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 cliché, 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

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
