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.
After finishing Royally Matched in a day, I had a renewed love for Emma Chase, so I was excited to see that Getting Schooled was part of Audible’s Romance Package. I quickly downloaded the book and began listening.
Emma’s books (the ones that I’ve read so far, anyway) are great palate cleansers in that if you’re looking for a light, quick, and fun read… her books are the way to go.
It was no different for Getting Schooled. Though there was nothing mind-blowing or super butterfly-inducing about this book, I really enjoyed reading it.
I work at a school (not a teacher), and I can tell you that Emma absolutely nailed it. It’s amazing how similar teachers are to students when it comes to cliques and friendship circles!
One thing that I actually really appreciated, was the approach to teaching these characters took. I liked that the techniques were described in pretty good detail. It almost made me feel like I could go teach a class! (TBH I would never want to be a teacher, it seems like such a hard job!)
