Kiss Me, Creep
This is the teen version of the icky guy that is just misunderstood. See most of our romance posts. It’s a trope all on its own. Our gal Joy doesn’t like Richie. He constantly teases her. By the end of the book, Joy thinks she might have missed the boat on Richie. Maybe he actually likes her and he isn’t a creep. I think the jury is still out.
Ah, young love.
