Summary: A strong-willed high school girl and a hot, young scion of a business empire can’t help trying to outwit each other every chance they get… But could these opposites be conning themselves out of the perfect match?!
After her older sister refuses to go to an arranged marriage meeting with Takane Saibara, the heir to a vast business fortune, high schooler Hana Nonomura agrees to be her stand-in to save face for the family. But what happens when Hana meets Takane is an unexpected pairing of utter opposites!
The meeting between Takane and Hana ends in an explosive manner, and Hana is convinced that she’ll never have to see that awful Takane again. But Takane actually seems interested in Hana! Exasperated by Takane’s immature attitude, yet amused and intrigued despite herself, Hana embarks on a hilarious journey with Takane that just might lead to love!
Review: GAH! Takane and Hana are so cute! I had a stupid, silly grin on my face the whole time I was reading this. I love their back and forth banter. It’s kind of weird that she’s 16 and he’s 26, but they acknowledge the age (and life experience) gap at several points and they think it’s weird too, so oddly that makes me kind of OK with it? I can’t wait to read the other volumes in this series.
*I received a free copy of this book from Edelweiss+ and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
