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.

    4 stars “I let you think you’re handling me.” “Nah, I let you think you’re not getting handled.” Getting Schooled was my first book by Christina C. Jones and I’m a fan. I can’t wait to continue on with this series and get to the rest of the Wright Brothers. I love new adult/college age romance but this one was a little difference. It took place at a college, but the students were older than your typical college student.

I loved the banter between Reese and Jason. What started out as a strong attraction/enemies to lovers turned into so much more. This couple was a bit older and more mature and knew what they wanted out of life and each other. I was so happy when they finally got together. I also loved the little side romance with their parents. This was a fun and steamy read the audio was great. I’m excited to read more by this author!

    Awwww!!! See...this is why I read the kinds of books I do. For this feeling I have right now after finishing this novel. *group hug* everyone!

Being in Reece's world was almost like having an animated conversation with one of your best girlfriends. And she happens to say some off the wall stuff every once in a while. And you crack up cuz she's an absolute mess. But the witty banter didn't end with the main characters. Reese's mother and her BFF had me in absolute stitches. There were so many quotable one-liners I practically have the entire book highlighted. I want to know all if these characters in real life. And that's a mean thing to do to me CCJ because these folks don't actually exist! But if that weren't enough, there was an incredible amount of heart in this story. Reese and Jason both experienced some major losses in their world and it allowed them to connect on a deeper level. Interestingly enough, none of this detracted from the overall levity of the story. I had a wonderful read with this one. Also, it's been great seeing everyone's status updates as they read. I mean...tears. Y'all are a fantastic mess and I love it.

    This was so fun! First, I loved how our characters were older in college and that Reese was a TA for her mom's class. It was so cute how she kind of fell for Jason just through his writing before she even met him. I loved the sort of hate to love they had going on and how they loved to banter with one another. So cute! This did get more serious near the end with Jason and Reese dealing with emotional pasts and helping each other get through that. I also loved how Jason had a prosthetic leg!

I don't see that ever in the romances I read, so I loved how he appreciated Reese treating him normally instead of like someone who constantly needed help. Overall, I loved the couple's banter and how they slowly fell for one another! TW for loss of a parent.

    I’ve been reading this over the last few months as a way to be like ‘see, I’m still reading novels!’ 😬 I really liked these characters. I loved the depth they were given and the attitude! The story’s pacing was good until it hit the final chapters. And I only really mean how quickly they talk about ‘love’ and ‘forever’. The steamy scenes were good too. I think the first one was the best. I love how Reese and Jason truly had their own personalities.

I felt like the best friend was kind of cliche but we don’t spend too much time with her. I’ve never read a story that includes an amputee so this was pretty insightful. Overall, I enjoyed the story and these characters. There were many times where I had a grin on my face. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up another Christina C. Jones book.

