Publisher's Summary

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.

Second Time for the Win

Ahh ok so I tried this book a while ago and it was a DNF, I always say you never know and so I thought I would give this one another try. So very glad I did because this time I appreciated the book so much more.

I am not saying it’s my favorite of the series Zeke still holds all the cards but I loved friends to lover’s feel of this book. And how it started out as exactly that, friends who may or may not have had that attraction feel but friends took precedence.

There was little to no dramalama which I like, and how they worked things out really nailed it for me. I liked that they talked and no one just flew off the handle. Shows that just because we are in NA genre you can still have mature characters.

I love Muffy Newtown’s voice she really is a favorite of mine she just has that thing that makes you want to listen vs reading it for yourself. Also, Josh Goodman has a stellar voice too.

Amazing til the end

I really did love this book until the last bit of it. The whole Rex/Elliot mess just didn’t do it for me. Aside from that, I loved it. I just don’t like Rex and he aggravates me.

Love this Series!!!

Another great installment in the How to Date a Douchebag series from Sara Ney.
We were introduced to Elliott in Sebastian’s book and I loved him since.
Now that Oz is gone and Elliott has a spare room, he decides to rent it out to none other than the Wrestling Coaches daughter Anabelle.

As time goes on, the two become close but Elliott can’t get involved because he’s leaving at the end of the semester.
I loved the easy relationship between the characters and the instant connection.
I also loved the unexpected surprise that threw everyone’s plans upside down.
I was even happier to see Rex Gunderson redeem himself. Hopefully this means we will be getting his book next. I’ve always liked Rex even when he was a Douchebag but he totally grows up in this book.

Great narration by Erin Mallon and Josh Goodman. These two are amazing together and pull you right into the story.

Loved it!!

Elliot 💜

Not going to lie, I was super excited for Elliot's book and had a feeling it would play out the way it did. What I didn't factor in was how much it would hurt to listen to it. My heart almost broke several times. Such a sweet and happy ending I can't be too mad about the pain

How to Date a Nice Guy

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Has Sara Ney been reading Mariana Zapata? This was worth a credit.

Good next installment

I enjoy this series and have previously read the book but then bought the audiobook to relive it. And I enjoyed the narration very much! Both Muffy Newtown and Josh Goodman did a great job playing multiple characters and overall, it was an easy listen.

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!

Better than the 3rd not as good as the 1st & 2nd

I’m not sure why I kept going with this series. The beginning was good but it got silly and forced towards the end. The whole Rex thing was weird. Trying to be a triangle but not really. Like she needed conflict and couldn’t come up with something better to keep the story going.

Temporary Douchebags Here

A sweet story. I love Elliot and Anabell and Reginald 😂

It was nice to see/hear about Osborne and Daniels!

Honestly, there are no douchebags in this story but it was still great! I have officially added Sara Ney as one of my favorite authors!

Disappointing

Compared to the other books in this series, this book was disappointing. Annabelle was weak.
