Goodreads Synopsis:

A fan-favorite series by adored author Yonezou Nekota continues in single volumes.

Playboy Maya catches studious Nemugasa cheating on a test and to ensure his silence blackmails him into doing whatever Maya wants!

After nearly breaking up, Maya and Nemugasa finally go on their hot springs vacation, where their passions reignite! In fact, Maya becomes so besotted with Nemugasa that he gives him a couple’s ring to “ward off any poachers.” But after their return, Maya is approached by the mysterious Ruka, leaving Nemugasa as the jealous one. Is the shoe finally on the other foot?


In this volume, Maya meets an older guy on campus, who he at first brushes off and has no interest in, but soon enough is pushing Maya and urging him to find out what he actually likes and is good at. While it causes some drama between Maya and Nemugasa, it works out good for Maya in other matters. It also causes some fun in the later half of the volume.
This volume also fills in the holes from Akira's separate book, and we get to see the drama between Maya and Nemu regarding the kiss. This ended up being a push for them that they needed, and it was actually super sweet and fun to read.
I love this series, seriously so much. It was nice seeing some relationships resolve some things, and it was good seeing Maya and Nemu get to push their potential careers forward.
There's drama and steamy and fluffy goodness in these volumes, and I cannot get enough.
