Publisher's Summary

Available in audio-first, an extraordinary new romance by New York Times best-selling author Emma Chase!

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.

Includes a special bonus interview with the author!

unbelievably wonderful!

What made the experience of listening to Getting Schooled the most enjoyable?

started off good, got better, and better, and BETTER!

What did you like best about this story?

I chuckled, laughed out loud, cried, every emotion was covered.

What does Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Zachary and Andi brought the characters to life! They were so real and in character didn't appear to be reading a book but living it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Could not stop, listened in one sitting. Planning to listen again....

Any additional comments?

I have all but stopped listening to romance novels because it's all sex. I love a good sizzle and this book has plenty but I want a story to go with it and to care about the characters in the story. Emma Chase did a wonderful job Between her writing and Zachary and Andi's reading the story could not have been any better. Thank all of you

My favorite Emma Chase book to date!

STORY OVERVIEW AND REVIEW:

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 Chase's words—it's smart, witty, and addictive. Getting Schooled has all of that in spades.

Garrett Daniels and Callaway Carpenter fell in love in high school, and thought they would be together forever. You'd look at them and know it's not puppy love. But distance and time apart put an end to their relationship, and they both move on with their lives—Callie in San Diego trying to make her way into the theater world, and Garrett back at home coaching his old school's football team to the top.

An incident Callie would rather not think about ever again makes her move back to her parents' house in New Jersey. She takes a temporary job at her old high school as the substitute teacher, and there she reunites with the love of her life. Garrett Daniels, golden boy and former star athlete of their school, is now the football coach of the team. They finally get their second chance more than a decade later at the very same place where it all began.

I knew from the moment Garrett and Callie talked to each other again that they were meant to be. Without a doubt. Everything about their relationship felt real to me. It was so heartwarming to see them feel and act so at ease with each other even after being apart for so long. They are each other's person. Whether they're laughing, making love, or breaking apart, it brought a tug to my heart that rarely happens when I read books. And I read a lot. I loved this couple that much.

While Garrett and Callie's reunion was central to the story, I love that Getting Schooled also highlighted what it's like to be a teacher. It was interesting to see their train of thought, the efforts they did to reach their students, their frustrations and hurt, and the joy of seeing their students grow and learn. It added so much to the story without stealing the spotlight from the romance.

WHAT DID YOU LIKE ABOUT THE AUDIOBOOK?

Aside from the story, the narrators were fantastic! I'm a huge fan of Andi Arndt, so it's not really surprising that she did a wonderful job here. I've only listened to Zachary Webb a few times, but it still blows my mind how amazing of a narrator he is. He's amazing in acting out not just Garrett, but every single person in this book. I've never been so entertained by a narrator as much as Zachary Webber.

These two wonderful narrators brought to life a story that is already strong on its own.

This is definitely one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've listened to. The emotions and imagery were so vivid that I felt like I was in their world. I saw the football games, sat with the students in class, watched front row as Garrett and Callie got their second chance. I laughed out loud, smiled like a complete idiot, and cried. By the end of it, I felt so full. I was ready to burst with love and emotion.

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS AUDIOBOOK TO A FRIEND? IF SO, WHY?

Absolutely! Romance fans will enjoy this wonderfully written second chance story. It has everything I could possibly want in an audiobook, and I'm sure audiophiles and audiobook virgins alike would agree.

Meant To Be!

When Callie gets the phone call saying her parents were in a car accident she doesn’t hesitate to rush home to help out. They will need assistance for a year so she puts her life in San Diego on hold and her dream job and moves back into her parents house and takes a job teaching drama in the high school.

Garrett is a teacher and the high school football coach. He has built himself a life and is surrounded by friends but once Callie, his high school sweetheart and the only woman he ever loved, returns home it is like a missing part of him is back.

Garret and Callie were young and in love until Callie needed to leave town to attend university and their relationship was unable to survive. From the moment they see each again it was like they had never been apart and they had never gotten over each other but will they both be left with broken hearts when the year is over?

This story is a second chance at love for two soulmates that is full of laughs, tears, romance and everything in between. The narration was superb and it made you feel like you were right there experiencing it along with the characters. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Copy of this story.

a new favorite from Emma Chase!

