GENRE: Contemporary Romance
THEMES & TROPES: small town romance
RATING: 5 stars


I love everything Emma Chase. She writes the funniest, sweetest, most lovable characters. GETTING PLAYED is #2 in the Getting Some series and just as good as (or maybe even better than) GETTING SCHOOLED. She always, ALWAYS hits the spot for me.

I absolutely loved this sweet, low angst read with very likable characters.

Lainey Burrows, a single Mom, was enjoying a night out with her sister at a bar. She caught the eye of the hot drummer, Dean. Who would have thought after one night together, their lives would be changed forever.

I listened to the audiobook, and Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber were absolutely perfect.
Highly recommend!

I really don't have much to say about this book except to pick it up.
Maybe just to say that Emma Chase as usual writes great male pov.
Audio version was pure perfection!!
Funny, light, enjoyable, cute, freaking adorable....READ IT!! LISTEN TO IT!!



I am sick and tired of these assholes rating books they haven't read...and more often then not these books don't even have a blurb or cover....
What is wrong with these readers?!

5 fantastic stars!

Getting Schooled was my #1 favourite read last year, and ever since I heard that Emma Chase was going to make it into a series, Getting Played was my most anticipated read of this year. I dropped everything the moment this audiobook dropped onto my phone, and it did not disappoint!

We are taken back to the town of Lakeside, this time for the story of Dean – best friend of Garrett from book #1. Dean is the math teacher and assistant football coach at the same high school that he

YEP! YEP! YEP!!! This book hits the spot! I fell in love with these characters!

Lainey is a single mom who has a teenage son. This mother-son duo is both sweet and endearing.

Lainey comes from a big family - all girls. While out with one of her sisters Lainey meets one of the sexiest drummer ever, Dean. He's playing in a band that is sort of low key. Only during the summer months does the band perform.

A scorching hot one-night stand leaves these two wishing they had exchanged numbers. Unfortun

It's been a few years since I've read a book by Emma Chase and I had almost forgotten how beautifully charming her writing was. Almost. Getting Played was a delightfully hilarious story about how a one night stand turned into forever and I LOVED it!!

Check out a sample:

Lainey was a single mom of an incredible teenage boy. She was a lifestyle blogger and after landing a big deal, she was out celebrating. She couldn't tear her eyes off of the drummer playing

Getting pregnant by a guy, who enjoys commitment-free hook-ups sounds like a sure STD..., but what do I know?... 🙄

If I could turn back time...

I'm pretty happy with my life now but a few years ago, I couldn't help but over-analyse all my past bad decisions. If I could turn back time and give myself a bit of advice, I wouldn't be going back to right my wrongs, I'd be going back to tell myself to look forward.

Pretty philosophical, hey?

I guess I just couldn't help but feel sorry for the main characters in the story, Dean and Lainey and how they were pigeon-holed because of their past. Lainey for having a chil

4.5 stars

I freely admit that I’ve got a huge appetite for single parent romances, and Getting Played is the crème de la crème. Emma Chase is my go-to author for romantic comedy, so I’m not surprised that she delivers once again in a big way.

Lainey and Dean’s unexpected reunion brings nothing but joy. There is just something about a person finding love for the second or even the first time after handling the challenges of parenting alone that makes my tender heart melt.

It would be easy to paint

5 “A Perfect Audible” Stars

Want to listen to a story that will make you laugh, smile, sigh and blush? Than look no further than Getting Played. A sweet romantic story of finding love when you least expect it.

Hands down there is nothing better than an Emma Chase hero. He’s the best ever. The perfect part of arrogance, filled with a sarcastic funny side. But he’s also caring, loving, passionate, humorous, and sprinkled with a side of vulnerability. Dean Walker fit the bill perfectly. And not to fo
4 1/2 "Surprise" Stars!

I absolutely loved this story! I spent the whole day listening to the audiobook, which in turn makes me a very productive girl. My house is cleaner than it's been in months!

Seriously though, I loved the two main characters. I got vested in them early on. There's not much angst or drama with this book. It's just one of those stories that made me smile and feel happy. A very nice and easy feel good kind of story. Happy reading!

Shelves: unfinished
This is second in a series. You don't need to read the first before this one, though knowing the characters is lovely. They aren't very intrusive or anything, so you're fine starting here.

