Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ, Multi-cultural/Multi-racial Romance, Romantic Comedy
Losing is a thing Japanese pop star Ryuu Shiwasuda does not do – certainly not gracefully. Image is everything to hot-headed Ryuu. Sure, his macho bluster is only a cover for shyness and social awkwardness, but he takes it (and himself) very seriously.
So when gratingly cheerful punster Hiro Takahashi delivers the ultimate insult of letting Ryuu win at a video game, Ryuu is cut to the quick, and vows swift vengeance. Can't be too hard to beat a dork like Hiro, right?
Wrong. As Ryuu chases after his elusive victory, he's forced to add more and more items to the list of "things to beat Hiro at" – and is shocked to find that Hiro's quirky charm is sparking never-before felt desires in him.
Ryuu's life and career have no place for a male lover. But he's already in too deep. Can he risk going all in? And what does he stand to lose if he doesn't?
