The Coaching Hours (How to Date a Douchebag #4)

36974635.jpg

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.

Nice guys DO finish last.  THIS nice guy rounds out the end of the douchey series.  Ah yeah.

I was excited to start this one, not sure who it was going to be about and how it was going to have in the title How to Date a Douchebag and there are "no douchebags in this story."

So then I start and was like "Oh.... DAMN.  Elliot," and promptly wanted to know how he was going to turn me on.   Because he's nice.  He's not a douchebag.  And chicks like douchebags.

ellie:  And seriously.  Who the fuck thought Elliot would be so damn hot.
Sara:  I put off writing him forever because I wasn't sexually attracted to him
ellie:  But damn.  He comes in with a bang out of nowhere.

Sara must have found her sexual attraction because Elliot is DIVINE in this one.  That was a real life text above, bee tee dub.

This is a complete standalone with brief appearances from past characters.  While this is sweeter than the past douchebags, Sara still manages to keep it sizzling, highly entertaining, and funny as all ducks in a cardboard box.  Not that that is funny.  But it sounded funny when I first typed and I don't feel like deleting.

Sara's storytelling are just like our conversations.  I'm not biased.  I don't even know Sara.  

If you're new to the series, you're going to be okay starting with the nice guy.  If you're not new to the series, you're going to be okay ending with the nice guy.

Oh shit.  Did I spell Elliot right in this review?
