5 stars!!! Zeke Daniels isn’t just a douchebag; he’s an asshole. OMG I get it!!! I totally get all the Douchebag hype now! The first book in this series was great, but The Failing Hours was truly INCREDIBLE! Zeke and Violet’s story was the BEST!Zeke is the guy in the group that, on the outside, is a big jerk to his friends and would never be in a relationship. But he is SO MUCH MORE than that on the inside! His heart is bigger than he shows, he just needs the right person to bring that sid [...]
5 STARS Sara Ney not only proves that the first book of this series’ popularity wasn’t a fluke but that she sure can write a redeemable, relatable, douchebag with this hero, Zeke Daniels. I definitely liked this story more than the first book which I did give 4.5 stars. I adored the hero and heroine’s connection, friendship, banter, and fall into love. Zeke is seriously broody, moody, and even his friends/roommates can’t even stand the angry hottie. Zeke isn’t arrogant like Oz which I [...]
3.5 STARSI liked it though not as much as the first book. Full review to come.

UNFORGETTABLE GOODNESS!!!!! That what this is. UNFORGETTABLE. GOODNESS. IN EVERY WAY. God, it was just EVERYTHING. Everything I could want from a book and so much more. Sara Ney's Douchebags are my new addiction! I just can't get enough. I am OBSESSED with these boys. They are ALL THE THINGS that are right in NA romance. This series (of standalone novels) has captured my attention and held it. And these characters are so special and important to me! There's something magical about them! Somethin [...]
This series is some of the best NEW new adult I've ever readd I mean.I know good NA when I see it.
➦Well, this just wasn't fair. Jock/tutor trope is my absolute favorite and I haven't read a good one in so long that this completely hit the spot. Boy, did it hit the spot. And although I'm rating all the books in this series 5 stars, (let's be honest, I PLOWED through three in a matter of two days) this installment was the one I loved the most. ➦It was amazing to read about this jackass brooding guy, who acts like a jerk all the time, grow up and let in a girl. A girl who he would have neve [...]
5 stars! "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 douchebag; he's an a**hole. ^^^From the blurb itself, this man was a D. I. C. K. 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 readi [...]
4 Shut Up, Violet! StarsMy parents must have known from the beginning that I was going to be a sinner—that’s why it sounds like they named me after two books of the Bible. Lord knows I’m no saint.”After meeting Zeke in Oz and Jameson’s book, I wasn’t quite sure how Sara Ney was going to turn him into a swoony heartthrob of a leading man. I mean let’s get real, from the second Zeke’s character entered the scene he had “major asshole” written all over him. Every single thing he [...]
★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★I am so pleased that I discovered this author because this series is shaping up to be one of my favourite sports romances, containing a kryptonite of mine - douchey but loveable heroes."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 tonight."Zeke is a big fat grump, he is rude to everyone and moody as hell, but you know how it goes - he is misun [...]
My name is Eliza, and I’m hopelessly addicted to douchebaggery. Don’t try to reform me; I’m perfectly happy as I am. With every hit of this series Sara Ney cements herself as my dealer, and I, an addict to her asshole-hero peddling wares. The Studying Hours was my first read of the year, and if you’ve read it, not so surprising 5 star read of the year also. Of course I could barely contain myself with the unfettered excitement that came with the news of Zeke’s book. In the interest ful [...]
It's LIVE!! Blog TourYou know those books you can imagine reading again and again and it will never and I mean never get stale??? I can see THE FAILING HOURS being one of those books. I can picture myself getting a paperback copy to put on my shelf to sit amongst my other pretties. I can even imagine myself ordering perhaps another paperback copy just as a reading copy that I could dogear the pages of. I know some of you are sitting there thinking "Natalie is being ridiculous", but I assure you [...]
Live <33 amazon/How-Date-Douch5 Zeke stars <33"I might be a douchebag, but I'm not a quitter."I don't know where to start, I freaking loved this book! Zeke is by far my favorite douchebag! I finished this book days ago and I'm still thinking about the story and the characters!Zeke was an asshole and I wanted to know why, he intrigued me. Violet was exactly what he needed, she was the light in his darkness. She was sweet, kind, friendly and lovable. Zeke is slowly drawn to her and what the [...]
4.5 "Reformed" Stars Can a irredeemable character ever truly be redeemed? If you're Sara Ney writing The Failing Hours, then yes, absolutely. Zeke was the epitome of horrible in the first book of the series. He was perfectly terrible and it was hard to imagine anyone breaking down that mile high wall around him. But Violet, with her unassuming strength, was the perfect match for the perfect villain.The Failing Hours is a standalone in the How to Date a Douchebag series. I would suggest reading T [...]
Title: The Failing HoursSeries: How to Date a Douchebag #2Author: Sara NeyRelease date:January 31, 2017Cliffhanger: NoHEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]The fact that I'm even reading this series defies logic. I'm not a fan of asshole douchebag types whatsoever, but Sara Ney knows how to write heroes that you sit up and pay attention to. For me to like a douchebag he either has to:a)Have charm oozing out of his pores and a irresistible sense of humor.orb)Just be 100% redeemed in the end. With [...]
What makes a person become a Douchebag?Honestly, I really couldn’t tell you before I started this series whether a Douchebag is born or created. A little part of me thought that some people are just born that way. The grain of nastiness is planted, and with a little nurturing and guidance, that grain can grow. Maybe, it’s all nurture? If you live with a douchebag (what’s the female equivalent, or is it gender neutral?), do their traits pass on because you learn from what you see? Then ther [...]

