* AccidentalInnuendo: The ''series title''.
* FanPreferredCouple: [=YukinaXShigure=] has the largest following in the fanbase.
* FoeYay:
** A canon example would be [[DatingCatwoman Princess Lilia and The Earl]] in the novel-universe.
** There are also some fans who actually ship ''[[HoYay Shigure/Akira]]''.
* GuiltyPleasure
* JerkassHasAPoint: Hisame might be a {{Jerkass}} of the levels one would think he wishes to reach the likes of [[VisualNovel/SchoolDays Makoto]], but he did have a point when he called Yukina out on her MasterOfTheMixedMessage below. Although unlike Hisame, who toys with other people's feeling on purpose, and laughs about it, Yukina at least has the excuse of being clueless about love and self-unaware about the feelings of those around her.
** Later on Hisame also pointed out how it was pretty cruel of her to [[spoiler: use his and Shigure's lives and private family problems for her novel.]] While she hadn't really thought about the consequences of her actions before, he's not wrong to say you should at least ''ask'' the person first.
* MoralEventHorizon: Hisame, Shigure's brother, was introduced as JerkWithAHeartOfJerk, who likes to spite Mami for his personal amusement, and his brother out of jealousy. But once he reveals that Mami's hairpin, which was her deceased mother's keepsake,[[spoiler: wasn't hers, and that he was the one who gave her the hairpin and made up that it was her mother's, doing so only as a way to have Mami wrapped around his little finger]], he's collecting deathwishes from most of the series' readers.
** If that wasn't enough, his [[spoiler: [[{{Blackmail}} blackmail of Yukina]]]] definitely made him the most hated character in the series.
* {{Moe}}: Yukina and Mami.
* RelationshipWritingFumble:
** MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Yukina. She purposely does ShipTease moments with Shigure and Akira simultaneously for the sake of her novel and can be seen as leading the two boys on.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Akira and Mami for some, since they started going out.
* SeasonalRot: Fans are considering the later chapters this, due to increased amounts of pointless fanservice, {{Flanderization}}, and {{Padding}}.
* TakeThatScrappy: As of Chapter 61, Hisame [[spoiler:gets rejected by Mami HARDCORE, to the point that she wont love him for her entire life time. Hisame then runs to Yukina to be comforted, only to hear that [[BerserkButton Shigure]] is her number one,thus leading to a dual-whammy ending up with shutting himself in with only his novel left to cling on to.]]
* TheScrappy: Some people see Akira or Mami as this, probably due to them being {{Moment Killer}}s to Shigure/Yukina.
** Hisame easily tops both of them. While Akira or Mami have at least some redeeming features outside of their involvement in Shigure and Yukina's relationship, Hisame has none, and each chapter he shows up he tops himself in his almighty jerkassery. Not even his FreudianExcuse of always being preferred over Shigure is enough to redeem him for most readers.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This runs in ''{{Nakayoshi}}'', a magazine aimed at elementary and middle school girls. It's one of their most sensual and mature titles to date. The success of this series is probably the cause of the magazine's HotterAndSexier ReTool.
