    Not a fan of 50SOG and not a fan of the bad boy trope, and do love a good romance that subverts this trope or avoids it all together.

    Thank you for this video! I am not a fan of reading the bad boy trope in romance. I think it is part of the reason I stayed in some really toxic relationships as a young gay man. The bad boy trope is bad in m/m romance too.
    Thank you for calling out the bully trope. And yes I agree most have not been in these types fo relationships because they are anything but romantic.
    Your book is on my TBR. Can't wait to get to it. I think I need to check out the Helping Hand. Sounds steamy and fun. I love a UK setting. Steamy gay contemporary romance…***raises hand.
    Thank you for your content! I love your voice in this space.
    Stay healthy and well.