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 happens to be his high school sweetheart. It's a heartfelt story of what it means to coach and educate, to guide a future generation and instill confidence in them while they're struggling with teenage angst and social issues. It's about family and friendship and the humor and heartache that connects all of them. And, of course, it's an unforgettable love story between characters that I just adored. 


I loved every facet of this book, every layer, every side character. And I loved how much I was made to feel through the powerhouse narration of Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt. We've been saying it for years: Emma Chase writes the male POV like no one else around. The voice she gives all of her characters is utter perfection, but the voice she gives her heroes has placed her on a pedestal since the days of Drew Evans. But the added perk of this book being released first as an audiobook is that the already vivid voices she gives her characters through her lush writing style are ratcheted up exponentially by what these narrators bring to the table. It's just PHENOMENAL. A marriage made in ROMANCE NOVEL heaven, that's what this is.The stunningly superb writing of Emma Chase meeting the wholly intoxicating voices of Webber and Arndt? What's born from that union is an unforgettable, all consuming reading experience that I NEVER WANTED TO END. 


I loved the love story between Garrett and Callie. It's a second chance romance between two characters who are so obviously made for each other but whose lives took them in two different directions after high school. But years later, they find themselves brought back together again by a hilarious course of events, their reunion evolving against the backdrop of the very same high school in the same small town where they fell in love as teenagers. It's so smart and incredibly refreshing what Chase creates with this premise. What I loved most about it was how much I related to it. Not only can I easily relate to the joys and frustrations of working with students that are sometimes selfish, sometimes unkind, often insecure, sometimes troubled, but I laughed out loud throughout this story and furiously nodded with understanding as Garrett struggled to call his old teachers by their first names now that he worked alongside them. This book is a beautiful depiction of what it's like to work with students, how your heart both soars and breaks for them, how frustrating and rewarding it can all be, but it's also warm and funny. This is everything you want in a feel good romance. 


Getting Schooled is DELICIOUSLY sexy, full of heart and humor, and it's peppered perfectly with just the right amount of angst and uncertainty, breaking my heart and putting it all back together in the most unexpected ways. Callie and Garrett are so right together, so sweet, so good. I loved them and I felt every nuance of their love and their longing through the superb narration in this audiobook. Exquisite storytelling and wickedly smart writing is elevated by the PERFECT voice of these narrators and it all comes together in this magnificent package of romance and palpable emotion. Getting Schooled is a new favorite of the year for me. It's so well done, so unforgettable and I'll be listening again and again. I absolutely LOVED IT.

I wish there were more than 5 stars. This book is one I will listen to over and over. Thank you Emma Chase for bringing so much of life to us through your amazing story telling.

Sexy, witty, heartfelt and just downright Emma Chase doing what Emma does best! She makes her characters etch their way into your heart! But with the audio version, it emotions and all the feels are only heightened due to the marvel performance of one Zachary Webber! Which just brought the story to life for me!

Incredible!!!

This has got to be one of my favorite books out of the over 600 audible books I have. I laughed, cried and enjoyed every minute. The narrators Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber nail it. I can't say enough good.....do yourself and favor and listen to this book. If your part of the Romance Package it's even easier.

Great Second Chance Romance

This is one of those audiobooks that when you start it, you just want to listen to it all at once as it's so addictive.

Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt did a great job narrating as usual, they really brought the characters and story to life.

Can't wait to listen to the next book in this new series.

So so so funny

There were many times I found myself laughing out loud listening to this story. I’m still laughing thinking about it.
Zachary Webber is so talented. I love listening to his sexy, heated, sarcastically hilarious narration.
Both narrators have that ability to make you feel every emotion the characters are going through.
The story is a feel good, going back home rom com. God I cried about snoopy.. but I loved how Emma turns the sad tears into happy ones so quickly.
Thanks for the laughs I really needed at this point in my life xxx

Really liked the more mature characters in this book over many others in this genre. No angst, just funny and cute. Highly rated, perfect narration. Not one I’ll keep in my library for a re-listen but author continues to shine
