Love and lies don't mix well, so when art student Tang Tang ropes his friend Chen Qingye into pretending to be his boyfriend to stave off unwanted love confessions from his female schoolmates, complications are sure to follow. Chen Qingye is a closeted gay, and now that he and Tang Tang are fake-dating, he has no idea how to admit that his feelings for his faux-boyfriend are very real. Equally clueless Tang Tang also has secret feelings that he doesn't know how to express, and they only seem to grow stronger as time goes on. Can their budding love ever blossom into something real if neither of them has the courage to tell the truth?
Ahhh, this story has me so conflicted. On one hand it was really adorable and I loved all the fluff. On the other hand it's way to dragged out and the fakeness of it really set me off at times. I was ok with the two main characters lying to each other to get closer thing because thats the whole plot and message. I liked watching there slow burn until the end where it felt a bit drawn out. But the side couple was actually what really made me upset. The blue haired guy didn't just lie he completely pretended to be a different person and I found their relationship to be very disingenuous. SPOILER: when it's reveled at the end that it was all for nothing too, I just felt so brain dead. What was it all for? Their story felt pointless and I kind of hated it. It really took away from the whole experience of the main couple 😕
The art is good, but I feel the storyline is almost a little too basic. it leans heavily on the trope of thinking the person is into someone else even though its insanely easy to see they're completely into each other. Also fake dating is cute but the characters are a little too dense. There’s also not much development because the leads are already best friends. If you're in the mood for very little angst and characters who liked each other from the very beginning, then this is a very sweet read. I liked the author's other series All Of You a little more, and the art style is the same.
