Here's a description from the Introduction:

This collection is organized in six parts. Part One, "Problematic Masculinities," includes two essays that take one of the most common critiques of the genre head-on and consider the continuing presence and substantial popularity of masculine characters and tropes we have come to recognize as toxic. Jonathan A. Allan, in "Healing Toxic Masculinity in Sweatpants Season by Danielle Allen," showcases the ways in which romance authors are confronting and "healing" the trope and focuses particularly on one novel's attempt to remediate its male lead's toxic behaviors.
