Goodreads Synopsis:

Opposites attract—but should they get married?!

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…


I enjoyed the first half of this volume quite a lot. There was some more drama regarding them as a couple, and their living situations, and their differing wants and how someone else wants to fulfill Asuka's.
Though I am enjoying all of this, and I do really like the mature relationship in this series, some of this drama is starting to feel very repetitive and a bit annoying.
While this series has mostly felt more mature in how it handles things, some of that has seemed to waver a bit lately. When Asuka starts worrying a bit about her family finding out about Ryu, and what happens when her brother meets him. Mostly I'm annoy that Asuka is an adult and can do whatever she wants with her life.
Aside from that one point, I liked the progress in their relationship in this volume. They took a few steps forward, I think, and did their best to prove and decide what they want with each other, and why they're good together. Even if I didn't care for the brother plot line, I do think it made them think about some of these things, or acknowledge them at least.
This volume was a bit weak, but otherwise I liked it.
