Blogging for Restless Book Obsession
I'm currently shouting a litany of curse words in Zekes direction. I've never been so frustrated and hated a book character in a long long time. I use hate in the best possible way though so i'm not entirely heartless.
Violet Is a girl trying to make it in college. She does a million things to stay afloat such as tutoring and babysitting. She Is shy and likes to hide in the library. Violet hasn't lead the best life yet she looks to the bright side of it all and makes the best of what she has. Which is a very admirable trait if you ask me. She is set to tutor the notorious jerk Zeke and really doesn't know how to handle his abrasive attitude.
Zeke is the man on campus. A wrestler and a man whore he is as cold and callous as they come. He protects his heart and his emotions at all cost. Zeke has a very real fear yet it still doesn't excuse his attitude. He has to keep a certain grade point average so he hires a tutor. At first he despises Violet then he comes to realize that maybe she isn't as bad as he thinks.
Violet and Zeke recognize things in each other that are similar. She's a bright light while he is a dark room. Together they bring out the good spots in each other.
I liked this book. While it wasn't as funny as the first Zeke still had moments. Congratulations to Sara Ney for writing a character I equal parts despised and loved. Violet was admirable because she didn't put up with crap yet she still tried to look for the good. I couldn't give this book a complete 5 but it was close. I noticed a few spelling errors scattered throughout and one inconsistent scene but all it all I love this book. I hope there are more to come in the future!
After listening to The Learning Hours and reading The Studying Hours in that order (Yeah, I did things a bit backwards this time around) I was all about knowing more about Zeke and what made act the way he did around and I was not disappointed! I ended up adoring not only Zeke, but Violet as well. Their journey was filled with all the feels, and then some, that kept me turning the pages and being quite upset when there were no more words to devour.
Zeke is the do$%hi^st around and he doesn’t care one bit about what any thinks or says about it. He is who he is and that’s that. I will admit to wanting to reach out and smack him numerous times throughout the book, but those moments were balanced out with ones that had me wanting to hug him, because there was so much more underneath his armor that showed how even the biggest d$uche could have a golden heart.
Upon first meeting Violet I let out a frustrated groan and prayed that there was more to the girl or it was gonna one of those long and painful reads, but she surprised me, a lot. She isn’t one who just throws herself into things, she is quite cautious, and yet she has a quiet strength about her that simmers beneath the surface and will come out in vibrant force when push comes to shove.
Zeke and Violet’s journey to their HEA was a fun one to experience. On the surface they appear to be absolute opposites, but as they continue to spend more time together and get under each others skins, you find that they have an unlikely common bond that draws them closer. The ups and downs were many, and some of the downs were pretty heavy, but I loved watching as they worked through their issues and became stronger separately as well as a couple in the end.
I really enjoyed The Failing Hours. It was just as well written as the other two in the series and like the other two, I was hooked from the start. But what pushed it up one extra level were Zeke and Violet. They were characters that had a lot depth and I loved watching them evolve as the story progressed. I liked catching up with Oz and James and how they put their two cents in when necessary. Now that I’m all caught up, I’m definitely looking forward to The Coaching Hours and finding out which d*ucheb%g is up on the chopping block!
