AUDIBLE BLITZ - The Learning Hours by Sara Ney

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 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. Especially her.

He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair. He’s slouching, hunched over his table. Defeated. Tired. My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him. Just watching. For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading. Learning. “Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air. I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument. Twenty feet. Fifteen. Eight. Two. “Hi.” No reply. “Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out. He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.” “Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance. Shrugs. “Free country.” I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike...

"The Best Douchebag Story so far - Must Read!"
When I found out that this book was going to be an audible, I was so excited! And they Sara Ney blew it out of the water with her narrators ~ Muffy Newtown & Josh Goodman! I love these two together and they both do an amazing job bringing this book to life. 

I love Muffy's man voice and how animated she is with every part of this book. 
I love Josh's smooth voice and the cadence of his voice that makes him narrating this book so enjoyable. 

I look forward to listening to more books with these two narrators in the future and the rest of this series.

I am not sure what it is about the concept of dating a douchebag, but I knew I had to read this series. I have been hooked since the very first book and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. Each of these can absolutely be read as a standalone and each one deals with a different kind of douchebag.

From the moment I got to meet the newest member of the wresting team I just knew this was going to be my favorite. Between his room/teammates trying to teach him a few lessons in complete college fashion....complete with signs to help him get laid. I couldn't help feeling bad for the guy and they way he handles all that gets throw his way is nothing short of fantastic. I fell hard for this socially awkward wrestler that can't seem to get his teammates to lay off, but it works to his to his advantage.

When the texts start rolling in all the fun starts and you get a front row seat to see how he meets his girl and how things change along the way and how completely clueless he is to the opposite sex. It is so very swoon worthy that I couldn't put this book down.

If you haven't read this series, then this one is a great one to start with AND...the entire series is on audible.
