I thought How To Date a Douchebag: The Failing Hours, would be a light fun read like book one. But It was much much more.
The story is really good, but the characters? they are exceptional, and I have to say Violet may well be the most well written female character I have read in a good while.
Through the book, she grows bigger and bigger. She shows her strength, loyalty, kindness, and most importantly self-respect and worth. I couldn't get enough of her. I loved her, without question. There is a lesson in this book for girls everywhere I just know it.
As for Zeke. Well, he doesn't so much as grow, but shed. It is evident to the reader from pretty early on that Zeke is not a bad guy, more likely he is intentionally misunderstood.
Seriously this book is amazing, I think it kicked book one out the park - both books, of course, are stand alone. Book one was more fun, this one more emotional.
This one, The Failing Hours, is about Zeke and Violet. Oh man. Zeke is the definition of d word. He totally lives up to the name. I think the most out of all in the series to be honest.
I understand why he is the way he is, but man, he's just so rude and arrogant. But, I guess thats why the books are titled that way right.
I liked Violet and I loved how she eventually stands up and says exactly what she thinks. She has her past and her reasons too, and she's the total opposite of Zeke. Them getting to know each other was fun, when Zeke wasn't being annoying/dense.
I loved the scenes with Coach and Oz and James, and even Violets roommates. Like with Sara's other books in this series, they fit well into the storyline and everything moved along smoothly.
I would like to learn more about Elliott and for him to get his own story as well.
All in all another great read, and I look forward to more from this series.
Anyway, they reveal more of themselves to each other as time goes on and work through the issues that they both have. Taken for what is is, i.e. a modern, slightly edgy romance with a lot of snappy dialogue, humour and sex, it's probably a good example of its type. Three and a half stars.
The only thing I am annoyed at is Amazon did not have the book order written on any of the story’s so I read this first and not the first one. Very annoying and I didn’t think to look on Goodreads!!!
Loved this book.

Zeke is the total douche you don't want to like, but do. I couldn't help but love him, he's so angry about everything in life, even the kid he's signed on the Big programme, but Kyle doesn't let that get in his way. He' a total douche to his friends/roommate/teammates so will Violet be any different?
Not really, but Violet is the kill them with kindness type even when they're being nasty. I loved Violet, she was so petite, pretty, cute and smart, she might be meek but she's doesn't pull any punches. So when she's assigned to be Zeke's tutor she's wary and nervous by his size and doucheness seeing as Zere is a wrestler. The more time they spend together, not just tutoring, but on the big programme ,the more they develop a relationship as such. How long will it take Zeke to mess things up, because you know he will and will Violet be forgiving to his ways?
I loved the fact it wasn't just one person Zeke was horrible to, but everyone it would seem and Violet, she always wants to see the best in people's flaws and all, but there is something in Violet that doesn't make Zeke as bad, but even poor Violet has her limit. I loved, the easiness of this book and how you got lost in Violet and Zeke's story, it was fun, yet meaningful and with emotion.
I really need to read the first book in the series, because this book was amazing.
The Studying Hours was my first read of the year, and if you’ve read it, not so surprising 5 star read of the year also. Of course I could barely contain myself with the unfettered excitement that came with the news of Zeke’s book. In the interest full disclosure, I could not stand him. He seemed to have a chip bigger than his ego on his shoulder, and for the life of me I could not understand how anyone could tolerate him.
However post reading TFH, I won’t hear a word said against him. Yes, he it’s true; he was bigger douchebag than OZ. It’s also true; he said the wrong thing 90% of the time. He was moody and ungrateful and an all-around pain in the behind.
Beneath his douchey exterior is a kind, giving soul so hurt by his past, his default is to lash out. It’s a redemptive story that would not be made possible without our amazing heroine, Violet. She’s a quiet, gentle character whose world is thrown awry by Zeke’s entrance in it. In tutoring Zeke she teaches him more than he bargained for in more ways than one, which he makes clear he does not appreciate.
Although an unassuming character, Vi makes a huge impact on Zeke. She deserves a medal for putting up with him, but don’t be fooled, she puts him through his paces too. It’s a hilarious laugh out loud journey and I honest to god loved every minute of it. The emotional aspect was one that I did not expect, but it brought dimension to the story and further endeared me to both of them.
I’m desperately awaiting my next fix, and can only imagine what Sara Ney has up her sleeve to topple a douchebag like Zeke.
I absolutely flipping loved this! I was hooked from the first page, I laughed, sighed and cringed my way through. I really didn't like Zeke but half way through the book he started to grow on me and by the end he had worked his way into my heart. Do yourself a favour, one click this today
Violet is so sweet and quiet and perfect all wrapped in a little bundle. I absolutely loved her!!
Zeke is your typical douchebag. Like literally. He hates the world and everything and everyone around him.
But really I think all he wanted was to be loved.
Violet calmed the storm raging in him to some degree I think and became the light in to his dark!
I literally loved everything about this book.
