Getting Schooled is currently an Audible exclusive (will be available on other platforms this June), and I love my audio books, so the second it went live I picked it up. Not only was the story amazing for me, but two of my favorite narrators (Zachary Webber & Andi Arndt) narrated the book.

Callie Carpenter is coming home to take care of her parents, after being across the country in California for years. She ends up getting a temporary job at her high school in the theater department,

Reading (or in this case, listening to) Getting Schooled by Emma Chase is like watching a person fit puzzle pieces perfectly together. There's a sense of fulfillment and content in listening to this story, one that warrants a sigh of pleasure. It's full of wonderful characters, humor, emotion, and depth. The voices of her characters spoke loud and true, and you will love them for it. I have always loved Emma

No rating, I didn't finish but also, I feel extremely bad because Emma Chase is one of my all time favorite authors and I don't think I've ever rated any book of hers less than 5 stars...

This book certainly is well written and has laugh out loud funny parts, something that I come to expect from this author, but I lost interest in the two main characters somewhere at 80% mark. These two reconnected sexually but I've never felt an emotional connection. Things were "told" to me and not "shown" whe

There's no awkwardness, or hesitation. We've been here before. Our lips, our hands, and our hearts remember."

Like Garrett and Callie, my reunion with Getting Schooled by Emma Chase was sweeter the second time around. I listened to the audiobook a few months ago and loved it, so it’s not really a surprise that I loved the book just as much. It’s smart, witty, addictive, and full of wonderful characters, humor, emotion, and depth.

➳Such a funny and cute story, filled with lots of fun times and a chance for a second chance at getting back your one true-soul mate...

➳As my very first audio-book, I found this one interesting since I adore her writing but I guess I am not used to audio-books so I couldn't enjoy it one hundred percent. The process of listening to this audio book actually took me longer than the average of a regular book read from my kindle. but overall I enjoyed it and hopefully I can read the actual ebook

What can I say about the new story that Emma Chase has offered us?


A typical romantic comedy like only Emma Chase can write. I have to admit that there is no book by this author that I don't love. I know that when I want to have a great time and to laugh and experience light-hearted feelings, then her books are the best.

Getting Schooled is second-chance romance at it's finest. Garrett and Callie were high school sweethearts and thought they were destined to be together forever until life came in and proved them wrong. Now years later they're back where they started, in the towns high school, but this time as teachers. Even after years of not seeing each other, though, their connection is still there and Garrett is determined to not let Callie slip through his fingers this time.

What a dud. This started so strong (like I had tears in my eyes laughing strong), but then just turned into the girl giving up her dream job to be the wife of a macho, macho manly-man football coach. Laaaame

I got this one on release day, and when I found myself stuck at an airport 8 hours from home and eventually had to rent a car to drive home I knew exactly what I would listen to during my drive!

You can’t go wrong with Emma Chase, her books are always the perfect balance between funny, sexy and romantic with a little angst thrown in the mix. Her stories are always original, solid and highly entertaining and will definitely keep you hooked all the way through. And her male POVs are hands down som

Oh my heart, I loved this book so freaking much. Every single thing about it gave me deliciously giddy feels. My heart smiled the entire time, except in those moments when it ached and when it cried. The romance in Getting Schooled is absolutely EVERYTHING. It's so heartwarming, so satisfying, so joyful. It made me want to pump my fist in the air as I read. But there's so much more to this story than just the central romance between a football coach and the newly hired drama teacher who also hap ...more
*4.5 Stars*

“She was the love of my life, before I had any fucking idea what love was . . . and then, still, even after I did.”


Some of my favorite things:

1. Books with teachers as an MC
2. Second chance romances
3. Basically any hero Emma Chase has created or will ever create
4. Garrett freaking Daniels

Garrett presses a kiss against my ear, my jaw, my mouth—gentle now—and my heart feels swollen with tenderness for him. “We’re so fucking good at that,” he whispers.
Actual rating: 2.5 stars
It's ok, I kind of liked it.

It is definitely a very sweet and cute book. However, it is not exactly the kind of romance I want to read.

The first 50% of the book is mostly detail after detail about the 2 protagonists' lives, about their families, them being teachers at their high-school, about their students, futbol practice, theatre classes, and such. Personally, that is not the kind of story I am looking for. I wanted more about their relationship, their romance. There i

5 steamy second chance stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This fabulous book is currently only available as an audible exclusive..... so if you are late to the audio party this is a fabulous chance to get started.... brilliant narration from both Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt two of the best.... A fabulous sexy second chance love story from Emma Chase The queen of the male point of view.... although I would strongly recommend earbuds if your young children are around... or any of your children for that matter....

Ahhh man... this sounded like it would have been really cute too...

Garrett and Callie’s second chance story was beautifully written. The plot was interesting and funny. The MC’s personalities were fleshed out well. The felt distinct and unique with just enough flaw and vulnerability.

I enjoyed Garrett’s perspective on his students and the way he balanced being a cool teacher with being an authority figure in their lives. I enjoyed Callie’s building passion for teaching and how she found her calling while rekindling their love.

Wow! but that was good. I would like to say my favourite from Emma, but damn I love all of her books, so I can't. But so very very good.

Small town second chance romance with high school sweethearts after 16 years apart.

Sweet, swoony, cocky, funny, sexy hero and super cool ( as I want her for to be my BFF) heroine.

Wonderful, warm and fuzzy love story. Delicious. Do yourselves a favour and don't wait for an ebook, get it on audio cause Zachary Webber... duh...

I finished this 7 hrs plus audiobook within two days.
I don’t have time to read any books but I can listen audio version while I was working.

It was a pleasant story, it wasn’t boring but nothing special either.
However, the way Ms. Chase wrote his male characters made her book stand out a little bit.
Unfortunately there are very typical stereotypes that made me give this one 3 stars instead of 4 stars rating.

After they separated, off course the hero banged absolutely everyone included the heroine h
In this contemporary romance, Emma Chase makes ample use of high school lore to craft a delightfully sweet, fun and sexy second chance story.

Not only does Garret Daniels love his job as an adored high school football coach, he has his life figured out. Stay single, enjoy his awesome house with his best friend Snoopy. That is until he spots his old flame walking across the school parking lot and his life tilts sideways, both literally and figuratively.

Getting Schooled is a sweet second chance romance story about former high school sweethearts Callie Carpenter and Garrett Daniels.

Things have changed over the years. Garrett's injury ended his career in football but he found love with History. He's n

OMG, this book! This book is EVERYTHING that I love about Emma Chase. EVERYTHING! It’s funny, sweet, smart, sexy and romantic, and a functional, easy friends-to-lovers, second-chance-romance that absolutely captured my heart. I was in love from the beginning right through to the end and I reveled in every moment of this wonderfully entertaining and blissfully romantic story.
