A robot fanboy. An erotic voice actor. Will their secrets overwhelm their love?
Sato doesn’t get out much. The anime company accountant spends his days at a desk and his nights working on his own small-scale robots. His geeky life is like a dream, but it has just one piece missing…
The world only knows Aoi for his moans. The erotic voice actor has legions of fangirls obsessed with his gasps of simulated ecstasy. And his new boyfriend Sato can barely handle the attention.
As Aoi’s popularity rises and secrets about his past begin to reveal themselves, can the accountant and the voice actor rise above their problems to create something real?
I’m so glad I got a chance to read this book. Having read Happy Merry Christmas, which goes along with this book, I remember thinking when reviewing it that there was something missing. And now having read this, I really enjoyed reading about Aoi and Sato.
We are back with these two, and we get to go through a year of them being together. They are so cute together. Neither can really be out where they are and for what they do as far as work, but they more than make up for it in little gestures and when they do get together. Little touches with fingertips or looks they give each other. And when they are in the privacy of their own home, they are so in tune with each other. Sato knows every little sigh or noise Aoi makes and what he needs to do.
I love that in this book the author brings out Aoi’s softer side and opens him up more. He finally feels comfortable enough in his relationship with Sato to tell him about his past. And I love how Sato has always been patient with Aoi, knowing he would open up in his own time. Sato has a hard time sometimes with Aoi’s line of work but only because he wants to be the one to give Aoi the gifts he feels he deserves. Aoi wants to show things to Sato that are just his alone and give him that gift. It’s so sweet and adoring they way they interact with each other and I’m glad the author gave US this gift of seeing these two love each other.
