Sare Ney or not, I'm always down with that. Can Elliot easily forget the woman who has somehow managed to claim a piece of his heart? They are assholes who managed to read and write well enough to trick women into thinking they are kind, sensitive and evolved. Will she be able to move on from Elliot? Eventually, I developed a defense reflex against Basic Douchebags and began teetering more towards the Freaks and Weirdos end of the Dbag spectrum, and yet the memories of the Basic Douchebag stayed with me forever. They're seemingly shy but overly confident. Sure, outsiders find this friendly. I wanted more time with them as an actual couple and making things work! Dear God, I hope that this is a given.
Here's what I loved: The writing! The Coaching Hours was another sweet,funny and sexy story! 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. A bet is placed, and I'm on the table. But what it did have was a swoony, slow burn friend to lovers story that was full of sizzle and smiles. I can't believe I'm saying this now, but I'm kind of interested to read about him. He's past the age of 28, has been out of school for years, and yet he can't afford to buy you a nice dinner.
Women that are attracted to bad boy types often go back to the same one - or find another… again and again. He's popular by association and has a good handle on dealing with douchebags. That we only got to see Anabelle's point of view from that moment on until the end didn't help either to help me understand his thought process.

This story was cute and swoony, and definitely hit the spot just right.
But once I started I was like where has this Sara Ney been all my life? It seems to be a match made in heaven! But remember, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. The bartender sure loves him, but you're not quite sure if you do. I really appreciated the bonus injections of fun from some old favourites, and wonder if there may ever be an opportunity to explore that further at some point. All he hears is something he's heard before. It was kind of slow burn romance. From the moment they first met both Elliot and Ana secretly felt an attraction.
Confident, sassy women still attract d-bags, but the difference is that they know how to tell them to get lost. However, I respect her too much to be that slimy and filthy little boy who craves sex I am also not that kind of guy in general. This is my first full length novel by Sara Ney. How to Date a Douchebag is over. 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. It made dealing with all the previous dating crap worth it to find him.
Um, call them a whore, spit at them, tell them they can't hang out with any guys but you, tell them they can't have any friends, call them every 5 minutes, demand sex, tell them that if they don't give you head they'll tell everyone how much of a whore they are, demand nude photos, stalking?

It was one of the best years of my life. Bask in the love and respect of a non-douchebag— It feels good, right? The storyline and trope are my faves! This sweet friends-to-lovers romance had everythin I'm so sad. 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. This whole series was a pleasant surprise, and it's a bittersweet feeling to let it go. 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. Reading The Coaching Hours just c This is an end to an era.
He doesn't call after you sleep together. A story that engaged, was thoughtful and fun to read. I think she has a great character growth in this book once the story comes to the plot twist. Overall Pace of Story: Slow at first, but then it got better. Read on for true encounters so shocking, you might feel compelled to take a shower…in bleach. But it's not like all a guy has to do is be an asshole and then suddenly he will attract droves of women. Letting you take control telling the story of it.

Sara Ney, delivered a solid novel. He and Anabelle hit it off right away and the rest is history as they say. I'm always excited to read each one of them! 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. Some girl, pretty as she is, took Elliot St.
Since reading those book, I got to know Elliot as the non-douchebag, non-jock friend; reliable, studious, and good. 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. The chemistry between Anabelle and Elliot is fantastic. They've got style and swagger, but they're always a little insecure. At some point, he meets that one girl who can play his game, but freaks out at the prospect of a challenge and quickly reverts back to his emotional slacker self.
