Recently (in April) my reviews for the 3rd and 4th volumes of this series got posted on my blog and made me realise that in all the busy times of March/April I totally forgot to read the other 2 volumes I still had in the boxset! So of course, when I had time, I immediately read this volume and will be reading the next one when I got time. And then it is hoping for the new boxset to arrive on my Amazon + be a bit more affordable. XD

In this adorable book we get to experience two fun holidays with our couple along with house hunting. We see our couple experience Christmas together. Eating out, shopping for gifts (and I loved how enthusiastic Asako got for a gift for Natori), of course there is scent/soap, and there is a sexy scene as well. I really loved seeing them have their first Christmas together. They both were busy but managed to make some time on this day. I laughed (and loved) what Natori did for her the day after, that is so cute!

And then it is time for New Year’s. Which we are spending with Asako’s family. Yep, that is right, Natori is going to meet the fam! And the fam is meeting Natori. Well, Asako’s brother already did, but for mom and dad it is all new and dad especially was just totally stressing out/fretting a bit. I loved how Natori was accepted in the family, and I loved that they also had a serious talk and that dad really did listen. Because he immediately assumed x, while it was actually totally not that. I loved seeing Natori and Asako together.

After those events it is TIME. Because Natori’s lease is coming up and they need to find a house ASAP. I just loved how Asako’s boss immediately stepped in (and not just that but also joined the girls lunch), he is such a good guy and again, I wouldn’t mind a series with him! He lets our couple know what is up and that they need to step up their game. I totally agreed with him, I could understand that with everything our couple thought it would be tight but OK, oh boy, were they wrong.

The house hunting was fantastic, though I did feel for that real estate dude, then again, it is a nice portion of karma for him. Teehee. Didn’t expect that, did you? I loved what he did in the end though, that was so considerate and kind!

I just felt for Natori, and was just like he was so relieved, when he told Asako about his mom. He was so worried that Asako would be the same as his exes. Instead Asako surprised him (I wasn’t surprised though, I knew that she wouldn’t be that mean).

All in all, this was such a fun volume and once again, I just love it when a couple TALKS. Is mature about things. It is such a fresh relief, because too many adult/new adult manga/books just seem to forget communication when things go a bit different. I would HIGHLY recommend this series to all.

Star rating, 5 stars
