"Rematch" by Erynn Mangum

About this book:

  “With two matches under her belt, Lauren’s ready to get back to work. Lucky for her, her job at The Brandon Knox Photography Studio makes it even easier to work her magic on her best friend and boss, Brandon, and the adorable receptionist, Hannah. And since she’s at Shawn’s café every day anyway (a girl’s gotta feed her caffeine and chocolate addictions, doesn’t she?), why not look for his perfect match as well?
  But with all her love-connection luck, Lauren’s thrown for a loop when her dad announces that he’s heading out of town for a singles’ retreat. And in the midst of panicking about her dad and potential future stepmom, there's also the matter of Ryan: Love interest or friend? Only time, vats of coffee, and pounds of chocolate will tell!”

My personal Rating-
I’m not sure if I liked book #1 or book #2 better! I haven’t laughed so hard since…the last Erynn Mangum book I read! Hahaha! ;) Laurie is so off the wall and witty that you can’t help but love her! :)
