THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY. Well, there are, but they’re not who this story is about. This story is about me—the coach’s daughter. When I moved to Iowa to live with my dad, the university's take-no-prisoners wrestling coach, I thought transferring would be easy as pie—living with my father would be temporary, and he'd make sure his douchebag wrestlers left me alone THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY.

    4.5 stars!!! The Coaching Hours is the fourth and final book in Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series. I was equal parts excited and sad to read this book. I've been looking forward to it for the longest, but I hate knowing this series is coming to an end. It's been a wonderful ride! The star of this book is the coach of the wrestling teams daughter. She is a transfer student and the coach has quite a list of rules from his players… the main one is no dating his daughter. The majority of the wres 4.5 stars!!! The Coaching Hours is the fourth and final book in Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series. I was equal parts excited and sad to read this book. I've been looking forward to it for the longest, but I hate knowing this series is coming to an end. It's been a wonderful ride! The star of this book is the coach of the wrestling teams daughter. She is a transfer student and the coach has quite a list of rules from his players… the main one is no dating his daughter. The majority of the wrestlers heed this warning, but there are two that just can’t help themselves. But this heroine can handle herself. Those douchebags need to learn a lesson. And I’m just the girl to teach them. 
This story is a bit different than the others in this series. The douchebag hero is not to be found here. It’s not so much a sporty book like the others, but it is a very sweet friends to lovers story. A book about roommates that turn into more. It’s a bit of a slow burn and I loved that about it. I though the heroine was fantastic and I especially loved the hero. He is such a ‘nice guy’, and so sweet, caring, and all around fun. 

 I’ve been super vague about the characters in this book, but that’s only because I don’t want to spoil a thing for potential readers! Especially those that have read the entire series. I love all these characters. Even the ones I didn’t start out loving ended up stealing my heart. There was a particular character in this book that really changed his ways. I love what Ney did with him and no one was more surprised than me that I ended up loving him! The Coaching Hours is funny, sweet, sexy, and emotional. Sara Ney is one funny lady. Seriously, even the chapter headings at the start of each new chapter had me laughing out loud. I adored this book and I adore this series! All the Douchebag books can be read as standalones, but I’m happy I read them all and read them in order! I wouldn’t have wanted to miss a single thing! Definitely recommend to lovers of sports romance/NA!

    I'm so sad. How to Date a Douchebag is over. It was so fun to read this series, get to know protagonists I had no idea I'd adore, and a sport I never knew I'd enjoy reading about.

It was so fun to read this series, get to know protagonists I had no idea I'd adore, and a sport I never knew I'd enjoy reading about. This whole series was a pleasant surprise, and it's a bittersweet feeling to let it go. While there are no douchebags in the final installment—at least, not where it matters the most—The Coaching Hours gave as much as the other books and was a great end to the series. This sweet friends-to-lovers romance had everything I want in a New Adult romance—realistic characters still trying to figure out how to adult, learning from mistakes, and becoming better people because of it, great pace and banter, and chemistry that will leave me swooning and giggling. As the wrestling coach's only daughter, transfer student Anabelle Donnelly is officially off-limits to the team. But Coach Donnelly's threat to stay away from his daughter or risk consequences only serves to challenge two incredibly stupid and careless members. This ends up with Anabelle in tears, taking refuge in the library spot she's claimed since moving. Some girl, pretty as she is, took Elliot St. Charles's spot at the library, and now he's stuck settling for an inferior spot. When he discovers the same girl crying, he can't help but go to her and ask what's wrong. And that's how Elliot and Anabelle become more than passing acquaintances. And when Anabelle finds out Elliot has a spare room, they might just become roommates, too. According to Elliot's friends, girls and boys can't stay just friends, especially if they're both relatively attractive and are going to live under one roof. Elliot wants to prove them wrong, but resisting his gorgeous roommate who's becoming one of his best friends is harder than he thinks. We finally have Elliot's book! If he seems familiar, it's because he's the roommate of Oz and Zeke, the first two heroes of the franchise. Since reading those book, I got to know Elliot as the non-douchebag, non-jock friend; reliable, studious, and good. So it wasn't a surprise that I'd like him, and that Anabelle would like him instantly. He has a laser-sharp focus on his goal to get into a good grad school, but still knows how to have fun and meet up with friends. Anabelle is great, if not a little too nice and trusting at one point. She works hard, is genuinely sweet and caring, and can give as good as they get. I think she has a great character growth in this book once the story comes to the plot twist. She handled it well, but it was still an accurate depiction of how one would feel and act if they go through what she does. It highlighted her strength as a person. Sara Ney's witty writing style is here, along with the tension and fantastic steamy scenes that never fail to make me blush. The Coaching Hours had two endearing and likable characters with great rapport and heartwarming friendship between them, all with the sexual tension brewing slowly but steadily to a boiling point. The progression of Elliot and Anabelle's relationship was wonderful. Just the right amount of slow burn for their story. And I just have to say this since I know you know how much I hated one of the secondary characters in the series, but he kind of grew on me when he became less of a douchebag, and there was a moment he was redeemed. I can't believe I'm saying this now, but I'm kind of interested to read about him. If you're looking for a fun college sports romance with characters you'll love to hate, then give How to Date a Douchebag a try. And if you're looking for a swoony friends-to-lovers/roomies romance, you'll definitely love The Coaching Hours.

