⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW: The Blind Date by Lauren Landish

Sugary sweet with plenty of spice, this opposites attract romance was a lot of fun. I love a grumpy/sunshine romance, and I also love unique meet cutes, so this caught my attention right away. The hero is my kind of grumpalicious workaholic, and I loved watching him fall. It’s not long before he’s in over his head, and this sweet, sassy heroine turns his world upside down. I also loved that they knew (and disliked) each other just a little bit before meeting through a dating app, and I adored the use of texting. This was on track to be an easy 5-star rating for me, but our hero falls a little TOO fast, so there was a definite lull in the middle. It became almost sickly sweet and there was too much focus on our heroine’s career as an influencer. Don’t get me wrong – this is also SUPER steamy, and our couple has some serious chemistry – but I think the beast was tamed too quickly.

The story follows Noah, a moody workaholic who is just putting the finishing touches on the dating app that he developed. While testing out the matchmaking process for research purposes, Noah creates a profile for himself using a fake name. To his surprise, Noah discovers that there’s a woman on the app who has been deemed his near-perfect match. The two strike up a conversation, and it’s not long before they’re getting closer via text. Though they’ve never even seen photos of each other, there are feelings on both sides before they meet in person. The only problem? That meeting doesn’t go according to plan. Turns out, Noah’s dream girl is actually his best friend’s little sister – also known as the woman who thinks he’s nothing but a work-obsessed jerk.

Honestly, I was really loving this in the beginning. The app storyline worked for me in a big way, and I loved how close Noah and Riley get before they even meet. That part of the story had me swooning and completely engaged. It just didn’t last long enough, and my interest started to wane. I feel kinda weird saying that the book became too sweet and easy for me, but there was definitely a LOT of that in the middle. Sure, Noah and Riley burned up the pages (she brought the HEAT this time), but a significant portion of the book is just them being together. There’s nothing that I didn’t like about the story – and I considered a 5-star rating – but it really does drag in the middle. If you’re in the mood for something sweet yet sexy (you’ll never look at a treadmill the same way), then this will certainly satisfy. I received an early copy and am voluntarily leaving a review of this best friend’s little sister romance.


A Blind Date? It could be a match made in heaven. Or a total disaster.

I’m Riley Watson, bringing a dash of sunshine here and a drop of positivity there. That’s how I live my life, focusing on the good that’s all around us if we look for it. There’s just one thing missing—Mr. Right. 
So I agree to try a new dating app and find my perfect match. The catch? No pictures.

Fun times… until my Blind Date shows up. That can’t be the same man I’ve been talking to all week!

Noah Daniels is my brother’s best friend and we have absolutely nothing in common.
He’s grumpy, I’m sunny.
He’s a workaholic executive, I’m a freelance influencer.
He plans everything, and I go with the flow.
This has to be a horrible joke—or is it?

I shouldn’t want him, but when he touches me, I turn into a mushy pile of hot hunger.
I should tell him to get lost, but when he opens his heart, I can’t turn him away.
And the more I know, the more I want him.

Is the wrong man my Mr. Right after all?
