Publisher's Summary

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.

Wrong on both counts.

Assholes always come out of the woodwork when the stakes are high.

A bet is placed, and I'm on the table. After one humiliating night and too much alcohol, I find the last nice guy on campus. And when he offers to rent me his spare bedroom, I go all in. It's time for the nice guy to finish first.

Midnight chats and spilling my problems turn to lingering touches. Lingering touches turn to more.

And the ultimate good guy has the potential do more damage than any douchebags ever could.

Amazing til the end

I really did love this book until the last bit of it. The whole Rex/Elliot mess just didn’t do it for me. Aside from that, I loved it. I just don’t like Rex and he aggravates me.

Love this Series!!!

Another great installment in the How to Date a Douchebag series from Sara Ney.
We were introduced to Elliott in Sebastian’s book and I loved him since.
Now that Oz is gone and Elliott has a spare room, he decides to rent it out to none other than the Wrestling Coaches daughter Anabelle.

As time goes on, the two become close but Elliott can’t get involved because he’s leaving at the end of the semester.
I loved the easy relationship between the characters and the instant connection.
I also loved the unexpected surprise that threw everyone’s plans upside down.
I was even happier to see Rex Gunderson redeem himself. Hopefully this means we will be getting his book next. I’ve always liked Rex even when he was a Douchebag but he totally grows up in this book.

Great narration by Erin Mallon and Josh Goodman. These two are amazing together and pull you right into the story.

Loved it!!

Douchebags everywhere!!!

Sara Ney is without a doubt an accomplished douchebag and a strong feisty chick all in that innocent looking package. I have an absolute blast with each one of these books.

These are fun, rowdy, and so romantic. I can honestly say that she gets me everytime. I sigh at the romantic stuff and cringe when its bound to go bad. I ache at the possibility of no HEA. I freaking squeal at the endings though and The Coaching hours really put me through the wringer.

With no shame, the author stabs you in the soft spots right away. Clinches your heart at the first sign of trouble and makes sure you are constantly reflecting on said betrayal.

In short, she keeps you on your toes and occasionally steps on them too.

Loved every minute of this story!

As you can tell by my previous reviews, I have absolutely loved the How to Date a Douchebag series and truly am sad to see it ending. Though officially it ended a while ago, this was the end for me. The Couching Hours by Sara Ney was the perfect ending that had me laughing, swooning, and frustrated and I loved every minute of it!

Annabelle is the coach’s daughter. She wants to be closer to her dad and take advantage of his tuition discount. She was looking forward to the change and getting started. But things are not as easy as she thought it would be. Instead she finds herself in the middle of a ridiculous bet, a few bad choices and meeting one nice guy that changes everything.

This is how Annabelle finds hew new roommate. Choices are made, some amazing and others, not so much. I must say this was probably, at least for me, the most frustrating in the series. We had the same banter we love, amazing chemistry, and another great story. The narrators were amazing and brought the story to life for me time and time again. If you have not met the douchebag yet, seriously, what are you waiting for!

4.5 stars. Happy reading!

How to Date a Nice Guy

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Has Sara Ney been reading Mariana Zapata? This was worth a credit.

Love this book!

So glad Elliot gets a chance in this book. He is so nice and so not a Douchebag! I am a little disappointed that Oz and Zeke don't make much of an appearance in this book but still a good listen. I love Muffy Newtown and her male voices are so awesome!

This series can't be over!

I am having trouble coming to terms with the fact that this series is over. There are other stories, surely! I love everything about this series, but mostly the humor and chapter headers.

Another great one from Sara Ney

I love everything about Sara Ney's Douche Bag Series even though you find characters from the other series in each book she does a great job creating the new character stories. Annabelle and Elliot have a great story, I think everyone will enjoy their friends to lovers. I even liked Rex Gunderson in this book he starts out as a douchbag but turns into a nice guy. At one point I was even routing for him.

Basically if you are a fan of Sara Ney's other Douchebag books you'll be a fan of this one as well. And of course with Muffy Newtown narrating you can't go wrong. She's paired nicely with Josh Goodman.

I loved Annabelle and Elliot's story

I have to admit, I fell so hard for the characters in Sara Ney's The Coaching Hours. It is the fourth book in How to Date a Douchebag series and with each book I read in this stand alone series, I like it even more. Sara has an amazing ability to pull you in from the start and make you have an instant connection to her characters. I laughed out loud and had to wipe away tears all while experiencing this fantastic story. Annabell and Elliot were amazing characters and I never wanted their story to end.

The premise was set. Coach's daughter has transferred to Iowa and he has warned everyone to stay clear of her. Most listen, well, except for two that make a bet where she is the prize. When she hears of their ridiculous bet, she is anything but okay. She ends up going out for a night on the town and the night proves to be either the worst or best mistake of her life, depending on how you look at it.

I devoured this story and couldn't get enough of it. Sarah Ney even made me like Gunderson, a man who has proven time and again what and insensitive jerk he could be. I certainly hope he gets a story of his own in the future.

PS - The audio version of this story is fantastic. Muffy Newton and Josh Goodman bring Sarah's work to life. I would highly recommend either narrator for nearly anything in the future!
