Dear Anonymous Readers,
Let's just call him X - the first and only guy I've ever loved – also the first and only guy who's broken my heart. I used to think that trauma caused by ugly breakups was only a thing in books, movies – and yes, manga – until of course it happened to me.
On hindsight, I really should have known better. He had so many issues it was only a matter of time before one of them drove us apart. And even if that hadn't happened, we still wouldn't have worked out. He was this perfect, gorgeous guy who had everything going for him while I...well, let's just say I didn't turn out to be this super-smart girl everyone thought me to be.
I hate him as much as I fear him, so much so that even in my dreams I can't make myself think of his name, much less say it. It's like my mind's completely blocked the sound of it, and now his name works like a breakdown trigger. If I let myself say his name, that's it, and believe me – what happens after isn't pretty.
So yeah, it's that bad between us, but I'm determined to put it all behind me now. I've moved to another country, doing my best to get my shite together. I've even made myself attend a goukon (a group dating thing) in hopes of finding love again.
Everything's going well...
Until I bumped into him.
Bloody. Bloody. Bloody hell.
The sight of him has my world spinning out of its axis, my face draining of color, my throat locking oxygen out---
I can't remember feeling more terrified than I was at that moment. But the worst thing is – I can't remember when the last time I felt so alive either.

I liked the characters
For the sake of saving face on here, I'll try to reign in the feels this book gave me. I enjoyed it a lot. There was a tantalizing reveal every other chapter, and I loved it. At first I was very sad about Yuki and KC's breakup because of how much I adored their first story, and you'll have to understand that when I saw KC in other stories in college, I wanted to die. And then I saw that this was finally out and I couldn't read it fast enough. It was... something else, for sure. I don't know how to say it without spoiling anything for you, but I will say that although I had a few hard times with it, the next scene quickly explained it all and then I felt better again. KC is a character you don't see a lot. She's a young woman who loves and doesn't stop. At times I thought she was a crazy stalker and it was kinda endearing, a little frightening. I was worried she'd come off really pathetic but one of the things I love about her is how much and sure she is about someone. Like I said, you don't get a lot of characters like her, someone who whole-heartedly believes in their love for someone. A lot of times when things get hard and we get scared, we close off or move on, to keep from being hurt any further. But not KC. She endured it all, knowing it was nothing because in the end, they had love. This story was a total heartache love fest for me. He was a jerk, and mean, but then he'd do something unexpected yet not, like keep her safe, watch out for her when she didn't know it. It was like a layer of truth kept getting pulled back to reveal something else for me and that really made this book amazing for me. I love that she didn't stop, no matter how many times I'd cry hoping she did just to save herself the pain. I thought it was really good, and seriously, it's one of the reasons why I love this author so much. Definitely recommended if you love anime, manga and that good Korean drama because this reminded me of it a lot, being a fan and all. Those who don't know those things may not get or appreciate the humor and intentions, which is a major shame, but yes. Check it out.
