But while years of pining came easily to him, physical closeness does not…and he’s having trouble navigating the intimacy that comes with marriage. Sumika, too, is having trouble bridging the gap between friend and lover…what is this innocent couple to do but navigate it together, awkwardness and all! A new rom-com from the author of Ao-chan Can’t Study!
