The Thai novel that inspired the hit live-action Boys' Love drama KinnPorsche: The Series! In this action-packed romance, a hot-tempered college student is sucked into the criminal underworld after a chance encounter with the heir to a crime family.

Ever since the tragic death of his parents, Porsche's life has been a balancing act between attending college and bartending to support his younger brother and pay off his deadbeat uncle's gambling debt. When he witnesses a gang of thugs attacking a handsome young man in the alley behind his bar, he's reluctant to intervene-until he's offered fifty thousand baht to help the stranger escape.

The stranger is known as Kinn, the second son of a notorious crime family. Impressed with Porsche's fighting skills, Kinn hatches a devious plan: hire Porsche to be his own personal bodyguard and he'll pay off his debt. Porsche doesn't want any trouble, especially not the kind of trouble Kinn deals in. But Kinn always gets what he wants.

The KinnPorsche novel series, originally written in the Thai language, inspired the wildly popular and internationally acclaimed live-action drama, KinnPorsche: The Series, which Teen Vogue called "a thrilling, lush and gargantuan tale of love and sin" (2022). Seven Seas will be releasing the first-ever English edition of the original novels under the company's expanding Danmei label, featuring new covers and internal illustrations from artist Tamtam.
