Unicorn Boyfriend

I have really enjoyed Sara Ney's Douchebag series, but none as much as The Learning Hours. I absolutely fell in love with Rhett and couldn't get enough of this adorably awkward sweetheart! This is book 3 in the interconnected series, but can be read/listened to as a standalone.

I loved how the tables were turned this time around, pairing an inexperienced hero with a more seasoned heroine. Rhett was the perfect southern gentleman, but struggled with his confidence in social situations. My heart hurt for him as he tried to figure out the right thing to say and do, without looking like a complete idiot. There were plenty of funny times as Rhett began to explore this other side of college/life thanks to his douchebag roommates and wrestling teammates. I loved getting a cameo here and there of our heroes from books 1 and 2, Oz and Zeke, as well.

Laurel started out as the typical mean girl, but quickly learned and showed that appearances can be deceiving. Yes, things started out under unconventional circumstances, but I loved watching the slow burn chemistry between these two. Rhett's reluctance to speak freely about what he wanted, only made his attempts in French all the more swoony and sexy. It was so very refreshing and wonderful to see the good guy remain true to himself and prevail.

Thanks to the beauty of whispersync, I was able to switch easily between the audiobook and ebook and it really enriched the experience. Josh Goodman really shined as the lovable Rhett and Muffy Newton was the perfect sassy Laurel. Being able to hear all of the confusion, excitement, wonder, and love made me fall even harder for these two. Although my heart is happy and I have a goofy grin on my face thanks to the epilogue, I would love a novella or look into the future for all the couples we've met in this series. This was definitely my favorite of the 3 books though and Rhett truly lived up to his Unicorn Boyfriend status.

Boy Did Rhett Learn in this story!

I seriously have no idea why I waited to read this series. Each book in it is a stand alone, but has the same memorable characters. I couldn't get enough of How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney. Yes, I was among those who judged a book by it's title. I didn't want to read about Douchebags. But boy was I missing out. Sara Ney has a way of making her characters completely redeemable. I absolutely loved them all and I couldn't wait to read more.

This story in particular is about a guy who is by no means a douchebag. Rhett Rabideaux is a stand-up respectable guy, who happens to have douchebags as friends....well teammates would be a more accurate description, because I don't think I would want friends like those. He is new to campus and is there to wrestle and get a degree. His friends have other plans for what they think he should focus on. As the new guy, they felt it was their duty to welcome him properly to the team, through hazing rituals they deemed humorous. But the joke was on them in the end.

Laurel witnessed Rhett's hazing first hand. As a dare she began texting him, in a response to one of the pranks his teammates pulled. Little did she know, there was much more to the man behind the text. Rhett wasn't like any other man she had dated. He was more than she could have ever imagined.

I seriously did not want this book to end. I love the characters, storyline and combustible chemistry that is woven into the plot. I cannot wait to read another book from this series!

PS - The narration for this story was AMAZING! Josh Goodman and Muffy Newton are becoming among my favorite voices to listen to. Their performance is brilliant. Combined that with Sara Ney's work and the trio are unstoppable. I would highly recommend anything either of these two perform, based upon this series alone.

Rhett - Laurel

I loved this book because it was flipped. The douchebag could have been the girl really and it was nice to see a man be so clueless and sweet and what a charmer! I am a sucker for these books.

Rhett is a transfer student who is kinda lost, his team mates are not making it easy and boy do they prank the poor fella.

But if not for the pranks he never would have meet Laurel. I think I like that she was just as taken aback by her feeling’s for Rhett but she embraces it and I love that she just fell for who he was.

Sigh fantastic narration.. I neeeeeeeeeeed more books like this please.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Flove Rhett!

This has become my favorite of the Douchebag series. Rhett is unavoidably lovable and his cluelessness makes him so much more so. His cute and clumsy (non) pursuit of the feisty red haired heroine makes anyone and everyone relate to the struggles of dating even if you are long past and out of the staring scene. The narration is spot on, and breathes life into these characters in a way that sucks you in. This entire series is epic for the simple fact that sometimes even douchebags are lovable to someone. Buy this book! You won't be disappointed.

Love this series

I am a huge fan of Muffy Newtown and Josh Goodman as narrators so gave this series a shot and was hooked in the first minute of the first book. Bravo Sara Ney! All three books in this series were funny, sweet, oh so sexy (hot!) and I just loved from beginning to end. I hope this isn't the end of the series.