But what it did have was a swoony, slow burn friend to lovers story that was full of sizzle and smiles. There are no jocks to be found in this book. Well, not the main character anyway. But there is the coach's daughter, her friendship with a guy that she didn't see coming, and the development of their relationship from something sweet to something with a lot more sizzle. I love a good friends to lovers trope, and this one delivered in spades. The progression of the relationship in this book was what really made it for me. It was just so perfectly paced. I loved getting a nice guy for once, though that's not to say he was without his own brand of issues. And while the book took a turn into a particular plot device that I'm not typically a fan of, it totally worked for me here. I also loved a particular secondary character that gets redeemed in this story. This served as the perfect icing on the cake. This story was cute and swoony, and definitely hit the spot just right. There's a reason this author went straight to my auto-buy list from the very first book in this series; her versatility to deliver amazing characters that stand out in their own right is just a small part of it. I'm sad to see this series come to an end, but I can't wait to see what Sara Ney has in store for her readers next. ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest review Find me on:

Everything with Elliot and me was left unfulfilled. I finally had to see what all the fuss was about for myself. There has been so much love for this series that my curiosity was piqued! Leave it to me to join the party late. I was able to follow the storyline easily even though there was mention of other characters from the previous books. That being said, this can be read as a standalone. While the previous Heroes have been ”Douchebags”, that cannot be said about the Hero of this one. Elliot St. Charles made this book one heck of a sweet, sexy enjoyable read! When the story starts, it wasn’t clear who the Hero was going to be. There were two other characters who were on Iowa’s wrestling team who were vying for the Heroine’s affections but truth be told they were only in it to win a bet. Once Elliot and Anabelle have their first interaction in the storyline it was obvious that he was the man who was going to steal not only the Heroine’s heart but this reader’s too. Anabelle is Coach Donnelly’s estranged daughter, who has recently transferred from her university in Massachusetts to finish out her college career at Iowa University. Her parents split up years ago and her mother has tried her hardest to keep Ana away from her father, but she’s twenty-one now and wants the opportunity to build a relationship with her Dad. While she wants to reconnect, she doesn’t necessarily want to live under his roof. Ana is desperate to find affordable housing near campus. After making a complete fool of herself by getting drunk at a frat party, a perfect opportunity practically falls into her lap. Elliot was at the party and saw that she needed rescuing and brings her back to his apartment to sleep it off. Their friendship only seems to strengthen from that point and soon they become roommates when she moves into his spare room. From the moment they first met both Elliot and Ana secretly felt an attraction. They fell into an easy friendship and became an integral part of each other’s lives. Elliot was ever the perfect gentleman and incredibly sweet. His inability to read the situation that was building between Ana and him made him extremely endearing. The anticipation for things to heat up between the couple almost made me lose my mind!! Just wait for the Back Massage scene!! OMG! Holy freaking H-O-T-N-E-S-S!!! Once things start to heat up for the couple, there is no quelling their insatiable desires. But the guy who has continuously been the ”Knight in Shining Armor” isn’t exactly ready to start a serious relationship. Elliot has had plans set in motion for some time which were in place before Ana became a part of his life. But Ana isn’t the kind of girl who can keep love and sex separate. She’s already fallen hard for the beautiful man who’s become the only true best friend she's ever had. Will she be able to move on from Elliot? Can Elliot easily forget the woman who has somehow managed to claim a piece of his heart? Here are my overall ratings on the book: Heroes: 5 Heroine: 3 Plot: 4 Angst: 4 Steam: 5 Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4.5 THE COACHING HOURS releases tomorrow!!

