Format: Paperback
Ryoki has admitted to Hatsumi that he wants to be with her intimately for more than just practice, and she recoils from this prospect. A text message from Azusa on Hatsumi's phone prompts them to meet with him in an apartment he does modeling shoots at, but Azusa is no where to be found when they arrive. Instead are a bunch of his model friends trying to use Hatsumi for sex. Azusa shows up and at first Hatsumi thinks she is rescued, but when he tells her that his Mother had an affair with her Father and his betrayal of her left her depressed and suicidal it becomes apparent why he is dating her. He has decided to take his revenge for the death of his mother out on the cause...through the causes daughter, hence why he has been "dating" her. This causes grief for Hatsumi, naturally, and Ryoki (who is also present for all of this) tries to fight his way out, but it is only when the model's manager, Rina (the woman who is involved with Azusa), shows up that they are able to escape without any harm.

Hatsumi is crushed over all of this. Ryoki tries to be sympathetic, but does it under the guise of her still being his slave. When her sister, Akane, asks him out he refuses and this causes some bitterness between her and Hatsumi. Ryoki tells Hatsumi he wants her to be his girlfriend, not his slave, and she recoils in fear of this, hating the prospect more than the actual slave part. Then there is also the matter of Shinogu Narita, Hatsumi's older brother...who it was revealed is actually not her real brother but an adopted brother... what feelings does he have for her?

I keep reading this because it's good. The overall plot, all of the characters, it's wonderful. Can't stress that enough.

"Hot Gimmick" volume 3 is where the story really starts getting good. Azusa, Hatsumi's model boyfriend, asks her out on a date, but when she arrives, it's obvious that he's up to no good. His twisted plot for revenge is finally revealed. But Hatsumi is even more shocked when her rescuer turns out to be none other than Ryoki, her moody "master"! Also in this volume, the first hint of a relationship between Subaru and Akane.

This has got to be the best volume in the series. Everything you thought you knew gets completely turned around. If you've read volumes 1 and 2, don't hesitate to go pick up volume 3.

This is by far one of the greatest series I have ever read! Highly addictive! It's the perfect blend of romance/comedy but it's still extremely realistic. It turns out that Azusa, Hatsumi's new boyfriend, is not what he seems when him and his friends do... well, I can't tell you or it'll ruin it for you hehe! Well anyways, it turns out Ryouki and Azusa almost switch places. Ryouki turns out to be kind and sweet and Azusa is now mean and cruel. Read it for yourself!

If you haven't read this series you're missing out on AN AWESOME MANGA!!!
I think this volume is the saddest one and i almost started crying through it...but then again, i'm a sap.
Volume 3 continues where volume 2 left off, after Azusa sent Hatsumi his text message to meet with him. Ryoki sees the message on her cell phone and tells her that they'll go together to see Azusa, but when they arrive they get a BIG surprise. To find out what happens to Hatsumi and Ryoki, read the manga
