On the one hand, we have Elliot... we actually met him before, but worry not if you haven't read the previous books or just don't remember him... all those stories can be read as standalones :) his roommates where the heroes of the first two books... contrary to the name of this series, there aren't really duchebags in it... at least not when it comes to our two main characters... Elliot is actually a really good and nice guy... Anabelle on the other hand... she's the wrestling coach's daughter and... well, she's not a douchebag, but she makes some unbelievably stupid decisions throughout the whole story... she's new on campus, and unfortunately doesn't have a good start... there is a bet placed between certain characters about who will sleep with her first... when she learns about it, she doesn't handle it very well... don't worry, nothing dramatic or extreme happens... just one of her stupid decisions... but because of that, she gets to know Elliot more... which then evolves into them becoming roommates :) and from that their relationship slowly changes from friendship into something more... that's basically all I can tell you without spoilers so let me just skip into my thoughts and feelings about this book... which is not gonna be easy, since I can't really say too much about why I had troubles with it... but I will do my best to explain myself :)
I had so much anger and disappointment after finishing this book, that it took me a week before I calmed down enough to sit down and write a full review... *sighs heavily* it was just such a disappointment... especially since I absolutely loved the previous three books... I didn't have much troubles with this story during the first half... I didn't mind the stupid decisions... I have no problems with flawed characters, trust me, I had similar felings during the other books... but those people grew and change... and I felt like Anabelle really didn't... and during the second half not only she stayed her annoying self, but Elliot started acting awful as well... add to that a surprising addition of a trope I really don't like in books and how it was handled by our main couple and... just... ugh... I listened to the audiobook version of this one... as with all the previous books... I have nothing bad to say about the narrators, they are amazing throughout the whole series... but the further I got into the story, the faster my reading speed was... I just wanted this book to end... still hoping that it will redeem itself... unfortunately, that didn't happen... as much as I wanted to... I just couldn't love this story as much as the other in this series... I can wholeheartedly recommend the rest of the books, but skip this one... I mean, you can do whatever you want... obviously I'm not gonna take the book away from your hands and destroy it just so you can't read it :) if you want to, definitely check it out... but maybe read also some other reviews... so you are better prepared for things... :) if I knew where this story is headed, the sting would be much smaller, that's for sure ;) but don't get me wrong, just becuse I wasn't the biggest fan of this story doesn't change my opinion about this author :) I am still a fan of her writing style and plan to check out her other work :)
But, it didn’t come. Turns out, I got my heroes mixed up. At first, I’m thinking *Oh cool, we’re going to avoid the colossal mess of Douchebag status and head straight to - I’m an intelligent, respectful man, with a brain*. Don’t hate me, but I kind of wish we got the Douchebag come good storyline.
For the first half of the book, I thought I’d be trying to come up with a term for a female douche. Douchepurse? Douchehandbag? Doucheclutch? I struggled with Anabelle, her choices and her (supposed) burdens. She was just a little too immature and self-absorbed. I’ve come to appreciate the heroine’s in the Douchebag series for their intelligence, independence and positive attitudes. I just found Anabelle a little lacking.
A predictable storyline that was exacerbated by bad choices, immaturity and selfishness, left me sighing. I had such high hopes for the conclusion to this series. With the tease that the hero wasn’t going to be a douchebag, I was looking forward to a storyline where intelligence and maturity stole the day. To be honest, I think we were lied to. I’m pretty sure there was a douchebag or two lurking in The Coaching Hours.
I’m not going to go too far into the storyline because I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say that I did finish with a smile on my face. That closing scene with Rex…CRACKED ME UP!!
The story follows Elliott, previously a roommate to the wrestlers covered in earlier books, and Anabell, the coach's daughter. I actually don't believe either of these characters fit the "D" designation. Rex does and I liked the way Sara Ney evolved his character throughout the book. I really disliked him earlier in the book and even in prior books so seeing him mature really was great although a little odd in the context of the particular story/romance.
Elliott is a sweetheart and helps Anabell. They become roommates and overall I really like their relationship. There's an obstacles to them getting together, of course, and their relationship has to evolve and Sara Ney did a great job making their journey pretty poignant, especially from Anabel's viewpoint. It was definitely a worthy listen and read!

Anabelle need a anew place to live and Elliot has a space room so it's a win win , but neither new what would happen but thing quickly in grew into more and the became a thing , but he's was off to another state at the send of his sameste to forfil his dream while Anabelle was left behind to finish her semester as a collage junior ,
What the hadn't plan on was missing each other and the love for one another and the shocking news Anabelle being pregnancy with Elliots baby , can they work thing out and share there life together and enjoy there new baby .
Another ,***** star review congratulation Sara, hoping there will be more in the future.
This book nearly topped the shelf for me and took over Rhett. It’s very much up there for me!
I loved it.
I absolutely loved Annabelle and Elliot.
I could not fault either one of them. And they were so good together it was just ridiculous! The sparks were flying between them and it was just a matter of time before something happened. They had so much going for them and a few things against them and you just don’t know which way it’s gonna go!
I couldn’t fault one thing about this book. I just loved it!
Anabelle and Elliott come a very long way in this book. It really is a proper coming of age story. At the beginning both are fairly typical college students, fun, stressed, muddled. Eventually they both mature into adulthood.