Amazon US * Amazon UK This book started out okay and had me intrigued about the main characters pretty quickly. I was interested in seeing how they would come together and when they did I enjoyed how everything played out. They were actually both very easy to like and individually I don't really have any complaints about them. Unfortunately as the book went on I started to lose interest because I never felt that spark of chemistry between the characters. Other things came into play, such as a revenge plot that felt underdeveloped and immature, and it all kind of pushed the focus off of the romance. I wanted more from the actual main characters, I guess. Especially when the majority of the end all played out while they were going to two different schools and not physically together. I also started to feel like the author was confused about who the Hero was at the end of the story when she brought in a character I personally hated and had him get closer to the heroine. I didn't feel like that character was redeemed enough to randomly be a "friend" to the heroine so it all seemed very odd to me. And the fact she was going through a big thing in her life and it wasn't the hero that was there with her for most of that just added to my confusion at the end. Overall, this wasn't a bad story and I there were many parts I liked but in the end I wish there had more between the main characters. I think anyone that liked a well written NA novel will enjoy this one though so I definitely recommend if you have a craving for the campus good guy.

I really enjoy the writing as a whole. I do think that there are too many parts where sentences are missing a subject and most of the time it works. Sometimes it's a bit awkward, though. But what the hell do I know, I'm not a writer. I notice patterns, however, and my brain drives me nuts. :D But anywhatthehellamitalkignabout, great addition to the series and let it be sealed! And no, I will never run out of cute seal gifs.

