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.
This has been such an enjoyable series! Who knew that I could fall in love with such crude, mean jocks? How to Date a Douchebag: The Coaching Hours is by far the least douchey of all the books. In fact, it’s a really sweet end to the series.
Throughout the series, Coach Donnelly has been depicted as such a curmudgeon in the locker room. However, at home he’s… well, he’s even more prickly when it comes to protecting his baby girl. By baby girl, I mean his 20-year-old transfer student daughter, Anabelle. You’d think the hockey players would heed Coach’s warning not to go near her, but you’d think wrong.
In the midst of being targeted by some tasteless jerks, Anabelle finds a savior in the form of one decent guy. She’s anxious to move out of her parents’ home, and he just so happens to have a room to rent. There’s such ease and warmth between the two unexpected roomies. Their chemistry is wonderful.
There’s a little bit of drama and the characters make some stupid choices, but the story is endearing nonetheless. Surprisingly, I wound up loving one of the characters whom I’ve always found to be incredibly irritating.
The entire How to Date a Douchebag series is highly entertaining, and The Coaching Hours is a welcome addition.
