Summary

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 douchebag has his weakness.

He wants to be friends. He wants to spend time with her. He wants to drive her crazy.

He wants...her.

Great book

I loved this book but the female narrator is horrible. She has ruined every book I’ve listened to with her. I loved the male narrator. He was awesome.

Profanely funny!!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this audiobook, but I was often startled into laughing aloud. This irreverent, hilarious, yet somehow sweet college romance was a real delight to listen to. The hero has a potty mouth, but in a funny way. The heroine is a prim, scholarly and inexperienced girl who is at times wickedly funny too. He takes a dare from his buddies and she falls in with it, which sets his interest on her. He's kind of a womanizer, but something about her keeps drawing him to her. I loved the story, the characters and narration was well done.

Fantastic Audio!! Definitely a Page Turner!!

A MUST READ!!!
My favorite type of story is a college romance with a combination of opposites attract, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, and sexy steaminess!!!
Sara Ney NAILED it!!!!
She gave it all in this book!
So funny and flirty.
So Sexy and Addictive!!!
An amazing story of the journey two people take when falling in love.
Sebastian and Jamison are the cutest couple. They banter endlessly and their connection is explosive.
Their chemistry was a slow build that literally vibrated until it combusted!!
I loved that slow agonizing burn. It was beautiful.
Absolutely Beautiful.
The writing is flawless. The author sucks you into this story and has you falling head over heels for the characters.
I could put it down.
I laughed and swooned!
And when they finally came together after their agonizing build up, it was TOTALLY worth the wait. Sara blew me away with the intensity of it!!


I listened to this on audio!
So so good!!!!!!
Josh Goodman and Muffy Newtown were FANTASTIC!!
They were so passionate and on point with the characters and everything just came together so perfectly.
I'm on a high right now from this amazing read.

I'm telling you, you need this book in your life!!

Oz come to life.

I have been waiting for this audible for what feels like forever, okay it’s probably only been a month. But I am thrilled that I can listen to these dbags any time I want now. The story is fantastic and the narrators really brought these characters to life. I will be listening to this one over and over.

3.5 The Studying Hours Stars

I enjoyed this book but I didn’t love it.
Oz was the douchebag I figured him to be, but in a different way. When a “bet” was put into place I thought oh no not like other books. But this wasn’t like that and it was refreshing.

I will say even though sex was implied and talked about the actually act doesn’t happen for a LONG time. And it worked for this book.

I like Jameson too she had to grow on me, I don’t know if it was her character or what but I wasn’t a fan at the beginning but I grew to like her by the end of the book.

I am a banter girl and I loved the banter in this book. I think that is what saved it for me. And their chemistry was off the hook.

I loved the narration, its Muffy Newtown so that’s a giving I am going to love it. And Josh Goodman was a perfect Oz.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

College Story of An Unlikely Pair

In the Romance package so I tried my first Sara Ney book.

I had to remind myself these were college age people, in particular the men. Men do talk and act often with their libido and not their head or heart until they meet a girl to be serious with.
Oz is a big athlete on campus..everyone knows him and he can take any girl to bed as they all chase him.
Jamison is a girl who looks very serious and stuffy, when she really isn’t.
Oz and Jamison meet in the library as a result of a bet Oz friends make. Apparently very different people, Oz is intrigued that Jamison doesn’t thrown herself at him...Jamison recognizes Oz as a player...so Oz pursues a friendship wand constant trying to get her in bed.
I found it strange Oz couldn’t decide what his feelings were for Jamison, no way to define them
Jamison was smart enough to be careful as he could hurt her. I enjoyed their banter...how easy they were with each other..
I’ll listen to the next...although Oz friend who is the focus is,really difficult to like.

Horrible Narritive, Lacks substance & Extremely crude toward women and sex in general

The narrator or for Jameson doesn’t have a bad voice, it’s just the context in which she speaks in so incredibly annoying. And when it got to the point where they finally date and having “intimate moments’ (one was just on a date in the batting cages), oh wow...it sounded like straight up porn the way she moans all loud and annoying and speaks all out of breath and high pitched. I almost stopped the book altogether. But I was already 70% in, so I finished it and just fast forwarded the “love scenes”. The guy was mediocre but not bad.

There also wasn’t really a climax in the story either. The whole book feels like you’re reading about the beginning of a relationship and romance, and then...that’s it lol it lacks conflict, a plot and overall substance.

It’s also pretty degrading toward women. And I was hesitant to download this, but it had a lot of good reviews so I gave it a go, but if you’re reading this-Pass on it. There’s SO much better for romance or YA romance out there.
