Therefore his wrestling coach signs him up for the Big Brothers program and he has to take on a little boy who seems to be just as annoyed at the world. Zeke is less than enthused about his circumstances, that is until he runs into a girl that's tutoring him during his day with his little brother.
Violet DeLuca is the daughter of a mob boss.... just kidding that's a different book! Violet is everything that Zeke isn't. She's patient, kind, and friendly. She likes taking care of and helping others. Even though she's had a tragic past, she didn't let that turn her into a crumby person. She uses her pain to strive for better, and to do better for others.
When these two come together it is like the perfect yin and yang emotionally. Violet is exactly what Zeke needs to get himself in line. To get rid of some of his douche, and start appreciating the people he has in his life. Most importantly Violet makes him happy, plain and simple.
This is kind of a reluctant friends to lovers romance. These two started falling and didn't really realize it until they were there. I really loved that about them. We also get visits from Jameson and Oz from book one, which was fun. Even though Zeke was super awful in book one, I feel like he was LESS douchey than Oz in this book and maybe more of a moody man at times. He was more standoffish than a pervy jerk, like his friend was. I think I might like Zeke better than I liked Oz. HOW DOES SARA NEY MAKE REFORMED DOUCHE SO APPEALING?
All in all an extremely well written read. It's fun, it's romantic, it's hot and steamy at some points, and it's a perfect new adult romance with a misunderstood douchey hero and the heroine that cracks the whip.
Sara Ney has once again done what nobody believed possible - redeem the Douche. Her writing is flawless and her own humor and kindness are evident in each word on the page. Add this author to your automatic one-click list, you won't regret it!
Blogging for Restless Book Obsession
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!
