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 set-up conducive to a scorching love 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.
Getting Real is my new favorite from Emma’s Getting Some series! I didn’t expect this to make me laugh as much as it did, but there’s plenty more to love in this one.
Since audiobooks have been my go-to for the past month, I was eager to finally get into this one. And it was the perfect companion during my room makeover. This was just the perfect listen full of laughs, so many heart-filled moments, and we can’t forget the steam 😉
I don’t even know where to really start with my review, can I just say that I loved it?
We have a single parent, recently divorced, age gap and a workplace romance. Emma does a great job writing romance with the single parent trope since Sustained is another phenomenal book that everyone needs to read as well. Connor has a great career as a doctor and he’s doing an even better job with his kids. They are his life and he will always do right by them.
And Violet was the best! I loved her character a lot. She has soooo much love to give and it was great seeing that shines through when they started dating, and she was spending more time with the boys.
I was pretty interested to see what the conflict would be and Connor does a pretty laughable yet idiotic thing in the beginning, but it was hard to be a little mad at him. Guy has dated in a while, but when it’s pointed out by his friends, it was comedic gold! But towards the end, another bump comes through and I just loved how it was all worked through. Definitely brought some tears, but I was beyond happy that there was no third-act break-up!
All the recommendations for this audiobook, love the narrators every single time and they did such a fantastic job portraying both Violet and Connor.
