Violet, however, I really liked from the very start. She was sweet and good and a really nice person. You know, the exact opposite of Zeke. Yet, the longer I read the more I found myself shipping them. I mean, I still I thought she was far too good for Zeke, but I hoped she could help him find a nicer, more caring guy underneath. The sexual tension between them didn't hurt matters either. They had tons of chemistry. So as much as I found myself literally yelling at Zeke for being a jerk, I was silently cheering the idea of him and Violet on.
I enjoyed The Failing Hours so much — so much more than I thought I would. Because of Zeke's antics in The Studying Hours, I wasn't exactly looking forward to reading his book. I knew he wound up with Violet because I read the series out of order, but I didn't know if I wanted details. He was an off-putting character. Admittedly, I didn't have high expectations for him, but he far surpassed them before it was all said and done. I actually really loved him and Violet together, once he realized how great she was anyhow. This book hit me in the feels a couple times, but it was also funny and sexy (and yes, even infuriating). Boy did I devour this one.
This the first of the Douchebag books that I've read exclusively on audiobook. I think I did a really good job of finding the time to listen to this one in huge chunks, so I wasn't tempted to chuck it aside and finish the ebook instead. I've said this in every review for this series, but I'll say it again here — Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown are excellent narrators. They do a fantastic job giving life to the characters in this series and Zeke and Violet were no exception. It's truly a treat to listen to their performances.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm more than a little sad my Douchebag binge is over. This series was such a surprise to me. I'll admit I judged it by its name first and decided I didn't have any (reading) time to devote to douchebags. Boy, was I wrong. I mean, the guys in this series (minus Rhett) are NOT nice guys, but their growth makes it all worth while. I hope there are more books to come in this series — I don't think I'm ready to give it up just yet.
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
