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 time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three.
She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected. …
EVERY DOUCHEBAG HAS HIS WEAKNESS.
He wants to be friends.
He wants to spend time with her.
He wants to drive her crazy.
He wants… Her. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
The Studying Hours was an enjoyable read. I enjoyed the banter between Jameson and Sebastian. Jameson is good at making herself, not seem like the average college student. With her Cardigans and constantly studying in the library. There is a different side of Jameson though, as usual people are quick to judge someone without even knowing them. Sebastian, well he is a douche. It’s all about that notch on the best post, that, of course, is until he meets his match. Jameson has no idea who Sebastian aka Oz is. Which I think gives her the upper hand. Their relationship is very complicated at first. She has no time for a douche like him. She can play a role, as the girl who doesn’t care at all what Oz does. I think if she pushed anything, he would have just left her alone. But these things never happen to Oz. The sexual tension was there throughout the book. Ney has lovely way of writing, that keeps you there, on some edge. Waiting to see what else is going to happen. It was great to see how these two grew as characters. I loved Jameson, she was strong and held on to what she believed in. Overall, Four Boundless Stars.
