What I thought
Ok, so, a girl has to be honest when it comes to doing reviews. Anyone that knows me or reads this blog with any kind of consistency knows that I don’t do well with ‘funny’. Sarcasm – i’m really good with but funny books are altogether different. M.E Carter (if you havne’t read her books then you really should) introduced me to Sara Ney. I have to say I was a but apprehensive but when an author I trust sends me in the direction of another I take note. So a couple of months ago I read How To Date a Douchebag and I absolutely loved it. When I had the opportunity for an early read of #2 The Failing Hours, well that was a no brainer.
When I started reading it I was a little concerned, the very beginning was very familiar. It was similar to the first book. Thank God though I was worried for nothing. The Failing Hours was a really enjoyable read and absolutely on its own merits. It made me laugh several times because while i’m not good with funny books i felt that it all flowed so naturally. Sara Ney nailed it and it didn’t come across as trying too hard. Of course then it had depth that wasn’t necessarily expected. Zeke is a bit of an onion – peel back a layer and there is another one, be careful too because he may well make your eyes water too! And Violet – let us not forget her. Such a strong powerful woman. She has been through more than anyone should at her age. Just the perfect person to sort out our favourite douchebag.
SO in all, I loved it. I flew through reading it because it was just such an addictive read. I was wondering just what he was going to do to self sabotage himself and how the hell he was going to fix it. Just like car crash TV, I couldn’t look away! I cant wait to hear what you think of it!

I live in the midwest, but “Will Write for Travel,” and believe everyone should follow their dreams, no matter how big or small. My favorite authors include Cindy Miles, S Walden, Suzanne Enoch, Tessa Dare (to name a few). I am a glutton for Historical, RomCom, Sports and MC romance.
