How to Date A Douchebag #2-The Failing Hours by Sara Ney – Cassie’s Review

Why I Read It

Because I love a good douchebag.

What I Rated It

What It’s About

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.

Cassie’s Review


“The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”

If a book/character had to be chosen to personify this quote, it would be this book/Zeke Daniels. You are not suppose to go into this book liking him. You aren’t even suppose to like him for the first chunk of the book, but if you are the type for crude/somewhat taboo humor…HE WILL CRACK YOU UP. He is so honest it hurts. He is a long game changer and he could not have been done any other way. You see his transformation through the ENTIRE book.

Violet. Always the quiet ones who roar the loudest at the douchebags of the world. She is soft, kind, giving, and everything Zeke is not. It is the perfect storm for an opposites attract love story. She completes him. She makes him a better person.

This book is a lot more serious at its roots than James’ and Oz’s story, but the humor we fell in love with in their story pops up at the best times. This book is angry turned tender…at least where Violet is concerned. This book will have you simultaneously rooting for and wanting to stab Zeke Daniels. Cause aint no bigger douchebag out there.
