Getting Played (Getting Some #2) by 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.

5 out of 5 stars

This was such an amazing story! I loved Dean and Lainey and this adventure they were on together. It was so entertaining, sweet, and sexy! Loved it!

I loved Dean and Lainey's first meeting. They had such an amazing, instant connection. I was filled with so much anticipation as things played out, as Lainey found out she was pregnant and I couldn't wait for Dean's reaction. I thought they had great development together. There was this awesome instant lust that grew and became so much more. It was fiery and hot but also so sweet and caring. Lainey was awesome, I loved her vibe and attitude and her outlook on life. I adored Dean, he was so smooth and sweet. I loved learning about him and all of his wicked ways from his past. He is far from the outrageous teenager people remember him as. I love how he was honest and open about his past, learned from it, and really grew. There were so many great moments happening, they had me laughing and smiling, and sometimes I had tears in my eyes because it was so heartfelt.

There was an awesome cast of secondary characters involved. I loved Lainey's son and their relationship and I like the bonding moments he experienced with Dean and with others. I loved getting to see Callie and Garrett from Getting Schooled and getting updates on them. I adored Dean’s grandmother, she cracked me up. There was also a character connection to another series that thrilled me to see.

The writing was fantastic. It moved at a good clip and I was invested the entire time, excited for what was going to happen next. There was such a good flow that had me hooked and I really enjoyed the dual POVs as well as the timeline of the story. Great details mixed with a lot of sweet, a nice amount of heat, a whole lot of heart, and more laugh-out-loud moments than I could count.

Emma Chase is such a wonderful storyteller. She has such an engaging way of telling a story that pulls you in. I couldn’t read fast enough and never wanted it to end. This was amazing!
