Title: Click: An Online Love Story
Author: Lisa Becker
286 pages


Fast approaching her 30th birthday and finding herself not married, not dating, and without even a prospect or a house full of cats, Renee Greene, the heroine of Click: An Online Love Story, reluctantly joins her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles. The story unfolds through a series of emails between Renee and her best friends (anal-compulsive Mark, the overly-judgmental Ashley and the over-sexed Shelley) as well as the gentlemen suitors she meets online. From the guy who starts every story with “My buddies and I were out drinking one night,” to the egotistical “B” celebrity looking for someone to stroke his ego, Renee endures her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates. Fraught with BCC’s, FWD’s and inadvertent Reply to All’s, readers will root for Renee to “click” with the right man.

The format of this book is very interesting – it is told in a series of emails between 4 friends and then Renee’s dates through an online dating site. Part of me wishes that there would have been also some scenes that weren’t via email (like Renee’s dates or her birthday party) but it didn’t make the book any less enjoyable.

There were just a few things that I just couldn’t see happening….like when Renee BCC’s her friend Shelly on emails, when the person hits reply she won’t see that reply so not sure how that could be part of the book. Also, when Renee is giving details of where she is going and with who (naming a name) yet the guy’s name was never mentioned in the emails…perhaps it was in the emails that weren’t in the book?

Anyway, outside of those two things it was funny to read the snarkiness between friends on their love life and friendship and to see their insecurities as well.

We give this book 4 paws….and watch for a review of Double Click and Right Click in the very near future!
