Summary

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? 

The Blind Date is a full-length steamy romantic comedy. It's a stand-alone.

Algorithms for the win

Riley and Noah are perfect for one another but they would have never realized it without a little help from the BlindDate app that Noah and Riley's brother River created. This is a feel good book about finding your other half where you least expect to. It is funny and sexy and sweet and the characters are all great. This author is an automatic read/listen for me. I love everything she writes and she never fails to surprise me with new books. This is a great story and I loved everything about it.

This book is well written, the characters are all thought out and developed, and it made me feel good to listen to it. The heat is off the charts but beyond that the love these two have for each other and their family and friends are just great. I highly recommend this book.

Erin Mallon and Lance Greenfield are great narrating this book. Erin brought all the perky for Riley Sunshine and Lance had Noah down pat. Great job for both.

I loved it and highly recommend it.

Going in blind!

Every wonder how it would be to have a dating app that doesn't have a picture? You have to get to know the person to see if they are compatible. While to us older people, it seems logical and the best way to find the person you match too. And Noah thinks so too! After developing he and his lucrative app Friendzone, they take the leap into dating with this new, fresh idea. And to see if it is a success, Noah tries it out. Riley Sunshine doesn't have time for dating. As a successful blogger, she spends her time sending out positivity. But she is convinced to try The Blind Date app. When these two meet on the app, will there be sparks? And when they meet in person, will they ignite? Lauren Landish has crafted a laugh out loud funny, heart warming story that had me hooked. These two are so good together, and seem like the perfect fit. But there are obstacles and a few unpredictable twists and turns that could show just how good or bad this app works! You will have to listen to find out just how victorious a computer algorithm can be!

Erin Mallon and Lance Greenfield had me laughing the entire way through this story. Perfect comedic timing, voices that fit the characters and a chemistry that comes through letting us fall for this couple. I love them together and they filled my heart as I listened.

A date with a fantastic story

Lauren Landish did it again . This can be listened as a stand-alone . You will be glued to the listen. Lauren Landish is an amazing storyteller. The heroine and hero are so different character wise . But they both are perfect for each other
Hero is Riley Hero is Noah
Riley is all about positive energy. Noah Is a workaholic. They both have no time to date until they meet for a blind date , an app that was just developed. Grab it and find out how they interact. Does Riley positive energy rob off on Noah .
There was one point that just kept on going on and on with Riley positive posts

The performance of Erin Mallon and Lance Greenfield was outstanding. They both brought the characters to life .

very entertaining & modern take on a love story

I'll admit at first I didn't care for the narrators as they sound like overly dramatic radio announcers but I eventually didn't notice or maybe they toned it down. The story itself is very entertaining and modern. it is also realistic with both characters' very real insecurities throwing them a speed bump in their love story. I like how it was not yet another workplace romance as I seem to be listening to a lot of those lately. I love the part how Riley's mom tries to set her up with a secret "blind date". that could be its own funny story.

All the feels

This book hits the spot! I was looking for something with some humor and love and this book totally delivered. There’s not too much drama or angst just sunshine and love.

So delightfully fun!

This is a delightfully fun read that is is packed with feels. I simply adored this book. The storyline offers up a well crafted blend of emotion, humor, drama, twists, sweetness and cuteness that is topped with a very light sprinkling of a zany hijinks. I thought this made for a really enjoyable read. I felt the app and the texting elements gave everything a very current feel. The pairing of sunshine/grumpy worked beautifully and I fell so hard for this couple. The attraction and chemistry was easy to feel and electric. Riley and Noah make a heart melting, feel the heat couple that will have you swooning, smiling and catching a major case of the feels.

Right In Front of You

Erin Mallon and Lance Greenfield suited the character voices for Riley and Noah. This book about a dating app called Blind Date was designed by best friends Noah and River. River's younger sister is Riley. Noah's younger sister is Arielle. Riley and Arielle are best friends. A mix up occurs when Riley signs up for the app Blind Date. This is a feel good book with a HEA with many panty-melting scenes. I enjoyed listening to this book.

Little too Pollyanna, a lot too millennial

“Normally, when a woman grabs my shirt like that, it’s not for tacos.”
There was nothing terrible about this book, but for some reason this fell flat for me. Maybe it’s that I don’t relate to a sunny influencer who gushes about getting the perfect Marilynn Monroe shot for her followers. Maybe it’s that Noah is a workaholic stick-in-the-mud. Maybe it’s that I never felt the chemistry between the characters or the narrators (I’ve liked each narrator in separate books, but their respective versions of Riley and Noah felt like completely different people).

“When did you decide to grow out your landing strip?”
The cute would clash with the crude. Also, there was a lot of dull dating and ck-blocking, making this more of a slow burn than a saucy sizzle. My sense is that Ms Landish just threw this one together, mashing the standard rom-com puzzle pieces without ensuring that they truly fit. All the tropes and characters are there, from the out-going Elizabeth Banks style BFF to the froufrou dog. But, considering Riley’s influencer brand is her signature sunny yellow apparel, you’d think the cover would be yellow or more cartoon cute.

Okay, yeah. I mostly didn’t love Riley the Pollyanna. Too syrupy sweet.

At least there were tacos.
