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 . . .

There is way more to this story than just a romance and redemption, or of a man having to choose between a career and being happy. We see that life isn’t about what others think of us, it’s how we perceive ourselves that matters. If we have just one person to have our back and we can stand on our own.

She just wanted a date for her reunion and he just wanted to someone to test his project.

Haleigh has a few weeks till her 10 year high school reunion. Her ex, Greg, is going to be there and after he cheated an her and left her broken-hearted and in ruins. She wants him to see her as renewed and redeemed. Will finding a date in an App help her out or make her seem more pathetic?

Ian’s life is all research, coding and work. His new dating App is about ready to launch and he finds Haleigh to help him beta test it. Throughout the research on the dating App they began spending more time together and discovering more about each other. Does she NEED to continue finding dates on his app and does he WANT her to keep finding dates on his app?

“I always figured I slow down and enjoy life someday. You make me want someday to be today.”

I got so happy seeing this Haleigh and Ian come together, discover their feelings and fall in love. Laura Chapman has written a realistic love story, one where you see the reasoning why they could have fallen for each other, then seen their faults and how it can break them down but also learning from their mistakes to build themselves back up.

There is a bit of an awareness of panic attacks and how life can be so consuming and overwhelming that it helps having someone there who unconditionally cares about you to settle. Being one of the many that has battled with anxiety, I can greatly appreciate how the author has me feeling normal.

I’m excited this continues as a series and glimpse Haleigh and Ian throughout other people stories in the bar where they, and maybe others, fall in love, The Amarillo Sour.
