Sakurai Misaki is a patissier who dreams of having her own business in the future and has prioritised work to the extent that she has forgotten how to kiss. One day, she is suddenly dismissed and has difficulty finding a new job. A homemade wedding cake she brings to present at a prestigious hotel’s mid-career recruitment examination is not well-received by the judges. As a result, she is not hired. Misaki complains about it at a restaurant. Her junior Ishikawa Wakaba points out that it was because the kissing mouths on the faces of the figures decorating the cake protruded too much. Wakaba leaves first for a date while Misaki hides in a toilet cubicle and feels a surge of bitter disappointment. When she has composed herself and tries to go out, the door will not open. After a short while, a restaurant staff comes in search of her. The person who pries open the door is Shibasaki Chiaki, Misaki’s first love in high school. Misaki tells him how she is doing, but lies that she is a patissier for a first-class hotel and taking a break now because the kitchen is being refitted. Chiaki invites her to live-in and work at his seaside restaurant in Shonan in the interim. When Misaki arrives at Shonan and attempts to look for someone to take a photo of her on the sandy beach, a surfer appears. Shoving her smart phone at him, she tries to make him capture the moment of her jump, but she ends up falling. She is photographed covered by the waves and dripping wet. But the guy just brusquely leaves. Misaki arrives at the Shibasaki home. Then she is hugged from behind by a guy. Misaki hopes that it is Chiaki, but it is someone else who introduces himself as Toma. He says he is Chiaki’s younger brother and that they live together. Then the guy who was at the beach earlier also shows up. He says he is the second brother, Kanata, and is the restaurant’s chef. Misaki ends up spending the summer living with the three handsome siblings!?
