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.
Includes a special bonus interview with the author!

Callaway Carpenter is back in her native New Jersey, her parents have been in a car accident and she has to help her sister take care of them. She will take the position of drama teacher at the high school in which is also teacher her former high school sweetheart, Garrett Daniels. I might as well tell you that their reunion will be sexy and intense.
I loved Callie, she’s great, theatre is her job, it’s her life and her dream. She finally got the job of her dreams when her parents came to ruin everything. I loved how she manages the events, even if at first she was a little disappointed to have to stay and help her sister, in the end she accepted her role with pleasure.
Garrett is a history teacher loved by his students, he is also the high school coach, a loving brother and a perfect uncle. Garrett is the perfect man, he is a seducer but his only true love has always been Callie. They did not leave each other because they no longer loved each other but because they lived too far apart.
I loved this book, whether it was the main characters, the secondary characters, the set, the story, the romance. Or even the relationships between students and their teachers which are very interesting. It’s kind of weird to look behind the scenes and it’s great. Like all Emma Chase’s books, I laughed a lot, she has a crazy talent for creating funny and sexy characters. Getting Schooled reads very fast and you will have a great time with these characters.
I can’t wait to read Dean’s story because I’m really intrigued by this boy.
Quick word: A must read book.
Callaway Carpenter est de retour dans son New jersey natal, ses parents ont eu un accident de voiture et elle doit aider sa sœur à s’occuper d’eux. Elle va prendre le poste de professeur de théâtre au lycée dans lequel est aussi professeur son ancien amour de lycée, Garrett Daniels. Autant vous dire que leurs retrouvailles vont être sexy et intenses.
J’ai adoré Callie, elle est géniale, le théâtre c’est son métier, c’est sa vie et son rêve. Elle vient enfin d’obtenir le poste de ses rêves quand ses parents viennent tout gâcher. J’ai adoré sa gestion des évènements, même si au début elle est un peu déçue de devoir rester et aider sa sœur, au final elle accepte son rôle avec plaisir.
Garrett est un prof d’histoire aimé de ses élèves, c’est aussi le coach du lycée, un frère aimant et un oncle parfait. Garrett est l’homme parfait, il est un séducteur mais son seul véritable amour a toujours été Callie. Ils ne se sont pas quittés parce qu’ils ne s’aimaient plus mais parce qu’ils vivaient trop loin l’un de l’autre.
J’ai adoré ce livre, que ce soit les personnages principaux, les personnages secondaires, le décor, l’histoire, la romance. Ou même les relations entre les élèves et leurs professeurs qui sont très intéressantes. C’est assez étrange de voir l’envers du décor et c’est génial. Comme tous les livres d’Emma Chase, j’ai énormément rigolé, elle a un talent fou pour créer des personnages drôles et sexy. Getting Schooled se lit très vite et vous passerez un très bon moment en compagnie de ces personnages.
J’ai assez hâte de lire l’histoire de Dean parce que je suis vraiment intriguée par ce garçon.
En bref: Un livre à lire absolument.
High school parking lots are one of the most dangerous places on earth. I don’t have statistics to back that up…but I know it’s true.
I pull into the school parking lot Monday morning in my Dad’s giant, newly repaired mint-green Buick, with Back in Black by AC/DC blasting from the speakers. I feel tough, powerful—like I’m driving a tank.
I’m a badass teacher—I’ll run you down even if you’re a student—I’ve got twenty-nine more in class just like you.
The outfit helps too—leather boots, blue jeans, a starched white blouse and a black leather jacket. It’s my armor. The morning air is cool and crisp today, but I barely feel it. I’m locked and loaded and ready to roll.
As I march towards the main entrance, I spot Garrett and Dean and Alison Bellinger outside the doors. They pause when they see me, waiting.
“Damn,” Dean chuckles. “Callie’s got her shit-kickers on. Did you dig them out of a mosh pit from 1993?”
Garrett crosses his arms. “Somebody’s channeling Michelle Pfiefer in Dangerous Minds.”
He looks fantastic. His hair is tousled from the breeze and kisses his brow, and he’s wearing a dark blue sweater that’s snug around his biceps and soft, worn, light blue jeans. I remember his arms around me yesterday on my parent’s porch. The wonder and exhilaration of the moment.
The intensity in his eyes, the desire and possessiveness in the grasp of his hands. The scorching feel of his mouth, his wet talented tongue that made my stomach swirl and my head spin.
So much for not complicating things.
But I’m not going to play head games with myself or Garrett—we’re too old for that shit.
I have feelings for him—I always have—our break-up had nothing to do with either of us not wanting each other desperately. But these aren’t just leftover echoes of a sweet, first love—this is something new. A throbbing, breathless attraction to the amazing man he’s become. I want to be near him. I want to know him, inside and out, all over again.
And he feels the same way. Garrett wants this version of me as much as he always did—maybe even more. I heard it in his whispered words and felt it in his kiss.
I don’t know if we have a future, if it can go anywhere. We have separate lives on opposite ends of the country. But I’m not going to worry about that—for now, I’m going to take each day as it comes and enjoy every moment we can.
Except for now. Now is not the time for enjoying or worrying or relationship building…now is the time for focusing. Now is the time to be ice and steel—don’t smile, don’t waver.
“Little fucknutters don’t know who the hell they’re dealing with,” I growl.
Allison pumps her fist. “That’s the spirit.”
Garrett opens the door for me. “Go get ‘em, Gangster’s Paradise.”
