Review by Kris

According to Juné's website, Loving Gaze is described:

"Kazumi is the beautiful head of a design office, and he's head over heels for the younger Yajima, one of the top workers at the building next door. But Yajima is uncontrollably jealous, and so he comes to the office at night -- and kidnaps Kazumi!? A tale of adult love full of sexy situations, this book combines compilation and lots of new material in a story of a company head vs. a nymphomaniac!!"

I honestly wonder what book they were reading, and what they were smoking when they wrote that explanation. Loving Gaze is nothing like that. It's a sweet tale of love from a distance.

Kazumi Mizuno owns a graphic design business and falls in love with a man who works in the posh office building next door. He longingly gazes at this beautiful man from his office window, but feels that his love is unrequited. One day at lunch, he happens upon his mystery man in the restaurant he eating at. The man introduces himself as Atsushi Yajima. He comes off as a bit aggressive, but sweet. Mizuno is immediately swept off his feet.

Often times when feelings are confessed, it's usually at then end of the book, right before they hop into bed for a hot session of sex. In this story, the confession is at the beginning of the story. It's quite refreshing.

Mizuno is a bit of a workaholic, and feels as though he's neglecting his lover, Yajima. Yajima, though a bit frustrated, is patient and is willing to wait for Mizuno to be ready. When Mizuno finishes up his work, he runs into Yajima and some woman in front of his office building. Feeling the pangs of jealousy Mizuno runs off into the sunset. Yajima followed and they head back to Mizuno's office to clear the air. Luckily, the woman was just a co-worker, and Yajima has strong feelings for Mizuno and no one else.

This is a fantastic read. The story follows Yajima and Mizuno with only one side story. The side story involves an employee of Mizuno's and a boss at Yajima's company. It also is a cute story. The art is pleasing to the eye. My only complaint is that our two semes look like one another and ukes look quite similar. The sex was highly erotic and I seriously needed a cold shower to get myself in order. All I can say is wow! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sweet stories and hot sex. Juné knows what they're doing with their larger size, wider margins, and higher quality printing.
