I am the first reviewer of this book. The cover is beautiful and what drew my eye to start with. It is put together well, but as I began reading the story of Sakura and Kate, it made me a little uncomfortable - not because it is a lesbian romance - but because of their age difference and because Kate is a teacher having a sexual affair with a teenage high school student. I found it difficult to get past that as their relationship developed and they visited some pretty shady establishments to continue their affair. The plot would have been more intriguing if Paul's true colors were hinted at earlier in the book. I had a hard time feeling sympathy for Kate when she was cheating on Paul. It went on for so long that when the truth was revealed, I still couldn't muster much feeling for her.
I did feel for Sakura. She was a well developed persona, very likable in the way she handled others' feelings. Her crush and all her emotions were painted well. I empathized with her jealousy, and her confusion. I felt she was taken advantage of and put in a bad situation by Kate. Over all, the book was an okay read, between 2 and 3 stars.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
