After a staggering betrayal by his college girlfriend, Kazuya gets just desperate enough to give it a try. But he quickly discovers how complicated it can be to ‘rent’ an emotional connection… and his new ‘girlfriend,’ who’s trying to keep her side hustle secret, will panic when she finds out her real life and Kazuya’s are intertwined in surprising ways! It’s sweet but na-ve boy meets cute but ruthless girl in this 21st-century manga rom-com!