The Wright Brothers were my introduction to Christina's GREATNESS and I will always have a special place in my heart and on my bookshelf for this series and these characters...LOVED IT! ORIGINAL REVIEW I think its safe to say that I and many others have been feigning for movies with Black characters that aren't crooks, robbers, drug dealers or slaves... I've also been searching for BOOKS with Black people who aren't baby mommas, hood rats, round the way girls, drug dealers, king pins, mobsters or just plain fuck boys.... I've been searching all year and I've come across a number of close calls... The majority of those being centering around interracial couples. Which is fine, I have nothing against that, do you boo... But that's not what I was looking for. And then I came across Christina C Jones. I swear if it wasn't weird I would KISS her right now because, THIS BOOK! Everything I was searching for and everything I never dreamed I could have. A black romance that felt authentic, was engrossing, swoon worthy and most of all depicted the everyday black folk that is rarely ever shown in the movies or TV shows. accurate representation is so important and Christina delivered and then delivered. Getting Schooled is about Reese who is a 26-year-old graduate student, working towards a creative writing degree to inspire and nurture the minds of people who feel stifled and smothered by curriculum, proper technique and rules. She is a graduate assistant in her mom's Modern Black Literature course which is where she bumps into Jason Wright, literally. A 28-year-old war vet, pursuing a Masters in mechanical engineering with a focus on Automotives. He's smart, handsome, assertive and woke and they cannot stand one another. Aren't those the best books though! The will they won't they dynamic. And even though you KNOW they will it's still fun to watch them go through the motions. Reese and Jason's banter and back and forth literally had me smirking and smiling for 85% of the book. I couldn't take the feels but I wanted more with every page I turned.  I just loved this book! I loved that it was a black romance but there was more than just their relationship at the forefront. Reese and Jason both have issues that stem from troubled pasts and it plays a role in their lives and relationships and it's always a nice touch when authors throw in a little deep with the sweet. I think what I loved most about this book was it didn't feel contrived. There have been a couple books I've read with affluent black characters and it just seemed extra. They were astronauts with helicopters and limos, butlers and maids, private jets and islands and I'm just like NO ONE needs all that lol. Reese and Jason were just them. Working towards bettering their lives and careers, wanting to be around good friends and family and just living their lives. They owned their own houses, and sure Reese had a purple Audi, but when you work hard you should be able to play hard too...but it was REAL. it felt real and attainable. Not saying there can't be a black astronaut with private jets and islands but again. WHO NEEDS ALL OF THAT! Anyway....THANKFULLY there is another book in this series that features Jasons brother who is a doctor and Reese's best-friend who is studying to be a doctor and just look at black excellence at its finest. My hope is that this book was not a fluke, that ALL of Christina's books are just as amazing as this and that Amazon or Goodreads will recommend some like authors and books so I don't have to rely on just ONE person to fulfill my ever growing need and desire to see myself represented in the entertainment I consume. Reccomendation: Black, white, brown, or green, this is a great romance novel that ANYONE can enjoy and you should definitely check it out if you're looking for a nice little contemporary romance that will hit all of your feels.

Everything that she writes is golden and I've been loving my journey in reading a lot of her stuff! 4.5 Stars. CW: death of a parent Getting Schooled is hate to love done so well. It focuses on Reese and Jason. Reese is a heroine with a troubled past who attempts to get her life on tract and eventually becomes a graduate assistant. It is through her work that she meets Jason who is maybe just a tad bit rude and pushes Reese's buttons like other. What happens next is nothing short of a hilarious and beautiful romance filled with chemistry and some of the best banter. As I have stated in previous reviews, CCJ is gifted at characterizations. She makes her characters both realistic and likeable. Jason and Reese are like oil and water at first. They do not get along and they have no intentions of getting along. The pure sexual attraction that they have is undeniable, but they can't stand each other so the back and forth is pure gold. As a reader, you can't help but anxiously await for them to figure things out. While I think that most of this novel is fun, there are some serious moments where the emotional struggles for each character is addressed. There's a lot of loss that they're both dealing with and sometimes it comes out in the form of projection. This is where they both become supportive of each other. They don't appear to experience loss the same way, but they understand that their pain may be similar. I wasn't expecting that level of intensity, but I'm glad that it was a part of the book. Jason also has a prosthetic leg and while it isn't the entire focus of the story as a whole, it is important to Jason's character development. It's insight to how he views himself and past conversations that have occurred when a partner finds out and it also serves insight to how Reese views him. Overall, this was a great book and I'm excited to continue the series. Every time I read a CCJ book I continue to understand why people love her so much. She's so great at everything she writes!

    2020 Fall Bingo (#fallintorombingo🍁): Series Following a Large Family Love CCJ’s voice as usual, but I was frustrated that TA/student ethical implications are never discussed. Feels like a weird omission, especially since the novella starts with Reese offering editorial comments on Jason’s paper. The disability rep (Jason has a prosthetic) is great and the subplot with their parents is adorable. I docked a star for the lack of discussion re: ethics in the classroom.

