Manga Spotlight [text ver] [1] Butterflies, Flowers

I was asked on NewType Zone what I thought about this manga and my answer was simply "this manga is a guilty pleasure" because in all honesty it truly is. I picked up the first volume of this series because I was looking for a smut series (I had just finished reading Hot Gimmick), but I was expecting more of a story... but all I got was "he used to be my servant, and now I think I like him >//<". Oh well, what can I expect from a smut series? Hot Gimmick was meant to be a smart smut, but this one from the first 3 volumes I can tell is meant to be smut for smuts sake. I don't see the story getting any better in the next 5 volumes but like I said, it's a guilty pleasure so for sure I'll more than likely finish it.

Choko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady," she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?
