Our Review

‘I want to be her everything. Because somewhere along the line, that’s what Lainey’s become to me. Everything.’

We’ve been chomping at the bit for this book, desperately looking forward to returning to Lakeside, New Jersey to meet the girl who puts Garrett’s (from Getting Schooled Book #1) best mate, the drum playing, nerdy hot teacher, Dean Walker on his arse! Well, what a hit! We fell in love with everything about this story! The sexiness, the banter, the swoon, the characters and of course, Dean, as brought to life by the undisputed Queen of the male POV, in her own inimitable style!

‘It’s a great kiss, the kind they write songs about. A movie star kiss – that gets the audience all hot and bothered. The kind of kiss that deserves surging background music – a whole soundtrack – that goes on and on and on.’

We love Emma Chase’s writing! It’s so distinctly her. There’s something so warm and beautiful about the way she tells a story. The humour is spot on and again, her male POV is like no other. Plus, we always see a little bit of ourselves in her heroines, so we easily identify with her stories.

They say karma is a bitch and Dean’s about to get well and truly bitched slapped by her! The player does indeed get played by a smart, strong, funny and sexy woman by the name of Lainey Burrows a single mum to 14-year-old Jason who sends his world into a spin.

Whilst on a night out with her sister, Erin to celebrate the success of her lifestyle blog, ‘Life with Lainey’, Lainey catches the eye of a hot drummer who is playing with his band, Amber Sound. After a bit of Dutch courage, Lainey succumbs to their sizzling chemistry and does something quite out of character, spending a night of heart-pounding lust with Dean, leaving the next morning without exchanging details or numbers, however, fate would step in and their paths would cross later.

Erin looks at Dean. “No offense, you seem nice and all – but Ted Bundy seemed like a nice guy too.”
“None taken. Ted Bundy ruined it for all of us.”

Lainey and Jason move to Lakelands to restore an old house for her blog, and lo and behold, Jason’s teacher is none other than the hot drummer, who also, as it turns out, is a hot intelligent nerd, teaching Honours and Advanced Placement Calculus at the local school, but there’s something else, Dean discovers…he’s Lainey’s baby Daddy, a role he hadn’t contemplated until Lainey and Jason came into his life. Is he ready to be a father with all the responsibility that goes with it?

‘According to my son, Coach Walker sounds like a combination of Captain America, Eddie Vedder, Chris Hemsworth and Albert Einstein.’

We absolutely loved this story! Lainey was a fiercely protective Mum who had the most amazing relationship with her son. We loved how Dean not only taught these super-intelligent young minds educationally but also, about life. To enjoy it, and to just ‘be kids’. Great message! The sweet and tender intimacy between Lainey and Dean complimented the sizzling and lusty chemistry perfectly.

The Grey Army had us in fits, Lainey’s family gave us a good chuckle and the banter throughout the book had us grinning from ear to ear. A small town romance that really brought the swoon!  The wild drummer come sexy professor and his sweet, strong sexy girl. Another winner from the fabulous Emma Chase! We’re really hoping there’s more because we’re loving this series!

“I’m a chance worth taking, I swear to God.”


A magnificent new romance by New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase.

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.
