Sports romance is definitely a favorite genre of mine. How to Date a Douchebag is a series I haven’t read everything from (The Lying Hours), but have definitely enjoyed what I’ve read. The Teaching Hours is a novella in this series that was previously in the Team Player 2 anthology. Today I want to share my review of this novella.
A big thanks to the author and WIldfire Marketing Solutions for providing me with an ARC to read and review.

The Teaching Hours is everything I love in a novella. I wasn’t left with a lot of questions, but I learned enough about Hannah and Rex to care about them. It was just enough humor and romance to make my bookworm heart happy. Even though I’m satisfied with how this ended, I would’ve loved a full book about these two.
Hannah is a character that I could really relate to. She’s awkward, but means well. There is no filter to what she says and sometimes she talks out loud when talking to herself. In many ways, Hannah is just looking for love while being herself. A coach didn’t seem like a bad idea to help her out.
Rex made some bad choices, but is getting his life back together. He used to be a player and is still known that way. Rex’s life has changed in many ways, so he can’t even think about being that way anymore. I really loved Rex. His sarcasm, sweetness, a soft side with his niece and just his personality. I think he’s just looking for his happily ever after without realizing it.
The Teaching Hours is short, but has the perfect balance of humor, romance, steamy moments and happily ever after for now. After reading about her best friend, I think she would’ve been a great side character if this was a full length book. This reminds me why I really need to get to the rest of the books in this series ASAP!
This was such a fun novella. Even though it ended really well, I have to say I would’ve loved a full book for these two amazing characters. What are some of your favorite sports romances? Let me know in the comments!
