Second chance romances are fantastic and put with Emma's voice there will be magic. A great take on high school sweethearts getting a second chance 17 years later.
Who says you can't go home again? Not Emma Chase.
Callie is called home to NJ after 17 years when her parents are in an accident. She doesn't hesitate to pack up her stuff and head back East. When she's faced with staying in NJ for a year to help her parents, she gets a job teaching theater at her old high school -- the same school where her former flame Garrett is a history teacher and head football coach.
Thrust back into each other's lives it's like no time has passed. Callie and Garrett quickly fall back into each other's arms.
As easy as it was to fall back into each other it's not without obstacles. Callie is only back in NJ for the year. And there's the way they ended things all those years ago -- unresolved hurt that can only lead to present day problems.
Emma always puts a fresh take on a traditional romance trope. I loved everything about this book. I even got an Audible subscription to have access to the story now and not waiting until summer. The narrators really enhanced this story. The life that Andi and Zachary brought to Callie and Garrett only made me love this story more. They perfectly captured the characters.
I'm starting to think this is my hill to die on --- Emma Chase is the master of the male POV. Like all her other male leads, Garrett is layered and well defined -- funny, charming, smart, determined, a family man, a good friend, and a great teacher/coach.
As great as the male leads are, Emma doesn't skimp on the heroines. Callie is a force and she always will be with or without Garrett. A strong female lead is needed in these stories to make them successful. Emma does a great job making her heroines strong but relatable.
I loved this book so much. It's totally worth the Audible subscription.
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. 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 Emma 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 read.
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 extraordinarily good. I loved them wholeheartedly and I felt every nuance of their love and their longing. Emma Chase brings her A-Game in Getting Schooled with her exquisite storytelling and wickedly smart writing and it all comes together in this magnificent package of romance and palpable emotion that I seriously never wanted to end. Getting Schooled is a new favorite of the year for me. It's so well done, so unforgettable and I'll be rereading it again and again. I absolutely LOVED IT.
