I've loved romance novels since...like forever. I read across most subgenres of romance. I also write fantasy/paranormal and new adult romance.
Oh, dear. Swoon. Hawt and naughty. Plenty of awkward.
In the edition I read, the characters are Mallory (Mal) and Artie. Basically, he is seemingly hostile toward her and then we find out he's been carrying a little crush for a while...among other issues. ;)
Artie could almost be a beta hero. He was adorable. Fab little novella. I only wish it was longer.
