Available in audio first, an extraordinary new romance by New York Times best-selling author Emma Chase!
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 — by love.
Every time I listen to an audiobook I wonder why I don’t do it more often. Provided that the narrators are good, listening to an author’s words is such a treat. In this case, both the story and the narrators were fantastic…a perfect match! Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt were the perfect embodiment of Garrett and Callie and it almost felt like sitting with two friends as they recount an important story about their lives. If you haven’t listened to an audiobook, do yourself a favor and give it a try!
Now let’s talk about this book. What a fun, humorous, sassy, sexy story this was. Garrett and Callie were the types of characters I’d want as friends – they felt real! These two were highschool sweethearts who’d gone their separate ways but now find themselves thrown together due to a family issue that Callie is facing. They discover pretty quickly that the sparks are still there…that fate may definitely want them together. The romance was sweet and sigh-inducing, sexy and hot, and, most importantly, heartwarming. And, when you throw in some wonderful secondary characters and some laugh-out-loud moments, this is such a fun way to spend a day.
I loved the depth of the story that’s been told here. There’s more to this book than simply the romance. There are everyday situations that the characters face and there are interactions that are both simple and complicated at the same time. As teachers, Garrett and Callie are responsible for what they see happening around them at school and I really enjoyed that this was a big part of the story. I loved Garrett’s focus and desire to make his students into good people. He’s a genuinely good man and I can’t tell you ow much that made me swoon. His devotion to Callie was so sweet and, of course, his internal banter made me giggle. Callie was facing the unknown and having to make some difficult decisions. She wants to please others but she’s strong enough to understand that she needs to be happy too. I loved the progression of this story and the end made my heart happy.
As always, Emma Chase has written a book that that I loved spending time with and characters who I’ll add to my favorites list…and my book boyfriend list too! The audiobook is available now and the ebook/paperback will be available in June. Whatever version you prefer, pick this one up…trust me. I think you’ll really enjoy it!
