This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE the Douchebag series! I’ve only read the first two books, but the characters have captured my heart! I was really excited to find out that there will be a 5th Douchebag book and I could not wait to read it!
I probably shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up to much because I kinda feel so-so about Abe and Sky’s book The Lying Hours. Not that this book wasn’t good – it just can’t hold a candle to the first two books in the series that I read and loved!
The first part of the book was a little bit slow – this is where Abe is lying to Sky and we get a few LOL chat messages between the two. I read this on the plane and I just couldn’t help but laugh out loud at the online banter. This really reminded me of the mid-late 90s when IRC was super popular in the Philippines and I was online all the time (not to find love, mind you).
Anyway, it is about halfway to the book where Abe is exposed but I actually thought that Skylar very quickly forgave him. Plus, there was a scene that gave me Gendry (from GOT) vibes.
Don’t get me wrong – this book was funny and smart and steamy, but I felt that the relationship development felt too rushed. Sure, the chemistry between Abe and Sky was there, but it just felt too fast for me, anyway.