    Petition to become internet friends with Christina C. Jones because I just really love this woman. Hero has a disability. Content warning for loss of a parent/car crash. He’s a college student and she a TA. They were so stinkin’ cute. And they had a great sarcastic/fighting banter going that I really enjoyed.

It was refreshing to see family being not only supportive but also cheerleaders toward their widowed parent deciding to date. They were such a comical group! And I loved seeing a disability represented, with Jason having a prosthetic leg. In terms of the actual romance, it’s quite smooth sailing the entire way through. I think I would have liked a larger bump in the road for Reese and Jason to overcome, but overall it was a really cute read. 3.5 stars

    Loved this :-) The beginning was especially dynamic! The banter, the pettiness, LOL. Loved it! The end, despite showcasing honesty and the fantastic ability to be one's self in a relationship and receive support, was a little too weepy for me. I still wanted more of the back and forth I thought was lost somewhat. Nonetheless, this book had excellent characters!

I still wanted more of the back and forth I thought was lost somewhat. Nonetheless, this book had excellent characters! The parents on both sides were amazing, and I don't say that lightly since I honestly dislike most familial/parental relationships in romance books. But this felt warm, real, authentic, sweet without ever being saccharine. Perfect. I thought Reese was brave. Seeing women put their feelings out there in romance always amazes and scares me. Jason was a great character as well, though I'd have liked to learn a bit more about his interior, like a little more about his army life but this was good too. And it was a nice twist seeing a non-PTSD veteran. There is a lot I loved here: the dialogue, the back stories, the Terminator, the niece, the class, the response papers woven in, the stance on Creative Writing, the Black consciousness, the best friendship, the frenemy, the brothers, the duplex. A lot! Excellent book that surpassed my expectations and I'm glad I kept reading :-D

Jason is an older student completing his degree later in his life and needs the literature course that Reese's mother teaches to complete his degree. On the side Jason works for his father's dealership so he sometimes attends the class in his back of the dealership mechanics uniform. Reese has a few interactions with Jason that gives off a love/hate vibe and as they interact they both learn there is more than what you see. I enjoyed most of this story; however, there were a few things that turned me off. The use of the N-word in any dialogue of modern contemporary literature turns me off!! Luckily, it was only used a few times but it was still jarring. Also the abrupt ending left me just angry because I am pretty sure the next books in the series are standalones as well. I am still really interested in completing the series because all of the characters made me want to know their stories. This specific video review will be included in the August 2019 wrap-up.

You see the attraction quickly and you just want them to fall in love because *whispers* they totally will. They're perfect for each other and you can see that/read that easily.

    The "princess" and the "mechanic" have a moment, or two, filled with flirty, smart, banter. My favorite contemporary novels are the ones where the attraction starts with the two MCs loving each others....brains. The nice body parts are just icing on the cake. The banter is great. The grown-up emotion is a joy to read. The relationships between the MCs and their parents is a delight. Just all around fun because the characters are so well crafted.

Shortly after she bumps (literally) into Jason, one of the students, and they have a bit of hate-banter about it...not knowing Jason is the writer of the paper she connected to earlier. They have a few more run-ins, he thinks she’s uppity & that she probably looks down on him, a 28-year-old college student showing up in his mechanic clothes. But over time Reese and Jason realize there is way more heat between them, especially after their banter sessions. Once they’re together, the electricity and steaminess just cranks up...these two are perfect for one another and I love how connected they are but also not afraid to push one another. There is very low-drama to their relationship and I honestly loved that, we don’t need conflict around the relationship in all the reads. Jason, a former Army soldier, also reveals to Reese early on that he is an amputee and shows her his prosthetic leg. He was definitely worried over her reaction since most reactions he got were people wanting to help him or pity him or are just repulsed, but Reese had zero issues and treated him as normal and I loved to see it. I really enjoyed all the side characters as well, Reese’s relationship with both her mom and best friend was so much fun. I loved Jason’s relationship with his dad, his brothers, and his niece. I am so glad I read this author and can’t wait to dive into all the reads now!

