Reviews The Coaching Hours (How to Date a Douchebag, #4)

  • Christy
    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 on...

    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. 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 serie...

    4 STARS A heart is racing but I’m not sure if it’s his or mine. I’m not sure whose heart is beating fastest. This final installment in the Douchebag series was the complete antithesis of why I was originally hooked on it. There are no douchebags, no cocky jock hero, no hate lust, no enemies to lovers vibes. 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...

    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}I was in love with him, and I want to point out that sometimes suffering through a love you never had is worse than suffering through one you did. 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 th...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKThis 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...

    ➦For anyone who loves college romances, this series is highly recommended. I really enjoyed this book even though it was a bit different the first three books. Sara Ney just knows how to bring the feels and keep you glued to the pages and that's really one of the most important things, at least for me. I need to stay in the book and, even if I don't completely love the characters or their decisions, I as long as I keep reading - I'm a happy cam...

    The Coaching Hours is my second book by Sara Ney and again I'm in love with it. 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 hu...

    It took me forever to read this book and NOT because it was hard to get through. Quite the opposite really. It was entirely too easy to enjoy, but because I knew this was the last book of the series, I wanted to savor it. 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...

    2.5 StarsOverall 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 h...

    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. It was fitting, needed and a wonderful and warmhearted ending to an AMA...

    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...

    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!!!!!

    The first line in the blurb.THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY(view spoiler)[There IS a douchebag in this story. And that's Anabelle, the heroine!!!!!!!! (hide spoiler)]A bet is placed on who will bang Anabelle. She is the new student. The bet is between Eric and Rex, who harassed Rhett (from previous book). Luckily she gets to know about the bet. She meets Elliot and both becomes friends and roommate. He is basically a nerdy gentleman type of...

    Should have known we’d get here…I honestly started this book horrified. The first person we’re introduced to is an absolute KNOB. But, Sara Ney holds a significant talent for getting me past KNOB status to…I think I love him…with a word or two. So, I settled in and braced for impact.But, it didn’t come. Turns out, I got my heroes mixed up. At first, I’m thinking *Oh cool, we’re going to avoid the colossal mess of Douchebag status ...

    4 “douchebags and jockholes” Stars Man oh man Sara Ney had me reeling at the beginning of this one!With her signature wit and humor, she's penned an entertaining book that will make fans of the series rejoice! I for one, absolutely love this series and want more! 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 ...

    Glad my friend Tianna already wrote a review!I would have gone ballistic, if I needed to review it. Reading it was more than enough.Overall and in a nutshell:
  • Ivy Deluca
    In the interest of keeping this as spoiler-free as possible (as requested), I would like to give my general impressions on the latest (last?) entry in the D-Bag series.The GoodThere 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. The...

    Well, this was a bit disappointing.Also, I want a continuation of that epilogue from Zeke and Violet's pov.••• Jan 04"The last nice guy on campus" as in Elliot? 'Cause yes, please!

    *ARC provided by the author for an honest review*Luv it This series is one of my favourite I 've luvd every one. So when I heard that there was goin to be another I was so happy. I was dying to know who we got next and I was super happy. This review is goin to be spoiler free so you have to wait and see how the hero is but I don't think you will be disappointed. Anabelle is a brilliant character. She is funny sassy and independent. Being the coa...

    ★3 - 3.5 STARS★With The Coaching Hours our Hero is the Douchebag that never really was. He is not an athlete, and in fact by way of maturity, he has a pretty good head on his shoulders. It differs most in style from the previous books but I enjoyed the twist from the expected.It’s best described as a friends to lovers romance with an element of coming of age. I really appreciated the bonus injections of fun from some old favourites, and won...

    “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 ...
  • AJ
    This is a really sweet little read. A gorgeous friends-to-lovers story with all of the wit, humour and heartwarming feels that I have come to expect from this author and this series.Anabelle is a junior in College, and is the daughter of wrestling super-Coach Donnelly. 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 ...
  • Jess
    I’ve been in a HUGE book slump. For what feels like months-but it looks like all I needed was a book about douchebags to cure me. But, in this case, there were no actual douchebags to be had. I’m actually shocked. Completely and utterly shocked. This book didn’t live up to its name and I think that’s a good thing. Elliot and Anabelle are an unlikely duo. Right from the beginning of this book I didn’t see it coming. Didn’t see “them...
  • Carmen Rae
    I am almost at a loss as to what to say here. There's so much I want to just word vomit all out, but I really think to get the most out of this book you need to go into it as clueless as the rest of us.So, I will try explaining my feels without any spoilers. First there's no reason not to read this book, there's no triggers, cheating, ow/om drama, nothing.The writing lived up to the last three books although The Studying Hours is still my all-tim...

    I enjoyed this one so much!There was a little thingy I didn't like near the end, but I can look past it because it isn't horrible.I enjoy roomie stories so much they are so much fun!Elliot is an easy and lovely guy to like and love he is so much fun too! Annabelle is such a sweet and amazing girl who is awesome and so much fun too!I hated Rex and Eric in the previous books as well so that wasn't new, but how dumb can they be?I enjoyed this very m...

    Love this series. This book was enjoyable. Not as good as the other books in this series.. but still a good book!

    Release Date: February 5, 2018 Genre: New Adult. College Romance. I read The Coaching Hours in a day as it's a fairly easy read. However, as I was reading I kept asking myself WHY I was reading it when I didn't feeling anything. 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 seve...
