The Coaching Hours by Sara Ney Review

5 Smooches

Synopsis

THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY.

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.

ASSHOLES ALWAYS COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK WHEN THE STAKES ARE HIGH.

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.

Review

I am so sad to see the end of one of my FAVORITE New Adult series but what a tremendous end to a phenomenal series. Oddly enough, though the series is the Douchebag series, neither of the two leads fall in that category. That is what makes this book the perfect end to a series full of reformed douches.

I have read several of “The Coach’s Daughter” books and this is by far one of my absolute favorites. Sara Ney writes New Adult in a way that reminds me of many of my favorite old school (circa 2012/13 and before) favorites while still being fresh and unique. Her words are exciting, intense, funny, and each moment has the anticipation building.

If you haven’t read any of the series, no fear, this can easily be read as a standalone. But, I urge you to consider to read all the stand-alones in the Douchebag series. There has not been one book in it that I did not love. Much like the rest I devoured The Coaching Hours in one day and I know you too won’t be able to put it down.
