For Annabel Taylor, romance is business. As the co-owner of an up-and-coming dating app, love is big money. But business means she's not willing to indulge in any romantic shenanigans herself.

Indy Chambers has a bucket list, and falling in love before she's thirty is just waiting to be checked off. But since she's never had a relationship last more than a date or two, that box doesn't look like it's going to be ticked any time soon.

When Annabel's flawless algorithm matches her with Indy, neither of them is exactly thrilled. But Annabel's business could depend on making their date a marketing success, and her algorithm could be just what Indy needs to finally find the love she's been searching for.

Before long, #IndyAnna is trending on social media and the two are inescapably bound together, at least in public. But in private, they know that they're not the perfect match. They're too different, they want different things, they live different lives.

Can their differences bring them together? Or is Annabel's perfectly programmed algorithm less flawless than she thought? As the world watches their every move, Indy and Annabel have to decide what it really is they want. And maybe, just maybe, it's each other.

Proceed With Caution:

This book contains an attempted sexual assault.

The Basics:

Love By Numbers is a F/F Contemporary Romance narrated by dating app designer, Annabel, who does not believe in love, and hopeless romantic, musician, Indy. Annabel’s company hosts a contest for one lucky winner to win some free dates in exchange for some social media promotion for the app. Of course, Indy wins after yet another bad date, and the app happens to pair her with Annabel! The two couldn’t be more wrong for each other, but Annabel’s algorithm can’t be that off, can it?

My Thoughts:

I absolutely adored Love By Numbers! It’s an opposites attract, grumpy-sunshine, fake dating extravaganza! If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you’ll know that last one is my absolute favorite. Annabel and Indy’s relationship does start out kind of real. The app matched them together, they met for drinks, but it was kind of a disaster. The two part ways, only to reunite after they essentially went viral (#IndyAnna!). Pretending to date for the cameras is helping Annabel’s business take off and it can provide some much needed exposure for Indy’s music career. Win-win!

Love By Numbers does take a turn, because of course, Annabel and Indy have to start falling for each other for real. This goes against both of their current wants, or so they think. Annabel is a workaholic who planned on remaining single forever rather than forming attachments. Meanwhile, Indy needed a break from the dating scene to gain some perspective. But love doesn’t care what you want, it just shows up! Although dating on social media isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. Scandals are too easy to come by…

Okay, so there’s nothing new, exciting, or groundbreaking about Love By Numbers. It’s a straightforward romance about two people who weren’t looking for love, hated each other on sight, but fell in love anyway, learning the meaning of compromise along the way. It’s just a feel good read. I read it in one afternoon and it left me smiling. I’d say it did what it was suppose to do.

Sharing is caring!

  1. I read another F/F book by Sienna Waters with a similar premise – fake dating – and I loved it. So this is definitely on my TBR list now. Glad you enjoyed it – thanks for putting it on my radar 🙂
