An incredible yaoi manga by Yuki Shimizu. Published in North America by BLU.
The entire story revolves in some way around a male escort service called B&B. The first volume focuses on Sakashita Izumi and Takamiya Katsura who come together by coincidence (?) and a major mix up with B&B.
I believe there are 8 volumes in all. Each volume centers around a new couple who are, even in the smallest ways, connected to each other somehow. For example, volume 2 is about Aoe, the owner of B&B who is a constant thorn in Izumi's side in the first volume, and Naoya whoe he meets and eventually falls in love with. ( No matter how much he tries to deny it!!)
