Publisher's Summary

Crude. Arrogant. A--hole.

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.

Smart. Classy. Conservative.

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....

Every douchebag has his weakness.

He wants to be friends. He wants to spend time with her. He wants to drive her crazy.

He wants...her.

Great book

I loved this book but the female narrator is horrible. She has ruined every book I’ve listened to with her. I loved the male narrator. He was awesome.

Profanely funny!!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this audiobook, but I was often startled into laughing aloud. This irreverent, hilarious, yet somehow sweet college romance was a real delight to listen to. The hero has a potty mouth, but in a funny way. The heroine is a prim, scholarly and inexperienced girl who is at times wickedly funny too. He takes a dare from his buddies and she falls in with it, which sets his interest on her. He's kind of a womanizer, but something about her keeps drawing him to her. I loved the story, the characters and narration was well done.

Fantastic Audio!! Definitely a Page Turner!!

A MUST READ!!!
My favorite type of story is a college romance with a combination of opposites attract, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, and sexy steaminess!!!
Sara Ney NAILED it!!!!
She gave it all in this book!
So funny and flirty.
So Sexy and Addictive!!!
An amazing story of the journey two people take when falling in love.
Sebastian and Jamison are the cutest couple. They banter endlessly and their connection is explosive.
Their chemistry was a slow build that literally vibrated until it combusted!!
I loved that slow agonizing burn. It was beautiful.
Absolutely Beautiful.
The writing is flawless. The author sucks you into this story and has you falling head over heels for the characters.
I could put it down.
I laughed and swooned!
And when they finally came together after their agonizing build up, it was TOTALLY worth the wait. Sara blew me away with the intensity of it!!


I listened to this on audio!
So so good!!!!!!
Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown were FANTASTIC!!
They were so passionate and on point with the characters and everything just came together so perfectly.
I'm on a high right now from this amazing read.

I'm telling you, you need this book in your life!!

Oz come to life.

I have been waiting for this audible for what feels like forever, okay it’s probably only been a month. But I am thrilled that I can listen to these dbags any time I want now. The story is fantastic and the narrators really brought these characters to life. I will be listening to this one over and over.

3.5 The Studying Hours Stars

I enjoyed this book but I didn’t love it.
Oz was the douchebag I figured him to be, but in a different way. When a “bet” was put into place I thought oh no not like other books. But this wasn’t like that and it was refreshing.

I will say even though sex was implied and talked about the actually act doesn’t happen for a LONG time. And it worked for this book.

I like Jameson too she had to grow on me, I don’t know if it was her character or what but I wasn’t a fan at the beginning but I grew to like her by the end of the book.

I am a banter girl and I loved the banter in this book. I think that is what saved it for me. And their chemistry was off the hook.

I loved the narration, its Muffy Newtown so that’s a giving I am going to love it. And Josh Goodman was a perfect Oz.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Horrible Narritive, Lacks substance & Extremely crude toward women and sex in general

The narrator or for Jameson doesn’t have a bad voice, it’s just the context in which she speaks in so incredibly annoying. And when it got to the point where they finally date and having “intimate moments’ (one was just on a date in the batting cages), oh wow...it sounded like straight up porn the way she moans all loud and annoying and speaks all out of breath and high pitched. I almost stopped the book altogether. But I was already 70% in, so I finished it and just fast forwarded the “love scenes”. The guy was mediocre but not bad.

There also wasn’t really a climax in the story either. The whole book feels like you’re reading about the beginning of a relationship and romance, and then...that’s it lol it lacks conflict, a plot and overall substance.

It’s also pretty degrading toward women. And I was hesitant to download this, but it had a lot of good reviews so I gave it a go, but if you’re reading this-Pass on it. There’s SO much better for romance or YA romance out there.

I enjoyed this college romance

This kept my attention and I liked both the characters, altho it took me longer to like Oz. Even tho they said their romance shouldn't be about sex, truth is, that's really all we read that they talked about and did.. Later, he mentioned so many things he knew about her, but we never got to read that part so I felt a little like it was sexed up to keep my attention of something. Still, it kept my interest and made me smile several times with the humor. This story is almost zero angst. It's really a 3 1/2 stars for me. I will check out other things by this author, this was well written and had a couple of fun bits I won't spoil.

Loved It!

This story was perfection. Everything was the Best, the writing, characters and the narrators.
It was exciting, sexual, surprising and satisfying.
I laughed a lot, as the writing was so good that there was some fun and funny parts, as well as smokin hot scenes and exciting & romantic parts.
The narrators were excellent. This is one of my all time favorites. I can't wait for the next one by this author and these narrators. I am now a devoted fan!!!

Falling in love with the Douchebags all over again!

I really enjoyed listening to Sara Ney’s first book from her How to Date a Douchebag series. Oz and James’ story was a great read and this time around it was definitely an enjoyable listen!

This was my first dual narration audiobook (as opposed to duet narration) and it took a little getting used to. I actually preferred Josh Goodman’s take on James in comparison to the “manly voice” that Muffy Newton puts on for Oz. And it was that which detracted from the story a bit for me.

In saying that, the storyline itself was a strong as ever in audio!! And I did thoroughly enjoy listening to the book. I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the series.
