5 stars for Getting Played 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.

Last year when I listened to the first book in this series, I was blown away. I thought for sure it would be my favorite of the ‘Getting Some’ series, but I was wrong. Getting Played was even better and more addicting than the first! I was obsessed with this book and couldn’t stop listening.

Getting Played is about Lainey, a single mom, who lets loose one night in the summer and does something she never usually does. Has a one night stand with a sexy drummer. Dean is this drummer. We know Dean as Garrett’s best friend and the math teacher at Lakeside. They only have one night together, but it’s hella hot and perfect and the only regret Lainey has is that she didn’t get Dean’s last name and doesn’t have a way to contact him.

It would have really been handy when she found out she was pregnant… Lainey and her teenage son move to a new town, Lakeside and Lainey is ready to raise the baby on her own and all is good. Until she runs into Dean again… gah! I loved their reunion so much. This story was just everything.

I loved that Lainey was a strong and independent single momma who always put her son first. She deserved love and someone who would be there for her, but was okay on her own. Dean has such a player past but he’s the type of guy that once he meets the one, it’s over. And Lainey is his one.

Of course there is a bit of drama and angst, but overall it’s just a really sweet and fun rom-com. If you’re looking for a good time, pick up this audio book! Once again, Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt did an incredible job narrating. I loved listening to this book. Their narration is wonderful and they voiced Lainey and Dean perfectly.

This is such a heartwarming and feel good romance. It was swoony, sexy, sweet, and left the biggest grin on my face. I adored it. Seriously, there wasn’t anything I didn’t love about this book! Highly recommended to all romance lovers.
