Toya Sakurai has always wanted to get his hands on Kai Hodaka's books before anyone else, so when he is assigned to be the bestselling author's editor, it seems like a dream come true. Kai Hodaka, with a slick face and a sinful voice, is the subject of numerous rumors and gossip, but Toya is more intrigued by the glimpses he sees of the real man behind the stories: quiet, insightful, and with a hidden kindness to him.

So when Hodaka makes a shocking proposal, Toya almost can't believe it: Toya's body, in exchange for Hodaka's manuscript. It begins as a simple business arrangement, but under Hodaka's skillful touch, Toya's defenses crumble, and his simple life begins to spin wildly out of control, leaving him yearning for more.

Enigmatic author...morally bankrupt celebrity...which is the real Kai Hodaka, and will Toya find out before he loses himself entirely?

Preliminary (Unknown/40 eps)
I was so into this story I couldn't wait for the last volume but I felt so let down by it.I felt like it was just a filler volume and continuation of volume 3.Until volume 4 each book moved the story and the couple along,there was progression,but in volume 4 the was just whole lot about the publishing of the Hodaka's books and even that seemed rush.I just feel like the author didn't know how to end the series,I would re-read volumes 1-3 but I think I'll pass on 4.
