    1. As far as I can tell – this is the first book I’ve read by this author. It was very interesting and I definitely felt like I experienced a different culture.On one hand I liked this – it was unique- moved along quickly and kept me guessing.On the other hand, I felt like it tried to do way too much without accomplishing any one specific thing.We have the issue of xenophobia and Hugh’s feelings of isolation due to his heritage, we have the yakuza and it’s drama, we have not one but two v [...]


    2. Hugh Harris moves to Japan, to find his roots, and help his mother moved back. He is hafu(half Japanese, half Caucasian). He finds Kobe a lonely place, till he gets hired to work at a nightclub. This was a short read, kind of strange. I liked it, but I think there was more story and it suffered from the lack of character development, and the plot gets a little wonky to me. If the blurb interests you, then I'd tell you to read it.


    3. Japan is not a country I am very familiar with, though I love the food I have tried, and my only encounter with a few Japanese customs has been through friends who are Japanese or people who have lived in Japan. And, of course, through reading and watching movies – neither of which is necessarily as accurate as traveling or living there. All that being said, I was pretty curious to read ‘Dusk Parlor’ since most of the stories in the ‘World of Love’ series so far have been as entertaini [...]


    4. 3 1/2 out of 5I think this writer has a lot of talent and potential. This was an enjoyable read with very good character development. The one thing that would have made this story better was a bit more complexity to the plot, more of the Yakuza element. As any fan of Yakuza fiction will tell you, we like to be immersed in the culture, the gritty underbelly of what their world is really like. And the prospect of men who are trying to leave that life behind is beyond fascinating.


    5. I *might* be slightly obsessed with Yakuza books and this one did not disappoint me at all! Love the relationship between Kaito and Hugh and all the steamy parts. Very hot~ full video review ~> youtu/vrOqAMHdixY


    6. I'm kind of stuck between 3 and 4 stars on this one. I liked how Hugh, Keito, and Ren played off of each other. I also found their club immensely interesting. Their was so much potential in this story from Hugh's Japanese family to Keito and Ren's yakuza ties to just watching a relationship play out between the three of them. But this book just barely grazes the surface of anything. It offers a tantalizing base and writing to what could be a great book, but ultimately ended up being a tease.


    7. The beginning was interesting, then it went to hell in a handbasket. Suddenly, there were (view spoiler)[yakuza, ex-hitman, ex-yakuza accountant, extortion, blackmailing, and threesome (hide spoiler)]. And it's all in 86 pages novella! If only the author had just focused on how Hugh found his footing, his home in Japan, and on Hugh's relationship with Ren and Kaito, I think the story would've been more realistic and enjoyable.



    8. A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Review An Alisa Review:Rating: 3 stars out of 5This was a nice story and the author did a pretty good job of explaining the thought process of those in Japan but I was still with Hugh in being frustrated in how those around him were thinking. Hugh and his mother have just moved to Japan after his father’s death and he is having a hard time finding work and people who won’t judge him based on his heritage. When Ren and Kaito give him the opportunity to wor [...]
