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

SERIES: Getting Some #2
NARRATORS: Zachary Webber, Andi Arndt
RELEASE DATE: June 11 2019
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.

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!

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.

5 We're Worth Waiting For Stars

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

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.

-Audiobook narrated by Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt.

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

Why do people rate books before they're out without even mentioning if they got an ARC or their reasons?
Anyway, Im going in with an open mind because I LOVED Getting Schooled. Hopefully it'll be just as good.
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 &

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
Jessica  (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
Emma Chase's Getting Played swept me straight back to Lakeside, New Jersey and into another deliciously addictive rom com following beloved high school teacher, football coach and drummer, Dean Walker, and the hilariously complicated aftermath of his one night stand with lifestyle blogger, Lainey Burrows. This story was fast paced, wickedly sharp and, brought to life by supremely stellar narration, it's another unputdownable story I never wanted to end. 

I wish this book was longer!!! I say that

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

Audio Review

Getting Played is the second book in the Getting Some series by the fabulous and talented Emma Chase. It releases in audio first and I had to pleasure of listening to it before it releases! I absolutely loved Getting Schooled and I have been looking forward to Dean's story since I finished listening to Garrett's. Oh my, Dean. The sexy, drummer who sings in a band during the summer and the smart, sexy, nerdy, glasses wearing high school teacher and football coach for the rest of the y

I'm convinced that Emma Chase can do no wrong. She writes relate-able romantic comedy in a way that just resonates with a reader. Small-town romance and all that. I ADORED Getting Played!

We first met Dean Walker in Getting Schooled as Garrett's best friend. He's a teacher, drummer, football coach and basically all-around great guy. Also a player but that's besides the point. Lainey Burrows is the new resident social media star as well as single mom to a teenage boy. She comes from a protective

Prepare yourself to swoon when you listen to Emma Chase’s Getting Played, which is releasing exclusively in audio this week. (Print and digital editions will be available in October.) It’s a lighthearted, feel-good romance featuring an endearing single-mom, Lainey, and a charmingly roguish hero, Dean, who have an unforgettable one-night stand that neither can forget. Both regret never exchanging phone numbers, but fate brings them together again a few months later when they discover that Lainey ...more
