I Liked It!
This series is addicting and I’m always looking forward to the next installment, and the next douchebag we are going to meet, but in The Learning Hours, we meet the complete opposite of a douchebag, we meet hero of this story, who’s the most sweet, sincere, and naive guy on the wrestling team at Iowa. I instantly fell in love with him and wanted him to find love in the worst way possible.
As you can read from the blurb, it all starts with an add, get our teammate laid, what starts as a joke ends up leading to an amazing story of acceptance, finding beauty in the eye of the beholder, and teaching someone how to accept who they are. Our hero doesn’t actually have the looks the previous characters in this series, but he’s got the body, and his personality is one that any woman would love to date.. but he’s timid, and really isn’t sure of himself outside of wrestling. When what starts off as a joke with a girl, ends up becoming more, he doesn’t know how to handle her flirting, and how a girl like her could possibly want something to do with him. With the team hazing him, him not knowing what to do with her, things get crazy and I loved his awkward attempts at flirting and his internal conflict at trying to figuring things out. Seeing her dealing with her feelings for him as well was frustrating as well.
These characters were a match made in heaven. On the outside they may not be perfect, but they truly are perfect for one another. I truly enjoyed watching their story play out and watching them learn how to navigate a relationship where both of them learned about their insecurities, what they wanted and how to get what they wanted. Seeing both of them grow in this book, and all of the hilarity that ensued while it happened was awesome. This book was definitely not about a douchebag, but we definitely met a lot throughout it! I can’t recommend this book enough, and I highly recommend picking up this stand-alone in a series of amazing books!
