CRUDE. ARROGANT. A**HOLE.
No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks.
SMART. CLASSY. CONSERVATIVE.
Make no mistake, Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent student—but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three.
She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected.
…EVERY DOUCHBAG HAS HIS WEAKNESS.
He wants to be friends.
He wants to spend time with her.
He wants to drive her crazy.
Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t it right that once (maybe twice) in our lives we’ve come across that someone we loathe to no ends? That excessively haughty someone you can’t get rid of but at the same time causes commotion to your beating heart? A douchebag that’s a good catch?
The female major character, Jameson, radiated that untouchable prudish vibe but was unexpectedly good-natured and smart. She’s talented and a little vixen in her own right. Although Sebastian upped his persuasion skills, he still couldn’t figure out how his star athlete status was of no use to her. Sebastian Osborne is the definitive guide to arrogance and absurdity! I found humor at his drop-the-bomb-whenever-wherever kind of mouth and he also irritated me to the highest level sometimes! But how in the universe did this male character capture my heart? Well, despite these hiccups, he was actually charming, unpretentious, and subtly romantic. He transformed into this sweet Adonis most especially when he’s on the verge of begging, and became over protective of Jameson when he really put his mind into it. She was the balance to his crazy player’s world. He was the fire to her quiet confident soul.
Goodness gracious! The chemistry between Jameson and Sebastian kicked me right to Pleasantville. The story shone for its slow burn pacing. And as soon as both characters gave in to their obvious electricity I couldn’t help but clutch my thighs together. Seriously! Every stolen moment heightened the sparks even more and every push and pull was worth experiencing. How Sara Ney looped her words to describe a particular heated moment gave me that pungent feeling that travelled from my toes all the way up, with a lasting stopover at my heart. Her words were unique and inviting even for a romantic comedy.
I loved that Sebastian and Jameson were glued to the hip for the most part, but I honestly longed for those endearingly amusing secondary characters that’s Sara Ney’s known for. I wished that the MCs had more interactions with the supporting characters, not really to overpower them, but just to compliment the quirkiness of both J and S. They were a beautiful pair to begin with but I really think they could have blossomed more! The rude awakening that Sebastian experienced towards the end may be a little clichéd for some, but for me, it was just right and brought out a fresh perspective to this light love story.
If you get off from reading books that make you giggle, smile and squirm with pleasure then I suggest you one-click this wrestling sports romance. Yes, you read that right – wrestling! Hot off the grill and not your typical menu. To add, you’ll definitely look forward to the ridiculously funny pick-up lines that give a catchy introduction to each chapter. Sara Ney jump started the How to Date a Douchebag Series with a story that brought me back to my younger days and ways. I know this series can offer more and I can bet my date’s sweet rump that the next big D will be another delectable treat. Possibly even better!!!
