I cried, I swooned, and I fell in love with the characters from Emma Chase’s GETTING SCHOOLED. I might have even learned something along the way…

Callie Carpenter has big plans for her life, and they all revolve around her life in California. But insane circumstances bring her back home and in charge of her parent’s recuperation. She still has her life in California, but in the meantime, she has to make a living and filling in as the substitute theater teacher at the same high school she graduated from is her best solution. The same high school that her high school boyfriend, someone she might not have gotten over all the way, is also employed at, which might complicate things a little.

GETTING SCHOOLED was exactly what I expected from powerhouse Emma Chase. She’s now officially a one-click author for me, everything I’ve read from her has been wonderful. GETTING SCHOOLED was a bit different from her other books, there was more depth and a deeper understanding of the characters than I usually find with Chase’s books. It might be because I related to these two more than her others, there were points when I was sobbing over revelations in the pages. It was wonderful and Garrett Daniels is my new ultimate book boyfriend – which is saying something since he’ll be the first contemporary man on the list. 

On top of the swooning and book boyfriend goodness there was also an insightfulness that Chase infused into the story. A look into what it takes to be a teacher, to love your family, and to build a solid relationship, even with daunting issues surrounding it. It was a slow-burn that left me completely satisfied at the end. I can’t wait to read the next Getting Schooled book by Emma Chase. 

This is also a ROMANCE PACKAGE pick from audible. The narration was handled by Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt. Their narration added a next level bit of extra to the book. Wonderful job, I can’t recommend this book enough for fans of romance. If you haven’t read Emma Chase yet, you should get on it.

Head of the class...

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out.

The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy—he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle.

Then...Callie Carpenter comes home.

And knocks him right on his tight end zone.

Back to school...

Callie has a pretty sweet life herself...on the other side of the country. But circumstances—that she'd prefer to never speak of again—have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school.

Now she's facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore...and that's just the teachers.

Just like old times...

When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance—and then has to stop herself from jumping him.

Good friends are all they can ever be.

Or...these teachers just might end up getting schooled—hard—by love.
