Synopsis (Goodreads):
Zeke Daniels isn't just a douchebag; he's an a**hole.

A total and complete jerk, Zeke keeps people at a distance. He has no interest in relationships—most a**holes don’t.

Dating?
Being part of a couple? Nope. Not for him.

He's never given any thought to what he wants in a girlfriend, because he's never had any intention of having one. Shit, he barely has a relationship with his family, and they're related; his own friends don’t even like him.

So why does he keep thinking about Violet DeLuca?
Sweet, quiet Violet—his opposite in every sense of the word.
The light to his dark, even her damn name sounds like rays of sunshine and happiness and shit.

And that pisses him off, too.
Thoughts on The Failing Hours: Oh. My. Gravy. Zeke was so unrepentantly douchey in the beginning, I could NOT see how Violet and he were going to connect. Because the guy has no filter and doesn't care (mostly) about what others think of him and it made him...not so nice.

Not so nice AT ALL.

But Zeke has reasons for being the way he is. The poor guy has some serious abandonment issues and he's taken the things said to him over the years a little too much to heart. It isn't pretty. Watching him work through his issues was messy and cringe-worthy and completely worth it.

And that was mostly because of Violet. She pushed him to be better just by being her. Let's just say it took a lot to get Zeke thinking outside his douchey little box. It took smiles and friendship and it certainly wasn't all smooth sailing. A douche doesn't change his designation overnight, you know.

Anywho. I really REALLY liked watching Zeke's evolution and Violet finding the strength to stand up for herself. Douchebags aren't so bad once you get to know them. Well, sort of. Zeke and his crew are probably the exception, aren't they?
