The Studying Hours was my first read of the year, and if you’ve read it, not so surprising 5 star read of the year also. Of course I could barely contain myself with the unfettered excitement that came with the news of Zeke’s book. In the interest full disclosure, I could not stand him. He seemed to have a chip bigger than his ego on his shoulder, and for the life of me I could not understand how anyone could tolerate him.
However post reading TFH, I won’t hear a word said against him. Yes, he it’s true; he was bigger douchebag than OZ. It’s also true; he said the wrong thing 90% of the time. He was moody and ungrateful and an all-around pain in the behind.
Beneath his douchey exterior is a kind, giving soul so hurt by his past, his default is to lash out. It’s a redemptive story that would not be made possible without our amazing heroine, Violet. She’s a quiet, gentle character whose world is thrown awry by Zeke’s entrance in it. In tutoring Zeke she teaches him more than he bargained for in more ways than one, which he makes clear he does not appreciate.
Although an unassuming character, Vi makes a huge impact on Zeke. She deserves a medal for putting up with him, but don’t be fooled, she puts him through his paces too. It’s a hilarious laugh out loud journey and I honest to god loved every minute of it. The emotional aspect was one that I did not expect, but it brought dimension to the story and further endeared me to both of them.
I’m desperately awaiting my next fix, and can only imagine what Sara Ney has up her sleeve to topple a douchebag like Zeke.
Zeke is the total douche you don't want to like, but do. I couldn't help but love him, he's so angry about everything in life, even the kid he's signed on the Big programme, but Kyle doesn't let that get in his way. He' a total douche to his friends/roommate/teammates so will Violet be any different?
Not really, but Violet is the kill them with kindness type even when they're being nasty. I loved Violet, she was so petite, pretty, cute and smart, she might be meek but she's doesn't pull any punches. So when she's assigned to be Zeke's tutor she's wary and nervous by his size and doucheness seeing as Zere is a wrestler. The more time they spend together, not just tutoring, but on the big programme ,the more they develop a relationship as such. How long will it take Zeke to mess things up, because you know he will and will Violet be forgiving to his ways?
I loved the fact it wasn't just one person Zeke was horrible to, but everyone it would seem and Violet, she always wants to see the best in people's flaws and all, but there is something in Violet that doesn't make Zeke as bad, but even poor Violet has her limit. I loved, the easiness of this book and how you got lost in Violet and Zeke's story, it was fun, yet meaningful and with emotion.
I really need to read the first book in the series, because this book was amazing.
Ezekiel (Zeke) Daniels is the douchebag in the title. A college wrestler for Iowa, he is rich and angry all the time. His coach orders him to join the Big Brother programme to learn about kids with waaay bigger issues in their lives than his problems with his absentee parents. Also, he is struggling with biology and is paying for a tutor to help him.
Violet is the tutor in question. She is the light to Zeke's dark, a gentle person who works in the library, tutors other students and babysits for student parents. Zeke's large stature, aggressive demeanour and foul mouth momentarily scare Violet and when asked directly by Zeke if 'Violet' is available, she says no.
Brought together by circumstances time and again Violet and Zeke form a strange quasi-friendship. But Zeke's family history and his instinctive fear of rejection come between them time and again.
There was nothing wrong with this book AT ALL. In comparison to some of the angst-ridden YA/NA novels I've read it's pretty good, it just didn't grab me. I wasn't invested in Zeke or Violet - he was too angry and she was too nice. I don't think my confusion over the first book helped either.
I absolutely flipping loved this! I was hooked from the first page, I laughed, sighed and cringed my way through. I really didn't like Zeke but half way through the book he started to grow on me and by the end he had worked his way into my heart. Do yourself a favour, one click this today