In this book there is non of that cringy stuff and everything feels very realistic. Like, there is banter between the characters that makes sense because it fits with their personalities. The dialoge feels so dynamic, especially in the beginning. This is a hate-to love love, so of course they don’t like each other in the beginning. Reese is our heroine and she is a graduate assistant in her mothers class. Jason is a non-traditional student, getting his degree after being discharged from the military. All the scenes with them together just worked, they were very believable and their chemistry was fire. The pettiness in het beginning was just so funny to me, I could really recognize myself in it lol. That’s probably why I like these characters so much. Anyways, if you're looking for a book where the characters don't play games, act immature and silly, and work towards having a mature relationship; you should read this book for sure. I have been sleeping on this author but not anymore, already read the second book in this series.

    Contemporary Romance : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 CW : PTSD, Cheating, Death of a Parent(s) As always an excellent read from CCJ! Black love and excellence all around on this one. I really enjoyed their banter and the sort of "hate-to-love" frankness that was going on. The way Jason's prosthetic was introduced was refreshing and I loved that it wasn't made to be an issue or hindrance in him being a 'man'. The subplot was also just the cutest.

    This book has been a rollercoaster for me. First impression: I was not at all impressed with Reese. Her recoiling at the sight of Jason's mechanic shirt, no thanks. And I know it's more or less explained away later, but I didn't buy it fully. The middle part of the book: I loved it! I appreciated so much Reese's self-confidence, her snarkiness, how strong she is. LOVED that. And what can I say about Jason, he was so funny from the beginning. The end: I will not go into details here to avoid spoil This book has been a rollercoaster for me. First impression: I was not at all impressed with Reese.

The end: I will not go into details here to avoid spoilers, but what happened there is one of my least favourite tropes ever, like, ever ever. I am just not on board with it and whenever a book has that without a strong explanation behind it, it dampers my enjoyment A LOT. So yeah, nice book, I really enjoyed the middle part and their relationship, especially the banter, but at the end of the day not for me.

    If you didn't already know, let me just tell you... This book was HILARIOUS. I haven't laughed this hard at (or with) characters in so long! I didn't realize it until I started, but I needed a break from some of the emotionally heavy stuff I was reading and Reese and Jason were the perfect remedy! Without giving away too much of the story, Reese was already attracted to Jason's intellect and that attraction grew once she was able to put a face, body and name to the brain.

I didn't realize it until I started, but I needed a break from some of the emotionally heavy stuff I was reading and Reese and Jason were the perfect remedy! Without giving away too much of the story, Reese was already attracted to Jason's intellect and that attraction grew once she was able to put a face, body and name to the brain. Her strategy for dealing with Jason was simple. To be the best Petty Betty that she could be, and boy was she good at it. The thing is, if the author wasn't as talented as she is, this could have gone very wrong and Reese could have ended up on the "annoying bish" shelf! But thankfully that was not the case. Her attitude was all the more attractive to Jason. To him, this made her that much more of a willing competitor in their cat and mouse game. Now Jason... Ohhhh Jason! Meanwhile he's playing it cool.... He's the non-traditional college student and former military man that has had his share of women pitying him. So his way to combat that is to be almost everything except a gentleman to Reese. But little did he know, that just made him more attractive to her. "Why does he have to be all sexy and friggin...... bionic? Not fair." They were both young, career oriented and "mostly" healthy adults that sort of ended up in a situationship with each other. The chemistry between them was on point, add to that, they were both really smart and their conversations were anything but empty! Getting Schooled is a HEA with so much funny in it, you won't be disappointed! This was a great start to The Wright Brothers series. I find myself drawn to Christina C Jones' books that are more on the comedic side and this one did not disappoint so I'm looking forward to more in this series and from this author!

