Author: Sara Ney
Genre: New Adult, Sports Romance, College Romance
Zeke Daniels isn't just a douchebag; he's an asshole.
A total and complete jerk, Zeke keeps people at a distance. He has no interest in relationships—most assholes don’t.
Dating? Being part of a couple? Nope. Not for him.
He's never given any thought to what he wants in a girlfriend, because he's never had any intention of having one.
Shit, he barely has a relationship with his family, and they're related; his own friends don’t even like him.
So why does he keep thinking about Violet DeLuca?
Sweet, quiet Violet—his opposite in every sense of the word.
The light to his dark, even her damn name sounds like rays of sunshine and happiness and shit.
And that pisses him off, too.
4.5 StarsI thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, but in my honest opinion this story surpasses the first book. Although this is the second title in the How to Date a Douchebag series, it could be read as a standalone, although the hero and heroine of The Studying Hours, do appear within this story line.Ezekiel Daniels aka. Zeke is one complicated hero. He's angry, antisocial, intimidating and acts like the world owes him something. Zeke is one enigmatic character with layers upon layers that draw you further into this story. As much as you want to hate Zeke, Ms. Ney has created a character you are inexplicably drawn to even though he's anything but endearing. He is so much more than he appears underneath his cold, callous and abrasive exterior is a very deep thinker, who is a product of his upbringing.Violet our heroine, on the other hand is timid, shy, sweet, sassy, sensitive and quiet. She suffers from a stutter and lacks self confidence. She's incredibly endearing and has the patience of a saint, to put up with Zeke's infuriating personality.The Failing hours is a slow burn romance and this pair have much more in common than it appears. Although they are complete opposites, they share a special connection and Vi definitely brings out the best in Zeke's character. I loved the banter between this pair, so many scenes had me laughing out loud. The Failing Hours, is told from a dual point of view, allowing us to see the inner thoughts of both the hero and heroine.I thoroughly enjoyed The Failing Hours, another great addition to the How to Date a Douchebag series. I thoroughly recommend this book to lovers of New Adult romance, or college romance stories. I was completely captivated by this engaging and entertaining read and cannot wait for more from Ms. Ney.
Purveyor of all things witty & romantic, I love: iced latte's, traveling, and bright, bold colors. On any given day, you can find me in my office, lovingly gazing at my bookshelf or shuffling my Bic felt-tip pen collection. I love hand writing letters, and sarcasm.
I live in the midwest, but "Will Write for Travel," and believe everyone should follow their dreams, no matter how big or small. My favorite authors include Cindy Miles, S Walden, Suzanne Enoch, Tessa Dare (to name a few). I am a glutton for Historical, RomCom, Sports and MC romance.
One husband. Two daughters. Plenty of chaos.