I was blindsided along with the h by the H's behavior (view spoiler)[abruptly drops the bomb he is moving away for grad school and that he doesn't want a relationship (after they've slept together) and leaves her (hide spoiler)] and I never felt like he earned her forgiveness. It felt like no grovel 2.5 Stars Overall Opinion: I felt like this one was disappointing. I have enjoyed this series overall, but I didn't really enjoy this one. It felt slow at first, and it took me a bit to get into it. I was blindsided along with the h by the H's behavior (view spoiler)[abruptly drops the bomb he is moving away for grad school and that he doesn't want a relationship (after they've slept together) and leaves her (hide spoiler)] and I never felt like he earned her forgiveness. It felt like no grovel whatsoever! I also felt like the drama thrown in towards the end (view spoiler)[unexpected pregnancy (hide spoiler)] was a little OTT and cliche to where I disliked the H even more for his actions. The ending though?! Why didn't we get any time with them working things out? Or, again, any GROVEL?! They literally make up at 98% then we get a half-a$s epilogue (that seemed more about side characters than the mcs). Not my cuppa 😒 Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Anabelle and Elliott's story. Anabelle is a transfer student at the college that her dad coaches wrestling. She finds out that there is a bet made to see who is the first to sleep with her, and Elliott consoles her when she is found crying in the library. They bump into each other a few more times. Since Anabelle is desperate to get out of her Dad's house, she ends up moving into Elliott's spare room. They form an instant friendship, and the more time they spend together the more they find it hard not to develop stronger feelings for one another. There is some significant roadblocks in their way though...but they do get a HFN ending. POV: This alternated between Anabelle and Elliott's POV. Overall Pace of Story: Slow at first, but then it got better. I never skimmed though. Instalove: No, they are friends first and then fall in love. H rating: 2.5 stars. Elliott. I liked him, but then I didn't like him so much. He made some choices and said some hurtful things that ended up really bothering me. h rating: 3.5 stars. Anabelle. I liked her. There were times where I wanted her to demand more from the H though. Sadness level: Low/moderate. I teared up a few times, but I never needed any tissues. Push/Pull: Yes (view spoiler)[ They both push away at times, but the H pushes away a good bit more. They also both pursue the relationship, but I'd say that the H is the main pursuer. (hide spoiler)] Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. Descriptive sex: Yes OW/OM drama: Yes (view spoiler)[ There is an OM that makes the H jealous. (hide spoiler)] Sex scene with OW or OM: No Cheating: No Separation: Yes (view spoiler)[They are separated for months, but there was no mention or suggestion of other partners during this time for the H (the h kisses OM). (hide spoiler)] Possible Triggers: Yes (view spoiler)[Unexpected pregnancy (on page) (hide spoiler)] Closure: This had not enough closure for me. I wanted more time with them as an actual couple and making things work! I would call this a HFN ending. Safety: This one should be either Safe or Safe with exception for most safety gang readers depending on personal preferences. (view spoiler)[ - Does Not have cheating - Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW/OM - Does have both the H and h pushing away - Does have a separation between the h and H - Does Not have abuse - Does Not have OTT sad parts - Does Not have a HEA ending (hide spoiler)]

I wanted to try to keep it at a slow simmer, gingerly making my way through until it was done. Unfortunately, all great things must come to an end and the douchebags definitely had a remarkable run, didn’t they? But then again, the last two books of the series weren’t about doucebags at all. They were about phenomenally nice guys. The unicorn nice guy you’d find while away at school. Elliott was easy to love and as the final story, his and Anabelle’s was certainly swoon-worthy adorable. We all know that Anabelle is the wrestling coach’s daughter, but who is Elliott? Well, most of us know that he was Oz and Zeke’s former roommate. He was no jock and not a douche. He was a hardworking, honorable man who came from a great family and who had plans to make a success of himself and make his family proud. There was no room for distractions in his life and now that his roommates have moved on, his life has been quiet. Until Anabelle kept ending up in his path. Fate sure has a funny way of giving us exactly what and who we need… even if we don’t know we need it. While I absolutely loved the slow-burn, friends-to-lovers story that developed between Elliott and Anabelle, the ending was a bittersweet conclusion for me. The author gave a sweet wrapup that left virtually no loose ends to the series, but I was so sad to let all of these characters go. I think Zeke and Rhett will live in my heart forever! Btw, is anyone else impressed by the way Rex turned out and wondering if there will be a book for Gunderson?

I opened up the book and saw this: "Thank you, Internet, for providing the inspiration for the dating quotes at the beginning of each chapter. They're all based on real conversations, pick-up lines, come-ons, and texts between actual people." Let me tell you they are hilarious. Some had me laughing so hard while reading in bed that I had to stop reading and tell my husband what they said. The wrestling coach has a daughter who is transferring to the college he works at and to put it mildly, he doesn't want any of his wrestler sniffing around his daughter. He gives the guys some guidelines: ✦I don't want you befriending her. ✦I don't want you offering to play tour guide. ✦I don't want you dating her. ✦Be civil. Be gentlemen. ✦ Leave her alone. Are we clear? Sounds easy enough but for a bunch of douchebags that can be challenging. Two douchebags, in particular, have a hard time following these rules. Luckily, the hero isn't a douchebag. He's so focused on graduating and the future he's unsure about taking a risk with a girl who isn't graduating now. I really loved the hero even though there were moments where I felt like Sebastian the Crab from Little Mermaid, "Kiss the girl." The whole premise of this story was fun . . . the big bad scary wrestling coach has a college-age daughter that decides to attend where her father coaches. She grew up across the country with her mother (who divorced her father when she was young). And then we have our hero who was formerly the roommate with a couple wrestling douchebags. He's popular by association and has a good handle on dealing with douchebags. An angry coach/dad, his college daughter, a couple douchebags from the wrestling team, and the nice guy . . . throw them on the college campus and we've got the making for an entertaining story. THE COACHING HOURS is the fourth book in the How to Date Douchebag series. It can be read as a standalone. Lovers of a nice guy falling for the off-limits girl will enjoy this college sports romance. Once the reader starts they won't want to put the book down.

