Review covers 18 chapters 

Okay, this was pretty good, but before I start exploring let me tell this title even ended up on my list of to-read books. It was right after I finished re-reading Soul to Seoul. This title was on the “you might also like this” list. I got interested because I thought I have pretty much read all available smut romance manga. Apparently I still have a long way to go. Because there was something wrong with my iPad connection to Wi-Fi, whatever I could read at that time was happiness. Don’t worry, it’s fixed (hopefully) apparently my iPad don’t like my abs challenge apps.

Okay, enough with my nonsense, let me get back to the actual story. It was not all  that unique, it followed the “smut protocol” all the way, but nevertheless I had fun reading it, and trust me I finished it in less than 2 hours. The story has action, romance, some smut and tons of tango. I’m in love with Latin dances, though I have yet to learn tango, I have always been attracted to it. But right now, you can call me a salsa person. Okay, enough with my dance take, let’s once again get back to the story. The protagonist is Miu a 17-year-old Japanese girl who was sold by her own mother to Leon Rosas, from a shadow family in the country of Tornado. (don’t ask me here, just accept such country in south America, I do hope it was over there). First Miu is against this whole arrangement., but soon she falls in love with Leon and after the crisis strikes the Rosas household our love birds even marry each other and that’s where the real story and the struggle for them starts.

Tornado is in turmoil, there is revolution, but it only brings despair and Leon and Miu have separated because of it and now Miu is looking for Leon to re-establish their family. There are a lot of barriers on their journey to start their own family and free Tornado from the Tyranny of the army. There are going to be a lot of moments when you’ll think that it’s futile end our heroes will never be together, but will it really? That’s for you to find out, and I hope you’ll enjoy this story. Don’t mind the art, it’s pretty much what was in trend in the 2000s. enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
