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.

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.


He wants to be friends.
He wants to spend time with her.
He wants to drive her crazy.

He wants…

I really enjoyed this college rom-com. How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours is the first sports romance I’ve read about wrestlers. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of wrestling. Big sweaty guys, grabbing each other in headlocks like elementary kids in a playground fight, rolling around on mats, and pinning each other down? Meh. And those unitard thingies they wear? I don’t care how much junk they show, they just aren’t sexy to me. I guess I’m in the minority because all the girls on campus get lady boners over the wrestlers. They must have a really sucky football team or something. Who knows? So yeah. The wrestlers are a big deal at this college and, apparently, the majority of them are big douche canoes.

Case in point: Oz. You know how in some books the hero seems like a jerk, but deep down inside he’s just hurt or insecure, but really sweet? Well, that’s not Oz. He genuinely is a Grade A, self-centered, sex on the brain douche. And the thing is, while he changes for the better, there are parts of him that remain douchey. Oddly enough, though, I really liked him. However, I wasn’t cool with how lewd his friends are towards women, and I thought he should have done more to defend the female population. His friend/teammate Zeke, in particular, is a prick of epic proportions, and I was less than satisfied that his involvement in Oz and James’s relationship remains unresolved.

I liked James. Her sarcasm, confidence, and take-no-crap attitude really won me over. The push and pull between her and Oz is highly enjoyable and I loved them together as a couple. I was pleasantly surprised that there’s little to no drama. This amusing story is also surprisingly sexy. I’m looking forward to reading more books in the series.