    This is an end to an era. The last of the Douchebags, and I’m already mourning. BUT, the author did them proud. She didn’t close the series with a BANG, instead she gradually allowed me to say goodbye. Throughout the book she gave character development where least expected, she closed supporting character arcs, and infused new maturity and adulthood into my beloved series.

Throughout the book she gave character development where least expected, she closed supporting character arcs, and infused new maturity and adulthood into my beloved series. It was fitting, needed and a wonderful and warmhearted ending to an AMAZING series of books. Reading The Coaching Hours just confirmed what I already knew, I deeply enjoy this author’s writing. Her quick witted dialogues, snappy comebacks, and endearing and personable characters. Her never ending supply of fresh plots, with unique twists, and arcs that could have easily slipped into cliques. The Coaching Hours was everything a New Adult read should be. Sweet, sexy, and engaging. The college years are about exciting times, letting go, making new friends, and enjoying yourself. And Sara Ney excels more than any other authors by writing novels that convey all of that. Light hearted, fun and sexy. From the very beginning I knew this: THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY. Which made me curious but also interestingly enough sad. I loved my Douchebags. But like I said The Coaching Hours was the ending of an amazing series, and it concluded with a story that was very unlike the others. Both main characters were hands down incredibly likable. Either as best friend or boyfriend, they topped the charts of genuine and lovable. I adored their interactions, his way of taking care of her, and her inner strength to do what she believed was right. Sara Ney, delivered a solid novel. A story that engaged, was thoughtful and fun to read. Quick and easy, exactly what I wanted – except sans Douchebags. If you love college romances, with a sweet and swoony hero, a strong and feisty heroine, and a supporting cast that surprised the hell out of me – this book is for you. The author’s signature style guarantees a captivating read and leaves you wanting more. Fortunately more is coming – she is already writing her JOCK ROW series, same college more jocks – and my heart is jubilating. I hope some of those jocks show some signature Sara Ney douchebag qualities. ♡ ___________________________________ Find more reviews and book recommendations on my blog. Find me on Bookstagram.

Their late night TV watching and back massages turns into more and they start having sex. It was kind of slow burn romance. (view spoiler)[ Elliot has future plans. So he leaves for grad school, Anabelle gets a shocking news that she is PREGNANT with Elliot's baby. But what the dumb chick does? She doesn't tell Elliot right away. And the most stupid thing she does. She starts spending time with REX. Yes, the same guy who put a bet on her. After Elliot comes to know about the pregnancy, he decides to stay with her. But Anabelle somehow convinces him to complete grad school as it is best for their baby. When he goes, she keeps spending time with Rex. LOL. They even Kiss. And she Likes it. Even in her letters to Elliot she praises Rex. I was actually confused who is the hero of the story. (hide spoiler)] This book was just okay. Elliot was kinda cute nerdy guy. I didn't like him much after the second half. And Anabelle was useless. I didn't like her at all. When her dad tells her that Zeke is dating a girl with stutter, her reaction.. “That guy is dating a girl with a speech impediment?” Yes, you dumb girl!!!!

