Dean Walker is all about keeping life simple. He's effortlessly talented and intelligent—spending his summers playing drums in the local band and the rest of the year teaching high school in the same Jersey town where he grew up. He likes his love life simple too, enjoying the commitment-free hook-ups his good looks and sexy charm have always made oh so easy.

Then he meets Lainey Burrows. And his simple, easy life gets turned upside down.

One wild one-night stand was all it was ever supposed to be, so Lainey is shocked when she discovers that her sizzling summer fling is also her son's new math teacher. But that's nothing compared to the most unexpected twist of all—their hot hook-up left Lainey knocked up, and now they're about to become parents. Together.

What ensues is an addictive, insatiable, sweet and tender romance that won't be simple, but it will be more than worth the fight.

I love everything Emma Chase. She writes the funniest, sweetest, most lovable characters. GETTING PLAYED is #2 in the Getting Some series and just as good as (or maybe even better than) GETTING SCHOOLED. She always, ALWAYS hits the spot for me.

Dean is the swooniest hero – he is a player and learns what it’s like when your past bites you in your butt because growing up in a small town word travels fast and every single person there has an opinion about it.
Lainey and Dean’s chemistry is off the charts from the moment they meet (*fans herself*) and this author, like only a few others, can make me believe in love at first sight. Their one-off night leaves them both wanting more but it takes months until they get another chance and then it’s quite the bombshell she drops on Dean.

I loved Garrett and Callie so much but with Dean and Lainey Emma Chase upped the ante. These two are so adorable together. Dean is your typical player who falls hard and irrevocably. I adored how he was with his students and especially with Jason, Lainey’s son.
Lainey is a lifestyle blogger. Her attitude towards life is so admirable, always expecting the unexpected and going with the flow. She truly is perfect for Dean. I loved how she treated her son like a grown-up.

Supported are these two by a colorful array of secondary characters who give this story a multi-dimensional feel. I loved every single one of them. I’m hoping for at least two more books in this series. Kelly Simmons and the hot doc, Connor, Garrett’s brother.

Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt are professionals and I can’t  say it often enough – they get better with each book they narrate. It’s amazing how beautifully they breathe life into their characters. You really can’t go wrong with these two if you are new to audiobooks. Listen to a sample below!

GETTING PLAYED is a winner from beginning to end. It’s an enchanting, funny, light and fast, laugh-out-loud summer read and the best remedy for a book hangover. Emma Chase, bring on the next!

      I need to check tomorrow on my laptop if I can follow you back. Always wanted to do that with other blogs too.