I'm only going to say this once and I ain't sugar coating itREAD THIS FUCKING BOOK.I've just finished and I'm reading it again.I haven't done that in 4 yearsZeke Daniels hit my motherfucking book boyfriend list for life.I want to sit on his face.
3.75 starsSecond book in the How to Date a Douchebag series- Douchebag Zeke Daniels meets sweet,timid, mousy tutor Violet and falls for her in his own douche-way however refuses to come to terms with it and sometimes treats her not very nicely. Violet is sweet and understanding with a sad past and i appreciated her having a backbone most times. She was a ball of sunshine to Zeke's broody life. Zeke, was sweet in his own way (mostly in his head) but was as condescending and self deprecating as on [...]
I absolutely loved this book!!!Wow, this was amazing. I loved everything about it, the hero, the heroine, the storyline, the pacing. Everything!!! Definitely one of my favorite reads this year. Can't wait to dive in to Book #3!!!
3.5 StarsOverall Opinion:I liked this more than the first book, The Studying Hours, but it still isn't going to go on my favorites shelf. This H was a mess, and a great one for those of us that like our jerks! He definitely was a jerk! He was also damaged, and while I didn't like his behavior a lot of the time I understood it. The h, on the other hand, was super sweet! They were an odd couple, but I did like them together. They had some fun interactions with kids that they babysat which I always [...]
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️This was absolutely fantastic, it really was! Zeke is an arsehole extraordinaire, knows it and totally owns it. Sara Ney took said arsehole and oh so slowly showed me what was under all that arseholeishness and not only made it totally believable, but made me fall for Zeke hook, line and sinker. Who woulda thought Zeke would make me swoon. He did. 💝Then, she gave Zeke Violet, the perfect girl for him. Sweet, sensitive, calm, unassuming, forgiving and understandin [...]
Oh my gosh, I loved this story so much!!If you like a great story about an ass-hole. A brutally honest, rude and on occasion crude douchebag - you MUST read this book.I loved the heck out of The Failing Hours. Zeke Daniels, wrestling star and all around douchebag, had the tendency to speak his mind in any and every situation. Was it with his teammates, hookups, his coach, in front of kids - ANYONE felt the sting of his displeasure and honest opinion. He had NO filter at all. And he could have ca [...]
Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeThe Failing Hours took me by surprise in the BEST way possible. I’ll admit, going into this, I didn’t have high hopes for Zeke. He was the BIGGEST douchebag in the first book and such a misogynist – I was so sure he couldn’t be redeemed in his book. But I am so glad I turned out to be wrong about him. Yes, he’s a dick and nothing can excuse that, but there’s more to Zeke than just his meanness. You get to see a new side of Zeke, one that Violet [...]
4-3.5 Stars!This started off really good! I was really loving Violet and Zeke. But around 70% it started to go down hill for me. I still really liked this one but not near as much as the first book. Can't wait to see who's next.
How to Date a Douchebag is such a fun series to read, I just love it!We got a glimpse of Zeke douchebag side in book one but we definitely got more of his " wonderful" personality in book 2!! He really was a jerk, the things he would say or do were just WOW! But I loved it and I especially loved how he was with Violet.Violet was a great heroine, she was the total opposite of Zeke, she was shy, kind, friendly and loved helping others. You would think because of her shyness and her stutter she wou [...]
God Zeke is frustrating but very sexyI really enjoyed this book. I was dying to know more about Zeke and his very moody way. I had a feeling on what it was from the first book but wasn't sure. I actually didn't think he could get much worst but God he did. I actually didn't really like him in the first maybe 30 - 40% of the book. But after read more I started to understand him a lil better. It still didn't make me luv him cause the way he was with Violet actually really annoyed me. Violet is jus [...]
So, so, so good! Zeke and Violet are incredible characters. Zeke was a douchebag in the beginning, but he slowly changes. He is sporty, passionate, closed off, intimidating and arrogant, but he also has a sweet side. Violet is the opposite of Zeke. She’s sweet, caring, intelligent, loving and a little insecure. The first meeting between Zeke and Violet wasn’t a nice one, so I was curious how they were going to become a couple. I loved reading how they really got to know each other, how they [...]
The sunflower. A surprising strength, this optimistic flower rises up from the ground, turning its petals toward the sun. It breathes life into its presence. Bright. Radiates happiness.Sometimes, when you least expect it, just like love, a book or series throws a curveball your way. Sara Ney's How to Date a Douchebag series was my curveball SWEET SURPRISE. This series and latest story, How to Date a Douchebag: The Failing Hours, snuck up on me, SEIZING ME unpredictability like love, and STEALING [...]
5 “Toasty” Stars!!!!This book has ALL MY LOVE! Oh my…….Zeke and Violet have ruined me! I was giggling so much throughout this entire book. Zeke is absolutely hilarious, and Sara Ney writes the male POV PERFECTLY!This book is the epitome of why I love assholes so much. Zeke is a pissy, giant bear. Ugh. I loved him. He’s so broody and angry all the time. Zeke needs a tutor, but Violet stands him up because he is so damn intimidating. He is forced into a Big Brother role by his coach and [...]
Don't hate me but the first book in the series didn't quite do it for me. I didn't feel anything for Oz or Jameson so I was a bit hesitant to start The Failing Hours. Thank goodness I shove my reservations aside to start this book because this was definitely a lot better than book 1.First off, Zeke! Zeke has a giant chip on his shoulder, and he's an asshole. But unlike most NA heroes who are just assholes to a select group people, Zeke was at least consistent because he's an asshole to everybody [...]
