OMG!! I have never read a Sara Ney book and I now I will be smacking myself silly because HOW TO DATE A DOUCHEBAG: The Learning Hours, has to be one of the best romantic comedy feel good reads I have had the pleasure of listening to all year.
This story centers on the unlikeliest of romantic fellas, Rhett and his adorable yet frustrating ability to realize that the girl of his dreams, Laurel could ever want him. We get to understand that he is not traditionally handsome, but he is a good guy and his wrestling team and roommates are hell bent on turning him into a douchebag so that he can get laid. They are always playing pranks on him so his willingness to comply is far fetched until the most beautiful girl he has laid eyes on begins to pay him some attention and he thinks it’s some kind of joke. Comedic moments ensue as this unlikely duo begin to form a smoldering romance that is sweet and slow and full of the best dirty French talking to make you quiver.
What an adorably cute and smexy read. The kind of book that makes your breath hitch in breathless anticipation while your smiling over it’s witty banter and slow burning romance. An A+ in my romance report card.
Since this is an audiobook review let me tell you that the narrator’s are perfect at keeping me completely enthralled with this book. Josh Goodman (Rhett) could melt your panties off with his French diction and Muffy Newtown (Lauren) had the perfect about of spark and moxy to have you cheering her on. A highly recommend listening to this series just for all French parts alone.
“Je ne te veux pas dans l’ autre chambre,” I repeat. “Restez avec moi.” Stay with me. Her breasts brush my chest, the pad of her index finger tracing the contour of my upper lip. “You have a beautiful mouth.” “Toi aussi.” So do you. I feel my neck bow. Head bent down. Shoulders sag, body relaxed. “Je te veux plus que n’importe quoi que j’avais voulu dans ma vie.” I want you more than anything I’ve wanted in my entire fucking life.”Sara Ney How To Date A Douchebag: The Learning Hours
HOW TO DATE A DOUCHEBAG by Sara New
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.
