Miranda, that’s a great distinction–there’s a difference between an MC being, say, grouchy, and an MC deliberately hurting the other MC. This used to be very common in 80s romances and is less common now but still far too prevalent. If I don’t care for a story, I’ll typically just close the book but cruelty makes me actually fling the book against the wall. I’ll give most authors a second chance, but not that!
