The Studying Hours (How to Date a Douchebag #1) by Sara Ney

*adult content*

What on earth did I just read?
There are douchebags, and than there is Oz and Zeke. They are on a level of their own. It was seriously hate at first sight. So how I ask, how exactly did it happen, that I am also 100% in love with said douchebags? Either I have a problem or Sara Ney has magical powers. This can't be normal. 
How to Date a Douchebag, Sara Ney
Blurb:
CRUDE. ARROGANT. A**HOLE. 
No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking clichĂ©, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks. 

SMART. CLASSY. CONSERVATIVE. 
Make no mistake, Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent student—but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three. 

She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected. 

…EVERY DOUCHBAG HAS HIS WEAKNESS. 

He wants to be friends. 
He wants to spend time with her. 
He wants to drive her crazy. 

He wants… 

Her.


5 Stars


It is exactly as the blurb says. Oz is a crude, arrogant a** hole. The worst. I was way past the half point on the book and I still wanted to puke at some of his thoughts and actions. There can be no doubt of what kind of character Sara Ney was trying to write. The guy would probably sleep with anything that moves and has boobs. Man whore with capital M. After some days away with Jameson when you think he is gonna act better he stills smiles at some random woman in order to not burn his chances if he comes to need it later. WTF? Seriously people, this guy did not win points with me until the last f***ing pages. He was disgraceful. 

Studying hard and dressing appropriately not a saint makes, and Jameson makes sure our friend here knows it. That being said, Jameson did not have a chance in hell. The second she agreed to the bet she was lost. 

I loved the banter between them. Jameson made Oz work for it. She was sassy, clever and hilarious. And because she made him work for it they developed a really neat friendship. 

I am still not sure how and when or again how Oz won me over. But he did... don't go in thinking he changes, he doesn't. His love declaration to her in the end is proof of that. I didn't know if I should laugh or strangle him, in the end I laughed. He is, in his own maverick way, kind of adorable.

This is probably were my opinion of him started to shift a little- but JUST a little:
"But the real reason I want you to stay? You're the only girl on this campus I have any respect for."  

I already ordered the other books. His friend Zeke was even worse than him. I fear the book will drive me to insanity... but those are the best books right? the ones that provoke emotion. So yah... I kind of hate the man you write Sara... but I can't stop reading either... cause I kind of love them too... 

*face palms herself repeatedly*
GoodBye folks

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
