Desire: Dangerous Feelings (Yaoi Novel)
reviewed on + 28 more book reviews


This is a translation of a Japanese light novel - what we would call a novella. As such, it is rather short, if not sweet. The books is fairly well-written, and the translation does a good job preserving the tone of the interactions between the characters. The plot is far from complex, outlining a high-school romance between the two main characters. The reason I cannot rate it any higher than two stars is how the author treats some of the subject matter. Specifically, this book as sex scenes which involve either dubious levels of consent, or (in one case) active non-consent. I understand this may be a cultural difference in how such subjects are treated, but I personally just cant say I found the book enjoyable.
