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.

Listening Length: 7 hours and 15 minutes

Getting Schooled nailed what its like to be a high school teacher! I was howling with laughter and nodding along as Garrett and Callie shared their stories of teaching woe! I think this kinship with the main characters made Getting Schooled even more enjoyable for me.

At its heart, Getting Schooled is a second chance love story. Garrett and Callie didn’t have a big, tragic break up. They just finished high school and went to college on opposite sides of the country. Callie is back in Lakeside, NJ to help care for her parents and decides to take a temporary job teaching drama. Garrett, a history teacher and football coach, is more than happy to help teach Callie the ropes. If it happens to resume their carnal relationship, all the better. The drama comes from wondering what will happen when the school year ends and Callie is set to go back to California and her dream job. These two still carry a torch for each other, but both of them have specific dreams…and Callie’s dream is in California, not New Jersey.

I loved the students in the story as well. They added some levity to romance and so many of them reminded me of some of my students. Also, Callie’s parents are a hoot! Getting Schooled is one of those books that will put a smile on your face, warm your heart, and have you laughing like a lunatic!

Narrated by Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber, the audiobook is perfection. These two narrators are two of my favorites and if you listen, you will quickly see why. They have perfect timing and their narration immerses you into the story! I certainly will listen to this multiple times!



banter and humor like I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne, Good Girl by Jana Aston, Approaching the Bench by Chantal Fernando…then you will probably like Getting Schooled!

    • I had it on my audible app since it released last year and finally got around to listening. Totally worth it! Its got all the fun of an Emma Chase book with the added hilarity of teenagers plus an really sweet second chance romance.

  1. This is on my TBR list for August. I need to read this in August. It sounds so good, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I just know that I’m going to love it.

  2. I can’t wait to pick this one up. I love Emma Chase and Andi Arndt is my favorite narrator ever. I’m sure you being a teacher made it that much more relatable but even without that connection I have a feeling I’m going to love it. 🙂
