About THE FAILING HOURS
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.
Get your hands on THE FAILING HOURS:
After reading How To Date A Douchebag: The Studying Hours , I was not sure how Sara Ney would be able to redeem Zeke Daniels or make him at least a bit likable. This guy was a pure jerk. His roommates ( who are equally just as bad in their own way ) even thought he was an A-hole. He’s arrogant,confrontational,selfish, and closed off. He doesn’t discriminate, he treats everyone he comes in contact with the same. Unlike his roommate Oz, he doesn’t have a charming bone in his body. He doesn’t claim to be a ladies man, he’s the exact opposite. He knows his popularity with women is because he’s an athlete. He doesn’t try to charm their pants off nor does he try to make them feel good. Jock groupies are just easy lays in that moment in time.
Zeke is struggling with school. He needs a tutor to help write his Biology paper. His position on the wrestling team is also on the line and it’s not because of poor grades. His bad attitude is taking it’s toll on the team. The coach has laid down the law. He has to become a Big Brother mentor or lose his place on the team. It’s time to man up and get with the program. Zeke is not a happy camper. He hates the idea of kids.
Violet was assigned to be Zeke’s tutor but bailed when she saw him in the library. He intimidated her. Now she’s forced to own up to ditching him and do her job. As she gets to know him, she begins to see there are many layers to Zeke Daniels.
Violet and Zeke’s paths cross outside of the library. She babysits a young girl while her parents attend class. They both are spending time with children in need. The difference is how they approach their care. Zeke quickly realizes he needs Violet’s help in the childcare department.
As Zeke’s layers begin to peel away, the readers begin to see a different side to Zeke. He’s a closet nerd who loves building model planes and reading history books. He is also very observant of others and secretly helps the only way he knows how. He has a penchant for gambling as well. He takes on bets he cannot win. His prickly nature is his armor to protect himself from disappointment. He has abandonment issues that stem from his childhood.
Violet and Zeke have more in common than they both thought. As both of their layers begin to peel away, they begin to find a true friendship. They might even find love. Zeke’s a work in progress but is worth the effort. Violet is the only one brave enough to peel those layers away.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Zeke transform into the person both Violet and Coach saw hiding below the surface. He’s not perfect and still a bit too blunt, but he is a good guy after all. He’s a work in progress and is excelling.
I am thoroughly enjoying the How To Date A Douchebag series by Sara Ney. The witty dialogue, snarky attitudes, and creative pickup lines before each chapter are a bonus that makes this series stand out.

About The Studying Hours
CRUDE. ARROGANT. A**HOLE.
No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks.
SMART. CLASSY. CONSERVATIVE.
Make no mistake, Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent student—but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three.
She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected.
…EVERY DOUCHBAG HAS HIS WEAKNESS.
He wants to be friends.
He wants to spend time with her.
He wants to drive her crazy.
How To Date A Douchebag: The Studying Hours by Sara Ney was a hoot!
Sebastian “Oz” Osbourne is the star wrestler and manwhore on campus. He is a pig and makes no apologies. He’ll hookup with a girl in a closet, bathroom, hallway, or anywhere he can drop his pants. He’s moving onto his next conquest before he has his pants zipped from the last. He doesn’t do girlfriends or dates. He’s too busy with wrestling, maintaining his GPA for his scholarship, and working.
When Zeke Daniels bets Oz he can’t get the nerdy looking librarian type of girl sitting at the table across from them to kiss him, Oz can’t turn the bet down. As he approaches the girl in glasses, pearls, and a cardigan, he thinks it’s going to be easy pickings. He’s in for a great surprise. This girl could care less that he is the most desired guy on campus. She doesn’t even know who he is. Convincing her is impossible until he mentions money. This smart mouthed girl is willing to listen. She’s willing to help with the bet for a price. The price doesn’t include getting to know him.
Oz is baffled by Jameson Clark. She’s the first girl to turn him down. She’s the first girl that actually stands up to him and talks to him as a person rather than a superstar jock. He’s intrigued and wants to get to really know her. The chase is on.
Oz and Jameson become reluctant study partners. Their study dates turn into a friendship that has limits. Oz is chasing Jameson. Jameson is pushing Oz back every time he gains ground. Oz has a lot to learn about real women and real people. He has to learn the world does not revolve around him. While Jameson may enjoy teaching Oz a few lessons, her heart is starting to get caught up in the process.
The Studying Hour was a delightful and fun reading experience. I loved the snarky banter and witty comebacks. The chemistry between Oz and Jameson was sizzling hot. I highly recommend this book.
