Getting Played, 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.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

You know those times when you just want to relax and get lost in a good romance? Well, add GETTING PLAYED by Emma Chase to that list of books.

Once again, Chase has written an entertaining romance that’s equally sweet as it is sexy. The writing flows well, and I was quickly immersed in Dean and Hailey’s story. The one-night-stand and unplanned pregnancy tropes are common in romance-land but I very much appreciated the down-to-earth attitude of the characters and how they handled themselves; I found them relatable.

Like the first book in the ‘Getting Some’ series, there’s a great cast of secondary characters that really add to the overall storyline without overshadowing our couple. I like this town and I like the people that live there. There’s an ordinariness to the characters that makes them feel familiar. They do the same things we do: hold down jobs, pay bills, have the odd nutty relative and try to carve out a live they enjoy living.

I hope there are more books planned for this series. Lots of laughter, lots of love and lots of steamy goodness is a great recipe for a romance book.
