Book Review – The Learning Hours (How to Date a Douchebag, #3) by Sara Ney


He’s not a douchebag; but that doesn’t stop his friends from turning him into one.


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.


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.

The Learning Hours was a sexy, funny, and highly entertaining standalone romance in the How to Date a Douchebag series, and I absolutely loved it! The storyline and characters were amazing, and I loved Sara Ney’s writing style and sense of humor.

   The storyline was fantastic. From reading the synopsis, I kind of knew what to expect, but at the same time I was pleasantly surprised throughout. The plot was very unique, and I thought it was incredibly refreshing that the hero wasn’t “experienced,” if you know what I mean. The heat, humor, and everything in between was awesome, and even though there were some parts that I didn’t like as much, The Learning Hours was still amazing and entertaining from beginning to end.

   The characters were phenomenal. Rhett and Laurel were amazing, and I loved them so freaking much. I loved their personalities and super hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. I loved reading the book from both Rhett and Laurel’s point of view, and all of their banter and interactions with each other. As I said above, I loved that Rhett didn’t have a lot of experience with women. It was very refreshing and endearing, and I loved him even more for it. Laurel had more experience than Rhett, but not in a bad way, and I loved how she tried coaxing Rhett out of his shell, so to speak. It was an interesting journey, to say the least, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. The secondary characters were good for the most part, but I wasn’t too pleased with a few of them. Rhett’s family was great though, and I really loved them. Rhett and Laurel’s story has been one of my favorites in the How to Date a Douchebag series so far, and I was extremely happy with the conclusion.

   The Learning Hours was another sexy, humorous, and addicting standalone in the How to Date a Douchebag series, and I would HIGHLY recommend it! Sara Ney did a phenomenal job with this book, and I was ecstatic with the outcome to Rhett and Laurel’s story. The How to Date a Douchebag series has been excellent so far, and I can’t wait to read the final installment, The Coaching Hours!
