The Studying Hours (How to Date a Douchebag, #1)

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 ...

    4.5 stars!! How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours is one of those books that has been on my TBR for FOREVER! It’s been recommended to me so many times, but I never found the time to fit it in. Thankfully, it became available on audio, so I got to it right away! I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to read this book! It’s been a while since I’ve read a great NA/college romance and this one really hit the spot! “Sweetheart, Oz is...

    4 STARSI'm finding it harder and harder to invest myself in college romances (and YA in general), unless the story is exceptionally unique. I’m not sure why that is, maybe it’s because I’ve read so many of them. Or maybe…Anyway, I didn’t pick this one up because it was a college romance. I picked it up because of the douchebag. Love me some jerks and all that.This book is so cliché it's ridiculous: A popular manwhore jock falls for a n...

    4.5 Jim + Oz STARSThe hilarious title cleverly sums up the storyline for this book. The hero, Sebastian 'Oz' Osbourne, who will slowly fall and see the heroine, Jameson Clark, as his everything by the end of the book. It may sound simple yet it takes our hero a while to catch on. Taking one arrogant, sex driven, college wrestler, and have him become interested in the sarcastic, cardigan wearing girl in the library, makes for one seriously enterta...

    ★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★College romance, what is it about these books that I love so much? Well let me tell you, this book was THE perfect example of what one should be. It had tension in spades, a gorgeous as all get out hero, who let's face it, is a douche with a capital D, and a heroine who had the absolute best snarky banter. No lie, she was amazing, and I was crushing on her big time.Jameson AKA James, favours cardigans and pe...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: This was ok, but I think it could've been better. Even though I did enjoy them -- it never really got all that deep into the characters. Anything of substance about their family life or background came in the form of short mentions in inner dialogue of past conversations. I think it would've been better if we experienced some of those conversations, instead of just being told about them. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable rea...

    3.5-4 stars! Review at Of Pens and Pages.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 ...

    ➦I'm not entirely sure what kept me away from reading this series for so long. Ok, let's face it - there are just too many books. T.T #bloggerproblems But I've been doing a lot of catching up on older releases lately and I've stumbled upon these audiobooks, picked this first one up... and the rest is history. I don't even know what to say about these. Lately I've been sucking at this reviewing business, so bare with me... ok, here goes:➦It's ...

    5 unbelievably good starsAttention: at around 56% don't give up:-)Loved, loved, loved it. The Studying Hours (How to Date a Douchebag, #1) was drama free, very funny, a lot of sexy, and sweet. Exactly what I needed to get out of my book funk.A pearl necklace and cardigan wearing heroine, who was sassy and snarky and gave as good as she got. A star wrestler with commitment issues who turned out to be a perfect example for a book boyfriend. Those t...

    Now that is how you write a college sports romance. Oh my god I feel like I have been wandering the desert looking for water waiting to read this book. All the ones I have read recently have been so hit and miss and sadly more miss than hit that by the half way mark of this book I was almost scared to keep reading incase it was all going to go to shit because I am sure I would have broken down into huge, ugly, fist wailing sobs (not pretty people...

    Get it here:Amazon US * Amazon UKI'm equal parts kicking myself for not reading this sooner and grateful to my friend for talking me into giving it a shot. I have no clue why I thought this series was set in High School but that's what was keeping me away and I was so wrong. Yes, I can admit when I'm wrong. I ended up really liking these characters and their stories. James kind of proves that what you see isn't always what you get. Oz took one lo...

    Even though I enjoyed this book and found some parts quite funny, it felt like it was missing something pretty much the entire way through. The characters felt very immature and over the top crude and were severely underdeveloped - the author only ever touched the surface, never showing any real depth. The writing was pretty good (ignoring the good amount of editing issues I noticed), I found the chapter quotes very funny, and there were some rat...

    4 "Oswald and Jim" StarsSo I'm going to admit that I've waited to read this one because the rating on GR was below 4. I know that might make me seem a tad ridiculous to some but when there are so many books published every day, I have to set some a standard in which to choose books. But with book 2 coming out and several of my trusted reviewer buddies being so excited about it, I said heck with it and dove in. I'm SO GLAD I did! The Studying Hour...

    I know!!! I KNOW!!!What was I thinking? Seriously did I have my brain replaced with piss?Possibly..Just look at the fucking title I should be running away...I apparently thought it was a great idea to read the damn thingI do not know if this is normal.. However, sometimes I get this incredibly violent and disturbing thoughts.. You know those of aggression and insane frustration which makes me want to force the other person to understand the exten...

    I realize I'm once again in the minority here. I really really wanted to love this book. The characters really grabbed hold of me. The cover was cute and different enough that it caught my eye immediately. The story had great appeal and it was one of those books where it felt like it coulda, shoulda, woulda been one of those off-the-chart 5 star reads. The banter and sexual innuendoes were quite witty and entertaining. But -- yes, I had some bigg...

    I need some study time with Oz. I 've seen this book around over the last few months and seen some of my friends luv it so I just had to read it. The title is just brilliant and grab me straight away. Once I started the book it was hard to put down. I luvd the lil quotes at the start of every chapter they were so good. I was dyin to see what the author would write next haha. The story was really good I enjoyed seeing these characters get to toge...

    Yeah, yeah, I loved the Douchebag by the endI 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 th...

    5 James & Oz Stars!!!!! What's it about?: Two people met in a library. One is a cocky, over-confident, extremely good-looking, indulgently horny, campus douchebag. The other is a sassy, sarcastic, cardigan-wearing, highlighter-obsessed, sexy-librarian look-alike. They have nothing in common. They constantly argue.And piss each other off.They should absolutely hate one another!Except... she just kissed him. With tongue.Passionately. And nothin...

    4.5 starsI really enjoyed this college rom-com. It’s the first sports romance I’ve read about wrestlers. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of wrestling. Big sweaty guys, grabbing each other in headlocks like elementary kids in a playground fight, rolling around on mats, and pinning each other down? Meh. And those unitard thingies they wear? I don’t care how much junk they show, they just aren’t sexy to me. I guess I’m in the minority ...

    5 Stars!!!Mouse, meet cat. Meow.~OzLoved this one!! Enemies to lovers vibe and best friends to lovers. Oz was a cocky, sexy, sex obsessed wrestler full of tats.Jameson was a cardigan wearing, sassy, sexy, studying, highlighting fool who was not falling for the douchebag Oz! Well....I guess she's aloud to change her mind. lol“A little friendly advice?” Her pouty lips part and I’m drawn to them as they mutter, “Never judge a girl by her car...

    4 starsLOVED the banter and friends to lovers story. Seemed a bit annoying at one point when they both kept ignoring their feelings, but hey, they're 21! Also if you're not a fan of reading about the hero getting jiggy with other girls, best to stay away from this book as he does A LOT of that while keeping an eye on the heroine. Overall, a fun read. Had a few laughs and was otherwise well written!

    4 stars! This is a book I've been seeing around the interwebs, lots of book friends have loved this one. I thought this book was an excellent escape from reality and a quick and fun read! I'm not going to write an official longer review, but I highly recommend this if you are a college/sports romance reader, this will check all of your boxes! I am so excited for the next book coming out soon :)

    What can I say about this book? My friend compared it to #Nerd, and I just wholly have to disagree. Yes, there are similarities: -Meet in Library due to tutor session type deal-Guy tries to win girl most of book-Guy is panty-dropper jock who can get any girl he wants-Little quotes at the beginning of each chapter-Good*ish type girl…And that’s where the similarities end for me. Yeah there are cute jealousies for both guys and yeah guy wants gi...
