Audiobook Review: How To Date A Douchebag (The Learning Hours) by Sara Ney










 How To Date A Douchebag
The Learning Hours Series, #3
By Sara Ney
Narrated by  Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown 






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.

Viviana's Review: 

This was okay. It was the first time I've read/listened to anything from Sarah Ney as well as the narrators. When I see all the 4 and 5 star reviews and here I am saying it was okay, I wonder if we read the same book. 

The dialogue was extremely juvenile which is a turn off for me. Also, there was a lot of repetitive internal dialogues which was totally unnecessary. Then add that the heroine is conceited and immature. Moving onto the hero, we're asked to 'believe' the whole story line of the hero being extremely unattractive and unpopular even though he is the BEST wrestler on the team, which includes winning several prestiges awards for wrestling. It was too far fetch. Without providing spoilers, the heroine gets better, but the story dragged as well as Rhett disbelief that someone like Laurel would be interested in him. This totally killed it for me because Rhett was a character that I liked. He was a decent guy! Very sweet and smart. 

Lets not get started with Rhett's Team Mates. They were the douchebags. Considering the blurb said "Friends" and that's so not the case. They were complete jerks and completely unlikable


There is very little conflict between the Hero and Heroine once they get together. Readers get an HEA. This could have been a much better story if it wasn't for the above mentioned items.


Narrator Reviews: 
I really enjoyed both Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown performance. They are new narrators to me and I'll definitely be looking up their body of work.



Overall, I wanted more from the story as it had such potential. This is the first book by Sara and this series. The previous two books (which include two of the team members from this book) have gotten better reviews than this one. Considering the narrators are the same for the previous books, I may check them out.
