Sunny Shelly’s Review: Getting Real, by Emma Chase

Getting Real by Emma Chase is now live in audiobook!

A sexy, hilarious, emotional, new romance from New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase.

Connor Daniels never thought he’d be starting over at dating square one. His career as a successful doctor, and his three boys, are everything to him. It’s not exactly a setup conducive to a scorching social life—but he’s giving it a shot.

ER nurse Violet Robinson never intended for Connor to find out she’s had a crush on him forever. It was a dirty little secret only meant for her dirty dreams. Her heart trips every time he’s around—and so do her feet.

When Connor sees Violet coasting across the grocery store parking lot—and she falls on her face—he starts falling for the gorgeous, young nurse right back.

Dating can be tricky. And life can be beautiful and crazy and unpredictable. But when it gets real, you discover what matters most . . . and the one person you want loving you through it all.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Getting Real was a delightful age-gap/coworkers/single dad romance. Connor and Violet’s story is funny, sweet, sexy, steamy, and emotional all wrapped up in one.

Connor is a fantastic hero — although I wanted to smack him for playing games like a teenager after he and Violet went out for the first time! Thankfully, he got his act together, and the rest of this story flowed smoothly. There is little drama between Violet and Connor, but some miscommunication and assumptions cause issues between them.

I really liked the connection between Violet and Connor. As a single dad over 40, he has a maturity to him that I don’t find in 20- or 30-something heroes. I loved how well Violet fit in with Connor’s kids, and how easygoing the relationship is between them.

Getting Real is a complete standalone — but within the Getting Some series. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but I am definitely interested in reading rest of the Daniels brothers’ stories!

Getting Real was released on audio first — and Zachary Webber is TO DIE FOR as Connor! Oh wow, he has such a sexy voice! Andi Arndt is fabulous as well, and these two really bring Connor and Violet to life!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
