Someone’s hot for teacher! It’s the lite-novel adaptation of the manga about a student and the teacher he loves and what happens when his passions overtake them both!

It’s a book that plays on that favorite fantasy about the lovely teacher the handsome boy can’t resist. In this case, the student, Hikaru, ends up in a very compromising position. He takes total advantage of his teacher Shima in the worst way and it has a crazy result – the teacher decides to punish him by pretending to date him! You might be going “Huh?” but to atone, Hikaru must raise his grade and date the teacher secretly. It’s a weird relationship. Are they only pretending? Just who is fooling who here? Plus there’s a fellow teacher and past love of Shima’s who is sniffing around again, much to Hikaru’s dismay, a nurse in love with one of the teachers, and of course exams and graduation pressures for Hikaru! Romance sure got complicated for the young and the young at heart!

The story is sweet and racy. Hikaru is a loveable dolt. He’s not stupid, he’s just so impulsive and emotional that he never thinks beyond the immediate feelings. There are consequences and he’s go to learn some self-control! A little savvy wouldn’t hurt either but then the story wouldn’t be anywhere near as much fun! Shima is a curiosity. He’s beautiful and reserved but has a hidden side to him that we learn about during the story. It’s a great one-shot story and is faithful to the manga in every way.

The illustrations are gorgeous. It has a nice double sided full color cover page to enjoy. It’s a very romantic story with the added forbidden love angle to add some spice to it.


IN SUMMARY:
It’s the novel adaptation of the manga about a sweet and impulsive boy who falls hard for his teacher.
