spoilers for _Book Boyfriend_ by Kris Ripper 

This book deeply frustrates me. Everyone in it is a terrible person, but the viewpoint character is the only one who gets called out for it. The author seems more interested in telling us how toxic the idea of Grand Romantic Gestures is than ze is in showing us. I always find "this could be solved by either character saying one sentence" irritating, but it's worse when all of the narrative blame for not saying that sentence falls on one of them.
