Having described a bad romantic scene in a New Adult novel, I feel an obligation to mention two very lovely ones in YA novels. If you are expecting graphic details, good luck with that one. Any way, scene #1 is 75% interior monologue from the male character about how he feels about the girl and scene #2 is done primarily with art (she’s an artist) and music (he’s a musician) metaphors. Both are well into the R rated range and yet, not a vulgar moment in either. YES! It can be done.