    4 “Not a Douche” Stars This was so sweet. I had a smile on my face almost all the way through. The Coaching Hours gave a hero and heroine who made me smile and giggle. I love how Ms. Ney throws you off the scent at the beginning and always surprises me in some way. Not only did this story give me a really sweet love story, it also created a secondary character that I (surprisingly) really liked too. I voluntarily read an ARC. A is for Alpha B is for Books

    I've had the pleasure of reading every one of Sara Ney's How to Date a Douchebag books and The Coaching Hours is by far my favorite. Roommates to lovers. Slightly forbidden romance. Unexpected twist. And a sweet, yet hot alpha male. This book has it all! Once again Sara swept me away with her witty banter and punchy writing. Don't miss out on the conclusion of this series, you're going to LOVE IT!!!!!

Don’t hate me, but I kind of wish we got the Douchebag come good storyline. For the first half of the book, I thought I’d be trying to come up with a term for a female douche. Douchepurse? Douchehandbag? Doucheclutch? I struggled with Anabelle, her choices and her (supposed) burdens. She was just a little too immature and self-absorbed. I’ve come to appreciate the heroine’s in the Douchebag series for their intelligence, independence and positive attitudes. I just found Anabelle a little lacking. A predictable storyline that was exacerbated by bad choices, immaturity and selfishness, left me sighing. I had such high hopes for the conclusion to this series. With the tease that the hero wasn’t going to be a douchebag, I was looking forward to a storyline where intelligence and maturity stole the day. To be honest, I think we were lied to. I’m pretty sure there was a douchebag or two lurking in The Coaching Hours. I’m not going to go too far into the storyline because I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say that I did finish with a smile on my face. That closing scene with Rex…CRACKED ME UP!!

I don't care how many more books Sara writes in this series, I'll buy and read every single one. FYI...this one deviates just a bit from the douchebag motif. "There are no douchebags in this novel." The main characters are both excellent. Annabelle is a cool chick and Elliott is the absolute best. I fell so hard for him at the beginning. He's the type of man every woman wants! He's the best ever! Such and amazing, caring, friend and lover. The secondary storyline and redemption, of sorts, at the end was worth the price of admission...a real treat. Here's what I loved: The writing! As with all the books in the series, it's funny and quirly. Although not as over the top as the previous book, but really great execution. The male lead is #Bae (see above mushy description). The chapter quotes had my rolling on the floor! Some were absolutley hilarious. That's one of the features that's made the series a must read for me. The storyline and trope are my faves! I loved the mini twist and was downright over the moon! Sare Ney or not, I'm always down with that. I said all that to say, buy this book. You'll love it. Recommended!

The Good There are certain expectations when you start to read this story. Expectations that come from reading ALOT of romance novels. I really appreciated that Ms. Ney did not stick to the expected, and those twists really worked for me. I absolutely loved the hero and heroine. Their relationships builds in a fairly believable fashion and you get a chance to get emotionally invested right alongside them. I was super impressed that this is a new adult romance that has a realistic way of dealing with that transition phase of your life, when so much of you is still in college but your post-college life is coming up sooner than you ever expected. There is a surprise obstacle that is handled responsibly and maturely. And last but not least, the one d-bag who has grown on me, like a fungus, has a redemption arc of sorts and I’m digging it. If he’s ever getting his own book, he needed to grow up and I like that this shows that growth. The Bad Nothing really. If you’re looking for flashy or big dramatic moments there are none, but I was ok with it. Everything in Between This does work as a standalone but there are several references to the earlier books, so if you hate reading out of order, that may bother a reader. It just made me want to re-read The Learning Hours and finally read the first two books, which are just sitting on my Mountain. So many books, not enough time. 4.75 stars I really really enjoyed this entry in the series. So far, the two heroes I’ve read about have been the sweethearts who just hang out with d-bags, and that’s just fine with me. Entertaining, well written with plenty of sexy and heartfelt moments, I have been mighty impressed with this series. Definitely recommend to those who like new adult romances. **ARC provided by author via InkslingerPR for review** For more reviews, visit

But her dad is super protective and trying to have a college life with your dad there is super hard. So moving out of her dad place was a must. After some things happen she got close to the hero and they had a great relationship.I luvd how they were together it was so cute. They really did suit each other. This story was really good I would highly recommend it. The author alway creates great stories and even better characters you can't help but fall in luv with them and Anabelle and the hero in this book were just great. I luvd every bit of this. I m still hoping for more of this series but whatever the authors does I know I 'll enjoy it.