So I was barreling along and at 75% I just died. I mean, things were going lovely. The setup is preposterous and a little forced, but I like to give a book its premise and this one is premised on them having a fling that results in a pregnancy. I liked how their reactions highlighted the characters' inner lands

Oh my god! This was such a fun listen!! Funny, sexy, brilliantly narrated.
The trope is my absolute favorite! Babies for the win! 🙌🏽

Here’s what I loved:
I laughed out loud so many times. Man oh man, the haunted house scene had my rolling on the floor howling!
Both main characters are the bomb. I loved Dean and Lainey together. Their chemistry was off the charts! Their “encounters” were 🔥🔥🔥. Both characters are interesting and likable. The secondary characters were great

I'm a bit wary of this book. In Garret's book, Callie mentioned that Dean was never faithful to his girlfriends and that's a turn off. Hopefully I believe this change in him.

BTW: I need a book for Donna and Jerry, please :D

Why do people rate these books without having read them? Y’all saw how well Emma Chase told Garrett and Callie’s story—why can’t you trust her to do the same with Dean’s story, no matter what issues he’s had in the past? Smh.

One thing I can count on with an Emma Chase book is that I'm going to be smiling through the majority of the story. Getting Played was equal amounts of Sweet, Funny, and HOT; and with the PERFECT narrators... this one was a major win and super easy read/listen.

I dropped everything, and just binge-listen to the audiobook (for 7 hours straight), and I'm just so happy right now. This was glorious! I was waiting for the unexpected pregnancy from Emma Chase for so long, and now I got it, and I couldn't be more delighted.

Dean was such an amazing teacher. He was just wonderful with the kids. Also his dirty ways with Lainey made me fan myself. Damn this was one hot listen - that 1st chapter, whew. I needed a cold shower after re

Jason is the loveliest and well rounded young man. They have a really easy relationship and he is very protective of his mum. He is also her cameraman.

There’s nothing like an Emma Chase romantic comedy, and the fact that Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt narrated Getting Played, bringing Lainey Burrows and Dean Walker’s perspectives to life made this story even better because the banter between Lainey and Dean as well as Lainey with her sisters and Dean with his nerdy math students, Lainey’s son included, and his fellow educators were expertly brought to life by the narrators’ voices, making these scenes hilarious and captivating.

I really liked Getting School (Garrett & Callie's story). I know that I would be grabbing this audio when it released.
The set up (the meet cute) was so good, I had to go back & listen to Chapter One again.
Andi Arndt & Zachary Webber are so good. 2 of my favorite narrators.
I listened to the H, Dean's parts at 1.25x speed and the h, Lainey's parts at 1.0x. Andi speaks a little faster without any adjustment.
The blurb gives a lot of set up to the story. Lainey & Dean hook up &

This book is pure Emma Chase gold. I loved the first one in the series about Callie Carpenter and Garrett Daniels but I think I may have loved this even more.
Dean is Garrett’s best friend and he is a player to the extreme. He’s been a ladies man forever and has quite the reputation around town. He grew up in Lakeside , brought up by his Granny (she is a brilliant character) and now works as a maths teacher and f
The story itself maybe 3.75 Stars?
The audiobook as a whole 4.5 Stars.
So I guess 4.25 Stars?

Okay so where do I start? Where do I start? It feels like my heart is bursting! This was so freaking cute, funny, swoony, adorable and heartwarming. My God Dean! He. Was. Awesome. And Jason, seriously Emma Chase has a talent for writing the best kids ever! Where can I get myself a kid like that, I'd be SO down for someone like him.

Emma Chase knows how to deliever light, fun, and completely romantic novels. This audiobook had me in auditory heaven, and my heart pitter-pattered all over Dean's epic romantic goodness!

Dean was the epitome of my perfect romcom hero - all heart with a bit of devilry in him. He follows the quintessential playboy turned one-woman man with complete charm. I was unable to resist Dean in any of his forms - teacher, mentor, lover, dad. I loved them

Why oh why did I think it was a wise decision to start this audio after midnight thinking I’ll just listen to a chapter or two before going to sleep. Big mistake! BIG! I fell in love with the characters straight away that I was saying to myself, one more chapter, just one more chapter.

I’m kicking myself that I haven’t read or listened to the previous book but I didn’t feel left out in the slightest. Dean Walker is not only intelligent and a gifted drummer but he is the hottie maths teacher work
