How to date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney is live!

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 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. 

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.


Sara Ney is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the How to Date a Douchebag series, and is best known for her sexy, laugh-out-loud New Adult romances. Among her favorite vices, she includes: iced latte's, historical architecture and well-placed sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets, and fancies herself British. She lives with her husband, children, and her ridiculously large dog.

First of all, Sara Ney, you gave me a heart attach with that first chapter, just FYI... I'm still recovering, and you won't be forgiven soon.... :P It was just cruel to make me believe that the H would be Rex!

Sooo, what to say about this book? It was different from what I had expected, but I loved it! 
The main characters are Rhett and Laurel, and they made a really interesting couple.

Their story has quite a particular beginning, and I laughed so much while reading the text messages between those two! It was for sure a captivating conversation:P and in general, the interaction between those two was 😍 
I loved the different prospective of The Learning Hours, with the male protagonist who is actually a good guy, and the female protagonist who can be put under the douchebag category, at least at the beginning. 
Lauren in fact appears quite superficial, a beautiful girl who knows her appeal and is used to be seen with hot guys.
Rhett, on the contrary, is a normal guy (for sure not the typical hot guy with a pretty face :P), but also a good guy, with a good heart.
This reversed situation, we can say, created some very interesting situations, and I loved the development of their love story, especially when there was so much flirting going on from one side (Laurel), but so much cluelessness from the other one (Rhett)!

As always in this series, there was quite a character growth in this book, and Sara Ney absolutely nailed it! We get to read about a character, in this case Laurel, who really changes during the book, and it was really great to compare the two different versions of that person, the one of the beginning and the one at the end of the book. I have to admit that I needed a little time to warm up to her, but by the end of The Learning Hours I could see that she was perfect for Rhett.

One thing that I appreciated really much is one of the messages conveyed by this book, an important message: the importance of what we have inside us, an insight beauty, versus an aesthetic and shallow beauty that appears only on the outside.
