Famous last words.
Yep, I’m back to loving a Douchebag. How does this author do it? I mean, I cried over this guy. He really hurt me…I mean her. EVERY TIME he said something nasty I was devastated. His ability to do it so successfully, with little effort and fully conscious that he’s doing it, surprised me. I know there’s bad stuff in the world, but seeing it through Zeke’s eyes, was different. Zeke is aware of it all, feels some remorse, but not enough to make him stop. That is, until a Pixie and an 11-year-old boy change his world.
I absolutely loved this story. It always feels weird loving a book that makes me cry A LOT! It’s the journey. If you asked me at around the 20% mark, as I’m wiping tears from my eyes AGAIN, if I would love Zeke, I would have been vehemently shaking my head no. By the end, I loved him and all that he had become. It wasn’t just Violet coming into his life that changed him either. His coach, little brother (mentor program) and friends had a lot to do with it too. It really only came good for Zeke once he’d done a little self-reflection and removed the huge chip on his shoulder.
The Failing Hours was bloody brilliant. I was enthralled from the beginning to the end. I couldn’t believe that a character so nasty could ever come good, but I was pleasantly surprised. It didn’t happen overnight, but it did happen. I can’t wait for more in this series.
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.
Sweet, shy Violet would give anything to be noticed for more than her white blonde hair or stutter. She is almost finished with college and knows exactly where her lonely heart needs to go. Just one problem... While babysitting she runs into the one man she day dreams about and he isn't all peaches and cream like she believes. He gruff and absolutely self centered, something she's not used to. Can he see her inner beauty and fall for her sweetness? Can she see past his douchebaggery and understand the real front he's putting on? These two are the least likely to succeed together and the most rooted for. Love conquers all, but is it enough to bitch slap some sense into a self absorbed ass?
I loved this book for its humor and realism. I mean who can't be behind the damsel and the douche? I was rooting for Zeke to pull his head out of his arse straight away. Even tho is front was brutally gruff, I wanted Violet to be able to melt him into the goo he so fondly made fun of! Cute, endearing, funny and sarcastically brilliant, this book had it all. I was a fan of all the words Sara gave me and couldn't read fast enough. Great story and completely recommend! 4.5 stars-FMR Book Grind

V is mousey, timid and a doormat. She let Z treat her like crap and she took it. I had no respect for her.Read more
I liked this book but not as much as the first one. The lead character is a bit of a jerk in a different sense. He's angry, bitter and closed off.Read more
