I like jerkface heroes. There I said it. I like my leading men to be a little mean, because it adds some bite to a story, though I'm not opposed to cute heroes too. It's just I find romance boring if the chase is too short. When the couple get together and melt into generic blandness. That's why my favourite trope is "when enemies fall in love." Hate promises so much conflict, and the hero has to work harder to be seen in a romantic light.

ADDED NOTE -
I like jealous heroes. Not possessive ones.
Difference? It's subtle (or glaring, imo) but it's there.
A jealous hero would think, "Hmm, she is wearing barely-there clothing. Guys are going to be all over her. I'm going to sit here and stew over it, and maybe make a wisecrack or two. The crucial thing is, I'm not going to BAN her to do anything or STOP her."
A possessive one would think and enforce, "You CAN'T go out in those clothes, go upstairs and change. If another guy looks or talks at you, I'm going to BREAK his face in. I will BAN you from doing certain things."
I'm not big on possessive heroes basically. If he can't trust you to go out, and do things in your judgement, then what kind of hero is he?
