He's not a douchebag; but that doesn't stop his friends from turning him into one.
MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID.
So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:
Are you the lucky lady who's going to break our roommate's cherry?
Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have a pulse. He will reciprakate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551
The morons can't even spell. And the texts I've been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I'm not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.
THIS ISN'T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT.
One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can't bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.
However, after seeing her in person, I know she's not the girl for me. But my friends won't let up--they just don't get it. Douchebags or not, there's one thing they'll never understand: GIRLS DON'T WANT ME.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’ve had my eye on Sara Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series for quite awhile, but I’d just never made the move to jump in and read any of them until now. At first I was kicking myself for not starting sooner, but then I realized my delay just meant I could go on an epic binge… and I sure can’t complain about that, right? Plus, I’m kinda glad I started with Rhett and Laurel’s book because I did love it as much as I did. Also? Rhett really isn’t nearly as big of a douchebag as some of his teammates. But more on that when I review the first two books. (Which, I also adored.)
Rhett and Laurel were absolutely everything, even if it did take a little longer for the latter to grow on me. I have a thing for grumpy guys, but I have little tolerance for mean girls, which is exactly what I pegged Laurel as in the beginning. Thankfully there was a lot more to her than met the eye. She and Rhett seemed the unlikeliest of pairs but the truth is, they really couldn’t have been more perfectly suited. I won’t get into the nitty gritty details because I don’t want to ruin any of the story for you, but prepare yourself for lots of character growth. Also? Plenty of feels, sexy times and deliciously sweet (and HOT) French phrases from an utterly swoony hero.
Now I have to make a confession. This is an audiobook review tour and while I started the book on audio, I switched to ebook about halfway through. It wasn’t because the audio wasn’t doing it for me. It totally was, it was excellent. Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown did a fantastic job giving life to Rhett and Laurel. (Especially during those French phrases I mentioned above.) The problem was, I ran out of audiobook listening time and I knew there was no way I could wait three days to finish the book. Soooo I promptly purchased the ebook and got right back to it once I was done driving for the day. I regret nothing. Now I have both versions for my (many) rereads in the future.
