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.

Summary: Hana has to continue to pretend to be her sister and Takane’s fiancĂ©e after Takane’s grandfather expresses his desire to meet Takane’s prospective marriage partner! But she’s totally out of her element at a party hosted by the Takaba Corporation, the largest conglomerate in Japan! Just how the heck is she supposed to pull of these high-class hijinks?!

Review: Fancy parties, cherry blossoms, and stolen kisses - oh my! I love the way Takane and Hana bicker and tease each other. Neither one wants to admit that they actually like the other one for real, and it's just so CUTE. With Hana it makes sense because she's a high school girl, but shouldn't Takane know better? And suddenly a rival appears?!

*I received copies of both these volumes from the publisher and Edelweiss+ in exchange for my honest review.
