Publisher's Summary

He's not a douchebag; but that doesn't stop his friends from turning him into one.

My friends want me to get laid.

So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who's going to break our roommate's cherry?

Him: Socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: Must have a pulse. He will reciprocate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551.

The morons can't even spell. And the texts I've been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I'm not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.

This isn't the kind of attention I want.

One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can't bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

However, after seeing her in person, I know she's not the girl for me. But my friends won't let up - they just don't get it. Douchebags or not, there's one thing they'll never understand: Girls don't want me.

Especially her.

Unicorn Boyfriend

I have really enjoyed Sara Ney's Douchebag series, but none as much as The Learning Hours. I absolutely fell in love with Rhett and couldn't get enough of this adorably awkward sweetheart! This is book 3 in the interconnected series, but can be read/listened to as a standalone.

I loved how the tables were turned this time around, pairing an inexperienced hero with a more seasoned heroine. Rhett was the perfect southern gentleman, but struggled with his confidence in social situations. My heart hurt for him as he tried to figure out the right thing to say and do, without looking like a complete idiot. There were plenty of funny times as Rhett began to explore this other side of college/life thanks to his douchebag roommates and wrestling teammates. I loved getting a cameo here and there of our heroes from books 1 and 2, Oz and Zeke, as well.

Laurel started out as the typical mean girl, but quickly learned and showed that appearances can be deceiving. Yes, things started out under unconventional circumstances, but I loved watching the slow burn chemistry between these two. Rhett's reluctance to speak freely about what he wanted, only made his attempts in French all the more swoony and sexy. It was so very refreshing and wonderful to see the good guy remain true to himself and prevail.

Thanks to the beauty of whispersync, I was able to switch easily between the audiobook and ebook and it really enriched the experience. Josh Goodman really shined as the lovable Rhett and Muffy Newton was the perfect sassy Laurel. Being able to hear all of the confusion, excitement, wonder, and love made me fall even harder for these two. Although my heart is happy and I have a goofy grin on my face thanks to the epilogue, I would love a novella or look into the future for all the couples we've met in this series. This was definitely my favorite of the 3 books though and Rhett truly lived up to his Unicorn Boyfriend status.

5 How to Date a Douchebag Stars

Rhett - Laurel

I loved this book because it was flipped. The douchebag could have been the girl really and it was nice to see a man be so clueless and sweet and what a charmer! I am a sucker for these books.

Rhett is a transfer student who is kinda lost, his team mates are not making it easy and boy do they prank the poor fella.

But if not for the pranks he never would have meet Laurel. I think I like that she was just as taken aback by her feeling’s for Rhett but she embraces it and I love that she just fell for who he was.

Sigh fantastic narration.. I neeeeeeeeeeed more books like this please.

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

Flove Rhett!

This has become my favorite of the Douchebag series. Rhett is unavoidably lovable and his cluelessness makes him so much more so. His cute and clumsy (non) pursuit of the feisty red haired heroine makes anyone and everyone relate to the struggles of dating even if you are long past and out of the staring scene. The narration is spot on, and breathes life into these characters in a way that sucks you in. This entire series is epic for the simple fact that sometimes even douchebags are lovable to someone. Buy this book! You won't be disappointed.

Love this series

I am a huge fan of Muffy Newtown and Josh Goodman as narrators so gave this series a shot and was hooked in the first minute of the first book. Bravo Sara Ney! All three books in this series were funny, sweet, oh so sexy (hot!) and I just loved from beginning to end. I hope this isn't the end of the series.

It just keeps getting better and better!

I am just loving this series of college romances and this one is just wonderful! The premise of this story is that the hero is a transfer student on the wrestling team, recruited by the coach from a college in Louisiana. His teammates don't exactly give him a warm welcome, hazing him repeatedly and causing him embarrassment and costing him money. He's actually not the most handsome guy, though he's got a perfect body. But some things about Rhett: he's a real nice guy, treats women with respect and he's only had sex once, he's really kind of shy with low self esteem around women. The heroine, Laurel, is a knockout gorgeous redhead who never has trouble getting a date, but all she feels is used by the guys she has dated. Her cousin is a trouble magnet and gets her involved in one of the hazings, but she soon feels sorry for her behavior and starts to fall slowly for Rhett. Convincing him that she really likes him is her biggest hurdle, getting him to believe he's what she wants is her mission. I adored the banter, wanted to smack his crappy teammates around and cheered both Rhett and Laurel on as they proved that it doesn't matter what's on the outside that counts! I think this is my favorite of the three books so far, though I love them all. Narration was just excellent. This author is now on my one-click list.

Best in the series

What made the experience of listening to How to Date a Douchebag the most enjoyable?

The story was thoroughly enjoyable and the narrators were great.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed Book 1, but found the female lead in Book 2 to be lacking. Book 3 (this one) had it all. All of the characters were great, and the story was engaging and delightful.

