He’s not a douchebag; 
but that doesn’t stop his friends from 
turning him into one. 


So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters: 

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry? Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have pulse. Text him at: 555-254-5551 

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one. 


One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white. 

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up—they just don't get it. Douchebags or not, there's one thing they'll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME. 

Especially her.

Review of The Stydying Hours HERE
Review of The Failing Hours HERE


Seven months ago, I fell in love with a DOUCHEBAG. From the moment I read The Studying Hours, by Sara Ney, I knew that I found a series that would hold a piece of my heart forever. First, it was Jameson and Oz. Then, came Violet and Zeke. Now, Him and Her <3 I'm keeping the names a secret because fans of The How to Date a Douchebag Series need to find out on their own who the H and h are. From the EPIC hashtag to the heart-melting epilogue, The Learning Hours absolutely owned every single piece of my heart!

I usually do a little recap of the story to include in my review. With this book, I won't. Not because I don't want to, but because I feel that every reader needs to experience this story just like I did. We got the blurb and cover and what comes next will blow your mind!!! The H and h have this slow burn romance that will activate the butterfly effect in your tummies. The sexual tension between them is blazing and each moment that they create together is EXQUISITE! 

The hero left me in a puddle of mush from the very beginning. I was #TeamHim from the very beginning. The heroine made me feel many emotions. I was not sure that I could connect with her. Boy was I wrong! The connection I had with these characters was strong and I never wanted to let them go. Their love made my heart explode with happiness. Books like these are the reason I lose sleep, forget to eat and put aside any adulting. 

The Learning Hours was on my most anticipated reads of 2017. Sara Ney exceeded all of my expectations by writing one of the most beautiful, captivating, heart-melting love story that I have ever read. This slow burn romance gave me ALL the feels!!! The book hangover that comes with reading each book in this series is BRUTAL. These stories linger with you with many days after you have turned the last page. Sara Ney's writing style is FABULOUS!!! It transports you into a world where you want to live in. When you read one of her books you're not only reading a story, you're living it at the same time as the characters. You cheer, cry, laugh, scream with them. 

I don't know how to move on. I wish I could read this book all over again for the very first time. I want to reread their mesmerizing love story that started out by an awkward text, turned into a friendship and bloomed into love. The unforgettable moments that these two characters shared are imprinted in my soul. They gave me the best gift a reader can receive ... An extraordinary reading journey that left me breathless. 

I can't recommend this series enough. If you have never read a book by Sara Ney, you are seriously missing out on some amazing reads! I highly recommend this series and the other books she has written. Her writing style is unique, fun, captivating and her stories will always leave you with a smile on your lips and a heart bursting with joy. I recommend that you read this series from in order. You do not want to skip The Studying Hours & The Failing Hours. Jameson, Oz, Violet and Zeke are amazing!!!!


I give, The Learning Hours, by Sara Ney, 5 all-consuming, swoony, intense, passionate, romantic, I'm in douchebag heaven stars!
