When high school girl Hatsumi has to go buy a pregnancy test because her popular sister Akane is 'late,' who does she run into but her creepy bully neighbour Ryoki, and now he's blackmailing her to become his slave! How will mild-mannered Hatsumi get out of this mess? Will Hatsumi's childhood crush (and male model) Azusa be able to save her from Ryoki's clutches? In volume 3 of Hot Gimmick, things get really hairy for our hapless heroine Hatsumi as her too-good-to-be-true childhood-buddy-now-male-model boyfriend Azusa shows his true colours, and they're a lot worse than she thought! Will the unsuspecting Hatsumi wise up in time to escape Azusa's lizardly revenge plot? Or will she be saved by, of all people, her creepy 'master' Ryoki? With (boy)friends like these, who needs enemies?