This is the audio that got me hooked on audios!!

Would you listen to How to Date a Douchebag again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this again and I have...twice because I fell in love with the narrator's that took this to a whole notha level. They just made it so much better.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Date a Douchebag?

The most memorable were all the French that was being spoken in this. It brought back French class in school. My fave was where the hero and heroine almost get caught by his parents in bed together.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is where he finds out she's catfished him and pretended to be her cousin. It's unusual there's a female character who has no redeemable qualities in the beginning. Usually, it's the guy who's like that.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

At the beginning when Rhett gets hazed by his teammates and gets stuck with the bill. It broke my heart that they did that to him.

Any additional comments?

If there are any books that you listen to it needs to be this series. Muffy Newtown and Josh Goodman did an awesome job narrating. Josh especially did the French sayings and language justice.

A rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.75

I loved this installment of the douchebag series. I especially love that the hero isn't a douchebag, although there were a few moments when the heroine was. But I think what really made this story for me was just how unlikely a couple these two are.

Rhett is new to this school and regretting his choice to transfer from Louisiana. Although he's an incredible wrestler, he's getting mercilessly hazed by the rest of the team. Gah...my heart broke for the crap this guy had to deal with over and over again. He handles it better than most people would, but he's sad...and that's hard to read. But one of the hazing pranks goes over the top which should be unforgivable, but ultimately it brings Laurel into his realm, where she can see what an amazing guy he is...even if his exterior is a little more homely than she's normally drawn to.

I loved how hard Laurel fell for Rhett when she fell, but again...my heart hurt with just how little Rhett trusts that. She's gorgeous...all guys want to date her. So in his eyes, he simply can't see how she'd be interested in him, no matter how much she continually shows him that she is interested.

This romance is a slow build, just because Rhett is so clueless. He has almost zero experience with women and he doesn't see the reality of the world and the women around him.

I loved this story. There were so many truly sweet, romantic moments in it. It really did melt my heart. I loved Rhett and I think this is my favorite book in the series so far. And as always, these two narrators knocked it out of the ballpark with their narration. Even Rhett's southern accent was perfect, not too overdone like a lot of narrators do with a twang. LOVED IT!

Love the story, narration was good enough

I loved Rhett and Laural's story! I thought it was cute and cringey in the best possible way but also hot! I thought the narration was really well done for Rhett's character although the french speaking parts weren't my favourite. I thought the narrator for Laural could have been better as I thought her voice was annoying at times. I loved the actual book itself, it was different and fun! I HATED Rhetts roomates like a lot but they redeemed themselves a little bit. I'm definetly going to go back and read the first to books but I dont think it will be on audiable.

Rhett is so sweet, not a douche at all

AWWW, I LOVED RHETT, I just wanted to cuddle the awkward southern boy half the time, pat him on the head and take him home he was so innocent and cute.

Rhett isn't a douchebag at all, I do love a douchebag though the bigger the a-hole the better but Rhett is so sweet, he's also insecure but that may have something to do with being told he's not great looking all the time.

Rhett is a southern sweet talking none douchebag.

Not my favorite book to date but it was fun, I really am loving this series and I enjoyed the journey to Rhett finding love.

Rhett is the new transfer, hes away from home and wrestling for the college team, he's the new guy so the other douchebags aptly name him "new guy", Yeh! there that inventive lol

Rhett's team mates place posters all over campus saying "Get Rhett laid" which also includes his photo and phone number. Rhett is the brunt of a few jokes throughout but this latest joke has his phone constantly beeoing with nude pictures blowing up his phone.

Laurel is a good looking girl, beautiful even with her bright read hair, big boobs, gorgeous figure the type of girl the football team drool over, she's a wet dream and I would also say she's also vain. When Laurel is dared by her cousin to text Rhett, from all the hundreds of texts he has received laurels stand out, she's persistent, curious about Rhett in a none attraction kind of way and a series of conversations begin between them.

Laurel knows what Rhett looks like and even states he's not good looking but you could say his body and personality grows on her and even his rugged looks.

When laurel and Rhett meet a friendship develops and it's laurel who actually feels more for him, Rhett just doesn't let himself look past friend-zone because he thinks he is out of her league.

A slow-burn romance that I really enjoyed Rhett's character made this book for me, laurel I wasn't to smitten on.

The learning hours is a fun read with humour, fan me down hot scenes, told in dual pov's and leads to a hea.

Rhett is bullied throughout this, yes there practical jokes fromt he other team mates ut it's bullying all the same. I didn't feel there was closure on this, the team accepting him Rhett making friends, I would of liked closure on this subject.

looking forward to whatever Sara Ney delivers next.

I listened this on audio and the narration is brilliant, they really brought the characters to life. i would definitely read more books from these narrators.
