Title: Carta Visa
Genre: BL, Romance, Comedy
This is a story about me, the chaotic life of a fashion magazine photographer who one day had the bright idea to set out for a certain ‘iron curtain’ country as a means of gaining new and peculiar life experiences. However, God graced me with an enemy, one equally handsome and menacing, Alexey, a mafia in disguise as a civil servant. Not to mention, he’s not by himself. Accompanied by three particularly brutal bodyguards, this is most definitely going to be a life lesson costing me dearly.
Despite there being an (over) abundance of BL novels in Thailand, Carta Visa has always stood out to me as being the most enjoyable novel in a long time coming. Guaranteed to give you a Jolly Good Time™, this story is full of #bants which tastefully does not put off from the romantic heartfelt moments. The dynamics between Petch and Alexey is a delight to read. They clash like water and fire but in the most hilarious of ways. Petch is such a loveable character, and Alexey–I’ve got to give it to him–he’s way too hot *fans self*. Spanning five thick volumes, our main characters are in for an adventure, suspense but also a bit of mystery.
