Rejected way too many times by good-looking (and unattainable) guys, shy Riiko Izawa goes online and signs up for a free trial of a mysterious Nightly Lover 'figure'.
The very next day, a cute naked guy is delivered to her door, and he wants to be her boyfriend!
Has Riiko died and gone to heaven? The cute guy turns out to be sweet, smart, a great cook, and lots more. And he looks like a million bucks, which is what he's going to cost Riiko if she doesn't return him in time...While out on a date with Night, Riiko meets a boy who looks like her first crush from elementary school - Toshiki Murakami.
Even though she's with Night, Toshiki seizes the opportunity to steal a kiss from Riiko...

Review by the1butterfly
This one was pretty shocking- our heroine cheats on, well, all our men with a new model robot who she thinks is her first crush. It turns out he's not, she's totally confused, and, as usual, Soshi and Night are fighting over her. Riiko realizes that she really does have strong feelings for Night, and Soshi finally confesses his feelings for her. Now the two of them are really determined to battle it out. The only downside to this manga series is that the two boys are really hard to choose between. I'd go with Soshi because he's cuter (and real), but Night's so dedicated, you can't give up on him. I was relieved to see Toshiki out of the picture in the end.

When you want a boyfriend none are around, that is just how Riiko feels. On the path of desperation she signs up for a free trial for a robotic boyfriend. What can go wrong right? Nope, wrong! Riiko receives the extravagant Night, a hot and sexy man that only wants to please her.Seriously this is one of the best manga I have ever read! It is filled with romance and comedy and enjoyable characters. I fell in love with every aspect of this series right from the beginning. There is an interesting love triangle that also develops, I had a hard time choosing which guy I would end up picking, you will have to see for yourself.Riiko is just a doll! No, not literally, but cute nonetheless. She is always looking on the bright side of things and is protective of the ones she loves. Night is the epitome of every girls dream guy. He is so adorable when he is learning all of the different emotions and things Riiko is trying to teach him. Night is really cute when he starts becoming overprotective of Riiko.I really wish they would make it into an anime!!!
