Goodreads Synopsis:

Opposites attract—but do they get married?! A contemporary adult romance about a couple who can’t agree on what their happy ending should be.

Successful career woman Asuka Takanashi has an old-fashioned dream of getting married and becoming a housewife. After her long-term boyfriend breaks up with her to pursue his own career goals, she encounters popular newscaster Ryu Nanami. Asuka and Ryu get along well, but the last thing he wants is to ever get married. This levelheaded pair who want the opposite things in life should never get involved, except…

Successful career woman Asuka Takanashi has an old-fashioned dream of getting married and becoming a housewife, but popular TV newscaster Ryu Nanami would rather die than ever get married. Ryu’s work brings Yuko Sakura—the married woman he had an affair with before he met Asuka—back into his life. Is she the reason Ryu will never marry?


This is the josei manga I've been wanting them to publish all along. I love it.
We get some third party interruptions in this volume. Ryu runs into his ex again, and there's rumors about them, and conflicting emotions inside him regarding her. She's a mess and he's being pushed to help her, while at the same time trying to stay true to Asuka.
Asuka, on the other hand, has been proposed to by a man who wants the same things as her—for her to be a homemaker, married with a husband. It's making her reconsider her real feelings behind wanting to be married and be a homemaker, and if it really is about a specific guy or not.
It's interesting to see their conflicts about what's happening, their insecurities, and the ways that they find comfort in each other, even in just holding each other. It's heartwarming, honestly, and really sweet to see it.
I love the maturity in all of this. Everything is handled with real thought and consideration, no freaking out for no reason and making rash, mindless decisions.
I just want more books like this, and more of this series in particular. I get excited every time a new volume arrives.
