Counting on You
(Amarillo Sour #1)
by Laura Chapman
Is love worth the risk?
Math teacher Haleigh Parde has no desire to change her single status until she receives an invitation to her high school reunion. With her ex spreading rumors she needs a date and fast. Desperate times call for desperate measures and Haleigh finds herself meeting a blind date at a neighborhood bar called Amarillo Sour . . .
After watching Haleigh crash and burn, app developer Ian Henning makes her a proposition. If she’ll provide honest feedback on his new dating app, he’ll guarantee her a date to knock the socks off her former classmates. Even better, he—and the other Amarillo Sour regulars—will help her navigate the rocky road of dating.
Through setups ranging from awkward to absurd, Haleigh discovers her matchmaker might just be better than the matches. And Ian wonders if she’s the answer to everything he’s worked for professionally. Or is she something much, much more.
Finding love in the most uncommon places and in unexpected ways is how Haleigh and Ian’s story came to be. We’ve all been there – getting invites to our high school reunion and worrying about who to bring as a date. Too bad for you if you aren’t yet married or have not been in a relationship yet.
Upon learning about her ex-boyfriend taunting her single status on their upcoming high school reunion, Haleigh crawled out of her dark, gloomy shell and seriously set herself out there to sought out her date and probably pretend partner in the said reunion. She wanted to prove to everyone that she’d already moved on from her good-for-nothing ex-boyfriend (who was bringing his wife to the event).
When she met Ian, he was just looking for someone to test the dating app that he developed. And Haleigh seemed to be the perfect match. One thing led to another, like spending more time together (and flirting). What happened next, is for you to find out.
I, for one, had never been a fan of dating sites or apps. But I find this things interesting and intriguing. Learning more about love matches and finding the possible “The One” through online connection was made even more interesting by Laura Chapman’s Counting On You. This has been a short read, but it’s full of emotions and packed with fun and heart-melting scenes. I loved how this story made me smile and giggle all through-out the night. Can’t wait to read the next romantic story in the Amarillo Sour series!!
