9781598160109: Love Mode, Vol. 1 (Yaoi)

Sakashita Izumi, your typical straight high school student, gets into a sticky situation with a gay translator, Takamiya Katsura, when he gets mistaken for an escort (coincidentally also named "Izumi") from a gay dating club, B&B (Blue Boy)! The two go on a date, Izumi goes all the way, and now the older man's in love with our young hero and possibly converting this initial homophobe into that which he fears. Though Izumi tries desperately to deny the feelings of desire and trust he's starting to have for Takamiya, it's quite a struggle especially with Takamiya constantly showering him with compliments and affections and Izumi again winding up in his bed when he's left in his care for five days. Golden Week, a week off from school, also gives the two an opportunity to vacation together but at Takamiya's short-tempered friend, Aoe Reiji's summer home (he also happens to be the owner of B&B). The climax that reassures the trust and care the two men have for each comes at a party held on the last night of Golden Week at the summer house when Takamiya has to prove his loyalty when he's caught "kissing" the original "Izumi" escort from the first chapter! The two's story ends here with a definite relationship starting but Izumi still afraid of having more sexual encounters with Takamiya. However, the extra bonus chapter at the end of the book is good old fan service involving Izumi being drugged up by aphrodisiac-ridden chocolates to let down his guard about sex and the ever-responsible Takamiya relieving him of his overwhelming lust. Although Izumi and Takamiya were the main characters in this volume, following volumes will focus on other acquaintances'/friends' gay relationships. For example, Aoe Reiji and his young lover will take the spot light in Volume II.
