Bright Before Sunrise, by Tiffany Schmidt
And then one night, fate brings them together on an adventure where the angry young man and the self-centered young woman will discover there's a lot more beneath the surface. And they will discover that they are simply perfect for each other.
It's a classic no-surprises romance, but I like those and (assuming you like a fun romantic book) you will too. The set-up is a bit too obvious and the starting points are a bit too convenient, but there's the growth in the relationship felt organic and perfectly natural. Both Jonah and Brighton are interesting young people and it's easy to see how they could hit it off once we get through the initial posturing and misunderstandings. And that's basically what one wants from a romantic story.
