I bought this yaoi novel from Borders thinking it'd just be a nice little read. From the title, and the thickness, of the book I figured it'd be light and nothing heavy. It was exactly that. The characters started out somewhat interesting, but became less so as they never seemed to evolve. This was like a starter yaoi novel, if there is such a thing.
June usually puts out some really good yaoi novels, but they really dropped the ball on this one. The novel is filled with so many grammatical and spelling errors that one would think a child edited it. Page after page, there were huge errors, which can sometimes ruin the novel because you'll just run across the errors and have to re-read the sentences for them to make sense. Its just a huge turn-off for me when reading, because I don't feel like I should have to edit 1/2 of a published book.
If you want something with substance, growth of characters, and relationship development please go read another novel. I'd only read this novel again if I was truly bored out of my mind. The translation is bad, but the story is worse and predictable from the beginning to the end of every sentence.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the uke, who is a Japanese American and a fireball, at least until the very end when he goes all ukey during sex. Until that point though he's a strong interesting character.
I found myself wishing there was a book two to this. For all that the two heroes spent time together, they spent a fair amount of the book apart and it would have been nice to see more attention paid to when they got back together. They jumped into relationship pretty easily. It was quite understandable why the seme fell for this uke, but not as easy to see why the reverse happened.
Still, the plot didn't have any of the hackneyed cliches BL tends to, and no rape or non-con, just an honest story about two guys with similar interests meeting, so it was a really nice change of pace.
