Hey humans! How are y’all? I miss blogging, and I can’t say I‘m back because it’s still rocky for me. This probably my first and last blog post for December 2018 for two days more and 2018 will officially ends.
Anyway, this post is way long overdue! Can you imagine how hectic my schedule is? That I failed multiple times of editing and polishing my reviews and that results to failed blog posts. BOOOO! However in 2019, I will do my best to publish a review at least once a week. Hence without further ado, here is my review of Getting Schooled by Emma Chase.
Getting Schooled is the first book in Getting Some series by 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.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Chase writes contemporary romantic comedies filled with heat, heart and laugh-out-loud humor. Her stories are known for their clever banter, sexy, swoon-worthy moments, and hilariously authentic male POV’s. Emma’s novels have been translated in over twenty languages around the world.
Emma lives in New Jersey with her amazing husband, two awesome children, and two adorable but badly behaved dogs. She has a long-standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.
By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother who resides in a small town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life.
Who would have thought that I would enjoy listening to the audiobook of Getting Schooled? Honestly, that is accompanied by an ebook because I can’t follow the story by merely listening to it.
Getting Schooled is about Garrett is a high school teacher and football coach, and Callie who goes back in town and substitute as a teacher. This two had a past romantic relationship that reignited while he taught Callie teaching techniques.
Garrett’s voice will make your heart flutters. His voice is seriously hot. He is HOT. HOT. YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH GARRETT’S VOICE. BEWARE. Technically, it is Zachary Webber’s voice and damn I’m swooned that I had to search all his other narrated novels and I’m surprised! Okay, that’s it. I’m side tracked. Haha. Garrett is loveable, charming, sexy, and hot (how many times did I mention this? Haha). Callie is talented, attractive, intelligent and kind-hearted. Their chemistry is out of hand that I could absolutely feel their connection.
Getting Schooled made me speechless. I enormously enjoyed this book. That’s it. I’m done! Haha. Kidding aside, how this book was written is exceptional. It is not hard to understand. The emotion that this book would like to send to its reader/listener was there (I cried because of Snoopy). The characters are intriguing, and the story is in good pace.
Highly recommendable to those readers who prefer a steamy, intense and sexy story.
Emma Chase did it once more, she made me crave for her other works. Again.
P.S. Baker Street reminds me Sherlock Holmes.
“Visualize the win. See it happen, then make it happen. You got this.”
“Because the harder you reach for something, the more it hurts when you end up slapping the pavement with your face.”
“It’s a strange sensation standing in front of someone you’ve loved deeply—someone who, once upon a time, you couldn’t imagine not seeing, not talking to every day. Someone who used to be the center of your whole world . . . that you just don’t know anymore.”
“Our job isn’t to protect them from their own dumb choices; it’s to teach them to make better ones. Teach them how not to be a screw-up in a screwed up world.”
“Losers lose and say—I can’t do it. Winners lose—and figure out what they did wrong, so they can do better the next time.”
“It’ll hurt like a hell, I’m not going to lie. But you’ll get through it. You’ll know you gave it your all and that your relationship with her was a moment in your life that you’ll never forget. You learn from it, let it make you better. And maybe, down the road, you’ll meet someone else and that’s how it’s supposed to go. Or maybe, one day if it’s really meant to be . . . you’ll get another chance with her. And if that happens . . .”
“Some guys would worry that they could be falling too hard and fast for a woman they’ve technically only been dating a few months. But not me. Because I know the irrefutable truth.
It’s too late—I already fell, a long time ago.”
“It’s a school, but it’s also its own society, with its own rules and rituals—a condensed, mirror reflection of the outside world.”
“David, there will an after . . . an after this. This will pass. But the choices you make right now will affect the rest of your life.”
“I think you are capable of doing wonderful things. Some incredible things with your life. You just have to . . . wait, take a breath . . . and make the right choice. To do better. And I’ll be there to help you.”
“Life is going to knock you down, every one of you. Some way, at some time, something unexpected is going to come and hit you right in the knees. Knock the wind out of you.”
“You have to go on, because life goes on. Even when you’re hurting, even when it’s hard—you have to pick yourself up, lean on the people around you . . . and go on.”
“When you’re an adult, you’re supposed to know how to handle things like this. Pets get old—people get old—and eventually, everything dies. It’s a brutal, basic part of life. As a grown-up you understand that, recognize it, accept it . . . but that doesn’t mean, for a single second, that it doesn’t still hurt.”
“Growth is painful; change is hard.”
