The Coaching Hours by Sara Ney: Blog Tour


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.  


    She perks up. “Wait, you’ve never had a back massage?”   “No?”   “Ever?”   “Nope.”   “Well, what the hell? How can I, in good conscience, lie here letting you rub my back when you’ve never had anyone rub yours?” She scoots over, pointing to the mattress. “Lie on your stomach, I’ll do you first.”   I wave my hands in front of me in protest. The last thing I need is her warm hands roaming my body. “No, no, you don’t have to. It’s not a big deal.”   “Are you crazy? Back massages are the best—like, better than an orgasm. You’re first, so lie down.”   “And you call me the bossy one?”   “Quit stalling and get on the bed.”   Obediently, I climb to the middle of my bed in nothing but a pair of gym shorts, legs hanging off the side. Next to me, the mattress dips, Anabelle on her knees, approaching my side.   A finger glides down my spine. “It will be easier for me to do this if I’m sitting on you. Hope that’s okay.”   “Is that the approved method?”   “No, but my arms will get tired if I have to lean over you the whole time.”   “Do whatever then, I don’t care.”   I stiffen when Anabelle swings one leg over my body, straddling my ass. Warm palms at my lower back.   “You’re so tense. Try to relax,” she coos, making it worse. “Tilt your head to the side, that’s it.”   I hear the lotion bottle snap open. Click closed. My roommate’s palms rubbing together, warming it up. “Sorry, I don’t have any actual massage oil. This will have to do.”   When her hands make contact with my back, I almost groan it feels so fucking good. Warm. Smooth. Pressure in all the right places, pushing gently into my muscles.   Slowly.   Slower still, caressing along my shoulders, thumbs and fingers working together to soothe the burning on my right side.   “Doesn’t this feel great?” Her soft voice cuts into the silence. “You’re loosening up. That’s good.”   I feel her leaning as her hands move up and down my spine until they stop, hovering at the base of my neck. Thumbs stroking the skin below my hairline, back and forth.   Kneading.   Her torso dips, hands maneuvering my arms, placing them at my sides. Palms slide up and down my biceps.   For several minutes, she rubs my arms and shoulders. Then she skims down my ribcage unhurriedly, in no rush, making little humming sounds inside her throat.   I know I’m not imagining the feather-light way her hands drift down my spine. I remain still, letting her touch me, basking in it.   Remain still when her lips kiss the tender spot of my shoulder where it meets my neck, nose nuzzling behind my ear, her breasts rubbing against my back and what the fuck was that all about? What does she think she’s doing, trying to drive me insane?

You might already know that I love this series, and I was so curious to see who would win the coach daughter’s heart :P
I loved the first part of the book, the getting to know each other part… The H, as I was expecting, is great, caring and such a good guy. The h, Annabelle, is a very simple girl, she knows what she wants and isn’t stopped by others to reach her goals.It was funny to see how the H and h fought their attraction for each other… For sure their situation wouldn’t have made a hook up simple, that’s why they didn’t want to dive into a relationship without considering every aspect… But we know how it always is, when alone in a secluded room, the auto control slips… I will leave your imagination run free :P

The douchebags of this book where such big D! One, omg, I would have kicked his ass. The other, well, he ended up to be a quite interesting character, and I really hope we will get to know more about him in the future (I can't even believe I'm writing this, but yes, I want to know more about him!).

The second part, well, I have to be honest… I struggled with it . I mean, I liked Annabelle’s reaction to what happened and her strength. As I’ve already said, she knows what she wants and isn’t scared to get her way. But I didn’t get the H behaviour, I didn't like it. His interior struggle was understandable, I want to be clear, but from how the story was told, it seemed like he lived a completely separate life even if it was such a delicate moment for Annabelle. Detached from her, and still he was angry because Annabelle found confort in a different person?Mmmm.

So yeah, loved the first part, not so much the second one... Oh, and before forgetting, loved every mention of previous characters <3 Zeke and Violet, I flove them <3
