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 in this novel.” The main characters are both excellent. Annabelle is a cool chick and the male lead is the absolute best. I fell so hard for him at the beginning. He’s the type of man every woman wants! He’s the best ever! Such and amazing, caring, friend and lover.

The secondary storyline and redemption, of sorts, at the end was worth the price of admission…a real treat.

Here’s what I loved: The writing! As with all the books in the series, it’s funny and quirly. Although not as over the top as the previous book, but really great execution.

The male lead is #Bae (see above mushy description).

The chapter quotes had my rolling on the floor! Some were absolutley hilarious. That’s one of the features that’s made the series a must read for me.

The storyline and trope are my faves! I loved the mini twist and was downright over the moon! Sare Ney or not, I’m always down with that.

I said all that to say, buy this book. You’ll love it. Recommended!

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 AMAZING series of books.

Reading The Coaching Hours just confirmed what I already knew, I deeply enjoy this author’s writing. Her quick witted dialogues, snappy comebacks, and endearing and personable characters. Her never ending supply of fresh plots, with unique twists, and arcs that could have easily slipped into cliques.

The Coaching Hours was everything a New Adult read should be. Sweet, sexy, and engaging. The college years are about exciting times, letting go, making new friends, and enjoying yourself. And Sara Ney excels more than any other authors by writing novels that convey all of that. Light hearted, fun and sexy.

From the very beginning I knew this: THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY.

Which made me curious but also interestingly enough sad. I loved my Douchebags. But like I said The Coaching Hours was the ending of an amazing series, and it concluded with a story that was very unlike the others.

Both main characters were hands down incredibly likable. Either as best friend or boyfriend, they topped the charts of genuine and lovable. I adored their interactions, his way of taking care of her, and her inner strength to do what she believed was right.

Sara Ney, delivered a solid novel. A story that engaged, was thoughtful and fun to read. Quick and easy, exactly what I wanted – except sans Douchebags. If you love college romances, with a sweet and swoony hero, a strong and feisty heroine, and a supporting cast that surprised the hell out of me – this book is for you. The author’s signature style guarantees a captivating read and leaves you wanting more.

Fortunately more is coming  – she is already writing her JOCK ROW series, same college more jocks – and my heart is jubilating. I hope some of those jocks show some signature Sara Ney douchebag qualities. ♡

Well, there are, but they’re not who this story is about.
This story is about me—the coach’s daughter.
When I moved to Iowa to live with my dad, the university’s take-no-prisoners wrestling coach, I thought transferring would be easy as pie—living with my father would be temporary, and he’d make sure his douchebag wrestlers left me alone.
Wrong on both counts.


A bet is placed, and I’m on the table. After one humiliating night and too much alcohol, I find the last nice guy on campus. And when he offers to rent me his spare bedroom, I go all in. It’s time for the nice guy to finish first.
Midnight chats and spilling my problems turn to lingering touches. Lingering touches turn to more.
And the ultimate good guy has the potential do more damage than any douchebags ever could.
