I am so pleased that I discovered this author because this series is shaping up to be one of my favourite sports romances, containing a kryptonite of mine – douchey but loveable heroes.
“He swears too much. He isn’t nice. He isn’t sweet. He isn’t kind. Or generous with words. Or affection. But he’s reliable. Dependable. And he was there for me tonight.”
Zeke is a big fat grump, he is rude to everyone and moody as hell, but you know how it goes – he is misunderstood godammit! I loved him and I’m not going to lie, he did push my boundaries a little bit, he was so mean and defensive all the time. But..he was hard not to love, he just needed a big cuddle, and Violet was just the woman for the job.
Our heroine in this story is the complete opposite of Zeke, she is quiet, has a stutter, and is full of sunshine and rainbows wherever she goes, she oozes happy thoughts and is the sweetest little thing. Don’t let that fool you though, she has had it tough, just like Zeke has, and they find that they have a lot more in common than they first realise.
“She is everything on the inside that she appears to be on the outside. Sweet. Compassionate. Kind. And beautiful— heart, body, and mind. Violet DeLuca is my opposite in every sense of the word.”
She was not a pushover that’s for sure and I thought she did a fantastic job bringing our guy into line.
If you haven’t started this series yet, DO IT. Contains hot douchey guys who compete in the college wrestling league – and heroine’s with endearing personalities. Slow burning romance. Bad guys who fall hard. What’s not to love?
Eagerly anticipating more to come in this series.
The Failing Hours is a standalone new adult romance, told from dual POV’s.
