5.0 out of 5 stars A charming love triangle with 3 gorgeous guys!, September 27, 2009
By 
This review is from: Cigarette Kisses (Paperback)
This is Nase Yamato's 3rd release in the US and has a serious and mature story line. I enjoy this love triangle one shot and find all 3 guys appealing even if each has his own flaws. I like the company setting too. The guys forced to feed their cigarette addiction in the smoking room is an all too familiar scene in the white collar world and so is one testy remark. Who would have thought 3 guys smoking away could be so sexy!

Yusuke, Soji and Masahito are close friends during high school and as usual I just love all her cute chibis in the flashbacks. But it is more than friendship as both Soji and Masahito find themselves falling for Yusuke even as Yusuke only has eyes for Soji from high school to college years to their first job in Soji's family company. But these feelings are never revealed and took a setback when Soji married at the tender age of 22. 3 years later, all these long buried but never forgotten emotions resurfaced and these 3 close friends are now forced to confront their unresolved feelings. The plot flows smoothly with its drama, angst filled moments and emotional twists and turns. As in some of her stories, her uke is pretty strong willed here. One seme does come across weaker in character while the other is more aggressive in his pursuit of his childhood love. I am not going to reveal who gets the uke but the journey there is one enjoyable read with its emotional ups and downs. A little non-con here but absolutely necessary to the plot. The ending is satisfying and the last bonus chapter is cute even as I feel sorry for the seme who lost out. Very glad that Deux has picked this one up and of course I love Nase Yamato's lovely artwork with her gorgeous guys.

I loved Nasa Yamato's pet on duty, which I found hilarious at times. This one couldnt be more opposite and not in a bad way at all. She really shows off her talent with this serious plotline and great story. Plus her atrwork is beautiful as always. In my opinion her story lines and artwork makes her stand out among all the other yaoi artists/authors . If she keeps this up she'll quickly be my favorite manga-ka.