    Do yourself a favor and listen to this on audio book. The narrators are AMAZING. Graduate assistant Reese is astonished when she discovers Jason, a 28 year old Army Veteran taking her mother's class and challengers her every word, is the same person who writes the passionate, intelligent, and oh so sexy term paper she's fallen in love with. Jason finds himself finding more and more reasons to spar with the princess who grew up so differently than him but who also seems to be the one woman he can Do yourself a favor and listen to this on audio book.

Opposites attract in this delicious enemies to lovers tale that also features an amazing secondary cast of characters I'm dying to know more about. Please and thank you for a novella featuring the romance between Jason's Dad and Reese's mom! CW for parental death (off page, in the past), grief, panic attacks, alcohol use I'm hiding this detail about Jason behind a spoiler not because it is bad but because it was so good and it was so unexpected! (view spoiler)[When Reese and Jason finally decide to have sex, Reese discovers Jason has a prosthetic leg! It is such a minor part of the story but so excellently handled and I loved this rep.

    3 1/2 Platypires Getting Schooled by Christina C. Jones This was truly a fun read that I really enjoyed. Certain parts had me cracking up. I felt I was reading a story about my friends. I felt a connection with the dialogue between the characters which btw is a tad more slang based but not overt. I felt it made the characters more real. I liked the dynamic between Reece and Jason. They were just a great couple. The way they pushed each others buttons was just delightful and fun to read. I only h 3 1/2 Platypires Getting Schooled by Christina C.

A few scenes were predictable and I did find the ending to be lackluster. While not a bad ending it just didn't end with a bang. Now all that being said, I can't wait to read more from Christina C. Jones and especially the next book in this series. (This book can be read as a standalone. ) I would recommend this novel for those looking for a quick romance with a few hot sex scenes.

    3.75 Stars I will be honest, I read this after I read a book that was a serious mind fuck so maybe I wasn’t in the right state of mind to read this RomCom. It was funny and it had some sexy scenes in it but for some reason it just fell short for me. Again, it probably is just me since it seems as if most people really liked it.

    4 stars! * "I belong to you now?" Getting Schooled was such a sweet and fun read! The writing was a pleasure to read and the banter between Reese and Jason, our main characters and narrators, was lovely. I always love when characters who like each other tease each other like that, in good fun, and that brings them closer together. Reese and Jason were wonderful narrators! I really liked that Jones decided to write about them being older in university, as I am also older in university 4 stars! * "I belong to you now?" Getting Schooled was such a sweet and fun read!

I always love when characters who like each other tease each other like that, in good fun, and that brings them closer together. Reese and Jason were wonderful narrators! I really liked that Jones decided to write about them being older in university, as I am also older in university lol, and how focused they were on their studies and how hard they worked to achieve their dreams. Their first meeting was so funny to me and I loved that little bit of enemies-to-lovers thing they had going on. The romance was also super sweet--and a bit steamy! I really liked how Jason gently nudged Reese into communicating openly with him and to share her thoughts and how honest he was with her in return. That made me love them together and how their relationship developed. The one thing I did have an issue with was how quick Reese was at jumping to conclusions and snapping at Jason because of that. I'm not a fan of that in any kind of romance, though I did appreciate how that quickly turned to teasing once things were smoothed out. In the end, Getting Schooled entertained me quite a bit during an afternoon and a half. It was exactly the kind of sweet fun I needed! I'll definitely check out the other books in the series. * Series: #1 in The Wright Brothers series. POV: Told from Reese and Jason's POV. Content Warnings: (view spoiler)[Loss of a parent. One description of a panic attack. Trauma related to car accidents. (hide spoiler)] Instalove: (view spoiler)[Not between Reese/Jason. (hide spoiler)] Steam: A bit steamy! Love Triangle: (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)] Cheating: (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)] Cliffhanger: No. HEA: (view spoiler)[Yes! (hide spoiler)] Up Next: Pulling Doubles.
