Emma Chase on writing Getting Played
"There’s just something about a hometown. The sweet nostalgia, the memories big and small, the warm feeling of being surrounded by people who really know you. When I wrote Getting Schooled, I used my own small hometown as the inspiration for Lakeside, New Jersey, and revisiting Lakeside in Getting Played felt like coming home again. This series has been such a wonderful comfort—a giddy, fun, sexy, smile-inducing experience that feels so good to listen to. It feels real and relatable, filled with characters you want to hang out with. And as we listen to them find their happily ever afters, it feels like happily ever after is within reach for all of us.
One of my favorite themes of Getting Played is surprises—how life can take gloriously unexpected turns. Dean Walker has settled his life into an easygoing routine that works for him, and Lainey Burrows thinks she knows exactly how her year will pan out. But life—and love—have other ideas. A heart-tugging surprise is thrown their way that leads them to an unexpected place—a sweeter, more beautiful place than either of them ever imagined."
