    Wealthy young executive Tatsuya Soga is trying to trace the younger half-brother he hasn't seen since they were both children, when their father divorced his second wife and threw wife and child out of the house. While Tatsuya's waiting for the detective's report, he goes to a friend's bar for the evening, and has a bad case of love at first sight when he sees a young waiter playing the bar piano. Haru seems interested in him in return; which isn't surprising because as rapidly becomes clear to Wealthy young executive Tatsuya Soga is trying to trace the younger half-brother he hasn't seen since they were both children, when their father divorced his second wife and threw wife and child out of the house. While Tatsuya's waiting for the detective's report, he goes to a friend's bar for the evening, and has a bad case of love at first sight when he sees a young waiter playing the bar piano. Haru seems interested in him in return; which isn't surprising because as rapidly becomes clear to the reader, Haru knows who Tatsuya is and still hero-worships his adored older brother while being convinced that the Soga family must hate him. Tatsuya quite innocently proceeds to seduce Haru in the belief that the attraction is sexual on both sides, leading to much angst the next day when he finally gets that report with a recent photo and the current name of his long-lost brother... Emotional ups and downs follow as Tatsuya tries to protect Haru from the knowledge that they're brothers, while resisting Haru's attempts to get him back into bed. It gets all the harder when he discovers the shabby conditions in which Haru lives, and feels he has to take Haru to live with him. There's more than one twist to the tale before reaching an ending that's more or less happy and leaves them together. This is a single-volume story, so the plot's not that deep, but there's still a solid story that's got more to it than just an excuse to throw two pretty young men together and spice it up with a suggestion of incest. And it's well set up, with the nine year age gap between the men making it plausible that Tatsuya wouldn't recognise the 17-year-old he last saw as a child, and Haru having a good reason to be in that bar. The characters are interesting and pleasant people. Tatsuya is a decent, kind man who cares about other people, and while he's pushy when he first seduces Haru, it's an honest case of mis-reading signals rather than refusing to take no for an answer. Haru's believable as a teenager who's pretending to be older than he really is, but who's still vulnerable inside. There are also some good supporting characters, in particular Haru's older step-brother from his mother's third marriage. This one has plenty of explicit sex, but it's there to serve the story, which is good news if you find sex boring without a story to go with it. It's not as graphic as in some manga, but it's erotic as it is. The artwork is excellent, and apart from the colour cover there are also two very nice colour plates inside. The physical production quality is extremely good, with heavy paper and crisp reproduction of the art. The subject matter's going to squick some readers, but if you can handle that, this one's well worth a look.

    A favorite mangaka and trope of mine, I have the paperback copy from DramaQueen which I treasure. Another publisher that I wished I owned more of their books!

    It cracks me up when anime or manga makes you think something is incest then turn it around like oops no we're not related in order to make it less taboo and scandalous. Look guys if you wanna write about incest, do it, it can provide an interesting story line if you care to delve into it. My main problem with this manga was that it literally had no ending, you find out yet another twist , the main character broods about it for a second then there's a moment of silliness and it ends. they don't It cracks me up when anime or manga makes you think something is incest then turn it around like oops no we're not related in order to make it less taboo and scandalous.

    the start of this book was so fast pace for me because they got right into the sex scene. But,in slowed down a little towards the end. it was an alright read I would say, it slightly reminds me of brother x brother but that's better in my opinion. if you are deciding to read this book brace yourself for the spelling and context mistakes. the start of this book was so fast pace for me because they got right into the sex scene.

    Trigger warnings for Lies & Kisses // Uso to Kiss: incest, mild rape / dubcon scene, homophobia, underage consensual. I'm going to come out straight away and say I really don't like incestous toned yaoi. I think it gives a bad name to gay men, and it can be used harmfully against gay communities.

However, Lies & Kisses really shocked me. I won't spoil anything but there is a plot twist about three or four chapters in that really changes the tone in the whole manga and it's strange to say the least. I really like the characters a whole, I find they have a lot of depth, and their designs are absolutely stunning -- albeit a little stereotypical in uke and seme designs. There isn't much of a plot line, but the plot that there is is well done. The sexual scenes are shown to have preparation, and the uke caring for the seme, letting him know that he's going ot start moving etc. I think that this yaoi has been done splendidly, if you don't read the extra two chapters. It's well written, well drawn and in a strange way addicting. I wanted to stop reading after chapter 2, but I ended up reading the whole thing, dragged in by the mysterious tones each chapter finished with, and before I knew it, I had finished the whole thing. In my opinion, the last two special chapters ruin this manga, and I would recommend missing those; however, I'd actually recommend this manga. It's the rare one out of thousands where I recommend a potentially harmful yaoi, but either way, it was really enjoyable.

