No one likes a bully, or do they? The angst. The feeling of watching that hate to love. It’s usually epic. Watching the main character get harassed, and then dish it right back. Are the readers viewing the love between the two as tragic? Keep in mind a Bully Romance is not your typical romance with a cookie cutter HEA. They’re raw, gritty, emotional, painful, and can be hard to read at times.
People must like it, or there wouldn’t be a bully romance genre, and a overabundance of books to choose from. Myself, I like it to an extent depending on what the author does with it. Some of the following may have triggers. Not all Bully Romances are pleasant to read. Some hit the reader harder than others. Use due diligence when choosing a book with possible triggers. As always, happy reading! – Quare Eligere
