My Thoughts

Review covers 64 chapters 

Remember my baby boom reviews? And today I have one work that I found during that time, but let's be truthful, you won't find cute babies. You'll find kids, but mostly this work is in Josei genre, focused on the main characters woman and man, who already have kids and end up in a weird situation. BTW, if you've read L-DK and wanted something similar, but a bit mature, this story is for you. Let me introduce our main characters,

Natsumi Okajima, recently divorced, after she walked in on her husband cheating on her. And if you think that's a normal beginning add to it that she has 2 girls and they were with her when she saw a woman with a towel wrapped around her. The faces of the girls are fantastic! Thus, our pretty housewife decides to buy a house with an orange roof. And actually, spends all her divorce compensation money on it. However, the fun starts when she moves to the house and finds a household of three men: dad and 2 sons already there. What happened? real estate fraud. but before we proceed, let's meet our second family.

Shoutaryo Ninomiya, a hard worker, who loves his family a lot. One day he sees the house and decides to buy it. Oh, forgot to mention, before that his wifewalks away leaving divorce papers. Thus, in hopes of her return if he gets a house that she dreamed of. Thus, he makes a prepayment and moves there. But as I have already mentioned he's not alone there.

Thus start our fun story of how two families have to live together and get along. The story is very sweet, romanic and you just don't want it to end. You want to continue reading t to know how the romance between the characters will work out, how the future after the final page work out. I'm totally looking to see the seuel focused on the kids. Ready? I want to make you wait anymore! Enjoy it and don't foregt to comment below! Saty tuned for more reviews as well as promos! on't miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
