Be careful how you learn C++. It's not OOP, more like it's capable of OOP style things but a lot of people teach it as though it's "C with objects" which it's not.

I highly recommend Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig and Barbara Moo. It's cheap, mercifully short, and is the *only* book I recommend for teaching C++ to anyone (even people that already "know" it)

Java never clicked with me either, but I did find C# enjoyable. Maybe try C# and see if Java clicks better afterward, since conceptually they are very similar. C# is easy to learn. It shouldn't take you long.
