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.

Great romance!

I really enjoyed this book. A sweet little romance. I was pulling for Haleigh and Ian from the beginning. I'm hoping for a book 2 in the series! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Book

Counting on You: Amarillo Sour, Book One was a great read by Laura Chapman. Haleigh is a math teacher who doesn't want to change her single status until she gets an invitation to her class reunion. Her ex has decided to spread rumors about her and now she needs to find a new date. She decides to go on a blind date at Amarillo Sour, a bar that Ian is at. Ian is an app developer of a new dating app and offers to help her after he sees her crash and burn on a date. I absolutely loved reading Haleigh and Ian's story and can't wait to read more by the author.

Such a sweet listen!

This story has themes I think we can all relate to—wanting to forget a painful past, healing a broken heart, feeling like you’re never good enough and just wanting to be loved for exactly who you are. This story has it all and more and Rebecca Hansen’s bright and cheerful voice helped make this listen a lot less emotionally painful for me than if I’d read it.
There are supporting characters who are downright horrible in their behavior towards the main characters and I could feel my blood boil whenever they appeared in a scene! Rebecca infused them with just the right amount of attitude to portray them accurately without being over-the-top in her performance.
This is a really enjoyable sweet romance and I look forward to reading and listening to more from both the author and narrator!

Life doesn’t always go the way you planned

Haleigh is amazing even if at time she doesn’t think so. Her one and only boyfriend left her and spread rumors about her. 10 years later their high school reunion is coming up and he is up to the same games. Haleigh decides to find a date to put some of the rumors to rest. She ends up testing a new dating app and the games begin. I really enjoyed this story and found it sweet and refreshing. I was lost in the story and narration.

Simple, Perfect Love

Counting on You is a must listen. I loved the fact Haleigh was so down to earth and not afraid to let her geek show. So many of us can relate to her “problem” in the book. Living in a small town I so get it.

This story hooked me in and kept there as it unfolded. Counting on You is a sweet, clean romance, but also so much more. This story just goes to show you can find love in the most unexpected places. You just never know.

Clean, fun romance

Haleigh is unmarried and trying to find a date to take to her 10 year high school reunion. She is not looking for a boyfriend. She goes to the local bar, Amarillo Sour, which is like Cheers. There she meets Ian who is creating a dating app and wants her to try it out basically for a test run. Ian agrees to guide and help her so she agrees. This book deals with her insecurities and how Ian really helps her. I think many people have these same insecurities. This is a clean sweet romance. Sometimes people find romance when they are not looking for it.

The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the reader right into the story. I received this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. I must say I like books with more erotic scenes, but I totally enjoyed this book and the characters in it. I highly recommend it.

Loved It!

The first time around I was charmed. The second time around I was emotional. The third time I fell in love. Laura Chapman makes every time feel like a new experience. Counting on You is hard to put down, no matter how many times I read or listen to it. Less than perfect proved to be the perfect match for the romantic in me. I loved it.
