I’ve added another book to my top ten favorites of 2017 and that book is The Learning Hours by Sara Ney. It is simply phenomenal! For me, the best Sara Ney book to date which is saying something because I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every single book I’ve read by her.
Author Sara Ney has had one major request with the release of this book and that is not to spoil it for anyone so I am most definitely going to abide by that. My review may seem a little vague but it’s a lot of fun going into this book not knowing too much. It made every turn of the page that much more tension-filled for me.
While I enjoy romance books for numerous reasons, one of my favorite is obviously the sexual tension. And let me just say, the chemistry and sexual tension between the hero and heroine in this book is off the charts. Like, seriously, I felt like I needed to chug some ice water after certain scenes. For me, this is Sara Ney’s sexiest book she has ever written. Obviously the sex scenes are super fantastic (I think I’ve made that clear) but I really just enjoyed the two main characters. In each of her Douchebag books, Sara Ney has proven that it is possible to redeem a douchebag and she does it yet again. This character starts off as kind of arrogant and well, definitely aware of their effect on the opposite sex. It was a pleasure to see this person crash and burn into falling in love and realize that their earlier behavior was cruel.
I like a good groveling scene too and again, provided! There was no doubt in my mind that the douchebag in this book felt bad and wanted to make a sincere effort to prove to their significant other that they would stand by them no matter what. (Yes, I’m being super vague like I said. But don’t worry, worth it!)
There are mentions of the previous characters in the books but they don’t take over this book. The focus is very clearly on the hero and heroine of The Learning Hours and the story succeeds because of it. Sara Ney seems to know the fine line between fun mentions of previous characters and overkill. I feel like she has really honed her writing technique in this book because there was such vibrancy and enjoyment on the pages. And there was some sexy times involving another language which I always enjoy when it feels authentic and DAMN, definitely feels authentic in this book.
I do not buy too many books in actual book form anymore. I prefer reading ebooks BUT I’m going to make a major exception with this series and purchase all three as paperbacks because this is a series I will want to re-read a lot. The Learning Hours in particular has earned its place on my keeper shelf and as a new favorite couple of 2017.
The Learning Hours is available now! Go, go, GO AND BUY IT.
THE LEARNING HOURS
How to Date a Douchebag Book 3
By Sara Ney
Release Day: September 26, 2017
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.
