    Hot Gimmick 12

    This book is the last book of all the series. Hatsumi loves both Ryoki and Shinogu, but its time that she lets go one of them. She lets go of Shinogu, but he promised to be by her side and always be her brother, even though he sent in the ammulment forms. Later on, Ryoki asks Hatsumi to marry him and, theres no obligation there. They finally get to 'do it' with of course Hatsumi's 'okay'. Very good book.