Sara Ney’s Douchebags have hit the spot every time with their brusqueness and lovability. It’s a bittersweet end to a series that has been a source of great entertainment throughout its entirety. As eager as I was for this latest instalment, I really am sad to see it go.

    “Those douchebags need to learn a lesson. And I’m just the girl to teach them.” I got into this series a little late. Shame on me. Yes, I know! But once I started I was like where has this Sara Ney been all my life? She writes in an uncanny way that makes me feel like she’s writing specifically TO me and FOR me.

Yes, her writing is freaking hilarious and emotional and sexy, but there’s just something about it that makes me feel it down to my soul. The characters are ALWAYS INCREDIBLE! The storylines are relevant and absolutely intoxicating. It’s the most fun I’ve had reading a New Adult Series in well…FOREVER! In her blurbs for this series, Sara is always a little secretive on who the hero/heroine will be and then when you finally get your chance at cracking that baby open, you sigh with relief and absolute JOY on who it ends up being! And I experienced that same exact feeling when I cracked open the series finale - THE COACHING HOURS! Names aren’t important. All you need to know is that the heroine is a kick ass chick who says what’s on her mind and is never sorry for it. Our hero is a breath of fresh air…sometimes frustrating as hell, but he’s also a character that no matter how much you want to hit him upside the head, you still will fall HARD for him. I can’t wait to read the reactions when the readers find out who it is! I’m extremely sad to say goodbye to this series and these characters. They’ve become somewhat of a family to me and I will never forget a single one of them. You can have your favorite, I know I have mine, but in the end, each and every one of these books has touched my heart and my young soul. I don’t read a lot of College Romance/New Adult Romances, but when I do, I put all my trust into the talents of Miss Sara Ney! She never disappoints and I can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve. Fans of this series will absolutely MELT! Newbies of this series will become ADDICTED! Either way, everyone WINS! Happy Reading! XOXO

There’s no wrestler in this story, but the heroine is the coach’s daughter, Annabelle. I will say that I really liked her in the beginning and for most of the story. The hero, what can I say? I liked him, until I didn’t. He was perfect until 70%. And then he left, and kept leaving, and IMO he became a douchebag himself and he was so ridiculously selfish. And Annabelle became weak, and a doormat and a shadow of who she was in the beginning. I’m not even going to go into the cliche plot twist at the end. But when the hero came back, he got an easy pass, he did not grovel enough and was quickly forgiven and I JUST CANNOT BUY IT! To the point where I actually wanted her to end up with someone else, someone that actually cared and was there for her. That’s how mad and disappointed was. Anyway. I love Sara and her books, and I will definitely keep reading them. But this one completely missed the mark for me. Rating it 3 stars because of the audiobook.

