Sinful Book Reviews

I love romance and erotica. I read a good bit of MM romance and BDSM romance and erotica.

Fruits Basket v. 17 by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, Volume 17 - Natsuki Takaya

Things got really interesting in this one. Kureno has a chat with Tohru about why he can’t see Arisa. There are some interesting reasons that he has to stay by Akito’s side. I was like, “whoa.” I’ve really liked this manga series until now, but things just got really crazy. Now, I’m very impatient to read the rest. He lets Shigure in on the secret (which is way too big of a spoiler for me to reveal in a review). We find out that there is some special relationship with Shigure and Akito. Allow me a short tangent to talk about how much of a manipulative bastard Shigure is. It’s weird though because I kind of like him. I always liked him in the beginning because I thought he was funny, but he can be pretty dark sometimes. This volume definitely reveals his darker side.


Poor Tohru is trying desperately to find the cure to the curse. She’s so in love with Kyo and she wants to save him from his fate, but she can’t seem to find the answer. I’m not going to lie. I’m ready for those two to get together already. They’ve been making goo-goo eyes at each other since the series started. It’s time to admit they feel about each other.


I’m really glad the series is getting more intense. I like it when things are exciting, and the next volume is even better!
