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 reciprakate 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.

How To Date A Douchebag

 

The Learning Hours

(How to Date a Douchebag #3)

By Sara Ney

 

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Geez, my headline is corny but it really does explain The Learning Hours. Outside beauty can hide an ugly inside and inside beauty can be hidden by an ugly outside. We all have different tastes that attract us to our desired partners. I myself, don’t particularly find long hair on guys attractive. I’m not a huge fan of fake tans, fat necks (the overly muscled kind), or dyed hair either, but each to their own.

I admit that The Learning Hours threw me for a loop. As the story unfolded I was gobsmacked to find that the story didn’t flow as I expected. Surprisingly, I think it was better than what I had pre-planned my brain to expect.

Sidetrack…do you do that? You know, guess what’s going to happen before you even start? Think you know how it shouldbe written? I love it when I’m surprised. Oh sure, a little part of me will analyse whether my storyline was better than the authors. Most times the authors get it right…which is why they’re earning the big bucks. 😉

I’m not going to go into my usual ramblings because I really believe that this story needs to be experienced without knowing all the details. I will say this though, SARA NEYWRITES SOME OF THE MOST INFURIATING CHARACTERS!!! I wanted to reach into the book, pull a few characters out by their ears and give them a good talking to. Tears, I tell you. I was a blubbering mess at times. How does Sara Ney manage to take me from hate to love? It’s frustrating, to be honest. I want to hate them for a bit longer. I can’t draw out the hate though because I have to read the book quickly to find out what’s happening next.

Oh, how readers must suffer when they find an author to love (hand to my forehead, in a woe is me, stance).

Remarkably, I have managed to write a fairly short review (pat myself on the back). Readers who have enjoyed the How to Date a Douchebag series will be surprised where this one goes. Stick with it because it’s bloody brilliant. Readers will be frustrated, angry, upset, giddy, overjoyed and content. The Learning Hours has all the gut punches you would expect, mixed with some sweet, soppy and loving moments.

I definitely recommend The Learning Hours and the How to Date a Douchebag series. Pretty please Sara Ney, may I have some more…

  1. I loved this book so much!! Like you said the twist was a total surprise – didn’t see it coming. Zeke my #1 Douchebag has now competition.:D And OMG I can’t wait for her new series. She needs to write faster, I’m in a total book slump because of her.

    • I only just started reading Sara Ney but I’m really enjoying her style of writing. I didn’t even know she has a new series coming. I’ll have to keep an eye out for it. 😀
