| Book Review |
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I cued this audio up, but I didn’t think I’d love The Learning Hours as much as I did. I really enjoyed Rhett’s character. He was a nice change from the playboy ‘hero’ we’re used to, and I have to say the same about Laurel’s character as well. It was refreshing to read about a confident young woman who was fun and carefree without a thousand issues eating her up inside and stunting her progress in life. They were fun whether they had scenes together or with their friends. (Though in Rhett’s case, I use the term ‘friends’ very loosely.) I freaking loved how Rhett was naive when it came to the opposite sex. I loved the scene where he had to ask his teammates what the signals he were receiving meant. After all the hazing they’d put him through, I would have loved to see more of those scenes and him connecting more with them. I also how Rhett wasn’t a traditionally good looking hero, but how he and Laurel connected through text and phone, and how they were getting hot for each other before they’d even met. (Rhett’s New Orleans accent did tingly things to Laurel’s insides.) Overall, I thought The Learning Hours was a fantastic read, and if you’re a fan of New Adult that doesn’t take itself too seriously and isn’t rife with angst, I think you’ll love this, too. I’ve already gone back and bought the first two books and audios in the series, and I can’t wait to read and listen to them!
Notes about Audio: I loved both of the narrators for this book. I think they did a fantastic job with Rhett’s accent and conveying how frustrated he was with the circumstances he found himself in with his recent college transfer. I would definitely seek out books with these narrators.
