Romance author April Moone's obsessive love of anime and manga (to be honest, anything Japanese) inevitably led her to the yaoi genre. She wrote for years for herself and online venues but never dreamed she'd see her own fantasies in print. While she's not talking to the characters in her head, she loves reading, digging in her garden, riding her sports bike, or just playing with her two Australian Shepherds. Despite the naughty she writes, she blushes easily and can sometimes be found sporting a mane of purple.

Manga artist Kobayashi Haru blushes easily and falls in love even more so. When he meets the aloof Sakurai Aki, he tries to convince himself he’s only interested in friendship. But the more he sees of his new friend, the more he's drawn to the cool beauty. Only Haru’s shy manner and firm belief that Sakurai is straight keep him from showing his real feelings.
Everything changes the moment Sakurai offers to sleep with Haru. Haru has reservations, but he’s falling for Sakurai, and it’s impossible to say no. Despite Sakurai's private nature, their relationship blossoms and seems perfect—until Haru learns Sakurai’s secret. Furious and hurt at being used, Haru cuts Sakurai out of his life. If only it were so easy to cut him out of his heart.
Reckless, flamboyant Keigo is bisexual. Blunt, aloof Masaki is straight. Their conflicting personalities make them unlikely friends, but after some careful maneuvering on Keigo's part and one strawberry-flavored kiss, Masaki gives more of himself to Keigo than he ever thought possible. More than he's willing to share with his girlfriend. But Masaki's fear of commitment threatens to shake their rocky relationship to pieces.
Keigo's new feelings for Masaki are confusing enough even before his on-again, off-again lover, Kaname, blows back into town. Kaname is a manipulative beast, demanding Keigo's undying fidelity in return for his cruelty, and Keigo's fragile relationship with Masaki cracks under the weight of his presence. If Keigo really wants to build a life with Masaki, he'll have to discover the strength to free himself of Kaname and convince Masaki to be with him forever.
