The Failing Hours by Sara Ney

After listening to The Learning Hours and reading The Studying Hours in that order (Yeah, I did things a bit backwards this time around) I was all about knowing more about Zeke and what made act like the douchiest asshat around and I was not disappointed! I ended up adoring not only Zeke, but Violet as well. Their journey was filled with all the feels, and then some, that kept me turning the pages and being quite upset when there were no more words to devour.

Zeke is the douchiest asshat around and he doesn’t care one bit about what any thinks or says about it. He is who he is and that’s that. I will admit to wanting to reach out and smack him numerous times throughout the book, but those moments were balanced out with ones that had me wanting to hug him, because there was so much more underneath his armor that showed how even the biggest douche could have a golden heart.

Upon first meeting Violet I let out a frustrated groan and prayed that there was more to the girl or it was gonna one of those long and painful reads, but she surprised me, a lot. She isn’t one who just throws herself into things, she is quite cautious, and yet she has a quiet strength about her that simmers beneath the surface and will come out in vibrant force when push comes to shove.

Zeke and Violet’s journey to their HEA was a fun one to experience. On the surface they appear to be absolute opposites, but as they continue to spend more time together and get under each others skins, you find that they have an unlikely common bond that draws them closer. The ups and downs were many, and some of the downs were pretty heavy, but I loved watching as they worked through their issues and became stronger separately as well as a couple in the end.

I really enjoyed The Failing Hours. It was just as well written as the first two in the series and like the other two, I was hooked from the start. But what pushed up one extra level were Zeke and Violet. They were characters that had a lot depth and I loved watching them evolve as the story progressed. I liked catching up with Oz and James and how they put their two cents in when necessary. Now that I’m all caught up, I’m definitely looking forward to The Coaching Hours and finding out which douchebag is up on the chopping block!

Zeke Daniels isn’t just a douchebag; he’s an a**hole.

A total and complete jerk, Zeke keeps people at a distance. He has no interest in relationships—most a**holes don’t.


Being part of a couple? Nope. Not for him.

He’s never given any thought to what he wants in a girlfriend, because he’s never had any intention of having one. Shit, he barely has a relationship with his family, and they’re related; his own friends don’t even like him.

So why does he keep thinking about Violet DeLuca?

Sweet, quiet Violet—his opposite in every sense of the word.

The light to his dark, even her damn name sounds like rays of sunshine and happiness and shit.

And that pisses him off, too.
