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!

5 stars = I freaking LOVED this audiobook!!!

I was super stoked to queue Getting Schooled up on my Kindle Fire this morning because I'm a huge Emma Chase fan. That I was able to listen to it as part of the Romance Package was a much appreciated bonus as M/F romances don't always work well for me on audio. But because I'm impatient and wasn't willing to wait for it to be released as an ebook, queue it up I did. And I thoroughly enjoyed Getting Schooled , both the storyline and narrative performances by Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber.

This was a great second chance romance because Garrett and Callie's separation wasn't due to a miscommunication or a fight or them growing apart, but rather due to geography and educational and career goals that took them in different directions – literally. We do learn, much later in the book, that there was a major unresolved issue between them, but it wasn't what led to their split. Watching the two reconnect and fall in love again (though, I'm not sure if it's again when I don't think they ever stopped loving each other), seeing Callie find her way as a teacher, and witnessing them navigate a present together while not knowing if it would lead to a future together was emotional and entertaining. And then to have it all play out in a high school setting, even though the main characters are teachers and not students, was perfect! Oh, how the cliques abound, even after high school.

Emma Chase usually reduces me to tears by making me laugh so hard I cannot breathe. While there were certainly some laugh out loud moments in Garrett and Callie's romance, they weren't responsible for my tears. There is a scene in the book that had me literally sobbing (I'm deep breathing right now to hold back the tears, just thinking about that scene). I won't tell you what happened – and hopefully no one else will ruin it either because if I have to deal with puffy and itchy eyes, you should too – but make sure you have a tissue on hand, just to be safe. The scene might not hit you as hard as it did me, but some of you will likely entertain the notion to stop listening for a bit – do if you need to because it's a heartbreaking scene, but make sure you finish the book because you won't want to miss what the rest of the story has in store for Garrett and Callie. No, Chase made sure to heal the hurt she inflicts with that scene.

This is a first for me from both Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber. I've seen many romance audiobook lovers sing their praises, but as I listen primarily to M/M romances, I hadn't listened to either narrator before today. Both Arndt and Webber were fabulous, and I'll be sure to check out more of their work because they took the words of an author I love and brought them to life in a way that made it a pleasure to listen to. I was thoroughly entertained by their performances.

And I am beyond excited to learn that Getting Schooled is the first book in a series! I'm so glad I listened to the interview with Emma Chase because there was nothing on Goodreads or Audible to suggest that there would be more books to come. I'm already looking forward to Dean's story!

NOTE: I listened to this title via Audible's Romance Package.

Absolutely LOVED it!

Okay so admittedly, I’m a slave to Zachary Webber’s voice and I love Andy Arndt but I loved the story SO much. These narrators just bought the feeling a life into the characters. I laughed and cried. It was so freaking sweet this book is my new favorite book and it wasn’t even dark lol. And IDK if there was a mistake or something but this book came out in the Romance Package on day one! WOOT-WOOT! Anyway, this book reminded me of Moorestown, NJ- ironically, I’m a New Yorker so it’s not my hometown but there’s literally a Main St. totally reminds me of Garret’s bagel shop. I fell in love with their town, the people and the story. LOVED EVERY WORD OF IT.

Insanely good as always.

Emma Chase does not disappoint. She is in an elite class of writers and also gets great narrators. These two characters are adorable and I’m loving the small town and its characters. Can’t wait for the rest of the series.

LOVED THIS BOOK

I loved this book, truly one of my favorites by Emma. The story was great, and the narrators were perfect. Zachary Webber has become one of my favorites and when he is teamed with Andi it just makes the book all that much better.
This story was refreshing and it made me laugh out loud.

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.

Any additional comments?

Emma Chase has popped my audible cherry! Yep, that’s right. GETTING SCHOOLED is my very first audiobook and it was BEYOND a success! Garrett Daniels is EVERYTHING! Callie Carpenter is EVERYTHING! These two together…are FREAKING EVERYTHING! I also have to say that even though this is my first audiobook, I’ve definitely heard the names Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber in the romance book community. They have narrated and worked with some of my favorite authors so I was doubly excited for this to be my first! To me, they are officially the King and Queen of the audible world! Along with the EPIC WRITING of Emma Chase, they brought Garrett and Callie to life! I found myself rewinding on multiple occasions to hear the insane sexiness of Zachary’s voice (even with some of the Jersey accents)! I’ll let that slide, kid. And Andi’s beautiful voice took Callie to a whole other level. Together, these two voiced something magical and something unforgettable! I will never forget this first experience, that’s for sure!

Emma Chase, I will ALWAYS crave your words, your stories, your characters. You bring magic and emotion to each and every single page. Garrett and Callie’s story brought so much light to my life and so much fullness to my heart. Once I began, there was no going back! I wanted SO MUCH MORE! Ms. Chase’s words are addicting, expressive, and emotional. They’re hilarious, sensual, and invigorating! She helps bring these characters to life and makes the romance that much more special. I’m in LOVE! I’m absolutely head over heels, smitten, so far-gone, intensely and completely IN LOVE! I’ve read every single one of Emma Chase’s stories and I have to say, this one right here, it just might be my all time favorite of hers! I’m not sure if the audiobook version sealed the deal for me, but it doesn’t matter. I’ll be reading it ALL OVER AGAIN when the eBook releases in June!

Get ready to smile, swoon, laugh, and cry! Get ready to…GET SCHOOLED!

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.

Brilliant

This story was really funny, heart warming, hot & additive. I couldnt stop listening, the narrators were amazing and if im honest i will probably be doing two things. 1) listening to this story again & 2) purchasing more Emma Chase stories. I love the authors style of writing. I would definitely recommend this story to everyone who enjoys this genre.

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
