Steal Your Love by Himekawa Hotaru and illustrated by Kuhji Tatsuru is an eminently forgettable book. I had read it a while back and had found it lacking. It wasn't particularly bad either, so I figured I wouldn't post about it. But upon looking at the book again, I realized that I rather like the art. So...I figured I'd share the prettiness. XD

I'm going off my (not particularly good) memory of this book because I don't really feel like rereading it. The main character is an actor who has been pigeonholed into a certain type of role. He's all image and notoriety. He visits a host club with some girl who's a fan of the number one host (in the city, apparently). Turns out the host is his old classmate, which is a big shock since the host had been an honor student, student council president, son of a prominent politician. He gets totally smashed and wakes up in the middle of hot gay sex with host. He's fucked good and hard, but wants to pretend it never happened. He's popular with the ladies, he doesn't need (or want) some guy, no matter how hot he is. Especially since it's the host, the guy who had seemed to be part of a completely different world (actor ran with the delinquent crowd, I think). But in the end he goes back for more sex from host and they become fuck buddies. There's some kind of plot, something about the actor wanting to do "real" acting (he wants to play the role that had inspired him to act) in a play. Of course the two hot men have been attracted to each other since high school (i think host was aware of the nature of his feelings but actor was in denial and/or clueless-land) and after an exciting stabbing (I think it was a stabbing--or am I confusing this with another story???) they end up together. Basically it's the tale of the actor growing up, facing up to his feelings, and learning to not be a cad. Very cliched and very blah. To me.

Okay, enough "plot." Onto the pics...


Host gives actor a kiss on the hand when he first "introduces" himself.

There's something shocking about waking up to a dick up your ass, no?

Just plain pretty.

Why do these men always show affection when the other guy is sleeping/unconscious? Just come out and confess already! GAH!

I think this was actor being pressured into giving sex for the part by the director of the play. I don't think he put out.

I have no clue what's going on in this scene. Obviously, host is mad about something. He probably had very good cause because the actor is such a child in so many ways.

Love the hand under the underpants.

Host looks hot and actor looks adorable in this one.

I love the pose of the actor as he takes of his shirt while looking up at the host.

Pretty, pretty pictures, though the summary itself was... "Meh" XD

LOL. And his expression says "omgwtf" so clearly.

Heh, I think how I summarized it contributes to your "meh" reaction. But truly, it is "meh."

I love his expression, truly the artist captured the moment. ♥
