The Studying Hours (How to Date a Douchebag #1) by Sara Ney – @SaraNey @MuffyNewtown #JoshGoodman #Romance #NewAdult #LaughOutLoud

Happy Monday guys, I hope this weather stays for a little while longer, I’m loving not having to wear jumpers and a coat every day.

I have recently jumped in and become a Romance Package member of Audible and I’m using it to my full advantage! It’s like Kindle Unlimited for audios, and I’m LOVING it.

I picked up this little cracker and listened to it over the weekend.

⭐⭐⭐⭐·5 Cardigan Wearing Stars


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…



⭐⭐⭐⭐·5 Cardigan Wearing Stars!

Jameson ‘James’ Clark is an exceptional student and works hard at it, she dresses in very conservative clothes, and wears pearls, but she is no prude!

Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osbourne is the darling of the high school, a wrestling champ, and the guy that all of the girls want to bang, which he takes full advantage of.

After a bet with his friends in the library to get “the prude” to kiss him, you would think that the story would turn into the usual girl swooning and turning into putty in his hands…….but nope!
James gives as good as she gets and makes him work for it.

I loved this story, loved the 2 of them together, loved the banter between them.

The angst and steam level between Oz and James is a slow burn, turning into an inferno!

The story is witty, funny and made me laugh all the way through.

🎧🎧 Narrated by Josh Goodman who is a new narrator for me, and Muffy Newtown who is just a narration goddess #VoiceCrush
These 2 narrators were perfect together, they bounced off of each other brilliantly.

Prepare for a bucket of laughter

Doctor Perry by Kirsten McKenzie @Kiwimrsmac @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Monday all!

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for this very unique horror story.Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Kirsten McKenzie for her disturbing words🖤

Doctor Perry

Doctor Perry

Under the Hippocratic Oath, a doctor swears to remember that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

Doctor Perry assures his elderly patients at the Rose Haven Retirement Home that he can offer warmth, sympathy, and understanding. Doctor Perry is a liar.

Hiding from a traumatic past, Elijah Cone wants nothing to do with the other residents at the Rose Haven, content to sit at his window waiting to die. He’s about to learn that under Doctor Perry death is the easy option…

My Thoughts

this book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before! A unique twist on a horror novel… in most ways this was much scarier than any book with ghosts, ghouls, and gore…. the evil that lies in Dr. Perry far surpasses that of any ghost….

Rose Haven nursing home was a very depressing place, just as the tone of much of this book was… but things are even more bleak than they appear with the likes of Dr. Perry and his medications in residence…. this book was in a word disturbing! I felt for the nursing home residents although we never really got to know them all that well(But perhaps that is for the best?) dr. Perry was unlike almost any other villain that I have read of before, he was sinister!

This is not my usual genre, but I would absolutely recommend to fans of all things horror….

*** many thanks to the author and Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy of this book ***
