“Love and friendship have become quite complicated for these four friends. Yuna and Rio have started dating, and Akari and Kazuomi are growing closer. But now that Akari’s ex-boyfriend wants her back, will Kazuomi find the right time to tell Akari how he feels?” (Goodreads)
I have finally caught up with this series!
I was happy to see Rio and Yuna once again but I did get frustrated a bit because of Yuna’s insecurities creeping up again. I do understand that it’s normal to have the feelings that she did. I’m sure that I was the same way and can even be insecure now as a married woman. I get it. I just think that it has been played up a lot through the series and so it just feel repetitive.
Akari and Kazuomi are still trying to figure out how to tell each other that they like each other. I did hope that the love triangle was just for the last book but it did pop up again. I do usually like love triangles but since we don’t know much about the other guy so I just don’t feel much for the trope. I do hope that since it ends on a cliffhanger between them that Kazuomi will take the opportunity to just say it!
Overall, this was another good one even if I didn’t like everything.