    I really like Masara Minase, but this time her work hit a sour note for me. Just as the title states there is a lot of deception and sex between Tatsuya and Haru. From page to page, the story weaves back and forth, twisting truth with lies, as these young men fall hard for one another, even though they don't know if they're really related or not (half-brothers). The art is great and the story interesting, but it turns out they are in fact half biological brothers, which means the underlying them I really like Masara Minase, but this time her work hit a sour note for me.

The art is great and the story interesting, but it turns out they are in fact half biological brothers, which means the underlying theme is incest. In the beginning, according to the plot, I thought they might be step-brothers, which I don't care much for either, but can tolerate. Certain sexual fetishes turn me right off and incest is the biggest one. I don't care what combo it is, it just wigs me out, and unfortunately this book wigged me right out. So the only reason I've given it the three stars is because of the art, character development and plot. Period. As for the incest, no thanks.

    This is SO GOOD FOR ME. What the description doesn't cover is that there's a lot of "Are they actually related or not??" and who knows what when. I mean, LIES and KISSES, there's a whole lot of both. If you want to know before going in, (view spoiler)[they really are blood related. (hide spoiler)] And I love the side characters so much, too, and I would love a thousand stories about them and their reactions to Haru and Tatsuya's relationship and I just wish there could be MORE.

    LOVE! I picked this one up without looking at the back or anything, just because I love the author so much. So imagine my surprise when the opening words are "Sir, we've found his mother but we can't find your brother." Gay Marmalade Boy Squee! I mean....look at them! (Talk about love at first sight.) This manga is too cute for words. Instant favorite, this one. I should note that the "are they aren't they" game may make those of you with ye olde incest squick kind of uncomfortable, so you might LOVE!

    First of all, I love this mangaka's art. It's just beautiful. Second, this story is not for the faint of heart or easily squeamish or squicked out. There are so many twists and turns regarding the relationship between Haru and Tatsuya that by the end when the real truth was FINALLY revealed I was a bit shocked. Let's just say that the title is VASTLY appropriate, and I loved it. It's a great volume, presented in a very clean way, and I enjoyed the story. First of all, I love this mangaka's art.

    This manga was a good read, not great, just average. The art is great as it alway is in this mangaka's works. The story was good, but I still had some questions in the end of it. Maybe that's just me who was a tiny-winy bit too slow to grasp the main points of the plot, but I still can't get over the felling that it was actually the book's fault..

    There was so much hype around this manga that the end result left me a bit disappointed. Folks kept rec'ing it all around the net so I thought that it would something truly awesome. In the end, it was a good manga but if it wasn't for the ending where the author did not take the easy way out and rather went with the more controversial solution I would have given it only three stars.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I just finished reading this last week, and it was definitely a cute story. It might not be the best choice for some, considering some slight incest themes, but it's not in your face enough that you remember it every single time you look at the main couple. I personally forgot that they were brothers until it was mentioned a couple of times. I just finished reading this last week, and it was definitely a cute story.

    Twist ending. The ending was different enough to stand out against other BL books--as well as the author's other works (sadly, her characters/situations are all run-of-the-mill stories, and she keeps using them over and over...) which made me give it this rating.

    I loved the art, and the story was okay. Actually, this kind of forbidden love is Not My Kink at all, but it was written in a way that took the subject almost seriously (at least considering it's a manga). It's nothing extraordinary, but it was a good read. I loved the art, and the story was okay.

    Maybe a bit conflictive for some, as the topic is quite taboo, but it was nice. I didn't like the drama in some of the parts, but I loved that Haru wasn't a little drama queen girly-girl. The graphs are simply beautiful. Maybe a bit conflictive for some, as the topic is quite taboo, but it was nice.

    First, the art alone is enough to get this manga. But this story is also very good. It makes you question your morals a bit. It has strong emotions, good angst for the characters, and a natural sweetness. One of my favorites.

    I liked this one much better than "Lies and Kisses." It was less melodramatic, and slightly more probable. Enjoyable, at least for a moment. I liked this one much better than "Lies and Kisses." It was less melodramatic, and slightly more probable. Enjoyable, at least for a moment.
