How to Date a Douchebag Series
The Learning Hours
by Sara Ney
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 pulse. 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.
Sara Ney completely flips the script in The Learning Hours. It’s role-reversal at it’s finest. She takes the typical structure of a romance novel and flips it upside. Well done, Sara! Well done indeed!
Here’s the breakdown:
Rhett Rabideaux is surrounded by douches. Like, seriously annoying douches, folks. His roomates are idiots. His teammates are PIAs. And the women trying to get his attention…forget about it—they’re definitely douches. LMAO Poor Rhett has just transferred from LSU in his home state of Louisiana and has no true friends or family close by and on top of that, as mentioned, he’s surrounded by jerks. But one text changes the course of events and we learn that maybe dating a douchebag isn’t so bad after all.
Here’s what I enjoyed:
Rhett is such a sweetie. Gah, I loved him. The poor guy is so lovable and huggable! And being fluent in French! Whew! How hot is that?! Totes, HAWT!! I’m glad I listened to the audiobook version because I would have botched the pronunciations. I highly recommend this audiobook, if for no other reason, than that one.
I liked the gender reversal and the fact that the douchebag was the heroine and not the hero. I’m not typically a big fan of super sweet heroes. I like jerky assholes, but Rhett held his own. The author handled this well because if he’d been a complete pushover, I wouldn’t have finished the book. IJS.
I enjoyed the interaction Laurel has with Rhett’s family. I have to admit, I really hated her early on. But after they got together and she really started to show how genuine her feelings were for Rhett, she grew on me. Her character growth was astounding.
Overall, these books are so much fun! The captions at each chapter opening cracked me up. The characters cracked me. It was a really good read. Recommended to fans of role reversals, douche-nozzles, and super sweet male leads.
Audiobook Review: Buy it! It’s perfect! #thatisall
