As their secret encounters continue, he finds himself falling in love and is worried that it may not last. Simultaneously, he's scouted by a business-talent head-hunter and receives an interesting work offer. But when he goes to meet them... his new boss is none other than his secret lover!

 

 

Review

Cool Beauty Tsukasa is heartbroken and feeling desolate. With little to inspire him, he resorts to a night of drowning his sorrow in a bottle, if for no other reason than to forget what a fool he was, to have been so taken in by his boss and them dumped when something more lucrative came onto the horizon.

Never in his wildest dream would he believe that he would be picked up at the bar by a man who looks like he could have have anyone he wants, and apparently he wanted Tsukasa and Tsukasa was just in the mood to take him up on his offer.

One thing leads to almost four months of one nighters with the same unnamed man and he was getting antsy. Things came to a head – when he gets a promotion at work to be secretary to the new Sales Director of his company.

He is nervous on his first day and sets out to make a good first impression – He’s floored when his new boos turns out to be his unnamed lover and he is not sure how is life is about to change.

There is so much I love about yaoi novels that makes reading them a treat. Firstly there is the stereotypical younger man and older man scenario that never fails to be predictable, but I am unable to resist and it is no different with CAGED SLAVE.

Tsukasa meets a man at a bar and after a few months of seeing each other without any names being exchanged, he finds out his reluctant name giving lover is non other than his new boss.

With a bad experience under his belt from a past lover – Tsukasa is gun shy about what to do as they have obviously made a transition pass the anonymous sex to a superior and inferior working relationship.

With culture, work propriety and Tsukasa low esteem – the relationship goes better and worst than he could have imagined and hearing some unexpected news only has him making rash decisions that just might cost him the man who has come to mean so much to him.

There is just something about these books, you either love them or you hate them – I don’t think I could explain the voice of the author or the language without – saying that alot of yaoi writing is to some extent feel very emotionless – as the language is such.

How, the premise behind the story is solid and the fact that their is HEA is definitely assured – a yaoi is an experience, and one I am enjoying very much.
