I Liked It!
I am a huge fan of this series, and The Coaching Hours was a perfect addition to the How To Date A Douchebag family!
If you are a lover of new adult/college romance, then this book is one you need to grab. If you’ve read the previous books in the series, you’ll notice that The Coaching Hours is a bit different then the other books, as this one focus’s on Coach’s daughter, and deals with not as many douchebags as you would think.
Anabelle has transferred to Iowa to be closer to her father, and as much as she loves him, she needs to get out of his house and find a place of her own to live. He’s over protective, and is always worrying about her. After finding out some disturbing news about two guys on her dad’s wrestling team, she gets drunk at a party, and the sweet and sexy guy who consoled her at the library, Elliott, is the one to take her home and make sure she’s cared for, for the night. What happens next, is a great friendship, a new roommate, and so, so much more.
I loved how both Anabelle and Elliott were both so in tune with one another, both attracted to one another, but both so scared to make a move on each other. They were perfect for each other, but for the longest time, they definitely kept things in the friend zone/roommate zone. It was sweet, and yet so angsty. Watching Elliot try to help Anabelle through her revenge plots against the two who tried to destroy her was hilarious, and the way he was so protective of her was sweet, but my favorite was watching the back and forth, will they, won’t they between them.
Anabelle and Elliott together is a match made in heaven and I was rooting for them from the very beginning, but so, so many things come between them, and it is a very long and complicated road for them. I was pulling my hair out and screaming at times at everything that was thrown in their way during this book. Every time you’d think they finally got it figured out something else would happen and I was like NO! And then things would just get more complicated…
I will say it was nice to see some people redeem themselves in this book, and watching unlikely friendships form in this book. I truly enjoyed this book, and how this book flowed. I am guessing this is the last in the series of Douchebag books, and I am sad to see this series of stand-alone’s end, but I will say it definitely ended on a good note. I adored Anabelle and Elliott’s story and I highly recommend it. I only wish we would have had a bit more of an ending before the epilogue.. I wanted more!
