I created a list of 10 Yaoi/BL I would recommend to read this winter. The Winter season can be a difficult time, low sunlight, feeling cold all the time and just feeling a bit depressing. Reading Yaoi is an excellent way to warm you up and to make you feel better during the cold winter months. (and the whole year)
Ah yes, Finder! This manga will rais the temperature 100C, you burning up from head to toes. it perfect for the winter theme as it the night, the underworld of criminal gangs, action, dangerously handsome men, and of course EROTIC BEDROOM SEX!
I talk about highly about Embracing love on social media, as it has everything I love. the drama and sauce will heat you up. The male character is Gorgeous and the bedroom scene is sensual and damn sexy!
Don’t be cruel
Don’t be cruel is a good choice to read this winter. I always read this manga series during the winter months and it fills me up very warmly inside.
Nightime in the winter come earlier. so does NightS. Another great manga to read during the winter as it involves all the activities done at night.
If you want to read a manga that is story divine base, drama and a kinky affair with the Master and Butler. then Blue Morning is a good choice to consider reading this winter.
The Arrogant Prince and Our Secret Love
Needed something a little more exotic? this manga will take you to a first-class flight to the Middle East land desert for much need sun, luxury and a sexy prince.
Our Addictive Carnal Games
Feeling naughty I see you. I don’t blame you. I started to read this manga recently vol 1 and 2 of Our Addictive Carnel game, it’s by the same mangaka artist as ‘Just another Hard Days at Work’ but my God! this manga is really spicy and fun to read.
A Hole in the Wall
And if you feel extra naughty and want pure smut, this manga Hole in the Wall will definitely get the downstair department going (cough cough). there’s an element of mystery to who is Yuji’s customer behind the wall. and yes yes 100% Fire Smut
Love in Limbo
A Fantasy manga, take you on a different realm, where both characters are in limbo world, between heaven and hell. they live normally. the main characters have been to deal with monsters daily to keep everyone safe. overtime their love for every each blossom.
The artwork in Coyote is really artistically drawn with great plot and smut.
I would also recommend reading YARICHIN BITCH CLUB to this read winter as well. But I haven’t this manga yet, it just being released this month. soon when I have a bit more spending money, I will read Yarichin Bitch Club to my reading list.

Smutty, Hunky and Yummy
Hammered and Pounded is very fun and sexy to read. I never thought that I could enjoy the hunky, masculine guy getting it on in the bedroom. it very sexy! I love the drawing style and engaging characters.
If I was in a mood for something sexy and fun, Hammded and Pounded is the first choice.
Kensuke is a happy go lucky guy but he was intimated by his colleague, the handsome Matsui, who is more buffy than him. he gets all the attention. They both don’t seem eye to eye. Then Kensuki and Matsui coincidently were alone, drinking and challenged each other to a bet. A bet is who can come first. Which is a dangerous bet! As one thing leads to another, as Kensuke and Matsui get steamy and physically sexually.
There are full pages of the steamy bedroom scene. displaying the action in every angle. You can’t help but feel a little turned on when reading this manga. The mangaka artist doesn’t shy away from drawing her hunky males characters in a lewd manner. Plus I love how the characters are masculine bodies are drawn. something in the manga, the character bodies are drawn either overly masculine, but Ikuyasu drew them just right.
Both the main characters Matsui and Kensuki have a playful banter. They mock and teases each other, then have bedroom playtime. it doesn’t have a serious plot, the storyline is based on sexual scenarios with both character engage in.
Hammered and Pounded is on the high smut spectrum and Constantly have the male character having sex often through the manga.
The manga included other stories with different hunky buff couples. They are fun to read too. My favorite is the “Carrot and Dick” ( i know it sounds naughty)
Ikuyasu has other manga available to read on Renta which I highly recommend to read. if you love Hammded and Pounded, you should read “Stuck Between a Sexy Rock and a Hard Freind”, A threesome theme yaoi. Or “Read A Perfect Day for a Kitty in Heat” a story with the male character with cat ear.

