Title: How To Date A Douchebag: The Failing Hours
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.
Move over douchebags, we have a new asshole on the block, and he is worse than a douche bag!
We met Zeke in Studying Hours, and I am pretty sure none of us were impressed by his supreme douchyness.
He's not like Oz, you know?He's rude,cruel,grumpy and mean.But he might be just misunderstood you know?
Yeah yeah, I can see you rolling your eyes over there, thinking what's no new or great about this storyline?
It's the way Sara writes her characters and makes us connect with them.
Zeke and Violet were perfect for each other in ways I can't describe!It's not the same grumpy-rude-guy-meets-sweet-new-girl-and-does-a-complete-180.
The relationship is completely believable and develops so slowly, that I loved it!
Though Zeke and Violet are quite opposite in personalities, they have much more in common then they could have imagined.The way they came together was beautiful.
Even though Violet was sweet, she took no shit from him.
Zeke didn't become a complete love-sick puppy either.Violet softens him, but he retains his douchebaggery!
This book had the right mix of humor,sexiness,romance and a little bittersweet to make it perfect!I hope the next book in the series comes out soon!

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.