She’s newly moved to Iowa to be closer to her dad, and though he tells his boys that they are to keep their hands off his baby girl, she instantly becomes a target of douchebags looking to score. When Anabelle learns that she is the at the centre of a cruel bet, humiliated and devastated, it’s nice guy Elliot that comes to her rescue on more than one occasion. And when Anabelle discovers that he has a spare room in his off-campus housing, she jumps at the chance to move out from her Dad’s smothering but well-intentioned love, and fully embrace the college life. Nice guy, Elliot, will be known to fans of the series. As Oz and Zeke’s old roommate, he is the non-jock, non-douche of the series, and I loved getting to know the more serious, understated member of the crew. He’s an absolute sweetheart! Kind and caring, I loved watching him be there for Anabelle. Elliot is big and sexy and strong and sweet. Polite. Funny As a male specimen, Elliot is highly underrated by the female population of Iowa, and for that, I am eternally grateful. The friendship that develops between them is gorgeous. It’s easy and fun, and oh-so-natural, though with undertones of attraction it’s clear from the very beginning where it’s all going to go. What if I walk in on her naked while she’s showering and she thinks I’m a pervert? What if I accidentally leave the door open while I’m taking a piss and she sees my junk? What if she decides to walk around the house with no pants on and I have to see her ass cheeks? What if I like it? The chemistry between Anabelle and Elliot is fantastic. There is flirting and teasing, but it’s a bit of a slow burn as they figure it all out, and it was so much fun, with a sense of delicious anticipation, to watch things begin to change for them. What was that look? Is she flirting? Just being nice? Jesus, I can’t tell. I need a fucking manual. And when all of that pent-up sexual tension is released… holy hotness! It seems to be a match made in heaven! Except that real life has different plans for them. There are twists and turns, difficult choices, struggles and heartache and some surprising character development, and I loved how unexpected it all was. I thought it was really cleverly done, and I really liked the way it all played out. While, for me, this book didn’t have the intensity of the previous relationships in the series, it was still a great read, and I was rooting for Anabelle and Elliot from the very beginning. There is a tie-in to the earlier books, with glimpses of Zeke and Rhett, and some oh-so-hilarious text messaging between Elliot and Oz, but this book can easily standalone. And as always, those chapter headings are a real treat! I really enjoyed this one! 3.5 stars. An Advanced Review Copy was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Yet another solid one from Sara Ney. I didn´t like it as much as I did the other three in the series, but still a good one. It might have been liking the humor factor the others had, I found them a bit more fun. But still a good book.

There was some back and forth with different boys, ones totally unworthy of lovely Ana-banana, and then she hit the jackpot. Elliot was amazing. Not DOUCHY at all. He and Anabelle hit it off right away and the rest is history as they say...or was it? This book was a little choppy. Not going to lie. I loved the characters, even Rex, but I felt a bit jostled and it was almost as if Ney had a few ideas for this book and mixed them all together. Did it work out for me in the end? Yes. Was it her best? No. We’re these my two favourite mains? Yes! Was there something missing that I cannot pinpoint? Yes. Unfortunately, yes. I did get pretty invested in the story because I was able to connect with Ana on a personal level. However, I still fee like these two young kids rushed into life too quickly-but I guess that’s how the story goes sometimes. Ney did do a fabulous job getting me emotionally attached. She pulls on the readers heartstrings and she had the moves to back it up! I’m glad the series is over, and happy it ended on the note it did. I feel satisfied with the outcome and had a fun time reading How To Date A Douchebag, THE COACHING HOURS. I must add, my absolute favourite parts of this book were the hilarious and totally inappropriate chapter previews. Just the BEST.

It seemed like neither of the characters had any chemistry- if they did, it wasn't noticeable to me as a reader- and there really wasn't anything interesting about the characters. The backstory into their lives was severely lacking, the buildup to their romance seemed rushed, and the surprise twist towards the end wasn't all that surprising at all. Now, I am not saying all this to rip the book apart because I really love the author and her work in general, I just wasn't feeling this book enough and I had a hard time understanding why I continued it when I didn't care for it from the get-go. One of the things that I LOVED about this book was the chapter titles. I don't know where the author got them but whenever I stumbled upon a new chapter I had the severe giggles. They were so damn funny. Another thing I liked but wished there was more of, was the college lifestyle taking place in this book. When I read NA, college romances I enjoy seeing these characters come to life in new environments and while we did get this a little bit, it wasn't the strongest I think that it could have been. The exception would be the part when Anabelle got super drunk at a party on jock row. That was HILARIOUS and made me feel like I was part of the college scene. With that, this is the 4th and final book in the How to Date a Douchebag series but can stand alone completely. I haven't read any of the previous books and had no problems following along with this one.
