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.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

As far as new adult sports romances go,  How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours doesn’t have the most unique plot out there. In fact, it’s pretty cliché. The douchebag athlete, the surprisingly non-nerd nerd, a dare, sparks. But Sara Ney wrote it in a way that made it refreshing and a delight to read. She made her characters likable, the banter witty and hilarious, and the sexual tension sizzling and well-written.

ARC Review | Wrecking Ball by P. Dangelico

  Hmm. This is a hard one. I love fake relationship tropes. I live for it! Same goes for the brooding hero and sassy heroine combination. Add in slow burn and a little sports element, and it’s pretty much a perfect book for me.

Review⎜Heat (Elements of Chemistry #2) by Penny Reid

Although I liked this more than the first book, I still wasn’t in love with it.   In this installment, Kaitlyn and Martin take their relationship to the next level. Meaning: sex sex sex. Yes, people. This book has them sleeping together like bunnies in the Spring.    I didn’t find […]

Review⎜Attraction (Elements of Chemistry #1) by Penny Reid

  Okay, I’ll just start this review by saying I only gave Attraction a rough 2.5/2.75 stars because I managed to finish the whole series.   Kaitlyn Parker has been Martin Sandeke‘s chemistry partner for the last two semesters, and despite the fact that she has been lusting over him for so […]
