"Not everyone has a broken wing that needs mending, Violet. Maybe this guy isn't worthy of your special brand of caring."
Zeke Daniels isn't just a d-bag; he's an a****le.
^^^From the blurb itself, this man was a JERK. But oh, how when you peel back the layers you see what he truly was.
While I read and enjoyed the first book in this series, The Studying Hours, I went into this book with literally no expectations. And it completely blew me away. I mean, immediately after reading I went online and ordered a paperback, that's how much I loved it!
The Failing Hours is about Zeke and Violet. Zeke is the grump jerk on the wrestling team who needs to be tutored. His bad attitude has gotten him into hot water with his coach, and coach begins making Zeke jump through hoops to remain on the team. Violet is the timid tutor who spends her time in the library. When she first meets Zeke she's so unbelievably intimidated by him and the dark cloud surrounding him, she doesn't want to be his tutor. But the more time they spend together, they both see there is more behind what they look like on the outside.
"He swears too much.
He isn't nice.
He isn't sweet.
He isn't kind.
Or generous with words. Or affection.
But he's reliable. Dependable. And he was there for me."
This was a book I picked up as a side piece. Yup that's really as bad as it sounds. It's the book i chose to read in situations where it was inappropriate to read paperbacks or kindles in front of others. I was sneak reading it on my phone/ipad. The first 20% was actually pretty slow for me, and Zeke was SUCH AN JERKI didn't know if I would like it. I mean, he was a special brand of mean. BUT once I got about halfway this lovely book was no longer a side piece but my top choice and I devoured the last half of it.
Jerk heroes are always hard for me to like, because they never seem to be regretful or tend to walk all over the heroine. But that's not the case here. Zeke was damaged from a childhood of neglect, and my heart friggin BLED for him. I legit just wanted to give him a giant hug the entire book. And Violet, though she may be quiet and stutter, she is no one's doormat. I admired her resilience and strength with all she faced in her life, and the fact that she was firm in the fact that whomever she ended up with respected her.
An emotional read, I found myself sighing, laughing, and tearing up when reading this book. Sarah Ney placed herself among my auto-buy authors with this book. Woman stepped up her game with this book and I find myself in awe of her talent. I am so excited for the next book!!!
“But you’re not jaded—not like me. I’m a beautiful mess. You’re just beautiful.”
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!
