Omokage by Mizuhara Tohru and illustrated by Takumi You is a ridiculous yet somewhat amusing book I mostly skimmed for kicks. The main character is a rather passive, docile, gentle type (ottori) who loses his mother. He'd never known who his father was, but he learns of two candidates from her diaries. He locates one and goes to meet him...And things get kind of nuts. As in yakuza nuts. It's really silly and funny with quite a bit of gratuitous sex.
The main character, whom I shall call doe-boy, goes to the bar one of his possible fathers owns and runs. He has an odd feeling upon seeing the sexy man that any reader would recognize as instant BL attraction but just confused doe-boy.
Doe-boy's prospective father, Daddy-man, sneaks out after receiving a call. Doe-boy foolishly follows. He overhears Daddy-man meeting with yakuza about narcotics. He's caught. Daddy-man protects him by claiming that he's Daddy-man's lover. To prove it they have sex in front of everyone. The yakuza boss accepts Daddy-man's story and orders that Doe-boy deliver the goods.
After they leave the meeting, Daddy-man tells Doe-boy not to come by again. He'll deal with the yakuza. But Doe-boy, feeling guilty about making a mess of things, does not comply. I kind of skipped this part, but somehow they end up at a vacation villa in the mountains or something. I think they are in hiding?
After some time with no sex, they come together and have lots of sex. Including the old-time favorite, bathtub sex. Doe-boy still hasn't told Daddy-man who his mother is.
And outside sex.
Unfortunately, their idyll is interrupted when Daddy-man goes off to meet with the yakuza and Doe-boy is kidnapped as leverage against Daddy-man. The yakuza want to know something (I think where the goods are), but Daddy-man won't talk. He is beaten up pretty badly but when he is still mum yakuza boss decides to take another route...He gives Doe-boy an aphrodisiac and has several of his men gang-bang him. Doe-boy is also forced to give the tied up and gagged Daddy-boy a blow-job. I cackled at the attempt at kinkiness.
I skipped this part, but I think this was Doe-boy begging for mercy or something. Luckily they aren't killed but are rescued. I think by the cops. Daddy-man is hospitalized. Turns out Daddy-man was working with the cops to catch the narcotics ring. Doe-boy hangs out with Daddy-man and Daddy-man's bar employees, but disappears when Daddy-man is discharged.
Doe-boy thinks his time with Daddy-man is over, but Daddy-man tracks him down. Daddy-man knows who Doe-boy's mother is. Doe-boy looks very much like his mother, and Daddy-man had checked out his student ID and had found out his last name.
Turns out Daddy-man is NOT Doe-boy's father. It was the other guy, Daddy-man's buddy. Doe-boy's mom had been a sheltered and docile, gentle, and passive daughter of a good family and had fallen for the buddy, a not very good guy. They dropped out of school and lived together until one day buddy disappeared. Doe-boy's mom turned out to be pregnant. Daddy-man had secretly liked Doe-boy's mom and felt guilty for not warning her about his buddy, so he helps her out during her pregnancy. She didn't want to burden Daddy-man so she disappeared. This mother and son are good at disappearing as a solution to everything, aren't they? I'm pretty sure one of the victims of the narcotics ring was Doe-boy's father, the bad, abandoning buddy.
In any case, Doe-boy and Daddy-man get together and have loving sex.
