    Not that I read many, but usually the yaoi novel are all quite... hard-core. I often think to them like little porn; maybe for the format, the print book is so small, rather cure, but inside they are scorching. Not Eternal Love: this romance is almost innocent, the only sex scenes are old style the type in which all happens behind closed doors.Tomoyuki is a young Japanese business man; while studying in England six years before he fell in love for a college mate, Aswil, an arabian guy with a mystery halo around him. Aswil had almost a royal behavior, so proud and aloof. After months of blissful love, Aswil was forced to return home, but he promised that he would return for Tomoyuki. Months after Tomoyuki found that Aswil was the king's son of a little Arabian country and that he needed to marry for political reason. Tomoyuki gave up to their love and returned to Japan.Now six years later, Aswil lures Tomoyuki into a trap and drags him in his country. He holds Tomoyuki in captivity, even dresses him up as a woman in the women quarters of his palace. When Tomoyuki asks for his behavior, the only excuse of Aswil is that he makes all for love, that he wants to respect the promise he made to Tomoyuki. And Tomoyuki even if he is still in love with Aswil, can't accept to loose his freedom and to be treat like an object by Aswil.As I said the story could be very more erotic than it is. It's not that Tomoyuki and Aswil didn't have sex, it's only that you don't read about it. Only the first time you have a bit of information on the almost non consensual sex Tomoyuki has to suffer, but then you only read about the regret of Tomoyuki, on how he feels guilty and how much he wants to run away from Aswil, but the reader can't quite understand it since he doesn't know what happens between them. This romance resembles a bit the "sheikhs" Harlequin, the sweet romances which take inspiration from the "historic" bodice rippers of E.M. Hull, The Sheikhs, and which inspired the famous movies with Rodolfo Valentino. In those romances, the sheikh is always a mourning man, who sweeps the heroine from her quiet life to drag her in the desert, better if on the back of an horses... you know that the sheikh, in the shadow of the tent, makes passionate love to the heroine, but you don't read it. Same here: you know that Aswil does something to Tomoyuki, but you haven't the privilege to be present... well I feel like the author robbed me of something!On the other hand, this is maybe the first yaoi novel I read where there are also other characters other than the two heroes, and maybe it's since the two heroes need to do something else since they aren't always in the bedroom...http://www.amazon.com/dp/1569707111/?...

    3.5 starsThis was not a graphic novel but I thought it was pretty good. Tomo met Aswil al-Murshid at the University where they had a passionate affair. A year later, Aswil is called back to his country and Tomo finds out that he is the heir to a country and must return. Aswil tells Tomo that he'll come back for him, but when Tomo finds out Aswil is engaged and next in line for the throne, he is devastated and tries to move on with his life. While on a business trip 6 years later, Tomo is kidnapped and taken to Aswil's country. Feeling that Aswil is a powerful and entitled man that feels he can take whatever he wants, Tomo is resentful of the kidnapping and being treated like he has no say. He further doesn't understand why Aswil wants him when he is getting married and knows that he could never be happy as one of Aswil's "concubines".I thought the story was interesting and I liked the resolution of the book. I still think I would have enjoyed it more as a graphic novel, but it was a good read nonetheless.

    The story was a bit boring and it suffers from that melodrama that occurs when two adults can't figure out how to use their words. The arts good though.

    I mean...but there’s better fan fiction on the internet. More proof I shouldn’t pick up other people’s bathroom reading. Lol.

    This was a surprisingly good read. I had really low expectations of this book when I first saw it and I almost didn't buy it. I thought it would follow the pattern of the usual "Sheik captures uke" yaoi manga/novels in which the uke is not only taken to a far away country against his will, but while there he is also taken against his will by the seme yet still professes his love for his rapist in the end.Eternal Love thankfully moved away from this formula enough for it to be enjoyable. Tomoyuki is kidnapped by Aswil but apart from one dubiously consensual scene, there is no rape. I also found Tomoyuki's inner turmoil, his resolve to return home even in the face of his conflicting feelings towards Aswil to be fairly realistic. I appreciated that he didn't spend his time simply pining for Japan but actually took concrete actions to try to get himself there.Of course, with this kind of book there is always the problem of explaining how a person who kidnaps his lover is anything but an abusive tyrant but even this I thought was handled quite well. Aswil's motivations are not completely credible but the author gives enough glimpses of his own weaknesses and the societal pressures he feels to allow the reader to suspend disbelief. Finally, there is a kind of poetic justice in the end in that to gain Tomoyuki's love, Aswil has to experience a loss of freedom similar to Tomoyuki's before they can find any semblance of happiness. This wasn't a perfect read by any means but overall I thought Eternal Love was a well-plotted story with surprising depth for its genre.

    So we start off with kidnapping and raping Tomoyuki and spend the rest of the book with him telling Aswil he wants to go home and this is somehow "romantic". Finally at the crux of the book Tomoyuki totally forgets how he's been abused and the outcome has them mining up Africa for oil.I give it another star only because Tomoyuki actually DOES like Aswil, only he just wants Aswil to listen to him and treat him like a human being. Also in the outcome they have nice consenual sex for once. That still doesn't forgive the fact the book is 90% "Stop doing that and let me go home."Also "Arabian" and "Exotic" get used a lot in this book.

    La segunda novela yaoi japonesa que leo, y honestamente me gustó más que la primera, aún si las escenas de sexo explícito no son tan frecuentes. Después de leerla y buscando para husmear más de la autora, me di cuenta que es la misma que la de la novela yaoi anterior, y que por ahora no ha escrito otras T_TMe hubiera gustado que las ilustraciones fueran más explícitas de las escenas eróticas, pero debo decir que me resultaron muy hermosas (view spoiler)[(en especial, la de la boda) (hide spoiler)]. Aunque lo de que secuestraran al prota no me gustó demasiado... pero bueno, si tuvo final feliz y realmente lo deseaba desde antes de ser capturado, estoy de acuerdo con ello.

    Tomoyuki and Aswil got together at college. When Aswil had to return home, he told Tomoyuki he would return for him. Who Aswil really was comes out and Tomoyuki gives up believing that Aswil will return and rebuilds his life. Aswil kidnaps Tomoyuki and with a little strife, they are finally together.

    Personally, I didn't expect much with this book but I finished it anyway.Judging from the cover alone, it's clearly one of those books on Arabian guys falling for Japanese guys. There are a lot of stories like this out there and this isn't any different.

    An amazingly sweet tale about an ordinary Japanese business man and an Arabian royal.
