Book 4 of How to Date a Douchebag
Contemporary Romance, New Adult


Well, there are, but they're not who this story is about.
This story is about meŚthe 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 pieŚliving 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.

The Coaching Hours -- the fourth book in the USA Today Bestselling "How to Date a Douchebag" New Adult series, available February 5, 2018

4 douchetastic stars for THE COACHING HOURS!

As the daughter of the top college wrestling coach in the country, Anabelle Donnelly has lived in her father's shadow since she was a kid. Deciding to transfer to the University of Iowa, she knows she needs to get out from under his roof if she's going to have any sanity left. Enter one Elliot St. Charles. When the sexy, sweet man saves her not once, but twice, she knows moving into his place will be perfect. She doesn't anticipate falling for the man, and she knows heartbreak is imminent when she finds out his plan is to head elsewhere for graduate school. But sometimes fate has other things in store for a couple who's meant to be!

THE COACHING HOURS, the 4th book in the How to Date a Douchebag series, was a fun college romp with hormone-drenched athletes and the women who put up with them. I'm not typically a fan of NA reads as a rule, but I do enjoy this fun and sexy series very much. One of my favorite things is the little crest with quotes between chapters, they're things you've no doubt heard or said to your own friends at some point. And I know the hysterical but sobering hangover walk of shame is something that many readers will be able to relate to! While I hated Gunderson in the beginning, I really grew to adore him in the end, just as my opinion of Elliot had me swooning then scowling as the book progressed. This was a really good, poignant and sexy read that fans of any genre of erotic romance will enjoy!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
