Overview

A rags-to-riches romance from the creator of Tail of the Moon!

Poor Sumi Kitamura… Her irresponsible older brother Eisuke keeps bringing home orphans for her to take care of even though they can barely afford their own basic needs! Just when Sumi's financial problems become dire, wealthy Soichiro Ashida enters her life with a bizarre proposition: he'll provide her with the money she so desperately needs if she agrees to marry him. But can Sumi fool high society into thinking she's a proper lady? Moreover, is it worth giving up everything for this sham of a marriage?

Sumi tries to get Soichiro’s company back for him, but she doesn’t realize that he’s about to embark on a life-changing opportunity. Meanwhile, Nozomu is hellbent on marrying Sumi regardless of any consequences. Can anything stop Nozomu at this point? Or will Sumi and Soichiro find a way to be together?

So its the last volume. A lot happens. While the ending was good it was also okay. After this, you'd think Nozomu's going to need a lot of therapy. Including his wife. I like that Eisuke changed than how he as at the beginning and that he cared for Sumi but in his own way. This has been a weird, awkward at times series.

I love this series! but like, what?! Nozomu just suddenly changed?! Like, he was so crazy about Sumi, then just suddenly, reality hit him and he realized it's never gonna work and gave up?! I don't think he belongs with Sumi  but, he just changed just like that? i know he realized that it wasn't going to work right from the beginning, but he  tried so hard... why did he suddenly give up? It doesn't make sense to me... :/
