Overview

Protagonist Mikuri Moriyama is an unattached young woman with a graduate degree. Her prospects should be rosy. But when no offers of employment come her way, she’s forced into taking on temp work and confronting “the painful realization that nobody needs her.” That’s when Mikuri with the help of a father(who can’t stand to see her jobless)lands a job as a professional homemaker for a company man, a strait-laced, unexciting bachelor named Hiramasa Tsuzaki. Mikuri’s perfectionist work ethic wins over Tsuzaki’s complete trust, but unfortunate circumstances result in the loss of this job, too. Hemmed in and feeling anxious about the future, Mikuri makes Tsuzaki a strange offer. “Would you consider employing me through marriage?” Tsuzaki agrees, and a nuptial agreement is signed, making the two legally betrothed in a somewhat falsified life as husband/employer and wife/employee.

Can the couple function in a strictly professional relationship like this without the truth becoming known? Is there any chance of a chemical reaction between a pure company man and a dreamer woman thrown together for mere convenience?
