ABRAHAM DAVIS—Honest Abe to his friends—IS IN OVER HIS HEAD... 

He’s a fixer and a do good-er. The all-knowing, resident "grandfather" on the wrestling team who everyone relies on to fix their problems. His teammates go to him for everything; advice, homework, or when they need a sober driver at three in the morning--whether he likes it or not. 

Abe’s current mission is easy: mend his roommates broken heart by helping him find a girlfriend on the LoveU app--without getting caught in the lie... 


Over her bad grades. Over her meddling older brother and his two best friends. And over dating douchebags. What she wants to know is: where have all the nice guys gone? 

She longs for a handsome, sweet, and honest guy who can make her laugh. In one last ditch effort to prove that he exists—Skylar turns to LoveU. 

On her worst day, Skylar has no filter (it’s a miracle she hasn’t been ditched mid-date). On her best, she’s as wholesome, and sweet, as pie. On Thursday? She matches with Abraham Davis’s roommate. 

Skylar Gabriel is falling for the wrong guy—she just doesn’t realize it yet.

The How to Date a Douchebag Series is where it all started for me! The Studying Hours (HtDaD, #1) was my first book by Sara Ney and I never looked back! I have read every single one of her books and she's in my top five favorite authors. If you are looking for a fun, sexy and unputdownable read, look no further! Sara Ney always delivers the laughs, the sexiness and all the feels!

I was really excited to find out that one of my favorite series of all times was getting another book. I was really sad when I read the last words of The Coaching Hours (HtDaD, #4) thinking it was my last reading escape in this super fun world Sara Ney created. When I learned that the series was continuing, I was over the moon excited!!!

I really enjoyed The Lying Hours. From the fun texting between Skylar and Abe to the awesome supporting cast of characters, this was a reading escape that had me turning the pages from beginning to end! It was fun to see Skylar Gabriel and Abe Davies interact on the LoveU app. Skylark is so over dating douchebags. She wants to find a good guy and Abe Davies is exactly what she's looking for. The only problem is she thinks he's someone else. Abe is caught in a major lie when he tries to help his friend on the LoveU app. He meets Skylar and the last thing he wants is to see her go out on a date with his friend. Skylar Gabriel is falling for him. She just doesn't know it yet. What will happen when Abe's lie is revealed?

Skylar and Abe had an amazing chemistry and it was entertaining to see them get to know each other. Skylar was a fun heroine that knew exactly what she wanted. Abe was a sweetheart and I have to admit that he's one of my favorites in this series. I was super excited when my favourite douchebag of them all made an appearance in this book. I won't spoil it for fans of this series, but trust me that you will love every minute of his role in this story. I also really liked Hannah. She's Skylar's best friend and she's hilarious!!!! We all need a Hannah in our lives! 

The Lying Hours was an awesome reading journey that left me with a smile on my face! I am so glad that this series is not over and I can't wait for my next reading journey with the DtDaD crew. If you have not read anything by Sara Ney yet, you are seriously missing out!
