When 26 year old Reese accepts a position as a grad assistant, she has no idea an unpleasant encounter with a student will lead to the discovery of what she calls “the trifecta”: fine, intellectual, and a little bit rude – three qualities she finds irresistible in a man. She has no intention of doing anything with that discovery – nothing long term, at least. But everybody knows what happens to best laid plans.
Jason is a grown man. 28 years old, seasoned and scarred by his real-life experience in the world, he’s at Blakewood State University to finish his degree and move on. The last thing he’s interested in is the female population on campus… but sexy, infuriating Reese might be a notable exception.
This isn’t a story of opposites attract.
More like counterparts clash.
Neither of them is afraid to do battle, and neither is willing to back down. Love and war, win or lose… somebody’s gonna end up getting schooled.

Review

Once again, I’m reading a book where I’m lowkey mad that the characters dont really exist and neither does this ‘world’ that Christina C Jones has expertly, carefully crafted for her characters. On this, her 20th project, Christina brings us a poignant yet fun story about two people who rub each other just enough of the right way.

Jason Wright is an Army veteran who has returned home to achieve his degree in Engineering at fictional Blakewood State U. His professor, Dr Imara Bryant has a graduate assistant that’s just a little too much Princess for him. Too bad, cause she fahn.

Reese accepted a position as grad assistant in her mother’s black literature class, knowing that she wouldn’t get any special treatment and that she’d probably work twice as hard. But she didnt’ expect the intellectual stylings of a particular student who woos her with his words before she ever meets him. And when she does?

Flint meet match. Neither are shy. Neither are shrinking violets. They each have sharp tongues, young minds and bodies that are READY.

Something I appreciate about this story is the inclusion of Jay as a Wounded Warrior without making it a huge focal point of the story. Reese is never not ever bothered by his injury and it certainly doesn’t…..hold Jason back. At all.

I had the pleasure of Beta reading this story and every single chapter had me cracking up.. Reese and Jay have a rythm of banter that was fun and delightful to read. And FINALLY Christina wrote a character who did some dirty and got what she DESERVED. I was THERE FOR IT.

Really enjoyable read. Now bring on them other two Wright Bros. Let us get a look at ’em.

    I read ALL of Ms. Jones books. However, when I read the description of Getting Schooled, I was like nah. I’m over 40 so reading about 20 year old really isn’t my thing. BIG MISTAKE!!

    I apologize Ms. Jones, this book was extremely well-written. Suspense, betrayal, misconceptions, guilt. IT HAD EVERYTHING. Like another reviewer, I was laughing throughout the book. I see at least 3 other character books from Getting Schooled.

    I bow down to you Ms. Jones!! WELL DONE
