First and foremost, literary fiction is not really a genre. Genre's are defined by content (subject matter). Literary fiction is, broadly speaking, a style of writing where style takes precedent over content.
If I look at #1 in Amazon's literary fiction new releases we get "Rocked Under" by Cora Hawkes.
Falling in love isn't always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of how hard it can be to let go...
Starting over in the USA, Emma starts college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do and live how she wants and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.
That is until Scott Mason walks on stage...
"Intense, bad boy Scott is the lead singer in a local and popular rock band. Ladies man and Ashley's longtime friend, Emma is instantly drawn to him, even though he is everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette; light it, use it, and lose it.
For her cousin's sake, she makes an effort to get along with Scott. She soon discovers that there is more to Scott which makes him even more dangerous in her eyes. Underneath the façade of friendship; jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurities, fester and battle it out as she fights her attraction and history from repeating itself.
One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her."
To me, this sounds like a romance . . . maybe it's a romantic thriller? I've no idea, I haven't read it.
