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…


They're finally getting settled living together, and then Ryu gets offered a promotion, which includes a transfer to America for who knows how long. They discuss and consider it, and then they get to savor the little time they have together until he leaves. Now they get to stick it out long distance, and see how that works. It's a bit emotional for them, but they're trying, and they believe they can do it.
While I do like how they calmly discuss things and try to compromise, marriage is a constant issue between them. And then there's Kamiya, who's been hanging out in the background for a while, but will just not go away. It's clear how he keeps trying to push Asuka, and I don't like it at all. It mostly annoys me that she keeps letting him do it, only brushing him off and yet continuing to meet up with him and converse when they run into each other. It's clearly bad for her relationship, bad for her thoughts, and yet she keeps doing it.
I'm starting to feel like this series needs to end soon. We can only prolong this plot line for so long, and it's growing a bit stale to me. I'm still enjoying reading it, it's just getting a bit repetitive in the drama.
