What good romance books/novels are there for teenage guys?

Seth asked:

I love romance books, but most romances from a male’s perspective seem superficial and generally not romantic enough, and romances about guys feel awkward. I love When it Happens (although I didn’t really like Take Me There) and I love John Green books (although not quite for the romance aspects of them). I also loved Beautiful Creatures. Thank you!

What is the general structure of romance novels?

Blank Page asked:

I am looking to write my first mostly romance story during NaNoWriMo, so I am planning it now. It will be a fantasy romance.

However, I don’t read much romance. I have only read two romance novels in my entire life, so I’m not as sure about the structure. From what I can tell, the man and woman usually get stuck together for some reason (and it will be a heterosexual novel) but they don’t actually like each other very much. During the time they’re stuck together, they fall in love but are prevented from being together for some reason, usually relating to the reason they are together in the first place. Then they overcome whatever is keeping them apart (so to speak) and they can be together.

Is that the gist of it? Can anyone elaborate further to give me a more detailed explanation?
NaNaWriMo, in case you don’t know, stands for National Novel Writing Month. It is a competition that takes place during the month of November, and writers try to create a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.

How are women portrayed in Arthurian romance and The Canterbury Tales respectively?

trinity l asked:

I need to write an essay. The actual essay prompt is:
Discuss the changes (or lack thereof) in the portrayal of women in Medieval literature from Arthurian Romance through the Canterbury Tales.

I’m confused about the prompt. Was there really much change between Arthurian romance and Canterbury tales? Weren’t they in the same time period? Any suggestions? Thanks!
