Oh my gosh, The Studying Hours was AMAZING! Where has Sara Ney been all my reading “career”?! This book was a sexy, hilarious, and entertaining standalone New Adult sports romance, and it completely exceeded my expectations! Sara Ney did a phenomenal job with the storyline and characters, and I absolutely loved her writing style and sense of humor. I laughed out loud so many times from beginning to end that I seriously lost count. The Studying Hours was my first Sara Ney novel, and it most definitely won’t be the last!

I loved their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their friendship/relationship progressed throughout. I loved reading the book from both Sebastian and Jameson’s POV, and I truly loved all of their banter and interactions with each other. The back and forth between them was nothing short of hilarious and entertaining, and I honestly couldn’t stop chuckling throughout the entire book. Sara Ney’s sense of humor was epic, and I absolutely loved all of the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. They were romantic comedy gold. Most of the secondary characters were wonderful as well, and I’m looking forward to reading some of their stories in the rest of the How to Date a Douchebag series. The Studying Hours was extremely funny and riveting from start to finish, and I was very happy with the conclusion to Sebastian and Jameson’s story.

   The Studying Hours was a sexy, humorous, and highly entertaining standalone New Adult sports romance, and I would definitely recommend it!
