Goodreads Synopsis:

A charming high school romance between a tender hooligan and an orphaned girl with enchanting artwork by Amu Meguro.

Little did Nao Kogure realize back in middle school that when she left an umbrella and a box of bandages in the rain for injured delinquent Taiga Onise that she would meet him again in high school. Nao wants nothing to do with the gruff and frightening Taiga, but he suddenly presents her with a huge bouquet of flowers and asks her to date him—with marriage in mind! Is Taiga really so scary, or is he a sweetheart in disguise?

Although Nao Kogure was once afraid of the delinquent Taiga Onise, she was soon touched by his kind soul. Nao and Taiga plan a romantic date on Christmas, but Yashiro, Misaki and Futami push their way in to make it a party at Taiga’s house instead. Though their friends leave early to allow Nao and Taiga some time alone, someone else interrupts them—Taiga’s mom!


Nao and Taiga decide to spend Christmas together, but their friends interrupt it. And then Taiga's mother shows up, and things spin in a rapid new direction for Nao. When Nao doesn't come home that night and doesn't tell Sou, he starts acting weird. And thus Nao decides to rebel and run away.
I love this plot line, and how easily Nao does it. Sou is pretty much ignoring her, and it drives Nao crazy, because he is her family and that's not allowed. Taiga agrees, and so he butts in to make them see reason.
It's pretty much all-around adorable. Especially when, after all that, it's valentine's day and Nao makes Taiga chocolate, which he doesn't expect, and then she tries to kiss him and messes up in the cutest way. Misaki also gets chocolate from the only person he wants, and it's so cute.
This series is just utterly and completely adorable wrapped up and I love every piece of it.
