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!

"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.”
