none. A cute pick me up for any day though! You won’t regret it if you’re looking for something to put a smile on your face.

wow, I was not expecting to like this so much. Like a lot of other comments stated, I'm not a fan of the AV setting so even though this is short, I kept putting it off. However, this was handled very intelligently. It's very sweet and I ended up wishing it could be a little longer; they talked about film #2 and it's aftermath but we don't know if they ever got around to #3 (or did I blink and miss it?). Both MC and ML are normal (no overly-feminine... more>> brainless MC, no r*pey, abusive ML), and a H.E. <<less

This is really extremely good. Its very detailed and realistic in a good way. You can relate to things the MC feels, and the story references several things that dont really stand out to you in reality.

I personally love angst and even though this story bypasses several points that could’ve gotten deliciously dark, I still loved this.

overall, I definitely recommend this.

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

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.

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 p*rn, 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.
