Can a night of passion lead to a happily ever
Yakuza captain Hayato’s life is a mess. His boyfriend broke
up with him, changed the locks, and kept all his stuff. He can’t crash at his brother’s because
his girlfriend is moving in. And just when Hayato thinks things can’t get worse, he accidentally gets
blackout drunk and wakes up in the arms of a clingy underling.
Masuo believes he and his boss made a deep connection,
but when he’s blown off the next morning, he feels lied to. Assigned to run a failing
pachinko parlor, Masuo is determined to turn it around to prove himself to
everyone…especially his sexy superior.
When Hayato realizes he’s falling for the young parlor
manager, he is more than ready for fun. But as Hayato’s tragic past comes back to
haunt him, Masuo wonders if he’s ready to carry all Hayato’s baggage.
Can the unlikely pair learn to accept each other and find
their way to happiness even while new challenges arise, or is their love destined to fall like
balls through a pachinko machine?

January sucked. Hayato always started it with a New Year’s
hangover. Then came the anniversary of the worst day of his life. And that wasn’t including
the cold. At least the snow was pretty sometimes, but January storms usually skipped the
happily-ever-after fluffy snow and went straight to freezing rain of doom. No matter how
many layers Hayato wore, he always froze his balls off. The whole month should be tossed
out like a used condom in a love hotel’s trash.
If he stayed in bed, he could pretend the calendar had
never turned. He could go back to sweet December when nothing bad ever happened and
the world was a blur of sales and romantic dinners. Or maybe he could stick with his current
plan to spend the whole month of January drunk until the thirty-one days of hell passed and
February dawned, if not warmer, at least a little brighter.
He hugged his pillow closer, then gagged, his sinuses
assaulted by the stench of sweat and cum. Like the hangover wasn’t bad enough. Only
January 1 and already the month had lived up to its reputation as the one of suffering and
Hayato threw the pillow off the bed and rolled onto his
back. Furry pink walls shocked any remaining sleep out of his system. The matching sheets
and heart-shaped tufted headboard confirmed it. He’d spent the night at a love hotel. No big
deal. No one wanted to spend New Year’s alone. The sound of rushing water in the
bathroom signaled Hayato needed to leave before things got complicated.
