Publisher's Summary

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....

Cute romance

This was the cutest little romance story. Great, fun, quirky characters and storyline. New series and I can't wait for more. I loved Haleigh and Ian and how oblivious they were to the fact that they were made for each other. Great read!

I think that the narration started out a little rocky in the beginning but then the narrator was able to bring these lovable characters to life.

Fun Meet-Cute

This story was cute in all the best ways. The characters were funny, entertaining, and relate-able. I always love a book with socially awkward characters, they always make me think of myself!

The narrator wasn't bad but is not who I would have chosen for this book. If the narrator would have put more emotion in her voice, I think that would have changed things.

Awesome Listen!!

Counting on You by Laura Chapman really pulled me in. I found myself wanting Haleigh to overcome her insecurities and for her ex to have karma visit him. This book is a sweet story and Rebecca Hansen does an awesome job of bringing the characters to life. I enjoyed the distinguishable voices she gave the characters. The story was original and is a standalone listen. I will most definitely listen to more books by this talented author and narrator. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Delightful

This was a delightful little morsel! I really enjoy fake relationship stories and hearing them build that friendship and/or romance up over time. Ian was such a fun character. He was light and fun and really what Haleigh needed. I really like the sense of fun in the story with the serious issue still being prevalent but not in your face.

This what the first time I listened to Rebecca Hansen. I liked her narration. Miss Hansen does have an extremely soothing voice. I enjoyed the narration even if I did miss a male narration. Overall, I'd listen to this narrator again!

Counting on You

The dreaded high school reunion is coming up. Haleigh can’t go and face the ex who dumped her... but what if she can find a date? Never mind the fact she hasn’t dated in almost 10 years...

Ian has led his company in the development of a new dating app. They just need a good beta test and testimonial to present to the potential investors...

Can a mutually beneficial agreement be arranged between Haleigh and Ian, or will they get more than they bargained for?

Counting on you is a clean, sweet story with lovable, realistic characters. Rebecca Hansen’s narration was well done.

Good

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I enjoyed the story. Loved the way the HEA turned out although about halfway through I knew that was going to happen. Really enjoyed peeping in on the first dates. That's the way so many of my dates have gone. So I can relate. Wish I had the success that these two had. Overall it was a good story.

Romantic comedy at its best


I absolutely loved Laura Chapman’s Counting on You. The first meet was original and the story line very creative. Haleigh and Ian’s banter was priceless and watching them slowly discover that their relationship had shifted beyond friendship was very satisfying. Loved the secondary characters, I look forward to reading the next release in this series and hope that Rebecca Hansen narrates future books. She really brought the characters to life and her comic timing was perfect.

Nothing sour about this story!

Laura Chapman can write the most lovable characters and Counting on You is no exception. Haleigh is getting ready to go to her high school reunion, but is uneasy since Greg, her ex will be there. After overhearing her conversation, Ian, a date app developer, offers to let her be the beta tester for the app and find herself a date. And the fun begins. There is a lot in this story, not just about dating but real life situations. Chapman handles each one with gentleness and compassion. I especially love Ian, as she has made his character a little clumsy, that computer geekness coming through but with a warmth about him too hard not to fall for. Haleigh is perfect as she is, learning about herself and accepting who she is. It's a wonderful listen!

Rebecca Hansen voices the story with enthusiasm. It's my first listen by her and I found her pace good and her voices easily distinguishable. She brings the dating world some excitement with the many characters she is given with the many dates Haleigh goes on! I will be watching for more from her.

A Wonderful & Sweet Story! Great Listen🎧

“Amarillo Sour” is the only thing sour in this book, it is a sweet and enjoyable book. The storylines are interesting and well written. The characters are likable and nicely developed and the chemistry between the leads, Haleigh and Ian, is off the charts. I loved how Haleigh grew as a person, grew stronger and more self confident. So glad she finally stood up for herself by the end. Yay for Haleigh!! Also glad Ian came to his senses, he is a nice guy, kind and thoughtful, they make the perfect couple. Laura Chapman, thank you for another great story I am looking forward to see what is next for the “Amarillo Sour” series

I listened to the Audible edition, Rebecca Hansen does a nice job narrating and telling the story. She brings the characters to life from the pages to your ears.

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

This is a good feeling read/listen. Funny in a lot of places and a good reflection on modern day dating!
Rebecca does a top job in her narration of this book.
