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.

I fell in love with this series when I got the chance to listen to the third book in the series, The Learning Hours for an audiobook tour. After I finished that one, I knew I had to go back and read the first two in the series, which I haven't got around to yet, although I have a copy of the first one sitting on the bookshelf by my bed. Of course I knew who the first two books were about because they tell you in each one basically. From what I'd read, I'd really been looking forward to maybe this book being Rex Gunderson's story. And in a way, it kind of is. Just not the way I'd hoped. In this book we get to meet Anabelle, the daughter of the wrestling coach from the first three books. As you would expect, he forbids all of his team members from dating her. And as we know from the characters' behavior in the past books, some of them take that as a direct challenge. Gunderson being one of them, along with his roommate. The two of them are the ones who posted the flier that humiliated Rhett, yet led him to his true love in the end. In this book they make a bet on who can sleep with Ana first. I was confused at first about who the romance was going to be for Ana, because there was the chapter with Gunderson and Johnson, as they usually start out the books it seems. Then there was some guy called Elliot, and I didn't quite understand about him. But I see from some other reviews on Goodreads that I wasn't the only person a little confused at first. But I figured it out, and fell in love with Elliot. Well, until...until he goes away to grad school in another state. And that is where the book went a little south for me, and part of what made me drop it to a 4 star instead of 5. At that point it kind of developed almost into just letters between the two. The story seemed a bit rushed at that point, almost glossing over the wonderful details the story had earlier on. I kind of wish it had been more regular story chapters as opposed to the letters and emails that it was written as. In the end I did like the way it went. I will say that Gunderson definitely ended up getting what he deserved, although I still want a book about him getting his happiness. And it's nice to see the author mention on Facebook that there is always a possibility that book could come about some how. Anyway, now I must get around to reading the first two books.
I can't believe this is the last instalment in this series, it seems a bit surreal. Sara Ney has again delivered a fun, witty, heartwarming (with some heartbreaking moments), angsty and drama filled kinda book. I enjoyed reading this from cover to cover, in one sitting. I seem to be unable to function once I start a Ney book, I cannot put it down until I have devoured the entire story in one gulp. For me, I needed more, I couldn't get enough of the two characters I would have loved several chapters on Annabelle's past seeing her childhood with her parent, the split her life before she moved to her dads's place. I would have loved to see more of the Hero's POV, his background, the dynamic with his family, etc. What I am saying, I would have loved for this to be my Lord of the Rings Trilogy length kinda book, there is no such as 'too much' story for me when it comes to Sara Neys' books. The characters all surprised me, there were some secondary characters I thought for sure were unredeemable, but then they surprised me with their character development and how much they grew as a person, which I absolutely LOVED. The dialogue, the banter, the tension building, the chemistry are what I now expect from a Sara Ney novel, and this one was filled with all of those and then some. Even though the Hero is not the classic definition of d***hebag, he still had his moments of typical dumb man sh*t that caused me to dislike him for a while. This is a story of a love when the timing isn't great, a story of people making hard decisions, evaluating what their priorities are in life and always being true to who they are but still grow as a person. This is the perfect end of an era of mighty d***hebags and a perfect conclusion to an amazing series. I am looking forward to Sara Ney has in store for us next.
Sara Ney does it again in one of my mostest favoritest series ever!! This may be my favorite book in the series to date! NO SPOILERS, but you will love this book!!