One word. HOT!
I wanted to read something new. My Yaoi book collection is growing. Soon I be running out of space to store my books. I heard Embracing Love by Youka Nitta, highly recommended by readers. I have read Spiritual Police and I wasn’t a fan of the storyline. But I wanted to read other manga by Yuoka Nitta. So Embracing Love caught my interest.
I say this manga is one of Youka Nitta best. The main characters Iwaki Kyousuke and Katou Yoji are attractive together. Full-on steamy bedroom scene. Youka Nitta has a really nice art style. The drawing is beautifully drawn.
You be never disappointed with the love scenes, it’s extremely spicy.
Two adult film stars iwaki Kyousuke and Katou Yoji were invite to star in a new erotic film. The director request both Katou and Iwaki to perform a love scene in the spot with each other. However Katou still peruse Iwaki outside the film production. Their relationship developed throughout the story. The couple goes through challenges, conflict and emotional struggles.
The manga has a lot of pages, containing both volumes 1 and 2. So there is a lot Plots and reading.
I like it so much, After reading Embracing Love 1&2, I brought the secound book volumes 3&4.
I highly recommend reading Embracing Love series.

Yaoi manga Review video by Dynamite Dylan. Love in Limbo
Title: Love in Limbo by Haji
Publisher: Sublime Manga
Finally, A manga Yaoi review video that is both entertaining and engaging! I really like Dylan’s style of review on this manga. He covers enough information about the plot and what it contains. It nice to have his personal point of view on the manga, and to see it physically. It makes me want to buy it. The drawings looks good and the couple look sweet together. I like the guy blue hairstyle.
He is really entertaining to watch and definitely worth checking him out if you like anything that is manga/ book reviews and personal vlogs,

Punch Up, it has everything I like, Interesting character, engaging storyline, and hot sex!
Plus there are Cats
I did not know what to expect from reading Punch Up. but from the first volume. I’m HOOKED!
What I liked the most about Punch Up is the relationship between Maki Motoharu and Ohki Kouta is nice and playful. I liked that they discover a sexy scenario together and they were naturally attracted to each other. Both Maki and Ohki learn from each other and make a procession in their relationship.
The manga is creative with its layout panels. The character is good looking and has a quirky personality. Maki acts like a horny, silly teenager. He is 31 years old.
Ohki is often a reserved character. He can get aggressive and punch anyone who crosses with him.
Maki and Ohki are like chalk and chess but together in the bedroom they HOT! The bedroom scene does not shy away from male parts (no sir) the Mangaka artist draw the scene in the crudest angle.
The drawing is clean. It has a distinctive style. The artist draws the male’s character eyes very beautiful. I love male eyes drawn beautifully in the manga.
I’m updated with all the volumes and looking forwarded to buy anymore from Shiuko Kano’s manga.

Romance and comedy
Fun, witty and sexy. Combined with smuttness and comedy. I was lucky to find this manga. I discovered it at my local library. It was tucked away covered by massive books. I was surprised to see this manga in a quite library.
At first glance It very smutty but as I read it I actually grown to the storyline. I borrowed it and check if it available to buy on Amazon or Book Depository. Book Depository has a copy to buy for £11.99 (pushing the price), I brought it for £8.99 via Amazon marketplace. I know June Manga are expensive and are rare to have so I brought it immediately.
The Male characters are hunky. Kairou and Togawa work at a toy company, they always have beef with each other. Everyone think they are enemy but behind closed door they are secretly love making.
This manga have 8 stories inside, Kai and Toga the main character and the other are sub stores. The relationship between Kai And Toga is very funny. They say sarcastic words. Togawa always attempts to get into Kairou’s downstairs department.
The side stories are fun to read too. My favourite is ‘Aroma of Romance’ a love affair between a sale man and a scientist.
The drawings are good, it on the masculine style of manga art style. Which it nice to see masculine couples together.
It is a feel good manga, My first choice to pick if I wanted something lighthearted with sauce on top,
I would recommend this manga as put of your BL collection. 4/6 stars
Manga watercolour and Copic illustrations.
During last weekend, I decided to got back into watercolour painting. I chosen to use Hot Press 300g watercolour paper. It has a smoothing surface than cold press.
I like drawing / painting subject with a Male romance and flowers because it very therapeutic to me.
For the characters skin tones I used Copic markers pens. It colours on the paper smoothly and nicely without bleed through the paper or streaks.
I’m planning to create more romantic watercolour illustrations.
Thanks to The Daylight light box, I can easily transfer drawings into watercolour papers. I drafted two drawings on one A4 paper. Theses drawing where copied from my sketchbook.
