What They Say
Natsui Kodaka is a hot, sexy young model with a hip agency. His handsome boyfriend, Ritsu Yasakah has invited him to a gorgeous hotel suite and he expects a little gratitude. But Natsui just isn't ready, so Ritsu finds a replacement that looks just like him! Ritsu has no intention of being gentle tonight...

Includes an extreme bonus episode!

The Review
Picking up where the first volume left off, events seem to have settled a bit, and Natsui and Ritsu find themselves in a hotel together - and not just any room, but in a deluxe suite! Ritsu clearly has one thing on his mind, but when Natsui expresses doubt, the situation gets tense. Of course, with the way this series goes, there's only one way to relieve the tension. With a prostitute who looks just like Natsui, of course! But can Natsui really stand by and watch events play out?

Later on all four models are together and drinking, when they decide to play a game that gets slightly out of hand. The book closes out with several short stories, some with characters who aren't even named, where the story is little more than an excuse for some graphic sex scenes. In addition, there are replacement pages provided at the very end of the volume for the misprinted pages in the first volume, which is certainly a nice gesture.

This volume is an improvement over the last in that Tojo seems to have given up on telling a story that was becoming increasingly hard to credit, and just focused in on what she seems to really enjoy - pretty art and graphic sex scenes. If you're looking for anything more than that, you're not going to find it here, but at the same time this is exactly what some folks have been calling for, a more graphic BL title.
