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.
The Studying Hours
(How to Date a Douchebag #1)
By Sara Ney
Yeah, yeah, I loved the Douchebag by the end
I was just whining today, that it frustrates me that the hero has to start out as a douchewaffle. Ok, I kind of get it. How bloody awesome is it when you get to see the finished product and you can’t help but love him.
I really enjoyed The Studying Hours. Yes, I initially had issues with Sebastian/Oz but I understood where he was coming from. I was literally experiencing the same dumbfounded surprise that James was suffering from. Could a wrestler be famous? Women throw themselves at Wrestlers just because they’re the best? Hmmm…you learn something new every day.
I can admit to being a little like Jameson. I don’t know a lot about sports and it always surprises me when fans go berserk. I thought James was a fantastic heroine. Her confidence and ability to put Sebastian in his place, made me laugh and like her even more. She wasn’t content to be another notch on his bed which was refreshing. She stuck to her guns and made him work for it.
This was definitely a slow burn romance but never felt like it dragged. I needed time to forget Sebastian’s sexual exploits that we get a glimpse of in the beginning. Once Oz and James come together, you know it’s for the long haul. They sizzle but they also connect too.
Sara Net’s style is clever and funny and I will definitely be going back for more.
